Do you have kids home for summer? Or would you love to host a craft party for your favorite kiddos? The Super Duper collection is perfect for you and your little friends!!
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!
Oh. My. Gosh. (or, as my 3-year-old niece would have said, “Oh my dosh!”) The Sun-Kissed collection is coming on Monday, and I’m taking pre-orders for it now because I know this one will be a huge hit! This collection … Continue reading →
I hope you saw my previous blog post, where I introduced “Quick 6” cards back in September. If not, you can check it out and compare how the same technique produces some very different looks when applied to different paper and embellishments!
This time I made 6 quick cards with the new Black & White papers, coordinating flower and gem embellishments, and a few words from the Imagine laser cut weird pack. Again, you can use any double-sided papers for a project like this, and I’d love to see how yours turn out with other combinations!
I hope you’re enjoying our Winter Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Julie’s blog, but if you’re hopping out of order you can see all the links at the bottom of this post
January is a busy month for me, and this year I’ve made a goal to keep an updated, current annual family album. It’s just me and hubby, so we don’t have a lot of “family” photos . . . ok, I’ll be honest, it mostly just about me. 🙂 I’ll be honest and say it was a little bit of a struggle to remember to take pictures of the normal day-to-day things happening this month and remember to print them!
I’m using the Creative Memories My Memories Gift Box Bundle as the basis for my album this year. It’s perfect for monthly layouts, and I love the fun patterns and earthy colors. I’ll be creating a 2-page layout each month in this album this year.
Thanks for joining our Fall Blog Hop! It’s my favorite time of year, with all the leaves, crisp air, and sweaters – And this year to go along with all of that I’m loving the rich fall colors and the combinations of classic, rustic patterns in Creative Memories’ Countryside Comfort line!
I’m sharing some Countryside Comfort layouts that I started last week during the Creative Memories Virtual Crop on Facebook. If you haven’t done a virtual crop yet, I highly recommend it! Creative Memories hosts several each year, and the Creative Life Scrapbooking group has hosted a couple more so far. Continue reading →
This month, the Creative Life Scrapbooking team decided to take Creative Scrapbooker magazine’s Sketchy Challenge and make layouts based on this circle layout sketch, but with a twist: stash busting only! All of us have lots of older scrapbooking supplies, and sometimes we need some motivation to use that instead of the brand-newest stuff. 🙂
TBH, when I first saw this sketch I was like, “What am I going to do with this?!?” It was way outside my normal scrappy comfort zone! I tried one layout that I totally hated (maybe I’ll post that as a blooper sometime), and I almost gave up.
But then I was struck with inspiration one day as I gathered a bunch of wedding announcements off my fridge and realized that the three photos from those announcements would be perfect for this layout! Once I had that thought, I LOVED the process of creating this page! (And while I was journaling on the page, I even got teary-eyed because the people on this page are so special to me, so clearly this was an important story for me.)
You are very, extremely, and cordially invited to attend my Croptoberfest 2017 events!
Um, wait . . . events?!?
YES! This year I’m doing Croptoberfest different. Instead of a single, long day of scrapbooking this year I’m hosting 4 separate days of scrapbooking, reconnecting with cropping friends, sharing ideas, getting gifts and prizes, etc. Each day is broken into two sessions, and everyone is invited to join for as few or as many of the Croptoberfest sessions as they’d like. Each session will have different gifts, ideas, challenges, and prizes. All sessions will be held at my home in Bountiful, Utah, and each session has just 6 seats.
Additionally, each day between the two sessions, I’ll also have a paper buffet open to everyone, not just people attending the sessions!
Have you seen the Creative Life Scrapbooking Border Maker Mondays ideas? If not, you should definitely go check them out on the Facebook page! Each week one of the contributors shares ideas for scrappy borders, layouts, cards, or other projects that feature the Creative Memories Border Maker System and other Border Punches.
This week, my contribution to the collection is these two adorable underwater borders that both use similar elements but definitely have a different feel to them!
