Hi there! I'd love to hear from you!

A little break in the posts with letters... 

I got inspired to scrapbook by this amazing site.  I love the words and pictures simplicity she has going.  So, I decided to put a scrapbook together for last years adventures.  I wanted to try to emulate her style and I ended up loving the new look.  I printed pictures smaller than normal and cropped in and got many pages with a very collage-y feeling.  I wish I could take credit for the look of this scrapbook, but my complete inspiration is from this really creative woman.  It's fun to be inspired.  I spent over 1 1/2 hours in Beverly's picking out new clear stamps and pretty papers for my new scrapbook.  (good thing Lukas didn't come, he never would have lasted that long.)  I'd been wanting to try clear stamps for a little bit now and I have to say... I'm hooked.  If you've never used them you should definitely give them a try.  I loved the clean lines of stamping and the versatility these provided.  Much more fun than stickers and so much neater than my handwriting.  

A few of my favorite pages... (pictures not super great)

  1. hey there! i love your scrapbook! what a great way to cram in a lot of photos. i think i like yours better than your inspirations because yours looks a little tidier. and i really like your use of blank color squares too! i love the inpact plain can make on the peice as a whole, and i'm always struggling with my impulse to have pattern on everything, because i really like the overall look of simple.

    i'm very interested in your clear stamps too, i want to hear more...

    love em
