350 Cards & Gifts

Hello Summer! The kids are officially done school and holiday mode has kicked in! And with CHA around the corner, LOTS of scrapping with Teresa Collins new lines going on....all I can say is AMAZING stuff!

Here is my card set (with box) that was in the Paper Crafts 350 Cards & Gifts Issue. That magazine is filled to the brim with inspiration!! One of my FAVES!

Well I am off to bed...I need to get up before the sun tomorrow...YIKES...get me out of my craft room already!!! :-) :-)

The Pout

Oh I have seen this pout face many, many times...too many to count and every time it makes me laugh!!! It doesn't make me give in but it might work on Daddy .... :-) :-) :-)

I did this layout for the Teresa Collins/Tombow blog swap. For details on how I put this layout together check out Teresa's blog HERE. Also, be sure to swing by the
Tombow blog to see what their DT have created using the on the edge line!

We love you Daddy

I am so blessed to have married the most AMAZING man who happens to be the most AMAZING Dad! I did this layout in honour of Father's Day (which unfortunately we spent most of in the car travelling - coming home from a wedding). The envelope opens to hold more photos as well as notes the girls wrote to their Daddy.

For this layout, I used Teresa Collins Notations and On the Edge collections and Tombow products. Details on how to put the page together are on Teresa Collin's blog HERE.

I was so excited to have been asked by Jen Gallacher (LOVE her) to be a guest designer for her Stretch Your Sketch class over at Two Peas in a Bucket. You can check it out HERE.

Not too long ago my girls were invited to a Super Hero birthday and in this house of girls, we didn't have any superman or spiderman costumes kicking around:-) So we decided to make our own! They decorated their masks and capes and I bought them wigs! We even used some glimmer mist on the capes...scrapbooking supplies come in handy for LOTS of things:-) Sienna named herself "Super Sienna" and Madison was "Purple Girl". SO FUN!

Quin at Four

I made this mini album for a friend of mine about her son, Quin. Quin and Sienna are the cutest of friends and I am so lucky to have Quin come and play with her each week:-) It is so fun having a boy around the house for a change:-) I made this mini with mostly Teresa Collin's On the Edge line and with a bit of Sports Edition too!

The June Teresa Collins Newsletter is ready .... go and check it out HERE.

...did I ever fall off the scrapbooking train....YIKES!!!! My poor neglected little blog how I've missed you! This is what happens without design team assignments :-( Art Freckles closed their doors so sadly there was no deadline for the June kit....guess I need to apply for more design teams .... seems to be my motivation for scrapping - at least during these warms months :-) :-) Luckily I have some stuff I'm working on for Teresa Collins that I can post soon.....

We have been working lots on our yard and the big project has been staining the deck and our fence! I have also been busy prepping for my daughter's birthday that happened over the weekend...she turned FIVE!!! Where did my baby go??? I did a carnival theme party for her where we did lots of games to win prizes but the highlight without a doubt, was the jumping castle! I've also included a picture of the pinata I made:-)

I also wanted to let you know that my class "Around the Block" is happening now over at Miss Arts Papercrafting School. And there are so many other AMAZING classes to check out!!
