Christmas in September?


Well I hate to say it, but I guess it's time to start getting ready for Christmas.  As crafters we take it upon ourselves to try to get crafty the closer it gets to Christmas.  This stands to reason as we all start to get into the Christmas spirit.  With the carols playing and parties going on it's kind of hard not to. 
This year I was asked to make up some Christmas signs for a friend of mine.  She was going into the "Christmas in September" Farmer's Market.  I tell you, I understand why people hold off until Christmas gets a little closer.  I had a really hard time thinking of Christmas at the end of August.  We have had such a beautiful summer/fall, I found it really hard to make "wintery" trees. 
Nonetheless, the signs were made and I'm really happy with how they turned out.  I hope she is too.  Please watch the video to get a really good detail of how the signs were made. 
If you have any questions, please email me and I will be glad to help.

Make Your Own Page Kits

I am posting today to show you the page layouts that I made using my own Page kit.  I made 5 single page layouts with the kit.  I know I could have made more, but I just received my Studio Calico June Kit in the mail.  I know that I would like to make pages with it so I set aside the kit for now.  In the background of this video you can see that I have another kit that I made up and it's ready to go.  I hope you enjoy the video and if you took the "Make your Own Paper Kit Challenge."  I hope you post a link to your video or your website, so I can see what you made.  I hope you enjoy the video.  I will also post the video showing you the page kit that I made.

Video Tutorial - Desk organizer

I keep forgetting to add my videos to my blog post.  I have an easy link button on my video software that automatically adds my videos to Youtube.  But I keep forgetting to put them here on my blog.

I know the first few videos are rather short, but my computer and I were fighting that day.  There are 10 videos so the tutorial is quite long, but I wanted to do it in real time so that you could see the process on how to put it together.  I hope you enjoy.

Updated layouts.

I have been busy working on some new layouts. I have more works on progress but because I have no computer. I have been relying on my iPhone.

I have used several different papers for each layout. The only one I used the same paper collection was for the "no smile" and the "coolsville" layouts. The "no smile" layout was the mr. Campy collection from American crafts and the "coolsville" is all close to my heart. I'm not sure of the name but it's the new travel papers from the spring and summer catalogue.

Let me know what you think.

Paris layout

I just finished another layout. So far I've finished 6 layout. I'm so proud of myself. I made a new year resolution to get caught up on my scrapbooking and it seems to be working.

For the layout I used the world traveller collection from Teresa Collins. I also used a sheet of text writing from 7 gypsies. I used a Some red roses from I am roses. That was pretty much it for supplies. I wanted to keep it pretty simple.
