Got a minute?

Just a quick teaser; let me tell ya, that next kit that's coming out? You know, the December one? OMGosh! I love it! Love it! Have almost nothing left of it but little tiny bitty scraps. Seriously. It was out of this world paper scrappy goodness. I was so inspired, that even with my little bit of time that I have to scrap lately, I was able to come up with all kinds of projects! You're gonna love it!

Anyways, the real reason I'm here, is to show off a little of what else I've done:
These are the pumpkins we did up for Halloween.

The background for the photo above is masking tape that I inked up a little to show the ridges of the tape.
The play tokens from Tim Holtz are sooo very fun to play with. I've been using them alot lately.I stamped the title with blue paint onto the orange cardstock, and once dry, went around it with some pen work. And then cut out a few flowers from the paterned paper and added that too.
So thank you for letting me show off a little. I'm hoping to get some more time this weekend and play a little. How about you?
and p.s. I did the font thing from a post or two back. Very awesome site! I am still hoping to figure out a way to share what I did. I'm going to try burning it to a CD today, and see how that works. Will let you know!

So my scrappy friends, have you had a chance yet to pick up the Novemeber kit? I gotta tell ya, I love it! All of my favorite colours... red, black, cream... it was so fun and easy to work with.
Here are my samples:

This is my good friend Jean, and her husband John on their wedding day. Isn't she beautiful?

and I love seeing close ups of other peoples work, so I'm ready for my close up, Mr. Deville:

Now, I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not, but you don't have to use the Embellie words "as is". Sometimes I want to squish the letters together closer to make it fit somewhere, like on this heart I cut out of cardboard and covered with patterened paper (shown below). Because the word I wanted to use was techniquely longer than what I wanted, I carefully cut the letters apart and then applied them to where I wanted them. You have to watch that you don't mix up the letters, because once they're down, they're down.

That lace... oooh, I loved it! Used up every bit of it! (and I still have to get rid of that yellow tablecloth! Gak!)

And here's my girls:

I ran very thin strips of paper through my dymo labeler and then gently inked them.

And I can hear you saying, "but Ronni, I didn't get an embellie that said Powerful in my kit" And you know what? I didn't either. But I'm such a rebel, that I used some of the letters they sell seperately at the store and made up my own word. I placed each letter on squares of paper, inked the edges, and randomly picked letters and raised them with foam squares.

And so that's what I made with my kit, with one exception. I did make the cutest mini album, and I really thought I had a photo of it at home, but I don't, so I'm afraid you'll have to check it out at the store.

And just a quick tease... I picked up Dec's kit last night... OMGosh! So very awesome! So cool! Can't wait to play with it!

Remember me?

Hey scrappy people!, remember me? This is Ronni, sneaking in a little post. I know, I know, it's been awhile since I've blogged, but trust me, I had a bit of a rough summer. But things are better now, and I've got some stuff to show you. That, and it helps if I know what the password is. (thanx, Kari!) *muhwah*

Any ways, I do have photos of the Nov. kit, but I've got other stuff to show you. Check out my girls here:

***note to self*** Ditch that yellow tablecloth!!!

And there is some subtle stamping that I did with a swirl stamp, and distress embossing powder for the background.
