January Card Challenge 2012

Happy New Year to you all! Hope your holidays were wonderful with family and friends. Also, I want to thank all of you that follow me and/or commented on my blog. Creatively, 2011 was a fantastic year for me and looking forward to more fun, exciting projects and opportunities this year.

Ok, here is the new January card challenge for Scrapping the Moments. I thought after all the busy holidays we could do an easy challenge. I am sure you all have scraps leftover from all the beautiful layouts and cards you made. So the challenge is to use your scraps to make a card.

Directions:

Use any shape or size scraps of leftover paper on a card. Make it as simple or fancy as you want. Here is what I did. I cut several strips of paper and adhered them to the card. That was it. Check it out!

Used white and pink cs, Echo Paper patterned paper, and the flower is from American Girl Crafts.

INSPIRED SHE: Meet Nylene Budge

Today's "Inspired She" features my first guest, Nylene Budge of Utah. I first met her years ago when I was an excited and new card maker and scrapbooker. She led an online group called the "Pokey Peas" at Two Peas in a Bucket papercrafting website.  She gladly welcomed me and the group cheered for me.



Over the years, not only have we shared our various creative projects but we have shared our lives. What a sisterhood! Thanks Nylene!!!!

Nylene is a wonderful crafter, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother. Although I know she would blush when I say this, but she is a master at making scrapbook pages and greeting cards along with other crafts.

One of her precious gifts is hosting an annual Summer craft camp for her grandkids at her home.  Even her husband offers his woodmaking arts to the event.

This year's theme was Dinosaurs. I love that she is passing on her passion for crafting to the next generations. These are fun memories they will alw…

My NEW Mini Journal Tutorial Video

Today's post is about a super cute mini journal album. I was inspired to make this project after I watched Mark Montano's YouTube Mini Art Journal tutorial. He always does great crafts and I had to try this one. Check out his YouTube Channel and his Website.

Here is my NEW YouTube tutorial video. The journal size is 2 1/2 x 3 inches. All you need is some cardboard, glue, lots of patterned paper and scissors/paper trimmer. These little booklets are a fun way to document your thoughts and pictures. Also, your kids would love this! Take a look!


I had a ball making this album and I had to make a few more.








You can used up some of your stickers, scraps of paper and other supplies to fill up these little books. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

NEW Cards with Anna Griffin Products

Happy Thursday! As many of you know I love making greeting cards and I have made tons of them since I started in 2006. When I saw Anna Griffin and her products on HSN years ago, I was in love. Since then, I have bought several of her popular card kits.

Last year, I was interested in buying a few individual pieces for card parties and my own personal use. I bought a box of patterned, prefolded 5x7 cards, a die set with embossing folder and  two boxes of card toppers. Finally this month, I had all the pieces to play around with.

Today, I am sharing some of the cards I made and how I did them. Take a look.






Now, I put the pieces all together and looka here!




Here are the links to Anna Griffin and HSN  Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
