Finally DONE!

With my last ScrapGoods DT layouts - sniff sniff!  And my Secret Sister's altered gift (well, one of them at least!)  Here are the goodies I've been working on :D

My DT layouts - this first one is a hot pink and teal/blue color.  But my camera doesn't like the light in my house, and we never have the sun up this time of year, so you'll have to deal with it! LOL!

Baby #4 profile pic - awwww.... I tried to make this gender neutral as they basically told us its either a boy or girl! LOL! Yep, really narrowed it down for us!

The girl's Santa picture this year a "Ho Ho's House" 

And here are a few of the things for my Secret Sister.  The SnowMan soup I totally copied from the owner of Back Porch Memories at her store in town.

And I saw these little houses on sale for 40 CENTS!!! at Michael's so of course I had to pick up a few!  And figure out what to do with them!

Now I just have to work on the rest of my Christmas Cards and some gift card holders and get them out next week!!! EEK! Only 12 days til Christmas!!!

Holiday Goodies

Okay, so I guess I'm doing good with posts once a month! LOL!  I've been busy scrapping and altering and making cards for Christmas.  I also found a LSS (the only one!) that has monthly crops and have made some new scrappy REAL LIFE friends! Don't worry, I still love my e-friends too! ;)

Here are some goodies I've made:


And a LO using the November SG kit!  December is their last month... I'm hoarding the last kit ever from SG!  This LO also uses a sketch from GETTIN SKETCHY!!!  You have until Dec 25th to submit your LO to win an awesome kit from My Sweet Spuds!

I'm still alive!!

And I've been scrapping some too! Mostly with kits here and there.  I am getting together to make some Christmas Cards soon too with some friends. Can't wait. But here are the LOs I've done this last... month?

These LOs and card were done with the
My Sweet Spuds October Kit.  The CT at Gettin' Sketchy got a little bit of the kit to play with! Isn't it awesome!

And speaking of Gettin' Sketchy, here is the LO I did for Thorunn's November sketch!! It was an awesome sketch! Head on over to check it out, you have until Nov. 25th to enter your take on the sketch.

And these were done for the ScrapGoods November kit.  The technique this month was FELTING!  Pretty cool and I love the turnout!

Felted the flower in the corner, the leaves are the stamp from the kit.
Hand-felted the swirls here.
Felted the large flower using the template SG provided and hand-felted the stem and smaller flower.  I also used MM ready to glitter stickers and flocked them.
And this is for the SG Nov Telephone Scraplift... so if you are in my group - DON'T LOOK!!!  I set eyelets all along the diecut felt piece... took me forever! Thank goodness for my crop-a-dile!

Whew - DONE!!!

Wow! I'm finally done with my scrappy room! WOOHOO!  I have WAY TOO MUCH STUFF! LOL! And I buy more every week! Hehehe - I guess why its called an addiction.  So here are pics of my fabulous room, off to the right and behind me there is a lot more space, but it is currently filled with empty boxes and trash that we have to take to the dump - or find someone who's moving soon (which shouldn't be too hard in a military community!) Enjoy the pics, oh, and excuse the mess on my desk, it was all nice and clean, and then I had to go a scrap a LO!



And here is the LO I scrapped using the ScrapGoods October flower soft technique - its really pretty! The Flower soft is the stuff around the photo mat, on the brads in the top right and the swirl under the title.

I have been slowly trying to get my house done, so the scraproom has taken a backseat. I did a little bit for about an hour the other night, and then was down there for another hour today before my back hurt too much to do any more.


I think it looks messier now... it was all nice and neat in the boxes! LOL!


This picture is the empty boxes and trash!


I still want to rearrange the furniture and clean my desk. Three whole boxes of scrapbooks and photo books are on the floor. Other than that, I only have three more boxes to unpack!!  My clip-it-up better be in one!!!!  I'm still missing a few things that I am hoping in one of the boxes, otherwise I'm going to have to make some claims! GRRR!  Like my cricut design studio... I have everything but the USB that plugs the cricut to the computer! ACK! That is sort of essential!

Whew... okay, made it safe to Alaska... we've actually been here a month! WOW! It's been snowing, we have about 4 inches on the ground and its still snowing! LOL! The girls are excited... I give them another month or two before they're sick of it!!! But this is what my scrappy room looks like... hope to have it put together enough to scrap this weekend!!! WISH ME LUCK!

Random Tag

Tagged from Ryann - 6 Random things about me:

1. I like to cook! And I like to think I'm a pretty good cook, at least my husband thinks so!

2. Some days I do not get out of my jamas and let the kids fend for themselves, eating and drinking what they can find (trust me, they do not starve). And the house doesn't even get looked at! Those are the days Dustin comes home and says "WHAT HAPPENED?" LOL!

3. I got my first mini-van at 22 years old!! And I can't live without one now!

4. I have anger issues

5. I am a homebody. I'd rather stay at home than do anything. I have books (as long as I go to the library) and internet at home - I am content :D

6. I have more online friends than real ones - and we get along better - LOL!

Just stressing out with the transition to Alaska. We are currently in Arizona for the month of August and will be headed to Alaska September 2nd. Oh, and I do have some news for my cyber buddies - I'm pregnant AGAIN!!!! DH had a vasectomy and we thought we were finished with three gorgeous little girls... but God has decided to bless us with another baby!!! WOW!! I just hope I can handle it (**crossing my fingers I don't lose my mind**)

Here are some LOs done for the DT with the August ScrapGoods kit. It really is an awesome kit!

July ScrapGoods Layouts

Oh my DH loves me so much.  All my scrappy stuff is on its way to Alaska and I won't get it back until the middle to end of October! :(   But I kept my printer and photo paper and some tools.  And YAY!!! I got my July ScrapGoods kit in the mail!!  So I've been wanting to play.... but my printer was out of ink.  So DH went and bought me ink and I've done 4 layouts since Saturday!! WHEW! Got my scrapping fix in! LOL!
This month's kit is awesome.  GORGEOUS MME papers and the COOLEST Coredination cardstock!!! Have you heard of this stuff??? If not, you should check it out! I've been scratching and distressing for two days!  Oh, and everything I've used on these pages is from the kit!!! I have nothing else! LOL!
Jessy and Sierra.  The border is all scratched out of the coredination cardstock. The design is from the template in the kit.  The flourishes and bird were white vinyl clings that I inked with red stazon.  I didn't mean to go monochromatic, but everything I added just didn't seem to 'go' unless it was red, KWIM? So it turned out mono.
The Heidelberg Castle.  It SUCKS not having all my stuff with me, I had to make do hand cutting and paper piecing where I normally wouldn't have done that.  But I think this turned out great.  I paper pieced the butterfly and flower from the SG kit and then scratched with the tool included. 
Ruby Roo riding a horsey.  Simple LO that really just came together and I think its my favorite from this kit! I love the core cardstock!!! Did I say that already?  Its really easy to distress. with the title, I handcut it and then scraped off the outer edge for some pop.
The three amigos!  Dillon, Sierra, Ruby (and Karis) this summer during Dillon's visit.  Scratched the title, the border around the star, and the squiggly lines between the pics.

July C2P Layouts

I got my C2P kit last week. Are you ladies jealous? You should be! It is perfect for summer fun photos.  Especially since we just visited Legoland.  The colors were perfect! And I even got a nice castle LO from the kit too. I have more plans, but they will have to wait until October.  My house gets packed up July 8th and I won't get it back until then :(
Enjoy the layouts!

In my thoughts

Just a cute card I made the other night. I made a bunch of cards and I challenged myself to use only cardstock!! It was hard!! But I got to play witha bunch of my background stamps :D

Saturday, May 24, 2008


Guess who's on the new ScrapGoods DT... yep, that would be me! YAY! I'm excited for this next year! Lots and LOTS of wonderful ladies tried out this year, and I want to congratulate all for submitting your LOs! Amy and Jodi must have been going google-eyed!! So here are the LOs I submitted - ENJOY!

For those of you who don't know, ScrapGoods is a monthly kit club that not only comes chocked full of papers and embellies, but they include a technique (and everything needed to DO the technique) too!

August 2007 kit - kajinker and edged templates. I used the stamp to stamp a semi circle that I traced with the template and cut out. Kajinker'd the gems, chipboard tags, and ribbon/trim on too! Pics are of me preggo with all three girls!
February 2007 - Writing with Fiber. I 'drew' the scallops and the word 'day' with the fiber writing pen and used the heart chipboard and glitter stickers and covered with pink glitter. Pictures are of my first birthday... back in 1981 :D
May 2008 - Making your own Bling designs. I used the kit papers and cut the zig-zag cardstock to make a border. Used the Prima blue swirls and made my own orange swirls by just tracing a flourish and placing bling down. Added a HS chip letter D and cut the title from orange bazzill bling on my cricut. Pics are of mine and Marinka's kiddos at the Dinosaur park.
