Scrap Class

These are the projects we did at our last scrap class. I didn't do my projects during class so I brought them home and just finished them I changed a few small details but they are close. Lori does such a good job giving us fun things to work on!

Mema turned 82 years old!

This is my husbands mema who just celebrated her 82nd birthday. We had a big party for her and I manged to get some really good pictures of the whole family so I decided to work on an album for her. This is the 1st page of the book since it's her children. I hope to work on it more this weekend and have something else to post.

I love placing ribbon this way

I think it is so elegant!

I am using the Simply Scrappin Kit "ROSE COTTAGE" from stampin up! This is just a cardstock sticker and I used the white uniball pen to detail.

I have talented friends!

This is a look at all of the wonderful "Homemade" cards I recieved at my party! I do feel like this was my favorite part of the night, there is something about knowing that someone took the time to make an original card just for me. Thanks to everyone these wonderful creations will be cherished forever.
I must tell you who these came from...the top left (orange & Blue) is from Chrissy, Middle (bright pink) is from Lorena (she isn't even a scrapper, how sweet), top right (stripes) Is from Lori, bottom left (pink and green) is from Bekki, bottom middle (pink and white) is from Jamie (she just started in cards, she will be hooked soon) and bottom right (yellow) is from my wonderful hubby (with a little help from Lori, hehe)

My Amazing Friends!

I have the MOST AMAZING friends! My birthday is tomorrow the 22nd and they threw me a Suprise party last night, and Yes I was suprised. It was definitely one of my most favorite days. I felt so special and so loved. Thank you my dear friends Bekki (on the left) and Lori (in the middle). I adore you guys!!!!!

a little change

It's funny how it looks OK in person but when I saw the picture It looked like it was missing something. So, I added the scallop circle and also the pink background for the green. I think it looks a little more "Finished" Your thoughts???

Bella's Bloom

Just a quick little something to try out my new set "Bella's Bloom" I wish I had more time but this is all I could get done. It's a cute set, I think I will use it alot!

Bekki, Lori, and I went shopping yesterday and I bought my first set of clear stamps at Michaels. Here is a card I made with one of them and it is heat embossed with a glittery powder, I can get the more technical name if anyone cares. This is ribbon I bought from Big Lots for $1 for 15 YARDS! What a bargain!!!!

My Girls!!!!

Emma - 13 Years Old
Rachel - 5 Years Old

Kate - 3 Years Old
Here are some updated pictures of my 3 girls! I took these a couple of weeks ago at a family members home and I thought they turned out beautiful! (I'm Biased)

Another One

This card is the direct result of 2 or 3 mess ups and I just put them all together and came up with this. Everything on this card is Heat Embossed so it looks better in person!

Well, I got the "Snow Swirled" Stamp Set yesterday and it is Beautiful! Here is my first attempt at using this set and I can't wait to make more! I was looking on SCS and those ladies have made this stamp look really good, I'm casing a couple of those and just need some time.

Color Throwdown Challenge 13

The Challenge asked for "So Saffron" "More Mustard" and "Baja Blue"

Sadly I don't have Baja Blue so I used Soft Sky instead.

My 1st B-Day Card

Sadly, this is my 1st attempt at a Birthday Card. This is also my first time to paper piece! Look at me, branching out, who knows what I will dare to try next? HAHA

Small Changes

I fixed it! I didn't like the ribbon before because it looked like a cross so I changed it up a bit. Tell me what you think!

Friday, October 3, 2008


I saw this in the galley at SCS and loved it... This was the first time I used Ink AND Versamark together. I heat embossed with Irridescent Ice after stamping Versamark THEN Chocolate Chip. I love the result and will be trying this more often.

Now that I see these on the screen , i"m not sure I even like them. The bow looks a little like a cross, I might have to play with these a bit!

I scrap Too!

Here is a layout I did a while back of my sweet Rachel. I love black and white with a splash of color. Purple was chosen because it's her favorite color!

Here is my scrap space, where's yours...

Here is a look at my scrap space. I know it's cramped and crowded but it works for me. My dream would be to have a space the size of a master bedroom full of shelves and artwork to inspire me, but for now this will have to work.
I would love to see your scrapping place!

I was on a roll!

After making the other 2 last night I still had some time to kill and I was on a roll. So, here is what you get in 10 minutes. Not my favorite but not too bad.

Happy Birthday Mema!

Here is a card I made for my husbands mema. She is turning 83 this weekend and she is so precious to my family. I hope she likes it! Another design I saw on Split Coast Stamper Gallery. Of course I changed it up a bit to make it my own but I loved the idea.

Color Challenge

Here is my version of Lori's Color Challenge! I used Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Chocolate Chip but it's as close as I could get to her challenge. I heat embossed the White to make it stand out from the "Taken With Teal" ink. It's simple but I like it. I saw something similar on A gallery in Split Coast Stampers.

Happy Birthday Perri!

This is a birthday card I made for my Firend Perri. I love the colors together and I love her!

By the way, does this count towards Lori's color challenge? I think it's close enough!

Just add Recipe

How cute is this little cowboy? Now I just need a good
Recipe to add to make this perfect! Any Suggestions?

You Float My Boat!

Another project we did for our Stampin Club! I love how the
Cuttle Bug looks like waves in the water.

Stampin Club!

I just think these are so cute! These were projects from the stamp club I'm in and they are out of my element but too cute!

Just a couple of my favorites

This was my first time to use glitter and I think it make such a huge difference

This stamp set is one of my favorites! I really love the simplicity.

Fairy Nice

I was so excited to get this Stampin' Up Set "Fairy Nce"! I think it is such a cute little set and I am sure to use it a bunch with 3 girls! This is the first time using the set.

7th Anniversary!

Today is My 7th Annivaersary to my Husband Russ! We agreed to not buy a gift for one another and spend some quality time together instead. We also agreed to write a meaningful letter to each other. Here is my letter to Russ and of course I had to make a "List" of some of the things I Love about him.
