I am on a roll!

The box ... A Christmas Tale

Merry Christmas! 

We were up early with the kids opening gifts. They had a blast! I have some great pictures but the excitement was a little much for my youngest and during nap time while the other two played I got to play in my scrap area. I decided to make a box. Yep simple as that sounds I made one using my Fiskar's blade, cutting mat and a ruler. Still can't get enough of my BoBunny paper and it was perfect! 

 So I have been eyeing the new cartridge by Close to my Heart. I wanted this cartridge to make these boxes but took a look at the booklet and tried my hand. Not too bad.
I love how it turned out! Now to finish the inside! My little guy is up and although he is playing right beside me with his trucks. It is a little distracting! He is too cute not to stop and play with. 

We moved the toy room and my craft area around so now I can watch the kids play or jump on their trampoline and craft. Charlie has taken to playing with his cars on the top of my desk, everyone is happy :) 

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas family pictures are up!

Last weekend I printed off my family pictures taken at Barb Weir Photography. Combine it with this amazing  sketch from Karan from Sketchabilities and the chance to win a 25$ gift card from Scrappin' Great Deals (MY FAVORITE STORE) and got to cut up some of my new Carta Bella Paper and voila! 

Star cuts, banners and some fussy cutting. Lots of inking and layering. 

Christmas Day is a very nice collection to work with! The colors are very rich! I love it! 

Merry Christmas! 

Break out the BoBunny ...

It has been such a long time since I've scrapped and even longer since I've blogged. Today, I decided I needed to scrap. To relax and get creative. It is also the third time this year that I have gotten the shingles and it was suggested a little R&R.  It has been a crazy time with work, kids, school and just life in general. And after an afternoon of scrappin' and I am feeling great. 

This past November we had our family pictures taken by Barb Weir Photography. I have tones of beautiful pictures to scrap. And these pictures are perfect! So perfect ... that I broke out my "kept" BoBunny collection. Anyone that knows me, knows how I love my BoBunny and normally keep the paper and do not touch it. Well these pictures were calling out to me to use this! I based my page on Creative Scrappers Sketch 238. 

This is one of our casual pictures. 
I used my Martha Stewart punch, Close to my Heart Cricut Cartridge, Fiskar's circle punch. Tim Holtz ink, a few buttons and some really cute wooden snowflakes that were left over from one of my SGD kits that Lori had put together. 

 Fussy cutting, inking, distressing and layering, I enjoyed taking my time and getting back into crafting.
 I love hidden journalling so my tags can all be popped out and recorded some of the fun moments of this shoot.

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Have a great Christmas! xoxo
