Party Project

Here is the project we made at my party. It has two sides so you can see the other side in the next post. i had some 9 x 9 page protectors and we made these to hang on a wall or possibly give away as a gift. All my girls said " No way we worked to hard to give these away".  The paper is Simply Snapshots-Floral Tapestry. ( A retired paper to coordinate with the 9 x 9 page protectors. I also used Dream Pops paper, Maya Road Bakers Twine- Watermelon and recollections bling on a roll. The stamps are: Cricut Artiste Kudos, and Perfect Fit-Dads Holiday. We hung it up with CTMH photo hangers.

Party Pictures

So my supplies have arrived and I am So Excited! This is the biggest box I have ever gotten from Close To My Heart. I ordered the large organizer so this box is a little deceiving. It was really not totally full. Lots of bubble stuff but it is still fun to get such a large package. 

Here is everything set up! I am starting to get even more anxious! I have my new Party banner hung up on the wall. (see this under banners).

And here is some of the party goers! I totally forgot to take pictures during the party because I was so into the crafting but I remembered just before everyone left.  Had a great time girls!  Thanks for coming.

Laugh banner.

 Krista gets frustrated because I always am making banners but not for her so I wanted to make something unique for her. I got the Laugh from Hobby Lobby. I was going to try to make it a gray/ blue and I added some reinker to Pearl paint. It ended up silver but I decided that I liked it that way.  I stamped on the silver and card stock and embossed it with black embossing powder.  I used Sweet-Music, Universal Backgrounds, Love Life, Card Commentary, and Star Power stamps. The paper is leftover Recollections  and I used other leftover stuff from my spring and the girls banners. Also just a note I saved the little cup that comes with sweet rolls and holds the frosting to mix my paint in.I made the stick pin and the flowers were cut out with my Cricut. The rosette was done on my sizzix with my Tim Holtz die. I have really got my moneys worth with that die! krista really liked it but now she wants ones to match that sat live and love! Thanks for stopping by and have a nice holiday.

Cards with Later Sk8r

 I used Later Sk8r paper and the Work shop stamp. I also used my artise cartrige to cut out the gears. The tag was a make and take for Son-Life camp and the cards were for my kids. I  used the background stamp from the workshop to make the background paper. I also made one boy card and one girl card with the same stamps. I just love this paper and the stamp. I just wish they had it back when my boys were younger and skate boarded more. Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

Super Hero layout

I used the super Hero paper and workshop stamp for this page. I also used the star chip board shapes and the embellishments that were included in the workshop and match the paper. I do not get as many pictures of my oldest son and I wanted to do something special with these. 
 This one is a smaller 8 x 8 layout I did for my son's book with the same paper and pictures but modified to fit on a smaller layout.

Banner with Dream Pop

So the count down begins.  We are partying this Saturday for my birthday. I am getting stuff ready for us to make and cleaning the house. I can not wait!!!! Remember girls you can get a ticket for RSVP, for commenting on my blog, and bringing a snack.  Two tickets for your order and an extra if you order the SOTM. Plus the first four people to order get a cool create banner. ( check it out on an earlier post)   Okay now for the banner info.  Yes I know another banner! I really am obsessed.  The goal on this project was to see how big I could make the rosettes on my Cricut with my Artise cartridge.  I cut them at 2.25 but now that I think about it I may be able to get bigger if I rotate it on my Cricut. The paper is the new Dream Pop that you can get this month for ten dollars with a 35 dollar order. Add five more dollars to your order and you can get the SOTM for five dollars and also a create banner fro me and three tickets.

 I love the new card stock with the resist designs and to be thrifty I punched a circle in the middle of my scallop where the title would be and now I have some extra circles for another project! Sorry not a very good picture however. I also used some Maya Road bakers twine, harvest Corn. The stamp is Urban Alaphabet and I used some Hobby Lobby bling.  Thanks for stopping by. Scrap Happy!

Imagine Banner and a Suprise!

Well I liked my create banner so much that I decided to make an Imagine one for the other door of my scrap cabinet. I used all the same supplies as I did making the other banner. (You can find that one under banners on the right side of this blog) But I also made some MORE! I told you I was banner crazy. These are for the first few people who order from my birthday party. You can do this by going to my Close To My Heart website ( click on the CTMH link) and scrolling down to the bottom right where it says JOIN Brenda's birthday party. Click on that which will take you to the shopping page. Right now I have four made so the first four people to order will get one. Also if you are coming to my party May 17 & 18 you will get a raffle ticket if you comet on my blog. Bellow is pictures of some of my other banners

Layout with Super Hero paper

These pictures were taken a couple of years ago with our girl scout troop but I was stumped on  how to scrap them. I found some apple brads in my stash and that was my inspiration for this page. I used Super Hero paper, apple brads ( I do not know where I got them) and the letters were cut out with my friend Becky's Cricut cartridge. The other apples were stamped with the CTMH stamp set School Is Here. I t took awhile to get this page done but I am really happy with the results.

Summer/create banners

Okay If you have not figured it out yet I am a little obsessed with banners lately. This is the summer banner I was planning to make. Now I only need a fall one. I liked it so much I made myself a create one. The paper is K&Company. i used my Tim Holtz Sizzix die to cut out the rosettes. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Weathered Wood , Walnut, and Antique Linen ink. I hot glued the rosettes together. thank you Kathy for talking Becky and I into talking to the lady at our crop. She said she hot glued hers and it is much easier.The burlap is from Hobby Lobby and I inked it also. I used my 7/8th inch circle punch and the stamp set Serendipity for the letters.I also used CTMH Just Blooms-Flutter and Color-Ready Garden wooden Shapes.  I am really excited about how this turned out.  I keep telling my husband and daughter\ to look at it. In Krista's own words" This is getting annoying"  LOL so I am really excited to share this! I even think my pictures turned out! One of the few things that was not made in the middle of the night and I had daylight to take photos.

Another 8x8 layout

I found these pictures going thru my mom's stuff after she passed away and I am such a nut I can not throw anything away. I decided these would be great for the boys book. The paper is Tinkering from CTMH. and the stickers are those Bo-Bunny ones that I was using up.  I might put a title on the first page but am not sure what to say. Man what a cutie Andrew was! Thanks for stopping by.

8x8 layout

I went to a crop last weekend and my goal was to work on the boy's books.  These pictures are older ones I found sorting Thru my pictures looking for pictures for a friend who's dog pasted away.  The stickers are Bo Bunny and I have had them around for quite a while. The rub-ons also are old.  I was happy to use some of my stuff from my stash.
