I'm a fan of double-page layouts for the simple fact that they can hold a bunch more photos (and isn't preserving all those scenes the main reason we scrapbook??) One of my favorite two-page techniques is to select a series... Continue reading

I know Halloween is this Saturday, but I still haven't gotten my lazy butt in gear to decorate for fall. Don't get me wrong - it's my favorite time of year - and I actually had plans to doll up... Continue reading

Autumn layouts are some of my favorites to create, mostly because I usually have some great photos from our local pumpkin patch or trips to see the changing leaves. Of course, as my kids have gotten older (and, um, a... Continue reading

Double-page layouts are some of my favorites to complete as the extra canvas room always sparks my mojo! Plus, I can usually incorporate standard 4x6 photos and don't have to reduce the size of my pictures to get them all... Continue reading

It's been a smoky, hazy and hot weekend here in Colorado. The multiple wildfires throughout the state have made our normally bright blue skies gray and depressing. Ah, 2020, you just keep finding ways to get crappier! So while we... Continue reading

After completing our first partial week of online school, I'm definitely ready for the weekend (and dang thrilled not to be googling Algebra II equations and hearing complaints about our crappy wifi). I'm planning to carve out a little time... Continue reading

Documenting Hayden's graduation from high school was a daunting task for me. First off, just looking at the photos got me all weepy and teary-eyed and everyone knows you shouldn't wield scissors when your eyes are all misty. Secondly, I... Continue reading

Despite the technological wonders that fill our lives today (hello tv on demand and music streaming wherever the heck you want it!) I am still a lover of print media. There's just something about holding a book or hot-off-the-press magazine... Continue reading

I have a huge stack of layouts that have never seen the light of day (on this blog, anyway). Truthfully, they get plenty of light on my dining room table where they've been happily living for many years, moving only... Continue reading
