Happy New Year

Did you have a great holiday and new year?  We certainly have! This is the first time (in we can’t remember how long) that we have not had a schedule or places to go or people to see or anything at all to do. This has been a real staycation for us – thank goodness, ’cause we’ve needed it.

The first of the year marks the end of my December daily…to see all that we have been up to and to see my photos you can check out www.justforme365.wordpress.com that is where I keep my photos. I have been printing out many of the photos throughout the month and have been adding them to my Stampin’ Up pocket pages (so easy!) Just need to print off my last batch and then I’ll share the whole book (watch for that soon).

Our family always does a family photo on the first of the year, so I thought that would be the last page in my book.
For my page I used both the As You See It theme challenge this week and the sketch from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.



So, here is all that put together –


What do you think? Do we look rested and ready to take on a new year? I hope so! Have a great 2014 everyone!












Stamping a Scrapbook page

I realize that the card-makers with whom I hang around have adopted me as their own. But my roots are actually as a scrapbooker.  I will admit that I have not completed a traditional 12×12 scrapbook page in awhile. In fact, I have never tried stamping on a scrapbook page.  Lo and Beyond…. I have been inspired! Pssst…it may have been at Convention 😉

Without further ado…

I Freakin' Love You

I Freakin' Love You 2

I Freakin' Love You 3

My page uses the Epic Day Paper and a whole lot of the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (Absolute must have out of the catalog) and the title is from my new Convention set – Yippee Skippee.

And if you’re eyeing up that cutout….that “I ❤ U”…it’s one of the pieces from the new Thinlits Card Dies- Available August 1st!

My first tiptoe back into scrapbooking has felt like a HUGE SUCCESS and I am ridiculously excited to do more….MUCH MORE! So stay tuned! 😀
