Care Bears

I had so much fun making this book for my grand daughter Emily. I made it for her birthday in September. When my daughter Amie was little was when the Care Bears first came out. She had everything Care Bears. We have some book from then and that is what I used to try and have them as close as possible to the originals. I cut about 90% of this book with my Cricut. Could not have done it without that machine. Each bear has 5 layers (Outer layers are the Bazzill shiney, 2 layers of white paper that comes in your page protectors, and the center is a layer of cereal boxes or any other type of box I could get my hands on). The cereal box idea came from my friend Heather Bares, she makes a lot of her own little books that way. Thanks, Heather

The only things that were not cut on the Cricut are the rainbows(done with my coluzzle), the clouds (sizzix), and the moon (free handed). I didn't show the backs of each bear, but that is where I put the pictures from her party and the embellishments. Also each bears name is right at the bottom of his tummy. I used the Cricut DS to weld the letters together. I really enjoyed making this book and this is something Emily will have for years to come.

Gift Card Holders

Hi Everyone,

I haven't been doing a whole lot of scrapbooking lately. I have been trying to organize my office/scrapbook/sewing/computer room. Needless to say its a job. There is just to much stuff in this small room. But, I will make do. I will post some pictures of things that I did a while back. In this first one I took the idea from Joleen at TM. She had made a gift card holder and it was on the website. It could not have happened at a better time. I had alot of gift cards I was giving for Christmas, so with a bunch of scraps and some embellishments I made these gift card holders for my family. Hope you enjoy. Lisa

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post on my new blog. I hope it turns out OK. As many of you know I am not very savvy when it comes to computers, but I am learning. I am soooo excited about being on the Design Team for Treasured Memories. We are having our first meeting tonight and I can hardly wait. It will be nice to get together and be able to challenge ourselves. I know we will learn lots of really cool thing this year, Melissa is a FABULOUS teacher. I know she will make us think Outside the Box. Because of her and Wendy's classes this weekend, I have finished all my snow pictures. I will try and post the pictures of the projects. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and I hope I get better at this blog thing.
