New Year Pop-up Card

I just love a good New Year's stamp set as they seem to be a little on the rare side so this month's Stamp of the Month Cheers, 2016! is perfect!  I wanted to make a pop-up card to feature the 2016 stamp.  I also used our Silver Glitter paper and Silver Shimmer Trim to finish off the card.

Christmas Pocket Scrapbooking Layout

I love how quick and easy the pocket pages are to use!  Here are my Christmas pictures using the White Pines Picture My Life cards (only available until December 31, 2015).  I had a few more pictures that I wanted to add to this page, so I used the 3x4 and 4x6 Flip Flap pages which are my favorite thing to use in scrapbooking!  I just love how the layouts turned out!

Reindeer Card

The Reindeer Bells stamp set is so cute!  I think the reindeer itself is my favorite stamp of the set.  I used the White Pines paper for the card and added some Poppy Extra Thick Twine and Gold Sequins to finish it off.  Sooooo cute!

Knitted Wedding Shawl

My daughter's best friend recently got married and she had wanted to borrow the caplet that I had made my daughter last year for her wedding.  I decided I would surprise her instead with one of her own.  I had to knit quickly, but got done with days to spare.  She just loved it and it made me so happy.  Isn't she just beautiful!

Cars Layout With Urban Papers

At first I wasn't sure what I would use the awesome new Urban papers for to scrapbook, but as I was looking through my photos I came across these of my son and his adventures with cars and realized they would be perfect.  Some of the Urban complements were perfect to go along with the story of what all happened with his cars, crazy few months that's for sure!

Masculine Birthday Card

The Urban papers were perfect to make this masculine birthday card.  It was fun using the Ink Blot stamps and I used the Lovely Birthday stamp set for the sentiment to finish it off.

Pen Pal Station

I was looking through Pinterest and came across some pen pal things and I was remembering how much I loved writing people.  I had a pen pal from 5th grade through college graduation (we some how lost touch after than).  I used to send cards and letters all the time, but I quit doing it when I started therapy, I just didn't have the energy for it during that time and haven't gotten out of the habit.  But it is definitely something I have been wanting to get back into and when I came across a pin of a pen pal station I knew I had to do it.  I just took my current in box (which was just becoming a clutter pile) and created it.  I took a cardboard box and cut it up the way I wanted it to be, covered the pieces with white contact paper and then used strapping tape to put it all together.  On the left side is cards ready to use.  The right side is split between a section in the back to put letters I have received waiting for me to reply to and the front for stamps and stickers.  I just love it!

Knotts Scary Farms Digital Layout

This month the Nevermore digital paper was released on Studio J this month and I couldn't wait to use it and I had the perfect pictures from going to "Knotts Scary Farms" for their Halloween Haunt.  It was really fun seeing it from Hannah's view of things having worked for them in the past.  We really had a great time meeting all her monster friends!
