Funny Face

This is a layout that I did today. I'm feeling a little lazy now so if you want to see the supply list you can find it at Just go to the Gallery link at the top, then scroll down to Members Gallery, and choose my gallery...I'm croppycatter on there, too. You can also see the last couple of layouts that I did too. Two of them were for a challenge and one of them is for a contest I submitted to Simple Scrapbooks. While you're over there, you ought to sign up for the message board. We have a great time!! Oh, and most of the supplies for this layout came from Crop Addict's September kit. Hope to see you over there sometime!!

Digital Scrapbooking

I've been playing with this a little and I am a hybrid scrapper. I finally found a book to help! It's called Digital & Hybrid Scrapbooking & Card-Making with Photoshop Elements. If digital scrapbooking is something you are interested in, I would definitely recommend this book. You can find the link to it all the way at the bottom of this page. I've been using Photoshop Elements for a couple of years now and have already learned a lot of simple tricks that I never knew existed. You also get a DVD with digital kits and coupons and a whole bunch of tags to use in your Photoshop Organizer. The best part about the whole thing is that it is written in English, none of that techno-blabber you find in most books like this. I can't ever see myself giving up my paper scrapbooking (love the mess too much!) but I love being able to combine both. So if you are interested, be sure to check it out. Just click on the link at the bottom of my blog and then hit the tab for the Book at the top of her web site. Right now she has it on sale, too!

Let it Snow Card

I had some play time this morning and was messing around with my new Punch Pals set. I really didn't know what to do with it so I just sat down and grabbed a piece of Bordering Blue out of my scraps file drawer. I stamped the snowman using Basic Black and colored him with Prismacolors and blended with a Prismacolor blender pencil. The top corners were punched with the tag corner punch and the hole with the Crop-a-Dile (since the boys decided to punch poop with my Fiskars hand-held punches!...the replacements are coming in today). The snowflake eyelet is from We R Memory Keepers. It is part of the Crop-a-Dile kit I bought from HSN back at the beginning of last year. I stamped the snowflakes on the background with Whisper White and then dotted 2-way glue on the snow and the center of the flakes and poured Dazzling Diamonds glitter on it and brushed away the excess. I used the 3/16" corner rounder to make the scallop strip. The rest of my supplies are blue gingham ribbon and dimensionals, both from Stampin' Up!. In fact, all of my supplies are from Stampin' Up! except the eyelet and the Prismacolors.
