We are Steph and Angie - sisters who love to scrapbook. We don't know design, we aren't color experts and we usually only get to scrapbook a few times a year. But, we love our families and scrapbooking our memories with them so here we are!

We'll try not to bog you down with long supply lists and explanations (half the time we can't remember what we used or it's such old stuff that you'd never find it anywhere anyway!)

Please feel free to "scrap-lift" any of our ideas that strike your fancy, and if you are a scrapbooker with your own blog, please link back to us!

Gavin's Basketball 2015-16



And Bam!   Here Gavin is another year older playing basketball:)  Ang and I had decided we didn't want to blog our pages any more but we were still scrapping.  Then we decided to start blogging again so I am playing catch up and paying no attention to what order I am throwing these posts up in!  I cut the chevron stripes out of a sheet of 12x12 paper to make the design on this 2 page spread.  I used my paw punch to add the paws in the corners and  I love how it looks!  I also love how the title letters turned out.  I drew some "basketball stripes" on some of my DCWV punch out letters.

Gavin's Basketball 2014-15



There's a lot going on on this two page spread!  Paper tearing, banners, giant basketball and stickers. The giant basketball was a sheet of paper that I cut in half.  Not sure if I used the other half yet or not but you gotta love getting 2 big embellishments from one sheet of paper!

Gavin's Football 2015



Last year Gavin played on the JV team (or Bombers as it is called around here) and he suited up for the Varsity team so I decided to make a 2 page spread and put JV on one side and Varsity on the other.  I made the titles with some alpha stamps and the paw prints (we are the Huskies:) are also from a stamp.  I finished the page off with some stickers- the last I was willing to use on my pages from the set I had.  I waste a lot of stickers but I just can't bring myself to put stickers that say "All Star" (they aren't!) or "Quarterback" (my kids aren't quarterbacks!) on my pages.  Ang and I decided at our last scrap get together that the people who make these stickers really have no clue about the sports!  Maybe we'll design our own someday!

Fall Fest 2015



I love my title letters on this page and I do believe I picked them up in the Target $ aisle.  I have nabbed quite a few scrapping supplies from there and I am always on the lookout for different places to pick up cheap scrapping supplies.  I added the details on the letters with a Sharpie.  While Ang and I were shopping for supplies at Hobby Lobby I saw some cute letter stickers that had this design on them and I thought "why don't we ever think to embellish letter stickers and punch outs with markers.  Duh!  Super easy and it added a lot of detail to these plain craft paper letters.

Oh That Crazy Elf






We have a lot of fun with the Elf at our house!  I do most of them but the kids have been known to jump in and do it a few nights here and there.  I had so many pictures from last year's elf that I ended up making a flip page.  I added tabs on the pictures to make them easy to flip (this also prevents finger prints on the pictures themselves).  Making any type of flip page involves cutting your page sleeve to allow for flipping.  I always put the page in the sleeve and then cut where needed.  It isn't always super straight but it works!

Kallinen Christmas 2015



I bought a great kit at Hobby Lobby and did this page from the kit.  It is probably The Paper Studio brand- I believe that is what they have at Hobby Lobby.  This kit was totally my style and the page came together super easy.  I will be looking for more kits for sure!

Cast = Game Over



After months and months of battling a foot injury from snowboarding Caden ended up in a cast a few days into the 2015 football season.  There were lots of tears because he lives for football.

I can't get enough of using pennants and banners on pages lately.  They are a great way to add a lot of interest to a page using only scraps.  I also like the title on this page.  I think this is the first time I have used anything other than letters for a title and it adds some interest too I think.
