The Mighty Oak

Several months ago I fell head over heals in love with a new Papertrey Ink die set.  I ordered it as soon as it was released and then proceeded to not use it until a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately I've got quite a few of them like that.  I added some patterned paper from Authentique, and did a little embossing with a stampin' up cursive background stamp as well.  I really love how that one turned out.

Welcome EvaReese!

Been in the scrapbooking mood again.  A good friend of mine came over recently and we worked on this page together.  She's a sweet little girl isn't she?  This page is for a friend of a friend.  I used a combination of Teresa Collins and Studio Calico papers.   It's girly, but not so overtly pink, my favorite.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Holiday Gifts - Heat Transfer Vinyl to the Rescue

It's time for some vinyl!  It's been a while and in an attempt to switch gears and do something new. I pulled out some felt bags that I received as a gift from a good crafty friend of mine a while back and then Brandy came over.  The holidays are upon us and she has office gifts to give out.  So, we decided to personalize these bags for some of her employees.  I have had this heat transfer sitting around for ages.  And I used it!  

I love projects that use my supplies and nothing else!  I had to take a few minutes to watch a video because it really has been that long since I've worked with heat transfer.  And it was a little rough going there for a few moments, I won't lie.  But overall I really like the results.

And there was one over the shoulder bag.  Hard to photograph, but here's my best effort.

Field Day

This is my second attempt at scrapping these photos.  The first time was about five months ago and I just wasn't feeling it so I put the unfinished layout in my "to work on at some unknown point in the future which probably means never pile".  I'm glad I didn't go back to the old one.  I just started over.  As I mentioned in my previous post, I am really enjoying using these photo templates, or collages on my traditional pages.  They have made Project Life so much more interesting for me this year and last week I decided to snoop around the net for some new templates for PL and came across Kerri Bradford's site.  I ended up getting a few for PL, but many more for just general scrapbooking.  She has some great configurations on her site.  This particular collage comes from the Storyboard #8 set.  Kerri's been making these for a long time but for some reason I am just late to the party.  Oh well, I still like them!   


If you haven't worked with photo templates before, they are super duper easy to use.  I use mine in conjunction with Photoshop Elements, and it literally took me less than 10 minutes to drop these photos into the template and print the collage. 

Again, sorry about the photos.  I shot these at the same time I took the ones for the last page.  Wasn't gonna redo them!  So look for a much better photo experience next time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic week!

This Is Ten

I am the mother of a ten year old.  It's surreal just typing that. Where has the time gone?  My baby, or not so much a baby anymore, turned ten not long ago and I made this page to commemorate the occasion.  His grin can't get any bigger can it?

I have been drawn to photo collages more and more with my scrapbook pages.  I love the ability of having a multi-photo page without having to work around separate photos.  I've been using them in Project Life all throughout this year but the light bulb just went off for using them on my traditional pages.  Weird huh?

I have to apologize about the pictures.  I tried a new setup with less than optimal results.  I've been trying to do anything other than pull out that photo tent and set up the lamps because it's is such a pain.  But really, they look the best so I'll have to do that next time despite my trepidation.

I hope you like the page and thanks so much for stopping by!

A Bevy of Thank You Cards

I found myself in a Thank You Card drought a few weeks ago.  Normally Brandy raids my card drawer but leaves me at least one Thank You card.  Not this time.  So in an effort to anticipate her future greediness claim and still leave myself with a few I made a bunch of them.  Ten to be exact.  And I played with sequins which was fun.  Painstakingly slow, but still fun.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Halloween Goodness Post Halloween

I meant to get these posted on the big day.  And then I forgot my memory card so I couldn't download the pictures.  Such is life.  So here they are today.  Post Halloween, looking no less cute if I may say so myself.  These are treat bags my girlfriend Brandy and I made for her kids Halloween party.  My kids are getting a little older and don't really appreciate this stuff anymore so it's nice to have little ones to who still like to see the pretty stuff!


As I did with my last Halloween project I went digging in my big Halloween supply bucket.  Everything you see here is from my stash! Including the bags.  I love it when that happens . . .

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
