It's a Wrap

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with their family and loved ones.

Now that Black Friday is over the official countdown to Christmas is on!  With those newly purchased gifts, it's time to wrap them up.  I just Love when the packaging includes little touches of cuteness and here are two ideas to add to your wrapping this season.  

1) Add handmade fabric flowers topped with a little bling or buttons.  One of my flowers was adhered to a little hair clip from the November Main kit.  It was just clipped into the packaging so that it can easily be removed and reused.  Love the recycling aspect of that!

2) Roll a tshirt up like a Hogie Sandwich tied with a trio of Ribbons.

I had some scrapbooking tshirts with our theme "Bee Creative" imprinted for my scrappy friends so I decided to go with black/yellow/white/kraft combo.  Taking a sheet of tissue paper in two colors, I just rolled it up and folded the ends to a point.  Then created some quick and easy tags cut from my George cricut cartridge and stamped some polka dots and layered with diecut flowers.  And Wa-lah!!  You have a cute Hogie Sandwich wrapped tshirt.

All about the rides

Last month my workplace sponsered a night at All Star Sports with discount tickets so we took the kids and usually they are all about the arcade but surprisingly this time, they spent the majority of the time on the rides. Much better on our wallets. Paxton was still too short to ride on most of the kiddie rides but this bug one was right up his alley and he loved it!


I remember when my nephews just got this dance pad, Micah had a blast moving his little feet to all the arrows. Of course he'd miss the beat each time but when you're two...it didn't matter!

From Bare to Beautiful

Happy Monday!!!

Today i'm going to show you my step by step process for sprucing up bare chipboard.

Step 1: Lay out the chipboard pieces you want to use and choose the inks, paints, or spray colors that will coordinate with your page. I am using the Maya Road assorted Autumn pieces that came with the November Main it.

Step 2: I inked my pumpkin with some papertry summer sunrise ink

Step 3: Next I used my copics to outline the borders and to draw in the centers for some added dimension

Step 4: And then I misted the chipboard with my new most favorite mist: Mister Huey Calico shine.

STep 5: After it dries a bit I go in with some cats eye chalk and ink the edges some more. Aren't they so pretty?!

For the acorn I used tattered angels Frozen lake" glimmer mist and hunter green cat's eye chalk. Hope you've enjoyed my tutorial, have a great day!

3 Scrappy Boys Sketch Challenge

I love having a blueprint to work from, makes all the thinking stress free! Here is my layout: Fall Fun using PageMap's October sketch.

All papers are from 3 Scrappy Boy's November Main Kit. I was able to create 4 pages and a card and had just enough scraps to complete one more.

Happy Scrappin'

3 Scrappy Boys *Nov Reveal

Hello, it's reveal time! The November Main kit from 3 Scrappy Boys includes 6 sheets of Jillibean Soup Homemade, Studio Calico scrap pads and lots of fun embellishments.

Place your order here. I love all the greens, it coordinates with my little pea pod from last year :)

And how about that that soft yellow WEbster's ribbon?...so pretty

The red Jenni Bowlin doily flowers makes the card pop don't you think?

This photo is one of my favorites from last year. I didn't dress up this year...makes me wish i did.

I've got two more projects to share later on this month. Happy Scrappin!
