Origami Christmas Tree Cards

I remember seeing this card and thinking who's got time to do this!!! It's super cute and not that time consuming. I was able to create these 3 in one after-noon.

A Year in the Life Part I

What do you make for a Scrapbooking friend who is expecting her first baby. I saw this idea in a book, a 2-page layout with pictures of a new born baby and a bear. Each month the same picture was taken with the same bear. It was truly amazing to see this baby growth. This is my take on it.

A Year in the Life Part II

This is the second half, as you can see it's a 12 month, no 13 month 6x6 album. The Baby was born in February, the first page not shown here is a photo of the white bear with a description of the baby's name. The last page has a small definition of her zodiac sign and her Chinese astrology. Paper used in this album: Karen Foster Design "Wall Calendar" I can't wait to see it full of pictures.

What Scrapbboking Item are you?

I am are GLUE!

You are the adhesive that keeps things together. You go through life helping others. You stick to people and try to keep people together. You like it best when you are surrounded by people and able to help them. But Glue Beware - in your efforts to keep everyone together and with you, you sometimes overlook yourself and find it hard to keep yourself together. Don't neglect personal time in your overwhelming need to socialize and help others.

Try the QUIZ for yourself, it's fun

6x6 Album

I love this template program you create 10 pages using 2 pattern papers and 2 cardstocks. The paper using for this album is from CTMH "Simple Pleasures" with antique copper brads from Micheals.
I took this project one step further by altering a ordinary 6x6 Micheals album. I used my Xyron 900 to adhere the paper to both covers. You need to remove the existing covering.

What you will find on The Scrap Zone, is my love for preserving memories by the art of Scrapbooking and so much more.

I never found it interesting to place a 4x6 photo in a “standard” album. I’ve been dabbling in the world of Scrapbooking for about 10 years now and since the birth of my two daughters, preserving treasured memories is even more important to me.

Up until now I found it somewhat challenging to create beautiful pages around photos, by coordinating colours & embellishments. I’m always looking for that WOW factor, without spending countless hours completing a page I can be proud to leave behind for my girls.

Last Spring I was lucky enough to meet a Close to my Heart consultant and just like that I fell in love with their product lines & concepts for both scrapbooking and card making. So much so, that I became a consultant myself. Both my passion and creativity has grown so much in the last months, thanks to their wonderful layout concepts and coordinating elements.

Even as a busy Mom of two and a full-time job, I really do find the time to scrapbook. Since I’ve joined CTMH I have completed my oldest daughter’s first scrapbook. (with many more to come) and I’m half way through my youngest daughter’s book. Not to mention my new found love for teaching others to create wonderful projects through on-going workshops and gatherings.

Let me share with you my love for scrapbooking and stamping. In the true CTMH fashion “let me show you how” a philosophy that has made scrapbooking faster, simpler, and easier than even before, while continuing to enhance the art of preserving memories and celebrating relationships. This has truly made a difference in my approach to Scrapbooking.
