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!

Let's Go Sledding Today!

For this sledding page, I choose two matching print papers, one in blue and one in white and cut the blue one into 6-inch squares. Then I created my block-style background by alternating the blue squares on the white paper. I matted all my pictures on dark blue paper, creating a pieced mat for the long, narrow one on the right-hand page. The chipboard snowflakes are by Bazzill Basics and they started out plain grey so I stamped them with three different shades of blue ink. The title letters are metal punch-outs by Colorbok. On one of my photos, I used alpha punches to punch the word "Whee" in the snow.

Bekah's First Lost Tooth

Bekah ends up with lots of pink 'n' purple pages so for this one I wanted to try to do something in a little different color scheme. My scrapbooking better half gave this brown and pink combo the nod, so I went with it.

My 12x12 printed background paper is from, where else, the Christmas Stack by D.C.W.V. (have a posted a page in the last month that didn't use paper from that stack? I don't think so.) I found some colored cardstock in a mat stack by D.C.W.V. that matched Bekah's shirt color in the photos almost perfectly. The tooth fairy stickers are by Karen Foster Design and the stickers I used for the date are Tag Types by EK Success.

Scott's Christmas 2010

Here's another page made entirely from papers from the newest Christmas Stack by D.C.W.V. I chose two printed backgrounds as my starting point and a brown plaid for photo mats. I cut all my mats large and then embellished them with twine tied through eyelets. The star embellishment and journaling block are cutouts from the paper stack as well. Easy as pie!
