here is a link to my new Etsy shop. I decided to post 6 cards for starters. And if those sell then I will post more cards and maybe even scrapbooks and other craft things. Please take a look, and if you see something you like buy it :)


Baby Scrapbook

I just have to say that this is one of my favorite scrapbooks that I have ever made! It is the first "clear" album that I have put together. I started out by sketching the whole thing out in pencil on paper. Just a VERY ROUGH idea of what I wanted each page to look like. Let me start by telling you who "Jayden" is :) One of my best friends from elementary school just got married (I was the matron of honor!!), and they are expecting their first baby in Oct. a baby boy that they are naming Jayden :) For her baby shower I thought about making her a "baby's first Christmas" scrapbook since Christmas is so soon after he will be born, and I know she will feel so swamped with her new little bundle of cuteness. But I then realized that I didn't have ANY Christmas paper at all! So I finally decided to do a "A Year Of Jayden" scrapbook! Most people veer to pastels for babies and baby type things... can I just say, please don't. I don't like pastels for babies for some reason. I have ALWAYS loved bright and bold colors, never one for muted tones. So of course I wanted to make a very bright and fun baby book for Bethanne and Justin's baby Jayden. This is the final product... I am sure I will be making more of these in the future, I just love how it turned out. Ok Ok Ok, and get this, one of the best things, 1. I didn't buy ANYTHING for it, I just used products that I already had, and 2. It only took me ONE DAY to make it after I had the sketches done (I made the sketches while watching t.v. the night before) and when I say ONE DAY I really mean about 6-7 hours!!! Love it.... well enjoy!

Crib Hanger

One of my best friends is having a baby boy in Oct. For her baby
shower gift I made her a scrapbook. I will try to post photos of that
tomorrow! Anyways, I loved it so much that when I got back home (she
lives in a different city then I do) I couldn't resist making her
something else for the baby. I ended up making her this crib hanger :)

I cannot believe I have not posted in so long! I have been busy busy busy. Lately I have been working on some graduation announcements for my cousin. And I have had Jake's sisters over for some scrapbooking as well. And I have FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY started scrapbooking my wedding photos!!!!!!! I am so happy and excited about that :) My wedding colors are green and red, so sometimes I am reminded of Christmas when I am looking at the colors. But hopefully my scrapbook doesn't remind people of Christmas :) I have only just started it so there are about 6 pages done so far. I have been interrupted by the reminder that I need to finish those Graduation announcements this week :( Oh, and it is the first 12x12 scrapbook that I have ever made! There are times that I love that the pages are that big, and there are times that I hate that the pages are that big :) But overall I am just so excited that I am working on my wedding photos finally! Anyways, I haven't been taking photos of my creations lately :( I have made a lot of cards, but just made them, wrote in them, and mailed them out. Not too many photos. I will try and do a better job! I do have some photos of some scrapbook pages in my 8x8 "At 22" journal scrapbook and some cards though! Here they are
