About Me

My Photo
I am a retired nurse and at home mom to my 2 beautiful kids Chelsea and Jake. Although my daughter is now going into third year University away from home...she's still with us in the summers. My son will be going into second year at our local University this fall. I find that I have lots of time to scrap and make cards. Lovin' it!

Designer Challenge at MCT

It's time for a designer challenge at MCT!!! This time you have to make a layout using a variety of pockets and envelopes. I kinda crapped out on this one...only one little pocket. I really couldn't add any more...I tried...didn't look right. The white pieces aren't stuck down well as I'm going to just remove these to add my pics. I'll post the finished pic of this LO once the pics are in place...her bday is later this month. This is my daughter's 21st b-day LO for her b-day scrapbook. I do a 2 page spread every year and add it to their birthday scrapbook. I have one for each of my kids...I love flipping through it...they grow as you turn the pages. Anyways...click HERE to check out the other DT projects...maybe they followed the rules better than me :) Try and make your own LO with pockets and envelopes and link it up...we'd love to see it!!

My Creative Time-Try me Tuesday-Ghost stamping

         This is my second post for today...to check out my Crafty Playtime post...pan down...

Today at MCT we are trying Ghost stamping. I made this quick little card in about 5 minutes...I had to use my heat tool to dry the white ink. I used Tide pool ink to sponge on the edge of white card stock so I could have a matching border on my curly label die....but yeah...5 minutes. I think it turned out cute for a quickie...thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :) Click HERE to check out our other awesome DT projects!!

Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time!

It's Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time...time to use up those scraps. This is a sad confession...a little background is required. I store all my 6" patterned paper pad scraps in the pad itself. When I was searching for something to use...I had 3...count 'em 3 of these MME pads in various stages of use. Brutal or what? As a result I had quite a few scraps from these pads to use. My card base was not a scrap however. Love how this turned out...so pretty! The card is based on a Lori Whitlock card purchased on the Silhouette site...I used the LO, the base cut and the leaves...otherwise...everything else is a MCT product. Thanks for stopping by...click HERE to check out the other DT projects...and pan down to see the products that I used.
