My poor neglected Blog

Yes I have neglected you blog I am so sorry. I post more on facebook and twitter now
than I do on you I am sorry. I have had trouble uploading photos to blogger.
See I have this laptop and since I have been having an issue with my legs again
they have been messing around with my medications, I stay in bed a lot I just
grab the laptop, hop on get my stuff done a little at a time as Im not too nauseas to call it a day. I am still for sake physical therapy, making myself get up and down a lot but I can tell you the wonderful world of technology has its conveniences.

John knew nausea was bad when I didn’t feel like scrapping when My amazing kit came in.They have been rearranging my meds since Christmas I tell you it never fails they get you situated then start changing stuff and get your system out of whack throws everything out of balance and here I am. BUT TO NO AVAIL THIS TOO SHALL PASS!!!!

THis kit is alll about LOVE and LOVEEEEEEEEEEE IT I AMMMMMMMMMMM doing. sooo so gorgeous.
We are undergoing so many changes right now at Scrapbook Obsessions. we are doing renovations and changing things around I guess kinda like my medication overhaul.. they are doing a “site overhaul” haha so they have all their past kits on sale over there you should check that out while you are there!! ya HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HUGEEEE
and you know THEY HAVE THE SLAM BANG AWESOME JAM PACKED kits with embellies and cardstock and schtuffff in those boxes of any place I have evah seeen! ya 14.99 CAnt beat that!

SO check this months one out! LOOK AT THIS!

So far this is all I have done with it. I got this box long long ago. Thought I would alter it. Wouldn’t this look beautiful for Valentines day (with something scrumptious and chocolatey in it!)

Here are a few more views of it:

I used in addition to the kit the Peppermint stick glimmer mist and Magistical Memories heart Chipboard on the top. I Heat Embossed it to get that grungy effect.
I gathered the ribbon and used my Tiny Attacher by Tim Holtz to stitch it with.
Ya I really do not sew. Do you have one of those Tiny attachers? if you don’t… YOU MUST GET ONE… THIS IS MY OFFICIAL ENABLER SENTENCE. GO NOW.. GO GET IT. I LOVE IT!
IT IS WORTH IT! BUY THE EXTRA STAPLES AT THE TIME YOU BUY THE TINY ATTACHER YOU WONT REGRET IT. Then you can do cute stuff with it like this. yes I just yelled all that at you for emphasis.

Ok one more picture.

So there ya have it. My one project.
AND YES I am a little bit slower than I used to be.. HEY HEY HEY.. no wise cracks about being 40 now and yeah I KNOWWWWWWW I am a year olddder and cut the smarty geritol commercials and wise cracks.
I Will BOUNCE BACK I always do. Just a minor set back. Silly medicines. we praise them when they do their job and make us well, but oh how we cry when they have their side effects to go along with what they are supposed to do (and the effects that go along with them and going off of them as well)

Also Thank you all for the prayers for Johns Grandmother (BIG NANA) I spoke with mom (Johns mom/nana) tonight They said she DID have a blood clot go to her heart they gave her blood thinners that are to dissolve it (?) That it caused her to have a stroke and heart attack. That was all the news she had gotten. so we are keeping Her in our prayers and all of The family back home in Hawaii that is taking care of her as well. Johns Mother is beside herself because she cannot be there as well as her other sisters that cannot be there at the hospital. So if you would remember them.




I used this months Kit from Scrapbook Obsessions, to make this project. Here is a tutorial to show you what I did. It wasnt that hard and made a cute little book.
You can see the kit HERE.

Using leftovers from this months kit from Scrapbook Obsessions.

I used this package of Making Memories Noteworthy Brads as my template.

These are the Brads Im talking about.

On the backside of a piece of patterned paper. ( I used Harvest Moon by Pink Paislee in this months kit) Trace around The templates outside edge. CUT OUT.

Using a bone folder or scoring tool. Score at the folds just like the brad packaging.

Punch a hole (large enough for a brad) half inch in from each side.

Using the stamp roller and the ink in this months kit as well as the Banana bliss from the add ons. I inked the white side of the album
to give it some character

Cut out the number of pages that you want to go in your album from scrap pieces left from your kit.
Measuring 4 and 1/2 by 3 and 1/2, SCORE 1 inch in on each page.

Punch holes in each one and put a large brad to hold them in place.

Cut the ribbon (in this months kit) In half and place along the edge by the brads.

Decorate your cover with 2 smaller scraps cut in rectangles then adhere a flower with the center taken out and replaced with a jewel. Add a glittery sparkly B and tiny Making memories letter stickers to spell your self.

Crop your photos to size of the pages. Embelish as wished.
I used rub ons that I rubbed on scrap paper and cut out along with flowers and epoxys to decorate my pages.

The last page I adhered to the back of the album so It wouldn’t FLOP open and tear easily.

You can find other projects and tutorials at Scrapbook Obsessions to go along with this months kit. The Design Team has worked hard to put lots of fun pages and projects up for inspiration.
