What I have Been Doing.....

-- If you entered my giveaway, check the previous post to see if you won! One of the winners has contacted me so far, and the other winner has until Friday or I will be drawing another name! --

Well, today I used my lunch to edit a whole bunch of pictures of scrapbook pages I have been working on for the past month or so and will be sharing them with you all over the next week or so. Most of these are going to be 81/2 x 11 pages, since that is what I scrap in for my own albums. Today, however, I am going to share a few 12x12 pages that I put together to add to my mom's albums for Christmas. She doesn't know about them, so I am posting only here, not on Facebook. These are pictures of a cruise to Canada that I went on with her and a few older women from our church fellowship. For these pictures I used one of every single sheet from a paper pack that my dear friend Anita sent me last month! I love the colors in these papers, and am planning a home decor canvas with several papers that are left in the pad. It is going to require a huge mess being made though so I haven't really had the time to devote to it lately.

Anyhoo, on to the pictures!!! I had the name of the paper company in my head, but it is now escaping me, so I will try to remember to update this post later when  I have it in front of me! I used products from multiple different lines, including Studio G stamps and rhinestones, American Crafts thickers, Darice washi tape, Jillibean Soup banners, Heidi Swapp rub-ons, Echo Park stickers, Colorbok ephemera and a leeetle bit of Crate Paper patterned paper from "The Pier" collection.

This Post Needed a Title.... and a Giveaway!

*** I forgot to add a title to this post, sorry if anyone had any trouble linking to this post!

Hello All, can you believe it's Thursday already??? (For that matter, can you believe its almost the middle of October?!?!?!!?!) Where does the time go?!? I just thought I would pop in and share a project that I whipped up a few weeks ago for my new sister-in-law (my brother's wife). She is in the midst of student teaching, so I thought that she might enjoy some office cute office supplies to stay organized. She really loves canning, so I thought I would use a Dear Lizzy paper from a 6x6 pad I picked up a couple of weeks ago. I also used some old Amy Tangerine papers  from a 6x6 pad a dear friend sent me a year or so ago and Dear Lizzy Fifth and Frolic paper pad, as well as some labels from Heidi Swapp and some October Afternoon Butterfly and small doily stickers. I finished off the projects with some white Basic Grey mini alphas, Q&Co rhinestones and pearls and My Mind's Eye Cut and Paste enamel dots. I used some small flowers that my cousin sent me to finish off the clothespin magnets I made. So that the paper would not peel off the magnets, I used some Modge Podge Acrylic spray to finish them off.

(If you stick with the pics to the bottom, I'm sharing a small giveaway!)

I also wanted to do a small giveaway. I put together a small kit for making Christmas tags and a small card making kit. For a chance to win, become a follower and let me know in the comments and for a second chance blog about the giveaway and put a comment with a link to the post. The giveaway will be open until October 25th and I will post a winner on the following Monday, October 28! I will be picking two winners, one for the Christmas tag set and one for the card kit!
