My fave

Hey everyone, Paper Issues has their first Issue of 2017 posted today.  It's called Stash Busters.  Here are some suggested ideas:


  • It's a new year, so make a dent in your stash! What are you hoarding? Is it an old collection? Is there a paper you think is too pretty to cut into? Do you have embellishments you haven't even opened? Get to work creating a project that includes something you haven't used yet or finishes off a collection by using up the scraps.
  • Show us anything about your New Year's celebrations.
  • Scrap a photo of yourself.
I decided to use some Bella Blvd Addison that I was hoarding. I was also hoarding these fun photos of my daughter at Halloween!

My top 16 of 2016!

Here we are again.  Another year has already gone by.  I always look forward to posting my favorite LO's of the year.  It's hard to choose because some of my favorite may not be because of the way they look but for the memory of the photos.  Time is so precious, I'm so happy that I decided to start scrapbooking 10 years ago.  These memories are all so important, even just the simple everyday things.  I hope my kids and future grandkids will enjoy looking at my albums one day.

So here they are, my favorite LO's of 2016!



Thanks for stopping by!

Here are a couple LO's I did with Simple Stories Hello Fall.

I had a great time taking fall photos of my daughter this year.  She is always such a good sport!



This photo is from a few years back but still one of my favorites!



Here is a LO I did using a variety of the new Bella Blvd collections.  I just love the colors in these!



Make sure to check out the Paper Issues store often because things tend to sell out fast!

Oh so cold!

Hey everyone!  It's new issue day at Paper Issues!  It's called Going Cold Turkey in Snow-vember! 

Here are some suggested ideas: Thanksgiving, family time, winter, use snowflakes or snow photos, create a white on white layout, use the new Snow and Cocoa collection (or any fall/winter collection available in the store), men's facial hair (celebrating Movember)

I decided to go with a snow team using the Snow and Cocoa collection. I also used a free cut file from the store to create my background.



You can see what the team created on the blog!

Go team!

Hey everyone, here's a LO I created for the Let's Go For The Gold issue at Paper Issues.

I was really excited to be part of this issue because I hadn't scrapped this photo yet.  My son's hockey team had such an amazing season last winter.  They were undefeated in our district, won 3 tournaments, district champions, competed in the zones to win a spot to provincials, and finally won silver medals at provincials!!!  Such a big accomplishment for such a small hockey team!

Best times ever

It's sketchy Saturday at Paper Issues!  This is one of my favorites sketches ever!  As soon as I saw that big star I was sold!



This sketch was screaming boy LO at me so I used a photo of my son having fun in the pool.  I love to watch my kids playing!
