More fun with October afternoon

Ok, i guess i've only made one layout that featured mostly this line... but here it is. there's a bit of Prima spaceboy mixed in there too.

Fun with October Afternoon

I know that Viv tried to carry this in her store, but being it's October Afternoon, of course there was problems. Pretty sad since October Afternoon is one of my fav manufacturers. *sigh*

Anyways, I was really anticipating these lines and wanted to share some of the layouts I created recently with it:

and I can't WAIT until the new lines come out, especially Cherry Hill!

Some fun stuff using some new American Crafts!

I recently got some fun new American Crafts paper and embellishments. I loved the bright colors in them, perfect to brighten up the winter blues here!

The line is called 'Teen', but as you can see here it can be used for so much MORE then that. I used the patterned paper (my fav is the crowns, they are glittered!), the Flair, the ribbon, and the journaling stickers all from that line. Mixed in some older Thickers and I was set.

So...here's what I made:

I'm strictly and 8.5x11 scrapper, but as you can see I like to mix it up and do landscape layouts too. I just add them all in the same album and don't care if they match up or not! lol!

Anyways, I'd love to see what you've all done recently!

Working Hard On Valentine's Day Themed Stuff

Hey There,

If you've been in any of the craft stores lately you will know that they already have the Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's displays and supplies everywhere!

One of my New Years resolutions for 2009 is to start on my projects early enough to actually enjoy the holiday or occasion. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely enjoy the process of gathering ideas, designing and creating my projects, actually most of the time creating truly relaxes me, but sometimes if I haven't finished said gift or project I find myself losing the joy that the gift of creativity brings!

Anyway, in keeping with the upcoming observances here are a few projects I am working on:

Valentine's Day Projects

Altered Journal

Post-It Note Holder

Altered Acrylic Photo Holder

Altered Photo Holder made out of binder clip and coaster

I will upload a few more Valentine's projects when they are complete. Until then, happy scrappin!

update on the Shop

hi there...

it's been WAY TOO long since my last post and so sorry for the neglect. the Shop has been in limbo and in the works of updates.

i am so thankful for all the years of the Shop and all the friends that have come along the way... hope you find the Shop for your scrappy needs and know that it's now a bit outdated with all the new goodies.

with the upcoming show this month, i'll be sure to keep an eye out on new fun stuff to be released. should there be anything of interest, don't hesitate to email and let me know... REMEMBER, the Shop can always try to get goodies that aren't in stock and at Shop pricing of 20%OFF!

hope everyone had a great holiday season and that 2009 be filled with memories and scrappy times :)
