I live in MA with my hubby and we have two children. I have been paper crafting since my son was two and he is 21. Hard to believe where the time has gone. Thanks for visiting and leave me a comment to let me know you were here.
I just adore this Simple Stories 24/Seven line. The Sn@p pages are just so much fun to work with and so easy to work into an album. You should definitely check them out in the Hens' Den Store and get some before they are gone. I missed my darling daughter while she was away at Georgia Institute of Technology studying engineering for her freshman year. One reason that I love scrapbooking is that I am able to live through these wonderful times with her growing up as I created each page.
She was so sweet and so adorable growing up and as my children have gotten older I have wished that I had held onto those sweet times a little more closely. These are some of my favorite photos which are now all in a lovely book that I can flip through when I am missing her.
Now I will have to make one for Sean, may be for my next project, lol.
Here is my post for the color challenge this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown's challenge. I am so tickled to be playing along with these lovely ladies for the month. Thanks for all the love. You can check out the challenge here and play along.
I adore this paper line and was so excited when Charlie from The Hens' Densent me all these wonderful Simple Stories 24/7 Snap Line. They colors are gorgeous and everything is so hip and trendy. I can't wait to show you my next project. I had that song stuck in my head for such a long time and chuckled when I saw this snapshot as part of my kit.
I am so excited to be designing at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this month. Here is my first card to go along with Sketch 15. You can check it out and play along here. Happy National Scrapbooking Day. Hope you are doing something fun.
This card just makes me giggle. I love The Cat's Pajamas Mustaches die set and it works perfectly with this awesome line by American Crafts called Chap. It is perfect for projects for the men in your life. Remember Father's Day is coming next month. I used some stickers on my card that match this line very well by Fancy Pants called Off to School. I love when you can mix and match lines and have them work together beautifully.
I used a technique from the book from Card Maker Presents called A to Z Embellishments for Cards. I used an embossing folder and ink to create a faux letterpress appearance on the central part of my card. I applied ink to the side of the embossing folder where the impression is indented covering it completely. I used Memento's Catnaloupe ink some cream cardstock. You can see the sample card on page 65 of the book which Lisa has in the store. It is filled with wonderful embellishments.
Be back towards the end of the month with another post with this gorgeous line.
