Start by punching 5 circles. (I used a scalloped circle, but a normal circle works fine too.) I used old dictionary paper cause it was handy and easy to manipulate, you'll see why. Ink the edges. (nothing better than getting inky fingers, well, almost nothing better. Think chocolate)
Stack all 5 together and staple twice in th middle. See:Scrunch up the center circle tight. See:And continue scrunching up each layer until you get this, this pretty rose type flower! See! Use to decorate your pages or cards. You'll notice I don't often make cards, so if you ever get one from me, it's cause I must like you an awful lot. :) Or I was broke. lol
So see, easy peasy. Let me know if I need to explain anything more, or just leave me a comment telling me ya love me. lol I know, I know, you just love that I find good ideas. lol
(And thanx for not teasing about my newfound love of all things bold and italic! )
(guess who just figured out how to do that!)
K, see you soon!

Your challenge this week is to scrapbook a Celebration.
This weekend I was at a scrapbook retreat and scrapbooked Kbear's 2nd birthday. The new Jenny Bowlin that Kari picked out for me to use is very yummy. Perfect for a little princess ;) I have decided that I am going to use the same (or similar) layout for each birthday I scrapbook, so that we can see how she has grown and changed over the years (incase you were wondering why it looks familiar lol)
Dont forget to share your challenge creations with us!

I am working on a super secret project which a lot of the photos are for, but I have lots of Kbear too from the past few months so hopefully I can catch up a bit.....did not realize I was so fare behind until I started going through the photo files on my computer this weekend :)

So here's your challenge for this week. I was visiting with a friend, and we were discussing favourite brands and patterned paper. 7Gypsies makes me weak in the knees, and I still love some of their older paper. So that's your challenge. Dig out some of your FAVORITE OLDER products, and USE IT! I've been hoarding some of this paper forever, and I still love it. I have more left over, still. lol
Just a quick layout about how I love taking photos...Love those Tim Holtz acrylic pieces. I lifted some of the letters in my title, too for dimension.

We are taking Kbear to see the DOODLEBOPS on Saturday!!! How fun is that going to be (or torturous, depends how you look at it lol)???? And to make it funnier, my sister entered Kbear's art the colouring contest through the Herald and she won tickets! So we are selling the extras.
Should be some good photos (I hope!). I hope she has a good time. I am not sure how she will do with the fact that they are live and not on tv or dvd lol We will see. I will update ya next week :)

Your challenge for this week is to do a handcut title, made from your own handwriting. Now you've seen me do this often before. With a pencil, write out your title, colour it in with a black marker, and cut it out. I won't lie. It is time consuming, but the results are fabulous! Cut out the inside of letters first, and then around the outside. Be sure to change your blade often which is easy, just be careful when breaking off the tip. And I find a glass cutting mat works the best. An old piece of glass from a frame works well. Take your time, and don't let me hear you say you don't like your handwriting. Your future heirs will thank me. :)Here's the layout...And a close up of what I did. lol, you can see my reflection in the clear patterned paper on the left side. Sorry bout that, lol, glad I did my hair that day. Can you see it? It's a game of Where's Ronni instead of Where's Waldo. (sheesh, I need to get out more, lol)And finally, just another shot of some of the details. Easier to read the journalling.
So go on, go make your own title for your next layout.
And again, thanx for all the congrats on my next pubbed layout. If it wasn't for Kari's prompting, and Mel and Tammy's encouragement, I don't know if I would've. But they are some great friends. Love you girls!!
Get to scrappin!
I can not believe it it March 1 already!!!! Where has the past couple of months gone? I had the privilage of putting together the March kit. I hope you enjoy it! You will get 3 projects with this kit. The first is a card - convenient to keep in your card calendar from the January kit (sorry for the blurry photo below and that it is sideways...I am not sure what happened). The 2nd is a layout and the 3rd is a journal and journal jar - complete with over 250 questions included.
Here is a bit of the background to where i was coming from when designing it for you.... This kit was inspired by a gift I received this past Christmas from my Gramz.
About 6 years ago, I made her a journal and journal jar. I gave it to her asking her to pull a question every day or so and to write down her memories in the journal. I wanted to have her hand writing. I wanted to have her memories. I wanted to have a piece of her with me to look back on. Throughout her journey of writing, she would chat to me about it. She said that some of the questions were easy, some were hard. A lot of them made her think way back about the answers while other answers came easily. A few questions brought tears to her eyes with the memories while some brought smiles and laughter.
Around the same time, I also gave a journal and journal jar to my Uncle and Aunt. Again, I wanted to get their stories and memories from my mom’s side of the family. I wanted to have their hand writing. I wanted to have their memories. I wanted to have a piece of them with me to look back on. Shortly after, my uncle was diagnosed with cancer. We lost him 4.5 years ago. He never answered any of the questions or shared his memories – all because he did not like his hand writing – even after my mom told him that wasn’t the point of the jar. I still wish he had written down some answers. I am going to ask my aunt to do one – hopefully she will. I would love to know more about my family, my history, my origins.
Share your history. Share your memories. Share your family. Don’t let it be lost.
