The month of July at Rainbow Scrap Challenge, is Blue.

Here's my blue bin.

Here it is all dumped out.

I managed to make 4 blocks, before I had to pack it all back up again. I hope I can get it out again soon, but we'll see.

Piggy Bank Savings

I decided to join in with Val's Piggy Bank Savings.

Here's my piggy bank.

Not sure how much I'll actually save, since I seem to take the coins and use them to get prints at the library!

Quilted Hearts

Today is my 16th Anniversary, and my husband has to work!

So I spent the morning, before the kids all got up, sewing quilted hearts.

Now I have to take the kids around to hide these. I found a quilted heart.

Old jeans

With the kids out of school I have to steal little bits of time here and there to craft.

I have a whole bin of old jeans. I started cutting them up into circles using my ruler.

(my phone doesn't take good pictures!)

My plan is to make an I spy quilt for picnics and parades for next summer. I just need to get a bunch of different 5" novelty squares to make this. Any ideas on where to get a whole bunch? If someone would love to Swap, maybe we could set something up....

We have been really busy now that school is out. Visited a couple state parks. Brought the kids out to visit relatives, went to a zoo, driver's ed, doctor appointments... Lots going on.

I did manage to get my yellow scraps sorted out.

I didn't have very many pieces to make 6.5" blocks (6" finished). I only managed to get 5!

Here are my yellow scraps.

I don't have enough here for my 3 solstice 12" blocks. So I don't know what I'm going to do for those....

The month of May was dedicated to the color green over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Here's my Green basket.

Than I worked on some 12 1/2" Solstice blocks.

Than I made some 6 1/2" blocks (6" finished)

I than cut the rest of the scraps in this basket into usable sizes.

And here's my now organized green basket.

Now onto June's color, Yellow!

I found a quilted heart!

On one of the girl scout FB pages, somebody posted they found a quilted heart. They shared a link. I followed the link to I found a quilted heart. I thought it sounded like fun. I made a group of hearts, and my 12 year old made the little heart on the top right. Now all we have left to do is go hide them for others to find.

Project Life Inserts

I've been busy organizing my craft room. I had one of my stamps fall behind my desk. So I had to empty off my desk and the dresser that holds paper to move them. All I found behind was my stamp and one card I had made. (I thought there would be a bunch of stuff behind!)

Yesterday, as part of my organizing I decided to get memorabilia put into my albums. I took out my sewing machine, put a needle that I have put aside for paper, and altered some PL albums.

I did lots all for my 2015-2017 PL albums. So with this I have officially started my 2017 PL album. Just need to get pictures added!

National Scrapbook Day

On Saturday May 6th, it was National Scrapbook Day. On one of my FB groups they had games and challenges all day. They had lots of prizes donated from different companies and members of the group.

One of the challenges was blooming buds, heres a flower I made.

For the birthday challenge I made 2 cards.

For the PL challenge I completed Week 35 from 2015.

The last challenge I completed was to use your scraps from previous challenges. Since all I used were scraps for my other challenges I didn't have very many scraps to play with. So I made a couple of Thank you cards.

I played a few of the games too.

I won 4 prizes!! I can't wait for them to get here.
