September Scrap Class

This month, I focused on putting pockets/envelopes on scrapbook pages.  This page has a journal box hidden behind the main photograph.  While this page is a fall page, it expressed how I was feeling about my vacation this summer… THANKFUL!  It was a wonderful trip and I enjoyed Maine especially!  What a beautiful place!

Creating a pocket is a breeze.  Just put Sticky Strip around 3 sides of a photo mat or photograph.  Slide a journal box behind it (I made the journal box about an inch smaller and an inch longer than the photo mat).  Done!  To make the cut corners on the journal box tag, I used the Hexagon punch.

Technical Tuesday

OOOOH! The new downloads have me very excited!  I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those downloads!!  Some of my favorites are the Burlap Ribbon, What a Day Pocket Cards, and the Witches Brew Washi tape!!  Click here to see all the latest ones!

So, I thought I would share a page with you.  It’s a continuation of my goofy book.  I actually corrupted a few kids into my web of goofiness.  Then I corrupted their dad!  What a blast it was to have them all making faces with me!

Tech Tues on Wednesday

I had my week planned out.  I was going to post to my blog once a day.  Well, instead of scheduling my thank you card on Thursday, I posted it on Tuesday!  *giggles*   Oh well, bonus for you!  So, I downloaded some of the new MDS downloads and just had to play with one of them.  I used the “Old School” digital set for this page.  DSP and embellishments.  With all of the mugs that I have acquired over the years, I didn’t have room for a title or anything else!  I still like the way it came out!

Here’s the link for the newest downloads!  Check them out! They are super cool!  August 27th downloads

Love pics – 2

So page two of my “pictures I love” book is about Erich.  This picture was taken in 2007.  It’s hard for me to believe that my son was about 8 when this photo was taken and he is 14 now.  UGH!! Where did the time go?  Well, I know where it went because I was there.  Still, it’s hard for me to believe!  So one of the neat features on this page is that I created a punch!  See that wide flag?  That’s all me!!  WOO HOO!! I recently discovered that you can create your own stamps and now, I am hooked on doing it!  YAY, me!! LOL  Also, I did something I never do!  I tilted the photo a bit!  I think I like it!  *giggles*
