Scrappy Saturday

I love that even when life gets way too busy to papercraft, I can still whip up a digi scrapbook page while laying in bed watching cartoons with the kids : )

Late weekend we took the kids on their first camping trip. It was lots of fun and the kids keep asking when we can go again.

Here are a couple quick and fun layouts that I made to document the trip....

Have a GREAT weekend!!!! We are busy as usual!!! And then on Monday.....I start school!!!!

Your Special Day

My husband celebrated his 28th birthday last week. He had school all day, but I still wanted to make his day special. So the girls and I filled his car with balloons. And then he came home to a brand new grill. You really would have gotten a  laugh out of seeing me buy, load, and unload this grill with 3 little ones at my feet. Fun times!!! Well you can't have a grill and not have a BBQ. So I secretly invited some of Scott's friends and family over for a surprise birthday BBQ. So his whole day was full of surprises! And it will be hard to top next year!!!! But I will worry about that in another 11 months or so!

So here is the first scrapbook page I made of his birthday....


Everything comes from a kit called Little Mr. Big Man and I got it from the Sweet Shoppe.

Soaring by to say hi!!!

A new project- two days in a row- are you proud of me?! I sometimes miss the days when I blogged a new project every single day. I had so much more time to stamp. But most of the time, I am 100% happy with my decision to focus more on the kids and quit my business. These kids will only be this little once!

Enough of me being sappy! Here is ANOTHER card I made using the Papertrey stamp set Everyday Button Bits......

I swear I will be showing you some projects using a couple new stamp sets I got from SU!!! Next week!!! But when I got this set- I was so inspired that I whipped up like 5 cards in just a couple hours.

For this one I sponged some clouds with Bashful Blue ink. I also used that fancy Eyelet border punch from SU. The rest is from Papertrey Ink. Can you tell that I am starting to get a bit addicted to this cute little stamp company?!!!

Have a fantastic weekend! I will be back tomorrow with a fun digi scrapbook page!

All things grow with love.....and buttons!

Ok it took much longer than I thought it would to get my desktop up and running! But the good news is that everything is set up now and I have some things to show you the next few days!

First, I have another card using the Papertrey Ink stamp set called Everyday Button Bits. Have I mentioned that I LOVE this set?!!! If you don't have it- you NEED it!!! And you may as well get some of those cute Papertrey buttons while you at it!

All of the cardstock, ribbon, buttons, and stamps are from Papertrey Ink. I didn't have the green ink to match so I used Wild Wasabi and it matched perfectly!

Have a great night!!!

Scrappy Saturday

Our home renovation project is complete! I have a new crafting space with a brand new desk set. All my craft supplies are not in their new home yet. It is going to take me a while to figure out how to reorganize the supplies!! And I promise I will post pics as soon as we put some pictures on the wall and little stuff like that!!!

So I have several cards that I have been dying to show you, but the pics are on my desktop. And my hubby hasn't set that back up yet. It is burried in the front closet with my craft supplies. I think I will have him get that set up tomorrow so I can be up and running next week. AGAIN, thanks for the patience!

In the meantime, I have a fun and simple scrapbook layout for ya....

All the elements on this page were made with a cute kit called Weatherman. It has all kinds of fun elements for any time of the year!!!

I hope to be back on Monday with some fun cards!!!

I Chair-Ish Your Friendship!!!

I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for. You know- the kind that always make you laugh, are there for all the hard times, and totally get who I am!!! I made this sweet friendship card and now I can't decide which friend to send it to!!! I think I am going to have to make a bunch more!!!

This stamp comes from another Papertrey set that I recently ordered. I think (but I am not certain) it is called On the Couch. It's very cute and I especially like all the sentiments. And I am patting myself on the back for making so many cards recently without patterned paper!!! That is unheard of for me!!!!

I have several cards ready to show you. Which is a good thing, because I packed up all my stamping supplies!!!! We are emptying out my craft room and giving it a new paint job (no more pink with green polka dots!). Then it is going to be the new toy room for the kids!!! Right now the toy room is my front room. It is decorated like a little pre school. But it drives me nuts!!! Anytime someone comes over to the house, I have to make the kids clean up all the toys. It's such a pain. So now they will have a separate room for toys that has a door!!!! And I am going to be desk shopping and re-painting the front room- so I can craft there. I figure that I am better at cleaning up after myself than the kids are! Wish us luck with this big project!!! It will be interesting to see how we manage to do it with 4 kids under foot!
