photo book

Yesterday i decided to try to be creative! i was in a cleaning mode the day before and found a couple outdated Making Memories catalogs...and decided to convert them over to a scrapbook! The inside is a 6-ring binder...perfect for new pages to be put in!
And of course i had to use the new baby boy matches the first scrapbook i made for little Oliver.

*love* the little embellishments on the black binder!

This is the second i converted...not quite finished with this one. i still need to add a strip or two of ribbon to the edge and also the inside pages.

lots of colour!! lots of pages cut to 7 1/2 X 8 1/2 work perfect! Can't wait to fill the pages with photos of little Oliver!!

a little baby book...

i have everything at home just waiting for me to put it together. i am planning on putting together a little baby book! i brought home some of the adorable baby boy paper and stickers and ribbons and now i just have to create the book! sometimes i can really procrastinate on projects!! but i have to get it started before our little baby comes!

so hopefully you will see photos coming soon!

i finished up my honeymoon album, or should i say "albums"...i had tons of photos that i wanted to put in the book, so i filled up three 8 1/2x 8 1/2 albums!! i will take some photos tonight and share!

change is a good thing

hello and happy friday to everyone!! yippee it's friday!! the weekend is here...

Just a little something i wanted to share with you all before the weekend...
Starting on Monday, Scrappy's is going to have a little sale!!
i have lots of paper 1/2 off and lots of little "things" were added to the 50% off table too!!

So make sure you stop in and check all that out!!

This week we've been busy trying to re-arrange the scrapbook store to make room for some greeting cards!! Brandon and i are going to buy out Zitnak's greeting cards!! We're all sad that their store is closing on main street...but we understand why they are choosing to do so.

So...the big move of all the cards is going to take place on Monday (or Tuesday...depending on weather i think!!)...and hopefully shortly after that we will be all organized with the cards! All of the cards are going to remain at only $ the only difference will be the location of the cards!!

a neat little idea...

Thought i would share a few little projects i have been working on for the baby's room. i found this idea to decorate clipboards and hang them on the wall from flickr. Rachel from the blog "i've got bling on my sewing machine" showed off her work space here...and i fell in love with this idea. She used her clipboards to hang her favourite magazine clippings and ideas...but i wanted to decorate the baby's room with 8 clipboards hanging in 2 rows. So off to Office Max i went on a shopping day and bought 8 clipboards. (and i also visited a few scrapbook stores for a few things!! because the adorable baby paper that i ordered hadn't arrived yet...and i was anxious to get started!!) The large space left on the top of each of the clipboards are for photographs. i have plans of hanging up photos of little Oliver once he his here! i will be more apt to change out those photos than the ones i put in frames!!

i have a few more to share...but those photos are on the home computer and i'm at work more to come!!

Where has the time gone??

Today i have been working on you know just how time-consuming it can be to count all that paper?? Not to mention all the "little" packages of things that we have!! But, i'm close to being done! Only have the 12x12 cardstock left to count...yippee!!

Counting everything left me lots of time for just thinking and daydreaming...and as i was counting the paper i noticed that i have lots of stuff from my initial order! Themed stickers, sports paper, black-n-white pattern paper, ribbon, albums...i was surprised at what i was noticing! But, that's not to say that everything i have ordered has not been a hit and flown out the door. Lots of papers only had 4 or fewer sheets left...that of course made me smile...i made the right choice when ordering!!
(ordering is lots of fun, but it's hard to decide what everyone is going to like!) the question for myself is...what to do with all this stuff that is not moving??

i guess that's why they invented the CLEARANCE TABLE!!

over the next couple of days i am going to make some little signs that will be hanging next to the product that i want to move!!

i have some brand new...absolutely girl and boy paper and embellishments coming in soon!

and i really want to make room for this super cute stuff! on the look-out for some really great SALES!!

i'll let you all know when it's "officially" a sale!!
