Everything Scrapp'n

Hey! I have a few creations to share that I made using product that you can find at Everything Scrapp'n. Heather had an incredible sale at the end of January and I went a little crazy over Cosmo Cricket's line The Boyfriend.

We celebrated a co-worker's birthday on Thursday and I found the cute camera journal block very fitting since we're all photographers at my company. Here is a fun card I made for the occasion:
Products used: Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend Drivers Ed pp, Tube Socks pp, Homework pp, Ready-Set-Chip chipboard, Elements journaling block pp, Jenni Bowlin Reverse black alpha stickers, TwoGirlzStuff Licorice scallop label, & Staz On Ink-Timber brown.

The chipboard shapes create great depth and are fun to layer.Last year I spent a lot of time at the beach. I plan to again but I want to remember my experiences at each beach. Dan, Lisa, Sarah, and I met up at Ocean Beach in San Francisco to search for sea treasures. It was lightly raining but that didn't stop us. We had a great time hanging out and we even saw full sand dollars!
Products used: Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend Study Hall pp, Tube Socks pp, Art Appreciation pp, Ready-Set-Chip chipboard, Elements journaling block pp, stickers, Studio Calico diecut stickers, American Crafts fabric thickers Dolce-white, Doodlebug Designs loopy lou alpha stickers- Lily white, CatslifePress date stamp, & Staz On Ink-Timber brown.

The elements journaling sheet is great to layer. Not only do I use them for journaling, I double them up as sub titles and embellishments as well!
Teresa has a great challenge for the month of March. Please check out the details here. I had fun with my layout loosely based on the March challenge.
Hope you have a relaxing Sunday! Please check out the rest of the DT's work too. Ilene is the next stop. :D

Spring is here!

I'm so happy that this past week we had glorious weather. I've been able to bring out my tank tops and enjoy the sun during my lunch breaks. I love seeing all of the blossoms on the trees on my walk.
My friends know that I don't go shopping for clothing very often. I asked for a gift card to Express for Christmas so I could find some cute, well fitting jeans. And I did just that!
I fell in love with them so much that I got a second pair. Great jeans are so hard to find. I went a little wild at our local H&M store in San Francisco and bought several dress shirts, a cute jacket, dress, and two pencil skirts. I can't find pictures of them from their website so I'll just have to snap a few photos when I'm wearing them. ;)

Right now I want to:

Scrapbook like a whirlwind. Catch up on my unfinished mini albums. Finish reading two books I'm 1/2 through. Spring clean. Collect my favorite photos for a portfolio review. Post them to flickr and facebook. Take lots of photos with a few different cameras. Film & Digital. Find a car. Blog more. Go for a run daily. Back up all my data. Go to the beach. List inspired by Michelle Clement.

Everything Scrapp'n March Blog Hop!

I'm excited to share that we have Ilene as a Guest DT this month, so please welcome her! If you are coming here by way of Jana, then you are almost done! If not, please start the hop at Everything Scrappn's blog. If you leave a comment with each member, you will be entered in a chance to win a surprise pick of 3 stickles! I can't get enough of those. :)
I have been over winter and this cold weather for at least a month now. I'd much rather fast forward to spring/summer so I thought why not scrap with brighter colors? I love the brights in Prima's Tropics line. I enjoy matching my photos to paper so I couldn't help using these photos from Amy's Social Squitten (get together she organizes) from last March. Don't you just love her colorful shirt?Products used: Prima Tropics Turtle Dove pp, Rainy Breeze/Mango Cherries pp, Miss Macaw/Sweet Apple pp, Hambly ATC patchwork limited edition-Lagoon Blue metallic pp, Doodlebug Designs Beetle Black loopy Lou alphas, American Crafts Fabric Thickers Patchwork-ladybug, Maya Road Sheers calendar, American Crafts Flair-Craft Fair DIY, Zva Long flourish rhinestone 2-black, Elle's Studio Chic note tag-brights, Sassafrass Serendipity Happy Place sweet treats sticker, acrylic paint, Staz On Ink-Jet black & Making Memories Distressor.

I enjoy using these Hambly ATC sheets all the time because you get so much use out of them. I have made ATC's with them but they are also great for small journaling tags, embellishments and all sorts of other cool things!
I made this birthday card for someone special celebrating her birthday on Monday. I really like how these thickers are nice and small. They fit perfectly on the card!Products used: Prima Tropics Tree Frog/Waterfall pp, Miss Macaw/Sweet Apple pp, American Crafts Fabric Thickers Delight-black, Sassafrass Serendipity Happy Place sweet treats sticker, Staz On Ink-Jet black, Fiskars Apron lace border punch & black pen.

Prima's line caught my eye because of the gorgeous colors. I got a lot of mileage out of their Miss Macaw/Sweet Apple strip paper and I think that is really important these days. Use up as much of the paper as you can!
Well thanks for stopping by. Please continue on to Suz's blog to complete the blog hop. She'll have her creations up this coming Tuesday since she's dealing with a new home. :) I have lots of photos to edit and share very very soon! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Tv, Movies, & Music

I spent last weekend blowing through three seasons of The Office while I got over a quick cold. It was fun and I'm now a big fan of the series! I'm on season 6 and just adore the characters. I find myself giggling as I try to fall asleep because of something Dwight did that is just so funny! And to top it off, the actors & actresses in the show also write & direct for it.
I've watched two movies that were filmed in Las Vegas recently. I laughed so hard while watching The Hangover. I am glad I gave it a chance, it was so worth it! Even better, Ed Helms is in it! My Netflix account thought I should watch another Vegas movie. It suggested What Happens In Vegas, and I decided to check it out. Its a cute but silly movie.

I've been listening to a lot of One Republic lately. I love the third song on Waking Up, Secrets. I think the cello is what makes it great. Check out their CD if you haven't!
I'm really loving the free singles of the week from iTunes lately. I'm listening to Shark in the Water by V.V. Brown as I type this up. I like her energy and the beat. Lisa has got me hooked on and the Beach HouseVitamin String Quartet.
