This Saturday I was at a 12hr crop at Scrapping Lounge and I got to play a little bit. I created this star chipboard album using my scraps from my previous class. I'm lovin' black sugar paper from Doodlebug, my butterfly die and birds die from Quickutz. I also used some rub-ons from American Crafts and I did a little doodling with my white gel pen. Of course I had to add some bling. I showed this album to my BF and he said it looked kinda Tim Burtonish, lol, thanks sweetie...I think. I think it looks very diva fabulous, hahaha. **This item can be found at my Etsy Shop.**

A Year in Cards, February 2009

This is a card that I made for one of the classes @2Peas. It's a slider card that is held together by a brad on the top corner. The circles were cut out using my Coluzzle circle template. The paper I used was from Colorbok - Forest Friends. Kristina Werner (Garden Girl @2Peas) has a video tutorial on this card class. The handmade paper flower embellishment was really fun and easy to make, check out her video. Enjoy.

Croppin' Away

This past Saturday I was at a crop event hosted by The Scrappin' Table. It began at 10am - 12am....I know!! The store was awesome and I just loved all their products that they carried. But I was a very good girl and I stuck it out and used what I had in my scrap arsenal, I couldn't believe it. I will definitely be back to get a few things I had my eyes I met some new girls and they were hilarious, a great bunch to scrap with. We even walked to the neighboring Mexican restaurant and had a margarita...good times good times.

Tammy made some yummy cupcakes.

The ladies had some fun using the cupcakes as props, introducing "The Desperate Scrapwives".

We weren't all foolin' around, I actually completed some layouts, 4 to be exact. I can't remember the last time I did a layout that had nothing to do with a display for my LSS or for a class. I worked on my Vegas pics and here are the finished layouts:

On the second page I didn't have a coordinating page for the first layout, so I decided to try to make my own. The original page is from a 12x12 Prima paper stack. I had a stamp set from Fancy Pants that had a similar flourish pattern. I stamped several images around the perimeter of the page and chalked it with some red tones. Not exactly a perfect match, but it will do. The 3rd & 4th layouts I completed were my faves.

The paper again came from my 12x12 Prima stack, I used some lace, ribbon from Making Memories, MME border stickers, Heidi Swapp bling (I had to put a "tiara" on my head), and some Prima & Bazzill flowers. I wanted to incorporate most of the pictures I printed out so I just haphazardly laid them on the page and glued it down. I'm really liking it, actually I LOVE it! Oh and I hand pierced the paper with my Heidi Swapp Paper Piercer using the SU! Paper Piercing Kit. Ok, this was a very long post...well I was at that crop for nearly 14 hours!! Phewww!
