Scrappy Hands challenge 22

Last Wednesday night my family celebrated the beginning of the new Jewish year - 5775 if you have to know ;-) It is only appropriate that the current Scrappy Hands challenge is all about beginnings.

I chose to make a layout about my son's first day in Hebrew school. I kept a paper ribbon hew got from his teacher and used it on the layout. It says"First Grade" in Hebrew. I also added the word "Shalom" (Hello) that I cut with Silhouette.

I kept the layout simple with adding just few school themed embellishments and shiny stars.

Check what other DT members did this week and share your projects with us, You don't need to read Hebrew to participate :)

I hope we all will have a great year ahead of us!

Scrappy Hands - challenge 21

10 days till Rosh Hashanah. I checked. Yesterday Lila baked honey cakes and I pulled out my Rosh HaShanah stamps and made this stitched card for Scrappy Hands sewing challenge.

Supplies: stamps (The Rubber Cafe, Papertrey Ink), ink (Close To My Heart), lace (Love My Tapes), pens (Sakura)

I stamped the dove on white cardstock and stitched around the stamped image with gold embroidery floss. I used Love My Tapes lace tape to make a lacy border.

Scrap It Girl - September challenge

Hello, September! Tomorrow my kids will start the new school year - 1st, 8th and 11th grade. I am doing to take a deep breath and take it easy for the next few days. This summer was full of traveling and reuniting with family and friends. One of the best things that happened to me this summer was being able to meet with my college girlfriends. I love this instagram picture and I used it for Scrap It Girl September challenge. The challenge theme this month is stencils or masks. I used a piece of cardboard with holes as my stencil.

Supplies: cardstock (Recollection), patterned paper (Crate Paper), label stickers (Creative Imaginations), stickers (American Crafts), letter stickers (Pebbles, Bella BLVD), color shine (Heidi Swapp), cardboard, jewel

I sprayed the background cardstock with gold Color Shine several times, moving the stencil down the page. Thus the gold circles at the bottom of the page have more intense color that the one on the top.

I used the same piece of cardboard under the picture. I added torn strips of Crate Paper patterned paper and few stickers from my stash.
