Ledger paper...

It can be hard to find in times like these but yesterday I was browsing and thought I'd google ledger paper and here my friends is what I found...

Free ledger paper

I thought it would be pretty cool to print these out on some plain cardstock- or even patterned paper. I'm sure they would come out pretty cool.
I am sure you could always make your own with excel but how esy is it to simply print them out!

I love ledger paper with grids, calendar, memo, etc designs and just can't wait for Imagination Project to release their Office Supplied Project Essentials line.

This is an egg painting that my ds brought home for me last week- So sweet!!! TFL! :>)

Is it Friday Yet?

I have had company here for the past week. First we had my mom here for almost a week. Now my sister and her kids are visiting for three days.Good thing they got a hotel! It's been hectic. My kids have been sick since Saturday and I'm trying to keep them...anything but cranky. It's been tough. On Monday Dh had his wisdom tooth pulled. Today he had to leave for work out of town. Poor guy- I couldn't do what he does. What a man!

Here is a LO I did about my daughter and her love for books. She has so many books. It seems like I buy more than she actually reads- but it's all in the name of reading. Who could say no to buying a book for their child? Not I!

I've been a scrappin' fool

For me getting more than 2 LO's a week completed is a huge accomplishment. I'm am normally a very slow scrapper.
Well this past week I actually got so much done and I feel like there is more that I want to get busy with here today.

This is me and my dear son- what could be better than a chance to capture a sweet kiss like this. Gosh, this pic makes me melt!

I got busy here with more of my basic gray stash. I'm seriously trying to use up the older paper lines so that I can justify opening up my new basic grey paper....I'm gettin' there!

I will be adding more pics soon, just as soon as I find the cord to my camera! Geesh, you'd think I'd be on top of that kind of stuff!

::Puppy Love::&::My Children Album::

Happy Monday "Peeps"! I have been wanting to buy Easter goodies so badly for my kiddos. I am holding back and waiting one more week. Then I will break free. Have you started yet? I think I want a Cadbury Egg real bad (for me)- but nope- I'm on a healthy food diet. And I am promising myself I will be good!

I had a great time making this layout. I used some slamin' product here. I puled out the Basic Grey Fruitcake. I think this is my first time using a full sheet of paper from this collection. I must say, I love it! I also used some diecuts I've had in my stash anda You Are jornaling die cut. The bird I got a bit creative with, covered in Kraft CS and used a Hambly Studios rub on and accented that with some White gelly roll pen.I also stamped a few stars with my Poppy Ink star stamp from the Storytime Set. And used some BG ribbon nd AC monograms letter stickers.
Fun Fun Fun! Not to mention how sweet my son looks with his puppy. I bought this for him for his 1st Valentines and now, four years later, he is still lovin' that puppy.

The journaling reads:
Despite the fact that he's been given a few different names over the years and you have left him behind a few times, he's your puppy love- jaden 2007


Here is a bit of an album I have in the works. I have so many projects in the making- albums waiting for new photos to be taken and scrapped.
This one is for my children, hence the title. It's nice to have one that's not 12 X 12.

The title is MM letter stickers and Hambly Studios rub onsfor the wings. The frame is made from a Poppy Ink stamp.

Here I used some Lil Davis- Jenni Bowlin product that I found for a buck at Big Lots. I was so happy to find these goodies! Who would've thought?
The "2" is a Ki Memories cookie cutter Letter sticker, the ribbon is from Old Navy!

Title is Lil Davis- Jenni Bowlin, tag is Creative Imaginations, Magic Mesh and a stamp from Walmart- checkers. Ink is Rubber Stampede.

PP (stripes) are Provo Craft Rob & Bob Studios, stars are from Poppy Ink stmaps, leather stitched border is Lil Davis- Jenni Bowlin and the buckle is something from Big Lots too. The letter stickers are AC.

I am loving this album. I picked this up at Big Lots also for only $4!

TFL! :)
I misss Poppy Ink- I can't wait until the boards sre back up! I hope Heather is having a great time out of town! If you are a PInker, please leave a comment so I can peek in on what you've been up to! The 22nd seems so far away! I usually read blogs through sig lines so now I'm lost!

I Love Blueprint magazine!

I am always finding really great goodies in this magazine. Today I was flipping through and found this company called start here.

Love the concept they have thought of - love the pockets- love the tabs- love the lined, grid, and plain paper...all of it and the best part is that once you fill it up you can just buy another notebook and connect them together. Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
Check it out! I bought the three level, both colr sets of library pockets, and one set of the tabs. I can't wait to get it and start filling it with all kinds of good schtuff.

I also went on a search for these cool vinyl frames to store pages in. THey come in close to perfect sizes to store layouts in or to stick inspiration peices in for later use. You can hold a group of them together with a ring or ribbon I suppose. I really think they look great to hold wall art. We have a hallway that we call "Jaden's Wall of Fame" which is covered in his art from school. I think it would look great to hang what we can in these "job jackets" as seen {HERE} in Blueprint magazine.

2 Posts in 1 Day!!!

I'm smokin' today!
And it has everything to do with this paper!

seriously, this layout took less than a half hour to make. I an stoked about this! I will have to order the westminster line too :) teehee!

The science project- don't try this at home...

I had so much fun creating this mini tag album for my son.
All of the patterned paper is by Basic Grey. I figured I should use up the old before I get the new! I also used my new Fancypants Designs journaling stamps and the Storytime stamps from Poppy Ink. I also used my 7G naked stamp throughout and some things by ColorBok.
On page 6 I used a few Hambly Studios rubons- I had to dip into that stash!

On Sunday my daughter decided to do a science experiment with our monitor. Her teacher had warned them about puttin gmagnets near the screen. So yeah, she tried it to see if it was really true. So just in case you were wondering, it is true. The magnet left a dark blotch right on the screen. Try editing photos like that! lol

I must say she did benefit me in all of this as I"v ebeen coveting the idea of a new LCD monitor. Last night DH ordered a 19" HP widescreen and we did the 2 day shipping so we should have it by Friday! WooHoo! I must let her teacher know about this- and yes, dd has been banned from the computer for a couple of weeks. It was difficult for me to be upset about it as I really wanted to replace the beast machine we have- and well, I understand her curiosity too. So now we all know!

There is one more thing I want to share but I will save that for another post....When I titled this blog, I knew I'd be manifesting some scrappy things that all of you and myself would be drewling over. Manufacturers have been so good to us this year. So much yummy deliciousness that is so hard to resist!

A delicious obsession

I have been shopping. Lots and lots of shopping. (insert UBER excited smilie here)
See the scary thing is not how much I am accumulating, but how much fear I have of actually cutting these things- I love my scissors and paper more than any other material items I own but I just cannot get myself to bring the two together.
Soon enough though, they must join, one in each hand, to create perfect harmony...

Here is a peek into my lovely new scrap stash...

As you can see, I have lots to play with and hopefully it will keep me satisfied for a while. And the cherry on top is I have clear stamps on the way from Poppy Ink. If I remember correctly, I ordered Bling (which is a chandelier), Oh Deer (wait til you see this darling stamp!) Make A WIsh (dandelions set) and Stortime (way too cute). Story time I actually bought from another member when she realized that she had it already- so that was pure luck. I will have to post a message here for the next time PI has the Pretty Little Stamp Shop open. I believe it will be open again in May.
