My New York

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

I've spent the weekend working on a scrapbook of my New York adventure. More accurately, I've been procrastinating by scouring Pinterest for travel book inspiration!

New York Scrapbook
I saved every last ticket stub and map and pamphlet. The had part is writing; I'm no good at captioning or “journaling” cause it always seems so cheesy (this is my main beef with scrapbooks!)

Wanderlust – Free Printable 3″x4″ Journaling Cards

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

I found a vintage atlas at my favorite local antique store for a few bucks, just begging to be ripped apart and used in all kinds of amazing projects. I scanned in some pages and created this set of 12 3″x4″ journaling cards for Project Life or any other scrapbooking/papercraft project your heart desires.

This download is in .zip format and consists of 12 individual CMYK .png files at 300 DPI – perfect for printing. Two have transparent backgrounds for framing your own images – to use, simply place over your photo in your favorite image editing program and crop. The photos in the preview are for example only and are not part of the download.

DIY Wire-Bound Blog Planner

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

I’m a sucker for planners/notebooks, and I was inspired by various blog planners on Pinterest (of course).

Here’s my attempt – from various scraps and papers in my stash and my Zutter Bind-It-All¬†(I seriously love that thing – and on Amazon it’s $53.30- I paid almost $80 for mine at Archivers!)


It definitely involves a vast assortment of washi tape. I designed the pages and printed them at home – I used to hesitate to print my own pages for notebooks because I didn’t like the paper quality – then I “splurged” and got the expensive printer paper instead of the cheap copy paper. What a world of difference!

I honestly haven’t written a word in it yet! I’m kind of stumped, haha. Blank-page fright.
What would you put in your ideal blog planner?

On the agenda for today: pretty paper to be turned into envelopes and planning the garden.


My weekend unfortunately (as usual) just involves work. Anyone have any good plans?

Have you heard about these Smash books? I saw them earlier this year in an Archivers store in the twin cities, but they didn’t have a lot of accessories out yet. I’m kind of lusting after them now.

Hmmm. Yeah,¬†I kind of want this. And it’s like scrapbooking, but without all the dumb sentiment and cheese (Matt and I still laugh about all the tags and stickers for scrapbooking that say “ALL BOY” and “RoUgH aNd TuMbLe!”. ¬†Seriously? I don’t think there is anything *less* “all boy” than scrapbooking about it. Just sayin’.)

I discovered the Coffee Girl Crafts blog via Pinterest, and her Smash books really solidified me on wanting one.
