what to do what to do?

It’s Saturday and generally my day to do what I want. My kids are both old enough where the Saturday sporting events are history… part of me misses them, but a part of me DOESNT !!!
I have a ton to organize.. I have a 9X9 room which is my scraproom. I spend alot of time doing some sort of scrapping… or making cards. I am a cricut Fairy which is a group that takes missions and sends cards all over the world for people that need to smile or know someone is thinking about them. I look at this as my way of giving back. I also what seems like constantly reorganizing my little room. I have a ton of stuff crammed into that room. I alot of times share it with my dogs… which really can make my floor space a problem. LOL.. we call it my cave. All you have to say to one of my babies is go to mommys cave and they go running.
I do alot of designing in this room as well. Titles, scrapbook pages and cards. I would rather design than watch tv. In fact, most of my shows are taped (we have uverse) so I can watch then when I want.. usually in bed.
So what to do today??? After organizing all my projects and I have a ton of those as well, I realized that because I was working on the pre-done baby album all summer, I have absolutely no idea what where or when I last scrapbooked for myself. My never ending daughters albums.. I think she has six now, my sons which have barely been started, the family one, my parents wedding pictures (which were missing via a divorce for 35 years) my present for my hubby for xmas and there are a bunch more. What to do??? LOL.. it is organize those pictures time. Did I get them all printed. I know they are all in Memory Manager so I can go by date (thank god) and go through all my pics. I have numerous power sort boxes going (another thank god) so it shouldnt be that tough. That is what Ill handle today. Going through those pictures and reorganizing and getting to know where I stand with each project. It would be nice to finally be done with my daughters. People keep giving me pictures that of course I want to include. LOL. I will be scrapbooking for the rest of my life!!! Time to get organized thats what it is going to be.. oh and yes, Im going out to dinner with hubby and my son for my birthday which is tomorrow. The melting pot which I absolutely love.. oh yeah, have to remember the camera. Those will make such fun scrapbook pages.. see what I mean? Never ending.. LOL. Not to worry. It is something that makes me very happy. I LOVE TO SCRAPBOOK.



Here you go. My first layout to share. I did the title for a swap and then put it down for this layout. It was cut with cricut cartridges George, Lyrical Letters and Paper doll dressup. The background is from the primary Halloween Power Palette Addition. The figures were all cut using Creative Memories cardstock..

you are so bootiful


I just found out by asking questions of Creative Memories, that I now CAN show and use my cricut on my blog. I know alot of you own a cricut machine, and have often asked if I could share some of my work…. well, NOW I CAN.
In the very near future, I will not only be posting some projects for you to enjoy copy etc, but I will also from time to time add some cut files shown in certain projects. This will allow me to give you with design studio a present …. a shared cut file. Im very excited about this and am looking forward to many projects in the making..


Combining Digital and paper….

A few of you that have seen my cards, ask me how to I do the digital embellishments on my cards. Im hoping this explains it.
First you start with some digital freebies from my website and go to project center, Digital Project ideas and then Digital Freebies.
I grabbed this and this.

I took them into Storybook Plus and copied and changed the colors on the butterflies, and the background. I then added the butterflies exactly where I wanted them and this is what I got. Added that image to some paper cut to card size… and I was finished. Very easy.

092309 1I love the new black and white paper. It works so well with cards as well. Also love the flowers in black and white…
Here is one I did this morning.

Baby book finished

raven page - Page 001as alot of you know, I was busy working on a pre-done baby album for my new great niece who was born only 6 weeks ago. I finally finished it, and sent it to my niece. Here is a pic of the baby… she of course is adorable. The only sad part is they recently moved to Montana, so seeing them will become a major issue… sad sad sad.

Created with digital scrapbooking software

A big hello and an apology

First of all I want to welcome everyone to my blog… but I also want to apologize for not completely knowing what Im doing yet. LOL. Ill get it eventually.

Why a blog? I love to communicate with my customers. I love to show new techniques, show new products, and share everything I know about my wonderful business. I happen to love what I do, and hopefully you can get to know me a bit better through this blog. I live and breath scrapbooking. I plan on posting about once a week. I could do it daily though I think that would be a bit much, unless something unusual is happening. I hope you all enjoy what I have to offer you. Come back very soon. 🙂
