boot cuffs

My daughter-in-law sent me a picture of some boot cuffs while I was out-of-town for work.  I went right to Joanne Fabrics and got what I needed.  Here's the result:

She loved them.

Fold N Flip Card

I just made up that name because I'm not sure what it is called.  I saw one that a member made in a Facebook group I'm in but she used a die for the round part in the middle (the flip part).  I just made up my own pattern and I'm quite impressed with myself!  I'll have to work on matching up the fronts and backs pieces.

Beautiful Utah!

I was able to experience hiking in the mountains of Utah.  My niece lives there and I took a sisters' trip (plus BIL) to visit.  BEAUTIFUL!




And, of course, a scrapping day wouldn't be complete with at least one layout of my beautiful Grandson.  I was giving him a bath and he decided he needed a drink.  He will try to suck the water from the wash clothe.  Yesterday, he was try to slurp it up in the tub.  I think that boy needs to drink more water!

I learned a new technique for a card - lots of work but love the outcome.


Hope you get some crafty time this weekend.  I'll be running a 4-mile race on Sunday but the rest of the weekend I have a date with my scrap-goodies!  Thanks for stopping by, Susan

Getting lots done!

I was traveling for business this past week and took my scrapping stuff with me.  I got several cards and layouts done (I was in the hotel all day and business was at night).  Here's what I completed then and this weekend:

CTMH class

I've joined a group of ladies that do Close To My Heart workshops - cards, layouts, kit clubs.  I'm enjoying learning new techniques, playing with new products, and getting to know new friends.

Here are the creations from the last class:

More projects

My son and his wife and their son finally got moved into their new house and I've had some time to create.  Here are some projects I've been working on:





The above pages and cards are from Close To My Heart workshops.  This is a new group of women I'm scrapping with.  I'm really enjoying learning new things and playing with new product (without having to buy anything).

 This is a thank you card for my niece and nephew.  They hosted us for a long weekend in Utah and we hiked mountain trails.  It was such a fun time and I loved how this card came out.
A beautiful card for my beautiful daughter-in-law's birthday.  This is a new style for me and I like it.

Working on cards to give in sets as gifts.  This came out really pretty.





 My favorite subject to scrapbook - my grandson.  I can't believe he's almost one!
 My least favorite type of card but it's good to have them on hand when needed.

Thanks for stopping by.  Let your creativity make a change in your world.  Susan
