How about a scrapbook layout?

Hi! I thought I'd share a little something I've been working on lately. As some of you know, I am a HUGE supporter of Digital Project Life- it's super easy, takes a lot of the "stress" away about keeping up with scrapbooking, and I LOVE the designs. But every now and then I get the scrapbooking itch and then I run to Archiver's and spend a ton of money on open stock 12 X 12 paper and a couple of collections, get them home, let them sit on my desk for a few months and then use finally use them.... haha! I'm trying very hard to get out of this vicious cycle and here's how I started:

Wow- it's been a while, but I think it's a little like riding a bike. This is my little man, Austin James, he's quite the character and a funny face expert. He makes me laugh every single day and I think I captured a little bit of that here.

Last time I was at Archiver's (ehem... 2 months ago...) I picked up some of this sweet Jillibean Soup paper from the open stock- it's from the Soup's Staples collection and it's called Gray Sugar. LOVE it. Could have bought this pattern in every color they have... lol!

I also used some of the fun stuff I found in my Little Boy collection from Echo Park. I bought the whole collection and I definitely think it's one of those collections that I'll turn to again and again- I DO have 2 little boys.... it's PERFECT!

I pulled out some fun Waltzingmouse Stamps for this layout, too! I recently won a stamp set over on the Waltzingmouse FB page and it took me a LONG time to decide on which stamp set I wanted! They have beautiful stamps and I'm so glad I finally got to try them out! Not only are they beautiful, but they are exceptionally good quality and they shipped super fast! Can't beat that! The rocket ship and the sentiments are from the Half Pint Heroes set!

He's a little crazy...

Super cute stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps! Colored with Copics!

I hope you enjoyed seeing something a little different on the blog-o today! Expect more scrapbook layouts in the near future- everytime Eric goes away I get a little crazy about memory recording!

Oh yeah- I put it out there on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ but I thought I'd ask here, too! I'm SUPER interested in these scrapbook kit clubs I keep hearing about (Studio Calico, Scarlet Lime, Paper Posies, The Scrapbook Nook to name a few...) and while I'd love to order from each and compare- I'm not rich... haha! Which kit do you use and what do you love about it? I'd love to know!!

Thanks! See you again very soon!



  1. You should definitely do more scrapbooking, Steph, if this page is any indication of your awesomeness at it! I love Waltzingmouse, too, and may have to add this set to my next order! That grey paper is fabulous, too.

    I don't know much about kits, but I do know my friend Angela participates in a "counterfeit" kit challenge each month that looks pretty fun!

  2. I'm not a scrapbooker, but I have dabbled...and do love it. I love having more space to put more stuff - LOL Did you color that rocket? This is really fun...
