I've gone Scrap-Happy!!!

What an AWESOME weekend! On Saturday morning, 3 of my sweet friends came over and we set up shop and scrapbooked from 9am to 3am on Sunday! Then we slept until 8am and scrapbooked more!! We had a blast and I am SO looking forward to doing it again soon! Check out what I got done....

I really like the paper that came in the January promo - the Felicity Collection. They have been very versatile for boy or girl pages.
What a little monkey!! :)

I never like to cover up such beautiful patterned paper, so this was a good alternative. I got to add some fun pics and you can still see a good chunk of the paper behind!

I LOVE the new CTMH stamp set Boys A Play (the traffic signs)! It is so fun and has had many uses so far! And my new favorite alpha is the Cocktail Alphabet, which included upper case, lower case,punctuation and numbers!! And It is not a coincidence that the paper and the kids clothes match so well... I do this on purpose! :)
Between the adorable pics, the Boom-Di-Ada paper and the fav alphabet, I love these pages! And it is not very often that I get to put dump trucks on Lily's pages!
The Animal Cookies paper made these cute pics of my brother and kids come to life!

Alright, so this one is a tad inappropriate, but I find it is those everyday moments that get lost so quickly, so luckily, we will always get to remember just how graphic children's potty books can be! :) And I got to have a lot of fun with my Cuttlebug!
Gotta love the 8-1/2 x 12 pics that you can print at Costco for $1.49 - they sure make pages come together quick!
I love my Cuttlebug!!
Lily's sleeper was my inspiration for this paper. I took my apple stamp and random stamped this page, added glitter to a few apples, then needed a pic to put on it. Is it wrong that I took a pic to match the paper? I think it is supposed to be the other way around... :)
Lovin' the Topstitch paper!
Random stamping + Cuttlebug + Adorable Pics.... Priceless!
Using the January promo - the Felicity Collection, I was able to capture a fun moment between my sisters and I.
The Backwoods stamp set was one that I never thought I would use, but turns out it came in really handy on these pages of tree cutting! Supper simple page, but I really like the end result!
Using Topstitch paper, I scrapbooked my kids looking at their scrapbooks!
This Boom-Di-Ada paper works for so many things, boy or girl! Not to mention that the "Heartfelt" felt pieces are a perfect match!
So, that is all for now (!!!)! I really look forward to my next marathon scrapbooking session! :)

March 2010 Hostess Club Project

Isn't this the neatest little calendar that you have ever seen?! Measuring about 6" wide, it is a spectacular finished product and looks great on your desk! You can choose to make this project with patterned paper, or you can stamp your own (as I did). The choice is yours! Join my 2010 Close To My Heart Hostess Club and I will continue to teach you new projects and techniques throughout the year! :)

Happy National Papercrafting Month! :)

And Happy New Year (of course)! :) Hope that you all had a lovely Christmas season! This is what I have been working on in the few weeks before and the time after Christmas...

Here are the scrapbook pages for the Topstitch WSOTG that I will be holding this month. I have also created these two pages using the same paper, but in a "boy" version. I will post them soon - just adding some finishing touches!

And these are the cards... Could the be any cuter??!!!

I LOVE the new Caboodle paper - it is SO cute! Here is a page I threw together using it and the awesome new Irresistables Lots of Dots letters (on the words 'owen's' and 'recharging'). When you ink these letters, they resist the ink on the dots, leaving this beautiful finish!
And here is the Caboodle WSOTG layout. I have yet to create the cards, but will soon!

Using one of my favorite paper packs from years ago, I created these pages using the Cocoa Cafe paper! Glad I have a stock pile of it! :)

I love the Big Pinks Just Blooms Paper Flowers - they add such a unique touch to your pages (and fill in much space)! :)
That's all for now! Don't forget that the Felicity Promo is on until the end of January (see details below) and that I will be holding workshops for the Topstitch paper packet on January 21st from 7-10pm and on January 23rd from 1-4pm. Contact me for more details! See you then!
