Willow Traders Blog Hop Inspiring Me

I am glad to join the Willow Traders Blog Hop again this weekend. It really inspires me to scrap and make things - even with school underway. Hope you enjoy my cards this weekend!
One thing I am struggling with is how best to photograph my cards. I am still working on it!
The above card uses the Martha Stewart craft punch. I got the idea from Renee Lamb's blog -

A great weekend is coming up!

Well, it looks like we sold our house and have one to buy! We are lucky in this market to have sold our townhouse, and hope everything works out. Cross your fingers for us.

Now, on to the scrappy stuff. Here is a new project for this weekend. A little departure for me, since I usually post cards. I made this 12 x 12 page from the Stampin Up set A Season of Friendship. I plan to frame it and give it to a friend for Christmas.

Thanks for looking!

School Begins on Monday

Well, summer had to come to an end sometime, and I guess this is it. Although I love teaching, I sure like spending extra time with my own kiddos during the summer. August is always a tough time for me getting everybody back on schedule and spending more time on school work and a LOT less time on scrapbooking. I'd sure love to have a job where someone would pay me to make scrapbook things : )
Anyway, on to this past week's creations. Hope you enjoy them!

See ya next week!

Another Weekend!

This weekend, I'd like to feature a couple of cards I made along with what I like to call a "card purse." One of my student's father died last spring and there is a benefit for her family coming up soon. I decided to make something for the silent auction.

I got this idea from Paper Crafts magazine a couple of years ago. I put 10 cards in each card purse. I hope you like them!

Here are a couple of cards that I am putting in the card purses.

Hope you enjoy the weekend! (Also - welcome to the Willow Traders Blog Hoppers!
