Where the Boys Are!

Everyone knows that I have 2 beautiful girls so when it comes to girly-girl scrapbook pages I'm on the ball... I have endless supplies and tons of ideas. Boys on the other hand... well.... that's another story. Beginning back when I made the name Ryan for a wonderful client in town I began to see that boy stuff can be fun too!
Taking it a step further I have begun to gather lots of boy supplies and I recently made these 2 pages of 2 of my favorite little guys. It helps that their mother is a professional photographer:

Don't Forget About MOM!

Mother's Day is May 11th (which is also my little one's birthday... guess I have to share!).

My frames, mini-albums, and lunch boxes make great gifts! Order by May 4th to ensure delivery (in town only... anyone who needs an item shipped in time for Mother's Day contact me ASAP!)

Scrap Tip #3.... STAND UP!!!

I am notorious for making crooked layouts... I think my head is on a permanent angle. One solution that works is to stand up to do your work. Giving yourself a "birds' eye view" really helps you see the full layout.... plus it gets the blood flowing!

For example here's one of my current Ebay listings in which I had to really stand up to see the whole picture:

What's In a Name?

A few weeks ago I was BOMBARDED with orders for letters. Totally out of the blue... it's feast and famine around here. I've been working with 5 moms and another one who wanted a frame (photos to come later). Each set is totally unique to the decor and style that each mother wants their child's room to have. I have had so much fun putting these together!

Sad Goodbye to Old Reliable

It is with great sadness that I announce the quiet passing of my old friend.... one that has been with me from the beginning of my scrapbooking adventures. I couldn't have made it without him and he will be missed.... but he will also be replaced ASAP since I have 6 orders for people who are waiting for their letters!!!! He passed quietly sometime this morning.

Scrapbooking Tip #2: KEEP YOUR SCRAPS!

I have boxes and boxes of scraps.... those little leftovers from larger projects. I even have them organized by size which are then subdivided into pattern or solid. It's a form of OCD, this I know. But scraps can be used to make some really cute projects.

The photos shown are perfect examples of how scraps can be used for another purpose. These are 2 mini-albums that were made for Ebay. I feel that if a scrap is interesting or really high quality, then it should be kept for use in future projects.
