Scrapbooking about scrapbooking

When you have a passion, it's wonderful to find friends to celebrate that passion with. I'm guessing if you are reading this, then you too are passionate about Scrapbooking.

I met a group of women on scrapbook.com about 10 years ago and we became online friends. WOw- 10 years!! About 7 years ago, we talked about traveling to meet in person at a crop. The central local seems to be Michigan and Ohio. We made it happen. I can't attend every year (more like every other due to the cost of flights) but when I get to go, it's like I've known them forever. That is the joy of sharing something so personal like scrapbooking- something that celebrates family, friends, and every part of our self we want to remember and treasure and share. 
We might get a little rowdy!

MOXXIE created a funky new line called Queen of the CROP. If you go to crops or just want to showcase some fun creativity, check out this line. 
This page has a splash of black mist and uses the back of the scan code strips. It's simple but fun. I adore that purple paper! 

For the next page, I used the size of the journaling cards to pic the size of my photos. But I had so many photos, I couldn't get them all on one page....so I made a book on the page. Simply using scrap card stock as a base, I made a fold out for more pics and those cool journal cards. I added a few paint rings and sequins (for that royal touch). I like how there is a scrapbook on a page of scrapbooking!!

Crop- closed 

Crop- open to show more!

And one of the happy accidents that I simply adore is cutting out crowns and using them as journal strips to write names on, because we all want to be Queens of the CROP!

Slam Dunk!

My son played basketball a couple seasons. This is not his calling in life! But we got picture so of course, had to scrap them. This was a beginning league, so they didn't keep score. Best that way. ;) Here is my son and his team photo. The team lost most every game I think!! ;) And here is the medal he got to show for it. LOL.

I used MOXXIE's new Basketball line. It's perfect for b-ball pics.
Go team.

Blog Hop- MOXXIE new lines

Thanks so much for joining us for Moxxie's 2015 Winter Release Hop!
We are SO excited to share all of these fabulous NEW lines with you!!

Here is what I did with the new Winery Line. Did I mention that I work at Cinnabar Winery? And LOVE to go wine tasting with friends. Here are some friends from college (20 years ago) getting together for wine tasting. The warmth of the line is awesome! The barrel board paper is awesome and the burgundy color is my fav! To give that mud look, I used gesso and brown paint and just blotted it on in a random fashion. Then added some black paint to darken it and added a bit more.
What can you create from grapes...I mean from this MOXXIE Winery line

Merry Music with MOXXIE

HaPPY HOliDays and MeRRy ChristMas.

These pics are of my sister and her family on Christmas morning. They are a very musical family. Hubby teaches music to minors and leads the worship team at church. A couple of her kids have toured the world in choirs and all know an instrument or 5. These joyful Christmas pics of the family playing music together just called for a wonderfully music line like MOXXIE's Musically Inclined. The colors are both cool and warm and really sing! A bit of tearing and inking added just the right roughness to the formality of the beautiful papers.

You can buy it online at scrapbook.com or ask your local scrapbook store.

Kindergarten Memories with MOXXIE

My boys are growing up and it is so apparent when I scrap pages from a few years ago (Is any scrapper ever caught up?!?). Here is my baby on his first day of Kindergarten. I used a combination of the current BRAINIAC School Moxxie line with the earlier School Zone Moxxie line. I adore how the colors are the same so they mix and match perfectly. They took a great line and built on it to make it fuller.
I used the School Zone "Eleventh" for the background and Brainiac "Make the Grade," "Bookworm," and "Brainiac Stickers."

And see that cute owl die cut? That was a RAK from Design Team member Renee Robbins. So cute!
Now let's see your school pics cropped with a MOXXIE school line!

Wizardry by MOXXIE

After Halloween, I'm anxious to scrap those pictures of costumes from the past. One year, my son was in love with all things Harry Potter. So for his Christmas present, we went to Orlando Florida's Universal Studios to the "Wizarding World of Harry Potter."

Moxxie has papers for that! The WIZARDY line is so warm and dark and fun.

This double page spread uses both the themed paper and stickers. 
The first page is my boys entering the "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" which is awesomely realistic to the movie and page two is us eating authentic English vitals at Hogsmeade restaurant complete with Butter Beer. 

This line can still be purchases online. 
and plenty of other online sites
or ask at your local scrapbook store if they carry Moxxie.
