Fun at the Let’s Create Expo!

I went to the Let’s Create Expo last week and had so much fun shopping and scrapping! I bought lots of paper there! I also chatted and scrapped with a couple of great people. Here are a couple of my favorite layouts that I created. I really packed lightly so I had to make due with the few photos and supplies that I brought. :)

Now I feel re-inspired to scrap and use some new goodies (and use up old stuff, too!!). What have you been working on? Come share in the gallery and forum with us!!

Pocket Letters

Have you seen the new snail mail goodies going around? Pocket Letters! Super fun stuff. I’ve made and mailed out four so far. And my kids are mailing some to their friends as well. None of our recipients have received them yet…but they should arrive Monday or Tuesday.

You get to play with your crafty goodies and send someone some happy mail…win-win if you ask me! You add a letter, some fun goodies and other things for the recipient.

Here are some that I’ve made-



I love the idea of sending and receiving awesome snail mail!!! Pull out your goodies and send a letter or card to someone! I know it will put a smile on their face!

Here’s a peek at one of my layouts for this upcoming class.

I have a neat tutorial to go along with this one as well. I will be using “gel medium” and a couple things you probably already have. Do you have gel medium? It is a lot of fun! It’s not very expensive and you can find it in the acrylic or watercolor section at your local craft store. This is the one I have but there are other brands (including one by Ranger).

You can wait and see what I do with it or grab some while you are out…just wanted to give you all a fair warning. ;) I will probably be using it more than once on my layouts in class.

I am looking forward to scrapbooking with you all and completing more pages!!
