4 Christmas layouts

I am actually in the pictures.

Kayana liked Santa but not enough to sit on his lap by herself.
Matt was pretty excited to get the new Zelda game - Christmas 2011

James, Aliese, and Matthew - layouts

I scrapped the pictures of the day James dressed up as Santa to surprise Aliese. These pictures are just a little over two years old. I am way behind. 
These pictures are from our trip to Orlando in 2010 - three years ago. Matt is trying to pose all GQ like his big brothers James and Brandon.

Cards, Cards, and More Cards

My scraps are out of control and in an attempt to tame them, I've been making cards - lots of cards, and while my scraps are fewer, there are still far too many scraps, so I sorted them all out and chucked a plastic grocery bag full of smaller scraps.

I know I should post these over the course of several weeks, but I am going to post them all tonight.

No 12X12 paper was harmed in the creation of the following cards - all scraps. I need to make even more cards before I make any more scrap pages.

This card features beads, paper punched flowers, and a Cricut scalloped circle.
This card is for a father's birthday. The gold is heat embossed. 
This baby girl card features a stamp I bought for a quarter at a yard sale, a Martha Stewart border punch, and some really old Prima flowers.

I found this old baby bottle die cut while cleaning out my scraps. I decided to use it right then to make a card. 
These stamps also came from a yard sale. I love yard sales. I used glitter glue on the flowers.
The next two cards are almost the same. I used my Cricut to cut the flowers. One card has veiling between the layers of paper.
The next two birthday cards feature more yard sale stamps.
Card 1 has punched flowers with eyelet centers. I am determined to mine my stash.

Card 2 has a large silk flower with a felt and crochet flower, punched borders and pearls. It didnt' scan very well.

Card 3 is made from odd and end die cuts.

Card 4 has punched flower with a button center and a Martha Steward border punch.


I painted the zebra paper on the bottom of this card. The zebra is a stamp.



The stamp on this is from Stampin' Up.
One would think that after making all these cards, I would be out of scraps - but no, I still have way too many scraps. I'll just have to keep on creating.
