Money For Nothing...

Hello Everyone!!!
Well lately it seems that I have to just dedicate my blog to Laura at The Paper Trail!!!  She is an awesome creator and artist.  I decided to do her Purse Mini-Album and I think it came out great!  I am sending it to someone and I hope they enjoy it.
Here's the link to my YouTube video showing it.

I also did a tutorial on a paper bag background paper.  Sounds kind of redundant, doesn't it?
But it's a quick way to make a metallic paper that you can use to wrap chipboard.  Hope you like it.
And I even speak in this YouTube Video!!!  I know, calm down...LOL!!!

I have been having a lot of fun making mini-albums.  It's a whole new world to this rubber-stamper/scrapbooker and I am loving it!  I wish I could quit my day job and be able to craft all day, everyday!
Thank you so much for stopping by and take care!

Get Your Kicks...On Route 66!

Hello Everyone!
This past weekend, I was able to get a mini-album that I had been wanting to do...done.  It's based on two mini-albums that I had the pleasure of learning from by Laura at The Paper Trail.  I melded her Purse Mini-Album (Laptop Bag) and her 3-ring Mini-Album into a Suitcase Mini-Album for my niece Tina which has gone to so many places around the world.  I hope she likes it and uses it well.
I also did a quick video for this so you can see everything that is included.  

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope that I can create and share more with you soon.  Take care.

Creating Challenges

This weekend was totally awesome!!!  I know I only seem to talk about my weekends, and that's because I work a full-time job all week, consisting of at least 50 hours with 2 hours of traveling a day, so there is no creating time til the weekend.
One of my doggies, Sweet Pea, woke me up Saturday and Sunday at 8 a.m., so off to the studio I went.  I have entered two swaps on Y.P.P. (Your Paper Pantry) and was able to finish 90% of my Travelogue.  Next weekend I will try to start on my other, which are ATC's.  Can't wait!
I also decided to join in on the fun at Trina's Life is Scraptastic Blog Challenge for June!  It's her second one and since I have joined since the beginning (her first one...LOL!) I decided to try my hand at her new challenge.

The challenge was to may a 12 x 12 Layout with the colors: Pink, Green and Black.
I actually didn't know if I could do it, but I found my niece's pictures from her Communion and her sister was wearing a pink and green dress...WHAT LUCK! LOL!!!
It was a lot of fun to do, and can't wait for the next challenge!



Now it's back to work time tomorrow and creating will be on hold until the weekend.
Take care everyone!
