The Art of Napping

Can you believe it, a scrapbook page and its a double post today. Wow, I'm on a roll! I couldn't resist doing this layout. I have been feeling inspired by some many beautiful layouts on the web. I don't want to start scrapbooking albums again, but I think I will start doing single page layouts and hang them in frames up my staircase. I can change them out as often or as little as I want. I do have one hanging in my craft room that I change out every now and again. So here it is.

I used Stampin Up! cardstock, October Afternoon alphas, spray ink, and card from one of their miscellany sets, Amy Tangerine stamp, Elle's Studio tag, and Basic Greys Joann exclusive lines "Hey You!" Hope you liked it.

Project Life Week 17

Good morning all! Yes I have realized I skipped week 16. I have yet to put together the "events" pieces that belong in that week. So, rather than hold up what I can post here we are, week 17! For this week I used a set by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper, which I received in my Citrus Twist kit. I think Crate Paper may have moved up to number one on my love list now! I just love all the colors in this line. Much of what went with it was sold out on Two Peas (my favorite place to shop!!!!)

Its funny, when I saw the new Project Life kits being advertised, I was totally committed to the Jade line as my number 1, and then Blush. I got both sets through HSN during their sale, and I think the Blush is my go-to grab for journal cards quite a bit. I used quite a few this week. I did use one from the Clementine line as well. I used washi, tab stickers, alphas, and tid-bits from October Afternoon, alphas from Lily Bee, an arrow from Studio Calico, labels from My Minds Eye (not sure for what line) and a stamp set from my Citrus Twist PL kit. Also, I always rummage the dollar bins at Target and they had pads of paper with list and to dos on them. I cut the one pad up so they were 4 sets of 3x4 cards, "To Buy", "To Do", "To Remember", and "To Call".


I have 2 inserts for this week, one covers an outing with the girls for summer clothes, and the other our first fire of the year. I also included Megans choir program, and a letter we received from the girls pediatrician telling us she is retiring. I include these things in my album whenever they I get things, but I do not photograph them, they are important to our family, but not to the general public!

Thank you again for stopping by, and if you are a newbie, please stop by again. I try to post every Tuesday.

Project Life Week 15

Hello all, I'm here with week 15 today. Its a pretty straight forward week, 1 insert that holds my daughters Bird Migration report. For this week I used Hey Girl! from Basic Grey. Its one of their Joanne exclusives.


 I also purchased the Hello page flags, journal die cuts and die cut shapes. I added some Studio Calico veneer starts, a Martha Stewart doily,  a Studio Calico arrow, some Stampin Up! pennant punches, Thickers, Oh Snap!, Making Memories and Basic Grey alphas, Project Life journal cards and title card.



 Yes, I have just discovered Downton Abbey for myself. Sad but true! I love it. I watched all 3 seasons in 3 days! I have since gotten some books on Downton Abbey as well as others related to it.
I can not wait until Nov for season 4. My journaling about my new obsession is inside the journal card.

That's it, hope you enjoyed it, thanks for taking a look. Week 16 is just about done. I need to print some events pics and it will be complete.
