Hog-Tied Fun Layout

My mom found this great picture of Thomas when he was little. We're not sure exactly what he was doing with the baby pigs though. He could have been helping or getting into trouble. Lets go with helping :) Either way he was too cute!

Dear Lizzy Card


This is one of the cards I made with my Dear Lizzy card kit from American Crafts. The whole line can be summed up into one word for me...perfect.

Christmas in April Card


Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Christmas. I love everything about it, so when I say this Penny Black stamp in the clearance bin, I snapped it up! I used Copics, Prisma Glitter (CTMH), Prima Flowers, Maya Road Pins, and some fun stitching.

Ahh, Christmas...make sure to keep the spirit of it all year round!

Magnolia Tilda Card


I think I am finally getting better using Copics! This is Tilda with Thistle by Magnolia. The stamp inside is from Unity. It says "plant a seed of love." I put liquid glass by Close To My Heart on the Prima flowers and dumped on some Prisma glitter, also by CTMH. Thanks for looking!

Some Bunny Loves You

Happy late Love Day! I hope everyone had a great time with their families and loved ones. I got the inspiration for this card from the Magnolia Ink Magazine. They have the most amazing artwork in it. I am bound and determined to get better with my Copic Markers. I need to get some Magnolia stamps and practice!

The bunny stamp is from Provo Craft. Paper is Making Memories Vintage line and the big orange felt is from the Dollar Store. I got a whole pack of different colors. Love when that happens!

Love Notes Book

Out For Design Team Work

A little late to be posting for love day...but here it is. I made this book for my husband and I to put little love notes to each other in. He has written me a letter in a small notebook every morning before he leaves for work. After 10 years, that is a lot of notes! I thought it would be neat to have a few in here to pass on to our children. We want to carry on the tradition of Love and what it takes to have a great marriage to them.

Paper is Sassafrass, flowers Prima and one handmade, black glitter letters are Pink Paislee.

Have a great week and don't forget to let someone know just how much you love them!

Hello Friend Card

A quick card to add to my box. I have been coating my flowers from Prima with Glossy Accents and then pouring on glitter or microbeads. It has a really nice effect and is super fun. I do it over a coffee filter because the microbeads tend to bounce away! Paper is Cosmo Cricket.

Halloween Cat Layout

Ummm...Can you tell I don't scrapbook in order? I just go through my picture drawer and pull out whatever inspires me. I don't like to be pressured into only doing what is current. It stresses me out! So here is Alex from Halloween. She was the most beautifulist cat around! Supplies are Making Memories and Prima.

I was inspired by purple today. It is my favorite color after all. Stamp is from Unity and the butterflys are Quickutz. I hope you have a joyous day!

Easter Egg Layout

Another layout of Cutie Garrett! Paper and Easter eggs stamp are Close To My Heart and the Wee Little One rub-on is from Prima's Nursery Tales Collection. I tried to mist a butterfly onto the background cardstock, but it ended up looking too girly for me. Oh well, I think it covered up nicely...

They Sugar My Lips

I am looking forward to Spring and getting outside for some backyard fixing. This picture of Garrett was taken on our porch last Easter. The journaling reads: Garrett tried Peeps for the first time at Easter and considering the fact that he thinks marshmellows are one of the four food groups, he loved them! He was pleasantly surprised they they "sugared his lips."

Paper is Sassafrass and the black backround rub-ons are Pink Paislee. The diecut lips are Quickutz.

Love Card Handmade By Husband!

I have been sick for a while with kidney problems and my husband has been running the household. One day he decided to venture into the Scrapbooking Room and make me a card. I heard banging around and some cursing. :) Hours later, he emerged with this sweet card. I was so touched and then I opened it...and laughed until I cried.

Too Funny!! Leave it to a man to turn Crafting into something else!
