Bella Paper Pack

I just uploaded (link here password is bellah) the Bella paper packs. I split it up into two packs in order to upload faster:) I hope you have fun with them. Remember, if you make a layout or project utilizing pieces of the Bella kit, come back here and leave a comment with the link of where it's posted. I'd LOVE to see what you all come up with!

Here is a quick page that I made. The picture is of our friend Brie. It's her engagement picture to Yale!!! We are so excited for them and can't wait for the Wedding in San Diego. Congrats you two love birds.

Karma Got In The Way

We had a family emergency last night and I am still trying to get caught up. I had to go get my niece at 1 a.m. to stay the morning until school. She and I have been busy this morning eating cinnamon rolls, chocolate milk and bananas. I will try to get back on track later today. It looks like I may have to launch my kit tomorrow or in a few days. SO sorry everyone:( Please hang in there with me. Thanks


My first kit BELLA is supposed to be launched tomorrow (March 24th, 2008), BUT I have been having some problems with 4shared. I have put together a little sneak peek (I spelled it right this time LOL:) so here it is in all her glory.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I will release the kit one piece at a time. Make sure you check back every couple of days for a new piece. Thanks for playing along everyone.

I Shall Call it Bella!

My First Kit
I know it's been a few days since my last post, I'm really sorry about that:( I am quickly realizing how I am going to have to juggle my time between all my scrap projects and school. Yikes!!! Last Saturday I spent a couple of hours and started making my first kit. I shall call it BELLA. It's fun and pretty basic. BUT, I'm still proud of it! I think it may be a micro-kit. Not sure yet though. Anyway, below is a layout that I did of my "Bella" niece NeelyLynn. Everything, EVERYTHING you see on the page is a product of my kit. Stay tuned as I will be rolling out pieces of the kit a little at a time. Since 24 is my favorite number, I will launch the first piece of the kit on Tuesday March 24th, 2009!

Mary Lou Raffle Quilt "Park Bench Quilters"

I know this has nothing to do with scrapbooking specifically, but it does have to do with supporting a good family friend, my local art community and arts & crafts in general. If you feel interested please keep reading. Who wouldn't love to have a piece of art after only spending $1?!
"Park Bench Quilters"

A long time family friend of mine, Mary Lou Weidman, is an amazing artist and quilter. She is so inspirational to me as a person and as an artist. Once you see what this amazing woman can to with fabric, you'll be just as amazed as I am. She is such a giving person and (as I understand it) drew out the design of the quilt pictured above for the Fiber Artist guild of Spokane,WA/and Idaho who then pieced it all together. The proceed of the raffle will go to cover the cost of their quilt show in April.
If you would like to purchase tickets they are $1 each. Please make your checks out to "Sew Uniquely You" and send to the address below:
Nancy Huck2338
West Courtland
Spokane, WA 99205

She is asking for a self-addressed, stamped envelope from those who would like to have the raffle ticket stubs mailed to them. Otherwise she will keep the stubs from all the out-of-town folks and put their tickets in the bin for the drawing. Don't forget, she needs a phone number or email as a contact.

What a beautiful work of art! It has such great details. I personally love how the feet dangle below the ladies. So clever. Please keep in mind that this a Wall sized quilt. You can read more info. about the raffle and about Mary Lou at her blog found here. I would like to ask you, that if you know of ladies who are into quilting or would just love to add a new piece of art to their home, please pass on this info. to them as the money helps support local artisans in the Spokane, WA/Idaho areas. Thank you so much. Good luck to you all!!!!
