Are you wearing Green??

Are you wearing Green???  
well I had to ask! I got some green shirts..I think! I will have to look, being that I lost some weight..I don't know whats left in my closet! Though as a scrapper and being crafty, I might have to make something, better yet..I could pin the invitations that I am working on..One of them on me..hehehehe. With warm weather and fresh air that comes with it..I am so excited. So guessing its time to take the snowmen down and pack them away =( I love my snowmen..but thats okay..I have been pretty busy making baby shower invitations..I am hosting a baby shower for my daughter who is here from Washington State..she is staying here until after the baby is born..woohoo. I am on a roll, but now to cut and mat and cut and adhere more..with ribbon..paper, and more!! 

The process has been a good one, after getting the printer issue straight with ink cartridge. I had ordered Stampin Up Card Stock for this! Printed Winnie the Pooh and cutting them down, had ribbon to match! typed up what I wanted everything to say and printed it out on the cardstock "bashful blue", Certain Celery for green and Soft Suede for the brown. Hand wrote the "sweet as honey"...I am excited! These will be done very soon and in the mail soon after. Anything for my baby girl's baby shower. 

While baby shower is being planned, I am also looking forward to starting the tea pot album. I have ordered some fascinating finds online, some flowers I found at Michaels, and putting my thoughts into this as a fun way to cherish that memory of a tea party with the gals, your granddaughter, your daughter..your sister..whomever. This album is waiting on the awesome finds and then will be put into action. This class, the first one will be set to Craftopia, held at Oak Grove United Methodist Church in May. You will see pictures when the album goes into "production". 
Other crafting news..did you know what my favorite trimmer is?..well let me tell you about two of those..first being, my Pink Cutterpede that I have had for years. I love it..always use it! I just ordered replacement channels online for it and found the shuttle blade for it at AC Moores..for $1.99 each. I always go back to this particular trimmer because I can count on it! The second was my Making Memories Trimmer..this one I used for multiple cutting..putting kits together etc. Only to have the blade die on me..which its a self sharpening blade. However, I have done some serious cutting with this baby! Well I had been debating on buying another..or a refill blade..then I find..the ultimate one for MEEE...Making Memories has a PINK one just like it! Oh my..ya know how hard that is to find out Michaels nor AC Moores have it! So I am on the look, best bet to use a 50% off coupon, if I can find one and a coupon for wherever I find it at..did that make any sense..LOL..oh well..its late and I need to go to bed! I just had to share with you what I am working on..and I am so excited!! 
Have a fabulous St Patricks Day...

It's March...Spring is Right Around the Corner....

I am loving some of the warm weather we are having! Then having cold right after I am not loving!! Do you all have tons of pictures for all the snow days we had?..well bring your pictures and join me on Saturday March 12th at 10 am at Oak Grove Methodist United Methodist Church. You will leave with a beautiful layout cherishing your precious pictures of your children or just the pretty scenery (which I captured as well). I am offering this class for eight due to obtaining that pattern paper. I hope you will join me. Class: Winter Bliss, 10 am to Noon, $15 class fee and $5 kit fee.You will need your basic tools, trimmer, adhesive, and pictures.

This layout inspires me to do will stickle the snowflake..two colors to choose from, if you choose to do that of course, stamp with the snowflake stamps..and another element will be added before the class..a surprise for you. Title will be cut and say Winter Bliss. I am just loving this paper!!

My Second Class with Craftopia the SAME DAY..3:30 to 5:30 is Cards, created these three and there will be Six cards total for the class. Here is a glance at the first three...

Card class will consist of six total cards. Class fee $18 with $10 kit fee.  I am in awe of the new stamp I found ~Friends~ and on this card particular card you use stickles...All of these three cards have a different border punch which you will get to try out and just adore. The ribbon may be substituted for another depending on availability. I look forward to teaching the class and seeing everyone. Pop Dots, adhesive, scissors..are required for this class. 

Other worthy News..I have been having fun organizing a scrapbook room! hmm daunting, then fun again, then well..plain tired! Though I have to admit, the best part is coming, ~Decorating~ I am in the process of working on that amongst all the other projects going on in this head of mine! Life is amazing when you can get everything done..just learning to be patient for the length of time it takes is the ticket!! Pictures will be coming soon of the organized scrapbook room..gotta get the hubby up here to do his part..ya know!

In the works is my Easter Mini Album which will be held in April. The paper has been bought, the chipboard has been bought, now that I am all caught up with this class coming Saturday, I can focus on that. Though another project has sprung up and in the works for possibly May, Tea Pot Album, upon numerous requests..Diana Jones originally did the Tea Party at All About Scrapbooks. I am not going to step on her design and re-create it. However, I will be using my silhouette to design the tea pot. It is very similar to hers, due to what we have, the same I will put a spin on mine to be different, just as beautiful and with my house mouse stamps, along with hat stamps..phrases ..etc..the project has been started on the designing scale on silhouette. Further information is coming and I am really excited about this as well.

I will be adding a class here at my house on several things throughout the month, so please keep an eye out! if you are not following the blog, you might want to!! get the latest on what is going on. I will be posting my fav scrappinnchattin finds..

Just to show some inspiration,
My handy caddy for anything that I love to use for my inspiration..holds the recent copies of the magazines I love to get. I am still waiting (impatiently of course) for my subscription to Scrapbooks Etc to arrive...where is it...I sent the card off to order it..awhile ago..good grief..but I just have to wait..wait..and these will be replaced with the current issue as soon as it "gets here"..I love my organized area! I am excited to get it completed!! woohoo

I hope everyone has a blessed weekend coming up! maybe I will be able to have more pictures available of the card class as well.
