It was less than an hour before we had to leave… and I hadn’t wrapped up the year end gifts for the group of girls! I really didn’t want to just toss loose candy and a gift card at them. What to do? ScanNCut to the rescue!
Today I want to share with you one of my “quick and easy” formulas for crafting. Today’s example: An easy way to use up those loose sequins on your work space! This is something I come across a lot, and making a card is always a great easy way to “clean the desk” as well as use up some random supplies.
Around here we’ve been eating healthy except for the rare & worthy splurge (such as the Fremont Diner – see pic below), preparing for summer adventures, and keeping busy!
I’ve got a new article up at Scrapbook.com about embellishing simple pocket pages and I hosted a crop at my local store. During the crop? I made an entire scrapbook album (6×8 pocket pages) – yes really!
The trick was to keep things simple, and don’t over think it! Had a blast with some truly lovely women and can’t wait to crop with them again. This tends to be the busiest month of the year – and adding to it this year is Elizabeth’s track season!
She had her first meet where she ran the 4×400 (aka mile) relay and helped her team win! So excited for her – and love supporting her love of running. Speaking of love… ’tis the season for adoption anniversaries! Ranger was adopted this week last year. We tend to celebrate all dogs on June 1- since they all came to live with us within a few weeks of that day.
Can’t believe we’ve had Scrappy 4 years, Ranger 3, and Bandit 2 years! Love our adopted pups!
I’m heading back into the studio to create more content for you here as well as finishing up the sign-up info for my new online class! I’ll be watching Schitt’s Creek – a show Stephanie Howell recommended to me – as well. This show really tickled my funny bone! If you loved Best In Show – you might wanna check it out.
What are you up to these days? Lots of crafting? Year end madness for school? Do tell!
If you’ve ever taken a class from me at a craft store then you already know: I like my embellishments stored simply, and to keep things fun!
Recently I realized that I needed to make a new container – one just for random sequins. I love to call my button and embellishment jars like this party jars. It’s a party in there – full of randomness and fun. This time though, I realized that I have the perfect jar – and a scrap of purple vinyl just right to become a “party jar mix” label. [Read more…]
