Let's Go-Maya Road and Jillibean Soup

Popping in to post this layout that I had up over on the Maya Road blog.  If you want to see that post you can find it HERE.    I have details for all the fun stuff I added linked over there.  This is going to be short and sweet, well, you will see why at the end!

And I had to throw a little pink in there, since my shirt was pink!

Now...here is what happened a week ago........


That would be me, with a sewing injury!  I sliced the tip of my finger off with a rotary cutter while cutting fabric out!  Of course, I did it at 8 pm, when my in network urgent care had just closed.  So after waiting about an hour to see if it would stop bleeding, we decided I needed to go somewhere. After calling to see how much it would be for me to got to the ER (200.00 just to walk in the door), I opted for an out of network urgent care that was still open. 

The bonus for going to an out of network urgent care vs. in network ER...I was home within about an hour.  The dr. told us while he was working on my finger that someone had came in for stitches that had went to the ER.  They were told it was a 14 hour wait!  OMG....no way!!!

 You are looking at 250.00 later!  They had to cauterize it to stop the bleeding and then put some kind of gel foam on it.  I am down to bandaids and gauze pads, but typing can be difficult and slow at times!  

Tomorrow I will show you the picture of the cardigan that I have dubbed "The 300.00 cardigan" that I was making!  Have a great Thursday!

I love this little library pocket.  I added the polka dot paper to the inside, but the green houndstooth print was in the digital kit I used from Allison Pennington.

Sleepy Boy-A Flair for Buttons

I was going thru projects that I hadn't posted on the little old blog here and I realized that I never posted this layout I did for "a flair for buttons".  Honestly,  I am in tears right now while writing this post, but this happens every time lately when I find something that has to do with Higgins. Damn, it's just hard.

Higgins was so tired, but he was having so much fun at Nationals.  And yes, this is another hybrid layout.  I used a template from FiddleDeeDee Designs and then mostly Mommish digital items.  I love how this turned out.  All digital items can be found at The LilyPad store.

This little camera flair went perfectly with the colors in the collection!  Love that Shelley's flair works with just about everything I put it with!  And that folks, would be why I love it!

This one phrase was from One Little Bird.  Secret...I crush on Peppermint's sentiments/sayings in her kits.  I don't know if it's a font or her handwriting, but I love it!

Ok, that's all from me.  I can't really see the screen at this point.  I will be back later in the week.  Have a great Monday.  Hugs!

You Are My Person-Therm O Web and Fancy Pants Designs

Back today with a traditional layout that was up on the Therm O Web blog last week.  This one has a FULL sheet of DecoFoil as an accent!  It was an idea that I have had for awhile and just decided to go for it finally!

I used the new Fancy Pants Designs-Millie and June collection.  The foil accents were perfect to play off of the DecoFoil  And it's created by one of my favorite digital designers, Amber LaBau!  

We had a "Take Your Dog to Work" day at work (well, bring them in at lunch and then take them home!) at the end of June.  My plan was to take Higgins, but sadly that was not possible.  Ella really wasn't up to it with her injury.  It was between Jetson or Sheldon and I decided it might be a good thing for Jetson to get out.  These pics I took in the car when I picked him up from the house. Don't ask how many I had to take to get this good one!  LOL

I decided to keep this layout pretty simple, just because of the "whee" factor of the full sheet of foil!  You can see details on how I did this layout over on the Therm O Web blog HERE.  I give a few tips on working with the full sheet of foam adhesive and the full sheet of foil.

Just a little journaling.  I am finding it really hard to journal now, hopefully that will come back over time.  I am just now getting to where I want to create and feel like I can.

Well, that's all from me this wonderful Thursday.  One more day to Friday and I am ready!  Have a great one.

Gotta Catch 'em All-The LilyPad Announcement and Scrapping with Liz

Even though I have been quiet, there has been a lot behind the scenes that happened in just the past week.  You know I love using Scrapping with Liz templates for hybrid projects and have found The LilyPad (TLP) a fun place to hang out. It reminds me of the days when I first found scrapping, message boards and Two Peas.  Except, I am the "hybrid" girl hanging out with all the digital girls!

Well, I was contacted by Laura, the site owner, to let me know that she had a spot for a hybrid team member and was I interested?  Well, heck yes!!  So, I am totally embracing my hybrid love and have become a Polly at the Pad!!  

Here is my first page, for the August BYOC (Build Your Own Collection) which is on sale now thru Sunday Aug 7th.  Basically a buy more get more of a discount sale, but the designers all create with the same theme/colors in mind so you can have an entire huge collection that coordinates with different styles.

Carleen is such a good sport to put up with me and the Pokemon craze!  She even will drive me around to get balls at Pokestops!  

That's all from me today and for the week.  Be back on Monday with something, just not sure what yet!!!  Have a great weekend!

Pet Me-Jillibean Soup and Maya Road

Well, it's been so quiet here and I am so sorry about that.  I am hoping a routine will happen fairly quickly.  I have lots of projects to share, but I haven't really felt like sitting down and just writing a post. 

This was up on the Maya Road blog awhile back, but I hadn't shared it here yet.  The backstory to this layout is that Jetson was scared of Tony when he first met him!  Now, Jetson loves Tony!  This was during our trip to the Cardigan Nationals and over at Laura and Tony's house.  We totally love their back porch area!

I loved using these kraft tags for a "border" of sorts!  And the little resin mums were perfect to cover the holes and dress them up a little.

You Are My Purpose and creashens Announcement

Hope everyone in the US had a great 4th.  Ours was low-key, because well, the dogs don't like fireworks and we don't like to spend the money on them! And as a bonus, Carleen and I both didn't feel that great this weekend.  So old movies on the couch and some episodes of Fixer Upper.

We are still trying to get into a routine here.  It's not so easy, let me tell you.  The puppers seem to be doing ok.  Sheldon has gotten a little more serious and Jetson has become a little more barky (that's putting it mildly!).  Ella is doing ok and her cart will come this week.  Hopefully I can take some video of her in it and post it here.

Announcement!  After doing the "Old Friends" page of Higgins and Cooper, I shared on creashens Facebook page.  Then I noticed she had asked about people doing hybrid.  So I took a chance and messaged her.  I am trying out the fit for the next couple of months, and I think I am going to like it.  Her shop is at the Digital Press HERE.  So, I thought I would share a project done with her "Purpose" kit today.

Still trying to figure out a quick process for me as far as putting a hybrid layout together.  I usually print all the papers in the collection that I think I will use.  I usually don't print the solids, just to save on ink, but if they will work for something then I will!  

You_Are_My_Purpose_Hybrid_Scrapbook_Layout_Creashens_Katrina_Hunt_1000Signed-2

For this layout, I put all elements into my Silhouette software and made them into print and cut files by pulling them in, tracing and grouping the trace.  Then I piled them onto a blank 8.5x11 file in Silhouette (note, having trouble with Silhouette and the wide format) and save them in the folder I have the kit.  That way they are ready to go whenever I want to use them and I just need to resize them.  I think this will work well in the future.

This tag, I just erased the "twine" from the top of it and then covered the area with my own little bow!

You_Are_My_Purpose_Hybrid_Scrapbook_Layout_Creashens_Katrina_Hunt_1000Signed-5

And I love this title!  Trace and then print and cut and I was done.  It would look really cool foiled with DecoFoil also!

Ok, short and sweet today.  I am doing this post before work, because I hit the bed early last night!  Have a great Tuesday!
