Paperartistsonline. It's a sketch from Club Scrap's Lock and Key kit in October 2013. All papers are from various Club Scrap kits. The spinner2stamp set is from The Stamps of Life. I used the stamp and die set to create a journaling tag for the layout. These photos show the adorable prairie dogs who reside near the entrance to the Badlands. I know. They're rodents. But I like 'em. Thanks for dropping by.

A quick card for my brother-in-law using the spinners2stamp dies from Stephanie Barnard at The Stamps of Life along with greetings from the tickets2stamp set. Love this little set and hope to do more with it soon. Cardstock from Club Scrap.

In line with my 2014 resolution to use my stash in a methodical manner, I assigned Bicycles to February. I've been working on layouts from my stash, a large portion of which is Club Scrap's Wheel & Sprocket kit. Most of these layouts are "half-baked" meaning they don't yet have photos or stories. But the framework is there when I locate the appropriate photos. I have scrapped "backwards" like this for years and it works for me. Anyway, just want to post proof that I have been making pages, even though they aren't in a presentable state yet. Although one of them was posted yesterday and the one in the top right corner is my very first layout in the popular pocket page style. And there are more where these came from......
Thanks for dropping by.

After lurking around on the Get It Scrapped site for about a year, I finally took the plunge and signed up for classes. This layout was made after watching a video about Bracket foundations on a layout. My February motif is Bicycles so I'm diligently working on using up my Club Scrap Wheel and Sprocket kit materials. And that is quite a challenge. I have posted this layout as my first offering over at Get It Scrapped. We'll see how I fit in.
Anyway, this style of layout is way out of my comfort zone but I'm happy with the result. As you may recognize, I am a two page layout person so one page makes me feel a little lost. Most of my photos come from days when I've taken a boatload of pictures. These two, however, are from 1987, the pre-digital days. When I might only take two photos at an event or on any given outing. Roy and I biking on the American River Bikeway (as it was known back in the day). All supplies are Club Scrap except for a few little embellishments. Thanks for stopping by.

For our Squirrely Get Together last weekend, Nancy had a fantastic idea which she called the Shoebox Project. Each of us brought a card sample and all supplies for the other two to create the same (or similar) card. Farley and I each made two cards based upon Nancy's samples which were adorable. This was one of mine. I have that very flower stamp set but have I ever used it? Noooooooo
It was a great crafty weekend and this Shoebox idea was fabulous. If you want to check out Farley's results, click here.

Still playing with my Stampin Up owl punch. Love that little guy. Various stamps used from The Stamps of Life and Sizzix, with a bit of Papertrey Ink thrown in for good measure. Sweet card. Thanks for swinging by.
