It's Been Awhile!

While there's always excuses, reasons, procrastination that come with not posting 
on here in a long time! 
I do have to say Life Happens! 

I have still been scrapbooking and making cards, just not have been good at taking the pictures and updating like I used to!

I have been attending two retreats a year, which is where most of my scrapbooking has been getting done.
I participate in the card swaps at the retreats also.

Just recently, joined back up with Close To My Heart!
That being said, I am hoping to get back into posting on my blog more often!

So, if your still following me thanks for sticking around!

Card Kit finally completed!

I can't remember when I got this card kit promo from Close To My Heart, but I finally pulled it out and finished all the 8 card designs provided.

I just did a search and found out it was September 2009 promo!!!!

I got into my scraproom and pulled this kit out and over the week got to finish all of them here and there!

The 1st day 
  • I went through the designs and cut all my papers so they were ready to go with each card design.
  • Inked up all the edges that I wanted to based on design and my flair choices, even did some card bases too!
Time to get the kids from the bus!

The 2nd day
  • I had some extra time today. So I got in the scraproom and stamped out all the images and sayings.
The next day (3rd day)
I missed out on the following day consecatively! So, the 3rd day in the scraproom! 
  • I started assembling my cards. Got two completely finished)
Kiddos off bus and off to scheduled lessons and practices!

Here are my cards:

Happy New Year!

Well it has been a long time since I have posted....

There has been a lot going on!

I have been scrapbooking and making cards still, just not as often as I would like!

I just came across a blog entry that made me think about my goals for the coming year as far as my crafting ventures go! Here is the link: what-are-your-2016-scrapbooking-goals  I like the goals she listed.

One of my basic and biggest problems is my space has been in transition for the past year. I have only been scrapbooking really at retreats and/or crops. Cards I can get to easier and quicker. So, my 1st goal this year is to get all my supplies organized into my scraproom. Since this is a big task in itself...I am going to start with this one goal and hopefully get to those goals listed in the post above either along the way or as soon as goal #1 is achieved!

So, do you have any goals you have set?
I am always surprised and excited to hear goals and achievements...It pushes me to step it up or get moving!

End of Summer Two-Pager!

Well, I haven't touched my scrapbooking since the last retreat I attended back in March!!

Teacher Gifts

The year of year gift I found on pinterest.....Here is what my kiddos gave their teacher's!

I found this cute gift idea for teacher's gift and it came with a tag you can download!

Here is the link to my pin.

Here is the original blog post: i-have-to-ad-mitt-youre-sweet-teacher 

For the kiddos swimming instructor I created this little postcard style/gift card holder.

Emma would play a game with the kids at the end of lessons. Asked them if the liked certain foods. Changing it up once in a while and letting them call out the food before they jumped in the pool. 

So, the kiddos like the idea of asking Emma "Do you like Tim's?"

Off the enjoy the summer!

Liftateers, Week #6 - Bell Island Hockey Tournament

This week we had a awesome layout to start from...

I loved how the title came out...
My son is Number 10 in the White jersey!

Using some extra arrows for journaling and adding in the different teams they played.

Here is a full shot of the 1st page.
That guy in the hoodie is my husband coaching my son on the bench and giving the goalie some tips. He played as a goalie back in his time on the ice.

I had more pictures to use so I made mine into a 2 page LO.

Here is some close up details of the 2 pages next to each other.

Page 2 full shot. I noticed my "a" slipped a bit. Need to add the two other teams they played.

2 pages together...the only one I cropped down also!

Here is the layout we were given to lift this week. Found On designed by NichyRae.

Card Lifters, Week #9 - Blessed

For this week's card I used some packaging I had from a box of chipboard Alphas. Cut out the words "Blessed" from a Cricut cartridge (I will have to update which one...Can't remember) I was thinking of using this card for a Baby's Birth, a Baptism or Holy Communion. Added some white fiber!

 Here is a little better shot with out the sun's glare!

 Th inside of the card. I cut out the word "blessed" before going to a crop. So, after making this card there...I would recommend doing a reverse cut of the words use use so you can place them on the back in the inside of the card for a cleaner finished look!

My patterned paper does go right to the edge of the corrugated but there is a lip/space you can see from the inside. I did edge distress ever edge of the patterned paper to help cover the lip/space that I can see! Just my little quirky crafting peeve that would bother me if this card were to fall into the hands of a fellow crafter!

Here is the original card we were given. Found at featured-designer-ardyth-percy-robb
