Noel Mignon Spooky Camp Challenge

When playing in the Noel Mignon Camp a few weeks ago we were challenged to put together a Spooky project (as in sitting around the campfire telling scary stories). Well, I again dug through some very OLD photos and got them put onto a page - YIPPIEE!!

These photos are from 1989 of my daughter on Halloween. I was not a scrapbooker at that time so I sure do have a lot of catching up to do. But I don't mind, this really brings back the memories for sure.

Teacher Gift using Printable from Jennifer McGuire

Hello Again,

Well this week was back to school for my son and I saw an awesome free printable at Jennifer McGuires site; http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2013/08/free-printable-teacher-cards.html

I decided to make up 3 of each of the examples for my sons teacher along with the card that I had made for DCWV August sketch challenge.



I know teachers can always use a notecard so I honestly thought this would be a useful gift.


And here is my handsome boy with his new 5th grade teacher.

Heat Transfer Vinyl

Hello Again,

Some friends and I are going to be participating in a Pretty Muddy run on Saturday, September 7th. I wanted to create something for our team shirts and came up with the following:

I used the Feeling Groovy cricut cartridge for the font and welded it all together. The silver glitter heat transfer vinyl in from H&H Sign Supply.

Well not only do we have a bunch of moms participating, but one of the daughters wanted to run to so I added this for her:

I used the same font for the additional words.

Blessings, Jenny
(I will add pictures of us all muddy when we wear these!)

Paper Crafts Magazine & October Afternoon

Hello Friends,
Today was back to school day in my house and after I did some chores and ran to the store I used some free time to create some cards.

Well, when I got my hot little hands on the new issue of Paper Crafts magazine a card on the cover really caught my eye - the reason -- I had all supplies on hand to replicate it. So please, by no means is this an original design. The magazine gives credit to Mary Jo Johnston (so thanks for the inspiration cuteness Mary Jo!!)

Here are my cards:





The background paper, brads and cute postcards are from October Afternoons Witch Hazel line. The ribbon is from Michaels Celebrate It line and was in my stash. I also used some Glitter Glaze to add some sparkles on the postcards from My Favorite Things. 

Hope you enjoy these!

Blessings, Jenny

Noel Mignon Summer Camp - Smore Challenge

A week ago the Noel Mignon Facebook group hosted a Summer Camp - each day several challenges were listed for you to partake in. They assigned all who said they would like to play and broke us up into 3 teams (Firecrackers, Dynamite and Shooting Stars). I was on the Dynamite team and we won for most team participation! It really was a lot of fun and it certainly helped to inspire me and to get more pictures onto some pages.

I put this layout together for the Smores Challenge - it was to use lots of layers...like you were building a smore:

I used a Noel Mignon kit for my paper and embellishments, a Pink Paislee stamp and some washi tape. Love these pictures of my DS and his cousins from this past 4th of July.

Noel Mignon August Sketch

Hello Again,

I have another layout to share with you today. This was completed using the Noel Mignon July scrapbook kit:

The paper line is from Simple Stories. This is my son and 2 of his cousins in 2011 when we took a short trip to Michigan. They were playing outside and the pictures so reminded me of kids playing ring around the rosie - which is where I got my Title of All Fall Down.

I just love these kids and documenting the memories!

Blessings, Jenny

DCWV August Sketch Challenge

Hello Again,
Believe it or not, I have been crafting I just have not taken the time to update the old blog here.

I have been trying to keep up with the DCWV Sketch Challenges each month and the sketch for August was no exception. I created for both the Scrapbook Sketch as well as the Card Sketch.

For the Layout Sketch, I used the Citrus Stack. This stack has such bright and fun colors it was just perfect to use for these pictures of my daughter:

These pictures were taken when my sweet daughter Elizabeth there was just finishing up kindergarten. Well, this past summer she just turned '21'!! Where does the time go? I did not scrapbook when my girls were younger so I have a whole LOT of pictures to catch up on and with the sketch challenges that DCWV puts out each month, it sure helps  me to get these pictures on some pages.

The second sketch was for a card layout and I used the 6x6 Everyday stack to make a back to school card:

The stamp is from Pink By Design School is Cool set and I thought it worked perfectly with this card. This year my DS begins school on Monday, August 26th and for the first time that I can remember they will have a full day so I think I am going to sneak this into his lunch.

I hope you enjoyed my projects and make sure you check out the Sketch Challenges on DCWV - you still have time to enter for August!

Blessings, Jenny
