I've got another tried and true tool for easy money!  It's called Swagbucks and it's simple to use.

What Is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is a search engine which rewards you with Swagbucks for searching. You can use it just like Google for searching and you will be randomly awarded Swagbucks for searching, usually around five to 10 Swagbucks once or twice each day.
These Swagbucks can then be redeemed for a variety of different free items, such as Amazon gift cards, Starbucks gift cards and much more.
While Swagbucks started out as solely a search engine, over the past few years, they’ve morphed into much more. In fact, they now offer many different ways to earn more Swagbucks making it much easier to earn enough Swagbucks to cash in on their prizes.

How Do I Sign Up For Swagbucks?

It’s very simple. Just fill out the form here.

Does It Really Work?

Yes! I’ve earned many Amazon gift cards (since I love Amazon, but there are many more choices) since I’ve been using them for the last few years. 
Here's how to make the most of your Swagbucks:

1. Install the Swagbucks Toolbar

You can conduct internet searches directly on the Swagbucks homepage. Or, you can make it much easier and just install the Swagbucks toolbar. When you want to search for something, you can just go to the Swagbucks toolbar and search without having to open up the Swagbucks homepage.
You’ll sometimes receive notifications of free Swagbucks codes in the toolbar which you can enter on the homepage of your Swagbucks account in order to add free bonus points to your account.

2. Follow the Swagbucks Blog

If you’re not following the Swagbucks blog, you’re missing out on many opportunities to snag free Swagbucks codes. They have been releasing at least one free code almost every day andyou’ll be in the know about giveaways they are running and everything that’s new at Swagbucks.

3. Bookmark Pages You Visit Everyday

If you have sites that you visit every day (such as Twitter, Facebook, etc.), search for those on Swagbucks and then bookmark the results page. Go to the bookmarked results page every day instead of going directly to the site and it will instantly re-search for the page and you’ll likely rack up quite a few Swagbucks each week by doing this.

Dandelion Fairy

I love the color accents of these photos so I used them for an overall theme for the page. I l ove the way it turned out!


As you know, I love to use up as many of my scraps from my DT kits as possible. This layout was made using those scraps from an old Hip 2b Square kit.

My Favorite Things

I love the color scheme of this layout. It is about my top 10 favorite things! Made with some awesome Collage Press papers!!

Payton's Playlist

As you can tell, I took a few months off to enjoy my new baby boy, Grayden. I have missed scrapbooking and my design teams terribly! I am now armed with hundreds of photos and can't wait to start scrapping again!

For this layout, I used Prima watercolor paper. I used my paints to paint in the accents. I threw in a few of my favorite things and created this layout.
