This class has three projects to help you get ready for the holidays. One card will hold a gift card on the inside, one card is folded to hold money and the treat box is the perfect size for candy, or some homemade cookies for neighbors, teachers, etc. Each class attendee will receive a printed copy of the templates used in class, and will be emailed the template files for future use, after the class. The cost of this class is $5.00, or FREE with a $30 order. Here are the available dates:

November 3rd, Tuesday, 10am to 11am

Please RSVP to or (916) 332-2441 at least 1 day in advance to give me time to prepare enough materials.

3rd Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Layout

These pictures crack me up! The journaling says, "You were far more interested in goofing around than eating dinner. A true test of our patience that night. You're lucky you're cute."

All materials used in the layout are from the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit, except for the Playground Designer Buttons (blue button) #116313, and Naturally Serif Sizzlits Die #113453, used for the title.

Great Friend Slider Card

Slider cards are so much fun, and really easy to make. When this card is tilted from side to side, the butterfly twirls across the card. Products used:

2nd Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Layout

Here's another 12x12 layout done with Sunny Days Simply Scrappin' Kit. I love these colors! It's hard to see in this photo, but the clouds at the bottom of the page have the title, Hot Dog Lover, on them. I used my Sizzix Big Shot and Naturally Serif Decorative Strip Die with Whisper White Cardstock. All other materials on this layout were included in the Simply Scrappin' Kit.

Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit

I love, love, love this kit!! The colors are so bright and cheerful and the entire kit is very versatile. This is my oldest daughter, back when she was about 6 months old. Good grief, hard to believe she's gonna be 8 in a few short months! As you can tell, I do not scrap in chronological order! I only scrapbook when I'm inspired by a photo or a story behind the photos.
Kit #115700, $19.95
I'll be posting more layouts done with this kit soon!

Great Friend Matchbook Gift Card Class

I taught this class a couple of weeks ago. It was a lot of fun to teach and very easy!

Product used:
  • 1 3/8" circle punch
  • Word Window punch
  • 1/16" hand held punch
  • Great Friend stamp set
  • Pirouette Pink cardstock
  • Riding Hood Red cardstock
  • Whisper White cardstock

This is a matchbook style card and when you open it up from the bottom there is a pocket inside to slide a gift card into. I love this stamp set! It can be found in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog.

A Beginner Blogger.......

Okay, so I know the Blog name is kinda corny. I don't tend to be a very witty person, to the point that many friends have helped me with titles to my scrapbook pages. So, I was challenged today to come up with a name for my blog, something representing scrapping and easy to remember. And up popped a memory about my favorite sayings from my little girls. When both were very little and learning to talk they both said, "Me loves you." Scrapbooking is about preserving memories and I couldn't have come up with a better name to represent that!

And so begins my blogging journey....... (wish me luck!)
