Crop night at Just Scrappin, my local scrapbook store


My local scrapbook store is call: "Just Scrappin" and it's located in Port Charlotte, Florida.

Every Friday the store has "Crop Night", and you can go from 10 am to 11 pm and scrap your heart out!.

I love the atmosphere in this place.

If you are new to scrapbooking or get stuck with a layout this is a great place to find some help, everyone is very friendly and you will feel right at home.
Most of the ladies make cards. But some of us love to scrapbook. We pack our Cricuts and cartridges and we head to the store, they have stamps, cricut products, bazzil paper, etc. They have a raffle every month, so everytime you buy something you get a ticket for a chance to win $25.00 gift certificate. The store also offers different classes. If the product you are looking for is not here , they can order for you.

If you live close by pay a visit to the store, you wont regret it.

And don't forget to mention that you find out about the store from my blog,
Who knows I might get to scrapbook until 2:00 am hahaha.

If you need more info contact Diane, she is the owner at 941-764-6400

Oh!... and the best part is that is that crop nights are FREE when you spend $10 or more.

Crop weekend at Just Scrappin


I made this layout with the Hello kitty Greeting, and I just love the cherries. My mom baked cupcakes for all the kids in our church.

Can I receive on my Second Can Swap

This are some pictures of the can I receive from my second can swap.

My second can swap


This is a picture of my second can swap at the cricut.com website. If you are not a member and have a cricut what are you waiting for?!
It was so much fun making this can, I had no idea how I was going to do this, but a visit to my local scrapbook store "Just Scrappin" and to Jo Anns, made it all possible.

The Dog in the front of the can is from the 'Animal Kingdom" cartridge. Just like always I use stickles to make my cuts pop out more.
This is the can I send and the goodies inside.


This layout was made using the following cricut cartridges "Hello kitty greetings" and "Life is a Beach".
I use stickles in some of the cuts,I made with the cricut, it makes them pop put .

I took this picture about two years ago, when our A/C broke in the middle of the summer . I live in Florida so the only thing I could do was to have a positive attitude about it and make sure my daughter was wearing a swimming suit every day.
You know what they say: "When life trows you lemons... you make lemonade"

Sesame Street

This is one of my favorite layouts. I don't have the Sesame Street cartridge but somebody really nice made this cuts for me (Thank you Wendy). My son loves this crackers that I get at the Spanish food aisle when I go food shopping. He only has couple of teeth so he scratches his gum's with the crackers.
The letters are made of foam. Since I don't have the red sissix cutting machine to cut the foam. I decide to buy the letters from a lady that only sells alphabets, numbers and flower made with different materials. The paper is also Sesame street.

Hello kitty

This was the first card I ever made using the Hello Kitty Greetings cricut cartridge. I don't like making cards. But this was very fun and easy to make. I recommend this cartridge. Because like I said before the cards are easy to make and you can make "get well soon" cards, birthday cards, christmas cards,"I'm sorry "cards, graduation cards, etc.

Buttons, buttons and more buttons!

As you can see I love buttons and when I had this picture of my 1 year old son printed in 7x7. I thought it's gotta have buttons everywhere.
This picture was taken at the park but I try to focus on his face. I usually take regular pictures with backgrounds, but this time it was all about him.
