Bimini Moose Scrapbook Challenges Coming Back Soon!


In 2014, I created a scrapbook challenge site called Bimini Moose. It ran for a little while, and then life happened, and I decided to put the challenges on hold indefinitely.

On June 1st, Bimini Moose Scrapbook Challenges is BACK!

Since the blog was so old, there were a lot of broken images and links in the past posts. Because of that, I ended up deleting all of the past posts, but left the blog name the same, and the followers are still there. Basically, we are starting fresh all over again.

I would LOVE it if you guys would hop over to Bimini Moose and become a Follower, and bookmark the site.

Our first challenge is June 1st. Challenges will run monthly, and always be for Scrapbook Layouts with an optional theme. (No digital layouts.) 

Let's get scrapping!

Dad Is Rad - Close To My Heart NEW Workshop Bundle (available for a limited time)

Who loves Scrapbooking and Cardmaking as much as I do?!


Available for a limited time - thru June 30th or while supplies last.
(details below are copy and pasted for the CTMH online store)

DAD IS RAD

Exclusive Product Offering

To celebrate the dads in your life, the Dad Is Rad exclusive product offering features the limited Rad Dad stamp set, and discounted Dad is Rad Workshop Bundle. The products in this workshop include the stamp set and other items to create one 12" x 12" layout, one 
12" x 12" page, and four cards that can be used for Father's Day, or to share with all the "rad" people you love!


Close To My Heart workshops have the BEST kits for scrapbooking and card making. They make is so easy to create beautiful, amazing projects. I'll be sharing the scrapbook layouts and the cards I create with this kit hopefully next week. My order should early next week, and I hope to dig in and start creating right away. 

You can use this kit for any occasion in your scrapbook. If your dad is deceased, like mine, you can use these as memorial pages. I'm thinking about doing that with photos of him. Or you can make these pages for your husband (the father of your children.) Or you can use these pages for your son or Son-in-law (the father of your grandchildren). Of course you can always use a different stamp set and use these same layouts for Senior photos, School Year Pictures, Boy Scouts, anything! Follow the workshop instruction guide exactly, or transform it into something of your own.

Thanks for visiting with me today.
Hugs!
:) Janis

Flowers Box Card


Oh my gosh.
So you guys know I love Anna Griffin everything.
Recently, she has come out with a new Cricut cartridge called Window Box Cards.
(I got it from HSN.) I just received it yesterday along with some of her 12x12 gorgeous pattern papers. I love box cards, but I love this new cartridge that makes them even more because she has included print and cuts, and everything you need to make gorgeous box cards. Get ready. You are going to be seeing a lot of these for a while. :) 


I cut out the print and cut flowers onto Ivory cardstock. I normally would use white, but I saw her mention this in a video to help coordinate with her pattern papers, and thought what a wonderful idea. It never would have occurred to me to use ivory cardstock for print and cuts.


I took several pictures because I can never decide the best way to photograph these.


Thanks for visiting with me today.
Have a fabulous day, everyone.

Anchor Treat Box


Anchor Treat Box, Silhouette Cut file
Stampin' Up Chevron Embossing Folder
The cut file came with tiny red strips for the life preserver.
You know I hate tiny pieces to glue together,
so I just colored red where the strips would have gone.
I think that worked out just fine.
Have a great day, everyone.
Thanks for visiting with me today.
