Hello Scrapland! We know that this post will probably be read by no one, but it will be in our archives if anyone wants to read our introduction. First and foremost, yes there are two of us running this blog! We are REALLY good friends who met in North Carolina when Alice’s husband and Katie were both stationed there. We happened to move into a couple of condos right next to each other and have kids within a couple of months of each other. As soon as our boys became old enough to play with toys and such (and Katie got out of the military to become a SAHM), we quickly found each other’s friendship to be fun and essential. We spent almost all day everyday together letting the boys play with each other, finding fun excursions to go on, and of course SCRAPPING! Katie was a paper scrapper but Alice really liked to use the computer to make photo creations. Alice would scan in papers and stickers and such for her to digi scrap with and then give the stuff to Katie to use for her paper scrapping. That is, until we found the digi scrapping world full of high resolution supplies that were ready to use! Now we are both highly addicted to digital scrapbooking, with no end in sight!

Both of our husbands are still in the military- Katie’s in the Marine Corps and Alice’s in the Coast Guard, but our friendship is thriving because of the internet! We live a thousand miles apart but it’s almost like we still live right on the other side of the wall from each other except that our children can’t play together anymore. That’s pretty much why we decided to start this blog together. We consult with each other on and help each other with everything, it would be silly for us to have two separate blogs. Everything you will find on this blog was truly created by BOTH Alice and Katie.

We have so many ideas for things we want to put out, but we are beginners and we don’t have all the time in the world. But, we will be trying really hard to hone our talents and get things put together to share with everyone. We hope there are people out there who will benefit from our two brains and hard work and zaniness and we’ll see you back here with some freebies!


  1. Well I hate to tell you but I did read your post and find it great that you two have found such a great friendship. Great friendships are hard to find and only come along a few times during a lifetime. I am a SAHD due to a severe disability and just wanted to let you know that you have a great Blog so far. The colors that you are using are fantastic and I have downloaded what you have to offer so far. I see what you have done so far as having many possibilities in a variety of photo situations and that is greatly appreciated. Just to let you know I can only sit for short periods of time and I will be one of those folks that download but doesn't leave comments all the time. Mostly because I can't type so well on that day and can only sit for a few minutes at a time. Today is a better day so I thought I would leave a comment for you all. Keep up the fantastic work and thank you for sharing you God given talents with so many people!

  2. I LOVE YOUR kit Kinda Springy-the names of the papers are great!!! How would I upload a couple of quick pages I did using it?
