365 Days of Gratitude in 2014

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited to be involved with Mini Album Scraps "365 Days of Gratitude in 2014" junk journal swap.  I had so much fun making this mini and look forward to receiving someone else's creation back.  My album was mailed in today so I should receive a gratitude journal back in a couple of weeks.

Here is a video of my album.  Please be kind this is my first video and I know it's pretty lousy, but we all have a learning curve.

Here's a photo of the cover.

Blessing to all,
Anita aka Nit

Shabby Chic Swap

I know I keep saying that I am going to keep up with my postings but life is constantly in the way.  I am a private music teacher but once a year in the fall I work for a children's musical theater company.  I am the vocal coach and we have been working on The Wizard of Oz production since the end of August.  (By the way the show opens tonight!)  Anyway, if that is not busy enough I also have fall allergies, it appears, and that has triggered my asthma this fall and so I have been terribly sick since the first week of September.  Long story short (right!) I haven't been able to post.

I have manged to join a swap, for the first time, and make two cards. Mini Album Scraps runs great swaps on all sorts of categories.  I joined the cards swap for September and the theme was Vintage or Shabby Chic cards.  I have never made this style of card before so I was really intrigued.  Let me tell you it was so much fun...and challenging. Here are the cards I made.

I had so much fun and after sending my cards to the leader I got two gorgeous cards back!  I have always wanted to participate in a swap and I'm so glad I did.  I loved it so much I joined another swap.  This time it is in the junk journal category. The theme is 365 days to be grateful for 2014.

I recommend checking out Mini Album Scraps and join in the fun!

Blessing to all!

My Memories

Hi Everybody,

It has been ages and ages since I have posted on my blog.  I'm happy to be back and to share a mini album/junk journal I made. I titled it:

 "My Memories."
There are plenty of pages, pockets and tags to save all your special memories whether they are photos, tickets, written memories, or anything!  This album is 8 1/2 " x 5 1/2".  

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  I will be selling this album for $25.00.  It makes a great gift.

Junk Journal

Hi All,
I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post.  I have been super busy with my new grandson and several big crafting projects.  I'm starting a new business doing crafting parties at my home and doing crafting birthday parties for kids.  I've been making a lot of samples, started a Facebook page, and done some marketing research.

Anyway, I thought I would share one of my projects with you.  It is a Junk Journal.  I'm really happy with how it has turned out and will be selling them for $25.00.  For those of you who don't know a junk journal is a mini scrapbook/memory journal.  You can put pictures in it, journal memories, save movie ticket stubs or any number of things that mean something to you.  I have a junk journal and really have enjoyed it over the years. It doesn't have to be neat and beautified either.  You can just glue stuff in, or use washi tape and tape your stuff in it any old which way your heart desires!

Check it out:

The paper I got last year at Walmart and it is from Colorbok, I can't remember the name.  Used some stamps from Hero Arts and stickers from my stash.  The cover is from Zutter and I used my bind-it-all for the binding.  It is so much cuter in person than the pictures show.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a grateful day,
Anita aka Nit

With Joyful Gratitude

Hi Everybody,

Well here in MA it looks like spring is FINALLY try to show itself.  It is a beautiful sunny day and the crocus' are up and the daffodils are preparing to bloom.  I love, love, love spring.  It reminds me of Jesus' resurrection.

So onto today's card.  I am having a blast with digi stamps lately.  And this cutie patootie is from Tiddly Inks.  The stamp is called Celebrate Joyfully.  Isn't she darling?  The paper is from MME 6x6 pad called Sunny Side.  I love the colors and design of this paper.  The red is a card stock from the Paper Company I got at Michaels (I think!).  

These are close ups of the card.

And the inside.  This stamp is from the CardzTV stamp set Think Spring.

And here are the copic markers I used to color the girl.  Lovin' my copics lately too!

You are all going to crack up, this digi stamp is not a digi stamp at all.  It is from Tiddly Inks but it is one of the clear stamps sets I bought when I was purchasing other digi stamps.  Duh! I discovered my error when I tried to determine where the sentiment stamp on the front of the card was from.  It is from the Celebrate Joyfully clear stamp set.   Is this happening because I'm a new grandmother?  Does one loose their minds when that child is born?  Anyway, digi or clear stamps I just love these Tiddly Ink stamps.

Thanks for checking me out and please consider joining my blog and leaving a comment.  We all love the encouragement.

God bless and have a grateful day,
Anita aka Nit

New Blog Button

Testing 1-2-3!

Hi Everybody,

I've been working on designing a new blog header and a blog button.  I love how they both came out but can't figure out the url code that will link the button back to my blog.  Once I figure that out I have to get the grab button code put together.  This isn't as easy as I thought it would be, but I've sure have fun designing the button and my new blog header.  What do you think?
