    the top & bottom of the journaling because I had the space
    available.

Scrap Pink

This past weekend was our Scrap Pink 3 Day Event.  What a huge
success!  18 of the nicest ladies came to scrapbook for all 3
days.  We had lots of food, lots of talk & lots of
scrapbooking!  (What we didn't get was lots of photos...I forgot to
take a single photo...can you imagine?)  And we were able to raise
over $700 for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer
fund...seriously cool!

Thank you to everyone who came...who bought raffle tickets...who donated prizes...you rock!

And the winner is...

Congratulations to Mindy Fisher! 
Mindy won the September Contest...and a $20 gift certificate to About
Memories & More...yeah, Mindy!

And the kits for October go on sale at 10 am Thursday, October 1st!  Here's a peek of the kit:

DSC_0032

The colors are prettier in person...trust me!  This kit makes
me happy :)  Three of the papers are double sided, so a Halloween
theme is completely optional.  There are a few other little details
that missed their photo op...buttons & bling...they're a little
shy.  Get your kit early...we only have 8 this month & when
they're gone, they're gone!

The Temptations

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with tickets to see the
Temptations.  Now I know, we seem a little young for that, but it's
one of my husband's favorite era's of music...that and the 80's...go
figure.  Saturday night we headed down to Prochnow Auditorium on
the NAU Campus.


P1050636

P1050638

Obviously not the original Temptations, but fabulous none the less.

P1050644

That
guy in the middle is Otis Williams.  He's the last living member
of the Temptations.  He's been doing this for 48 years.  And
he's still fantastic.

That's Otis on the bottom right.

They still dance & sing...& it's still wonderful!

We used the new We R Memory Keeper Hybrid
Page Protectors for this 2 page layout.  They're fast...they're
easy...and everyone who has tried them has love them!  You can
still complete the pages without them, just mount the photos on a base
cardstock.


Here's a closer view of the left page:



DSC_0016


This protector has a 2x12 inch strip of
cardstock in the side next to the holes for the album.  A little
tip for using these:  Adhere the front & back piece of the 2x12
inch strip together.  Put a glue dot on each end of one
side.  This will hold the strip in the protector & be mostly
un-noticeable.


Here's a closer view of the right page:


DSC_0010


This page has a 6x8 page in it.  Love it!


And here are the backs of these pages:

two pages, including the hybrid protectors.  Kits are just
$5.  Get yours before they're gone!

DSC_0038 

Here's what you need for the easiest page you've ever made in your life.


  • four 4x6 photos

  • one background sheet

  • four 1/4 x 12 inch strips of print paper

  • one 1 3/4 x 1  3/4 square of the same print paper

    mitered the corners by laying the strips all down & adhering them
    leaving 1 inch from each end unglued.  Where the pieces over lap
    you cut them at an angle creating a mitered corner.  then I added a
    little adhesive under the pieces to keep them in place.

  • I cut a tree out of another piece of paper & then popped it up on foam squares


Told you it was easy!

A fabulous day

I'm working on a project for the Scrap Pink girls that involves your
best friend.  I needed photos for the project so I grabbed my best
friend Audra & my husband & we headed downtown for a photo
shoot.  I must say, photos under cloudy weather turn out mighty
fine!  Rain on your camera, well, that's not so good...but it was
worth the chance!  Here are some photos from our adventure:

DSC_0091 I love the funky buildings downtown...you've seen them before...they make fun photos!

DSC_0102
This one cracks me up...mostly because we climbed up on these 3 foot
high pillars...the ones that are supposed to keep your car from hitting
the light post...it was fun!

DSC_0093
I told my husband that I wanted him to lie on the ground (in the middle
of the filthy alley) & focus on our shoes...this is actually the
effect I was going for...kinda cool! 

DSC_0113Boy, Audra's eyes are sure blue today!

DSC_0137Another favorite wall...

Have a happy day everyone!

    paper.  You could use this space for another photo or for
    journaling.

  • cut out your title & adhere on top of a cut out star

Day 14 of the 30/30 Project


DSC_0001


Here's what you need:



  • six 4x6 photos

  • one sheet of 12x12 cardstock for the background

  • one 3 x 11 strip of print paper

  • one 3 x 11 strip of solid cardstock for the photo strip

  • one 3 x 4 piece white cardstock for journaling

  • two 1 x 2 pieces of white cardstock

  • corner rounder


Here's what I did:



  • I used the QuicKutz Photo Frame Border to
    cut out the film strip.  It cuts the centers out of the strip so
    you can line up your photos to fit behind it.  If you don't have
    the Photo Frame Border, you can cut a 2 1/2 x 11 inch strip out of black
    paper & cut each of your photos to 2 1/8 x 2 5/8 and adhere the
    photos to the top of the strip.  (personally, I like the
    border...it's fast & easy to use)

  • adhere your photos to the back of the strip

  • corner round your background cardstock on all 4 sides

  • corner round the left 2 sides of the print paper , the right 2 sides
    of the journaling block & the corners on the long sides of the
    small 1 x 2  pieces

  • arrange your photos & the film strip

  • tuck the journaling piece behind the film strip & make a light
    pencil mark down the left side so you keep your journaling where it
    belongs

  • adhere it all down

  • add the small 1 x 2 pieces, partially tucked under the two big photos


If you'd like to create your page exactly like mine, there are six
(6) kits available today.  They include everything needed to make
this page, including the Photo Frame Border.  Kits are just
$5.  Get yours before they're gone!

All I've got to say is....print your photos.

DSC_0009


1369...that's how many photos are right there.  That's what
happens when I don't print photos often enough.  And the sad thing,
this is April through Kendall's Birthday (9/7).  In my defense,
there are about 300 family photos there from a photo shoot...so that
knocks it down to 1069.  Still.  Good thing
scrapbookpictures.com had a .10 cent sale...these photos will be going
straight into photo sleeves & into my scrapbook project.  As much as I like to look at my photos in iPhoto, there is nothing that compares to holding an actual photo.  They make my heart happy. 


Print your photos.  Please. 

Recap of last night's Open House

Last night was our first Fall Open House & Craft Bazaar...and it
was a LOT of fun!  We did make-n-takes...sampled Irish Cream
(yum!)...tried new products...shopped...and chatted.  It was so
successful, we'd like to do it again in the spring. I cannot thank you
enough for coming!


My husband demo'd the Photobook Creator by Unibind
If you missed this fun gizmo, stop by the store & I'll show you how
easy it is!  In a nutshell, you purchase photo book covers...just
like the ones from the big name retailers that sell photo books...but
you fill it how you'd like.  I filled mine with double sided
cardstock & bound it into the cover.  The covers have resin in
the spine that is heated up & in 3 minutes you have an amazing
book!  The applications are endless!  You can make a
traditional photo book, bind actual photos into a book or use your
scrapbook paper.  Actually you can use any paper you
want!  Books range in price from $5 to $10...pretty darn
cheap!  Don't you think this would make an excellent gift for the
holidays? FYI...we sell the machine that heats the spines...it's
$65 & includes a book & photo creator software...but we also
have one to use in the store & would be happy to bind your
books.  We're pretty sure you're going to love it so much that
you'll want one too!


The winners of last night's door prizes are: 
Jamie Miele, Laurie Schwartz, Linda Shand, Sonja London-Hall, Debbie
Marxen, Lisa Thieman, and Joan Arentz.  I'll be making calls this
morning to let you know, but if you read it here come on down & get
your prize!


And for those of you who missed out on last night festivities, we've
decided to continue the QuicKutz sale through Saturday.  Select QuicKutz are 40% off...and
they're good ones, too!  Get yours before they're gone!  Sale
ends Saturday, September 19th & is limited to stock on hand.

Here's what I did:

    distressed flower. I did them by hand...didn't trace, just cut. 
    You can do it!  If you're not sure, watch this video:

12/30

Day 12 of the 30/30 Project


DSC_0139


Here's what you'll need:



  • five 4x6 photos (the one of the dog is cut down to 4x4)

  • a base cardstock (I used black)

  • 1.5 x 12 inch strip of two different pieces of cardstock (the black glitter & the orange glitter)

  • 1/2 x 12 inch strip of two different pieces of cardstock (the black glitter & the orange glitter)

  • 2 x 4 inch piece of white cardstock for the journaling

  • 12 googlie eyes

  • hole punches in a variety of sizes or the QuicKutz die Starry Night Border cc-bdr-047

  • an embellishment or the QuicKutz Graveyard A2 embossing folder and a 4x6 piece of black glitter cardstock

  • sand paper (if you embossed)

  •  a 1 1/4 inch circle punch and a 1 1/2 inch circle punch

  • foam squares to adhere the moon


Here's what I did:



  • I used 3 horizontal 4x6 photos & one vertical 4x6 photo.  The photo of the dog was cut down to 4x4

  • arrange your photos on the base cardstock but don't adhere yet.

  • cut the Starry Night Border out of black glitter cardstock into
    a 1 1/2 x 12 inch strip & a 1/2 x 12 inch strip.  Poke out the
    holes from the die cut...or punch holes using various sized holes.

  • cut a 1 1/2 x 12 inch strip of the orange glitter cardstock.  Adhere it to the black one of the same size.

  • cut a 1/2 x 12 inch strip of the orange glitter cardstock.  Adhere it to the black one of the same size.

  • arrange your page & adhere it all down

  • add googly eyes on the glitter strips

  • emboss the graveyard design on the black glitter paper

  • using sandpaper, gently sand over the embossed image until the white core of the cardstock starts to show through

  • trim around the graveyard scene & adhere to your journaling piece

  • punch a 1 1/4 inch circle out of orange glitter paper...discard the punched out circle

  • use the 1 1/2 inch circle over the hole left in your paper from the previous circle, creating a moon shape.

  • adhere the moon with foam squares


Here's a quick video on how to make a moon out of circle punches.

How to make a moon out of two circle punches from Kirsten Mead on Vimeo.


I have to be honest here...I got the idea for the moon from Kwernerdesigns here
(that girl is AMAZING!)  I didn't watch her video...it could be
totally different.  (I have a bad habit of not follwoing
directions...doesn't always work out so well for me...but in this case,
our moon is great!)
