More Christmas

And some more Christmas... These are also using the Simple Stories December Documented line. The wooden snowflakes are Studio Calico. On the layout I just left them natural, for the card I sprayed them with Smooch Spritz.

Christmas Time

Time for some Christmas... I made this card and page using the Simple Stories December Documented collection. Simple Stories are so fun to use! Just cut them up and away you go! Fastest mini albums ever, especially if you use the photo pages.

I have another page and card created with this collection, but I have to take pics still... I'll be back with them soon :)

PS...the cute little snowman brads are from Tina also!

Peace Love & Joy Card


I hope your holidays were as wonderful as ours were!

2013 Stats

Happy 2014!! Hard to believe another year has come and gone! I have been somewhat more productive this past year...especially with mini books...I must have made at least 15 or so. I lump them in with altered items, so I don't have the exact count. Maybe for this year I'll keep them separate!

In 2013 I made...
-120 page layouts
-129 cards
-30 minibooks and other items (altered etc.)

To compare...Here is what scrapping I got done in 2012:
-89 page layouts
-55 cards
-13 minibooks and other items (altered etc.)

Not too shabby!! I am sure I could have done a lot more, but life gets in the way sometimes.

For 2014 I really need to get our Disney albums finished. It was 4 years ago this past October that we went to Orlando, so I really think it's about time. The problem is I printed thousands of photos, so it's hard to get through them all. But I must try harder!

Brielle and I went to LOTS of crops in 2013, which definitely helped me get so much done. At home it's too easy to put scrapbooking on the back burner, but when you have the whole day away it is very productive. I love hanging out with my little crafty buddy too! Lots of good times and laughs!!

Another goal for 2014 is to get my many, many completed layouts into albums. They keep piling up and piling up. I sorted them out over a year ago, put dates and if they are for Sean's or Brielle's albums and yet they are still not put away...

I want to get caught up scrapbooking old photos and of course, using up my stash before buying more!!

All the best to everyone for 2014!! Hope it's a fabulous year!
