Evening Peas! This will be our first weekend thread! Remember Sundays are CATCH UP DAYS but if I am feeling "froggy" as my Daddy used to say I may sneak in a surprise sometimes!

Tomorrow (saturday) it is all about DIY! I want you to dig out your papers, your punches, your glues/glitters, etc etc and make your OWN embellishments. Now you can go hog wild and start from scratch and make it all your own or alter a piece you already own or anywhere on that spectrum, it is all up to you!

When you load up your creation please notate what you made and how you made it, new ideas are always awesome to find!

This challenge goes VERY well with the awesome Counterfeiters! Check them out if you are trying to bust your stash, they ROCK!
Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog

Don't forget to upload, label it in our gallery, link it back here, and praise up those Peas!

I cheat and use my Cricut if I want to make my own embellishments! I will make some tonight. We are taking DS4 and DS1 to get pics taken and I'm going to make some birthday embellishments off the B is for Boy cartridge. I love layering different colors together to make more complex decorations. It can take awhile but it's worth the effort. Looking forward to catching up this weekend! I started the Day 1 challenge but haven't finished.

I tried making some enamel dot like things yesterday - Some I tried just painting nail polish over gems I had - well my painting skills leave something to be desired so those are not going to be on anything. Then I just dropped drips of nail polish on wax paper and let them dry overnight and was able to peal them off the paper this morning - they are flatter than enamel dots but they are kinda cool. I have a guest coming today but will try playing with them tonight or tomorrow.

I love doilies but have not been able to figure out just how to use one on a page, so I got the idea to use it as a base for something else that i just don't have a problem putting on a page flowers. I took a doily, misted it, added flowers with a bit of stickles and some ribbon. I love it, I think I will make some more with other colors and have them to place on my pages.

CADA DAY 3 - DYI EMBELLISHMENT

Oh nail polish as enamel like dots! Great idea!

I don't use doilies but I like yours Maribeth!

The weather is not real great today so hopefully I can get some scrapping in today if DS will let me put him down. It would be nice if I stayed up on my OWN challenges huh? LOL!

I did it! I can't even believe it myself. I tried 12 x 12 scrapbooking but gave it up for PL. I was having a really hard time and thought I'd given up traditional lo's for good. Thanks for hosting this challenge and getting me going again. I hope I can keep it up.

I'm thought about what to make and landed on flowers.

I spent the morning, however, getting #1 Circles done. It eliminates a lot of thought when you are limited. After I found the photo that went with my idea, it didn't take too long.

Now I'll go back to embellishment thought.

I finally finished challenge #1. I'm not totally in love with it, but it's done! I'll try to post it later, my computer is being SUPER slow today!

We are going to Portrait Innovations to get portraits for DS1 1st Birthday (which is tomorrow!) and DS4 in about an hour. DS4 turned 4 in July and I realized we haven't had professional portraits of him since he was 18 months (bad mommy! bad bad mommy!!) I love that I'll walk out with portraits in my hands! Maybe they can be my inspiration for challenge 2 and 3.

All Praised Up! Everybody's stuff is looking great!! Very inspiring!!

I took out my Christmas supplies this week. When I am in the midst of the Holiday Season, I am always overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle. I had some fun playing around with embellishment clusters.

Ok be honest. I had fun doing this one but hubby is not really a fan so now I am worried since it is WAY different than my normal. It does count toward day 2 (all pattern paper) and today DIY those pockets! HONEST PLEASE!

We have been out of town but I am back now and eager to get caught up! I have ideas but need time to get the projects done. I have even taken a picture of my desk - just need to upload it. It's a good thing that Sunday is a catch up day.

Absolutely charming ....

GOod morning Peas! Happy catch up day! I got another 2 layouts done but I don't like one of them. I have a HORRIBLE time with holiday pages, this one was Halloween. Any tips? This is why this CHA does not cost me near as much since I don't use a lot of Halloween/Christmas collections/etc. I will get those up later on.

It is just 1020 here and I have done the grocery shopping for the next two weeks, wrote the packing list for our trip, put the groceries up, walked 2 laps around the church and clocked in 30 minutes on the wii, shower and errands and then some scrapping if I can make myself come inside. It is beautiful out!

Enjoy your catch up day. I hope to see LOTS of new layouts to praise up when we get done!

Here is my layout for day #3. I kind of cheated by using the PP accordian medallion but it matched the color & theme too perfectly to not use. I did cut out some pieces from pp for the embellishment groupings. I am hoping to get a layout done today but need to finish painting my dd's room & have a haircut appt later, so we'll see.

This is the One

Loving everyone's creations.

Those who were asking about the dino paper in challenge 2, it's an older Imaginisce line from 2010. It's called Dino-Roar.

I finished up the embellishment challenge this morning. I used regular glue so it took awhile to dry and I really had to work to get it anchored into the shape I wanted. I like the way the flower turned out, but next time I'll use a narrower piece so it isn't so big. I'd like to use three small ones instead of one big one. I read that you can use border strips and I have plenty of those so I'll try that another time.

I'm looking forward to see what the challenge for Monday will be.

Another great challenge Crystal!! I don't usually make many of my own embellishments but when I do, it is frequently with my Silhouette. I already have an idea for this one though!

Off to play with paper!

Well I managed to catch up on all the challenges and do a little praising in my scrappy time today. Here is a link to layout from day 1 using circles...just between us the circles under the orange banner are covering up my journaling I did not like

CADA Day 1 Hello There Darling

I love seeing what all of you are DIYing...it is not my forte to make my own embellishments!

Wicked busy weekend trying to get everything ready to ship to DD for her birthday. I thought I was going to have a couple more days but with all the commotion over there about borders the mail has been running slower than usual. I did post Day 2's challenge in the CADA gallery but never got to the embellishments today. I love using my melting pot, alcohol inks and gesso (not together!) to make old embellishments new and more current though. I'm sure I'll have some examples in later challenges where I can footnote it. haven't checked the new challenges yet but can't wait!
