Busy, busy, busy

The past few weeks -- okay, actually the past few months -- have passed in a complete blur. Maybe it's just the back-to-school rush, but I really feel like I've been living in some kind of time warp because it can't possibly be the middle of September already. I even saw Christmas decorations at Michael's last week. Seriously?!

I've been doing a little scrapping in 10-minute bursts here and there. But today, I finally had a good block of time to finish projects and, more importantly, take photos of the ones I've completed. Sometimes that can be a job in itself.

This first one is from Aida Huron's sketch for the September sketch challenge on the Imaginisce blog. Check out all the details here and play along for your chance to win some yummy goodies!

The Apple Cider collection has become one of my favorite Imaginisce lines. So here are a couple more projects I did with these same papers and embellishments.

The journaling is hidden in that cute Maya Road envelope. To embellish the envelope, I used one of the Imaginisce acrylic stamps -- the tree -- and colored it in with Tombow markers. That little birdie is a denim sticker...lovin' those!

The flowers across the top are a combination of Maya Road pleated ribbon flowers and lollipop flowers topped with an i-Top brad and some i-Rock studs.

And finally, I made this little card by hand-cutting the leaves from the patterned paper and the trunk from the backing of the rub-ons.

Might've gone a little too crazy with the distress ink on the edges, but I kind of like it. It definitely adds to the rustic feel.

I'll have more projects to post later this week. I have lots of catching up to do!
