National Scrapbooking Month!

I was sent these fun things for free from Close to my Heart. As always-I never post about things that I don’t LOVE!


(there is an awesome giveaway at the bottom so make sure to scroll down to enter!)

Did you know May is National scrapbooking Month! We recently sat down one Sunday and the kids pulled out all their scrapbooks to look through and reminisce! My eldest daughter (13) has 3 BULGING scrapbooks. My son (11) has 2 packed in binders. My daughter (9) has about the first 4 months of life and a few birthdays!


She was sad and totally bummed that she didn’t have a scrapbook to look through! I felt so bad! (Given–she still has a bajillion pictures to look through!)  I had actually just got the cutest scrapbook Kit from Close to my Heart at the blog conference I was at and sat down right then and there and whipped out 10 pages for her! And I was SOLD. I literally just need some glue and scissors and all these cute pages just came together so quick!


So when Close to my Heart offered to send me the newest kit…I jumped on board!

It’s called live beautifully 

It’s so pretty!!

(you can snag it HERE but only for the month of May!)

The pages came together so quick…and they are GORGEOUS! I love that I can follow the layouts exactly…or I can put my own twist on it. I also love that there are little spots to write about the photos. I don’t have a journal so I always try to write as much as I can in the scrapbook (double duty!)

They also sent me a gorgeous new binder to put all my pages in..and I had to add some heat transfer vinyl on it to jazz it up!

I actually didn’t know if it would work..but it did!

I cut out my heat transfer vinyl with my silhouette cameo and weeded out all the vinyl that isn’t part of the design.

Place it where you want it…

I laid a thin piece of fabric over to protect the binder and pressed for 15 seconds each section.

Then peel off carrier sheet 

(there are two different cut files because I couldn’t decide!

Get the silhouette Cameo cut file HERE
