Headwaters Arts Society Exhibition

The Art Exhibition was a hit! We were so happy with all the people who came out and the art at the show was awesome! Who knew such a small town would be host to such incedible talent? I was really honoured to have lots of visitors checking out my table. I had visions of people chasing me out of the hall, calling "fraud!", but people were very complimentary. And I even sold a few cards! All the cards I posted in last weeks post are gone. ;) It was a really great day and we'll be doing it again in the near future.

Here's a page I did for the show. I felt like I wanted something new for the show that no one had seen. Julia took the photo (okay, I set up the camera on the tripod and she just had to push the shutter, but she still took the photo.) LOL!

Papers: Crate Paper, Stickers: Crate Paper, Alphas: Prima Marketing, Pink Paislee, Miscellaneous: Rhinestones

And here's another page I did a while ago. It's a cellphone photo that Julia's friend took and posted on Facebook. I stole it, ummm, I mean I saved it from her account and printed it. It's a little blurry, but I think it looks pretty cool, anyway.

Papers: Bo Bunny, Crate Paper, Bazzil Basics; Alphas: Basic Grey; Ribbon: Bo Bunny; Stickers: Bo Bunny, Simple Stories; Punches: Fiskars, EK Success, Martha Stewart; Button: Making Memories; Rhinestones.

Cards for Sale!

I've been madly making cards the last few days in preparation for the Canal Flats Arts Society Exhibition that is happening on Saturday. For any locals reading this, it's at the Civic Centre from 10:00am to 4:00pm and admission is free. I'm very honoured to be included in this talented group of artists. Who knew we had so much talent in this town!

Since most of the artists are going to have a few works for sale, I thought I would sell some of my left over Christmas cards from previous years. But, then I started thinking some people might want a birthday card, so I made a few of those, too.

So, here they are:

This one's my favourite! It had all kinds of versions until I finally settled on this one.

 Papers: Bazzill Basics, Echo Park and Crate Paper; Punches: Martha Stewart, Fiskars EK Success; Diecut: Making Memories; Sticker: My Mind's Eye; Stamp: Scraptivity/Gelatins;  Flowers:Prima Marketing; Miscellaneous: Rhinestones, Distres Inks, Glimmer Mists

Here's one that I scraplifted from myself. ;) I made a card similar to this for Julia a couple of years ago and it is sitting on my bulletin board. I've lifted this version before to give away and how funny that each time I make it, in the end they all look a little bit different.

 Papers: Bazzill Basics, Bo Bunny; Die Cuts: K&Company, Cuttlebug, Tim Holtz; Stamp: Stampin Up!, Punch: EK Success; Miscellaneous: Rhinestones, Distress Inks, Ribbon.

And then I needed a really quick and simple one and came across this card from Kristina Werner. It was perfect for mass production!

Papers: Bazzill Basics, Crate Paper; Stamps: Scraptivity, Punch: Martha Stewart, McGill

A la Carte

I haven't really been scrapping much this week. I've been working on my Christmas cards, instead. I think they look lovely, but of course I can't show them here. My mom is reading this blog! ;) Once I send them out, I'll try to remember to post a photo. I don't usually take photos of my cards, but I really should do that so that I can remember what I've done. I don't stockpile any cards.... just make what I need (usually the night before I need to send it!)

Anyway, here are a couple of pages I did a few weeks ago. Again, I'm using some old stash, but I really like the papers for these pages. I cut the lanterns using my Cricut & SCAL and a file from Lettering Delights. I cut the shapes from chipboard and then from the patterned paper. They look very cool in real life.

Papers: 7Gypsies; Alpha Stickers: American Crafts Thickers, Pink Paislee; Label Sticker: My Mind's Eye; Miscellaneous Gems

To match the page above, I created this page. It's about how after we left the restaurant, Nick had us stop at the snack bar to eat two orders of hot dogs and fries. SCARY!!

 Papers: 7Gypsies, Bazzill Basics; Alpha Stickers: Simple Stories, October Afternoon, Karen Russell, Tim Holtz, Basic Grey; Stickers & Diecuts: Crate Paper; Miscellaneous: Fiskars Punch, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Making Memories Brads

Busy, busy, busy!

Oh my goodness! I had no idea I hadn't updated my blog since September 30th! I knew it had been a while, but not a whole month! Yikes!

But, it's been a bit crazy here the last month or so. I have been working on a couple assignments that I can't share, yet. And when I'm not working on that, I'm trying to get some work done for the the Canal Flats Arts Council Exhibit on November 26th. I was honoured to be invited to show some of my work there so I want to make sure I have everything in tip top shape to be displayed. Oh and in between the scrapping stuff, I have work, kids, laundry, hockey.... you know how it is.

Anyway, here is my completed album for Shimelle Laine's "Learn Something New Every Day" class that I participated in during the month of September. It was a fun course and I actually finished it in early October which is a record for me. (I tend to start these things but don't always finish. That'll just be our little secret.)

I made the album cover out of chipboard that I cut to match Ranger Craft Tags and I distress inked it. Then I used rub-ons and stickers to embellish it. I wanted to keep the album pretty simple since I don't always have time every day to scrap, so I pre-inked the tags (pages) and chose 7 Gypsies journaling blocks for every page. I also printed out the dates on a sheet of cardstock and punched them out with a Martha Stewart punch and used my Dymo labeller to make the titles.

Rub-ons: Prima Marketing Inc, Glitz Design; Alpha Stickers: Crate Paper, Making Memories, Webster's Pages, Pink Paislee; Stamps: Close to My Heart; Miscellaneous: Tim Holtz idea-ology tag, unknown ribbons

Paper: 7Gypsies; Diecuts: Maya Road and Tim Holtz Grungeboard

Paper: Unknown patterned paper & watercolour paper; Stamp: Stampin Up; Ink: Distress Ink by Ranger

Ribbon: Prima Marketing Inc; Paper: Simple Stories; Punch: Martha Stewart; Miscellaneous Rhinestones

Paper: 7 Gypsies, Bo Bunny, Simple Stories, Crate Paper; Flower: Prima Marketing Inc; Punch: Martha Stewart; Miscellaneous Rhinestone 

Those are just some of my favourite pages from the album. I won't bore you with it all. I really enjoyed the process of making something every day. It kept my creativity flowing even if I didn't feel like creating. It got me thinking that maybe I should start an art journal!

If you are in the Canal Flats area, come check out the Arts Council Exhibit on November 26th. There will be lots of local artists showcasing their work.

My Favorite Spot To Be

Happy Friday!

Here's a quick and easy page, using up a bunch of scraps, some old Fancy Pants paper and my new Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch. I know this punch has been out for quite a while, but he is new to me. This could be the start of a beautiful friendship!

Remember me?

So, I took a bit of a hiatus from my blog the last few weeks. First I was on holidays, then I worked full-time for the last two.  My hat is off to you full-time work outside the home moms.  By the time I got the kids organized for school, the odd load of laundry done, and the odd workout in, it would be 8 or 9 at night before I would sit at my scrapping desk. I'd move a few pieces of paper around for a few minutes and then discouraged, head for bed. That certainly didn't leave much time or incentive for blogging.

Anyway, I managed to get a few pages made, but they're certainly not my best work.  Well except for the one of Brian. I do like that one. :)  But, that's okay. They're scrapbooked and I'm that much closer to having this vacation album completed. 

So, without any more excuses, here is what I've been working on the last few weeks.

Paper: Simple Stories, Fancy Pants, Bazzil Basics; Diecuts & Chipboard: Simple Stories, Bo Bunny, Crate Paper; Rub-ons: American Crafts; Marah Johnson; Title: October Afternoon, Simple Stories, Pink Paislee, Cricut & SCAL; Miscellaneous: Distress Ink, Tattered Angels Spray, EK Success Border Punch, Photo Corners

As I've mentioned, I am trying to use up some really old stash.  And the rub-ons below certainly qualify as old.  They are SEI from a Scraptivity kit dated April 2006.  They were a bit difficult to rub on because of their age... they are a bit cracked. But I think they matched nicely with the distressed papers from My Mind's Eye. And I used pretty much the whole sheet, so that made me very happy.

Paper: My Mind's Eye; Rub-ons & Stickers: My Minds Eye, SEI; Chipboard: Grungeboard, Cricut; Diecuts: Simple Stories; Alpha Stickers: My Mind's Eye & October Afternoon

And last but not least is a page idea from Shimelle Laine's 4x6 Photo Love video on Two Peas in a Bucket. At Xplor, we were scammed.... I mean we purchased..... the thumbdrive with all the automatic photos that they take throughout the park.  It was crazy expensive, but Brian really wanted the photos (see layout above LOL!). Anyway, I had a bunch of these photos from the Lazy River, and Shimelle's sketch fit perfectly for them. It's made up of two page protectors sewn together, to house 8 photos. But, I was able to squeeze in eleven!   Here it is closed:

Paper: My Mind's Eye, Echo Park, Crate Paper, Bazzil Basics; Stickers, October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye, EK Success. Sassafrass Lass; Stamps: Studio AE, Tin Box for Scraptivity, MME;  Brads: Karen Foster, Making Memories; Title: Cricut and SCAL; Miscellaneous: Gelatins Embossing Powder, Corner Rounder, Stapler

And here it is opened:

The journaling reads:

Front Page: The brochure said "Row a raft with your own hands along crystal clear water with an average terperature of 72 degrees F. On this matchless 601 yd long adventure, you will go on a raft through fascinating grottoes of the Xplor's subterranean world."

Next Page: What it should have said. "Row a plastic raft with plastic paddles, slipped over your hands, that make it virtually impossible to control. Try to avoid people who have no idea how to row a boat and are spinnin in a circle, blocking the tunnels and being stuck in a traffic jam for 15-20 minutes. Have your photo taken by the automatic cameras at the most frustrating moments so that it looks like your family was fighting and miserable."

A reminder to those who are new to blogging, just click on the photo and a new window will open with a larger photo.

So, that's all I've done in the last little bit. Hopefully, I won't let 3 weeks go by before updating the blog. But I can't make any promises.  ;)

Explore Class Layouts

The Explore class presented by Shimelle Laine has come to a close. It was an awesome four week class and I did learn a lot.  I really enjoyed how Shimelle's prompts had us delve into our own scrapbooking styles and personalities. I think that I know my own personal style now and how to get my mojo working. I enjoyed the class so much that I have registered for her new class, Learn Something New Everyday. I'm sure you'll be seeing some of my creations once the class begins, September 1st.  In the meantime, here are four pages we did as a final project.

Our assignment was to take sketches and create four simple layouts that were pretty much finished.  That was stage A. They could go in the albums as is, or we could finish them further with more embellishments, title or journaling to take them to stage B. This should have been a difficult assignment for me, as I am a little anal and can never move on to a new layout until the first one is finished. But, I was surprised at how freeing it was to not have to consider a page "done". I could work on a page until the ideas for that one dried up, skip to the next one, then come back to the first one when an idea hit me. And I was very surprised how quickly I managed to get four pages done. Usually, it takes me a month to get that many pages done! I'm going to try to remember this technique the next time I take a scrappy weekend for myself. I may just break my record of 6 pages in three days. LOL!

Papers: Fancy Pants Design; Rub-ons: Fancy Pants Design; Alphas: Karen Foster & DCWV; Die  cut: Cricut & SCAL

Papers: Fancy Pants Design, Bazzill Basics; Rub-on: Marah Johnson; Journaling Card: 7 Gypsies & Making Memories; Chipboard: Bo Bunny; Flowers: Prima; Buttons: Making Memories; Alphas: Cricut & Crate Paper; Miscellaneous: brads, floss, MM Magnetic stamp

Signature Accent Challege

And here is my final challenge for Shimelle's weekend crop. The challenge was to create a layout using our "signature" embellishments. So, I used all of my go to embellies on this page... butterflies, flowers, glitter, gems and something cut with the Cricut.  I use at least one of these on every layout I create.

The title was cut with a Kerri Bradford SVG file.  I LOVE it!!  It cut beautifully.  Watch for them.  They may become my new go to embellishment!

Paper: Simple Storiess; Butterflies: Tim Holtz Grungeboard; Transparencies: My Little Yellow Bicycle; Flowers and Gems: Dollar Store; Stickers: Simple Stories; Miscellaneous: Distress Inks, Stickles

You can find Shimelle's challenge, here.

Thanks for looking!


Chop Up Your Paper Challenge

Still following along with Shimelle's class, our challenge was to chop up our paper to use as embellishments.  I was having a difficult time finding paper to match these photos (so much pink and red), but then I came upon some old Basic Grey in my stash and it had lots of pink and red in it, too.  Infuse was one of those BG lines that I just had to buy and hardly used.  The three inch stack of BG paper is a sad reminder that I do this all the time.  lol!  I cut the circles from a piece of cardstock and embellished them with flowers, buttons and rhinestones.

Papers: Basic Grey; Flowers: Prima; Buttons: Making Memories; Letter Stickers: Simple Stories, Making Memories, Echo Park; Chipboard: Pink Cactus; Miscellaneous: gems, pearls, Distress Inks, Glossy Accents.

You can find Shimelle's challenge on her blog.

Starting Point Challenge

I've been scrapping up a storm here in the last few days, following along with Shimelle Laine's weekend crop.  Here is my version of her Starting Point Challenge which you can find here

Papers, stickers and borders: Crate Paper; silk flower: Maya Road; letter stickers: Narratives by Karen Russell: miscellaneous Glimmer Mist, Martha Stewart Stamp and punch, unknown gems and pearls.

My page doesn't look as funky as Shimelle's, but I still like the results of mine.

Our Future Adventures

This week's layout is one from Shimelle Laine's Explore class.  We had to start with 9 circle embellishments  placed in a grid and create a layout depicting adventure. This photo was taken at Xcaret in Cancun and while we were at the sign post, we talked about all the places we'd like to visit, someday. We do this on every trip we take... plan for the next one.

It's funny that as I write this blog post, I feel like that should be my journaling, so I may have to add some hidden journaling somewhere on the page to add this information.  *sigh*  I do this a lot.  Once I've uploaded a page, I see something I'd like to change, add or tweak.

I cut the circles using my beloved Coluzzle.  My last blade is starting to get dull.  I don't know what I'm going to do when I can't find a replacement.  Then I stacked inked circles on top of each other.  Some of the circles are chipboard pieces from Close to My Heart.  They come in white with embossed images and are meant to be inked to match your layout. I used Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The red flowers are very old Prima chipboard buttons. I removed the glossy print paper from the top with a craft knife and then sprayed them with Glimmer Mist (Candy Apple Red).

Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants Designs, October Afternoon - Stickers: Tim Holtz- Fabric & Chipboard Flowers; Prima - Letter Stickers; October Afternoon, Pink Paislee, Cricut - Stamps; Close to My Heart - Chipboard shapes; Close to My Heart - Miscellaneous Buttons, Distress Ink, Glossy Accents, Glimmer Mist and threads

A Fetching Fella

I haven't done much real scrapbooking lately.  Instead, I'm immersed in Shimelle Laine's Explore class. It's a 4 week class on not only creating travel scrapbooks with a new perspective, but also on how to bring that perspective to home. Best $16 US I've ever spent!!!  It's really making me think about my life and  how I want to scrapbook more about the "everyday" things.  I'll post my mini book from the class when it's done.

I was sitting on the fence about taking the class, since summer is a pretty busy time for me, but then I saw this video by Shimelle.  It brought tears to my eyes and goosebumps on my arms. I signed up for the class 5 minutes later. If you are a scrapbooker, you have to check it out here: Shimelle's Video on Ali's Blog . If you aren't a scrapbooker, then you still need to watch it as it explains why I scrapbook better than I ever could.

As for this week's layout, I'm still keeping my mandate to use up my old stash.  Here is some really old paper from a Scraptivity kit.  I loved the paper then, and I really think it works well for these photos.  It's very simple and it went together really quickly.  Gotta love THAT!

Papers; Bazzill Basics and Rouge De Garance, alpha stickers; Pink Paislee,
pen; Sharpie,  Acrylic Stamp, American Crafts, Rub-on; Pink Paislee

I still have two sheets of Rouge De Garance in my stash.  I may just have to pull them out soon!

I haven't forgotten!

My apologies for neglecting my blog.  Between painting Nick's bedroom and working full-time for holiday relief, I haven't had much time to post.  But, I have had time to scrap a little bit!

I've been a scrapbooker for a long time.  I've seen trends come and go and then come back again. So, I very rarely get really excited about a new paper product line. And the same was true about Simple Stories.  I saw it on-line and thought "meh". Then a couple weeks ago, I stopped at my local scrapbook store, Paper Blossom and they had the Destinations line. I thought it might work with my Xcaret photos, so I picked some up.

Oh my goodness, I love it! As I've mentioned before, I'm a very slow scrapper. But, I managed to scrap these two layouts in two days.  And look how many photos are on these two pages...seventeen!!

All the papers and embellishments are so easy to work with. I cut out some elements from the journaling cards and was able to use the scraps in another way. The frugal scrapper in me LOVES that!

Papers- Simple Stories, Embellishments - Simple Stories, 7 Gypsies and Making Memories

The Sea Turtles at Akumal Bay

I haven't made a page that I've loved so much for a very long time.  And I 'm pretty happy about that because this story was the highlight of our trip.  Usually, when I try to scrap pages that mean a lot to me, I struggle with the layout and the journaling and I'm never happy with the end result.  But this page was different. Everything just fell into place and I got it finished in just two or three hours.  Now, you speedy scrappers will gasp at that.  But, I am a very sllloooowww scrapper so getting a page done in that amount of time is a huge accomplishment!

I didn't take this photo, as we did not have an underwater camera with us, this day.  I *borrowed* it from the TripAdvisor photo gallery.  This particular turtle is living in Akumal Bay and this is exactly how I remember them.

Papers and embellishments are Bo Bunny, Rub-on is Fancy Pants, Pink Paislee alpha, painted in acrylic paint, journaling printed on transparency, jute detail

The journaling reads:
Just a short $12 taxi ride away from the resort is Akumal Bay.  This public beach is home to many loggerhead sea turltes.  We brought our own snorkel gear and set out to find some turtles.  It took us a while to see anything, but suddenly, there as a big sea turtle, right in front of us.  We were so close to it that we could see its' tongue grabbing the sea grass to chew on.  We floated and watched it for quite some time.  Then the turtle slowly swam up to the surface of the water, spit out a mouthful of water, took in a breath of air and then slowly swam back down to start eating again.  It was amazing! We found about a dozen turtles that afternoon.  Some were huge!! None of them seemed to be too concerned with us.  They just went about their business eating, swimming and getting some air.  What a spectacular way to spend the afternoon!

Bikini Brigade

In honour of my baby girl getting her first summer job, I thought I'd post this layout of her.  Julia got a job at an ice cream shop making cones and sundaes.  She got the job on her own... not knowing someone who knew someone.  She brought in her resume and was hired.  I'm very proud of her.

Papers: Fancy Pants & Bazzill Basics, Rubons: Making Memories, Fancy Pants, Clear Embellishments and Stickers: Fancy Pants, Journaling Cards: Fancy Pants and Crate Paper, Ribbon: Basic Grey

This page is made with some more older stock mixed in with newer.  I've had that clear photo frame for a couple years.  I know I've said it before but this is why I love Fancy Pants supplies.  I've mixed four different releases on one page and it all works together.  LOVE that!

Thanks for looking!

New look and a new page!

I changed up the blog a little bit. Like it?  I prefer the layout of this better and it seems to be more my style.  I wish I had more computer geekness and could create my own, but I lack skill and time.  So, I downloaded a free template and that will have to do for now.  I still hate the name of the blog, but I can't think of anything better.  If anyone has any great ideas, please pass them along.

Here is a page I did a couple weeks ago, but it sat on my desk to simmer.  I just wanted to see if it was finished.  I think it is.  LOL!

Papers are Fancy Pants, chipboard letters are Basic Grey, Rub-ons Basic Grey, Kaisercraft and Fancy Pants, stamps are Tin Box Creations (Scraptivity!) and the clouds are cut with Cricut (Going Places).

Thanks for looking!

They can't all be masterpieces!!

I started this layout last week, and finished it this afternoon. I liked it well enough.  I used some really, really old EK Success vellum and I thought it looked great with the tan background and the colours from my photos. But then I said to myself, "Self, I think this page needs a little Glimmer Mist!" And that's when I got a little crazy with the Glimmer Mist and a paintbrush. I don't mind it on the paper, but there is too much on the photos.  ACK!  Oh, well.  It is going in the album as is.

Cardstock is Coredinations and DCWV, Vellum is EK Success, title cut with SCAL and Cricut, Making Memories alphas, chipboard elements are Paper House Productions, stamps, Stampendous, unknown brads, Magenta mesh and of couse, Glimmer Mist in Riptide.

Oh, who am I kidding?  I'll probably just re-print the photos.  ;)

Butterfly Hunt

When I started scrapbooking this vacation album, I bought the new Fancy Pants Beach Bum and Beach Babe kits.  I adore Fancy Pants stuff!  But, I have so much older stash that I made a promise to myself to also use up all the old supplies that I have had kicking around, some of it for years.  I have stuff that I won in contests or stuff I earned on design teams.  It's bordering on the ridiculous! So, here is my first jump into using up some old stash and I'm quite pleased with the result.

This is a really old Heidi Swapp paper that I misted with Tattered Angels and inked with Distress Inks.  I pop-dotted the butterflies (which were already partially cut for that purpose) and added some My Mind's Eye brads. I inked the butterflies as well. The vines were cut with the Cricut. Even the paper strips are from scraps of Heidi Swapp, Fancy Pants and some specialty paper from a Scraptivity kit.  See?  I had to sneak in some Fancy Pants, somewhere.  ;)

I should have another page for the end of the week.  I've been on a roll!  Woohoo!

Already neglected. :(

It's been a pretty busy week around here.  I had all the good intentions of updating my blog, but as you can see, that didn't happen.  Anyway, I thought I would post the pages I did at the Bull River Scrapbook Retreat in May.  I produced a record number of pages, this year.  And I'm pretty happy with what I created, too. I'm working on the vacation album from our trip to Mexico.  I'm trying to get it done quickly and simply. So far, that plan is not working out.  Brian laughed at me when I said the pages would be simple.  A girl can dream, can't she?

It took me a while to remember how to photograph my layouts for the web. It's been a looooong time.  And I'm not sure how big an image Blogger will allow me to upload.  So these may be a bit small.  But, it's a start.  I'll have to upload more often so I can figure it out.  Promises, promises.  ;)


Papers are Bo Bunny

Fancy Pants papers & rubons.  I stamped the pattern in the top left corner to match the existing pattern on the lower right.  Heidi Swapp letters covered in Stickles.

More Fancy Pants paper, embellishments, and transparency.  Unknown ribbon.  Title from Cricut.

Paper is October Afternoon & Bazzill. Basic Grey title, and borrowed rubber stamps (CTMH stamp?)

 More October Afternnon and Bazzill paper.  Fancy Pants rubons and glitter embellies.  American Crafts and Pink Paislee title.  More Stickles!

I started this page at the retreat, but finished it at home. I love this photo!

Very old Rusty Pickle papers, Bazzill Cardstock.  Doodlebug brads, Making Memories and American Crafts title, Daisy D's journaling spot.

Thanks for looking everyone!  I'm hoping to post a few more this week.

First Post

Okay.  So, I never thought I'd have a blog.  But, I'm going to give it a try and see what happens.  I'm not sure how how often I'll post, but I thought it would be a great place to upload my scrapping stuff for friends and family to see.

Here goes!
