2013 Team Intro Blog Hop

Hi! My name is Kelly Holbrook, and I'm from Homer, MI.  I am 33 years old, have been married for 12 years, and have 5 awesome kids.  I am a stay at home mom, but I also homeschool 3 of  my 5 kids.  When I am not busy with that or scrapbooking, I also enjoy knitting, running, and photography.  I have been scrapbooking since 1998, and a MemoryWorks Consultant since 2006.  I would describe my scrapbooking style as Clean Lines/Eclectic.  I scrap 8.5 x 11, and I usually like to include at least 2 photos per page.  My go to supplies are tools, my favorites being punches, and embossing folders.  My favorite MemoryWorks brands are Lily Bee Design, Jenni Bowlin, and Simple Stories.  This is my 3rd year as a TeamWorks member, and I'm super excited about 2013!

Happy New Year!  Welcome to the 2013 Team-Works Intro Blog promises to be another great year! If you are just joining us, be sure to go back and start at the MemoryWorks Blog....and if you get lost along the way, there is a Blog Hop Map at the end of this post. If you're right where you need to be, then I am excited to share with you some of my projects using some Simple Stories, and Lily Bee Design products.

You are Beautiful to me:

Simple Stories Fab{U}lous collection

Beautiful Girl:

Simiple Stories Fab{U}lous collection
Both of the previous layouts were done in under 15 minutes.  I love how the Simple Stories lines make it so easy to layer things together quickly, yet still have eye catching results...and with so many quick title options.


Lily Bee Design Allspice collection
I used the 6x6 paper pad  for this card. LOVE 6x6 pads :)

2.5 inch Office Binder:

Lily Bee Design Allspice collection
I make a lot of to save money, I always alter binders. Not only is it cheaper, but it also make them more personalized. It is also the main reason why I scrap 8.5x11.

That's it, I hope you enjoy meeting the rest of the team...

...and you're off to Cathie's blog!

Love your layout and binder project...I have often thought of switching to 8.5 x 11 instead of 12 x 12. Maybe I should make that a new years resolution and try something new for 2013!

I was really inspired to see your altered binder and the concept of scrapping 8 1/2 x 11 to make it super easy and thrifty is wonderful! I wish I could have met you oh about 22 years ago when I started scrapping...I have a big family too so it would help. Looking forward to more from you!

Looks like a lot of us were inspired by the Fabulous line . I loved seeing 8 1/2 by 11 LOs again. Your work is marvelous!

Lindsay said...
