Happy New Year! Heading to 2020...

I blinked and it's already been a year! The year 2019 has been great for scrapbooking. I was able to create many layouts catching up on 2018. Going to an all day crop fuels my creativity in scrapbooking. If I prepare and pack well, I can make quick work with my photo memories. I whole-heartily recommend a day cropping with friends. It's good for your soul and your crafts.

I also taught some classes this year. I taught a Cricut Explore card class with Close to my Heart products in June and a children's card-making class.

This fall, I made over 120 holiday cards and a few gifts as well.

Now for my crafty goals for 2020, I would like to design a December Daily type of scrapbooking for my Christmas pictures but I would like it incorporated in a 12X12 album. Has anyone done this before?
I would also like to continue to have fun scrapbooking alone and with friends.

City skyline cards

I love this cut file because it shows all the details of the Winnipeg skyline but that's what makes it difficult to cut. The skyline is actually cut out of vinyl which is much less likely to tear. The hubs wanted this winter design for his school staff.

I hope they like it!

Day Ten of Christmas Projects - A Winnipeg Card

I love making exactly the type of card I want by using the Design Space app to design my cuts.

If you are not from Winnipeg, this is the Golden Boy who stands at the top of our Manitoba Legislature. He turned 100 last week! I figure our city often looks like a snow globe so this is fitting! I used my laminator again to make the shaker card window with some snowflake confetti.

Day Six of Christmas Projects - Amazon card

I feel online shopping has changed how we prepare for the holidays and I wanted another Amazon card this year. I just couldn't think of a sentiment.

Here is last year's Amazon card.

Day Three of Christmas Projects - Laminated Cozy Cabin

Jennifer McGuire posted a tutorial not too long ago using her laminator to add details to cards. I jumped on this idea knowing I had some snowflake confetti.

Day Two of Christmas Projects - Warm Wishes Coffee Card

I actually considered waiting until Starbucks released their holiday cup designs before I made these cards. I love the added touch of the corrugated cup wrap on these cards. The stamped sentiment is from CTMH.

Here are my two design space files for the oval card and coffee cup.



Anyone else craving a peppermint coffee?? I am a latte!

Day One of Christmas Projects - Nordic Gnome Card

I couldn’t find a gnome in Design Space to my liking so I designed one myself. This style of gnome seems very popular this year in Christmas decor and I just think they are adorable!

Here is my file if you are interested.


Thanks for stopping in gnomies!

Canada Day layout

Where did I get inspiration for this layout???? Well, my dog’s bandanna, of course! That’s what so great about creating with Design Space is that you can cut anything you dream up, even the dog’s bandanna.

Happy Canada Day!
