Cardstock by DCWV and Bazzill, Flowers by Prima, Letters by K&Company, Cat sticker by Magenta Style, Rhinestones by Mark Richards, Patterned Paper by Autumn Leaves

These pictures are from the hotel we were staying in while we were in the middle of relocating. Our kitten was starting to get bored, so I made her a "toy" to keep her busy! She will play with anything!

I Can't Get Enough of You card

SUPPLIES Stamp by Penny Black, Patterned Paper by K&Company, Rhinestones by Kaiser Scrapbooks

I made this card for Zack the other day. I just used some of a little cardboard sheet that came with a pack of paper I bought and inked the edges of some cardstock for the saying stamp. Thanks for looking!

Iowa State Fair

I got some new stamps in the mail a few days ago, but I am just now blogging about them! I love these stamps! The one stamp set, Autumn Leaves "For the Record 3" I have been wanting for a VERY long time...but never thought to look online. It wasn't until I was forced to look for stuff online since we moved to Iowa that I found this stamp set. So, I created this layout using some of the stamps from the Autumn Leaves set. It is a LO on the Iowa State Fair.

Supplies: Stamps by Autumn Leaves, Cardstock by DCWV, Letter stamps (foam) by Making Memories and Lil' Davis Designs, Paint by Making Memories.

Sorry for the fuzzy pictures...I am still trying to figure out a way to take the pictures with them not being so fuzzy!

Thanks for looking!

Nature Themed Thank You Card

SUPPLIES Stamps by: Inkadinkado (Bird), Hero Arts (Thank You); Cardstock: DCWV Naturals; Patterned Paper: K&Company; Ink (for stamps and side of paper) Colorbox Chalk Ink in Creamy Brown, Dark Brown, and Chestnut Roan

Good afternoon everyone! I just wanted to post a "Thank You" card I made. I inked the edges of all the papers to make it look a little more rustic. I also used my 1" circle punch to cut around the Thank You stamp (perfect fit!!!) and inked the edges of that as well. I used 3D Zots to adhere the square piece onto the card after the patterened paper was adhered. I used brass brads and put them on before putting the Zots on.

Hope you like it!

Hello World!

Thanks for stopping by! For those of you who got here from my other blog, thank you for taking the time to read my musings! I created this blog as a sort of "gallery" for my scrapbook, cardmaking, and papercrafting projects. Since becoming a homemaker, I have dived right back into serious scrapbooking after a 3 or 4 month hiatus! And boy am I glad I did...minus that pile of pictures that just begged to be scrapbooked (and kept on growing), it has been a joy to be able to focus on what I love doing. I am very excited to get back into the swing of things, and I would love to eventually start submitting my work (and hopefully have something published!) So, again, thank you to all of you who stopped by. I will try to post new projects as often as possible! But first, I need to take a trip to the scrapbook store...I am running dangerously low on adorable scrapbook supplies!
