Sorry I haven't updated in a bit! I've been so busy with all the holiday stuff going on, I haven't had much in the way of spare time. I did an album for my mom for Christmas (pics incoming!) and that took a lottttt of work, hehe. ;) This was my first time sitting down to do a whole project; up until now I've really only done single pages here and there for my own album. Can't wait to post the pics though, I like the finished product a lot. Just gotta download them from my camera. ;) I hope... Continue reading

So, for my birthday this year, Shelby gave me a whole set of Smooch (yes, my sister is awesome)! I love this stuff... So much that I'm starting to wonder how I ever scrapped without it. =) So I've been playing around with it, and here are two layouts that I did with it. For the first one, I just used the Smooch to highlight the designs that were already on the paper: For the second one, I used Smooch to make the alphas. They were just plain chipboard, so I used three different Smooch colors (+ a little bit... Continue reading

I can't get enough of Pink Paislee's Amber Road collection; it is so perfect for fall! I just did a layout tonight with it: I just have to make sure I actually save some of it for my Thanksgiving pictures... =P Continue reading

Today I am putting together my application for the Elle’s Studio design team search. This is my first time ever formally applying to a design team, so I’m really nervous! I’m always soo critical of my own work. Lol. I know a lot of other people probably feel like that too. Anyway, Shelby carries a lot of their stuff and I adore all of it, so it would be really cool to be a part of their team. Wish me luck!! ;) Continue reading

I had some fun doing this layout last night. I used a variation of the masking/stamping technique that Shelby is teaching in her November class. Continue reading

Scrap with Shelby just had a "Think Green" recycling contest for October. Here is my entry (I used the packaging from my Elle's Studios tags and the packaging from a pack of Prima flowers): You can vote to choose the winner here. (You do have to register for her forums in order to vote). The challenge for November is to create a layout or project using at least 5 buttons. Looks like I'll finally have to hunt down all those stray buttons and put them to good use! Continue reading

I am 27 years old. I currently live in Alexandria, Virginia; although, “home” is really Philadelphia. I moved here for work almost two years ago, and I’ve been missing family and friends ever since. Luckily, I have my boyfriend, Ben, here with me, and he is a blessing in my life. I have always been good at all things creative: art, music… You get the idea. Awhile ago my sister started this scrapbooking business, Scrap with Shelby. I had no idea what scrapbooking was, really. When I was in high school, I used to paste pictures into spiral bound sketch... Continue reading
