Matching Titles

Told you I have been busy! These items were created for a "Title Swap" at my local scrapbook store. I made them to coordinate with the border swap that I did in the previous post.

Hope you like my ideas!

Borders, Borders and more Borders!

Sorry to be away from my poor little blog. I had a huge commitment of swaps to do for SCS and have finally gotten them all done. Now I have time to post what I have been working on.

These are 6 sets of borders that I did for a swap on SCS. Hope you like them.
They were for a 4 Seasons Border swap and you needed to include a journal box, at least one photo box and 2 pieces of page candy.

I do CARDS too!

Bet you girls are thinking, "Does she only do layouts?" Well they are my favorite but I also do an occasional card now and then. I dug deep into my "Pictures" folder to find this one for you. I was in a Penny Black Hedgehog Image swap a few months ago and sent this card to the hostess as a thank you. It also used the ONLY Penny Black image I had at the time. (Yes, my collection on those critters is growing! Yeah)

Hope you like my card. Oh, I used white fun flock to make there bellies fuzzy. It had great texture.

My Beach Babies!

I really hate to see summer come to an end. Although I love fall and all the beautiful new colors of the season the slight chill in the air makes me very sad. I am one of the few that love the 80, 90 and 100 degree days.

Although we did not make it to the beach this year, :( I still have plenty of pictures to scrap from years past. I actually created this layout for a Summer Swap I am in on Split Coast Stampers. As soon as I got it complete I printed my photos and placed them on. What a perfect and simple way to spend a day!

The "Day at the Beach" Title was designed using Cricut Design Studio, sand castle (I made the upper 3 windows larger to fit the photos) and ball are actually from "Life's a Beach" cartridge, pail is from "Joys of the Season" (Maids a milking!) and the shovel came off of "Paper Dolls" (Be sure to look at the extras on that cartridge.)

As usual, Happy Scrappin!

Summer's End - Let's Eat!

The end of summer is here...time to spread a little cheer! I created this layout for a swap at our local scrapbook store, P.S. I Love you Scrapbooking. This would be the perfect layout for a BBQ, Watermelon Eating contest or other summer activities that involve food!

I hope you like it, you can also have a this listed on eBay, Summer BBQ, if you are interested in getting it for yourself.

The pattern paper came from a set at Target - in the dollar bin! The bears were hand torn and created by me and I designed the "Let's Eat" title in Sure Cuts A Lot and the ant in Cricut Design studio using George and Basic Shapes.

Happy Scrappin!

Do you need "Smore Fun"!

S'mores are my favorite treat and we have "S'mores Parties" on our front patio at least once a week during the fall.

I did this layout for a Split Coast Swap that I am in and just love how it turned out. I made the title in Cricut Design Studio. The bears are had torn out of mulberry paper and that process is really long to explain how they are made.

This layout is also listed on eBay for sale "Smore Fun" (your link to it).

Please email me with any questions that you may have. And wipe the chocolate off your face!
Happy Scrappin.

Let's go Camping!

Grab your flashlight and tent, it's time for the Great Outdoors. I did this layout for a Cricut swap that I am participating in on Split Coast Stampers. The lantern, coffee pot, dutch oven, fire and sign were all cuts from the Camp Out Solutions cartridge. This cartridge has a great selection of outdoor items perfect for any hunters, fishermen, and campers.

I'm really sorry but I can't remember the manufacturer of the paper. The orange stamped section is from a CTMH stamp set called Under the Stars.

Happy Scrappin!

Back to School

Well it's that time of year when I get really depressed. I HATE school! Yes, more than my children do! We rush to get homework done, shove dinner down, get in the tub, ohhhh and look, now it's time for bed. Ifeel like I never get to see them when school starts back up.

The only up side to it of course is a great photo opportunity. With that comes the layout.....by now you should know that I LOOOOOVVVEEE my Cricut. Hope you enjoy this little creation I put together. "School Rules" (Not for me, I miss my kids.)
The black mats are suppose to represent chalk boards and you can even put photos in the bus windows. If you are a Split Coast swapper you may see this coming your way for a Border Swap I am participating in and also a 4 Seasons layout swap.
As always, Happy Scrappin!
