Scrap Pink Highlights

I attended a very special 10-hour crop on Saturday in Mansfield that was hosted by The Scrapbooking Cafe (TSC). Scrap Pink benefits the Susan G. Komen Foundation. TSC will be donating $10 per person plus 10% of sales for the day.

Jenn, Holly and Debbi are the team who planned the event. Jenn and Debbi are co-owners of the new scrapbook store in Mansfield. Some of you may be familiar with Holly VanDyne, a nationally published scrapbooker and finalist for Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year. These ladies are just sweethearts! Everyone who attended received one of these t-shirts designed for Scrap Pink.
Five of us (Mom, Tammy, Connie, Me, Joan) enjoyed a day filled with friendship, creativity, fun, food, prizes and lots of giggles! By the time this picture was taken, we were all so tired...but in a good way! We really did crop 'til we dropped!
Each person received a packet with free goodies. This is what was in mine.
There were many prizes during the event. I was lucky enough to win this Basic Grey 6x6 paper pack! Love these colors! I can't wait to make some awesome cards with some of it!
Here are the goodies I purchased. I forgot to put the Fiskars Threading Water punch in the picture. I bought 11 sheets of the printed paper to use on Christmas cards this year. Then, I had to have this funky orange paper with holes, two die-cuts, Stickles and yummy super-wide ribbon.
A very special part of the event was the story about a local lady who is battling cancer. She will travel to Minnesota's Mayo Clinic for treatment. I took a picture of the flyer about her. Crop attendees had the opportunity to create pages that will go in an album for her. All she has to do is add pictures (she isn't a scrapper). There were several themes pertaining to her family for which we could create pages. I failed to get a pic of the two birthday pages my mom did, but you can see the "mom" page I did and the incredible paper-pieced cat Tammy made for the Halloween page.

In summary, it was a great day! Remember, you can click on any picture for a closer look. I will share the pages I finished at Scrap Pink in future blog posts. Everyone have a blessed week!

She said YES!

Julie called me early this morning
to tell me that Josh asked
her to marry him.
She said YES!!

The happy couple...
Oh, I think this looks stunning on her hand! Wow!
Now, so many details to decide for the big day...including the wedding date! Wow!

It's creeping close to midnight on Tuesday night as I post this, so I'll make it quick. I made this card after being inspired by the colors in the ribbon. Colors are Barely Banana and Groovy Guava. I used retired SU! sets Define Your Life and Time Well Spent. Accessories are white gel pen, self-stick pearls, ribbon and white chipboard shape. Oh, and Stampin' Dimensionals. I love those dumb things!

When I started this card, I was just stamping to be stamping. Once I added the sentiment, I knew EXACTLY who would receive it. I am holding onto it for a very special moment of expressing my gratitude. :)

The word gratitude is a wonderful word. Doesn't it just make you want to start counting your blessings?! Ah....I have SO many. On a bad day, yeah...I tend to forget to keep that list fresh and never-ending. If I hang my head with worry, I forget to look up and SEE all that I have to be grateful for...I am so glad I "wake up" and get back on track. Gratitude should be a part of my life at all times. Always. As I get ready to slip into bed tonight, I am immediately thinking of the soft sheets, the warm bed, my sweet sleeping husband (yes, the one I sometimes call knucklehead and who keeps me awake with snoring. LOL), my sweet little pooch and so on and so on. And, that's just what I'm thankful for at bedtime. Ooh...can't forget my toothbrush. I love that wonderful little thing!

OH and I have to add one to the list. Wanda. Macy and I visited her Tuesday night. It's been a while since I've been next door to see her. Her bruises are all gone. I am so grateful for her recovery. If you don't know the story, you can read it HERE. (scroll down a bit) I could go on and on, but...I've got to be rested for work in the morning.

See ya and thanks for stopping by...

Big Thanks

My mom gave me some of these neat mini die-cut label papers from Jenni Bowlin. You can see the colors in the pack by clicking on Jenni's name. I decided to create a card with the blue and green one and will most likely use the others in scrapbooking. If you click on the picture, you can see more of the details of the card. The card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I used the SU! spiral punch to create the interesting "notebook" effect on the fold. I had seen that idea in my demo publication.

Tip for using spiral punch on fold: When using this punch, there is a guide for where you put the edge of your paper. Turn the punch over so you can see the punch guide. You will punch from right to left. I scooted my paper over a bit to the left (and away from the guide), then punched the first time. It can be hard to do as you're punching two layers. For the following punches, put the guide piece into the last slot you punched, then punch again. This will create only one new slot and helps eliminate the extra stress on your punch. If your cardstock is super thick, you can break your punch! Please don't force it. Continue punching one new slot at a time until you have the desired number of spiral slots on the fold.

Products used:
SU! cardstock=Night of Navy, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi (retired)
Stamps= SU! Think Big (retired) & Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics
Inks= SU! Wild Wasabi (retired), Night of Navy craft and classic inks
Accessories= Stampin' Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber, paper piercer, silver brads, Wild Wasabi stitched grosgrain ribbon, white gel pen, Stamp-a-ma-jig, punches (spiral, small star, 1" circle)

And...a big thanks to all of you who visit my blog. I rarely get comments, but do see the number of visitors rising each day. If you like what you see, please take a moment to comment. It will make my day! Just wondering whatcha think of Create Share Bless. :)

This sentiment is so true! It immediately makes me count the blessing of the women in my life whom I call friends. The neat thing is that several of them are scrappers, too! I can't wait to have "time well spent" with them at the Scrap Pink crop this Saturday!!

The trick to getting the "frame" lined up on this card is to 1)cut out the oval on the green piece/card front using the Coluzzle system, 2) adhere the second color piece inside the card, 3) lay the clear Coluzzle template over the card front and line up with first cut, 4) cut next smaller oval in pink layer. *click for a closer look* You can see a picture of the inside of the card below.
A few details: I distressed the edges of each oval and added some glittery Stickles to the flowers. The sentiment was stamped using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for precise placement. I colored the word Friends and the little flowers using markers. The color combo was directly inspired by this fun ribbon in my stash.
Stamps=Time Well Spent, Polka Dots & Paisley (both retired from SU!). Cardstock=Green Galore, Regal Rose, Whisper White. Ink=Purely Pomegranate. Accessories= Coluzzle, Cutter Kit, Paper Piercer, Gable Green and Regal Rose SU! markers, white brads, ribbon, Crystal Stickles

Sunday Hodgepodge

Today's post is about a little of this and a little of that...
Here's the last pink card. The scalloped chipboard piece is colored with Pretty In Pink craft ink. The beaded strip uses Sticky Strip, retired Soft Subtles beads and clear microbeads. The flowers were stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear powder, then stamped again directly onto the cardstock using Pretty In Pink classic ink.
I mentioned I got my hair cut shorter this week. Same hairstyle, just shorter now. I took some dumb quick pics but won't update my profile pic with this one.
There's a party in my mouth and it's because of these donuts! LOL Lerch's are a local fav and such a treat at fair time. They are originally from the county next to ours. My co-worker told me about them and they are SO worth $5 a box! We got one box for us and one for my parents.
I wish you could pick one off the screen and taste it. The white ones are powdered sugar/granulated sugar and the brown ones are cinnamon/sugar. Delicious! Mmm! I took a pic of the full box for my parents because a very big mouse had already been in our box. I won't mention any names. *snicker* Yep, it was me. Kevin and I are seriously keeping track of who eats how many of each one. They are good enough to get all selfish about it. LOL
I love animals. I think I talked to every goat at the fair. I can't help it. I am silly like that. This one was so peaceful all curled up and sleeping. Sweet, huh?
These two were snuggled up with their heads together and sleeping. I wish I had taken a picture of the teeny tiny baby one in the other barn. It was half the size of Macy or smaller. It's little face was about the size of a cat's. So super sweet. It was nibbling hay like the bigger ones. I could have brought them all home with me. Macy would have been a LITTLE bit jealous. LOL
Besides the goats, the rabbits are my favs. This one was all dressed up for Halloween. Can you guess who it is going to be?......80s rock star Pat Benatar. See comparison below. LOL!
Ok, well I guess that's all the hodgepodge of events I have to share for today. Thanks for stopping by...oh, but let's jam to a Pat song HERE first. I love 80s rock! Go ahead and play some air guitar if you one's watching. LOL!

My Sweet Julie

Julie and Josh stopped by here for a whopping 20 minutes so I could do her eye makeup. She wanted a "not-so-made-up" look so we did soft browns with eyeliner. Her friend Ashley is getting married today. They played soccer together in college. She got her hair done, came by here, then was off to pick up her bridesmaid dress at mom's and then heading to Lexington. It was a quick hi and bye, but even a minute with my sweet Julie is oh so worth it! Love this girl!

I told her it was funny to see her with an updo....and wearing a tank top! LOL
Ok, just a proud aunt back to our regularly scheduled program. :)

Celebrating Summer '08

Here's a page about Celebrating Summer '08. I had taken these pictures one time when Kevin grilled hamburgers on our little charcoal grill. I was in charge of the corn and Macy was the clueless sidekick outside with her "daddy". Don't you just love Kevin's plaid pj bottoms? LOL We truly are creatures of comfort at our house. If we're home for the night and you stop'll find us in jammies. LOL I decided to do a vertical title for something different. On this particular day we were celebrating summer with ice cold beer (him, not me! Yuck!), sweet corn and charcoal grilling. Love these things about summer, along with the green grass, warm sunshine and colorful flowers. Now that the air is cooler here in Ohio and fall begins next week, it's time to say farewell to summer '08.
Here's a close up of the inked edges, paper piercing, gold brads and polka dotted Thickers letters.
I have used these small Making Memories brand letter stickers on several layouts. They are so easy and I love that there are various fonts on one sheet. Simply peel and stick for a fun title. The chipboard arrows were colored with Pumpkin Pie craft ink from SU!.

Well, our Friday night ended up being just a dinner date. Kevin has to work today so he didn't want to go to the fair, sit at the tractor pull all night and be exhausted from little sleep. So, we ate mexican at Casa Fiesta instead. It was excellent food! We came home, finished a puzzle together and watched some crime shows on tv. Sounds like two old farts, huh? LOL

I'll show my last pink card on Sunday. Next Saturday I am going to Scrap Pink. It is an all-day crop that benefits breast cancer research. I have to get organized/packed this week so I am ready to crop 'til I drop that day. Not sure how many new projects I'll have to share until then, but check back and see what's new just in case. Thanks for stopping by!

A Card For Wendy

Another pink card....same colors,etc. as yesterday's card. I added the woven ribbon piece for a very distinct and prominent focal piece. I made this card especially for my dear friend and upline Wendy. Today is her birthday! I delivered it Thursday night en route to my haircut. Which by the way....I told Abby to "go shorter". Gasp!!!! Yep, it's now to my earlobes. It'll grow, but I was in the mood so snip...snip. LOL I can feel the breeze on my earlobes again and it's super weird! I want to do it all sassy and pieced instead of just straight straight straight. If I get a new pic sometime, I'll update my profile photo.

I had a square piece of chipboard that was sturdy and helped with this technique. Using wider ribbon makes it so much easier, but I had the Pretty In Pink ribbon in the skinnier ribbon so that's what I used. I put double-sided tape on the back for the ends going each way. You have to take your time, scrunch down each piece as you weave and then secure the end after it is woven. Clear as mud? Basically, you have to have 18 fingers to do it. LOL

If you look closely, you can see that the bottom row is just barely on the top surface of the chipboard. I considered starting over or just undoing it all, but it had taken too long and I couldn't bear the thought of destroying it. So, it is what it is. Wendy didn't mind. When I handed it to her she said "Oh, it's gorgeous!" Perhaps she won't notice my goof. :)

Oh, I just noticed...the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Everything else is SU! besides the Stickles. I'll have one more pink card to show and one scrapbook page this week. Thanks for stopping by!'s finally Friday. I've had a super busy and tiring week. Kevin and I are going to the fair one last time tonight. Yep, it's tractor pull time. I will lovingly go, but it's sure not my THANG! LOL It's supposed to be a chilly evening so I'll just lay my head on his keep my earlobes warm. LOL I get to see my niece Julie Saturday so I can do her makeup for a wedding. Other than that, it will be a relaxing weekend I hope. Enjoy yours!!

Pretty In Pink

Quick "lunch break" post for today. I made a few pink cards the other day. I love the new Pink Pirouette cardstock with the Pretty In Pink cardstock. It's a soft monochromatic look. The two SU! sets I used are retired (Delight In Life and It's Your Birthday). The pink layers are on dimensionals and the greeting is stamped on the white card base. I added some Frosted Lace Stickles for some bling and some white accents with my gel pen. You can see a different angle below of the glitter. Ok, I have to get back to work! Have a great Thursday!

Concert Highlights

For those of you who aren't country music fans, this post might bore you. For those of you who are possibly fans or think you might be on if you'd like. For those of you who are true Tracy Lawrence fans....well, you need to sit down. Whew! I'm typing this at 12:20am a little over an hour after I got home. I am still WIDE awake and replaying the event in my mind. Yep, it was a good show for sure. 10th row was awesome!!!!!!! *faints*

Emerson Drive (aka Serious Eyecandy...LOL) opened the show. I was familiar with some of their songs and they did rock the house down. At one point, the whole band was lined up at the front, playing some songs. The drummer (last on right) was sitting on the "wooden" box you see between the first two guys and it was the most awesome drum machine that had various sounds when he tapped it a certain way. Totally neat! The lead singer (third from left) was wonderful! His wardrobe person deserves a gold medal. Whew! You know what eye candy is don't you? Yep, he's it!!!! LOL Quite a talented group!

This is one goofy picture. Tracy Lawrence recently signed a new artist to his record label Rocky Comfort Records. This is Michael Scott and yes he was THAT close. He jumped off the stage and worked the crowd, went all the way into the grandstands and made his way back again. Very personable. He has a single on the radio now. Ever heard of him? I hadn't until the show.

The lady on the left told him she needed a picture of his butt and he said "What, you need a picture of my butt?" in the microphone and then proceeded to do this. Yes, this is a G-rated guy and it was quite hilarious to us all. He was a pretty good sport to act goofy for her. LOL Hope nobody gets offended that I posted it.
Ah....the last pic I took as I walked out. Just think....lots of hard-working crew members will help tear down and repack all that equipment in here. They are on the road to Pennsylvania next in two days. Wonder if they'll go home between shows? Who knows. Just hope they have safe travels. Yes, it's real. I walked up to the stage near the end of the show, waited 'til Tracy didn't have his guitar and waved his CD booklet and my black sharpie marker towards him. I said, " Will you sign this please?" and HE DID! I hit the jackpot. I then told him "God bless you and thank you!" How cool is that? How nice of him!!!!!! Ah...see why I am WIDE awake. Connie asked me if I was going to use that sharpie again. Heck was out of my craft stash. I need it back for projects. Seriously though....I will cherish this memory and what a great time we all had. *faints again as she remembers the heart-pounding excitement* I did have a racing pulse after this!!! Just ask my buddy Connie. LOL

There's the man. He crooned out his best songs and even a Merle Haggard classic. Awesome!

There are certain songs of his that just take me back to the past. Those songs are classics to me. If there's one man who can twang the right way, well it's Tracy Lawrence. Can I get an amen?! I think Texas Tornado and I See It Now are the ones that made me melt.

My little Canon point and shoot camera took some half fuzzy pics, but I can't wait to get copies of Connie's pictures. She has a Kodak with 10x zoom. She has pics so close they'll make your pulse soar! Ahhh....
If I ever met him, I'd have to tell him two things: 1) Tell your wife and kids how much I appreciate the sacrifices you all make in order for you to tour and share your music with your fans...and 2) I'd tell him how much his music has meant to me over the years...through severe heartache, happy times and just wanting to jam to the twang. He's a good man who gave a great performance. OH and his blue eyes ain't all bad. Mmm Hmm That's what I'm talking about!

I need to sleep now. Whew! We'll be back to stamping stuff on Thursday. Thanks for letting me share my highlights.

A Card, The Fair & Elvis

Well, we survived the high winds aftermath with no power outage, etc. Others haven't been as fortunate. Power outages are all over this area, schools/businesses were closed and trees/leaves are scattered! I am so thankful as I type this to have a house with lights, a computer that works and a fridge full of cold food! A lot of Ohio Edison trucks went to help out in Texas and will have to get back home to help those in our area. They are expecting 2-7 days until power is restored for some areas. Wow! I am definitely counting my blessings.

Here's the other card I made using some of the scraps of patterned paper. I used the SU! set Alphabet Soup (retired). I love how the letters are all jumbled up like the real letters in a bowl of alphabet soup. I used markers to color the stamp, then added different colors of Stickles for some shine! Mmm...yummy glitter! I used yellow on yellow, purple on purple and iridescent on pink.

Ok, now some fair highlights...

Yes, my knucklehead husband leaves his clothes on the floor. *rolls eyes* Macy doesn't care as long as she has something soft to lay on like daddy's jammies. What a goofball. This is the face we got when we were leaving without her. Poor kid. She's so neglected....NOT!

I am tickled to say that I got FIRST PLACE at the fair in the scrapbook category! See my blue ribbon? *smiles ear to ear* Kevin was so sweet. He went out to the fair alone Monday morning to see how I did and the building was closed for judging. So, when we got there in the evening he was saying "Come on, let's go see how you did." Then, after he saw the blue ribbon and we were leaving the building he said "You know I support you 110%, hon." Guess I better not call him a knucklehead, huh? LOL I am just so proud that I used my two nieces and my nephew for the subjects. They are quite special to me!

I was in line for a funnel cake (which by the way, there is NO graceful way to eat a funnel cake and not keep from wearing powdered sugar...LOL) and here came "Elvis". He had three sheriff's deputies with him like he was a rock star. I'm not sure what was more hilarious...the sheriff escort or his "I'm constipated" pose when I asked if I could take his picture. LOLLLLLLLL! What you can't see are his legs. He did the "Elvis" stance with one leg bent behind and one bent in front. Double LOL!

Oh and Mom.....see the lady in the upper right corner drinking a Coke? That's our fav waitress Tyanne from Jake's. hee hee

Ok, Tuesday night is the Tracy Lawrence concert at the fair. I am meeting Joan, Connie, Nancy and Robin there! Woo hoo! Time to get some country groove on....boy I hope to get some really good pics of that good 'ol blue-eyed country boy then! Yee Haw! There's just somethin' about him. Love that crooning voice! We have 10th row seats! Yes!!!!!!!! Click HERE to hear one of my favs he sings!!!

Yummy Birthday

The idea for this card all started with the striped and alphabet paper scraps. Sometimes it is amazing how "using what I have" turns into a card I really love. Adding glitter made it that much better to me! Yum! Hope you enjoy it!

Cardstock: SU!=Pale Plum & Whisper White, Papertrey Ink=Lemon Tart
Stamps: Inque Boutique
Other: patterned paper scraps, Papertrey Ink Lemon Tart ribbon and ink cube, SU! Cutter Kit, Marvy scalloped circle punch, sponge, Regal Rose ink pad, SU! markers, Stickles, dimensional foam

I decided not to crop the top left corner of this photo so you can see the stamps I used. I didn't even think about taking a pic of them when I was downstairs. The yellow ones in the CD case are the cupcake, candle and sentiment images(out of view). They are by Inque Boutique. Their stamps come without any foam backing. You simply place your stamp on any clear acrylic block, apply ink and stamp. The step you must not forget is using the included foam pad under your cardstock for an even, crisp image. The company calls it their "secret weapon". LOL It really does work. A foam pad is included in each set you purchase from them. The Inque stamps I've gotten have all been from Pat Catan's craft stores here in Ohio. They are so very inexpensive and store easily in CD cases!

I was able to achieve the multi-colored image by using my SU! markers. Simply color the area of the stamp with your markers, "huff" your moist breath on the stamp, then stamp your image onto cardstock. Remember: Use the "secret weapon" under your cardstock for best results. Since the stamps themselves are used with a clear acrylic block, it is super easy to see right where you are stamping for easy alignment. No need for a Stamp-a-ma-jig with these! :)

The candle was stamped separately, cut out and adhered using dimensional foam. The entire cupcake piece is on dimensionals as well. It makes for tall layering, but well worth paying extra postage for a fun card. I added loads of Stickles with chunkier glitter pieces for the icing and flame. Using the cutter kit for the patterned paper pieces helped create an area for the sentiment and mimics the curve of the actual sentiment, too. To make the scalloped piece stand out, I sponged some Regal Rose ink along the edges.

Ashland County Fair...Well, Kevin and I went to the fair for about 45 minutes on Sunday afternoon. We dashed to the Hobby Building only to find out that the scrapbook entries are judged Monday morning. So, no news there. The fair board closed the fairgrounds at 4:30pm due to extreme high winds. It was so, so windy for hours after that. We had to brace the breezeway storm door from the outside as it was whipping open and I was so afraid it would rip off the hinges! It wouldn't even stay latched! Whew! The kitched screen blew in and there were leaf bits all over the counter! (All of our windows have removable screens and the kitchen one is placed on the inner side of the window.) Yes, it was super windy! I've never had that happen! We've lost the other screens that are placed on the outside, but never this one! The wind has finally died down as I type this Sunday evening and I'm super glad for the expected cooler temps and sunshine the next few days. I'll give you a "scrapbook entry" update on Tuesday. I plan to go visit the fair again Monday night since our visit was cut short Sunday.

Thanks again for stopping by....and I wish each of you a "yummy" Monday. :)

Faux Suede/Colored Chipboard

I made this masculine card Saturday night. Get this...I stayed up until about 4:45am! Every now and then I get a major second wind on a weekend night and just create until the wee hours. Kevin and Macy had gone to bed and she later came down to be with her momma. I think she and I took a break about 3:45am and it was just magnificent outside. It was windy, there was a slight humid feeling in the air and the crickets were super loud! The moon is what really captured my attention. It was shining full and bright behind a veil of clouds and there was a spectacular ring of light around it. No, I didn't take a picture. I love being outside sometimes when the rest of the world is sleeping. Well, except the crickets! LOL

I had this stamp set (Lovely Leaves, retired) on my table knowing I wanted to create a card. I needed a piece of Kraft cardstock, so I checked my scraps first. This folded piece with the sentiment was in there and was perfect for finishing my card. How neat is that? Happy me! I love that I had saved it and it was just waiting for this card! The sentiment is from another older retired set that I can't part with just because of this stamp! Love it!

Here's a fuzzy close-up of how I layered the piece. I colored the chipboard piece with Chocolate Chip craft ink and dried it with my heat tool. I then added large eyelets with my Crop-a-Dile in the pre-made holes. The leaf was stamped onto Kraft cardstock and punched out with my Marvy scalloped square punch. I adhered the chipboard piece with mini glue dots. The entire piece is on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I love to fray the ends of twill tape. SU! has the softest cream twill tape that does that easily. This picture also shows the cardstock colors as they truly appear. The True Thyme is one of the retired In Colors from two years ago. Really Rust is in the current Earth Elements group. I love the rustic feel of this color combo.

The Really Rust layer had a bit of a Faux Suede look to it. Hold cardstock in one hand, bone folder in the other. Run the cardstock over the edge of the bone folder to break down the fibers. The cardstock will separate and you can carefully peel the two layers apart. Use the outer or inner side for different looks. I used the inner side on my card above. Easy! *click for a closer look to see the texture on each side*

I love to color bare chipboard using Craft Inks. I have the Stampin' Spots and simply dab the color onto the chipboard until covered. Then, I dry the ink with my heat tool (careful not to burn fingers!!) until it lightens to its true color and is no longer shiny. I do about 2-3 coats to ensure the chipboard is colored evenly. Try it! My heat tool is always on my craft table because I use it for so many things besides heat embossing.

I had said in an earlier post that Macy usually likes to have her nose or tail or body literally inches from my craft chair down in our basement. If I move, she is immediately alerted to what her momma is doing. LOL After she came back down last night I caught her sound asleep with her nose just inches from the chair wheel. Thank goodness I was up and about and not sitting or she'd have a flat nose now! She was so exhausted and never knew I took this picture. Bottom line: She loves me and wants to be right where I am. I just love her! Since I was up so late and she was my creative partner (aka snoring dog), she actually slept in later 'til about 8am today. LOL Uh and she's asleep right now as I type this on Sunday afternoon.

Ok, one more thing....I find out today how my scrapbook page entry in the fair did (3 pages=one entry). We are planning on going to the fair later, weather permitting. I'll let you know how I did in tomorrow's post. Thanks for stopping by...
