Scraptastic Dec Layouts 2 & 3

Hey y'all,

It feels like it's been forever since I posted.  But I did go a little MIA finishing up my handful of Christmas cards and envelopes.  It all didn't look as uniformed as I planned, but I ran out of time... :) Oh well

Anywho, even though it's only or already the 20th, depending on how ready you are for Christmas, I'm kind of over it.  Does that make me a bad person?? I feel like Christmas has been surrounding me for months now, and it's been great but I'm done.  hahaha, I don't know, don't hate me, I'm not a total Scrooge.  So I've created a couple of layouts using my Scraptastic Heartbeats kit for this month.

        Scraptastic December - Heartbeats -Layout #1!! #WHATWHAT

        Hey ya'll,

        So it feels like it's been F-O-R-E-V-E-R and a DAY since I've done a scrapbook layout.  I was kind of on a Christmas card kick, and even through that my creativity has been a really slow drip lately.  I'm not sure if I'm putting to much pressure on myself or what.  But ugh, it has been torturous lately, I get a fuzzy idea in my head, and I sit at my desk, and I just can't get it from my head to the paper, it like's a dream that you can't quite remember when you wake up, and the harder you try the more illusive it is.

        Anywho, I had these adorable photos of my son from like 3 years ago, and I'm not really into doing Halloween or themed layouts altogether, so I decided to just do what I like. Check it out!  The ingredients are listed below.

          Last couple of Christmas cards!!

          More Christmas Cards!!




          Hey y'all

          So, I have had a crafting blockage for the past few days, but I had a little of a break through this evening (YAY!).  It's so funny or weird whichever, some times when I want to make a card and I think I feel creative, I sit down at my desk and it's... NOTHIN' :)   I mean I can't even pick papers that seem to coordinate.
          And other days I can crank out like 3 or 4 cards in a flash.  I don't know maybe someone can clue me in, I usually don't have a problem, planning and setting a goal, my family makes fun of how many lists I create, but when it comes to crafting I cannot seem to control the flow, IDK

          So, check out what I created tonight, and let me know what you think ;)

          Christmas Cards!!!

          Hey y'all,

          Hope all are well, and getting ready for the holiday season, I just wanted to share some Christmas cards I made.  I don't traditionally make and send out Christmas cards, because it just too much pressure.  And I've learned about myself the more pressured I am, the less creative I am...(#weird :)

          Anywho, I have received my Simon Says Stamp card kit, and November & December were for Christmas related, and then (because I have a shopping problem and SSS knows this I'm sure, they put on sale I bought) a 3rd Christmas themed card kit, it wasn't part of the monthly, but fabulous all the same!

          So, I've put all three kits together and just made cards as I feel it, I'll be posting more over the next few days.  This isn't like a challenge or anything, just felt the creativity and let it flow as best as I can.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think :)


          The first two are shaker cards!

          Scraptastic Layout #6

          Hello again,

          So, I apparently I miscalculated my paper usage in this month's kit, because I thought I was done...but I was able to get this layout done with November's kit, and I think I can get out one more. (YAY!!)

          That's what I love so much about these Scraptastic kits.  Not only do you get the latest and greatest of product, but you get enough that you can really pump out art over and over again!

          Any who, here's a layout of some of my fantastic friends, these ladies are so sweet and wonderful!  I plan to do a follow-up layout to this one, because these shots were taken about 5 years ago, and all of our lives have grown and changed so much in that amount of time, even though it seems like just a blink ago.  So, I'd love to know what you think, and please keep checking back for more!

          Scraptastic Nov - LO#5

          Hey there y'all,

          I'm just about done with my Scraptastic November "Shake It Off" kit.  I think I'll be able to get one more layout done, it's been so great, I can't wait for Decembers.

          This one is a bit of a love/not-so-love.  I love all the embellishments and papers and the photo couldn't be cuter, but I'm not so loving how it turned out. I don't get to do too many pages that are girly, so it's a work in progress.  Any who, check it out, and I'd love to hear what you think.

          Scraptastic Nov Layout#4

          Hey there folks,

          So I thought I was done for the night, and then while putting my layouts in their various albums I came across this picture of my youngest son from about two years ago.  And Oh, how I LOVE this shot.  My husband took it randomly, it was Easter 2012, and there had to be 20 kids playing in the yard, my baby was the youngest and could not quite keep up. Any who, I don't what or who he's staring at, but this is like the cutest pose, he looks so deep in thought and concentrated for a mere two years old.  Hope you enjoy.  I have used the Scraptastic November "Shake It Off" kit, and the specifics are below.

          Still scrapping' - Scraptastic Oct Kit & Stash Dive

          Hey all,

          So I've been blogging MIA because I staged my own tiny revolt to blogger. I am a little bit of an organizational freak, and that goes along with my posts, and I wanted to organize my posts, by what the feature item was, card, layout, FSJ etc.  However, to my everlasting dismay, I discovered that this Blogger site is not designed that way, you get one page that your uploads and post go to when continuously updating and blogging.  And all the other pages are most for links and static information :(

          So, man I say so a lot, but anyway, so I'm scrapping and blogging because I love to share, but the enthusiasm with this site has severely waned.

          So anyway, check out my last couple of layouts, and tell me what you think, or thumbs it up or leave a comment, both a welcomed and greatly appreciated.





          Supplies Used:


          • Teresa Collins Nine & Co Stickers
          • Studio Calico Banana Stand
          • Scraptastic Exclusive Flair Badges designed by Kaitlin Sheaffer
          • Scraptastic Exclusive Cut Aparts designed by Kaitlin Sheaffer
          • Shimelle Earhart
          • Fancy Pants True Friend Label Stickers
          • Teresa Collins Flowers
          • American Crafts Ash
          • Chickaniddy Scrumptious Die Cuts
          • American Crafts Cabbage
          • Crate Paper Journal
          • Teresa Collins Nine & Co Rub-ons

          So, I don't have a supply list for this LO, because most stiff is just from my stash,  but I will make it a point to start keeping better track of what I can.


          If anyone can recommend perhaps another blogger site that can possibly meet my needs I'd llloooovvvveee that also...

          XOXOXOXO
