Layout # 40 2010 Layout Challenge




OK, so here come the cruise layouts, and there are lots of them. For the past couple of weeks, my husband and I have been sitting at our dining room table scrapbooking together. He is working on his Mom's old photos, I on photos from the cruise I took with my Mom last spring. I think it is so great that we share this "passion"!! I will post a couple of cruise layouts here and there, and mix in some other stuff so you don't get bored!
Supplies used: Paper from DCWV Tahiti paper pack, stickers from Little Yellow Bicycle, and gems from Kaiser. Photos matted with cardstock from CTMH and Bazzill.

Layout # 39 2010 Layout Challenge

This layout was super easy! The paper, complete with border, is from Sassafras Lass, photos were matted with cardstock from bazzill, chipboard letters from Heidi Swapp, and ribbon from BoBunny. The colours are more vibrant in real life, sorry for the glare on one of the photos.

81 left to go!

Layout # 37 & 38 - 2010 Layout Challenge




I am finding it increasingly difficult to think about scrapbooking when the temperature outside is soaring to 29 degrees again today! Am I really in Winnipeg??? However, it has been brought to my attention (you know who you are! lol) that I haven't posted a new layout for the CTMH 2010 layout challenge lately.
The "Spooky" layout is a duplication of a layout that I did at a crop in Barrie, ON. Dianna from the LSS "Scraps of Joy" taught this class back in 2005? and I loved it. My son's co-workers dressed up for Halloween last year as Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Bowser and I thought this would be great for his album! Supplies used: CTMH cardstock, patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket, Cricut "George" cartridge for title, epoxy letter stickers (unknown brand), oval punch to create pumpkin, hole punch (3 sizes) from Making Memories, black CTMH distressing ink, and scrap yarn for stitching.
Watermelons is a layout from the cruise I took with my Mom. While we spent the day lounging on the beach, the crew from the Ruby Princess was busy carving these beautiful creations! Such talent! Supplies: Patterned paper from WeR Memory Keepers and Rhonna Farrer-Autunm Leaves, ribbon from Costco and Michaels, CTMH "Big Pink" flower, crushed velvet flower from ??, acrylic flower button from Recollections(Michaels) and chipboard letters from Kurio-K&Company.

Cards!!


For all those just dying to know how many cards I made.........the answer is 69!!! I am not sure if I managed to get them all in this photo, but they are all on the table. I can't wait to get another stack going to use up my scraps from the cruise albums I am working on right now. (One for me, then duplicate pages for my Mom so there are lots of leftovers!)


Thanks Kim and Tracey for "playing along" with me!

Challenge!



I have a tendency to hoard my stuff! Even the scraps left over from a layout! I am always afraid to waste the paper I love so much and think that I will use it on something. So I don't know about you, but my scrap pile was taking over my space! LOL I had to do something with all that beautiful paper. I separated all the pieces by colour first, then picked out cardstock pieces that would be large enough for a card base, then matched up a couple of different patterned paper scraps with each base. This is the stack I ended up with and my scrap container is still fairly full! Now, how many cards do you think I made with this pile? I admit, some of them are not completely finished, but I have the base cards done so that when the occasion arises that requires a card, all I have to do is stamp a sentiment! So my challenge to you is this: get those scraps out, match them up with cardstock bases, pile them up and then the next time you have a few minutes, make a few of them up! You will be surprised how quickly you will be able to complete a few cards!




Anyone care to guess how many cards I made? I'll post the answer and the finished cards in a few days!

Layout # 35 & 36 2010 Layout Challenge




Looking back on my last few posts, it would seem that I don't use the products I sell! Not so, and just to prove that, here are two layouts using CTMH products exclusively!
Paper pack is Topstitch, "Charmed", "Simple Stitches", and "Noted Backgrounds" CTMH My Acrylix stamp sets, Topstitch My Stickease, clear buttons, Bitty Sparkles, chocolate and colonial white cardstock, chocolate marker for journalling. The second layout is from our "Reflections" Scrapbook Program by Jeanette Lynton.
I enjoy reading all your wonderful comments....thanks for sharing your thoughts!
