So close!


Remember how I said about 2 weeks ago that I had to finish this 50th anniversary scrapbook for my grandparents & I still had tons to do? Well, I'm almost there. I'm about 15-16 pages away with it all being done. (Did I mention it is about 60 pages long?) Our whole family is getting together this weekend so it has to be done by tomorrow before we leave.

My mom has been helping me work on it the last 2 nights....we've stayed up til 1am scrapbooking! Actually, my favorite time to scrapbook is super late at night or just scrap all night! What can I say? I'm a night owl!

Last night I just ordered Sweethearts! I'm soo excited about playing with it! I already have card ideas in my head & things to add into this 50th scrapbook! Even though I'm giving it to my grandparents tomorrow, I had to save room to add those few cuts in later....some of them look like they'll fit too well not to use them! Besides, I'll have to ask for the album back to add in the pictures from all of us getting together... (Just one more excuse to play with a new cartridge!) ;)

Happy scrappin'!

2 weeks & lots to do!

These days I'm working on a scrapbook for my grandparents' 50th anniversary! It's a lot of fun, but sooo much work!

I've had to scan almost all of the pictures & then reprint them. And yesterday I had to convert slides into digital files. What a learning experience, but I enjoyed it as well!

We're going away as a family in 2 weeks for their anniversary so I'm hoping to have it all done by then, only I have barely done any of the actual putting the layouts together because my summer has been crazy busy and I feel like all I've done is scan pictures!

All I can say is...if I didn't have a cricut, I would have a lot of more work to do! Haha. I'm glad I can cut out all of the names & don't have to try and find enough stickers in all the letters....what a headache that used to be.
"I need two r's and I only have 1! That means either I have to switch to a different color or buy another sheet of stickers for only one letter."

Happy scrappin'!

I'll admit it. I'm a scrappin' addict!


I thought I'd join the blogging community. I'm an 18 yr old girl who loves to scrapbook & make cards!

I've probably been scrapping for about 8 years now. I have the Cricut Expression and absolutely love it! I am definitely addicted to this hobby. I love getting new Cricut cartridges to try out. My current favorites are Life's A Beach, Simply Sweet, & Wild Card! They're all adorable.

I enjoy keeping up with a few of the scrappin' blogs & thought I'd just join in on the fun! Three of my favorite blogs are:,, and!

I love keepin' up to date on all the new cartridges & news from Just A Scappin' and I enjoy getting project ideas from both Creative Critters Cricut Club & the new Christmas with the Cricut (also run by the lady from Creative Critters). I would definitely recommend looking those blogs up!

Until next time,
Claire <><
