Scrap Therapy Session - March 31st

We had a great class today!! Our new classmate, Lacey,
came and made a cute layout of her son's birth.

Diane made two cute layouts for her daughter Stacey!!

Judy is working on this cute layout. We have to finish cutting some things for the other page.

Here is the sweet (mushy) poem she added;

In My Heart's Eyes

"In the eyes of my heart

This is how I will always see you

This is how you will always be

Smiling, cuddly and tiny

So sweetly looking up at me.

If I should live to be 100

Or if older than that I should be

This is the picture in my heart's eyes

That I shall take to Heaven with me."

I told you it was mushy, but sweet!!

I've been Playing with the Cricut!!

I had several projects in mind today since I got a new cartridge this week. I got the Hello Kitty Font cartridge and I had downloaded a cutfile of this title below. It would make a really cute layout!

I cut the title with chipboard then with the glitter cardstock. I thought it would be difficult for it to cut, but it whizzed through, Perfect! The Friends title is also on chipboard, so cute!

This is another kitty I cut, Ballet Kitty! So cute, wouldn't she be great on dance pages!! She took a lot of patience and several cuts, but I love it!! Donna, you are the one who has patience to deal with all these little pieces, not me!!

I loved the chipboard flowers Helen put on her page the other night. I decided to cut some more with chipboard and the cut the papers. Cute for an Easter page!!

This is one of the borders close-up with buttons added and on top of matching paper!! Cute!

I also cut this Birthday Boy title for Lacey. Her little boy just had a Frog First Birthday Party. It matches that Frog Paper Donna brought me.

Some of you saw this flower mesh I had cut out. I put it on yellow cardstock and added some buttons. This would make a great layout for a 5 x 7 picture!!

As you can see, I had a fun afternoon and evening with the Cricut!! It is just amazing what it can do. If anyone would like to come play with me sometime and learn more about it just call and I'll let you know when I'm playing!!

Judy's Pages Today

Judy had shown me these adorable photos her husband had made of her daughter at the fair. I had been searching for just the right paper and found this vintage look paper in Destin.

I cut the postage stamp background for the right page and the titles on the cricut.

Look at these great photos. I just love Black and White photos. Try it sometime.
Take pictures in color and use our photo editing software to convert ot B & W.

School Days

We did not have a photo for every year. Thats's okay, just go with what you have.
Also, remember to check with relatives for missing pictures.
Again, Judy got a private lesson. Everyone get well, and we plan to have a Scrap Therapy Session next Tuesday, March 31st. We will have a new student, Lacy, who has an adorable little boy. She is planning to scrap as he grows. He just turned one!! Wow!! Wouldn't that be awesome to do it that way!!

Beachin' It

Bob and I left mom's and headed to Destin. It was raining all weekend and even when we arrived at Destin. We got a condo for the night. When we awoke on Monday, it was beutiful!!

  • The condo was decorated so cute!! We loved the fish!!

    I was picking up shells when Bob got my worst side. This is the reason we started the South Beach Diet. We have completed the First Phase. Bob lost over 10 pounds and I think I've only lost about 6. It is not too difficult, tho. I have the info if anyone is interested in getting ready for bikini time!!! LOL !!

Daisies and Brownies

I worked on this last night. I did not have many picture of Betsy's scouting. I know there is some video (would love to get some stills from those, if possible) I cut the titles from thin chipboard then papers. I tried to use the pens to outline them, but had difficulty. You have to draw with the pens, then put the blade back in and cut. I got an error and it didn't work. Got to get better with this technique because I love it. I got this stamp for journaling on my trip. Cute!

I Plead Insanity

I spent last night making this page. Betsy is still angry with me for cutting her hair when she was little. I was just digging through pictures and found actual photos of the haircut!! Then the photo of me with the wild hair!! Too much. I printed the journaling on a transparency so it would look like I printed it right on the page. I had trouble getting the "I plead" right. I tried several versions. Anyway, I love the postage background I cut from a file I got from Capadia Designs!!
