SCT Sampler January

I was so excited to hear that Scrapbook & Cards Today was putting together a sampler subscription. I signed up as soon as I heard about it! I got my sampler on January 15.

It came packaged in a bag with this adorable hello beautiful card. On the back of the card it outlined who the products were supplied by.

This is just a sampling of what I received. There were sample sized papers, vellum, stickers, die cuts, chipboard & acrylic pieces and other embellishments. It also came with a stamp,and die set that is so cute.

There is a great assortment of goodies with plenty of product to make many things! I made these 2 cards using items from my sampler pack.

There is a lot of product in the small package! My favourite item in the pack was the gold sequins! I put that stuff on everything!

Progress Made-Challenging Myself

*This post may contain affiliate links. πŸ™‚

I have been trying to make things for myself. It was a sort of New Years resolution . I am working on my 12 Month Journey Of Craftiness. You can follow it on my Facebook page or on Instagram. (#12monthjourneyofcraftiness #scrapatini)

I have specific things that I want to accomplish for myself in a crafty way this year. My goal is to complete the following goals each month:

βœ… 2 scrapbook layouts

βœ… 4 cards

βœ… try at least one new product or technique

βœ… complete at least one PHD (project half done)

βœ… to have more fun, contests, and interaction with my followers

It is already January 20 and since I have made my journey a priority, I have completed my monthly goal except for finishing a PHD! I am working on that PHD but I have a ways to go to complete it.

The new product that I have tried this month is coloured pencils from Prismacolor. They are amazing, very high quality colouring pencils. They have a great lay down of colour and are very smooth.

The Prismacolor pencils are available here >>>Prismacolor Pencils .

They are currently on a super sale at Blitsy for approximately 87% off! Regular price $93.66 CAD but on sale for $12.49 CAD. *Sale can end at any time so if you want them go get them now!

I have completed 2 layouts. Both are of my terrific and cute sons from our 2014 Hawaiian vacation although I didn’t theme them as vacation layouts. I used some gorgeous Wild Whisper Designs Paper (company from Calgary, Canada! Yay!) and themed them more as a self-esteem layout.

I have also completed several cards and a wine bottle tag.

Have you make a crafty New Years Resolution? Are you taking time to do what you enjoy? Have you made something that you are proud of? Let me know!

12 Month Journey Of Craftiness

I love to make things! I know you have heard it from me before but lately most have my crafting has been for others. I have decided that the new year will bring a renewed love of crafting just for me. I realized that since July most of my projects have been for others, whether it be custom orders or gifts.

I made this layout at least a couple of years ago! Notice anything about it? It has no picture! It has been sitting in my To-Do pile for quite some time. This is what inspired my “12 Month Journey Of Craftiness Event on my Facebook page. Scrapatini on Facebook

I hope you will join me and maybe take your own Journey Of Craftiness in the new year! Happy Crafty New Year!

Me Time

Lately I have been working on so many projects for the craft sale that Scrapatini will be participating in, that I have not had any chance to make something just for me. I feel a bit overwhelmed and excited at the same time in regards to the craft sale but as much as I love crafting I realize that I also haven’t scrapbooked for my own pleasure since at least the spring. I decided that today was the day to spend a little time working on a few pages of our Dominican holiday. 

We stayed at The Nickelodeon Resort over spring break and had the most fabulous time! We saw monkeys! I just had to scrapbook those monkeys ( and my monkeys!) I decided on some pocket scrapbooking instead of my usual traditional style of regular scrapbooking. Here is just a peek at what I have been working on.

I still have to add the titles, journaling and dates but it is a good start. Pocket scrapbooks are a great way to get a vacation or special event done in a quick yet appealing way.
