So... awhile back I saw a card much like the above card (at least I think it was), it was before I got the stamp set, so when I pulled it out to use I kind of CASEd the other card. Now for the problem... I can't find the site to give credit to the person I got the idea from, leave a message if you know the site, til then enjoy!

More info on November 20x20 Wednesday

Because I know that some of the cards are duplicates of themselves, I did design another that I will post later. Because this is starting a little later in the month and with Christmas Eve on a Wednesday some of the cards will be used both months. I will replace designs that get used up with a new one. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving I will still have my stamping room open.

Have a great day and I will post pictures later.

12" x 12" Scrapbook Page II

This one I have decided needs another layer of matting behind the pictures. I am going for fast because I am years behind in scrap-booking. I do my album (called the family one) and a set for each child. I have 5 children and one grandchild... I am so behind. So my layouts and embellishments have to be fast and simple. Though I have decided that I need to do some with a little more, so that I can feel like I created. Hope you all are having a great day!

Double Page Layout

So my paper isn't Stampin' up, I've been scrap-booking for about 18 years (I'm 5 years behind on my albums, 4-10 years behind on by children's albums) When I started I lived in California and there wasn't such a thing as a scrapbook store there, so every time I visited Utah I would stock up at Pebbles or KMA so now I am combining years old paper from who knows where to the paper I now buy from Stampin' up. I mirrored the paper strips on each page then added the matted pictures. I have about 25- 12" x 12", 12- 8 1/2" 11", 1- 6" x 6" Books done so far. If my husband knew how many thousands of dollars are invested in those books...
