Weekly Layout by Leslie.

I hope your Christmas was as wonderful as mine. This was going to be another Bah-hum-bug because all my kids could not be together. However, having Derek home from a two year mission has taken the Bah - out of our Bah-hum-bug Christmas. It is so nice to have him home. Yesterday was such a fun day, attending church, skyping, exchanging gifts, eating yummy food, and playing games.

I love this new craze of "The Elf on the Shelf" I wish one of those magical elves woud have found there way to my grand children's home. Many of you have shared stores of what these fun elves have done in your homes. It sound so fun. I am sure you will want to preserve these memories. Leslie has created this layout for her grandson and his elf Allan. Great job Leslie!

We have some fun classes going on this week, tomorrow is NYOBC with Margene and you will be making this fun project for $25.00

Millie "Q" is on Wednesday - FULL

P.J. Crop on Friday - $15.00
Saturday we will be hosting an All Day Crop. We still have 4 seats open. Our crop will begin at 10:30 am New Years Eve and end at 1:00am New Years day. We had such a great time last year we thought we would do it again.

The Sampler is just 2 weeks away. We have another fun project plan. Come and meet our teachers and see the new classes offered this quarter,

All Christmas paper and embellishments will be 35% off this week.

Happy Scrapp'n

Weekly Layout by Michelle.

This weekend has been super crazy. Thursday my best friend, Michelle came in to watch the store so all of my family could be present at the airport when my son Derek came home from his 2 year mission. She did an amazing job. Her problem solving skills were at her best. The product needed for Beth's weekly layout wasn't here so she took it upon herself to create and kit this adorable layout. Thanks, Shell! You are the Bestest. We are all so glad to have Derek home!

Weekly Layout by Margene plus catch-up . . .

This layout was designed by Margene. She teaches a few classes here at Scrapp'n Savvy. NYOBC by Pinecone Press, Kaiser Kreations and Pages, Pizza, and Prizes! Any of you that have come to one of her classes can see why I am so thankful Margene is on the Scrapp'n Savvy team.

I need to do some catch-up. Life is crazy as you all know and Scrappy decided to help make it even crazier by chewing on my computer power cord. So while I am here in Indiana making memories with my granddaughter and her family I will post some back post of the weekly layouts from the past.

My visit started an introduction of our newest Allen addition. We like to call him "little man" it works because we called Tori "baby girl"
Tori and I have been busy doing fun things every day, like coloring princess pictures with magic markers
Shopping for new big girls clothes, baby Garrett clothes, and a "pretty dress for Daddy" and of coarse something new for Tori's fantastic mommy. All shopping days should end with a special lunch date that includes chicken nuggets, french fries and a "wee slide"

doing fun things with Tori's hair while watching princess sing-a-long movies.

Helping mommy and grandma with baby Garrett

Dress-up and fun or maybe not so fun photo shoots

Halloween festivities

like making cookies for Tori's friends, family and neighbors

daily walks to the park to play on the "wee slide and to have peanut butter picnics.

and of coarse trick-or-treating. Snow white left her poison apple at home with mommy and daddy while grandma taught her to say, "treat-treat". She learn pretty quickly that it got her some yummy candy

We had a great time
but my favorite part of each day was to watch Tori play with her toys. I love how she lines them up in a row everywhere, the bookshelves, windows, bathtub and even "Mama's" computer.

My heart already aches at the thought of going home. I am so thankful for my family and friends back in Texas who are running Scrapp'n Savvy so I can make these memories with my children and grandchildren.

Happy Scrapp'n my good friends

Weekly Layout by Leslie!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month Leslie created this layout. If any of you know Leslie, you know she is an "over achiever". She hand stitched every heart shaped yo-yo in these kits. Her mom Mom (Helen) made the Pink Breast Cancer Ribbons. She has made these ribbons to make earrings, and to string onto a bookmark. She makes items for the Women's Atrium at Houston NW, and has for years. She makes drainage pouches, bookmarks, ribbons, wraps, journals, pillows, pillowcases, tote bags, and a number of other items. So you can see the apple didn't fall far from the tree. Thank you Helen and Leslie for this beautiful page.

To you who are reading this and have been effected by breast cancer our prayers are with you and your loved ones. I know this journey is hard. Fight like a girl! We are on your side!

Stay Savvy . . . Scrap often!

Garrett starts his earthly journey. . .

Garrett Jones Allen
4lbs 15.4oz
18 .4"

Following in his older sister's foot steps, this sweet baby boy comes to join us 22 days early. As you know I was so looking forward to being there and helping with Tori. I guess it wasn't meant to be. They have some great friends that were there for them and I will still join them in a few days to meet this young man. I loved this picture. It brought tears to my eyes. I was flooded with the memories of when each one of my boys was placed in my arms for the first time.

Weekly Layout by Alec and Karrie

Getting caught up. After the Sampler I had to jump right into designing and kitting Lickety Slip. Most of you have met Alec my handy helper. He jumped up to the task to start designing my weekly layout. It seems I over looked that it was my turn. I loved his use of the colors and the title he choice. I know it will be a great home for the pictures of my grand kids trick-or treating this year.

Thanks Alec for your help and thank you all for your patients.
Happy Scrapp'n!

Scrapp'n Sampler

Thank you so much for coming and playing with us today. And thanks to all who made it a point to make cards for Stephen. Here are the pictures of the pages we did as promised. Tomorrow I will type in some instructions to go with them.

I will update them as I get each one done. The pages have been posted in a random order. Have fun creating. . . look forward to seeing you again.

On the canvas layout the first thing you need to do is punch a decorative border on one short side of the Bazzill Ruby Slipper (red cardstock).
Adhere the lace to the back side of the bottom of the punch Ruby Slipper.
Use Fabri-tac to adhere the Ruby Slipper to the canvas just right of the binding holes with the punched edge on the right.
Add your Authentique "Wonder" Curiosity printed paper to the Ruby Slipper for a photo mat
Use glue dots to adhere the ribbon to the bottom of the photo mat.
Add flourish, flower and die-cuts.

The Authentique "Wonder" Awe printed paper (music notes) and adhere it to the back side of the bottom so that music notes show through the acrylic.
Use the other prints and cardstock die-cut strips and adhere them to the left side of the acrylic page.
Use an craft knife to clean up the paper that covers the holes
Use a pop-dot to adhere the die-cut deer and Bazzill flower.
The die-cut title and photo mat.

Use Fabri-tac to adhere the photo mat, tree and die-cut title strip to the felt tag.
To make the bunch bow, thread the read wire ribbon thru the hole of the felt tag and tie a knot. lay the other ribbons over the knot and tie them into the knot using the red wire ribbon. Fluff up the ribbon and trim them so that the ones on top are shorter than the ones on bottom. Tie the ornament onto the end of the wire then curl the wire by wrapping it around a small dowel

Adhere the template cut strips to he upper and lower part of the 6x6 Ruby Slipper Bazzill Cardstock. Paint the chipboard edges with gold paint and the adhere the 6x6 layout to the center. Use pop-dots to adhere the flower and the die-cut oval.

Use your favorite punch to punch a decorative edge to the Authentique printed strip. Adhere a 4x4 photo to the upper left corner of the cardboard page. The punched strip is tucked slightly under the photo and glued vertically to the layout. Add die-cuts and I-Top flower to they layout as desired.

Weekly Layout by Karrie!

I loved Homecoming week while I was in High School and I love it even more now that my kids are in high school. Spirit week is my favorite, I loved to dress up in fun costumes with my friends and I really loved helping and watching my boys come up with costumes of their own. My oldest is a high school science teacher and he dressing up for his school spirit week. Something you just have to scrapbook. Here is a layout to help you capture those fun memories.

Happy Scrapp'n
