Top Shelf Memories

What fun I had being the guest designer at Top Shelf Memories for the month of May! Top Shelf Memories is a kit club-you don't have to sign up, just buy the ones you like. The kits contain only the latest & greatest products from the most popular manufactures.

The first two layouts are the mini kit #1 featuring My Minds Eye/Little Miss Muffet. I loved the shaped die cut paper so much!!! You can use them whole or cut them in half!!

This is the mini kit #2 My Minds Eye/Little Boy Blue. I got three pocket cards done and four layouts!!!

I hope you will go check out her kits and tell her I sent you. Thanks for stopping in and have a great National Scrapbook Day-make something "crafty"!!!!

National Scrapbook Day

National Scrapbook Day is May 1st!!! I will be teaching this easy, cheesy little bind-it-all book made out of cracker boxes, cereal boxes, pizza boxes or what ever box you have or we have!!! I will be at Craft Crossing in Gonzales.
This is a new craft store in our neck of the woods. The address is 614 St. Joseph Street. I hope to see some of you local gals come out and make a little book!!! The store has all kind of craft stuff and a wonderful scrapbooking section ( it takes up half the store!!!) Have a great weekend and be "crafty"!!!! and I'm still looking for blog followers-I will draw for the stamp sets at the end of next week.

more Dimensional Details

This is week 3, adding material to your layout!! A very fun thing to do. I sewed a border and then stapled it at the ends and on to the layout. I love the layering of the papers-I know you use lots of paper but your "showing off" lots of paper also.
This one is week 4!!! Yes I'm back on track -all caught up!!!! What a good feeling!
On this one I inked behind where the photos would be placed. I love the shadow effect. I hope you get some inks out and play sometime very soon. Have a wonderful day!!!

Creative Imaginations/S.Walker line

This was a very fun line to work with and I thought the pic's I had worked so well. I love it when that happens, everything just comes together!!!!
Instead of colored cardstock I used Kraft cardstock. The patterned paper is faded and "vintage " looking-so a great combo!!!
I hope you take a minute and check out the pic's-he is doing his thing!!! He is a mess in a good kinda of way!!! Thanks for stopping by and sign up to be a FOLLOWER OF MY BLOG and I will have some fun prizes going out in a few weeks. My goal is 25 !!!

What a cutie!!!

Such a Cutie Pie!!!! Our youngest grandson loving his blue puppy and how he does that is he chews on his tail!! Yes he loves the tail.
The supplies I used on the first two are from Little Yellow Bicycle. I love the colors in the paper and vintage "grunge" look!!!

This one was done using Sassafras Lass. Love the funky, vintage feel the paper line has. Perfect for little boys that love to chew on puppy dog tails!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!!

All in the details....

New class!!! Yes another one. Dimensional Details by Nic Howard over at
Big Picture Scrapbooking - check it out!!! The top one is my first try at rolling the paper- I didn't get the paper wet enough and it turned into a fold instead of a "roll". The second one I really let the water sit on the paper a few minutes and it rolled much better. Very cool technique!!! Thanks for stopping in and go "roll" some paper!!!
