Please Visit Us!

As the economy grew worse, so did small scrapbook stores' chances of making ends meet. There are a few scrapbook stores left, but hardly any in comparison to what it was five years ago. As the stores began to close, our embellishments and whatnot had no place to sell other than the Internet. My mom and I were not very good at e-marketing, not to mention LIFE happened, and now we are just about ready to give up the Scrap Anatomy website.

While we still scrapbook, lately our attention has been focused on new crafty endeavors such as painting! We are having soooooo much fun getting back into our paints and paintbrushes! We will not be updating the Scrap Anatomy blogspot, so please visit us at our art blogs!

I can't say exactly what the future holds, but I think we might start selling our work on Etsy. We'll keep you updated though! Thanks for checking in on us :)

Paper Garden Revisited

For a couple years I designed pages for a cool scrapbook kit club called Paper Garden. Originated by the marvelous Christine Shows and then taken over by the fantastic Mattie Soria. The website is currently being restructured, but if you'd like to check it out, go to: 

I was always excited to get the monthly kit and see fresh, new paper that was just being released from the manufacturers. Sometimes there would be luxury items that I would never spend the money on myself, but would find myself loving and wanting to buy more. For example, big brads, alphabet stickers, paint masks, and more.

Here are some of my favorite pages that I made. Seeing that I did it for a couple years, I have more favs, but these are a few I found on my memory stick. Go to the website under Gallery to see more.

Blank Pages for Halley's Album

I made these pages blank of purpose. Lately I have been scrapbooking for pretty much everyone but me. I love to make scrapbooks as gifts for my friends, especially if it's for a new baby! 

Here are some layouts that I made for my for Halley's first birthday album. I had a lot of fun making "She's Got Personality" and "Halley's Top Picks." I used stamps that leave room for you to journal small tidbits. 

On the "Arizona" page my mom made dry-embossed embellishments for me. She is awesome! 

Also, if you click on the layout and see it up close, you can find the measurements for the future photo in pencil. I figured it would make cutting and pasting the pics in a lot easier. 

Thanks for letting me share some of the layouts. Hope it helps out if you are planning on making a gift album.

Just For Fun...

Here are some pages and cards that I am posting just for fun. This blog is very easy to post pics on, whereas my website I have to find my password, login, blah, blah...

It's been a long time since I've done anything scrapbook related, but these are pages I have never posted. A few of them are from the scrapbook kit club I used to design for called Paper Garden Scrapbooking. I think I'll try to keep posting things I am doing in case anyone is interested.
