Tim Holtz Embossing Folder and Washi Tape

This card almost makes me think of a fortune cookie. I water colored the heart with Tim Holtz distress ink. I covered a sheet of cardstock with washi tape and then punched out the circles. After I embossed the card base I sewed the washi circles on and then popped up the heart on top.

Hope you Christmas season is coming along beautifully.

New Crop Handmade Snowflake Patterns

Today marks another Family Home Evening spent making paper snowflakes to add to our growing collection. It now takes me about a half hour or more to hang them all. Jonah wanted to copy Aaron's design so badly. I love when they want to be like each other. Tessa loved the idea of a butterfly and went to work making that happen. Unfortunately, her first attempt didn't turn out so hot. One good thing about this year is that I didn't have to do all the initial folding of the paper. Jakob and Tessa are getting pretty good at it. Daddy is at training for work so we hope to have him add his when he gets home. He always makes the coolest designs. Like his FIRE SNOWFLAKE.

To see last years crop
and to see them hanging up
have a wonderfully crafty week!

Baby Boy Scrapbook Layout

Seriously, OH MY GOSH! It has probably been half a year since I scrapped a page. I just adore this picture of my "baby boy" and myself from our family vacation this summer. He's twelve and he towers over me at 6ft tall now. He thinks it's pretty funny. I actually used Scrapbook Steals Midweek Mojo Lolite #2 sketch for this layout. I used some gorgeous papers that my friend Melissa sent me, cuz she's just super nice like that. No matter how big he gets, or how big a stinker he is,
he'll always be my baby boy.

I need to learn how to journal straight when I hand journal but I know he won't mind .

I have used DCWV, October Afternoon and WRMK papers here. The letters are Thickers.

You TOO, don't you forget to be awesome every day!
I love paper :)!!!
