I don't scrapbook as much as I want to but the last couple years the trend is baby girl gifts for friends. (I'm working on two now and still need to put up pics from three others I did!) I have to be careful about this b/c I will get... Continue reading
I recently posted the baby album that I made for my friend Ann's daughter, Ella. She is about to turn one so I made a double page LO to add in her album for her birthday party. I used October Afternoon's 'Cakewalk' collection for most of my supplies. I always... Continue reading
Do you remember when it seemed like all your friends were getting married? Then having babies? Right now I'm in one of those phases. My friends are either having their first or next round of kids and interestingly, they're mostly all girls. Having no daughters of my own, I find... Continue reading
I hope I can win. I love this collection. I want to use it for a baby girl album I'm designing for my best friend who (today) found out she's having a daughter. The pink, aqua and gold would fit so well on a girl album!!!
This collection is so wickedly cool! I love the spooky cupcakes!!!!
Tonight I wanted to go artsy for a LO about my son's art camp last year. I decided to sling/splatter paint in rainbow colors using Heidi Swapp's color shine mists. Here is the paper before and after embellishing. It was super easy and I love the outcome! The splatters have... Continue reading
Do you ever find yourself in a habit you didn't realize you had? I have challenged myself to start using more cream or beige in my layouts lately. I love white...white rooms, white trim, white everything so I rarely reach for off-whites in my scrapbooking. Last Christmas, I participated in... Continue reading
I've got a son, and it almost feels like culture shock when I have an opportunity to scrapbook anything for baby girl gifts. My friends, Nat and Amanda, had a little girl last year, Naomi, and I used Crate Paper's line, 'Little Bo Peep' for most of the album. It... Continue reading
My son's 1st grade LO will work so well with this line. YAY!
Really love this collection! My son's 1st grade LO is up to be scrapped. This collection would be PERFECT!
Congrats on wrapping up your 2012 album! That's always a great feeling. Love your use of the cards along with paper and the hemp added the PERFECT touch, didn't it? Great use of product.
I absolutely LOVE your layout. The leaves are the perfect touch and I thought your use of the PL cards was really cool. I don't do PL but really want the cards in this collection so this was good inspiration for how to use on a traditional layout. Lovely job!!

I went to my first official crop tonight. I joked about it a lot that after 17 years of scrapping I am still a newbie at some things. I've scrapped with friends before but never an official "crop." Tonight I went to Archivers in Buford, GA. I had the most... Continue reading
It's kind of scary to realize how much I'm already forgetting. It's only 2013 for crying out loud! Looking back over 2011 was interesting for me. It's amazing how much happens in the short span of a year. Would you like a sneak peek into the album for 2011? Here... Continue reading
I love to finish a project...I need resolution in most areas of my life. So it's only natural that unfinished projects haunt me in my sleep and taunt me from their unfinished state while they lay open on my dining room table...waiting...waiting for me to FINISH them. I stopped scrapbooking... Continue reading
