Teresa Collins Pocket Calendar

This year, thanks to Jessica I was able to attend CHA. While there, I made this handy Make & Take.

This is made from one 12x12 page of Teresa Collins Journal-It paper, and 2 acrylic covers. The one sheet of paper makes an entire 12 month calendar. Very cute, and anyone can make it.

Casey's Valentine Gift

I wanted to share the awesome book I created in Jessica's "Clearly In Love" class. I love the kits offered by Kits2Remember. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Casey and I in our typical romantic (hahahaha)/or unromantic fashion, consider Valentine's a "Hallmark Holiday". We normally don't do much - restaurants are packed, flowers are over priced, and cards never say exactly what you want them too. So, this year, I wanted to give him something, because he is wonderful, so I decided to give him memories. Admit it, to us croppers, memories are the best gift. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. ENJOY!!!

Christmas Acrylic

This Christmas "mini book" is very similar to the Kits2Remember make and takes done at EXPO's and various stores. I used 4 - 4x4 acrylic panels. I put red and green acrylic paint around the edges, and put a 3x3 piece of Christmas patterned paper in the center of squares 2 and 3 front to back (mirror image). I also used green stickles to add some bling. I then used my Bind-It-All by Zutter to bind the pages, and used various ribbons to tie on each rung of the binding.
I actually chose not to use pictures on this book. It makes a great Christmas decoration on my mantle, as is. I think pictures would take away from the decorative look of it.

My Scrappy Blog

Well, everyone has been telling me it is "time". Time for what you ask...It's always time for something. I have been told to do a scrap blog...everyone wants to see it, they say. it is, all set up. I've even taken some pictures. Can't post them right now, I haven't taken them off the memory card yet...But they are taken. Hopefully soon, you will all see them. My real hope is that having this blog will make me do more with my supplies, as I will want to post them all. Wish me luck as that goes.
