Scrappy Stuff & A Giveaway!!

Lots to share today!  I made two more LO's with my Counterfeit Challenge kit.  It was so much fun working with these Valentine themed papers and I have to say that I used up some "stuff" that has been hanging around for quite some time.  I am really down to next to nothing for Valentine supplies which means that next year I will buy some new stuff. Who knows, maybe I'll find some of this year's goodies in the sale bin!  Even better. ;

First up.... the lovely "Lady"!  Just looking so demure sporting her red bandana!  hee hee  It was fun to use some rub ons here and another one of those huge PP alphas!  Yay!!  One more gone!!!  ;)


I used this week's sketch from The Scrappiest.  Here it is.


So, I finally scrapped these hilarious pictures of me and Thomas meeting for the first time.  They still make me smile!  I thought the love themed papers were perfect.  I used two different shaped sheets here and cut off the shaped part using only the center.  Great way to use up some of those hard to use sheets.  My tiny scraps from last year's PP line came in handy for the perfect pop of colour.


Here is the sketch I used from Liz Qualman.


Susan and I had a great day yesterday scrapping the anniversary album.  We each got one LO done plus a trip to Michael's and lunch out with Rob!  Lucky guy taking the White sisters to lunch. ;)  We spared him the Michael's visit. ;)

I am still struggling with the fancy products we are using in the album.  Pearls and glitter are just not my thing.  I long to sew on a button, use a ticket, some hemp and some kraft paper!  Not so great for an anniversary theme.  But.... the pages will become more casual soon as we are almost done the wedding section!  Yay!!! Here are a few peeks of some fancy stuff. :)



Now onto my giveaway!!!  Last week I was whining how I had bought extra sheets of the BG line "Indian Summer".  What better way to use them up..... give them away!!!  :)


So I have put together a fall themed kit.  Here it is.


Filled with cardstock, paper, ribbon, tags. buttons, brads, chipboard, floss and more!  All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post.  Sorry that due to shipping costs, this is only open to Canada and the U.S.A.   I'll randomly pick a winner on Monday night and announce it.  Good luck to all!

Happy Scrapping!!  Jen :)

  4. Your layouts are AMAZING!! I really like your interpretations of the sketches. I've never really used sketches before, but your take on them is inspiring. I just might have to give them another look-see. Now I need to get going on using some of my counterfeit kit. Maybe those sketches would help me speed things up a bit : ) I swear I'm the slowest scrapper in the WORLD!!!

  17. Well, one thing about this minus 20 weather - keeps you close to your studio. Love the layouts and am so excited for the time when we can see the anniversary album. I think the time you get to spend with Susan are going to be as memorable as the book itself. I love hanging out with my sister - even if she is not scrappy at all - oh well....you never know!! Likin' the new background of your blog. Have a cozy weekend. t

  20. Two wonderful layouts! I just love the one of your little lady! Love the mix of papers on the layout and the usage of the letter U. So creative!! The little peaks of the album you and your sister have been working on look so lovely. Thanks for the chance to win your give away! Love the color palette!

  21. Holy smokes! You've been busy, lady! These layouts are awesome. I am so impressed with the mileage you're getting out of your counterfeit kits! I think I may have to give this a try. It would be a fun way to go to a crop with a couple of kits and some photos! (It sure would make packing a breeze!). Those photos of you and Thomas are priceless - he looks so pouty in the first one! What a cutie. :) Looks like Lady is doing really well, too. I'm so glad. Maggie is driving me to drink with her shedding over here, and I'm thinking I need to make arrangements to have her shaved or something! Of course, though, I still love my little (huge) rescue dog. :)
