Summer Layout

Time for another summer layout.  This one uses the Jubilee kit with room for 4 pictures.  One photo well is cut using the Cricut Artbooking.


I love how everything perfectly coordinates together from the various parts of the Jubilee collection.


If you look close you’ll also see some washi tape tucked under some of the elements.  And the colorful banner is from chipboard pieces in the kit as well.  So much fun! screenshot203

Scrapology Retreats

Time for another plug of a retreat business I run in conjunction with CTMH.  This company has been doing retreats for over 20 years and I recently took over running them.  Each retreat is uniquely different with a variety of themes and things happening.


The first one I will run will be in just a few short weeks and there is still time to participate.  But I’d like to give you ample warning to participate in our Fall Into Scrapbooking Expo in November and then our PJ crop in January, with the theme of “Let’s Make a Deal.”  Yes, I may find a Monty Hall suit! HA!

Camping Scrapbook Layout from CTMH

It’s the season for being outdoors and even camping.  Here is a layout I created using the Timberline paper and matching accessories.  I made mats for up to 5 photos.

screenshot198 I’ve showed the background paper before and these stickers and wooden trickiest really compliment the entire theme.

screenshot199 In a recent video on Youtube I showed how to use the CTMH embossing folders to create a 12″ strip, so you’ll want to check that out.

I even used some 3D foam tape to pop up some of the wooden elements and gota love that washi tape.

Thank You Card

Today I’ve tried something new with a lot of color and a lot of pattern.  I really like how it turned out but I wasn’t sure where it was going when I first started.  The paper pack is the country themed Jubilee paper from CTMH.  I used Cricut Design Space to make the thank you sentiment.  It’s a ready made one that I found just by doing a search for the words ‘thank you.’  There are a ton of choices, which was the hardest part of the card.  The overlay is from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge, but I was able to scale it in Cricut Design Space in order to fit it on the card…how cool is that feature?!?!

screenshot196 You’ll then see some other elements layered on for the finished project.  It’s totally a fun card and I’ve actually already sent it to a customer who purchased something on my website!  What?!?  That’s right, I have started sending cards to people who shop with me on my card.  And best yet, I don’t write in them…I write on my postcard and put it inside the card so they can use it.  So place an order on my website and I’ll send you a handmade card of your own!

Letters to Camp

Yesterday I was talking about my Godchild and his new baby sister.  Well this year was the first year that my Godchild got to go to camp all by himself for a few nights.  What’s fun is that his mom and I first met at camp when I was the Program Director of the facility for two years.  Almost 20 years later we are still friends and now she is sending her own kid to the same camp.  How cool is that?!?!  So I had to send my sweet Godson a card while he was at camp.  I wanted something rather quick and simple as I knew it might get wet, lost or every (gasp) thrown away.  So this card is a quick ready to go card in Cricut Design Space.  Yes, if you don’t use it or don’t have a Cricut Explore you will want to rush out and buy one.  You can tell your husband that Dr. Phil said it was ok. hehehe

screenshot194 So this one was really rather easy as Cricut Design Space did everything for me.  All I had to do was pick the papers and I chose the Timberline collection as it has some great camping and rustic features I have shown you before.  Plus the one background paper is stunning and I’ve even used it here as a backdrop to the photo…nope that is not a wall, it is paper!  Yes, I ordered a whole package of bulk in it!

screenshot195 The best part was that he wrote me back a note, though it was pretty short and funny.  I could barely read it and it says “I have to hurry.  See you soon.  Love, B”  HA!  He did take the time to write and his mom is great about making sure he follows through, but there was just too much camp to be had that his letter was short!  Yes, I kept it!
