Retro Fresh Scrap Page

Hi! Staying inside, trying to stay warm from this frigid weather has given me lots of time to get some scrap pages complete! 
These pictures were from last summer when my great nephew Derrick got to come and spend a week with me.  We had so much fun, it was great to have a little one in the house again.

I used the Retro Fresh designer paper, framelits and washi tape available in the new Occasions Catalog.  I love the colors in this paper!

Have a great day! Shelley

Moving Forward

Hi! We still have freezing temperatures here in my part of the country! It is cold today but the sun is shining bright with the hope of Spring to be here soon. 

I made these cards the other day with the Moving Forward set from Stampin Up.  This is last years Ronald McDonald House set. I love this set and still use it a lot for my young nieces and nephews cards.  This year's set is called Tag It and is just as cute.  Stampin Up donates $3 from each sale to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  You can see this year's set here.

Don't forget about Sale-a-bration with your $50 purchase you can choose one of the items from the Sale-a-bration catalog.

Blue Ribbon Birthday

Hi! We still have frigid temperatures, from the sound of the forecast it is here to stay at least for the next week.  But Spring will be here before we know it!

One of my nephews turned 13 on Sunday, I made him a  birthday card with the stamp set Blue Ribbon.  I really love this set.  I used Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango.  The Tangerine Tango is embossed with the stripes embossing folder.

Off to get some work caught up.  I love working from home!

Valentine Treats

It is a snowy day here in West Virginia, huge flakes are still coming down.  Glad I don't have to be any where today, I can sit in my warm room and see the beauty outside.

I made some simple Valentine treats this week.  I used the Chalk Talk framelites to make the tag, some washi tape and stamps from one of the months Paper Pumpkins and just paper clipped them to a bag of fun sized M&Ms. 

Have a great day~ Shelley

Scrapbook Weekend

I got to have some fun this weekend creating some scrapbook pages. I finally have all the instagram pix that I had printed scrapped!  My resolution this year is to finally create a scrapbook in   chronological order.  Mine are so random with pictures from different years. Not in order at all.

These are divided 12 x 12 pages, after putting them in the plastic I did get a bad glare.  The pictures are of my grand niece Amya, I have so many pictures of her.  I used some new products from the Spring catalog - Essential Wooden Elements and Hip Notes stamps that coordinate together.  Also I have new products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog- Banner Blast stamp set and coordinating Banner punch.  You can get those items free with each $50 purchase beginning January 28!

This last page is of our two cats - Pearl and Toby and our dog Capone.  All the papers are Stampin Up, the stickers I had picked up at a local Scrapbook store.

Have a great day~ Shelley

Sweet Birthday

Well all the holidays are over and it's time to get back on a regular schedule.  This month it may be a little easier for me, I am only working part time thru January! I am off work today at the office, which was a blessing because it is snowing and  so cold out! I try not to hate winter but this cold cold temperature is horrible.  With the wind chill it is suppose to in the negative digits tonight!

So, I made a bright fun card for today's post.

I used Cycle Celebration stamp set with Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise.

Stay warm ~ Shelley
