Quote | “Come Josephine…”

Lyrics | Come Josephine In My Flying Machine

I keep getting this lyric randomly stuck in my head. If you were a teenage girl in the 90’s, then you know how you first heard of this song.

This month marks SIXTEEN FREAKING YEARS since Titanic’s release. I was crazy obsessed with the movie (it’s still the only one I’ve seen three times in a theater), and I think my insane Gatsby excitement this past year has reverted me back a bit to this one.

Watch this if you want to get some of those teenage feelings back. And of course, here is the 1911 Ada Jones and Billy Murray version of the song.

Oh yeah, and Mr. Burns rendition.


Supplies: Bazzill Green Tea (cardstock), Fancy Pants What A Wonderful Day 6×6 paper pad (hot air balloon, blue paper), Quickutz Eliza alphabet (retired), silver brads

Make | 12×12 Layout – Photobooth Fun

12x12 Scrapbook Layout | "Photobooth Fun" | Blackbird Darlin

The moment of discovering the woodgrain cardstock over at LCI Paper Company was a game changer for me. I. CAN’T. EVEN. It’s so great you guys, but the buying in bulk thing is the only deterrent. Unless you’re like me and all you want is woodgrain cardstock in bulk for the rest of your scrappy life.

The other things on this layout that are not woodgrain are: Film border washi tape from Michaels! Patterned paper from the 6×6 Echo Park This & That pad! Square picture prints from Persnickety!

Let’s talk about the title letters for a minute though. No, those are not Thickers. I know I’m going to get stoned by 93% of scrapbookers with broken Marvy Uchida punches for saying this, but…


I don’t get the obsession with Thickers.


Why?! Well, probably because I can cut my own by running adhesive-backed foam through my QK Revolution and not have stacks of X’s and Z’s in my stash.

So I guess I actually DO love Thickers, just the DIY version of them. (Please tell me I’m not the only one that does this) The alphabet I used was the 4×8 Chandelier die, and the foam itself is from Michael’s. The nesting circle die is also Quickutz, the big one in white cardstock, and the skinnier one in kraft. Journaling was just a black Micron pen on white cardstock scraps!

By the way, I really love those pictures. What a fun day that was!

Quote | “Decide what to be…”

Lyrics | Head Full Of Doubt | The Avett Brothers

I have this problem with perfection. To the point it actually interferes with what I love most. (Being dorky with paper)

It’s the dumbest thing ever, I mean seriously.

So, I’m changing the way I’ve done these lyric posts in the past…instead of graphic images, I’m going to allow myself to just play with my craft supplies instead, using words I love, and not worry about perfect picture placement, the right sentiment, or just screwing up something.

Making the above 6×6 of The Avett Brothers, “Head Full of Doubt, Road Full of Promise” and getting this photographed and posted has taken me about an hour and half.


Which is kind of amazing for me. BOOYAH GRANDMA.


Supplies: paper from Lawn Fawn, bird washi tape from Pretty Tape, woodgrain cardstock from LCI Paper, photo corners, Dymo Caption Maker, and Quickutz Studio Classic alphabet

Make | Card – “Come Away With Me”

"Come Away With Me" Card | Blackbird Darlin

I have such a weakness for travel themed paper products. Here is an example of me putting some of them to use. YEAH!

The patterned background, map image, and banner are all taken from the My Mind’s Eye Come Away With Me 6×6 paper pad. I cut the cream and kraft circle with these Quickutz dies, and stuck a couple of gunmetal colored brads through the map to add a bit of dimension. Mmmmmmm dimensiiionnn…

I also had to ink around the patterned paper because I can’t seem to not do that.

And for once, the photo corners are actually not real photo corners. Ancient QK 2×2 die! Booyah! Getting used!
