La Belle Layout #3

Happy Thursday to you all.

I can't believe the week is almost over. WOW!!! I am in the process of getting ready for my Paper Crafters Garage Sale this Friday night and Saturday morning. I have tons and tons of Scrapbooking, Stamping and other Crafty items that I need to clear out of my house. I have over 5 Large Milk Crates full of Pattern Paper and some Card Stock. There is a Full size Epson Photo Printer, a Mini HP Photo Printer with 5 NP ink cartridges included. Also an ECraft Die Cutting Machine with Cartridges. Oh and tons and tons of other embellishments, Stamp Sets, individual Stamps, Pearl Pens, Glitter Tubes, Ribbon and lots more. So very busy getting everything out of the house and into the Garage for tomorrow at 5pm when my door opens. LOL

Well enough of all my chatter and one with the the important stuff.

Today is Layout #3 of a Series of 6 layouts that I am posting this week. The layouts are using the CTMH Pattern Paper pack La Belle. I adore this paper and I still have one set left that I am secretly hiding away for a raining day. I did use one thing that was not CTMH to this layout. The flowers are from the Pansy Punch from Stampin' Up. All other items for embellishments came from the La Belle Stickease pack or from one of the 3 CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridges (ie: Art Philosophy, Artist, and Artbooking). If you are interested in any of these cartridges, please feel free to go to my website to see them in more detail or order if you would like to own them.

Well I am 1/2 way done with the series of 6 layouts for the La Belle paper pack. I will have to see Sunday when I have a breather what will be my next pull from stash projects.

I hope you have enjoyed my layouts and that you will join in tomorrow for the next in the series.

Hope that your Friday is a bright one,


La Belle Layout #2

Good morning to all you fine crafters,

Sorry this didn't get posted last night as it was suppose to. Had some internet problems and couldn't get on. So before heading to work this morning I thought I would try again, and wow, I am on the internet. LOL

Today is layout #2 in a series of 6 layouts using the La Belle Paper Pack by CTMH. I truly do love this paper pack as it is so good for so many different types of layouts. It is to bad that it is retired as I only have one pack left to play with and have so many different ideas I want to do with it. Oh well I guess it is time to fine a new favorite.

This layout is a very simple and clean layout, with a pocket to hold a picture or more Journaling. Not to many embellishments on this layout as I used a Martha Stewart Punch for some of the borders I put on it.

I hope you liked my layout for today and please don't forget to come back tomorrow to see the next one in the La Belle Series of 6 Layouts.

Thank you and have a blessed Thursday,

La Belle Layout 1

Happy Tuesday to all you,

Hope that the beginning of your week is going really well. Mine is crazy, but good. Everyday I get closer and closer to meeting my sweet Granddaughter. That makes everyday a bit better than the day before. Though I am blessed already.

On with the showing. Today is the first in a series of 6 layouts that I will be featuring here on my blog. All 6 of the layouts will be using the CTMH La Belle Paper Pack. This is by far one of my favorite paper packs that CTMH has offered. Sorry to say it is retired, but I still have a few sheets stowed away for a special day. I know I am a horrible hoarder of paper. LOL

Happy Late St. Patricks Day

Hope you all had a wonderfully GREEN day today. The weather here in Central California was fantastic. I know we need the rain really badly here, but it was so nice to go outside and be in a short sleeve dress and not need a jacket.

Well we made it through the weekend and Monday. YEAH!!!! Now we only have 4 more days till the weekend.

For any of you that don't know, my oldest is expecting a baby girl on April 18th. Well I am on official count down as of tomorrow as it is one month till I will be a Grandmother for the very first time. I feel like a kid at Christmas waiting to open the gifts that have been under the tree for weeks. LOL I know it sounds crazy, but it is so thrilling and exciting for me. So forgive me if I go on a bit and get a little crazy, but this old lady is to overwhelmed with joy.

Well enough about me, I wanted to let you know that starting again tomorrow I will be posting a layout a day for the next 6 days. It will post here tomorrow evening and there will be a new one each following evening. So please hop over here and take a look at my new creations. These layout will be featuring from my stash, the CTMH La Belle paper pack. Yes this line is retired, but I have a few sheets left to play with as this is one of my favorite paper packs. This year for me is to try to use as much of my old stash as possible. Yes, I am taking idea and lifting them from others, but I am adding my own personality to them as well.

So I hope to have you hope over and see what is coming.

Have a blessed week,

Baby Shower Invite, Shower Gift w/ Tag and Banner

Good Day to you all,

Today I have a post of the items that I made for my Daughters baby shower. In about 4 weeks I will be a Grandmother to a beautiful baby girl. I am so looking forward to seeing her up close.

Here is a 4D image of her back on the 21st of February. She has chunky cheeks and is so adorable.

Well for my daughters baby shower she wanted the Minnie Mouse Icon Head, so for the invites this is what I came up with. I used Stampin Up's Pretty in Pink (retired) for the base of the card and CTMH's Basic Black for the Icon Head. The Bow was done with some Reflections paper purchased at Michaels. The Icon Head and the bow were cut using the Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge. The Scalloped Circle and the Circle are from punches by Stampin Up. The Stamped "R" was a stamp from CTMH's Monogram's (retired).

The favors are Loofa's that are on a stick that was wrapped in Washi Tape and ribbon mixed to tie a bow.

I followed the same idea from the invite over to the Favor Tags. Just cutting a different bow from the Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge for the bow.

The banner I followed mostly the same as the invite, but used the Stampin Up Die for the Rosette's  under each of the letters. The Letters are from Kate's ABC Cricut Cartridge.

Well this is my post for today, I do hope you liked the items I made for the shower. Please feel free to leave me a comment as I love to hear what you all think.

God Bless,

Roxy Layouts

Hello and good morning to you all,

It is Thursday and only 1 more day till the weekend. YEAH!!! I love my weekends when they are full of nothing to do but craft (well except for the chores that I always have to do).

Today I am featuring the Roxy paper pack from CTMH. These were also scrap lifted with a twist.  Again I only had a partial paper pack left, so I only got 2 layouts out of the 4 I wanted to do. I am crossing my fingers that a friend of mine will do a swap for her Roxy paper pack for one that I have. I do have some more stuff that I am wanting to add to these 2 layouts, but I have to wait till I place my next order with CTMH to get those items.

Any who, on with my layouts for today.

Layout #1:

Layout #2:

As I am sure you can tell I am missing a bunch of the embellishments that I usually add to my layouts. I will be ordering soon and I will try to post an update of what they look like when I am totally finished with them.

Well enjoy the rest of your Thursday and I hope to see you tomorrow for my next post in the series of using my stash and scrap lifting to get things done. God Bless and keep you all,

Typeset Layout

Good morning to you all,

Hope that this day is starting off well being that it is the hump in our week. Today I only have one layout to share, as I used up scraps of the Typeset paper pack from CTMH. I am not totally happy with the layout being that it is off in the way it lines up, but I used pieces I had and didn't really pay attention to the sizes when I put them together. Well I guess creative licensing is what I would call it. LOL

This layout I will be using for my youngest daughters school pics, not sure which year yet as I need to figure which pictures will look the best.

So enough and here is the layout.

Hope you liked and would love to here what you think. Hope to have you hop on by tomorrow to see my next lifting project with a twist. God Bless you all,

Pemberly Layouts

Good Day to all,

Hope that your Tuesday is going well. This is my 3rd post in a series of post on my February Stash usage and Scrap Lifting with my own twist.

Today I have the Pemberly paper pack from CTMH. One of this layouts caused me a bit of trouble to reproduce the background paper, but after several try's I finally got it. So just to let you know I would have gotten more done in February if it wasn't for Layout #3 and figuring out the technique that was used and the size of the Butterflies used.

Well enough about how long it took me to figure it out. So here are the layouts.

Layout #1:

Layout #2:

Layout #3:

Layout #4:

Hope you have a wonderful day, I also hope to see you come back tomorrow to see some more of my scrap lifting and using my stash. God Bless you all,
