A Scrapbook Page!

It has been a ridiculously long time since I posted a scrapbook page. Honestly, it’s been a ridiculously looong time since I’ve scrapbooked! That is so going to change for a couple of reasons that I’ll explain in a moment. This page is actually one I did several months back. In fact, I used the Merry Moments Simply Scrappin’ kit from the Holiday Catalog last year. How about I show you the first two pages I designed with this kit today and the other two in my next post? Sound good? So back to why I will be scrapbooking more… first, is because I just signed up to attend a scrapbooking weekend in June for the first time in years (as a scrapbooker NOT a vendor)! To say I’m excited is an understatement. I miss scrapbooking. That was my original passion and now that I’ve inherited hundreds and hundreds of photos (honestly it’s probably more like thousands), I can’t wait to start making some pages! The second reason why I’m going to be doing some scrapbooking in the very near future is because I’m launching a monthly Scrapbook Club! I’m so excited about this. I tried this years ago, but

Insomnia…

I hate when I get insomnia! I’m fortunate that it doesn’t happen very often, but I honestly don’t think I have slept a wink tonight. It’s ten minutes to 5 (a.m.) and I’m playin’ on the computer already (and those of you who know me, know I’m NOT a morning person). I’m hoping I survive today as I have a 12-hour day at Crop on the Cape this afternoon and evening. Yesterday was fun. It was a short day for the first day of the event from 6 to 10, but it FLEW by. Now I’m trying to clean up my scrap room a bit while it’s a bit emptier than usual! The cards in this post are from another card and scrapbooking kit I created for the Crop. It uses one-half of the Simply Scrappin’ kit to make 12 cards and two scrapbook pages. You can see some of the designs from my previous version here. I’m watching the early news this morning and they just said that the rain is supposed to turn to snow later today??? What? Isn’t it spring now? I’m just not accepting that snow is possible! Hopefully they meant in Boston. lol! Anyway, I

Another dreary day…

I thought you might enjoy seeing a few bright and cheery cards today since it is day number four of the lousy weather! I actually made these cheery cards with one-half of the Petal Party Simply Scrappin’ kit. I love these kits… they are filled to the brim with product! I made 12 cards and 2 scrapbook pages from just HALF of the kit — so that means with a full kit you could make at least 24 cards and 4 scrapbook pages for just $19.95! The best part is that you don’t really have to think much about it because everything coordinates. I made these cards as a kit that I’m planning to sell at the Crop on the Cape event in a couple of weeks. It will include pictures of each of the cards and pages, a supply list and various added embellishments such as ribbon, brads and rub-ons. I’m working on a second kit using the Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin’ kit, too. I’m just addicted to making these quick and easy cards! Check out a few more that come from the Petal Party kit: As you can see, I took these photos last week when we were
