... glad I wrote it down.

Just a few pages to share today that will go into the various scrapbooks. Speaking of scrapbooks ... what kind do you use? Like, to actually hold your pages?
For the past two years or so, I have been using binders. Not even scrapbooking binders ... just pretty binders that I find at random places. My very favorite ones are Greenroom Eco binders from Target. I just buy a few packs of 8.5 x 11 page protectors once in awhile, and fill up the binders until there's no room left. And then I get to shop for new binders. :)
Anyway, here's a few recent pages. I wanted to use some of my favorite photos from last summer, like this one of Lo wearing her red Converse.
And these, from the Iowa State Fair last August.
Then, one more page using Twitter updates from one random day last month. I love using Twitter as a jump start. This was from the day that Corey Haim died; I watched Kill Bill on tv, talked about Ralph Macchio and listened to the new Hole album. Tiny insignificant parts of life put on paper. (But I know that someday I'll look at this page, all of these pages, and be glad I wrote it down.)


  1. I love your binders! E-v-e-r-y s-i-n-g-l-e o-n-e! Aww!

  2. loving those binders.
    you so make me wish i scrapped 8.5 X 11 all the time!

    oh and I use American Crafts D-Ring albums. they rock. and the 12 X 12 ones are the perfect size for record albums (as the cover).

  3. I'm so glad you posted this, I've been buying those binders because I think they are cute but I don't scrap & wouldn't have thought to use them for it...now I think I might have to try!

  4. you know... i walk past pretty binders like that all the time and think "i love it but what would i do with it?... hmmmmm." now i know.
    definitely makes me want to scrap 8.5 x 11 or smaller, which is what i started out doing but now i can only seem to scrap 12x12. dang it.

    hi! :)

  5. You will be very glad indeed. :)oo

  6. awesome!
    most of my stuff right now is 12x12, so american crafts d ring albums mostly. but i need to step out of that square and into your size. it would make hybrid scrapping so much easier too.
    great layouts :)

  7. Love your idea of using Twitter updates as journaling, how didn't I think of it?

    I also do 8.5x11 rather than 12x12, I still have an American Crafts binder to fill though! :)

    Have a good weekend!


    omg. jen. you are wonderful.
    why didn't i even think of that.

    i miss playing scrappyinspiration with youuuu.

  9. love those pages Jen! And all the cool binders-what an smart idea!
