Bridal Shower Cake

Today is my cousin's bridal shower, but sadly it is too far away for me to attend since I will also be traveling for the wedding. I sent her a towel cake with her choice of towels and a matching card. She is living in Alberta, Canada so the top of the cake has a cut out of the province behind the bride and groom. I tried to match her wedding colors - coral, pink and mint green. This was so much fun to put together. The best part was stumbling across a mint green spatula!

Here is one of the layouts I completed on my scrap weekend. It seems there is a lot of pink and blue in my stash right now and I like that combo for winter scenes.

Thank You Card

Here are the quick Thank You cards I sent out to thank people for the awesome birthday wishes and gifts. My theme was pink, black and white so these were a perfect match to the fun decor.

Jar Cards

Jar stamps seem to be super popular right now. You can fill them with tiny image stamps. I was inspired to cut jars from my Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge and see what I could fill them with. Here are a few of my designs.

Diaper Cake

Just wanted to share a quick picture of the diaper cake I made for my friend's shower. This one is super simple, but I didn't have much time to prepare.

Scrap Retreat

Last fall I was lucky enough to attend a Scrap-A-Way retreat. It was my first overnight away from my baby girl, my first 48 hours where I could just focus on being crafty. It was AWESOME! I immediately signed up for another which happened to be this past weekend. This time I went for 72 hours. I was able to complete a 20 page 8x8 album, 7 - 12x12 layouts and 2 cards. I will be sharing them throughout the rest of the month. Here are a few pages from my adventure.

Scrapbook Territory Haul

While I was in the Bay area, I was lucky enough to take a quick trip to Scrapbook Territory! This is an amazing place. Every single scrapbook item you could imagine and so many surprises I would never think of. I had to keep my spending in check, but here's my haul. So excited by all the fun paper patterns.
