Thank you invitations

I made 20 Thank You cards as a gift for a friend who is having a baby shower this weekend. I used brown ribbon to tie them as a package. I challenged myself to use only what I had at home. The pattern paper is DCWV Nursery. I did not have the right colored flowers so I used a large flower punch and for the center I used Martha Stewarts snowflake punch.

Scraping the Simple Moments

I tend to only scrapbook vacations, holidays, birthdays and events. But I realized, its the simple moments that need to be remembered. 20 Years from now I will still have memories of trips, holidays, etc. but will I remember the businesses my daughter started, the funny remarks my son said, probably not. I've set a new goal, to scrap all the precious moments and to do it now. I have a drawer full of businesses my daughter has started in the last six months and not a one do I have scrapped. Instead of waiting to scrap these pages when I have time and embellish the pages, I'm going to make these pages simple, just journaling and the artwork. I'd rather have not perfect pages and the memories, then to have forgotten these simple moments years later.

I need a title for our fireworks pages. So I did this as a Stacked Title challenge.


This was done a Disney swap. Belle just looks like she should be picking some flowers. the next time I do a page similar to this one I want to try using flowersoft.


I did this for a Disney swap. The trees are a stamp used with several colors. Pocahanus and Meeko are from Dreams Come True. The stump is my paper piece. I really like making theme pages.

Tear Bear

This is my first Tear Bear. I'm making a friend ten baby brag books.

Disney Layouts

These are the layouts I completed last week from our Disney vacation last summer. I'm a little behind but hoping to catch up soon. I spent one afternoon cutting all the letters and diecuts and then made page kits. So when I have a few free minutes and can put together the pages for my album. My Goal is to have this album finished before September 1.
