Design Team work for Scraputante

Well the New Year is almost upon us.  And I am so proud to announce that I have made the Design Team for is a new scrapbooking site with many supplies and monthly Kits available.  They have several kits each month, including a vintage kit, a traditional kit, a card kit, and a project kit. offers many products that are not available locally. will open on January 1, 2012 and you will be able to begin placing orders then!  If their kits are any indication, you will not be let down.  I had the pleasure of working with their vintage kit for the month of January. is the first design team I have been accepted on, and I am so excited and proud to be a part of this team.  January's kit is absolutely amazing and so versatile.  Below are 3 layouts and 1 card I created using the January Vintage Kit.  I still have enough supplies for at least one more layout and probably several cards.

I will be posting close ups and details on these layouts throughout the week!  Thank you for visiting my blog.  I wish each and every one of you a happy new year and here is to a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2012 to all of you!

Merry Christmas! and Big News Coming

I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! The holidays are a favorite time of the year for me.  I am surrounded by friends and family, and enjoy the magic of the season.  Yes, the holidays are busy and stressful, but at the end of the day, what matters is that you spend time with those people that mean the most to you.

I hope you enjoy your friends and family this holiday season, and also make some time for crafting for yourself!  I have missed scrapping these past few weeks, but will be creating more memories to put into my albums.

This will be a busy week for me, Christmas, starting a new job, AND I have a BIG announcement coming around January 1st.  I am so excited but it is top secret!  I could announce it now but I would have to kill you!  HAHAH!!

Here's to a Merry Christmas and I hope to have a few projects to post before January!

With Warm Thoughts

Nap Thirty

This is a layout of my cousin coming back from a trip with his choral group at Albright, the Mane Men.  He is awful tired!!

It felt fantastic to create again.  I feel like it has been forever since I have worked on a layout!

Here is a closeup of the gears.  These are thick chipboard that I purchased from Creek Bank Creations.  They have amazing chipboard and so may choices.  I used a template and glimmer misted these to add some dimension. 

I also used Prima Flowers ad placed buttons as a center!  Here is a close up of the flowers and clock.

Here is a closeup of the title work.  This was my favorite part of this layout.  I took Jillibean Soup corrugated banners and first applied gesso with a sponge.  Then I glimmer misted them and attached letters I had in my stash. and applied them with mini clothespins.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  Come the new year, I will be posting with much more frequency!

Have a great day!!
