Fun Study Buddies Scrapbooking Collection Bookmarks

Do you keep bookmarks handy when you’re reading a book? My husband reads a lot and keeps plenty of bookmarks laying around. Me? I use whatever is handy. Torn pieces of paper, store receipts, post-it-notes …. even unused Kleenex tissues – anything flat enough to mark my space in whatever book I’m reading.

A Year to Remember Cards & Envelope Tutorial

I am a frugal crafter… to the extreme. I don’t like throwing out scraps of cardstock or designer paper and nothing makes me happier than maximising the supplies I have.

Personalising Graduation Pages with School Colours

Our new Achievements Collection provides the perfect neutral background for almost any photo. The black, white and grey hues are beautiful alone but also compliment any other colour that you may wish to add.  To personalise your graduation pages, simply add cardstock and ABC/123 Letters in your school colour(s).  Use your solid cardstock to mat your photos or to add a simple paper strip or a border made with our new Crown Border Maker Cartridge.  Or use your school colours to make a preppy argyle border to add a collegiate look to a page.  The additional colour will make your pages pop!

Virtual Crop: Challenge 4 – Creative Journalling

Hey!

Oh my gosh–I love that I get to spend my day in my PJ’s!  But, even more than that I love that I am getting to spend the day with all of YOU! It is YOU that inspires ME!

The wheels are always turning! Chocolate always helps too!  I have my home-made vegan chocolate right here!  What is your chocolate treat of choice?

CHALLENGE #4:  Creative Journalling.  Add journalling to your scrapbook layouts in a unique and creative way.  It is always so important to journal.  Keeping your memories alive isn’t just about the photos, but the story behind them, and unless you write them down–they get lost.

Virtual Crop: Challenge 3-A Day In My Life

How are you all doing?  We love seeing all the projects that you are posting on the Facebook event page!  Keep them coming!

Have you ever taken the time to document YOUR life?  We spend a lot of time making sure our children’s, pets, grandparents’ lives are all documented, but rarely do we ever think about documenting our own.

So, take a few minutes, and think about what you do each and every day, and how you want your family and friends to see you “at a glance”.

Challenge #3:  Create a layout about a “Day in the Life”—of YOU!  When you have your layout completed, make sure to take a photo and submit it on the Facebook event page to qualify for the door prizes.
