Elves on rocking horses

Trying to scrapbook a little each night and hopefully have a completed page by the weekend. This is my New Year's resolution! Even used the flocking powder by Martha Stewart...the same stuff Shannon & I learned not to blow on a few years ago, unless you want flocking everywhere!

2nd page of Latte layout

Completed 2nd page this evening while getting ready to return to school after Christmas vacation. I cut the coffee beans from Love You a Latte cartridge. Used a coffee ribbon and coffee brads bought at the Ontario Scrapbooking Convention. Used the negative cuts from page 1.

Love you a latte

A layout completed in only a couple of hours. I have plans on making it a 2 page layout. I used a sketch challenge from for this week. The coffee paper is paper I bought at the October scrapbook convention in October. It is Coffee stamps on Kraft by Canvas Corp. Yummy coffee bean paper from Jo Ann's. I used Love You a Latte Cricut cartridge for the title and cafe cup to resemble a Starbucks cup. Ashley was not drinking coffee! We had water in it since we were desperate for a sippy cup. She loved it!

Freshly Picked

A layout I started and finished in 4 hours. I used several Cricut cartridges. Storybook for the title, Preserves for the strawberries & flowers, From The Kitchen for the recipe journaling card & Tie the Knot for the flourish. These pictures are from June 2008 not long after I had planted the strawberry patch at our new home. I used my Sizzix machine to add texture to the strawberries. The paper is from a Martha Stewart paper pack I bought several years ago.
