 Here is the finished layout from last week along with it's corresponding page! There are close ups later in this post. This week I am going to highlight three of my favorite tools which I used in the above layouts and in today's layout. 

 I always like to see what other's can't craft without and so I thought I'd share my faves. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you could not craft without!

 Here is a pic of the layout from the video.

Here are close ups of last weeks layouts completed.

Since I will be away form home for the next month and a half, I am sad to say that there will be no new posts for that period of time. We are off to camp and then vacation with the family! It is going to be busy but awesome!

Have a great summer but don't forget about me :) I'll be back!

Scrapbooking Scraps

Super early post this week!
Here is a fun way to use up scrap paper. 
It is so versatile because you can use any shape: heart, star, circle etc.
It is also great for cards as well as layouts.

Here is the simple procedure :)
A BIG sorry about the lighting on this.
But you get the idea :)

I did not have time to complete the layout but here is the beginnings.

And here is the card I forgot to show you.

And finally, here is a different shape.

Hope you find this tip useful.

I always like to find things to make as gifts for people and this is a super option and so much easier than you would thing.

And here are some pictures of the first one I showed you in the video.

Father's Day Card

OK, finally a tutorial on a card. Although I am more a scrapper than a card maker I have recently been working on a lot of cards. And since it is almost Father's Day I thought a Father's Day card idea may be appreciated. I found this idea in a Stampin Up catalog and worked out the templates for myself. Hope you like it!

9"X4" scored in half at 4.5"

4"X5.5" shirt
Collar marked 1" from the top

Draw and cut out a tie

*You could fold the paper in half 
and cut half a tie out 
and open in up to the full tie. 
This way it will be symmetrical.

Fold the collar down so that the top edge points down at an angle to touch the top of the tie.

Add eyelets, brads or buttons to the collar and adhere the shirt to your card!
