sat night

It’s almost 3am. I am going to SO regret this!
I have been scrapbooking- thought I’d share… I love doing 9×9 pages.
They are short and sweet.. and all about fun and finishing. I finished 4 layouts tonight. did one for each kid.
While I scrapbook I like to watch the same movies OVER and OVER. I get that from my dad. But I don’t really watch them. more just listen. I totally have all the soundtracks memorized! So tonight I started with “Italian Job” went right into “Orange County” and then just finished with “Raise your Voice”- it’s a Hilary Duff movie… and it’s so good! It’s a great flick, my kids love it too… every single time I watch it I totally cry like 3 different times. And usually I HATE movies that make me cry and I refuse to watch any ‘crier’ more than once. But I love this one for some reason.. so that is my recommendation of the week.
‘bike ride’
I was on a fuzzy rub-ons kick tonight. I love the fuzzys- and it had been awhile.
This one of quincy learning to ride the bike has my favorite one- that hot pink damask.
give them a chance… they are tricky to get used to, and require just a little patience, but then when you get the hang- they are fun. Keep in mind:
1.    they are sticky, so keep the protective film over until use-I never even open them. I cut right through the packaging when I want to use them.
2.    you have to cut out what you want to use, and you can’t see where the image is, so you will get good at visualizing where you need to position it.
3.    I like to use my little distressing too to do the actuall rubbing.
4.    Rub aggressively, and when you feel like you have got it all, lift slowly to check…if  its not done, lay it back down and rub more.
5.    When cutting out an image, cut from the side, and leave a section of that straight edge for referance.
And well, I couldn’t go an entire evening of scrapbooking without the glitter, so here it’s on a little plastic alpha Q.
‘the boys baseball’
more fuzzy on this one (stars and “the boys”). This one was quick, and I haven’t scrapbooked on black forever. I used the journaling spots w/ the days of the week (all spelled correctly LOL) i used a sharpie to write directly on the photo..it’s a recent ‘kick’ i’m into.

and I liked the black background so much, that I did it again on this layout. I got a little carried away with the fuzzy and jewels and the butterfly tags…



‘surf camp’
cory is so cute about the surfing stuff…I used my fav boy color combo on this one: orange and brown. Lots of tape made this page SO fast…chipboard frame is from a frame kit, and cut down- new rub ons on that… you’ll notice i like to use sandpaper around all the edges of the photos… saves a step in ‘matting’ all the photos.. you know me-if i like it,i overkill on it.
‘she’s a star’
I am posting this even tho I already did a first day page . I like how it turned out.  amother black layout. (em is probably totally laughing since i just told her that i am out of every color cardstock that i like, and i found this huge stack of like 75 pieces of black cardstock when i was re-organizing some stuff…i guess you use what you have!)

I was having fun. I did another layout that I really liked last night, but I am going to post it with my class description for BPS (it’s my first DISNEYLAND layout in a LONG time)!
People are always asking me when I am coming out with an idea book…I would love to have the time to do that… hopefully I will find the time, but for  now, maybe these little samples will inspire! I really did have fun. I love to scrapbook.
(i use a lot of journaling spots-don’t know how i ever lived with out them! just to make sure you know–journaling spots are a package of little mini-note pads in different styles and colors, people often mistake them for like just pieces of chipboard. there are 10 little sheets in each pad. i love them so much. they look something like this:Img_8481

there are lots of different kinds now)

Also tonight, eric decided to make ‘blintz’ from the Martha Stewart magazine..
So funny… I thought he was kidding when he told me what he was going to do… so he went to the store, got all the ingredients… and his creation was delicious. He made strawberry banana instead of blueberry. I got plenty of photos, so I have to do a page about it.

they turned out so yumm- not great for the diet attempt.
but i am still going to make cookies tomorrow. i have been fighting the craving all week. i am really pretty proud of my will-power.
Have a wonderful Sabbath!

    what awesome layouts!!! you totally had fun, i love how you used the butterfly tags, what a simple easy idea, and since the package comes with like a million of them, it’s a great way to use them up!
    now, PLEASE tell me about the “SHE” does it stand for something???? Is it short form for something??
    I can’t believe you have a new baby and all you get accomplished! you’re such an example to the rest of us. Happy Sabbath to you! are you guys fasting cuz of GC next week? if so, those cookies must be for dessert, and i think i’ll make some too! 😀

    Thanks for sharing all your adorable layouts you did. I am so excited for your BPS class. I am counting the days until I can sign up!
    Quick question for ya…I am trying to break away from doing 2 page layouts (12 x 12) so I can get stuff done…what do you do on the other side of a one page layout? Do you make it match the paper, etc to each other OR you don’t care if they match or not? I need to break out of my comfort zone!!
    Thanks so much…

    I am dying to use one of your 9×9 scrapbooks but I can’t find them!!!! Someone sent me to Down Memory Lane and they don’t have them. Could you direct me to a source…i.e. “hook me up” :+)?

    Hi Heidi–
    QUESTIONS!! Do you have 9×9 paper? or do you just cut it to size? Do you have a fine point Sharpie? and WHEN is your new stuff coming out? And HOW do you stay up til 3AM? When you say you don’t sleep, you MEAN it huh??
    Totally love the *watching the same movies over and over* thing–mine are Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve got Mail…and a few others. Total *chick flicks* that my boys think are so silly…
    I think your DH kinda looks like Bruce Willis in this photo(with hair, of course 🙂
    COOKING? You mean he COOKS? WOW! You got a KEEPER!
    AND last but not least, the layouts are to die for–yep. true story! (LOVE those little Capri-feet!) And of course if you do an idea book you better get TWO OR THREE printings right up front cause it would sell like HOTCAKES! (Blintzes?!!)
    Enjoy the choc chip cookies–salivating here just thinking of it–my favorite!
    Take care, Mary Ellen

    Love your layouts! How nice that your hubby cooked! and I totally agree aobut the movie “Raise Your Voice” it’s by far her best movie in my humble opinion. Make me cry like a baby, and still watch it over and over again.

    Gosh! I was up with you last night. I couldn’t sleep, so I started cleaning out my scrapoom closet. I should have scrapped like you, because now I have a huge mess on my hands and no where near finished. What was I thinking?! I love your layouts. The smaller sizes are real fun to do.
    That dessert Eric made looks so good and I think strawberry banana is much better that blueberry. I’m pretty impressd by his cooking ability. My husband cooks breakfast and grills. I made chocolate chip cookies the other day, but would love your recipe…especially since you say it’s the best. Do share! http://jolenegeorge.blogspot.com/

    Because of you and pages and doing what you do the way you do it and making it all fun and inspiring…yeah, all of that. That’s why I am heading to Vegas for my CK Scrapper of the Year contest. I shouldn’t even be in the middle of something so wild, and yet I am. Right in the middle of it. And you know what?! It’s exactly where I am in love to be. SO, thanks again Heidi, for making me ‘get it’. And I guess I got it good, huh?! {wink} Keep lovin’ that hubby and kids of yours. And tell that good friend, Em, “hi” from Nitty.Gritty. too. =) Ciao for now~

    I do that too. I sit and scrap and listen to movies so I generally put stuff in, like musicals or lots of music in a movie: sound of music, chicago, purple rain, my fair lady, grease, gigi, disney movies, that sort of thing.

    I LOVE the smaller sizes! I scrap mostly 8.5 x 8.5. I used to love the 12 x 12 more, but find that my girls can’t hold such a heavy/large album. I think sticker lettering looks more proportional on the smaller sizes, too.
    I also LOVE to watch movies I’ve already watched during scrapping…that way, if I zone out into that creative place where everything around me disappears, then when I “return” I can just pick up on the movie where I left off. My current faves are Steel Magnolias, Two Weeks’ Notice, and DVR reruns of Lost.
    Last, but not least, I’m crazy to know…is your “days of the week spelled correctly” reference to your Crazy Life tape with the THRUSDAY on it? I just stuck a big flower over that part and used it anyway. Seriously, I figured if the person looking at my page couldn’t figure out that the day the flower was obscuring, the one that was between WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY, was THURSDAY, then they had problems beyond what I could help them with anyway. Gotta love the “big flower fix”!
