Scrappy Share with American Crafts

Today is the first day of summer, and what better way to celebrate then to stay in and scrapbook the day away, LOL. I spent the majority of yesterday outside swimming, and soaking up the sun, so today I took the day off and am crafting away.  We are getting ready to head back to Washington State for four weeks to see family and friends and I am trying to wrap up a few crafty projects before we leave. We will be staying with my parents, and since my mom is a fellow crafter, I am bringing scrapbook stuff as well. 

I have a layout and card to share using American Crafts products. I used elements from the Mayberry and My Girl collection for the layout, and Ready Set Go for the card. I hope you like them.

Let's talk packing crafting supplies. Does anyone have any pointers for me? I am allowing myself one small carry-on for all of my scrapbooking, crafty items. Obviously the trimmer and scissors and other sharp tools will have to go in the larger suitcase under the plane, (don't want TSA to confiscate them.) Can you think of any other items that should also be checked? I really, REALLY do not want to argue with TSA about them keeping my scrapbooking tools, trust me, that would not be pretty. LOL. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Have a fabulous day!

Happy Scrappin,'




  1. what a fabulous LO, we hope to pick up some turtles while we are in Vanuatu.

    1. Thank you Caz, have fun on vacation.

  2. I especially like the card - cityscapes are always so cute.

    I think as long as you put all the sharp/pointy tools and any liquid glues or the like into your checked luggage you should be all right. The only issue I've ever had flying with scrapping supplies was that my punches caused my checked luggage bag to exceed the weight limitations so I had to change them over to my carry-on bag.

    1. Cindy, thank you so much for reminding me about liquid glue. Totally forgot about that!

  3. Love your cute card. What fun that your mother is crafty too!

    1. I am so excited, haven't seen her since December, my family is just amazing!

  4. That card is too cute! Love all the banner elements on your layout too
