The End of October Already???

Hello all! I know I've been MIA for a bit again...just thought I'd share a few reasons why!

Marching Band...Brandon! The pride of CFHS!
Soccer...Kelsie and Mackenzie,

A trip to OBX...just me and my sweetie! It was really windy!

A field trip to Cows and Corn with Jackson!

A birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese...painful!

And some seriously crazy kids!

Okay, so there are my excuses! Here is the Scrapbook Club layout for September...and we are almost to October's meeting! We used the Cool Kids Simply Scrappin' Kit last month! So cute! I just love these fast and easy to use!

By the way, have you checked out my countdown to New Moon??? Already have my tickets in you have yours?

Too Kool!

Okay...I have to get up SOOOO early tomorrow and need to go to bed BUT, I had to post these pages I did with Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio! Demonstrators have it now and customers can get it October 1st! It is AWESOME! I did these pages in no time at all with pre-made templates! Check it! Aren't these totally too kool for school??? I mean, seriously! Scrapbooking has never been so beautiful and easy! If you are like me and you like the texture and 3-D worries! Hybrid scrap! Do your pages digitally and then add some ribbon or a pop-up scallop! Sa-weet! My next scrapbooking trip is going to be me, My Digital Studio and a blankie (pink, of course!)!

Hello Again!

Okay, so I realize I am really bad at the blogging thing, and yet, I continue to press on! It has been super busy with the end of summer and getting kids ready for back to school, but alas, I am childless through the day, M-F! I didn't ever think I would see the day! I haven't gotten lonely thus far, but hey, they just started...that could change! For my scrapbook club ladies, above are our pages for August! I gave each of you measurements on a little direction sheet so you should have them handy with your packet! Tomorrow (I know, gasp! Two posts in a row!), I am going to post some pictures of the NEW MY DIGITAL STUDIO! Just some pages I threw together today...EASY! You are all going to want this program!
I LOVE this stamp set and ribbon! We have this new striped ribbon in several colors...including Pumpkin Pie, which is going to look so awesome on Halloween cards and projects!
Totally love this card! This is made with the Razzleberry Lemonade designer series paper and the On a Pedestal stamp set...SO stinkin' cute! Love it!
Our new Tall Tales designer series paper and Animal Stories stamp set...just YUMMY together!
Love, love, love the alphabet sets ANYTIME! They are great for scrapbooking and so much more!

So I hope these cards have given you some inspiration! They are all swaps I did for convention and we have made some of these at my house for Stamp Camp! So if you like these cards...COME TO STAMP CAMP this month! Then you will also get to make cool projects! I am also booking parties for the next couple months so now that the kids are back in school, it's time for mommies to have some fun! Contact me and we will set a date for us to have a girl's night out!

Non-stamping news!

Okay, so this is not stamping related but it is one of my many obsessions, so I'm posting it anyway!  I have stepped away from the stamp room for the last couple weeks, trying to get to end of the school year programs and house cleaning (yuck!).  But Summit released the first New Moon Poster today and it is just cool!  So enjoy!  Can't wait for November 20th!  I will definitely be going so if you need a movie buddy...let me know!

I will try to be back in the stamping suite today to get some teacher gifts done, so hopefully I'll have some projects up the mean time, don't get drool on your laptop from this great poster!  LOL!

Scrapbook Club and Spring!

Here are the scrapbook pages for Scrapbook Club this month!  We used the Simply Scrappin' Kit Love Sparkles...I *heart* this one!  The colors are so pretty!  Of course, I love pink with anything, but it looks especially nice with Chocolate Chip and So Saffron!  On the top page the striped designer paper is 8 x 8 inches and the photo layers in Pretty in Pink and So Saffron are both 4 x 6.  The second page has the pink designer paper cut 12 x 6 inches and then the 3 hearts on top and the So Saffron heart has one of those great new flower brads...LOVE those!

And so I continued the color scheme with my Mini Catalog Swap card!  I just love these colors together!  I couldn't get enough!  Who doesn't love all these new mini catalog stamp sets and that scallop punch???  FUN!  I also used the new designer series paper "A Walk in the Park" from the new mini, and of course, a pink flower brad...cuz they're AWESOME!  

On a side note, we survived all the birthdays...whew!  I was glad to see a busy March come to an end...only to turn around and welcome Spring!  We have had lots of April showers here in Virginia...leading to several cancelled soccer practices and games.  This actually doesn't bother me much (shhhh! don't tell the kids!) because it gives me more time to be at home in my stamp studio!  Hope you enjoy and get creative sometime this week!
