Yippee!! Let’s Celebrate!

It’s another snow day!   Hmm…. may not be cause for such celebration anymore. I am enjoying the time snowed in at home crafting though.  And, here are the results of today’s efforts:  a four layout Workshop using the Confetti papers – great for birthdays!

The cheerful and colorful papers seem to lend themselves more to girl birthdays than boy birthdays, but with some judicious selections of paper, these layouts are fairly appropriate for either boys or girls:

 

Awesome layout using the December Stamp of the Month, "Cutie Pie"as well as  some arrow washi tape

Happy Snowy New Year!

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution?  Everytime I make one, it falls by the wayside before Valetine’s Day…. So, this year I’m setting a fun one for myself: make more time for activities I enjoy…..  This includes spending time with my family, cooking and reading books….  and, oh yeah, scrapbooking 🙂   What could be better?

 

Most of the country has been hit by a wave of frigid snowy weather this first week of the new year. Puts me in the mind of hot cocoa and nordic sweaters….  perfect for the Snowhaven paperback:

Love the polka dots and the  flexible resin Snowhaven Assortment accessories!

Windy, Blustery Fall is here!

This past week Fall arrived!  We had our first really chilly, windy, rainy, blustery days.

“Boo!”

I love the playfulness of Halloween!

“Wanderful” summertime……

I had a “Wanderful” time on vacation last summer. My husband and I surprised my dad and joined him on a river cruise down the Danube at the last minute!  It was an amazing and wonderful trip: precious time with my dad, amazing sights along the Danube in Austria and a thoroughly relaxing break from hectic family and school life. I am so grateful we were able to make this trip work out.

I tried to capture the flavor of the international travel, the cities, the airplane flights, the river boats, the metros, the exploring and adventure in the many photographs that I took during the trip. Now I can’t wait to create album pages to remember it all. The new “Wanderful” paper is perfect for this sort of vacation!  I love the trendy colors used in these papers, as well as the fun embellishments that go with them:

 

Wanderful2

I’ve used an art booking overlay here that is perfect for the airplanes and arrows in this paper pack…

Wanderful4

Notice the banner on the right hand page, which is crystal blue card stock embossed with our new arrows embossing folder and sanded.

Wanderful3

Love the arrows washi tape here!

2014-10-15 16.14.14

The chevron border punch adds a bit of spunk to this page. Love the use of Base and Bling arrow charm on the bakers twine as well.

 

 

I’ve added 3 extra sheets of card stock plus a piece of patterned paper to make these four energetic layouts. Also included are  lots of coordinating embellishments:  Awesome stick ease complements, images from the Wanderful WOTG stamp set, a cricut overlay from the “Artbooking” cartridge, washi tape, the Wanderful assortment of metal shapes and trendy epoxy badge buttons.

Come join us on Friday evening, Oct 24rth or Sunday afternoon, Oct 26th to make these fabulous layouts.

Cost: $25

I’m loving the new papers in the Annual Inspirations book!  I’ve started with the Chalk It Up paper pack – perfect for those back to school layouts, as well as adaptable to any summer photos. I love the trendy colors used in these papers, as well as the fun embellishments that go with them:

Lollydoodling along….

Just in time for the arrival of the new Idea Book next month, I’ve finished layouts with the last paper pack in the Spring 2014 Idea Book: Lollydoodle. I originally thought these papers and patterns leant themselves to card making more than scrapbooking….. Then I fell in love with the layout on page 105 of the Idea Book, showcasing the “Windy Day” stamp set. I came up with a matching layout for the right hand page and here you have it:

 

Lollydoodle layout featuring the "Windy Day" stamp set

I went on to create four other Lollydoodle layouts. Each has it’s own color theme and feel. Matching the papers in the Lollydoodle pack together in the right way results in some very girly, flowery pages while other pages end up being more blue/green/gray:

I’ve added 9 extra sheets of card stock plus sparkle paper to make these five fun layouts. Also included are  lots of coordinating embellishments:  Awesome stamped images, flamingo dots, the Lollydoodle assortment of faceted adhesive buttons and embroidery threads. 

If you’d like to make these pages for yourself, let me know and I’ll prepare a kit for you. You can join us on June 22nd or complete them at home yourself. I will precut and stamp all papers for you.
