Here we all .. Christmas over and heading towards welcoming in a new year. My friend Nat is once again doing her .."Bye bye 2010" posts this week, and I'm joining in. You can read about it here on Nat's blog, but the just of it is, that she is doing two different posts, one ..posting her favorite layouts (she created) in 2010 and the other posting her favorite photos (she's taken) turning 2010. I see that Nat is posting (12) layouts and photos. What I'm doing is just sharing some from each of the companies I do work for. I guess I don't have a set number. lol.. just some from each. It's was kind of fun to look back on these as I was choosing. Fun to look back on the new products these companies have come out with over the past year and how they have grown.
I know Natalie would love to have you join in and post your favorites. Feel free to use her image below if you do ,and link to her. Natalie Kalbach "Scrapbook Trends"
I will be posting some layouts and some projects for "bye bye 2010" post
Hope you enjoy!
I'll start with Crafty Secrets Projects....
I had alot of fun creating this little book from a 12x12 piece of paper, stitching, some Glimmer Mist and Crafty Secrets "Altered Fairy" Creative Scraps.
This piece started with a piece of corrugation from the side of a box and some old sewing patterns.
Images from Crafty Secrets.
The frame below is simple but still a favorite. It was done with a $1 Store frame and a Dahlia stamp from Crafty Secrets. (the stamp was stamped only with black ink on the actual plain mat the that came with the frame).
Another ..bit more "Altered" frame using Crafty Secrets "Birds and Blossoms" Creative Scraps.
The next few projects are from Fancy Pants.
I'm not sure if it's the layouts or the darling photos that I like on these. lol
The one below of A.. is done on a canvas
I don't do "guy" layouts often enough..so I guess I'm just happy to have this one.
We were asked to do a layout that we thought best represented "our style" .. this is the one I did.
I gave this to my sister as a gift..but It's probably one of my very favorites. I was happy with how it turned out.
This is one of my newest projects done with TA products. (Glimmer Glaze on Glass)
Below... I love trying something new.. and was so excited to see the effect you get when using your Screens to emboss. ( this was done on a piece of soft copper sheeting...by running it through my wizard machine)
well, you can imagine that as far as AccuCut projects this year... having my own die made was defiantly the highlight! lol So I have to share projects done with that right? totally!
Crafty Secrets Products and this die, are a match made in heaven ..that's for sure.
Vintage Street Market
Its only been a short time but I have had SO much fun with kits from VTM. Keep your eyes on them because CHA is going to be bringing exciting NEW products from them that will make you very HAPPY!
Here are some of my favorite projects that I've created with their kits.

wow..that's a "bunch" of stuff. lol I am SO lucky to get to create for companies that have such fantastic and inspirational products. Lucky me huh?
Thank you for all the times you stopped by in 2010 and left comments and words of encouragement. They always brighten my day! You guys are the best!
Here's to another year of creativity and friendship!
