‘Tis The Season for Sugarplum Borders

The new Sugarplum collection is so whimsical and cheerful, it has me smiling today! Guess you could say I’ve got visions of Sugarplums dancing in my head. Time to play with these fun papers and adorable stickers and create some holiday borders!

The borders I’ve made will look great either added to the beautiful Sugarplum Fast2Fab pre-designed album pages or any other layout you have in mind. I’ve added a matching title or journal box to add to a double page spread, or they can be adapted to make a card.

Toil & Trouble Treat Bags

Boo!!  Can you believe it? The local stores are all set up for the trick or treaters, so I guess I need to start thinking ahead as well!  I thought I would make some special little treat bags for the young goblins that show up at my door.

The Toil & Trouble Collection is so bright!  I just love it! It’s perfect to get you thinking ahead to Halloween.

Mini Album = Mega Smiles!

What to send in a care package to a niece who’s away at college? Well, homemade cookies and candy, of course! But to personalize it a bit, I found some favorite 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.

Fancy Up Your Countryside Comfort Fast2Fabulous

Fast2Fab Albums have quickly become my favorite way to scrapbook! I love how quickly and easily the pages come together, helping me stay caught up on my projects. Plus, with the matching papers and embellishments, I can add a little personalization and flexibility to the printed pages. Sometimes I’ll keep it super simple with just my photos and journaling; other times I’ll have more fun with it, adding borders, titles and stickers to spice it up.

I Love This! Sugarplum Variety Mat Pack for the WIN!

I LOVE me a few mats from any variety mat pack, but especially this one.  The soft gorgeous colors of Sugarplum work fabulous for a simple 12″ x 12″ layout, not just the slide-in pages.  I used a total of 7 mats on this layout.  A few of which I cut off, and can be used on future layouts.  Just play around with them to decide which orientation you might want them, and how many photos you might have to add to your layout.

Love Moments Today

When I am documenting my memories, I love to capture everyday moments.  A walk in the woods with my son, having coffee with a friend, having a snowball fight with my husband, or watching my sweet newborn nephew sleep.

Don’t let these moments pass you by.  These are the moments that make up our lives.  We couldn’t possibly celebrate BIG holiday’s everyday, but we can make the little moments the BIG ones.

Simple Steps to a Completed 8×8 Album

The small, adorable size of the 8×8 album is perfect for gift albums, weekender albums and tribute albums. But sometimes adding another project on top of the regular family albums you’re already working on can seem a little daunting. Not anymore! Here’s a quick, easy way to make an 8×8 album using just a few supplies and tools of your choice!

I’ve used the Slice of Summer collection here, but you can use any collection of papers and stickers that suit your project. What will you use for yours?

Do not delay in getting your 8×8 Coversets, as they are only available a few times a year, and RIGHT NOW is one of those windows!

Not to worry though, the page refills are available all of the time.  So, this allows you to create the pages whenever you wish!

Sugarplum and Vellum Holiday Layout

Have you used vellum on a layout?

I love how it softens the layout, and gives it a frosted look.

I had some older photos that this frosted vellum was the perfect match for.

You can add the vellum as mats or even as a larger piece to soften the whole layout.
