Creating Keepsakes has two new special issues out, and I have one of each to give away! The first one is Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Stamps & Ink, which is filled with lots of creative ideas for using stamps. This issue is perfect for experienced stampers and also for novice stampers like me who own a gazillion stamps but never know what to do with them.
Next up is Scrapbooking Everyday Memories. It's brimming with beautiful and inspiring layouts.
"Red Light, Green Light," a game my girls and I like to play in our front yard:
Creating a mosaic tile counter in our bathroom (all by my very own self!!):
CK Store: CKDT15 (this is good for 15% off all items in the store, and it expires 12/20/2010).
Did somebody say SHOE TEMPLATE? Thank you for all the nice comments! And because so many people have expressed an interest in getting a template, I'm working on transferring my shoe "parts" (heel, sole, upper and insert) to a pdf template that you'll be able to download and print. I'm more than happy to share it with everyone! I'll be posting it here on my blog when it's done. The tricky part is that while creating the shoe, I kept tweaking the design and shape of the different shoe parts, so I have lots of different scraps and now I'm not quite sure which one I used on the final version. But don't worry . . . I'll figure it out! I'm also going to create a little tutorial with pictures so that you can see the steps. I'm hoping to post the template and tutorial here on my blog in the coming week, so check back!! And since a lot of you came here via CK's Facebook page, we'll also link it up there when it's posted on my blog.
Lastly, my life has still been consumed with this remodeling project, but we are 90% finished and I'm so HAPPY with how it looks!! Here's a look at what my kitchen looked like about a week ago (the first picture shows the empty kitchen with the new floors, and the second pictures show the cabinets and the countertop):
Thankfully we've had a functional kitchen now for almost a week, and there are only a few little details to finish up (they're coming tomorrow to finish the molding and a small countertop). Then Monday they start painting. I get my scraproom painted too. . . yay! I will definitely post the "after" pictures when it's all done.
