Fun Christmas notebook

So I bought this cute notebook at the dollar store and thought it would make a good Santa Shopping list/whats bought book.  Our CTMH Believe papers matched the bright Christmas colors, so I quickly punched out the tabs and glued them on (each family member now has there own section). Then added so fun, bright ribbons to the ring binders.  AND POOF, DONE!

Thanksgiving scrapbooking ideas

Okay people, its coming....the holidays are coming.....Do you know that Thanksgiving is ONE MONTH before Christmas Eve!?!?!  CRAZINESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A great thing to scrapbook about Thanksgiving would be a list of what each person at your dinner party is Thankful for!  You can have everyone write them down on small pieces of cardstock or on leaf shaped cardstock then just past them into your book.  You can also just have people speak their ideas out loud and then have someone jotting down what they say...These ideas will look great with your gathering photos surrounding your loved ones thoughts and prayers.

What will YOU be doing?  Comment below!

WHATCHA working on! Comment here

Sorry Everyone, I've been offline doing some pre-holiday craziness this week.  Me and my little ones have this week off for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I plan on getting a head start on some of my Christmas present making (a real head start would have been if I would have started in February when I should have of lol).  I am trying to have a guilt free holiday though this year, so enough of that. If you are on my Gift giving list STOP reading now:
  • I am working on assembling my Studio J calendars that I'm giving (only 6 layouts to needed, and a blank CTMH 12x12 calendar and BAM done....did this 5 times!) and a wreath for a friend first.
  • WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Please leave comments here and all share holiday gift ideas here (specially since I have 17 more gifts to make lol)

Family stamp addicts

I had to share these pictures of my daughters who are as stamp addicted as their Momma.    I love how unlike most kids about to stamp Sara Beth holds her stamp and says "tap, tap, tap" as she taps the image to the ink pad lol.  No rocking images for her!

Sara Beth loves Papercrafting
Kennedy says  "I love Cwafting"



"right here"
 
This is the secret reveal part lol

Happy Birthday to the USMC!

I wanted to wish a Happy Birthday to the USMC! and to my favorite Marine and Amtracker, GySgt Gordon Plotzke III!

In this Studio J layout I made showing 2010's USMC Birthday Celebration take notice of the papers I used.  This is the BOO paper pack and I easily changed the colors of the papers to coordinate with Gordon's uniform.  If you take a closer look you'll see custom "paper" filled with my own personal words.  To do this technique is easy.  I placed multiple journalling boxes onto the square each with a different word in each.  To recreate the words in the other boxes, I just held the shift key while selecting all the words and then copied/pasted twice, lining them up over their new home:)
