It’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. It’s even easier to get caught up in a routine. Sometimes, life can be so busy that we forget to do the things that we love — such as scrapbooking and crafting. But, by scheduling some time and dedicating yourself 100% to your projects during that allotted time, you’d be surprised with how much you can get done! Need some projects to work on during your scrapbook time? Check out these project ideas in today’s Weekly Sketch Round-Up!
Happy Mother’s Day weekend! How can we ever begin to thank our mothers (and mother figures)? They’re the ones who raise us, teach us right from wrong and provide support every step of the way. Being a mother is possibly the toughest job in the world (and the pay isn’t great either), which is why Mother’s Day is so important — it’s the one day of the year dedicated to those who have given up so much. It can be tricky to come up with a gift for mom that holds the value that she deserves. You’ve shared so many great memories with her — why not showcase and preserve these memories with a beautiful Mother’s Day scrapbook layout! Check out this awesome sketch you can use and then see three Home Office creations using the sketch to get inspired!
They say when it comes to giving gifts, it’s the thought that counts. What better way for a crafter to show how much they care than with a DIY card? With Mother’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to learn how to create a fun, spring-themed DIY Mother’s Day card that mom is sure to love! Find out how in today’s post!
Why do we love sketches so much? Is it the fact that they help break us out of a scrapboooking rut? Maybe it’s the fact that although we all see the same sketch, what we do with it varies completely depending on our taste, our style and our own creative preferences. No matter what the reason is, we love sketches, and if you love sketches too, then you’ll love today’s Weekly Sketch Round-Up! Check it out!
It’s finally here… THIS WEEKEND we celebrate National Scrapbook Day!!! It’s obviously kind of a big deal for us because, in our opinion (and hopefully yours), it’s the best day of the year and is an awesome reason to celebrate! We know there will be lots of weekend events and retreats, cropping with friends or scrapbooking away in the quiet solitude of your own craft cave. Need a fun project to create to celebrate the big day? Check out this scrapbook layout made by Marja from CM Home Office Canada and try creating them yourself! (Hint: If you’ve never seen the exclusive products that are used in this layout, make sure you check out the Ingredients section to see how YOU can get them!)
Have some leftover scrapbook papers that you don’t have a use for? Do you have scraps of paper lying around that aren’t large enough to use in an album? You’re in luck, because with a little bit of inventiveness and imagination from CM Advisor Tina (and the help of the Custom Cutting System Circle Patterns) you can create your very own DIY paper rosettes! These rosettes work great as decorations for events or parties (plus, they just look cool). Check out how they look when done with the Flourish papers!
Have you ever heard the phrase “doing something is better than doing nothing”? It’s an important phrase to remember in all aspects of life, but it’s especially true for scrapbookers. Sometimes, we feel a lack of motivation. But, when that happens, the best way to get out of that funk is to just sit down and create something, no matter how unfinished it looks or how little you do. Still need a push in the right direction? Check out the Weekly Sketch Round-Up for some ideas to get you started!
