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!

Never Enough Bayfield!

This pages is very similar in structure to the one I did for Bekah here.
You've got ripped paper, mixed-size photos, eyelets, cording and a journaling block. Easy, squeezy.
The main differences on Scott's page are that I printed my title on plain brown paper with the computer and then ripped around the words. The background paper is from a hunting paper stack that I bought at Cabela's, of all places.

Jade's Halloween 99-07





This spread covers many years of my daughter's Halloweens. On each picture I placed a torn piece of paper which I wrote the date and her costume on. I attached these to the photos with brads. I ran Halloween ribbon across the bottom of one page and added some stickers and pumpkin brads to finish the page off.

Caden's Halloween 2009

Since Caden was a famous character this Halloween I decided to do a "filmstrip" page. I punched square holes along the edges of black paper and placed white paper behind. I placed the "filmstrip paper" on a spider web background paper. For the title I used my Friskars template and just traced the letters on the page.

Scott's First Halloween

Scott was a cat for his first Halloween and I found creepy little kitty cat stickers in a fall sticker stack by D.C.W.V. that went perfectly with this page. For the background, I used a sheet of plain orange cardstock. I matted my cropped pictures on black and white textured paper. I ran out of it so instead of matting the last photo, I simply made a frame for it out of my scraps...problem solved! My title is both hand-writing and Halloween themed alpha stickers on a piece of lighter orange cardstock. The "Scaredy Cat" sticker is also from the same fall sticker stack.

Fall Fest 09



I used fall and pumpkin background papers for this layout. The chipboard letters that I used in the title I ordered off of peachycheap.com. Check it out if you haven't yet ****warning it can be addicting:) I matted all my pics on black paper. The smaller pics I ran down and across the bottom of the left hand page on strips of the pumpkin paper. On the right hand page I placed one bigger photo that I altered on picnik.com. The journaling area is a leaf that I cut out using a Friskars shape cutter and template.

Birdhouse

For these pages about the kids building my Mother's Day present, I started with a 12x12 sheet of printed paper for each. For Scott's I chose a sky print. I ran a strip of black cardstock across the top and made my title with rub on alphas. I matted two 4x6 photos of the work in progress on a large piece of pastel striped paper. Another, wider, black strip of cardstock along the bottom serves as a backdrop for my silhouette cut of one of my photos, a small photo of the finished product and a small bit of journaling.


For Bekah's page, I chose a flower print background and a light blue patterned paper for my main photo mats. The same pastel striped paper as I used for Scott's is also on Bekah's as a small photo mat and a journaling block. I made the title with round alpha stickers, mounting some of them on small squares of my light blue patterned paper.
The birds on both kids' pages are paper piecings done with patterns found at scrapbooksetc.com
I had never done paper piecing before and this little bird was a cute and easy one to start with.

Preschool Graduation

I made a single 12x12 page for Bekah's graduation from preschool. I used a pink piece of cardstock for the background. On it, I placed two pieces of patterned paper in an "L" shape and then rounded just the outer corners of the shape. I punched star shapes from the same two patterns and scattered those around the page. I cropped three of my photos into small squares and placed them along the lower portion of my patterned papers. The larger photo I tucked into the inside corner of my "L" shape. I ran some blue and white ribbon across the page and used more of the same ribbon to tie off my journal tag. I had wanted to make my entire title with the plastic letters spelling "graduation", but I didn't have all that I needed so my sister gave me the idea to have Bekah write "Preschool". I then realized I was still short one "O" but there was a flower shape in the set that worked out just fine as a substitute. I also had Bekah write her name on the bottom of the page and then I added the year with the same black crayon.

Halloween 2009- Jade



For this page I used an orange background paper and a very busy Halloween colored stripe paper. I matted a large photo on an over-sized mat and did my journaling on the extra mat space. I placed three smaller unmatted pics right on the stripe paper. I created the title with a stamp and a variety of mis-matched alpha stickers. The "candy" title on the bottom of the page I created using my Friskars cutter and templates. I cut the letters out of some pics that I had taken of my kids Halloween goodies

T-Ball

I started this girly t-ball page with two sheets of pink 12x12 paper from a stack by D.C.W.V. For the first half of the spread, I grabbed a diamond print sheet of pink from the same paper stack and cut out one section of the diamonds to run down the side of my page. I layered a piece of solid black cardstock under that to place my pictures on. The title is stamped in black in with letter stamps by Stampin' Up.
On the other half of the spread, I ran a strip of light blue paper with baseball words on it (bought from the singleton racks at my local scrapbooking store) down the center of the page. I adhered a black picture mat on top of the blue paper and placed my main photo at an angle across that mat. I matted two smaller pictures on black mats for the bottom of the page. I printed my journaling on white cardstock and the accents are metal Brad Buddies.
