That leads me to think what is my style? I like bold clear prints in neutral colors. I don't like shades that are too bright like Whooligans. I also don't like a very busy background page. I also don't like alot of pink or girly shades like Kissing Booth. I like simple and basic embellishments that don't draw attention away from the photos. I like streamlined multi-photo layouts where the focus is on the pictures not the artwork.
Here's some examples from my old layouts

Sorting through some old files and found this layout I entered in a challenge at 52 sketches last year. It's so simple and Anthony is so adorable (he's going to kill me when he grows up). I'm going to have to try using this sketch again. Maybe with those sea lion pics I've been trying to scrap for 6 months.

Still cleaning house so I haven't done any crafting of my own. In sorting through my email though I came across Manda's blog and just wanted to give her a shout-out. I don't know about you but I struggle constantly trying to figure out what to do with scraps. She has some great ideas how to use those little edges or scraps that I would normally throw out. Since organizing my scraps is on my to-do list I'm definitely going to keep her projects in mind. Just love this layout of hers. Go check out her blog
Do you have any new ideas on what to do with scraps?

When you check out from CropChocolate, there is the option to add an item called "Hot Chocolate". It's a grab bag for $2.49 and worth at least $5 (we've all decided it's typically more than that!)
Trying to mass organize and purge my scrapping supplies
Got the stickers finished today. Page kits and paper are next.
Right now with so many supplies its a bit overwhelming to find the time and space to scrap.
Hoping to find a new crop spot in the city.

I'm also doing a purge of both craft items and books to a) make space and b) to try to supplement some of the income loss.
Check out my ebay and etsy at http://myworld.ebay.com/galaxy1979/ and http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6954824 to see some of the items I have for sale. The scrappy items that are not posted in the next day from the list below will then be added to ebay.
Just thought I'd ask you first and see if I can save myself the hassle of ebay. Trying to make enough so that I can supplement the loss in pay and still do a couple fun things I had planned. Unless it says otherwise the items are brand new. Shipping is based on zip code. I cant get to the regular PO right now so sorry but I can't do international shipping. Let me know if you need a photo. I've tried to find links to items since I cant attach photos here.

I didn't sell a single card this Valentine's Day and I have no clue why. I'm open to suggestions on how to improve my etsy shop so go take a look here and honestly tell me what you think. What would sell? What cards do you think I should make next? What style?
At least most of my Valentines Day cards were actually love cards so that means I can pass them on to Operation Write Home to be used by soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan. Hoping to stamp them and send them on their way today.
PS My followers are growing so expect a surprise drawing of a variety of paper, stickers, embellishments and more once I hit 50. So invite folks to come follow me

I promise to make a handcrafted item in 2011 & mail to the FIRST 5 people who comment that they would like to join in, only asking in return that you post this on your blog and offer 5 people something you make by hand and mail to them this year.
Sounds easy enough. The bestest part is I get THE WHOLE YEAR to make something. That's, like, forever, right? In my world it is. You watch, it will be Dec 30th and I'll be scrambling. :/
So if you'd like to play, just comment and let me know!

I got this fun die-cut poem from a swap and I knew I had to use it for a card. The pattern paper has a sticthed design and then I used a needle and some fiber to give the die-cut also a stitched feel as well. The background paper is DCWV. I don't remember who the accent is piece is by.
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
When I saw the DCWV Rockstar mat stack this sheet just said Valentine's Day to me. It took me forever to find embellishments that worked with it without overpowering it. I chose a contrasting light pink in two different shades for a Cricut die-cut and a glittered flower from K & Co.
All of this is put together on a scalloped A2 cardstock base.
This card meets the Paper Variety pink and black challenge.
To purchase this card go to my etsy site

I combined a couple of sketches and came up with this fun card. The background is made from a lightweight paper with cuttlebug embossing.
This card made the requirements for The House that Stamps Built and Get Sketchy
Glitterbabes put out a cute sketch this week
Here's my twist on it (note the glittered paper used on the patterned strip)
This card also meets the Pollycraft "New Things" challenge. The stickers are new from a package that I FINALLY opened from last Valentine's Day.
As well as Lexi's Creation's "Say It with Love" Challenge and the Top Tip Tuesday "Anything Goes" challenge
I honestly don't remember who made the patterned papers but the sticker is S.E.I. (I think). The die-cut hearts are all cut from Cricut with the George cartridge.
