Waste Not, Want Not

It’s been a gorgeous day here – sunny and 75 degrees – and yet – I’ve been scrapbooking!  I got this really fun pic of Nathan whilst taking senior photos recently. Love the perspective. I paired it with a fun maze cut file from Cut Mania (coming soon !) and a printable phrase also Cut Mania



I hate to waste the scraps and I thought some of them looked a little like waves so I ombre watercolored them and used them on a beach page  I used the May 1st sketch from Stuck? Sketches




Celebrating A Mum’s Love

Probably one of the biggest characteristics of moms is that of loving unconditionally  They put everyone before themselves, they are so proud of their kids and grandkids and nieces and nephews, wanting the best for them They hurt when their kids hurt , encourage and pray for their kids. And even when their kids mess up and feel unlovable, moms find an extra reserve and keep on loving.  I know my mum is a great example of a mum that keeps on giving no matter what.  I love you mum

This page uses two of the latest Cut Mania files – the heart quote and the graphic flowers.





NSD Challenge at Scrap Our Stash/The Scrap Room

Here’s a page I created for the Scrap Our Stash/ The Scrap Room challenge..  My mum is so adventurous – I think if she’d had the chance she’d have made a great pioneer.  She’s been all over Alaska and many other countries and done so many cool things.

I used sketch#5 and a Cut Mania cut file

I used   S ~Stickers, T ~ Tags, Tape, or Transparency, A ~ American Crafts and Arrow,  S ~  Striped Print on tag,  H ~ Hashtag (#), Hearts 


All Change !!

Nathan’s last day of school was Friday and he’ll be graduating next Thursday.  Our friends are moving house, Lauren and I are heading to Ireland to visit our family for 4 weeks, Dan is working on the boat to ensure it’s sea-worthy for fishing and cleaning the weeds from the vegetable patch to plant new seeds. Summer is here – we’ve dusted off the bicycles and tennis balls. SO – not much time for scrapping.  I did create two memorial pages for Bean who we still miss.  This is the first and features a Cut Mania title – I did go back and change the font on the cut file but it’s very similar




Got Grads?

This is an exciting time of the year for us with so much going on.  Nathan is graduating high school, then heading on a wilderness adventure and then college.  My friend’s daughter is graduating for Montana State – the first step in their journeys of their adult life.

I created some cards using the May Cut Mania cut files – I love how they turned out with the metallic paper.




Spring Fever

we’ve had higher than average temps for this time of year – low 50’s and our snow is gone one month earlier than usual – yeah !  However, I always feel I need to wash the windows, and my car, rake the yard and do other cleaning type activities outdoors when the sun is shining so again, not much scrapping done.

Here’s a page I created sing the April FREEBIE cut file from Cut Mania, inspired by the Paper Issues Mood Board. Link to FREEBIE in the April Newsletter
