Hi guys! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA these past couple of weeks. My husband recently started taking evening classes which means I have to cook for myself… Yes, I eat a lot of frozen pizzas and nachos but I try to cook dinner here and there plus I’ve been trying to clean a little more than I usually do, all because I’m so proud of the hubby and I want him to feel like I can hold down the fort… sometimes. Plus I’ve been taking care my four-legged and web-toed kids, and aside from that I’ve been catching up on all my bad reality TV shows. So again, I’m sorry and I will try my best to not let it happen again!
I made a very quick scrapbook layout with the Instagram picture I took of Lucky when we first got her (I can’t help but “Aww!” when I see this pic). I cut down a white 8.5×11 paper down by half an inch on 3 sides and adhered that to a colorful ombre background from Craft Smith. Because of the colorful background, I chose to use black and white accents.I am loving parcel tags right now so I decided to type on one to add a little journaling. I finished the layout with a little sewing on the edges and by stamping the bottom edge with one of Kellie’s Stamps. I added some washi tape and a cool Jodie York flair button (which I’m also loving right now) from Scrapbook and More.
Thanks for stopping by, see you next time (soon)!

Hi guys! Today I’m sharing a scrapbook layout I made and it’s my first time doing an 8.5 x 11 page. I usually do 12 x 12 pages but I recently discovered these smaller pages and I love how they look. Most of the layouts that draw my attention are simple and clean looking so that’s the look I went for on this page.
I found some pictures I took on a family trip to Chama, New Mexico in 2013. I had taken these pictures of AJ outside of our cabin with the continuous shooting mode on my Sony camera.
I decided to go for a geometric-type layout because those type of designs really catch my eye. I created a simple layout in Adobe Photoshop because I wanted to plan it out first instead of just putting something together like I usually do.
Once I got the layout figured out, I cut out the triangles with my Cricut and added different background paper to each cut-out. I also used my Cricut to cut out the sentiment and I added some gold letter stickers and wood stars from Studio Calico.
I typed out my “journaling” and cut it out in strips. At the end I added a couple of strips to the top of the page with my sewing machine since I had such a big empty space at the top.
I really love how the page came out and I think I am going to stick to these 8.5 x 11 pages from now on! I hope you guys enjoyed!
Hi everyone! The time I’ve been waiting for has finally come! It’s not officially Spring time yet but my trees are finally starting to wake up!
I had no idea my pear tree had already started blooming. As I took these pictures, the birds were chirping, the doors to the house were wide open, and my dogs and I were enjoying the sunshine, little moments like this are what makes my soul happy!
So today I decided to change it up a bit. It’s been about two years since I’ve scrapbooked and lately I’ve just had the urge to make a quick page, probably because when I listen to certain songs I hear little parts of lyrics I want to use on a page, plus anybody who knows me well, knows I will find any chance to make anything related to The Cure. So I finally decided to go for it and dust off my 12×12 paper.
I’ve been wanting to scrapbook this picture of my son for the longest time but just couldn’t think of a layout or title for it. This is my favorite baby picture of him, he’s actually eleven now so… yeah, this took a long time to make! I decided to make the picture black and white and have the title as the pop of color.
I love this little label maker, I think I bought it for like $5 at Michael’s Craft Store a couple of years ago and I’m so glad I did because this thing comes in handy. I’ve used this in scrapbooking and cardmaking, and I also want to use this whenever I decide to make a Project Life page.
I made the “Just Like Heaven” with my Cricut. The wooden stars are from Studio Calico and the clouds were made with WPlus9 dies.I used a blank white paper for my background and sprinkled different colors of ink with my water brush.
So there it is, a quick and simple scrapbook page! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you guys are enjoying the early signs of Spring as well!
