I finally finished all the layouts for my daughter's Sr. Trip with her friends, this is the last group. It was such a fun trip and I had so much fun scrapbooking them. I used the Giggles & Grins Studio J digital paper pack for all of these layouts for a cohesive look. Now onto another big scrapbooking layout project!

This is the prize that I gave out at my Card Workshop this month. I used the Sparkle & Shine paper, Juniper cardstock and White Daisy cardstock. I used the Season's Tweetings stamp set. I cut the box out using the Cricut Artiste cartridge. For the wreath and the banner, I used the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

The CTMH Bonding Memories Glue Pen is my go-to glue. The only problem I have ever had with the glue is if you leave the lid off or don't get it snapped all the way closed, the tip can dry out. In this picture you can see the blue tip is still working great, but the white tip is full of all dried up glue.
One day I accidentially pulled on a tip and realized that the tips come out real easily so if you have a dried up tip all you have to do is pull it out and put a juicy blue one in until the glue is empty then just switch it back to use up the glue pen you took the good tip from. Pretty cool tip, right?! Because I do workshops, unfortunately this tends to happen a lot to me as customers don't always notice that they didn't get the lid back on all the way and this tip has saved a ton of glue pens for me.

Taylor came home with a great idea for a baby hat that she wanted to give as a gift, a white hat with a Daffodil on it. This is what we came up with, unfortunately she was too excited to give the gift before I got a picture of the finished product. This is just a picture I took of it before sewing the Daffodil on the hat, but you can get the general idea of how it looked, pretty cute!

This is my final layout from my daughter's Senior Trip with her friends. It's the miscellaneous pictures that didn't seem to go with the other layouts that I did. One of the pictures was a photo booth strip of pictures that I scanned then added a picture well and shaped it to fit the long skinny shape that the photo booth produces, I just love that I was able to digitally add it!

This is the prize I made for my November Card Workshop. It is the mini hat box from the CTMH Artiste Cartridge. I used the Sparkle & Shine paper pack for the box, Ruby CS for the bow and White Daisy CS for the tag. I got it at the relative size of 3.5" for the box. The bow was cut at 4.3 x 1. I tucked, my favorite, a Lindt Truffle inside each one.

|This Kraft Container is available in the Autumn/Winter 2013 Catalog and I wrapped it with paper from the Sparkle & Shine kit and used the Season's Tweetings stamp set. So cute to fill with cookies or other treats.|

On saturday we had our Ward's Super Saturday. I was in charge of a class on bracelets which was a new craft for me, but I had found some really cute bracelets on Pinterest and created them from that. So here are pictures and instructions of my versions:
Stretch Button BraceletMaterials: 26” .5mm stretchy cord, 27 buttons (9 medium sized buttons, 9 large buttons, 9 small decorative buttons), needle
Step 1: Lay your buttons out in desired pattern.
Step 2: Leaving about a 3" tail, begin stringing your buttons as follows: the cord comes up from the bottom and thru the large and small decorative button, then back down, then down through the medium button, back up through the medium button, up through the large and small decorative button, and so on until it is the length you need.
Materials: (15) 12 mm pearls, 1 yd 3/8" ribbon, 2 ft .5mm Stretch Magic cord, needle, Fray Check
1. Thread a pearl on needle sliding it down until it is flush with ribbon knot.
2. Wrap ribbon around pearl sewing through where it touches the other hole of pearl.
3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 to desired length.
1. Same as steps 1 & 2 of The Wave.
2. Sew back up through the ribbon .5" from your previous stitch.
3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 to desired length (do not do step 2 on last bead).
Step 3: Make several knots in cord, tie tails of cord and ribbon in a knot flush with last pearl. Trim the tails of the cord. Knot or tie ribbon tightly trimming ends & sealing with Fray Check.
Materials: torn 2x8 muslin, 1.5x8 cotton and (3) 3/4x15 muslin for rosettes, loose threads of cotton and muslin; 7” pearl lace; 1 clasp; approx. 15 beads; needle; thread
Step 1: Layout 2x8 muslin piece with cotton piece on top, then layer loose threads and lace in desired pattern minus 1” at edge for overlap.
Step 2: Make spiral rosettes with the 3 3/4x15 pieces of muslin (for smaller rosettes tear piece to 12”) by grasping one end of your fabric twisting and rolling into a coil holding the bottom of the rosette until finished.
Step 3: Begin sewing layers in place sewing on beads and rosettes (for fabric rosettes, make sure to put at least one small stitch through each portion of your spiral from the outside to the center sewing up and down on each row) in various places as you go. Finish by sewing clasp on each end of bracelet (make sure you stitch the one half of the clasp before the 1” overlap).

I was really excited to create these, they remind me of Pumpkin Pie with some whip cream on them. I created these boxes using the Artist Cricut cartridge cut at 2.5" with the Huntington paper and the Colonial White Rosette Ribbon. I stamped the tags using the Perfect Fit Thanksgiving set.
