Christmas Card Class

I have a lot to post to catch up with all the challenges. I will post the cards I designed for the Christmas card class at Scrap Paper Scizzors first. I love these cards, I think I like them more than last years I designed. I love the Santa card, I think I will make those to send to my family and friends. I can't decide which one is my favorite. I will be hopefully later this afternoon with more pictures of the challenges that I have finished. We changed our internet/phone provider and our internet was down for awhile.
Have a blessed afternoon :)

November Classes

Sorry, it's been awhile posting, we have been so busy. This layout is for Novembers Inspiration Class at Scrap Paper Scizzors. I love this layout.
This layout is for Novembers Vintage Baby. I couldn't get a good picture of this class. I think the glimmer mist on the layout was throwing off my camera. Believe me it is much prettier in person.
I was running behind and these are inspired from some layouts that I found on the internet.

Design Challenges

We have awesome sketches to work with this month at Frosted Designs I love these sketches.

Our challenge at Frosted Designs this week was to use Teal, Orange & Brown for our projects. The sketch and color combo was perfect for the pictures of my little shih tzu we just adopted. Come and play along with us in the challenge this week. My Toyota club challenge was to use fabric, so I attached the ribbon to meet that challenge. With all the challenges I am trying to combine them all :) I always miss the Amazing race with my Toyota group because with all the challenges it gives me time to scrap for myself, but now with Frosted Designs Challenges it is really getting me to scrap for myself and I love it.

Club Layouts

I love it when my Toyota Scrapbook Club does their Amazing Race Challenges. This is last weeks Challenge Layout: We were suppose to use a label on our layout. I used the label from my favorite coffee place. I still need to take a picture for it, I think I will take one of my children enjoying their smoothies from there, I have scrapped enough of myself for awhile.

This is my page for my this weeks challenge. We were suppose to use a piece of memorabilia, I found my son's birth announcement and wanted him to know he is our miracle. He is such a miracle baby, first for being born and then for God healing him from cancer. I am so thankful for my children.
I will put the September vintage class on here tomorrow I need to add a few things to it.

Scrapbook Club Layouts

We were to use part of a greeting card on a layout, the flowers and butterfly were from an old card my daughter had.
We had to scrapbook a picture of ourselves scrapbooking, and scrapbook diva somewhere on the layout. I didn't have any so I had hubby take one and then I took some pictures of my scraproom, my favorite place in the house.
Have a blessed evening!!!

Sunkissed Sweetie

This is the July Vintage Baby class and I love how these layouts turned out. I got to use one of my new Cricut cartridges: Lyrical Letters. (I really love this cartridge), the butterfly is from Sesame Street Friends. The flourishes and flowers are Kaisercraft. I spritzed it with Sandy Beach glimmer mist and it made it so pretty.

Monday, June 15, 2009

Pretty Princess...

I am late again finishing this months class, my friend Cindy would love this one. She loves pink and brown and I kept thinking about her while I was working with these papers. There is a blue version if you happen to have a handsome prince instead. I got to play with some of my new Cricut cartridges Jubilee and Lyrical Letters. I think Lyrical Letters may become one of my favorites, all the fonts are awesome, especially with the new update on the software where it lets you weld them together.
I finally have all of my sketches that I have found online in a binder organized by where I have found them, hopefully this will help inspire me to scrap, I just can't seem to get motivated lately.

Cleaning out Scrap Room

I have been cleaning out my scraproom and Ihave decided that I am going to part with most of my QK alphabets. I don't use them at all since I have bought my Cricut. I am also going to sell my QK Silhouette. It have hardly been used at all. I just like my Cricut, I know it's nice that you can cut out any font from your computer with it but I just haven't used it since the Cricut. I will list each item with the price and shipping will be determined if you see something that you want:
Quickutz Silhouette $150
(I gave over $300 for this when we bought it and unlike the Cricut software this lets you load on more than one computer)
Quickutz Complete Alphabets:
These are way below what I purchased them for but I just want to clean out my room and send them to a good home.
Deisel with Shadow- $125
Tangerine with Shadow-$125
Roxy with Shadow-$125
Emily- $75
Abigail Grand-$75
Journal Grand-$75
Maddie Anne- $75
I have several more that I am going to go through and probably post later.
I'm embarassed to say that most of these alphabets have never been used. My hubby spoils me rotten.
If you are local and want anything I can arrange to meet you. Also if you want to see anything I can email you a picture.

The Best Big Sister Layout

I scrapped all by myself Saturday evening, it took me awhile but I was able to complete this layout of my daughter. (I wish I had a scrappy buddy/friend to spend time with.) Most of the time she is a wonderful big sister and Caleb loves her so much. They have became so much closer since Caleb's been in remission. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful children.
This layout started as a scraplift from CK magazine. I had went to Michaels and found this paper pack and fell in love with the colors. I also picked up the matching flowers and chipboard shapes. The title Best Sister and the leaves are my favorite Cricut cartridge Storybook. The small butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. Hope you have a wonderful week!!!

Totally Adorable Vintage Baby Class

I really like these layouts for this months class. I love my Cricut software and I use it on every layout. It makes life so much easier when designing for a class, I made the background for the green polkadot paper with the software by welding everything together. I used several cartridges on these layouts:Plantin Schoolbook, Storybook (my favorite), Street sign, Sesame Street Font, Home Decor, and Wedding.
Welcome to all my followers, you guys are awesome. Hopefully when I get my new computer in a few days that I will be able to enjoy blog hopping and be able to follow everyone's blog. My computer is old and slow and it takes too long, we have DSL but it's like dial up waiting for pages to load.

This is a layout I made this past weekend when my friend Brandy came over and scrapped with me. I have been so busy with everything it was nice scrapping with friends and just relaxing.

Basic Grey Dark Chocolate Chipboard Album

I love how this album turned out. This will be the project of the month for February. These are just a few pictures of the album.

My Guys...

My friend Brandy came over this weekend to scrap with me. We didn't get a lot done but we had a lot of fun. This is a layout I did of my two very special guys. I still need to add some journaling. They were looking on the internet at old tractors when I snapped this picture of them. The words Daddy, Caleb and Buddies was made using a strip of Core Color paper run through a labelmaker and then sanded to bring out the inner color. We found the idea in my new PageMaps book, if you haven't bought it yet it is packed with all kinds of great ideas.
I will post some more projects later that I have been working on for Melissa.
Have a blessed evening!!!
