Scrapbook Layout - Mom's Day

Not sure why the video is posting like this but if you click on the arrow it plays just fine. But first, I have to introduce you to my scrapbooking helper. He's a pooped out puppy. This is my mini schnauzer "Gunther". I had put my book on the floor next to me...where he usually lays...and next thing I knew he was napping on on it. Dang. I want to be a dog.






Thanks for stopping by!

Fantabulous Cricut Cartridge Blog Challenge - Celebrate Mom

Hi there all you crafty people!
I made this card....tag..."cag" for my mom for Mother's Day. I thought it would be fun to share for the FCCB challenge "Celebrate Mom".

Here's what I used to make it:
Cricut Cartridge: Wrap It Up. I used the Cricut Craft Room to design the size to be 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I welded the shadow cut and the base cut together to make a card.
Paper: Card Base: White Colorbok (Walmart)
           Blue: Stampin Up www.pausedreamenjoy.blogspot.com
Flowers: Recollections
Sentiment Stamp: CardzTV www.cardztvstamps.blogspot.com
Bird Stamp: Inkadinkado. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink pens and my clear Wink of Stella pen.
Ribbon: Ofray and Celebrate

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a sun shiny day!

Hello

Hello? Hello? Oh my gosh it seems like it's been such a long time since I stopped by the 'ol blog to say hi!

I've been working on the cards for Operation Write Home www.operationwritehome.org and will be posting a video on Monday for all the cards that I've made.

I wanted to also say Happy Mother's Day to all you moms. I hope that you're day is exactly what you want whether it be a spa day, a day with family, or just about anything you want. I'm not sure what my boys have planned. I've hinted that I love flowers and an Amazon gift card would be very nice.

My mother-in-law has been recovering quickly from her fall. She resting and gaining her strength in a nursing home. We all hope she'll be able to go home. They'll be needing to do some physical therapy.

My mom will be coming to stay for a week starting the 15th so we'll be celebrating our special day together then heading up to my Grandma's for her 97 birthday. I sent my mom a gift (the frame with the quilling and CardzTV stamp that I did for the design team project) and a homemade card. She opened it up early and loved it. I mentioned, a while back, that my mom was diagnosed with early cognitive disorder (it's age related dementia). She was so sweet in sending me an Easter card with a Happy Mother's Day hand written next to her signature. I told her I'd save it for Easter 2015 and thanked her with all my heart.

Thanks all!

Hugs,
Kimberly

Preparing for a day of cropping

Tomorrow my friend and I are going to a local scrapbooking store to work on some layouts. Now, this is a lovely place but the work area is a bit smaller than what I am used to. Normally, I pack up 2 rolling bins and 2 other rolling things to carry all my paper, embellishments, etc.
I was wondering how many of you actually prepare your layouts ahead of time before you go out to scrapbook? I think I might try this but could use some advise.
Hugs,
Kimberly

Scrapbook Layout - Coffee House

It occurred to me that there may be some blog followers here that are one of my youtube subscribers so I'll try to remember to post projects here on my blog too!

In honor of National Scrapbooking Day, I created a couple of pages for my 2013 album. I'm just highlighting this one tho' cause it is my favorite out of the 3 pages I finished.

Thanks so much for watching and if you're interested in being one of my youtube channel subscribers go to
www.youtube.com/sunshinecreation. I just did a giveaway for the 1500 subscriber milestone.





Hugs!
