Hangin Out with friends

I made this layout for my daughter's scrapbook that is WAAAAY behind. I hope you enjoy it! I had a lot of fun making it! This is from when she was in first grade. She is going into 3rd grade now! My goodness, how time flies! My daughter is the one with the yellow t-shirt under the black and white vest.

I used SU ribbon, MS butterfly stamps with StazOn ink, a making memories premade tag that has the saying "Hangin out with friends," and DCWV papers. I am unsure of the brand of pearls for embellies.

Please feel free to leave ANY comments! Thank you!

Hello to all! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I for one am stranded home for a while. My two youngest have the chicken pox. They had the vaccine, but can still get the pox. So we are home... my husband is over the road, so I am technically "stuck" here. I do have a few friends I can call if I need them to watch the kids while I run to get anything from the grocery store...

Challenges starting this week!

I took a poll a while back of what everyone thought of my posting challenges to get some creative juices flowing. Here is the plan:

I will post the sketch of the challenge, and another picture of my take on the challenge. Then you post links to your pictures of your take on the challenge. I will choose a winner of the challenge week by week. Once things pick up on here a bit, then I will start having goodies that people can win too!

I will be rotating a card challenge and layout challenge each week. That way we can get our card makers and scrapbookers all in on the fun! If you have any ideas to add- please let me know! I am open to ANY suggestions!!!

Stay tuned for TOMORROW! The first challenge will be posted then! I can't wait to see everyones creations!

cards for some swaps

Hello to my fellow followers! I hope you all are having a great start to the week!

Here are some cards I made using my GYPSY!!! The first time I cut with it! I LOVE IT! So easy to use! I used Gypsy Wanderings on these cards. I also used my fiskars threading water punch, stickles, Colorbok Adhesive, Chipboard Tags, Stampin' Up! Stamp, some of the papers were DCWV, Cosmo Cricket, K & Co. and a few others I am unsure of the name brand. I used LOTS of scraps up with these cards! I am on a spending freeze, so I plan to use as much of what I have available, as I can! I hope to do well with what scraps I do have. Please tell me what you think!

My newly decorated apron

Hello to my followers! Sorry it's been a while! I tried my heart out to post last night, but blogger was down. So, without further ado, here is my fun apron!

I got the apron at Hobby Lobby. The applique was bought at JoAnn's. I really like how it turned out! Tell me what you think!

Anyone else have this problem?

I have a Fiskars seal of approval punch- the 2 inch scallop circle, and had it for roughly two weeks... I emailed the corperation with this:

Hello to whom it may concern;

My name is Jennifer Young. I do a lot of crafting with your products, and just recently purchased a 2 inch seal of approval punch. I have had it for two weeks, and love it. My only problem is that now one of the handles is cracking, so even on the thinnest paper, it is very hard to punch. If I keep punching it, it will eventually crack all the way through. To pay $23.00 for something like that, I would expect it to last longer than 2 weeks. I no longer have the reciept from the store, and if I did, I opened it and used it, so they will not take it back. Please tell me there is something you can do on your end. I really would appreciate a prompt response. To see that I am an avid crafter, please visit my blog...

Thank you for your time.


Jennifer Young
We shall see what happens... Anyone else have this problem???

Hello to my fellow followers! I have some great news! I have decided to make money with something I love doing, and that is crafting! So, what better than becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator??? I have a blog that is strictly Stampin' Up! I hope you will be able to follow me in both cases! Here is my other blog for STRICTLY STAMPIN' UP!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
