Scrapbook Bakery

Wow! It's been so long since my last post! It's amazing how quickly time gets away from you!

I just wanted to stop by and post some photos from projects I created from Scrapbook Bakery products! I was so honored to be asked by Heather to be the designer of the month! I was shocked when she first asked me because I do not feel that I belong here with these "famous people"!! It was such an honor to have Heather think that I belonged here! Thanks Heather for believing in me!! : )

I created some projects from the May Green Thumb kit. It was so much fun to play with these bright products! I love the new American Crafts papers, so much fun!! This is the kit that is available at Scrapbook Bakery. The kit includes a clay pot which is not shown here with the image.

I wanted something fun to create for a Mother's Day gift and so I decided to decoupage this pot. I used all of the coordinating papers from American Crafts to create this fun design.

I took pencils and wrapped them in the paper to create flowers. I used Making Memories chipboard for the "blooms". I thought the JellyBelly beans would be a fun treat for Mom. I know how much my mom loves JellyBelly!!!

These are a few of the cards that I created. I thought this might be a fun gift to give Mom along with the cute clay pot. What mom couldn't use some cards?!

I love this layout of Kayla. I tried to make a "Spring-y" page but I just loved this picture of her in the snow so much with this paper that I decided I had to use it!! Fun paper!!!
Finally, this layout is of our new baby Audrey! I plan on using the pocket for journaling of her very scary entry into this world. We have quite a story to tell and I want her to know all about it some day.
Whoops, forgot to include a card with the others for mom!!! (This is my favorite!!)

Well, as I said I was so honored to be choosen by Heather for the Designer of the month on Scrapbook Bakery's website. Even though I am a Designer for the site, I'm not always sure of my talents especially to be included with the likes of all the wonderful ladies who followed before me!!

Since I am so excited to be a part of this I would like to offer those of you who read my blog to post a comment and a name will be choosen on May 8 to win a wonderful gift from Scrapbook Bakery!!! I'm so exicted!! Okay everyone, start commenting! Can't wait to hear from you and to see who will win!!!!!!!! :)

I love your idea using the pot and pencils- so cute! This would also make a great Teacher Appreciation gift! I really like the colors in the kit this month- very Springy!

Love your idea with the flower pencils very cute and good for a project for a bunch of girls. I also love what you did with the rest of the kit. Thanks for sharing.
