Scrappin' Sports Stuff: Coal Mine Tour

There's nothing like sharing a little bit of your childhood with your own kids, and this layout does just that. During our trip home to visit family in PA last summer we took the coal mine tour in Ashland, the town where my father grew up. Check out the Scrappin' Sports Stuff blog for the layout details and supply list.

Scrapbook {Express}ions: The World

I have been enjoying documenting the special men in my life lately and have another layout to share. This one has photos from Mexico, Morocco and Germany at Disney's Epcot in Orlando. I posted a tutorial for using crackle paint and jewelry findings with the new Tim Holtz hanging sign Sizzix die at the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog today. Come check it out!

Like, Happy Birthday.

Today would not be complete without posting the card I made for my trendy and oh-so-edgy niece Lauren. I used the awesome Whatever set of stamps from myStampBOX.

♥ Happy birthday, Lauren! ♥

Scrappin' Sports Stuff: On Track

Well, here it is! This is quite possibly my favorite layout of all the zillion that I have made. I'm sharing it today, complete with instructions and the supply list, on the Scrappin' Sports Stuff blog.

The cool fabric tag originally said "Rock On" but I changed it to say "On Track." Tricky, huh?

Allow me to welcome a dear friend to the myStampBOX team: Maryfrances Fabbri! I have been honored to work for Maryfrances in the past, so getting to work with her again is a real treat. I made this card using the Road Trip and Funky Alphabet sets of myStampBOX stamps. Here's a little more info about Maryfrances: My name is Maryfrances Fabbri. I am a mother, wife, designer, and self proclaimed queen of creativity. Since I was a young girl I have always been interested in arts and crafts such as stamping, scrapbooking, and sewing. My style is clean with a touch of whimsy. Mini stickers letters and stamps of any kind just make my heart go a flutter. Pop dots take a close second!

I live in Massachusetts with my husband Gregg and our three children and of course our sweet boy Ace, the sock eating dog. I have had my worked published is various trade magazines and currently design for a top paper and scrapbook manufacturer as well as MyStampBox.

I am very excited to be working with the MyStampBox team and look forward to showing you the projects I have done with all the creative and inspiring stamps MyStampBox has to offer.
