Finally, I am now finished with working away from home that I am hoping to get more crafting in. So sorry for the sporadic posting but its my goal to get back on track.
This layout gave me a little trouble. I wasn’t liking the way it was turning out so I stepped away for a little bit to get a fresh perspective. I am pleased overall with the look but have decided to only do a 1 page layout instead of my normal two page one.
I used CTMH’s Your Rock paper for this layout. I used CTMH’s the works stamp set and Chocolate large for my title. The is some tearing involved with the layout as well. I added some brads and a button as embellishments.
One of my favorite parts of this layout is the right corner where I did most of the tearing. I also stamped two large stars and two small stars, cut them out and layered them together. I used dimensionals to give the stars the added pop.
Thanks for stopping by,

Close To My Heart, in their new spring catalog, has this really cute My Journal. It is a spiral journal that has white pages inside and a sleeve on the outside that allows you to change the cover’s artwork.
I used the stamp set Cherished Flourished to stamp my corners. I used some bling on the flourishes. The flowers were created with the stamp set that comes in one of the WOTG kits Veranda.
For my sentiment I took one of the frames dimensional elements and colored with with Chocolate marker, let it dry and colored it again. I then stamped it with Versa Mark ink and clear embossed it to make it shinny.
I love the way this turned out. It is so me. Now I can’t wait to start filling my journal. I have started to let go of rules on traditional scrapbooking and now look for all kinds of things to scrap. As I create my pages, I will take pictures to show.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Sorry for not posing lately but I have been working a lot out of town and haven’t gotten to see my scrap room lately.
For today, I created a really cute and fast Valentine’s Day card for my son to give to a close friend.
I used the scallop circle nestabilites to create the card. The trick is to set the die about 1/8 inch above the top of a scored piece of paper and cut.
I used the Bee Mine stamp from the Petite Perks set for Spring from CTMH. The cardstock is last years In Color from SU. I added a silver frame around the sentiment.
I used the scor pal and created a little matching envelope. I cut a piece of cardstock 6 3/4 x 6 3/4 and scored at 4 1/4 on all corners. I added a CTMH pink bloom, button and some thread.
Thank so much for stopping by!

I decided to scrapbook a two page layout as a tribute and thank you to him. I used the Felicity kit from CTMH along with the stamp set that came with the kit.
I cased one of the sample layouts as described in the Reflections book and added some additional touches. I love CTMH basic craft buttons and added some to this layout.
I loved the flourish and used it in many places. I added some little gems on some of the flourishes to give it a little something.
I also did some hand stitching around the boarder and in between the diamonds. The little bird I stamped in Barn Yard Red on a piece of white cardstock and cut out.
Well, its time for me to go. We got close to 18 inches of snow and I need to start digging the car out.
Have a great one,
