Perfect Alpha Spacing Every Time!

Have you ever fought with trying to space alpha stickers perfectly on your scrapbook layout?  Do your palms get all sweaty when you're about to stick alpha stickers on your almost finished page?  Have you ever ruined a page by not having as much room for your title as you thought you had?  Well today's Money-Saving Monday post should help! (So, I totally sounded like a commercial there, didn't I?!?)


I'm not much of a sticker girl anymore but I do love using Thickers from time to time.  Here's a little trick I've been using for the past several years.   Wax Paper!!


I keep a sheet of wax paper in my craft room and every time I need to stick alphas on a projects, I lay the wax paper over it first, then put the stickers on to make sure they'll fit in the allotted place, and to get them spaced correctly. Since they won't permanently stick to the wax paper, I can pick them up and move them til I'm happy with their placement.  Plus, since the wax paper is see-through, I can make sure everything will fit properly, and then simply transfer the stickers from the wax paper to my project!


Super easy and no more measuring!  Woohoo!  Have you ever used this method before?

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Page Kit Week 1 - A Simple Card

Here it is...the last day in our first-ever page kit series.  I'm working on another kit to get started on next week's series, so I really hope you liked this first round of posts!  

Scrapbooking, Cards, Cardstock, Crafter's Companion, Stampendous
I used some cardstock leftover from the kit...I pretty much used the whole kit up this week, but had enough for this!  I used stamp sets from Stampendous (the leaves) and Crafter's Companion (the sentiment.)  I heat-embossed the sentiment in white and then stamped the leaves in three different colors of ink using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I just colored with them directly onto the stamps.  I matted everything in black and added some jute and viola!

I would love to hear feedback on the page kit series this week.  Did you like it?   Find it useful or inspiring?  Is this something you would do with a page kit?  Talk to me!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Page Kit Week 1 - Smash*Book Page

Here it is...Smash*book day!  Happy weekend to you!!  Today, I'm showing project #3 from the page kit we started working on earlier in the week.  I opened up a random page in a new Smash*book and went to work!


There's two photos from my daughter and son-in-law's engagement session that had a super cute story attached to them, and I've had trouble figuring out how I wanted to preserve them and the tale.  I can journal on a scrapbook layout, but the story would take so much room on the page, I didn't want it to detract from the photos, so....


I made a panel on the left page of the book and wrote (and hid) the story underneath.  I added a little loop of jute to the panel to signify to the reader to look under it.


Basically the story goes like this:  Emily and Bryan were in their Seattle Seahawks gear (shortly before the Seahawks won the Superbowl!!!!) and were sitting by the water's edge with the Seattle Ferris Wheel in the background.  The photographer was way across the street so she could take wide angle photos of them.  A group of tourists walked by right between them and their photographer, and one guy stopped and said, OMG this would make the most awesome picture with you guys in your gear and the wheel and water in the background!  You guys should have a photographer out here with you!  At which point my daughter laughed and pointed (the second photo on the page) across the street at the woman taking photos, and said, "we do!!"  Ha ha!  Luckily, the photographer was smart enough to keep shooting and got it all on film!


So, here's my "secret panel" being lifted to reveal the story below.  It's "hinged" with a nice long strip of coordinating Washi tape.  When the reader is done, the panel lays back down flat on the page.


I hope you like my Smash pages!  Tomorrow...a card with the kit leftovers!!

Page Kits Week 1 - Pocket Page

Welcome to more of "Page Kits - Week 1."  I should probably find a more exciting title than that huh?  Ha ha!  Today's project is a 12 x 12 inch pocket page.  I've been trying to learn more about pocket pages and how to make them.  I mean, I know you can literally just throw a few pics and a journaling card or two in the pages, but of course, I have to make it more difficult than that.  As long as some of my scrapbook layouts take to make, I feel that if I spend 5 minutes stuffing pockets and call it good, I just haven't done nearly enough!  So, it seems like each little pocket insert becomes a layout of it's own, and they all need to coordinate.  No need to make it that hard...I just tend to overdo!


Simple Stories Snap, Washi Tape, Pocket Page

I used more of the paper, photos and embellishments from my kit, and then added a Simple Stories Snap 4x6 journaling card, a little Washi tape, some ephemera, jute, and some brads.  Even though I "had" to add lots of extra stuff, this page didn't take long at all!  Yay for pocket pages!

Up next on Saturday, is a Smash*book page made from the same kit and goodies...see you then!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

WOYWW 275 - Page Kits

Happy WOYWW!  It's time again for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  It's our weekly snoop of others crafter's desks all over the world.  Click the link above to check it out and join in!

Scrapbooking, Cards,

This week's photo catches me setting up a photo shoot for next week's page kit.  I started a series this week using a homemade page kit to make four different projects...a scrapbook layout, a pocket page, a Smash*book page and a card.  You can learn more about making your own page kits HERE, and see the first installment of the series HERE. If you like what you see, don't forget to join me the rest of the week for the rest of the projects!

Below is the double page layout from the first page kit.  It showcases pics of my gorgeous daughter and my super- cute new son-in-law!

Scrapbooking, Page Kit, Paper crafting, inks, bling

I've hidden the WOYWW button/badge in plain sight as usual.  Don't forget to try to spot it if that's your thing.  Let me know if you find it!

Page Kit Week 1 - Scrapbook Double Page Layout

As promised, today kicks off a new series about how to use page kits in all sorts of creative ways!  I'm super excited about this endeavor and I hope you are too!  As described in yesterday's post, here's the page kit I made:

Quick Quotes, Teresa Collins, bling, ribbon, Scrapbooking

It includes papers from Quick Quotes and Teresa Collins, as well as solid color cardstock, a sheet of QQ punch-outs, Some bling, ribbon, epoxy stickers, and brads.  I added some photos I wanted to scrap of my beautiful daughter and son-in-law that were taken during an engagement portrait session.

Scrapbooking, Quick Quotes, Teresa Collins, Ink, Bling

My layout includes several punch outs from a Quick Quotes page I had,  I trimmed them so that all the edges were clean (no little paper "tabs" from punching them out) and then inked the edges.  I put one little butterfly on top of another and bent the wings up to give them dimension, and then added a little bling on the body of the butterfly,

Scrapbooking, Quick Quotes, embellishments

I did a little more layering on the second page.  I have more bling peeking out from behind the center photo.  I also cut up the page of Bingo cards and played peek-a-boo with a couple of them.  I matted all of the photos on black cardstock to ground everything and add some extra pop to the page.

Teresa Collins, Quick Quotes, Bling, Embellishments

I hope you're liking what you see so far!  The next project using more of the same page kit will be a 12 x 12 pocket page posted on Thursday.

I really curious to know how you use your page kits...do you just make a layout and toss the rest in with your scraps, or do you make multiple items?  Please tell me!!  I'd love to know what you're up to!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Money-Saving Monday - Page Kits


As promised last week, today I'm kicking off a new series about page kits, and how to make them totally versatile.  I thought I would start with a reboot of a vintage Money-Saving Monday post about how to make your own page kits...enjoy!


Happy new week!  As promised in last week's Money-Saving Monday, I spent a little time in my craft room putting some page kits together.  What did I learn in the process?  I learned that I have A LOT of crap and I better hurry up and start using it like crazy, or I'm gonna be in trouble and growing out of my scrap room before long!

I scoured Youtube for some tutorials about how to put page kits together, and while I found a few, most of them weren't quite what I was looking for.  I did find one that gave some very basic, helpful information, and it was enough to get me inspired and moving.


With that tidbit of information under my belt, I was ready to go!  I started by choosing two matching (or close to matching) papers for my base pages, (for double layouts) and then filled in with some coordinating patterns and colors. Then I got a paperclip and small sandwich baggie and started filling it with coordinating embellishments.  I started with ribbon.  I have a jar of ribbon scraps and ends that I like to save.  This was a great way to use a lot of those pieces that are normally buried and overlooked.  I continued on with my jars of brads and buttons.  Then I went for my binders with flat embellishments  i.e., bling, stickers, die cuts, etc.  I found ALL KINDS of awesome things that coordinated that I had totally forgotten about.  Here's what my first kit looked like when it was stacked and finished:


 And below, you can see all the coordinating bits and pieces all spread out.


Here's a close-up of some of the embellishments I plan to use.  I even found a spray mist that matched everything, and sprayed it on a scrap of white cardstock to remind me that it would look awesome to use too.


Below are a couple of different kits I made using the super hot grey and yellow color scheme.  I love the music pages on this one:


And the polka dots on this one!


I cheated just a little on the kits below by using mostly one paper collection that I picked up when I went to the Quick Quotes warehouse sale last month.  I had a few full sheets from this collection and lots of scraps, so i just added some ribbon and embellishments, and viola!


 I even found some matching title strips for some of these!


I've been looking for a way to use this light green burlap trim for a while now...I think I may have figured it out!


That's it for my home made page kits for now, but I think I'm on a roll so you may be seeing more of them soon!  So let's recap; For everything shown above, I strictly shopped my stash.  I didn't go out to purchase anything new for any of the kits.  I used ribbon scraps that I forgot I even had, for most of the kits.  Same with the embellishments...I had forgotten about most of the stuff that matched up perfectly with all that beautiful paper.

So, in the end, I have six new page kits that are ready to use at a moment's notice, if  feel like making a quick page, or if I go to a last minute crop.  And instead of spending $20 - $50 on a fancy page kit, mine were no extra money out of pocket!  Woohoo!!

A New Series!

Happy Thursday!  I want to share a new idea with you for a series I'm planning to start next week.  It's all about scrapbook page kits and how versatile they can really be.  Like most paper crafters, I love to make scrapbook layouts and cards, but in the past couple of years, I've also really gotten into Smash*books and pocket page systems.  I find myself sitting down to craft, and have so many possibilities, I don't know where to start.  First world problems, right?

A while back, I decided to make my own page kits for some crops I was heading to, and have really fallen in love with the idea since then.  I go through my papers, ribbons, embellishments, stamps, inks, etc., and put lots of coordinating goodies together.  I've used and remade quite a few of them, but have noticed that I always have some leftovers from each kit.

So...what I've decided to do, is feature a page kit each week (homemade for now, since this blog is all about being frugal and saving money) and spend the week doing projects from just that one kit.  I'm going to try to get a layout (hopefully a double layout since I like those best!) a pocket page, a Smash*book page and a card from each kit.  I'll feature one item each day on the blog and at the end of the week, you'll have seen projects all from just one kit. Here's the kit I'm going to be working with for next week:

Scrapbooking, Cards, Smashbook, pocket pages,

On Monday, I'll resurrect an older Money-Saving Monday post about how to make your own page kits (or how I did it, at least!) and then Tuesday, I'll kick off with my first double page layout from the kit you see above.  I hope this series has some worth for you and helps to inspire you just a little bit more.  So far, I'm inspired,  YAY!!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

WOYWW # 274 - Shopping Shopping Shopping!

Yay for Wednesday!!!!  And yay for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Its our weekly peek of desks and craft tables around the world so we can take a gander at what everyone else is working on!  Or in my case, what I've been bargain shopping for!

Bargains, Project Life, Scrapbooking, Paper crafting

My desk is FULL of bargains I've gotten in the past few weeks.  I have it all stacked up because I was making my first ever haul videos.  I just posted my first one yesterday, if you're interested in taking a peek!

Scrapbooking, Papercrafting, Cardstock, Tim Holtz Distress Markers

I had some incredible luck at a garage sale a few weeks ago and walked away with TONS of pocket page cards and goodies, along with a We R Memory Keepers 3x4 punch and a FULL 49 piece set of Tim Holtz Distress Markers for pennies on the dollar!  Yay!

Then Monday, for Labor Day (here in the US) Michael's Craft Stores had a few good sales and then a 20% off your entire order coupon on top of it.  So packages of cardstock were at an unbeatable price...so I got *gulp* 15 packages! Along with that were lots of clearance items and some Project Life goodies that were on sale.  I think I'm shopped out!!!  Yikes!

As always, I've hidden the WOYWW button/badge in case you want to hunt for it.  With all the stuff on the desk this week, good luck spotting it!  Hint: its way easier to see in one photo than the other!

Happy Wednesday!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

My First Haul Video!

Okay...as promised yesterday, here's my first haul video!  It's a little long, so next time I'll just show items and tell prices without all the extra commentary!   Haha!  I hope you like it!



Suggestions?  Please let me know...I'm ALL about learning!  Have a GREAT day!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Awesome Deals on Scrappy Goodness!

Gah!  Sometimes I don't like videos very much!  Like, when I'm trying to film and edit and upload one and it takes FOREVER!  My fault though for not doing it yesterday!!!


I was going to post my first-ever haul video, and will try to do that still later today or tomorrow, but part of it was to show you some AWESOME deals you can get today at Michaels.  By the time I get the video posted though, it will be too late for you to shop!!  So, in the mean time, I want to at least post a couple of awesome deals so you still have time to take advantage of them!


First off, Michaels has a coupon good through today for 20% off your entire purchase (excluding clearance.)  Here's a printable LINK.  The 20% coupon doesn't do a lot of good on their regular priced merchandise since you can normally get better deals than that, but if you combine the coupon with their current sales, there's a few good deal to be had.

If you're loving Project Life right now, all PL stuff is on sale for 40% off.  When you combine that with the 20% coupon, you can get a great deal!

Also, they have their 'hot buy" (basically, last year's designs) paper pads on sale for $5.  If you throw that 20% coupon in, you can get them for $4.  $4 isn't bad at all for a name brand paper pad that would normally cost you closer to $20!!

There's a few other good deals but I felt the ones above were the best bang for your buck.  Happy shopping!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Do you know of any other sites that offer free SVG files on a weekly basis?  Let me know in the comments.  I would love to add them to the list!

Need a Silhouette to cut out all this free goodness?
