Passport To Scrap!

Well, I managed to visit all 9 stores participating in the Passport to Scrap!!! In only 2 days!! I went to two stores yesterday - one with Renee and the rest today - with Chris!!!
Wow - we covered a lot of ground and I got a lot of cool things. Now I have to put it all away!!!
I made this LO a few weeks back - using some of the grungeboard that I got from my Secret Sister at SSZ. I painted it with the Twinkling H2Os - Radiant Rain. Neat stuff!!! The paper is BG - from the Cupcake line... I love this shot of Cuddles!

Here are a few...

This is for Chris's cousins - who are expecting twins - a boy and a girl!!! I made this wall hanging for my scraproom. I embossed the acrylic flowers, painted them with theTwinkling H2Os - Radiant Rain and then decorated with stickles!
This was a pocket card I did for a challenge...
Using a sketch - I used the core'dinations hocus pocus paper!
More embossing with the core'dinations paper and the new BG Cupcake pp.
Thanks for looking!


After a lot of thought, I stepped down from the DT position at the Scrapbox. I loved the experience and playing with the new paper before it 'hit the shelves' was a lot of fun. I have a lot of different things going on right now and it wasn't the right fit.
I am going to keep my options open and see what else is out there!!

I did make more things on the weekend - just didn't take all the pics to upload. Hopefully, I will have more energy tonight!!

Hopefully, there will be a lot of posts today!!!

Here is the completed LOVE album!!! I added pictures from Easter!
This is the birthday card, I made for my mom!
This is for Lynne - a friend of the family - the new core'dinations paper is embossed using one of the cuttlebug embossing folders. It goes through my Sizzix! The BG rub-on slipped...ugh.
This is for Asha - her first birthday! The card was inspired by a card done by Michy.
This is an acrylic heart. I put alcohol inks on itm then made my own design with stickles! I like the effect!!

SSZ Online Crop!

SSZ Gives Back! For every participant that completes a LO with a flower on it - they are donating $5 to Cancer Research!!! Here is the LO I did - based on a kit from Vicki! We even get a blinky to add to our signature line...

I love these online crops - I get so much done!!! Some LOs that I have been planning to do FOREVER - actually get done. Here's what I have done so far!

This is a punch-it card - just allowing the paper from behind show through...
This is a transparency card - the front flower strip is on a transparency!
True Signs of Spring - from our trip to the Maple Sugar Farm - last year!!
This is for April Showers - I used the new CORE'DINATION paper - the inside of the paper is a different colour. I used my new embossing folders and this is what I got!

This was based on a sketch!

I needed to do a page - like I used to - the picture isn't very good - but I didn't crop any of the photos...
This challenge was to use a photo of a flower and make a card. This flower was in our garden last year.

These last two cards were for the 1 on 1 swap - I sent the first kit to Amanda and the second is the one she sent me!

OH!!! I also made it to the NEXT round of the HOT SHOTZ CARD CONTEST!!!! I have to have 50 meaningful posts and create a card with a TECHNIQUE on it - it has to be submitted by next Friday...I will post it when it is done!!!

Happy Birthday, MOM!!

Hope you have a great day! Love me

This is one of the kits that Jenn gave me to make over at the Scrapbox. It is a kit from We R Memory Keepers...

This is using the new CORE'DINATIONS cardstock. The pic isn't very good - but the cardstock has a lighter colour INSIDE - it is not white - so the blue has a lighter blue inside - great for tearing, embossing, or distressing!

This card uses the cardstock too - I put the blue through the paper crimper and sanded the ridges!

I made my own paper flower and used the Gel-A-Tin stamps to make the flowers.

Here are a few different ways to use ribbon. We are putting these up at the store!

I have entered this card into the SSZ HOT SHOTZ card contest!! Grand Prize is to be published in the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine!!!

This is a card tag I did.Two more pics of Cuddles - he has taken to sleeping in the linen closet upstairs - on our suitcases...
