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!

Rochester Trip



I did a page for each of my boys of their Rochester adventure but they are pretty much identical so I will just post one.  Grandma had to go down to Mayo for some appointments over several days last summer and Ang took her so she also took my boys and one of her boys to keep her company and boy did they have a blast!  While Grandma was busy with appointments they saw the sights of the city and checked out some great restaurants.  I had to cram lots of pictures on these pages so there wasn't much room for embellishments but the cute road trip stickers are from The Paper Studio.  The title letters are from my DCWV punch out alpha stack. I did also add the goose which was cut out from a take out bag from The Canadian Honker- one of their favorite restaurants of the trip I think!

Scott @ Frontenac

I pulled from my stash of Fall, and even Halloween supplies for this page.  The plaid paper is Photo Play Paper Co Falling Leaves "Give Thanks". My title letters are from the Carta Bella Happy Haunting cardstock stickers sheet. The round tag embellishments are Chic Tags.

A Wild Weekend


** Another oldie from the Kallinen archives that was stuck in drafts.

Although we LOVE our life in the quite north woods it is nice to escape to the Twin Cities every once in a while and take in some....umm....culture??  If you consider the Mall of America, MN Zoo and a waterpark culture;)

Materials:
title letters- Recollections
zoo stickers- Paper House
"moa" stickers came from the $ Tree- don't forget to check there often for cheap scrapbook supplies!

Alarik Yurting

I did not do a title on this page, instead relying on the cropped photo of the tag from our yurt (Colorado Yurt Company) and the words within my journaling that are spelled with alpha tiles.  The colored tiles are so old - one of the first scrapbook supplies I can remember ordering from Oriental Trading Company when I started scrapbooking almost 12 years ago!  There is quite the rag-tag assortment of letters left so I sprinkled as many as I could throughout my journaling block.

The only other supplies I used on this page are some plaid patterned paper and some more stickers from the Sn@p Life Documented planner stickers pack.

Caden's Football 2013


** Here's a blast from the past that I (ok Ang found) sitting on our drafts tab for some reason and it doesn't look like it ever published.



My boys love, love, love their football!  They have spent all basketball season wishing it was football season again!  This was the only year they both played together on the Pony League team so I was so glad I borrowed a friends nice camera and got some good shots.

Materials:
field paper- The Paper Studio
cardstock football stickers- The Paper Studio
I don't know the brand of the metal letters (I have had them forever!) but I do know I got them at JoAnn Fabrics

Scott Yurting

I used a kraft background again for this page. Seems like I did everything in either kraft or navy during our last scrapping weekend.

The ripped and layered papers here are all from My Mind's Eye's Kraft Fun Day collection - a long-time love of mine!  I scattered a few embellishments from the same collection around the page and added my journaling on a ripped bit of cardstock.

Jade K Super Nanny




 This was a fun page to create to capture some of the memories of Jade nanny-ing for her cousins for several summers. I used more paper from the Recollections Primary 123 stack for the background of this spread (I am getting a lot of use out of that purchase!)  The stickers are from the "That's my Boy" collection from Echo Park.  I thought the circles on the paper were a fun way to mat my title!  I used my DCWV punch out alpha stack.
