Easter 2010

Scrapped the afternoon away this past Sunday and loved every minute of it!  The beautiful weather has put me in the mood to scrap spring pictures, so out came Easter pics!!  

I used the Flirtatious DSP and Spring Fever embellishments.  Added a corduroy button and some journaling and I was done.....with one girls' layout.  But, "insert duplicate page" (my fave option in MDS), change out the pictures, change the name on the label and voila! new layout for another girl!  Do it a second time and poof! a 3rd layout for the 3rd child!  3 layouts in the time it took me to do only one.  What a timesaver that was!!

Don't look too hard....there is a mistake.  But, I have since found it and corrected it.  I'm not telling you what it is, but if you find it, shout it out!  Just to see if you're paying attention! ;)

Easter 2011

You know what today is?  Sketch reveal day at Let's Capture These Sketches!!!

Here's the fabulously awesome sketch by Darlene:

And here's my take on the sketch:

Pics are of my girls this past Easter with their Easter baskets.  I used Cheerful Treat DSP, borders and elements, photo corner punch, corduroy brads, buttons, rhinestones and bakers twine.

You know the drill....use the sketch to create a layout of your own, upload it somewhere on this world wide web and link it on the LCTS blog.  Easy peasy!  I want to see your interpretation of this sketch!  Have fun and play along with us!!

{from my heart to yours}

Another card from January's Stamp Club!  Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE the stuff for the Big Shot in this latest mini catalog?!?  We used the Labels Collection framelits (my fave!!), the new Fashionable Hearts embosslit and the P.S. I Love You stamp set.  Also threw in a little big of Twitterpated DSP for the background.  Used the matching heart punch and viola!  Easy peasy card.

I love the "u" in us

Card from Stamp Club in January!  We used the P.S. I Love You stamp set from the new mini and the new Everyday Enchantment DSP, ribbons, and matching brads available in the SAB catalog.  We also used one of the Big Shot embossing frames which is available in the SAB catalog, too,  if you spend $50 or more!

My New {awesome} Camera Bag!!

It's FFFFRRRIIIIIIIIIDDDAAAYYY!  And you know what that means.....another sketch at LCTS!

This is a sketch for Team B, but I loved it so much I went ahead and did it, too!  Here's my layout:

And here's the fantabulous sketch by JJ:

Inspired?  Well, go create your layout using this sketch, upload it to your blog or online gallery and link it on the LCTS blog and show the world your creativeness!

The pics are of my camera bag I got back in November.  What a tortuous decision that was, I tell ya!  

I used Sweet Details DSP and Sweet Details stamp brush set, 3 different flower punches, 2 different heart punches and 3 different colored eyelets.  Some stitching and some staples.

Babysitting Flyer using MDS!

Ok, so how stinkin' cute is this?!?!  Mara is ready to start making some money (she has her sights set on a smartphone, but she has to pay for the $30/month fee and chores around the house just aren't cuttin' it, especially when you have to share the chores {and extra $$} with 2 other sisters).  So, I did some research on how to word some stuff and delved into MDS to make a flyer for her to pass around the neighborhood.  I totally impressed myself!  

And, if you're a visitor to my blog from my area and need a babysitter or knows of someone who needs a babysitter (weekend days and eves), contact me and I'll get you set up! ;)

Micah's 9th Birthday

It's Friday, Friday....(you know you'll be singing that song the rest of the day now!)

Anyway, another Friday, another sketch from LCTS!

Here's the awesome sketch by Natalie:

And here's my layout:

Pics are of my youngest DD's 9th birthday party August 2011.  She had a little slumber party with her friends and she wanted a LaLaLoopsy cake.  Thank you, WalMart for that one! ;) 

I used Simple Snapshots (hostess CD in the Occasions Mini) DSP, borders, and labels, and Celebrations brush stamp set for the cute little banner.  Grosgrain ribbon in a bow for the tag.

Now, go get scrappy and upload your beautiful creation and link it to the LCTS blog!

First Day of School part 2!

Another sketch reveal day at LCTS.  This week is for Team B, but once again, I couldn't wait to create something with it, so I did!

And here's the sketch:

I used Sunset Serenade DSP, the Write Stuff II journaling blocks, Vintage Trinkets, scallop trim punch, and I used the flourish from Notes & Details and School Days brush stamp sets.

Pics are of the girls on the first day of school this year and showing their customary show of fingers of what grade they are in!

MDS Blog Hop Friday!!!

Imagine my total and utter surprise when last weekend Erica Shaw emailed little ol' me and asked me to be a guest blog hopper on her and her fellow My Digital Studio afficianado's awesome weekly Blog Hop!  Of course I said YES! :)

The theme this week is Valentine's Day

We aren't a big celebrator of Valentine's Day around our house.  We do the customary Valentine's cards and candy for school, but that's about it.  Not for any particular reason, really.  But, given the theme this week, I was at a serious loss of pictures to scrap!  I had some super cute DSP to use, though.  Going thru my pictures I realized using pictures from Christmas would be perfect for "LOVE"!  Mara got an iPad 2 for Christmas and you could tell the "love" for her iPad on her face as soon as she opened the gift.  

I used this sketch from October 2011 PageMaps:

On this 12x12 layout I used the DSP Love Impressions.  I also used sewing, glimmer brads, various buttons, rhinestones, baker's twine, and Sending Love epoxy brads.  I used the photo corner punch, scalloped circle, oval, circle, perfect label punch and 3 different size and shape of heart punches.  I used Outlined Occasions brush stamp (from the SAB CD), and Frames with a Flourish brush stamp.  Voila!  ;)

Last year I created McKenna and Micah's Valentine cards for school using MDS.  This year I decided to do the same thing for Micah.  (McKenna is in middle school this year, so no card passing out for her!)  Well, thanks to the website, Pinterest, I found the perfect card to create for Micah to pass out!  

Here's what it looked like in MDS:

I snapped the photo and then embellished it with Love Impressions borders and embellishments.  I also used the medium heart punch, perfect label punch, and a rhinestone.  The font is a free font I found online called Heartland Regular.

Then I printed of the card as a 4x6 photo and used an x-acto knife and cut a slit above and below her hand in the picture and Micah inserted a Tootsie Roll pop!

And here's how Micah arranged all the cards for me to take a picture of:

OCD a little?  ;)

Thanks for visiting my blog for today's MDS Blog Hop!  Maybe I'll see ya again sometime! 

I know I'm the last stop on the hop, but if you somehow ended up here first, hop on over to the #1 blog on the list and make your way thru the rest and prepare to be amazed and inspired! 

Happy Friday!
