Collage Layouts

Have you ever made a collage with your layout?? Now that I think of it, I have done one before *duh it's in my header*. Well, I have been trying very hard to get caught up on my pictures I haven't done Christmas yet, then I have Julia's bday party still need to order those prints. Lots to do!! Anyways, I started tonight with Christmas and thought since there are soo many pictures of our princess opening presents on Christmas morning I would trim them down and make a collage layout. OH was it hard!
I started with the idea of using a 8.5x8.5 page, then realized I needed more space so I used a 10x8.5 piece of paper. I arranged them all and put them down using repositionable adhesive, once I had them just right, well not really still have to trim one or two. I used my Glue Glider Pro to glue them! I realy like the way this looks, seems like a much nicer way to use mulitple pictures than having all those pictures on the page with different mats and stuff like that. Now all I need to do is pick some paper, cut some stuff from my Cricut, add a title then, well you get the hint basically just finish the page! Ok, off to bed back to MDO tomorrow need to get up EARLY!

I LOVE my Cricut!

Well I have been creating for days now and I must say I love, love, love my Cricut! Don't think that I haven't always loved it, I just seem to love it more today than when I first got my baby bug. Why, you ask well because I have been working on my whimsical bugs dt challenge and it has made me look at all my cartridge's and say "Wow!!" I have used a variety of cartridges for this creation, maybe 5 so far. I am loving it!!

I also started working on my b-day cards for the swap. I am happy with the first set I made not sure what I am doing for the second. For my cards, I used the new EK punch not sure of the name but its the one that looks the paper was torn out of a notebook. I have had this punch since the beginning of the month and barely used it last night!

B-day cards.....

Whimsical Bugs Challenge so far............

Do you ever

loose something that is right in front of you?? I swear the past few days I have been loosing everything! Each time I switch from my deep cut housing to the regular housing I loose the regular one. Then today, I went to clean a stamp I used and poof it was gone I did find it somehow it ended up on the floor. I went looking for my new pink bone folder and can't find that either! I think I either dropped it in my brother's car or left it at Kristin's. I hope I find it SOON I really liked that one, and not only cause it was pink but because it was sturdier than others. So I ask does that ever happen to you???

Goal update

Well, it's now the 18th of March and I don't think I have met even half of my goals! I have only made 1 card, well 2 but 1 is not finished yet. I have done maybe 3 layouts if that I think that includes what I did in Galveston. And as for my room, well its staying semi clean. I will say the jetmax cubes really help me keep it clean, especailly now that I have 4! Then there is the RAK, hmm not sure what to do for that...WAIT I got it!! I would tell you but if the person I am going to give this to reads my blog (and she better!) it will ruin the surpirse. I will post a picture on Sunday, cause i'm gonna give it to her on Saturday!! Hey, did you notice the counter?? I have had over 500 visits!! That is sooo cool, I was so excited I went shopping! Have you seen the new studio G cupcake stamps over at Michael's?, they are so cute I almost bought them all! But luckily I stopped myself. Well off to the dollar store, then to pick up Julia. Have a scrappy day!

A challenge

So, this morning I logged on to the Whimsical bugs blog, to get the newest challenge and boy did Ii find one! We have to alter flash cards with an Easter theme!! I have no clue where to start, or what to do. I am thinking maybe a mini album or some tags, I just don't know! But I do know I need to get some zip dry (think that's the name) and flash cards. Well, at least now I won't have to wonder about what I will be taking to this weeks crop night!

This past Saturday I completed a challenge from a group member, it was a layout I believe from 52 Sketches. I had fun with this one, for 1 I got to use pictures I have been trying to scrap for a while and another I used my beloved cricut (well really it was Kristin's since I was at her house).

Spring is coming!

I have spent the past 2 days, getting everything cleaned and ready for spring!! I have also started pulling out all the Easter decorations, and making a few also! Thought I would post them before I head to bed! I made a few Easter decorations for the flower boquet I made in February. I also made another wall hanging, just need to finish it. Today, I also did my WHimsical bugs challenge! The challenge was to make a St Patricks day card, I've never made a card for this holiday so it was a challenge. I am happy with the end result! Ok, now to bed! Oh, and I am also adding a bday card I made for my dd's bday party.

Altered sign

I never know how to start a new subject! I always start then delete, the restart then delete again! Anyways, this is a sign I made over the weekend! I bought the sign from hobby lobby and used my cricut and wall pops to decorate it!! The font is zooballo, and the bunny is from doodlecharms. I also outlined it with stickles.

Sunday, March 8, 2009

Let me first start with saying, I did not get my room cleaned! Instead after I dropped Julia off at MDO, I went to Hobby Lobby. I walked around there for an hour or so, and found some really cute stuff! Then I came home and cleaned the rest of the house. So its still a wreck!

Saturday, I had some girls come over and we scraped! We had lots and lots of fun as always! We even went on an adventure to rescue Kristin! I got 1 card done, made a sign, and finished a layout I started in Galveston. Today, well with the time change I did NOTHING! It feels really good to do nothing sometimes! I did manage to get out and go to the new Target thats about 10 mins from me, they have a huge line of Pink EK Success scrap stuff! From punches, to cutting tools! I also found the pink bone folder I have been wanting (since I saw Krisitn's), and I also found a rotary cutter. Have you seen the glitter paper they carry now??? Its soo pretty! My brother bought me a pack the other day, it has pink, red, and purple its a very thin paper not like mist glitter paper and the glitter does not come off either! I used some last night and it cuts very very good with the cricut. I will definetly buying more of it! Ok, off to do something, not sure what though!

A few things......

Well, I made it home from our fun weekend in Galveston!! I had tons of fun, and got well got some stuff done! I think I completed 5 layouts, my whimsical bugs challenge, and thats it! When I got home I figured since most of my stuff was packed I would put my jet max cubes together. I had 3 and bought 1 on the way home! I got down to the last one and it was missing a piece, so I took it back to michael's but the 2 I went to are out!! Now I have 2 rain-checks sitting in my purse, and 3 of the new EK Success slim line punches sitting in my room! Guess a girl can't have it all! So now, I must devote my self to cleaning my room tomorrow. I did manage to start putting stuff away in the cubes that are already put together. My poor room looks like a tornado went thru it, it's soo messy I can't even think about scrapping. I think I am going to start making monthly goals for my self! So here they are:
  • 5 Cards, other than challenges or swaps.
  • 10 layouts, other than challenges or swaps.
  • 1 RAK
  • Keep Scraproom semi clean! (Nearly impossiblt but a girl can dream!)

Wish me luck!! Also, keep checking back to learn about the RAK!!
