"Nichol - Can you please tell me which trimmer you use?"
I use this one. LOVE it! http://www.avantlink.com/click.php?tt=cl&mi=10513&pw=26675&url=http%3A//www.twopeasinabucket.com/shop/fiskars/96077-premium-personal-paper-trimmer-12-inch/%3Ffilters%3D_fiskars_
The only bad thing about watching these videos is that I watch them on Wednesday morning, between 7:30 and 8:00, with my morning coffee. I watch the video and I want to go scrap immediately but I can't because I'm at work and my work day starts at 8:00! Nichol, you inspire me and I love your work, it's absolutely charming. :-)

Galleries: Scrapbooking, Stamping
This week's layout and video features 4x6 traditional photos (from a film camera) and of course, stamping!
I had previously scrapbooked these photos of my daughter when she was just a toddler on a 2-page layout that although was pretty, it definitely didn't tell any sort of a story whatsoever. There was no journaling and the entire focus of the page was on the “stuff” and not the photos + the story. I decided to give these photos the do-over treatment. Because I had added some eyelets to the corners of a couple of the photos, I cropped the photos down to 3.5x5 for my page.
I added a stamped title using Ali Edwards stamps (colored in with Faber Castell Big Brush Markers in Scarlet Red 118, Orange Glaze 113, May Green 170 & Light Cobalt Turquoise 154). I also included a stamped word in the journaling using another new Ali Edwards stamp set.
The accents were created using the MME Stella Rose doily stamps and punching out the stamped images with circle punches.
Additional stamping inks used:
