Now, for a little about me! I am a stay at home of 3 boys (11, 9.5 and 4.5). I've been married to my fantastic husband, Andy, for 12 years and last year we moved from Southern California to Southern Indiana. Since 1998 we've lived in 6 states and we are NOT a military family. I started scrapbooking after my aunt showed me a couple of pages she had made and supplies she had and I was HOOKED. I started for myself about 11 years ago with my wedding album and I've never looked back. (My aunt, on the other hand, quit scrapping shortly after!) I am a huge fan of current trends (I'm usually hopping on the bandwagon for whatever is hot) and Instagram. However, some of my mainstays are quite old school -- vellum, shipping tags and stamping.
Now, like I said, latest trends are us! (Okay, me!) This page was made just days after I received the newest Amy Tangerine collection, Ready, Set, Go! I had already made one page I loved with it -- and then this one just popped up with lots of stitching and Elle's Studio Tags.
Stamping is funny for me. For a long time I was a stamp collector and I don't think I used one. Now, I use them in pages and on cards. I'm not particularly a perfectionist when it comes to stamps--I don't mind if they are a little messy or not quite right. I love what they add to a page and how you can change them up to fit the mood.
The funniest thing about me and my scrapping is that I resisted card making for a long time. Then, after I resisted, I considered myself a reluctant card maker. NOW, I consider myself a scrapbooker that makes cards. I don't create brand new cards with brand new supplies. I use scraps of whatever pages I was working on plus my favorite sentiment stamps. I love how it turns out and they truly always just resemble my pages!
Thanks for reading along! I've had a lot of fun popping in here and I look forward to reading more inspiration here in the future.
Jennie's pages are happy, colorful, and very well balanced. We love how she changes up the sizes of the photos on her pages and how she is not afraid of white space. Her handwriting is to die for, and her cards are perfect little works of art. Be sure to keep up with Jennie by visiting her cheerful blog, and her facebook page, and you may find her on twitter right here!
