Going Postal!

I got to work with one of Stuff to Scrap’s new designers this month, Just for Fun Designs!  Kelly has some fun kits in the store…the one I grabbed to work with is Going Postal!  My small little family of 4 lives in Texas while all the rest of our family live on the East Coast: Virginia and North Carolina.  I have tons and tons of pictures of my boys opening fun packages from Grandma, Granny and Pa and even Great Grandmas!  They love getting mail and love all the fun goodies sent by family.

She also has a freebie add on on her Facebook page….

Also check out her blog for some fun glitter sheets and cardstock!

The History of “27”

My hubby and I will be celebrating 10 years of marriage on July 27!  You may be asking why a sale now?  Well, we are ditching the kids (yes we have someone watching them) and taking a 2 week vacation!!  Now you are asking why 27, not 10 or something else?  Let me tell you a little about US!

We met our junior year of high school almost 17 years ago!  Our story of the number 27 begins here…

Started dating Feb 27

The phone number where we met had a 27 in it

His zip code ended in 27

His social security number has a 27 in it

We lived in a small town and had to go out of town for dinner, our exit was 127

We visited with friends at the lake and the golf cart we used…you guessed it 27!

Got married July 27

My labor and delivery room with baby 2 was #27!

We notice 27 EVERYWHERE we go!  It has become a “lucky” number for us over the years.  Our family will even point out 27’s when they see them.  So how could I NOT use 27 for a sale?  Now help me celebrate by filling up your cart and saving 27% off!

How about a few photos for nostalgia?  There are a couple of layouts then a few pics…a Christmas pic before we were married and a pic of us in college in the mountains and of course a wedding photo.  One of the layouts shows a cabin…that is where we got married!  I walked out the door to my hubby to be.

Woolly Bully and a tutorial!

Cutie Fruity has a new kit and it is super cute!  BAAA RAM EWE! Woolly Bully is the perfect kit to scrap pictures of sheep! Sheep at the fair, sheep on the farm, sheep at the rodeo! Ewe can Ram pics of your Lambs onto scrap pages all day with Woolly Bully. It has 20 papers and 40 elements and a lower case alpha. This kit has been quality checked to meet STS’s high standards.

I decided to pull out some older photos to scrap…2005 and 2007!  The baby is almost 8!!  Time has flown by for sure…wasn’t he cute?  Okay, he still is, MOST of the time.  We live in good ol Texas and I have quite a few pictures from the Rodeo and the fair grounds at the rodeo.

Okay…now this fun page and a tutorial…  I am sure you are wondering why I put two of the exact same page down.  Look closely and you will see they is a slight difference.  Do you see it?  No?  Check the journaling, one of them is easier to read and I didn’t use a journaling block or mat so how did I do it?  I found a fun tutorial by Amber at CT member of Suzy Q Scraps: Here is a link to the video.  I used a layer mask and a gradient to get the faded effect behind the photo….

Here is how it works.  You type out your text and get it how you like it.  You then take a solid paper ( I chose yellow since it was the dominant color and would stand out less) and drag it onto your page.  Place it behind the text.  Next add a layer mask to the solid paper, click on gradient, choose black to white, check radial gradient and click reverse.  Put your cursor in the center of your text and drag out at a diagonal and release….I have done this on a lot of pages but if I made NO SENSE Amber does a great job going step by step in her video.  As you see it makes so much easier to read text on a busy background.  🙂


Now how about a look at that fun kit I used??
