Wedding Time

It's finally time for my brother's wedding! Seems not that long ago that I was working on sample invitations and making save the date cards. Since my gift to them was the save the date cards and invitations, I am not giving them a huge gift. I made this canvas wall hanging for them. It's made from a Quick Quotes kit that I found at a Scrapbook Convention that I attended last month. Super easy and quick to put together. I ordered the picture of them from the photographer that did their engagement photos. The die cut tree and all the other pieces came with the kit. I'll be away for a few days, hope you have a great weekend!

Climie vs Neuvy

One more scrapbook page from my Austin, TX trip! This is a page I made to show the goaltenders from each team. Climie is (was?) the goaltender for the Texas Stars, and Neuvirth "Neuvy" is (was? - not sure what next season will bring) the goaltender for the Hershey Bears. I found this hockey rink paper at my local AC Moore. I cut the words from my cricut, matted the 4x6 photos on some orange cardstock and that was it! Super easy page but I love how it turned out. It's one of my favorite layouts from my scrapbook. I put a little bit of journaling in the upper right hand corner. You can click on the picture to enlarge it and read the journaling. Thanks for stopping by!

Hockey Scrapbooking

These are a few more pages from my TX vacation scrapbook. These pictures are from the Calder Cup Final (AHL) game that I went to see in Austin TX. I had so much journaling on my other hockey pages, explaining what the pics are from, I thought it would be redundant to add journaling to these pages. The titles pretty much describe the pictures. I got the sketch ideas for the pages from this blog. I used my Cricut to cut the titles. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I appreciate it!

Hi, These are two projects I made for swaps. The card swap had to follow a sketch (which I've since lost/deleted the image of, so I can't share it with you, oops!) and had to use the colors blue and orange. The image is from CC Designs. The recipe card is for the Iron Chef recipe card swap. We were each assigned an ingredient (mine was onion) and then we had to design a recipe card using our ingredient in a vegetarian main dish. This was pretty difficult. Who knew it was so hard to find a vegetarian main dish with onions in it?! Hope you're having a great week!

Scrapbook Pages

Hi, These are a couple more scrapbook pages that I made of my trip to Austin, TX in June. For the first page, I cut the title with my Cricut and used one 4x6 photo. On the left & right sides of the page, I dry embossed a wavy pattern. I thought the page looked too plain without it. The journaling says "New haircut & highlights - Frenchy's Salon, Austin TX." The second page shows a single 4x6 photo with me and a few friends I met while in Austin. I talked to these ladies on the Texas Stars facebook page prior to my trip to Austin, and then we met up during the hockey game. Everyone is so nice in TX, it's easy to make friends there! I dry embossed a tag and journaled on the tag. I cut out the title on my Cricut. Hope you are having a great week!

Cedar Park Center

Hi, Thanks for stopping by my blog! I've been working on some scrapbook pages to highlight photos from my trip to Austin, TX in June. This is a 2 page 12x12 layout I did on the hockey arena, Cedar Park Center. I don't consider myself a scrapbooker, but I am really happy with how this came out! This layout was really quick & easy to put together. I used two pages of patterned paper, some tan cardstock that I inked the edges with brown ink on, and a few embossed elements. I used a Lasting Impressions brass template and embossed a few stars and the Cedar Park Arena title. All the photos on this pages are 4x6, so no cropping involved there. I got the idea for the sketch at this blog. She has some great sketches that are wonderful for making quick pages using 4x6 photos.

The journaling says "Cedar Park Arena is the home of the Texas Stars. 2009-2010 was the Stars 1st season. They have a great fan base already. I saw the Hershey Bears face the Stars for Games 4 & 5 of the Calder Cup finals. The Bears won both games! Austin TX June 2010." It is really hard to photograph 2 page layouts! I hope you are able to see my layout okay! I feel like the picture doesn't do it justice!
