Welcome!


YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Files are currently not available due to file hosting fees, please send an email to amkscrap @ gmail.com (no spaces) if you would like to request a file and I'll see if I still have it on hand.

So, my 300th post isn't very exciting :(

I did tho get a chance to make a few more train cards so that I could give more away :) I'm hoping to get a few more made so more kids can recieve these :)

Would the following email me with their addy's, and I will get the cards out on Monday. Please verify that I have the right information for the names too!

ISAAC WORD BOOK - Gypsy File

RYAN WORD BOOK - Gypsy File




Train Card Cut Files

Sorry for the delay in these - worked all weekend, and now I've got a horrible sinus infection. I'm feeling a little better, and should be "up to par" tomorrow :)

You will need :: Mickey and Friends (For the Train) Geroge (rectangle to combined the train - can substitute any cart with a rectangle on it and I did the train wheels, again can sub with any circle) You can use any font for the name, or leave it blank!

The coworker that I made these for (the Issac and Ryan) I also did wordbooks with their names. She LOVED them! And, even tho I told her she didn't owe me a thing for them, she insisted that she paid me - she gave me $20 (Wow!) She also said that I should do that as my Job instead of working there, LOL, if I could make 40K+ making cards, I'd be there. But, I love my job and the people that I work with :) Anyway.. back to the files..

**This is my first Gypsy File sharing... if you download it, PLMK If it opens right, I opened it in DS, and it was all on one mat, but dunno if that's how the Gypsy sees it too. It works on mine tho**

Unicorn Shields and Wooden Spoons

While at Rennaissance Festival last year, I picked up these two adorable wooden shields. My first intent was to decorate them myself, and then give them to Lilly and her sister Joslyn. Well, I never got around to decorating them, so I decided that it may be fun for them to decorate them instead! So I brought them with me up to MN this last weekend, and Lilly and Joslyn went to town decorating them! And then.. Grandma gave the girl wooden spoons for their "swords". Video Below is a clip of them "fighting" :)

Lilly's Valentine Box

Here are pictures of the box that I decorated for Lilly to take to school and collect her valentines in.
The "My Valentine" was in my swap stash, I actually made it about 3 years ago (had the Xyron PCS then to cut the letters!)

"LILLY" letters are from A Child's Year, along with the side view of the girl on one of the sides.
