the saturday morning ritual

Hello there folks,

A happy Wed to ya, it's officially summer! Colorado summer weather can be beautiful, the mountains are majestic and some still have a sprinkle of snow.

The scrap page is brought to you from of course, Jenni Bowlin (June 2011) Kit. Now, if you are not convinced that this kit is amazing by the page I made, then I'm not so sure what will ... :) The kit is complete with their new Haven paper line, gorgeous and totally vintage. Lovely kit as always!

So, since my handwriting sucks I rarely journal my pages, I'm just afraid I might ruin it. But a little background about the page ... Scott hates taking pics of me because I'm never satisfied with just one pic, and this is exactly the case with this pic of me. But little did I realize that the wall behind me loan itself to a nice pic of me enjoying my cup o' Joe!

All supplies can be found by clicking on the pic.

Take it easy,
C :)

Hello there peeps,

A happy Fri to ya! I hope you are ready for a great wkend! It's been really nice Colorado weather, nice and sunny and well hiking season is on!!! :)

The card is from the new Jenni Bowlin June kit! Lovely and very vintage! Their new collection Haven is heaven! The colors are very earth tone and lots of floral embellishments to work with! Seriously, this kit is wonderful and whimsical! The card is very simple, all supplies are from the kit, and no sentiment. All card supplies can be found by clicking on the pic.

#1 Dad

hello there peeps,

A card here for Father's Day! It's just around the corner, and I made a few for a couple friends who want some to give out to their dads/husbands. To be honest, I was looking for Father's day card inspiration in the blog-o world and was disappointed to find very few to none! My goodness, no one makes them! What's up with that? I for one struggle to make boyish/manly cards but at least I tried!

So, here's my take on the masculine card, very CAS and tried not to add buttons, or any other embellishment that would be otherwise. Well, all supplies can be found by clicking on the pic!

Loads of Love for DAD!

hello there peeps,

June is for Father's Day! I just realized this a couple days ago :S Switching from girly cards to manly cards is a task for me, guy cards and baby cards are a challenge for me in general. But, this card came fairly easy, simple and guy-ish colors. A little bit of layering and stamping, voila! I used Hero Arts stamps and patterned paper, not much too it. Do you like? Let me know, this would be easy to mass produce if you are handing out many! Click on the pic for complete list of supplies.

Have a great rest of the wk!

Hello the peeps,

Two posts in a row! It's really nice to have time to create and be crafty, really it feels nice! Onto the card, very springy and full of girly colors. Most supplies are from the JBS May & April kits. Lots of layering (you know my style) and bursts of fresh colors. The card would be perfect for a female friend - birthday, thanks, thinking of you .... Well, I really like the card, I hope you do as well! click on the pic for complete list of supplies.

Note: this is a repost, I finally got the Flickr-Blogger link to work!

Have a great wkend!

Hello there ladies,

I've been keeping great news from you for a while, a while back I was contacted by WCS - Write.Click.Scrapbook to join there team! I was delighted to hear they wanted me on their team and that they had even heard about me :) So, here I am on my first scrap DT and I'm excited! If you're not familiar with WCS, it's basically a place where you can go to for inspiration, scrap news, giveaways and connect with other scrappper :) The ladies on the DT are super nice and proud to be among them :)

My first scrap page for them is inspired by "the men in our lives" gallery. As you know it's only me and Scott so I scrapped him. I used the JBS May kit, wonderful colors for a guy scrap :)

Also, WCS turns 2 today, so in honor of that, we all contributed to a mosaic to bid Happy Birthday, how fun! Please stop by for some great giveaways! :)
