Finally posting these – I know, bad blogger lately….

Seriously, Kirkland Signature toilet paper – who knew?

The above LOs feature several of the Chatterbox Fabulous collection paper and embellishments that are available at Dreamer.

And the above LO features papers from the We R Memory Keepers Nonsense collection from the Dreamer Store.  Oh, and my friend Mara’s Blythe doll – isn’t she great?


So busy lately…but good news too.

I played at ScrapFreak.com last month – my friend, Jessica, is on the DT there.  I entered their GDT contest for June and I’m so excited that my LO was chosen and I’m guest designing for ScrapFreak this month.

Here’s the LO I entered – they theme was about moms.

I’m working on my LOs for ScrapFreak and will reveal those all in one post at the end of the month here.  Of course, if you want to check them out now – pop in a Scrap Freak and visit the gallery.

My first publication with Creating Keepsakes and I’m so happy with the 2-page spread.  It’s a great pub filled with inspiring LOs – be sure to check it out.

Here’s a LO using the new SEI Bridgeport collection…

And I used the leftover scraps to make a few cards.

And a LO using My Mind’s Eye new Bloom & Grow collection…

And Scrap Chic Boutique has been getting in lots of new product – including the new MLS.  Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.


May DT Reveal @ ScrapbookDreamer.com May 3, 2009

Filed under: ScrapbookDreamer.com — Kathi @ 3:09 pm

The reveals are underway at ScrapbookDreamer.com.  I’ve had a fabulous time designing this month.

One Fine Day – my mom on the verge of turning 13 in Fall 1944.

Supplies:  Pattern Paper: Making Memories (background die cut),  Lily Bee Designs (background and smaller die cut shaped papers); Alphas: American Crafts Vinyl Thickers; Die Cut Frame/Photo Corner: Lily Bee Designs; Rub-Ons: October Afternoon; Flowers: Deja Views (fabric), Buttons Galore & More (felt), American Crafts (paper), Maya Road (sheer); Rhinestones: Prima; Other: Fancy Pants Stick Pin, Trim, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists; Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts

Designer Notes:  There was plenty of coordinated paper once I removed the Lily Bee die cuts from the sheet, so I used that space to punch butterflies for my LO.


She Achieved – my mom high school graduation photo taken in the Fall of 1948 and she graduated in June 1949.

I found the original stone from her HS class ring in the bottom of a cardboard box of her stuff, so I used it for a flower center.

Supplies:  Cardstock: Archivers; Pattern Paper: Daisy D’s; Alphas: Making Memories; Flowers: Prima; Stickers: Stampendous; Epoxy: K&Company Life’s Journey; Pearls: Kaiser Craft; Ink: Clearsnap; Punch: Stampin’ Up Font: Times New Roman; Other Trim; Gemstone from her class ring

Designer Notes: If you have emphemera to include and don’t want to alter it in any way, then scan it to use on your LO like I did. I attached the original invitation in an envelope on the back of my LO. Because the invitation text is a very ornate script, I kept my title and journaling fonts simple. Of special note, my mom had replaced the gemstone in her class ring at some point, and I had found the original gemstone loose in the bottom of a cardboard box of her stuff, so I used it as a flower center.


I Love Roses – two roses in my garden.

Supplies: Pattern Paper: Basic Grey; Alphas: American Crafts Foam Thickers; Journal Page: Making Memories; Stickers: Stampendous; Pearls/Rhinestones: Kaiser Craft; Velvet Flower: Maya Road; Woven Label: Jo-Ann Stores; Flocked Lace: We Are Memory Keepers; Other: Chipboard Glitter Heart, trim, Offray Ribbon Roses, DMC Embroidery Floss

And the gallery is just full of inspiration, so come chat with us and be inspired!
