SD4U - April Sneak

I love days when you can just sit and scrap for hours. I've been enjoying the past few days scrapbooking in the wee hours of the night ( 3am last night!) completing layouts for Scrapbook Deals 4U. I finished 4 layouts with my kit and I really enjoyed the double sided papers and of course adding my personal touch to them.

Lately I have been LOVING ink spots on my pages and had lots of fun making a few on these pages. My full reveal will be on Thursday April 1st .. maybe you can come back to see my pages!

to purchase the SD4U Kit .. CLICK HERE!

I have a busy week ahead of me .. actually a busy month.
Creative Scrappers Blog Bounce on April 2nd... See you then!

Chow for Now!

Scrappy Mags!

Oh how i love a new scrapbook magazine. I love the fresh pages and tons of new ideas from scrapbookers around the world. The past few months I have been very frugal in purchasing the usual Scrapbooks Etc and Creating Keepsakes magazine. I do purchase the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine cause i know a few of the ladies published in them and enjoy sifting thru pages but lately i don't feel much inspiration from them.. sad to say. So i just wanted to share with you some of my favorite mags and if you decide to purchase them maybe you'll find some inspiration in them as well! If you enjoy paints, lots of colors and a different style in scrapbooking you'll love them. Or if you are looking to learn a few techniques ... these mags are awesome!



all 3 of these magazines are in French but without reading the articles you can still enjoy the amazing layouts they have to offer!

They are a bit pricey at about 20$ for one including shipping .. or you can buy 3 magazines for about 45$ including shipping. ( cad funds )

I purchase 3 here at


I also want to share with you 2 Canadian Magazines that you might be interested in..
Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine
- I've been fortunate enough to be published a few times in this magazine...


and another is Scrapbook & Cards Today
- they are Canadian Based but I find lots of the designers are from the US.
you can also download their latest issue Free !

If you are interested in a Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine... let me know and maybe you and I could swap magazines!!! I would love a Swedish, Australian, Norwegian, or other maybe?!!
Enjoy browsing and let me know if you like any of these publications!

i have...

I have to get things organized for the Creative Scrappers Birthday Bash... I created a word find but goofed in the spelling of memories... so i have to start over again - they are so much fun

I spilled a large cup of Cappuccino on my computer desk and inside my keyboard today - now i am typing with an antique... makes so much noise - must buy new one ... but it smells nice!

I have 5 overnight shifts in April... i am trying to shift trade them to something earlier but no one wants to work 1030pm-6am... i am too old to stay up all night

i have taxes to do... and not organized yet - hopefully i get some money back

i have photos that need editing - pics of hubby and i outside and eddie too

i've completed 2 layouts today.. can only share next week, i like them

i've been wondering how many people will participate in the April festivities for CS

i am happy that hubby got a new job and starts in April - being laid off was hard on him but things will be better ... much better

i have a huge box of scrap goodies sitting on my table and can't wait to play - bella blvd all inclusive is awesome, jillibean soup i can't wait to play with you ... and my new dt kit from SD4U is nicer in person

the weather was a bit chilly today and we actually saw a few snow flakes

i want a shopping spree to a store that has more than 4 shirts in my size...

i think cougar town and 2 and half men are the funniest tv shows ever!

i have a pvr that is full of my favorite shows .. i have about 8 hours of survivor to watch this weekend

i have a busy schedule ... but i like it that way ;-)

SD4U - Reveal

It's time for a reveal!
I am the lucky one playing with some Bella Blvd papers this month featuring the Estate Sale Collection. I love the colors in this paper and the versitility. It has blues, greys, stripes great for those guy pages.. and the pinks and brown for the girlie pages...

I created 2 layouts so far with my kit - and more to come!
The first is of my niece - I had a hard time taking a pic of this layout cause .. i sprayed with Shimmerz and Glimmer Mist and find my papers are curling ... sorry! but you get the message right?! ;-)

"Laugh, Live & Love

The second layout is of me. Man do I have a hard time finding words to these pages.. I think I spent a good 2 hours just trying to find a title and journaling... I wish It was easier to create About Me Pages.... I think it's time I did more of them...

"This is me"

I hope you enjoyed the reveal.. everything I used comes with the SD4U March Kit (HERE)
I only added 2 green buttons, 3 Dew Drops, and Paints.

I know some of you are laughing at the 3 words I used to describe myself..... but yes sometimes i can be generous, kind and dedicated ;-P

Thanks for peeking!

These Days - Mini Album

I am ready to showcase a new mini album for you! It's been sitting on my scrap table for about 2-3 weeks and I kept waiting for some inspiration and time to complete it. I started last night and in about 4 hours I was done.

I created this mini album using the November Kit
from The Paper Passion featuring some fabulous papers from Jillibean Soup and Dream Street. This kit has everything you need to create this mini album and many layouts! I loved working with this kit. It included everything I love for scrap supplies - great double sided papers, burlap, flowers, bling, diecuts and so much more! The only thing not in this kit is the Bo Bunny Mini Album that you can find HERE.
This mini album features photos of hubby and I on our recent trip to Mexico. I rarely add pics to my mini albums .. probably because i have too many minis sitting here collecting dust, but a few mini albums are favorites and this is one of them.
I created 5 pages for this mini, leaving one side covered with paper but no photos or embellies. Something different. I also used some brown ink and glimmer mist!

"These Days"

CLICK HERE to purchase this KIT!

THANK YOU Rosa for giving me this opportunity, I had a fantastic Creative Experience! :-)

Small Moments

I created another painting yesterday! I am hooked. These are just too much fun and messy. Speaking of messy thank goodness these paints are toxic free... Eddie ( the Cat ) thought it was ok to climb on my scrap table and put his paw into BLUE paint yesterday!!! yup... i had blue cat prints ALL over my table... he didn't seem to mind ;-)

this is another painting similar to the first, since I am making them as a collection of 3 - Same flowers, and colors that match ..

thanks to Donna Downey for the inspiration !
