Day 2 -- Red Smashbook: 5
Rhonda Miller said... Wow, I just love the layouts. I already have the My Memories Studio, but the Smash book would be fun to play with. TFS.
My Memories Software (combined with 10/10 comments):
Jen said... There were way too many to choose from! They are all so neat, but my favorites would have to be Cowboy Up and the Farm packs. I have never used digital software, it l…

My Memories Suite Review and Giveaway

Hello everyone!  My Memories Suite contacted me to review their digital scrapbook software and to give one away to one of my followers too!  Stay tuned to the end of the post for details on how to win :)

I have never tried digital scrapbooking before trying My Memories Suite. I think it is a lot of fun!  It comes with papers and extras already with the software.  Their website has lots of freebies and sales too.  You can do so much more than just scrapbook pages. 

Here is a page that I made for our puppy Charlie.  I did not use a template, just placed everything on my own.  The software let me save this as a jpeg to my computer so I could just pull it up and add here--I think this is so cool!

I have not tried printing yet, as I do not have a good photo printer.  I think I will have to invest in one -- LOL!  This will be a fun addition to my scrapbooking.  I think I would love to print out pages and still add some dimension.  But, hopefully I can get caught up a bit since I am way behi…

Half the package has extended eyes that bug out.  You can see this in the second picture.

My Pink Stamper Pink-alicious Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!  I just love the 2nd Friday of the month--it's a Pink-alicious Blog Hop night!!  If you have just come from Edna's amazing blog Create with Expression, then you are in the right place.  If not, make sure to head over to My Pink Stamper so you can enjoy all the projects!
Today's challenge is to make a Treat or Goodie Bag with any holiday them and we had to use Yummy-licious or Sweet Goodness.  Mine is more of a box from Art Philosophy (of course!).
This next view shows the side.  It has a cut in the flaps you can't see so those sides just hook together.  Then you finish off the top with ribbon, or twine like I did.  These will go together so quickly and would make great treat boxes for school kids too!

Christmas Tree

Hi everyone!

I was going to post this yesterday, but my daughter had a chorus concert Tuesday night so the post did not get written :)

I've been working on Halloween and Fall cards and I am probably not done making those.  But today, I have a Christmas Card!  Not mine, haven't started those yet -- LOL!  This was for a card swap I am in.

Here are the details:

Today is the last day of round 2 voting over at Practical Scrappers.  I'm working on the next round's card now so hope to see it on there site on Saturday :)  Here's the link …

Too Cute to Spook!

Hello!  Here's the 2nd challenge card I made over the weekend.  I just LOVE this one!  It really is cute :)

Here are the details:
Mini Monsters Spider cut at 2 1/2 inchesElegant Edges border cut at 4 inches by 1 inchMy Pink Stamper Spooky PunsSpiderweb Cuttlebug Folder (borrowed)Black Twine From the TwineryiRockMagenta and Cotton Candy SticklesAction WobbleThis was really easy to put together.  The eyes on the spider are so tiny and I lost one.  My table mate (hi Angie!!) suggeted the iRock eyes which was just perfect--I used two different sizes on that.  Then I made the spider hang but left the twine loose and used an Action Wobble to attach the spider.

If you have a chance, I would appreciate a vote over at the Practical Scrappers Card Making Contest I am in. Card Contest Link You can vote everyday :)  I really to thank everyone who is supporting me through this contest!!  Found on Practical Scrappers:  *if you are unable to cast a vote but wish to you may send a vote via email t…


Hi everyone!  I was at a Swarm this weekend close to home and had a fabulous time!  I worked on a blog hop project for Friday night, 23 swap cards (which are quite done since I needed ribbon), and 2 challenge cards.  Here's one of them. 

And the details:
3 Birds on Paradebird cut at 3 1/2 inchesSpooky cut at 11/2 inchesCuttlebug Candy folder (borrowed at Swarm)My Pink Stamper Spooky PunsDCWV Ghosts and Goblins StackiRockBlack Diamond SticklesThis is for a sketch challenge on the Circle board.  I really feel that I don't do my best work when I follow a sketch, but I like to try.  The bird was a bit bigger than I thought it would be but I just went with it anyway since it was so cute :)

One of the best things about getting together with other crafters is that you can try new things.  But the downside is then you want to buy it!  So now I need several cuttlebug folders and a new cartridge or two that I thought I did not need before :)

Beware of the Spider

Hi everyone!  Today is the day--I made it through to the next round of the Practical Scrappers Card Making Contest!!!!  Thanks so much for all your support :)  The next round is a voting round as well.  So if you could, please vote for me.  You can vote once a day and you just need to go to this link Practical Scrappers: Card Contest Finalists Round Two  and leave a comment with my name again.  I would really appreciate it!

This is the card I made for the next round.  I made 3 different ones but my daughter thought this one was the one to send.  I really liked yesterday's too, so I hope I made the right decision.
