Just Random

Last weekend hubby said that if people clean like I do they’ll never get anything done. After I thought about it I guess he’s right. It’s day three and the house isn’t any better than it was Sunday when I started. I kept stopping – stopping just cause – and taking craft breaks. The other night hubby was here in my craft room watching Netflix and he looked at my box of cards and said: “You are obsessed with making cards. After you’re done you just toss them in that box.” You know all the cards that I’ve made the

Home with the Jove

Hi! You’re prob. sick of seeing Christmas cards from me, huh? I was going to do something else but I saw this piece of ornament that I cut a week ago when I was testing out my die-cut creation and didn’t want to waste it. The colors of my card’s a bit fall-ish but hey, Christmas doesn’t have to be red and green with some white and a ho ho ho {::SMILES}. The pattern paper’s My Mind’s Eye, card stock from SU, the ribbon’s Martha Stewart’s and the sentiment is my good ol handwriting — not a print out, just

Freebie: Ornament + Embellish Circle Card

Hey, hey, I’ve been BUSY and in a great way…crafting AND using my toys! Today I have a card using Ashley Newell’s challenge, #2, and it’s a circle card with the following colors: white, blue, green and brown. This is what I came up with ((All but the ribbon from PapertreyInk. Ribbon was found at an antique store, 20 yrds for $3 and still made in the USA)): Pretty simple card and I used my Klik-N-Kut machine again. The ornament I made myself and again I am sharing the file (right click image and save as to save the jpeg

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
