Your life is a story …. scrapbook it!

It’s snowing – so why not a Holly Jolly post?


Today’s layout was super simple.  I used CM’s doodling templates and silver pen to outline the black CS.  I have found that I really like my layouts on black CS.  I also used nordic paper to mount my photos on.  Added a couple CM stickers and I was done!  Thank you for looking today and have a great weekend!

Molly’s 1st Christmas


Today’s layout was made using some border stickers that I bought at Joann’s marked way down a few years ago.  I have so much CM stuff, that I really believe I have no business buying scrapbook supplies anyplace else!  But sometimes, I can’t help myself.  Anyway, these pictures are so cute, that the layout really doesn’t matter.  These pictures were taken at my brother’s house on Christmas Day in 2010.  Molly loves her cousins, but especially her cousin Scarlett who is pictured in the bottom left picture.  Thank you for looking today!

Fa La La

Today’s layout shows CM’s Noel designer paper.  I used a black scrap and CM’s old ivory ABC stickers for the title.  I matted the photos in black to help make them pop.  Thank you for looking today!

Mojo Monday 10/8/12

Today’s Mojo Monday post fits the bill because I loooooooooooove CM’s border maker cartridge and for this post I used the brand spankin’ new Twinkle Cartridge in the border maker.  And I used the Evergreen Cartridge on one half of this two-page spread.  I was taking an on-line sketch class and the sketches were all two-page spreads; so I had to scrapbook two different events, and somehow match them up because I didn’t have enough photos for a two-pager.  (Am I rambling on?)  Anyway, I enjoyed this sketch.  Thank you for looking!

Favorites Friday 8/10/12

Hello – I haven’t posted to my blog in over a week… no good excuse here!

So, here is a favorites post from me – this shows a layout made with a Power Palette.  Any of CM’s Power Palettes is a favorite of mine!  I have one whole book full of this same Power Palette.  It was a fun project, and very simple.  Everything I needed was in the Palette.  Thank you for looking!

Easter Joy

This is one of those fast and easy layouts.  A simple straight border down the side; a few photos; a title sticker; a little journaling; and a couple of stickers make this layout come out great.  (imho)

I love Epcot

Every year Epcot has the Flower & Garden Festival and I just love being there during that time.  These pictures are so pretty, I didn’t feel they needed any decorative elements – the only thing I did was cut out the huge butterfly.  I added our tickets and the page was done.

So I had some leftover 8×8 album kit stickers and paper, and decided I was going to use them in my 12×12 book.  The colors worked, and I think it looks fine.  I also used our Atlantis wristbands as part of the borders.

A great item that not many people use

I use 8.5″ x 11″ side loading sleeves in my 12×12 albums whenever I have something that I want in my book, but not taped down.  Any type of program, or something two-sided, is perfect for these sleeves.  In this book, I used a sleeve for each day’s “Freestyle Daily” that we received on our cruise.  It surprises me that I don’t sell more of these, because I think they’re so useful and necessary.  (I have one customer who uses them all the time and couldn’t live without them.)


Just Relaxin’

I wanted these pictures of my nephew Erick with his Uncle John to really stand out on a page.  So I chose a black page and a bright blue designer paper and cardstock that I knew would make the pics jump out.  I freehanded the cut – I used a pencil to draw the shape, then cut with scissors.  I told myself it didn’t matter if it was the same size on both ends – just cut!  Then I used a silver pen to draw a few swirls and the dots along the blue paper.  Then I fired up my cricut for my title – this is the Making the Grade cartridge.  Thanks for looking!
