Feeling crafty

I've been in such a crafty mood this week! Surprisingly, I've only done one digital scrapbooking page, but I did do this fun little projcet:


These are magnets I made for my mom for her birthday. I think they turned out super cute! I mod podged paper onto chipboard shapes and then added embellishments with the glue gun. After that, I stuck a magnet on the back (also with the glue gun) and they were ready to go! Super easy!

As for the digi scrapping I did this week, I used Erica Zane's new kit, Sweetest Days. I love the colors in this kit!

And here's the page I did with it:
Old Orange Truck

I did this page for the Grand Theft Layout Challenge at Scrap Matters and I lifted Puddle Jumper by nockosh.

I'm going to be moving this week (and I still have LOTS of packing left to do!), so I'm not sure if I'll get an other post in any time soon. We'll see.

It's been a while.... (template freebie!)

I think it's about time I offered another template, don't you? Of course you do. :)

I loved my Forever Family layout (see previous post) so much that I figured I'd make it into a template. So here you go...

Enjoy! Don't forget to leave me some love if you like it! :)


It's that time of year when the love-themed kits start coming out. It can be a bit challenging using these kits for boy pages, but I did two pages this week and I'm really pleased with them.

For the first page, I used Heart's Content by Erica Zane and Denise Beatty Originals. I love how this kit has more than the traditional Valentine's Day/Love colors.


Sweet Valentine

For the second page I did this week, I used Sarah Bennett's beautiful new kit, Love You Always. This is a gorgeous kit with a vintage feel to it, and I really love this page I did. So much, in fact, that you just might want to check back for a template. *hint, hint* :)

I participated in a couple of Scrap Matters challenges last week...

The first was the Saturday Special (I've been loving that challenge lately!). Amanda showed us a great way to do extractions. I've also been dying to use this super cute kit, Bumps and Blahs, by Kaye Winiecki.

Pink Eye

The other challenge I did last week was the Matter of Snap Challenge. The challenge this month is silhouettes.


This gorgeous kit is Resolutionary by Stolen Moments. It's always fun for me to be able to do a more girly page. :)

Happy New Year everyone!!!
I hope this year brings you all happiness, health, and success!

Scrap Matters is having a sale today and tomorrow to celebrate the arrival of 2010, so now is a good time to stock up those cute kits you've been eying!


There is also a new Project 365 challenge at Scrap Matters! If you've ever wanted to try a 365 project (a picture a day for a year), participating in a challenge like this is a great way to stay motivated! If a picture a day is too much, you could try a 52 week challenge instead.

Last, but not least, I did a couple of layouts this week:

For this two pager, I used a template by Britt-ish Designs from her 2-Pagers: set 4 template pack and a SUPER CUTE kit from Jennifer Barrette Designs called Baked Goods. I've been dying to use this kit, and making cookies for Santa was the perfect excuse! :)

I also did a page for the Word Up challenge at Scrap Matters and I used O Come Let Us Adore Him by Chelle's Creations. The little felt nativity people in this kit are SOOOOO adorable!
