I am the wife of a wonderful man, and a stay-at-home mom of three (13, 11, and 7). I love to scrapbook! Scrapbooking feeds so many parts of me like the desire to shop, spend time with friends and the crafty side. I love the wonderful products that are out there to help keep scrapping fun and energetic. I don't have a particular style because I like them ALL! I have no problem with scrap lifting ideas either. I love color, layering, and filling pages. I think chipboard is the best thing ever! My favorite LO's are 12x12 and mini albums. I love to follow the trends and read scrapblogs. I started my own blog in December of '08 because it seemed so fun! It's called Me, Myself and...Them. I blog about scrapbooking and my family.
I am so excited Christy has allowed me to be part of the Scraphappy Design Team. Here is a sample of one of my layouts. I used Sassafras Paper and Whimsy's. Lace paper by KI Memories and Thickers by American Crafts. Diecut by My Mind's Eye.

It's the last day of school,
school is officially over
& we're all ready for summer!!
I stopped by the store today
& forgot to bring this card,
but, here's a picture.
I used the ever-so-cute
Cosmo Cricket line of papers.
Everything on this card,
except the alphabet stickers,
came from a sheet of their paper.
Christy just got more of these papers in-stock too.

Happy Friday everyone!!
Christy gave me some great product to play with this week.
Below are 4 projects I did using some My Minds Eye papers;
My Minds Eye transparency quote; Bazzill stitching papers
& their stitching templates, plus Karen Foster rub-ons.
You can click on each picture for a larger view.
So here goes:
1) Bazzill stitching paper cut down to 8.5x11. I used a wide-nosed needle to weave my ribbon through the holes. Much easier.
2) My Minds Eye patterned paper - I cut the flourishes & birdies out to place where I wanted.
3) Machine stitching across the top, with no thread
4) American Crafts alphabet stickers
you are my sunshine card - SUPER easy card:)
1) My Minds Eye paper & transparency quote - Machine-stitching across the top
2) American Crafts alphabet stickers
celebrate parent day
1) My Minds Eye papers using a Fiskar border punch across the top of the blue
2) Karen Foster rub-ons - "celebrate" & the flowers at the bottom of the journaling sheet & the flower border across top of right-hand picture
3) Making Memories journaling sheet
4) Bazzill stitching template - for the birdie. I hand-cut around my stitching when I was finished.
5) Flower - hand-made (if you want instructions, let me know) topped w/buttons & twine
6) Basic Grey chipboard letters
believe in yourself card - SUPER easy
1) Karen Foster rub-ons - butterflye & tree. I applied the tree directly to the cardstock, but I hand-cut the butterfly after applying to cardstock
2) My Minds Eye paper & quote
3) Bazzill stitching template for the butterfly trail
3) Maching-stitching across paper ruffle
The Bazzill Stitching Templates are so fun & easy to use.
If you've wanted to try hand-stitching
& have been afraid to mess up your project,
these are perfect.
I still have another project I'm trying to get done,
but probably not til next week.
If you have any questions about these,
let me know.
REMEMBER: If you don't see something in-store you want, ask Christy. She special orders all the time!!

Christy is an absolute sweetie
& if you've found this blog,
I hope you've stopped by her store.
Just a little about myself:
I'm a SAHM to 2 beautiful girls (9 & 4 1/2).
I've been scrapping since 1996,
making cards since 2006.
Don't know that I have a particular style,
but I love to hand & machine sew on projects,
use border punches & lots of ribbon, buttons & twine.
If you'd like to see more of my work,
please feel free to stop by my blog:
A Day in My Blog & say hello.
This Friday, May 15th,
I'll be posting more projects.
The projects will also be in the store,
for those that like to see them in person.
I hope you'll stop back by the blog Friday!!
