Scrappy Saturday

Welcome Scrappy Saturday!
I signed up for the SCT 365 class.
You get a sketch and inspiration for each month.
I couldn't wait to scrap some photos from our California trip and the sketch was just perfect.
I get so frustrated when I cannot get both sides to match up in color and brightness so I will show the pages separately.

I used Oh Deer! retired papers along with some new
The title was cut with the Artbooking Cartridge 
(an all time fave for layouts).
Oh how I love these photos as they remind me of the precious time we had with our son.
That's why I love to scrapbook, capturing memories.
Not to mention, I just love playing with paper, lol.

Stamp of the Month

Here is the first card that I made with the January

I fussy cut the heart and popped it with foam tape.

Welcome Home!

The Welcome Home Wreath Kit is a 
beautiful home decor kit and it is a special this month.
You can buy it for $18.95 or get it FREE with a $60 qualifying purchase.
With the release of the new Seasonal Expressions it isn't hard to come up with a $60 order filled with beautiful, NEW papers, stamps and kits.
Succulents are really trending right now.
It was so easy to punch these pieces out, ink up the edges and layer.
Then you just adhere them to the sturdy cardboard wreath in this kit.
Here are a few close-ups...

Let me know if you have any questions about this unique home decor kit CTMH launched
for National Papercrafting Month.

Scrappy Saturday

Welcome to Scrappy Saturday!
Better late, than never...
I created these layouts before Christmas and was pretty happy
that they worked with my California photos.
This was on New Year's Day when they got the snow.
We walked to this trail which is only about a half-mile from my son's house.
What a gorgeous day!

Sweet Birthday Wishes

Here's a card that I made using the
paper packet and Complements.
I also ordered the
Sugar Rush Cardmaking Thin Cuts Bundle because it comes with the dies and stamps to create that larger adorable donut.

How adorable is all this sweetness?
Really I couldn't resist any more than I can resist a donut covered in frosting and sprinkles, lol.
Have a great weekend!

California Adventures

Feeling accomplished after jumping that creek 4 or 5 times.

So thankful that we were able to end 2016 and start 2017 off with some fun 
adventures in Northern California.
We went to stay with our son for close to a week.
What a blast!
Needless to say, with the holidays and this trip I haven't gotten much new artwork done so that is why I have been sharing CTMH ready to go photos, which I am thankful for.
Now that we are back home again in Indiana I thought I would share a couple of fave photos from the week.
I am sure you will see them again in layouts, lol.

Snow Day

Our final few minutes together at the coffeehouse downtown Willits.
Saying good-bye was tough on mama bear.
So happy we had some time together!
Thanks for allowing me to share.
