Jeanine of Page.One is the guest designer at all July


Jeanine of Page.One is the guest designer at Pixelpress for the entire month of July. What a treat for us as she is one talented designer.  Check out Light and Breezy, a collaborative effort of Jopke and Page.One.  It is a a truly cheerful and summery kit, born with bright blues, yellows and some neutral tones of sand. In this kit you will find 12 gorgeous papers, all sized 12x12", with textures and patterns. Then a pack of 39 elements will complete the whole. Included are shells, ice cream, bird, hearts, net, splatters, ribbons, word art and much more. You sure will make your summer photos come alive again with this kit.


I made two pages with this great collaboration.



Happy July.

80 Words per Minute (or so)

Journaling: Mom was the perfect secretary. She attended Burroughs Business School in Omaha, Nebraska and was a week from graduating when she was offered a job at Northwestern Bell Telephone Company. Jobs were scarce in 1939, so she went to work. After scoring 100% on the entry exam, she received $65.00 dollars per month working in the payroll department. This was five dollars over scale due to her perfect score on the exam!fonts- 1942 Report, Courier

80 Words per Minute

I used Jady Day Studio My Life & Story: an Autobiography Kit ScrapMatters, for this page.


Thanks for stopping by.

More in the Store Monday 6/26–Americana by Carina Gardner

The 4th of July is coming up in a week –the year is half over-UNBELIEVABLE!! For the occasion I made a patriotic card using Carina Gardner’s Americana.  The kit is at its patriotic best with lots of reds, whites, and blues, stars, stripes, and flags. I just love the little houses she included.  Check out Carina’s store at Jessica  for this and other fabulous products.  You will be glad you did.


Here is the card.  It is already in the mail.  I wonder who gets it!!!???

Happy 4th of July

On a Disney Kick

Last fall we went to Disneyland and had a wonderful time, but I have not made the pages.  Perhaps sorting the 1500 photos was too daunting of a task to get started.  Well this week I got busy and made a few Disney pages from kits I got at ScrapMatters. For the first two pages, I used My Magical Place by Haynay and Happy by Chelle’s Creations.

For the Parade page, Sahlin’s Enjoy the Moment was perfect kit.



Happy Scrapping.

I took part in a Jessica Speed scrap yesterday and made a page about my new camera. The speed scrap focused on your newest gadget. To make the page, I used  Liv–Click and iKari’s Alpha Bits-Stamped Chocolate.

Journaling: This little guy, the Sony Cybershot, is my newest attempt at finding a camera that will take pictures of grandkids on the go. I have my Nikon D90, which I use for most of my shots, but sometimes I need my “purse” camera. I still have the box on the counter, which tells you how new it is. It takes a nice still photo, but don’t they all! I will put it to the test today since my granddaughter has a baseball game at 3:00. Wish me luck.
