Last weekend I stopped at a scrapbook store and I picked up a fun class kit that they had for a Christmas Scrapbook/journal. It was the last one they had, so I took it! I brought it home and that afternoon I started putting it together…and by the end of the evening I had it almost completely put together! I was so excited that it went together so quickly and it had everything that I needed plus quite a bit more…all included in the kit! Continue reading
My husband and I just celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary!? How can that be…when I still consider myself to be a forty-something? The numbers just don’t crunch!
But I am the luckiest girl alive because I am truly married to my BEST Friend!
I decided to make a little scrapbook because of a fun little idea that I saw on Pinterest, it uses all kinds of numbers and I knew that my husband would love it! Continue reading
I don’t really do that much scrapbooking any more, but I wanted to learn these new techniques and so I decided that it would be fun to create these pages in 8.5 x 11 format and then I could frame them in an 8 x 10 frame if I wanted to!
A couple of week ago when I was cleaning and organizing in my scrapbook room, I came across this book that I had put together in 2011. I only completed about 6 months in this book, but it was so fun to look back and see some of the projects that I did and some of the trips that we took and some of the holidays that we celebrated etc.
I don’t know if many of you know that I used to own a scrapbook store called “Forget Me Not Scrapbooking Co.” I closed my shop several years ago and I have not really done much scrapbooking since then. But then, my children are all married and out of the house, so I don’t have as many events to scrapbook any more! I love to do my “Smash journal” and I love all scrapbooking products and use them for all kinds of paper crafting projects but just have not done much in the way of scrapbooks.
A couple of weeks ago our local Archiver’s was hosting a Heidi Swapp File folder class and so I decided to take it just for fun! Boy was that a mistake, (but a good mistake!) I am hooked on making these little mini books and I love the look of these sweet things!
I made these for gifts and I can hardly wait for an excuse to make more of these! I have several ideas in mind, including some for Father’s Day, baby books, and they make great birthday gifts or would be perfect for a wedding gift!
I went with two of my friends up to our cabin, for a couple of days and it was so fun to just relax and enjoy fun friendships, go shopping, crafting, and of course eating! We got there in the evening and we each had brought a project to work on, but we were having too much fun just talking and laughing to do them!
