Make it a Happy Day– With Slice of Summer

Why is it that summer comes and goes SO FAST?

One of my all time favourite things about summer is enjoying a nice big slice of watermelon!  It just speaks SUMMER!  And, every single child loves to indulge in it as well. So, before January ends, we had to make sure to capture these precious moments.

How to Create the Bee Mine Arrow Border Layout

Scrapbook papers and embellishments have personalities, and Bee Mine is energizing! If you’ve been feeling a little rundown after the hustle and bustle of the holidays, get your hands on the Bee Mine collection and you’ll feel ready to create an entire album. When Melissa designed this fun Arrow Border Layout, I had to give it a try. I loved the way that she used three different colours of cardstock behind each arrow in the border design.

A Journey To The Outback

Our family has a passion for visiting off-the-beaten-track locations in the Australian outback. We love to getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, get amongst nature and live the simple life. And, when we get home, I love to document our adventures in my Creative Memories Albums so the kids (and us too) will remember these special trips in years to come.

Loving the Bee Mine Collection

Hi everyone. I am back with another layout featuring the Bee Mine collection. For those of you who do not know me, I LOVE patterned paper. Often at times, I have a difficult time throwing my scraps away for this reason. For this layout, I decided to play with all of the patterns in the Bee Mine collection.

Where does time go?

It is so hard to believe that we are talking about sending the littles (or bigs in my case) back to school already.  Where does the time go?

Make sure you capture all of the special moments when you are sending them back to learn.  Their grade, the books they like to read, their teacher, their shoe size, their favourite colour, etc.

The Bookworm Collection is a fabulous pairing to any layout related to school.

The Brainiac with Bookworm

How exciting!!!  A collection for all of your school memories.

As you may remember, I am new to the scrapbooking part of papercrafting.  I have a pile of my kids’ school memories that need to get into books.  I am not overwhelmed by the process. I figure I will let the paper “speak” to me.  That is exactly what this Bookworm Collection did to me.  It spoke to me when picking a photo.  My daughter spoke to me as well!  When I showed her the picture that I decided on she said, “really Mom, you couldn’t have picked another picture that made me look less dorky?”.

Bee Mine Valentine Scrapbook Layout

Bee-Mine-Valentine-Scrapbook-Layout-Creative-Memories

Valentine’s Day is coming and Creative Memories has the cutest collection to document those lovey dovey or not so lovey dovey moments! Have you seen the Bee Mine collection? Oh, my goodness, it is the cutest collection ever and I am so excited I got to play with it. I really like the tiny print patterns on a few of the papers so I selected a few of those sheets for my layout. And the stickers and layered embellishments are gorgeous! A girl can never have too many embellishments. Those frames were calling my name the moment I saw them! I couldn’t wait to use them. Can you hear the excitement in my words? Seriously, I love it.

Making Plans

Hi, everyone. I have been making plans for the start of the school year using the Bookworm Stickers and Embellishments. It’s hard to believe that school starts in just a few weeks and I am starting to stress, just a little… My nights are about to get even crazier, not that isn’t already crazy. As I am typing this post, I am wondering if I’ll have any time to scrap in the summer with homework, soccer games, and school events. I guess I’ll enjoy it while it last.

The stickers in this collection are adorable so naturally, for my planner, I used several stickers with a few die cuts. I used my Black Dual-Tip Pen to record my plans for the month.

Back To The Books

Getting back to school is not my favourite time of year as I love having the children around the house without the busy school schedules, but once they are back we work into the schedule quickly.  I do love taking back to school photos though!

I few years ago I started taking a photo on the first day of school and the last day of school on the front step to show the difference in the children throughout their school year.  They always mature quite a bit through the school year, but the biggest difference is their growth.  I love the Bookworm digital kit with all of the school related embellishments, but what I really love is the colours as they are muted primary colours.
