Sundays With Lorraine

Happy New Year, my crafty friends!  Welcome back to Weekly Scrapper. I don’t know what happened to 2017 but it seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye. I am really looking forward to another year of creating with you both online and in person at the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo. This week I received all my projects that I will be sharing with you in the Creativity Center during our 2018 season and I am so excited – you are really going to love them. In the next few weeks, I will be taking photos and I’ll share a sneak peek or two with you, so make sure and stay tuned.

Creating A Scrapbook Page Title with Contrast

Having a bold, contrasting title on your layout can really pull things together while setting the mood for your layout.  I love the layout that Dawn designed when challenged to create a layout using seven black and white photos for seven days with no people in them; that’s quite the challenge.

I highly recommend stopping by the Get It Scrapped blog where there are lots of tips and techniques to help guide you along in creating the perfect scrapbook pages.

“Happiness is Homemade” Interactive Card By Anya

Discovering a handmade card in the mailbox is like receiving a hug in the mail. Anya used Echo Park’s “Welcome Home” sticker sheet to embellish the interactive flap on the front, along with one of the cards from the 4×6 Journaling Cards pattern paper for the background. This piece already had some decorative elements and was a great choice for the card.The combination of the premade embellishments means this card comes together in no time.

Kudos to you for sharing those smiles one handmade card at a time. Click here and I will be happy to escort you over to the Echo Park blog so you can take advantage of the free download with step-by-step instructions along with a complete supply list.

Rustic Blanket Ladder by Whitney & Ashley

I Instantly fell in love with this shabby chic blanket ladder that I discovered on the Shanty 2 Chic blog.  I originally saw one very similar at Pottery Barn for a little under $200; needless to say, I left it at Pottery Barn. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered how the girls made theirs for under $10. During the winter months, everyone at my house seems to have their favorite throw that we cozy up with in the living room. I don’t know about your house but in mine, the family is not always so quick to neatly fold the blanket after they leave the room, so I find myself constantly folding throws. I love this solution; everyone has their own home for their blanket. This also works great in the guest room to keep those extra blankets and quilts handy.

Thanks to the crafty girls over on the Shanty 2 Chic blog, you, too, can make your own blanket ladder to store all those cute winter throws.  Click here and I will be happy to escort you over to their blog so you can check out their easy-to-follow instructions which includes a video. Hugs to the girls for being such an inspiration to their fellow DIY-ers.

Lemon Chicken Skillet Dinner By Sara Wells

It’s lemon season here in sunny Southern California and I am extremely lucky to have a beautiful tree full of huge lemons. Many of you already know that I’m a sucker for any recipe that involves lemons, and what’s not to love about a recipe that basically cooks in one pan in about half an hour.

Click here and I will take you over to the Our Best Bites food blog so you can print out the recipe and check out all the yummy recipes they have to share, They even have three bestselling cook books, “Best Bites: Mormon Moms in the Kitchen,” “Savoring the Seasons with Our Best Bites,” and “400 Calories or Less from Our Best Bites.”

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  Happy New Year and hugs to all!
