Christmas 2007

I think i have just one more layout for Cmas 2007, I feel so accomplished! I think I have mentioned before that i really don't like to scrapbook cmas layouts, so it makes me even more excited that my cmas albums are almost caught up... and more importantly move on to more current (and fun) layouts! ;o)

Using up some more of the MMI papers I picked up at Whim-So-Doodle last time I was in St. Pete with Mom. The title on the first page uses all CTMH Dimensional Elements Monograms, painted, inked, and embellied.

I decided to give the Grungeboard another try, (i still like chipboard better) it painted up nicely, but I am still having issues with adhering it! I don't usually have the patience to use liquid adhesive but I think that is going to be the only solution :op

Finally, the second page...

I am sitting at home in my clean house (yeah!) just finished the second page to last weeks layout, totally looking forward to scrapping with some new cropping buddies tonight!

Naughty or Nice?

This is the other layout that I started at Saturday's crop, still working on the second side but wanted share anyways. Based off a semi-recent PageMaps sketch, I love the scattered strips of pp and how the inking really sets off the edge of each paper. I couldn't resist using up some of my velvet ric-rac I picked up at Scrapbook Market before they closed :o(

I got to use quite a few of my Quickutz on this one too: Lemonade SM, Maddie Anne Classic, and my Nesting Ovals (I have been using these way more than I thought!).

CS: CTMH Blush, Garden Green, Heavenly Blue, Colonial White
PP: My Mind's Eye Be Merry Collection
QK: Lemonade SM, Maddie Anne Classic, Nesting Ovals
Ink: CTMH Chocolate Distressing Inks
Embellies: CTMH Just Blooms & Leaves, Craft Buttons

I will be back later to share the other side... ;o)

My first Tally Crop!

So excited!!! Yesterday I actually got to go to a crop... my first since moving to Tallahassee! Met a very nice lady that I think will quickly become my new cropping buddy and friend ;o) Yeah Me! I only got this layout done and another started, but we did so much chatting that it didn't matter ;o) My hubby actually told me I was giddy when I got home (after 6 hrs of scrapping!) and I told him it was because I finally scrapbooked with humans instead of online or on the phone. Too funny!

Anywhoo, this layout is from Halloween 2007, using a PageMaps for the left side and my own to match for the right. We went to a Community Party as Cinderella, her Fairy Godmother (me), her pet rabbit (aunt amy), and just as Hailey dressed him... "a crazy man" (daddy)!

PP: CTMH Notebook
CS: CTMH Baby Pink & Heavenly Blue for Matts, Colonial White & Bamboo for journaling strips
Embellies: CTMH Baby Pink & Heavenly Blue My Accents & Ribbon, American Crafts
Quickutz: Journal Grand

Sand & Surf

For some reason, I never got around to posting this layout last week... but here it is from Inspired Blueprints #1 Sketch. Can't remember who the pp is from, but the big "&" sign and "{brackets}" are Tim Holtz Grungeboard (which I really did NOT like working with!), Quickutz Moxie Classic, everything else is CTMH. Just a fun and quick layout finishing up my Cruise Album, the first pic lifts up to reveal more beautiful landscapes of the sand and surf of Mexico! Again, using the CTMH 6-pocket page protectors cut down, folded under, and attached using CTMH Bigger Brads.

Oh, and my favorite part was making my own scalloped paper using my old trusty Fiskars Shape Cutter and the Oval Template (which has the large scallop around the outer edge)... just happened to align perfectly with the polka dots of the pp! (FYI: The Circle template has a smaller scalloped edge, too!)
