Vinyl on Layouts...yes I DO scrapbook!

Yes, I do scrapbook. Sometimes. I am not usually productive at crops, etc, but rather enjoy puttering away at a LO in between laundry loads on my days off from the vet clinic. I recently printed off these pics from the summer, and had a really enjoyable time creating these pages. My style, as you'll see, is quite simple and plain (nothing on it - like my burgers!!).

Vinyl used: black bird, and orange title (incl. the heart)
I loved these pictures. Right now I use a binder-style album, and I love it! I also scrap in 12x12, 8x10, 9x9 and even 6x6 - all together. I love how it shows a layered-look to my album.
Vinyl used: title "views of summer"
These are my offspring... you gotta love 'em!

Vinyl used: the teal stars
This is a great photo of my daughter Emma, and my niece Asha. I loved the paper (not what I normally use).

Vinyl used: the pink butterflies/dragonfly (yeah, that's it!)
This is a page I kicked-out yesterday (day off). My vinyl order came in, and the grey was different than I've got before. It was a bit more silver-grey (not sure if you can tell from the picture though). The shapes give a bit of a modern feel (so unlike me!).

Vinyl used: silver-grey shapes and butterfly (classic "me")
This one is just a fun mix of stuff laying around on my desk.

Vinyl used: "time" in ivory and teal "design"
I finally managed to scrap the kids' first day of school - yeah, it's February, not bad 'eh?!
Vinyl used: sky blue "3 KIDS off to school"
I loved this photo I found of my daughter. You know the ones... you printed off at the time, and thought you'd do something "special" with it someday, and then never did! So I bit the bullet and figured that actually being in my album instead of on a shelf is "special" enough. I stitched around the felt frame (from CTMH), and added a bit of bling to my chipboard hearts. Very girlie.
Vinyl used: NONE - believe it or not, I can scrap the odd time without it.

Hopefully I have inspired something... or else just enjoy!

Take care,

Vinyl decor... you gotta love it!

Okay, so I met Heather from Winnipeg when she came out here to my friend Brandy's to scrap for the weekend. (What an awesome lady! - yeah, both of them!) So, Heather decided she wanted some vinyl to decorate her scrap space walls. This is what was decided...
I ABSOLUTELY loved the idea of the definitions on the walls. Here, we did Create, Inspire and Dream, in the definitions, and they added butterflies and a bird on a branch as well. You may have seen my sister Jill use this same branch/bird combo on her layouts (check out , but I never thought to place the branch up-and-down instead of sideways.

Here is a closer look at the definitions. The girls said they weren't hard to put on the walls either. I had done each definition in a large "chunk" together, so they didn't have too much small stuff to piece together.By the way, Heather, I LOVE the wall color. The white really pops on that blue.

I also sent along the same words, but in a larger font, that she decided to put along a separate wall. She added the brackets with the middle word - mostly I think because she really liked them!
(BTW - doesn't she look like the organizational guru! Anybody else looking at their own space right now, thinking about taking out that wall that leads to the livingroom!!)
The wall to the left of the one above, is a tan-color, so they placed the dark brown vinyl on it. Check this out...

Closer looks at both little "collections".

Thanks alot for sharing the pictures with me... I love them! Well done! I anybody else inspired?? I am.

Enjoy these treasures... til next time.

Take Care.

I'm still here!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am still here...

It's been a crazy winter, but things are starting to settle down. Hockey is slowly coming to an end. The cows are starting to calve, and the weather seems to be getting nicer. Hope you are all watching and cheering on our Olympic athletes ... GO CANADA!

I got an email the other day from Mel in Saskatchewan (crazy gal!). She sent me a pic of a set of letters she had done of mine... LOVED it! So I thought I would share it with you all.

Well done, Mel. Very nice!
Now that I've figured how to put pics on this way, I hope to have more up on the blog in the next little while. I actually managed to scrap the other day last week, and of course, vinyl is on MOST every page. You gotta love it!
Have a great weekend, and until next time...
Take Care,
Laura Lee
