Christmas Gift Tags | Hybrid - And a free template!

I just realized I never even posted this project, and today it was featured on the Chelle's Creations blog! Woo-hoo!! I made this project to coordinate with the recipe cards I gave away in July. After all, if you bake homemade goodies to give away, especially at the holidays, how much cuter are they with a custom gift tag attached?

For credits and more projects visit: Hybrid Projects Album

I was so excited about being featured that I made my design into a template to give away! The original design creates 3 tags on a 4x6 file, which can be printed as a photo, or at home on an index card. Cut the tags apart, fold down the center, attach a ribbon and you're done! The template freebie also includes the same design in 5"x7" and 5.5" x 8.5" plus PNG files of the word art.

Best CT EVER and a call - come join me!!

A couple weeks ago, ScrapMatters held a site Creative Team (CT) call, so of course I applied! This was the very fist site I joined when I started digi scrapping. I about fell out of my chair when I received an e-mail soon after that I was invited to join their CT!!! YIPPEE!!!! I can't even say how excited I was - and am - for thisi opportunity. Starting September 1, I'll be doing even more great projects using the terrific products of their great designers.

Right now, ScrapMatters is having another call for ScrapMatters Girls. In exchange for hanging around on the site and helping to make it a fun and friendly place to be, you can earn free product. Check out the site here! Applications are open until September 10.

Pocket Card | Hybrid

I made this hybrid project this week, using a new template from Krisi's Kreations, the Line It Up: Templates v.1. This template set includes a variety of borders and strips that work for digital pages and hybrid projects. I made a hybrid card (and a layout to make it look cute in the gallery!) The scrapbook kit I used included the fun denim pocket element, so I decided to make that into a real pocket to hold a tea bag and a note. I used a flower element from the kit to embellish the paper clip as an extra touch, I thought it might be useful to clip the note into the pocket so it didn't fall out!

From Hybrid Projects

I was excited to see that Krisi picked my project to highlight on her blog for Friday's product announcement, and it was also featured on the Trixie's Scrap Stars blog today!

Let's Eat! | June 27, 2010

I officially have three scrapbook pages done of my family reunion trip in June! Yippee!! When I got this new kit from Pixel Gypsy and Amanda Carlson Designs, On the Grill, I knew exactly what to do with it!

Let's Eat!
One thing I know for sure... where this family gathers, there will be FOOD. It will be GOOD, and there will be LOTS of it! Different family members took turns planning the menu for each night and then cooking for everyone. Sunday night was one of my favorites. Pat’s family picked hamburgers, and Dan was the grill master. Some of us ate outside, where of course - everything tastes better! The weather was perfect, and as the evening wore on, a storm moved in over the mountains, complete with sound effects.

Note to Self and Little Pieces of Me | August 10-13, 2010

I've decided to make a deliberate effort to scrap more pages about me, sort of artistic journal pages. This week, I made two.

First is Note to Self, just a simple layout with my photo and a quote that I was inspired by this week.

Next is Little Pieces of Me, where I used journal strips to just tell a bit about who I am right now in life.

Coming soon: I just got a sneak peek of PixelGypsy's fun new collab releasing next week, and I already have the perfect photos in mind! (That NEVER happens!!)

Thank You Box & Note | Hybrid

I just love classic black & white, and I love it even more with a bold shot of red! I really liked this black & white print paper, and knew it would be fun for this project.  The main part of the box is big enough for some chocolates or maybe some other treats like tea or coffee. The separate pocket on the front is the perfect place to tuck a short note, and one thing I thought this would be perfect for is a little "get well" package with some instant chicken soup in the box. 

This is a new template from Krisi's Kreations, Backpack Template Junior, and the instructions include how to place and tie the ribbons to make mini backpack straps, like you can see in her preview. In mine above, I tinkered with the ribbon placement and it looks a little more like a purse.

Colorado Vacation Highlights | June 25-July 4, 2010

I've officially started scrapping my recent vacation! Woo-hoo!! I picked one photo to represent each day of the trip, and made a quick 2-pager showing off some highlights. There are hundreds more photos of this trip, so many more pages to come!

I made these pages using 3 of the 4 products in Pixel Gypsy's August Grab Bag. There are some great basics in this set, and it's a sweet deal until the end of this month. You can check it out HERE.
