About Me

My photo
I LOVE scrap'n, craft'n and bake'n!!! I try all sorts of different tricks and I am a big fan of LOTS of color :) I bake and craft for my husband who has a love hate relationship with my baking and I bake for our wonderful Mini Church that happens every Wednesday. It's a great way to start our night and to gear us up to dig into the Word of God. I take different ideas that I see all around the world and combine them to make my own fun new project. I also have some great originals :] It's so amazing to see how creative people are and I love a good challenge. I have aprons & picture boards on my website www.DeLo-Designs.com and on Facebook, search for DeLo Designs. "Sassy Cakes" is our baking company, we have a Facebook page up with a lot of our creations listed on the site. Please check us out and "like" us :] Thank you and enjoy the site!!!

Crafting in Lieu of Cupcakes...

Yes, you heard it right, it's a scrapbook post today! I figured until I can get some cuppies out of the oven I would blog about my other favorite hobby... Scrap'n! I will apologize in advance for the picture quality. I decided I would FINALLY start on my wedding album. I am so happy with how it's turning out. For those of you who have NEVER scrap'd before, it is a very long process with all the embellishments (or lies as Jeremy calls them), glue, tape, dye cuts...the list goes on! Anyways the long time spent is so worth the end result. 

Here is the Fist Page.. Simple but nice

I had so much fun doing these pages... I LOVE purple (obviously) It was the color of my wedding so the book had to be purple themed too. I can't wait to get more done this weekend. I have been pretty busy with work stuff... but now I got some free time! 

This Last weekend I also did a baby shower card, I figured why not post  it with my scrapbook... First comes marriage then comes baby *wink wink* I really like funky stuff, but I also can go polar opposite with chic and simple. I think they both look nice.  Considering our friend was having a little girl I decided pink was pretty mandatory.

The card turned out great and I was really happy with it! Jennie (the lady of the hour) was super happy with it too. Along with this I gave her and Matt (her husband and J's long time BFF) a "Baby" word book that my sister creates and sells. You can see what I gave her at Coley's Craft Corner. She has them for order and she is obviously amazing with the Cricky. Well I will "talk" to you all soon. I'm doing a practice run this Saturday for some cupcakes for my friend's daughter Izzy. She is turning 1!!! I believe we are making Giraffes so that should be fun... Have a blessed week everyone!
