ADSR 5 Update

So ADSR 5 is in full swing. It feels so good to scrap again. I've got a folder of photos that really need scrapping and this has been great motivation! If I did things correctly, each LO should be linked for credits.

Challenge 1: Introduce your Partner (credits here)

Challenge 2: Recipe Challenge (credits here)
Challenge 3: Selective Coloring and Journaling emphasis (I really don't care of selective coloring very much...there are very few photos in the world that pull it off with the effect that it is supposed to create. Just my opinion...) (credits here)
Challenge 4: ATCs - this was by far the hardest challenge! We each had to create an ATC for a loved one and for our ADSR partner. I think it's hilarious that we both created a superhero one - she knows me well! (Sorry for the poor quality. Sometimes I hate blogger.) (credits here)Challenge 5: Another Recipe Challenge (credits here)

I get to take Challenge 6 off because only one of us has to post. Kathleen volunteered to do it this time around. I can't wait to see what she comes up with!

Yikes - I just realized we are already halfway through the race!!

Hybrid Marble Magnets

Hooray for crafting! ScrapMatters' hybrid bootcamp has been just the thing I've needed to get my motivation going. I've been wanting to make these little marble magnets for a while now. Today was the day. I think they are so cute, and they were so super easy to make - let me show you!

Marble Magnets


Print out of your images (mine are 15/16")
Mod Podge
Foam Brush
E-6000 or Silicone Sealer
Glass Beads (large)
Magnets (3/4")

1. Seal photos with Mod Podge. When I didn't seal with Mod Podge, the E-6000 smeared the ink, good thing I printed extras! I'm not sure about the Silicone Sealer...

2. Put a dollop of E-6000 on the photo. I used the toothpick to get the glue onto the photo.

3. Lower a glass marble onto the photo smooshing out the glue to all edges.

4. Allow to dry upside down.

5. Put another dollop of glue on the back of the photo and lower a magnet onto the dollop.

6. Allow to dry far away from each other...if they are too close, the magnets will pull each other together and not be in the center anymore. Trust me. I know.

7. Enjoy your finished product! Aren't they cute? Digital Supplies: Sweet Thing newsletter kit by Jeni Hopewell and Chelle's Creations available for free in the ScrapMatters newsletter.

I hope all the grandparents love these for Valentine's Day! I'd love to see if you make them too, or if you have any comments or suggestions on the tutorial, I'd love to hear them!

So Kathleen (kv2av) and I have signed up for Season 5 of ADSR. I've never done the race before, but I'm getting really excited about it. We were both "waffling" on the decision to join, so our team name is the Wafflers. I made our team blinkie using Chelle's Creations new-ish kit Sunny Side Up. It was perfect!
Here's our blinkie....

I'll be posting race LOs here too. I can't wait for the fun to begin - first challenge is on Sunday!
So...are you racing?
