Been Very Busy Scrappin' !!

The past two days have been nasty here. Rain, wind, and falling temperatures. I used the time to my advantage and did some marathon scrapping. It worked out great! Time flew, I accomplished quite a bit, and I actually have some layouts to share with you all, instead of the usual paper piecings and other small projects.

I must have near a thousand zoo pictures so that is the theme I worked on.

As always, let me know what you guys think!

These pictures were taken during a very warm winter day. You can see there is still snow on the ground but it was near 65 that day!

This layout was really easy to do, but I like it because of the different kinds of paper I used for the leaves.

I absolutely LOVE this vellum paper!! I have no idea where I got it and I can't seem to find it anywhere I look. If you happen to recognize this paper and know where I might be able to get some more please let me know!

Thinking Snow???

Not me! I can wait for the first snow fall. However, I was in a swap with a snow theme. This is what I came up with. I used my Cricut and the Speaking Of Winter cartridge. It was simple and quick, two things I love when making multiples. The snowflake borders are adhesive. I bought them on clearance at Walmart last year right after Christmas, they were 15 cents each! I used white cat's eye chalk around the edges to give it a 'snowy' look.

Ready for Some Christmas Scrapping?

I am!!!

I am using my Cricut to make Christmas Gift Tags this year. I used both Joys of the Season and and Christmas Cheer to make these tags. Super easy and super fast!!

Here is a recipe page for Gingerbread People. This is a recipe that the boys and I make every Christmas.

More Goodies.....

Here are a few more things I have recently completed.

This Betty Boop pattern did not turn out as good as I had hoped : ( She is alright, but I had higher hopes for the finished product.

I made two of these Tinkerbells. I adore Tinkerbell, that is the only reason I made her. With three boys in the house I have little use for girly things. I will probably end up giving all three of these PP's away.

Let me know what you all think!

Hi All!

Halloween, one of my favorite holidays, it getting closer! In honor of that I am posting a few little Halloween themed projects I completed this week.

Hope you like them :)

This journal box was super easy to make, and cute! The middle is NOT blue, but purple. For some reason it shows up blue on my digital :(

I am just beginning to get into stamping, much to my poor husband's horror :) I made these deco squares easily enough. I think I am ready to move on to more exciting things like heat embossing now :) Wait until I explain what that means to him!

This little PP was super fast and really easy to make. What's better is that my boys actually like him!

That is it for now, but keep checking back because I have been very busy and have tons more to post!
