Holiday Spirit

I wanted to share a few holiday layouts with you to get you in the holiday spirit. So, turn on some Christmas music, get out your scrapping supplies, and lock the door : )

This is one of my favorites using a 8x10 TTT transparency:

We make ALOT of cookies!
I love including my daughter's artwork on my pages:
It's always such a chore getting a good holiday picture!

And the best part is they were all created using past TTT kits! Don't you just love TTT kits!!!

Flea Market Finds

My good friend was having a sale of items she found at a flea market. When I saw them I knew I had to have them for my mini albums. All I needed were "S" hooks and I had a new, vintage, display for my mini albums. Here is what I found:

Here is an old shutter. Someone had added an old garden wire to the bottom to create a basket. I added "S" hooks to the shutter and then to the round closure of my mini albums. I also put some of my minis in the basket! New display- $5!

Here is an old fence turned in to an adorable shelf. New display- $5

And here is a vintage garden basket. I used the swirls at the top to hook to my minis and will use the basket at the bottom to hold them too. New display- $5

So the next time you are out at a flea market look for some new inspiration to add to your scrap room. You never know what you will find! Happy hunting : )

Transparency Tuesday

Every month the design team creates pages with transparency from the Transparent touches store. Sometimes they are full 8.5x11 pages, journal spots, bracket blocks, or the fun ones that come in your kit. If you have never tried a transparency on your pages I suggest you check out all the fun options there are available for you in the store.

November Contest

I know this begins the busiest season of the year but I hope you make some time to create fabulous layouts! As November unravels I am ALWAYS reminded to remember the people, places, and things I am thankful for. So, for the November Contest, I challenge you to create a layout of the people, places, and things YOU are thankful for!

This layout is one my favorite and always reminds me of how thankful I am for my family!
Also you don't have to use a TTT kit this time (you must be a TTT member though) but if you do use a kit I will enter your name into the drawing twice. So lots of chances to WIN a great prize from TTT!

Due date for Contest will be November 30th. 2 page layouts count as one entry. The more times you enter the more chances you will have.

Let's get to work and start scrapping. Please post your work on the message board, on the blog or the facebook page (if you post on FB please provide a link on the comments of the blog or on the message board.)

October 2011 DT Reveal: Kit #1

Fall is everywhere right now. I loved everything fall about this kit from the fun little notecards by Jillibean soup to the cute little chipboard shapes. The best part about the kit was how versatile it was....especially if you live where it is still 80 degrees outside and not a whole lot of fall! Here is what the design team came up with.
