Stocking Time

Here is my Lift of Jenn's "Wii Little Christmas" I tried to make it a little different since we did buy the exact same paper this year. Oh I was lazy today and didn't feel like coming up with a title, so I just used the Scenic sticker. I think it totally fits Michelle's expression.

1st Christmas

This LO had some experimentation. The Tree is supposed to be a 1 for 1st Christmas. It looked good in my head anyway. Then I tried a technique I read in CK for the buttons. It just ended up being a mess. But at least Carter is cute and he can never say I never try anything new.

The Offical Christmas Photograph

Don't you just LOVE this Scenic Paper? I love that all of my Christmas pages match this year. It is crazy to think how far you can stretch a few sheets of paper. There are a lot of pics on this page. I love seeing the many sides of Carter.
Paper: Scenic Route
Ribbon & Rick Rack: ?
Tree: Making Memories Chip board covered in Scenic Paper
Solid Cardstock: Bazzil
Stickers: Scenic Route
Brads: American Crafts
Present Brad: ? (Christine gave them to me a few years ago...finally using them up)
Staples: ?

The best part is that I designed this all on my own. I did get inspiration from a page in the CK gallery.

Truly Unique

I love my rubber stamps (Autumn Leaves). They just make the perfect title when I don't feel like thinking of one.

The first page is a lift from CK; the second page is my own design.

Patteren Paper: Scenic Route
Solid Cardstock: Bazzil
Ribbon: I dunno
Stickers: 7 Gypsies
Star Brads: Making Memories
Frog Punch: I dunno, but I use it on just about every Carter page

Hot Tip: I made a black box in Word and then made my letters white to match the stickers.


More Studio 8 paper because it is awesome (really it is...I needed more snow paper for a LO I am doing soon, and I went to 4 stores and I had the settle for papers that I am not in love with.)
Ribbon is from Michaels.
Snowflake brads: Making Memories
Brighton Sticker: Helmet Stickers from the gift shop
Chipboard Snowflakes: Making Memories painted blue and glittered
Title: Blossom (also painted and glittered)

You have to try adding glitter to your is so cute!

PS I designed this whole LO on my own...I even sketched it out first. Go ME!

Christmas Eve

Once again, I used the same paper. Are you sick of seeing it yet? I also used the nesting circles which I really seem to love using! I just can't get enough of them. I also used my mom's little Blossom font which is cute for the Christmas. This was another page map idea. I was kind of scared to cut my pictures in circles with the nesting dies but it really turned out cute I think. I even stamped a journaling square and wrote on my page-also kind of scary for me.

A Wii Little Christmas

Thanks for the title dude! This layout is done with scraps from my other christmas layouts-and don't you worry their is more to come. Just so you know one picture is missing from this page because it didn't get printed-its Christine opening their Wii and it will go on the bottom of the page. I got this layout from pagemaps and I love it. I used my nesting circles as well as Blossom (my new fav font) and Bright and Olivia. Wow I am really endorsing Quickutz here-mays well since I love their stuff and that's what my hubby does!

New Year's Day

This page was done with New Year's Day pictures. I used Scenic Route paper ( the 10 cents paper from my store) and looky looky at the font-do you notice what I got? My store got a fantastic deal on them and so I used my gift certificate and bought it! Yeah! I love it-now you don't have to share Maegen! I like all the stars I used. I also used my sew stamp and little metro font!

I've Been Busy

I've been a little scrapbook Tasmanian devil these days. Spending all of my free time scrappn' instead of watching TV. Today I got TWO LOs done!! That's gotta be some sort of record.

Christmas Pie. I learned that stamping on pictures is not always ideal, should have put my KI letters closer together. I used Scenic Route Paper and a scrap of that Reminiscence Paper (below). The brads were American Crafts. I kinda designed this one myself. I just lifted how the pictures and trees went on the first page from CK magazine.

Christmas Day. A scraplift of Jenn's LO. But I had to do my differently because I cut my pictures too small. Paper was Reminiscence. Stickers are Scenic Route.

This is my new favorite LO. And I designed it myself! Scenic Route paper scraps (yes Jenn, more amoeba paper) from Carter's "Hey Santa!" LO. Stickers are Scenic Route, star is Sizzix. I dunno where the button came from or the ribbon.

Really Silly

This is my copy of Jenn's Cousins. We worked on this together until the Babies woke up and the printer started acting up.
Supplies: Scenic Route paper and arrows. Ribbon from Jenn's store. Really silly is an Autumn Leaves stamp. Brads are Heidi Swapp and I cut the shapes from Sizzix and Quickutz.

Sn*w C*ld

Horray! Carter took a good nap this morning. Maybe his bad holiday habits are breaking.

This LO I did with Studio 8 Paper. The snowflakes are Making Memories chipboard that I painted green. The leather frame is also Making Memories. Oh and so are the rub-ons. The letters are Fruit Smoothie from Sizzix; minus the asterix which is Quickutz. Brads are American Crafts. Font is 2 peas weathervane. So there you have it, a lot of supplies.

P.S. I know these are the same pics that I scrapped yesterday, but today's LO is for the family scrapbook, yesterday's was for Carter's book. No wonder I feel so overwhelmed...I am doing too many books! Double everything seems to be wearing on me.

Christmas Morning at Home

I also used the same scenic paper and stickers here. Also you probably can't tell here but everything was corner rounded-man I love that thing! This was from christmas at our house early because we had to get Sammy in her balls of course!

Christmas Eve

So here is the Christmas Eve layout I did. I managed to get almost all my pictures on the page-awesome huh? I still can't believe it worked and it ended up being pretty cute for mostly a collage. I used Scenic paper and stickers as well as my new Bright font. I love it!


Here is the layout you requested. I also made the scallop edge along the bottom of the journaling only because I messed up and couldn't put it under the cousins (it was too glued down). I like this layout, kinda simple so more my style unlike those other crazy ones we were doing!

baby's first SN*W

This LO caused me a lot of strife. As soon as I sat down to work on it my dumb squeaky chair woke up Carter. So I stopped and we went to do some errands. Later he took a late nap so I could work on it. It was almost done, Carter woke up, but luckily Nate was here, I was doing the title and I stamped Baby's First upside down! Arg! Eventually I figured out how to fix it and now I think it is worthy of the Studio 8 Gallery. What do you think?

Scrappn' In Utah

I get so much inspiration when I scrap with my buddy Jenn. Here is what we accomplished. Maybe she will post her LO too.

I used Pebbles paper. I am not sure what the line is. I used my new BLOSSOM font from Quickutz (it is awesome!). I also used just about every flur Jenn and I had.

I think the paper is Reminisce. Not positive though. I used some ribbon and some scraps. The stitches are a Close to my Heart stamp. Tree is my new KI stamp set.

This is American Crafts paper and just about every star punch and die cut Jenn had. Goose Egg is Merry and Bright by quickutz.
