24.03.2018...Scrapbook Week....You are Awesome....12x12 Double Layout

Thought we could switch gears from the 8.5 x 11 layouts and move on to a 12 x 12 double page layout.  I created this layout from scraps....I stamped the flowers and the title and the journal boxes and the rest came out of my scrap bin.  

You might recognize the printed pieces on the end from my mini album I shared with you a couple of week ago.  

Here are close-ups of the individual pages:

23.03.2018...Scrapbook Week....Snuggle.....8.5 x 11....Weekend Memory...8.5 x 11

This layout features my baby girl Dixie all snuggled in a blanket sooking with her Mom.  Check out how I used stamps for the title and went around the corner...cool huh! 

And this layout features my handsome son Jesse and my handsome grandson Richard. They were out to the trailer for a visit and I snapped this pic.

20.03.2018...Scrapbook Week.....Message in a Bottle ......8.5 x 11....





So I have had this on my "crafting bucket list' for a while now....I wanted to start an 8 1/2" x 11" scrapbook album....many times I have just one or two photos....and since I already have all the Stampin Up card stock colors, the smaller size might work better for me....I gave it a go this weekend... The stamp set I used is Message in a Bottle. I was pleased with the outcome and will continue this type of scrapbooking....along with my 12 x 12 of course.

A visitor at card class....


 We had a special visitor at card class in March.....FLAT STANLEY!   

Flat Stanley belongs to my great-nephew (God that makes me sound ancient) in Alberta. 

Flat Stanley was sent to Winnipeg via Canada Post so that he could experience life in Winnipeg. 

He needs to go to lots of places to learn about things like the Forks, the Manitoba Museum, the Legislative Buildings, Museum for Human Rights, the Art Gallery, Fort Whyte Alive, St. Boniface Cathedral etc etc and then go back to Alberta to teach the kids what Winnipeg is all about......

but the most exciting stop was card class!  He learned lots of great card making techniques in class and had fun laughing with the girls. 

Doesn't he look like the hit of the party! Ha!
