Trying to get my mojo back...

I have NOT had any mojo lately. We bought a new couch and we are ready to return it because we haven't gotten anything done since we got it....ugh. It is so stinkin comfortable, you never want to get out of it.
Anyway, I have been wanting to get back into the swing of things, so I went blog surfing for some inspiration and came across this card....
I liked it sooo much, I went and made one very similar to it. I couldn't leave the inside sad and lonely, so it too got some lovin inside too.
These are the things I used to make this card:
Stamps: Sweetheart, With All My Heart, Teeny Tiny Wishes (you need this stamp set), Birthday Bliss
Fun stuff: Circle Brads, white satin ribbon, dazzling diamonds
Punches: Extra large fancy flower, scallop oval, large oval, small oval

Our sweet little Lucy has arrived....and isn't she just precious???? She finally arrived on Saturday 4/10/10 @ 4:32p.m.
She weighed in at 7 lbs. 12ozs. and was 20" long and just perfect in every way.
Grandma couldn't be more excited.

Lucy's other scrapbook....

This scrapbook I made for my new granddaughter .... still waiting to be born...but 4 days late so far...ahh but who's counting??? {That would be me...the anxious and excited grandma} ha ha ha
Anyway, this scrapbook doesn't hold as many pictures as the one I just posted....see previous post...but I still like it. This was made with 2 huh? Here is the inside....and notice the little notches...
Well....peeking inside there are some pull out pages for more pictures. Cute huh?
I got this idea from that UStamp group I joined, and you'll never guess who the designer was???? Yep, Becky Roberts, my absolute favorite. She does such fun things.
So, hopefully Lucy gets here soon, or grandma will have a dozen different scrapbooks of her.

Lucy's scrapbook....

So, this is what happens when you granddaughter is overdue in coming into the world....Grandma starts making all kinds of "BRAG" books to take into work when she's born. My daughter in law was due on April 2nd and I've been so excited I started making brag books to put pictures of her in. This is just one of the two I've made.

This is the front. I plan on putting a picture of her in that empty space on top.

This is what it looks like when you open it up. Look at all that empty space just waiting to have pictures of her put in there....I can hardly wait.
Did you notice those tabs on the side in the picture above? Well when you pull them out there is more space for pictures. I really should have turned this photo around huh??? Sorry bout that.
Then you tuck those tabs back in, and pull out the other set of tabs....and even more space for pictures of little Lucy....that's what they plan on naming her.
Here's a shot so you can see both tabs somewhat pulled out so you can see all the room for pictures of my new little grandbaby.
This would make a fun stamp camp too.
Anyway, hope you liked it ...hopefully it will have pics in there here real soon.

Stationary Box

If there's anyone out there still peeking in on my blog, have you noticed I haven't posted lately? I have been a busy little girl in my craft room. First, I want to show you the super cute Stationary Box I made. I got the directions from UStamp. I saw this and fell in love and had to make one. I'm thinking we need to make one of these for a stamp camp here soon. This is what it looks like opened up. How cute is it? It has two drawers. One on the top to hold cards, and the bottom drawer pulls out and holds envelopes. Or, you could use it for anything you wanted to actually.
This is a picture with all the cards I made to go inside. Such a fun project. What a great gift this would make.
I have also been busy making all those "freebies" everyone earned from stamp club.
This is only 6 of the 11 that I had to make. It was fun to make them for my customers, and hope they like them.
I'm just giving you a sneak peek at one of them. This is what it looks like on both sides....
This is it opened....The notepad is velcroed in so it can be removed for easy writing. Inside the pocket holds 4 envelopes for the 4 cards in the pockets on the outside.
Here are the four cards made with one of the notecards peeking out so you could see how it works. I got this idea from the one and only amazing Becky Roberts. You should check out her blog shes so talented. I stalk her blog....he he he
Have a great day and thanks for peeking in today.

Stamping 411 challenge

Okay, I really am killing two birds with one stone, if you really think about that saying, it's not a very nice one. Anyway, this card covers two challenges. I have joined Ustamp with Dawn and should join it's great. Click here to check it out. They are having a color challenge to use Ballet Blue, Green Galore, and Pretty in Pink. When I first read those colors I thought, "what a strange combo"....well, I love the colors together I think they work great. Then I took the Stamping 411 sketch, and this is what evolved. I used my For All You Do stamp set and the Stampin Up Elegant Bouquet embossing folder on this card.
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a great Easter Eve.

April Fool's Day....

I thought this little bunny was pretty cute....and easy.
You need the following punches:
large oval, small oval, 1" circle, 1 3/8" circle, 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle, 1/4" circle and some fishing line, and a white gel pen. I took him and put him on a basket I had made earlier.
I think he's quite handsome myself.
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a great day.
