Chipboard Coaster Books

Ok, so I encouraged The Nook to order a massive amount of these chipboard coasters. I had such FUN playing with them the other night! Here is my creation.

I used So Saffron to ink the front, then stamped the Big Blossom (Sell-A-Bration set) on the cover with Rose Red ink. Each page is inked with So Saffron on front, and Rose Red on the back. I have some cool white eyelash/fun fur that I ran a strand thru So Saffron, and a strand thru Rose Red in order to dye them to match. I used So Saffron cardstock to make the binding. Each page is a coaster, not paper. I will post instructions later... for now, have a peek! :)

Amazing Anniversary Contest!!

At The Scrapping Nook, this amazing contest... is where to go. It's going to be fantastic!! The ladies are so wonderful at the Nook (ok, so is the owners nephew who works there!), the forum ladies are fun to hang and chat with... and it's a place to come for great ideas, great fellowship and mostly GREAT PRICING!!! :D

So, now that I've figured out my login and my password, Ihope to update this blog on a regular basis. :) I'm enjoying reading other blogs out here, and thought it is high time to start my own.

A little about me... I'm a SAHM (stay at home mom) who LOVES being home with her kids. I am wife to Mike (9 years this April 4th!), and he is the BEST husband a woman could ask for! :) We have three wonderful children... Julie-Anna (aka JA) is 6.5, Zachary is going to be 4 in less than 2 weeks, and Sophia is almost 2.5. They are a challenge, but I love them more every day :)

I am also a scrapbooker. I have been doing it for years (and long before I knew that was what I was doing, I was doing it!). I'm trying to use up all my stash of stuff, as new stuff keeps rolling into the stores and jumps into my hands begging for me to take it home! LOL! I'm doing alright with using my stuff... I want to have some challenges here on my blog, to encourage YOU to use your stuff too!

I'm a rubber stamper. I have made cards and such for a long time. In June of 2003 I took it to a new level and joined the Stampin' Up! family! It's great to earn a little spending money and not tax the family budget with my supply habit ;) I love doing it. I've got clubs, and classes, crops and events. It keeps me just busy enough. I'm hosting an all day crop on April 21st 9-5 at the Real Canadian Superstore in St. Catharines. I've got a Mystery Hostess night planned for February 22nd (thursday), and classes in the works!

So, stop by... let me know you came!

Have a wonderful day :)
