Transformations Blog Hop

Welcome to Club Scrap's Transformations blog hop. So glad that you're here! If this is your first stop, please go to the first stop to check the list of bloggers so that you don't miss out on any of the awesome projects.

This month's kit has lots of luscious, soothing colors. I wasn't really sure at first what I wanted to do with the kit. I really didn't want to cut it up. But then I got to thinking about how I've been in denial this past year that my kids are growing/grown up. However, this past summer my oldest nephew was married and it hit me that out of 6 kiddos only the youngest child still lives at home and she is a sophomore in high school. The next oldest is a sophomore in college. Yikes! I'm losing my slave labor chore helpers. Since it has been 25+ years since I've had to do all the chores around the house (6 kids help a lot with getting chores done) I decided to do up a booklet to help me remember just what needs to be done each day. I chose a mini album that I have in my Silhouette library. This one has 6 envelopes with tabbed cards. I used a mix of papers, stamps and embellishments that came with the kit to cut out and decorate my chore card system. The day stamps and the line/journaling stamp are retired Club Scrap stamps from Weekly Chronicles and Just Dandy kits respectively.

Hope you enjoy my project!

These are the pieces.

All put together. I couldn't find instructions anywhere on how to put this mini book together. Took just a wee bit of time figuring it out.

The cards after being stamped. I haven't added the chores yet. Didn't think you needed to see my lists since I know you have lists of your own. Just fill in the blank. :)

 A close up of the envelope pages with tabbed cards.

A picture of the front cover. I used a self-adhesive Velcro circle to hold it closed. The coin is from the kit and the Gingko leaf was stamped and then colored over using the stencil that came in the kit and popped up with those nice little foam squares.

And the final picture of it open.

Thanks for looking! Your next stop on the hop is Kay

Just a note & a peek

So sorry I haven't been posting anything. I've been busy... just not so much with crafts. I've been sick and I also spent a week with the grands helping their daddy while mommy had a job to do. I'm better and will be here tomorrow with my project for Club Scrap's Transformations blog hop. Please come back tomorrow!

Great Grandma Love

I adore this picture of my mil with her newest great grand daughter. Such a sweet picture.

I used a template from Big Photos Templates 2 by Scrapping With Liz and Peachy Keen kit by Bella Gypsy. The grungy edge is from my stash and the teal arrow is also from Bella Gypsy. Not sure which kit it came from.

I received some new pictures of my youngest grand daughter and had to do a layout of her. For this layout I used Kimeric Kreations Color Me Happy kit and template by Fiddle-Dee-Dee from this month's Daily Digi Files. Cheryl's templates haven't been revealed yet. The bead scatters and edge overlay are from my stash.

Feeling Fallish

I'm looking forward to seeing the leaves turn colors this year. We had a nice long hot summer and now I'm ready for Autumn. Autumn is my favorite time of year with cold nights and warm days. Today's layout uses a photo of my oldest grandson from last year.

Template is Fall Group Template15 by Scrapping with Liz. The kit is Feeling Fallish by Bella Gypsy.

Another layout of the birthday ballerina.

I used a template from Spring Thing set by Amber Morrison also known as Southern Serenity Designs. Everything used in the layout is from the kit Don't Rain on My Parade by Sweet Shoppe Designs. It was in the June 2015 Daily Digi file except for the 3 butterflies which are from my stash.

Thanks for looking!
