I previously mentioned that I had been severely slacking off when it came to taking pictures of my most recent posts.  I finally took the time to photograph them yesterday and am ready to share them.  Buckle your seatbelts, there are a lot of pictures coming.

I used a “new to me” trick on this page.  I can not remember where I borrowed this trick from, (one of the hundreds of youtube videos, I am sure).  I used a brand new pencil eraser and ink to stamp circles where I didn’t have enough enamel dots for.  I love the way it turned out and the mix with actual dots.

Just Checking In


For the past few weeks, I have been scrapping like a mad woman. I have been using a lot of older pictures and trying desperately to use papers I have been hoarding for years. I know that we all have this stash; things we HAD to have and have never really touched or papers that we loved and still have lots left. I also have an extensive stash of 6×6 paper pads I have been holding on to.

I am one of those scrappers that tend to only want to use the newest lines… So older stuff tends to get forgotten. The sad truth is papers still tend to get wrinkled. I am  trying get some of these papers used before I officially deem them too old or too “destroyed” to use.

“Get those papers out of ‘hoard-zone’ and use them or don’t buy any more paper.” This is the continual dialogue in my head.

Getting to the main point of this post. I have a HUGE stack of pages that I need to photograph and post. I am dreading  it because it will take a fair amount of time. My question is rather you like all the detail shots or would a giant page dump be adequate? 

I enjoy keeping the blog and having a running record of what I have done online, but ultimately what I share is for all of you. I  would really like your opinion on this one. Thanks!

My Anchor In A Stormy Sea with Michaels’ Hot Buy – Nautical


The Layout

The Details  

Red, Navy and Blue have become favorite color choices for my boy layouts this summer.  So many companies got it so right this year.  I have loved Crate Paper’s Ahoy There, Bo-Bunny’s Fourth of July offerings and so many others… I couldn’t pass this paper collection that is currently a Hot Buy at Michaels.  I am unable to discern an actual “brand” on the packaging, but I suspect it is from DCWV.  

DSCN2719The quality of this stack is incredible!  It is an actual “thick” cardstock and it also has a nice weave-like texture.  It is also double sided.  I saw  the hearts and anchors and I was sold (they were only $7.00 this week; of course my employee discount made it even more of a steal.  I really like how this layout turned out.  It was super simple and super quick too!

DSCN2720

I added a few wood veneer pieces from my stash…  I am almost out of the anchor’s and Hobby Lobby is no longer carrying them… I did find that ACOT is still selling them, so all hope is not lost.
