I've been scrappin...

I had a happy Sunday, doin' some scrappin' just for me! Feels like ages since I last did that. I LOVE Vicki Boutin - everypage she does inspires me - some I love so much I have to just scraplift entirely.
Like this page - Vicki's original is in the current issue of Scrapbooks etc

This one just happened and came together so quickly (a feat in itself for me!!) It's the first time I've used this paper pack the colours work so well with the photographs - I can't stop looking at it.

Here's a card I made the other day - a basic stick the papers down, a bit of stamping & it's done, kind of card. No techniques to report. So simple and quick to put together. Haven't done one of those in a while either!

Then there was just one more tri-fold card - my friends daugther is just as horse mad as my own Grade 5 girl.

Only just remembered to take these pictures before sealing it in an envelope.

Butterfly Tri Fold Card

I don't like to start each every post with "it's been a while" - you know how it is - life gets busy and you just have to do what you can to make it through. It would probably help if I was a little more organised - but I find that it's easier for me to do what needs to be done on the day it's due!
Now the art class has finished for the season that's one less thing to do (& note to self for next term - spend the summer working on the projects!)

I'm still loving my Library of Memories class. I posted the KAGS title page to the class gallery and was so happy when I sw that Stacy Julian herself had posted a comment on it! (picture me doing my happy dance!)

Here's another version of the tri-fold card. I love how pretty this one is.

I've made so many of these and supervised the making of many more - I still think it's a real simple card to make and the possibilities are endless!

I'll be in trouble though - this one should have been in the mail a while ago!

(Photo) Freedom

Still working my way through my Library of Memories class - but man am I enjoying it. This is the greatest evidence so far.
My photos are sorted, they are slowly being tri-aged into the category drawers and I was able to pull together the pictures I needed for the title page to my "All About Us" album very quickly.
Getting the job done is now becoming far more important than agonizing for hours over just one page.
This little baby came together in just over an hour - like a breath of fresh air.
I'm finding my Photo Freedom.

New storage.

I got this Making Memories Embellishment Centre from Michaels the other day. With a 50% off coupon and $$$ in gift cards it was time to buy this cubby - for small change!

Still playing with it, moving stuff around - and of course it prompted a bit of a spring clean too.

I was surfing over at Jennifer Johner's blog the other day - snooping through her studio pictures and loved how she had this big wire basket filled with ribbon so I copied........ - love these wire baskets from Superstore - I also use them to store all my CTMH Acrylic Stamps.

Sneak Peak

One of the cards for the April card clubbers.
That's all you're getting for now. Not even an inside shot!
