Bobby's Birthday

Yes I am a little behind! Bobby's birthday was in September and I am just getting these scrapped.  I was inspired by a page on Pinterest where the background was made from strips of washi tape. I used scraps and my stash for this entire layout!  I love the colorful background.  I bought that Happy Birthday piece several years ago and thought it worked perfectly with this page!

Halloween Tradition

Finally a layout! Maggie painting the store front window at Halloween.  
 She came in third overall after all the judging. All products from my stash- mostly scraps!

 My favorite photo is the one looking thru the window as she paints!

Christmas Card Holder

I did get some scrapping done last evening. Ever wonder what to do with those cards you received for Christmas? You don't really want to discard them-especially the handmade ones. So I started scrapping a pocket page every year that holds the cards we received for that year. I first extended a bracket shape in length and add a perforated line to make it easier to fold.  I add an extender on each side to add the depth needed to hold the card. I add this page to the special Christmas album.




















I was flattered to know that some of you will be lifting the Sympathy cards I made! That is what it is all about-sharing the inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share my creations with you.

Sympathy Cards

Unfortunately I had to make two Sympathy Cards over the weekend. Both cards were from inspiration I found on Pinterest.
The first card I made in all white and embossed the background using the Cuttle Bug branch embossing folder and layered the background with a silver pearl paper. I echoed the layering int the sentiment using Spellbinders scalloped oval nested dies.


















The second card I made in yellow and white layering the background and using a Stampin Up border embossing folder then echoed the layering inside the embossed border. I used a floral stamped image and added the Spellbinder Butterfly and a punched butterfly. I used Distress Ink in Scattered Straw to stamp the image. 


















The font I used on both cards was Lavanderia, which is a free font but to find it you have to do a search for it as it is available at several places.  

I hope by adding more information to my blog posts it will be more helpful to you. If there is anything else I can add as we go along please let me know by adding it to the comments. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be more active then I have been oin the recent past.

New card I have been making-

is known as a Flip-it card with the dies made Sizzix! I am loving this little card and too the free class over at Scrapbook.com learning how to use it in more then one way.  Iused it as get well card as well as a birthday card just by changing the paper and the embellishments. Here is a link to the free classes: http://www.scrapbook.com/classes/category/Card_Making.


The upper card is what the card looks like folded and the lower is the open and the circle has flipped to a different look.

My grandchildren go to the hockey games with their folks. They get involved during the breaks they join in the Dance Cam and have managed to dance there way onto the Jumbotron.

Thanks for looking!

Maggie's Back to School

Maggie's back to school page! Maggie moved to a "middle school" this year which is grades 6,7,& 8.  The journaling reads: This year you not only moved to grade 6 but you moved to a whole new school in a new school system. The same school your mother went to for middle school.  I wish you well this year with all the changes. Love you! Gramma 10/15.
