Hello Family, Friends, and Fellow Crafters. Although I'm still working out the kinks, my new blog is just about there. If you have a moment, please follow me at Cassie's Craft Cafe. I'll be uploading new projects this week.

Hello fellow crafters. I had no idea the last time my blog was updated was back in September. I've had a lot going on and tons of projects in between, BUT, I will be up and running and from a new blog location soon!

Wedding Layout

I had a small break from my busy life this weekend and it was much needed. There is always lots to do and not enough time to do it all. When one project is over, another is already under way. Over at Platinum Scraps this week, we had to create a LO, using the sketch below, from PageMaps.

Here is my take on it:

Baby Shower Gifts

I can't tell you all how swamped I've been with projects. In a good way though and mostly business. Here is a gift for a Scrapper/Friend/Mommy to be.

Vinyl Onesis

This very same friend has also abandoned traditional scrapbooks for digital, but I told her I was going to reel her back in. As a matter of fact, the baby has several 8x8 traditional pages, that she's done, of sonnogram pictures. I think he and I together will bring her back in. I started by making her a paperbag album:

Gift Baskets

Yesterday at church, we closed out our annual women's day season with our Women in White service. Each year, I like to make something special for a few women whom God would lead me to bless. I made four of these baskets:

During our Women's Retreat, one of the speakers advised us to get rid of any journals that contained negative memories and for us to start a Joyful Journal from that point forwared. I used my cinch to bind the book.
Post-It Note Holders. These were created using a sizzix die.

Birthday Easel Card

Another challenge complete. This week Celebrate the Occasion, challenged their followers to create a Birthday Easel card. Although this technique has been out for awhile, this is my very first time doing it. I was instantly hooked! I created 2 more following this one.

Vinyl Tumblers & Water Bottle Take 2

Another busy week for me. The orders for Tumblers and Water Bottles just keep coming; among all the other things happening in my life. I'm sending some special love to my Mom who ordered 2 for shipment to CT. Thanks Mommy!

Finally, the Elephant Wedding Program has been delivered and the Nuptials took place today. I did tell my craft family that although this was a lot of work, there wasn't anything super fancy about it. The bride is a Delta and wanted something different. Special thanks to my hubby, daughter, Lisa, Yani, Chante, Karen, and Femi(Karen's hubby) who each had a role in getting all 250 programs completed.

Today, the Church's Youth Group went out on our monthly outing, to see the Smurfs. The movie was really good and the kids had a blast. Oh wait, so did the adults. We giggled like little girls. After my daughter saw Papa Smurf last week, she asked for (file on mardenz.blogspot.com):

And lastly, I've been waiting to put my Fancy Frames cricut cartridge to use. My sole purpose of getting this cart was to use on vinyl projects.
