Latest Scrappings

I completed my homemade Christmas cards this week. And instead of cleaning the desk I just kept right on scrapping. Well, card making really. I attended my bimonthly craft night last night.  I happened to have made two cards while I was there because I was too busy talking and joining others conversations. Mostly it was me talking too much though. When I got home, I decided to finish up the card kit that I had started.

I got this kit from in 2014. I have been hoarding it ever since. They named the kit Front Porch Cards and it featured a 6' X 6" pad and and embellishments from Pebbles entitled "Front Porch".

When I was finished with the kit, I decided to throw together a mini with the left over papers and embellishments. I have been keeping myself on track now for a good 8 - 10 months and have not purchased anything new as my stash has grown so large, I can't even remember what I own at this point.

I started off with two 12" x 12" cream colored sheets of card stock. I cut them to 6"x 12", folded them in half and bound the pages together. This gave me a nice sized 14 paged album. I inked the edges in a Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink pad, covered the pages and added the embellishments.

I added some beads to the binding strings and Wallah! Even though i am pretty sink  of pink projects I really like the papers in this kit. I may just keep this one for myself.

Until next time...

1 Weekend - 22 Pictures - 10 Layouts

I actually have three photos left to scrap, but the weekend is over and 22 was my goal. Here are the 10 layouts that are completed. All of these events happened in May 2015. No commentary on this posting, just photos. Enjoy!!


One of the 22 was a duplicate photo that I decided not to use.
So I decided to use this photo of one of my beautiful nieces.

Until next time...

Baby Girl Book

Every time someone I know is having a baby, it seems like they are having a boy. Now there is nothing wrong with boy babies. I love them just the same as all those girl babies out there. BUT the girl baby scrapbook papers are SO CUTE!!! Finally, my DD knows someone who is ready to pop any day now with  her new born girl. I threw this one together this week. Yay for the girls!!! Welcome to the world Harper!!!

Yep! I made the carriage.
I LOVE that monkey paper.
I textured the photo mats so they did not look
so plain until Mom can add some photos.


I love the poof too!

Until next time...

I tried not to purchase much new scrapbooking stuff last year. I wanted to use up some of the vast array of supplies I currently own in my studio. One of the paper packs I purchased a couple of years ago was by Recollections called Steampunk Botanica. I was feeling like making a new mini album, so I broke this one out.

I am using up the scraps on various projects.

I made some ATC's.

And I covered the two journals I am currently using.

I also decorated some pages in the journal with the hot air balloon, but this entry is getting a bit long.

And on a totally different subject, I made some ladybug cards for a new group I am swapping with. 
Fun! Fun! Fun!

Until next time...
