Even More V-Day and Scrapbook Love

This weekend I was supposed to go up north with some friends, but after hearing about a 65 car pile-up on Friday night and 20 accidents Saturday morning during the news cast alone, we nixed the up north part and spent 7 hours scrapping locally. Here are 6 out of the 7 layouts I rocked out. The 7th isn't quite right just yet, so I'll have to post it next time. Now, since you all are waiting with baited breath, without further ado:

Coney Island, NY, NY

Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island Ferry

More ferry fun

Lily playing soccer in the yard

Maya on Halloween

First Day of School 2011

I also made Valentines for the girls to give to their classmates. I got the idea from Pinterest and used my cricut to cut the butterflies. Then I added punched hearts or stamps to the wings, cut two small slits in the centers and added a Tootsie Pop with glued on googly eyes.

V-day Wreath and Some Scrapbooking Love

This weekend I made an easy Valentine's Day wreath to hang on my front door. I still had a Christmas wreath up. Yes, I know its February but I'm a full-time working Mom so cut me some slack, okay?



I got the grapevine heart shaped wreath from the craft store and added ribbon and a bunting. I love buntings, can you tell?

I love scrapbooking and have spent waaaayy more money on letter stickers, buttons, ribbon, patterned papers and punches than I care to admit. I spend a lot of time looking at various scrapbooking and paper crafting websites and get lots of inspiration from lots of cool designers like Jen Jockisch and the girls at Studio Calico. And of course Pinterest has a ton of great ideas that can be easily scraplifted.

Here a a few layouts I did this weekend.



Yeah I know I miscropped this one and I'm too lazy and tired to go back and fix it, so please excuse the builder beige carpet back drop.


More scrapbooking layouts to come, since I'm off on a girls scrap trip this weekend! Woot!
