A new year of blogging ...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Now that the holiday season is over, it's time to get back into the swing of things in my craft room. I was seriously lacking motivation and enthusiasm after taking a small break so it is a good thing I have a commitment to my lovely club ladies to provide projects for our monthly club. If it wasn't for having to prep for club, I would probably still be in a funk!! These pictures are the projects we did this month. I had to expand my comfort zone and do a scrap page. I will freely admit that I am intimidated by scrapping so this club will benefit me in a big way as it will force me to overcome my fears!!! hehe Sounds like scrapping is sooo scary but for some reason having more space to fill seems too much for me. Thankfully I was able to CASE this layout from SU's November Stampin' Success. A scrap page is definitely a personal thing so it was nice to see how everyone tweaked their pages to suite their own tastes. We also made a gate fold card using the stamp set and paper from the Loads of Love promo. We also used the beautiful red glitter paper which was punched out with the small heart punch. The third card was made using the Build a Blossom stamp set and Blossom Petals punch from the Occasions mini which just came into effect on January 4th. This mini is incredible and there are so many wonderful new products and, of course, I have to have everything. Keep checking in to see samples of projects made with these new products. I am anxiously awaiting my next order so that I can show you more!!! Okay, I'm an addict!! Take care.



  1. Loved the projects this month Pat!! Actually loved the projects every month so far! You have some great ideas. I won't let my hubby see the gatefold card cause he is getting that one for Valentines Day!
