Well it is the weekend and I and looking forward to getting my creative juices flowing.  Being a Dual military family with kids does not allow a lot of free time during the week to be creative.  I am going to put this weekend to good use and veg-out in my little scrapping corner.  Hope to have some cool pages or cards to upload.

red cardstock cut 3 3/4 x 5 3/4
Cricut "sweatheart" cartridge
  - cherub shadow colored black and cut at 4inches
  - white cherub cut at 4 inches

12 Month Scrapbook Challenge - February

Keeping with the 12 Month Scrapbook Challenge with Creations with Christina.  I tried doing sewing on the page.  So for one I hand stitched too many threads but this was the first-time I did any sewing on my pages.  I used foam thickers and used a Micheal's $1.00 pink ink pad to color the letters from white to pink.  My journaling was accomplished in MS word and used Word and shaded the journaling block in pink.

12 Month Scrapbook Challenge - January

As you know I love to watch podcasts and videos.  The one I love to watch is Creation with Christina(link on my blog title page).  She has established a challenge to create a 12 Month Scrapbook.  We last year, I turned 40 so I decided to do "Year at 40" album.  This was my January page since it is my birthday month.  My album is 8x8.  The green background paper is by Brazzil.  I used rubon's for the month.  I took pictures of all the gifts I received and used the Marvy Uchida scallop to cut them out.  The picture is 4x6 and the brown background is Brazzil.  I used some ribbon from Micheals(not sure of the brand).  The brad I made with my I-Top, I so love that tool.  The journal sheet came from a $1.00 pack from Micheals.  I am so bad about writing things down.  This is the first-time that I am posting a project of my for all to see.  I started scrapping in August 2004.  So I am by no means an expert and I still have a lot to learn about "rules of 3", colors and visulaization, etc.... so enjoy.

All done with a acrylic stamps by Our Craft Lounge "reindeer kisses" Stampendous brown and white flocking. Copic markers were used on the reindeer and the Santa prior to flocking. Both cards were made last year at Archiver's christmas card class. Really love the stamps.
