Busy Bee

Last week we all got together at my Dad's house to scrap. My Dad's girlfriend is big into scrapping and we went card crazy! We had a blast and we are doing it again tomorrow! It feels so nice to be out of school and have alittle extra time to relax and do what I love. But I've still been busy but it's a good busy. Saturday we painted my kitchen, living room, hall, and dining room. I'll post pictures soon. We're not quite finished with all the trim and the hallway. Monday we took the youth group to a Water Park. It was soo nice! We all have a great time. This week is VBS and I'm teaching the older girls. The crafts I chose are scrappy crafts of course! ;) Last night we made a paperbag album. Tonight is the altered flipflops and Thursday night is a altered clipboard! LOL
I love how scallops are in style now. They are soo pretty. I also bought the cuttlebug a few weeks ago and I LOVE IT! It embosses soooo pretty! I need more dies but that will come with time. :) I love how it cuts, foam, fabric and felt! IT's just awesome! I got it Creative for $35.00 and they threw in a free embossing folder of my choice. The alpha dies were also on sale for $40.00! This flower and vase is from the Oliva Alpha's which I ordered.
I made this tag using my cousins cricut and I love that thing! I'm trying to save up money so I'll have it when it goes on sale again! I wished Walmart would mark them back down to $100. But they are still $184.00. :( I cut out these flowers with the sizzix die. I've been trying to use up all my scraps on cards. It really helps to cut down on my paper stash.
I love using my sewing machine on paper. I'm kind of getting the bug to sew now and want to try my hand at a small quilt. We'll see. Time permitting. I found a little shop in town that sells BEAUTIFUL fabric. I could buy and collect the fabric because it is soo pretty! :)
And my last card. I am going to put these on my etsy shop. I love etsy. Have a great week!!
