Using up my scraps for some fun cards.  This one was made using CTMH Salutation Seals stamp set, Fanfare, and adhesive gems…..

Summer Layouts ~Miracle~

So here I am trying to catch up on my summer scrapping so I can be up-to-date before the start of the school year…AND….there is more.  I am trying to use my beautiful CTMH paper from the Spring/Summer 2011 catalog before my new Autumn/Winter product gets here…(insert HUGE smile here). 

So here are some of our beach photos scrapped on a fun layout using ~Miracle~

Miracle 002

This design is featured in the how-to book “Magic” and it is called “Illusion”.  On the left page, I used a 1/2 “ strip of cardstock and pleated it to mimic ribbon.  Then I added some cool buttons from the CTMH green collection

Handmade Journal Just For Kids

Ok, I just have a blast making cool journals for us adults.  So I decided to extend the idea and make a fun journal that is kid friendly.  Even a little one just learning to write will be able to benefit from this one…..

I used a primary line composition book and covered it using Close To My Heart’s Fanfare paper.

For a little extra fun, I added a paper flower using 1 1/4” squares turned into cones and placed in a circle.  Add a button and you are done…..

There is nothing better than being able to bring your love of paper crafts to your young students (in my case) AND young children (also in my case)!!!!

Simple Layouts

Having a relaxing Saturday going through summer pics and getting my own personal scrapbook caught up with.  Here is a simple layout I did using the last of my Fanfare paper pack from CTMH.

My favorite part of this layout was embossing the Dimensional Elements “Star” with Dragon Red embossing powder……added a little sparkle…

Got Scraps? Will Travel!

So far, the summer has been treating us well.  Once the girls got out of school for the year, we wasted no time and headed down to Myrtle Beach, SC for our “beach week”.  On our way back up north we stopped off at Williamsburg, VA and enjoyed a day at Busch Gardens.  One of our favorite places to be.

One thing I noticed is that  there were so many little things that I wanted to journal and scrap (like funny things the kids said, or menus and drink coasters from fun restaurants).  So I thought it would be fun to create a travel journal/mini scrapbook.  Something that would pop right in my beach bag or purse so I could just stick stuff in quickly and jot little notes down.  At the end of the summer, the kids could flip through the book and remember their summer adventures.  So here is what I made for our summer travel journal:

Wings Journal 003

I started off with a Close To My Heart My Creations Journal (page 120 of the Spring/Summer 2011 catalog).  With some paper from a Level 2 Wings paper pack and stickease, I covered the front and back pages (inside included).  I added some paper flowers (made by using a 1 1/4” punch and brads), playful ribbon, and some cool talismans to dress it up.  I even added a curio knob to be used to open the book when those are entering the world of our treasured memories.

If you would like to make your own summer travel journal/mini scrapbook, join us on Wednesday, July 20th at 7:00pm.  For $15 per person, you can take your very own journal, like the one above, home to enjoy!  To RSVP, send me an email or comment to this post on Facebook.
