Spring is in the Air!

 I had a great day visiting my grandchildren today.  They are so precious to me. 
I took this picture of them about a week ago. 

I love to spend so much time with them it makes it hard to get anything done!
I did manage to get my coupons organized.  I am a coupon junkie.  I hate to pay full price for anything.  I have been so busy lately that I haven't been clipping coupons.  Boy I have noticed a difference!  Tonight I made it my mission to get my coupons in order.  I created a spreadsheet so I can sort by item, brand, expiration date etc..... have I mentioned that I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to being organized.  I really do love to organize closets and shelves and so forth. Strange I know.

Well here we are into our 2nd day of Spring and although it feels a lot more like winter here I managed to get a Spring layout and a card made for my next project for The Scrapbook Page. 

This layout was made with an blue and pink colored CS.  The flowered patterned paper and the bird paper which was cut into a strip are by American Crafts.  The larger flowers were also cut out of the American Crafts line.  The bottom of the page is a strip of ribbon which I threaded through slits that I measured and cut with an Xacto knife.  The letters were cut with Cricut Base Camp Cartridge.  This cartridge is about the only Cricut Cartridge we can use for our challenges at The Scrapbook Page

As before, the patterned paper is by American Crafts.  I sewed in a zig zag stitch with blue thread around the edge to attach it to the green CS.  I made the tag with white cardstock that I matted with pink and then attached a cute pink flower as an added imbellishment.  I wanted this to be a very simple card to show off that cute paper!

Well that's it for now.  Have a creative day!

Craft Room Re-do

I recently decided to move my craft room to a different room in my house.  This turned out to be quite a job. I live in an earth contact...
