Card #2

I am going to alter my challenge a bit from 30 Christmas cards to just 30 cards in general.  This one was cased from the Michaels website.  One of my club girls asked if we could make it so I improvised with the supplies I had and ended up with this:

I used some old k & Company papers and chipboard (the same product we used for our very first Valentine's about 4 years lol).  CTMH colour ready borders, Amore stamp set and cardstock.  I cut up one of my several copies of Romeo and Juliet to stamp on!

Use it or Lose it #4 - Paper Piercing

I have to say paper piercing is my least favorite scrapbooking technique so this was really a challenge for me!  I use a old promo kit - Everyday Celebration. 

Haven't had much crafting time lately, hoping that will change soon!  I hope you'll join us in our latest challenge and please check out the work of our talented design team!

Use it Lose it Challenge #3 - Inchies

This weeks challenge was to use 1x1 squares or inches.  It's a great way to use up those little scraps!  My layout was from Canada Day 2008, our first back in Saskatchewan.  It rained, my DH worked and the kids spent the day playing Mario Kart.  It was such a change from Devon/Edmonton...Canada Day is the best there!!  Devon had a family fun celebration throughout the afternoon with hot dogs and cake,  There was always tons of things for the kids to do.  We would then head into Edmonton and go to the celebrations in Millwoods and stay for the fireworks.  Regina has things to do here it's just not the same...and our fireworks...well...yep small city, small budget! 

Head to and check out the work of our talented design team!!!
