Simple Magic : Simple Scrapper

Even bad (let's call them questionable, maybe?) photos that evoke sweet memories can make a good scrapbook page in my opinion.  The photos are certainly good enough to help spark the memory, despite being dark -- and who doesn't love a little lens flare?  I love the feeling of fall in this page.  Makes me want to trade in my hot cocoa for a little apple cider.

Again, this is a page done with a Simple Scrapper Sketch and Story Starter.  I think it turned out super cute, and it totally captured a memory that I want to save.  Aren't the most precious moments of motherhood those quiet afternoons of pretend and sweet hugs?  Well, the most precious moments are *really* a glass of wine after the little one is in bed, but this is a close second.  :)

I've got lots more to share this month, so stay tuned for more!

Rock The Chalk : Simple Scrapper

Hello Happy Campers!  Can you believe it is December already?  OMG, me either!  I'm about to enter into a world full of Hanukkah Magic -- and, speaking of Magic, that happens to be this month's Story Starter theme at Simple Scrapper.  I was inspired to create this sweet and funky little layout featuring me and my best girl getting a little Adam Ant with a tub of sidewalk chalk last month.  This was my first month with Simple Scrapper, and I can honestly say that I am loving it.  You know that rut you sometimes feel when you know you want to scrap something but you aren't sure what?  That was totally solved!  I feel more creative than ever.  So A+ to that fabulous group of ladies -- so much inspiration!

I'll be back with another layout later this week.  Right now I think I need to hang up some dreidle decorations.  Whoo-hoo!

Paper Camellia Reveal Day!

I think I need to have my camera lens sent to the shop -- this is looking funky, isn't it?

Oh yeah -- it's the first of the month and it's reveal day over at Paper Camellia.  I've been a busy bee crafting and not blogging, but things will be picking up soon.    I'll have a few more layouts to share later this month.  I'm going to switch out lenses on my camera and see if I can't get something less grainy going on.  

The kit is fabulous -- so much fun to work with!

December Daily Base Pages Pt. 1

Like everyone else in the scrapbooking world, I'm getting my base pages ready for this year's december daily.  I'm going ultra basic this year with black, white, gold and kraft.  A hint of silver, too.  Since I don't celebrate Christmas, red and green isn't really my bag.  I'm really loving this color way, though.  I think I could scrap everything in these colors.

A little bag to put trinkets in

Using Ali Edwards' 2012 December Daily Stamp Set

Lots of layers and pages of different sizes

Those gold scallops are on a 4x4 page

I stamped the back of the pocket with the doily glued on it so it looks good on both sides of the protector.

I'm about half way done with bases so far, which is pretty good progress.  I'm stalking instagram looking at what everyone else is up to.  I love looking at December Dailies!
