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.

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.

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.

3 Ways To Use Washi Tape

Washi Tape.

Woohoo.  WASHI TAPE!

It is now part of the Creative Memories line.

Our first offering is part of our Toil & Trouble Collection.  Although it might be included in the Halloween line, the designs are in no way themed for the holiday.  The colors are bright and can be added to any card flaps to put a finishing touch on your mail.

In fact, add washi tape to ANYTHING for fun!  Why not, when you have 26.2 feet on each roll?  That means you get over 104 feet between these four rolls.

Most importantly it is photo-safe!
