Happy Father’s Day! June 21, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 8:25 pm

Happy Father’s Day to my Dad, Don, Earl and of course hubby!  Hope you all had a great day! 

This is a layout I did quite some time ago of hubby.  He truly is our rock around here!  My peeps are so lucky to have him… Me too!


I tried entering this puppy as one of my layouts for the “Scrapbooker of the Year” CK contest in ’07.   I still love the title and journaling…that took some time to get just right.  I think most of the supplies are Scenic Route.

Hope the Dad’s in your life enjoyed this special day!

With summer approaching, I thought I would share a quick layout.  The pics are of Leah during our family vacation in Washington state last summer.  She was enjoying her very first snow cone.  The red really pops off the page.

Thanks for visiting today!

I’ve been working on some layouts/cards/projects for CHA.  I will be sharing some of them in the next couple of weeks.  This one uses the Cream of Mush Collection, Brown and Green Journaling Sprouts,  Harvest Bean Seeds and ribbons/fibers from our Bean Stalks.

More to come…

I can’t remember, is it part 4, 5 or 6?  You guys have been awesome in sharing ideas with me!  So now, I’ll share them with everyone else!


Here’s a great layout from Jennifer!  Jennifer is teaching classes and selling kits at Scrapbookings Inn in Hellertown, PA!  She made this adorable page kit with the Cream of Mush line!  Thanks for sharing Jennifer!



Here’s a cute layout from Jen!  Jen used the “Fresh Raspberries” from the Cold Raspberry collection.  I’m all about cutting out those butterflies and using them to add extra texture!  Thanks for sharing Jen!


Here’s a sweet layout from Kimber.  Kimber used a hint of “Brown Sugar“, Brown and Orange Graph Alphabeans, and a orange/kraft Journaling Sprout.  Love it!  Thanks for sharing Kimber!


Here’s a cute layout from Jana.  Jana used “Jalapeno Pepper”  and “Black Bean” from the Black Bean collection.  She also used black Alphabeans.  Adorable!!  Thanks for sharing Jana!

Here’s a layout I worked on during our retreat at Zane Trace Inn.  The journaling was created using the “About” page from this blog.  So, the layout is all about “me”.  I used “Shittake” from the Cream of Mush line and created the die cut from another piece of patterned paper (I think I used one from Making Memories).  Also, the red frame around “me” was created using 2 punches….one large scallop punch (from EK Success) created the large scallop and then I used a smaller punch (Stampin’ Up) to create the inner hole.  The red looks a bit flourescent in the photo – sorry…it doesn’t look that crazy in person.  I added a journaling sprout last but have not journaled anything on it yet.  Any ideas what I should put on it?  I was going to put “36” (for my age) but it didn’t work with the “about” journaling.  Any other ideas?  Any cute charms or new buttons or fun do-dads I could use?
