Embellish Me!

There are two basic theories I have about the current state of scrapbooking... Today I am going to shre them with you.
Many of you have PLENTY of stuff (much of it purchased from yours truly, thank you very much) and you also have a LOT of scrapping to do... so because I want you (and me!) to Get It Done this year - I am designing a new line of simple pages called Embellish Me!
Starting at $5.00 you get a simple layout (like the one pictured below) You add the Embellishments (bling, chipboard, flowers, title, stickers, etc) ! You are able to use your stash and Git It Done! Perfect, if I do say so myself.
Each Embellish Me! page is unique - I may have 1, 2 or 3, but they are not made in quantities like the Quick Kits are...these pictures may even be sold out before they go live - but you get the idea!

Some have Paper Piecings ( Embellish Me! Deluxe)...

Some simple die cuts....

But all Embellish Me! pages have style!
To see a complete selection of Embellish Me! pages, be sure to visit me this Saturday at the Love to Scrap Event in Mentone, (EMAIL ME FOR INFO) or Next weekend at the 10-10-10 crop in Riverside.

Another simple page...

1 picture, 1 circle, some flowers and a title - It's DONE!
By the way, this is the inside of the circle from Monday's Layout! How cool is THAT?!

Another idea with the Journaling Pockets...

Last Week I showed you my nifty new product - Journaling pockets... See XXXXXXXXX Post...Today I'm going to show you that these little cuties are also great Gift Card Holders...
Check these out!

Add a sticker and your own handwritten sentiment.

Add a flower with a ribbon center.

Use a Cute Cupcake Paper Piecing (Available from 1 Creative Bug of Course!)

It doesn't get any easier than this...

Make it Manly with some metal embellishments.
I'm sure you are plenty creative and can come up with your own great ideas... If you are attending the Love To Scrap event this coming Saturday - be sure to sign up for my Make N Take- we'll be making some of these cuties!

Just a simple page to start off the week - layer pictures in a corner of your layout. Give the page a tiny bit of style with an oversized circle and simple stickers. - Git It Done!

Loving and Caring Mom....shows off a new product!

NOT! all the time... there are some things I don't want to share :-).

When the bugs were little, they used to take a few sips of my Starbucks Drink - when it got out of control I had to get them their own!

The bugs LOVE to sit in MY chair... the chair my Mommy and Daddy bout for me when I became a teacher, long before the bugs were born. Even Anthony can't sit in MY chair (it was before we were married too!)

And now the bugs have gone too far... they like Funnel Cake - I am doomed to have to share my precious, delicious once - a - year - treat! Oh the horror!

Lauren and Megan are following in my footsteps - they wer gobbling the funnel cake as fast as I was this past year! Next year I'm going to make them get their own - don't worry!

So I suppose you are wndering about the New Product... They are Journaling Pockets! Check them out... he perfect place to put hidden journaling:

So when you want to create an interactive page or just hide the fact your a less than giving mother ;-) - 1 Creative Bug's NEW journaling pockets are for YOU! They are available in a RAINBOW of colors and I can custom cut them to coordinate with whatever project you are working on... at just $0.25 each you can't go wrong!
Tune in next week for another great idea using the journaling pockets...

The BEST birthday gift - EVER!

Yesterday was my birthday... For weeks before and after I make a big deal over my birthday. It really is exciting, and I love being alive. I don't get many gifts - and that really is ok because 5 years ago I made a deal with Anthony that he didn't have to buy me birthday, anniversary, mother's day, christmas or any other gifts - I wanted to stay home and raise/homeschool our children. My Amazing husband agreed - and some times he has broken his agreement and gotten me a little somehing, but, he really gives me a gift every day when he is the one to troop off to work. - Thanks Hunny for the BEST birthday gift EVER!
Here is a layout of the Bugs and I in 2008, cherishing one of those GIFT FILLED days...
