My "Lyric Page" done!

I chose the song from the late Rich Mullins called "I See You". It's always been one of my most favorite songs ever. When I went to do the page it was this song that popped into my head.

The background paper is My Minds Eye, Meadowlark collection. The base page, with the owl on it, was so pretty I couldn't cover up the flowers or leaves so I cut around them and slipped the photos under where I cut.

Here's another book I like!

Cyndi suggested this book to me after she fell in love with it.  I put it on my Christmas list and got it for Christmas.  I haven't really tried anything yet, but I love all the different ideas it suggests.  Take a look:

Stop Crop and Shop Was a Success!

We enjoyed our 12 hour day of scrapbooking.  We got there at 9:45 to unpack and set-up.  We each had a 6' table, which was ideal.  Guess what table number I had? 
They gave us lunch and supper with snacks.  For lunch we had a stuffed potato bar, with chili, cheese, sour cream, green onions, etc.  For supper there was Lasagna and a green salad.  All was very good and filling.  The vendors weren't as I thought they would be.  I thought they would be scrapbooking stores with booths, but what it was was independant consultants of different companies, like Creative Memories, Party Lite, some Purse company, Tastefully Simple, and there was one Reiki healer and one independant candy maker.  So that was a little dissappointing, but it made me be more focused on actually scrapbooking. 

  For this event I made some "page kits".  I bought some really neat page planner envelopes, here's a link:  I really thought that they worked out really well.  I first chose my photos I wanted to scrapbook, then I chose a "sketch card" from my Becky Fleck books, one set has rounded corners, the other set has square corners (which is very nice, now I'll know which deck to put them back in) 
Then I chose the cardstock color for the base of the page, then some decorative paper, close to the size I would need.  I really didn't want alot of scraps, so I cut the papers close to what they would end up being.  Then I chose the embellishments, stamps, etc. that would go well with the page.  Everything for the page fit very nicely in the page planner folder.  Below are some pics of one of my planners filled.   I stuck the layout card in the front pocket, the 12 x 12 papers in the next pocket and then behind that is a half pocket for all the embellishements.

Here's the cover of the  filled page planner.

This is the back of the page planner filled with embelly's.

This is the layout card I chose.
Using these page planners worked out really well for me and I felt that I was very productive.

Stop Crop and Shop TODAY!

First time ever doing this - a grade school in our area is sponsoring a Stop, Crop and Shop today.  12 hours of scrapbooking fun!  From 10am to 10pm, there's a vendor fair, door prizes and raffles, plus lunch and supper with snacks.  I made some page kits for this even and I'm bringing some other things to work on as well.  I have quite a few of them.  This is a new method for me.  I'm hoping that it will be easier for me to get my creativity flowing and get on a roll.  I'll post some pics afterward.

A fun book I got for Christmas

I really like this book because of it's ability to draw nostalgic memories from deep inside of me.  Some of the lists I will probably change to suit me, but other than that I am enjoying thinking about things I haven't thought about before.   Some of the items require some thought and time.  It's a fun book! by Lisa Nola (Author), Nathaniel Russell (Illustrator)

Challeneg 20! Make a title on your page that uses different letters/fonts

Try to use up those leftover letters from your sticker stash, or brads, or die cuts.  Whatever you have mix it up in a title on your page.  I couldn't find an example to show you anywhere.  So be creative and use up those leftover letter stickers.  Have fun!
