So I started this post on Monday and here it is Thursday....I have no idea what happened. LOL
First I had a few questions + answers that I wanted to share here this morning.
Q: Where do you purchase your kraft cardstock.
A: I have been buying all my kraft cardstock at Hobby Lobby. It comes in a 25 sheet pack, I think, and it's cheap and the perfect "kraft" color.
Q: I was just wondering, do you have to use the Big Shot die machine for the Bigz dies?
A: I am not sure about the longer Bigz dies, as I don't have any of these yet, but for the regular Bigz dies (i.e. the Top Note label die, it works with the Cuttlebug. The Cuttlebug is wide enough to accept these Bigz dies and I have used mine with this die. As far as the longer Bigz dies, when I get the extended cutting pads and longer Sizzix dies I will try them with the Cuttlebug and let you know for sure. :)
Q: Can you please tell me if the birdie embellishments are stamps also? (on THIS layout)
A: Yes, they are. HEREis a link. I stamped them once on the background and then on several sheets of patterned paper, then cut the individual pieces from the different papers and glued them over the first stamped image.
Q: What did you do for the inside of the cover? (on THIS album)
A: In the album I used the inside was paper covered so I didn't do anything, left it "as is". But on my Christmas album I painted the inside cover. (see photos below)
do stuff today album inside cover.

Q: Are these albums still available through MM? (same album as above question)
A: They are from the 5th Avenue Collection which isn't new so I'm not sure if they've been discontinued or not. I did find a few in stock HERE. I have ordered from here several times (I get all my We R leather albums here).
Q: Can the goosebumpz be used in either the Big Shot or the Cuttlebug?
A: Unfortunately, I did try the QK goosebumpz with the Sizzix Big Shot and I wasn't very impressed with the impression it left and the goosebumpz didn't work at all with the CB. :( Sorry.
However, if you have the Big Shot and are looking for some great embossing products check out these new texture plates from the new Stampin' Up catalog.
And the Cuttlebug embossing folders DO work with the Big Shot. :)
Today is February the 5th so that means it's time for a new class layout, sketch, PDF handout and video for my class Celebrate the Seasons over at 2Peas.
This month the focus is on Valentine's Day and/or Love. (but if you are a fan of Groundhog Day, by all means, scrapbook that instead!). :)

I chose to document and scrapbook one of our family's favorite holiday traditions: baking, frosting and decorating homemade sugar cookies. Yummy! We always try to make themed cookies around the major holidays. A fun activity and good to eat. :)
Click HERE to see more of the layout, the sketch, PDF file download and how-to video.
HERE is the link to the Education Board post where you can ask questions, share links to your layouts and more.
And HERE is a link to the GG Blog Post about this class with some additional ideas for creating your layout!
Okay, I have a BIG project I'm working on for THIS new class being offered by Shimelle at 2peas. One of Chad and I's favorite hobbies both as a couple, individually and as a family is to travel and it's a huge part of our life. I am so excited to be able to have a place to record everything about our HERE, THERE and EVERYWHERE. If you love Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class every Christmas season take a look at this new workshop. I am providing one of the sample albums for her class. So fun! Lots to do so I better get busy!
