For Christmas this year, my mother-in-law gave me a book of gift cards. I know, the best gift ever! She made the book by hand. She used her heat gun, embossing powders, stamps, Christmas papers and hand drew many different Christmas images. As I paged through this album of gift cards to my favorite stores, I had an idea. I wanted to fill the album with Christmas pictures and give it back to her. That way she would have Christmas pictures of her family celebrating the holidays.
I packed all my printed photos and supplies and figured this would be a great project to work on at a crop. Once, I settled in with my scrappy friends, they questioned what I was doing. My husband also was worried it might insult his mother. Did I make a mistake? I started to question what I had done.
Thankfully, she loved it. We gave it to her for Valentines Day. I love the end result as well. Now we have some wonderful giftcards, a great album filled with love AND a funny story.

We love the winter olympics! I hope the hubs doesn't mind that I repurposed his valentine for this layout.
The printed paper is from Michaels. The brand is Paper House Productions.
Much thanks to Char for the missing letter "r" to finish this one.

Hello! Thanks for popping by! This is a layout of my daughter. I took a picture of her reading and wanted to scrap it. I also wanted to journal some of her current favourite books.
I started out my trying to find a book pocket on my Cricut cartridges. I didn't have one, so I created one in the Craft Room. Easy Peasy!
Next, I found a library card printable.
Here is the link.
So This is Julie
The books are just various little rectangles cut out from the George Cricut Cartridge.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Here is a quick treat for my kids. I didn't want to spend too much time on it as they will have eaten it faster than you can say, "leprechaun".
The most complicated part was figuring out rainbow coloured candy. These are Original Skittles and Berry Skittles to get the blue.

This winter has been so cold that we all have been watching a lot of Netflix. It seems like I am frequently discussing shows my friends and family are all watching. A big one around here has been Breaking Bad. This card is for a friend who loves the show.

Why have I never put vinyl on cups before? It's so fun! A friend asked if I could personalize cups for her upcoming Mexico trip.
This was a good way to force me to learn how to use vinyl this way. I didn't have any transfer tape so I used a strip of painter's tape to help me with the placement.
