Video tutorials

If you love online video tutorials -- you'll love Paperclipping. It's produced by Noell Hyman and she shares high quality scrapbooking videos and provides a weekly Live show on Tuesday nights called Paperclipping Live.
You can watch free episodes on the site or sign up for the membership to review all the archives and current member versions. I really enjoy her detailed design instruction & the live show!

sketch entry

It felt good to complete a layout about our "everyday life" and the usual somewhat mundane parts of life that would be interesting to look back on in years to come. AJ likes to mimic Olivia doing her homework after school. He draws on paper and coloring books while she writes and eats an after school snack with her.
This layout was based on the May #2 sketch on the So sketchy blog.
a usual weekday

products used: BasicGrey paper & stickers, Hambly journaling rub ons, K & Co. stickers, EK Success border punch, Maya Road mist.

NSD layouts

A super quick layout to show off my son's love for his firetruck car! I'm so grateful to my neighbor for letting AJ borrow this toy. It's the first thing he goes to everytime he plays outside.

Birthday layout

I entered a challenge to complete layout with over 8+ photos. It was a good incentive to get some of AJ's 2nd birthday photos scrapbooked.

National Scrapbook Day!

What a great day it was! I got so many layouts accomplished and had a ton of fun. I couldn't believe how many scrapbookers were online and the anticipation was contagious even behind the computer.

I did this layout in a record 7 minutes to upload in time for one of the Scrapbook.com challenges. That is really a big deal for me since I tend to be such a slow scrapbooker. A few chipstickers from Basicgrey and a great new Martha Stewart punch and I was finished!
