Guest Designer at Style is Leverage


I'm so excited to be joining the Style is Leverage event as a guest designer TODAY! I'm joining Tracey Fox, Lynnette Penacho, Jana Oliveira and Hannah Lemieux for this exciting week long event. So excited, a little bit nervous and very honored to have been invited to work on this project incorporating something that I love so very much...scrapbooking!

The @getitscrapbooked week-long #styleisleverage event kicks off, and I’m the guest on the third day live webinar of the week at 7pm ET! 

To join this class, visit to purchase the standalone class or a #getitscrapped membership for access to this and tons of other great content. 

Hope to see you there!


Valentine Bookmarks!

Sharing some photos of my simple make-n-take that's set up in the teen room at the library starting this week...can you believe that this is the first time that I've ever attempted making yarn pom poms?!?! These ones are pretty loosely made since we're being conservative in regards to our yarn supply but they still turned out really cute!

There is a jar of paperclips nearby so the kids can easily attach the pom poms on to the printed bookmarks when they are done.

Perfect little library craft!


Books, Art Stuff, Legos, Music | Scrapbook Layout


Sharing another layout I created using this month's kit from Cocoa Daisy...I used both the 12x12 Memory Keeping kit as well as the Pocket kit. I thought it would be fun to document a bit of what Zoey is interested in. We recently did a little rearranging of her bedroom with some minor decor  change and now these items pretty much make up her space!

I kind of like my cluster of text for my title work on this one...I don't think I've ever done my title like this before on a layout. Fun to change things up a bit every now and then.


Holiday Baking | Scrapbook Layout


Sharing my first layout created using Cocoa Daisy's January Memory Keeping and Pocket kits! I'm especially loving the pops of yellow that show up in the month's kit. January, especially where we live, is known for gray and cloudy days...that are looooong. Working with these happy and bright colors definitely helps with these dreary days!

I had fun using photos from this past month's baking day that Zoey and I shared. It was easily one of my favorite holiday memories this year. So glad I took the time to put it on a page for the album.

This month has me feeling a bit frenzied for some reason. Things are getting busier at work, and we're dealing with some extra stuff around here these days which makes for some crazy days. Feeling thankful I had a bit of time this afternoon to create with my kit!! It's been sitting on my desk for days!
