Pemberley WOTG

Well, I had a couple of days of good production.  I completed four two-page layouts during the snow storm and before we lost power.  We have been without power for three days now so I finally broke down and took the grand kids to a hotel where there is power and an indoor pool!  They are happy campers and I am wishing I would have brought my scrapping supplies with me!

Here is a picture of the last Workshop on the Go I was able to complete before we lost power.
This is from the Pemberly Workshop On The Go.  The instructions for the layout were for a sister, but since I hadn't scrap booked my daughter's Naval Junior ROTC Ball pictures I decided to go with that.  Although she has been to many high school formals, this was her first Naval Ball.  Here she is pictured with her date and her cousin, Matt.  I love how this layout turned out.  The pictures really show her personality of being the fun loving jokester.  She had a wonderful time at the ball and now that memory is captured forever here.

I am hoping that our power comes on soon so I can get back home and work on some more layouts!

What a productive day!

I guess there is something good about having so much snow!  I have been creating since about 9:00 this morning.  I have been able to finish two 2-page layouts using new paper from CTMH that will be available February 1st in the Spring/Summer Idea Book.

This first layout is made with the Footloose Workshop On The Go.  I used pictures from my daughter's trip to Montana last summer. 
The second layout is made using the new Cruisin' Workshop On The Go. Again the pictures are from my daugher's family vacation last summer to Montana.
Of course, now she is begging me to let her have both of these layouts!  I say "Make your own! It is easy!"  Get your own Workshop On The Go on February 1st!

Two new cards!

I feel so accomplished today! I was actually able to complete two cards today that we will be making at our card club next week.  This first card was inspired by sister CTMH Consultant, Maureen O'Sullivan.  I just love how it turned out.  I used Elemental paper pack, AP cartridge, Desert Sand, and Pacifica Inks.

The second card I found in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book.  You can also find the pattern in the Wishes Card Confidence how-to book on page 81.  I used Cocoa card stock as the base and Sonoma paper pack.  I stamped the image in Cocoa ink and the sentiment in Smokey Plum ink.  The two hearts are stamped in Smokey Plum and Petal.
Sorry that the picture is so dark, I didn't realize how dark the room had gotten!  But, I think you get the main idea.

Christmas Layout

I know that it has been a long time since I updated my blog.  My New Year's resolution is to be more diligent when it comes to keeping up on here.  So here is my first post of the new year!

I used wonderland paper pack from CTMH and the Reflections how-to book also from CTMH.  The left side of the layout is called Title Topper-- Pieced Together on page 16 and the right side is called Sidebar--Original on page 40, but I rotated the layout a quarter turn clock-wise.  The "Family" letter was cut out on White Daisy cardstock on the Cricut using the Winter Wonderland cartridge.  "Christmas" was cut out using the "Phrases" cartridge.  Shadow fonts were cut out in Chocolate cardstock.

The family had a great time together and everyone was very happy!  I am glad that the new year has started and I am setting some specific goals.  I will keep you posted on those as the days go by.

Thanks for looking!
