Jacksonbelle goodness and I SCRAPBOOKED...

Happy June!!!!

Can you believe that it is already June...half way through 2010?!!!

Bear with me, I have a ton to share today....first up is my Jacksonbelle card...

Our challenge for June is to use our favorite Jbelle products...easy peasy...surprise, surprise, I'm using October Afternoon...New and Old:

I fussy cut some New October Afternoon and nestled it on a 4.75 x 4.75 inch card. I dehoarded some of my Gmund paper that I picked up at the local Paper Zone shop. Isn't that 'Hello" fun??!!! I recently stocked up on some super EAD Stickerz....these are FAB....great coverage since the Gmund cardstock is so texture-y:)

This also fits the CAS-tastic challenge #05, A Touch of Green.

Hold onto your coffee peeps...I SCRAPBOOKED...

The photo is a self-pic by the boy...he was on a paddleboard....hence the waterdrop on the lens..LOL...I just ADORE this pic of him....soooo CUTE...soooo him. For those that really know my boy, I'm sure that they would agree he is a whipper snapper...he makes me laugh, all-the-time...seriously...the boy has a great sense of humor, although I may be partial:)

The red base is Sassafras {amazing, I know...who knew they did solids?!!!} The ric rac'ish border is Sassy...the yellow panel is October Afternoon and the text panel is Cosmo Cricket...I managed to do a smidge of sewing and of course, I threw some DeNami Design buttons on there too:) The thickers are their valentine's release so I got them 50% off after valentines day {woot woot!}.

I was inspired by the Twisted Sketch #051:

The Twisted Sketches 'twist' is "new"....I'm going to say that I'm 'new' to scrapbooking...it's been literally years....guess, you could call me a born again scrapper:)

I hope that you'll play with us over at Jacksonbelle...

Please check out the other Jbelle gals for inspiration:

Keyword JBE108 for SCS and PCP

Hang in there my peeps...just a couple more things to share:) I promised to do a full reveal on my
PIF goodies...

Here's the dealio...I cannot stand to mass-produce...it seems to literally zap my creativity and I become robotic...no emotion...no joy...so when I decided to design a new card for the PIF peeps I knew that I wanted to keep it CAS:

Each of the cards has a different pattern from October Afternoon...I used the same PTI sentiment because, well, I love it:) Let's see, I didn't keep any of the cards and forgot to measure them or at least write down the measurements but I'm thinking they are 4 x 4...on my favorite, Speckletone Kraft.

I also decided to put a smidge of a RAK in there too...

For those that have been following me for awhile know that I love Fabriano's...well, I also have another brand that I love that is similar called Arturo's. Each of the ladies received a handful of Arturo notecards, a Jenni Bowlin Bingo card and Kaiser Crafts bling...I hope it inspires you to PIF....

For the ladies that joined me in my first PIF Challenge...thank you!!!

Thanks for hanging out with me...I appreciate you stoppin' by...P.S. I'll be back tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. PDT for the Whimsy Haven Blog Hop!!!!!!

  44. Such gorgous cards and layout! I love that woodgrain CS, and how you used a sticker as your sentiment - I hate when you stamp on textured CS and get a grainy image! And the CAS card is so simple and sweet.
    I am the same with mass producing, I get bored so fast!
