Out of Focus: Jen

post from IIG--Posted: 05 Dec 2011 09:00 PM PST

With this page, the pictures seem to tell the story. Even though the two pics were a little blurry the pics still seem to capture the motion of the ride and the expressions on my dd and dh's faces. My conclusion, my daughter and husband had so much fun on this ride!!

Jen's Bird

(Posted from the IIG blog)

 14 Nov 2011 09:00 PM PST

Do well call our kids money and bird? I wonder because I hear lots of parents call their kids monkey...and I do that, but the other thing is that I call my youngest Blue bird and here is Jen today talking about her bird too! I guess we must think of cute little baby animals and then relate them to our own cute little babies :)

For this page of my oldest daughter, I just loved how the colors of the papers matched her shirt. I then used matching border and word stickers to anchor her picture on the paper and added the title above( which is one of her many nicknames I call her)and added a bird sticker to go with the title, and that was it a super simple page. tfl!

My Scrappy Style: Jen T

( from the IIG blog) Posted: 05 Nov 2011 09:00 PM PDT

My scrappy style? Don't laugh but for me it depends on lots of things .it depends on the picture I am using, the mood I am in , the trend I am into at that time..LOL! Lately I have been into diecut papers and simple embellies like my page here of my dd 9 yrs old as a tween.. Here, I just let the paper help me frame the photo added a diecut scroll and a pretty flower to enhance my pic. Simple. That day I felt my scrappy style ...a little of everything mood and all! :) tfl!

Happy Halloween! 

Posted: 30 Oct 2011 09:00 PM PDT

It is here! The biggest spookiest night of the year! If you have not made a card for your little goblin let Jen inspire you with one of hers :)She also is showing off an altered frame project that is sure to help decorate the home!!!

Have a wonderful time tonight!!!

From Jen:
Boo! Did I scare you?! Lol! I made this card to spread some Halloween happiness to a friend..To make this card, I just used up my Halloween papers scraps . Added a ghost brad and glitter stickers with a paper rosette and vintage button and wahla! A bootiful card in no time :)tfl! Happy Halloween!

More from Jen:
Happy Halloween!! Today I just wanted to share with you all a frame that I made. I used an old frame I no
longer used and then painted it tan and then used Tim. Holtz black distress paint as the final coat. Let it dry
and watch crackling happen! ( so fun!) Then I ripped a page of text from a antique design book I had and
used that as the matte of the pic frame. Then I added a owl silhouette ( I got a whole pack of silhouette
diecuts in the Halloween section of my dollar store) added some glitter glue over the top of it. Then let is dry
good. Adhere the diecut to the text paper and assemble frame. Happy spooky decorating!!

 tfl!   happy halloween!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  jen t.

Home Sweet Home with Jen T

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 09:00 PM PDT

Lacey twp., NJ is the town I call home sweet home or a.k.a. my hometown. I love living here for all the reasons listed on my page and for many others too like the schools are great and our town events are so fun! Glad you got a glimpse of my town! Let's see yours.

October Challenge Coming Tomorrow!

Posted: 20 Oct 2011 06:47 PM PDT

Hi Groovy Girls and Guys!

Tomorrow will start our October challenge. Are you ready? The Groovy Chicks and I will be showing you all about our homes and we would love to have you join in! Now this is not about your home as in your house, but instead it is all about your hometown. I am a fan of travel so it is always cool to see what makes your hometown a special place. History of your town is so important! Perhaps you will be inspired and start scrapbooking as the town historian. Ask your library about it...they may need you!!!

See you at 12am where we will begin this challenge. If you would like to enter. Send yours to to be enter for a prize donated by me!!!

my page on -the If It's Groovy blog 

from the IIG blog--Monochromatic Page

Posted: 09 Oct 2011 05:08 PM PDT

Jen is showing us a great monochromatic page today of her and her little girl! Have you taken a pic with your children lately? It is such a good plan to include in their albums!!!

I just love this pic of my daughter and me at a friend's party so much. I just had to scrapbook it, Of course! :) When I grabbed this brown and tan paper it just went perfectly with the colors in our pic and so I just matted the pic on brown cardstock added a sticker tag and butterfly sticker as embellies and accented the butterflies with stickles and Prima gems for a quick but girly page. Tfl!
