Episode #426 ~ "Lil' Pumpkin" Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

  I hope this video finds you all happy & healthy... I am sending a care package to our daughter who is away at college & i wanted to include a fall card for her so she could set it on her desk. I hadn't used this darling My Favorite Things stamp set yet, so I thought this would be the perfect time! It is soooo stinkin' adorable!!! I love to color with my topic markers, as I find it very relaxing.

  Fall is one of my most favorite times of the year, I love the crisp air, hayrides & the beautiful trees as they begin to change color.

  Thanks for watching my video & if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask...







Happy Fall Ya'll,

Episode #425- Gale's Been Shopping Part 2- $2 Grab Bag



Happy Friday crafty friends,

  Just thought I would share with you the fun items I was lucky enough to receive in the $2 Grab Bag that I picked up at Michaels the other day. What a pleasant surprise & it had provided some fun items to add to my gift-aways, which I just love to do!!!

  My scrubby & I will begin the process of knocking out a wall downstairs to put french doors in leading into my craft room/beauty studio tomorrow & I am super excited! I will post pictures as we progress & then of course when it is all finished. I really just want to get it done & get back to crafting & enjoying watching all of your videos as well.

  Have a relaxing weekend & I hope you are able to squeeze some time in for yourself & doing what you love.



Big squishy hugs,

Episode #425- Gale's Been Shopping!

Hello Everyone,

  I have been uber busy with our cross country move back to Illinois. We love our new house & are getting settled in quickly... I do not have a craft room in this house (yet). But my sweet scrubby is going to be building a craft room / Mary Kay Beauty Studio for me next week - yippee!!! I am soooo excited!

  To sooth my lack of ability to scrap & stamp right now, I have been shopping up a storm. Today I stopped in at Michael's & they had some really great deals. I found some awesome goodies for 99cents & even got a $2 grab bag.

  I am seriously hooked on the Project Life Scrapbooking system so, these 3x4 card packs are so cute & even better when they are on sale for $1.99! I picked up lot's & I am anxious to sit down & spend some time doing what I love. Check out your local store if you are looking for some fun stickers & P.L. card packs.

  Thanks for visiting with me & please leave a comment & subscribe to my blog, I love to share projects & great deals when I come across them.







Hugs,

Episode 424 ~ Scrapbooking with Perfect Layers

Hi Everyone & Happy Sunday,

  We are getting ready for yet another Open House today so I wanted to quickly share this video with all of you before we head out the door. As many of you know, I have been seriously trying to get caught up on my scrapbooking & this is a double page spread of my family.

  I used the Perfect Layers cutting guides to layer my pictures, which is my least favorite thing to do in scrapbooking. It used to take me forever to get the layers perfect, but these guides really make it quick & simple, yippee!!! Now layering isn't such a hassle & I actually like to mat all my pictures now...

  Hopefully this will encourage other scrappers to mat those photos & explain how to use the guides, I wasn't sure how to use them when I first got them.

  Enjoy the rest of your weekend & happy scrapping crafty friends







Hugs,

Episode #423 ~ My Favorite Things/ Thank you cards

Hi Happy Crafters,

  I hope everyone had a blessed Easter who celebrates, I know I ate my weight in jelly beans - yum!!! Today I wanted to do some Copic coloring, so I grab one of my really cute stamps from My Favorite Things called "Have a Blooming Good Day". Coloring is a great way for me to relax & always puts a smile on my face.

  Thank you cards are always much needed in my house, so I made two cards that will go out in the mail today. If you have any questions, please ask - otherwise leave me a comment, I love to hear from you!







Happy Tuesday,

Episode #422 ~ S.S.S. #34 Scrapbooking Layouts

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends,

  Boy, I have finally made some progress on my mad attempt to get caught up on my scrapbooking pages! I have finished my daughter's Prom pictures from 2012 as well as the pictures from her Sweet 16 party... what a relief! I am used to always being current & up-to-date on all of my pages, so this is really making me crazy being 2 years behind.

  Thank you for stopping by & taking some time to watch my video, enjoy the rest of your Sunday. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.







Happy Hugs,
