Thanksgiving 2011 Mini Album

 I used the Stampin' Up! mini chipboard album for this project.  I think it is 4x4 or 5x5.  Just the right size to complete an album about one event.  I kept things pretty simple for this project.

Thanks for stopping by!  I am THANKFUL FOR MY BLOG READERS.  :)

Frosty Paws

 This layout is about Riley's 3rd birthday on 9/5/11.  I did a simple layout using wallet-size photos.  Click either pic for a closer look.
Thanks for stopping by!  Tomorrow I will feature a mini album I did about Thanksgiving 2011.

Three Brothers  How cute are these boys?  I am so in love.  Click on the pics to see details.  I used shaped-edge paper, patterned paper, solid paper, Cricut die-cuts, punches and stickers to make this page.  It has a lot going on...
 I love the number borders available on the Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge.

 You usually see 1 + 2 =3, but I did a 2 first since the two brothers (Riley and Tucker) were born first.  Clever, eh?  Charlie is from the same parents, but was born in the next litter.
Riley, Tucker, about cute!  They were in their Christmas pajamas.  *snort*

Doggone Cute

 Riley is adorable.  On this particular day we were either heading to the vet or the groomer.  That little face melts my heart.
Have you ever layered buttons and added twine to keep them together?  It is a neat way to use buttons.

Thanks for stopping by!  I have two more layouts about adorable pooches.  Stop back soon!

Sock Thief

 Jack and Riley are both sock thieves.  On this particular day, Jack managed to steal almost all of my clean ones from the laundry basket.  I was in my craft area and he'd grab one, run upstairs, then come back downstairs and steal another one.  I finally went up and found them in his "secret hiding place".  Anytime he goes under the small side table in the family room we know he's up to no good.  I love how this page turned out.  He is my silly furball.
 I scored the entire 12x12 base cardstock using the new diagonal scoring board from Stampin' Up!.  I added some other little elements to create a one-of-a-kind embellishment in the top left corner.
I journaled.  Don't faint.

Thanks for stopping by.  Click any pic for a closer look at details.

Card Day Projects

 I promised you I'd eventually post the rest of the cards I made at Card Day.  Here you go!
 Click any picture for a closer look.  On this black and white one, I totally smudged the ink.  Oops!
 This card uses some of the new dies and piercing templates.  All products in this post are from Stampin' Up!.
 I stamped Happy Birthday on the wrong side, so my card looks different than Connie's sample.  ha
 Here's an idea...stamp your sentiment, THEN emboss your cardstock.  Neat textured look...
 I got interrupted today while taking pictures.  As you can see, he is SITTING on my projects.  Riley!
 See the patterned paper peeking out?  Just use an edge punch then adhere a strip of paper underneath for a cool look.
 I didn't add a sentiment to this one like the sample showed.  I will stamp something inside instead.
 Have you ever used a blender pen?  Just dip it into your ink pad and color away for a neat "shaded" look.
It is hard to see here, but the cake is adhered to a scalloped square of GLITTER paper.  Yum!

Ok, I FINALLY took pics of some of my recent scrapbook pages.  Check back this week for more inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by!
