Sugar N Spice and Everything Nice

This week I used again a couple of carts. I used the new Cricut Lite Sugar and Spice cartridge along with Everyday Paper dolls and Hello Kitty Font.
I must put a plug in for the gypsy because it made cutting out the different colors a DREAM! I used the hide show feature to hide the pieces I wanted to cut a different color. For example the stork is carrying a bundle, when you pull that cut up the bundle has he hole in it for the background paper to show through. I used the hide function to NOT cut the hole out so that when I layered it with the lighter pink the dark is in the back... like the background feature. I am telling you if you don't already own a gypsy THIS IS A MUST HAVE!!!

The hospital is from Everyday Paper Dolls and the font is Hello Kitty

Some of the other cartridges have storks but I believe this one is my all time favorite.. it comes from Sugar and Spice and he has real character!

Forgive the delay on this layout being posted but I just started a new job and I am having a time adjusting to the new hours.... I hope you enjoy this page as much as I enjoyed putting it together! Happy Scrappin!

My New Scrap Home!

I have been working on my scrapbook room for quite a few months now trying to get just the right look and feel to what I want.. I think I made it.. Here are a few pics of "MY SCRAP HOME" I hope you like it... while it's not fancy it is the place I go to be with my favorite toys my Create, Expressions, and of course the Gypsy! They have the absolute center of the room and I built all my other sections around the stars of my room!

This is my stickles storage along with my prized Tim Holtz tin I made at CHA a couple years ago... I am a Tim Fan too

This is my rubber stamping area... Those are my stamps in the binders on the first shelf.. my ink pads are sitting under that shelf on the desk behind the light.. above those are my pens, chalks, and anything I need to stamp out my creations. The plastic drawers hold other goodies, scissors, clear stamp blocks. I have my wooden blocks in a drawer under the table!

This is my scrap area to the left of my cricut area... This is where I Put my pages together

This is under my cricut station... It's the papers I have that are in pads. The drawers under them are for border strips, mat stacks, and you can see tomatoes my Mom canned for me peeping out at you! Thanks Mom~!

This is my computer area where I sit and look at cricut.com! although that is Facebook and mafia wars up there on the screen now!

The next three pictres are of my various punch and embelishment storage... alot to keep me busy!

Let's Get Ready for School!

My Dad is a retired school teacher so school has always been an important part of my life even when I wasn't going to school. Let me first say that this is not an original idea, I was looking on the message board at cricut.com and saw a layout very similar to this one. I went to the board and tried to find the person so I could give them credit but it must have been over a year ago I saw it and I couldn't find it again.

The papers were some I had that was old not sure what company it is.. but I love the colors and think the primary colors are perfect with the subject matter.

All these things remind me of the first time I went to school ... glue... scissors... yellow pencils.. brings back alot of memories..I can almost smell the school... didn't school have a whole different smell than the rest of the world?

I love how the word recess is all in one piece... perfect for titles!

I had to do a bit of marker work to highlight some of the bus and the slide.... didn't you love the school slide? :-)

Okay enough of a travel down memory lane to school days... I hope you enjoy this layout as much I did making it! Please leave comments I love em!! And if you were the one that made the layout and posted it to cricut.com please let me know. I wanna give credit to where its due. Everyone stay cool in this HOT HOT HOT weather! It is the perfect time to scrap! Too hot to do laundry or housework!!
