Happy Birthday Addi!

Chello! This weekend was amazing! I went to the Monster Truck show yesterday, as we do every year and it was awesome! I think it was the best show yet. Plus I got to meet Dennis Anderson! He's the driver of Grave Digger...the best monster truck ever! I even got is autograph!!! Amazing!
Before we went to the show we went to my niece Addison's 2nd Birthday. I can't believe she two already. It makes me sad. She's such a big girl and she knows it. I made this card for her. I didn't want to make it to girly because she is a definite tomboy. She had her party at Bounce U and it was so much fun! Even the adults got to play on the fun bouncy stuff. They had a HUGE slide that so such much fun. Made me feel like a kid again.
All the paper used on this card is from SU!. The ribbon is from Michael's and the stamp set is Cosmo Cricket - Jack's World. I used American Craft Rub-On's on the card.

Happy Birthday Addison! Aunt Meg loves you lots!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Chello there! Quick post today. I have another Digi page to share. I am getting really addicted to this.

I took these pictures while I was in Ohio. I forgot how beautiful Fall is up north. The trees where so beautiful. I really miss the changing seasons but I could have done without the cold weather. I definitely don't miss that.

I made this page with another free kit from Shabby Princess called Harvest Spice. I really liked this kit when I first looked at it but I had a hard time using the elements from it. The layout came out ok though.
Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy!

More Digi Scrappin!

Chello there! I have another Digi page to share with you today. I am slowly but surely get the hang of the Digi scrappin thing. I still really want to take a Digi class of some sort. I need to find a place around here that has one. Like I said yesterday the tutorials over at the Shabby Princess are great. I am loving Digi scrappin!

I used the Happy Go Lucky free kit from Shabby Princess to make this layout. There are so many great elements in this kit.

My First Digi Layout!

Happy New Year Everyone! Just popping by today with a Digi Layout to share with you. I am so excited about this because this is the first Digi Layout I have ever done! I bought myself Photoshop Elements for Christmas and I finally installed it on my laptop.

I was really nervous about trying it out because I have never used Photoshop before. But luckily I found a great tutorial over at the Shabby Princess. They have all kinds of great tutorials there. Plus they have several free Digi Kits. I used Spontaneous Delight kit from Shabby Princess to make this layout.

I found the tutorial extremely helpful. You all should definitely go check it out if you are interested in learning to Digi Scrapbook.

Now I just have to figure out a good place to get my Digi Layouts printed out. Let me know if you have a suggestions. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you liked the layout!

Rangers vs Rays

Hi blog buds! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I have really been enjoying my long weekend. It was a much needed break. I have a two page layout to share with you today. I am still trying to figure out how to photograph my pages so sorry for the poor pictures. How to do photograph your scrap pages?

These pictures are from The Rangers vs The Rays baseball game I went to back in August. It was a must see game since the Texas Rangers were playing and they are my boyfriends favorite team. We try to go to all the games that they play in Tampa. It turned out to be a lot of fun. We had just planned on going to the game with my sister Kristyn since she was in town as well as our friend Greg. But when we got to the game we ran into a whole bunch of our friends. Turned into tons of fun.Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy!

Flowers & Buttons

Hay there! Happy Thanksgiving! I have a really fun card to share with you today. I made this card for my buddy Diane's birthday. Hi Di, Happy Birthday! I was really happy with how this card came out. Lately it seems that when I make a card that I really love it's really hard for me to give it away. I like this card so much I think I might have to make another one to keep in my stash.

When I started making this card I was wishing a had some kraft card stock. I have been out forever and I haven't had a chance to order some more. But when I was looking around my studio for items to use I found a piece! I was really excited! Right off the bat I knew this was going to come out awesome.

I used Bazzill Basics - Kraft as the base. Then I pulled out my new American Craft Amplified paper pack. (Another great buy from Tuesday Morning!) I used the purple plaidish paper from the pack and framed it on some basic white cardstock. I used SU! Pop Up Dots on all the layers. I then decided that I needed to added some CTMH Hemp to the purple layer. This proved to be a bit difficult since I had already attached all the layers together but I made it work.

I made the flower embellie using my Sizzix - Flower Layer punch. Once I cut out all the layers I crumpled all the layers up then slightly straightened them out. On each layer I used a different color ink that coordinated with the AC paper to distress the edges. (SU! - Wild Wasabi & Groovy Guava, CTMH - Hydrangea) In the center of the smallest flower I added in four dots using my Signo Gel Pen to make the center of the flower. I attached all the layers together with SU! Mini Glue Dots.

To finish the card off I added three PTI Vintage Buttons in Summer Sunrise & Melon Berry. And the sentiment was made with Making Memories Tiny Alphas.

Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy!

Thinking of You...

Hi! I've got a quick card for you. I must say I can't take any credit for this card. I made it using the From Me to You card kit from CTMH. I got this kit several months ago and I completely forgot about it. I had to make a sympathy card and I was having a really hard time coming up with an idea. I realized that all of the items in my stash are so bright and cheery. None of them seemed appropriate. I know that this card is cheery but it seemed to work.

In the kit this card is called "Offset Focus."

Below is the supply list according to CTMH to make this card.
1 - 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Colonial White Card Base
1 - 4" x 3 1/2" Sunflower Textured Cardstock
1 - 3" Garden Green Grosgrain Ribbon (I excluded this)
5 - Garden Green Brads
4 - Pop Up Dots
Colonial White Cardstock for Stamping

The sentiment is the only item used that wasn't from the kit. It came from the K & Company Amy Butler AB Lotus Greetings Stamp Set.
