Landon & Katelyn

Mama Pauline and her angel Katelyn came over to visit and do a little scrapbooking. Landon and Katelyn are three weeks apart...glad we finally got some pictures. When Landon was up, Katelyn would be napping and vice versa. It was really nice to finally meet Katelyn.

Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' Christmas Jingle Kit

The Christmas Jingle kit is so easy and fun to put together...I managed to create 36 cards and 17 gift tags with very little scrap left over. I did however use two additional pieces of Real Red 8.5x11 cardstock and one piece of kraft 8.5x11 cardstock to use all the self-adhesive pieces that come in the kit. Whoo Hooo!

Let me know if you'd like to join me on October 18th from 2-5pm to put these cards together. Or if you like for me to send you this class to-go. Please send me an e-mail.

Simply Scrappin Petal Party

Pocket cards has got to be one of my favorite layouts for a card that looks impressive and takes no time at all. This was the fourth and final project that I shared at the birthday party. The only difficult part of this project was to decide which one to make.

For All You Do Accordian Purse and Cards

The accordian purse idea was a project that was put together for us on the incentive trip to the Big Island earlier this year. Thanks SU!'

I had never offered the same class over the course of 3 days...I'm exhausted and I think everyone was happy with the results. I felt a great sense of accomplishment when they were done. Enjoy!

Stampin' Up! Flower Folds

I was invited to share several projects at a birthday party at the request of the birthday girl. She wanted to be able to enjoy an evening with family and friends where we could make some projects, have some eats and a cocktail. What a perfect evening.

Just had to figure out the logistics to keep a large group moving around the room and keeping the projects very simple since there would be some first time stampers.

Here was one of my favorites because it looked nice on the table, and served as a was colorful and at the end of the evening my gift to the birthday girl was the jar with rulers that I had embellished with SU!'s Flower Folds using SU!'s Hostess Level 3 Lovely Flowers Bundle. I just might have to make another one for myself.

Landon @ 8 weeks

Can hardly believe the little guys is eight weeks old today. He loves to talk (making cooing noises and such), moves his little arms and chunky legs as he plays and is smiling a bit more. Landon must be going be having another growth spurt...he has been sleeping a lot, even during the day.

A Little Somethin' Bitty Box

This box was created by using SU!'s Bitty Box & Envelope Die, SU!'s Flower Fold Die and Matchbox Messages stamp set. Such a cute little box of sunshine.
Color combo: Yo Yo Yellow, Summer Sun and Chocolate Chip.

Love this idea that was given to me by Ann Corley. She had told me about it and I had to visualize it since I had not seen a sample. This 3-d thank you is sweet and I can't wait to share the project at my next hostess club meet.

Landon @ 6 weeks

A couple of pictures as we head out to see doctor.

Landon now weighs 9 pounds 12 oz. and has grown 3" to 21.75 long. He continues to be a great eater...he'll take 4-6 oz. per feeding and loving it. He is also sleeping longer in the evenings and continues to take short naps during the day. Landon is beginning to smile more, is very alert and loves listening the Black Eyes Peas. He got his first set of vaccines and did really well...really.

Here are my samples from Yolanda's Shoebox Swap. Thanks to everyone who made my sample for me.
