Last week QVC had a scrapbooking Today's Special Value on. I love when they do that and so far I have purchased everyone of their Scrapbooking TSV's. This Scrapbooking kit not only offered every thing from the 12x12 and 8x8 albums to the embellishments and every thing in between but it also offered Scrapbook Essentials digital software. As far as Digital scrapbooking goes I have said many times that I would never go digital as far as scrapping my pages. Guess what I did last night? :)
Okay, I know this is very simple looking but it was my very first page. :)I am still learning more on how to do digital scrapbooking. But with the knowledge that I have right now I could make an entire scrapbook within 2 hours! In the program that I received I had 259 background papers to choose from and lot of embellishmets but of course not every thing that came in it is my style. So I will need to buy more stuff eventually. The papers and embellishments are from S.E.I and I purchased the wonderful Mirage designs. The software is from Fotofusion.
Here is my second attempt at making a page. Still quite simple. However, when I scrapbook the original way of scrapbooking I still keep it simple. Well, maybe I add more embellishments and journaling. :) Anyway, both of these were printed out in the size of 8X8 using white card-stock and an Epsom printer. They look awesome in person and now all I have to do is trim the white card-stock away from them and slip them in to one of my 8x8 scrapbooks. I will be making a duplicate of every page that I make so that I can have a book to give to Molly and one to Darcy. Don't get me wrong. I am not giving up scrapbooking the original way. No way! But I am having lots of fun doing it the digital way too.
I Am A "Gluer".
I officially became one of the "Gluers" for UHU Glue early last week. I am looking forward to making more projects, cards and scrapbook pages using their awesome glue products. The UHU glue that I have used so far has been great! Lucky me for having a few stores in my area who also carry UHU glue. :) I hope that you will visit their bog frequently and check out the projects being made bythe Gluers and the products that UHU has to offer.
I have had a very busy week this week so please forgive me if I am chatting too much. I finally made my very first apple pie. Thank you, Dottie for sending me the recipe. :) I'm not sure which night it was that I made it but it came out tasting so delicious that both Wayne and I ate it all! Yes, I am still gaining weight.UGH! I have a few photos to show you. Try not to laugh too hard. Okay?
This is what it looked like before I put it into the oven. A you can see I did not do a very good job at making the top of the pie crust look very pretty.
It does not look too bad after it was baked. But I am glad that I was not making it for company. :)
Wayne and I could not wait to dig in. Of course it was still very hot so this is what it looked like on our plates. Ha-ha. I had a lot of fun making my very first apple pie and will be making another one soon. But I have got to learn how to make the top crust fluted better so that it looks pretty. By the way I now consider baking a craft. :)
If your short on time then you may want to step away from your computer. :) I have a few more things that I would like to chat about.
This past Thursday I went to a card making class at Stamping Memories. We made some lovelyy Kinkade cards and I hope to get them posted up on my bolg tomorrow. It was so wonderful to be out stamping with other women. I do not take many classes any more but I think that I will be in the future. As a matter of fact last month I signed up for a scrapbook class at Scrappin'Soul Sisters this coming Tuesday. I will be making a book to put photos in of Wayne and I at York Beach Maine. Do any of you go classes often? I love stamping and paper crafting but I like it even more when I am with other women who like it as much as I do. We always seem to have a good time.
Okay just one more thing. Yesterday I went to a Tupperware party. The reason that I am even bringing this up is because it is the first one that I have been to in at least 20 years! I had a blast! There were about14 of us there and all of the women were such fun. So I bought some Tupperware and I booked a party! I have not had a party of any kind in my home in at least 2o years. Okay so this was not craft related but I had such a good time so I wanted to share it with all of you.
I hope that you had as good a weekend as I have had so far. Back to doing more laundry and cooking for me. Happy Sunday. Smile. :)
