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.

Thanksgiving Dinner Place Cards

Countryside Comfort is perfect for Thanksgiving table favours with the rich fall colours featured in both the traditional and digital collections.

I don’t just use my digital content for scrapbook pages.  It can be incorporated into so many areas of my life!  For today’s project I used digital content and traditional products to create table place cards for Thanksgiving dinner for our family.

Lost In A Digital World

A few weeks ago upon arriving home for work, I did what I normally do-check the mailbox (of course, hoping that I got that check from Ed McMahon and Publisher’s Clearing House).  It wasn’t there, but our small local newspaper was.

The Sauk Rapids Herald.

I perused it, looking at the local police happenings (small town) and outcome of our beloved “Storm” sports teams.

As I was reading there was a certain article that struck a chord with me.  I can relate to the thousands of undeveloped photographs in my phone, how about you?

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.

Toil & Trouble Digital Scrapbook Layouts

Growing up I have to admit Halloween was not my favourite time of year, but after having children that has changed!  I love helping them figure out their costumes, carving pumpkins and decorating for Halloween.  We usually try to be creative and make our costumes ourselves.  Who knew I would actually be sad that I have only one Trick or Treater left in the house now!

The fall is my favourite time of year for photos as I love the oranges, reds and yellows of the season.  So creating Halloween pages is fun for me because I have lots of photos to choose from and Toil & Trouble to play design with!

Countryside Comfort Scrapbooking Borders

Moving into a new home in a new city a few weeks ago, I was really excited, but I felt a bit out of my element, a little anxious. Stacks of boxes from floor to ceiling, furniture that didn’t fit the same way it did in our last home…it was overwhelming.

But little by little, one box at a time, one room at a time, our new house is taking shape. I’ve been appreciating the cozy nooks I’ve discovered, the way a framed picture looks in just the right spot…it feels like home. And my anxiousness is giving way to contentment.
