Fall pages anyone?

There is snow outside my window as I type this. But we don't necessarily scrapbook Fall while it happens but after the memories are made and the pictures printed. So any time is the right time to scrapbook your Fall memories!

This one has some fun Cricut cuts. It was inspired by the lovely Sheri Rottler who is a Cricut master.

The colors in the Sangria paper packet are so gorgeously Fall! 

But they don't have to be Fall only.

Family pages are valid any time of the year!

Happy Memory Making and Keeping!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It has been a crazy busy November but in a very good way. I'll share later. But today, I am grateful for family, friends and creativity.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Easy Halloween Treat Bags

Need a cute and easy Halloween treat this season? My talented friend, Sheri Rottler, shared this great idea with me.

Cut a reverse stencil using the new Cricut Artistry Cartridge. With a sharpie/permanent marker,  color the face on a plastic bag.

How cute is that?

Stamp a tag. To dress it up, mask it and add cobwebs.


Fill you baggie with treats and tie on your tag.

So cute! Happy Halloween!

A little Halloween scrapbooking

Just a little Halloween scrapbooking! Making sure I'm all ready to document the festivities. 

This month's Cherish Your Memories group kit featured Nevermore and the Nevermore complements. I love that silhouette of the trick or treaters. I love the vintage feel of it. 

Happy Halloween!

Happy World Card Making Day!

Last night, I put up my Halloween decorations so a Halloween card for World Card Making Day seemed appropriate.

Hello Life! Hello Good Friends!

I recently went to my (gulp) 30 year class reunion. It was so good to see friends and relive memories. But I also got a chance to hang with some of my very best friends. I still see them, I don't have to wait for high school reunions to catch up, but it was a good excuse to document our ongoing friendship.

I really truly do love these people.

For these pages, I used a combo of all three Hello Life! stamps sets available during September, National Stamping Month. Here's another look at the three.

Pocket Scrapbooking

Card making


If you want these sets, act fast as after September 30th, they will be no more. Remember, choose one or two at $13.95 each or get all three for $34.95. And I'd love to see what you create. If you are on Instagram, use the hashtag #ctmhhellolife.

Happy Stamping!
