Christmas Pocket Pages

Some of you may be working on December Daily albums … and others of you may just be ignoring Christmas scrapbooking altogether until you make it through the holidays. LOL! Am I right, or what?!

Me? I do as much holiday scrapping as I can while I am in the mood, but most of it won’t get finished until next year. It helps that I have some design team projects that keep me plugging along, otherwise I probably wouldn’t be doing ANY scrapbooking this month. Hehe!

Some of you have expressed interest in seeing more of my Pocket Pages, so today, I thought I would share with you the¬†2015 Christmas Pocket Pages I recently completed. (I worked on them in November with a goal to finish up last year’s photos before taking more photos this year.)

If you are a pocket scrapbooker, I hope they inspire you … and if you are not, maybe you’ll just enjoy seeing random photos of my family all smooshed together. LOL!


I use my Pocket Style albums as a decorative photo album of sorts. I like to provide an overview of all of our pictures, and then I go back and create pages for the events that have more photos, or have more meaning to me and my family to place in our scrapbook page albums.


Next spread …

A little note about the way I’ve been doing my holiday pages the past couple of years. I have discovered that I like the holidays to have a cohesive look … it connects the multiple pages and makes it easier to view. For these pages, I used an American Crafts/Project Life card kit combined with a few things from my stash.


Next page …

The pages vary slightly, but overall they have the same feel.


Next …


And the last, single page, of our album …



Now, I know we are past Halloween, but while my pocket page scrappers are here perusing, I thought I would slip in the Halloween pages I made for 2015, too. I didn’t get them finished in time to share in October, but figured you might still enjoy seeing them. ūüôā

I used the Echo Park Paper Halloween collection for these two spreads.


Second spread…


Whew! Well, atleast I am mostly caught up with the holidays from 2015 now. ūüôā

Thanks for coming by! I hope to see you again soon!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, friends! Are you doing something silly and fun today to celebrate?!

I’m going to share something with you really SCARY … mwaahaahaa!

Actually, it’s not that scary. I’m guessing only *I* think it is scary.

It is a scrapbook page featuring a photo of my husband and I dressed up for a Halloween party last year.

I don’t like this photo.

It’s not a good photo of the two of us … and that is what makes it scary. LOL!

Infact, I almost didn’t share this page online because I don’t like the photo that much. BUT! Atleast it is scrapped and recorded, and I’m guessing you might have a few of those photos, too. LOL! So here it is, for all the world to see … our scary photo.

But hey! … as a bonus …. If you’re looking for an easy costume idea for tonight that you can create using your crafty supplies this is it! Wear a striped shirt, black pants, black gloves and a black hat (something most of us have around our homes) … and then combine them with a paper or felt mask created from your craft supplies. I happened to have some canvas bags and iron-on vinyl in my stash … so that is how I created the money bags. I cut the dollar sign on my Silhouette Cameo out of the iron-on black glitter vinyl, and then simply pressed it onto¬†the bag with our iron. Easy-peasy!

Now onto the page …


At least the products are cute, right?! I used the adorable “Falloween” kits from for this page. I added in the black and kraft cardstock and a bit of mist from my stash, but everything else comes from the kits.


There were two spiderweb doilies in my kit. I cut up one of them so I could put one peeking out at the bottom.


These adorable die cuts were included with the Daily Diary kit. I think the owl looks so cute sitting on top of the tombstone!


Hope you are having a S-P-O-O-K-Y day!

See you next time!

Old & New: Halloween Parade

Last year while walking in the school’s Halloween parade, my daughter was so nervous about “holding up the line” that she barely paused long enough to wave to me and her dad watching her. The result was ONE blurry photo of her Halloween parade. LOL! (Don’t worry, I’ve coached her that it is “okay” to pause long enough to allow¬†me to get a photo this year. Crossing my fingers she takes my advice this time!)



I was at the American Crafts Warehouse sale here in Utah recently and picked up some of this year’s Halloween stickers and die cuts.

I used various scraps of patterned papers from my stash to build the background following the colors of the newer embellishments.


I strung the banner pieces across the top of the layout, and then accented the top right corner of the photo with this ribbon sticker. I matted it with a couple more layers of cardstock to help it stand out and give it more presence against all of the patterned papers underneath it.


I used a pocket card for my journal block and then created a little scene on the bottom of it using the stickers. I popped a few of the stickers up using foam squares for a bit more dimension.


I love the “Halloween” letters that were included in the die cut pack. I combined them together with a die cut word to create my title.


A few buttons tied with white twine finishes off this happy and bright Halloween page.

Hope to see you again soon!

FREE Idea Book & Simple Gifts

Have you seen that there is a new issue out of the FREE idea books by Echo Park Paper? I’m so excited because one of my projects is featured on the cover. Eeek!

CLICK HERE to check it out by downloading ¬†it for free. There are so many cute ideas in this booklet created by my fellow design team members. You will find inspiration for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Fall, and even Christmas! It’s definitely worth a minute of your time!


What they didn’t have room to show you in the magazine is that this¬†Christmas Mailbox, created with the Carta Bella Christmas Delivery paper (one of my VERY FAVORITE holiday lines this year),¬†actually opens up and holds several mini presents inside. Wouldn’t this make a fun gift¬†to give to that someone special this holiday?!


I actually have two more projects featured in the idea book, too. I hope you’ll take a minute to check them out and let me know what you think! ūüėÄ


On the same gift-giving note … I created some simple Halloween gifts for some neighbor gals I visit each month and thought I would share those with you today.

Sometimes a small, sweet gift is all someone needs to brighten their day!

I ran across these adorable fuzzy, Halloween socks in the Target Dollar Spot. I cut out a cute cube box … this one is from the Concave Cubes by Lettering Delights … to put them in, and then added a simple tag.


These were premade tags (oldies by David Tutera that I purchased at JoAnn’s years ago) and came pre-embossed along the bottom. The third one was plain, but I made it match the others by embossing the bottom with the Cuttlebug Halloween Borders set.

I added the ghost and “Boo” die cuts using the¬†Carta Bella Boo Ghost Die Set. I used the luxurious Ultra White and Ebony Black felt designer cardstocks … LOVE the texture of these cardstocks!


That cute Halloween Pumpkins paper is from the Echo Park Paper Halloween collection. The black dots have a thermography on top of them which give it a little shimmer when you turn the paper side-to-side. Love that!


I hope my neighbor friends enjoy their simple, little gifts and know that I am thinking of them this Halloween season!

Thanks for coming by!
