The new E2 and check out Everyday Cricut for great projects with new carts.

Wow! So how many of you are going to be watching HSN to see the new Cricut E2 from ProvoCraft? I know I'll watch just to see all the great projects they show. I don't know that I'll be buying one, but I can drool right? :) Everyday Cricut is doing a giveaway for one here:

I'm putting my name in and will keep my fingers and toes crossed! :) They're also doing giveways of Emma's stamps and some of the new cartridges. Too cool.

Creating Keepsakes Convention

So I noticed I never put pictures up of what I made at the convention. I took a SEI class which is the gift bag and mini set. I then took a few LickitySplitScrapbook classes. I didn't realize I'd signed up for a few from the same person until I went to the 2nd one. So all the design credit goes to these guys. I made a mini board book album. I didn't know what this was at the time, but now I see a great way to upcycle/recycle those baby board books my girls have outgrown! The other was a Friendship Flip book. LOVE, LOVE this idea. A picture of the person goes on one side and when you flip it up, you have their name, birthday, email etc. on the other side. It has spurred other ideas for making a recipe flip book, address book, etc. I'll just share some of the images of what I made. I wouldn't feel right putting up how these were made as the designs are probably copyrighted.

Spring Break

So I've been on spring break this past week. I got a lot done in regards to crafting. My DH decided our girls would have fun with their Aunt, Cousin, and Grandparents so they spent most the week away. We went to get them and bring them home so we could have a family weekend. We spent all of today at OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry Great place but I think it wore me out more than them! :) So, I did remember to take pictures of some of the things I did this week. The first I'll put up is the two scrapbook pages I did for my sister just for fun. The layout design (not the paper) is from LickitySplitScrapbooks. I went to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Portland about two weeks ago and saw this saying and loved it so bought the kit just for it. I decided I wanted to use different paper though. The paper is from DCWV new Lemon Flower Stack. I love this stack. It has pretty yellow and greens with grey, silver and black. It's exclusive to Joann's.
