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. 

Check them out, please leave a comment!

        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.

          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!
