I made this layout for Scrapbook Daisies using the new "On the Sunny Side" collection from My Minds Eye.
Don't you just love the cute bicycle print paper with the sweet little banners!
We are in full Summer mode for our first week of no school, and I must say I am loving the getting up late as much as I am staying up late! We have a lot of things planned for these next 2 months, and I am so ready to relax and enjoy it all!
I have some cards to share today that were all made with the June add-on kit from the Paper Bakery. You all know I am a scrapbooker at heart, but once in awhile a card is fun too!
I'm working at my local scrapbook store for a few days this week while the owners are on vacation and today is the crop day/night. It's always fun to see old friends and customers, some that I've known for 10 years from the days when I worked at another scrapbook store that has since closed. It's amazing how you can make a dear friend, and it all started with a piece of scrapbook paper.
To make the cute flower, I used the Pink Paislee scalloped ribbon from the kit that I misted with a turquoise blue color, then I just kind of twisted it in a circle and glued it down. I had a piece of twine sitting on my table that was left over from another project, so I just layered it on before adding the scrap of yellow fabric to the center Quick and easy, and I love the look!
These super cute wood people are from last months kit, but they worked perfectly with this page of my Mom and I, so I added them along with the operators checklist (included in the June kit!) to complete my Dumbo layout.
Today I have two projects on the Imaginisce blog as part of their month long Tool Extravaganza. Both projects are made with one of my most favorite of the Imaginisce tools, the
i-top punches. Although the punches were really made to punch paper to use with the i-top brads, I like using them just as they are.
For this sweet little card. I used the smallest i-top punch, folded each shape in half and strung on twine to make a mini banner.
I also made this fun banner to welcome Summer using the extra large punch. School isn't out for us for another week, but I already have this hanging as we are counting down the days!
Be sure to stop by the Imaginisce blog every day this month for some great ideas, and enter to win an Imaginisce Tool Package!!
As always, thanks for stopping by my little place on the world wide web!
Today I've got a fun mini album/journal I made with the May Project Kit and the add on kit from the Paper Bakery. The project kit comes with a really fun blank book that I decided to turn into our Summer Journal. Here is the front cover, with a bit of white paint to really make the cute chevron pattern stand out...

I've split the journal into 3 separate sections, one for each month of our Summer. Here's June
This is for July
and this is for the month of August
Now for the fun part! With the pages in between, I've added a few things here and there to decorate some of the pages so all I have to do is add some journaling and a photo or two to each page as our Summer days come and go. Here is some of those fun additions. First up my favorite page with a confetti pocket!
I can't wait to start using our Summer journal! Oh, and yes it comes with rings to put it all together, but I'm waiting until I have all the pages filled to add those. Also here's a helpful hint...if you decide to do the 3 months like I did, remember you can use an upside down "n" for the letter "u" since you will need quite a few "u's" to spell out June, July & August ;)
When you take over four-thousand photos on vacation (4,395 to be exact) sometimes it takes awhile to get them scrapped. That would be why I am still working on photos from our 2010 trip to Yellowstone.
I used the soon to be released June add on kit from The Paper Bakery for this one. I love the mix of papers that go perfectly with this pic of my in-laws standing in front of Old Faithful. That was such an amazing vacation with them. Today is round 2 of chemo for my mom-in-law. What I wouldn't give to be standing with them at Old Faithful instead of her getting another chemo treatment. There's no other way to put it, cancer sucks.
I know someday we will all be back there again for another amazing vacation. xo Mary Ann
