Where did 2011 go? I know I say that every year, but I can't help it. This year I have enjoyed my scrapbooking home, Birds of a Feather and the friends I have made there. I haven't scrapped as much as I have wanted to, but I think that will be the case from here on out! haha! I have, however, made a few projects that I have liked and thought I would do a recap post and share some of my favorite layouts, cards and projects.
This layout took a LONG time and was a lot more work than I anticipated, but I LOVE it! Lots and lots of stitching. I also used some of my satin flowers that I started making this year.Next up is a layout I created using Cosmo Cricket. Love that company! I had fun with the banner and the grid style design.
I lifted a layout by a fellow BOAF friend, Linda, and came up with this layout. I have recently fallen in LOVE with Jillibean Soup. I love how easy their papers are to use and all the stickers and die cuts that make embellishing super easy. I just love Maddy's curls in these pictures.
The Ranch. I made this for me and LOVE it. The pictures are of my Grandpa's homestead that has been in the family for over 140 years. Inside is a lot of the history of the homestead, which I grew up calling 'the ranch'. My mom fell in love with it so I gave it to her on the agreement it would come back to me one day.
I made this layout for my Dad. My Grandpa passed away a little before Christmas last year. I knew this layout would mean a lot to my dad. I used a sketch by Jill Sarginson, that she created off of one of my layouts.
I had a lot of fun with the Cosmo Cricket DeLovely line. Such bright, cheery and fun colors!
I love this color combo. I love how the papers went so well with Maddy's outfit.
I started Project 12 in January. I have enjoyed it SO much and plan on continuing it next year. These are two of my favorite layouts from my album so far.
I think its the colors in this one that I love and the embossed envelope.
I made a few cards but still feel that I struggle. Once I find a good design I tend to use and reuse and reuse and abuse and reuse.... ;-)
I made a few minis. This one was for the Creative Cuts & More blog hop. I had a blast with it. I used mostly Echo Park papers and embellies for it. Fun, fun, fun. If you want to see the inside, go here.
I made this one for the Christmas Bazaar I participated in. I took one of the kid sold board books and cut it apart. It was hard to sell. I just love this Kaiser Kraft line. The colors are so pretty!
I made one of these for my mom and one for my mother in law. I got the idea somewhere in blog land.
This is one of my all time favorite things I have made. I found this piece at a thrift store. It was light wood color and had a mirror. I painted it and added doodied it up. It was SO much fun!I made a few of these 'catch alls'. Or at least that is what I call them. My mom uses hers to keep a few pencils and notepads by her telephone.
Do you have favorite projects/creations from 2011? I'd love it if you linked me up so I could check them out!
Thank you for stopping by! I wish you all a very Happy New Year!
