My New Baby

    Well, I have a new baby in my family. Her name is Silhouette Cameo...Cammie for short. Yes, I am kidding but WOW, I am so excited!! My Silhouette SD died on me several months ago. Unfortunately, I was not able to get it fixed in the manner that I wanted so I waited for a good coupon or sale, and here she is! 

     I decided to start her off slow with a simple cutting file that I found in the Silhouette store. Hexagons are so popular right now and I found one that I thought would work with a really fun layout from my friend Erica who is the guest designer for this week! Here is what I created:
     It was such a fun sketch and I loved the hexagons placement. I used the Studio Calico Central High Scrapbook Kit for most of my layout (I won a 6 month subscription that expires with the November kit. It has been my favorite win to date!)  Additionally, my mom had given us an old atlas so I decided to cut it up to place behind the hexagons for a fun effect. I popped a couple of pieces, misted some fun mistables in the corner and it all came together pretty fast! Another page to my Disney album complete! Hooray! More to come for sure. 

     In other news, the county fair just wrapped up and my scrapbook that I entered got disqualified. I am claiming that it got DQ'd for being too! They said it wasn't entered in the correct category. The categories for our fair are from at least 10 years ago and scrapping has changed so much since then. Oh well! I may cut back on entries for next year. After eight years of doing the fair, I think I need a little break. My baking didn't do very well either. It wasn't my year this year! I will continue to do what I do and scrap for me and my family. Not to win awards, not to follow every trend, but to document life as it happens. Have a great remainder of the weekend all!

Scrap Happy~




  1. Congrats on getting a new machine, yay! And boohoo on the fair! I've never entered a fair competition, it's actually on my bucket list! But I'll remember your experience and double check catergories! waving hi from the chilly hills of North Carolina :)

  2. congrats on your new baby! I just got one a few weeks ago too and am having so much fun figuring out all that it can do. I think we are in for some great creations.
