I have always wanted to try and stamp and image and then colour it. I ended up with this stamp I got from kijiji so I decided to try it out. I used water colour pencil crayons that I had lying around the house with some water and turpenoid for blending. I love how it turned out. I also inked the edges of everything on the card. Enjoy!

I love Thickers. I love how they look and I love using them on all my projects, especially on my scrapbook layouts. What I don't love about Thickers is their price. Well at least the price they are where I live. The only place I can get them at is Michael's and they are $8.49 a piece here. So I went to the dollar store and decided to see if I could find a cheaper alternative to Thickers. I found some foam ABC stickers for a dollar so I bought a couple of packs. I used some recollection glitter to make them fancy and they turned out beautifully. I made a video showing how to make them that can be found on the video page in this blog. Enjoy!

I created a new two page layout for the scrapbook album I'm making for my nephew yesterday. I just finished uploading the video. I have not made anything for around 2 weeks because I have been so busy. March 11th was my birthday and I turned 24 yrs old. I am feeling so old! Then the next weekend my husband had to get knee surgery. He tore his ACL while playing soccer and has been waiting for almost a year to get this surgery done. At the moment he can't really walk unless he is on crutches so I have been helping him out. I don't usually like to do videos when he is home because I prefer to spend time with him but he will be home for around 6 months, so I will have to get over that. Anyways, the layout that I made turned out really cute. I used this paper from Walmart to make it but the paper had these staples all the way through it which was preventing me from tearing out sheets of paper. They kept ripping and I was getting so frustrated so I decided to grab my staple remover and get them out. About 30mins latter I finally got the staples removed. I don't think I will be buying the paper again even though I loved the images on it and the texture. I hope you enjoy the layout!

I just made a thank you card. I have been doing a lot of scrapbook layouts lately so I thought that I would switch it up and make a card. I had a mystery person shovel my sidewalk the other day when it snowed and snowed and snowed. I am hoping to find out who this mystery person is and give them a thank you card and some chocolates. I made this card with a very spring like feel to it because there is so much snow out here right now and I wanted to give a sense that spring is coming. I think it turned out really cute. The flower I made using a phone book, and scallop punch, and some ink. I love how it turned out. Enjoy!

I did not make a video for this layout either. I have a lot of pages to get done and doing videos for every page takes hours and hours. So for this layout the mail 12x12 paper was from the Nursery Baby Boy pack from DCWV. The rest of the paper and embellishments were from the rugged paper pack that you can purchase from Creative Memories at: http://ca.mycmsite.com/sites/rebeccalevy The only other thing I used on this layout was the Sweet Baby stamp set from My Pink Stamper. The long strip of paper is 2 inches and the big piece of paper is 7 3/4 x 9 1/4. Enjoy!
I made this layout using the other side of the rugged baby boy paper pack. I did not make a video for this one. I labelled it car seat fun and kept it very simple. I just adhered the photos on and then I put a paper ribbon from the rugged power pallet across the middle and cut the ends to make it look a little different. Enjoy!

I was able to get two different two page layouts done today and I was also able to record and edit them. I am very impressed with how productive I've been today. This layout is done using Creative Memories products. This was the Rugged Baby Boy paper pack. You can purchase this pack as well as many more on my site: http://ca.mycmsite.com/sites/rebeccalevy I did another simple layout and I really like how it turned out. I was going to title this page Grandma's but the paper spoke for itself and I labelled it baby boy. Enjoy!
I did not work again today because of all this snow. The buses are not running which means there are basically no kids at school which gives me another day off. It is definitely nice to have another day off but not so nice to not be getting paid. But I took this day to make more scrapbook layouts. So here is another layout for my nephew's scrapbook album. I added some extra stickers after I filmed the video because I just thought it needed a little something extra. I really love how it turned out and I am so happy with the results. I've been into more simple pages lately just because his birthday is on April 4 th and I have a lot more pages to go. I will be doing some more elaborate pages as well, so you will get to see both types. I also am only using 4x6 pictures on this this layout because that is the only size that they gave me. I am also using a lot of pictures on each page because I know the parents will appreciate more photos on a page. Its all about knowing who you making the album for. Enjoy!

I was snowed in today here in Alberta. I was supposed to go to Olds to teach but I didn't even make it 5 mins away from my house before I got stuck. I spent the better part of an hour trying to get out. I had some people stop and help me which was wonderful. I called a tow truck because the first people who came by were unsuccessful in helping me get out and I thought I was going to be stuck there. So I called a tow truck company and figured I would keep trying to get out while I was waiting since they said they would be at least 45mins. Another person came by and helped me and I was finally able to get out of the snow. I called the place I was going to work at and cancelled which gave me an entire day off, which I haven't had in a very long time. It was so nice and relaxing and I was able to get another two page layout done. I am in the process of uploading and then editing the video right now. I kept this layout really simple but I think it turned out really nice. I hope you all like it. Enjoy!
Last night my wonderful cousin was on Canada's Got Talent. She was amazing. I am on it too with my sister and cousins cheering for her in the audience. I am posting the video here for you guys to check out. I am so proud of her. I always new she was a star!
