Productive for the most part..

Well not as productive as I wanted to be but did pretty good with the virtual crop over at My Scrapbook Nook.  Here are the remainder of items I created for some of the challenges.  A name tag introducing myself, a family monogram, a card (more Kelly Panacci products!, look for them at CHA perusing the show...and a layout featuring the theme "timeless treasures".  Had fun making this one, I so love that is it for this weekend.  Off to work tomorrow again...

Playing with My Scrapbook Nook

My Scrapbook Nook is having a virtual crop this weekend.  Still time to play if you want to join in.  Just visit the link above.  There are challenges that make you go "hum" as they make you think about how to incorporate the challenge into what you make.   Here are two of my layouts, the first challenge was to incorporate items that you have not used in a long time. Mine were ink, spellbinders and snowflake bling. The next one was to incorporate "wood" items into your project.  Stay tuned for more, I have three more challenges done that I will take pictures of tomorrow.

Makin' Love.....

I have been playing with the new line of papers from Kelly Panacci and K&Company.  Wow, love the colours, so fun to make not only Valentine gifts from but can be used for general romance and for girly projects...There are so many coordinating products to go with it from bling, chipboard, rub ons, pins, etc.  It was hard to decide what to use and make.  All of these I used multiple items from different packages.  If you like what you see check out Michaels, Two Peas, Spotted Canary and other online stores that sell it. 

Here are two cards that I made with the Die Cut pad as a base. 

Here is a layout, I could not decide which paper to us, so I used a lot of them...and just so you know this is NOT all of them....there are way more to choose from.


and I think this is my favourite, it started off a this....

and turned into this....I love when I find some packaging that is too great not to use again! I played up the graphics that were already printed on the box. 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed seeing these new products.

NVS Challange for January

Come check out the NVS challenge this month and play along.  Always a fun time trying to decide what to do and to see what everyone else does.  Always love the diverse creations that come from the DT as well.

This is what we were working with this purdy, isn't it?

Here is my take on the collage.  I mainly lifted the colours, pink, white and black, but added a few girly hints as well as roses and fitting for pictures of a rat, eh!  teehee

Come on over a play with us...and share what you make, rules are really simple and the is a great prize every month!

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone has started off the new year on the right foot.  Today we are going out to lunch with a couple friends and their kids and then for a walk.  Can anyone say photo op?  \

Here is a quick layout from last night, using up one of those tiny photos I get of the kids from school.  Decided to make a small layout with it, just 6 x 6.  I also used some Websters Pages vellum and some bits and pieces from the paper as well.  Can't seem to get enough of that paper lately.. and I have this thing for feathers lately too!

Well off I go for the day have a great one!
