Freebie: Butterfly Die-Cut Template

Hi! I made a card AND used my Klik-n-Kut. I’ve been wanting to cut out a butterfly for awhile and last weekend at the expo I saw this acrylic butterfly that was part of a scrappy kit. Well, I didn’t want the kit, just not my style, but the lady wouldn’t sell me just the acrylic butterfly. She said there’s probably one somewhere in the expo I can buy individually <– NOT helpful, lady! So last night after all the kids have gone to bed Savitri went to work and I got this: Feel free to download the files (if


Wish it was mine! This page was M in Indonesia getting her first 30 min. massage. Oh she loved it and it was so inexpensive – $1.50 I think. I wish I had gotten a better picture but this is it. It’s the memories and stories that counts right when you’re scrapbooking? It’s stamp night again. I haven’t gone to an SU stamp night at my upline in ages!! We’re doing a card swap too but I’ll show you mine tomorrow. The interesting part… I didn’t use any SU stamps… just card stock. Oh well, it’s never strict. Tomorrow I

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 wish it’d be me turning 25, ha! I can’t tell you who this card’s for. I’m not sure if she reads my blog. Well, I had my 20-weeks appt. and everything is great. I have gained a whoopin’ 11 lbs, finally starting to show, but not quite fitting into my old maternity pants yet. They’re the pants with buttons on the sides to expand but even the smallest ones are too big still. I think I need to get me some of them band ones. My regular pants are getting too tight… my butt’s definitely getting bigger if nothing

Celebrate 35

Not my 35th, a friend’s {::SMILES}. I used Kristina’s colors for this week: chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, taken with teal, certainly celery, and white. The card is for a guy and I thought the colors are appropriate. I added the ribbon because I love it and also because I know he wouldn’t mind it either. He’s a very sentimental kind of guy; he even went to a crop with me once. No, he’s not gay, he he… For the shape behind the number and the numbers themselves, I used my Klic-n-Kut. I finally dug it out again after putting it

Happy Weekend!

First of all thank you so much for the congrats!! We are very very excited and cannot wait to meet the little person. A few have asked me if we’re going to find out about the gender. Well, we’re thinking about it. This is our plan for now… since our insurance doesn’t pay for ultrasounds (the military’s funny, they pay 100% but no ultrasound unless it’s medically needed), we’re going to do the 3D one at 20 weeks-ish and just take a peak and have the person put the info in an envelope. Then, we’re either going to make it
