Anyone Still Out There?

I know, its been a long time. I'm seven months pregnant now and super busy. I've had this plan of creating a very special freebie for everyone. I started it... don't know when I'll be done.

I just wanted to take a minute to stop by and say hi. I hope you all had a great summer. Personally, I'm happy fall is here! It was way too hot and humid.

Out of curiosity... are any of you homeschoolers?

Kit Requests/Questions

Hi everyone!
I've had a few people leave comments asking how they can get my previously released kits. Unfortunately, they did not leave a way for me to contact them. I've given this some thought. I would give them away, but I really don't think that would be fair to the people that paid for them. So, I've decided that if anone is interested in purchasing any of my previously released kits they can do so at the discounted rate of $2 a kit. Email me at emarinascraps[at]gmail[dot]com and I will provide you the details. Thanks!

A Celebration and Some News!

Just in time for iNSD is Miss Tiina's annual Birthday Celebration! You can Take The Cake and celebrate with all of the guests that will be joining her during May. Many have already set up their shops. Make sure to check it out here.

She also just released a bunch of adorable kits, including many Mama to Be items... which are perfect because I'm pregnant! Here is a layout I made this morning. See full credits here. I can't wait to find out what I'm having so I can start preparing... and shopping!

Among the great guests joining Miss Tiina this month is Mari Koegelenberg! She just released some new goodies and I got to play with them.

This one was made using the Go Fish items, see full credits here. I know I've scrapped this picture before, but it really is one of my favorites.

This one is made with The Beach House, see full credits here. This is one of my cousins, I took her senior pictures for her. Isn't she beautiful?

Well, that's it for now. I'm thinking about sharing a freebie soon... we'll see.
Happy Scrapping!

Anyone still out there?

I've been gone a while, huh? I've had a lot going on. I'm focusing on my family. I've been scrapping again, I thought I'd share some of what I've been doing recently.

First, I made a matching game for my son using some of Miss Tiina's recent goodies. He absolutely loved them! See full credits here.

Last night I made this simple little layout. I saw Miss Tiina's new photo clippers and I knew I had to use one of them for these pictures. My son loves hammin' it up for the camera. Imagine my surprise this morning when I was notified that layout was showcased as inspiration at Log Your Memory today! See full credits here.

I'll share more soon...

I'm Retiring!!!

I have a lot going on in my real life right now and unfortunately, I've made the decision to close my store. I might (hopefully) return eventually. I think I'll do freebies again when I get the itch to design. I will also scrap more, that'll be nice! In the mean time I've marked my store down, all items are only $1 each! I suggest you pick up anything you've been eyeing before they retire. Thank you to everyone who has supported me this last year, it's been great!

Mini Update And A Sneak Peek!

I just wanted to let you know that my Grab Bag is still available, but only through this weekend. I'll be adding everything separately to my store at that point. So pick it up now, its still only $3.00.

I've had a lot going on in my life lately. I haven't had much time to design or even scrap this month. I won't go into detail because it is family stuff. I will tell you that I'll be making some changes in my life. I'm trying to prioritize. My family needs me right now, but I also need time to myself. I stepped down from Dani's CT team. I am still working with Miss Tiina, Gypsy Couture and Mari Koegelenberg. I haven't been the best CT these last few months, but that is changing. I need to make time to scrap, it is like therapy for me. I actually made two layouts tonight, I'll share once the kits are released. I've also been very busy completely updating my website. Did you know I have a website? Well, I do. It was in desperate need of a makeover, I hadn't changed it in like a year and a half (I think). If you'd like to see it, just click here. You know what else I did tonight? I designed a mini kit! It is one of two upcoming releases. The other is a huge surprise though. I'll be back to share some of my recent layouts and the releases. I'll leave you with a sneak peek of what I made tonight. Hope you like it. Oh and if you take the time to look at my website (or maybe even leave me a comment), know that I really do appreciate it.

Happy Scrapping!

Project 365 - Take 2

I tried P365 last year, but decided to stop in the Spring. This year I'm trying again. I thought I'd share some pictures... not sure yet if I'll post them all.

I took these pictures of my son yesterday in his room. I love how they turned out. The first picture will be my pic of the day, it is SO him! The others are a few of my favorites. It was his idea to take pictures of his hands and toes, love it!

My son and I love to get crafty! We were playing with some foam shapes today. This is the first time he draws a whole body. The face shape and hair were foam pieces he glued on construction paper. He drew everything else with markers. I'm so proud- he just turned three in November! The first picture is the pic of the day, the other is a closer look at "Daddy". (The figure to the left is the sample I made to show him how to make a boy.)

Pretty good, huh? Well, I hope you enjoyed my pictures. I'll be back soon.
