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 Football 2016



This paper and stickers came from a kit by The Paper Studio that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  More pennants and arrows adorn this page- can't get enough of those lately!

Scott Halloween 2016

The last of the 2016 Halloween pages are in the books! I made good use of a DCWV pre-printed background for this quick page. All I did was mat my two photos on a coordinating pattern, add one sticker from the Carta Bella "Happy Haunting" sheet and journaled directly onto the background. Done!

Caden's Football 2016



The big football that I used on this spread was actually one big football that I cut in half so I could put half on each page.  The football "paper" is by American Crafts.  I had a bunch of far away shots that I was able to use a square punch on to cut out just Caden and added those in a row under the title.  My title letters are from my DCWV alpha punch out stack.  The football background paper came from a page kit by The Paper Studio.

Bekah Halloween 2016

I pulled out the trust ol' DCWV stack to find the background paper for Bekah Halloween 2016 page. Embellishments are from Chic Tags and Carta Bella "Happy Haunting". I journaled about how Bekah created this year's costume using last year's. She is so creative and talented!

Fall Fest 2016



Supplies:
Background paper- WJB Collection from The Paper Studio
Cork letters- Recollections
Happy fall sign- Echo Park Fall is in the Air

The leaf cut outs that I scattered over the spread are some oldies!  Some of the first scrapping supplies I got I would say.  I am surprised that I have held on to them this long as I like to pilfer my supplies regularly so that I can buy new ones:)

Specs

I passed my poor vision on and this page tells the story of Scott having to get his first pair of glasses. 
Papers, journaling block and embellishments are from the Crate Paper Cool Kid Collection.  I am really digging this collection and, though it is boy-themed, I've even used it for a page for Bekah already.  This will be another one of those collections that I save and use every scrap of. :)
I am not happy with the coloring of my top two photos. I have already played around with making adjustments and will re-order prints with my next order. If they turn out better, I will replace these two with better ones. I also want to switch them around and put the happier looking one on the right as it supports the story that he was not happy with the glasses right away, but they grew on him.

Junking



A junking day with my hubby:)
I used a piece of travel themed paper to make accents for this spread.  The paper is Simple Stories Urban Traveler.  I used it to make the pennants, to mat a photo and a simple accent square to go between my journaling pieces.  You can get a lot of mileage out of one cool piece of patterned paper! The journaling pieces are 9 to 5 journal cards from October Afternoon.  I thought they fit in nicely since they are retro themed.  My "junking" title is made from chalkboard alpha stickers from The Paper Studio.
