Kit update

WOW!  You people LOVE the patriotic kits. I have had double what I anticipated in orders.   Many of you have emailed me asking if it is to late to order.  If you want to receive the kits by July I need orders turned in by Wednesday June 16th.  All kits  ordered this week should  be done by June 24th. After Wednesday, I will still take orders but I am going out of town and so they will not get filled until after the first of the month.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all you wonderful people, I hope you enjoy these kits as much as I enjoy putting them together for you!!!

Patriotic Kits

Just in case you didn't notice, July is just around the corner. Scary hu?  But don't panic, I have some kits that will get you in the mood for parades and picnics and all things patriotic.

I have some new kits and some updated kits from last year, but there is something for everyone.

The America Block kit is the perfect way to show your American pride.It is full of red, white and blue and lots of stars and 3D embellishments.  Cost is $14.00

This Flag Block kit is  updated from last year.  It is a great kit for beginners and looks so good sitting on you mantel or shelf.  Cost is $12.00

These Firecrackers are another updated favorite from last year.  There are two different kits, the Round Firecrackers or the Square Firecrackers. Each kit is $10.00 and they look great mixed together.

The Stars and Stripes Saying kit is vinyl and wood and goes together really quickly.  It would also make a great centerpiece for you picnic or family get together.  (you can also use it as a paper weight to hold down napkins, paper plates, etc.)  Cost is only $10.00

And Finally what collection would be complete without a door hanger.  Welcome everyone who comes to visit with this hanging flag.  It is a wood and Vinyl project and a great way to show everyone where your loyalties are.  Cost on the Flag Door Hanger is $10.00 and comes with everything you need to finish it.

I am taking orders until this Saturday (June 12th ) Orders should be ready for pickup, delivery or shipment by June 19th.

As always order 3 different kits and get $5.00 off and for this collection only order all 6 kits and get $10.00 off! 

email me with your order (rushton_tracy@yahoo.com) and if you need a pay pal link I can send that also.

Another One

The verdict is in on the autograph books and the kids LOVED them.  D4 said all of her friends thought it was better than the year book and they all wanted one.  Only Son said it was cool because it wasn't as big as the year books and so it was easier to carry.  Both books came back full of good wishes.

Tomorrow I will send my 4th grader with hers. 

She is especially excited because she has a page just for her teacher (who by the way, she has totally loved this year!)

I will not bore you with the rest of the pages, its very similar to D4's.  I used the same paper and leftover cutouts. 

Now that school is out, we are going to have to find some activities for everyone.

Autograph Books

Lets just get the facts out right now... I am a bad mom!

What kind of scrapbooking, family history, mother would forget to order year books for her children?  That would be ME! I admit it, bad, bad mom!

So to rectify the situation I told my three youngest (2 in Jr. High, 1 in Elem.) I would make them autograph books for the last day of school.  Here is what I came up with for the two Junior High kids.

The first tip in making Autograph Books is to leave LOTS of blank areas for people to sign

Only Son's book was made using leftover chipboard. Paper and embellishments were from

Another tip is to make it personal with photos and embellishments.

For D4's book I used a pre-made chipboard book from Bo Bunny and paper from
Echo Park Paper Company (A new company-check them out.)
I made the labels and journaling blocks on the computer and used the Silhouette to cut out the flowers and borders.

So how did the autograph books go?  We will find out tonight.
