Pocket Scrapbooking and Silhouette 103

I have been working on an album for my grandson and wanted to share with you this latest layout. I also wanted to show you some of the embellishments that I created with my Silhouette. I will be teaching how to use Edit Points, the Eyedropper Tool, how to work with a Colour Palette and much more in a Silhouette class tomorrow night (Sept. 23).

I used some of these papers from Bazzill Basics, Captain Adventure collection as well as these Studio Calico wood embellishments.

These are the embellishments that I created and/or altered using my Silhouette Machine.

Hope this gives you some ideas about doing your own Pocket Scrapbooking.

"Journey" Kit for SGD

Happy Monday, everyone!  I loved the papers from the Marion Smith "Nirvana" collection so I decided to make a few kits for the store. The kit could be used for a Vintage layout, a Travel layout, a Celebration layout, etc.

I also used some wooden embellishments from Prima "Time Travelers" Collection and some tickets from Tim Holtz.

Have a good week!

Spending my day crafting with Prima

I hit up Scrappin' Great Deals yesterday and walked out with a HUGE Prima stash!
I am getting excited for my classes with Prima coming up soon, are you?
And I saw a huge shipment of Prima goodies had arrived
So of course I had to grab some asap!

I primarily stuck to the new Coffee Break line
I love any coffee or tea themed crafty items!
Here's what I've made so far

I used a card from the cute little 3x4 Note cards
and some 3D stickers

and lastly some amazing chevron crystals!
I'd link them up but they are no longer online as I bought the last one ;)

Hope you like my Prima creation!
Happy Crafting,

Happy Friday! Sharing with you today a Christmas card with a Memory Box  and a Cottage Cutz die, you can't start early enough to get your Christmas cards done....I always have good intentions but often it does not work that way....It's fun to share your ideas and with all the stunning dies, you have lots of possibilities for great cards that don't take forever to make.
We are making this one for Donate and Create, September 17 at 1pm, no need to register just bring a donation for the foodbank, if you can, and a basic tool kit!
