All this talk of Mommy porn makes me giggle-- 50 Shades of Grey Thickers--Id buy that!

I'd buy them too! I am picturing a really cool ombre...maybe a satiny fabric...

So Jill, your pages are always so fun in subject and appearance. You use great design fun colors and I just want to know, I don't know, any tips for us? You make it look so easy!! I think my all time fave of yours is the birthday one where you talk about catching the ice-cream truck.


I guess the best way to respond to this is to make clear that it isn't easy -- but it's FUN! I take forever to create pages because I am always moving things around and walking away and talking to my supplies (oh, yes) and second-guessing myself. I will be that GG with the 3 1/2 hour video.

The best tips that I can give are these:
- Embrace the story, and tell it like you're talking to people who get you. Use your real voice.
- Choose elements and accents that relate to the theme. There's a method to the madness. Maybe I overanalyze a little too much, which slows my process, but in the end, it's worth it. I want everything to mean something, in a way.
- Don't force a page. You likely won't be happy with it.
- If your hands aren't covered in three different colors and your clothes are clean, something has gone terribly wrong.

Say farewell to the concept of the scrap room. These times herald the coming of the "scrap bunker."



Funny, but I want one.


Glad I'm not the only one who's ears perked up at this.

@Jill - thanks for the geeky anniversary link. Looks like I got some of those gifts for my dh out of order. ha ha! My husband is a computer geek by occupation, a nerd and a dork. I am also all 3, not just by association (although not very geek savvy).

I was never a distressing fan.


I don't like the grungy type of distressing (ripping, tearing, and then inking) but I do ink my edges. Not so much that it can be considered distressing. Just enough that it makes the inked edges stand out from the rest of the papers I'm using!

I still do like distressed and grungy.

Paint, rip, ink, scratch.

But I love art journaling, too, and all those are so fun for AJ.

Oh my gosh, this is so totally me Jill! I second guess myself constantly when I'm scrapping. And spend too much time trying to find the perfect paper or embellishment. And I talk to myself and my supplies. It took me ALL DAY yesterday to complete one layout!

We should be best friends.

I'm so busy this evening. It's the 20th and last day of Christmas so I'm taking the tree down and all the decorations.
Aww, I'm so sad it's over. Can't wait to start planning next Christmas. Yes, I know, I'm crazy! lol!

This afternoon I'll be working on my "Scrap Your Stash" video. Any requests as to what items you'd like me to attempt to use? I'm up for a challenge!


Pattern paper, stamps, washi, ribbon, buttons - doesn't matter. I feel like I hoard everything!
