A Scrappy Post

Beware to most of my readers who are not scrapbookers! This post is all about scrapbooking. Ha!

It all started when Leo woke me up VERY early on Thursday morning and I was not able to return to sleep after I had gotten up and emptied his litter box.

After breakfast and coffee and some internet perusing I decided not to waste my time!

So I started to scrapbook.

This may sound impossible to most of you, but now that I have my new phone I have been taking MORE photos. Yes, like 50 in the last two days. And my phone was next to me as a scrapbooked, so I took a few photos of my process. I did some fun misting and used my typewriter.

This misting technique I am copying from April the idea *here*. April's Insider Tips

This is my fancy paper bag misting system! Funny...but now all I can think of is how I can use these misted white circles. Yes I am keeping them. (I am a little obcessive)

This is my mess.

I used my typewriter to make my own "stickers."

I used my phone to try out different options for the title. (These chipboard stickers don't stick AT ALL, so this wasn't hard.) I took photos two different ways to see what I liked better. I didn't like this option:

Here is my completed page! I have noticed since getting some papers from Five & Dime, that my pages have recently been very vintage! I am okay with the new look.

I used some of my favorite products. Sassafras Border stamps and KI Memories stickers. (this is the website for these stickers) Not sure how to link it, sorry!)

Here is my room, even more messy! Don't worry, its all cleaned up now.

Thanks for looking! Non-scrappy people, if you survived this, Congratulations! I will be back tomorrow with some MOUNTAIN BIKING PHOTOS!!! (Yes, I just said that.)


  1. Lol, mountain biking pix of you or Matt? or both?? I like your page - you are getting more daring with that glimmer mist... ;) I love those stamps too!! Can't wait to see all your new 5&Dime papers!

  2. GREAT your papers. I am going to do some pages of my Arizona trip using mine this week! It is so neat how you used your phone! Your newest toy!
