Power Sort Box and Power Layouts Kit and Super Organized

I am guilty of not being the most organized person in the world, my house can be a bit cluttered, but my photos are organized!  If you asked me for a photo of a specific event I can put my hand on that quite quickly!  I love the Power Sort Box for my photos, but it is also very handy when organizing scrapbooking supplies.

Birthday Traditions

Hello creators! I am back with a birthday layout I created using the Sugarplum Designer Paper Pack, Designer Stickers, Variety Mat Pack, and Embellishments. Every year, no matter how old I get, my mommy makes me a birthday cake. Sometimes, we don’t get to celebrate my birthday with the family until the end of September, but that’s OK! I don’t know many people who would decline two birthday celebrations in one year. Do you? 🙂

Since Edward was a year old, he’s been helping me blow my birthday candles out. Mom has taken a picture of the two of us blowing out my birthday candles together for the past 7 years. I love this tradition… This year, Edward was really excited because he helped make the cake and he requested Oreos and pink sprinkles to decorate the cake with exactly 39 miniature Oreos.

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.

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?

World Card Making Day

Today is the day that we celebrate cards!

Making cards can be so rewarding.  It not only fulfills a creative void, but also puts smiles on the faces of those who receive such beautiful pieces of creativeness.

Cards do not have to be a work of art, but rather a work of heart.

We would love to help with your card-making.  A simple sketch is sometimes all one needs to get the creative juices flowing.
