Yellow, Yellow, Kiss a Fellow

March was “Use Up Your Yellow Scraps” month chez van Schurman, and as I promised, here are the snapshots.

We have the quilt series (minus two that I have already used). I've deliberately left these blank because I can use them for thank you notes, birthday cards, or get well wishes.

The flower series. I still have more flowers, but I put them into a little container. I saw this in this month's Creative Keepsakes. (I'm so bummed that Simple Scrapbooks is no more.) Anyway, rather than storing small scraps, you punch them and store small punches for when you need them in your scrap book. That piece with the birthday paper on it is actually an 8x8 scrapbook page. Someday I'll need it.

The polka dot series. The plan was for more of these, but they're kinda boring to make.

And the rest:

You may remember that there were a number of half-finished cards from pink month. Well they were in my way, so I took care of (some of) them. I love this one.

You can see it half-finished here in the upper right hand corner. How will I ever send it to someone?

Coming soon: Purple

Lovely cards - your colour combinations are beautiful!

Beautiful work!

Look at all those cards! Which is probably why more people scrapbook and papercraft rather than stitch. You can feel so accomplished so quickly. I am stitching the blanket. Seven more lumpy circles satin stitched. Only eleven more to go.

Beautiful cards, as always!

Lovely cards, like the little patchwork ones especially :)

I don't know how you get done all you do! Great cards and there's nothing better than having a card on hand when you need one!
