Ayla's 1st Year Scrapbook

So I have been working on scrapbooks for my kids, and finally finished my daughters!!!  She will be 6 next month, so I am 5 years behind, but I got it done!!!  ☺  I didn't do a typical scrapbook for her.  I chose cute/funny pictures to scrapbook, and didn't really worry about recording the firsts.  I still plan on scrapbooking some of them, like the first time she crawled, etc.  I have a baby book that is half filled out with those important firsts recorded.  Maybe one day I will transfer them to a scrapbook page, but for now I am happy that I finally finished this!!  ☺

Commissioned Wedding Album Part 2

So my last post showed the progress on the wedding album.  I have finished it, and want to show you the rest!!!  :)

This is the Bridal Party page:

Cake and First Dance:

Last page, Mr & Mrs:

I also took this book and had it engraved at the same place I did the baby scrapbook, but I wasn't as impressed with it this time.  Some of the lines were really hard to see making it look incomplete (to me).  But, living in a small town leaves you with limited options, and unless I wanted to drive for 2 hours, there wasn't much I could do!!  The important thing is my customer loved it!!  ☺

Commissioned Wedding Album.

So a few weeks ago, I completed my first ever commissioned scrapbook.  The customer was so happy with the result!!  She contacted me again recently and has asked for a wedding scrapbook!  So here is what I have so far:

Intro Page.  Fabulo(us).  I used For Always paper from CTMH, glitter chipboard letter, and some flowers. 

Here's the Story of Our Love. This is the For Always WOTG from CTMH.  If you have not purchased or played with a WOTG (workshop on the go) you don't know what you are missing!!  I call it "scrapbooking for dummies"!!  It's impossible to make a bad layout following their instructions!!  :)  Anyway, the only change I really made to this layout is the tag on the left page.  I added that so they would have an extra place for journaling!!

The Dress.  I used La Belle Vie papers and embellishments from CTMH for this layout


Journaling tag.

He/She Loved Me First.  Double layout for brides father and grooms mother

Heart bling!

Getting Ready double layout.  I used For Always paper from CTMH.

Embellishment I made using black tulle from CTMH and a brad from my stash.

Ceremony double layout.  Again using For Always paper and purple (wedding colours are white and purple). 


Bow using purple ribbon from my stash

Same purple ribbon around title block.

Purple shimmer trim I found at Micheal's I think! 

Thanks for looking!!  ☺

CTMH July Specials!

So July is an exciting month at CTMH!  The retiring list is out, lots of buzz and anticipation for the new idea book, and of course they have another great stamp of the month and a fabulous home d├ęcor kit for 1/2 price!!!

Now, if you didn't see it earlier I have a list of the items that are retiring.  You will definitely want to check that and order those items ASAP!!!  Most of the paper is gone, but there are still lots of embellishments and what not to choose from!!

This is also the last month to get these fabulous Patriotic stamp sets.

July's Stamp of the Month is a sweet one!! 

This 12x12 canvas workshop is fabulous as well!!  And a fantastic value at $19.95!!

It comes with everything you see, plus a stamp set!!  You will also end up with lots of extra bits and pieces, enough to make a second (or third) canvas, which you can buy at any craft store!

I encourage you to shop my online store and take advantage of these deals, you won't regret it!!  Join my online party when you do!!  Also, if you are interested in having a copy of the Autumn/Winter 2013/2014 Idea Book, just let me know and I can mail you a copy!!  There are the usual workshops and kits, and a few new twists added!!  Contact me to get your copy!

I hope you are enjoying your summer so far!  Thanks for looking!  ☺
