Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and if you’ll be hosting a gathering for family or friends you might be looking for innovative ideas for table decorations to make your guests feel extra special. Well, we’ve got an adorably thoughtful (and useful!) idea you’ll fall head over heels for… Pockets Full of Love! This paper craft project was created by Canadian Advisor Tammy McEwen, who first made it as a welcome gift for customers attending one of her events, and then infused it into a layout to hold pictures!
You can make these hearts for layouts, to give to family members who come by your house this holiday season (put mints in them and place them on your guests’ plates!), fill them with small treats or gifts for your child’s teacher, slip them into Christmas stockings or anything else you can come up with. Read on to find out how to make this heart scrapbook paper project, plus get step-by-step instructions for creating Tammy’s layout and get bonus ideas for using Pockets Full of Love from other CM Advisors!

Capture all the excitement of game day by snapping pics of the action, the players and teams. Try to include wide shots of the venue and close-ups of determined and focused faces.

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 summer 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 favorite color, etc.
The Bookworm Collection is a fabulous pairing to any layout related to school.

Document the reasons why they are your “Love Bug”. Trust me, it will make them feel loved beyond measure!

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 coloring. He will spend hours at the kitchen table, making pictures for his classmates. He is thoughtful like that.

Isn’t life beautiful?
There are so many days that I just have to step back and remind myself how beautiful this life we live really is. Take a deep breath, and take in all the sights, sounds, smells, and people around me.
By snapping a few photos of these things, is a wonderful reminder to LOVE LIFE! Today I challenge you to snap at least two photos of the things that will remind you to do this. Once you have these photos, add them to a layout! Throw a few flowers on there for the beauty-factor!

I am prepared to scrapbook this messy day with this double page layout using the Slice of Summer Designer Paper Pack, Slice of Summer Mat Pack and the Slice of Summer Stickers.
