Rules I live by...

In response to a Challenge set by a Sisterhood of Scrap Design Team member, Ann Seleshanko, I did a LO about my 10 Commandments: the rules I live by. This was completed for the SOS Sock Hop Crop.
This was also done with a colour scheme suggested by Michelle at Scrapbooker's Club House: Combo #2, Light purple and Grassy green.
This LO is based upon a sketch by Deanne Burton, posted on her blog: "Just my Sketches" on Feb 13, 2009.
Journaling reads:

My “Ten Commandments” (Rules I live by)

1. Work hard, go the extra mile

2. Be trustworthy

3. Remember: “Little things DO matter.”

4. Always give credit where credit is due

5. Build people up, don’t tear them down… be encouraging

6. Respect senior citizens

7. Help animals in need of rescue

8. Have faith

9. Keep the voice inside you positive; be thankful

10. Know that there is a silver lining in every cloud: Don’t give in

Party Kids (in bright lollipop colours!)

This layout of Daniel's 7th Birthday Party guests is done for the Sisterhood of Scrap Sock Hop Blog Crop, Challenge #3 [Candace's], based on the 1950's "Lollipop song!"

A "Handsome" Yearly Tradition!

This LO was done for the Emerald green and Ocean blue colour Challenge over at Scrapbooker's Club House (SBCH). I even used my Deckle Edged fancy scissors on the blocks of patterned paper! (Hard to see, it's pretty subtle.)
Here, Daniel is having his handprint placed on the wall at Roo's where we held his 7th birthday party. It's a yearly tradition!
Thanks for looking!
This 12x12" layout was done using a sketch from Deanne Burton, from her Just my Sketches Blog. The sketch is one she created on October 15, 2008. Thanks Deanne!

Sisterhood of Scrap "Sock Hop Crop" Challenge

Welcome Everyone!!
As you all know, there is a Blog crop going on over at Sisterhood of Scrap.

The SOS Design Team has been posting Challenges all week to help out.


I'm excited that today, it's my turn! I decided to make my Sock Hop Crop Challenge focus on a popular song from the 1950's, and the concept of "time." Time, darn it, passes TOO QUICKLY!!!

TGIF everyone!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have fun with the SOS "Sock Hop Crop" Challenge for today.
Enjoy it!

If you try this challenge, please link your blog or gallery in the comments for everyone to check out! All challenges are due by April 30th. I'll have a prize draw for all those who complete this challenge and announce the winner on May 1st!!!
Here’s a pic of the RAK prize…. a selection of Colorbok embellies for cards and LOs-- all colour coordinated~ plus a few other goodies not shown! Ya'll know how I ADORE ribbon... YES, that's a HINT! LOL ... teehee
Now, on to the Sock Hop Crop Challenge for Friday April 24th!!

“PLAYING” with Numbers!

The song “Rock Around the Clock” and the facts about the song involve lots of NUMBERS!
A clock has numbers on it, & the song was originally recorded on April 12 (12th day of the 4th month,) 1952. When it became a hit, it stayed at the top of the charts for 8 weeks. The song was also performed for royalty in 1979.
To earn a RAK ballot:
On your layout or card, you must include ONE of the following numbers taken from the factual paragraph above:
1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, or 12.
Combinations made with numbers from the list are fine ie: “19” (= 1 and 9) or “712” (= 7 and 12) 24 (= 2 and 4)
Include a clock on your LO or card. Your clock may or may not include numbers, roman numerals etc… Clock “style” is up to you.
***If you include both a number and a clock on the LO/card, your name will go in for the RAK TWICE (2 ballots!)
***Please note that there must be numbers AND a clock on your LO/card for you to earn the extra prize ballot. (These are separate~ ie: if your clock has numbers on it, that is considered as JUST a clock, and doesn’t count as 2 ballots.)
Here is my sample layout, featuring my lovely niece and handsome nephew!
Remember to post the link to your creation. Then we can all admire them. Most of all, have fun!!Thanks for popping by!

Tips from Piggy Tales!

Piggy Tales sent the most awesome tips in their n newsletter today! Here is the article:

Tips & Tricks

Recycle old or half-used products

As part of our Earth Day Celebration, we thought that we would share a cool tip to help you recycle some products that you already have!

Got Chipboard?

Everyone has left over alphabet letters from a number of manufacturers, but maybe you can't spell a complete word because you are just a few letters short? Sound familiar?

Take alphabet letters from all of your sources (Don't be afraid! They don't need to match at all!) and try one of the following tricks to make a cool eclectic title fit for any of your most creative projects:

* Cover all the letters with the same piece of cardstock (extra fast trick- put glue on the "pretty side", flip it over and adhere it to the opposite side of the cardstock. Cut around each letter with a craft knife and when you turn it over, TA-DA!! A co-ordinating set of letters, shiny and new!

*Paint or ink the letters to match

* Use the negative space from your punched out letters to create words. At Piggy Tales (they)overspray the patterns on our chipboard letters, making them perfect for this!

* Use chipboard in only the first letter in the title anduse letter stickers or your own handwrtiting to complete the word

Thanks for the great tips Piggy Tales!

Ocean Commotion??

Layout created for the Sisterhood of Scrap Blog "Sock Hop 2nd Birthday Crop." Did this for Challenge #1 from Deanne Burton on her Blog, "Am I a Scrap Addict?"

To create this LO, I used a sketch (Weekly Sketch #5) by Angelbear (Laura) @ Scrap My Memories.

Here you go, I took inspiration from the black and white and the Polka Dotted poodle skirt in that Challenge! TY Deanne!!

(Oh...Plus; Poodle= Dog... Ocean is a dog! LOL)

AND: You can CLEARLY see that he has one blue eye and one brown! Unusual to see it in pix. as you can tell, he is a Tri-colour Border Collie.

THANKS for looking! ~

Riding news!

I am copying this NEWSY POST from one that I made at Scrap My Memories, (= SMM)a place where I love to hang out! I also sent a letter to the family with this info in it...
I think this will be a bit long as I want to explain for those who may not know about horse shows or riding (me 3 years ago!! LOL) I hope that is OK. I have my coffee, go get yours! LOL!
Kate rode in her first show of the year on Saturday, April 18. She had entered 3 classes, all in the hunter-jumper categories- 2 were jumping and one was a flat class (not jumping)!!
Kate is 15 and she was riding our pony Oakley, who is 7 yrs old and is a haflinger-quarterhorse. She, being haflinger, is quite content to live outside all winter in the paddock (has a shelter & a winter blanket[= a "coat"] of course) with her buddies, 2 other horses. Suffice it to say Oakley ate and slept all winter, ROFL, loved those round bales of hay: BIIIIG!!!. ANYWAY- she had gained (AHEM) a few lbs. & was not totally in condition- it really is harder to ride in winter- our coach does not yet have an indoor arena for winter riding lessons. SO: Kate rode Oakley LOTS last week after school and on the afternoon Fri when she had a half day off school. She also prepped her for the show, had her all bathed and braided english style... she looked like a fancy show pony. (I will try to post a pic!)
Anyway- Kate had entered herself and Oakley in 3 classes and they PLACED in ALL THREE!!!! EVEN at this time of year--with our sweetly chubby pony: WOW. She was 1st in one of the jumper classes: 2'3 and the judges evaluate the style, control and finesse of the jumps- NOT just whether the horse just jumps the jump and "clears it." She placed 3rd in another jumper class, and 3rd in the flat class!! Then we learned she was Reserve Champion for her class! My goodness!
We are not competitive or pushy ppl, just that the shows do provide rankings and ribbons, etc... and I guess competition gives us a gauge of how well Kate is doing!
We are very proud of our girl. She just loves to ride ands we had SO MUCH FUN!!!
All of the kids from "our" barn who competed made our coach VERY proud. They ALL placed somehow; a couple placed in several disciplines and ponies who has been acting like little bums (as only ponies can) at the barn the day before during "Bath and Braid" time made their riders SO PROUD at Show time!!!!!!!!
Thanks so much for reading.

Oh- There is a pic of just Oakley on Creatively Yours too, a page Kate did when she was 13.

Here is another pic of my Hunter-jumper stars!
Have a GREAT day!!

My Scraproom/Office! And a "tip" here and there...

Hi Everyone! Here is a collection of photos of my freshly reorganized "Scraproom." I also added a few TIPS in red!

1. Welcome!

I am very blessed to have an 8x10' bedroom to create [and write] in! This room serves as my office & my creating area. I'll take you on a little tour from the sign on my doorway all the way around, if that's OK. Have a cup of good ole' maritime King Cole Tea... do you take sugar and milk?

Thanks for joining me!

2. This is the area where I write and do the journaling for my scrappy pages.

Under the desk, I also have a Brother 3-in-one printer, which you can see a wee bit. I use that mainly as my fax and copier. I have my little HP Photosmart 516 photo printer under there too. It is SO HANDY for printing pix- Peter and I love it. Next to my desk is an HP printer, my sketch binders and a binder full of SB class info. Photoboxes seen here contain older photos (2001-2002) removed from sticky albums (EEK!) and the blue one is Kate's. Inside the brown cabinet are old photo albums waiting for dismantling, my collection of CK mags- those being sorted through and ideas clipped from.

Above my desk are a calendar, framed Mother's Day drawing from Daniel; inspirational quotes on a fun floral canvas and a Father's Day drawing from Daniel. None of this matches, but it is stuff I love. The calendar, I just plain need! It is all photos of the Annapolis Valley! Love that too.

3. Next you see a very tall tower of paper trays. These are the ones from I got the "lipless" ones and they are great to use. They snap together for stability. My inlaws gave me a gift of cash and so I was able to order a few. YAY: 10!! Then, I was able to purchase some more a few yrs later when a beloved craft store 's owner retired and the store closed.

This "tray tower" contains my Bazzill Cardstock and "manufacturer paper" such as Cosmo Cricket, Cactus Pink, 3 Bugs in a Rug, Paper Trunk, Scenic Route, etc...There are some collections, like Salem (S.Route) & Playtime (3Bugs). No BasicGrey here... THAT COMES LATER.

You can also see my Bulletin Board, which I decorated to match the wallpaper border in here, LOL.

Next is my 5ft table. One word: Staples! I have 2 of them. Here is one. Here is the other. The reason they are different is that they were on special @ different times.

Then we have the Plano organizer Pete bought me a year ago for my birthday. :0) We got an awesome deal on it- a sale at Cndn Tire! Handy little rig! :o) In it I keep my heat gun, emb. powders, Grungeboard, brads and some of my collection of buttons- just the clear ones.

Eventually I will use some fabric scraps that match my wallpaper and sew a dust cover for the Plano organizer. It will be hard to dust as it is so compartmentalized, even on top! I will just hem the edges of some fabric and use it to cover the box, like I covered my Crop in Style XXL (you will see that later...Mom hemmed the fabric for me while visiting one time!). :o)

Under the Plano are my 3 boxes of photos and one that contains handmade gift tags & cards. The box I am currently working from (ie: scrapping photos from) has a little tag stuck in the label that says "Current." You can see it in the photo. That's there so I don't grab the wrong box! Easy little trick~!

Then I have 2 white cubes from Wal Mart... I turned them so they're open on one side: right in front of where I sit to scrap. I use those to store my most often used items... Zig pens, paper clips, adhesives, Xyron, post-its, labeller etc...

Do you see the "neck brush" sticking up? That is one I bought thru my hairstylist, Sheri, who purchased it for me at a beauty supply shop. I use it to whisk bits of paper and dust off my desk as I am working. I clean it up from the floor afterward! Good tip, I think...
4. On top of the white cubes I lined up square glass (metal lidded) containers from the Dollar Store. You can see that I have stored foam stamps, buttons (1 bin for black, one for white) and paper flowers in them. Tip: Square containers are better than round for storage! They stack, sit tight against one another and just generally save space. They have these at the $ store for 1.25 for tall, and 1.00 for short varieties.

A Button Fanatic Tip: it is easier to use your buttons when you have them sorted into colour families. I am getting to this point, slowly but surely! Metal buttons: I sort by "goldtone" and "silvertone." Clear buttons go in a separate jar as well.

Above my white cubes are tilt-bins I bought with birthday money at Staples one year. They are GREAT: Peter attached them to the wall this weekend! (Let me tell you, they are very secure.) In those I store punches, circle templates, SMALL scraps of trim and ribbon, corner rounders and shapers, Stickles, date stamps, paddle punches and regular punches. Each bin is labelled. On the top of the 2 tiers of Tilt Bins I store my 7Gypsies stamps, small Primas, and a few other things like Glimmer Mist.

The light source I use when I scrap is an Ott Light (daylight). I can't scrap without it. You can see it in the photo.

Just in front of the TV, I have a turning caddy (some people call it a tool carousel) in which to store my scissors, bone folder, ribbon glue, tracing wheel, Slick Writers, gel pens, multi-purpose tool, side cutters, & pencils close at hand. Love that thing!

TIP alert! I also store a set of flat tipped tweezers in my caddy. They were purchased at Canada Post (locally) where they were under $5.00 and I think were intended for handling stamps. They are GREAT for picking up small things or moving things around on a page in tight quarters!

I also have two white, 6-shelf wire paper racks where I keep non-Bazzill cardstock.

Here are the three open-topped seagrass baskets from Cndn Tire that I got on special a few years ago.

TIP: Here is my system for storing and using my scraps:

*I use the top one for patterned paper scraps.

*The middle basket contains scraps of Bazzill and Die Cuts with a View (DCWV) cardstock.

*The bottom basket contains all other scraps.

Tip: Take your basket[s] along to ANY event where kids are scrappin'! Those scraps go FAST! I took my bottom basket along to a Pony Club event last month and whoosh! The scraps went down to half! A great way to have them sifted thru, too, so u can see what's on the bottom!

Another tip: Try to periodically sift thru those scrap baskets to see what is hiding in the middle and on the bottom!

My non-alcohol baby wipes are right there in the white bin; for stamp clean-up: this is a quick and easy way to do it!

Next is the zipped up, sturdy navy blue "Travel Pack" that I rec'd as a bonus with my ScrapRack. I use it to store all my BasicGrey alphas & big monograms in. They are in Scraprack 12x12" page protectors.

6. The ScrapRack itself is next...

Here's my ScrapRack, covered.

(I made that moroccan style box with Daisy d's patt paper a few years back. I store old costume jewellery in it, for scrappin' of course!) Tip: Old jewellery can make great embellies for scrappin'!!!

7. And here it is, uncovered. You can see a bit of the "floral" section. Between the Scraprack and the Travel pack is a Cropper Hopper paper holder with labelled dividers . It contains a variety of handmade, "Slab" and " Dollar Store" pp's.

TIP: Dollar store papers can be VERY pretty! Be sure to check them out when you're in! I have found some LOVELY ones at different times.
8. Below is the other half of my ScrapRack.

Beside it is another Cropper Hopper Paper Holder containing LOs' that need to be stowed in albums. Tip: Always store your LOs standing up. Same goes for your albums!

Next to that is my pink sewing box and a plastic incline sorter containing file folders of info like DT calls, page calls, articles I am working on, etc....

Those pretty file-folders came from a Norcard elementary school fundraiser 3 yrs ago. LOVE them!

The carts contain things like my mini iron, mini ironing board, Circle Scissor, Shape Cutter, 8.5x11" cardstock, "brights" for kids' projects, misc patt papers waiting to be sorted, pigment inks, sandpaper, photo CDs, envelopes for cardmaking, etc...

Scrappy Tip: Be sure to label your cart drawers with the contents, etc.... This way you can be sure supplies are put way properly if you have a buddy working with you! I use a Brother "p-touch" Home and Hobby labeller. (*Thanks to my sister Mary- this was the most perfect birthday gift!*) I LOVE this thing. TIP: Be sure you've spelled your words correctly before you print. Who wants to waste? And, the tape refills are astronomically priced!

Scrappy Tip: A tiny iron is awesome for fixing up any creases in ribbon before you apply it to a page! I think Heidi Swapp makes one, but mine came from Regal. Try it- small and handy!

Scrappy Tip: I made a mini ironing-board as well by covering a scrap slab of hardwood with some padded fabric from a handmade high chair cover I had made, but that we no longer needed. Worked like a CHARM. It is v. small- fits in a drawer of my cart along w/ the iron.

Scrappy Tip for Cardmakers: Many stores are happy to give you their extra envelopes. They ALWAYS seem to have tonnes of them left over! I got a huge supply from a store that went out of business. They were so kind! Just ask. I told the owner what I'd be using them for. He was very happy since he had owned a craft store for years and appreciated all sorts of crafts.

9. Shelves above my carts hold mini albums, old fashioned biscuit tin (holds floss), chalks, BIG Heidi Swapp & Prima flowers, my spare journaling box and idea generator "jar."

TIP: Use a small recipe file box from the Dollar Store as a journaling box. Make a section for each member of the family and jot down things - never assume you will not forget- 'cause you WILL! Be sure to include a section for pets, vacations, quotes and song titles. Here is an article I wrote for SBCH on this very topic.

10. Scrappy Spacemaker Tip: We took off the folding closet door to allow for better access to the 4ft squ. space inside that closet!

You can see the hanging wire rack my friend Kristie brought to me. I use it to store all my Basic Grey collections in. It held calendars at the hardware store where K. works. They were going to discard it and told her she could take it home. Thanks Kristie!

On both sides of closet, facing the centre: "cube"wire racks like these.

Bottom of closet: Yellow plastic basket containing ALL pp and supplies for yearly school photo mini-album-pages for MIL/FIL.

10. Exercise bike also goes in here! I just pull it out when needed!

11. A view of handmade cards from friends on my b. my wood-mounted stamps. The stamps are on top of an armoire set up on the steps of a 3-tiered plastic spice storage stand which allows me to see them. I have the sentiment stamps all in an oval slatted wooden basket that I bought at Frenchy's for .50 cents LOL!

12. My pride and joy: my ribbon drawer!!! LOL! WOW!

13. I have used the space beneath my table as storage for:

1) Crop in Style XXL (with dust cover made of hemmed fabric that matches room- thanx Mom.)
2) Seagrass baskets: 1 for chipboard letters, 1 for fabric; stacked

3) My "White" sewing machine
4) A pink combo of gabage can/paper recycler bin
5) My lightweight portable heater (just pull to centre of room and switch on.) Toasty warm!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope that tea was good!
Come again soon... I loved having you with me!

A layout sandwiched in between!

Well, it took me a lot longer than I thought, and I did a layout in between (I was having horrible scrappy withdrawal symptoms!) Here is that LO, from May 2007.
Peter took these awesome Mom and son photos. (TY dear!) I LOVE these. My baby's spirit really shines!
Layout based on sketch by Deanne Burton, Dec 1, 2008, on her Just my Sketches blog.

I will post my scraproom pics soon! Off I go to download---> or upload, or whatever it is called!!! Enjoy!
