Card Making Process: Say Cheese!

So  excited!  I am getting to play with the new Bo Bunny "Mamarazzi" collection!  I have been waiting for this to arrive because it really fits my personality.   I just completed a chipboard book kit that will be a class at Scrapology in May (photo posted soon!).  Last night I sat down to finish some other projects, but the Mamarazzi scraps were still on my work table calling my name.  (And as a crafter, you know I must answer to the call!)  I decided I would try to come up with some cards . . . and while the first one seemed to take the longest, it wasn't long before 3 more were finished, all using the scraps.  :)

The slide mounts that I wouldn't let my hubby throw away are really going to come in handy with this theme paper!

Scrapbooking Process: Texas Snow!

I leave near Austin, TX, and on February 23 this year, we had a REAL snow day!  The snow came during the day (instead of at night and gone by morning as in the past) so our whole family could spend time in the afternoon playing!

This weekend I was at an evening crop at Scrapology ( and got some layouts finished, including the snow photos!
For this layout, I used Heidi Grace printed papers, the blue double dot paper from Bo Bunny, Thickers for the title and snowflakes from a Christmas Cricut cart.  The inspiration came from a great book I just picked up called "Kick it Up - Adding Spice to Your Scrapbook Layouts" by Greta Hammond and Angelia Wigginton.

Scrapology Class: Flipping for Spring!

Another fun project for a Scrapology class!  I used some new papers, stickers and chipboard from The Little Yellow Bicycle's Fresh Print Clothesline set, which are so springy, sweet and oh so perfect for doing an Easter or flower album!  I used several photos that I took on Easter Sunday of the bluebonnets and other wildflowers here in Texas.

The "springtime" imprint here is on the paper -- I thought this made a perfect album cover!
