Let me just say that I’ve never really felt this lost while I was trying to work in a very long time.  Saturday, we had our design team crop over at the store, and I thought, I’d make Christmas cards.  I brought all my Christmas stuff.  I made a great big mess.  I couldn’t make a card.  5 hours at the store, and I didn’t come out with one card.  Nothing.  I was so frustrated. So I came home, and I pulled out a photograph.  I remembered that I’d been wanting to try a technique that had lots of … [Read more...]

H2O Hazard

So, I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost a bit of my mojo lately.  Not sure if it’s the weather, if it’s the Olympics, or if I’ve really just lost my creative mojo.  So, I found some photos and I said, tonight I will scrapbook.  Yeah.  Right.  So, I looked in the new Creative Keepsakes, found a sketch and out popped this… Things I love about my husband.  He is brave enough to tell me that I’ve spelled my title wrong.  … [Read more...]

Early morning birthday card

Yesterday was Lucy’s birthday.  I thought I would make a card for her, and drop it off at the Island.  So, this morning I got all of my extras from my latest design team and made a card! I’m so happy with the results.  On the inside I used a Hero Art’s “happy birthday” stamp.  I hope it’s dry for tonight! I just have to say, I love, love, love Glossy Accents.  I put a thick coat all over that little sticker, popped it up on pop … [Read more...]

SI Make & Take July 20!

On July 20th, I’ll be doing a Make & Take at my favorite place to be, Scrapbook Island.  If you haven’t visited the Island, you really need to.  And what a better day to go than July 20th, where I will be teaching a Make & Take.  For $4, you get to learn a new technique, and then when you are finished, you get a $4 store credit!  It’s like a free project! So, I watch Scrap Time and last week, I think, Christine showed us a technique with black gesso and Dylusions Mists.  I said to … [Read more...]

SI Design Project for July

Ok, how lucky was I to have “Cake Walk” by October Afternoon!  What a great paper line.  So full of fun embellies and the washi tape is, well, AWESOME! So, lets start with a sneak peek!  I’m saw these little critters and I was absolutely in love.  So uber cute, I decided to focus my whole design around this sticker! Here is the whole LO: The left side: The right side: You know, I can tell you that sometimes I get these boxes and I get such a mind … [Read more...]

Club CK Love

You know, I’ve not been sharing my work much lately. I’m not quite sure why.  It’s not that I don’t like what I’m doing, I certainly do.  I think it’s just with all that is going on with home, and work that I just don’t get around to posting.  I need to stop that.  I think it might be hindering me from moving forward with a different path. So, last week I decided to post my LYB & Simple Scrapper design team entries to my Club Creating Keepsakes Gallery.  Wouldn’t you know it…  I was … [Read more...]

Trying out for Design Teams

So, I’ve decided to spread my wings, and try out for some design teams.  I have no idea if anything will come of it, or if my email will even get past their spam filters, but I’m giving it a try. If I’m lucky, I’ll know quickly.  The waiting really is the hardest part. For this LO, I used my favorite beach photos from this March. This is one of the best pictures I have of Sean and John…  Disneyland of course! I love all the pictures of Sean on this tire swing…  Back to … [Read more...]

Operation Write Home

My besties and I got together and had our own little over night crop…  Instead of doing layouts, I decided to make cards for Operation Write Home.  Scrapbook Island is going to act as a collection point, and I thought, I can make cards!  So here you go…  What I am sending to the troops! … [Read more...]


Here we are at day 21, and Lain gives us Hometown as our prompt.  So, we finally found the cord for the slide projector, and we started looking at slides.  No order to things…  Then we found one of my mom’s favorite house.  John said I should do that picture.  So, we tried to scan the slide and yeah well, that didn’t work. So, for your viewing pleasure.  Ponytail Mohawk Fun. … [Read more...]

LOAD 16 - 20

First off, I have been a sucky commenter on the boards.  I wish I knew why.  I love looking at what everyone is doing, but I can’t easily do it on my phone, so…  I’ve been remiss. I finally finished my design team project on Saturday morning.  Thank goodness.  When I turned it in, I was told that now that she knows I can do it, she is going to start giving me harder things to work on.  Hmm.  Well, at least LOAD will be over by the time that … [Read more...]
