"Make A Wish"

I've been busy lately and not been scrapping like I should have been. Today I finally found my mojo and some time and got this LO done.

More pages for my Nephew's Scrapbook. These pictures are from his 12th birthday...the background paper that I used was really "busy" and normally I would have used it but I think it went so well with the theme of his birthday decorations. Page 1 is done from a sketch from Sketch Inspirations sketch #217. I fussy cut one of the fish and pop dotted it. The "Make A Wish" is the font from A Child's Year Cart. I used the Cricut Craftroom to weld the letters. It was the first time I used the Cricut Craftroom and thought it went well. The candle is from a birthday kit I bought from Creative Memories several years back. Page 2 is all done by fussy cutting the background paper. That paper was from a stack I bought years ago....I want to say it is a DCWV but I could not tell you for sure or even which one. All the plain colored cardstock is from DCWV.

THREE POINTS it is!!! This picture of Sean was taken at my brother's house. I don't know the story behind it yet but I think it's the cutest picture.

This was a very easy page using the Sports Mania Cartridge. This is the first time I've used the "page feature" from this cartridge. I really like how it turned out. I used my gypsy to size the basketball hoop so it would fit on the cut out on the page.

The paper is all DCWV plain cardstock.

MORE Layouts for Sean's Album

I was able to accomplish 10 pages this weekend!!! That's a good thing since I'm under such a time crunch...he graduates the end of May and my goal is to have 50 pages done for him!!! That works out to abut 5 pages a week. These are all from a family vacation that we took in June of 2000 to BEAUTIFUL Destin FL. Here is a supply list that I used on them...most of the plain colored cardstock is either DCWV or Core'dinations. The pattern paper on the first 2 pages I just got this week from Michaels (did not write down who makes it) I usually don't buy paper like this anymore but I knew my LO was going to be simple and I thought that this paper was perfect for it. The other pattern paper is some I bought when I first started scrapping and thought I needed to buy all the "pretty" paper out there (especially beach paper since we live in Florida) , there are brad buddies on 2 of the pages. The cuts are from Life's a Beach cartridge. I think that just about covers it...if not and you REALLY want to know who makes it leave a comment and I'll let you know :)

Birthday Card for My Sister-In-Law

Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister-in-law Janie. My middle brother Gerald started dating Janie when he was 15. They dated through high school and college and then got married right after college... I have known Janie longer than I've not known her and she is such a wonderful sister.

Now on to the card details...The cat is Loralie fabric that I rough cut out the figure then glue it to white cardstock with regular white glue, after it is dried I detail cut it out. The plain card stock is Coredinations Black Magic.  The gate cut is from "Ornamental Iron" cartridge, I got this cartridge from my BFF for my birthday. She said she bought it because she knew it would be one that I would use but would not buy for myself she is probably right!!! I love it and can see lots of uses for it....the flowers and the BIG Brads I got from Paper Wishes. The "celebrate" is a rub-on that I've had forever!

More Sean

I've been busy working on Sean's Album this weekend. I made two quick pages using paper I had in my stash....The one with the crosse net is made by wubie prints I double matted the photos and cut the ball out of a second pages and pop dotted it to give the page some dimension.

This one I don't know who makes the paper...again some paper I've had FOREVER....all I did for this page is double mat the photo
"Batter Up" Page Solid cardstock DCWV, pattern paper...the brown with the words is Scrappin Sports & More..the one with the baseballs is Francis Meyer.  The batter up was cut using the Sports Mania cart. the stickers on the tickets are an assortment from my stash. The Tickets were formed using my Stampin'Up ticket punch. The stamp on the first ticket was from a set of stamps sent to my from my BFF in Australia :) by Kaiser Craft called memory boxes.

"Play Ball"

Plain Cardstock is DCWV, the pattern paper is from a pack I got AGES ago at a $1 store. The Play Ball and the equipment is from a Jolee Boutique Sticker pack that I've had (again for ages).
