Rainy Days

Sometimes there is nothing better than a rainy day. I get so much done, like cleaning and cooking and reading...and scrapping of course. Got a new Cricut Cartridge called Stretch Your Imagination...it is WONDERFUL! So many different options, and it's great for card making, which is what I've worked on today.

I'm adding a scrapbook layout I did last Fall. Today looked like Autumn, I'm in total denial that Summer is almost over. This page reminds me of why Fall's not so bad. Enjoy.

I've been trying to get a little creative lately. It's so hard for me to stay inside the house long enough to be a productive scrapper in the summer. My thing this summer has been the mini book/album. I feel like I really accomplish a lot quickly...and on a smaller scale it's easier to let the creative juices flow. I can usually do a mini album with my paper scraps I keep that some would probably consider trash. Never throw away your scrap paper! Assign it a special place, just because it's not a perfect piece of paper doesn't mean it can't be very useful. Here are two albums I've finished lately. The first was a mini chipboard album. I painted it and sprinkled the paint with Doodlebug glitter before it dried. Perfect! It's titled "Summer 8". I figured since it was 2008 I would document my 8 favorite summer hobbies this summer. My next album is "Prince Jake". It is a clearscraps album. I adore them! I like using double sided paper and gluing it (with clear glue) to the underside of the album page. This album I decided to put the pics on the underside also. Very 3D. This album is for my little Jack Russell Jake. I saw a mini crown album for a little girl that was adorable, but I don't have kids! So I decided to make it a Prince Jake album:) Enjoy.
