A Little Scrapbook Gallery Post

Hi!  Happy Saturday!  I spent very little of my day being productive, but now I am in full force.  I can’t remember the last time I’ve actually shared some of my scrapbooking… A few of these are digital, but all are layouts I’ve done this year. Thanks for stopping by!!!

We Have To Stop Meeting Like This

Hey gang! Why do I have to be such a bad blogger? Happy Summer!

So I’ve started a thing. I just got my first hip kit and I made a box opening. Don’t make too much fun of me, it is a bad set up and I am covered in poison ivy, but I am setting up the craft room and will be making a process video soon!

So, here is my June 2017 Hip Kit Box Opening.

The other reason I’m all amped up today (why else do I gush on my blog, right?) is because I am going to try out for the Hip Kit design team! I am super stoked. I’m not sure I’m worthy, but I am willing to try!!!

Thanks for stopping by friends, I’m going to dig through all my finished layouts and make a gallery post, either tonight or tomorrow. Then I will try to tackle a process video with the hipkit! ♡

Happy 2017 with a cutfile

Wow!  I can’t believe I’ve neglected the blog since April.  I suck.  I’m sorry.  =(

A lot went down in ’16.  A lot of it wasn’t good.  But!  It is now 2017 and it is gonna kick can and take names!

So I wish you blessings in the new year, and I’m giving you a cutfile!

This is a cluster I made, along with a single tree and a 2016 so you can make a cute wintery/Christmasy page.  Simply click on the photo to open a new window to the dropbox file.


Designed for use with the Silhouette Portrait, can also be used with the cameo, I just happen to have a portrait. Hope you enjoy!

Aprilish with a cutfile


I say Aprilish because mother nature has been a little finicky with us here in Michigan.  We had three beautiful, 70-something degree days, and some days where it didn’t get above freezing.  I was really hoping for a beautiful spring day today, but the forecast only calls for a high of 57.  Bummer.  Oh well, I keep hearing that we are going to go from cold to hot, so I will stick out the cold stint.  At least the trees are blooming.

I have two little videos on my youtube channel if you’d like to check those out, they’re just haul videos.  I want to work on some process videos, but first I need to get some sort of space worked out.  I was thinking about buying a little tripod for my phone, it is just easier to use my phone instead of my camera, as silly as that sounds.

I have a new cutfile for you today!  (click on the pic to go to my dropbox)

It was inspired by this video from the Crafty Maven Getaway Channel.  I was really excited by the pyramid of hearts in both her layout and the layout she was scraplifting.  So thank you, Evi, if you happen to see this!

I personally have a silhouette portrait at home, but I thought this would be more usable on a cameo mat.  If you aren’t comfortable changing the cutfile yourself for a portrait mat, let me know and I can make one for the portrait and upload it.


Thanks for stopping by!  Adios!




Eastery Musings

Hey gang!  Happy Easter!  HE IS RISEN!

Today is just going to kind of be some of the thoughts banging around in my head.

A few weeks ago I spilled the blue mountain dew (I think it tastes like the blue part or a rocket pop) on my keyboard and the only key that is sticking- the A!!!!!!  Of all the keys on a keyboard, why the a?!  lol

I have a youtube video posted!  It is short and not very good, but I did a Tuesday Morning haul video.  My Tuesday Morning is kind of devoid of craft supplies compared to what I see others score, but I was happy to get some scrappy love.  If you’d like to check it out, click here.  It kind of makes me laugh, I have no likes and one dislike.  Gee, thanks.  lol

Finally, I was thinking about why I scrapbook vs. why others scrapbook.  I feel like there are two main reasons people scrapbook.  You either take lots of pictures that you want to remember in a pretty way, or you are scrapbooking because the muse tells you to, and you just so happen to place pictures on a layout.  I am in that second place, I really don’t take photos for memory keeping.  I am trying to change that and did start my first project life album, but I am only giving myself a goal of once a  month for that album.

Okay, I might have had more to say, but I am sick of erasing all the unwanted aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas.  LOL

Bye friends!


Adventures in Silhouette

As poetic as that title sounds, I really am talking about using my Silhouette electronic die cutter.  (Is it really a die cutter if there aren’t any dies?)

I have been playing in Silhouette Studio and I think I am going to attempt start a series where I will upload a free cut file twice a month.  (You know my track record, I’m distracted easily… But I will try my best to keep this up.

Today’s is the word “amazeballs” that I created with two different fonts and then I edited a few letters to look more aesthetically pleasing to my own eye.  It is going to be a title to one of my pages of a picture of my husband and myself before we were married.



I am also going to work on uploading tutorials and other videos to youtube, I’ve been trolling long enough.  Keep an eye on my channel.  Right now I think all that is viewable is a video the birds and me talking to them.
