Sheets of Papertrey Ink cardstock waiting to be chopped into A2 sized bits. Mostly I am in the beginnings of a 100 day scrapbooking challenge lol. I figure if I put 15 minutes or more into scrap related activities that's good for a day. Most of my pages take some time to sort out the pictures, the embellishments (making the embellishments), writing the journaling, etc. I really enjoy the process. I tried Assembly Line Scrapbooking, but it just didn't resonate with me. So I have heaps and heaps of things to scrap, but I feel really connected to the pages I make.

These are mostly going to be various frames on my Harry Potter pt. 2 DVD cover page complete with lots of stamping and inking and you get the idea lol. Also I am really obsessed with heat embossing. in the way back is a container of clear, just out of shot is a bag of clear, nearly washed out in front of the lamp is a jar of Weathered White by Ranger, off to the right is a jar of Zing! Neon Yellow and a new jar of Altenew's Translucent Crisp Pearl that I have yet to open. Perhaps next week I'll show you alllllllllll of my embossing powders lol. Also still loving using the Distress Oxides on dark surfaces because water soluble pigments!

I've actually been really productive, but since none of the posts are for challenges, I am waiting for better light to photograph them. We have had heaps of rain and snow (thankfully not sticking well enough to be a problem).

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty sightings! And the 9th Anniversary is a mere 5 weeks away!!!

Good morning - those papers are lovely - enjoy working with them. I hardly ever do scrapbooking, but I think I am with you - couldn't do loads on a production line principle - that would defeat the object as far as I am concerned - but, there we go, each to their own. Enjoy Allllllll your embossing powders!
Take care. God bless.
