I just had to put this picture up on my blog to show how big and cute the kids are getting. Jamie and Jon should be really proud of their children. They are all so excited about the new baby coming. I think we all are excited and nervous at the same time!
send me an e-mail with your address and I will get that off to you on Monday!
Here is a good way to start off the Christmas Holiday. How about some BasicGrey Chip Board and a BasicGrey Clear stamp set giveaway! This is my way to wish all you bloggers a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Just leave a post by 9:00 pm Saturday night and I will have the random picker draw a winner! (U.S.A. only) Good Luck Ü
This card is for someone who has achieved good grades on their report card. I used foam stamps from Inkadinkado. These stamps sure are made well. One thing I like about their stamps is that they are mounted on clear plastic. That makes it really easy to place the stamp. And when you wash them off they don't feel like they are going to fall apart. I hand cut the apples and inked the edges and drew lines with a fine black marker. The circles where punched with a 1/2" circle punch then I used an office hand punch for the centers. I also outlined the letters with a fine black marker.
I made this card out of a Laminate sheet. What I did was I put the clear laminate sheet through the Laminator, cut it down to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I stamped with Staz-on ink for the swirls which is from CTMH rubber stamp set. I inked the bottom of the dew drops with the black staz-on ink. That is where I hid the adhesive to attach to the cardstock, under the swirls, then I put the dew drops on top of that so you don't see the adhesive. On the strip of cardstock I used a versamark pad for the water mark of swirls. I rounded the two corners.
Now I am thinking I can make a mini album out of all the sheets of laminate I have Ü
Here is my Cricut Layout. All the squares, butterflies, flowers and letters were made from my cricut. I have all the instructions on the last post. I just wanted to post the finished layout. The pictures are of my grandkids and my daughter April. This was our last visit in July 2008
I went to a Scrapbook Expo last weekend with my two daughters April and Jamie. It actually was perfect timing when we went. This is the same week that my daughter Jamie found out about the news of her unborn son. My husband and I were able to spend some time talking with her and giving her all the support that we possible can in this situation. I think being at the expo helped her get her mind off what challenge lies ahead. We really had a great time. What mother wouldn't! We shopped and scrapped on Friday and then took a class on Saturday and did some more shopping and scrapping. We won lots of fun prizes too. Between the three of us we won over 10 prizes. It was to our advantage though, because the crowd was slim pickins. This was the first event that they had in St. George and they didn't have a great attendance. Hopefully for the vendors it will be better next year!
These are the make and takes that Robert's Craft had at their booth. Some of the things were made with the Cricut.
Right now I am working on a scrapbook for my husband. Jim went on a trip with his two sisters and brother to Philadelphia. They also went to New York, Washington DC and Canada. Pictured In this layout is his two sisters Ruth and Carol and brother Bill. The journaling is blank because my husband will fill in all the info about his trip.
I have lived in California all my life.
I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 32 years. We have 5 great kids and 11 wonderful grandchildren. My hobbies are scrapbooking and paper crafts of all kinds.
