Happy Monday y'all!

As promised, I'm back with a little add-on to *Spring Sun and Easter Fun*! (checking pulse and in shock that I'm here ... I am actually here!)

Know what?  I love my peeps!  Yup.  That would be y'all!  *sigh*

A special thank you to my darling granddaughter, Kate (and her mommy) for the use of her sweet little peep loving self this past Easter.  *big smile*

I have not attempted anything hybrid in quite some time and thought printing out the journal cards I've included in the add-on to be a great place to start for a couple of reasons, the most important of which is to make sure that you are getting quality product! *squee*

As declared in my TOU, everything I design is created and saved at 300 ppi (pixels-per-inch) for superior quality printing.  I printed the six journal cards on White Card Stock (110 lb weight) by Georgia-Pacific.  I'm a little embarrassed to admit just how long I've had this, barely, used package!  I can guarantee you that I shall be using it much more often now! *yay*

While I am not officially taking part in Becky Higgins, Project Life, I love the genius behind it and with the sensation the 3X4 journal/fill-in cards have made across Scrapland, I have thought of many uses for these little gems aside from slipping them into photo sleeves:

  • Gift Card (punch a hole through the top and attach to a gift bag or wrapped package with Baker's Twine, ribbon or string)
  • Thank You Card (tuck inside of a purchased or homemade small envelope to mail, hand deliver or place inside of your mailbox to let your mail carrier know what wonderful service they are providing :)
  • Memo/Fancy To-Do List (I'm going to be using mine for this during the month of May!  I already have them cut and stacked on my desk and they look so purdy ;)
  • Dinner Place Cards (conversation starters, share one of your recipes on the back, unleash your creative genius ;)
  • Love Notes (slip one into your hubby's pocket before he leaves for work or into your children's lunch boxes for an extra dose of love and/or encouragement)
  • Inspirational Refrigerator Magnets (print your favorite quote, scripture or motivational message, laminate and use a peel-and-stick magnet or glue one onto the back.  Decorate to your heart's content and give a few as gifts!)
  • Coupons/Rewards (an extra hug, a foot massage, back rub, extra treat,  extra points toward a prize, one less chore, a car wash, solo shopping trip with Mom, a mani-pedi, not to mention multiple uses for homeschooling families :)

I'm sure that y'all have many other fabulous ideas in mind too!  I'd love to hear them. *smile*



Journal Cards are printed out and ready to cut!



Above, you see the journal cards after they have been cut with my 
Fiskars 12-inch Cutter.  I was not happy with the job done, but then
I've not used the cutter for quite a long time and even though the 
blade cartridge was new when last used, it had some serious
issues.  Come to think of it, my cutter has never cut decent straight
lines.  There has always been a bit of a curve/jag on one end.  Now, I'm
not sure whether the cutter itself has an uneven spot or if I need to
chalk it up to operator error!  *Ha, ha* Anyhoo, they are sweet
nonetheless and I shall definitely have fun using them!  I'd love to
know what your recommendations are for a good quality cutter.


A quick reminder that the May Blog Train departs tomorrow, May 1st!  My post should come through about the same time as this one today.  Hope you enjoy the download!

Have a fabulous week scrapping and making new memories everyone!


Sorry, this link has expired. Will be adding to my shop soon. Thank you for taking the time to stop by!

Bon Scrapatit!

Enjoy and remember, it is scrap-happy hour 24/7 in Scrapland!

Hello my sweet Scrapland friends!  Hope this posting finds y'all happy, healthy and full of scrap!

I've truly not meant to be away for so long, however, the past two years have found me doing just that more often than not.  This post shall be short and sweet and, by way of future posts, I shall share with you my current plans for Bon Scrapatit Designs and a little bit about what is behind my not being able to spend quality, productive time on the computer!   

No novel.  Just a fairly quick synopsis of my life this side of the screen and how it is changing for the better after an aha moment as to what the real root issue was that kept me in a daze (I suppose confused could go right along with that, eh?  He ... he ...), unable to focus, far too easily distracted (even though I've had plenty to keep me from what I love doing the most) and not even having the desire to sit here for days/weeks at a time.  OMGosh!  Is this me I am talking about?  Yup.  It sadly is, but no more of that.  Uh, uh.  Nope.  No way Jose!  (Sorry Jose, nothing personal I promise *smile*) This girl is not only on her way to vibrant health, she is on her way back to Scrapland in a way she has only dreamed of for nearly two years.  Woot, woot ... yeah!  *big grin*

Oh, how I have missed y'all and anything scrapbook related!

Question.  Do you still have some Easter/Spring scrapping to do?  Please let me not be the only one.  Pretty please!

I am sharing with you today a scrapatit (Bon Scrapatit Design's version of a quick page, pronounced scrap-uh-teet) from a layout I made using a couple of photos that my daughter, Joan, emailed to me the week following Easter.  Of course, my heart skipped the usual few beats when oogling my precious, adorable granddaughter, Katelyn Rose, who is now 21-months-old! 

Hasn't Kate grown?  She is as busy as a bee can be and I miss and love her so.  Scrapping this layout was not only good therapy to cure my scrapping/designing deprivation, but good for my Grandmotherly soul!  

No novel Linda!  Oh, but there is simply so much news to share!  *biting tongue*



 Layout created by:  Linda Walton
Product used:  Paper, Embellishments and Word Art from 
*Spring Sun and Easter Fun* by Bon Scrapatit Designs
(from the March 2012 Blog Train)

I am including a couple of photo placement guides to make it easier to properly align your photos in this scrapatit.  The two openings are a little tricky since they are not flush to the background from being shadowed and it might take some tweaking to get them layered properly and such, so this little afterthought got me a little excited about saving y'all some time!  


The templates are proportioned precisely and I hope you find the instructions simple to follow.  They will, naturally, be covered up once you clip your photos to them!  *tada*
 
For those of you who might be downloading and using this scrapatit right away, I would so love your feedback as to whether you find the photo placement guides useful.  While most of you visiting me are seasoned scrappers, I know there are always new digiscrappers popping in who would welcome any timesavers.  Come to think of it, I am a fairly seasoned scrapper and I still enjoy timesavers!  *big grin*

For those who might not have already downloaded my blog train portion of *Spring Sun and Easter Fun*, you can click the image on the sidebar, or grab it here.

Make sure to come back tomorrow for the add-on.  If you download the scrapatit, you will find a preview of the add-on included!  It feels good to be even a wee bit ahead of myself for a change!  Knocking on wood.  Both this post and the one for tomorrow with the add-on are being scheduled ahead of time so that I can hunker down and prepare for the departure of the May Blog Train on Tuesday, May 1st!  Yes, yes, yes ... it is time to climb on board and find yourself some scrapping goodness from nearly 80 designers once again!  It is my hope that you be royally pleased!

Wishing each of you an incredibly beautiful week ahead.  May it be a most scrap-happy one at that and I am looking forward to spending more time with y'all and helping you to preserve your most precious and priceless memories!  Uhm ... you know, that part of my logo/branding that tells you I'll be giving you a taste of the scrapping life!  *wink, wink, wink*
