Back to Blogging!!!


My apologies for not blogging lately, things have been over the top busy as I have adjusted to my work schedule.  Yes, I started a full time job that I love, working at Cornerstone Auto Resource in Plymouth Mn.  Stop by sometime and say hey!!!

In the meantime, my kids and hubby are still awesome.  And I have been creating lots of fun things with my CM stuff.  This is the year to embrace the traditional scrapbooking for me, and I am loving it!  Here are a couple of pages I made, and have hanging around the house in my CM frames...and speaking of frames, there are a few of my brother Todd, who passed away just a few weeks ago in digital format.  I brought the frames to the funeral home and had them all around.

My love of CM products started with digital, including hosting Tecki Tuesdays each week where you can come and learn for free.  But it has moved into a  lot more as I have been invited by hosts gathering friends and family to learn digital as well.  Invite me to your place, whether a church or home.  I will be happy to teach you what I have learned, and share my resources:)

Photos are still my love, and although I am on the hunt for a new camera and am working only with my cell camera right now I am STILL taking tons of photos.  If you get a chance to visit my Facebook pages, whether personal or business   I have lots of fun photos including my smilies album.  I love to capture those smilies wherever I go, and I have even had friends send me their smilies.  Happy faces found in everyday life!!!  Here are a couple of examples...

Do you see the smiles?  Its funny how when you start to look for things, they are all around you.  I encourage you to look for the smiles all around YOU!!!  And send me your photos too.  I would love to share them.

How about some time to play?  Have you been looking for a crafty day?  Well  you are definitely invited to my National Scrapbook Day, which will be Saturday April 28th from 9am-midnight.  Just $35 gets your space to play, make and takes, door prizes, two meals, snacks water and more.  For those of you card makers, I will be bringing the BRAND NEW CM STAMPER SYSTEM!  Here is the video to see how it works...I am SO excited that CM has stamps now.  They are limited edition, so order early and I will bring your things to the crop.

Oh I do hope you can join me for the fun!!!

Thanks for asking how things are around here, and I am SURE to keep up on posting as soon as I can now.  Have a Blessed day, and be a blessing to someone who needs it.  Even if you might not want to, YOU could be the best thing that happens to them all day!

Not only do I papercraft...

But I actually love to sew!  Here is a sample of some keychain wristlets I made for friends and family at Christmastime.  Do you like them?  They were SO much fun to make, selecting the perfect fabric for each person.  Would you like to see them on Etsy this spring?  I love sharing!!!

2011 Christmas card

2011 has been a good year for the Brissebunch.  Next year is expected to top the charts!  Our Christmas blessings come to you by way of my digital card this year.  Enjoy!
We started out with this fun and easy 4 x 8 flat photo card...and transformed it right into a 5x7 folded card, complete with lime green envies.  Now that should stick out in the mailbox!

Tips for creative ideas like this card are on my facebook business page, and each week at our tecki tuesday classes...why not make 2012 your best year yet, including investing in yourself, and your memory celebration.  Be Blessed in the new year my friends:)

p.s.  Here is the back of our holiday card this year.  Hope you like it!

Cyber Monday Creative Memories blessings

Sooo...the house is trashed and the feast was devoured.  The Thanksgiving weekend is over, and what do we do now? 
Ok, shop but the one thing that sticks out in my mind is to remember the blessings that we are celebrating in our lives.
Shop...yes shop!  But while you are thinking of those friends and family members that are blessings to you, think about what a difference you can make in their lives.  If you were to express yourself to those very important people, what would you want them to know?  How can YOU be a blessing to them?
1.  Tell them - write notes, cards, storybooks.
2.  Show them - create photo panels, everyday displays and albums.
3.  Brag about them to others - share the memories with others all around!
If you have not finished your shopping yet ( who does that before Dec 1?) then make your list, check it twice and give those you love the blessings of CM!  Seriously, heartfelt gifts are the best afterall:)
Join us for Tecki Tuesday tomorrow, just let me know if you are planning to attend!
9-12 am, 7-10pm

Thanksgiving is in the air

Good morning!  Today I am feeling so very blessed and wanted to know if you are too.  Sharing blessings with others helps us to recognize all that we have.  Remember, it is about wanting what you have!

Today I am sharing a blessing...ADAM!  Our youngest son, he just turned 15 in October and I am so grateful for him. Adam is sweet, quiet and a serious thinker.  Looking back on these photos really makes my heart smile.  I am SO glad I took them , as he grew up so fast. 

Enjoy your photos!  And to learn more about taking simple but great photos, check out this awesome site HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR BABY.  I met and spent some time with Nick Kelsh in Minneapolis this summer.  He is all about getting those pics.  And quite entertaining as well!!!
