The Great Outdoors

Hi all,

Here's a super simple kit I made up for a few people. I used some papers from my stash, and all the rest is cut on my cricut. I love that little camper, and the main title that came from Graphically Speaking cartridge. The camper came from Pop-Up Neighborhood cartridge!

Anyway, hoping to have pictures this summer for it, if I can't find pics in my stash. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Treasure Hunt

Greetings all!

Here's a page I did last year with some papers from my stash. I loved this paper, so cute! I think the company is Adorn It! I'd had it for years.  In addition to the papers I used chipboard letters and crochet flowers and buttons to embellish it.

Grandma always does an easter basket for the kid, and that time, she made a treasure map and clues for him to follow to find it. ;)

Here's a page I did with Kaiser papers from my stash. Very simple, very little embellishment. The title and balloons were cut with my cricut. The orange border cut with a border punch. String for the balloon strings.... never seem to be able to use up that string! The balloons all have their edges inked to make sure they stand out from each other. I also used pop dots of different thicknesses, and adhered some of the balloons flat to the layout... I think this gives it a more 3-D look.

Of course, this is pictures from my son's first movie at the theater. :)

Cricut Class

This is a page I made last June, but never got around to posting.  Used old Kaiser printed papers from my stash, as well as a bunch of flowers and bling for their centers, all from stash.  The die cut background and title letters are from my cricut, which is appropriate since, the photos are of the very first Cricut class I taught at the scrapbook store I used to work for. It was a big deal for me, and I had a FULL class. I got a lot of wonderful feedback from the customers too. I really enjoyed teaching those classes, so I definitely wanted to scrap the page to remind me of those days.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Big Deal


Old printed paper! Using my stash! lol
I used 3 different edge punches to punch my layered borders. All 3 had a similar design which makes the repeated punched pattern interesting. Everything else; alphas, rub-on, flower and bird button from Charlene's Button Box, are also from my old stash stuff. :)

The photo is from one of my first big crops, one held by the scrapbook store I later worked for. The theme was "I'm kind of a big deal". That store put on super awesome crops and I miss them! ah well. I least I could scrapbook it! lol

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year! and... Shine

Hello! it's been a while, eh? lol
So Happy New Year and all that. I realized I had a bunch.. a BUNCH of pages I had not posted here. So, here I am to catch up!

I know I've been using stash all year. I've tried to follow a personal rule of not buying any new scrapbook paper unless I'd used up at least 3 lines of printed papers first. I've been really good! So the paper used in this page is new to me, I'd bought it just a few weeks before making this page. But hey, I bought it, then I used it up!

This picture is from a homeschool activity day in which we made candles. I asked my son to let me take a picture of him and one of his candles, and he struck this pose! I messed with the filtering on the photo to get it to look a little more intense. I raided my stash for embellishments, and made the viewmaster disc on my cricut (a file I created on my gypsy) and threw together the page pretty quickly (for me, lol). The title is also cut from my cricut.

May your new year shine with all good things! :)
