It’s been a pleasure

This is my last blog post as DT member of Scrapbook Circle. It has been a pleasure working with Lisa and my fellow DT members. I have enjoyed each and every kit Lisa has put together. I will definitely miss them! I thought I would share my favorite los that I created with Lisa’s kits.

Thank you Lisa!!! I wish you the best. It’s been a pleasure working with you!


A Little Janaury Goodness for You

The full January kit is now up!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Just popping in today to wish everyone a wonderful day, spent with the ones you love. Enjoy this special time of year! and remember the reason for the season.
Here’s a layout I created using the December kit “Reindeer Games”:

This layout documents the “tradition” of getting new PJ’s for Christmas each year…and yes, my boys got new PJ’s again this year too!

The Crate Paper line of goodies in this kit is amazing…especially the TONS of chipboard included!

Before I sign off, just want to say THANK YOU to everyone that has supported me through my term on the design team here at Scrapbook Circle…you are all wonderful! Thanks AGAIN to Lisa for giving me the opportunity! & looking forward to seeing what the new team creates for 2010!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Take care!


A Merry Christmas to All!

And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you enjoy the holidays!

You’ll forgive me if this isn’t a “crafty” blog post. Things have been so busy around here, I haven’t had time to create something new for today.

I thought I’d give you my best wishes for the holidays, some fun times and silly moments, just like my kids were having yesterday during our Christmas photo shoot:

I’ll see you next week for my final post here on the Scrapbook Circle blog!

tip of the day…..

Inspired by my creative buddy and fellow design team member Melanie I made this last minute gift for a friend:

It went together VERY quickly. I used my lovely stickles, pictures don’t do it justice how it shines. The frame I bought at Walmart, and the crackle paint at Michaels with my coupon. I sprayed it with some glimmer mist and tied some tulle and miniature decorations to finish it off. Easy!

A Little January Peek

Hopefully most of you are still busy creating with the December kit, but I thought you would want a little look at what is coming your way in our upcoming January kit.
I know you will be love what our new design team ladies are doing with the kit. Can’t wait to share more with you!

Documenting your Christmas Story

As Christmas draws nearer, take a moment out of your busy schedule, put aside your TO DO lists, and just think about what you want to document this Christmas. Maybe you have missed photo opportunities in the past. Are there details that you want to remember? Take a few minutes today to write yourself a quick list of MUST HAVE photos for the upcoming Christmas holiday!

A few things that I want to capture in photographs this Christmas:

*Christmas cookies (if I ever actually get them made!)

*Close up photos of my favorite decorations/ornaments (check! This is done!)

*My boys with their grandparents (how do I always miss this???)

You get the idea. I’d love to hear what is on your list of MUST HAVE Christmas photos!

Thanks for stopping by! Take care!


Not only for Christmas

This month’s kit is totally fabulous and versatile, even though it is full of Christmas embellishments it can still be used for non-Christmas themed projects. By adding a neutral ribbon I was able to create a thank you card. The lace paper was the perfect touch for this thank you card! I hope you are finding some scrappy time during this busy season!


Easy decorating for the holidays!

I used an 8×8 canvas (I got it at the dollar store!) and covered it with Crate Papers using Terrifically Tacky Tape to make sure it stayed put. Add a few Crate chipboard embellishments and those awesome Pink Paislee glitter letters and voila! I absolutely love how this turned out, it’s my favourite decoration in the house!

And why did I call it “Happy Season”? I always tell my husband I love this time of year because everyone seems happy. So I thought it was fitting! 🙂

Have a great week everyone!

tip of the day…..

I know I’ve said this probably every week BUT, I LOVE this December kit! I loved it so much I didn’t have a scrap of paper left to do this project, I had to use something from my stash. I did however have some chipboard and flare buttons to add:

Here are some closeups:

These are for two of my kids’ teachers. You can find these clear paint cans at Michaels *remember to use your coupon* they run around $2.99. You can fill it with anything you like, I happened to LOVE bob’s candy. 🙂
