Simple Valentine

I have a really simple card for you today. I used SU paper, ink, stamps, and texture plates on this card!  The fibers are from my LSS and the flower is a dimensional from Marcella St K.

Goofin' Around!

I have another simple layout for you today.  I just love these pages, the colors turned out so well!  The paper is all CM.  I used Mickey Font and welded the shadow, but cut the letters individually.  The Goofy is from a really old piece of paper I had!  I cut him out and pop dotted him up!

Valentine Card

I did this card for the January swap at Paper Crafting Mania.  The theme was Valentine's.  I used Smiley Cards to cut the shapes.  (I just love this cartridge!  I wish there was a book, but it WAS free so I can't really complain!)  The paper is all SU.  The sentiment and ink is also SU.  The face stamps are from Peachy Keen Stamps.

Disney Layout

I thought I'd give y'all a break on the Valentine Cards!  This layout was done using scraps from the other pages.  I used Don Juan and Paisley for the words.  The arrows were cut from Accent Essentials.  This has turned out to be my most favorite layout so far.  I still have MANY more pages to go!

Popsicle Valentine

This will be my son's Valentine.  The challenge on Fantabulous Cricut this week was to incorporate something "sweet" into your project.  I immediately had this idea pop into my head!  I also used all scraps on my card, which was the Thursday challenge on Paper Crafting Mania!  All of the printed paper is BoBunny.  The cardstock is SU.  The inking was all done with Colorbox.  I used Doodlecharms for the popsicle and Just Because Cards for the sentiment.

Valentine Card

This is the Valentine that I made for my daughter.  The "I Love You" paper is Me & My Big Ideas and everything else is SU.  I used Storybook to cut the scalloped square, Paisley for the hearts and Very Merry Tags for the tag.  The silver heart is a SU stamp and colorbox ink.  The sentiment is from SU with SU ink!  This card also works with the challenge over at Paper Playtime.

Valentine Card

My friend, Sharon, and I made some cards this week.  She made one like this and I liked it so well that I had to scraplift it from her!  Of course, ours are a little different.  The cardstock in SU.  The printed paper is Me&My Big Ideas.  The hearts were cut with George, the month and date with Designer's Calendar and the key/lock are from Gypsy Wanderings.  We used Tim Holtz Distress Ink on the edge of the printed paper.

Simple Layout

I consider myself to have a very simple scrapbooking style.  Sometimes that style becomes even simpler when the pcitures do all the talking!  This is my 2 page layout of Minnie Mouse's house.  I had a really good picture of the front of her house, so I didn't really see the need in piecing together all the layers of her house.  I did cut "Minnie" from Mickey and Friends and I had a Minnie sticker from CM that was the perfect size!  The paper is from AdornIt.

Disney Layout

While we were at Disney World, my nephew was also there with his high school's band.  We got to watch the band march down Main Street past the Castle and thru Frontier Land.  It was awesome!  How many kids actually get to do that?  We ran behind them and beside them trying to get pictures!  The title is SU chipboard letters that I colored using SU black craft ink then I sprayed them with my homemade glimmer mist!  (SU glimmer paint and alcohol) The vellum paper is from Joann's and the journaling box is CM.

Disney Layout

I am back after taking a few days break.  I did go to a crop on Saturday, so I have several layouts to share.  I have noticed that I don't really get comments on my layouts.  Y'all either don't like layouts or you don't like mine, but I'm sharing anyway!  This is my layout of Tom Sawyer Island.  I used Old West's board font to cut the title and then I took a sliver pen and put dots where the nails should be.  I also used Very Merry Tags to cut the tag, then I inked it with Colorbox ink and hand wrote "Explore" on it.  I tied it to the picture with Paper Trey Inc. rustic twine.  The green pattern is from CTMH and I also inked it.  The journaling box is CM.

Swap Card

The swap card for this month on Paper Crafting Mania was a New Year's Card.  I thought this theme was rather hard and I was running short on time, so I made a more generic card.  Hopefully, the receiver was not too disappointed.  I used SU cardstock, ink, and stamps for this card.  The ribbon is American Crafts.  I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder on the pink background.

Here is a shot of it with the tag extended:

Disney Layouts

I promised to post some of the pages I did.  Here are two of them. The red pattern and white pattern papers are from Creative Imaginations, the black is Sandy Lion.  The chipboard embellishments are from Disney.  I tried something new and put embossing powder on a Zot and heat embossed it, let is dry, and then used it for the centers of the chipboard.  It worked really well, but it would have looked better if I would have used the new Zots that are thicker.  The camera was cut from Create A Critter and the letters are Mickey Font.  I used my CM bubble maker to make the holes.

Snowy Delights Card

The challenge this week on Fantabulous Cricut was Snowy Delights.   We were to create a project and incorporate snow or snow flakes.  Now, I know that Christmas is over, but I'm getting a jump on next year!  The kraft paper, stamp, ink and imbossing folder are all from SU.  The red and green were from scraps and the silver chord is some that I bought a garage sale!  I used shimmer paint from SU to give the snow flakes some shine and the Bitty Sparkles are CTMH.  I used Accent Essentials to cut the frames for the sentiment.

Birthday Card

My nephew turned 16 just before Christmas.  I thought this would be an appropriate card for a 16 year old boy (his mom may not agree!) The stamps and ink are CTMH and the paper was scraps.

Goals for 2011

Did y'all think I'd dropped off the face of the Earth?  I had a rough month of December!  I'm glad that this holiday season is over!  I LOVE the holidays, but this one was  very stressful. 

At the beginning of 2010, I set a goal to do 200 scrapbook pages.  So how'd I do?  I only did 120 pages, so 10 pages a month, not bad I guess, but definitely not my goal.  For 2011, I decided to be a little more reasonable and set a goal of 12 pages per month!  And I already have 2 done!  What is your goal for 2011?

 I will also try to be better about posting. Check back later in the week to see some of the pages that I did last week!
