Happy Holidays and...

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

Santa Roxy is ready to celebrate the holidays too!


December Tag Swap

It was my turn to think of the tag challenge this month, and I thought this one would be super easy.  We all had to create a tag using either the title, a verse, words or just inspiration from the song "Believe" sung by Josh Groban from the movie"Polar Express".  Did I say, I thought this would be easy?  For some reason every idea I came up with turned out in a mess, so after a few attempts, I just gave up and did this one.  How does Tim Holtz come up with those fabulous ideas every night for 12 days?  Anyways, here's my tag:

Even my photo turned out kind of blurry!  I used paper from Fancy Pants' new winter collection,Sizzix and Tim Holtz snowflake dies, a few of Tim's snowflake stamps, Tim's winter limited release inks, and acrylic for the back piece.  The acrylic was embossed with a Tim Holtz snowflake embossing folder, then I tinted some Rock Candy crackle paint with Distress stain and scraped it on the acrylic.  While it was still wet, I sprinkled green glass glitter and clear Mica flakes on top.  The "Snow is softly falling" is a line from the song, which I printed directly on the paper. I print first on a piece of regular printer paper, then tape my tag with removable tape onto the paper, lining up where I want it to be printed and put through the printer again.  I added a few diecut snowflakes (American Crafts glitter paper) a Memory Box diecut bell and ribbon. I glad I got these done, now onto my do-to list, which keeps getting longer!
Have a great weekend!


Tim Holtz Tags

I am amazed I've actually been able to do four of Tim's 12 tags of Christmas.  I have been so busy the last week, but at night, when I really need to take a break, instead of just watching t.v., I work on my tags. (and listen to the t.v.!)  This 4th tag was a little more involved, but it was fun to do.  I love anything to do with snowflakes!  Here's my tag from day four:

I used pretty much the same things as Tim's tag on this one.  I loved doing the background technique on this tag.  The rock candy crackle paint technique is so cool, except I put way too much on in some parts, and the crackle came off and left some bare spots.  I filled in those areas before I stained it and it was fine.  I'll know better next time!
This is Tim's tag #6.

At first I wasn't sure about this one, but I think it was all the different colors of paint on the tag that didn't appeal to me.  Still into the snowflake theme, I chose this Tim Holtz embossing folder.  I used three colors of Ranger paint dabbers;  pearl, silver and aqua.  I used the aqua for the background, pearl for the snowflakes, and the silver was around the outer edges of the snowflakes.  After burnishing the painted tag, I inked the whole tag with Twig Distress ink (from his Autumn collection).  I really like how the color turned out!  I forgot to mention, I didn't have any of his metal adhesive sheets, or should I say, I think I have them but after looking for half an hour, couldn't find them!  I used one of Spellbinder's metal sheets (I did find those!) and glued it to my cardstock with Claudine Helmuth's Matt Medium (best glue, ever!)  Instead of a charm, I die-cut a snowflake with chipboard and a Sookwang adhesive sheet on top.  I then covered it with Craft & Glitz glitter.  I love blending different colors of this glitter together, you can make your own custom colors.  I used lime green, sand and gunsmoke blue for this combination.  I then filled one of Tim Holtz's mini bottles with mica and attached the two to my ribbon. This was probably the easiest tag to make so far, it didn't take long at all!
Have a great Friday!

Tag #2

This is a quick post today, I'm supposed to be decorating my house for Christmas.  But, what am I doing? Tim Holtz tag #2.  I have a huge mess right now, boxes are everywhere, ornaments on every surface, but those tags keeping distracting me!  Here is my tag:
I didn't have his holiday resist papers, so I just stamped with clear embossing ink and one of his stamps.  Instead of burlap, I used some linen I had tea stained (from an old cross-stitch project). That's all for today, I have to go empty out more boxes!

Tag #1

Every year I follow Tim Holtz and his twelve tags of Christmas, but I never seem to have the time to make any of them.  Well, I'm really going to try this year to make them.  At least I have finished the first one, so that's better than the previous years!
The photo is not the greatest, it was so dark and gloomy this morning when I took it.  Love this pinecone die, it's one of my favorites!  Hopefully I can get the second one done tomorrow.

I'm off to the Festival of Trees.  The Urban Scrapbook tree won 2nd place for Best Design!!  We are all pretty excited at the store, they featured it on the local television station this morning.
Have a great weekend!


Those Urban girls...

have been as busy as Santa's elves!  Urban Scrapbook decided to donate a decorated tree at The Festival of Trees this year and we have been frantically making hundreds of flowers for the decorations.  I think the tree turned out fabulous, what do you think?

All the flowers, garland and bird were made from white and red cardstock and lots of glitter! I think we will find glitter in all sorts of places for a couple of months!  All the trees are auctioned off at the Snowflake Gala and the proceeds go to the Alberta University Hospital Foundation.  If you live in Edmonton, make sure you get to the festival, the trees are all gorgeous!
After working with all that white, it was a nice change to use My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas for Urban Scrapbook's  December monthly challenge.  Here's mine:

In our kit, we had different elements to alter; chipboard, wood, acrylic and metal.  My favorite part was altering my Spellbinder metal sheet!  I used a Memory Box die, alcohol ink, and a technique using archival ink, which usually is done on acrylic.  The kits go on sale December 1st.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!


It started with a card...

I decided to start on my Christmas cards yesterday and after finishing one, I got a little sidetracked.  I don't know how it happened, but I ended up making a little Christmas tree.  I had been on Martha Stewart's website early and loved her newspaper tree so I was inspired to try one.

 My tree definitely didn't turn out like hers, but I went for the more whimsical look(that's what I call it when everything is a little wonky or not perfect - it's whimsical!) and used a chipboard spool from Wendy Vecchi's art parts for the base.  I covered the base with Authentique  Christmas papers and hot glued my tree wire inside.  I used book paper instead of newspaper for the tree. I also used Sage Distress stain and sprayed Tattered Angels Marshmallow, and Spanish Moss Glimmer Mist on the book pages before stringing on the tree.
The glitter snowflakes are chipboard snowflakes cut out with Tim Holtz's small snowflake die and then covered in silver glass glitter.
The thin silver wire is silver bullion wire that is tightly coiled and you pull it apart to wrap lightly around projects.  I purchased this at Tinsel Trading. After the tree was put together, I sprayed it all with spray adhesive and sprinkled Shaved Ice and Tarnished Mica Flakes (both from Urban Scrapbook).  I added a bit of Distress Stain dyed seam binding to the wire stem on the top and bottom of the tree too.
On the spool, I added some Tim Holtz mini bottles, filled with the Shaved Ice and a few acrylic snowflakes.  There's my tree, but on the Martha Stewart website, she has a video showing how to put the tree together.
Here also, is the one card I got done!
I used Webster's Pages Holiday  papers, Tim Holtz doily die, Spellbinders label die, and Memory Box snowflake die.  The adhesive ribbon (love this ribbon!!!) is new at Urban and there's even adhesive lace ribbon.  It is so nice for cards.  The berries on the side of the card are also from Webster's Pages(last year).  Hopefully I don't get too sidetracked again, and get more cards done!  Till next time!



has officially arrived here.  We had our second snowfall yesterday, this one making driving a little challenging.  Last week we had just a dusting of snow, so it still felt like fall.  Yesterday, it took me almost an hour to get home from work instead of 15 minutes.  Now with this snow, it certainly is putting me in the Christmas mood. I might just start those Christmas cards early.  Oh I know, most of you have had yours finished weeks ago, but I'm always scrambling to finish at the last moment.  The amount I plan to make usually dwindles as I get closer to the deadline.
 I still want to scrapbook some fall photos, and this week's color palette #84 at The Color Room was perfect.  Here's my layout:    
  I used Bo Bunnies "Et Cetera" line, the colors were pretty close to the palette.  I first lightly inked the background paper in the center with a chicken wire mask from The Crafter's Workshop.  I then cut out some District Market tissue paper using my new Tim Holtz Sizzix Doily die.  First I stained the tissue with a few different shades of brown Distress stain and after it dried, I folded the paper in half.  I placed it on the die with the folded part on the edge where it wouldn't cut out so it would be a full circle.  I then lightly brushed some Matt Medium (Claudine Helmuth) on the paper, placed the doily on top and brushed more matt medium on top, just enough to glue down the whole thing.  I punched out a border on both sides of a strip of paper, using the EK punch "Aster".  Down the center, I used the new We R Memory Keepers ribbon tool.  This one is the leaf design - very easy to use!  I added a 7Gypsies ruler, Bo Bunny brads & trinkets, Pink Paislee butterflies and some hemp string.  The flower was made with 7Gypsies tissue paper and plastic netting that I had saved from somewhere (groceries, maybe?)  There's also a small tissue flower and leaves cut out with Tim Holtz dies too. These two photos were taken in our car, looking up at the sun roof.  When we were on the east coast last month, there was quite a rain storm, blowing leaves everywhere.  When I looked up, I thought it looked cool with the leaves floating in the water and the trees above.
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!



There is lots of inspiration over at Tammy Tutterow's blog and this week she had me excited to try her technique with embossing!  I loved what she did with Ranger's Rock Candy crackle paint and embossing folders, so I sat down at my cluttered table (didn't I just clean this off the other day?) and pulled out my Tim Holtz snowflake folder.  When I started, I was sure I remembered what she did, but of course, I didn't and forgot to stain my paper before I embossed.  So I figured I'd try what I've been doing in the last week, put my medium on my non-stick craft sheet and adding color to it before I apply it.  I added a bit of Peeled Paint and Broken China stain to my mat and added my Rock Candy, lightly mixing it in.  It gives it a slight bit of color and still is transparent.  Taking a small square piece of plastic, I scrapped it lightly over my embossed tag.  Tammy gives a great step by step tutorial on her blog.  Here is my finished tag:

After my embossed paper was dry, I stamped lightly with Tim Holtz's Holiday Wishes music note stamp.  I used my Tim Holtz tag die and cut out my tag backing with light green American Crafts glitter paper.  I then cut out a rectangle from my embossed paper slightly smaller than the tag and inked the edges (Broken China).  Then, because I really wanted to use my new snowflake movers and shapers die (yet again, Tim Holtz) I cut out lots of printed tissue paper (District Market) but this time, I remembered to stain the paper with Broken China before I cut them out.
With matt medium, I glued a few of the snowflakes to the edges of the embossed paper and then adhered the embossed paper to my tag.  I then strung the rest of the snowflakes on very thin florist wire, dabbed glossy accents on parts of the wire and snowflakes, and sprinkled mica flakes (love these!) over top.  After the flakes were dry, I stuck the ends of the wire under each side of the tag, in between the two layers.  I added some bling which I colored lightly with alcohol ink( I always color clear rhinestones to get the color I want, with alcohol ink) the "winter" mirrored acrylic piece from Prima, stained seam binding and tulle, which I dabbed Stickles on it to give some sparkle.
Thanks to Tammy for her great inspiration, I have a new technique that I love!
Have a great day!

November Tag Challenge

I got my tags done early this month, yeah!  Having "Christmas" as the challenge made it super easy. Here's what I came up with:
The patterned paper I used is the Christmas Collection from My Mind's Eye. The leaves, swirls and pine cone are cut out with Tim Holtz's Festive Greenery die and the "25" is also one of his dies.  It's hard to tell in the photo, but the pine cone is cut out with dark brown glittered paper and then I glued tarnished mica fragments on top. Some ribbon, a word sticker (Simple Stories) and it's finished!
Now that those are finished, I can play with my new doily and snowflake Tim Holtz dies!
See you soon!

Catching up....

on a few projects, or at least trying to.  I have a bad habit of starting something and then when I'm in the middle of it, I get another idea or buy new stuff and start something else.  I seem to have a lot of unfinished projects spread around my craft room, and it looks like one big disaster area!  I managed to finish one of those layouts that has been sitting in pieces for months.  I love this outdoors collection by Kaiser, it's perfect for those guy layouts too.  My husband loves fishing, and has passed that love onto our sons too.  It's just too bad they don't always have good luck in catching very many!
The stickers, tags, and large wood leaf are from Kaiser also.  I colored the wood leaf with Distress stain and then used a 7Gypsies rub-on on one side. The leaves were cut out from grunge board and the Tim Holtz mini leaves die, dry embossed and  embossed with Ranger gold embossing powder.  The letters and leaf charm are from Prima.
Well, I'm on to the next project!  Have a great weekend!

It's November 1st and that means...

the Urban Design Team layouts are on display at the store.  This month we had the challenge of using masks from Prima, along with the gorgeous Glitz collection, "Vintage Blue".  Each kit also comes with a chalk inker from Prima's new Ingvild Bolme's ink and tool line.  I really like this ink, the shape is designed for easier handling, which it is, and the color(we had a navy called Farmer's Jeans) is rich.  I chose Heather C's layout to do instructions for the kit that is on sale at Urban, she did an amazing job!  Check out Urban's gallery to see them all.  Here is my layout:

I used modeling paste on my brick mask.  Using a small paint spatula or plastic card I applied the paste on half of the mask,  then carefully lifted the mask and applied to the other side, so it went across the whole page.  I left out a few bricks too.  After the paste dried, I squeezed small amounts ofTim Holtz Distress Stain on my craft sheet.  I used Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap,Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo and Old Paper.  With a Paint Brush I lightly colored the bricks.  You don't need very much to stain these and they blend together just as you see them.  I used a heat gun to dry them, they didn't seem to dry good on their own.  I also alcohol inked the Prima resin window and the pin top.  The blue flower was made with a Spellbinder die, Spiral Blossom One (Love this die!), the doily from a Cheery Lynn die and the banners are from Tim Holtz Sizzix.  I also painted the bird and birdcage with Tim Holtz Crackle paint.  My crackle paint is always drying up, whether because it's really really dry here or I just don't use it fast enough.  So now I just buy white (Picket Fence) and color it with Distress Stain. I don't use much stain, the more you use, the thinner the paint, which I find doesn't crackle as much so put it on thicker.  
When we were in Victoria, B.C.  in July, we went to see this castle.  It was originally a private residence and now is a college.  We weren't able to go inside, there were classes going on, but the outside gardens were incredible.  I want to take a course just so I can see the inside and enjoy the gardens!
Have a great day!


Happy Halloween!

It's spooky time in our house, how about you?  Here's a Halloween layout using Kaiser's Halloween paper and embellishments:

Have A Safe and Happy Halloween!!

A Halloween Tag

I've neglected this blog lately, and October is one of my favorite months.  I usually am busy creating spooky and fun Halloween stuff but I haven't done much this year.  Here is my tag for my monthly tag swap, that I was scrambling to finish.  Someone was a little ambitious in choosing a theme, we won't mention any names (Nicole!!!) and we had to having moving parts and noise or something touchy,feely.
This one was pretty challenging, but this is what I came up with:

My tag base was some black chipboard (I wanted it to be sturdy enough to hold the little book on the front) which I covered the front and back(the back was put on last) with paper from Tim Holtz's Halloween resist paper. I inked and stained the paper with distress ink and stain.

I then drilled holes in a metal plate from Graphic45, on the left side (I used the Tim Holtz drill press, which went through this metal so easy!) I cut out some resist paper in the same shape and size as the plates for my book pages and another piece of chipboard for the back, attached everything with Tim Holtz charm rings.  Before I put the book together, I alcohol inked purple and green on the plate and then sanded off some of the color.  Then I stamped a web image(this one is from Basic Grey) on the front center with staz-on black ink.
For the Skeleton Door Knocker, I bought a skeleton head bracelet from the dollar store and took it apart.  I cut a thin (about 1/4" wide and 2" long) strip of plastic from packaging, cut the top sides thinner (about 1/2 " in length) so it fit through the hole of head.  I took some thin wire, twisted it in a coil, so it wouldn't fall through, and put it through the skeleton head.  I then taped the plastic and wire together with Tim Holtz tape, covering the wire.  If you find your tape isn't sticking well, I usually glue it on with Claudine Helmuth matt medium,  and then it won't come undone.  I then stuck the bottom of the plastic tab to my front cover with a glue dot, and then covered the bottom, front and back with an embossed and alcohol inked scrap piece of metal paper.  This, I stuck on with Sookwang tape.  I wanted to make sure this didn't fall off, as it will be moving when it is used as a knocker.  I then used skeleton arms from a package of skeletons from the dollar store, attaching one to the ring and one(cut in half) to the side of the tag with a brad.  This one can slide over to keep the book closed, because there was a hole between the bones on the arm part where I placed the brad.  I then attached the book with longer brads through the chipboard back and then the chipboard tag.  This is why I covered the back too, so you don't see the backs of the brads.  I cut out a metal flower, using a flower die from Spellbinders and their metal paper, touching the edges with some alcohol ink.  I then cut apart a Halloween spray from Prima and used one of their mini fall flowers.  Cover the back and you are done!
I was inspired to make the metal plate into a book from Graphic45's blog, they have some really great ideas using their metal plates, flowers and door knobs!
Have a great weekend!

A canvas...

full of techniques and inspiration.  As I have said before, I really enjoyed Jennifer McGuire's on-line inspiration class.  Lots of stamping techniques, some new ones I hadn't tried before and some old ones that I forgot about!  This is my finished canvas,which I used an unfinished 11" x 14"wood one.  Instead of doing hearts for each technique, I used tags.  What I love about this canvas is; I can hang it up in my craft room and it's right there when I need inspiration!

I love decorating for Halloween, and hope to make a few decorations again this year.  Not that I need any more!  After creating my witch's hat for the Urban monthly kit, I'm in the mood to create more.  Maybe a wreath or garland next.  Garlands are always good for using stuff from the stash!

Have a great weekend!

It was a pink morning....

yesterday for my husband and myself.  I never imagined myself taking part in "The Run for the Cure," Edmonton's breast cancer annual walk, especially as a survivor.  My life changed in December 2009, when they found a lump during a routine mammogram and it continued to change for almost the entire year following.  After two surgeries, six months of chemo and a month of radiation, I was ready to get on with my life as a survivor.  I walked last September for the first time and was overwhelmed, looking out at the crowd of people offering their support for friends, family and loved ones.  Let's hope they find that cure soon, but in the meantime, check those boobies and have your annual mammogram!

We were on our way back and were amazed how many walkers were still coming!

And on a lighter note, I know I did say the other day, I was going to show a Halloween tag
that I had finished. Here it is: 
I used a few techniques that I have learned from Jennifer McGuire's online inspiration class.  The tag was made with glossy paper, embossed, and then the raised areas sanded.  I then inked the whole tag with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap distress ink.  The sanded areas become darker after the excess ink is wiped from the tag.  I cut out a chipboard witch with my Tim Holtz die, covered it with Rocky Candy crackle paint and then after it was dry, wiped distress stain over top.  The acrylic branch is from Kaiser, the potion circle is Echo Park, patterned paper is Pink Paislee(the accordion flower) and the wicked metal embellishment is from Tim Holtz.
Tomorrow I will show you my finished canvas from Jennifer's class!  Have a great Tuesday!


And it's October....

already!  Where did September go?  We've had a beautiful fall so far, with temperatures reaching in the high 20's, a few days of 30 C and lots of sunshine.  Not our usual September, that's for sure.  I love this time of year, the colors of the leaves, the crisp morning air and I even managed to go for a walk along the river in one of our favorite parks to take it all in before those leaves are gone!

I especially love decorating for Halloween, I think it's the colors that I enjoy.  The Urban Scrapbook design team have been busy creating for our monthly challenge this month.  We decided instead of layouts, to do a Halloween decoration.  Here's mine:

I bought one of those paper mache witch's hats from a craft store and cut it in half.  This way you can hang it up on the wall or put it in a wreath.

I cut out a piece of chipboard to fill in the back so it will be flat and then covered it with the kit's paper (Authentique's Glowing).  I painted the underside of the brim, and then embellished with all the goodies in the kit.  I printed the moon dust tag  with the plain foundation paper and got the tag graphics from Love Manor's flickr site.  Love these!

I gathered paper to make the trim, made a medallion with paper, crepe paper and stickles. I painted the Tim Holtz chipboard shapes then crackled with Rock Candy crackle paint, and painted over with Distress Stain.  Tucked some tulle behind, added a few sticker stars and moons and I think that's it.
I decided I still had the other half and some product left so I made another one.

The flowers were made with crepe paper and paper.  I used one of the new EK Success punches that you make flowers with.   These are really nice!  You can't tell very good by this photo but the bird was painted, dipped in clear Utee and then, very quickly while still sticky, I poured on colored Frantage Mica Fragments.  These fragments are going to be showing up on a few projects, they are so cool!  There's a few different colors, beautiful golds, pewters, bronzes, you will have to check them out, Urban Scrapbook just got them in.

We keep getting in the most amazing products in at the store (I'm am still so broke this month) and this week the dies from Memory Box were extremely hard to resist!  Here's a card I made using the twiggy tree and leaf canopy dies.

This fall and halloween paper is also from Memory Box.  There are three different leaf canopy dies and these cut out the opposite way, not sure if I'm explaining this properly.  You use the negative cut?  So your paper underneath shows through and then I pop dotted the tree trunk on top.  Very simple and easy card to make!  There are some gorgeous snowflake, Christmas, and winter dies too.
Well, that's all for today, I have a Halloween tag to show you but I will leave that for tomorrow.  I'm going on the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk with Roxanne today, so I better get ready!
Have a great day!

September's Tag of the Month...

was a tough one for me.  It was Roxanne's turn to choose our challenge in our little "tag exchange" group which was, use a recycled item.  I thought it was going to be easy, I came up with a great idea.  But, it was one of those ideas that sound cool, but once I started making them nothing worked out the way I thought it would.  I should have quit when the lid from my bottle of diamond glaze split open when I was squeezing it and I had the stuff everywhere!  So I trashed that batch, and ended up with this:

I used an old book and cut out a lot of tags with Tim Holtz's tag die.  I put his mini butterflies mover and shapers die inside the tag.  I stamped on the top tag with Pink Paislee and Tim Holtz stamps. Using acrylic from packaging, I cut out a tag and then used rub-ons on the area where the butterflies were cut out. After stacking all the layers of tags with the acrylic one in the middle, I drilled holes in the four corners.  I then used nylon screws (colored with alcohol ink) to secure them together. Taking a bunch of the butterflies that were left from the tag cutouts, I stamped the top one with versamark ink, embossed it with clear powder, inked with Forest Moss distress ink and stapled them together.  I glued it on the tag, and finished it off with Forest Moss Distress stain, seam binding and tulle.  In this next photo you can see how many layers of paper I used (about 1/4 thick).

I haven't been working on any layouts lately, I've been having fun playing with stamps!  I signed up for Jennifer Mcguire's online class "Inspiration Showcase".  I'm lovin' this class! Lots of inspiration, tips and techniques, great videos and Jennifer is a great instructor.  If she offers this class again, I would highly recommend it.  This is what I've done so far:

Each tag is a different technique, and there will be five rows when I'm done.  Her samples are heart shaped but I decided to do tag shapes and I had this wood "canvas" so I decided to use it instead of a white canvas.  I put a light white wash over it, but I think I might put another one on before I adhere all the tags.  I haven't decided if I'm going to put a hole and ribbon in the tops of the tags.  What do you think?  I think it's a great idea to put all these techniques on a canvas, so I can just look at it on the wall for inspiration and so I can remember what the heck I did!  Well, I'm off to finish another row...
Have a great week!

Not much time....

for scrapbooking lately, the weather's been too nice!  My long weekend was spent finishing up our backyard project which started in July and unfortunately has dragged on for the whole summer. We decided to replace our concrete patio this year with a new one, and replace an ugly grass area with shrubs; which we thought would take just a week or two.  Ha! What were we thinking! Anyways, it's almost done and hopefully the nice weather will continue for a while so we can enjoy our patio for a few weeks.
I did get a layout done last week for The Color Room's #73 palette, which again I was able to use some of my new My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found" paper.  These papers are from the "Rosy" collection.

This photo is of my mother-in-law.  I also used some diecuts from Pink Paislee and one of their mistable journaling spots.  The piece of paper behind the photo is from a Making Memories notepad.  I like buying these little journaling or notebooks when they come with a line of paper.  They are great when you need a small piece of paper, but they usually have interesting shapes or borders to add interest to your page.  I crocheted a strip using baker's twine and attached the dimensional stickers. The little sticker letters are from Girls Paperie.

The large flower was made with Tim Holtz's tattered flower die using "Rosy" paper and tulle.  The center is one the the decorative brads in this line. The smaller ones are made from Rosy paper with a brad and glitter in the middle.  I almost forgot, I used the tattered lace die from Tim Holtz for the little accordion flower and the strip beside the photo.
Hopefully I  can get a few projects done this week.  With all this new product coming in (for some reason, this year all the scrapbook companies decided to ship everything in late August and early September) it's hard to keep up!  Every time I work, there's new product delivered, which only means one thing - I'm not bringing home a paycheck!  I tell my husband he should be grateful I don't work in a furniture store, now that could be expensive!
