Paper: #fmsphotoaday


I have a mountain of scrapbook paper. Lately, I’ve been waking up at 4 AM on my day off. What better time to scrapbook? 🙂

Digital Girl: #NaBloPoMo

Do you still print out photos in albums or are most your photos digital?

At the moment, most of my photos are digital. I’m kind of a binge photo printer. When I have time to scrapbook, I print a lot of photos at once. In this instance,  a lot of photos would be about 100-150 pictures.

I’m way behind on scrapbooking. I am considering doing some digital scrapbooking. Has anyone ever done digital scrapbooking?

If I could find a decent place to print off pictures, that would be excellent. I haven’t been to Wal-Mart since my little incident a few months ago – not even to get my oil changed.

Has anyone had a good or bad experience with printing pictures from an online company, like Snapfish or Shutterfly?

DIY: Scrapbook Area

How did my scrapbook desk and the surrounding area get so messy and disorganized? There is just too much stuff going on at this little desk. It has definitely kept me from doing any scrapbooking. This may call for a quick DIY project.
I still have some shelves leftover from the doing the scrapbook closet. The scrapbook closet is great for storing things. However, I need an area to actually do the scrapbook pages.


There is a desk under here somewhere. Come back Monday to see what I’ve done with this space. 🙂

Crafty Time: birthday scrapbook page



This scrapbook page was inspired by this layout that I found on Pinterest. Where else can you find such cool layouts?

I used Washi tape to outline the pictures in order to make it look more like a cake. Washi tape is an inexpensive way to spruce up your scrapbook pages. So far I have had a good experience with using the tape.


Crafty Time: Christmas Page #2


Another holiday scrapbook page. Holiday scrapbook pages seem to never end. So I stock up on holiday paper, stickers and page titles.

I do like the title of this page. It seems fitting for Little Sister #2. As you can see from the picture, she and Santa have a tense relationship. I think it’s because she is on the naughty list so much.

Crafty Time: Christmas Page.


Well, I could not sleep at 1 a.m. So I did some scrapbooking. There’s always a Christmas page to do. Always. In fact, we should be careful that we haven’t repeated the same exact layout and title in the previous year’s Christmas page.

I was inspired by this layout design that I found on Pinterest.

Scrapbook Organizer











I love this scrapbook organizer. I bought it several years ago at Wal-Mart. Actually, I bought two of them. It’s a handy case to take on a trip or to a crop session. You can put a few pages, pictures and some small supplies. There’s almost no need to lug around a big scrapbook tote. 

Unfortunately, I’m not sure who made it. So if you find one and need to bring your scrapbook pages with you, grab it and buy it immediately. 



Crafty Time: School Days Scrapbook Page


In honor of the kids going back to school, I’ve posted the School Days scrapbook page. I blacked out the name of the kids for this post.

I kept it simple for this page. Sometimes I use PicMonkey to make the titles. It looks neater than my handwriting. There’s also a variety of fonts that I can use.
