We have officially wrapped up the 2019-20 school year in the Dickinson household, with one finishing his freshman year of college and one finishing her freshman year of high school. And while wasn't the type of ending we ever predicted,... Continue reading

Since spring break didn't technically happen this year, I've been looking through photos of past vacations to make myself feel better about missing out on this annual trip. Though technically, if you consider the amount of day drinking, napping and... Continue reading

Scrapbook inspiration can be found in the most unusual places! I've had pages inspired by billboards, menus, wine labels and clothing catalogs. My most recent page was created after flipping through some of my daughter's favorite coloring books. I loved... Continue reading

Hi Carol! I'm sorry but the boxes are all sold out. They only lasted about 7 minutes after I posted them for sale :) I'll be doing another sale in about 6 months, though!

Hope you all are enjoying the celebration of International Scrapbook Day and doing something scrappy today...or at least sniffing your scrapbook papers, because there's no other day you can do this without being harshly judged by your family and any... Continue reading

One of the many events I am missing this spring is the musical theater productions with our local Arts Hub that Riely is usually involved in. She has really come into her own on stage. It's such a cool feeling... Continue reading

Despite the fact that it snowed 8 inches last week, I'm pretty sure by looking at the calendar that it is, indeed, SPRING. Just don't ask me what day of the week it is. But crappy weather and quarantine day... Continue reading

UPDATE: ALL BOXES HAVE SOLD OUT - THANK YOU! Since spring is the time to clean.all.the.things (and what else are we gonna do right now?) I decided to tackle my scrap closet. I've been collecting products for three years since... Continue reading

Being a graphic artist, a perfectly executed page design with plenty of white space makes my heart soar and my eyes dance. But just because I love my white space, doesn't mean I don't want to fill up my page... Continue reading

I've recently been perusing old layouts, looking for techniques that are tried-and-true to create a stunning page. And circles are definitely a recurring theme in many of my designs. They are one of the easiest ways to add energy to... Continue reading

Thanks for stopping by Linda! I have quite a stack of layouts that I plan to redo, so this should be a more regular feature on the blog now. And I'm horrified that wine isn't considered an essential during this crazy time - sending you hugs and hoping this passes quickly!

There's nothing like a fresh piece of patterned paper, all crisp and bright and ready to use. Not to mention freshly printed paper always smells so wonderful...or am I the only one who sniffs scrapbook paper?! Regardless, I love my... Continue reading

It's no secret that my most-used scrapbooking tool is my Silhouette Cameo. It truly revolutionized the way I scrap - and kept me from going mad trying to cut out intricate embellishments with mere scissors!. Yes, I did that...poorly. But... Continue reading

As the quarantine lengthens and we all start to lose track of days (and possibly lose our minds a little bit, too) I'm finding one bright spot amid this new life: the free time to look through scrapbooks! I've been... Continue reading

It's officially our spring break week and while we we were supposed to have our butts planted in the sand in Mexico, instead we are fighting cabin fever and trying not to drive one another absolutely crazy. Day drinking, anyone?!... Continue reading

Gosh the world has become a crazy place in the last few days. Schools are cancelled, travel bans are in place, and the hope of finding a single roll of Charmin at the local grocery store has long been crushed.... Continue reading

Since February in Colorado has been all about the snow, I figured it's appropriate that I share my layouts with the winter SCT Delivered Kit, Let It Snow! It's a good thing we didn't name the kits Let It Blow... Continue reading

This past July, Mike and I reached 21 years of wedded bliss so our marriage is officially old enough to drink. And anyone who's been married that long knows that some days definitely require a few beers. With a chaser... Continue reading

One of my favorite purchases for summer wear were these camouflage shorts from Target. They are soft, they are stretchy, and they are just GOOD. (Quick disclaimer: I cut off the cuffs so they'd have raw hems. I have long-standing... Continue reading

We've had such a mild summer here in Colorado, with most days in the mid-80s and afternoon thunderstorms almost everyday that keep it nice and cool. And I totally don't hate it. My flower pots are flourishing, the air conditioning... Continue reading

Last spring our family made the decision to start fostering dogs for a local rescue (from whom both of our Great Danes were adopted) and since then, we've hosted eight dogs while they waited to find their forever homes. And... Continue reading

Thanks Leslie! I appreciate you stopping in & saying hi. And YES - making cards does help eliminate a little bit of the "bomb effect" that seems to happen whenever I get in a creating frenzy :)

Hi Tina! Thanks for stopping by & taking time to comment! :) And yep, I’m totally guilty of planning photos around perfect paper - it’s a dirty little scrapbook secret 🤣

I'm definitely not known as a card maker, but after recently having an awkward moment standing in the middle of the Target greeting card aisle and loudly proclaiming that STORE BOUGHT CARDS ARE A TOTAL RIP OFF (much to the... Continue reading
