Nothing says “Celebrate” more than cute party hats, right? And the new Party Hats Border Maker Cartridge, combined with one of our beautiful designer collections, takes the party to the next level!

Here, I’ve made some Party Time borders using both the bold, fun, colourful Cake My Day collection and the soft, warm and playful Woodland Whimsy collection. Two totally different takes, but the party hats all say “Celebrate”!

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.

Share your layout on the Facebook Event page to be eligible for door prizes!

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.
