Holiday Moments with the Imagine Collection

Hello everyone. Today, I am back with another layout using the Imagine Collection. I can’t get enough of this collection. It’s such a fun collection and I just love the colours and all the stickers!

At Christmas time, Edward begged me to put the tree up. I was tired so I told him he was totally decorating the tree. All I did was pull the ornaments out for him and he went to town! I really thought he’d get tired of decorating the tree after a few ornaments, but he surprised me… He decorated the entire tree! It was a nice break for me! Ha.

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?”.

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.

Easy Steps to Design an Album

Imagine-Fast2Fab-Album-Creative-Memories-Header

With the New Year upon us, it is time to start thinking out of the box! With traditional scrapbooking there is lots of creativity and fun!  What if we simplified things to get an extra album or two created in 2018?

I love the Fast2Fab™ albums for just that reason.  For that vacation or gift album that would be impossible to do along with my chronological albums so, I turn to the Fast2Fab™ albums!

My Little Artist

Hello everybody! I am back with a layout I created using the Bookworm Designer Papers, embellishments and stickers. What a cute collection to scrapbook those school memories!

Every time my son comes home from school with a fun art project, I get excited. I love looking through his artwork and the one thing I can always count on while looking at his work, is that his little creatures are ALWAYS happy. This makes my heart happy. It just goes to show that he’s happy inside and out most days. And he’s so creative too.

I love that he enjoys simple things such as painting, drawing and colouring. He will spend hours at the kitchen table, making pictures for his classmates. He is thoughtful like that.
