Friendships that Last Girl Scout Layout

Supplies used: Martha Stewart border punch, CTMH Chocolate Cardstock, and K & Company Girl Scouts paper.

Bravo to me for using a punch!  I don’t use them often but not I might have to more.  I sure do like the Martha Stewart punches much better than the Fiskars ones I have.  This is one of those blah layouts for me.  I just don’t like it and not sure why.  It’s not awful enough to redo so it counts as one more done…

Baby Calendar

Supplies used: Close to My Heart 12×12 Calendar, K & Company papers, Stampendous Diamond Dot Stickers, a variety of rhinestones (Darice, Kaiser, Studio 18, misc.), and Cricut Lyrical Letters cartridge.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this was to make.  It was something that I wanted to do but didn’t think I could realistically get it finished before the baby arrived.  Thanks to the quick pages I chose I was able to finish it and I just love how it turned out.  On the pre-designed pages, before adhering to the calendar, I used an exacto knife to trim around any extras that covered a photo mat – so that when I add pictures throughout the year I can slide my picture underneath and it will look better (like the fruit on the July page – I cut around where it overlapped the photo mat).  Originally, I was going to stamp the months but after already adhering the pages (with embellishments) I no longer had a flat surface to stamp so I opted to use my Cricut instead.  I plan to hang it in the nursery and have the older siblings help keep it updated with “baby’s firsts” information and photos.  I am going to keep the calendar as is for a keepsake, but if I did this as a yearly thing with day-to-day activities, I would take the pages and put them in my scrapbook albums as finished pages at the end of the year.

Girl Talk Layout

Supplies: K & Company paper, Kaiser Rhinestones, and unknown rhinestone strip.

Layout Challenge: #143 of 210  AND my wonderful mother reminded me that I completed about 15 layouts for her this fall at a retreat and feels that I should add those onto my layout count.  I have to agree!  So that brings me up to 158!

Embellish…your MM organizer!

Gee, this might turn into a mini series of decorating your scrapbooking tools and more!  It all started when I finally got around to decorating these jars.

Products used: MM organizer, CTMH Tickled Pink papers, CTMH Sparkles, Kaiser rhinestones, Prima Say it in Style Crystals, Petaloo flowers, and Mod Podge.

Products used: MM organizer, My Mind’s Eye papers, unknown flowers, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, MM paint, unknown ribbon, Dress It Up Glitter Dots, K & Company Grand Adhesions butterflies, and Mod Podge.

Products used: MM organizer, GCD Studios papers, DCWV Glitter stack papers, Cosmo Cricket chipboard letters, Michael’s rhinestones, Darice rhinestones, MM paint, unknown ribbon, and Mod Podge.

Embellish is defined as: to make beautiful, decorate.  This is exactly what I have been doing with all my scrapbook organizers and tools lately.  It makes my scrapbook room even more enjoyable and inspiring.  These Making Memories desk organizers come in a plain white.  They are nice as is but I have enjoyed making them my own.  I bought one from Crop Chocolate and had trouble finding more after that.  I thought I found a good deal on my additional ones and was disappointed.  I learned that even though they advertise with the same picture and they are both MM, I should have bought the ones that were $40 and not $20.  The first one I got is actually wood, solid, and heavy.  The other ones I thought I found at a decent price are cheap cardboard/chipboard-like.  They are very like-weight and will definitely not last as long.  Christine wasn’t very happy with me that she had to trade with me so I could have the nice one :-) but I made it up to her by decorating them.  Now if Michael’s ever gets my set of drawers in again I will show you some other things I have done.  Have a great day!
