Expecting Baby Book

When I was asked if I had any ideas for a baby memories keepsake book, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I had seeing this wonderful book made by: Kelly English-Triggs and was dying to make one. I also found more inspiration from Pat Pobst, thanks ladies for sharing your wonderful work.

I made this book for my SIL’s BFF. Not only did we make this together but we also got to spend the day together which is a rare thing. Scrapbooking is not only for the wonderful memories you create but it’s also the quality time spent with people you love.

Supplies used:
Papers: Simple Pleasure
Cardstock: Desert Sand, Twilight and Bamboo
Stamp sets: Playful Alphabets, Baby Impressions
Inks: Cocoa, Desert Sand and Bamboo
Embellishments: Simple Pleasure Stickease
Inspired by: Kelly and Pat

Calendar Page ~ December 2008

Wow, one full year is already gone. 2008 was a good year, lots of changes for my family and I and for lots for my friends too! Not all changes were good but for the most part I'd say 2008 will be one of those year we'll remember.

Now that my calendar is almost done, I'll take it down form it's place of honor and add a second page for which month to complete one full year of memories. I decided to keep it simple and work with level 1 "Let's get Together" collection. I don't think all get to it any time soon. But once I'm all set-up in the new home you can bet I'll be working on completing this great keepsake.

It's funny not only is the year almost done but my choice of colour combination is also done, you see I used this paper as an inspiration to paint my Scrapbooking room.

I'm thinking "Emporium" might be my next choice for the new room. Who knows?

Christmas Cards ~ Creative Basic Collection

I’m in true denial, Christmas is just around the corner, we sold our house and I’m moving at the end of January. Here I am still making Christmas cards and with the Canada Post strike I’m not even sure if they’ll deliver them this year.

The thought of packing up the entire house and MY SCRAPBOOKING room is just too much. What do I pack first?

Anyways, these latest cards were done with the Creative Basics ~ Evensong Collection (too bad we’re all out) it was lovely paper. As you can see I used the same template as before, just different papers.

Did I mention moving in January! I guess I'll start packing tomorrow or should I go Christmas shopping or should I start shopping for a new kitchen for the new place. You thought you had a full month!!!!
