Gray is my new thing. My favorite scrapbook kits are the cool gray ones, my favorite clothes and shoes are gray, and most days lately the sky out my window is also gray. So here is another kit from Digital Scrap Cafe called "Street" It can be found here

Here is the page that I created using the kit. The blue and gray look so great together.

Mother's Day

I love making my own cards for holidays because I feel that it is so personal and fun. Recently I have been working on one for mother's day. I hope the Mother's in my life don't take a peek at this one but I hope that you enjoy it.

I used the Serendipity kit from Digital Scrap Cafe. You can find it here.

My daughter loves her blanket and I wanted to scrap a page about that. I think little everyday memories are just as important as the big trips and events. I used the Pretty in Pink kit from My 4 Princesses Designs. The template came from ideas for scrapbookers but I did change it quite a bit. The dot background is a photo of my daughter's blanket. 

 Here is the kit from My 4 Princesses Designs.

Love Blooms

I have recently finished some big scrapbooking projects, my daughter's 2009 book is done and a summer 2010 book is done. So, I have now moved on to the rest of 2010 -- (getting caught up a little bit!). My daughter had a gray dress that I absolutely loved and I decided to do a page with pictures of her in that beautiful dress.

I used a great kit from Digital Scrap Cafe called Love Blooms. The gray, white, and red were perfect for the pictures. It can be found here if you want to check it out.

Family Tradition

I working on a little book that documents all of our fun summer vacations from 2010 and I created this page as an intro page for the book. As I read through it just now I realized that I want to change the text and journaling a little bit but I am posting the page anyways.  I named the page Family Traditions because our summer travels to Lake Powell and pine lake are a family tradition that I absolutely love. The Rainbow Bridge picture is from 2010 but the rest of the photos are from years past. I love the ones at the bottom that are from so long ago. Oh, what wonderful memories!

I used the Cherished Memories kit from Digital Scrap Cafe. You can find it for $2 here.

Ryan Wakeboarding

I created a new page of my brother wakeboarding and I used the Beachy Keen collaboration kit from Digital Scrap Cafe and it can be found here:

the alpha is from Shabby Princess and the template is from Meagan's Creations. I think that it turned out really well. I like occasionally doing pages with a white background because I think it makes all of the pictures and everything sand out even more.

Just Beachy

Last summer we went to Lake Powell a bunch of times and so I have decided to make a mini book to document all of the fun. Here is the first layout that I have completed for the book.

I used the Just Beachy Kit from My 4 Princesses Designs and it can be found here.

Bright Days

I am working on finishing up a 2009 scrapbook for my family and the only pages that I have left are the Lake Powell pages. These pages have been difficult for me because 1. I have tons of great pictures 2.  it is hard to capture the love I have for this place and 3. I didn't really have a kit that was what I wanted. So I recently  found a kit and began work on these special pages. My first try is above and I think it worked out pretty well. I used the Bright Days kit from Digital Scrap Cafe and it can be found here if you are interested.

Toy Story

I created a page for that fabulous Toy Story ride that is at Disneyland and Disneyworld. It was such a fun ride and I wanted to document it. It also helped that I had this great kit called Toy Chest by Laurie's Scraps at Digital Scrap Cafe. It can be found here if you are interested.I think I will be doing another toy story page soon because my daughter Ellie LOVES Toy Story. She has been sick this week and we have just watched it over and over!

Friday, February 11, 2011


I have been doing a lot of scrapping lately so there will be a lot of posts in the next little while. I got another great kit the other day and scrapped a page about Patch our dog. The kit is Puppy Love by Laurie's scraps and it is available here at Digital Scrap Cafe. If you want to get this one you will have to hurry because Laurie is closing her digital scrap cafe store. The good news is that all of her kits are on sale until February 15th. I used a template and an alpha by Sahlin Studio.
