Toot Toot!!

My Local scrapbook store asked me to be a guest blogger, woohoo! The Scrapbook Nook of Ludington Michigan is a great store that carries all the latest and greatest products. The store owner Vanessa has been working on a blog and plans to add an online store. I'm really excited about it b/c sometimes I can't make it to the store and would really like to take advantage of the GREAT sale promotions. I blogged about the Winter Days layout I just did and extended a button challenge to all her viewers. You should hop on over to the The Scrapbook Nook Blog.

Winter Days-Layout

I wanted to create a layout using buttons in a different way, thinking outside the box. I really like the way it turned out, the blues, whites & creams really work well with each other. I used Stampin' Up buttons, cardstock and designer paper, Prima chipboard alphas, a Jenni Bowlin calendar and other buttons and pearls from my stash.

2 Page Layout

I finished this 2 page Christmas layout for Marion's 31 Challenge.

I scraplifted the design for this layout from an issue of Scrapbook Etc. I'm so way behind in my scrapbooking, just to give you an idea this is Christmas 2007. Yup, that's right 07'. I don't really think about how far behind I am, that's stress I don't need, I just get 'em done when I can. I probably wouldn't know what to do with myself if I ever got caught up. So don't feel bad if you're way behind you're not the only one.

Pin Cushion & Button Storage

I made this cute pin cushion using Stampin' Up "Sweet Stiches" fabric. I also picked up this old muffin tin to use for button storage.

Christmas Mini Album

My day 5 project for Marion's 31 Day Challenge was to finally finish my Christmas mini album. I really like how it turned out. I used lots of great products from Basic Grey (Figgy Pudding), Stampin' Up, Prima, Tim Holtz, K&Co., and Sizzix. The mini album shape is from Michael's, I picked that up Christmas time 09'. Figgy Pudding is an old line from BG but is one of my all time favorites. To see my 31 day challenge videos go to my youtube channel and click on date added.

"New Technique" - Embossing Felt

I saw this idea in a recent magazine and had to try it and share it with you. I'm participating in Marion Smith's 31 Day Challenge on youtube. This was my day 3 project.

Supplies: Felt, Mod Podge or other decoupage medium, paint brush, embossing folder and machine.

Step 1: Paint one side of felt piece with mod podge.

Step 2: Let dry completely.

Step 3: Put felt piece in embossing folder and run through your machine.

Voila embossed felt, its that easy!!

I wanted to thank all the wonderful ladies that have purchased kits from me this past year. It has been really fun exchanging emails with you. I feel as though I have made friends all over the world. The web is an amazing thing that from this little midwest town in the US I'm able to reach people all over the US, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, UK and more. Truly awesome!! Thanks for your support!


New Kits Coming Soon!!!!!

I received some new paper stacks for Christmas and I'm excited to make up some new kits. I also went through my other paper stacks and have quite a big pile of beautiful paper that is just waiting for me to put kits together. For those of you who don't know I put together mini album kits and sell them here on my blog (under the kits for sale tab at the top of my blog). My whole reason for making kits, besides the fact that it's fun and I love it, is to recycle. I love pattern paper and they often come in stacks that have 2 or 3 sheets of each pattern. I know myself well enough that I won't use all of it. So I've found that creating these kits is a fun way to make sure that the paper gets to someone who will use it. My kits range in price depending on how big they are but are very affordable.

So stay tuned for new upcoming kits!

Happy New Year - I'm Back

I know its been almost a month since my last post. I haven't been doing a lot of crafting. I made about 38 Christmas cards and some gift card holders and that was about it. It has been really nice spending time with friends and family and enjoying the holidays. Though I have to say I've been itchin' to get craftin' again. I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday season. Here are a couple of pics of my Christmas cards. I tried to use up pattern paper I already had so I ended up having 10 or so different cards.
