Scrapbook Layout

I couldn't resist making this layout when I saw this paper at Prairie Chicks. The inspiration for this layout came from a YouTube video I watched a couple of days ago from the I am Roses YouTube channel. You can find it here

Paper is from FabScraps

My First Ever Background!

After a lot of trial and error I finally designed my own blog background! I've wanted to do this for so long already and make it more personal. The pictures on the sides are of a chickadee painting I did a while back. My background is not perfect but I will experiment some more with measurement and such.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Everything I've created in the last month that I haven't posted yet.

Sadly I'm kinda ashamed that I haven't taken the time to post all the things I've made in the last month. I have actually done a few things, and will be doing hopefully a lot more this month as I have put a scrapbook supply restriction on myself for the month of October. My rules are that I may not purchase anything in the scrapbook area (even if it wasn't intended for scrapbooking) except adhesive if I run out (not too likely as I seem to stock up on things like that) and card stock only to finish a project that I have already started. If I have not used a substantial amount of my inventory by the end of October, I will have to go another month without buying anything. The idea is that my stuff stays within the bounds of clean organization (no overflowing into another area or my counter space) And this also motivates me to use what I have and be more productive.

This is the latest project for a swap I participated in at Its a small noodle box and micro mini album. Lots of fun. The mini album measures 1 1/2"x 2 1/4"

This is a not so mini album that fits 5x7 and 4x6 photos. I was playing with a dream effect in Photoshop with the rest of my pictures.

Some of the cards I made in September

Ok this one is a little older. I made this for the guest design team I was on back in July, I just had never posted it officially on my blog. 

Another two cards I made back in September

I decided to take better pictures of the Card and Envelope minis from the previous post.

and this album I made for a swap that never materialized, so I still have it. (sorry about the overly dreamy look, got a little carried away)
