Let's try a color challenge this week! Make a card or scrapbook page by Friday using the following colors and send me a picture. I will then upload all of the samples to a blog post on Friday!

If you don't have PP you can use Ruby Red.

Please email your samples to demokimsu@yahoo.com.

Happy Stamping!

Friday Fun!

It's Friday! Yeah! I haven't seen any comments this whole week! Ugh!

I hope that you all have a relaxing weekend and that you can find a little time to stamp! I will be scrapbooking tonight with my church group and then on Sunday we are having a 10/$10 at my mom's house! YEAH!

I just thought for Friday I would let you see a picture of my husband at the Omaha Zoo. What a silly guy!


Sorry it's been so long guys! I have been so busy at work and when I get home it's all about relaxing! But I want to show you a little of what I made at the last CROP.

This 12x12 white clipboard hangs in my cubicle and will show case scrapbook pages! This one is of me and my freind Colette at Stampin Up's Convention! I will change out the page every once in a while! How cute is that?!

This 9x9 chipboard clipboard is also hanging in my cubicle and is used as my calendar! I made a 7x7 page using the Calendar background stamp! How cute! I will make a new page for every month! Very cute!
If you were at my Technique Club last night, I want to say thanks for coming and hope you enjoyed your projects!
Have a great week and I hope to stamp with you soon!
Kim :)


6x6 Scrapbook Idea

Look at this cute album that I got on Ebay! I know it's not Stampin Up but I have to admit that I'm getting a little tired of just having 4 colors of albums to choose from with SU! I wanted something fun and in a great color and look at this cute album that I found. "What are you going to use it for?" you ask. Keep reading!

Since I don't have children (only 2 dogs that are standing in for kids for now) I have a lot of time to get crafty and think of new ideas for scrapbooks that I might not get to do in the future. I'm hoping this album idea will continue one throughout the years, even when I do have kids to take up my scrapbooking time!
The purpose for this album is to be a journal. There are so many things that I don't have pictures of that I really want to remember. Things like a feeling that I have when I'm with a certain someone, something that God has blessed me with, a good recipe, a quote that someone says, the joy I feel on a certain day....and the list goes on!
This book will be complied mostly of pages that don't include pictures. I can't wait to see how it goes! I have a few rules for my pages though. If I have the urge to complete a page about a certain topic, I have to do it that day or the next. I can't make a list of things that I want to scrapbook...then it won't be filled with the true emotion of the moment.
So what do you think? Want to start a scrapbook journal of your own?


New Things!

I got a few new things this week. Check them out below...
This is side #1 of the Creepy Crawly double-sided Designer Series Paper. So cute!

Side #2! Still cute! Good thing you get 2 sheets of each of the papers!

This is my favorite sheet in the whole paper pack! You can use this paper too when you come to my Halloween class on Oct 18th!

I haven't had new ribbon in SO long! I was so excited when I got these! Purely Pomegranate Doubel Stitched, Wild Wasabi Double Stitched, Old Olive Wide Organdy, and Grey Tafeta! I can't wait to use these new ribbons! And you can use them too at my next 10/$10...Oct 13th from noon to midnight!


I am giving someone a craft tote tomorrow. Her mom already has one exactly like it so I decided to label hers with some cute chipboard that was inked with craft ink and embossed in clear over top. I stamped the K in Stazon ink and used some cute ribbon to finish it off.

This is a cute charm that I made for some snips that go along with the bag above! I just tied the chipboard circle on with some ribbon and look how cute it is! I think I will have to make some for myself! What do you think?


Yeah for Comments!

Thank you Jean Ryden for my first comment! I can't wait to hear from all of you! Come back later this weekend to see a few of the current scrapbook pages that I've made! Happy Friday!


Halloween Class

I am so excited about my Halloween Class on October 18th (7-8:30pm)!

Look at this cute card that we will be making! I love the detail of the black embossing using the Spooky Skyline Jumbo Wheel on the black paper. I also love the cute little spider from the stamp set Booglie Eyes.

The cute box to the right is the perfect size to hold a yummy treat.
This little mummy comes from the Booglie Eyes stamp set as well. Also note the way that the Weathered background stamp was used! What a great idea!
I hope to see you all at my class on the 18th! Let me know if you have any questions!
More tomorrow!
Kim :)
