Some Exciting News and a "Berry" Cute Box

First I'll share the exciting news since it is the reason I haven't posted anything on my blog in such a long time.
Surprise!! We are welcoming another sweet little miracle into our family!
I've been super sick with this pregnancy so I haven't been on the computer or in the little blue room very often lately.

But, I do have a fun project to share with you from the current UStamp with Dawn and Friends event! A "berry" cute box perfect for summer time gift giving! 

If you'd like to join us at the UStamp Event and receive the tutorial for this project and over 40 other projects click here> KEEP CALM and USTAMP ON!

Scrapbooking Blog Hop - UStamp With Dawn and Friends

Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just checked out Melissa Stout's awesome 12x12 layout. Didn't you just love that she put it on canvas?? Melissa is called the Stamp Doc for a reason. She really knows her stuff and is a FABULOUS Designer! She always creates something AMAZING for UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! events!!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.

Scrapbooking is my FAVORITE paper craft, my first love! I enjoy giving albums as gifts and creating them with my stamp club group. The only problem, I never know how many photo spots to include or if they are using horizontal or vertical photos. With the type of mini album I designed it is easy to create as a gift or with a group. Since you are just making the covers and title page tags there is so much freedom and versatility for how many photos you can include and horizontal and vertical are no longer a problem!

Here's a peek at a few of the title page tags inside the album!

I used around 100 wallet size photos in mine! 
When my husband saw it he said, "I thought this was a MINI album!" I replied, "A mini album that can tell the WHOLE story!" I wanted something that wasn't going to limit the memories I could include and this turned out perfectly! I hope you enjoy!

As a Special Thank You for stopping by my blog I am giving away BLOG CANDY!!
Please leave a comment about my project to be entered for a chance to win a dynomite prize of 12 inches of ALL the BRAND NEW Stampin' Up! RIBBONS!!

Cool Cards With Cool Moves!

I was so excited to be asked to join another UStamp with Dawn and Friends event! The theme this time...Cards With Cool Moves. This was super fun for me as I haven't made many cards with all the fun action going on. 

This was my first set. I knew I wanted to have the sun pop up from behind the clouds. Love how it turned out!

This was set number two. I loved my punch art love bug so I wanted to figure out a way to make it pop off the card. Awesome!!

So be sure to head over to UStamp with Dawn and Friends to sign up and join us for the Cards With Cool Moves to get the tutorials for these and many, many more!! Click here > Cards With Cool Moves.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you are enjoying spring and have a wonderful Easter!
