Letters and Pages

It seems to be scrapbooking week over in my neck of the woods.  I've put the pajamas and other projects on hold while I do this.  I've also moved out of my craft room and into the dining room.  Sometimes it gets lonely up there and sometimes I like to share the pages with my husband for feedback, so it's easier to do that from the dining room.

So here are some bathtime pictures on a page:
I used a sheet from the Citrus stack and those stickers have been in my sticker stash for over seven years, I bet.

And then there's this page to commemorate her first election.
I had this sheet of stickers from the 2008 election that were not doing anything except take up space, so I cut them up and this is the result.

And then the next pages are sort of subdued.

So, the other day, when I was wandering around the craft store, I kept looking for new styles of stencils for letters, like these:
I have a couple sets of stencils from a bunch of years ago and have always liked them, but I wanted some different options.  These were no where to be found.  So what do people do nowadays?  Does everyone use those cutting machines?  I have a cricut, but am sort of afraid of it.  I got it from someone who was selling hers and I don't think it came with directions.  It also didn't seem to cut very well.  I don't know.  Anyway, so is that what people do?  

Also.  I went into Archiver's.  Dude.  That place is serious and intimidating.  There's no way I am going to get my pages that fancy.  And everything in that store is so expensive. Insane.

  1. RACHEL!! I am soooo excited to see you scrapbooking. NOw I need to come to visit so we can "crop" together:) I am an alpha sticker fan...quick, cheap, and easy lol. Cricuts can be a lot of fun too. Don't be afraid. Sometimes the cutting mat and blades get old and need to be replaced. Cost for both should be under $20 and well worth it because then you can cut any title you want! Z is so stinkin' cute I can't stand it. LOVE all of your pages and Z's choice in candidates too:) Oh and that Cat...fantastic!
