Wedding Card

Hi Everyone,
It has been awhile since my last post. I really just don't know where this year has gone. My summer was just non-stop. In July we had a wedding to go to, so I decided to make a card. I don't make that many cards but I do enjoy them. What I like the most about making cards is that you can use a lot of scraps. We were giving a gift card so I made a little holder on the inside cover for the card. I used my cricut to cut out the word forever and its shadow. With a prima flower and a few embellishments from my stash, the card came together pretty quickly.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Artist Printers Tray

Hi Everyone,
This is a project that I did a little over a month ago, but I am just now getting it posted. I really liked putting this together. I have one more picture to add but just haven't found the right one. I cut paper for each of the openings with my Cricut, inked the edges, & then pop dotted the pictures in front. Mostly everything is Prima (paper, flowers, butterflies, & pearl swirls). The charms, metal flowers, & stick pin was just things I had in my stash. On two of the corners I took a piece of cardstock and used a punch along one edge (either MS or Anna Griffin), I had some lace with pearls on it that I added along the edge, & then embellished on top.
Have a great day.

Valentine Mail Boxes

Hi Everyone,
I did these little mailboxes for my grandchildren. We will not be seeing them for Valentine's Day so I have already put them in the mail to them. The only thing that I actually had to go out and purchase were the tin boxes themselves. All the other stuff (paper doilies, flowers, embellishments, buttons, and ribbon) was already in my stash. I filled each with candy and I know they will enjoy them.
I hope you all have a great Valentine's Day.

Recipe Layout

Hi Everyone,

As you know if you read my blog I belong to a group of scrappie ladies and we try to get together as many times as possible during the year to scrap, laugh, and just have a really good time. Well, every January we get together at my sisters house for a weekend of fun. This will be the 3rd year that we exchange recipe layouts. They are a lot of fun to do and we have a very nice collection of recipes. This year my recipe is a Pork Chop Casserole. It is really good and this layout was so fun to do. I used my Cricut a lot for this layout. From My Kitchen is the cart I used for all the utensils, stove, and title. The paper is by October Afternoon (Modern Homemaker). I was having trouble trying to decide how I was going to outline the title, because there was no shadow feature for the words on the cart. I tried inking and chalking but it did nothing for me. Then I remembered that I had the markers to use on the Cricut and that was the ticket. I will be using these again. Have a great day.

Altered Picture Frame


My family is having a reunion on my mothers side this weekend. My sister is having it at her house and I volunteered to make a memory frame, for the people that have passed. I bought a regular frame at M's, it had a picture in it, I pulled out the picture and the glass. I bought a roll of cork and glued that to the cardboard backing. Then I bought a piece of satin material and placed that in the opening of the frame. I found a little cross, flowers, and some tulle, and just started glueing it all around the frame. On my cricut I cut a scroll frame for Home Accents and the word Memories from Heritage. Used the mirror paper for those, added some bling, and some little Prima roses. I also Glimmer Mist some little plain white roses from M's in the bridal section and glued them to the tops of plain tacks to hold the pictures in place(forgot to take a picture of those). But all in all I think the frame came out good. Thanks for looking.

It's Been to Long......

Hi Everyone,

I can not believe its been a year since I have blogged. I really did want to sit down many times and blog, but something always seems to happen. I have been doing some scrapbooking. I will try to post on a regular basis. I bought the Gypsy when it first came out on HSN and I have to say "I LOVE IT". I use it on pretty much every project I do.

Since getting it I have been wanting to make my own wordbooks. Well I finally dipped my toe in the water so to speak and it is AWESOME. I have a neighbor and a relative that are having babies soon, so here are the two books I made . I just use cereal boxes for the middle of each page and by the time you put your cardstock and paper its thick enough. I have a Bind it All machine by Zutter, first time using that tool also. The paper for both books is Little Yellow Bicycle and one of the books has a TM baby pin attached to the bow.
I really enjoyed doing these books. I'll be blogging again soon.

Webster's Pages

Hello Everyone,

I am feeling very sad today. It is our last DT meeting tonight. BUMMER!!!!! I can not believe that this year has gone by so fast. I had such a wonderful time being on the DT. I feel like I have learned so much from the other ladies on the team and our wonderful teacher Melissa. I want to thank both Melissa and Janet for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this fabulous experience. The other ladies on the team are the best. We had so much fun at the meetings. Some of the groups nights were a real challenge because we had to finish a complete layout before leaving. I had never made a layout that fast, but we were paired up with another member and it all seemed to come together in the end. It was great.

Now on to my final DT layout. Our challenge this time was to actually use a sketch. I have never really used sketches in the past, but I must say I enjoyed it. We had 4 to choose from and the sketch was actually a one page layout that we had to make into a two page layout. We were given a few embellishments from Webster's Pages and told to use new paper.

Here is my layout:

This is my daughter when she was 16 months old(she is 27 now). When I received the blue cameo I know what picture I was going to use. I love the Webster's paper and all the new embellishments they have.

The gold backgound and blue/white paper is from the Webster's Pages, so is the fabric tag, lace and cameo. The flower paper is SEI, gold Bazzill cardstock, and Tattered Angel tile. I painted the tile with my Ink Pots.

All the flowers, leaves, gold scrolls, gold butterfly and blue bird are Prima. I have Jenny Bowlin buttons. Stick pins and ribbon for the tags. I inked the edges of all the papers & tags. Sewed one end of the lace to gather it and pop dotted a lot of the embellishments. I have to say I really like the way this layout came together.

Thanks for looking! Lisa
