Wedding Bag Books

Just a couple of pages form the Wedding bag books I just made for a dear friend.  Enjoy!

Sample pages from Olivia's Baby Book

I worked on a baby book for my new niece last week.
This was the most important page.
It was hard to do mainly because it is an 8X8 book and I was determined to get
this layout of 12 months onto a 2 page spread.
The only thing I did have to let go on was leaves
it made the whole busy page just too busy! I used a set of gluubers to hold together the puffed up flowers. (there are 6 of the little suckers!) those were the hardest ones to get together... they kept flipping so I used these gluubers (available at Archivers and if you have a Craft Warehouse close by!). All in all, They worked pretty good.
I did have to use some wet glue as well on the gluubers.
But in the end I won the "stay down and play nice battle"....
I did a 20 page album for Olivia and sent it home with my oldest when she returned home to Oregon.
Once this page came into my head I had to do it and I am so glad I did.
I can't wait to see it filled with pictures.

Scrap Room Photo's!

The scraproom is a nice and cozy room ready for our classes and projects. It has gone through may changes over the past few years and I thought it needed a new photo update with the changes for 2011...
My favorite things in my scraproom are...
In random order my Ikea towel racks for my punches, my fishing pole rack for my ribbon (Jason thought this one up from the container store), my embossing/die cutting area (love having this a separate area), my newest ink pad storage unit from a lady on ebay, the wonderful shelves my daughter didn't need any longer that hold my stamps and some display items, the awesome shelf that my grandfather made me as a little girl that holds the jars of flowers I never seem to get enough of, and of course the 2 - 8 foot tables that help me and my dear friends make wonderful cards and scrapbooks. This is a well loved room....
