Quick 6 Cards – Croptoberfest 2018

I’ve done a couple “Quick 6” card posts in the past year, and I wanted to share how I used this design with my Croptoberfest materials this year! We’ll be using these as a make-and-take at my Croptoberfest event on October 12 & 13 in West Valley, Utah. If you’re in the area I’d love to have you come make these and some other fun projects with us!

(If you haven’t seen the previous Quick 6 posts yet, you’ll want to check out the original post with the cutting guides and also see how different these cards look with the Black & White collection.)

Bonus Cards from the Sending Love Kit

From the August product release, I’m especially excited about the new All That Glitters Card Kit (I’ve ordered some that will be arriving tomorrow–YAY!) and its 170+ EXTRA PIECES because I TOTALLY LOVE creating more from the great kits Creative Memories sells. As I was thinking of that earlier this week, I realized I hadn’t yet used my extras from the Sending Love Card Kit, even though I made those cards when they first came out several months ago. PROJECT INSPIRATION!!!

After humming and hawing over all the bits and pieces for a while I put together these six cards, and I’m loving the way they turned out! Continue reading

Happy Album: Extra Pages from Kits 1 & 2

This week I wanted to show you what I’m doing with borders and more in my Happy Album, along with a couple of helpful tips for using the border maker system!

After I made the pages from Happy Album Kits #1 and #2 (with slight modification to give me maximum leftovers, of course), I was able to make 3 extra 2-page spreads from the extra pieces:

  1. Half-and-half “wallpapered” spread with a “Family” border crossing both pages
  2. “Me & You” spread with two different types of borders
  3. Hearts and dots spread

10 Questions for Kids this Summer 2018

This is a GREAT collection to hand over to kids of any age and let them create their own albums! I’ve put together 10 questions to help you and your kids get started on a Super Duper summer album, as well as an album planner that includes the questions, pictures to include on each topic, and the layout they would go with in the F2F album.

If you have a preschool, daycare, or kids camp, you could also use this as a special project for your class or group!

11 Borders with Creative Memories’ Double Chevron

It’s another delightful #BorderMakerMonday, and I have some tips for the Double Chevron cartridge for you today!

I love this cartridge with the CM Border Maker System – it’s one that punches along the edge of your page (as opposed to those cartridges that punch a chain or strip away from the page), and I wanted to show a bunch of the designs you can make with it. I’d love to see you run with it in some of your own borders! Continue reading
