#1 - Tonight is scrapbooking at church! There are about 6-8 ladies that will be there! I'm so excited. I can't decide what I want to work on tonight...my own stuff or a scrapbook that I'm doing for someone else? Hmmm...I'm already packed for both so I might just bring both and work on what I feel inspired to do! I love options!
#2 - Tomorrow, Saturday, is my 12 hour scrapbooking event! I'm excited about this as well because I plan on getting a lot done! Of course, we always plan on getting a lot done and it doesn't happen but maybe it will this time! Who knows! I need to get some pictures together and order them so that I will have everything I need for tomorrow. I love Walgreen's photo processing! It's so quick for the last minute picture printer!
#3 - 2 Scrapbooking events this weekend means a lot of Sonic Diet Cherry Coke! Can't wait!!
#4 - Sam and I are going on a cruise at the end of May and this week we booked our excursions! I am so excited to go on this cruise! I can hardly wait...less than 60 days now!
#5 - Only 6 more hours of work this week...WOO HOO!
#6 - I have made a new deal with myself...I have to floss my teeth every night. If I don't floss, the next day I can not drink Diet Coke. Yesterday I realized that I forgot to floss on Wednesday night and I was so bummed (and tired)! So last night I was sure to floss!! Hopefully this will work for me to get in a better habit of taking care of my teeth! (Although I realize that a reward of Diet Coke probably isn't the best thing for my teeth...but I love it so much and it's a good incentive so far!)
#7 - I watched the movie August Rush this week. It was SO good! I can't wait to listen to the soundtrack. I highly recommend this one!
#8 - Who invented working on Fridays anyway?!
#9 - April 3rd is a special day in TVland! The Office will return. I am so excited! I have a calendar in my cube and March is Jim's month. Next month is Pam! Jim and Pam...aren't they just so cute together? My friend also got me a huge poster for my birthday of Dwight Schrute. It is hilarious....he's larger than life and watched me work!
#10 - My best friend's wedding is on May 24th! I'm so excited about all of the wedding festivities that are coming up! We have showers and bachelorette parties and rehearsals and shoes to buy and dresses to alter! I love weddings! YEAH!
I hope that you all are having an amazing Friday! Hope to stamp with you soon!
Jinny wanted a great way to tell both sets of parents about the baby they have been asking for! So look at this cute card that she sent out for Easter!
The tag says, "Hatching November 2008"! This card is so cute! How will I top this some day, I will have to ponder that one!
I can't wait for November 7th to see the new addition to your family!
This card was made by my Mom, Kathy. I think that she enbossed on vellum. Can you explain Mom? And I believe that this was a wedding card. Thanks.
You can make these bookmarks with Jumbo Paper Clips that you can buy at Walmart. I used the Tart and Tangy stamp set to make these. To attach to the paperclip you will just use a Pop up Glue Dot. Very easy and so CUTE!
The one on the left is made by my mom, Kathy. You can't quite see it in the picture but the base was textured cardstock. What a cute color combination and a great use of the scallop punch. The card on the right was made by my mother-in-law, Jean. I love the hearts inside of the squares...very cute! And she even added a cute square rhinestone brad.
When I received both of these in the mail, it just made me think about how far you both has come in the crafting world! I will have to pull out some of your old stuff later this week to share, so everyone knows what I mean!
Love you both and thank you for these cards!
I just wanted to say that I am so thankful to God for bringing Samuel Hunter into my life. I can't wait to spend many more years by his side!
This way...if you have something done, you can share it, whether it's that week's page in the catalog or not. This will also give us the chance to get farther back in the book! To enter, all you have to do is email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a short decription if you want to! Thanks.
The card to the left was made by Kathy. What a cute little birdie that you can find in the Spring Solitude Hostess set (Level 2).
This card was also made by Kathy. Same design as the one above but with a flower using a button as the center! Buttons are so cute!
This last card was also made by Kathy. It's a CASE from the card on page 35. I have to say that I do like this card better with flowers!
I made 8 of them last night and they are super cute! You will have to wait until tomorrow to see them though...so exciting!
We used Soft Sky, Groovy Guava and Wild Wasabi for this card. The middle of the flower that was stamped on Very Vanilla and cut out is a Jewel brad from the Pretties Kit. And of course we topped it all off with a little Groovy Guava Double-Stitched Ribbon.
The card does say, "Thanks", but the s is covered by the ribbon because it wouldn't lay correctly. Oh well!
A prize will go to the first person who can respond and correctly tell me how many butterflies are on the above card. (NOTE: They don't have to be whole ones!) You must comment on my blog to win!
Have a happy day!
When we drove through OK, we noticed that almost all of the trees had broken limbs. We later found out that there was a bad ice storm.
We arrived to the hotel and just had dinner in the hotel restaurant. They had really yummy bread! Then we went to get crafty in our hotel room! It was a fun night and there was a great radio station! If you are ever in Tulsa listen to Mix 96. It was a mix of current hits and songs from the 80's.
The below card is one of the make n takes that we got to make at convention. They talked about using your stamps as tools. We used the circle from the So Much stamp set as a paper piercing template. We stamped the image using White StazOn and then used the paper piercing tool to punch holes as you can see in my sample.
This card has a very fun fold to it. It's a 4x4 card made from a 12"x4" piece of paper. Below you will see the inside of the card. To create this fold you will have a 12"x4" piece of paper. Score at 4" and 8". You will then see three 4x4 inch squares. on the middle square you will score from the top left corner to the bottom right corner (diagonally).
Can you think of any other ways to use your stamp as tools? Let me know what you come up with!
Your next step will be to fold away from you on the diagonal line. Then you will fold the last 4x4 inch square up to create the back of the card. You will then have a pocket on the inside of the card! This pocket would be perfect for placing a gift card in!
On another note. Before I left for the trip I just happened to stub my pinkie toe and I thought I would share with you all what it looks like. It still hurts but from reading online, I don't think it's broken. We will just have to see how quickly it heals!
Hope you have a great day!
Both cards that were submitted this week are from page 35 in the catalog. Hope you can find the similarities.
Anyway...I ran across a blog that had these cupcakes as a post! Aren't they just adorable? It looks like she just used decorated toothpicks. What a great idea for all you ladies that have little kids! Wouldn't this be a fun project?!
