my works

here is a pic of all the LOs we did over Christmas. Pretty impressive I think for only getting to scrap a few hours at a time.

the rest are the last pages I did in 2009. They are not the best pictures...really need that perspective tool in Paintshop! But atleast they are posted and you can pretty much tell what they are. Now it is time to focus on 2010!!!! All paper is from either October Afternoon or Sassafrass Lass. The rub-ons are OA and stickers are Prima (I know weird that they are not flowers right?!)

Not a Total Slacker

Okay, so I don't get nearly as much scrapping done as the Jenne girls, but this will prove I'm not a total craft slacker. A friend asked me to make this for her to give to her sister for Christmas. It's been a while since I made one of these. I was pretty fun. I think this might be my favorite recipe box yet; I just love black and white color combinations.

pattern paper: unknown, tin: Provo Craft, foam stamps: Making Memories, flower: Petaloo, ink: CTMH, font: Susie's Hand downloaded from Internet

before 2009 ends

and it's been a good one. I am impressed with how many layouts we have posted this year but think we should set a goal for 2010. What do you say? Anyone up for a challenge? These ones I started earlier this week and wanted to get them done before the new year rang in! I really like how they turned out and both ideas were scraplifted from Two Peas . I actually really like their member gallery and have thought about putting my layouts on there too since you know I have so much free time and all!

and the rest! Whew its' done!

A few more

So here are SOME from last week. It sure takes awhile posting all these so I hope someone appreciates them! J/k Maegen and I went to town, but don't worry I still have plenty of pictures to scrap in January for our crop night!

Mostly stamped on this layout with some of Maegen's cool flowery stamps. I even colored in some of my stamps which Maegen gave me a hard time for!

My Mind's eye paper, Studio QK font, pink AC thickers, stamps and random embellishments

Chicago QK font, brown AC stickers, stars cut from My Minds Eye pp, other My Minds Eye pp

Old Scenic Route pp, AC pink thickers, cool stamps of Maegen's, ribbon and flowers

This week

So I am going to go backwards. These are the layouts I have worked on this week. I will then post my layouts from scrappin with Maegen last week. Don't ask why. I am now using Adobe Photoshop. I wouldn't call me an expert on it but maybe with time. Also, is there a tool for straightening like in Paintshop?

I just used bazzill on this layout. I cut the patterns out on my silhouette. I think it turned out 100% percent cute!

This is old school using Studio 8 that I found at the bottom of my stash. I also cut face and the cool do hickey ({ i forgot what this was called) with the silhouette. The other embellishments are stuff I had including a journaling card from my Mind's eye.

Days 10, 11, 12 and 13

Day 10: you saw the front of 10 in the last post. it is an acrylic scallop square. i journaled about my holiday decor right on the photo (use a marker for slick surfaces...sharpie PEN (not a sharpie) or the American Crafts Slick Writers work great too).
Day 11: This is actually the page for Day 22. I carefully peeled off the numbers and switched them. The blue paper just made more sense for today. I documented about how COLD it has been here lately. It has been serious heavy coat weather. And yes, it did snow one night. (I got the idea to print out the weather report from my BF Ali Edwards)

Day 12: Just a 4x6 pic with a white boarder. Then on the back I printed the journaling and 2 more pictures.

Day 13: simple, I just printed off a CD case from Itunes and cut it to fit the page. Then journaled around the edge. (yes, journal can be used as a verb too). There is nothing on the back.

Days 8 and 9

Day 8: simple, just one picture and journaling on the back.

day 9: sheet protector with pictures and journaling on the back.

oh look you get a sneak peek of day 10 since it is in the same picture as the back of day 9. lucky you.

December Daily

I wanted to do something different for Christmas this year. Instead of doing 100,000 Christmas Layouts I decided to go along with our friend Ali Edwards and make a December Daily Mini. I convinced my new friend Heather to do it with me. And here is the result so far. I really love it.
Most PP chipboard and stickers are Crate Paper. **Heather, click on the image to make it larger, then you can really see what I did!

(day 7 I wrote a letter to C and will put a pic of his Christmas outfit in the pocket he didn't go to church this week(slacker)so it will have to wait till next Sunday)

yesterday and today

NO. 95
PP Making Memories
Chipboard Stars from that sheet of chipboard you gave me from my B-day. I painted them orange. A little journaling spot from JillyBeanSoup (that company NEEDS a new name) The ticket was from a Green T kit. The other orange star (fast) is from Heidi Swapp. And that nice wide brown ribbon was the packaging of some towels I bought this summer.

NO. 94
PP: Pebbles Inc. Some QK Relax action. And Doodle Bug letters from a million years ago. Cut out my journaling spots from some Sassafrass Packaging. And the strips where from Sassarass too.

These are both from Sketch This! I love that blog because it always helps to jumpstart my they always take about 30 minutes to create! I was scrappn' this weekend instead of sewing the Tent for C. It is just so tedious to cut out! I hope there is a project elf coming to my house tonight!

LO for the Sun-DAY afternoon

Here is what I did. Thanks for the copy from this layout! Just used scraps pretty much. I found some chipboard mm flowers that I painted. It was fun.

I scrapped for me!

Well my kids anyways.. They both napped today and I felt good so that was good! I kinda went a little crazy on this page. I had been wanting to use a background template from the silhouette and so here it is. I think it's cute. I went crazy with paint and doodling and this was actually my own design. What do you think?

June 09

I am now scrappn' June 09. I haven't been this far behind in 5 years. Kind of worried about when the baby comes. How far behind will I be then?

(check out my little cheat? I didn't have two T's so I turned a F upside-down...hope it doesn't look too dumb, or obvious)

Another one!

Yeah! I did two today. That is a record I think for a Saturday and not being away from the kids really. Ok well this one, they were in bed for! Thanks for the lift! Once again, I just used scraps. I also cut the brackets on my silhouette.

I scrapped!

I mostly used scraps on both of these LO. Go me! I thought the journaling on this was clever and cute (and copied of course). I also bought these little pearls a few weeks ago by Prima and I LOVE them!

This one I did today while Maddie napped and Sammy watched BOLT. This was also an idea from CK which magazine I have fully been enjoying. It's actually the August one not October-sorry to disappoint. I did a lot of stamping and also used Scenic scraps. The fonts of QK Chicago and Katie lc. I think the pp matched the pics perfectly though!

i like white cardstock

I am kind of on a white cardstock kick. It probably won't last long. But I love not having to match background colors for my pattern papers.

this one i did last night. got the idea from Sept. CK. Used the same kit from the previous post.

This one I did today. I wish I didn't have so much to write kind of throws off the whole design. Oh well. Oh and totally ignore the weird colors...sometimes my camera does weird things with color.
