And he SCORES!

Hello again my scrappy friends!  Even though we had company today where I got to watch the kids, while my husband and his friend were running - training for a marathon in April - I got to scrap!  The kids played their new Disney Infinity and SkyLanders Xbox games, I was right next to them playing with my papers punches and Cricut!

This layout is of my son playing some basketball during sports skills week back in 2009.  I'm entering this into Sketch-N-Scrap challenge Sketch with Stash #10.  The challenge was to use the sketch below along with 2 border punches and one other punch.  I used EK success circle chain and binding border punches. The other punches were the Christmas ornament punch from SU! and circle punch from Martha Stewart....that's how the basketballs were made! DCWV paper stack The Sweet Stack was used for all of the patterned paper.  The title is cut from the Cricut Mini Monograms using white cardstock that I inked using Tim Holtz distress ink in spiced marmalade. 


Thanks for stopping by...hope to see you tomorrow too!

Twin babies card

Hello my scrappy friends!  I seem to have lost part of my previous post, not sure what I did, so here is the missing part!

One of my son's teachers is expecting twins next month.  He asked me to make her a card so I did!  I used the Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up for the carriages, DCWV patterned papers, miscellaneous ribbon from my stash, and My Sentiments Exactly! ltd. and Autumn Leaves for the word stamps.

This card was inspired not only from the miracle of new life but also from Twisted Tuesday's latest challenge, New Beginnings.  The challenge is to used something crafty that is new to you and the theme is for something new or in the beginning.  A baby, or babies!, are new and my new crafty thing the ribbon.  Although it was in my stash, it was newly won from a challenge I entered.

Be sure to check out Twisted Tuesday challenges for your chance to create something new!

Birthday Layout and Babies Card

Happy Birthday Layout

Merry Christmas my scrappy friends!  I hope your Christmas was joyous with faith, presents, friends and family!

I've gotten a little time to scrap!  This is a layout of my 11 year old son Declan from his 7th birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's.  Please tell me you are all this far behind in keeping memories!

I used Cricut Slumber Party for the crown and Art Philosophy & Accent Essentials (I think!) for the stars.  Papers and cardstock from DCWV, sentiment and circle stamps are from My Sentiments Exactly! ltd.

I am entering this layout for the Scrap Our Stash Challenge #10 - Word Art Inspiration.

Christmas cards

Well, hello my scrappy friends!  Once school started for my children back in September, I seem to have run out of time for creating anything with papers!  But, thank God for many ways, the least significant being able to craft once again.  I made 52 cards, assembly line style like I do each year for friends, family, co-workers and YES even teachers!  Politically correct I am not!

Inside is stamped, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:14" from CTMH, the Merry Christmas stamp on the front is from Studio G.  Simple embossing using my Big Kick and the Cuttlebug wreath folder, a snowflake punch I borrowed from my Aunt Barbara, an open scallop border punch from ek success, and red and white stickles round out my cute little cards!

I'm entering my cards into the CHRISTMAS theme challenge sponsored by Scrapping Everyday Miracles.

Thanks for looking and have a very blessed Merry Christmas!
