Week 10 & the secret life of pets…

Hello there.

Just popping by quickly to share my week 10 layout for the 52 Favourites challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.  I combined it with their “Secret Life of Pets” challenge.

I’m supposed to be going scrapbooking all day tomorrow with my girls, however, I woke up this morning with a cold! 😦 I’m hoping to get a good nights sleep and I’ll feel better tomorrow and not worse.

Fingers crossed!

Happy scrapping!

Week 9…

Hello there.

I’m just popping in to share my week 9 layout for the “52 Favourites” challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.

I used papers from the Carta Bella “Our House” collection I purchased from the Paper Issues store.

The title “Sweet” is from my Jillibean Soup foam stickers I purchased a while ago.  They are a part of the Garden Harvest collection.

I was looking for little things to add as embellishments and pulled out my old heart punch from Epiphany Crafts.  Since I used some heart paper, I thought I would punch out a few hearts to add to the page.  In the end, I didn’t really care for the hearts I punched out, but the instead used the strip of paper I punched the hearts from! 😀

A few stickers, some enamel dots and roughed up paper edges and the layout was done!

My husband has to work tonight, so I plan on doing some more scrapbooking! I’m planning to work on my next design team assignment.

Happy scrapping!

Hello there.

This week is week 8 of the “52 Favourites” challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.

My favourite thing for this week was having my new kitchen drawer pulls put on! 😀

My 2nd order…

Hi there!

My second scrapbook order came in today! YAY!!

I bought all this gorgeous stuff from Paper Issues.  Some Photo Play “Wild Love”, Carta Bella “Our House” and Crate Paper “La La Love”.

With all my new stuff, I have no idea what I’m going to use for this weeks “52 Favourites” challenge.  I might have to participate in another challenge just so I can dig into ALL my new goodies! LOL!

It’s a super snowy day today and I would love to be scrapbooking, but I have a birthday present I’m knitting for a friend that has to get done, so today, knitting it is!!

If you’ve never checked out the Paper Issues store, have a look,  They carry the newest stuff all the time!!

A little shopping…

Hello everyone!

I was thinking last week, if I’m participating in a challenge that requires me to scrapbook 1 layout a week, I’d better buy some new stuff!! 😉

So, last Thursday night while my husband and son went to the movies, I ordered some goodies from Paper Issues. This is what happens when you leave me alone!

But then a couple of days ago, along comes a coupon in my inbox for 15% off any purchase at Scrapbook Nerd! Well, I’m not one to let a coupon go to waste! LOL! So I placed an order with them too!

Now I’m sitting here impatiently waiting on 2 orders to come in.  I’ve been scrapbooking quite a bit lately trying to use up my old stash because I need to make room for all the  new things coming in.

Here are a couple of layouts I’ve completed using up my older stash:DSCN8374I used up the last of my Simple Stories “Cabin Fever” collection on this layout.  The colours of these papers worked perfectly for this photo.DSCN8365And for this layout, I used up the last of my Crate Paper “Boys Rule” collection which I think came out about 5 years ago!

I was lucky to be able to come home from work early today so I’m going to go and start on another page for the “52 Favourites” challenge.  Remember, you can join in the challenge at any time! It’s really fun…and challenging!

Happy scrapping!
