I've never made a fleece blanket, but they sound like fun - especially since I don't sew! Do they come in kits or do you just buy the fleece and get to work?

They do come in kits, but if want to customize the size or the design on the fleece, you just buy it and get to work - that's what I did. A few years ago I found a 10-yard roll of fleece with a design for my favorite baseball team on clearance, and this past weekend I finally cut into it and bought two yards of dark gray fleece to back it with.

Hello dear friends, I plan on getting some more of my cards cut on my Big shot. I had all the white cut but I realized I had cut them out of paper in a pack that was white but it really looked beige so I had to re cut them. I still need to do the scallops circles too.
MY friend & I aren't going to meet till next week. I haven't really worked on anything scrappy for a couple days.

My DS and DH are leaving today for a fishing trip. They will be back Sunday night and I leave Monday morning for a week in Tampa, FL at my DDs with my BFF.
I love to dig in and craft and make huge messes when no one is home but me. If i want to get up and work on stuff at 2am, I'm not gonna bother anyone. Hoping to get my SIL quilt done, some cards made, burlap wreath and Christmas trees made, who knows what done. And clean it up, and pack for my trip. Getting tired just typing it. LOL

I am going to an all day crop saturday...all day after a soccer game, drop off son at grandmas, n get a quick lunch. HA! Really though, I expect to be able to crop from @ 11:30 til 8, and should get lots done. I reviewed all the "completed" pages in my iris bin and pulled some that I need to make titles/journal on. I just decided that much of my journaling and titling I will be doing on my computer-ie. typing titles in cool fonts, printing them out, fussy cutting them, then putting on cardstock and re-fussy cutting them with a border of cardstock underneath. I just ordered a new printer on HSN yesterday, it was a value of the day on easy pay n was only $90. Three payments of $30 won't hurt at all!! I haven't had a printer in some time, so this will be nice!!! It is a HP and prints photo-quality, so I can use it for photo printing at home! Yay me!! Should be here in 9 days!!! I will probably run out of ink in 5 days after that! LOL!!

Yay for a printer! I will say that I have seen several people on here post about the importance of using the same brand of photo paper as your printer. I personally don't print photos at home, but lots of people say if you have a canon printer, use canon paper, etc.

Good advice about the photo paper...i actually have never printed a photo at home so this will be an experiment!! I think it will help when i want an 8x10 for an LO, I usually print everything at Sam's Club, but only do 4x6's unless I have a specific LO in mind that I want an enlargement for. I also usually cram many photos on a page...I can't edit...What if I forget that Juanie used to make that face, wear that cute outfit, have that haircut? Very few of my pages feature single phtots. When i do them, I like them, but then I think of all the wasted space where i could have put another pic! One exception is this page, it is so stand alone!!:

I have found the exact thing with my paper stash, Linda! I have tons of cardstock, but never the right color. Why? LOL I buy lots of brights, then choose papers to go with photos that are muted colors!! I guess I always assume that I will need the brights, esp with a small child as my main scrap topic...




I understand Chris. I have done the same thing by buying lots of certain colors for the kids pages. You are right about not being the right shade. lol

I love seeing what everyone is working on! I didn't get any scrapping done over the weekend but had today off for Columbus Day so I ordered a bunch of pictures from Snapfish and have been working on journaling so that I can finish a few layouts in progress. I will be eager to see the soccer layout that was mentioned. I scrap a lot of soccer layouts and am always looking for new ideas!





Glad you are getting some journaling done on some unfinished pages. )I just got a photo order in last week. I love when they come
in.

These are fabulous! I love the way you added the pics to the hexagons. Your baby is so adorable. I left you some love.
I just thought of a title I have seen.
