|Yesterday was a good day! I actually scrapbooked for a while…and I decided to try out the Sunday Sketch from Studio Calico. You can see their sketch below…and then my version…|
|This is my son after getting his temps. I used some random keys for the masking and I think the vintage cards are from October Afternoon.|
|Next, I had a picture that I love of our dog, Chewy, waiting for his pancakes. My husband started a weekly tradition of Pancake Saturdays….hubby gets up and makes pancakes and bacon, while I make the coffee…we all look forward to Saturday mornings, the 3 of us + Chewy….|
|For the masking, I used some hearts that I had cut out with my Cricut.|
|…Most of the supplies used came from Studio Calico monthly kits…and I love the fabric Thickers!|
|Finally, I had a picture that I took of my new glasses. On the day that I turned 40, I went to my first eye-exam and ended up needing bifocul reading glasses. Welcome to the 40’s, lol.
For this layout, I challenged myself to simply grab random supplies and use it.
|The brown strips I bought a few years ago and it has sat in my stash forever.
Below it I used a polka-dot tape, from the $1.99 bin at Archivers.
|The “details”, I had cut out using my Cricut.
So, that’s all. Feels good to have scrapped some layouts, using supplies on hand.
Today’s the last day of summer break. Where did Summer go?

|While I was scrapping,
some strange things occurred.
|Amongst my supplies,
some stuffed toys soon appeared.
|Things were licked,|
|and were sniffed,|
|and were jostled about.|
|Tossed this way & that way,|
|and then soon abandoned….
…all while I was scrapping…
It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Sorry about that.
Anyways, with Easter on the way, I wanted to post a quick tutorial!
Altered Egg Box
That’s it!! Such a quick, easy project, that looks fantastic!!!
What are you making for Easter?
|I had bought some Vera Bradley products as gifts recently, and had received the receipts in an extra thick envelope. Of course, being the scrapper that I am, I kept the envelope, thinking it would be perfect for a future project.
So, for my mom’s birthday, I altered the envelope and made a card to go inside.
|I made the card below using the new Lush line from My Mind’s Eye…..I love the vintage feel of the paper and embellishments! The turquoise (blue) and the browns are my favorite!!!
The beautiful brown flower was handmade by my MIL!!
|I made these ATCs for a “Stash Buster ATC Swap” over on sistv.com
The challenge was to choose 5 items from the list and use up some of your scrapbook stash. I chose: buttons, bling, photo corners, pattern paper (bird/cloud) and flowers. It didn’t really put a dent in my stash, but it was alot of fun to make.
I love this stamp set….I got it for my birthday from papertreyink.com
Thanks for stopping by!
|Well, I survived my 40th birthday! Whew!
It was quite the birthday!!!
I received some new stamp sets from PapertreyInk.com, so I’ve been working on some cards.
For these few cards, I used this set.
|A good friend of mine had to say good-bye to her dog a few days ago. Her dog was a loyal furry friend and will be greatly missed. I made the card below for her, using another new set from papertreyink.
That’s all for today. Just a quick post.
Time to refill my coffee cup.
