Fall Scrapbooking Process Video

Hello everyone.....things are cooling down here a bit, at least enough that I could get my first batch of marinara made today!  Our tomatoes just now decided to go crazy, which is fine with me :)

Hubby is out scouting deer, so it is a good night for me to get some major crafting done, I've really had the bug lately here is my latest process video.  This is a fall layout featuring two of my grandkids, Caprice & Cascade, using Echo Park papers from the 'Fall In Love With Fall' kit.  I don't usually go with a 'single' kit for layouts, but I kid of challenged myself to do it, and I did a pretty good job, the only other things I used were Nuvo Crystal drops, some twine a black piece of Bazzill cardstock and some black washi tape.  Not like me at all (to not mix and match on my own).

Here is the video, I hope you enjoy!

TWO Scrapbooking Process Videos!

Hi everyone!  After a short Sumer season, I am getting back into the scrapping and crafting mode.  I have made two process videos in the last week, which is a miracle for me.

This first video is an Easter video (I know it's not exactly Easter season, but these photos were on top of my stack :P!  I apologize for the amount of the process that was left out, my I kept looking up at my screen to see my video had just unexpectantly stopped taping....still got the majority in, with lots of stills at the end.

This next video is a camping video, which has photos of my husband from a few years ago, featuring a handmade tag with some little embellishments that  I made with dies and washi tape. And some Felicity Jane stamps.

I was going to add some still of the layouts, but I'm having a hard time uploading from my photo library.  Anyone else have this issue? has been busy here at 'Rocky Pastures,' (our little farm)....we had a pig roast last week end with about 50 guests.  Stan built a pit lined with pumice block and we roasted a whole pit.  It was a lot of fun with great food and company.  Can you believe I didn't take one photo?!!

The garden is flourishing, and time for freezing, canning and preserving.

Hope you are all well, and enjoy the videos!  Until next time,

Scrapbooking On the Go

Just a quickie, featuring a very quick video I did on Scrapbooking on the go.  I do this often when I'm going out of town.  I know, for instance, that I will be up later ø than the family members I am traveling with.  In this instance, I went with my daughter to a class she was taking out of town for being a teaching reading specialist.....the location was way out by the I knew I'd have some down time in the hotel with not many resources around to travel to...So I was perfectly happy with my 'on the go' papercrafting stash I brought with me.  A quick view of my must have's when I travel:
I realize after reviewing the video, I said my  storage box was about 1/2" IS about 1/2" thick, and holds 12x12 papers comfortably.  It's just nice and compact, and I can slip it into my suitcase easily.  I didn't mention, but also pack a small shoulder bag (carry-on) with my Cuttlebug, stamps, inks and the tools I show in the video, I put in little zipped clear make up bags...all visible and easily accessible.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Altenew Sketch Challenge #1

I decided to participate in Altenew's first Sketch Chellenge they have up over on their blog:
Here is a copy of the sketch:
And here is a copy of a layout Ashley Horton created using the sketch:
Here is my take on the sketch:
I used Altenew Matjestic Bloom to accent the photo, and the background paper & cut aparts are part of Felicity Jane March Scrapbooking kit.  I also, sponged some Rose Quartz ink on the background to soften up page.  The black border under the photo is crepe paper that I stitched and gathered.  Finished off the layout with a few rhinestones sprinkled here and there.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
