25 Cards - CTMH Cats and Bats (process video)

Hi Paper Crafters,

It is Halloween night and I am here to share with you all of the cards I have created in the past week and a half from the Close To My Heart, Cats and Bats paper pack. These cards started out as Halloween cards for my latest card workshop. My patterns came from the Workshops Your Way guides for the Cats and Bats scrapbooking kit. You can see how I changed the theme to apply to other events within a year, not just for Halloween. I like to share with you the versatility of the products you can purchase through my Close To My Heart Independent Consultant website.

Thank you for watching :-)



Enjoy!

12x12 2-page Scrapbook Layout #43 - Programmed to Learn (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

I have collected a few pieces of robot themed patterned paper along the way due to liking the gear images. I guess I have a bit of a liking for the steampunk look. Working on my school themed scrapbook I came across a new cut file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, Programmed to Learn. It works great with the patterned paper I found at Craft Warehouse's buy 4 for $1. The robots are adorable, especially the mini robot.

A shout out to all of you for your continued support and a huge thank you for all the new subscribers... Welcome!




Enjoy!

Paper Crafting Haul - October 2017

Hi Paper Crafters,

It's my after-birthday week and I am here to share my personal paper crafting haul where I treated myself to some goodies in celebration of, well, ME of course. LOL

Coming up soon, I have a paper piecing project in the works for my school themed album. The video and post should be up by early next week. I have been busy hanging out with my mom this week as she had come to stay with me while my husband was on a business trip.

We started her stay by celebrating my birthday on the 14th with lunch out, two escape rooms and dinner out with my family. It was a great day. I believe we are all hooked on the escape room concept. We completed both rooms within the hour allotted. Yay team Ferguson and mom Wilson!

Leading up to my mom's visit we had established a "bucket list" of things to do while together... I can report we did accomplish most, if not all, of the tasks. We added in a few other spontaneous tasks with other family members throughout the week. An evening hanging out with my grandson. My MIL stopped by to pick up some fabric we had purged from my supply. Lastly was candy making with my youngest son and a first... A zombie movie (mom nor I had ever seen one, yikes!)

Thank you everyone for a great birthday!


Enjoy!

Hi Paper Crafters,

Just a quick pass check in today with my latest Halloween single page layout using "Booble Bath" from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. This file was a past freebie, so it is no longer available.

12x12 Single page Scrapbook Layout #40 - Boo Bat (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Working on some Halloween layouts for my design team work with Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. Today's project is a single page layout using the "Boo Bat" cut file. The background papers have been in my stash, so I am not sure who to credit. My paper piecings are cut from Close To My Heart cardstock. All inks used for edge distressing are CTMH.

12x12 2-page Scrapbook Layout #39 - Pumpkin Spice Goodness (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Happy World Card Making Day! I am not here to share a card, but I did create a scrapbook layout using the "Pumpkin Spice Goodness" cut file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. This is the third project I have created using these images. When I take the time to edit and cut my paper piecings, I like to go ahead and cut 1-3 of each image for making multiple projects to share the different ways the images can be used. Be sure to check out my first two projects shared on my blog.

A video is up on YouTube of my assembly for this scrapbook layout. It was a bit emotional to view the playback as I shared some sad news... We have lost our amazing calico cat, Callie. She has not come home since I let her outside after work on September 26. Her sister, Allie, is slowly coming out of her own grieving, but it has been hard. Everywhere and everything here in the house reminds me of my best friend, Callie. With my chin up and Allie by my side, these last few projects have been made while remembering our friend, Callie. Please keep positive thoughts for her safety and return home. Thank you.





Enjoy!

Welcome October - Pumpkin Spice Goodness (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Today is the first of October. I am an October baby which I think is a good thing seeing how much I love the fall colors, pumpkins and all things pumpkin spice. Once again I have taken a Little Scraps of Heaven Designs cut file to decorate my craft room frame. The file used is the "Pumpkin Spice Goodness."

Join me this month as I begin creating Halloween projects and as I continue to work on my school themed scrapbook. Always feel free to share what you are creating...


Enjoy!
