moving along

i planned to post this yesterday, but oops! i got sidetracked. {grin}


i had been hoarding a bunch of the SassafrassLass papers for awhile. it is time to start using stuff before it gets too old! i have one more sheet with another tricycle on it. i should check to see if i have any of Aidan riding the famous "pink-used-to-be-red" tricycle.

i think my hoarding of scrapbook supplies is wearing off on my kids. they come into my scrapbook room and ooh and ahh with me. they are especially thrilled when i hand over a sheet or some scraps. it makes me smile and i envision what they may create with it. but they leave, put it into their paper basket and go play something else. what is with that?!

and on to what i planned to post today....

i gave you a sneak peak of the next class layout earlier this week.

athletes do a warm up before they start their routine. some artists spend some time sketching or doodling to warm up their hands. this scrapbooker sometimes has to do some practice pages. secret is out!

this is one of them:


i love that new paper punch. well, actually i just bought 2 that i really like. and used both of them on this layout! oops! i just noticed there was a 3rd punch that is also new. yup! love it too. addicted, did i hear you say? slightly, i reply.

these photos were leftovers from last months layout. they never made the cut for it. but i thought they looked so cute on this one. Kristian told me that this is one of his favourites.


i bought the "2 inch scallop circle" first, knowing i would use it a lot. then i kept thinking about the one i left behind. it was given the really creative name of "real estate sign". hmmm.... the other is an edge punch called "scalloped scallop". kidding me? the scary thing is i bet that those names are heavily discussed, not just written down and tossed in a bag to be picked. or maybe that is how it happens? thank you ek-success. the names may be odd, but i LOVE the shapes!!


yes, that would be cheesecloth. my scrapbook room is right next to my kitchen. bamboo skewers are also really handy to have on hand as well. you just never know what will make it onto a layout anymore.

oh, and the pink edging? the new distress ink from Ranger called "spun sugar". now that is a creative name!!

and go and congratulate my friend, Heather. she is an amazing scrapbooker who recently started to dabble in digital. now she is waist deep in the digi world! check out her latest designs for Baers Garten. very inspiring work, Heather!
