Happy Halloween!

I just wrote yesterday that I'm not that into Halloween. But, when there are cute papers (or candy!) involved, I can make an exception! I made a couple little traveler's notebook inserts featuring some gorgeous paper from  Authentique in a kit I got at the Scrapbook Expo. I just cut the papers down, and added … Continue reading Happy Halloween!


2017 Scrapbook Expo Review | Akron, OH

Hello! Last weekend, I attended the Akron, OH Stamp & Scrapbook Expo (for the third year in a row!!). I just wanted to share my haul with you all... My haul literally took up half of my bed.

The Planner Society | May 2017 Kit

I did it. I finally subscribed to The Planner Society main planner kit. I've been looking at these for at least a year, maybe longer. It never seemed like the right time for me to take on something like that. I've been scrapbooking since 2006, and I've never subscribed to any kit clubs! I've purchased … Continue reading The Planner Society | May 2017 Kit

A year ago today, I decided to create a separate Instagram account for all my crafty adventures. I had no idea how fun it would be to focus on this one topic for an Instagram account! Things really took off once I started sharing my Happy Planner obsession! I was excited to find other planner … Continue reading Instagram Anniversary!

Scrapbooking in a Traveler’s Notebook Update

Hi there! So, I decided to switch up my scrapbooking routine a few months ago. I switched from making classic 12x12 layouts to a Traveler's Notebook format. I still love it!

New Planner Haul!

So many new planner/scrapbooking goodies have been hitting the stores the past couple weeks. I wandered into JoAnn's with my coupons and I was delighted with what I saw! Now, I don't do major shopping like I used to do. I have purged many things that I do not need anymore and simplified my stash … Continue reading New Planner Haul!

Using a Traveler’s Notebook for Scrapbooking

Hello!!Today I want to share my new scrapbooking system. So, I've been scrapbooking for over 10 years now. I have hundreds of layouts stored very nicely in Iris boxes. I am running out of room. 😯 Plus, after so many years, I am a little bored with filling up 12X12 pages. And, it takes a … Continue reading Using a Traveler’s Notebook for Scrapbooking
