Life and Love: Scrapbook It...

Welcome to my new scrapbooking blog! I'm so excited to have a place where I can focus on all things scrapbooking--tips, techniques, tutorials, trends... I love it all! Taking everyday pictures, telling everyday stories, and playing with pretty paper--that's what I do best! I scrapbook everything for my trip to the market, or what I ate for breakfast, to bigger occasions, like the guestbooks I create for Peachie's Photo Parlour. Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think!


Right Now

Glitter, Washi tape, chevrons, and sunny yellow hearts... what could be more cheerful! I love looking to trends in fashion and interior design to take inspiration for my scrapbooking. The mixed patterns currently seen in fashion were so fun to implement on this page. Attention to color and scale really ties it all together!

Simple Elegance

I wanted this page to be very clean, simple, and classic. I love the subtle embellishing and photo enlargement. The lace sticker must be 15 years old, but I knew I was saving it for something perfect!! Simple elegance. Thanks to Steph for letting me continue to add to her guestbook a year later...
