AussieMeg OMG a PINEAPPLE LUMPS chocolate bar?! At least now my family will know what to send me for Christmas I got one of my American friends hooked on pineapple lumps too, so maybe I can get them to send her a bar...
I've hardly done any crafting this month, somehow. Or maybe I haven't accounted for what I've done. Most likely I just haven't been finishing anything.
But I did work on a lot of Christmas cards this week and I FINISHED many of them, so I'll actually have something to share and count And I had an idea for a fun scrapbook page for my highlight book, so I'm hoping to make time to make some pages this weekend.
I'm telling you all to commit myself to coming back and sharing ASAP!
Love the design of girl's night out page and all the fun embellishments. Especially the rope nylene The Sneaky page is adorable and I like the font you used for the title. The Merry Christmas page is very pretty with the lace diecuts. Geneva Giant is adorable. I will probably be stealing this page layout.
joyfulnanna cute pages about your hobby! Great idea.
Cute little boy page, I love the space paper.
Good job scrapping the little moments.
AussieMeg another awesome PL page! I LOVE the snowboard picture! Gorgeous Virgo page! I'm amazed at how well you do at layering!
mom , great designs and color choices on both the fishcamp and the aggie pages! Where I live, it's the Utah State Aggies!
gramma LOVE the legend title and the fun baseball paper.
ETA: Sorry I couldn't tag gramma and joyfulnana

Sharing the Christmas cards I finished this week, mostly for the Caring Hearts card drive. They're very simple. I mostly used papers I inherited from my step MIL from the 90s and early 2000s, and mostly not my taste. I tried to use them up as best as I could so I cut the 12x12 into 6 card panels + 3 smaller pieces, most of which I also managed to use.
AussieMeg I like the new travel pages! You got some great nighttime photos and they're fascinating to examine. I'd try a Vietnamese pizza! BTW I've borrowed the idea of duplicating a landscape photo in the background and reducing the opacity on a couple of pages in my book. It's quite effective when you don't want to add much to the page but it needs *something*
craftymom101 love your page about your beach bums. The cut file is lovely and your embellishment clusters are impeccable, as always. Those Thickers are really fun and I like how they echo the black and white strip at the left side.
I needed to get a quick and easy one in, so I grabbed a simple template and some old photos ..... 'Template Mix 2' by Pretty In Green and 'Sugar & Spice' kit by Day Dreams 'n Designs. The fonts used in the title are Ruritania and Perry Gothic.
I am SOOO far behind in commenting! Going to start on page 8 and work backwards.
mom I love your clean and simple style, classic design pages. Perfect colours for your masculine subject(s). Which college is he attending? Is he taking agriculture? (We call agriculture students "aggies" here). Can't go wrong with stars.
Love all your Viet Nam photos, AussieMeg. Your photo book really looks like a travel brochure.
Thanks again craftymom101 for sharing that cut file. I really want to try it. My page won't look as amazing as yours, but thanks for the inspiration!
Glad you had time and inspiration to scrap, dasmith2. The baby page is really sweet, and I love the Homecoming LO's. Great mix of colours and patterns. And that prom LO is GORGEOUS!!! Love all the soft blues and the mix of florals.
Heading off to Flickr to leave love for those I missed over there.
Then I need to venture back to page 7. So much creativity to ogle. So little time!
grammadee , I am also so far behind in comments. I hope to catch up this weekend.
This is for sketch #23. It worked out for me to use a whole stack of photos that didn't really relate to each other except they were Girl Scout photos through the years. Not much embellishing on this one, but I do like the results. Growing up through Girl Scouts
#1 Sketch 23 w/twist 5, #3 out of normal scrapping, #4 Outdoors, #6 not my photos, #12 Stickers, #13 pop dots, #44 3 fonts=2, #53 rectangle, #62 fussy cut, #65 shrink photos=4, #67 pick one stickers=8, #95 someone I love +heart=2 one page completed and shared =30 points
This next one is all IACB (Geralyn Sy) templates and word art. I hate the word "vibes" but I'm tolerating it here. I think I'll probably shrink both pages slightly to give more breathing room around the bottom edge - I have to allow for blurb to chop randomly from top or bottom, you never know, so I like to give them plenty of white space.
I have some cards to share too: Simple card for Halloween-ish time. I just liked the paper and I think my friend will too. The die is slightly modified from a SSS kit - it had a swing, which is easy to snip off. The paper is Ella & Viv. Spooky forest Halloween card by jo.blackford, on Flickr
The Sizzix (boo, hiss) haunted mansion die cut I had talked about in a thread on the main board, now a finished Halloween card. Another Ella & Viv background. I colored vellum with a marker for the windows. They're actually sandwiched in 3 layers of die cuts. I hand cut the little hills to cover up a bit of the die cut I don't love. Thought the vellum moon was kind of fun.
and a happy sloth, Hello Bluebird stamps. I made some critter cards for Cardtober samples - not sure if I should count them this month if I'm sharing them next month. But anyway, this one was just a whim. I thought he was pretty cute. Critter cards by jo.blackford, on Flickr
Thanks And thanks for all the Xmas card love on Flickr grammadee . I left you some replies too.
