Distressing paper edges tutorial

Hey guys, just wanted to share that I posted a quick video on how I distress my edges, and compared a couple different methods, including one using the Zutter Distress-It-All (in case you were considering buying it). Check out my video HERE :)

BoBunny 'n Me :)

Just having some fun with BoBunny pp! Made a couple LO's, one of each kid. This first LO is using Ad Lib:

The second LO is again the space pp I had won, and it's so perfect for a little boy:

Mmmmm....Ice Cream Cake from Friendly's!!

Ok, DS LOVED the ice cream cake!! He's usually not that into cake or ice cream, but this stuff was really good....when it melted, he tried drinking it too and even licked his plate clean. It was too funny...he got a sugar rush and went a little crazy and we all had a blast for his birthday.

Also, check out my YouTube Video - I did a haul from Your Scrapbook Stash!

It's a little Morgan!!

Happy Monday!

When Morgan was born, the nurses wrote "It's A Little Morgan!" on the dry erase info board...I thought it was so cute that I had to take a pic of it. And now I've finally scrapped it, using the brand new and oh so pink and pretty and soft MLS "Heartfelt" pp.

Also, I have a new video up on my YouTube's a fun one! I do a little tour of my scrap room, so if you'd like to see where I scrap, make sure to check out my video HERE.

Tim Holtz Configurations Printer's Tray

I was soooooooo excited to find the Tim Holtz Configurations Printer's Tray at Michael's! Uusually M's doesn't have anything "cool" or "fun" and I don't have an LSS, so it was super exciting to find the tray there. Also good timing since I have been trying to figure out what I could make for DH to take to work to display some pics - he recently got a new job and he wanted something new. Also good timing since I managed to complete it right on Father's Day! Yep...that made for a great gift. I actually had DH come to my scrap room and I pulled out a few paper liens that I could have used, and he was the one that picked out the Tim Holtz Lost and Found Paper is more manly, I guess LOL It worked out well since I love that pp too...and it has the smaller printed pp at the end of the stash that worked well for this project. Ok, I am not going to explain everything I did here. If you want to know more about the techniques, check out my YouTube channel - I have two videos up about this tray. I did use several gorgeous Scrapmatts pieces - the birdcage and bird, the hanging sign, and the tree and bird. So here goes:

And before you go, I have a little card to share - this one was for my dad for Father's Day. The pp is by Harmonie, as is that cute owl brad, and the tree and the chipboard house (that I covered in Harmonie pp) are both Scrapmatts.
