You mean I should post on my blog? That darn job(that I love) is really in the way.

I think I may have figured it out enough now to actually be employed and still find time to scrap.

So the new catalogue is coming out. I received my shipping notice and will have my cases on Tuesday. I can hardly wait for you all to see it!!

I am starting a brand new club in September. We are doing a techniques club. Even though some of the girls have stamped before the techniques will be simple yet new to everyone, so if you want to join a club, now is a great time.

We will be learning different watercolouring with different mediums, heat emboss, scratch 'n sniff, rainbow emboss, shattered glass, rock and roll, kissing.........and lots more.

Also, when the new catty comes out, I will be hosting a ribbon share. For $20 you will get 2.5 yards of the 6 different in colour polka dot ribbon. If you'd like a bit of each colour without having to pay $20 for each one, this is a great way to do it.

Fourth Birthday

Back to the Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, for this scraplift. I don't have the treading water punch so I used the SU! scallop punch and the SU 1/8" circle punch.

The base cardstock is Baja Breeze, the print is from ski slope, beautiful, beautiful, the scallop is Pink Pirouette, the font is the Taffy Alpha, and the party hats are from Party Harty. Have you ever bought a stamp set and then later kicked yourself for it??? I had the opposite happen to me for this layout. I wasn't sure about this set but I bought it because it was on sale and I thought, hmmm maybe.......I am so glad I bought it. It work perfectly for what I wanted it for with this layout.

I also should mention, I used white grosgrain ribbon and just slid it across my Pink Pirouette stamp pad a couple of times to make it pink.

Shake your Tailfeathers

So I own one Unity stamp. I won it during Hip Hop on SCS. Until I can get more I have to be happy with my ppphm friends who send me images.

This page is of my Chez who wore my clothes all over the place. She would just walk out of my room wearing another one of my maternity tops.

I used Close to Cocoa for a scrapbase, the dsp is retired but it was Western sky and Apple Cider. The ribbon is So Saffron 7/8" poly twill, and Alpine Ribbon Originals. If you haven't gotten your Alpine ribbon yet, GET.IT. It is so much more than just a Christmas ribbon.

Canadian Scrapbookers

Nancy is trying to create a list of Canadian Scrapbookers and Papercrafters with blogs. When you have a moment or two visit her blog here and then send her an email.

Birthday Queen

Working my way through Waneeke's 4th birthday. I figured they had aged enough now that she is 6.

This layout is a great layout for my scrap to spend budget. One of the categories in it is "Old Embellishments". I am very good at using the new stuff I get right out of the box. After awhile, I forget I own it and it just sits there. I found this old old paper. It's the really cheap stuff you get at Dollarama, 6 sheets for $1, I wouldn't recommend it. I scraplifted this layout from Canadian Scrapbooker magazine. The outside edge in the magazine layout was drawn in but I had this ribbon, and it matched so I wanted to use it instead. The brads are silver and I covered the top with mono-multi liquid and then dipped them in cosmo glitter. I was also able to use images from WRAK. This page gave me $14 to put in my spend category.

Let Him Sleep

I think this is my favourite quote for my sleeping sons. I am hesitant to use it though because it is a quote from Napoleon. It is a good quote non the less.

This entire layout was based on the ribbon. I found the ribbon while vacuuming and decided that I would use it that night. So once I had the ribbon, I found an old package of In Color paper from 07, ohhhhh Marigold Morning is my friend. Ruby Red matches the red in the ribbon.

I don't think this layout is really my style but I scraplifted it from the new edition of Canadian Scrapbooker. I really think it turned out cu-ute.

Power's Out

What do you do when the power goes out? I get my kids to wash the table, and then take pictures.

In this layout I actually used current paper. The base is Night of Navy CS, the dsp is Prestwick. I almost didn't use this paper because I find it difficult to find really great masculine papers and this is a really great masculine pack of paper. I didn't have any night of navy ribbon. I didn't have any green ribbon that matched so I went to my go to ribbon of the cattelogue, the double sided satin ribbon. It has kiwi kiss on one side and very vanilla on the other, it is beautiful up close. I have already used one roll and I'm working on another.
