Gettin “squishy” with it!

Happy Monday everyone! What does hair gel have to do with scrapbooking? It’s an odd question huh? Check out these projects and you will see:

 

The jam jars on the card and scrapbook page are made with hair gel! Do you want to find out how? Check out the video:

How do you like the new camera angle? I finally figured out how to film right-side-up…It only took 93 videos LOL!

 

I know many of you are horrified at the thought of a bag of hair gel living in your scrapbook page, if that will keep you up at night just make the card instead 🙂 I am not too worried about it because if something did leak it will be in a page protector all by itself so it could only sully its own page. Besides, I can always print more photos.

 

How can you resist the squishable goodness?

 

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Ahhh, rainy mondays, love ‘um!

I love a rainy monday, it’s kinda like an excuse to putter around the house, listen to an audio book and craft. It seems like I have more hours on a rainy day than a sunny one. I can put dinner in the crock-pot, clean, and still have time to scrapbook:

 

My friend Glenna gave me these photos of my kids she took one day last fall when they were playing in her yard with the leaf blower. I love the natural happy expression on my son’s face. It is so hard to get a natural photo of him, he is either making a cheese-face or trying to look cool by not smiling. He obviously did not know he was being photographed! 🙂

I used the stencils from my new Chevron Chic SVG kit to design the page. The background paper on the second page was spritzed with ink through the stencil and the chevron zigzags on the first page were the cut-outs from one of the stencils that I saved and sprayed with ink. I hate to waste anything LOL! I love how easy it is to make a boy-themed page with chevrons, it can be hard to get decorative with a page for a boy without is getting too frou-frou. Here is a look at the new Chevron Chic kit:

Chevron Chic! SVG

Have a great Monday and til next time happy crafting!

Pastel Colors+Kraft=Yummy Color Combo!

I love kraft cardstock, it is like the little black dress of your craft stash, it goes with everything!

 

I made this card for a very dear friend after neglecting to send the card I planned to give her on her birthday (I’m such a boob!) but better late than never right?

 

I used paper from my Hugs & Kisses digital paper pack for the background. I simply printed them from the Windows Picture & Fax viewer (how easy is that!) and it automatically scaled them to a quarter sheet. If you want step by step instructions for that please see this post.

 

Well, that is all I have time to write today, the kids have been on break all week and running this momma ragged! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
