"Party" seems to be...

the theme lately. With the January Quickutz release, everyone has party on the brain. Friday I showed you this post with Jenn's 'All Aboard the Birthday Train' layout and today, the other half of the layout!

Check out that Confetti Border! What a great border. You could cut it down for card fronts, run it continuously across a double page many choices!!! Jenn used some more Scenic Route Surprise papers and the Quickutz Bead Border. Two fabulous pages!

Brenda scrapped some birthday pics too. Check out her layout!

Brenda also used some Scenic Route Surprise papers from her stash as well as the new Quickutz Revolution Candles, the new 2x2 number candles, the Happy Birthday, and the new Banana Split 4x8 Alphabet. See what Brenda did with the candles? She used the to help her journal by adding her daughter's name and birthday! So clever! I just love that candle border!!

Tammy's layout shows us the versatility of this birthday release.

She used the Silhouette balloon border download. I love how she used the Chemistry 4x8 font on top of the balloons for her title! The papers are from Scenic Route's Liberty collection. What a great layout!

You know, nothing shows versatility like a die innovation. Check out with Brenda did with the December Damask double die.

Brenda used the Damask to create this elegant butterfly! Is that not gorgeous?! But she didnt' stop there, look what she did with that butterfly!

To create this plate, Brenda used the EtchAll glass etching cream! In addition to the Damask she used the Quickutz Butterfly body. You could make entire place settings perfect for any dinner and/or party! That plate is just beautiful! A video tutorial on glass etching is coming soon!

Now, I don't know about you but where I'm at we've had some unseasonalby warm weather. Not everyone has been so lucky. Our friend and DT member CraftyDeb has created these wonderful borders for those of you who have some "winter" weather photos!

Crafty Deb used the ever-popular Rockstar alphabet to for her title, the Quickutz Winter Cookie Cutter shapes, and the 12" Bead Border. CraftyDeb told me she thinks the white bead border looks like snowballs and I have to agree! With these great borders all you need is photos! Too cute!

Before I leave you today, I want to show you one more project. This layout comes from our friend PJ.

Here's PJ's thoughts on her layout:

Start a New Tradition…

It seems that with the start of a new year, it is appropriate to think about starting a new tradition as well. At our house we love going to the movies. I save the ticket stubs from each of the movies we have gone to see throughout the year. I review each of the movies and I make sure that I scrapbook that layout first in the new year. It brings closure to one year and allows you to start fresh for next year. I challenge you to save your ticket stubs for 2009, start a new tradition. Make a special envelope, put it in your jewelry drawer and keep adding your tickets after each movie. Once you start, it’s second nature to just pull them out of your purse and put them away. I promise, it’s fun to look back and see what movies you loved and those you wouldn’t see again. Even the kids get into the spirit and revisit old movies that they might have forgotten about.

Happy 2009
PJ your resident Photo Junkie

Well, how 'bout that. Some great projects, huh?! We'll be back here for our usual Wednesday post and keep your eyes peeled for another video! On a side note, I have cancelled our Feedblitz account. As I'm sure you know we've had some issues and you all were getting numerous emails per day. I apologize for the confusion. I'm in the process of finding another way we can bring our updates right to you. In the mean time, we hope you continue to find your way here. Some great things are coming so stay tuned! Thanks for stoppin' by!
