School Tags FREEBIE

Made a couple of tags for Bernie's tag challenge, feel free to come and snag them.

Join us HERE and download


OH SNAP! LET'S SCRAP! is officially opened and we are so excited to have a site with no store, just fun and memory sharing. Here you can use any kit you like for your layouts and advertise for any designer you choose, as long as you are active in the forum...not too much to ask. 

I have the honor of starting off the Download-a-Day kits for the first 10 days of February, with LilyBelle Designs and Jan Waite providing beautiful kits for you the rest of the month. Using the the "How Sweet It Is," we each made a kit and broke it down into several daily downloads...I chose a cooking theme...what Will Fay and Jan choose? You'll have to come over to see. Here is a preview of what you can snag at February 1-10 HERE.


 Hope to see you there!


I am starting a NEW CHALLENGE at Oh Snap! Let's Scrap! 

This challenge is going to be ongoing in that each month we will scrap about the previous month, using your style, but focusing on traditional scrapbooking. Since we aren't all "traditional" scrappers, please use whatever format makes you happy, but my templates and examples will be traditional, as that is me. I will post several templates in this section to help give you ideas or for you to use, whatever is best for YOU. Some of you may want to start a 12-month, 2-page layout, where each month you add to it, like a progressive scrap; others may want to do a 1- or 2-page spread each month; and some of us just might want to use a calendar format. The idea is that by next January you will have an entire scrapbook for 2016 finished....not in time for Christmas, but in time for a birthday, mother's day, or father's day gift for your family as the year goes on.
I really want you to put thought into these doesn't matter if you finish during the month or by the end of the year, I just want you to have your year captured to pass on to your family. I will post a gift at the end of each month, just for stopping in, so rather you participate or not, you can snag a gift from me, but, of course, I hope you will join in on capturing our memories!

As long as you are active and participating, you can use kits and advertise for any designer on the web, as long as it is family-friendly. So, for example, you can post your layout, along with a preview of the kit you used and a link to that designer's store. 
Let's make 2016 Memorable!

Here is a sampling of the templates I have ready for you to use HERE.


These are the posting bonuses for  February and March challenges.


So I hope you will stop by our NEW site and join in on the fun while capturing the memories for your family to cherish for many years.

Closing Store Sale

I'm posting this early because it's vacation time and me and hubby are going on a road trip...not sure when we will leave or how long we will be gone, but it's sure to be FUN!

There is a season for all things and having a digital scrapbooking store for me is coming to an end. I will still make things as bonuses for challenges and to give away here and there, but the pressure of so many commitments has run its course for me. I need time for my new craft room and my family.

I will have a sale from September 1 through November 30....come and take advantage of can get a ton of stuff for just a few dollars.

FREE WordArt

I made a WordArt pack for you...hope you enjoy it and will come to Ivy Scraps and share how you use it, but in either case have fun with it.

Download and Enjoy!

My New Craft Room

I have the BEST hubby ever. I went home one day and said that I wanted to turn the "cat" room into a Craft Room. The next day he was sending me links of things I needed..LOL....2 months later, here it is, an Amazing room just for me, my scrapbooking, crafting, sewing, and yes, the cats love it too.

At least he knows where to find me now. It was hard to photograph and get all of my "stuff" in there!

My Daughter's Journey

My daughter went on a journey this year where she was to get healthy and compete in a fitness competition in April of 2015. Since she was ahead of schedule her training put her in a practice competition in November, where she did amazing...placed 7th (or maybe 9th). Her friends supported her meal planning and food plan and were there to cheer her on.

The scripture is her favorite and one she tries to live by in all she does. I am so proud of her always, but this journey was especially a challenge for her, but she did it and will compete again in July (moved it so she could stay in Houston and not travel).

She is so beautiful inside that the outside doesn't matter, but it's something she wanted to mark off of her bucket list.


I know I've not been around a lot lately, but trying to get back in the swing of I made a tag for you to use on your scrapbook pages...ENJOY!!
