We are Having Fun...

Oh yes, we are! Over in May's Vacation Scrapbooking class... we really are having fun! May's classes are always jam-packed with content and this one is no exception! And, I speak with great authority on that as I am one of six people contributing to this awesome class :)

Now, before you leave me here... thinking "I never go anywhere, I don't have any need for a vacation class..." Ah! Not true! In fact, many of the projects I am contributing have nothing to do with actual vacations.


Why then, are they part of a vacation class? Oh, I am glad you asked!

You see... when it comes down to it, the only difference between vacation scrapping and regular scrapping is that it is potentially more "epic."

As in... out of your comfort zone, full of ephemera, more photos than you typically work with, etc, etc, etc...

All those things can potentially trip us up in our scrapping, right? That's where this class comes in! I venture to say that even if you haven't been on a vacation in forever and you don't see one in your future, this class is still for you!

So, don't wait! Head on over to craftwithmay.com, using this special link that will give you $5 off! The link is good until April 9.

I hope to see you there!

Oh, and while we are talking about fun things...

One Stamp, Three Ways

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. And this week, we are making the most of our stamps...

Do you have stamps that are versatile? That can be used many ways? This week we challenge you to use a stamp multiple ways on the same project or use the same stamp in different colors or ways on multiple projects!


For my layout, I decided to put this fabulous Dina Wakley stamp to use!

To create my background, I simply embossed the stamped image with white, then used watercolors on the top of it...

Then, I stamped in black and fussy cut to create my embellishment...

And for the final touch, I used just the edges of the leaves to create a border accent on my page...

And there we have it!

I just love making the most of a supply this way!

And, of course, having the topic of a baby sleeping through the night to scrap about...

Oh, it is a wonderful thing, I tell ya!

And now it's your turn!
Go get crafty and and link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from SimonSaysStamp.com.

Grids with Flair...

Grids are a favorite go-to design for me. When in doubt, if I start stacking up little bits of pretty paper and embellishments, it all comes together!

And this page, scrapped recently for A Flair For Buttons, was no exception...
Some wonky circles...

 Some kitty cat whimsy...
 and plenty of FLAIR!
Oh, I do love a good grid!

Have a great weekend!

The Ring Bearer...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. This week's theme is "Lions and Lambs."

From cute Lawn Fawn critters to animal print stamps, collaging images of your favorite animals to scrapbooking a photo of your pet – we can’t wait to see how animals inspire you this week!


I'm taking inspiration from our beloved doxie. She passed away about a year ago, in her sleep, at the age of 17. She will always hold a special place in our hearts... she was even the ring bearer in our wedding.

And, that's exactly what I'm going to scrap about!

With some 6x6 papers gathered, and my photo ready.... let's scrap!
 I want some little doxie shapes for my embellishments, so I simply drew this little cutie...
 Then, used it as a template to cut out several...
And now it's just a matter of arranging all of that loveliness on the page...
A stitched down title...
And there we have it!
A page all about our little ring bearer...
And now it's your turn!
