Scrappin' Sports Stuff: Tae Kwon Do

It's sharing day! I recently made this layout for the Scrappin' Sports Stuff online store. It features a cool die cut overlay which makes scrapping fast and easy! The overlays come in a variety of sports themes, too. Check out their blog post for complete instructions and the supply list for this project.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I'm thankful for the many family and friends who make my life so special, the blessings we receive and the joy in sharing so much of it with you. Take time today to tell someone how much you love them - I know I will!

Scrapbook Express: New QuicKutz Release!

It's QuicKutz release day at Scrapbook Express! We are taking orders for the Black Friday release dies today, so get yours while they last. I received the Cupcake Liner die which is designed to create scalloped borders for your sweet treats. But these projects are just a few examples of how you can use this same die on layouts, cards and altered items.

My layout above uses several Cupcake Liners layered together to make a border. I loved using the vintage text paper in several places. Details for this layout are here.

This fun Christmas card also uses the Cupcake Liner as the "crowning touch" for my Bo Bunny 'Tis the Season products. Details for the card are here.

And for this ornament I stretched my creative wings (ahem) to use the Cupcake Liner as a scalloped dress for this teddy bear angel. Details for the ornament are here. You CAN use the Cupcake Liner die to make actual cupcake liners! I just like pushing products beyond their original use to get more out of my money. Be sure to check out Scrapbook Express for their customer appreciation days going on now. Happy shopping!

Scrappin' Sports Stuff: Victory Field

Here's my first project for the Scrappin' Sports Stuff design team. I scrapped some photos from our family trip to see the Indians play late this summer. I had fun mixing up the baseball supplies on this one. A complete list of products and the instructions for making this layout are here.

I handcut some bats from one paper and added a knotted ribbon.

I also used a lasercut baseball, bat brads and more ribbon on this cluster. Be sure to check out the Scrappin' Sports Stuff online store for great themed products. Check back later this month for another SSS DT project from me.

Paper Genie Designs

It's official! This week I launched my new Etsy store called Paper Genie Designs. I sell handmade cards, altered items, scrapbook kits and premade layouts. I am getting some items loaded, but it will take a while to fill it up. If you are a local Hoosier and want to avoid shipping charges, please email me to make arrangements. I appreciate all the support and encouragement from friends and family as I start this exciting new adventure. I'd especially like to thank my pals Cheryl and Susie for their TLC. Be sure to check out Cheryl's Etsy shop "Purple Bow Crafts" for her amazing knit creations. Now who needs a layout?

myStampBOX Card Share

Here are a few of my latest projects that feature myStampBOX stamps. The first card is for my pal Susie who celebrates her birthday today. I used the Tree for All Seasons and Lines of Life stamps.

My second card is for my friend Celeste who also celebrates her birthday today. (How nice of them to coordinate that for me!) I stamped the background with stars from the Deck the Halls set and stamped the sentiment with Sigh, Gush, Gasp.

What have you been working on lately? Link me up!
