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!

Ready to Roll

This page commemorates my 16 year old getting his driver's license and first car last fall.  I love the look of pages with just one or 2 photos but I rarely get to make them because I always have way more pictures.  I had more for this page but decided to just pick one.  I triple matted the photo, tearing the blue layer to add texture.  I created the pennant banner with a punch and some black cord.  The title letters are from DCWV. The background paper and the "16" are from the Recollections Primary 123 stack.

Volleyball 2017

Thanks to one C-squad game being held in the big gym (aka, in better lighting), I got a few decent shots of Bekah's volleyball season. I put them together on a fun themed background page from an Echo Park Volleyball mini kit.

I went to put my scrapbooking supplies away after a day of scrapping with Steph, and ran across this team and individual photo that I'd tucked away, intending to use it on this page. Doh!

Never fear...I simply mounted it on another of the background pages from the kit and, voila, I a two-page spread!

Applefest 2017

My hubby and I got to go to Applefest alone last year- a first for us.  2 kids had work/plans and the youngest told us: "I think I will let you go yourselves and have a romantic time". HaHa!  I don't know about romance but we sure did have a fun day!  In our last scrapping session I went a little crazy with my circle punch!  I started with background paper from the WJB Collection Stack by The Paper Studio that I got at Hobby Lobby.  I used grey paper to mat the photos, using a big circle punch on the ones that would work for that.  I punched the circles for the title with a smaller circle punch and then used punch out letters by DCWV to spell out the title.  I also used a tiny leaf punch and added some punches to the grey paper to let my background paper come through and add detail.

Bekah First Day of 7th Grade

Bekah jumps up to high school in 2017 - can't believe it!  I had this fun calendar page background paper from the Simple Stories Life Documented kit.  I matted my one photo on some colorful striped paper from the same kit.  I added the events of the first month of school to the calendar on the actual days they happened - volleyball games, piano and violin lessons, confirmation class, etc. That was a fun way to document what she's involved in this year.  I added some additional journaling at the bottom and finished the page off with some arrow stamps and bright washi tape strips.

Fall Fest 2017

I love the pumpkin background paper by The Paper Studio that I found at Hobby Lobby!  It is called "Doodle Pumpkins". I also used some scraps of burlap print paper and tore the edges for some contrast.  I used some bigger sized black alpha stickers from Hobby Lobby for my title.

Homecoming 2017

My middle child's first Homecoming!  This was a pretty simple layout so I wanted to use the giant letters for my title for some impact.  The letters are from Hobby Lobby.  I also added some detail with my star punch, layering some of them to add dimension.

Fall Lake 2017

I used a subtle red, white and blue theme for this spread since we were camping over the 4th of July.  The plaid paper is from the WJB Collection stack by The Paper Studio.  The star paper is also by TPS and from the Proud to Serve stack. My title letters are DCWV punch out alphas.
