March 13, 2008

I think Spring is full force in central Texas now!!! Just gorgeous weather again today!!!

Our company flew back home to Oregon today. It was a very pleasant and relaxing visit. So glad that Joe and Carmin could come out and see the kids and hang out with us this week. The house was so quiet and calm today though after they left!!!

I had a couple people ask me about the inside of the Baby boardbook I posted a couple days ago so here it is:


I gave it to Joe and Carmin for their son who just had a baby and they loved it. They couldn't wait to get home and put pictures in it!!!

Last night I managed to complete an 8x8 album that I'm going to sell. It turned out cute I think. It is themed for a girl either from birth or at a young age growing. I love the color combo on it and can't wait to do another (working on one tonite with dif papers). I'm hoping to sell this one pretty quickly - otherwise it will sit on my shelf of completed items that I won't use.

Here is the album I did last night, it has a front page that doesn't really leave room for pics or journaling and then 17 pages for pics/journaling:


Tonite I'm working on setting up papers for another book - I'm trying to decide if it is better to buy 12x12 papers and cut down to size or to use 8x8 papers and cut down to size. In my head 12x12 papers should work better but looking at it on paper it seems like a lot of wasted paper from the 12x12 papers especially when I want to use like 5 of one style and don't need any of the scraps after cutting the 8x8 out. Still trying to make sense of all it by drawing it all out and marking off what I'd cut off the 12x12's and then the 8x8's. Then the other obstacle is most papers come in 12x12 or 8.5x11 unless you can get them in the paper pads then you gotta make sure enough of each pattern comes in the pack or you have to buy two packs then I'm not really making money when I sell them - not that I'm gonna make a ton of money on each album as it is..............anywho, I'm just rambling trying to get it all straight in my head......LOL

Over and out ya'll, I got an album to work on!!! Happy Scrappin'!!!!

oh I love that baby book! What a great job you did!!!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
