Time for More Oodagoodies!

I'm long overdue for some Oodagoodies, but I just couldn't decide what to give away! Then I came across this in my craft room and thought it would be a little something different. Those of you who are Heidi Swapp fans will LOVE this. It's a whole set of her embellishments complete with a 6x6 scrapbook! I, personally, LOVE all of her "ghost-ware". . .the ghost alphabets, the ghost flowers, hearts! Some of my favorites! This set has chipboard letters, ribbons, "bling", divider tabs, scrapbooking tape. . .as you can see by the closeup picture, there are 567 pieces in this set! WOW! It really is a great set. I bought a couple and have used one for a scrapbook on my husband and I (since we didn't really have one), and it was fun and pretty easy since everything goes together! I tried to get a good picture of the whole set, but I couldn't seem to get one without any glare. Hopefully you can see well enough! So, in order to win this set of Oodagoodies, post a comment telling me the last scrapbook you made for someone, (or if you don't scrapbook) the last card set you made for someone and what the occasion was. If you've got a picture of that creation, post a link with your comment because I'd LOVE to see it! :) You have until next Wednesday morning, May 23 at 10am EST to post a comment. I look forward to reading about your last gift creation! Good luck, and have a wonderful day! As always, thank you for visiting!

Charmaine, I check out your blog regularly! The last card I made was for a challenge on Poetic Artistry... it will be posted to my blog later this morning!

Cat said...

Hi Charmaine! I can't believe I am the first to post! I made a little scrapbook for my daughter's fiance for Christmas last year. It's in my scs gallery, here (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/427913?cat=500&ppuser=4155)

Katie said...

That looks like a wonderful bunch of goodies!!

The last album I made as a gift was probably the ones I made my neices for Christmas. I made some layouts for them to fill. I love making those for people!!

Michelle said...

I am currently working on my Mom's Heritage album...it's far from finished, though! I can't believe how many pictures she has of her grandparents, even gret-grandparents!
The last COMPLETED album I did was for a friend's baby shower. I took all the photos, then scrapped them, so she had an album of her shower, the gifts, the guests, and some inspirational quotes on motherhood!

Kim Ross said...

I've only made one scrapbook and I made it for my Dad for Father's Day 2006. It was designed by my friend Lori Renn and it was so neat! The cover started out as two sheets of plaid Chatterbox cardstock, folded into the shape of a collar shirt. Then Bazzill cardstock 'pages' were sewn into the crease. I then proceeded to fill it with pictures of the two of us when I was very young and journaling was about all the things I love about him.... what he cooks, how he remembers that I love sheep and the color purple, how much fun we have travelling the world together, etc. I then presented it to him at dinner accompanied by a shirt-shaped ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. It was PERFECT! :) (And he STILL is showing it to everyone who will stop for 2 seconds -- even construction workers at the house!)

Wendy said...

Wow Charmaine, what amazing goodies you are giving away! I am in the finishing stages of an 8x8 chipboard album for my newest nephew who arrived on Monday. I'm just awaiting pictures of the new little man before I can call it complete. I don't have a blog yet but will try and get some pictures uploaded later.

jodene said...

What a wonderful idea for blog candy. I scrapbook every picture I take so I have no themed albums really. All my families photos go into an album and friends into another. Between card making and scrapbooking I don't know how I get anything done!

Toni said...

I am not a scrapbooker, but several years ago I made a scrapbook for my mom, of a family reunion. The last card I made for someone, was a birthday card for my SIL

DeniseLynn said...

First of all I want to say "WOW" that's some great stuff you're willing to part with. (yippee!! please, please pick me! Hee Hee!!)Seems I am always making cards and scrapbooks for other people so I am currently working on one for me and my hubby - this Octber we celebrate 10 years together and it's time I made a book devoted to us!

I recently made a beautiful book for my grandmother. I wrote letters to all my aunts, uncles and cousins asking them to write down their favorite memories of Grandma and share a favorite family photo too and send it to me. I turned around and put everything they sent along with gorgeous papers and embelishments into a precious book for Grandma to read over and over again. I cried while I made it for goodness sake and let me just say when Grandma opened it at her birthday celebration there wasn't wa dry eye in the house! Even the men commented how cool it was. I've done other similar books but this latest endeavor was priceless.

I am not a blogger *don't even own a scanner* so I've nothing I can show you but I hope that doesn't count against me.

michelle said...

The last card I made was for my sister in laws baby shower. As well as a gift box with a couple cards and a decorated note pad holder for the door prize. (Sorry I can't post a picture the showers over and I didn't take pictures). Awesome blog candy.

Rosella said...

I really enjoy your blog Charmaine. You have a very friendly spirit.
I don't scrapbook. I just send a card to my SIL for her birthday. Here it is: http://rincondelencanto.blogspot.com/2007/05/who-would-have-thought.html

Melissa said...

Woo-hoo! The last scrapbook I made was for a friend's wedding album and that was way back in 2000! Yikes! No pictures of it unfortunately!

Bettina said...

What amazing goodies! The last scrapbook I made was just for Mother's Day. I made a 4x4 book of faces - all my mom's grandchildren. Each double layout had a huge chipboard letter for the first letter in the child's name (primas for the girls and flourishes for the boys as accents) and mini sticker letters to spell out their names along the chipboard letter. The right side had a 4x4 photo of the child's face (8 grandchildren in all). I love making mini books because they are fast and fun. I should have taken photos! I guess I need to borrow it back to photograph!

Angel said...

I love your oodagoodies. And they are GOOD! The last card I made (I deparately WANT to scrapbook, but am just too busy) was for Mother's day. Here they are!
http://angel2stamp.wordpress.com/2007/05/10/pink-flourishes-for-moms/
I SO hope I win!

Katie said...

I'd like to say I have a recent scrapbook completed, but like how quick and easy cards are to complete, so, sadly enough no scrapbooking here! The last card I made was for my mom for Mother's Day. (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/551320?cat=500&ppuser=60454)

Allison said...

I am going to start scrapbooking...I figured I would start with 6 x 6s of the kids antics! I did make a set of cards for my niece but it was over a whole series of posts...

Here's my fav: http://stampinwhenican.blogspot.com/2006/11/sassy-birthday-girl.html

Andrea said...

Hi Charmaine, I don't scrapbook (yet), but I do love to make cards. The latest gift of cards that I made was for my Mom on Mother's Day. Her and I share all of the card making goodies but luckily for me they are kept at my house. For this reason it makes it hard for her to make cards when she needs them. I made her 5 cards to keep at home for those occasions when she can't make her own. I think she really liked them.

Janet said...

The last scrapbook I made was an alphabet book for my youngest daughter ( A is for asleep, B is for big brother, etc) I love how it came out, but have yet to put a single picture in it! Your goodies look amazing! Here's hoping...

tikkelperi said...

Greetings from Finland.

Last card I made was an ATC for a friend in Germany. You will see it in my blog (http://tikkelperi.blogspot.com/) after she has received it.

Have a great day!

Cindy Keery said...

The last scrapbook I made was on the weekend and it was a chip board coaster accordion album. I haven't decided who to give it to yet.

Michelle Tweedy said...

Love your oodagoodies! The last album I made was for myself. It was from my 20th Wedding Anniversary two day trip to Diseyland. It was so fun to go with dh and no kidlets!

scfranson said...

Love your blog. The last card I made was a Mother's Day card. I used Melissa Frances patterned papers, tore some of it, added an oval paper "clip" with ribbon on it, stamped on it also. She called to say she loved it, which is amazing coming from her.

melissa r. said...

Hi...I love your blog! I haven't made a scrapbook yet, just a few pages that will go into the one that I intend to make for my daughter. My newest one is a page of her dance photos. I loved your recent post with the photo of Savanah using her markers on a rubber stamp. Too cute!

Terri E. said...

What fun! My last card was for my Mom for mother's day. It was such fun because I just got in my giga punches!

It's a good life!

Shadowcatcher said...

Wow! This looks like a toybox of fun! Hmmmm... the last scrapbook I made was for my mom about 5 years ago. That's the last time I scrapbooked. So, I'll go with card set. The last one I have a picture of is one I made for my grandma at Christmas time... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/427850?cat=500&perpage=48&ppuser=95464

Linda said...

Well, you've already seen the last set I made. I ended up giving these as a gift to my daughter's kindergarten teacher for National Teacher's Day:
http://fifenhorn.blogspot.com/2007/05/i-dont-know-why-im-on-card-run.html

And although these aren't SCRAPBOOKS, per se, they are a canvas scrapbook page and crafted candle, made for my MIL (in the 'Burgh!) and my mom. They both loved them!

Lisa said...

Well first off I have to say...DID YOU SEE THE NEW PAPERTREY INK SET?? I think it was created just for you!!!!

Okay...now on to regularly scheduled blog posting..last scrapbook I made (in the works still), is for my daughter's wedding. She will have been married 2 years in October, you would think I could just finish it up, but I have other pages, and cards, and swaps, and cards, and cards and cards to make- oh I said that already, well I just tend to get too bored doing just one thing over and over, so I'll finish it - soon - I promise.
LOVE your blog!

tyrymom29 said...

Hi charmaine !! The last scrapbook I made was for my Parents 30th wedding anniversary ....They loved it and everyone else did too....Even my big ,strong Dad shed a few tears ....I had made pages with hidden messages inside IT was great !!! The reason I started scrapbooking was to make them an album It took me 2 yrs to finish it and well Now I cant stop I love it !!!! Thanks so much for the chance!!!! Shannon

lois lane said...

I am working on 2 scrapbooks right now. A sports one for my son and for my daughter, I am making her a scrapbook of her mission trip to Mexico last year. I made two little mini maze books for my mother and mil for Mother's Day.

Splashryan said...

I'm having problems linking to the actual post but I have the link for the first picture. http://bp2.blogger.com/_7bclv1L0EUE/RdJDBEL-JqI/AAAAAAAAAIQ/qX6MX-OVJrc/s1600-h/DSC00562.JPG It's a little 6x6 album I put together for a co-worker. I figured they could take it to work to show off their new bundle of joy and then later trim out the pages and put in a 6x6 album. If you go to my blog, you can see the many pages dated February 13th "Some more creations" I used the animal alphabet and used a describing word for each page. Great blog, check you out every day! TFS!

Heidi said...

Well I made my mother's day card and it is on my blog as well

http://heidishappystamping.blogspot.com/

But I think the one I love the bestest was one I did for her 60th birthday- I made it an accordian card. I sent to all her family friends and had them send pictures/thoughts/memories and I embellished them and put it in this card. She loved it so much that she packed it immediately in her luggage for a trip she was taking and then forgot where it was. I don't have a picture of it, should get one though as I am sure she still has that little treasure.

Sherrie said...

Fantastic give away Charmaine! The last set I made to give away I just did on Mother's day.

I truly enjoy your blog and come check out the cute stuff you are so talented at making!

sdaly said...

Thanks for the great "goodie" offer and moreover, sharing your creativity on your blog.

I don't scrapbook (no time for another activity), but I enjoy making cards. I just made mothers day cards for my mother/MIL using Roses in Winter. I am also finishing up some grad cards for nieces and nephews that incorporate some of my fav Dr. Seuss quotes from "Baby Oh Baby!"

Flossie's Follies said...

I make one scrapbook for my niece and her family, well really two I also keep a Christmas Scrapbook current. I started the Christmas Scrapbook about 13 years ago when my niece got married, it is great fun to look at the pictures to see how the children have grown and the adults also (sideways). Your blog is fantastic also such wonderful cards and great ideas.

CAKVD said...

Hello! I made a 12x12 scrapbook for my friend that recently had a baby girl (her 4th child). She loves to scrapbook, but doesn't have time anymore to do it. I took note when she looked through my scrapbook on the pages she liked best. So I copied those pages so all she had to do was put the photos of her new baby in it.
Thanks! Cheryl KVD

Sue Symens said...

I took one of SU's mini scrapbooks. The one in the box and made a "BOO" book for my niece. That her mom could put each years halloween pic in it and at least have them organized.

foodpartyfun said...

Hi Charmaine,
What wonderful Oodagoodies to give away! The last scrapbook I finished (notice I said, "finished", since there are many incomplete ones around here!) was the one of when my son and I went to France. Congrats on the success of your wonderful blog!

Pat

Jill said...

Well, I just made a paper bag album with blank pages for my son's kindergarten teacher as an end of the year present. See it hereI just started scrapbooking again recently so it would be so fun to win your goodies (keeping my fingers crossed).

Jana Weaver said...

THe last scrapbook I made for someone else was a 6 by 6 album chronicaling a trip my daughter and I took with my sisters. It was a thank you to them for including us in their wonderful vacation to Captiva Island in Florida!

Love your blog!!!

lisa bauer said...

The last scrapbook I made was for my nieces.. (so i actually made two)..one was for a niece who is getting married to keep track of her shower gifts and shower memories, the other niece is expecting her first baby, so i did a similar one for her to keep track of the baby gifts and shower memories. I am now working on a grandma brag book for my step sister(shower is Saturday) as this will be her first grandchild.
Love your blog..check it everyday you are such an inspiration...

chelemom said...

I always make an album for my niece and nephew each year. I try to use pics that I know the parents don't have. IT is fun watching them grow in the albums!

Bethany Paull said...

Hey Charmaine, great blog candy! It looks like a lot of fun to play with. I'm sure you know just how much I enjoy your blog. You're on my Google Reader and I stop by every time you post. Love your stuff.

Dottie K said...

Hi Charmaine, I just made a 12X12 wedding album for a shower gift along with 3 graduation albums and now I'm working on a few Disney pages to use for myself. I'm in the middle of 2 albums - one for my niece and 1 for my newphew. I scrap their entire year and they get an album for their birthday every year. I really enjoy your blog everyday. TFS!

Amy said...

My Mom and I are working on a graduation scrapbook for my Dad based on one we saw on display at a scrapbook store: adhere a flat piece of chipboard to the top of a round box and paint it black to look like a mortarboard. Too cute! The album is round and fits inside the box.

Pat S. said...

Hi Charmaine!
I just found your blog from Allison...I see you advertise her blog, too :)

This is a really awesome contest...WOW!

I do not scrap, but I just made my first altered item. It is a frame that I made for my brother's 50th birthday.

doverdi said...

The last albums that I made as a gift was at Christmas when I made my 2 nieces & son a paperbag album. More recent, I have made 5 mini coaster albums and am currently working on my sister's birthday album.

L8ybug2 said...

What a great prize. I just finished a scrapbook for myself last week. You can see some of the pages on my blog http://ritasstampart.blogspot.com
The last card set I made was for my Aunt for her Birthday last year. I don't have any pictures of it though....Woo hoo!!! I just bought the new Papertrey stamp set. Can't wait to get it!

Stephanie W. said...

Awesome goodies!

The last scrapbook I made was for my fiance for an anniversary. It was a cute lil 8 x8 album which I altered the front and had a blast decorating the pages. He loved it and it now sits on our coffee table :c)

Julie Brooks said...

WOW! Look at those goodies!
The last scrapbook I made was for my Aunt. (I could kick myself for not taking pictures)My Uncle died from colon cancer at the young age of 44. In honor of him I walked in the relay for life and raised money for cancer research. If you have never been to a relay for life it's life changing! I took pictures of my uncle's luminarie with his name on it and our relay team. The entire event is amazing and I photographed it all and made a 5X7 book for my aunt.
Maybe next time I go visit I will take pictures of the book.

Rebecca K. said...

The last scrapbook I made was a 6x6 printed digital album I made using the Good Vibes album kit from Scrapbook Bytes. I gave this to my Mom and MIL for Mother's Day last weekend. They loved it!

Anonymous said...

I'm still in the process of putting a scrapbook together for my 23 year old son. I didn't start scrapbooking until a few years ago so its a work in progress from birth until present. I probably could finish it sooner if I didn't get sidetracked with the pictures and going down memory lane....oh well thats one of the great benefits of scrapbooking. Thanks so much for the chance at the kit. Your blog is saved as one of my favs

Rebecca said...

I try to scrap regularly! Here is one of my latest pages

Sandra L-M said...

The last scrapbook I made was for my parents and it documented our trip to Orlando to visit The Mouse. I didn't take a picture of it. Now I'm working on an Album for my mom, that documents many of the outfits she has made for my two daughters. Since I don't have a blog, I'll be e-mailing you a picture (hopefully soon!). Thanks for the wonderful candy. Sandra Lew-Moll

Heather S. said...

The last card sets I made were for my mom and mother in-law for mother's day. http://hwstevens.blogspot.com/2007/04/look-what-i-did-last-night.html

SusanH said...

The last scrapbook I made for someone was huge and definitely a labor of love - a very close friend of mine who is an artist (for real) was a student in the inaugural class of the SC Governor's School for the Arts so I scrapbooked his 2 years there - he loved it, still calls me when he's looking at it. It was fun, but a little bit of pressure since he's the artist (he just finished Ringling School of Art and Design!!)

Cafe Ink said...

If I am making for others, the lunch bag scrapbooks usually go over really well. Last year for Father's Day I made a lunch bag book for my now ex-boyfriend of his kids.

Steph said...

I am actually in the process of making my first gift scrapbook. I am making a 6 x 6 book of my daughter for my husband's grandma. She is absolutely smitten with this great grandbaby of hers so I thought I would make a brag book for her!

Lynn said...

Wow, those are some Oodagoodies! Every Christmas, I make a 6x6 album of my kids for my parents. It's a "year in review" kind of album. So, the last album I made was last Christmas.

Kenna said...

I love scrapbooking and card making. The most recent scrapbook I have been working on is for my second daughter. I am soooooooo far behind!

Kathy W said...

The last scrapbook I made was for my in-laws of our wedding. My father-in-law was too ill to attend, so I wanted a scrapbook that captured not just the ceremony but the whole flavor of what was going on that day. There was no color theme to the book; I pulled accents from the colors of the photos. I used some stamping, but no embellishements so it could lay flat. Thanks for offering such an awesome prize. You have such a creative blog.

Dotty said...

The last scrapbook I made was for my sister. Her first and my fourth trip to Australia. We had a marvelous time traveling around the country for a month and brought in the New Year in Sydney, sitting at the Opera House in the Harbor. It was by far my favorite scrapbook to make and I found it incredibly hard to give it to her when it was completed. I really need to make another for myself!! Thank you for the opportunity to win your incredibly generous blog goodies!!

Amie said...

Michelle said...

What an awesome giveaway! I've never scrapbooked for anyone else - though I have a couple of albums that I need to do for others. I have, however, made a few sets of cards for people. I made sets of 8 gift enclosures for my mom, aunt and boss last year for Christmas. Here's a link to part of them:

Adelina said...

The last album I made was for my mother. It was of my little girl, her only grandaughter. Here it is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wellsaid2u/sets/72157594330390118/

It was small and simple. My mother loved it and I really enjoyed making it.

Jan Scholl said...

Actually I am working on a Bo Bunny book for a friend who just had her third kid. It gets harder to buy stuff for babies when you already have it all-so the front cover will also have a pocket inside for a gift card. I am half done but ran out of paper so I need to go shopping again. Its a 6 by 6 but I dont have photos yet. My media card is full with weddign photos from son's ceremony that needs to be edited first.

Pat said...

The last card I made for someone was yesterday. It is a wedding shawer card for my cousin who is getting married in July. Here is the link ..

Kristy said...

The last scrapbook I made for someone was actually just finished over this past weekend. I made a wedding album for my best friend who will be married in June. I enjoyed putting it together for her and the only thing she will need to do is put in pictures and a few words. Here's a link to my blog where you can see all of the pages in the album: www.kvernon.blogspot.com

I really loved making it for her and her soon-to-be husband.

Denise said...

Oh my goodness! I am such a HUGE scrapbooker and I LOVE Heidi Swapp but I have never seen that set before! I GOTTA HAVE IT! Cross your fingers for me to win this one! Here is a layout I just did as a hostess for VSBN on SCS...

I did a I hope book for my 20 year old son using all kinds of photos from his younger years and each page with a I hope message. He Said it was the best birthday gift he ever recieved right up there with the leggo pirate ship when he was 9.

kamstamper said...

The last card that I made was for Mother's Day. I made her an accordian folded card and attached pictures of all her "kids". I turned out better than I expected. I wish I had taken a picture of it before I gave it to her.

Mary Campbell said...

I am new to stamping. I just made my first scrapbook. 8x8 My first grandchild was born in march and I have been working on a scrapbook of his first 2 months. I know it will not be the last one I do because I enjoyed it so much. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I love your blog esp. love the story of how you got the name for it.

Anne Marie said...

It has been awhile since I did a gift project so here is the last one I did. It was a book of abc's for my Mom and I split the alphabet with my SIL. I had tons of fun doing it. Thanks for the awesome goodies opportunity. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=8829

Caitlin said...

Hello! The last scrapbook I made for someone else was for my boyfriend, for Valentine's day. It was basically the story of our relationship so far. I have added pages since then as we do more stuff. Awesome candy, by the way!

Mary said...

For Christmas, I started an ABC book for my nephew, using stamps, stickers, diecuts, and pictures that I had of him. I had a ton of fun, and it was a great project to use some of the miscellaneous extras I have collected over the years! I also left room to continue the book -- or complete it with pictures for letters that I didn't yet have... So much fun -- and I am now working on a similar project for my son. He already LOVES looking at the pages I have completed. Thanks!

barb said...

The most recent gift item I created was for my great nephew. I altered a lunch box with Basic Grey papers, I believe I used Skate Shoppe with all the boyish frogs etc. It turned out so darling, if I may say so myself. I don't have pics on this pc, sadly. I also made a small paper bag scrapbook to go inside the lunchbox that I filled with milestone pictures of him from his first year. Great fun!

Thanks for a great blog!!

I am in the process of finishing baby announcements for someone....the last card I sent was to my DSS. I have to make two birthday cards by Saturday...I better get to work. :)

Susan Liles (susiestampalot) said...

i have made over 40 scrapbooks (wow! i never actually counted until now!). a bunch of them were gift albums for friends and family. the latest one i did was for my mother in law for Christmas last year. she abolutely loved it and shows it off any chance she gets! sorry, no picture. :(

Ellen Sutton said...

What great oodagoodies!!! I love your blog! I scrapbook but it is my family and event pictures. I am working on one of my brother's wedding and one for my mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary. I do love to do cards and I did one for my secret sister at SCS! No blog here just stalking everyone elses!!!

Cindy said...

The last card I made was a Mother's Day card for my mom. I also made a magnetic coaster with the kids' signatures on it, for her fridge... it coordinated with the card. She loved it!

Anonymous said...

Hi Charmaine,
I love your blog and that candy looks great! I am embarrassed to say that the last scrapbook I made was for my son - I did the whole first year - and that was almost two years ago. I have done a page here and there but not a lot. I make cards almost nightly though...I made a baby card and a birthday card for my friend recently.

Cheryl said...

I just finished two 8 X 8 albums for my new Step Son and new MIL. They are wedding albums. I just married my high school sweetheart after a 30+ year delay! His son was in our wedding and has been a real sweetheart. My DH's mom was very supportive of us getting back together and never gave up hope that we would. She couldn't be at the wedding so we chose her birthday, March 8th, to get married and wed did it at the High School where we met. The albums were my gifts to them for all their love and support.

BTW, WOW!!!!! on the giveaway. I've never seen this set and would FREAK out if I win!!

Love your blog.

Heather said...

I'm a stamper. The last card set I made was notecards for my mom. She really likes her name or initials on them but leaves the details to me! http://stampdetails.blogspot.com/2007/03/notecards-for-my-mom.html

Amber H said...

My last scrapbook was an 6x6 baby brag book for a soon-to-be mom and also one for the soon-to-be grandma. It was the hit of the shower. (used the scrapbook kits from SU)

My last set of cards was just a few weeks ago for my DDs teachers. They are posted on SCS in my gallery (bambi64) which seems to be down right now so I can't post a link. They were also featured in last weeks Try new Technique challenge!

The last album (which is my first album) I made is still not finished!! How terrible is that! I made my Grandma a "thank you" gift for helping with the planning of our wedding. With all of the wedding stuff I simply did not have time to finish it before the "BIG DAY"!!! But, I'm working on it again! Anyways...
I scanned old black and white pics of my grandma and grandpa when they were dating, just married, 50th anny, etc. It kinda' reads like a "love story" since it follows them through the years. I thought that this would be a great way for my Grandma to remember the good times she had with my Grandpa since he passed away in 2003. My scrapping isn't very good, but the pics of my grandparents are awesome!!! I'll try to post pics of the pages later today!

I really admire your creations! I've made a couple mini albums but haven't attempted a scrapbook yet. The last card I created was for a dry embossing swap...A theme of sea shells.

Hi, I love your blog. I am working on a scrapbook now for the band director, I made him one last year, so it's that time again. I try to put pictures that highlight the year, (trip to Arizona, competitions, etc).

Me and 4 friends decided to walk a 1/2 marathon. At the end, they took a picture of us. I ended up buying the picture and surprising my friends with it...I made a card using SU Big Blossom and the Circle of Friendship set...it made for a great memory!

Ooohhhh Charmaine, awesome goodies! Hmmm...I am a HUGE scrapbooker so that last one I did was for my son - I have been working on it all year long because it is a scrapbook (ended up being two)that chronicled all four years of high school. He graduates this Friday and will be giving it to him then! Alex

Hi Charmaine, I found you blog through another blog. I just love your work. The last thing I made was an accordion album for my new great niece. I just love doing these and they make such a nice gift. Here is the line to a picture of it.

Hi Charmaine,
I made a scrapbook for my husband for Valentine's Day - it was a gooey sweet one that I'm not sure if he appreciated, but I love it! LOL

BeverleyClaire said...

my brother has never forgiven himself for not showing up for dinner with us the night our mom passed away...so i made him a large scrapbook for christmas last year with pictures of all of us...and every picture I could find with him and our mom....well I thought he'd never stop crying...he loved it.

Selina said...

I am doing an on-going scrapbook for my in-laws. I did a scrapbook calendar page of my kids for each month that can be removed to put into a scrapbook. My goal is to do one for my family as well of all the grandchildren.

The last scrapbook that I made for someone was for my sisters wedding. And now I am working on a keepsake for her first little boy. Soon I'll do my mom's wedding which is this summer. I haven't even done my wedding from 10 years ago.
Thanks for all of your inspiration

Juile Masse said...

Great candy Charmaine - I 've never seen these but looks like fun! The last scrapbook I did for someone was for my mom and MIL. I usually do them a year's worth of pages for Mother's Day. For obvious reasons . . . which include me not planning ahead! :) . . . I did not get them done this year!

Jessica (jessrose21) said...

I'm not a scrapper so the last card I made was for my grandma for Mother's day. Thanks for the wonderful drawing!

tammy b said...

i'm having major upload issues at scs, but i'll post what i have so far 'cuz i know i'll forget!
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=28194
anyway, the last book i did was for my family.....dh mother passed away this past march so we had an emergency road trip so spearfish, s. dakota. i wanted to commemerate the journey (not just the physical aspect) as much as the family and the life of grandma. my twins are only 3 and didn't really get it, but the 5year old did. this is for them to remember.

Anne said...

That's easy...the last scrapbook I did was for my mom for Mother's Day. I was so late though so I had to send it out w/out taking pictures...better planning next time!

Dawn Mercedes said...

I can tell you that I'll be making a coaster scrapbook for my mom's god parents. (I haven't done it yet.) For easter, they slipped 5 dollars in a card for my kids. Which is so generous of them. So one day for lunch, we went to Little Cesears 5 dollar pizza. I photo documented the entire process of getting there, the boys buying the pizza, the DD in the car, coming home, eating the pizza...etc. So not I really better get those pix developed. This batch of goodies would be a help!!

Pat S. said...

Hi Charmaine!
I just found your blog from Allison...I see you advertise her blog, too :)

This is a really awesome contest...WOW!

I do not scrap, but I just made my first altered item. It is a frame that I made for my brother's 50th birthday.

Dawn DM said...

Wow, now that's some awesome candy!! The last scrapbook I put together was for my inlaws 50th wedding anniversary. I don't have any pics of it posted, but it's done in black, grey and burgundy. I was really happy with the way it turned out.

Jackie W. said...

I came upon your blog today and now have it favorited! I LOVE it! Anyway, the last card I made was for Kristina (kwernerdesign) as a thank you for winning her blog candy for the current Cards Magazine, which has her cards on the cover!

diane mcvey said...

Wow, that is awesome blog candy!!

What an awesome giveaway!! I love your blog, so full of inspiration! The last scrapbook I made for someone else was a farewell gift to my son's nanny when I decided to stay home with him & we no longer needed her. The link is to my shared Walgreens album - but I have no idea if this will work for you! :-)

Anna said...

HI! The last card I made for personal reasons was for a swap. It was using Bella stamps and I used Beachabella. (I did just get through with a Movable Card Class with 3 cards on this past Thursday: viewmaster, surprise pop up and flip flop fold) The last page I scrapped was me helping a friend scrapbook her daughter where is was dressed up like a fairy. Loved the page when we got done with it.

good question!
Anna

Peggy S said...

I'm really enjoying your blog....
I don't scrapbook but I would love to -- just don't know where to start!
But the last cards I made were Mother's Day cards-- a few for my Mother to send to her Godmothers and then I made a card for my Mom and my MIL and MIL's sister! It was a busy few weeks! :)

Sara said...

I am new to this whole idea of goodies, and found your blog through Fresh and Funs blog which gives me great inspiration! The last scrapbook I finished was a trip my DH and I took pre-baby to Israel. The trip was a blast and making the scrapbook really helped to solidfy the memories. The next book will be to chronical my DD's first year, I have one page finished so far and she just turned 1! Thanks for the chance on this...

sunnie said...

The last scrapbook I made was my daughters wedding album. My mom made a scrapbook about my childhood which was a total surprise - she never scrapbooked before. It is my most favorite possession.

Hi Charmaine,

I read your blog often and get great inspiration from your work. I'm amazed at how you get so much done with your two sweet little ones at home!

I scrapbook my families activities by year and so far have 8 books done and I'm only up to 1998! (started with the birth of my 2nd daughter in 1991) I'm not sure if I'll ever be "done" but then what would I do if I were? :o)

I don't post or scan either but I sure do enjoy seeing those who do!

Joyce T said...

Wow, would you look at those awesome Oodagoodies! Right now I mainly do cards but plan on scrapping in the very near future. My last card was my Mom's Mother's Day Cards. Had to make 2 because the first one didn't suit me.

Peggy Maier said...

I made my last scrapbook for our son (28 yrs old). It chronicled his life from birth to age 3. I had shown him some of it earlier & he didn't really seem interested, yet several months later asked when I was going to finish it! He was so proud of it he even took it to work & showed everyone there - that's amazing! My last card was made for a friend's birthday Saturday. Thanks for the chance at such neat blog candy again!

Pat S. said...

Gosh...that is wonderful candy!
I hope I still qualify to win, even though I don't scrap.

My new hobby is making cards with a stamp club...a terrific excuse to get together with friends :)

Laura said...

Charmaine, I love your blog! The last card I made was for a baby shower. I've not scrap booked, but am planning on starting...with my wedding pictures! Makes me a little nervous, but I know I can do it!

Sheila P said...

Charmaine--Love your blog--thanks for sharing all your wonderful thoughts and creations--my last card I made was actually about 15 of them for mother's day--the store I work in was having a Childrens Miracle Network Fund Raiser and I made and donated them to sell to the public.

Lilian said...

i love your gorgeous cards with it's bold and beautiful colors!

my last card set was made for my friend who just got married. not only did make all her invitations and programs, i also made all her wedding thank you cards.

Dreena Guptill said...

HIYA! Wow, bringing back the memories...

The last scrapbook (and only so far) I made was to help my mum create a book in memory of their vacation together. I thought it was going to kill me...I was hugely pregnant and had a hard time sitting for the extended sessions. I knew nothing of the fiskars cutter, scoring blades, Mono adhesives...nothing... We had glue sticks, fancy papers (cut with scissors and rulers) and a few funky embellishments. I did make a layout with a bear that I ended up drawing freehand and cutting out...sigh.

That aside, I may do another one soon...I have discovered stamping and all of the tools and tricks of the trade.

My next endeavour will be to teach my 9 year old to scrapbook so she can start making her own memory scrapbook!

The last card I made was for a friend's birthday. It was a 2 pocket card. I used a tutorial posted on Paula Goff's blog "Paula Ponders". I love pocket cards and special fold cards. I used Wild Asparagus 2-sided card stock that was a pink/lavender floral. I was really pleased with the end results and my girlfriend loved it. I don't have a blog or gallery yet but I'll try to email a picture to you.

Jackie said...

I made a set of 12 monogrammed note cards in a card portfolio for my friend in Texas that has her own stamp company. I just thought that she could use personalized note cards for notes to customers and things like that, and knew she didn't have the time to make them herself. So I made some using her favorite colors and she loved them!

kathy said...

The last thing I made as a gift was a wedding scrapbook album minus pics for my sister who is getting married in september

Kathryn said...

So many comments - so many people love you and your blog (including me!!!)I love making card sets to give as gifts. I recently used The Art of Life, a timeless set to make cards for a dear friend.

The last card I made (that I sent) was to my sister for her graduation. I make cards all the time for challenges or submissions or just for fun :)

What a fun, upbeat blog you have. It is so much fun to visit.
The last card I made for someone was made with Looks like Spring and Elegant Inspirations for a fellow and his wife on the occasion of his ordination in the Catholic church. It was very moving with everyone of his five children involved and his wife as well. If I knew how to upload photos to the computer and internet I would make a duplicate and post it. But I am challenged as far as computers go. Thanks again for a fun blog.

chinamomxtwo said...

Love your blog, found it about a month ago and am now addicted to stopping by at least once a day to see your art. You have great talent! :)
My last item made would be mother's day cards with stamping and Cricut....so pretty and very pink...and then I forgot to talke pictures! I also matched a RSVP pen with the base paper and microbeads.
As far as scrapbooks--I want my next one to be one of all the birthday cakes I've made my 2 girls each year--keep meaning to doit, but it just hasn't gotten done ...yet.
p.s : pick me!!pick me!!pick me!!pick me!!pick me!! =:-)

Hey Charlie,
I'm glad I'm hitting the deadline. I don't know why I didn't see this contest earlier. I'll give it another try to win the Oodagoodies. Let's see, the last time I made a scrapbook for a gift was for my Mom for our last vacation. We had a "girls only" week at the beach and I journaled our entire week including pictures, dates, funny things and not-so-funny things that happened. She loved it and has been on me to make her another one. I hope to have it done next weekend for her. Great work on your blog. I so enjoy it!

awoodrn said...

Hi Charmaine, The last scrapbook it did was for my best friends new baby boy. I have 2 little girls so this was a little challenging & completely out of my comfort zone.
