Yep, I Did It AGAIN...

I scrapbooked, yayy me. Now, if I could just make pages for ME not someone else I would be cooking with Crisco, LOL!! I am not REALLY a scrapbooker, but I admire people that are. I love the personal touch it gives photos and the memories that they represent. Let's face it, it is WAY better than having all your photos sitting in a shoebox(or forgetting to take your camera everywhere which I am FAMOUS for). I made these two 6x6 pages as part of a gift the Prettie Girls and I got together for our fellow Prettie, Jana. She was SUPPOSED to have her son Jackson in December, but since he came WAY early, we finally got her package out to her. We each sent a gift, some homemade, some not...but let me tell you, it was a box FULL of LOVE!! Now that I KNOW she has received it, I can show you all the pages I made. Instead of cards(which I think we all sent anyway, but hey, she has a HUGE jump on a scrapbook), we decided that we would all make her 6x6 scrapbook pages using the same paper. It was up to each person to decorate them the way they wanted, but we all had to use the same paper. I opted to use my NEVER BEFORE INKED(shameful I tell ya) I'm Here set from SU. I stamped the hand and foot with Soft Sky ink , then I used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the I'm Here. For the writing, I printed the info out on the computer and then stamped the foot over it. The ribbons are from SU and the brads are from American Crafts. The brads and DP(by American Crafts too, The Muffin Man line) were both purchased in the Paper Pretties boutique(ETA I have had a couple of people ask me for if ALL the DP is part of this line, yes it is, but it is sold out in the boutique, sorry)!! The blank Chocolate Chip spaces are for Jana to add pictures, not that you needed me to tell you that, LOL!! These are pretty simple, but I love them..and I can't WAIT to see them once Jana puts pictures on them!! Thanks for looking!!

It's Late....

and I am still up, so I decided that I might as well participate in the Limited Supplies Challenge for today. Honestly, this card was SO EASY...I think I had it done in 10mins..that is INCLUDING the Cuttlebugging....yayyy me!! The challenge was to make a Valentine that would be easy to reproduce. Only restrictions were that you limit the amount of cutting you did, not too many embellishments, keep it pretty simple, and use only Reds, Pinks, White, Kraft or Black. I opted to just go with Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette. I used my brand new, Hundred Hearts set from Verve Stamps. Basically, this card was the big heart stamped in Pink Pirouette, the sentiment stamped with Riding Hood Red, cut and embossed with Classic Circle Nesties, punch two hearts from some Bella Rose DSP with my heart punch, and DONE. I did put another piece of the Bella Rose DSP on the base after Cuttlebugging the white with my Swiss Dots folder. One lonely piece of ribbon, 4 brads and it was FINISHED!! Thanks for I am off to dreamland!!
