2018 Scrapping Recap & 2019 Scrapping Goals


I always like to take a look back over my year and see how much scrapping I accomplished and then think about what I might want to accomplish in the upcoming year. 2018 was a lower scrapping year, with a total of 137 pages. I did finish my 2018 family album (technically finishing the last page today!) and I'm happy with that. I only got half way through my calendar album. I might still finish that since it was a planner type review album. I still want to finish my new house album, that's the next on my priority list. I did finish Abi and Isaac's albums and got those printed this year. That was a big accomplishment!

My 2019 scrapping goals are to keep up to date on my weekly family album and finish our new house album. That's about it. I do have other thoughts floating around in my head about other scrapbook projects I might want to tackle but nothing concrete.  Maybe once I finish our house album I'll pin down exactly what I want to do next.

Here's a little look at how many pages I've scrapped in the last 6 years. I've been scrapping longer than that but I've only been keeping track for the last 6 years.

Interesting that I scrapped the same amount of pages in 2015 and 2018. I wonder what the common denominator is there?


What did you scrap in 2018? Do you have any specific goals for 2019?

First off, I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas! You all have been so great, supporting my small business over the last 10 years. Thank you!

Yesterday, I scrapped the card above and then I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the Christmas Cards and Newsletters I've made over the years.

Last year I didn't scrap a card but I made this re-cap page. I think that counts as a Christmas Newsletter.

Week 51: Friends, School, Christmas Play...

I got caught up last week and I'm making sure I don't get behind again...at least until 2019 is over. One more page to go! I can't believe it.

This week was filled with friends, school, music, a Christmas Play, a live nativity, and a bearded dragon.

2019 Calendar by Amanda



Amanda, one of my creative team members, has created another beautiful calendar. She used Simple and Sweet Album Templates 7. For herself, she created 12x12 pages, and for her family, she converted them to 8x11.

I usually scrap with the pictures in mind first. For this project, I found it easier to scrap the base pages then find pictures to fit. I organize my pictures by date so it was easy to find January 2018 pictures to fit the January 2019 calendar. - Amanda

She used Shutterfly to print her calendars and made sure to use coupons!

Here are some close-ups of her calendar. 
*Look below for a full list of products used.









She had also planned on using my 2019 Calendar Grids and made these but then ended up using the pre-made grids with Shutterfly. Here's what she did with them.

New Alphabet and Monthly Cut Outs

Liz has some new Cut Out designs in the store. These are so fun because they make great dimensional layering on your digital or hybrid scrapbook page. These come big (about 10-11 inches), so you can use them big for a bold look. But of course, you can also shrink them down for a subtler look. These are great stash-builder packs, and they are 20% off through December 23, 2018.



Here's some inspiration for you!

Week 45 - 50! Better late than never!

I have finally caught up to our current week, and I'm in disbelief that there are only 2 weeks left in 2018! It's hard to believe I'll be printing my 2018 album soon. Who else is ready to get that 2018 album printed? Or do you have a different album you are working on?

Here's a close up of the pages. Hope you enjoy!
