A Week of Learning Something New

It's been a bit since I've posted my Learn Something New pages for Shimelle's class. I've been a bit busy with home stuff lately, but still finding some scrapping time. Here are all of my pages from last week, and a little bit about each one. By the end of this month, I'm happy to say that this printed paper should be used up, and most of the accessories (minus the ribbon), should be used up as well. I have been greatly enjoying the narrow focus on product - it makes the creative process a little easier. When we first started dating, we used to just sit and talk for hours. Now that we are married, it's been more difficult to find that peaceful quiet time when we can just talk about nothing - no serious talk, just chatter. I used some old Amy Butler paper on this one, combined with some SU paper. I have a tin of the metal embellishments that I NEVER use, so I'm trying to find creative ways to use them.

Anyone who knows me knows that I struggle with cooking. I can bake better than I can cook. Baking, however, does not make us a meal. I like to try new recipes, but it seems they always flop, or are too bland for my hubby. I seem to have succeeded this past week in making 3 successful recipes. I received so many compliments on the scones - it was great. This page also used up a bunch of scrapbooking product - much of this is SU, but the patterned paper is some old Amy Butler paper. I liked the paper when I bought it, haven't really liked it for the past couple of years, and now I really like it...go figure!!

Ok - a little feud in the office that I have been put right in the middle of. I could have chosen to join in the little battle (that is still ongoing by the way), or throw my hands up and tell them they have to work it out. I like being on the outside of the argument much better...but I have to laugh...two grown people that are behaving like children. Stuff on this one - mostly SU, and more Amy Butler paper.

A funny time in the office....a coworker and I made a fool out of ourselves when we raced each other to the front door to greet a guest...turns out it was someone here for an interview. At least the visitor knows we like to have fun here :) Yeah for me for using more of the SU stickers that I've had for like 2 years!!!
Hmm, this day was a little odd. I went with my hubby's mother to the very small historical society museum in town. The lady knew nothing about the town, but yet she was volunteering there. Now I know this is a great way for her to learn about the town, but isn't she supposed to be educating the visitors??

He was so sweet - I wanted to hit the outlets and a local scrapbooking store in Phoenix before we drove back home, but we had the 3 dogs with us. He waited in the car for me while I shopped...kept the trip quick, but it was still really sweet. Went a little button crazy on this layout (and have been button crazy ever since). I did use up some letters that I've had for awhile. I've been on a letter kick now too...it all comes in phases.
Happy Tuesday everyone. I'll have some 12x12 layouts for you all later.

Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
