Sundays With Lorraine

Hello my crafty peeps and welcome back to Stamp & Scrapbook Expo’s blog.  Happy September!  I love this time of year and all the things that come with it; the beginning of a new school year, cooler weather, the fall holidays, the decorating, and of course all the paper crafting opportunities, to name a few of my favorite things.  I hope today’s creative therapy will leave you inspired to create a little fall magic of your own.

A Teacher Takes a Hand Layout by Summer Fullerton

With the kiddos back to school I thought you might be inspired to get some of those first days of school pics off your phone and into your scrapbook.  Summer used a Jillibean Soup cut file for the title; I just love that quote about teachers, don’t you?  Click here and I will be happy to take you over to the Jillibean Soup website so you can see how easily this layout comes together.  Don’t be afraid to mix patterned papers from different collections, this layout has papers from Garden Harvest, Bohemian Brew, and the All About Dots Paper Pad.

Hugs Are Over The Moon by Allie

Talk about sending a hug through the mail!  How creative of Allison to use the adorable rabbit from the Over The Moon stamp set as the “u” in hugs.  To cut out the word “hugs” she used Rubbernecker’s Stitched Alphabet Upper Case Die set.  This is definitely one of my go-to alphabet dies to use for titles on my scrapbook layouts as well as on cards; it really is a perfect size.  The beautiful background was inked up with distress oxides, then stamped and heat embossed with Rubbernecker’s fun Daisies Stamp, creating a simple yet elegant look.  I’ve already started my shopping for our Arizona show, I NEED that Daisy Stamp in my life, lol!  Kudos to you for sharing those smiles one handmade card at a time.

Crock Pot Honey Bourbon Chicken by Persnickety Plates

This may not be dinner in under 30 minutes, but it only takes about five minutes to prep this meal, then back to your craft room where you belong.  Crank out a few projects and dinner is ready to go in about three hours, no muss, no fuss.  Click here and I will lead the way over to Persnickety Plates so you can jot down the ingredients along with a few notes. You and your family are going to love this tasty Bourbon Chicken, my family loves it with some steamed rice or a baked potato and whatever veggies we have on hand.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s projects.  For additional information on any of these projects, be sure to stop by the individual blogs.  I have supplied links so all you have to do is click on the title and you are there.

Just a reminder that our shows are winding down for the year but we do still have four left.  I hope to see you at one of them, I’ll meet you at the Creativity Center.

Happy fall and hugs to all!  Lorraine
