Imaginations at Work


I love this picture of the kiddos hard at 'work'...it is always fun to see them with their brows all scrunched up, just enjoying the creative process. Interesting sidenote- I have them all completely addicted to my scrapbboking supplies. They just get totally excited when they see me bring down one of my 'toys' for them to play with, lol.

This layout uses the Fancy Pants All Fall Collection. If you are looking for the latest Fancy goodness, be sure to head on over to Scrapbook Express!

If you haven't checked out the Idea File part of the magazine- you really need to. Imagine an entire section of a magazine, articles upon articles every month, that give you tips on how to use your products better, or how to improve your crafting. I love it!!

How bout a yummy post, for today? doen't this one just scream summer? Definitely needed that, today- I am so tired of grey skies, lol! This shaped card was a blast to make...I used Making Memories Garden Party for the rind, and a fun pink card for the inner. A little versamark pen added some needed shading for this- and we have a fun greeting!

Plane 'Ol Hi!

Today, I have a fun airplane card to share with you. I love the felt added to this for the cloud. What makes this fun, though, is the paper piecing.

I found this jet image as a color page on the web. Scaled it to 20% of normal size and printed it 3 times: Once on the gear paper from Cogsmo Cricket, once on the Red paper from Cogsmo, and once on regular white card. Now, a simple matter of cutting the pieces apart, assembling jigsaw style, and I have a fun, multi dimensional card! I would encourage all of you to go looking for 'digital stamps' in the thousands of free color pages available on the net. For more on hybrid card making, check out the March issue of Scrapbook News and Review coming out March 21st. We have an entire article of ideas in the card section!!

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

The kids love passing out Valentine's to their friends during our Valentine's Party. This year, even the baby got to pass out his...much to the amusement of the older kids!

This paper line is Splendid by Fancy Pants...it is perfect for Valentines, too! I love the whimsical nature and great colors! (And Scrapbook Express has it in stock, too)

100 Days

Every year, my kids count down the school days until we get to 100. Then we have a 100 days party...where we count to 100 for everything...all...day....long! 100 snacks in each baggie. 100 diecuts on our poster. 100 jumps at excersise time. You get the idea.

This Bo Bunny paper was perfect for this, though. Looking for it? Scrapbook Express has it in stock.

PS- This year one of the kids had the brilliant idea to count back from a 100. So, watch for our 'un-100' day party, sometime this summer, lol!

How about a few places to find deals? I love bargain hunting, and window shopping, too. My latest obsession is stalking Deal of the Day sites. These are fun- 1 deal, one day...amazing prices. The fun is in never knowing what they will have. Here are a couple of scrapping ones that I have found. Have fun!!
