Cards for Little People

December and January have a lot of card occasions for me, so I've started another card spree. Thought I would share the first one.

The first is a 2nd Birthday card for my friend's little girl. It's also a little sneak peak at the January kit :) The cupcake is cut & chalked from some of the kit paper.


SU! Chocolate Chip, SU! Pixie Pink, October Afternoon "Ducks in a Row", American Crafts "Forbidden Love"- paper; Scallop Edge Punch, Bazzill In Stitchz "Formal Flourish", green embroidery floss, circle cutter, corner rounder, Stampin' Pastels

To make the cupcake, I cut the cupcake out of the Forbidden Love paper in three colours (brown, dark pink & light pink). I cut the whole cupcake in brown, the topper & icing in the light pink & just the icing in the dark pink. I chalked each section with the matching colour & put them all together with pop-up dots.

Digital Scrapbooking

Despite being a big techie, I've mostly avoided digital scrapbooking. It seemed to remove most of the fun of feeling & looking at all my scrapbook papers & embellishments. Well, every year I make "year" scrapbooks as family Christmas presents. Reality has caught up with me. Reproductions is MUCH easier with digital. So I decided to make my "year" scrapbook digitally and reproduce many copies. Apparently, it still takes a while to design pages digitally too. It turned out to be quite a bit of fun after all. I think I still like "real" scrapbooking better but there's some really cool things you can do digitally. For the title of my digital scrapbook I used a free kit from

It turned out pretty nice, don't ya think?

December Kit Time!!

This month's kit from is pretty cool. It's a whole minibook in one kit. I managed to squish the whole project into just under 11 minutes :) Hope you enjoy it. Although the kit is for a recipe book featuring BoBunny's Kitchen Spice, I though I'd "spice it up a little" and make a differnt type of book from the same kit. I saw an idea quite a while ago, for a "week in our life" book. Our routine has changed so many times over the last few years that I thought a current life snapshot would be cool. It was a fun project. I took photos of our ordinary life for one week & then turn them into a book. By using pockets, tags and envelopes I managed to squeeze quite a few pictures into my book. Enjoy!
