Hey there friends! I know I've been MIA around here, but blogging has slipped to the very bottom of my summer priority list. The all-important tasks of soaking up sun, consuming outrageous quantities of BBQ and generally savoring every little... Continue reading

I bet you thought when I said I'd be posting more regularly once we got into our summer routine, it meant more than once a week, huh? Turns out, my kids aren't too into the whole "kick-back-and-relax" kind of summer... Continue reading

Summer has officially arrived in Colorado! I can tell because the flowers are in full bloom, the days are sunny (and getting longer!) and my Mom Taxi is working overtime trying to get kids to all their activities! I haven't... Continue reading

Hey Ashley! Yes, that crate is from Target! They often put them on sale late summer and they are usually under $4 each :)

Banners are such a fun page accent, and you often see small rows of banners (also known as garland or bunting) strung across the corner of a page as a whimsical embellishment. But banners can also be used as a... Continue reading

Yes, I do know it's Thursday, but it's been a whirlwind week with the end of school (and accompanying activities), a quick getaway to the mountains for the long weekend (with no internet service) and generally a very full schedule... Continue reading

We're having another rainy, dreary day here in Colorado and while I should probably be working on the family Ark, I've been flipping through my pile of recent layouts and reminiscing. It's definitely got me dreaming of sunshine and beaches,... Continue reading

I'm so excited to be a part of another PageMaps University class, this time focusing on my very favorite scrapbook tool - the Silhouette! If you're new to digital cutting (or trying to figure out if you want to delve... Continue reading

A few months back when I asked for suggestions on blog content, several readers suggested I share photos of where I scrap and some of the tips and tricks I use to organize my space. Since a full-blown tour would... Continue reading

I'm just now getting around to editing our spring break photos from Mexico, and thought I'd share a few of my favorites here today. And since while viewing other people's vacation photos is best done with la large supply of... Continue reading

Though I've always had a deep seated love for stripes, most of the pieces I've added to my closet are black, navy, or gray. But I seem to be gravitating toward red this spring. Maybe because it pairs so dang... Continue reading

I know I've mentioned my fondness for the 9-square grid here before and you've seen countless pages from me using it. But another favorite (that I don't think I've used here lately!) is a grid based in rectangles, rather than... Continue reading

Looking back through any given week of scrapbook postings on the blog, it's not too hard to see I rely heavily on my Silhouette Cameo for most of my page designs. When I got the machine (back in 2010, maybe?)... Continue reading

I am admittedly not that great of a stamper, but I do enjoy experimenting with stamps every once and awhile. Recently I tried my hand at making a patterned paper with some of the smaller Elle's Studio stamps and I... Continue reading

Hey Michelle! That font (Arial Black) is one that's fairly easy to hand-cut...I know because I used it a lot before I had my Cameo! :) And the twine is fun way to add that little something extra!

We've definitely had our share of April showers these past few days, and now things outside are getting green and very close to blooming. It's always pretty exciting to know I didn't kill all the flowers with my brown thumb... Continue reading

When it comes to layout designs, one of the easiest ways I know to keep it simple is to fill a majority of the page with a photo. I especially love this technique for stellar shots - it's a great... Continue reading
