French Manor Amore Card

Here is a quick card I made with French Manor and DCWV paper pack Black Currant. I just love this paper pack and thought it would go great with the French Manor theme.

Best Weekend Ever!

Saturday was the best day ever!! I got so much in the mail, my blue cuttlebug, my pink ATG gun and I received my Circle Pal's package and she got the one I sent to her. Check out the pictures below to see what I sent her.

Now look at all the awesome stuff she sent me. I am so excited!! I've already starting using stuff yesterday! Also check out her blog: http://kozfam5.blogspot.com. She is an amazing crafter and everything she makes is so nice! Thank you so much circle buddy I love everything!

Ok, now on to the other goodies I received Saturday. My new Blue cuttlebug!!! I am so excited I have been wanting this forever but it has just been way too expensive, but Amazon was having a great sale and I just couldn't pass it up. Plus, it matches my Expression!

And last but not least, my new pink ATG gun.. I got this from Terri at Stampsalive.com thank you so much! I started using it yesterday. I really like it but still trying to get the hang of it.

So it was a great weekend! And best of all I actually got to start using most all of the stuff on Sunday! So it was totally awesome! I will post some of the projects I made tonight.

My Scrappy Room Part 2

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it been so long since I posted last. I wanted to share with you the rest of the pictures of my scrapbook room, but just got super busy. My son started his 1st season of Pop Warner football and practice is every night unitl 8pm. Tonight is his 1st game and we are so excited! GO WOLF PACK!!! Plus, he starts school on Monday so it has been really hectic around here.

Ok now to get down to business. Here are the rest of the pictures from my room.

This is my top long drawer underneath the white shelves hanging on the wall. It is filled with all of my stacks of paper that I can't seem to stop buying.

This is the bottom drawer under my paper stack drawer. It is filled with some projects I haven't started yet. More like a storage drawer..

I have a section of 3 drawers that are next to my chair. This is the bottom draw and I store all of my card stuff in there including my finished cards

This is my second drawer, this is where I keep my embellishments-brads, eyelets, sandpaper etc....

And the most exciting part----- ready? It's my expression!!!! LOVE IT!

My Scrappy Space

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would share my Scrapping Space with you all. I love it, We are lucky enough to have a house with really big bedrooms, so half of the room is my scrapbook area and the other half is my office. It works out pretty well.

My walls are still a little bare, but I am working on it. I want to paint them but I just can't seem to find a color that I really like. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.

The U-shaped desk is the best part of my room. The office next to mine at work was remodeling and was going to rip all of these desks out and throw them away, so I asked if I could have them and they just gave them to me. I was so excited because I just couldn't wait to get them home and set up. I ended up getting some other ones that of course my DH wanted in the garage for his workbenchs. My DH bought me the chair for my birthday, and it is sooooooo comfortable, great for those late scrapbooking nights.

This is the back wall, where I hung shelves for more space. I keep all my cricut cartridges, magazines, stamps, and boxes of pictures. The 3 drawer container holds all my scrap paper.

Close up of the side area of my desk

This is under the side area of my desk. I keep 8 1/2 x 11 paper down there, in a crate that I put hanging files in and separated by color. Then I have CM paper in the black holder.

My Cricut area!! Love my Expression.

Inside my closet is where I put all of my shelves from Michaels I am still working on organizing my paper.

Ok that is it for now. I will post more pictures later this weekend. Thanks for checking it out.

Create A Critter Monkey Card

Here is a simple card I made with Creative Critter, I found 8 1/2 x 11 paper packs at Joann's on sale for $1.99 and totally stocked up on them. It was a great find. Now I have lots of paper to make cards with. Hope you enjoy.
