Easter Weekend Scrapbooking

This past long weekend my boyfriend, his brother and I decided to drive out to Edmonton to visit their family. They took turns driving, we left at around 7pm on Thursday and got there around 7am Friday morning. Boy were they surprised to be woken up by us. It was a great weekend with beautiful weather, lots of yummy food, and some shopping :) I managed to score some of the new Amy Tangerine line, as well as some new Studio Calico and Crate Paper. Since we drove out, I preplanned some pages, printed a bunch of the Sunday Sketches over at Studio Calico, printed photos, and brought my scrapbook stuff. I managed to get 5 layouts done! Oh and my car has a new name given to "her" by Steve's brother Matt - Penelope. She may not have much power, but that little Tercel got us there and back in one piece with no problems, and she's cheap on gas. Oh and the odometer hit 250,000 km on the way back!

Drive by night

Blue skies for the drive home on Monday
Here are the layouts I completed while I was there:

Also, I've been having so much fun cutting stuff with my Cameo. I think I like cutting and designing the stuff more than I do using it :). I made the ticket and the journaling cards for the "Spidey Cat" layout with my Cameo. Since I'm loving it so much, I am thinking of listing some stuff in an Etsy shop.

I'm thinking maybe some of these:

and also maybe some "polaroid" type frames that fit the Project Life pockets. What do you think?
Is there anything else that you would like to see?



  1. Oh my goodness! Spideycat is just too cute!

    I would love to see you do an etsy shop! I'm loving all the things you've been making with your cameo.

  2. wow that is some amount of scrapping you got done, they are fabulous. I think you should open a shop as there are so many ladies who don't have a cameo and would gladly buy some bits and bobs

  3. Love your pages Vanessa. They are all fantastic!

  4. i loved your labels so much! I bought some others from an etsy seller and i thought yours were better!

  5. Amazing layouts and love what you are making with your cameo!!

  6. How wonderful you got so many great layouts done! The items you hope to sell look great!

    P.S. My van's name is Eileen. :)
