Baby Girl Flip Book

Posted by emileehathaway on September 30, 2008

I know … I know … I was so good for 3 days and then I totally fell off the wagon 🙂  If only I had time to finish all the projects I start and then had more time to post them 🙂

I have 2 cousins having baby girls and I saw this flip book a while back and knew this would be the perfect baby gift!  Who wouldn’t want ONE place to store all the fun, special little things that you get in preparation for having a baby, plus it can be a little brag book.  Here is the link to Amy Celona’s blog where I found this book.  As you can see from the pictures this book has SO many layers, but that is what is so fun about it!


Thanks for stopping by and looking!  If I can I’ll try to finish a Halloween project tonight and post it in the morning!

What Time Is It?

Posted by emileehathaway on September 21, 2008

That is usually the question I ask myself about 11:30 pm or 12:30pm when I’ve been playing in my craft room all night.  So to answer that question I got myself a clock!

I found this at Robert’s about 2 months ago on their clearance table for like $3.  I was so excited!  Here is what I came up with, I used my new stamps and some old paper and some old In Colors … just before they retired.  I Loved purely pomegranate and knew that I wanted use. 

What do you think?

Stamps: Upsy Daisy, Best Yet
Paper: Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, River Rock DP, WW
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Goodies: Circle Punches, Scallop Punches, Photo Corners Punch, brads, ribbon, pop ups, rubons for the numbers

Scrapbook Sunday #13

Posted by emileehathaway on September 21, 2008

I am so happy to posting another scrapbook Sunday!  I have wanted to sit down and scrapbook for a long time, but just haven’t either found the time or inspiration.  🙂  Here is what I came up with today.  I love this picture of my little guy!  He is so stinkin’ Cute!  But I know all parents think that of their little ones.  It’s hard to tell in this particular picture, but we were getting ready to go to the baseball game last year on the 24th and Kyler is helping Mom fold laundry.  He was actually laying in the laundry basket when Itook this picture.  Somehow probably with the help of his dad he climbed in there to relax with all the nice warm clothes out of the dryer.  That is actually the one thing I LOVE about scrapbooking!  I probably would totally forget that memory if I had not grabbed my camera and hurried and taken a picture. 

I stole the layout from MichelleTX on splitcoast.  I really really like the layout and I could use my new scalloped edge punch so I figured it was the best of both worlds!

Have a super Sunday, stay tuned, I have another post ready for you … it’s of a modified element I made a while back (but didn’t have a camera to take a pic and show you.)

Thanks for stopping by!

September’s Stamp Club

Posted by emileehathaway on September 20, 2008

And she’s Back … I finally found my camera!  Yeah!  I cannot tell you how relieved I am about it too!  They say you loose 10% of your brain when you have a baby and it takes about a year to get it back, but I have to say I am fairly confident I have lost over 25% and there is no sign of it ever returning.  LOL!  But in all honesty it’s not really that funny 🙂  If I had one wish it would be to not be so scatter brained!

On to more important things … September’s Club!  It feels like FOREVER since we have met, but here is what we made for club, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bella Rose paper and the Flower Fancy set.  I know I didn’t combine the two together, but even side by side they look so good!

I will try to post again tomorrow with Scrapbook Sunday and a seriously fun project I made a while ago.

Thanks for Looking!

Super Cool SU! News

Posted by emileehathaway on September 9, 2008

So a super cool announcement:  SU now has online ordering, so if you need to order something in the middle of the night when you are being completely inspired, you can go to my website and order and it will be shipped to your house!  Check out my stampin’ up website:  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask!

OK, and now I have a confession, not that this should surprise any of you since you know how brain dead I have become … but … I cannot find my camera.  I know that I had it when we went on vacation last week, but now it is no where to be seen.  Let’s just say my husband (though not shocked) is seriously upset about it.  I am officially on the hunt for it.  Hopefully I will be able to find it tonight and share some sneak peaks for club, or anything else that I have made recently.  To be honest, that’s why I haven’t posted anything but the flower fancy card because I had already taken that picture.  So, cross your fingers that I find it!
