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!

And a Few More Cards

You'll recognize these same papers again.  I punched stars out of the scraps from making my pennant-banner birthday cards and came up with this design:

 Then I used the negatives and threw together these two:

 This design is scrap-lifted from Erin at Taking Time To Create:

And the last thing I did was throw a cute woodsy "thank you" and some brown/white baker's twine together to make a few of these.

Girly and Birthday Cards

I recently found Cindy deRosier's blog and have been greatly inspired by all her projects.  She not only has very clean scrapbooking layouts and fun, easy cards, but she has some really awesome kids projects as well.  Check her out!  http://www.cindyderosier.com/

The first three cards I made were inspired by Cindy's "Best Wishes" card.  I changed the color scheme by using papers from the K&Company designer paper stack.  I had some leftover dragonfly, flower and butterfly stickers, plus some fuzzy sentiments that fit just great with the colors of the paper

Next, I checked my "Scrappy Ideas" board on Pinterest for inspiration.  I found it in Amy Bollman's "Happy Birthday" card and here's how I interpreted her layout:

I like to make multiples when I'm cardmaking because it seems so fussy to work on that smaller scale that I want to make it well worth my trouble!  I otherwise scrap only in the 12x12 sector so cardmaking is always a bit of a challenge for me.  I must say that I feel this most recent set of cards is my best attempt ever and I thank Cindy and Amy for their inspiration!
