Newest Creation for The Scrappy Gourmet!

Cherish These Moments!
This is my latest project created for The Scrappy Gourmet, which will be the featured item in September. I am sharing just a few of the pages from inside the chipboard album. I used pregnancy photos of my niece, but this kit could also be used for wedding or any other "cherished memories" you want to scrapbook. Please look for this kit at http://www.thescrappygourmet.com/.




I created the entire album, gift bag, and two cards that all coordinate together.






This is the inside cover, and features my cute great-niece, Kendal.














I hope you like it! Have a good night!

Gift ideas!



The jar was purchased from Hobby Lobby. I added Fancy Pants rub-ons and accented with gems to jazz it up. These were gifts for my daughter's preschool teachers. Insde the jar is homemade "lotion potion", as Hope calls it.

Here is the recipe: 2 bottles of baby lotion, 2-8oz jars of Vitamin E cream, and one small jar of Vaseline. Combine all the ingredients, and use a mixer to make a nice smooth lotion consistency.

It is a great project to do with kids.


I used gift bags from the dollar store (gotta love that place)! I used scraps of Fancy Pants pattern paper, left over die cuts, gems flowers, etc. to jazz up the bags as well.


Overall, this was a very affordable gift, and would also make great gifts for grandma's, aunts, and friends! Enjoy!

Check out my new scrapping space!!!


I haven't done so good posting on my blog since I created it last fall, but I hope to do a little better. A lot of changes have gone on in my life! I got a new job with The Barrent Group as an Analyst and Marketing Assistant. I love it, because I get to do a mixture of analytical thinking and creative work too. It has helped me improve my technical knowledge. I am also in charge of keeping the website (http://www.barrentgroup.com/) up to date. It keeps me on my toes!


I have also been busy scrapbooking too, and I will try and share some of my projects from the past few months over the next few days/weeks as time allows.


Now for the best part! Joe got a really good deal on some office furniture, and I got it for my scrapbook room. It is awesome! I am still working on getting things organized, but am loving how things are working out. It is going to be so much more functional.
