1/31/2010 Pocket pages

DiY Network Aired a Program on 10/06/09 on folded pages with guest host Anna Griffin. I set the DVR and saved it and thought "one day I would love to try that page." Well my one day came on Saturday. I loved everything about her page EXCEPT her page was only one page front to back and I scrapbook two pages side to side. So I needed to do the page twice and needed to have twice the paper. Each page uses 5 papers. However you only see the front so we figured out which papers were visable on each side and that ment we needed 7 papers and 3 extra's that could be anything because they were not visible at all on the completed pages. ( I hope that makes sence - The back of page one looks like pg2 and the back of pg2 looks like pg1 ) I couldn't find the spacific directions but comment on the page if I get enough interest I will get instructions made and post them soon.

I used: Cosmo Cricut Girl Friday Paper Line. All the days of the week with the borders and element sheet. I could not find it at my local shop so I bought it direct from Cosmo Cricket.

Pocket Pages - How cute are these?

Page 1

Page 2

Embellish - I like it all! But rarely use stickers.

Add some small pullout cards for extra photos or just tuck extra pictures in the pockets. You can also stick movie tickets, friendship bracelets, or any other special little moment in the pockets to save. You could do this with cute kitchen papers and tuck recipes in the pockets ~ there is so many great ideas for this page!

Add flowers, Buttons (glue on easy with glue dots), ribbons, brads, tags and more for that added extra touch.

When your all done ~ One perfectly adorable page!

Jan.30,2010 What a GREAT weekend!

For those of you who don't know this was the weekend of my 40th Birthday. I choose to celebrate on the 28th with a family dinner and on the 29th and 30th I wanted to have a scrapbook crop for 2 days with all my gals. I have to this was such a great way to celebrate! PERFECT!!!! We started on Friday night at 6pm and scrapbooked until about 11:30. Today we started back up at 10am and scrapped until about 9pm. I am not the fastest scrapper. I really take my time and think about every button, ribbon and brad.
I definitely did less than anyone.... but I love everything I did. I Made a super cute
12x12 magnetic board, a 2 page 12x12 layout. Plus one more 2 page 12x12 layout. This was the layout I will NEVER do again! DIY network and BYU TV both have LATE NIGHT scrapbook shows. ( We have Comcast cable.) I set my DVR to record them and watch them later. There was this one episode on the Scrapbook show that was on this 12x12 folded scrapbook page. It looked so simple on the show so Nadia ( a great eager young scrapper, always up for anything. ) and I decided lets do it! Well we had to rewind and play and do math and rewind and play and score the pages so many times we swore this would NEVER be a page we would do again! :-) But I have to say I LOVE the finished look. I am all cropped out so you will have to wait till tomorrow to see the finished product but I promise it will be worth the wait! ( With instructions if I can find them!) Until then Enjoy these two great layouts Nadia and I did together. She has 2 little boys so of course these suit them perfectly!

Thanks girls for a fantastic Birthday ~ love ya!!! Nancy

I will share that tomorrow. I will also share with you girls some of the cute kits for the crop tomorrow.

Monday Jan.25,2010 New Kaiser Craft

Another trip to the doctor today because ... I am still coughing! I don't feel sick, I am
just coughing and coughing and coughing! YUK!!! Today I coughed so much my chest hurts tonight...sore. I am going to the doctor tomorrow and I am camping out till I get what ever the magic pill is. I have had a couple of the worst medications too! I really think maybe the doctor thinks I am lying so he gives me the grossest stuff he has. AWEFUL!!! Anyway I am posting Mondays post early just in case I get to busy or tired tomorrow. I love these 2 NEW Kaiser Craft lines I hope you do to!More New lines to find at convention.

Jan.24,2010 Football Sunday

I am not a big football fan or watcher...unless it is the big game. Well this has been
a good year for our guys and today is another BIG game! My Brother and Dad have been BIG New Orleans Saints fans and today is a big game! If the Saints win today they are going to the Super Bowl for the first time - EVER! I wish them luck! It would make for a great year since our college team ... Alabama won the National Champs. GO SAINTS GO!
With Football on my mind I thought I would share this layout... Enjoy :)

Today my sister came over with her 3 kids and together we have 5 kids.(2 girls and 3 boys)One would think that 2 of anything would better than 3, but if you think that you haven't been around our girls. The 3 boys go downstairs and rarely surface ... mostly when they are hungry. The girls on the other hand need constant entertainment, listen to every word said and overall high maintenance chicks! (I hate to say this being a girl myself:) My poor brother he has 3 girls...I couldn't imagine! Here is a great layout of the 3 boys. They are so spread out in ages... 3,9 and 17 and just the best of buddies! Gotta love 'em :)

1/22/10 Today was a bad day!

I really love my job... working with special education children is so rewarding. Today was
the first time in a LONG time I really felt like quiting! It is not because of the kids but the people you work with! I really like Kristy ( thank god for her ) but the others really make the day hard to get through. SO to them and you know who you are I think this layout sums up how I feel today! :)
( Sorry is that really terrible of me? It really is a cute layout! )
