I love to share what I have learned in the art of scrapbooking and paper crafts.

Oh, What a Victory!

Just finished watching the Kentucky Derby.  I can't imagine how exciting it must be to see it in person!  You never know if the favorite will win and today he didn't.  Can you imagine how excited the winning owner must be!  My winner today is the Victory paper pack.  I was so happy to see a paper that would work so well for the men in my family.  With two sons in the Army, those colors certainly go with many of my pictures.  They are also great to use for outdoor pictures.  Here is what I came up with.  I started with the Workshop on the Go and then made another layout for my swap.  There was plenty of paper and I'm so excited that I'll be able to scrap many more pictures with this wonderful paper pack.

My swap pages were fun to make.....

We also swapped a card.  This pattern came from the Workshop On The Go too.

Well, I'm off to my creative corner to put the finishing touches on the layouts I created last weekend.  I have been so anxious to do this all week.  But you know what it's like.  Someone has to work.

Have a great day!

I'm Back!!

I spent a wonderful time last weekend with friends at a scrapbook retreat in the North Country. Loved my time and had so much fun.  Can you believe I created 21 layouts?   That is 42 pages!!! Now I do have to get my trusty Cricut out to make some titles, but other than that, they are done done done.  

As promised, I will be sharing pictures of my Sympathy/Get Well Card Kit for sale.  I haven't been able to plan a Card Workshop, so I decided to make kits to sell.  Sometimes life just gets in the way. You make 10 cards for $10.  How great is that?   If you would like a kit of your very own, please contact me at detty1957@hotmail.com. Kits come stamped and ready to assemble or you can choose to use your own stamps to make creations of your own.  For payment, I take Paypal or you could mail a check.  So here is what I came up with.......

I just love that hedgehog, don't you?  You make two of each card and you're ready for those times when you must come up with a card quickly.  I will also have these card kits available at my next crop on May 19th.  This crop benefits the Booster Committee of Tri-City Christian Academy.  We scrap from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm at 12 Rocky Hill Road in Somersworth, NH.  We'd love to see you there.  $10.00 pays for your space and you get a yummy meal prepared by one of our scrappers.  Hope to see you there!
