A sneak peek

Here is a sweet tweet just for you, a sneakie into Scrapbooking Fanatics March kit. Sadly this will be the last monthly kit for Scrapfan, so you won't want to miss out. Look for the kit to be posted in early March. Don't be too sad, I am sure Jayme has some great ideas up her sleeve, besides no one can beat her prices and well, we just love our Jayme, she's a special lady and I'll back her 100% any day! Have a happy Wednesday! :-)

In this next layout, I also used Daydream level 2 paper and Pretty Pins, these are so cute, see my little fairy holding one as her wand and another in the crcocheted flower!!!! I also used the Happy Ending stamp set.

Cards cards cards!

I made 4 cards this afternoon using the scraps from the previous layouts. Everything you see was part of the Scrapbooking Fanatics Feb kit with the exception of the Heidi Grace stamps....which I have had in my stash forever!!!!!

Oh, the circle edge you see on all the cards was made with my new Martha Stewart edge punch, one of my new favorite things! :-)

Family Day

In Alberta we have family day, a stat holiday in which we make the most of time with our family. Today we spent the afternoon outside taking turns sledding behind the Prowler.
Even though it was -20, we had a wonderful time! Afterwards we went in for hot chocolate.

Scrapbooking Fanatics Feb kit creations

This layout features a photo of my Dad, circa 1956/57. I thought this paper was perfect for an older photo!This photo is a few years ago but it is so sweet!


This layout is too funny!!! My teen aged neice was playing along with the little kids and pretends she can't find any Easter eggs, she's great. When the hunt was over she found an egg high in the tree, like it was meant just for her! I used the Daydream paper pack and Feb stamp of the month Easter Eggs for this layout...and alot of scissor distressing!!!

Happy Valentines Day!
This is the layout we did at my monthly CTMH club. I still need to add my photos as I am hoping my hubby takes me out for the occasion. I will then add photos from the evening. the little 3x3 card on the side opens up to reveal some hidden journalling.
All products are from Close To My Heart. I created the title with Oxford Color Ready Alphabets. I LOVE them! They are so easy to use, I used my sponge dauber to apply the Hollyock ink and then used my Heart throb stamp set to stamp the sides of the letters. Easy Peasy!

Some Bunny

Loves You!!!!
Is this card stinkin' cute or what????
I made this card for my Children to give to Grandma for Valentines day, I like that it's not traditional. I used the Emporium Paper pack and Sweet Leaf Ribbon.

A couple of double pagers

Good Times:
I used one of my favorite paper packs on this layout. It's Notebook level 2 from Close To My Heart, I love how striking it looks with the black cardstock. I also used the Shining Star stamp set from Close To My Heart.
Twin Lakes:
I used the Magic Moments paper pack from Close To My Heart to create this layout. I like how my title turned out, I used the Friendship alphabet stamp set, really like that there are two sizes for this font, so versitile!

Just a few cards

I am not a card maker, but tonight I felt the urge to create a few! ;-)
This card is created with That's Amore paper from Close To My Heart as well as the Ms. On The Go stamp set....LOVE this series!!! I used Exclusive Inks markers and liquid glass on my image to finish it off.
On this card, I used Stardust paper from Close TO My Heart and the You Rock stamp set. Also a couple of cute star brads. I rocked and rolled (Fitting eh?lol) the guitar image on two different colors, love the effect.
On these cards I used the That's Amore paper pack again and the Ms. Sweetheart stamp set. This time I used the CTMH blending pen and inks to fill in my images. A nice soft effect. I really like the little note cards, they will be great in my kids lunch kits on the Friday before Valentines' day.
