We all have those scrapbook pages that we just love, am I right? Well this is one of my favorite lately. I love to use Stampin' Up! 12x12 smooth card stock for scrapbook pages! The thickness of the card stock is AWESOME, I used "Tasteful Trim" die with Whisper White Card Stock & also with the football texture paper at the bottom. I thought that little design kinda looked like little footballs lined up. Then I matted the pictures with some black card stock and used an old border punch from Stampin' Up! The background is "Night of Navy" Card Stock from Stampin' Up! I cut the football shape with my Circut using some paper that has a football texture on it. And then just a little finishing touch, I used the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to outline the 3/4 of the page. I put the photo strip down with Stampin' Dimensional to give it some added interest. I just <3 this page!!!!

Here is my FIRST video!!! You can watch as I make 2 cards at the same time. I do this when I'm making Card Sets. It seems to be faster to make them this way rather than making one start to finish then making a second one. I'm working on more videos so stay tuned and let me know if there is anything you'd like to see or know more about!!!

After I took this picture I did clean my desk up! But you can see some of the stuff & colors I'm playing with right now. There is a card at the bottom of the picture that I made with a FREE "Sale-a-bration" stamp set. And it also has the New Edgelits Die Adorning Accents that coordinates with the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders in Adorning Accents! I'm playing alot with the In-Colors and Soft Suede & Early Espresso. Plus you see a couple spools of ribbon that you can get for FREE with "Sale-a-bration"!!
here is a 6x6 scrapbook page I made using some NEW items from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog! I plan to stick this in my little Anniversary Album of Me & Keith that my mom gave us. I will put a picture of us on the floral paper. Let me know if you'd like me to mail you a Mini Catalog!! LOTS of cool stuff!

I'm excited to begin Project Life for 2012! I did the traditional way last year, with 4x6's and everything. I did enjoy it, but with our busy schedules it was hard to get the 4x6's printed regularly (which is why I've not posted a completed Project Life 2011 Album!! yet!). I'm gonna send some to Creative Memeories to be printed because they print when the picture was taken on the back of the print! HOW AWESOME IS THAT!! This year I decided I'd try the digital version. That way I can print 12x12 as I go or I can print a press book at the end of year. Not sure which way I'm gonna go. I kinda like the idea of printing the 12x12's and using 12x12 page protectors & putting them in the PL binder, that way I can get some of the other page protectors to add little bits of our 2012 in the book. SO we will see what happens! But I will be posting the individual pictures or the 2 completed 12x12 pages for that week. Depends on how busy I get! LOL!
