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 Tee-Ball 2010

I packed a lot into the title area on this one page spread! I printed a few pictures out in a smaller size and ran them vertically beside the title which I stamped on. A baseball brad separates T and Ball. I also journaled in this area. The decorative brads (glove, bat and home run) are "Buddy Brads" and are made by "Hot of the Press". The background paper is by "Reminsce".

Winter 2010

The background paper for this page is by "Reminisce". I matted all my photos on shades of blue, leaving room for journaling on some of the mats. The chipboard snowflakes are by "Bazzill Basics" and I colored them by "inking" on a few different shades of blue. The title letters which I matted on a strip of blue are by "Cloud 9 Design"

Cities/Wedding Weekend Sept 2010

We had to travel to the southern part of MN for a wedding Labor Day Weekend 2010, and no offense to the bride and groom, but we did some other fun things besides the wedding:) We spent a day at the State Fair and then hit a Twins game on our way home. I picked the fair and Twins background paper up at Scrapbooks Too in Bloomington, MN. I used our tickets to both the fair and game as embellishments on the page. The rest of the Twins embellishments I cut out of a brochure that we picked up- gotta love those free page accessories:) I printed my favorite pics from the weekend out in a larger size and the rest in a smaller size which I made into photo strips. I created a small area at the bottom of the Twins page with the heading "Oh, yeah there was a wedding too" and added some wedding reception photos:)

Cities Weekend March 2010

I had zero stickers or any other kids of embellishments to go on this page so I went with some stars:) It is always good to get more use out of punches and stencils that you paid too much for! I stamped the title on using silver ink which ended up not showing up so well. To fix that I outlined all the letters in silver pen. I rounded the corners of all my pictures, mats and journaling area. I added some interest to one of the pictures by punching "jellyfish" into it using my alpha punch set. I punched a few stars out and them traced the rest of them right onto the page using a "Friskars" template. I did scrounge up a few unused Chuck E Cheese's tokens and added them to the page as well:)

Fall Fest 2010

2" squares were the key to this layout! I ran two black strips- slightly wider than 2 inches- across the top of both pages and then placed my squares all the way across. I stamped on the title and filled in the extra squares with fall leaf stickers. More black paper and 2" squares make a journaling/sticker area on each page . All the photos I used I matted on black paper. For the bottom of the page I tore the edge of some fall leaf print paper and placed my smaller photos on it.

Caden's Tee Ball 2010

The paper and stickers I used on this page are "Moxie" brand. I matted two photos- one on blue paper with a red stripe down the middle and one on a red mat and then an over-sized blue one that I also used for journaling. The third photo I framed out by cutting up a sticker and running it around the edges of the pic. A few more stickers for embellishment and I was done!

An Awesome Gift

Not only are my mom and sister creative scrapbookers, they are great cooks too! The day we came home from the hospital with our newest little boy, my sister arrived with an entire laundry basket FULL of homemade -then-frozen meals for our family. That's a gift that can hardly be beat!

My mom crafted this super-cute little menu box to go with it. Looks like she used an empty container from some type of office labels/stickers. Here's the top of the container:

And here is the inside cover:
It was filled with cards, one for each meal they had prepared. And we're not just talking main dishes here...they went all out with side dishes and even desserts!

I just thought this was the coolest thing and that they took the time to make the detailed little menu package made it that much sweeter! THANKS MOM AND STEPH!!!
