10 Must-Haves for a Crop

Have you been invited to a “crop”, or a scrapbooking retreat?

Depending on the length of the event we often times find ourselves wondering what we need to bring with us.  We can so easily get side-tracked and want to take half of our possessions with us.

Take a step back and simplify.  There are only 10 items that you should have.  And, if you are missing one or two don’t panic as I am sure that one of your “crop” neighbors will have just what you are needing.  And “crop” neighbors tend to be some of the nicest “folk” out there.

Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to northern MN to attend a “crop” with Creative Memories Advisors Sherry Bisek and Leslie Hauge.  Their guests helped me-to help you- know what you should bring with you.

I Love Christmas!

Poinsettia-Punch-Scrapbooking-Layout-Creative-Memories

I love everything about the Christmas season; my family traditions, making new traditions with friends, red and green decorations, blue and silver decorations…you name it and if it’s Christmas, I’m in. One thing that is tradition in my area (maybe everywhere else too?) is living/singing Christmas trees. Choral groups in Christmas tree formation with beautiful poinsettias in front of them. It so happens I just received my poinsettia punch! So inspired by the singing poinsettia Christmas tree, I tried to recreate that on my layout! Here’s to traditions old and new….no matter how you celebrate with your family and friends…take pictures and preserve those memories!

Woodland Whimsy Baby Borders

What’s not to love about the new Woodland Whimsy Baby Collection? The colors, the patterns and the oh-so-adorable baby animal stickers are breathtaking! I couldn’t wait to play…

These borders are designed with options for both boys and girls and play really nicely with the Woodland Whimsy Fast2Fab predesigned pages. Make them up, and use as you wish to add a little flair on pages of baby’s monthly milestones.

Tip: You may want to wait to add the month shapes, as you can mix and match any of the borders with any months as you create your baby’s album.
