Altered Rolodex Cards ~ SO FUN!!

So I participate in a monthly Altered Rolodex Card Swap over at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking and am REALLY enjoying these little cards!!

Such fun, quick little projects. And my FAVE part... is getting the other participants cards and seeing their work in person. Such inspiration these little cards are...

Here are my April cards, the theme was "Girlie"... I personalized each one with the first initial of the participants.

... and here are my March cards, the theme was "Love"...

Here are a few other Rolodex Cards I've altered recently...

Fun & Easy Home Decor from Scraps

I made some curtains for my entryway windows last week and had scraps of the fabric left over. I decided to use the scraps and make a fun heart wall hanging to match for the living room.

I cut 4 individual hearts out, 2 for each heart. Hand sewed the edges, inserted stuffing, sewed on some jute ribbon for the hangers, added a couple scrap flowers, ribbon bows and a couple of buttons from my scrap stash... instant wall decor!!!

Just wanted to share... thanks for looking!!
