So this is the invite that I made that got mailed out to family and friends. The paper is from my local craft store, and I also used in on the card as well.  I used dimensionals to adhere the front of the card since it is the same paper.  Only a few more pages left and this book is done!!  Woohoo!!  :)

Thanks for looking!!  :)

Grandkids 2

So I did another grandkids page using the pics from the photoshoot we just had!  The paper is from CTMH, and I had these word brads, so I thought I would put them on there too.  They say "laughter, memories, friends". 

Thanks for looking!!  :)

So this is a page I did for Uncle Donald.  He is not married, and has no kids, but he needed to be in here somehow, so I came up with this!!!  I found some uncle quotes and phrases online, and hand wrote them, then cut them out according to size. I also popped two of them up using dimensionals, just to give the page a little something!

Here is what the quotes say:

-Uncles are one of a kind
-An uncle is a gift whose worth cannot be measured except by the heart
-An uncle grows more treasured as time goes by
-Everything is nicer when shared with an uncle
-Uncles like you are precious and few
-An uncle makes life sweeter
-Uncles who are as nice as you are great to be related to

Grrrr, it loaded sideways!!!  Anyone know how to flip it???  Anyway, thanks for looking!!  :)


This is my niece Dalaney's page for the in-laws scrapbook.  Their anniversary was yesterday, and guess what???  I'm not finished the book!!  Surprise, surprise!!  Oh well, I will get it to them soon!!  I finally got some new ink for my printer, so hopefully in a few days I will finally be able to get the book to them!!  On to the page!!  This page uses all CTMH products.  I had bought a kit a while ago called "You and Me.  I saw the one layout they used, and I wanted to use it for my neice. The pictures I edited to have the sepia look, cause it went better with the paper.  All in all it was a fairly simple layout.  The only thing I wish I would have done differently is used my swirl stickers instead of the swirl stamp.  Oh well, next time!!  :)  Anyway here is the page, along with a few close ups!!

Thanks for looking!!  :)

Blog Candy WINNER Repost!

Soesty!!!  You won my blog candy!!  Please leave a comment with your mailing addy!!  :)


So I have also been working on my in-laws scrapbook, and their anniversary is this Friday, and I was hoping to have it done by then.  I don't know if that will happen though.  My photo printer ran out of ink, and I've been having a hard time getting more. The joys of living in a smaller town.  :(  Anyway, I did a couple of grandkids pages.  I kept it simple (of course), and used the same papers for both pages. 

So this top pic shows how the pages look in the book, and of course it loaded sideways.  Whatever.  The next two pictures are close ups.  I used green chipbaord letters for "grandkids" and some stickers in my stash for "aren't they grand". 

Thanks for looking!!  :)

You're a great friend...

So a few weeks ago I won 3 digi stamps of my choice, and I made a card for a friend.  She is having a gastric bypass done, and I wanted to send her something to say I am thinking of her!!  Now this friend is always having dreams of zombies chasing her, and has the best sense of humour, so when I saw this sentiment, I knew I had to use it!! 

The colour combo is inspired from the movie Sleeping Beauty when the witch turns into a dragon.  I had looked for a certain digi zombie image, but just couldn't find "the one", and I saw this guy in the Zellers flyer, so I cut him out and mounted it on cardstock and glued him on.  I embossed the purple cardstock using my big shot and used the twill tape hoping to achieve a zombie look.  Anyway, this sentiment just cracks me up!!  And I hope to make my friend smile!!  Anyway, that's it for this!!

Thanks for looking!!  :)

I'm a winner!!!

So a few weeks ago I did a blog hop, and found out today that I won some blog candy!!  3 digi images from Graphicat Stamps.  I chose three sentiments that I have not seen anywhere else!!  I am already planning on using one on a card for a friend who is having a gastric bypass done!!  I'm so excited because this is the first time I have won something doing a hop!!!  :)  I'll post what I create later.  I have to let it soak in my creative juices for a little while before I can make the card!!

Ok, so I know I said I would do the draw on Friday the 7th, but I can't wait that long!!  :)  So I wrote all of your names on a piece of paper and had my daughter draw the name, and the lucky winner is....  Soesty!!!  So, Soesty, please either comment here or email me at goddessdunbar@hotmail.com with your snail mail addy please!!  :)

More pages....

 I've been plugging along with the in-laws scrapbook, and have a couple of pages to share today.  Their anniversary is coming up the end of this month, and there is still about 10 pages or so that I need to get done!!  Yikes!!  Breathe, don't panic!!!  :)  Anyway, here is what I've got for you to see!!

So the first page you see is me and my husband on our wedding day.  I used a textured white cardstock as the base.  The pictures were framed with white glitter paper and navy.  Our wedding colours were navy and silver, so I was trying to keep with that theme.  Pretty simple, but I love how it turned out!! 

This next page is my kids.  The top picture is my daughter, about 1 day old.  We were still in the hospital, and the bottom picture is my son, about the same age, and in the hospital.  Again, keeping it simple!!  I found these little round sticker things and used them all up the side.  I used my Big Shot from SU for the scallop pieces, and on them wrote all their birth info.

Close up of the stickers.

Thanks for looking!!  :)

World Card Making CANADIAN Blog Hop!!!

Hey everyone, today is World Card Making Day and we have a whole lot of Canadian crafters out there!!  To celebrate, a bunch of us got together and created this hop!!  If you just happened upon here, and would like to participate in the hop you start here, with Tara!  If are already participating, you should have arrived here from Roxy!  I have a couple of Christmas cards for you today!  I have been busy trying to get these done, you know, before the snow flies!!  :)  So here is what I have for you to see!

So right off I am going to apologize for the pictures.  A photographer I'm not!!  These were taken in my window sill, so that's why all the white space.  Anyway, this first card is on a 5x5 kraft cardstock base.  I used burgandy paper from Stampin Up and DP is from my local craft store.  I love this paper!!  Note to self: must get more!!  :)  The ribbon is from CTMH, but Stampin Up has it too.  And the button is from my stash.  I used some hemp twine to tie around the ribbon and through the button.  Buttons are not my friends, and I have a really hard time with them, so I was so happy with this!!!  :)

This card is the same, except the base is 5x6, and I used a green button rather than a burgandy one as above.

I think this card is my favourite!!!   It's white 4x6 cardstock, layered with black and silver.  The tree stamp is from "A Tree For All Seasons" from SU.  I used White Perfect Puff to get the "snow" effect.  I also used some stickles on the "ground", but I will use the perfect puff next time.  The sentiment is from the "Holiday Wishes" stamp set from SU.  The snowman was in my stash, not really sure where he came from, but I think he fit this card perfectly!!  Going to have to find more of him!!  :)  I also coloured the snowmans scarves and mitts hanging from the tree in different colours with sharpies. 

Another view.  Hopefully you can see the dimension the "perfect puff" gives!! 

And, if you're feeling lucky, here is a wee bit of blog candy!!  I have Halloween chip board, "baby" gift trim, dimensional sentiments from Basic Grey, book plates and an assortment of jewels, buttons, and felt shapes from Artsylicious.  So, are you feeling lucky??  Great!!  All you have to do is leave me some love people!!!  You can follow me it you like, but I only want you to follow if you like what you see!!  I will do the draw on the 7th the old fashioned way!!  I will post the winner here, so be sure to check back!!  :)

So that's it!!  Your next stop is Nancy.  Thanks for looking!!  :)
