April showers...

... keep you inside! LOL Its been raining for two days straight and I love it when it rains but only if I get to stay home and snuggle up with a hot cup 'o tea, my fuzzy slippers and a good book! I am currently working frantically on trying to get the newsletter out at work and a bazillion other volunteer projects that keep me running!

Anyway I hope to be less busy in a month and start really using my Design studio and start scrapping for myself again! And please know that I will always share my .cut files here for all to use.

Took a break for some fun!

So, I had to place a huge order for supplies for this special order I'm doing and I just couldn;t resist this "Enchanting" paper from Pink Paisley or the Artistry flowers from Prima. I was supposed to be diligently working on my order but this paper was so yummy I had to whip some thing up! I am tickled with how it came together! If you love this paper and flowers you can find it at Lil Lambs Boutique! You can get a closer peek at all the elements on this page here.

It is 62 glorious degrees outside...

and I've got the windows open enjoying the fresh spring air. Rick is off helping a friend move and the kiddos are riding their dirt bikes. That leaves me in the kitchen scrapping! Does it get any better than this? I think not!

I have been crafting, really, I have!

I have been completely swamped with a local order for 12 years worth of scrapbooking for a young lady who is graduating this year. I have done over 70 pages so far and I am only halfway through grade 3!!! So blogging is the furthest thing from my mind! Not to mention the fact that I am gazing out my kitchen window at the river across the highway which has completely over run its banks and is closer to our house than it has ever been before! Which got me thinking - ALL my paper is stored in the basement! I'm thinking I might just have to be moving some stuff to higher ground, just in case!

Any way, I work at our local chamber part time, and every spring my boss asks me to create an invite to one of her organizations annual tea. This year they are doing a high tea and wanted something special. So I thought "self, why not see what you can whip up with the design studio" and this is what I came up with!

The teabag tag has their organization logo on it! I used Storybook cart. for the scalloped circle (welded in design studio), George for the circle and Joys of the Seasoon for the teacup! I used Stampin' Up! cardstock and stamps and the patterned paper is from Prima. I saved this project cuz I can so see using this basic design over and over and over again!

Spring is in the air!

It is starting to feel like spring here, finally! I've been cooped up way too long working diligently on a ginormous graduation special order and haven't created anything for ebay in two weeks! But I got I got a a bunch of Bo Bunny Double Dot (from Lil Lambs Boutique) and it has been taunting me "use me, use me", so I did! LOL! And of course, I used my design studio to set up all the cuts before hand, so putting this one together was so much fun! I love the wysiwyg format of design studio and that I can save projects for use on personal layouts for my kiddos. Any way here is what I came up with. It makes me smile!
