April 2017

Hello Everyone,
I am back posting on my blog. Have been quite busy and away for most of December and all of January. Then some family stuff and so on.

Hope to be back scrapbooking shortly. I have some to finish. Well lots to finish as I have not been doing much.

I am working on a couple of quilts and hope to have them finished soon.  They have been 10 years in the making. Well actually 11.  Now to finish tying them and sew the binding. I did get one done.

I hope you all have been crafting and scrapbooking.

I am hoping to get a newsletter done at some point.  Also to  work on an event possibly in the near future.

Have a great Sunday and hope you are all enjoying some sunshine today like we are here.

Check out some of the specials on my website www.scrapbookfunbykerry.closetomyheart.ca

Yes my website has changed to a Canada one. Yay!!! You can still access it through my old one if you have it book marked already.

November Fun

I have been having fun working on the HAPPY HAPPY CHRISTMAS workshop put out by CTMH. Love it.

I will post pictures after my workshop on Monday November the 14th.  The event is posted on my facebook page Scrapbook Fun. If you wish to join in and follow along you can order from my website Scrapbook Fun by Kerry. I am making all the projects as I had the last 3 extras. For the magnetic board one I am doing it as a page as I do not have the magnetic frame.

I am a little late updating as I have been busy doing the pages and getting ready to quilt.  Some big projects to get done for Christmas gifts.  I do believe that I now have all the Christmas pages done and just have to add photos to them. So excited.  I have done the Happy Happy Christmas workshop, the OH Deer workshops your way and the City Sidewalks workshops your way. I will be posting all the photos after the weekend.  I still have some cards to make.  I think I will also have most of my cards done as well.

Hope you all have a great week and Happy Crafting.

Events and More

Check my event on the sidebar.  I am looking forward to having fun and getting back into crafting.
Check out my facebook page as well. My event and newsletter will post later today.

The weather looked like rain today and now the sun is shining brightly.

The golf course is calling and it will have to wait as there are things that are required to be done.  I do have to find an oven element. Tried cooking last night and thought hmmmm the beeper had not gone. Decided to check it out as it had been almost hour (so I realized) and still not where it should be. Supper changed and broil it was.  Turned out and was quite good.

There are so many new products out and I would like them all.  I guess a few at a time over the year will work. I am hoping to play some time today and make a list of the things I would like from both idea books and then choose the priority ones.

I am looking forward to the new colours and the new stamp pads. I am looking forward to the Work Place Wonder being available.  It looks like it will be awesome.

Have fun checking out all the new stuff.

Have a great day.

Some New Things

Hello Everyone,
I have been busy trying to organize my house, do books and scrapbook, some holidays and time with my grandchildren.

I am going to try to get caught up with my CTMH stuff over the next few days.  I was hoping to have some samples of my own to post for the new product as it looks so awesome. My order has traveled a large portion of Canada due to the confusion with Canada Post and the threat of a strike or lock out. It is supposed to be on the way back from Ontario now so hopefully it will be here soon.

I am just going to post a few new things my website instead. When I have time I will work on the product and get it on here.

All the product I have coming was to do the challenges from the Virtual convention. The ladies at corporate and I had good laugh over that. I guess it will be a rush to get it done. It will get done though.

Here are some pictures of some of the new products and you can check them all out at Scrapbook Fun.

Whimsy Fundamentals 

Picture My Life

New Inks and Ink Pads

Basics Fundamentals - Rustic Home

Thin Cuts - Hearts

Adventure Fundamentals

Cricut - Flower Market

Take a tour through the new Idea Book. It has many knew items. I am also excited to get the knew Holiday Expressions and order some of that product. So many choices of exciting things and having to choose what to order first.

Have a great day.

July Blog Hop Magical





Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop.

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features
Close To My Heart Consultants from all over Canada
showing you their projects. The hearts of the west team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is the Calypso paper pack, brought to you by the Expressions 2 2016, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

If you came from Corinna Murphy Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax,and hop around 
the team with us.

I used the Magical Workshops Your Way to make the following pages. I have yet to put the photos on and journal. I hope to have them done sometime soon. 

I got 3 -2 page spreads, card scrapbook pages and 9 cards out of one workshop with some paper and bits left over. I am going to start putting all the bits into a container and use them on other pages and in my workshops. 

I love these as they are quick and you do not have to stamp unless you wish to.

For the cards I have used a discontinued stamp set A1136 Card Chatter Focus on You and C1631 Birthday Princess as I do not have the stamp set Fairytale Birtday B1534. I used used Glacier ink, Archival black, Shin Han Markers to colour the Princess.
