One last layout for February from Want2Scrap!  The papers are from Echo Park (much love!)




This a photo from our visit to the Champaign, IL library last summer.  I love it!  I used Manila Tags, Chipboard Fancy Frames, and a strip of pearls from the Want2Scrap™ store.  You can check all their amazing stuff out HERE.

New Project Life Series

Consider this your sneak peek: I am working on a Project Life series for The Curtsey Boutique!  I LOVE incorporating new products into my PL albums, especially those that are a little less traditional products.  The Curtsey Boutique Shop has lots to choose from in this department, so over the upcoming months, I’ll be sharing ideas, tips, and more for using this super fun items in a PL-style album.  Here’s my first page for the series:




There are 3 Curtsey Boutique items in this page- can you spot them?  There’s a clue HERE and HERE and HERE

Sister & Brother

I got to scrap with my girls on Friday!  I have missed them.  Once a month isn’t enough, especially when we miss a month.  Anyway, I have been cleaning out my scrap area and I found some older paper I really wanted to use, so I combined it with my collection of Want2Scrap chipboard.  Here’s what I created:



I painted the kraft cardstock white under the green vellum, to highlight the area where I placed my grouping.  Then I layered on the goodies.  I left the chipboard raw, because I just adored how well it matched my cardstock and brought the whole thing together.  These chipboard words are amazing!

Thanks for peeking!

It’s a boy!  Smile  Not in this house, but I have several pregnant friends, so I just need one of them to have a boy so I can send out this little baby boy card I made recently.  I used several products from the Curtsey Boutique.

Photo Gymnastics

Time for some projects from the February Little Black Dress Kit!  This first one features a photo my brother took, in a series of photo gymnastics designed to get just one good shot of my son.  It’s hard to get him to stand still long enough to be anything but a blur!



You can order this AMAZING kit right HERE.  More projects coming soon!

This layout came together quickly.  I am determined to use everyday photos on my pages, too, not jus the perfect ones or the best moments.  These photos are from school time, when the kiddos were in full “pout-and-whine” mode about their homework.  Thankfully, we don’t have those days often, but they certainly do come!



My favorite part of this layout is the chipboard keyhole on top of a star.  It’s a delightfully unexpected pairing that simply works!  I used lots of Want2Scrap™ goodies on this page, both new and older.  Here are the links for your shopping needs:

Nestaboard Stars Five
