Gratitude Journals

I am such a bad blogger!!!!! So sorry!!!!! I won't bore you with excuses!!!

Do you remember this fun little jornal that I designed to be a make-and-take for my MOPS group? Last Friday, they all got to make them! It was so fun to watch all these women get creative and crafty!!! And the final products were VERY cute! I had my camera with me- but didnt have a chance to take any pictures until almost everyone was gone : (   But I did get pics of two journals that my dear friend, Vicki, made. Great job, Vicki!!!!

This one was made with some very old Stampin' Up paper. I think it was called Sarah. The flower is by Making Memories.

This one is made with some Marcella K paper and the flower is from the Stampin' Up! Pretties kit.

The Amazing Grace sentiment is from a stamp set by Papertrey called Women of Life.


I am going to schedule a post for tomorrow right now!!!!! So be sure to come back!!!!

Licking the Spoon

Sorry- but this week has been CRAZY!!!! I am doing a make-and-take with 50 women tomorrow morning and I spent most of my week cutting paper! My arm is actually sore from cutting!!!!! Crazy!!!!

I really needed a 30 minute break from that project I decided to make a digi page with pics that I took yesterday when baking with my girls!

Isn't that fun!!!! Everything but the Brown Background paper came from a kit called Baking Memories by Melissa Bennett. I got it at the Sweet Shoppe. I have lots of baking you will be seeing more of this one!!!

I am hoping to get caught up this weekend and schedule posts for next week......just in case life happens.....AGAIN!!!!

Have a fabulous weekend and make some scrapable memories!!!!

Pretty Sophia

I really mean to post this yesterday!!!! I had such good intentions. And then I forgot!!!! My brain is just getting a little slower every day!!! Anyway....I made this little easter basket tag for a friend's daughter. It took me forever to do the paper piecing! But I think it was worth it!!!!

The stamp is from Paper Pretties and it is called Hipity Hop Sophia. I colored her with my Copics.....but I need so much more practice with that!

Hope you had a great Easter weekend!!!!

Making Projects

Last night I really felt like digi scrapping!!! And I am happy with the result....

Every time I post a layout, I get several questions about digi scrapping. So I posted a list of the most asked questions and answers. You will see it right under my blog banner. I hope this helps!!!

Another Pretty Notecard!

Have I mentioned that I LOVE LOVE the pretties kit from Stampin' Up? My favorite part of the kit is the big flowers!!! A couple of days ago I had a post where I colored it with markers and for today's post- I stamped on the flower!

I used the Sweet Slumber Specialty Paper. It is thick patterned paper so you can use it for the base of a card. This card is 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide. But I cut 1/2 an inch off the front so that you could se a little of the backside peeking through.


Stamps: Polka Dor Background

Paper: Sweet Slumber Specialty Paper

Ink: Baja Breeze

Other: Pretties kit, buttons, So Saffron ribbon, circle punch

Taking a break from Facebook to post a card!

Can you believe that I made it back 2 days in a row?!!! Pretty soon though I need to stamp or I am going to run out of goodies to show you.

Today I have a fun spring card. Can you believe that it is 92 degrees here today!!!! The kids have been swimming in the backyard. I think Spring may have skipped us!

This card took me a little while because I stamped the tree branch in Close to cocoa and cut it out with an Oval Nestie. Then I stamped the tree again in Kiwi Kiss and cut out the leaves and put them on my tree with demensionals. The flowers were punched out with the Three for You Punch and then I added the white center with my White Gel Pen.

Here is a closer look...


Stamps: Cheep Talk

Paper: Rasberry Tart, Whisper White, Rose Red

Ink: Close to Cocoa, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss

Other: Big Shot, Oval and scallop oval nesties, white gel pen, Pretty in Pink Tafetta Ribbon, Jumbo Eyelets, Rhinestone Brads, Three for You Punch
