When the mice are away... (page, sketch and video)

When the mice are away at the dream pinball destination, the cat will be shopping at a super scrapbooking store.  I shared my haul from two scrapbooking stores in Detroit a couple of months ago. Here is a page I did about this little part of our vacation.

Since I seldom get to shop in a brick and mortar scrapbooking store, I wanted to commemorate it with a brick background.  It was a great way to use 6x6 paper pads.  Except for my dress, there weren't a lot of specific colors to pull out so I just used happy bright colors.  These flowers from BasicGrey have been in my stash forever.

I didn't have any blue enamel dots.  The video below shares how I improvised.

On the trip, I picked up some Maya Road chipboard frames and used one to frame a small photo of the lobby of the shop.

For more on the project, check out the video at YouTube or here:

Here is the sketch for the 3 photo page:

It was such fun to shop where there was tons of new product and great customer service.  If I lived near Scrappy Chic my budget would be in real trouble- like it isn't already :-)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I like the idea of the bricks to mimic the store :)
    There is nothing like shopping in an actual store is there :)

  2. The brick background is awesome and couldn't be more perfect for your wonderful page, Lisa.

  3. I recognize that store! Good thing it is 30 minutes away, or I would be in serious trouble. Great page, love the background brick idea!

  4. This is a great layout! I love your attention to detail.
