Avonlea layouts

I have finally been able to finish some of my projects.  I always hate to post pages without pictures.  I have never scrapped my cousins wedding from 2 years ago (I was pregnant with my son which feels like forever ago).  This Avonlea paper was perfect for her wedding colors and I just love playing with this beautiful paper and accesories.

Aren’t these colors gorgeous and I just love all the extra bling.



The Brocade Assortment and coordinating stamp set make this layout pop don’t you think?


Cricut Addiction

That’s right I said it I’m addicted to my cricut machine and my Artiste cartridge. Seriously I feel the need on a daily basis to get in my scrap room and cut something!! 🙂  If you haven’t tried out CTMH’s new Artiste collection you are really missing out.  It is so interactive and amazing and everything goes together…thats my favorite part.

Here is a great video corporate has released.  If it doesn’t entice you then please email or facebook me and I will send you some pictures of my beautiful baby gifts I have recently made with instructions!

If you love your Cricut you need the Artiste cartridge!  You can call me or purchase it here.

Scholastic Club

Our next club date is August 30th and we will be doing some great school pages using the Scholastic Workshop.  I love this paper and the Stickease that match.

 Here is one of my favorite layouts (There is suppose to be an 8×10 on the left page but it hasn’t arrived yet) using our new Make it from Your Heart book.  I love this and the ideas you get from it.

You can order your own copy today here.

Here is the video CTMH has put together. Lots of fun projects coming with this stamp set!

A very hard lesson to learn

Unfortunately for all my wonderful followers my blogging roll has been put into an involuntary slump.
Unfortunately for me my fairly new computer crashed diagnosis dead hard drive. Yes that’s right total loss which is pretty devastating. I am a pretty nostalgic person and I take a lot…a lot of pictures. I am also the mother of two small children and lets be honest something’s don’t get done that should. And for me one of those things is backing my computer up. TEAR!

(this is how I felt)
The one thing I have going for me is I am fairly caught up on my scrap booking meaning I just ordered my June photos and I hadn’t uploaded August into my computer yet so thankfully the last 6 months weren’t totally lost just July.
Needless to say I am waiting on my new hard drive and figuring out how to start over from scratch.
Here is a quick sneak peak of one of my most recent projects. I am not able to edit pictures until my computer is restored but I think this photo is cute enough to give you an idea.



I Love The New Workshops on the Go

I am Kind of addicted to the new workshops and papers. I really cannot find enough hours in the day to play. I have been super busy playing and creating but unfortunately I cant share a lot of it with you until after tomorrow so…You will have to wait. But it will totally be worth it. I can show you some of what has kept me super busy over the last few weeks.


Unfortunately I am blogging from my iPad so I have very limited photo editing

Create a Space Party

Create a space-themed party for all the little astronauts in your life. It’s simple using Close To My Heart’s Cricut® Artiste collection and the My Acrylix® Outta This World stamp set!  This is so stinking cute and easy.  What little boy wouldn’t want this super cool Space Party?
