A Black & Ivory scrapbook page!

Here is a neat black & ivory scrapbook page.  The inspiration for this page came from my stampin' sister Lyssa.  I changed it by adding my own touch with the flower stamp & coordinating punch & made it into a 2 page spread.
And you can never go wrong when you use the set- 'Gorgeous Grunge' can you!!  When I was creating this page I thought of my mom.  She attended my scrapbooking class on Saturday & I was right!  This was one of her favorite layouts.  

I think that any creation that is black & ivory is just usually stunning!  

Most of the products used on these pages are all current:

stamp sets:  'Big News', 'Flower Shop' & Gorgeous Grunge'

card stock:  Very Vanilla & Basic Black
designer paper:  Typeset Specialty 12x12 DSP
ink:  Black Memento pad
other: Pansy Punch, Basic Pearls
retired:  clip & Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding ribbon
Yesterday Brayden & I worked on the farm all morning with Deke.  We came in for a late lunch.  The guys went back out & I changed hats & worked on farm bookwork the rest of the afternoon/evening.

Today Deke is headed to the office for the morning & back home to work on the farm all afternoon.  I'll be spending my day with all 4 of my boys.  Tonight we're all going racing to cheer Nathan on!  I hope he has good luck!  The boys are excited about going to the races.  It will be a late night.  Tonight if the first part of a two night show called the "Stock Car Shootout" in Osky.  They have qualifying heats tonight & then the last chance races & the big show (the main) will be tomorrow night.  There are usually between 125-140 Stock Cars at this annual race.

I hope you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!
Happy Stamping!

This weeks "WEEKLY DEALS"- June 30th through July 6, 2015! WHILE SUPPLIES LAST ONLY from now on!


Here is another scrapbook page that I created for my annual scrapbooking event.  I thought this was the perfect layout for many different occasions you might want to scrap.  I love the little tubs of popcorn.  Isn't it cute!!
I thought the words "enjoy" at the top on a tag was just very appropriate for this layout.  

My upline Shari shared little popcorn tubs like this with the film strip on a scrapbook page that she had made & I just thought it was adorable!  So this is my version.  And I am a HUGE popcorn lover too.  

**There are both some current & retired products used here on these pages.  

I enjoyed my day with my boys yesterday!!  They are just so sweet!  We played outside alot.  They should have been tired last night.  

Today I'm a farmer!  I'm headed out early this morning to help Deke with marking, sorting & loading hogs.  I hope we get alot done before it gets too hot out.  

I hope you have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!!  
Happy Stamping!

Woo Hoo!! Today is Masen's baby shower!!

Yesterday was a super crazy day!  I enjoyed my day with everyone that came to create scrapbook pages with me!  When they left I started creating things for Masen's baby shower all night.  His shower is today.  I still have a few more projects to get finished & lots of food yet to make!!!

Here is the diaper cake that I made last night!  Didn't it turn out super cute!!  I had no clue what I was doing when I started....and I'm sure pleased with it.

I'll share more photos in the coming days of other projects that I made for Masen's baby shower & some more scrapbook pages too!

I hope you have a SUPER Sunday!!

Just for you......

Here is another clean & simple card I made with the new Pretty Petals Designer Paper Stack.  Check out the little butterfly in the lower corner.  Isn't this a cute card!
This is a fun layout that I've used a few time lately with different products.  It is a prefect layout to use with a banner going through the middle.  And how quick it is to do when you can just use designer paper to add your images & a 2 1/2" circle punch to punch our your words.

card stock: Watermelon Wonder, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
designer paper: Pretty Petals Designer Paper Stack

Gotta is my farmer day, so I'll be working on the farm helping Deke.  We sell a load of hogs this morning.  The boys will be here later. 

Tonight I'll be burning the midnight oil again stamping!!  I have lots to create & get cut this week.

I hope you have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
Happy Stamping!

Here is Trey's Birthday card!

Here is the card that I made for Trey & gave to him at his party yesterday.  The birthday theme was Dr. Suess- 'Thing Three' since he is the third child.  The colors I used to make his card are the same colors we used to make his birthday invite.  
I used lots of new things from the new catalog here & think it turned out pretty cute!
I also made it a 'Z fold' I love this fun fold!

stamp set:   'Build A Birthday'
card stock:  Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Whisper White
designer paper:  Brights Designer Series Paper Stack
ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Daffodil Delight
other:  Real Red 1/4"Cotton Ribbon, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Banner Triple Punch

Yesterday I was up bright & early & went to Manda's to help her get ready for Trey's party!  It was a warm day, but all turned out perfect!!!  He loved his cake!!  It was precious!
All of our hard work in getting everything ready paid off!  The food was all yummy, the weather was good & it was a nice celebration with our families for both Trey's birthday & Father's Day too! Plus yesterday was also my Aunt Virginia's birthday too- so we sang "Happy Birthday" to her & sent her home with several pieces of chocolate cake (her favorite). 

I hope you have a MARVELOUS Monday!!
Happy Stamping!
