Wedding bliss

I can totally atest to there being such a thing as marital bliss. Really, if you are lucky enough to find the perfect guy then life will be filled with fun and love for a very long time. I have been married for 16 years (this years) and trully thought it wasn't possible to be with one person for so long...but now I can't imagine being with anyone else ever again!!!

So with love on my heart I created this new not so mini - 8 x 10 chipboard scrapbook to celebrate the happy couple and I used a new paper kit by Teresa Collins called SAVED THE DATE.

this is the cover- really simple

one of the pages

this is a large envelope that you could use to add photos to or some special notes that were given to the bride and groom.

this is the back of the envelope...

This is the last page of the book and I love it. I love the banners and the perfect spot for a simple black and white photo of the happy couple.

I am listing this in my ebay shop ---- if you are interested in it - check it out.

Happy scrapping!

Banner Time

Ha ha - do you get the pun...if not try singing it...Banner time (sounds like Hammer Time by M.C. Hammer??) o.k. never mind. anyway, tis the season to start creating some lovely banners for well, Mother's Day and Memorial Day, 4th of July and hey maybe even for Dad's day...but first I want to start with MOM - because she is the most important in the world, right? {wink wink}
I bought some small chipboard banner shaped triangles awhile back and had covered them with some fun papers also awhile ago and just pulled them out yesterday and just added these fun letters using my new SLICE machine by Making Memories...Will share that new baby later in the week.
But here's my finished banner - I'm liking it. Whatch'a think?
Aren't the colors different and fun.

I think its o.k. to use patterned paper as long as you use solid colored letters to offset the background colors.

See how pretty they look up close!

Disney on the brain

I don't know if I am having Disneyland withdrawls or if it's just the closet paper in my work space but I went a little nuts this weekend making new mini scrapbooks with  a Disney theme.
Here is the first album - love these small 5 x 5 size and the colors are so fun.
Inside pages of above book

This album is so lovely and filled with those famous Disney Princesses - that there frame can hold a photo of your special little one.

Each set of pages has a featured princess and a coordinating sticker or die cut

then there is Sofia the First...loved the stickers so I had to buy them and just found papers I had that sort of went with the colors...

I don't have little babies anymore so I don't even know what kind of show it is other then it is on Disney Channel and that its got a cute little princess named Sofia...

Here is another fun Mickey Mouse album made from chipboard & a coil binding

This time each page is dedicated to one individual character.

Cute right? I think I was dreaming about a trip to Disneyworld and secretly wishing we were going there this summer - but alas we are not - not this year, anyway!!!
O.k. on to the next subject of scrapbooks.
Hope you like them - if you want to see more photos of the albums you can check them out in my Etsy store or ebay @
I will be linking these up to the following challenges:

I have 3 little kids at home and I feel like I need to decorate for the holidays, don't get me wrong I do love to do it. I have a collection of Halloween & Christmas decorations that I have been collecting for years but all the other holidays the smaller ones, like Easter & Valentines day (just name a few) are ones I usually buy year after year - new dollar store items that I won't sweat too much if they get broken or thrown away.


Anyway, last February we got new doors and my husband said he didn't want me ruining the doors with nails or sticky stuff to try and hang wreaths on...For around 6 months I didn't put wreaths up but then I rebeled and started creating them again...I have tried several different types so this time 

I went SQUARE 

I got the most inexpensive wreath frames I could 3.99 each at Michael's I had the yarns in my stash. 
I wrapped the green frames with the thick cream yarn and gotta tell you that the corners were the hardest. 

Then I made some leaves out of felt and pom pom flowers for the corners and that was it. I am trying to figure out something to add or to hang down the middle 

Different but cool - I dig the colors I used but still haven't found something for the middle - My husband says it's good the way it is, but what does he know (wink, wink)

Anyway, I think the lesson here is that Normal isn't always the best way, it's good to try new things and being square isn't bad  its pretty cool 

I am planning on linking this up to the parties above.

Happy crafting
