Welcome to my New Personal Scrapbooking Blog!!

I have been wanting to start this one for a long time, but the site, the store and gallery have kept me a bit busy.

I am thrilled to start this, I love to share great tips and technique ideas, and love all forms of art. So hopefully you will enjoy this blog and gain lots of inspiration.

In the most recent issue of PaperCrafts there is a cute purse made with paper and Iron On Vinyl by Thermo Web. I thought it was soo cool that I purchased it by the bolts to sell in the store. I think it will be here early this week so I can try it out.

I also did a quick little make up of the Daisy D's Valentine Card kit. They are cute as can be. It is hard to see in these photos but I sprayed the Glimmer Mist on them, and on the ribbon too.

If you click on the Daisy D's link above and then scroll down you can see the photos.

Later today I am going to be working on a couple more themed Rolodex cards for the swap going on in the Serendipity Scrapbooks Forum. I need to make up some Christmas and Bling ones. I will post them here when I get them done. I did a slide show on the right of some previous rolodexes I have done.

These rolodexes are Quotes ones- I keep them on the round wheel for ideas. They have themes, and sometimes we use a quote to go with the theme and sometimes a general quotes just depending.

I just saw in the Forum that they are doing Recipe cards too, I am not the master cook, so I didn't sign up for this round. I may in the future months though, since I do have some wonderful cookbooks.

So totally of this subject what did you all get for Christmas?? Anything scrapbooking related?? I got some digital gift certificates and a Bamboo Fun Tablet. Here is the one I got, it is the small one, but I am told to start that way and see if you like it.

It came with a sample program Corel Painter Essentials 3! Awesome and fun.

I also got a new tamaron Telephoto lense for my Camera and CS2.

So share , please post what you got, since all of us addicted to scrapbooking have nothing against checking out things right-LOL???

Have a Happy new Year !! Take awesome photos- see you in 2008
Pin It!

Awesome blog Kristen. Now to find the time to keep up with it. Kind of like me!!! I have things I want to say just not enough time to write them up.

I was lucky this Christmas. My dh bought me a new camera bag to hold all of my lens and a Canon Macro lens. Love it. With the camera bag came a new battery for the camera and some filters for the lens.

Oh and I got a Crop a dile!!! Haven't taken it out of the package yet but plan on it in the near future.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
