Scrapping the Little Things with MCT

Today we are Scrapping the Little Things over at the My Creative Time blog.  


Today I have a SMASH book page to share with you about one of my favorite hobbies......other than paper crafting of course!!  Now if you remember, the SMASH album that I have started is one about me because I rarely, if ever scrapbook about myself.  I wanted something that my kids could have and pass on about my life.
I learned how to crochet from my grandmother and I hope to be able to pass it on to my own kiddos  Next to the title, which is created with the Label Font and Lowercase Fun Dies, I added a bit of crocheted Solid Natural bakers twine from The Twinery.

I also added some journaling under the picture on the first page about what I remember when I first was learning how to crochet.  I used the journaling prompt from the Things I Love stamp set.......

I also used two of the Stitched Doily die cuts on these under the corner of the picture on the first page and the second is cut in half and used under the edges of the pictures on the second pages....I also added a little bit of journaling to them telling about the pictures......

I hope that you are inspired to pull out a scrapbook page or SMASH album and start documenting things about yourself.  Hop on over to the My Creative Time blog to check out what the other designers have been Scrappin' about!!



  1. Oh my what an awesome LO. You outdid yourself here. What a great thing to do to pass on to your children it is important to do this and will definitely be a cherished & prized possession. I loved each and every little thing that you did and used to create your pages you truly did a magnificent job!!

  2. What a great idea! I really like this book Amy. You're right! People do scrapbooks of their children, but what do our children know of us before we became a parent!! You've given me something to think about my friend! xxx

  3. Fab LO. The one thing that I don't do is crochet. Great idea to capture a it!

  4. Great idea Amy, I agree with Viv. I recently purchased a project life kit and thought I would continue scrapbooking my daughters school years as well as other things. I don't have one about me and I think it's a great idea. Crochet is my second love, my mom taught me when I was just a kid as well. So thank you Amy and thank you Viv.


  5. I like the idea of a scrapbook about yourself. Adding the little piece of crochet work is perfect and I like the picture of you. I like the doilies for your journaling. I learned to knit at age 5 and to crochet a little later at maybe 10 and learned to quilt at about 16. Learning to sew from patterns to make clothes was learned at school. Yes, I like this idea! Great job :D
