All Clean!

Here are my three little animals

Cute Little Stationary Box

Another CTMH consulant in the area, Amy Hansen shared this idea with us and I had to make my own. It was really fun and I think that I will be saving it for Anna's teacher for her end of the year present. It is a little box that holds 6 cards, 4 tags and 4 note cards along with a little address book, a pocket for stamps and a pen holder.

We Survived the Deep Freeze

After strep throat, ear infections and bronchitis we are all becoming healthy again, just in time for the heat wave this week, yeah it is going to be 30 degrees!! I have been able to do a lot of crafty things though being home bound so I guess that makes up for all this nasty nasty weather.

Did anyone get any Whitman's Chocolates this Christmas??? That is what I made this card box out of! Very easy I just covered it with CTMH's Emporium paper and added a little jewels and some dimensional elements letters and now I have a card box.

This is a card that I made using some of CTMH's new spring stamp sets, D1330 Connections(the pink images), and D1320 Adoration (the hearts) I used Chocolate, Watermelon and Bamboo Ink and the Patterned paper is from the Caprice Lvl 2 paper packet

Here are two layouts that I made using the Emporium Lvl 1 kit, they were so easy to do and took me about 15 minutes to complete which is great!!

Finally here are two layouts I did using the Key To My Heart Lvl 2 paper packet (this is the special paper packet and stamp set that is available only until January 31st). I also included CTMH's new Floral Botanical die cuts. I love this picture of the girls at Grandma's house waking up to see a hot air balloon in Grandpa and Grandma's back yard!

Hudson's Scrapbook Pages

I have been working on my baby boy's scrapbook, trying to get all of the details of his first year of life done by his birthday which is the 30th. I have a huge stack of pictures sitting on my desk and it is so hard to decide which ones I want to scrap if I did them all his book would weigh about a hundred pounds!! These are some of the pages that I have just finished.
Here he is with his big sisters I love these pictures of him, his little face is so funny!! I used CTMH's Good Times lvl 2 paper packet along with the Good Times lvl 2 stickers. The big letters are American Craft stickers. I used page maps sketches for these layouts.

Here are the pages that I have just completed of his first bath at home. I used CTMH's Crystal Blue cardstock for the base pages and CTMH's Cocoa cardstock for the big circles. The patterned paper is paper studio and so is the ribbon. The letters are American Craft stickers, I love these they are so easy to use and I love the way they look.

Here is my first post, it has to be of my babies who inspire me the most, who wouldn't want to scrapbook every picture of their cute little faces???
