Happy Breakfast Layout

Opps! I love this page but I must have lost my notes so it has been getting skipped when I look for things to post on  my blog. Since I am still not scrapping (sigh) I decided now would be a great time to share this one. The paper is Key To My Heart I think? All the embellishments and stamps are CTMH. I remember I was really proud of my journaling tag because I used the edge of my block to make it match the paper. I am looking at the photos and thinking I can not wait for camping weather to get here. We need to make some camping reservations!

Birthday Fun Flip Card

These are some more cards I made awhile ago. I got the Claire bulk paper from the while supplies last list and was excited to use some. Since it was the bulk pack I was not as inclined to "save" it which I tend to do way to much! I made the flip ones with Karen Burniston's die Katie Label Pivot card. It also has some nice accessory dies to make the layered labels. The bling was from my stash. The stamps I used were: A Little Of Everything, Card word Puzzle, and Card Chatter- Birthday. I also use some adhesive paper ribbon from K & Company that I had in my stash. I am hoping to get some scrap time soon and get thru this block! Scrap Happy! Brenda

Snow Man embossed cards

I am in a creative stump!!! My son is sharing my scrap room right now and I can not hardly get to my stuff. I did bring a table and some stuff back out into the living room but I am just not feeling it. What do you guys do to get your creative juices flowing? These cards were made last winter. I got this embossing folder on clearance and I tried a new ( for me) technique where you ink the folder before you emboss your paper. I used some washi tape that was a Christmas gift last year. the stamp is a CTMH hostess rewards stamp, but I do not know the name and I am not adventurous enough to go in my room and find it. Sorry. I later decided to add some stickles to the buttons and carrot nose. I think I like the one on the left best. Thanks for stopping by and SCRAP HAPPY!

More Christmas!

Well how about some more Christmas? The paper for these two layouts is Mistletoe. I often make a layout for myself and then a smaller size with my extra pictures for a family member. I used some Level 2 Mistletoe Assortments and the ribbon that came with the Workshop On The Go for these layouts also. I see that I need to go back and finish my journaling on both of these. It might have been done after the picture was taken but I should check. Thanks for stopping by!
And another layout for a family member.

Project life Style Christmas layout

For some reason I have the hardest time with Christmas photos. I am not sure if it is because I have so many photos, or it seems like the same every year, but I put photos off until last most often. So for this page I cheated! i picked up some page protectors on sale at Meijer ( this was before CTMH had theirs) and made these pages. The title was cut with my Cricut when they had some free cuts in the Craft Room. The paper is Believe and Serendipity. This was my first attempt at this kind of layout but I decided to only make one side with the pocket page protector.
This is an extra page that goes with the above Christmas photos . I used the same paper and added some Level 2 Mistletoe Assortments. Thanks for stopping by and Scrap Happy!

I Believe Christmas Layout.

I took some photos I received over the years and combined them for this layout. It is a nice way to show how big the kids are getting and I did not want to get rid of the Christmas cards. The paper is called Everlasting. I used the CTMH stamps: Santa Clause, and Christmas Delights. the pearls were an old Connection Club Reward. And lastly, I used my Cricut to cut out the banner. I used the scrap from this layout to make the card I posted earlier. Thanks for stopping by- Brenda

Believe in Yourself Layout with Claire

It is almost Christmas and I am NOT ready!!!! Not to much shopping done, no Christmas cards sent, no holiday baking!  We have a house full right now and are busting at the seems! My son and his wife are waiting for their house to close and my other son is also back home for a short time taking over my scrap room. I have decided to try not to stress about it and a few things will be skipped this year. We did put up the Christmas tree, even though it was against my better judgement, with puppies in the house. There was a mutiny when I said I was going to skip that this year.
   I really love this layout and the pictures. We went to Blanford Nature Center to take them. The paper is Claire, and I also used a CTMH stamp 1492. (Sorry I do not know the name.) The tags, photo mats, flowers and adhesive paper ribbon are all from K&Company. The name is Wild Saffron. I used the back of the paper ribbon as a mask for the journaling tag which is not finished in this picture. (sorry Kathy) Thanks for stopping by and Scrap Happy!

Pop Up Son Card

 Anyone else besides me missing the sun? I used a wafer thin die to make the pop up element of their card. The paper I used is Elemental and Jubilee.I used a bunch of older Sizzix dies and I copied my friend Tricia,s idea with the clouds. She used the CTMH embossing folder ton the clouds and it looks so neat!The flowers are from Hobby Lobby. Finally I used the following stamps: You Are My Happy, My Sunshine, Card Chatter-Birthday, and Life Is Good. I cut out the sun with my CTMH Cricut Cartridge.

Card with Triple Play Scraps

Swimming is done, plus the wedding is over, so I thought things would slow down around here, but I was wrong. Work is busy, kids are moving in and out of our house, and we do not have enough room for all the stuff we have here right now! The newlyweds are waiting on their house to close, and my oldest is staying with us for a while. I have lost part of my scrap room. I got to make this card with the scraps from the Triple Play kit I used on the puppy layout I posted a few post ago.I love seeing all my kids, but I hate the mess. Thanks for stopping by and scrap happy!

TBT Izzy as a Puppy

I also use some Irresistibles, and Lots Of Dots alphabet from CTMH. The stickers are from Jolee's.  These pictures are from when we first went to get Izzy. She was so little. And to think she has her own puppies now! Thanks for stopping by and Scrap Happy!

Water Color marker cards

For these cards I tried some water color markers I did not even know I had. I must have got them on sale and did not realize they were water color.I first stamped and heat embossed the arrows with the stamp set Flight Of arrows and then I scribbled on the water color marker and sprayed with water! The top one I added some paper called Sarita. I also embossed the birthday sayings. Those stamps are: Card Chatter-Birthday, The Party In On, and Life Is Tweet. I love the bright colors. Scrap Happy Brenda

Art Prize layout

Well we did get to go down town to Art Prize for a little while one day.  They have it in GrandRapids in September. it is an Art contest and the artist display their art all over the city. Everyone walks around and finds where each display is. It has been busy as usual here with swimming, puppies and a wedding. This page is from Art Prize a few years ago. The paper is Rock Star and the stamp is Urban Alphabet. I use that stamp quite a bit. It seems to be the perfect size. I hope everything is spelled right today because my spell check is not working for some reason. I am a terrible speller! Thanks for stopping by and scrap happy!
