More Layouts

Ok I've found some more time to get on the computer.

As you can see in this picture that my new software and I have not yet come to an agreement on it working well for me LOL. I could never be digital scrapper just because I don't work well with software. Ok anyway on to these layouts

This layout in again on two of Hambly's overlays. The bottom overlay is Grandma's Wallpaper in antique white. Over that is the swirly one that for the moment it's name escapes me. I thought is just have a classic look. It actually happened on accident when I was pulling product for this page. I laid these overlays on top of each other as I was searching for the brick and the circles and I looked down and new I had a page! The pictures are printed in both black and white and in altered color. The three photo's on the left were printed with the white border the one to the right I had to add it with white paper because Wal-mart had an issue.

Sorry this one is blurry. I love this paper. I was excited that I was able to pull some of my old paper and make use of it. The accents are from the store. I used Heidi Swapp's Bling Variety frames clear in the top right corner and I used prima swirl jewels in the left corner. I also used the cricut expressions for the shapes and frames of pink paper.

This is the first of this above two page layout. I used the girl figure for my journaling. She looked a little blah by herself. Again the cricut expressions was used for the frames. I personally love not accurately lining up the pictures and the frames. Also petaloo flower with a Heidi Swapp puff center.


I'm back to show my work!

Wow what a busy two weeks I've had. I send my husband and kids to visit family and scrapped. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked but I'll take it. I was unable to post what I did once I got to South Carolina due to lack of internet access. Those crazy people wanted $11 a day for internet access (as if). So it will probably be several post since I haven't framed them up and edited all of them yet.

Here is the first on.

This is my end of the month summary page or at least it was until I found more pictures for March. It's not my favorite but it will do.

This one turned out really cool. The silver look under everything takes away (it's my laptop). I think I need to try to take another pic. But anyway I layered Hambly overlays. It looked so awesome I did it on another page to. This one is the brick wall uncut and then I cut to of the circle overlays. The lime and the pink. I made sure the small circles made almost a flower shape. I put some Elsie click click paper in the mix and I almost achieved that new look everyone is doing with all that stuff in the middle. I like how it turned out I just wish I could get a better pic.

I'll bring you more soon.

Baby Album using CuteWorld Girl II

Ok several days ago I brought you part one of the baby album I've been working on for a friend so now it's time to show you the rest. This section is more for all those studio pictures you take them too. 3wk, 6wk, 3mo, 6mo, 9mo and 1 year. After that I'm sending all the left over paper so that she can add to the rest of the album as the new mommy chooses. (I only used about half the pages)

THis is a title page and the 3 week page. I thought the green square would make a good journaling block with a larger picture underneath

This is the 6 week and 3 month page

This is the 6 month and 9 month page. After looking at it I wish I'd waited and done this one as the one year page. This is my favorite page.

This is the 1 year page. Not my favorite but it highlights a milestone. My thoughts were wallets of poses on the left side with a large maybe 5 x 7 of the favorite pose on the right.

Hope this gives you some idea's or just inspires you to get in that scrap area and scrap!

The Site is Back Up and Running

The site is back up and running. I hope that the change brings and easier and more enjoyable shopping experience. If there are any suggestions feel free to let me know.

July Newsletter

Some of the newsletter is hard to read. The first hard to read paragraph is talking about the fact that the store is "under construction" I have hired a new webdesigner and the site is in transition to him. You can not log in and shop at this time. Please come back soon and take a look. Due to the July 4th coupon not being able to be used that sale will be extended to next Friday the 11th. The site should be back to normal by the 9th.

The other paragraph was just wishing you all a good 4th of July!

Baby Album using CuteWorld Girl

I have been working on a baby album for a friend of mine. I'm going to post it in to segments. This is the first half of the album. I used the Slim Jim by Rusty Pickle. I really enjoyed experimenting with this new size as I'm a hard core 12 x 12 girl. It was fun and simple and I was really surprised at how much I was able to get on each page. The person that I'm giveing this to is a scrapbooker but I still included posted notes to let her know what my thoughts were and then she can go from there and make it her own.

This is the cover. I spritzed the cover with glitter mist and used some rub-ons from the Delightful Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle. I had envisioned a picture of the parents and baby on the cover. Oh and the previous Maya Road Chipboard Key Chain is attached instead of tons of ribbon.

Next page I thought would be great for a bunch of those first pics of that beautiful new babies 1st pics. The tab you see to the side is a tab for the second section of the book.

Next is a page for Mom and Dad's pics with their brand new baby. It can either hold two pics on each page or one pic and a note from each parent. I included some stickles to add a little extra.

Now we have taken care of baby, baby and parents, it's time for baby and grandparents. You will notice that my editing skills were a little shaky. The page on the left is straight but the magic wand jumped and framed some of the paper. For the for the word Grandparents I used my quick cutz handle.

That is it for this post. If you have any questions on what I used please let me know. I'm having sinus issues and my brain is not working really well. Hope you enjoy.

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.
