Thank you cards

Friday, September 25, 2009

I made a set these thank you cards for my friend Jayme who is getting married on the beach in a couple of weeks. I copied the idea from my friend Amy who copied the idea from the Archiver's website. They were very simple to make.

Don't Blink page

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

I saw this page on Stacy Julian's blog a while back. I loved it and knew exactly what page I wanted to create using this idea. I have two children and the youngest started Kindergarten this year. I received some pictures in the mail yesterday (including this 5x7 that I had been waiting on to make the page with) and made this page last night. It is very simple but it is one of my favorite pages.

Journaling says: Don't Blink... cuz just like that your baby goes off to Kindergarten

It's a Blizzard page

I copied this idea from a magazine of course but I love how the page turned out. I made this page for Kyle's book, it is from our snow day back in February.

8 pages in one night

Friday, September 18, 2009

I am in the midst of a contest this year involving a challenge my CM consultant put us up to. The challenge is to create a minimum of 8 pages per month (it started out as 2 per week but then evolved). I am in the running with 3 other ladies. I am way behind at least 2 of them, probably all three. Part of the challenge is that you have to create at least your 8 pages each month. If all do that then the tie breaker would be who created the most. Well it was August 31 and I had not completed any pages for August yet so even though I had to get at 5:30 and go to work the next day, I stayed up, neglected anything around the house that needed to be done and scrapped. I got all 8 pages finished just shy of midnight (so I am not out yet). Here are 6 of those pages (2 of them are really bad), these are not my favorite pages by any means but they are not half bad and the best part is they are finished.

Fall soccer 08 pages for Kyle's sports album, I used an idea from a magazine for this layout

Softball 09 pages for Kaitlyn's book

Slip n Slide page. I had created the journal box and 6x6 strip on the right side of the page at Archiver's during a make and take weekend a while back. I was just waiting for the perfect pictures to put on it. So really all I had to do to this page was add the orange background paper and letter stickers, journal a little and this page was complete.

I recently got the new 12 inch circle cutter from CM so of course I had to use it on one of the pages.
