Welcome to August's Pretty Cards & Paper Bog Hop! For August we are using the 6" x 6" Colour paper packs found on page 150 of the Annual Catalogue. I'm using the 2020-2022 In Colour designer series paper for my scrapbook page.
Earlier this month was Crop Kingston's August Virtual Crop. We used the Forever Greenery designer series paper to create either 6 scrapbook pages or 8 cards. Today I'm sharing with you my original design that was included in the instructions and then an alternative layout I created live during the crop.
These 2 pictures are from December 2004. I found them while going through my 19+ year photo pile. The Playful Pets designer series paper was sitting on my desk waiting for me to create projects for Crop Kingston's September Virtual Crop. It was perfect to use on this layout! There are matching trinkets that I've ordered to add to this page. The Playful Pets Trinkets are hearts and bones little embellishments that I think will work really well with this page. I'm excited to add them to this layout and use them on the samples for the crop classes. If you are interested in our September crop registration will open within the next 2 weeks.
Welcome to July's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop! This month our theme challenge is Monochromatic. I found some pictures of my sister-in-law's wedding flowers that needed to be scrapbooked and her colours were white and yellow daisies.

We held our first Mini Virtual Crop this past Saturday. We used the 2020-2022 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper and the Tasteful Textures bundle to create our projects. This layout was one of my designs. The pictures are of my husband from 2000 when we went camping with my family. I still need to figure out what I'm going to write for journaling (this is the hardest part of scrapbooking for me).
Scrapbook layout created as an additional inspiration project for our last Virtual Crop Kingston Crop using the Ornate Garden Suite. I was scrapbooking pictures from my Washington, DC trip when I was in Grade 9 (not going to figure out how long ago that was). Our next Virtual Crop will be on Saturday June 6th! Contact me to sign up.

The Dashing Deer stamp set and matching dies were perfect for pictures of our little excursion to find some deer in a field nearby my parent's home. And the Best Dressed designer series paper is very versatile for many projects. It was the perfect match for the deer images and pictures of our excursion.
For the past few weeks Stampin' Up! has given demonstrators a #KeepStamping challenge on the Demonstrator Facebook page. This week we were given a colour challenge.
Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends April Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Twisted - use a product in a different way than originally designed or create one project and then change it into another project!
I was stumped at first what I wanted to create! My creativity lately has been very low with our lives being changed by the COVID-19 virus. But last Saturday I helped run an online crop instead of an all-day crop we normally do and it sparked my crafting.
Thank you to all that joined us last Saturday at our February crop in support of H'Art Kingston! And thank you for the wonderful feedback about our new location - the Salvation Army Church. It is a wonderful spot with lots of space, good lighting and easy to get to!
Welcome to February's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. This month we have a great sketch for inspiration!

The hardest part for me with sketches is finding the right photo to use. I went digging through my old photos to find this one of my family when we were camping somewhere. Haven't figured out what date (1988??) or where it was yet, so no journaling. I love that I have a swim ring on and a visor!
A single picture is hard for me to scrapbook sometimes! I enjoy creating pages with multiple photos. But this one photo of Hoover staring at me while I was sitting at my desk is a favourite of mine. It's one of 6 photos in a frame we have hung up to remember him.
Thank you to those that joined us on Saturday at Crop Kingston's January Crop. This month our donations went to the St. Lawrence College Student Emergency Fund.
Hello and welcome to January's Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop! This month we are sharing scrapbook pages created using any product from the Stampin' Up! catalogues!

My layout today is a really quick and easy one! These pictures are from a road trip we did in June 2008. I cannot remember why we went for a drive but love the pictures I took. This layout uses the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series paper with Terracotta Tile, Balmy Blue and Pear Pizazz. The DSP has simple patterns and gold accents. During Sale-A-Bration you can earn this paper for free when you place a $60 order.
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).
