Banner Triple Punch

I’ve been highlighting a lot of punches and scrapbooking pages lately and wanted to show you one more this week.  I have used this punch countless times on many different projects.  It’s the perfect finishing touch to a sentiment for a card, treat bag or scrapbooking page.

Let’s Talk about Retirement

Talking about retirement on Monday when most of us are headed into our day jobs might be dangerous but I’m going for it!  I’m not announcing my retirement from my job but rather I’m talking about all the Stampin’ Up! products that will be retired  on May 31, 2015.  While it’s sad to see products…

My Scrap-Booking Journey – Part 2

I left off yesterday talking about my switch to full size scrapbooks. The reason for this change?  My first horse, Cherokee Perfection (nicknamed Jughead)!

My Scrap-Booking Journey

Stylish 90’s fashion, braided perms and braces anyone?  I wanted to share a little of my journey with scrapbooking! As tends to happen when I pull out my scrapbooks, I get sidetracked looking through every page, laughing at the memories (and fashion!) and sometimes crying over the animals who are no longer with me (Sully…
