I completed all of my layouts. I finally figured out how to get those pictures off my phone and printed. I even found some pictures laying around that had been printed and nothing done with them and I scrapped them. YIPPY! Happy New Year! I am ready for 2012

Scrappy Challenge

So I gave myself a little pre-New Years resolution to get all of my scrapbooking caught up before the end of the year. Yikes! I know that is what I thought when this first came out of my mouth. But hey here it is New Years Eve and I am one layout away from having it all caught up. My only problem is getting some of the final picture off of my phone and onto my computer so I can print them. So here is one of my layouts that I did of the EISF or Easter Idaho State Fair.

I used the Big Top DSP 122348, Bright Buttons 119747, White Baker's Twine 124262, and the new Labels Collection Framelits Dies 125598 these are not available until January 4th in the new occasions mini catalog. Love them! They are so fun.

Note: If you have been wanting the stocking builder punch 124095 from the Holiday mini order it now. Come January 3rd it is gone and we received a note from the home office that it will not carry over to the new catalog.

I still have openings for the Stampin' Therpy group. If you are interested contact me ASAP.

Let's Smooch

Now that I have your attention let me show you my take on this weeks mojo monday sketch complete with Smooch Spray.

Is this not so cute. I am so loving the new Twitterpated Designer Paper that is coming out in the Occasions Mini catalog on January 4th. I am showing you lots of sneak peaks from this new catty.

Coming Soon:

P.S. I Love You 125462

Twitterpated DSP 125406

Twitterpated Designer Buttons 125579

Pleated Satin Ribbon Blushing Bride 125570

Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz 125580

To achieve this look I spritzed the smooch spritz directly onto the stamp and then stamped it twice. I like the way the second stamping looked better. The first one was a little to hard for me.

It reminded me of Junior High. There was this boy and he was getting ready to plant his first kiss on a friend of mine. Well I am sure at that age all he wanted to do was get out of there. Since yes the whole bus was watching him. So as fast as he could he gave her a big smooch and ran off. Well when he gave the smooch it was so hard my friend's head hit the window of the bus and she started to cry. Poor girl. Like I said the first one was just a little too hard.

In his defence he did grow up in a family of all boys. I am sure he is a little softer now. After all he is married with a bunch of little ones.

With Valentine's just around the corner you are going to want to try this technique so grab that smooch spritz and get stampin'. Give me a call or send me an e-mail to join one of my classes today. This is sure to be a technique we will be trying.

Happy Smooching and Merry Christmas!
