For Sticker Lovers!

We're now carrying a larger selection of Jolee's Boutique for those of you who are sticker fans. Come check out the newest Halloween & Christmas stickers, as well as lots of others!

Just Fab.

This weekend was the first weekend I travelled with my Clip-It-Up. Well Hot Damn! It was easy as pie. Becuase of this, I used up some OLD OLD stuff that I have had for like, 5 years. The cool thing about the Clip-It-Up is that you can see all of your embellishments. Now if only they could figure out how to do the same thing for patterned paper! I am glad I splurged on this. I love it.

I had a great weekend scrapbooking and laughing (as Kim modelled this Clip-It-Up Storage bag) at the Blairmore retreat that our store set up at. There's nothing better than good eats, great gals (Kim, Tara, Rhea, Christy, Kaly & Kasey!) and lots of layouts (I did 21!). If you haven't have any quality "me time" in a while, our next crop is Saturday, October 25th. Hope to see you there!

Fancy That!

I am in love with Fancy Pants. In love. (For the moment). And because I am suppose to be working on my Christmas album, this Happy Holidays paper couldn't come at a better time. I love it. I love their paper, their cie-cuts and of course their overlays. Did I mention this paper is double-sided? Love it.

Um, adorable.

So, these are the funniest things I have seen in a while. I love them. Right? Adorable. So, I am totally going to take a close-up of miles and use them on a layout. Is it just me? These rock right?

Love, love, love it.

The new Christmas line from BoBunny Believe is here. It's so pretty. So pretty. Pictured above are the cut outs, but if you're totally a lazy scapbooker (like me) you'll love the stickers that match the double-sided paper. Beautiful, non?

Progress Report

I'm having FUN scrapbooking today. Fun. It's refreshing. And I am pulling out all the stops. The first things I went for today was my collection of rarely used Paint Dabbers from Ranger. I'd forgotten how much I love these things. Easy to use, no mess. Doesn't get any better that this.

This is not my regular scrapbooking style. Maybe thats why its so fun. It was simple & random. And for once, I didn't have to pre-plan it. I just built it as I went. I like it. Why don't I do this more often?

Materials: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Paint: Ranger; Buttons: My Minds Eye & Autumn Leaves; Patterned Paper: K&Co.; Pen: EK Success Zig Writer; Other: Hemp & pebeo 3d puff paint

Aren't these funny pictures? I took them one afternoon while we were hanging out in bed (one of my favourite things to do). All of these diffrerent moods were captured in a matter of minutes. He cracks me up. I finally used some of the Love Elsie stuff from ki Memories. It's hard to use. Her style belongs in her books, not mine. I also did some flocking (I am getting addicted to flocking...) on the heart. And more puff paint. I am just a multi-media gal today!

Materials: Patterned & Fabric Paper: ki Memories & making memories; Die Cut Strips: Doodlebug; Paint: Heidi Swapp; Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts; Ghost Heart: Heidi Swapp; Flocking: Doodlebug; Staples: making memories; Pen: EK Success Zig Writer; Other: pebeo 3d puff paint


Today didn't start off that great.
The dog got into the garbage. Twice. We couldn't open the store today because there was a mountain of concrete in front of the door. And on my way back from Starbucks there was a teenager lying on the ground unconscious. I called 911. All that before 11am.
Then I heard that a family friend who has Breast Cancer is not doing well.
I just felt crappy.
Luckily, I knew how to cure my blues.

Listen to a little Oasis. Loud.
Drink a grape slurpee. Fast, but not too fast.

Lock myself away & Scrapbook. Long & Hard.
I've been at it since 2:30. And I'm starting to feel better.

Buying Time.

There are some lessons I've learned since becoming a mom that are invaluable.
My favourite so far is this:
You CAN buy time to scrapbook.
It costs $9.99

Miles loves this DVD (a gift from Christy & Cindy! Thanks!). In fact, it was me who got sick of it. So I went and bought a different Baby Einstein DVD and we're back in business! Go ahead, Judge me, but the 30minutes that I get from plunking Miles down to "watch TV" allow me to scrapbook & keep me sane. And sanity is a good thing.

Just thought I'd share....

We went to Ethel Tucker Park today to take a family picture. I think it turned out pretty well. I am excited to get scrapbooking...
