HIMCR #159 - Christmas in July! again!

Hi.  This week at HIMCR we all made projects for Christmas.  Again!  We received a digi from Blue Moon Creations so I made this card:

I used DCWV paper, Scrappy Moms sentiment, stickles and ink.

We also received a digi from Digi Digi Doodle.  I made this card:

I hope it looks like the ornament is hung on the tree with Stickle snow.  I also used DCWV paper, Liquid Pearls and Designers Calendar cartridge.

I hope you link a Christmas-y project to HIMCR this week to be entered to win digital images.

From crop (1/3)

I went to a wonderful crop this past weekend.  This was the first time I printed out only pictures I wanted to scrap instead of my usual "print everything in case the computer crashes someday."

During approximately 8 hours I ended up starting 13 layouts!  Whoa!  I didn't finish them all there because I don't bring things that need to dry like Stickles and I forgot things like pens, so I completed some at home the next day.  Still, that was great!

These are all from last summer.  I love when the photy and paper "do all the work' but I think I use a larger variety of my embellishments/supplies at crops rather than at home.

Here is the first batch of layouts:

Bo Bunny paper, ribbon, brads, Liquid Pearls.

 Daisy D and Echo Park paper, ribbon, brads,

 Paper, Thickers

Echo Park paper.

HIMCR #158 - Christmas in July!

Hello!  This week at HIMCR is Christmas in July!  There is a "bloghop" today.

I was very excited to have the motivation to make this layout:

We have done this in my family for years, yet this was the first time anyone took pictures while we were picking out a tree. 

I used DCWV paper, Thickers, a stamp, ink and Liquid Pearls.

I hope you make something for this holiday and link it to HIMCR this week.  Laurie is sponsoring the main giveaway for this "hop.".

They had and continue to have so much fun with all the Legos in the house.

Welcome!  It's another Super Scraps Saturday at HIMCR this week!  I made a layout.

It always feel good to use up my scraps.  The digi is from 'A Day for Daisies.'  I used Paper Studio paper, eyelets and ink.

I hope you use some scraps and post your project to HIMCR this week.  A will will receive 'A Day for Daisies' $12 GC.

While I was coloring the digi, my son made sure the colors matched.

Then he colored some spare prints himself. 

I love how the whole family can participate in this hobby.
