Scrappy Moms Stamps May Release - Day #1

Hello Everyone and Happy Friday!! I am SO ready for the weekend :)  

Welcome to another Scrappy Moms Stamps Release!!  I'm so excited for this release because once again the sets are absolutely adorable!  Check them both out below: 

So I decided to use the Gone Buggy stamp set today for my first project! Check it out below

I just ABSOLUTELY love how it turned out :) And the TiddlyInk digi image is perfect for so many sentiments on this set.  

I also recorded a video for this card, I apologize that I didn't "test" the camera before recording the camera.  For some reason, I sound like daffy duck :(  Enjoy!

Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Mother's Day

Happy Tuesday Everyone! 

I know that its SUPER late in the evening and I'm super tardy to posting my project....its been quite a busy and hectic day.  Our puppy Gem had an interview at a doggy day camp and overnight camp facility locally.  Needless to say, I was much more nervous then Gemma was ;)  But she did very well and got 'approved' to say for day and overnight camp!  HOORAY! One less thing to worry about when we are on our trip to orlando!

There I go rambling  On to the real reason that you are here, Scrappy Mom's TTC!  For this week, we had to create a mother's day project!  Absolutely perfect timing to get any last minute cards and projects done before this Sunday! 

You can see on yesterday's post that i've created a mini brag book for my mother in law but I couldn't send it without a card :)  

Enter in todays project, a card to accompany my mini brag book!

I apologize that all of the images recently have been red head but being that Kirie has red hair, I think its only appropriate :) 

Hope you enjoyed! Be sure to check out the other design teams projects on the Scrappy Mom's Blog!

Back with a video?!?! What?!?!

Yup....crazy that I have a video up right?!?! hahaha, I wanted to show off a mini brag book that I've been working on for mother's day gifts :)  I thought you might want to see it before all the pictures cover up the pages.  Its a very simply brag book, but its perfect for my mother in law or mom to carry in their purse and "brag" about their first grand child :D

I used the Echo Park Bundle of Joy and coordinating Dots & Stripes paper pads to create the album, as well as your basic Kraft paper.  I'm using the binding method Stack the Deck by Laura at Following the Paper Trail. <<<

This is simply a preview video...I'm working on a tutorial but can only film while the wee little one is napping so that you don't hear her giggling, yelling, watching disney movies in the background ;) 

So take a look below! and check back soon for the tutorial! 

Be sure to check back tomorrow for a new Terrific Tuesday Challenge for Scrappy Mom Stamps!
