Imagine Then & Now Family Fun Book

Imagine. Love. Dreams. Wish. Family. Moments.

The words in the Imagine Laser Cut Embellishments speak to me. They make me want to gather my family close and reminisce over photos and memories, old and new.

Poring over a bunch of old, seemingly random photos the other day got me thinking about how connected everything in my life really is. The circle of life and all that. How fun would it be to create a little coffee table book, connecting the old with the new, Then and Now? What if I could pull it out when the family is gathered and journal memories in it as the photos are talked about and stories are remembered?

12 Days of…

Throughout the year, we receive many requests to see layouts/ideas using a certain number of photos on the layout.  So, when we thought about what we would do for “12 Days” we decided it would be great to show you how to use 1-12 photos on a holiday themed layout.

Mini Album = Mega Smiles

What to send in a Christmas care package to a niece who’s interstate? Well, homemade cookies and candy, of course! But to personalise it a bit, I found some favourite photos of her, printed them at 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and matted some with Denim Blues paper to fill the pages of a Mini Album. I tucked in a little note of encouragement and a few gift cards. Finally, I accented the pages with Denim Blues Embellishments.

Lost In A Digital World

A few weeks ago upon arriving home for work, I did what I normally do-check the mailbox (of course, hoping that I got that check from Ed McMahon and Publisher’s Clearing House).  It wasn’t there, but our small local newspaper was.

I perused it, looking at the local police happenings (small town) and outcome of our beloved “Storm” sports teams.

As I was reading there was a certain article that struck a chord with me.  I can relate to the thousands of undeveloped photographs in my phone, how about you?
