Puzzle Fun

This post is not only about how I made this scrapbook page, but the content of my scrapbook page. Just before Christmas I was trying to come up with something cute and fun I could put in “boring” gifts of gift cards and cash. At the same time, I saw Stampin’ Up’s Love You to Pieces stamp set and matching die cut Puzzle Pieces. I had an “aha” moment and decided to take a couple of key pictures from over the year for each family member, cut the pieces up and mix them up in each of their gifts leaving them to have to put together Christmas morning! I figured they would be sweet and humor me, but I had no idea how fun it would be! They loved it and I think it’s a new family tradition. I was such a special memory, I wanted to document it, so I again used Love You to Pieces to complete this scrapbook page. Materials: ·        Love You to Pieces (147392) and Puzzle Pieces Thinlits Dies (146830) p. 113 2018 2019 Annual Catalog ·        Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Pap

Candy Cane Fun

Hi there! I was able to capture some moments and scrapbook today! Today I completed the 2018 pages of my son’s Christmas Album. The papers and coordinating sets from Stampin’ Up this holiday catalog were fantastic!

Albums I Maintain

One of the first things I learned early on in scrapbooking was to maintain photo albums and not worry about scrapbooking every single moment or worry about catching up on past moments.  I maintain my pictures in seasonal albums on my computer and at the end of each season, I print out those pictures that I feel represent that time period best and I print only those pictures to put in our family photo albums. I maintain a few very special-to-me scrapbooks though. I started a Father and Son scrapbook for my husband Vernon and son Jacob years ago and each Father’s Day they oblige as I take a picture of them and document their fun together over the year. This one is probably my favorite of all of them.  Christmas and Christmastime in general have always been special times in our family. I maintain a Christmas album for Jacob – an album that has become very dear to me.  After realizing my life is too busy with work and wanting to enjoy other free time moment

My Studio

This is my craft room or "studio". I used to call it my office, but over time all my work related materials have been moved out and this room is just my happy place! I love crafting here and have captured many wonderful moments in this peaceful place.
