6/30 Storage tip

Here is a GREAT storage tip I ran across and just love the idea! You know all those
coat hangers we have? Well take a peak at this...

They use those coat hangers for men's slacks... you know the ones, and used large ziploc bags to put papers in. What I love about this idea is if you don't have those coat hangers ... why not use the regular ones? You will only be able to put one set of papers on those... but they would still be a great space saver.
Don't you just love this idea?

* Sorry the picture is so small I tried to make it larger. :(


Here are a few more summer layouts I thought I would share. I am not sure if I have shared these yet but I wanted to post them for summer ideas. These were some pages
from 2 summers ago .... they are so fun.... perfect for a little sunshine .... if it ever comes back! They use a lot of cardstock and just a little printed paper that means ... low cost :) ENJOY!

6/23 SUNSHINE :-)

The Sun if shinning... finally! I know it will be short lived after watching the weather but it's just gotta be the start of more good things to come right?
I may have shared this layout before - or not. They really are getting hard to remember which I have shared. I just love this layout and had the idea for a sunshine and once I did it... then I had to add the pic's. I decided to add a
little bit here and there and leave as much of the paper that I could. The paper line is basic grey it's a great page to do using your scraps. Don't you love the ric-rak? Hope you like ~ Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

6/22 4th July

Here is a great 4 page layout I did a few years ago. It used the Scenic Route paper Liberty line. I just love how they turned out, These also make great pages for your military loved ones if you don't scrap the 4th of July. I used the papers the dies cuts, buttons, stickers and chipboard. The ribbons were found at Michael's.
It is a older line but I think you might get lucky and find some or find something close you can just switch the papers out. Here is the link for Scenic Route with the product information.

Crop news -

Hey girls, I am so sorry, but I need to cancel this weekends crop. I have a terrible sinus cold with chest congestion and I was hoping that after going to

the doctor today I would feel better but I just don't think I do. This is the first time I have had to cancel and I just hate to do it, I just don't want to have to cancel last

minute, or not be up to it. That is no fun for either of us.

6/16 Pretty Paper

Don't you just love when you find some pretty papers you just gotta have? I do! My only problem is that they are so pretty I hate to cover them. This layout is no exception. I loved these papers and just couldn't bear to cover them. So I kept the layout simple and went with less is more. I think it turned out good don't you? My favorite part is... I can still see enough of those pretty papers.... I loved and had to have! :)

6/10/10 Bo Bunny Flower Child

I just love this paper line from Bo Bunny it really makes me think of summer. I love yellow, I think it is another one of those colors we just don't scrap enough of.
I think what I like most about this line is that it makes me think of summer without
being beachy or pool. It's just has a great summer feel.

Looks like some really nice weather is coming our way... just in time.... school is almost out of school... Yeah for Wednesday! So with summer just around the corner I will be blogging summer...everything that makes me think of summer for a while.
I am also thinking of some morning crops during the week, throughout the summer... what do you think?

6/7/10 Cards

Have you seen how expensive cards are getting these days? With the end of the school year comes Thank you cards for teachers,graduations,summer weddings... along with all the birthdays, plus fathers day and oh my gosh... that was a tun of money spent on cards. Have you seen all the great card kits they are coming out with lately? I thought I would share just a few from Basic Grey,Fancy Pants and We R Memory Keepers. Just to name a few. The kits include everything you need to make the cards and you can even add your own touches with ink, pop dots,ribbons and bling. The kits range in prices $8-$18. The more expensive kits tend to have more cards and embellishments but you can always add your own.

You can find some of these kits at your local scrapbook shops or I found them all plus more at ...
