Life With Bailey Scrapbook

Here are the first two pages that have been completed for Bailey's book. I am loving the new Mariposa DCWV stack and my Straight from the nest Cricut cartridge! I am having a great time getting this book going, although I have other projects that need to be worked on, however I needed a mental break from the lengthy projects in process.

What's New With Cricut & Provo Craft: Sneak Peek & Toy Story

Here are images released by Provo Craft from their "Hello Thursday" Newsletter giving us a sneak peek at what is to come in the newest cartridges to be released at a store near you. Can you guess what they will be? I am guessing that in the Limited Editions that there will be a Halloween and another Christmas cartridge. And do I see "man stuff"? I think I do! I am seeing cats too for all you cat lovers out there (I am one!). I also see some teen and tweener stuff. Hum........what will they be? I also hear that Toy Story will be your next licensed cartridge. A lot of things going on, so many cartridges, and not enough! Please post a comment and let me know what you think.

Provo Craft Monitors The World!

Today has been a crazy day in Provo Craft world. Files are disappearing, lawsuits are being filed, posts are being pulled from message boards, and all kinds of allegations are flying around! I am the last one to be surprised, after the dealings I have had with them, so I will just pop some popcorn and sit back and watch the show. Good luck to all of you! And we all know that no matter what Provo Craft does, you will all still remain loyal customers hook, line, and sinker!

Use Those Scraps!

So I have been doing some Spring cleaning in my scrap room. I save all those scraps (like we all do) and throw them in a storage box. Well, those scraps were out of control so I decided to take charge and bought some 12X12 envelopes, got out my label maker, and started sorting and organizing scraps. Some of the little pieces I was saving, I just could not believe! I have a scrap room full of paper, so once I saved the usable pieces and sorted them, I was still shaking my head. So I decided to go on a campaign to use some of these scraps and now that they are organized, I am going to keep using them instead of continuing to cut full sheets 12X12 sheets when I really don't need to. So I inked up my Anna Griffin stamp and took my lonely copics out and colored. They were really quick to color and I had fun doing it. I used chalk ink to ink the edges of the colored images, after cutting them out. So then I grabbed my newly sorted envelopes and picked some complimentary colors to mount my stamped images onto my card fronts. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss and adhered it all together. I used pop dots to mount the stamped images, added ribbon, and added rhinestones. Now I have four cards that I can use for anything: note card, birthday, Mother's Day, etc.... I really enjoyed this project as I kept it simple, it did not take me long, and I was using up my stash of saved papers. I hope I have inspired all of you to sort and use those scraps!
