Here I am…a girl who dreams about paper and what to do with it!


I love taking photos and I love paper so…naturally I love to scrapbook.

I teach some scrapbooking classes at a store in Paradise, CA called “Paradise Scrapbook Boutique

I love it there…I feel so inspired each time I walk through the door. I was lucky enough to tag a long to CHA in Orange County with Karen (the owner of PSB) and her sister Deb. It was my first time to CHA ever and OH BABY it was so fun! I came right home and started working on my new class…check it out:


I picked up some Easter paper today and worked on some projects with my kids, we made cute little paper-covered eggs…the egg probably would have been really cute if I would have used mod podge!
I am going to be starting my own website “Prettypaperbook.com” where I will be selling hand-made albums (mostly 6×6, 8×8 and shaped albums). I’m excited to get it up and running.

My husband (computer genius that he is) and his designer friends are still working on how the site will look…I think they’re really just buying me time to make more albums. Hopefully it will be up and running by the first week in March! Keep your finger’s crossed!

    CHRISTIE! This is terrific, just as you are. I too, believe that your ability to photograph and write diligently and beautifully (even in all caps, lower case, bubbles. etc.- all on my wall in my office) is cherished and inspiring. Although I save all your work, it will never get it’s own blog…GO GRANDMA CRABTREE!

    Christie – I adore your blog already and have been wanting to comment since the day you put it up (my pw from WordPress just came – woo hoo!). The cool thing is, it’s going to be “instant inspiration” every time I check your blog, I just know it. 🙂
