Love'n the Zutter

Hey all, well it has been a while since I have update this thingy. I have been busy, busy, busy with work, preparing for Becca's birthday and of course Scrap - a - Palooza. Ummmmm did you notice that there has been no time for scrapbook'n. :( Time seems to fly by.

Ok, soooooo the title of this post is Love'n the Zutter. I have recently added a new tool to my scraproom. It is the Zutter or Bind It All. It is the most amazing little tool. You can bind almost anything. There are a ton of different chipboard covers, canvas cover, pages, O wires and cover alls.

I used a Little Ones 8x8 Deja Views Tablet ( love these tablets - the have all the paper and embelishments you need to complete a project - there is no hunting and searching for the perfect emblishment) and a Zutter Cover all and of course an O wire.

Ok here is the project hope you like it.

Becca's Invite

My sister and I were hard at work this past Saturday creating the invitation for her daughter, Rebecca's, birthday party. Before we started we decided that we were going to make the flowerpot card but as the evening progressed we ended up with a whole lot of cupcakes.

It was kind of funny because we started out with only 2 cupcakes on the invitation, but it just didn't look right. So, I decided well how can you go wrong with MORE cup cakes. I mean who doesn't love cupcakes, right. In the end we ended up with 7 cupcakes on the top of the invitation. They look adorable. Then it occured to me to ask how many invitations we needed to make. Yeah, well, I guess we need 10. Which doesn't sound like a lot but if you put 7 cupcakes on the top of 10 invitations that is 70 CUPCAKES. Holy cow, that is a lot of cupcakes.

Becca loved the invitation and there is no changing it now. The things we do for love.

Happy National Scrabooking Day

I had a GREAT National Scrapbooking day. I was busy, busy, busy. I spent my day with my daughter, McKenzie, at my favorite Scarpbooking store, Paper Trails. McKenzie made a couple of great cards. She use the CTMH Originals Card Book and some of my paper scraps.

McKenzies Card

I was creating for the WDM Craft Fair, on Saturday. I worked on and completed (surprise, surprise) the following Purse Scrapbook. This is such a cute way to record your memories. It looks great sitting on a coffee table or a book shelf.

To create this one, I used (don't quote me on this) Glitz Gals paper and a variety of cardstock. This is busy paper and a challange for me to work with. I am not crazy about how it turned out but I thought I would post it anyway.

The second one I used a Deja View paper pack. I loved the way this one turned out. It is using some of my favorite colors, blue and brown. The one thing that I love about the Deja View paper packs is it comes with all of the coordinating embelishements. This makes deciding (which can be really hard for me, too many scrapbooking goodies to choose from) really easy.

I have managed to figure out how everyone can post comments now. So feel free to leave a comment. I would love to hear what you think.
My sister and I have been working on a birthday invitation for my neice Rebecca. I am hoping to post some pics of it this week so check back.
