HAPPY TUESDAY!!!! I am super excited to show you Kasi's Birthday Mini album.....I used the Birthday Bash Imaginisce paper collection and embellishments which can be found at GENERATIONS CRAFTING....I just LOVE the bold and brights colors in this collection.

Sunday I spent the entire day crafting and creating this mini and I just had such a great time. I still have to journal this special day but the mini is complete.

HAPPY MONDAY TO ALL!!!!!! This weekend I spent tons of time creating some fabulous projects for Generations Crafting. I am super excited to be a part of this team and get back to producing layouts and albums for my family.

Today I will share with all of you the double page layout of Kasi's Birthday Party which we celebrated at the park this year. I will be posting a mini album tomorrow morning that I created with the rest of her pictures. I did the same thing this year for Damian's birthday memories.

Imaginisce has some beautiful collections and for this layout I used the BIRTHDAY BASH papers and embellishments. The papers are all double sided and each page has one side that has glossy accents on the pattern - just AWESOME!!

I made all the brads on this layout using the i-top and the rub-ons from the Birthday Bash collection:

Hi everyone......I am having a GREAT weekend......Last night Kasi and I had a nice mother/daughter evening scrapbooking although she ended up in bed with a horrible migraine :( and the boys had a fabulous father/son evening at the Marlins vs. Braves baseball game....they even had their picture taken at the stadium which of course I ordered this morning and YES a layout will follow. Anywho - Kasi is better today, she went to her gymnastics class this morning and we spent all day scrapping.

OK enough about that....so are you ready to see my sneak peek of the double page layout I have created for Generations Crafting?? I will post the entire project on Monday morning with more close up pictures.

Just had to share this super cool tool with all of you!!!

YES my #1 crystals are Swarovski but I always add to much adhesive to my projects...sometimes my stones fall upside down right into the glue gggggrrrrrr and it's just crazy. The crystals and studs for this tool come with the adhesive already on them so all you have to do is place is on your project and set it with the heat tool - no mess, no problems......I LOVE IT!!!

I got mine over at GENERATIONS CRAFTING. They have a "Referral" program which is great. Click HERE for all the information and how it works.

**** GERERATIONS CRAFTING will have this tool back in stock on Monday 7/19/2010.

If you are interested in receiving a discount on your first order, use Referral Code: ref-0fbfd at checkout.

Here is a quick HOW TO video of this awesome little gadget!!

Hope you all have a fabulous week.

Just wanted to pop in and say THANK YOU to my friend Christina of Creations with Christina for helping me add the name to my new blog header!!!!

Of course I have NO idea how to use Photoshop......trust me that last header.....well it was a total nightmare and I have NO IDEA how I added the name to it LOL!!!!!

I wanted to give my blog a Shabby Chic look with the pink and brown and the rustic white. I picked the header from SHABBYBLOGS.COM they have such cute headers and backgrounds but I kept mine simple with just the header and a plain background color.....also changed the color of the text.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

HELLO......Apron card

HI EVERYONE!!!!! Well today is my first official VACATION DAY - WOOT!!!! Nothing like spending a beautiful Mother/Daughter day with my sweet Kasi while Damian is in baseball camp. We did a little shopping, signed her up for Gymnastics, had lunch together and just hung out. She is the most amazing daughter - I LOVE HER SO MUCH!!!!!

While out shopping we stopped at Ross and I came across a 7 Gypsy paper pad for only $2.99 - what a bargain. It's the Capri collection and the colors are just amazing.

As soon as we got home, I logged onto the Cricut MB and found that there was an update to the Gypsy adding the new LITE cartridges so I downloaded them right away and got to work.

I want to THANK .......

for all their Gypsy inspirations. Their videos are great and they both create the most amazing cards. This card is dedicated to them just to say HELLO and THANK YOU for all their great work.

Supplies: Savory Cricut Lite Cartridge; Gypsy*; Card Stock: Bazzill; Pattern Paper: 7 Gypsies Capri collection; Twine: Papertrey Ink; HELLO stamp: My Pink Stamper stamps*; Tag punch: SU; Yellow Ribbon: Elements; Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink; Misc sewing. (*HALLMARK SCRAPBOOK)
