Sunny Day scrapbook page

I love this layout as I wanted to include all these photo's of the girls playing in the pool in Mexico. I used the Sunny Day scrappin' kit for this layout. I love this colour combination of Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

Christmas Jingle demonstration

I had prepared more samples to show and to talk about for the scrapbook demonstration that I did on Global TV Saturday morning however we didn't have the opportunity to show them. So here are a few of the pages that I created using the Christmas Jingle scrapbook kit. This kit is available until June 30 2010 so it is a great kit to have to scrapbook Christmas '09 after you've developed your photo's! It is a great colour combination of Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.

Cards using the Christmas Jingle Scrappin' Kit

Here are a few samples of some cards that I made using the Christmas Jingle kit. This is something that I have seen done over the past few years and I finally got around to making them with a Christmas kit for this year - and I am so glad that I did. I used approx 1/2 of a Scrappin' kit along with a pkg of Very Vanilla 8 1/2x 11 cardstock and some 5/8" Real Red grosgrain ribbon and I made 15 cards. I still have lots of materials remaining. For each customer that purchased a kit from me at any of my workshops this fall, received the instructions on how to make all of my cards.
I received my inspiration from the blogs of Andrea Walford, Stamp with Jeanne, and S.T.A.R.S.
Check back for more samples!

How many more days until Christmas??

This Avent Calender has become a new tradition in our home that started last Christmas. I made this with a magnet board and attached magnets to the back of the watch part containers. I decorated it using last Christmas's designer series paper. Each day, instead of treats, we put in a piece of paper with a special Christmas related activity that we will do for the day! Some examples that we have used are, read your favourite Christmas story, bake sugar cookies, go for a walk and look at the Christmas lights, watch the Grinch that stole Christmas.....The kids run downstairs every morning to see what activity we are going to do that day!
