Finally getting around to posting pictures from our Summer Fun Crop that was held July 23, 2011.  It was to benefit the Muhlenberg food pantry.  We raised over $400 and numerous bags of food.  You can click on any image to enlarge it.

 Above are the croppers and below are the raffle items.  We had 10 raffles and raised $220 in ticket sales.  Thank you to the vendors for their donations.

For those come to each crop in the Summer and Winter, you may know that I make a little thank you gift for each of the vendors.  This year we had Jill from CTMH, Joanne from CM, and Beth from Scraptacular.  I made a gift tag, a card and framed their initial from their first name.  I really liked how they all turned out and hope they did too!

I know I'm late, but where does the time go?  Here are a few cards I made with my January kit from tayloredexpressions.  I apologize for the not so great pictures, distracting background.  I had a whiteboard to put behind them, but now I can't find it.

Stamps from CTMH and Hero Arts, Ink from CTMH
Punches from ek success
Floss and string for the buttons from my stash

New layouts to share

Yes, it's been a while since I updated my blog.  I have been papercrafting all this time, just not finding the time to blog.  But I'm back today to share 2 8x8 layouts of my niece's cutey little daughter Keira.

First layout is from Keira's February photo shoot.

The second layout is from her May photo shoot.

This layout also also includes a picture with her parents, Kelly and Todd.  (sorry for the bad photography on my part)

Supplies for both:  Patterned paper, die cuts and felt bird are from Kaiser Craft.  Cardstock is Bazzill.  Buttons, flower gem are from my stash.  Glitter letters are Making Memories.  Punch is from Martha Stewart.

Summer Fun Crop

I've been away from my blog for a few weeks, again, because I have been busy planning a crop for our local scrapbook group.  I have one each January and July. 
I have a few pictures to share from the event.  I wish I had taken more.

These 2 are shots of the croppers.

This is a shot of one of the vendors, ScrapbooksNSmiles.

This is the prize table.

We had a great time chatting, shopping, eating, and oh yeah, scrapbooking or card making.  We had a potluck so everyone brought something and all the food was so yummy! 
Ten of of us participated in a card swap.  All the cards we beautiful.  We'll have to do this again next time.  Below is mine.  Very simple :)

I always make a little something for the vendors and I did remember to take a picture of them at home, but not at the crop with each of them. 

These are a 4 inch canvas that I got at AC Moore, covered with vintage sheet music, and added trim around the edge.  The flowers are Prima, which I could only find in orange and green, so I used Maya Mist to spray the purple and red ones and added an spritz of a metallic. Then I add a little butterfly.
