Not ignoring you!

No, my faithful followers, I haven't been ignoring you. I've been busy doing various projects around the house in preparation for my NEW SCRAPTURES DECEMBER KIT to arrive (and it did) and I'm DROOLING all over my keyboard at the gorgeous-ness of it!

I've been clearing a path through my scrap room so I can get started creating with these beautiful papers.

I've also been wrapping Christmas gifts and organizing flights home for my dd for Christmas. I DID go to a card making class - taught by the very talented Michelle Sturgeon - on Friday night and as soon as it's light enough, I want to take a photo of the beautiful cards and show you.

So I'm not ignoring you.. I do think of you often. :-)

A couple of weekend layouts

Am working on finishing Gabby's first year scrapbook so decided to do these for a layout tag I was involved in this past weekend.

a mid-November project for you!

I posted this at Scraptures the other day. Why not give it a try! Pop on over to the forum and let us know what you think of it. If you join up with the forum, you can enter for the RAK!

A friend sent me this link and I thought it looked easy enough even for a dysfunctional 'crafter' like myself so I gave it a try.

No word of a lie. If you're looking for a fun, fast and decorative little "favour" look no further. Even with my lame paper folding skills, I was able to complete the first one I did in 20 minutes - slightly longer than the video at the link above. Deciding to try the "embossed" variation - even allowing for time spent going back and forth between my computer and my cuttlebug (different rooms), the second one took even less time.

Embellishing is definitely the most fun step. You know me with my ribbon and flower fetish!  Wink

Let's see what you can do ladies! From everyone who completes this little project - AND UPLOADS IT TO THE GALLERY AND THIS THREAD - I'll draw for a RAK from moi. Enough incentive? Smiley

Ready, set, FOLD!!  Kiss

Scraptures November 15 kit reveal

This month we got to work with the lovely Basic Grey Pyrrus line. I understand all the card kits are sold out and there's very few of the scrapbook kit left in the store so hurry on over to and make sure you don't miss out on YOURS!

I'm back!

Yes, I know I've been MIA here in blog-world lately. I've come back from a month of travel - first to see my grandbaby and then to see my other babies. Good time but I'm glad to be home.

Look what I've been doing. :-)
