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.

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.

Sun-Kissed Slice of Summer Layout

Summer will soon be coming to an abrupt end.  It means floating in the pool one last time, or splashing in the lake.  It means soaking up as much sun as you possibly can before the long winter hits.

Make sure that you remember to document all the summer’s memories–before it is gone.  Did you take a vacation to the ocean?  Or maybe just a weekend away to the cabin?  Whatever it was, make sure you have it in your scrapbooks for years to come!
