Happy Cardmaking Monday!

Hello everyone. I'm back again today with some more cards made with 6 x 6 paper pads harvest lane and summer fresh. I love the Simple Stories 6 x 6 paper pads for making cards the element cards make it so easy. I usually whip 4 of these cards together in about 30 mins - hour depending on how fast the creative juices hit me :-) Which is about all the time I get in a day to myself while the little one is napping. Haha. Enjoy and I hope everyone had a good Mother's Day yesterday. Once again I apologize that some of the cards are facing the wrong direction. I save them in the right direction and then when I upload them they turn. Anyone know how to correct that? Leave a comment or email me. Thanks :-)

Happy Wednesday!

Hope this finds everyone feeling well...feels like it's been forever since my last post... probably because it has been over a week! We just had that lovely stomach bug going around go through our house so I think everyone has recovered and it's great to see this nice weather and be able to open the windows and air the place out! Anyways, today I am wondering what scrapbook tool or embellishment you couldn't live without? Since starting to scrapbook just over 7 years ago, so many new products and tools have been introduced to the industry. I must say I like to use stickles, washi tape, and buttons on my layouts and cards. A new product released not along are the fantastic feathers from Bella Blvd (you can follow their blog for ideas and inspiration) check it out! I'll be posting some fall layouts I made with the Simple Stories Harvest Lane 6 x 6 paper pad later this week.

I used AC cardstock, 6 x 6 Harvest Lane paper pad, some distress stain and ink, twine, Basic Grey Button, and stickles.

Finally the day has come, I put in my order for the NEW 2013 Spring/Summer Memory Works catalogs! I have several customers anxiously awaiting their arrival. Just last night I got a call from a nice lady I met at a vendor show I did last weekend wondering if they had arrived yet. So now I get to call her back and say they are ordered and schedule a time to meet up with her and deliver a catalog :-) YEAH! So exciting. Lots of new collections in this catalog just can't wait to share with others. You can view the entire Memory Works catalog online at and contact me via email to put in an order to be delivered right to your doorstep no matter where you are :-) Any questions, let me know. Happy shopping!

Hello Blog followers! Welcome to my blog... bare with me while I get everything set-up the way I'd like it. A little about me. I have been paper crafting for about 7 years now, started when I was pregnant with my first daughter. My first project were making the cards for my baby shower (maybe I'll dig up a picture to share with you.) I've been a Memory Works consultant for just over a year now. I enjoy spending time with my 2 daughters, scrapping, as well as various other activities...just finding the time for it all can be interesting sometimes as I have a fulltime job out of the home as well. I will try to update at least once a week. Although, I am hoping to do it more often than that but let's start out with a small goal and work my way up :-) Thanks for stopping by and come back weekly for Memory Works updates and projects I'll share with you.
