Here are the results of the What Would You Make
With My Stuff? Challenge and swap! I want to say
a big THANK YOU to all the ladies who played along,
all your pieces are so pretty, and it's great how
everything is so different, even though I sent the
exact same items. The images were the only things
that varied, and even they were very similar:
(Thank you to Cris for the "stuff" pic--I didn't
think to take one until the envies were sent!)
The "stuff" included some black lace, iridescent
ribbony something, a girl or woman image plus a flower
image from Altered Pages, tickets in orange and turquoise,
Basic Grey patterned paper, a few tiny jewels & brads,
some translucent plastic stars, and a page from a vintage
textbook. The challenge was to use at least three of
these things prominently, but most of the participants
used much more.
1. These first three photos are from Chris Flynn;
she posted details of her pocket and tag creation
at Redwood Mountain Musings. Chris used almost
everything included in the challenge envie!
That iridescent stuff made a great dragonfly!
2. Here's To A Good Woman by Sharon Briss
Shar at Ill Tempered Ink made a canvas--how pretty
is this? I'm all into greens right now, so this
beauty charmed me right off!
3. hello kitty by Beth Rudolph
That lace was originally black--I really like how
Beth painted it to make it her own for this sweet
tag. (Beth doesn't have a blog, so don't think I'm
ditching her link.)
4. Sing Out by Gerri Herbst
Pretty atc by Gerri at It's All Treasure--she
used that iridescent stuff in the background,
which would never even have occurred to me,
and neither would have making a basket from
5. Happiness Always by Alison Manning
Lovely card by Ali at New England Stamper; I'm
thinking, you know, I sent Ali this envie with this
stuff, but would I have ever made anything nearly
this pretty with it myself??? Uh, duh, no!
6. Admit One by Diane:
Diane used some of everything except the orange
ticket in this beauty. I'm not a "natural" card
maker, so I always enjoy a good nosy around Diane's
blog--1 Card Creator.
7. Listen To Your Heart by Marjie Kemper:
Precious bookmark by Marjie, who always has something
inspiring to see at She Who Stamps and Scraps. Marjie wins double
triple bonus points for sending me the bookmark
in real life, as well as in e-mail life--no, wait,
that means I win! THANK YOU, Marjie!
8. I call this a Card Book--it's by Cris Peacock:
I'm not entirely sure, but I think she used
EVERYTHING in this super fun piece! You can
see more of Cris's goodies at "Cris' Page."
Let Your Dreams Take Flight by Diane K.
I like the flighty trail of gems across this--
you can see more of Diane's art at Diane's Page.
10.I Saw It First by Shelly Schmidt
I'm still looking at this card, soaking in all
the elements . . . mostly I'm surprised to see how
Shelly used my signature--what a great touch!
You can find all the details, and much more, on
Shelly's blog, "My Creative Rumblings."
We had one more player, but due to slight complications
(if you call breaking a leg and a daughter getting married
slight), Mary, whose blog link I can't find to save my life
right now (sorry, Mary!), may not be joining us this time
around . . .
Thank you again, ladies, that was fun!
