Fall Classes

I am offering some Scrapbooking classes this Fall and Winter. The first class is for 2 two-page layouts with the new Pathfinding workshop. It is perfect timing for those beautiful fall pictures that I am sure you have all been taking. And if not, there is still time to get those gorgeous colors on pictures. I know I have taken a lot of pictures this fall already, and I hope to take a lot more.

There are 2 levels of this workshop that you can get. One is with a beautiful stamp set, the paper packet, 3 extra sheets of cardstock, an instructional brochure  and 2 different packages of embellishments. The cost of the complete set is $40.

The second option is to get all the supplies, without the instructional brochure and the stamp set. The cost of this option is $31. And with both kits, you will still be taking quite a few good-sized pieces of paper home to make some more paper-crafts with.

The date of this workshop is October 9, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. Message me on Facebook by Monday, September 29th if you want to take this class, as I have to order the supplies for it.

I hope you will join me for this fun class on October 9th!

Layout with the new Skylark paper

I really, really love this new paper! It is so summery and beautiful! Love the colors and design. I know I will be making many more items with this paper.

Fun scrapbooking weekend planned and you are all invited! Just let me know that you are coming so I know how many people to plan for. 

I will be bringing some snacks, like a fruit tray and a veggie tray for you all to share. Saturday for supper we will be ordering in some pizza for whoever is interested. If you could all bring a bag lunch for the other meals that would be great! 
Friday night is the time to dress in the '60's style. We will be having prizes for this so do your best!

All weekend long you can earn tickets for a Grand Prize, which is really going to be GRAND! I am so excited about this prize and can hardly wait to see who will be the lucky winner! 

My stamps, stamp pads, Cricut and other supplies will be available for you to use. And I will also have cardstock, other paper and embellishments available for purchase. 

Hope to see you there!

Camping Mini Album

I finally finished putting the pictures into this mini album. I started it about a year ago, and now looking at all these camping pictures, makes me long for summer and another season of camping. I hope you enjoy looking at this album, and possibly be inspired to create one of your own. I got my inspiration from this blog:

 Most of the supplies I used were from Close To My Heart. The trees on the front cover were some laser-cut borders I had bought in Cody, Wyoming on our trip a few years ago.

 Lots of little inside pages that are so fun to make.
 The journalling , of course, is yet to be done!

 Little touches that make the page more special...in this case, the holes along the edge of the page.

 It felt a little strange to use some of the shipping boxes that I get my CTMH product in, but I sure love the finished look of the cardboard pages! Goes to show that CTMH is useful in all sorts of areas.

 Paint splatters are also a nice touch for a distressed look.

I think the back cover still looks a little bare. Maybe I will end up adding something to it yet, just not sure what. What are your thoughts?

Thanks for looking at this lengthy post. Hope you enjoyed it and feel free to drop me a comment.

New project complete!

I guess you could call me a Jack (or Jill ) of all trades, and a Master of none! I love doing a bit of every craft there is, I think. I just completed this colorful cool sweater. It is crocheted and was Oh So Much Fun to do! It is a little girl's sweater, size 5, but I'm thinking it looks a little big for that size. I don't have a little girl to fit it one, so I don't really know. It is meant to be a little wide, so it is even harder to tell.

I hope you find this sweater as cute as I do! Too bad I don't have anyone to wear it.

Wedding Preparations

The wedding of our daughter is sure coming up fast! I am busy working on the 2 little flower girl dresses. I decided to use the Close To My Heart Rosette Ribbon for the trim at the waist. It was a perfect match!
