Happy New Year! Today I am sharing the projects from Crop Kingston's Fall Weekend Retreat we held back in October. Our Winter Weekend Retreat is coming up February 7 to 9. Registration closes on January 7th.
Welcome to my blog and December's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop celebrating Holidays! With Christmas around the corner I pulled some pictures from December 2014 that were in pockets without the page being finished. I seem to say that a lot lately! But it's true! The pictures are printed and are waiting for me to go back and fill in the gaps with pretty paper and stamps. In January I will be working on filling in my gaps and sharing my scrapbooking journey here on my blog and over on Follow me over on Instagram to see what I'm up to!
Working slowly on pictures from 2007. These 2 pictures are from September 30 and were taken from my front step looking at the field across from the house. They were starting the harvest - I believe it was a field of soybeans.
Thank you to those that joined us on November 23rd for Crop Kingston's all day crop. Each attendee received the Night Before Christmas 6"x6" designer series paper pack in their grab bags. Lisa and I provided make and takes using that pack of designer series paper that each person could create during the crop.
Hello and thank you to those that joined us last month for our October all-day crop in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities! Today I'm sharing with you our four make and takes. Make and takes are provided at each crop using product found in the grabs bags. This month each attendee received the Noble Peacock foil sheets.
Happy Halloween! It's a very frightful here today with heavy rain and strong winds. We will be handing out Play-doh and Twizzlers to about 100 kids tonight, if they decide to brave the weather! This scrapbook page is my take on a sketch provided by Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine last month (above photo).
A lovely day spent crafting this past Saturday! I completed a few projects that were on my to-do list. And yes, I make a to-do list for crop day or I either forget what I was supposed to make or forget something at home!
This pocket page uses the same pack of designer series paper as my last pocket page I shared on Sep 17 - the First Frost Specialty designer series paper but it has a different look and feel to it. This designer series paper is very versatile and I love the silver foil. Although if you watch me colouring in the snowflakes in the video you can tell that bright lights and silver foil make it hard to keep the colour between the lines!
These random photos taken in Manitoba, where we lived for a few years, are the perfect match for the Feels Like Frost specialty designer series paper. One side of the designer series paper has photographic images on one side and designs with silver foil on the other.
Welcome to our September Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop and our theme of Bundles! So much excitement with the new 2019 Holiday catalogue products being available this week. There are 25 new bundles in this new catalogue! And the best thing about bundles is the 10% savings when you purchase the items together using one item number! I decided to create a pocket page layout using the Perfectly Plaid bundle - a photopolymer stamp set and punch.

Thank you to all that join us this past Saturday for our August crop in support of Kingston Animal Rescue.

I had so much fun creating this month's card and pocket page for the crop! There was some fussy cutting for the flowers from the designer series paper. The only stamping on my projects were the greetings/title.
Love this page! When I started creating this page I knew that I wanted these 3 pictures on the same page and that one of them would be smaller. Before putting things together I pulled out 2 stamp sets, different colour of foil sheets and the Come Sail Away designer series paper hoping that everything would work together in the end AND it did!! It's always great to make a page you like when you start off not knowing how to get it done!

The smaller photo ended up being 3" x 3", the other two photos were left at 4" x 6". I used Mango Melody, Basic Gray and Gray Granite to mat the photos. Before stamping the trees in the bottom left corner I stamped it on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on my page so that the trees were lighter.

If you missed the Facebook Live where I created this page you can watch it here:

Thank you to everyone that joined us last month for Crop Kingston July's All Day Crop in support of Loving Spoonful here in Kingston. We used the Come Sail Away Memories & More card pack for our Make and Takes this month.

So glad we used this Memories & More card pack this month! I have a whole trip with my mom to PEI in 2013 that needs to be scraped and this pack is perfect for it! Watch for more layouts in the future featuring pictures from this trip and this card pack.
On Thursday I found more photos from 2004 when my husband went fishing with a friend. I had 2 of these pics into a multi photo pocket page spread already but when I discovered the extra photos I knew it would need its own page.
These pictures are from a Great Big Sea concert from December 2004. They released a new CD that year that included the song Shines Right Through Me and I decided to use the tune as inspiration. I used the lighthouse from the Sailing Home stamp set and the light beam, title & dirt from the High Tide stamp set.

Hello! Welcome to July's Scrapbook Global Blog Hop. Our theme this month is travel. I found these train trip pictures from March 2008 that were waiting to be scrapped and a perfect fit for this month's theme!
Fireworks! Since last week was Canada Day I thought scraping these photos was a good idea to do on my Facebook live. If you haven't watched yet you will most likely hear me talk about not liking the page and how it wasn't turning out for me the way I thought! Now that a few days has passed I really do like this page! What do you think? - leave me a comment below if you'd like.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday at Crop Kingston's June Crop in support of Make A Wish, we raised just over $60. The first two projects were designed by me.
Welcome to June's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Birthdays and Parties.

I found these pictures of Hoover waiting to be scrapped and knew they would be perfect for today's blog hop. The background paper is a sheet from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper pack. The frame around the main photo was made using the largest die of the Rectangle Stitched dies, then trimmed around the outside to create the thickness I wanted. I discovered when creating this page that the only current stamp set I have with candles or birthday hats was the Celebrate with Cake stamp set from the Stamping for Beginners brochure but it is a perfect fit!

Stamps:  Celebrate with Cake
Colours:  Seaside Spray, Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Accessories:  Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Rectangle Stitched dies, Everyday Label Punch, Ribbon Punch Stampin' Dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by today! Head on over to Siggi's blog to see her wonderful page!

Currently I am working on filling gaps in my scrapbooks - right now working on 2005, 2007 and 2008. The pictures used in this layout were just popped into a page waiting to be made into a completed layout! The opposite page was a 12" x 12" layout that was completed in 2010, as shown below.
