{she scraps-a-lot}

So lately I've been called off from my job at the screen printers a LOT. I haven't gone in at all this week, and its left me with TONS of time to scrap, which of course is fun, but not the best for our financial situation!! Anyway - just wanted to post my latest LOs.

But first, i have to share this LO that Morgan, my cousin, scrapped with my new collab. kit!!!

Morgan ROCKS. She is such a talented scrapper, its amazing. She's always so creative. This LO really just made me grin from ear to ear. LOVE IT Morgan!!!

Oh and before I forget, just a reminder that you have until the break of dawn tomorrow to get a "Show-Off" emailed to me! All my show-offs will get a another good prize this week, so send those in!!

Ok - NOW on to what I have been scrapping this week. (I'll warn you, there's a LOT!)

I scrapped this first one for a challenge over at ScrapMatters where you use an ad to get inspiration!


You can check out that challenge here if you want!


I think I told you a while back that we had a triple date with Ben, Tami, Sean and Stacy to play Rock Band at our house. It was so much fun!!

Then I scrapped this pic from LAST Easter! I know, I jump all over!!! I'm trying keep up and catch up at the same time!! HAHA


This one is a little "sweeter" than I normally do, but I liked it sweet for Easter.

Back when we were Primary teachers we could not help but snap secret pics of our little Sunbeams during Primary. They were just soooo cute!


I miss being in Primary.

Back in September I posted about Josh giving me roses when I got my new job at Blue Sheep. I finally scrapped the pics!!


January Beading Beauties was the smallest turn-out yet. We might have to cancel or go to every other month! I think people are losing interest. No matter if 1 Beauty comes or 10, its still always fun!


I scrapped another Disneyland page FINALLY. It's officially been over a year since this trip to Disneyland, and it's still not done. Sheesh.


Cameron LOVES Tigger! I loved this paper, with the "springs". It was just too perfect for my Tigger page!!

And finally, the page I scrapped this morning. New Year's Eve!! :)


We had a really awesome New Year's Eve this year! So scrapping this page was fun!!

See! I told you I've been scrapping up a storm! I should start designing and stop playing!! hehe

See ya!

It's finally time to show you my new collab kit!! Minna (MiraDesigns) and I teamed up to create "Crazy Little Thing Called Love".

It's seriously jam-packed with TONS of papers, elements, & THREE alphas! "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" is available HERE exclusively at

Here are some detail shots for ya.

And a better look at the FAB papers.

Since the kit is so huge, we decided to offer it separately as a paper pack, and element pack as well!!

I scrapped another CT Lo for scraphead using some brand new Valentine products by Maura Zimmer.


These are pics from our anniversary trip to California!!

I scraplifted a paper LO and came up with this page of pics from by 27th birthday party last month! It's a CT LO for Shandy Vogt.


OHH!! And I scrapped this LO for a the Quick Page exchange at ScrapMatters!! Check out the exchange! At the end of the month you get ALL the QPs that everyone has done!


And here's the QP I made out of my LO!

{f is for . . .}

F is for . . .


Remember Felicity? Oh man. I loved that show. No, I still LOVE that show. I own all the seasons on DVD. That show . . . it was a part of me. I know that sounds really ridiculous, but it really was! And, if you know Felicity, you know if you were a Ben or a Noel. I was 110% a Noel. Noel was who she was supposed to BE WITH!!!! I swore I would find myself a Noel. and my mom. being the caring and protective mom she is, told me not to get my hopes too set on a Noel, because mostly he was a fictitious character and there weren't many real-life Noels out there. Well . . . turns out she was right, there aren't many. But I got lucky. I got Josh and he IS sooooo a Noel. He's BETTER than a Noel! He's everything that Noel was and more.

Anyway - Felicity is amazing. I just looked it up and its been off the air for almost 6 years now!! WHAT?! That can't be right! I was into Felicity right as I was graduating high school and going to college. Just like Felicity. Only she led a MUCH more exciting and dramatic life in New York City than I was living in Utah and Seattle. I feel like Felicity (and Keri Russell in general) is this long lost friend of mine. Haha. Ok - I'm out-dorking myself here. Time to stop typing!

Peace out. Good night!

{new products, show-offs & a big sale announcement}

It's Friday morning and outside my window the snow is falling soft and slow. It's like a movie!! It's a gorgeous winter morning here in Utah. Sure, its going to make the drive to work this afternoon slippery, but from the comfort of my desk its very pretty!! :)

Warning! This is going to be a LONG blog post!! There's a lot to announce today!!

First of all, I'm releasing some great new kits today!!

Lil' Brudder

This kit coordinates with an add-on called . . .

Called to Serve Add-On Mini

("Called to Serve Add-On Mini", along with "Lil' Brudder" can make one mega missionary-themed kit.)

And I loved the alpha SOOO much I decided to make it separate as well. So you can get just the fab alpha if you want.

I asked a few friends to scrap some LOs using my new kits and man did they come through for me!! Check it out!

Morgan scrapped some soooo sweet Daddy swing photos with Lil' Brudder! I knew Morgan would find the feminine side of this kit!

Marci got inspired to start scrapping a missionary scrapbook for Christian! Look how young he looks!! :) And she really rocked this kit!

And Danica added a little red to the mix, along with my Glitzy Sticker Alpha and some of my other kits and made this fun Pepsi 2-page LO!!

Finally, here are my own LOs. My own 'lil' brudder', Scotty, is now serving a mission and this is when he opened the call!

And last year we had a little trip to Laramie, Wyoming to see my other lil' brudder Chad graduate from Wyo-Tech and to pack him up and bring him HOME!!

(Both of these two-page LO's are coming out in template form VERY VERY soon. So watch for those!!)

Ok - so I know you're thinking, Brittney, where can I get these fabulous kits?!! Well, of course they are at ScrapMatters and Scraphead.

And here's some exciting news!! ScrapMatters is having a BIG "NEW" sale!! Everything that's new in the store since January 1st, including all of this new products, as well as my "Life's a Party" kit and my "Lots-o-Clusters Template Pack" are 30% off Friday thru Monday. Then they move to 20% off.
