Triple Play Part Two

Not a big fan of the mini albums which is how triple play is being advertised?? Thanks to another CTMH consultant I have any idea of how you can use triple play. You can make cards!! :)

Here are my cards and the only extra supplies I needed were extra colonial white cardstock for the cardbase and I used the new opaques mocha adhesive gems for extra embellishments.

Here are the seven cards I made and a holder for the cards. Enjoy!

The cards inside the holder:

Triple Play part 1

Life certainly has been busy and I certainly haven't been of the big event in my life has been a new baby in the family!! My brother and sister in law had a baby girl in August and everyone is super excited as she is the first one! First daughter, first grandbaby, first niece...and since she is a special little one we all need to brag right??? So I was able to use the pink album from the triple play to create a auntie brag book!! Here are the pictures of my album I created...

The Cover:

The first pages--information about Macy's birth and picture of Macy and I just after she was born! We made it there about an hour after her birth! I just love this picture because it looks like she is smiling/laughing at me when she really was crying :)

A few pictures of Macy while at the hospital!

Baptism weekend was the next weekend so the next pages are of her baptism.

Hard to believe that my baby brother is a daddy--but he is a good daddy and I am so happy for him and Amy! So I had to include a daddy/daughter picture in my brag book! Plus one of my favorite (I have a feeling I am going to have ALOT of favorites!) pictures from Labor Day weekend.

I still have room :) but just need to print some more pictures out!! I am sure I will get some more cute ones this weekend while she is visiting!

The back side of the ablum.

Studio J!!! My pages from Christmas 2009

I finally got to play with the Studio J online scrapbooking program that CTMH came out with!! I decided to do the Christmas 2009 pictures. I just submitted my order but I couldn't go to bed until I had a chance to share my new COMPLETED layouts!! Here are some of my layouts that I completed the last couple days! I got more complete layouts with embellishments added and journaling done this past weekend then I did over the weekend of my retreat!!

Here is my first and last page...

Family page...

Christmas Memories...I still had quite a few pictures left so I decided to just make a page with random pictures!

With each family member I dedicated a page for them and them opening their parents. I put my mom and dad together since I didn't have enough to make a complete layout of their own!

My mom's own page with the focus on the new camera! BTW I was taking the pictures with her new camera and we wrapped the old camera in the box! lol

The next two pages focuses on my brother and sister in law. I at first did the two of them on the same layout but then I found some more pictures so I decided to make them their own Amy's is the right page on the first picture and the left page on the second picture and Travis' is the left page on the first pic and the right page on the second pic. Hope that makes sense!! It will be right in my album!!!

Tanya's layout

Terri's layout

All together I got 10 pages done over the weekend!! Wahoo!! Have you checked out Studio J yet??

Valentine's For Kids

I am finally able to do a Kid's Club for Valentine's. I am so excited and can't wait to help the kids make their valentines for their friends and classmates, their teacher and parents or grandparents.

This year I am going to go animal theme for the Valentine's cards to give to their friends and family. The credit for these cute little 3x3 cards goes to several CTMH consultant as they posted their ideas on the CTMH board. I don't know who started it so thanks to the person who created this and sharing it with us. The children will be making 5 of each cards for a total of 25 cards.



I found these cute plastic heart containers at a local scrapbook store. I am planning on getting some candy to put in these containers. What a sweet present for a sweet person--their teacher!! :)



The most important person in a child's life is their parents or grandparents. I decided to make little mini tri fold card for the children to let their parents or grandparents know how much they love them. Plus a little extra surprise will be included--well let's say it's a suprise :-) Thus why I didn't include the picture of the project (I will after the workshops have been completed!!)

I finally got to play with my new felicity collection last week/weekend (I have been on a roll with my projects!!). The reason I scrapbook is to record those special memories! This event I scrapbook is one of the rare events where it is just my dad and I doing something. I am a huge country fan and was so excited when I heard Reba was going to do a concert!! How blessed I was when my dad was able to get tickets from work!! How perfect the pictures I had match the colors of this collection. I hope you enjoy these 6 pages with rodeo and Reba McEntire concert pictures. These are my new favorite that I am adding to my album!

Extra pictures hidden--didn't want to do another layout espically since some of the pictures were repeats.

Now that I am done scrapping these I am so super excited about going to the Tim McGraw concert with my sister and possibly a few friends in a few week!!! Such fun time with special people!!!
