OK, OK!!

LIFE! :) Can someone stop the world from spinning for just a bit? I need a break! LOL!

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to post yesterday - it was just one of THOSE days. So, to make up for it, I'll post all four of the layouts from last month's scrapbooking class. Will that put me back in your good graces? :D Part of it's been not being able to find the surfaces necessary to take photos - what a MESS around here! I'm working on it, however. :D

I'm also going to apologize right now for my scanner. If someone wants to bless me with a GOOD all-in-one, I'd be so grateful! LOL!!!!!!!! The scanner bed is 11.68 inches - so it cuts off 12"-long items. And let's not talk about anything wide.... :D SORRY!!!!!

Here's the first one!

Isn't it FUN? That paper pack is the FREE one you can get with Sale-a-bration going on; it's ONLY through the end of the month, so I'd be SURE to place your order now, or book your party in the next week or so!!! With every $50 you purchase, you get something awesome for FREE - and if you are the hostess, for every $300 your party hits, you get another FREE item! That's on TOP of the already awesome benefits! :D

Anyway. The only other products we used were Bermuda Bay and Whisper White card stocks, SU! Timeless Type Alpha Sizzlits Dies, and a 2-way glue pen. Fast, easy, and so cute!


Again, super-simple, cute, and will give those special photos a real boost! That's the BRIDE Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). We also used a brayer, Real Red ink, Frost White Shimmer Paint, large heart punch, Real Red and Basic Black card stocks, and dimensionals.

The third one!

How SIMPLE is this? But it's REALLY cute in person - and SO simple! Another with no ink! :D Just Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla card stocks, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, and the scallop square die and scallop oval punch. I'm thinking little girl's tea party photos, or Easter dress, or or or!

Final one - and it was a LOT of fun, but the most work of the night! :D

SO fun to do! Let's see. We used Not Quite Navy, Blush Blossom, and Very Vanilla card stocks. We used Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Creamy Caramel, and Blush Blossom ink. We used the eyelet border punch, the crimper, the SU! Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates, and the Petal Card Die. There's a pocket behind that heart, for extra pictures OR journaling, and we used the Heart to Heart punch to make the pull for it.

So, there you go! Lots of ideas that will transfer to cards, or grow for larger scrapbooking ideas - or maybe it's a color combo that you want to do some home decor items with. Whatever it is, I hope you got inspired today! :D

Have a WONDERFUL day - and be SURE to take the time to STAMP something!!!!!!!!!!!
