I have to say this month's BYOC is one of my all time favorites in all the days I've scrapped with them and called TLP home. There is something so cheerful about the colors and it just oozed into the products in such a happy way. And so in the... Continue reading

Crystal and I wanted to take a moment to again thank everyone who submitted applications to our Grow With Love creative call.

So I have a confession. I'm kind of a wordy girl. I heard it said somewhere "anyone who uses one word, when they could have used ten, just isn't trying hard enough" and I felt like that line was written just for me. I wouldn't say I am "windbaggy" per... Continue reading

"Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite"....somehow these words have glued themselves to my thoughts when I think of goodnights and bedtimes and splashes of silly at the end of the day. And that's just what I love most about Sandra's fabulous creations in the kit: the... Continue reading

So I've had a few people ask me what the "mfeo" in my latest Ooey-Gooey {clipped} + {story seeds} release means and so I figured I'd share at the risk of further deeming myself a HUGE geek. So here goes. MFEO is something that stuck with me from the film... Continue reading

Soooo, by now you know I'm pretty much a complete goob with a soft spot for cheesyness. And so it's probably no surprise that I rather like this lovey time of year swirling around Valentine's Day here in the U.S. I know the holiday itself is pretty much manufactured and... Continue reading

Happy Friday, Happy February, and Happy BYOC! Once upon a time I was intimidated by photo-less scrapbooking. Now, I'm positively in love with it. I find myself feeling even more creative and loving my pages even more when I let myself scrap without photos. And that photo-less spirit and empowerment... Continue reading
