Where to next???

Off to the Netherlands, Belgium, and Dublin on my next journey.  

Inspired by Italian Food...

A little Sugar helps the Medicine Go Down...

Just a little "Get Well Soon!" card.  I fell in love with this Lawn Fawn Stamp set.  I stamped on white paper and layered on orange for the Rx bottle.  I pop dotted them up and used my qk die for a background and side banner.  Thanks for looking!

Pearls, Bows, and Glitter

Whipped up this little sweetie for a friend.  "Thank You" die cut is from Cottage Cuts and doily is a QK die cut.  Just picked up this mason jar paper and it was too tempting to cut them out! :) I found out an easy way to add a thick layer of glitter---a gluestick! Who would have thought! Thanks for looking!

When in Rome

Working on my Italy/France/Spain album recently.  I made sure I bought Florentine paper and stickers. I am loving re-living all the memories I made during my 2 week European vacation!

Love her!

My little love. I think she likes to scrapbook as much as me! Too many little embellishments to play with!

Cigars Anyone?

 My brother, Pat, is getting married and he asked me to help him label his cigars in a way that he could ask his friends to be in his wedding. Their wedding is burlap/barn/vintage themed so I used burlap paper that I edged with a scalloped scissors.  I printed off the sayings and punched them out with my scallop circle punch. I wrapped these puppies around the cigars and there you have it!  I hope all his friends said "yes!".  :)

Inspired in Italy

Walking the streets of Italy-I peeked into this storefront of this artist's studio.  I found it a beautiful mess-kind of like my scrapbooking studio! :)

Beautiful chalk art on the streets of Florence.  How did they do that??

Couldn't be more PERFECT!

Bittersweet that Archiver's is closed, but I was able to buy and bring home a piece of it that I will have forever. My own Archiver's workshop table!!! Lots of memories with this table-as an employee and as a customer!

Running in the Fields of Bavaria

Working on the scrapbook early today! I added journaling in the little envelope and broke out my metal accents to add to my page! All paper and stickers are from October Afternoon. Thanks for looking!

Organizing with Flare

This was inspired by Pinterest, but with my own twist.  It started with a mountain of paperwork that needed to be dealt with.  I saw binders like this on Pinterest and decided I had nothing to lose, but the clutter.  I organized that mountain into categories and then decided how many binders I would need.  At Walmart they have very cheap binders on sale right now.  This project looks complex but it is VERY simple to do.  It took me about an hour.  I picked out some paper for 9 or 10 binders and used my die cuts to label them.  All you need are binders, straight edge cutter, and font (wether that be stickers or die cuts).  Get organized! It made me feel great when I was done! :) I dare you to try it.

Europe: Round Two

Airplane page for my second trip to Europe.  This time I explored Austria, Holland, and Germany.  I finished 6 scrapbook pages so far-many more to go!  Trying to get this done before I go to Italy, Spain, and France in 3 weeks! :) #Blessed

Never can have too many Thank You Cards!

I made nine of these puppies today.  I am loving this Archiver's exclusive stamp and die jar set, very simple yet sweet!

Very sad to see Archiver's is closing all of their stores. Silver lining is that I bought one of their heavy duty workshop tables for my studio!!!! Yay!

Word on the street is that October Afternoon is opening up a regular scrapbook store in MN. DREAMY!

Pinkles' First Haircut

Not sure who is more shocked after going to the vet-baby Pinkles or Momma!
