Boo!! EEK Scream........Halloween!!!!

Can you guess what all those lovely paper packs are for!! You guessed it....Halloween mini albums. I pulled out the paper, the embellishments and my cricut so that when the kids go back to school next week I am going into full scrapbook mode (ok I can do the laundry and cooking too but that's where I draw the line! ) I picked up Ghost and Goblins and Harvest Gathering this week at Joanns (sad they were out of the sticker packs) and the other 2 I picked up last year after Halloween. Can't wait to get those creative juices flowing!!

New storage for my Cricut Cartridges

My sweet hubby picked up this great storage container for my cricut cartridges from Joanns. It holds 16 cartridges which is great because I mostly use my SCAL to cut on my cricut. This little diddy fits in my scrapbook bag so I can take it with me on my scrapping journeys!!

Flower Power Board Book and Paper Bag Albums

While I was on vacation in between the stitching I also got some scrapbooking done once we got back home to my craft room. This was very fun to make. With the leftover supplies and cuts from the paperbag album I made a 4x4 mini board book album from an children's board book. Both were fun to piece together. I already have a couple more kitted up to start once the kids go back to school.

Are you feeling Froggy?

Making mini albums is one of my favorite scrapbooking things to make. I picked up the album for $0.50 and the paper/sticker kit I picked up for $1. It was a fun album to make. I can't wait to gift it!

Vacation Stitching Part 2

Two more of my vacation stitching finishes. These were fun to stitch. Top one is a freebie from Lizzie Kate called Hello Spring. Bottom one is a Zipper Kit by Bent Creek called Summer. I didn't add the buttons when I took the picture.

Vacation Stitching Part 1

While I was in the mountains with no cell reception or internet service (I knew in advance) I had packed a bag of kitted projects to get some stitching done. I didn't want to being 1 big thing to stitch so I brought a bunch of little things that I could get finished up easily.

The top is a Lizzie Kate Freebie called Liberty. The bottom is from a Bent Creek leaflet titled Cold Snowman.

Wishing and Needing Fall-A Finish

So happy to get some stitching done. I was tired of looking at my stash and wondering why it seemed to be growing. It has been over 100 degrees here and the result has been some not so nice sun burns. I am waiting for fall to get here to sunny central FL so that it will maybe be in the 90's instead :0) This is Lizzie Kate's In All Things Give Thanks. Fun and fast stitching on 28ct evenweave using DMC threads.
