been busy...

We've been busy preparing for the little one's arrival, who, according to my OB, can arrive any day now. I know it's early (I'm only 37 weeks!) but with my previous history with Jonah (he was just shy of making it to 38 weeks) and my gestational diabetes, there's a chance she'll want to make her appearance sooner or she'll be too big for me to carry to full term. We will see...

So, I've been frantically trying to organize the house, the scrap room, and get everything ready for her arrival. It's been busy to say the least!

But I've had time to scrap a little! Yay me!

supplies: kraft cardstock (Stampin' Up!), patterned paper (Candy Lane Designer Series Paper - Stampin' Up!), font die cut letters (Fling font cut with Cricut and SCAL)

I finally got SCAL loaded into my laptop and I'm having a lot of fun with it! No more investing in new cartridges... Well, maybe it will decrease my desire. I can't promise anything! *lol* It's so easy to use. I love it. I just hate how it cuts so SLOW. But I guess that's the price you pay for the value...

Anyway, I made 3 other similar cards.. And I made this one:

supplies: American Crafts patterned paper and cardstock; Thank You rub-on: 7 gypsies; stamping ink: ColorBox; scallop and circle punches: Marvy Uchida

I made the cards for some co-workers at work who gave us some awesome baby shower presents. :)

And there were a couple of group gifts from some units so instead of cards I made layouts to display in their report rooms:

This one was an 8x8 layout... I hadn't scrapped in this size in FOREVER. I love how liberating it is! supplies: cardstock, silk flower: Bazzill; patterned paper, brad: American Crafts; scallop border punch: Stampin' Up!; font: 2Peas Sailboat; die cut letters: Alphalicious (Cricut)

And this is a 12x12 layout I did for my unit... supplies: patterened paper: Sassafrass Lass; cardstock: Bazzill; silk flower: Prima; font: 2Peas Sailboat; die cut letters: Alphalicious (Cricut); felt letters, pen: American Crafts

And finally I made a card for my MIL's birthday this past Tuesday. Super simple! supplies: patterned paper: I can't remember what set, but it was a hostess set from the Spring/Summer 2009 catalog from Stampin' Up!; fabric label: Making Memories: scallop border punch: Stampin' Up!

Whew! I've been busy, haven't I??? I want to use all the scrapping mojo I can before the baby's arrival. I doubt I'll have time after that!

Have a great rest of the week!
