On the surface, the Imagine That! collection looks like it’s meant for theme parks and superhero-themed projects. While it is a great collection for these things, it also works for a variety of other types of projects such as adventures, spring, summertime and more. Check out how blog contributor Nicole was able to use the collection to bring her family trip to the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument to life!
It’s no secret that the Pumpkin Spice collection can create projects that are a total Halloween haven. However, the autumn palette and gorgeous stickers make this a great choice for all sorts of layouts and themes. You can use it to bring all your ideas to life, including fall scrapbook projects, holiday layouts and, as blog contributor Glenda shows, layouts for a family trip! Check out Glenda’s masterpiece below!
A good scrapbook border is what separates a good layout from a great layout. It emphasises the theme of the layout, adds some extra colour and ties the page together as a whole. There are many different borders that you can make that work for a variety of themes by using your favourite CM products. Blog contributor Krislyn recently took on the Basics to Scrapbooking Border Recipe, and she realised just how easy it is to make these beautiful borders. Read on to learn how to create simple scrapbook borders!
In terms of holidays, none evokes as much nostalgia as Christmas. Everyone remembers how they spent Christmas growing up — they’re usually some of our fondest childhood memories. How you feel about Christmas may change a bit as you grow up (especially when you start buying the presents rather than receiving them), but the “true meaning” of Christmas is still there inside you. Today, let’s create a throwback Christmas scrapbook layout that brings back the classic look that makes you reminiscent of Christmas past with this layout created by blog contributor Wendy!
Do you have loads of summer memories full of fun and want to make a summer scrapbook that does them justice? As we enter the beginning of spring, now is the perfect time to plan some scrapbook layouts for summer that we’ve created and do a #ThrowbackThursday to re-create them! We’ve got one for you today that you’ll love… it’s a Slice of Summer layout that was featured on the blog in January, and this time we’ve created it using Sun-Kissed! So, as the sun starts to beat down and make the outdoors feel like the inside of an oven, you can keep cool in your craft room and revisit the layout to make one (or a few!) for all of the summer memories you’ll make.
Winter will soon be winding down, with school holidays on the horizon! The Essentials collection has everything you need to make a beautiful school layout that captures the essence of that first day of school like never before. In today’s post, check out blog contributor Mati’s back-to-school scrapbook ideas!
Many people like to grow flowers, shrubs and their own food or go out and pick fresh produce; some do it for the health benefits, others for affordability and some because they just enjoy the process! No matter what your reason is, if you enjoy gardening and picking fresh produce as much as you like you enjoy scrapbooking and being crafty, we’ve got two fun ways to combine the two hobbies! Blog contributor Kristin lays out two different produce-related projects that she likes taking on after she harvests the fruits of her labour, including a unique canning decoration and a beautiful berry picking project, which would also make a great gardening scrapbook layout. Check them out!
It’s #ThrowbackThursday here on the blog, and we’re traveling back to March of 2017 with a sketch challenge from a Virtual Crop! We asked one of our awesome blog contributors, Sarah, to use the sketch with the Full Bloom collection to create her version of it and give it her own spin. Ready to be inspired?
