Hi and welcome! Let’s talk scrapping for a bit …
Here are a few other places you can find me to continue the conversation:
I wanted to get this post up but I have a non-napping two year old, so this will be fast …
I finally caught up to most of the scrapping world and got a digital die cut machine! OMG! I am the proud owner of a Silhouette Cameo and I love it. I ordered from Scrapbooks by Design, great service, fast and free shipping. I’ve never owned a digital die cutting machine before (I often joke that I am the only scrapper I know without a Cricut) but I’ve been drooling over Silhouette layouts for a long time. I have a ridiculous amount of fonts on my computer and can’t wait to try cutting them all.
This amazing background is one of the first shapes I downloaded and the first thing I cut. I just love it. I am quite sure it will be used again. This is cut from older My Mind’s Eye paper. I did sacrifice one sheet before this, but my settings weren’t right. User error!
I kept the background on my desk for a day or two, while I decided which photos to use. After my son spent a day playing on his skateboard, I knew where this was going! I let the pattern stand alone on most of the page and clustered the embellishments on the right side. I splattered orange ink onto the dark background, knowing that it would barely show. I added frames from My Little Yellow Bicycle and some bits and pieces from my stash.
I think my skater will be happy with it.
Thanks for checking it out!

Do you ever buy paper you just don’t want to cover up? I LOVE paper. I am slightly obsessed with it, as are most scrapbookers I know. Before I headed out to a weekend scrapbook retreat a few weeks ago, I stopped at my LSS for some last minute things, knowing I “needed” a few […][Continue reading...]
Hey all, I’m still a little under the weather so this will be short and sweet. I originally declined the Bo Bunny Mama-razzi2 collection when an option to pre-order it came up after CHA winter; I am so glad I reconsidered! The retreat a few weeks ago was my first chance to play with it, […][Continue reading...]
Okay, I am finally back to share a little of the fun from my scrapbook retreat a few weekends ago. We tackled a few challenges this time, one of which was to use the same template. Our template came from this layout from Rhea at ReAsonand this sketch from the Scrapbook Steals blog. The basic […][Continue reading...]
