Blanket 4 Baby

I won a Cosmo Cricket, "Material Girl" scrapping kit last year...and it's kind of been lying in the back of my stash. While the kit is very nice, it's not my usual style. So I figured I'd just save it and use it for showcasing sewing projects when I get around to them. LOL

So I guess here is the first:


The kit doesn't have any yellow or blue papers, so I had to look elsewhere. but the rest of the embellishments are all from the Material Girl kit. The chipboards are soooooooo cute!! TFL :)

Kitten Fun

My cousin's children came to visit us during the Christmas holidays. My cat had just had a litter of six kittens about a month before, and the kiddies were so excited. Here's one of my latest layouts -- just random pictures of the kiddies and the kittens. Some of these pictures are soooooo funny! The poor little kittens had to endure a lot during those two days -- especially from the youngest one! LOL

Music Makes My Heart Sing

I've had this unfinished layout lying around forever now. I loved the background paper -- although I did add a different border to the center to get the colour combo I wanted. But then I was stuck, as I couldn't come up with a layout design I liked.

Lol -- I settled on a circle. It's quite interesting -- when I first started scrapping, I didn't really like circles in my layouts. I was working mostly with squares and rectangles...until one day a circle layout just came together, and I've been hooked ever since. Now, when I get stuck, the first thing that comes to mind is a circle!!! And bling -- lots of bling!!! :) TFL.

Light Tomorrow

A friend of mine gave me a new stamp for Christmas. I love this quote -- "Light tomorrow with today!".

Today I used it for the first time -- the sketch I was following had two squares on it, and I thought why not use this stamp for one of them! It worked out nicely too -- after a lot of juggling around. Sometimes card are just SOOOOOOOOOO hard to create! I need some mojo these days!!!!

So what do you think of this??? Mojo or not -- it turned out okay. :) TFL.

Stamp Something: Anything Goes
Oldie But a Goodie: Bright and Cheerful
My Partner in Crime: Something New (used my new stamp)

Double Butterfly

And I'm off with my card making for 2011!!! :)

 This card is actually for a card lifting group I joined -- you get a card to "lift" or copy...once a week, and see what you come up with. One of the best parts is making the original card idea into something entirely your own. For the most part, it's made me think outside the box -- because soooooo often the cards we are lifting are totally not my style!!! But it keeps things interesting -- and keeps me challenged. :p

This is the latest card I made -- LOL -- about the only thing that I lifted from the original card was the half circle in the center. I love how it turned out though...
