A Quick Post with a Quick Lesson

In the spirit of not neglecting my blog for too long (and after being inspired to post by looking at several of the blogs I follow) I'm going to do a quick post with some projects completed not too long ago. **There is a quick, but oh so important, little lesson that I just learned today that has nothing to do with this post so make sure to read to the end!**

I hosted Friday Night Challenge over at Scraps of Color on October 12th and the theme was Celebrate the Eight! in commemoration of SOC's 8th birthday. The week-long challenge was to celebrate YOU! Make a layout (single- or double-page) that highlights EIGHT things you love about you! Here is my take on the challenge:

The challenges that Friday night were to:
1)   Make a square card with eight squares on it. (Square cardstock or patterned paper bases do not count as part of the eight squares.) Include one or more stamped images, a sentiment of your choice and some bling.

2)  Create a card using only one piece of plain cardstock to mat your design and at least 8 different patterns and/or colors of washi/decorative tape. Your card base does not count as your piece of cardstock. 

3)  Complete a one- or two-page layout using the following sketch. Use 8 DIFFERENT embellishments on your layout.

Thanks for looking, but don't leave without your quick lesson for today!

DON'T leave new rubber stamps (or old ones for that matter) where the puppy can get to them. They will be rendered useless!


P.S. Don't forget to vote on Tuesday!


  1. Love that lesson, lol. Lovely LOs and cards. I really enjoyed participating in the challenge; now I'm hooked on Washi tape - just what I needed: another stash for my stash.

  2. What a pretty layout of you Ms. Karen!!! Your other projects are nice too!! lol!!

  3. Karen you are too funny. Your projects are all very nice.

  4. I really enjoyed the Friday nite challenge hosted by you. Your completed projects are very nice! I'll certainly pass that learned lesson onto my craftyfriends with puppies ;-).
