One more...

Okay, so I've been using my free time and making layouts from our trip to Chicago last year. Having all those kits motivates me to finish this project.This photo of me at the art museum didn't come out too well but I wanted to remember that moment when this photo was taken. We were actually lost and walking in circles trying to find Michigan Ave. and somehow we ended up in this museum.
Here's a close up of the journaling except I cut part of it off when I took the photo. I used more Cosmo Cricket paper and journaling tags. The red felt lace is by Queen & Co. I have another layout to post tomorrow so check back. Thanks for stopping by!

Fun kind of day

Thanks to everyone who came to the make-it take-it at my husband's store today! Tons of fun and great to see everyone again. And, I totally forgot to take pictures of the 2 cards we made. Shame on me.Here is a photo of one of the layouts that I made yesterday. I would post 2 of them but it takes me forever just to do a post with photos.
Here's a close up of the journaling but you probably can't even read it. Lol
This layout took me awhile to finish because I had the bright idea of threading each button. Which took me longer since threading a needle takes me double the time than like when I was younger.
Deets on the layout:
Cosmo Cricket papers and journaling card, Bazzill scallop paper, buttons, chipboard pieces, Elle's Studio date tag, Hero bling, and flower.
Next month I will be at Ben Franklin Crafts Pearl City doing a make-it take-it for their paper party. I'll update later with the date and time.
Thanks for stopping by and I'll post the other layout tomorrow.

A new Sizzix sample

I had to quickly make a sample of the new XL french fry box from Sizzix for my husband so people can see the size of the project after it's cut. This was fun to make and quite easy too. And I think it went faster than normal since I already had the images stamped and colored.
Here's the deets:
Sizzix XL french fry die, Spellbinders shapeabilities tag set, sm classic circle, Dandelion stamps, Hero Arts bling, red stickles, Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, Bazzill cs and ribbon.
Have a great weekend!

Scrappin' away

Ok, so I said I missed doing this and I really did. I made this layout yesterday and worked on 2 more today. I'll post those later.
I know the photo isn't that great, but my scanner doesn't work so I have to take these photos with my camera.
At least this is making me use my kits up.
The 2nd photo is a close up of the flower and heart.

Here's the deets:

Bazzill cs, Autum Leaves paper, Sizzlit months set, Making Memories flowers, Autumn Leaves buttons, FW date stamp, Hero Arts clear stamp, Heidi Swapp chipboard and zig zaggy scissors.
Today was such a hot day in my craft room that I must of sweat out all the junk in my system.
So glad tomorrow is Saturday and I'll be doing a make-it take-it at my husband's store. It's always fun to be around other ladies who enjoy this hobby as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by!

Missing this...

Scrapping. It's been way too long since I worked on any pages. My kits are piling up and I need to use them since I pay for them every month. This is the best way to go. Everything you need is in the kit except the glue and scissors. It's a lot of fun once you get started.
I did this yesterday and it only took me like less than 20 minutes between phone calls. I'm still taking it easy.

Heres the deets on the layout: Jenni Bowlin papers & chipboard, American Craft thickers, Heidi Swapp felt flower, Prima lace border and Hero Arts bling.
Today I started on another layout and finished it. Hopefully, I can keep this up and finish our trip photos from Chicago last year.
Thanks for stopping by and if you're coming to the make-it take-it on Saturday, I will see you then.

The scoop...

Hey, I ended up picking 3 winners instead of 1. So Jodi, Cheryl and Jenine, email me your addresses so I can get the stamps in the mail to you. Congrats ladies!!!
I need to really start cleaning out my stuff since I no longer have space to move in my craft room. And I'm also one of those collector type people who shop and never use the things I buy. I will be randomly picking people who leave comments on this blog from now on to send stuff to.
I know I haven't been posting on a regular basis like I should be but as most of you know, I also post for my husband's store blog too.
I'll be on a little break here since I'm quite ill right now. I'm not sick with the flu or anything but in a lot of pain.
Also, if you live on the Big Island, I will be doing a couple Sizzix make-it take-its at the Hilo Ben Franklin store this Saturday, July 19th. Stop by and say hello.

I'm still here...

I've been working on several different projects these past couple weeks. Since I have to tape 2 shows for Ben Franklin Crafts later this week, I had to come up with a bunch of samples. I'll post them later when the shows air.
And I guess you could say I was on a roll, so I made a bunch of cards using Jean's new stamps.
These were fun to play with but a lot more coloring than I'm normally used to.
Today was such a hot and humid day and I had planned to spend most of the day working on orders but I ended up hopping in my car and driving to Starbucks just to get some a/c and cool off.

Thanks for stopping by and since I've got some extra stamp sets, leave me a comment about where you like to shop and what you like to shop for. I'll pick a winner in a few days.
