Crafting On The Go IS Possible!

Posted on

Hi everyone! Welcome to Saturday!

I am currently on board the Disney Wonder, slowly making my way back to Vancouver. Even though I know how jam packed with activities the cruise companies like to keep us, I decided I might need a tiny bit extra to keep me busy. I’m not a huge fan of trivia games, bridge tournaments or a lot of the other types of activities offered on cruise ships! So, before I left, I packed a kit of supplies to keep me crafting. Christmas Market season is fast approaching so I need to restock my card displays!

Take a look at what I put together with my current Simon Says Stamp card kit, as well as some of my older ones I’ve yet to touch.

It’s hard for me to pack light! At least I’ll have plenty of options, right? Continue reading »

Playing With my Silhouette Cameo

Posted on

Welcome to the weekend! Woot! Woot!

Weekends are for playing, yes? For me, that means playing with paper and glue.

A couple weeks ago I added my Silhouette Cameo into the mix and created some super cute 3-D items. Check them out.

I thought I’d throw my hat into the ring for Lori Whitlock’s Design Team Call so went to the Silhouette Design Store and downloaded these super cute projects to try. I know that owl goody bag is going to show up at a birthday party soon!

Here’s each project. Continue reading »

Gathering Supplies

What do you get when you combine a prolific scrapbooker with an organized hoarder?


Oh, and a kit of supplies to create more than one baby album that will be harmonious from opening page to final layout. Check out today’s video to see what I mean.

As you can see I have enough supplies put aside to create all the layouts I need to for my youngest daughter’s First Year Album. And probably enough to do all the tweaks on my other two daughters albums too. Now I just need the time to do it all!

That’s all I have for you today. See you again soon!

Using a Kit to The Last Drop

Make it Monday - pinkWelcome to Make It Monday!

You may be arriving here from Connie’s site. Love birthdays + cakes + card making + things a bit wonky? Then check out her post by clicking here!

Today I want to introduce you to something that I’ve been having fun with this past week. A decision and purchase I made last month that I already know was well worth it and WAY overdue!

I subscribed to another kit club. This time, the Simon Says Stamp monthly card kit. You know you love something when you start using it right away. When you rip into the package, ooh and aah over the contents, and the next thing you know you’ve got a finished card in your hands! When you use it all up.

Kids show their love for your dinner offerings by cleaning their plates and asking for seconds, right? Well, if could have asked for a second helping of the Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit I would have! Continue reading »

Welcome to another Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop featuring many familiar Practical Scrappers faces. It’s been a couple months since I participated, but this post has been sitting in my draft folder in a half finished state for weeks so it was time to ‘get ‘er done’!

Creating a Kit of My Own

Posted on

Have you heard of the Scrap Stash Kit Club? Margareta Carlsson has a fantastic site all about putting together kits from your stash using her inspiration as a starting point. Each month has a theme and she creates a mood board over on Pinterest to help you in creating your kit. She recently added a Facebook group into the mix too.

I’ve been happily watching the activity and inspiration from the sidelines but decided to jump in this month and create my own kit. It’s not like I don’t have enough stash for a year’s worth of kits or anything!! LOL! Continue reading »
