A few years ago (more like 4) we went out and used the fall colors as a backdrop for our family pictures and we have finally got around to scrapbooking them so here is a fun fall layout that you can use. Echo Park has this great paper pack just for fall that works perfectly for these pictures. It also allowed us a lot of different color options for the leaves which is quite important for this layout because they are everywhere just like my front yard. The leaves were just cut using Spellbinders little leaf set and Heather just

Yes it is that time of year again to dress up all your witches and ghosts and send them off to trick-or-treat and to scrapbook all of those memories. Here is a Halloween page layout that you can use for some of those pictures you will be taking.
Bo Bunny makes this one really easy with its Fright Delight Paper Collection Pack which includes stickers with fun little pictures, tags, and sayings like the ones we used. I love when I get paper that does most of the work of scrapbooking. Heather also used Hero Arts “You Scare Me” stamp set

Night night, Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite–Heather and I have been wanting to use these sleeping photos for a long time because they are so cute and Heather found the perfect page layout for them. Isn’t it funny how no matter how naughty your kids are through out the day when you look at them sleeping at the end of the day they can just melt your heart away again. We have to laugh at this one of Trista who fell asleep on the bathroom sink, now that is called TIRED!
This layout all started with Graphic 45

We have a blank wall in need of filling so this week Heather and I created this wall hanging decoration. We really started with this songbird and cage die cut from Quickutz that we cut out onto foil. We have used this foil from Spellbinders before but let me tell you it is a lot of fun and no more difficult to use than regular paper. Combined with the paper and floral stamps this decoration will fill any empty wall space with elegance.

It is time for another Decorate It! Wish Big is adorable and incredibly useful. I always forget to purchase or make a birthday card on time, so this has been so nice to have lying around. In fact, I went to the store on a specific errand to get Grandma a birthday card for her grand-daughter and guess what I forgot? Yes, the card. My one reason to go to the store. When I got home, grandma looked terribly disappointed, but we pulled out this beauty and we were saved in no time.
I can’t say enough good things about the

Heather and I ordered this paper stack from DCWV because we have notices that we have not really done many boy things with the blog so here is a boys dinosaur page layout that we did for our sons scrapbook. A few years back we were able to go to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point and we got some really cut pictures that were perfect for this page but don’t think that you have to have dino pictures because boys and dinosaurs just go together, just ask my son Turner because he was in heaven at the Dinosaur Museum.

It’s time to feed that inner princess that you or a girly family member possesses! The Want2Scrap Chipboard Carriage Album is the perfect way to make your own Carriage Activity Book that a little princess is sure to love! Get some snazzy glitter, some beautiful paper and you’re well on your way!
A lot of the chipboard albums I’ve made become mini scrapbooks, which is wonderful! I thought I was going to make this for my daughters third birthday and fill it with pictures from her party, but we ended up moving to a place where we had no friends to

Hope you all had a great 4th of July yesterday and now is the time to get all of those pictures developed and scrapbooked with Authentiques Pride Collection. This paper stack is pretty amazing because it comes with so much, not only does it have really cute paper designs but it comes with sheets of stickers that make designing not only easy but really fun. I decided to scrapbook some pictures from a few years ago because when I was doing this page we hadn’t had the 4th yet. It was fun to look back to this year because Heather

Going back in time a little for this page layout to celebrate Turners first birthday using clock cogs from Spellbinders. When Heather got out these pictures I thought she was pulling out pictures of our younger son Brexton because they look so much alike when they were at this age.
When we got this die cut and the embossing folder of cogs, right away we wanted to do a “Time to Celebrate” page. This is one of those pages that comes together so easily just cut out a bunch of cogs of different sizes and colors and emboss a few papers

Who needs adorable cards in under 5 minutes? I DO! These Decorate it Owl card kits are super adorable and I made 4 cards in about 10 minutes. Let’s talk about them….
They come with everything you need to decorate a card. Cards, envelopes, stamps, bling.
You can make them really for any occasion.
You can use your other products for a different message
Most importantly, they are E.A.S.Y!
I kid you not, I have already used two of them. In fact, I almost had to take pictures of them individually because I kept needing to give a card at the last minute. These are

Die Cuts With A View has come out with some extremely fun new paper lines! I know, it is super hard to choose which one you want, but I had my eye on the Blue Citrus pack and, let me tell ya, it’s gorgeous! I have so many fun projects that I want to use this paper for, but a treat box quickly ran to the top of my list. I am a piano teacher and had a huge wicker basket loaded with treats for my students. After a couple of years, I have gotten really sick of how huge

Valentine’s Day is THIS WEEK and I still have not decorated for it yet! To be honest, I don’t have a lot of Love Day decorations, so I thought I would start the week making my “Lovely” Valentine’s Day decoration. Don’t worry that Valentine’s Day is this week and you’re down to the wire. If you’re like me and my husband, we celebrate V-day later than the actual day so we can avoid those awful waits at restaurants and we also get the wonderful 50 percent off shopping that comes the day after. So, in my book, my decoration making

The Authentique Lovely Collection Kit is so much fun to play with and you most certainly CAN use it for more than just Valentine’s Day. Of course, it is going to be adorable for the big love holiday coming up, but I had a lot of fun with it to make some really quick and easy thank you cards!
My daughter spent about a week in the hospital in January and we had our lovely and wonderful neighbors help us out in so many ways. I wanted to do something nice to say thank you, so I made them cookies and

Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret is the perfect collection for the season! I feel like this paper goes really well for anything winter or even Valentine’s Day. It’s wistful and has such a romantic feel for me. I really wanted to do a Valentine’s Day layout to feature the paper, but alas, I don’t take pictures on Valentine’s Day (which will have to change!). Instead, I got really excited to go with the “love” theme and make a layout about my little boy because heaven knows I love him.
First, I have to say that Heartfelt Creations knows how to make your job

Yesterday I gave some tips on getting started in, what I believe, is one of the most fabulous hobbies to be in existence, so I wanted to follow up with an easy Christmas scrapbook layout to show that keeping it simple is fun, creative and attractive!
In case you are wondering, the photo is in fact from last year because, like most people, I am NOT caught up on my scrapbooks, and will likely NEVER be, because I am shutter happy with my camera! I look at it this way- scrapbooks are a work in progress. Enjoy the process! Not every

Don’t we all agree that First Edition has the most beautiful paper? Well, if you don’t have a strong opinion on the matter, make your way over to the First Edition page and scroll through! You’ll certainly fall in love at least 4 times, I guarantee it. The First Edition Christmas Village paper is absolutely gorgeous and a must-have to scrapbook those holiday pictures your about to take in just 7 days!
With the holiday season winding down, I’m a little strapped for time on my neighbor gifts, so I’m so glad I have this beautiful paper to help me out!

Here is a really cute Christmas layout using Bo Bunny Snow Day paper pack and embellished with Want2Scrap’s Retro Christmas Ornaments. When I saw these embellishments I really wanted to go for a throwback “retro” look so I just rounded all of the corners to the paper and photos and I think that the page really looks unified. This is a fun layout that you could use with just about any Christmas paper, I like the blues and browns but if you like more traditional colors of Christmas just start with a deep red or green and throw some other

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the USA and no matter how you celebrate this Want2Scrap Leaf Album is perfect for storing those captured moments with family, friends or even personal thoughts for future generations. See HERE for all of our chipboard albums!
What are you thankful for? Of course, my first thoughts are of my family, but when I really think about it, there are so many simple things I am grateful for, that my list could go on forever!
I created this album using Want2 Scrap’s Chipboard Album Leaf by Joe Rotella as a fun way to store our Thanksgiving photos and

I feel like it’s been forever since I made a card! I really missed it! The Spellbinders’ Die D-Lites and First Edition Blank Canvas paper make card making so much fun and so easy to do! The paper is so gorgeous that I didn’t feel like I had to do much to make this card beautiful.
First, I took the Spellbinders Die D-Lites Frame One and cut it out of my main paper. Instead of cutting out the frame and gluing it on, I wanted to make a whole so I could put a different color background behind the paper.

As promised, here are the pages for our Happy Halloween Book that we made and most of them use the same Heartfelt Creations Paper Collection. I think that I have a new favorite Halloween decoration because it is a lot of fun going back and remembering how cute our kids were in their costumes. A lot of these pages use the Heartfelt Creations Classic Editions Paper Collection, Classic Editions die cut, and stamp sets that coordinate with the die cut set. This combination of paper, die cuts, and stamps make putting Halloween pages together really fun and simple. There are
