Father's Day

Yes I know, we are in back-to-school. But I thought I would share a project I made for my dad for Father's day this year. My mom gave me a bunch of pictures of my grandma (who passed away when I was in college). I scanned them in and got them printed (I didn't want to use the originals).

I used a Simple Stories Mix & Match Album (now called SN@P albums). And the Simple Stories Generation Collection Set.

I put this album together in a slide show as there are MANY pages. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

Have a Great Thursday!! We are getting closer to the 3 day weekend!

Fall Recipe Book

Recently I put together a Recipe book using the NEW Simple Stories - Harvest Lane paper line and homemade faux paper bags. I found the tutorial on Pinterest and adapted the tutorial to fit my style and the album.

I will show you how to do this another day, but today I'm going to share with Recipe Book i created.

This was a fun album to create. I even made some custom recipe cards in Adobe Illustrator / In Design to add to my album. This would make a great gift or a recipe book on the go. The size is 4x6.

Have a Great Wednesday!

A Peek of ME

I have been working on an album about me and my life. I'm using the Echo Park - Everyday Eclectic paper set; plus a whole bunch of other products I have in my stash that it coordinates. I'm using a Simple Stories - Mix & Match Album (soon to be SNAP albums being released this fall in many colors!!)

The Simple Stories album has a mix of pages. They are all sized at 6x8, but some are split up into smaller sections.

I'm obviously still working on this album. I have been using instagram pictures, which I got printed. There are various places to print your instagram photos, check out this site for ideas. I used Persnickety Prints to print mine.

During this process I also purchased a vintage typewriter. I got it on Ebay for a great price and it just needs a cleaning. I love using it on my layouts and pages. TO me it adds some character.

I'll continue to update with more posts of this album as I complete them! Check back for more layouts and scrapbook projects!

I'm Back...

I haven't posted to this blog for quite some time. I have a website that I've been using, but I want to switch it up a little and well I have little time to do that. So anyway Today I'm going to share a layout I created using the new My Mind's Eye - Honey papers. I created this based off the MemoryWorks August Challenge. MemoryWorks is a scrapbook consulting company, we have challenges and share projects and ideas on our private message board!

Until next time :) Have a great Sunday
