Card Organizer Done

This was the project of the month from the may newsletter.

I REALLY love how this turned out. I have been doodling all over everything lately. This was suppose to be a teacher gift, but it is mine now. I will just have to make her another one. Did I say how much I am loving doodling right now. The doodle on the bottom right (hello tab) I traced from "lisa doodle", the other two doodles are all my design.

all about me album

I have been working on this album all week for ebay. I just love how this turned out. It was real tempting to keep it, but I already have an all about me album started in 8.5x11. I used my May SA kit, DCWV rubons, Rhonna stamps, quickutz and more. I really love working with Chatterbox papers - I think I am becoming a chatterbox addict.

I never win anything, I don't even get my hopes up anymore because I basically NEVER win. I was one of three that won's grand prize from the cyber crop. We each one $100 in store credit - how exciting. $100 in scrapbook products and purple onion stamps coming my way. I can't wait to get my stuff so that I can play. I am just a little excited.

Family Mini Album

A samples of the new album that I just listed on Ebay.

Self-Addressed Cyber Crop May 5 - May 7 National Scrapbook Day

What a fun weekend. I scrapbooked most of the weekend and my scrapbook room shows it. had a cyber crop from May 5 - May 7 - 24 challenges, 4 class projects, plus I was also able to get some misc projects done. I was also able to use the challenges to get my quickutz club swap cards done.

Such a productive weekend, know if I can only get pictures printed (I haven't gotten any prints done since last July). I have so much to scrap. The money just hasn't been there - it has been going towards gas!!! I am going to see if I can do a little at a time at walmart, this way it won't be one big expense.

Here are some challenges/class projects from the cyber crop.

I used my quickutz for this card - I made the sunflower by using the leaf die that came in the sunshine gift kit.

I used 4 corner punches out of the green to make the frame around the flower, alpha punch outs and quickutz punctuation set for the brackets.

I have pictures that I took yesterday to add to this album. I am going to try and get them printed so that I can finish this and mail it out to my aunt.

This was a target frame that I have been wanting to alter for the longest time. I was able to use it for the frame class.

This layout is going to go in my favorite pictures album. Mostly Heidi Swapp stuff. I am just waiting on the right pictures for this layout.

Another card for my QK club swap.

Altered coaster made from chipboard. I have never heard of altered coasters before this class. This was a fun little project to do.

Chatterbox Papers

This layout turned out so cute. I don't know why I don't use Chatterbox papers more often. I like how they are double side, the patterns and the colors they have.
