Recent Projects

I finally have my pictures on here so I can now get my post done. I have some Studio J pages that I will be posting once they arrive. I will see what they look like first. I hope the spelling and grammar will be correct.

I had not received my red shimmer trim as it was on back order so I decided to use my silver shimmer trim and it looked nice as well.

The cards I made using the card project from CTMH and the Sparkle & Shine paper was fun. I had one lady able to make the evening class. Thanks again Lori for braving the weather.

I had fun making this card kit from CTMH. It is the new Cloud Nine Card Making Kit.  I am looking forward to using the cards.  You can receive this card kit for $15 if you place an order in January, from the 1st to the 31st, for $35 before shipping and taxes. You get to make 10 cards, 2 of each design.

Finally got to making this for my son. I bought it last year for Christmas and ran out of time to make it. 

I decided that a new desk was in order so that I could have a place for my pens etc. This means things can be put out of the way. I now have more room to work. This desk was an awesome purchase as it is quite large and solid wood. I am glad I did not have to lift it. I am enjoying not having to use my small fold up plastic tables with no storage.

These pages were made using CTMH paper and 2 stickers of the tower etc from EK Success. I was having fun using my new tool and now cannot wait to try the quilting patterns for material and a quilt I am working on. It will be so much fun.

Now I am off to get some house work done so that I may be able to  quilt and scrapbook on the 1st and also on the weekend. I may have some more projects to show by then if I get my act in gear today and tomorrow.

Have a great day everyone and happy crafting!!

Home From My Holiday

I hope you all had a holiday filled with family, friends, fun and laughter.

I am home from Calgary.  My daughter hosted her first Christmas and it was fun.  Definitely non traditional and her brother was very happy. We had marinated flank steak and it was fabulous.

We went to see the zoo lights. Friends, family, a beautiful warm night, hot chocolate and a leisurely walk around the zoo. An awesome sight and a great night.

Made it home and now to brave the sudden turn in the weather.  From above 0 temps to -25 this am with the wind chill. Amazing how fast it can change.  At least we didn't get the amount of snow they predicted. We will have cold, cold temperatures for the next few days. Hmmm.....scrapbooking weather I think! I knew there was something to like about this weather.

I will get some photos of the things I was doing before Christmas posted in the next couple of days and maybe some pictures of the zoo lights if they turned out.

Off to check out the photos and do a few things before I have to head to town.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Some Things I Missed

Must have been tired last night as I missed adding the card I made using a new stamp set from the Holidays from the Heart gift guide and also the bag kit.  I ordered extra bags and made some more tags with the cricut and the CTMH Cricut cartridges.  I made the card a little smaller than in the catalogue.  I think the next one I will make the original size.

I am looking a doing a 10 card workshop and it looks neat. Let me know if anyone would like to attend.  I have enough to have 9 people come.

I also made a tag.  Instead of using the Frosted paper pack I used the new  paper pack Sparkle and Shine.

I made minor changes as I did not have all the same products on hand.

I hope anyone that is getting snow and/or are travelling safe if they have to be out on the road.

Trendy Trims

Blast from the Past

My Expansion

I have been busy as you can see so expanded into my dining room.  Maybe need to convince my husband that I need to add a room onto the house for my scrapbooking. LOL.

Anyway here are the pictures.  I did have to move everything for Thanksgiving.

My Catch Up Post

Fall is here and do like this time of year. Not too sure that I am ready for the snow that is predicted for this evening and tomorrow.

I finally have pictures of all that I have been up to over the past months.  I also realized that some of the post the videos were not working.  I guess I will fix those as well.

All of the pictures in this post are CTMH. I had fun doing them and getting some pictures done from when my kids were young.  As I didn't start scrapbooking until later on I have been trying to keep up with the today pictures. I haven't taken much time to the pictures from.......well 24 years ago.

I hope you are all having a great fall and are looking forward to winter.  CTMH has some new things coming. Check them out.

The projects use Laughing Lola paper pack, CTMH Cricut cartridges, Markers, Frosted workshop, Babycakes workshop, Sparkle and Shine paper pack, Page patterns from Make From the Heart 1 and 2,
and Huntington workshop.  I think that covers pretty much everything.

Fall is Here

Fall is here and Thanksgiving is on Monday.

Our camper is now home and golfing is done for another year.

Time to get back to work on some of my projects and get them finished.  I have some unfinished pages.

I have got some things to post and that will happen after the weekend.

I will have to work on some memory quilts this fall. It is time to get them done before the material rots. LOL

With the cooler weather on the way it gives me the best reason to stay inside and scrapbook and quilt.

I had better go as I have company and the puppy will be up early I am sure.  He ran to my  room this morning and if he was bigger would have jumped on the bed.

To all my Canadian followers Happy Thanksgiving.  Have a wonderful safe weekend with family and friends.

To everyone else have a great weekend and if you scrapbook have fun.

Just For Fun

Hello Everyone,

I have been attending the Big Picture Classes 'Pyjama Party' and they have been sponsored by CTMH.  One of the projects was to decorate a My Creations Kraft Container and then there was a sheet of fun ideas to put in it.  

Michelle has picked one. Here is your fun September challenge. If you choose to do it and I hope you do you can post your project on my blog.  I hope being able to post it on here works and if it doesn't let me know and I will try to figure out how to do it.  I have not done this before so a new learning curve for me.

Thanks Michelle for a great idea.

'Go to and recreate the first thing you see with what you have on hand.' 

I think I am off to do just that as golfing is not happening as it is raining.

Have fun with your recreations and post what you made if you would like to share.  

Have a great weekend everyone.

Artbooking Made Easy (S01E01): Getting Started with Cricut Artbooking

Wednesday, 28 August 2013

Hello Everyone

Just a quick hello to everyone and I hope you are all enjoying your last week before school starts.

I have been away and hope to get some more pictures of things I have done on here.  I had a good visit with my daughter and now can scrapbook pictures of my grand puppies.  Had a great visit with my brother and have pictures of three puppies to scrapbook. More pictures of pets than people I think this past week.  Had lunch with my sister as well. 

I think that the pictures of the things I have done will wait until after the long weekend as I picked my apples and crab apples so now have to do them.  Some pies and juice I think are on the menu.

I hope everyone has a great week and a great long weekend.

Oh and there is another Pajama Party in September.  Go on over to Big Picture Classes and  check it out. It is sponsored by Close To My Heart.

Talk to you all later after the long weekend as canning and books are going to take up a lot of my time plus maybe some golf.

Sunday, 18 August 2013


Thank you to the two ladies that were able to come and check out the new product from CTMH.

We had fun and started creating with the new cartridge.  I will continue and finish the pages that I started with their help.

I can't wait to start club in the fall.  We did get some ideas for club. We just need dates and we need to choose our paper packets.   So many awesome products it is hard to choose which ones to do.

Some of the ladies that were going to come started harvesting and had company.  I are sorry you were unable to attend. I am looking forward to seeing you all soon.

I am in the process of taking pictures of some of the projects and will post them when I get more time.

Have a great week everyone.

Hello everyone.

Here is some information on the new stamp sets by CTMH. I am looking forward to using mine.

Fall is coming and I will be able to scrapbook instead of golf.
Yes, golf has been a priority.  I have gotten some scrapbooking done but not enough.

New Product Fall & Winter Catalogue 2013

I have updated my pages with the new catalogue and some links to the new product and my website.

Check it out and see all the cool stuff.  

Project Inspirations: Ombré Technique

I can't wait to try this.  
Have fun with this and enjoy try different things with it.  I think a little sparkle added while it is still wet would be add a little more texture.
I think I am going to try this over a sparkle set of letters that I have.

Be an Alpha! Contest

I think this is awesome. No more  big binders for the stamp sets.  I have ordered one and can't wait to use the stamp set.

Positive Affirmations for Well-Being

I just thought I would share some positive inspirations today.
I will post some pictures later from CTMH of some of the new product. 
I hope you all have a great day.

The New CTMH Idea Book Is Out

Hello everyone,
You can now see the new idea book on my website.  Check it out.
A new cartridge and it is for scrapbooking.  It looks awesome and I am trying it out next week.
I attended the Big Picture Classes last night and got to see projects done with it.  Awesome.
There are some cool new books as well.
This is the My Crush Modville and there is another one as well. There is also a couple embellishment sets to go with it.


Enjoy having a look at the new idea book. 
If you would like a book or need a consultant feel free to contact me here.  My information is also on my website.
Have a great day.

Thursday, 25 July 2013

Will have to use it soon.

So Excited.

My CTMH Order

Well my order will be here on Friday.  I just love being a consultant as I will be able to try some of the new product.

I will have to order some more in August as it will be available then for me as well.

I am so excited to try out the new stuff.  I ordered the new Cricut cartridge and will be able to try it out next week as I (sadly) have other things on this weekend that interfere with my scrapbooking. The events are fun but still.........

Have fun this week and I am looking forward to sharing the new product in August.

Cricut Artiste Box

This was on my facebook this morning.  I thought it was cute. 
There is a couple of other cute things on her blog.

Friday, 19 July 2013

Get Organized!

I love mine.  I have the small and medium as well and they are great for storing the smaller stuff.
I have the small storage box with the insert for boxes and the boxes for my bling. I love them.

Box Punch by We R Memory Keepers

Box Punch by We R Memory Keepers

I found this so cool.  I love the envelope punch as it is so easy to use.
I may have to try this.  In saying this I do believe I sound like a scrapaholic.  But this is a cool tool. I think you cannot have to many tools.  

You Are Welcome Here

You Are Welcome Here

Good Morning Everyone.
I do believe that keeping memories is important.  I started scrapbooking years after my children were born so I have been playing catch up for quite a while.  I started selling CTMH because I love to scrapbook and love their product.
I have used the workshops to get ideas and inspiration to complete pages.  I have scrapbooked my youngest son's first Christmas in the past year along with other events and he is going to be 20 this year.  A scary thought on how many years of scrapbooking I still have to get caught up on.
I can't wait to use the new Workshops in the new catalogue.  They are awesome.
The catalogue will be available and ordering can begin August 1st. I am looking forward to sharing it with all my friends and family.
Have a great day everyone.

Hoarders video revisited

I found this quite funny because it is so me.  I hope all other scrapaholics enjoy this video. 

I will have some more things to post as soon as I get them done.  I am learning some new techniques and am enjoying the new workshop that I am doing with Big Picture Classes.

I am looking forward to the Pajama Party July 31st hosted by Big Picture Classes and sponsored by Close To My Heart.  It is free.  I really enjoyed the May Pajama Party and making the project.

My Camp Scrap Pages, Cards and Tags

Big Picture Classes and Camp Scrap with May was one of the workshops I have taken.  I managed to have time to do the first week and now am  working on the second week.  I hope to have it done by the end of July.  

Work and holidays seemed to get in the way.  I learned some neat ideas and also it got me using items I had in my stash.  I tried some new ideas and have a few more to try.  I will post the next weeks as I get them done.  There are 3 more to go.  

I like these classes as I will still be able to access the workshop videos and information.

One of the challenges was to use a paper pack with alphabets etc. to make as much as possible. I had one that I won. The products that I used were Authentique, CTMH, Stamp'n Up, Cricut and the rest I have had for a while and are unknown. Another challenge was to use something you had in your stash for a while.

Some of the pictures have been around for a few years.  My son is almost 20.  This class helped get some of these pictures done.  My new album is for family and friends and it will not be in any particular order.  This is out there for me as I always do a 2 page spread and my albums follow a theme. 

Cricut and CTMH for most of it and I cannot remember the rest.

Our friends beautiful daughter on her wedding day.  

The tag is from about 8 years ago I think.

This card is the same idea as the one above just done a little different.

CTMH Dream Pop

Hello Everyone,

Here are some pictures of pages I did with the dream pop paper packet.  I also used a Cricut Cartridge - Life's a beach.  It was fun to design the pages.  

I used the basic design from the dream pop paper pack and then added what I wanted.  I also used flip flaps to add more pictures and slit the page protector.  I thought it would be harder than it was. 

CTMH & Big Picture Classes Pajama Party

I am going to be joining in.  May's pajama party was fun.  
The Pajama Party is free. 
Join in online for some fun and laughter while working on a project.  
Have a great day.

Just wanted to share this cool cruise.

Working Hard

Hello Everyone,
I have been busy working on pages with an idea from Camp Scrap.  You can see where this is on a previous post.

I have two pages completely finished,  a couple of tags done and a third page in the process of getting done.

It has be fun so far and can't wait to see what is next.  I am a little behind. Getting caught up will take a day or two but it is coming along.  I think I may get a card out of the paper pack and trinkets as well.

I will share more when I post the pages.  I have two other pages done using the Dream Pop paper pack.  I also did a card from the same pack.  I will post them as well.  I even gave the card to my Hostess.  

Have a great evening and hope everyone stays safe and sound.  Some severe weather watches out for our area.  I guess we will see what happens.  

Tuesday, 11 June 2013

Neat Idea

I thought this was a neat idea.  I think I am going to try it.  I am going to make a tag I think.  

I will be posting pictures later as I still have to take them I have been busy using the dream pop paper packet by Close To My Heart.  I love the colours.

Have a great day.

Camp Scrap at Big Picture Classes

I have signed up for this class and it has been inspirational already.  I have pulled out a paper pack and organized the colours I want to use and picked some extra embellishments as well. Now to get some pictures, stencils, and mists ready to go.

I have had this items for a while and do not seem to use them.  I can't wait to do so.

Friend, Rain, Scrapbooking

A wonderful day spent with a friend scrapbooking and getting caught up.

Thank you for a great day Michelle.  Have fun finishing up the pages then I can take pictures and post them.

Just need to get one more set of pages to post.  I hope you are having fun making them Wanda.

I think I am going to do some more scrapbooking now that I have had popcorn, coffee and chatted to my daughter.  I got to see my new grand puppy (video chat is awesome) and when I get to visit I will have pictures and then I can scrapbook them along with my other grand puppy.

Had better get off of here so that I can get something done in my craft room.  Have a great day.

June Club and Such

Hello everyone.  May has come to an end and June is just around the corner.

June club is on the 22nd.  I hope everyone can make it.

I have been checking out some things and will hopefully get to practice them this summer and have a bunch of new ideas for club in the fall.

There will be a Pajama Party with Big Picture Classes on July 25th. I attended the May one to see what it was like.  I had fun and there was over 1000 scrapbookers on line for the party.  I learned some new things and worked on a project.  The class was free and sponsored by Close To My Heart. 

I will post a picture of the project once I introduce the idea to my club ladies.

Have a great weekend and the next blog of course will be in June.

Tommy Pages

Our club in May we worked on Tommy pages.

We had fun doing the pages.  There were only two ladies and myself as one of the ladies had to work and the other had an exciting day planned with her daughter as they went to pick up the grad dress.

I hope to get together with them and get their pages done and then I can put them on here as well.

I was as Art School again this year taking photography with the focus on manual operation and landscape photos.  Up early, very early to catch the sunrise.  The sunrise was more awesome that my pictures. LOL

I had fun and learned a lot.  We learned to work with our pictures using Photoshop and now I will be able to make some a little better.  I will have some scrapbook pages to do for this time.  

Here are the pages my ladies did.  Mine have no pictures as I changed my mind on what I was going to use. I still have not decided but the pages are done and ready.

My pages with no pictures.  They will have some by the end of June.

Shirley's pages that are most awesome.

Sharon's pages that are most awesome also.

The ladies sure have style.  It is awesome the way they take the ideas and run with them making the pages their own.  

Next month it will be  using up scraps and using the Cricut. 

Glidden April 2013

A little behind but I am going to be caught up on what I have been up to along with club members.

We got storm stayed overnight due to a storm.  It was a fun evening with the attendance of the scary doll.  The four of us that were not brave to attempt the roads stayed overnight. It was a good job we stayed and we got to do more scrapbooking. We borrowed bedding and pillows from Carla and slept on the carpet on the stage.  Thanks Carla for the blankets and such.

We packed up in the morning as soon as they had the roads open and I had to leave my car in Glidden.  It was one lane traffic on the highway and a little tense going up the hills where you weren't sure another vehicle was coming the other way.

Here are some pictures from that day.
Thanks Sharon Awesome Pages

Our Friend That Joined Us - The Scary Doll

The drifts and snow the morning after.  I could only back my car  up.  Luckily they  had plowed  some of the drifts so I could get my car over for a sleep over at my sister-in-laws.

Awesome Canvas Shirley.
