More fun projects!

I got the newest kit for Scrapaganza's in-store kit club (Scrappinista Scrapbook Club) and had a blast desigining with it! My Little Yellow Bicycle's Boardwalk line - full of sunshine, beachy water and wonderful texture!  And I really mean texture... the papers have a fun fabric-y feel to them. The die-cut borders are canvas, and all the embellishments have interesting dimension and texture.  Here are my projects:

I like working with themed papers, it allows me to dig into my stash of photos and get pictures scrapped!

Beach Babes?
I love this photo and I'm not ashamed to share it! Besides, this was 23 yrs ago. LOL

Photo Op
My mom lives in Florida while I live in Iowa, and neither of us can afford to visit each other often, so every photo of her and my son is a treasure to me.

Whenever I'm assigned to work with a kit, I set a personal goal to use up everything I can. I also like to make cards from the scraps but I'm also looking at ideas for gift-giving as well. A few months ago I was at Capadia's blog and discovered this post about making a folder for holding notecards made with a single sheet of cardstock. AWESOME! I love things like this and the folder comes out looking so professionally done. It's a keeper and several people on my gift list will be getting little folder boxes of cards this year!

Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are always appreciated and read! so if you have a question, feel free to ask. And please visit Capadia's blog to see that card folder, and all her other awesome work!
