After another productive scrapbooking crop here at my house, I have more cards to share! It seemed as though I could locate nothing that we needed in my craft room last night, so I chose to keep my cards simple so as not to overwhelm myself. Ha! Plus, there was the most adorable baby girl (we all love Shelby) who I just had to hold every time she made a peep.
Supplies used: Die Cuts with a View (cards), Bazzill (textured cardstock), Doodlebug Designs (patterned paper, rubber stamps), American Crafts (markers)
I am not a huge fan of mini albums, but I love these Fancy Pants Bracket Albums. The shape is adorable and I think they will be very popular at the upcoming craft shows. I cannot wait to make a whole bunch more of these!!!
Supplies used: Fancy Pants Designs (acrylic pieces, rub-ons, patterned paper), Die Cuts with a View (textured cardstock), Stickles (glitter glue), Prima (flowers)
Okay, so it seems like I've been slacking where the blog is concerned. It's been VERY busy around here. Fortunately, I've completed lots of projects and have taken the pictures of most of them. Tonight I'll upload some new projects, I promise! We have family portraits this afternoon so wish us luck...Nathan never smiles for strangers!!!

It's craft fair season and I need to get my behind in gear! I have to make a bunch of paper bag albums, cards, altered items, etc., to sell at the upcoming shows. Since I also had to entertain my boys while crafting yesterday, I kept to small projects. With the help of Play-Doh, crayons and Color Wonder products, I was able to complete two jumbo clothespins and a handful of Christmas cards. Here's the Christmas clothespin just waiting to display your favorite holiday photo!

This great chipboard album is from Creative Imaginations' Bare Elements line. I love all things chipboard!!! I just finished this project last night while my hubby was off buying Cold Stone ice cream. Yummy! Nothing motivates me to complete a task quickly like the sweet reward of coffee ice cream.
I have no idea who makes the patterned paper that I used for this album. I remember buying it a few years ago at Michaels. Since it was 8" X 8" paper, it just sat in a stack of other similarly sized paper until I pulled it out for this project.

Or maybe 20 minutes. It's hard to say since I had both of my boys sitting across the table from me playing with Play Doh while I completed this quick layout. Can you believe I scrapbooked with a solid white background? It surprised me! I even wrote the little details out by hand! I never visibly write on my layouts. I was very determined to complete this layout quickly that afternoon.
Supplies used: Bazzill (cardstock), Die Cuts With A View (patterned paper), Daisy D's (flowers), Scenic Route (chipboard), Provo Craft (die cut machine).

I swear that I am a scrapbooker. What is with all of these cards? Suddenly, all I want to do is make cards! I think it's because I can finish so many, so quickly.
At yesterday's scrapbooking crop here at my house, I finished one layout and made these two simple halloween cards. Only 34 more halloween cards to go!

If you are anything like me, you have tons of scrap paper on hand at any given time. I'm usually pretty good about digging through my solid scraps when I need to cut something on my Cricut or need just a splash of color on a layout. My patterned paper scraps, on the other hand, sit neglected most of the time. This is a very simple card that I have made many times before using different patterned scraps to suit a variety of themes. This particular card is another sample for one of my upcoming card workshops. Everyone has scrap paper...I figured everyone should make this simple card so they can duplicate it at home to use up their stash of scraps too!
