Hello to ALL!

My name is Carla and I am honored to be a part of the Scraphappy Design Team. Here's a little about me:

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.

*cannonball into summer*

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.

The card will be in the shop soon!!

new My Minds Eye projects

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:

backyard boogie:
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!!
