Baby + HTML

Before I start, here’s a little html trick… when you post your blog post URL to Blogger (Typepad, MovableType, and WordPress usually auto converts but if it doesn’t then you can use the same technique), Blogger doesn’t automatically convert your link to a hot link. People can’t just click on the URL you just pasted into the comment box. To get to your post, people will have to copy and paste your URL. Well, to fix that you need to type the following: <a href=”http://www.yoururl.com”>Card Name</a> Example: <a href=”http://www.scrapbit.com/2009/02/03/baby”>Baby Card</a> That’s it. Pay attention to the brackets, the a and

Freebie: Paw Die-Cut + Keeping Up with My Goals

Before I start… if you have an electronic die-cut machine, scroll down. I have a freebie. If you stopped by a few weeks ago, I mentioned my 2009 goals and one is to do at least two challenges a week. Since then I’ve been pretty dang good! I have also met my “get two things published this year.” I have a Jan. Scrapbook Trends page published (it’s under the Showcase section) and I have another one this Feb. for an online publication called Bella Scraps. Both have been by accident so yes I’ve met my goal but it’s not like

I Needed Cilantro But…

Some while back I asked hubby to buy me some cilantro and he came home with parsley. He swore he got it from the cilantro pile. Oh well. But since then I never ask him to buy me cilantro. Well today I wanted to make an Indian dish and later this week whip up some enchilada. I asked hubby if I could trust him with some cilantro and in an annoying voice (and look) said, “That was a long time ago. Quit bringing it up.” I said fine and put cilantro on the grocery list. Guess what? He came home

M’s 5th Bday Card

Her birthday isn’t until February but I’m trying to be more organized this year! My first 2S4Y sketch for this year!! No stamps, just layers of papers and embellishments. I used Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon, and Prima pattern papers. The pink fruit, it’s from my Scarlet Lime kit, the birdie and five I cut using my KnK die-cut machine, the butterfly is Martha Stewart and the blue see through flowers are Heidi Swapps. Ribbon, hmmm… I found that. I think it came from a package and the lace behind it was from a fabric store at the KC Plaza. This
