Welcome!


I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

My Smash book project - part 2

I'm back again tonight with part 2 of my Smash Book Project.
Again, most of these pages are not completed yet, and on many of them, the backsides are not done at all.

Here is a page on backyard camp outs. I printed the paper using my Imagine Hopscotch cartridge. The Camper pocket is cut from Going places, and the Top ten, numbers, and the list icon are from Graphically speaking.
Here is a page on swimming. The paper is Cosmo Crickets Snorkel. The cuts were from H20. The raft is a Jolee embellishment. I used Bazzil Bling paper on this page too. Also the little alligator was from DCWV SafariKids Stack. Here is the start of some pages about our big camp out to Kickapoo State Recreation area. Here I just used a brown lunch bag as a pocket.
Here I cut the Camp journal sign from Camping Critters for some smaller insert pages.
I printed out my journaling for the entire camp out onto 5.5 x 10" papers. It will look like a small journal stuck into the middle of my smash book.
Here is a page I am working on, showcasing the pictures we went on this camp out to get. This paper is Bo Bunny's Roughin' It.
The top picture is my dd and my bff's DS taken in 2002. The middle picture is a picture of the picture on the same trail. The bottom picture is of our kids taken this year..recreating the picture somewhat. Plus a pic of them being silly. It sure doesn't feel like 9 years since that first picture. Ah.. My Harry Potter page....Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 released while we were camping. I made my DH take me to see it the evening we got back from camping. The 8x8 paper is from DCWV Once Upon a time stack, all other embellishments were from a Harry Potter paper pack and accessories kit.
Here is a very simple page, using just a sheet of craft cardstock, a sheet of white cardstock, some stickers, pens, and brads. I decided to keep track of everything I did one day, just to see how crazy the numbers would be. I am really pleased with how this one turned out, for being such a simple idea. The July 27 was cut from Cuttin' Up. Everything else was older Creative Memories stickers from my stash.
Here is a close- up of the journal tabs on the page. I printed out my items, added stickers around the journaling, and then used a few different sized square punched to punch them out.

Well that is the progress I have made on my smash book. I have used most of the cartridges from my cartridge challenge for it. I have more to add to it, and when I complete more pages, I will share them as well.

Thanks for visiting me today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day.
