Hi everyone, Gabriela here today and I finally made a page I've been thinking about for a while. I thought it would be fun to make a page with a shaker window, so I tried it out. I used a chipboard cutout from Want2Scrap along with some of their bling and of course paper and ink from Quick Quotes. I scrapped a picture of my husband and I on vacation in New Orleans a few years ago, it's one of my favorite pictures of us and it seemed like a good fit for this page.

Xyron and Quick Quotes, Make a Banner Page

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a page using Club Q for this month with some help from my Xyron supplies. I made this page a banner page because of the adorable twine included in this month's Club Q. I also attended a quilt show this past weekend and decided to "hang" some of my favorites from the show on the banner. I started by choosing my 3 favorite pictures from the show and then built the page around that idea.


 

 Check out the video below to see how to put this page together.



I hope you enjoyed the video and you're inspired to make a banner page of your own. Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting.

Hey there everybody! I am writing today about the super cool camera I just got, an instant camera. I have been eyeballing these since they can out but the price tag was a little steep for a purely fun purchase.  However, I found a nice sale at my local Best Buy and decided to take the plunge...and I'm glad I did!

A sweet setup!

I wasn't sure how much film I needed, so I got 20 regular exposures and 10 rainbow border exposures. I bought more film 3 days later, not because I used it all, but I did go through 10 fairly quickly. The pictures are very cool and they are about the size of a business card. I bought an album that holds 120 photos so that I could snap all of the photos. I'm going to decorate it with some vinyl designs from my Cricut eventually too.

l really like the case too, I chose the light pink camera because I thought the other colors were heavy and the white was too plain.

The flap of the case snaps on and off.

Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and I can't wait to scrap these photos. Happy crafting!

So this was my first year going to Scrapbook Expo and I got my entire life from it! There were so many booths and activities! I had no idea what I was missing but now that I have seen the crafty promised land, I am already excited about next year. There is a Mega Make & Take on Thursday night and then an all day crop on Saturday and Sunday. The shopping floor is also open on Friday & Saturday and classes are offered on those two days as well.

The side with the vendors/exhibitors had lots of product but also lots of space to move around and be comfortable.

I went with one of my coworkers and it was also her first time, so we wanted to try everything so we did a Make & Take with Fun Stamper's Journey and Richard Garay was there! We made this super cute Christmas tag and even got a free stamp. 

This is cool and it only took about 15 minutes.

Scrapping with Coldplay

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a page I loved doing. I went to see Coldplay in Chicago last month and I knew I wanted to scrap the concert and use some bold colors. I started by making a mini pocket album.  I cut my paper at 12" x 6" and scored at 1.5" across and 3" vertically.

These panels will be taped together.
Then I added a background and my letters.
  
I chose a picture from when the band was performing "Yellow" and adhered the mini pocket album to the page.  Inside that I placed the ticket stubs and a journaling card.


This concert was absolutely amazing and to be honest, I will probably scrap it again :), happy crafting.
