Sketchy Saturday


Every Saturday I post a Card and Layout Sketch for Inspiration or to get stuff done :) Sometimes I have a finished version that I did myself, but lately not so much so. 
However, If you make a layout or card from the sketches above, I would LOVE to see them! Link your pictures of them by posting the link in the comment section below. :)

The Sun you may want to cut in a larger size than a smaller size. Lots of little pieces for the "rays"

Google Friend Follow What Happened ??

So, I'm slow and behind on all the Blogger updates that have happened. Plus, during the updates I was having all sorts of issues, If you remember, with blogger. While Blogger seems to be working better, except for my scheduled posts. But I was just going thru my side bars as I felt they needed updating and I added 3 new ones! 
Can you Find them? 

So anyways, as I was doing so, I noticed Google Friends Followers block is there but NO followers :(   Of course, I went off and wasted so much valuable time that I won't get back, Thanks GOOGLE! I don't like your new searching ways. I want to search for what I typed in the search box, not what you think I might like that is similiar to what I am searching for!  Anyways, I found a few posts on Google Blogspot help. Not sure if its one entity or two seperate entities?! Looks like others are having this issue too. I guess for NON Bloggers Google Friend was removed. But I'm a Blogger, HELLO this is a Blog last time I checked!! So Where did my Google Friends go?  Do they still exist?  I'm so sad :(

Anyone know anything about this?

Until Next Time...
Happy Scrapping!

Deciding on What Machine is Best for you

I had a customer ask me how to explain how dies work and so I couldn't figure out how to explain the manual die cutting machine, I think I was just too tired and my brain was in its jello mode. I could explain how to basically use a die but I didn't feel it answered her question fully so off I went to research the words I needed to explain and while doing so i found some great Links about Die cutting machines! So I thought these are so great I have to share them!






This one HERE is for just Electronic die Cut machines.


This one Here is for just Manual machines


This One HERE is just Manual Machines too (includes more machines)


This one HERE is just Sizzix Manual Die Cut Machines


This one is the HERE covers both Electronic and Manual Die Cut machines!

Friday File Freebie

Today's File Freebie is fun photo props. Seems to be a trend going on. I see quite a few pics on Pintrest and my oldest has talked about it several time. So, I thought what fun it would be to Have Fun Glasses and Mustaches for some fun photo shoots. Maybe it will help you get a pic of your child that never lets you snap a good photo of them like one of my children. I never can catch him, well, I shouldn't say never but when i just want to grab one of those spur of the moment photos he either hides or ends up making a weird face or he moves and get a blur. Or Just have fun with family and friends and make memories :)

Jolee's Series Part 2 ~ School Days Theme ~


Continuing on with the Jolee's Series, we are on Part 2 ~ School Theme. Part One was Disney Princesses. If you are just joining us in the Jolee's Series you can start from the first one HERE and follow to the next ones. If you missed the first School Days Post that can be found HERE

Today's "The Jolee's School Days and HomeWork".

with the Jolee's "School Days" and "Homework" Packages I used and the Sketch I made and my finished layout!


Need Jolee's check out Rachel's yardsale HERE (Be Sure to "LIKE" her yardsale) or her Etsy Store HERE and her Facebook Fan Page HERE,(Be Sure to "LIKE" her fan page too), Let her know I, (The Scrapoholic) sent you, I highly recommend her, she's prompt on getting your orders out and very easy to communicate with too. You can find Jolee's in many places too. Most of mine I bought from Rachel, I have some I've had for years, some I have got from other sellers or from Jo-ann's too. But I'd try Rachel first :)

You can also check out my yardsale HERE (be sure to "like" my yardsale too) and my CTMH Website HERE for CTMH products and my Facebook Fan Page HERE (be sure to "like" my fan page too) 


Here is the Sketch I did using the Jolee's as the "embellishment" pieces.





I will share my finished layout next week, as not to interfere with your inspiration or ideas from the sketch. I find Sometimes when I see a sketch and the finished layout I want to duplicate it paper for paper and embellishments and all exact with what I have and then I get frustrated. Scrapbooking is supposed to be fun!!


Did you make a layout with either the sketch or the Jolee's School Days or Homework? Please Share your pic of it, I LOVE, just LOVE seeing others interpretations of my sketches or ideas, or inspiration! Please, Share a direct link in the comment section below.

Friday File Freebie 5-04

File Freebie is an old Collection. This is one of my first Collections of Files I made. I usually have them for Sale for $10 for all 3 Collections. As always, I have them available in both MTC and SVG. I have updated my MTC to the latest version (I think its the latest), so If you have not, I suggest downloading the SVG version. As, I always have, my freebies don't stay free for long. My Freebies do get taken down after a period of time.

Jolee's Series Part 2 ~ School Days Theme ~ School Bus 2

Continuing on with the Jolee's Series, we are on to Part 2 ~ School Days. Part One was Disney Princesses. If you are just joining us in the Jolee's Series you can start from the first one HERE and follow to the next ones. If you missed the first School Days Post that can be found HERE
Today's "The Jolee's Field Trip". Most of us have school pictures of taking the school bus, unless you were a "walker". I remember in elementary school I wanted to be a "walker" thought oh fun that must be until we moved when I was in the 7th grade and I had to walk 1/2 mile to school and home, but when we moved again in the 7th grade and I was a "walker" I only had to walk a few blocks over and it was much better.


I did a post on this The Jolee's Field Trip, but since its been awhile and I guess I never did post my finished layout?! I swear i remember doing the post but its no where to be found, so either its floating around lost in cyberspace or I had a very vivid dream that transferred to a "reality memory" or I'm just missing a few marbles LOL! So I thought, I'd refresh everyone's memory with the Jolee's Field Trip Package I used and the Sketch I made and my finished layout!




Need Jolee's check out Rachel's yardsale HERE or her Etsy Store HERE Let her know I, (The Scrapoholic) sent you, I highly recommend her, she's prompt on getting your orders out and very easy to communicate with too. You can find Jolee's in many places too. Most of mine I bought from Rachel, I have some I've had for years, some I have got from other sellers or from Jo-ann's too. But I'd try Rachel first :)



You can also check out my yardsale HERE and my CTMH Website HERE for CTMH products


Here is the Sketch I did using the Jolee's as the "embellishment" pieces. You could also use the sketch for a "Field Trip" theme too taking the bus and change the "title" to "The Bus Ride" or something to that effect.




Here's my finished Layout, without my pictures :(  Long story short my pictures have yet to be recovered from my external hard drive. I will be doing a lengthy some what sad, but hopefully helpful post about storing your digital pictures later this month. 
My Layout is slightly different than I planned because my stupid cricut won't cut with my MTC program anymore :(  so I couldn't do my title in the font I wanted or size I wanted. I used my Sizzix Classic Alphabet (which I love! I had sold my original after getting my cricut and I have to say I regretted selling some of the dies I did, but not all the ones I donated cause those are being enjoyed by kids at Children's hospital in LA, though I do miss a few, but knowing sick kids are getting to use them makes me ok with it) So recently, I had seen the alphabet everywhere and no matter where I tried to "bid" or buy it I was always too late :(  finally, posted and was able to do a trade with a scrappy friend on FB! :)  But overall I am happy with how it came out.




Did you make a layout with either the sketch or the Jolee's field Trip? Please Share your pic of it, I LOVE, just LOVE seeing others interpretations of my sketches or ideas, or inspiration! Please, Share a direct link in the comment section below. Please make sure its a "direct" link to your picture of the post or picture in a online photo album, and  I don't have to search a blog or photo album for it, I'd appreciate it. A "direct" link is your on the post, or picture itself in an online album and you copy the "link" in the address bar and paste it in the comment section below. Mr. Linky still isn't working for me when i post the "HTML" in my post. I haven't tried asking for help from Mr. Linky yet, probably should, I know they are very helpful because I've had issues before and he was quick to answer and help. Thanks for stopping by!






Stay Tuned for more Jolee's Series Part 2 School Days Theme. It will be either on Wed. or Thurs. (hopefully), every week!
