Very Merry Tags
I hope to get them soon enough to start my Christmas cards/projects. They are supposed to be released in mid/late November... I hope it is more towards Mid than Late. :)
Get em while their hot though - once they're gone, they're gone...

I thought I would share this card drive going on right now at Jennifer McGuire's Blog.
I know that when I am in a funk, creating cards gets my creativity flowing again. And what better reason to start creating cards than for this worthy cause.
So if you have a minute and want to create some cards for this family, please click here for all the details.
I know I am going to get some done! :)

Unfortunately this Summer has also brought some bad news. We lost our dear friend Chewy to cancer. He was a loyal canine companion for the last 10 years. We're missing him dearly:
My apologies for the long hiatus. I hope to be back and blogging (and scrapping!) on a regular basis soon...

I got this news over at one of my fave blogs: Just a Scrappin
First up: Cricut Cartridges are going on sale for $39.99 at Michael's next week - INCLUDING Lyrical Letters and Life's a Beach at some locations. Read about it here.
Also, Provocraft is offering an AWESOME special! You can preorder the ever elusive Home Decor and a new one named Jubilee Art for $99.
But wait! There's more! :)
You can pay in 3 easy payments of $33 and get a free set of Cricut Markers, BUT if you pay in full, you get a FREE Jukebox and markers.
You can see the details and the cartridges here. This is a great deal! I ordered mine today... :)

Aren't they adorable?? I love this idea. I got these for .99 plus $4.99 in shipping. I know the shipping sounds intense. But the book itself retails at $10. So I still got myself a good deal. And that's what these sites are all about. :) Here are a few more. I haven't ordered from them (yet) but I have them on my "Check Daily" list.
Flowers to Flourishes
Happy Shopping! :)

I blogged a while back about a great way to store your ribbon using these cool Ribbon Ring Tags.
Now Ribbon Ring offers these tags in a new JUMBO size.
They accommodate ribbon up to 2 inches wide and right now they are ON SALE!
Even if you don't have a lot of really wide you can hang four or five pieces of 3/8 inch ribbon side by side on these new tags. You can sort them by color or manufacturer - or however you want! How cool is that:
Right now, the bundle of 30 and bundle of 90 are on sale till March 8th. You can order them here.
I am also giving away a pack! Just post a comment here on how you store your ribbon right now, or what you like about these ribbon rings. You will be entered in the drawing to receive one promo package from Ribbon Rings free! :)
Winner will be drawn on Thursday, March 12th. Good luck! :) Thanks so much to Ribbon Ring for your generosity in providing the prize!

Just got an email from one of the online stores I shop from... There are two new cartridges set to be released NEXT MONTH. Woo hoo! Here is a peek:
Life's a Beach: This is perfect for those vacation photos you need to scrap...
Lyrical Letters: A really pretty font that would be great for cards. Don't know what the special features on this cart are yet though...
Both of these are full featured cartridges and will start shipping in the middle of next month. I am getting Life's a Beach (waiting on Lyrical Letters) through Memory Making Crafts. If you want them - order soon! She needs to put her order in by March 3rd for mid March shipping.
I can't wait to see this one in person! I have lots of cruise photos waiting... :)

It was a fun album to do! It was my first acylic album, so there were definitely some challenges. But all in all I like how it turned out. I didn't realize we had so many photos of us together! :)

The blog post that featured the project was featured on the Valentine's Day Blog Carnival at Craft Critique - thanks so much guys! :) I just love their blog...
I finished an acrylic album that I will be posting very soon too. I gave it to my hubby on Valentine's Day... Here's a peek at the cover:
More photos to come! :)

I made a Twilight inspired box to hold little notes from my husband in. Right now, we are using it to write one thing we love about each other every day until Valentine's Day when we will open the box up and read them to each other... I am hoping this becomes a tradition! :)
The box was white, so I spray painted it black and then covered it with sealer. Here is the box:
The quote is from the book Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. The paper covering the top and the inside of the lid is by Making Memories (The Love Notes Collection). I seriously want to get more of this paper and cover everything in my office with it. :) LOL Here is a list of other supplies:
RubOns: Basic Grey & Tinkering Ink
Die Cuts: QuicKutz
I wanted to plaster Edward's face on it somewhere, but I didn't want to get a strange look from my hubby. LOL
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

The weekend after this one, me and some friends have a girls night out planned. I can't wait! We need a girl's night out like no one's business.
Project 365 is still going strong. I have been taking photos every day. This one is my fave this week. Shhh - don't tell Dave I am stealing photos of him while he naps:
So, hopefully I will have some new project to post at the end of this weekend... Hoping to have lots of time to create...

I am so sad... I liked this magazine. They are supposed to fold more of its content into Creating Keepsakes Magazine, so we'll see how these changes affect that magazine...

Day 13: My Font - I did my own free handwriting font at YourFonts.com - this was the worksheet you had to scan...
Day 14: Countertop - Another scene from my kitchen:
Day 15: Simple Things - This is the book that Stacy Julian mentions in the Glimpses class at Big Picture Scrapbooking is based on. It is a beautiful read so far...
Scrapbook Update has em!
My favorite so far? Everything Tattered Angels is coming out with - especially a great big PINK work mat for which part of the proceeds is going to breast cancer research. What could be better to Glimmer Mist on? This is on the top of my wish list for sure...

What are your goals this year? I like everyone else want to lose weight. I also am committing myself to Project 365 this year. What's that? That is taking one photo a day every day this year. I know, I know... Crazy. I think I can do it though! :)
Here are mine so far:
I am going to try and keep up and post my photo here every day... Now I am not SCRAPPING each of these photos mind you. I know better than to think I would keep up with that goal... :)
Wish me luck! I am going to need it. Especially for the losing weight thing. LOL
