Fun Study Buddies Scrapbooking Collection Bookmarks

Do you keep bookmarks handy when you’re reading a book? My husband reads a lot and keeps plenty of bookmarks laying around. Me? I use whatever is handy. Torn pieces of paper, store receipts, post-it-notes …. even unused Kleenex tissues – anything flat enough to mark my space in whatever book I’m reading.

School kids could probably use a book mark or two to keep track of where they are in their textbooks. Here are a few easy peasy bookmarks to create for your student. Better yet,  make it a fun project for the kids to create for themselves.

Pinterest Inspired Study Buddies Scrapbook Layout

Pinterest is my never fail go to place when I’m looking for ideas for a new scrapbook layout.

Most often I browse Pinterest looking for inspiration or an idea I can use on my own project. This time though I had something specific in mind – a one photo, school themed layout.

I found quite a few layouts that fit that criteria using Pinterest search. All I had to do was choose which layout I wanted to use.

Today I’m going to share my version of a layout created by Liz Qualman at Liz Qualman Designs. Liz created her super cute scrapbook layout for girl. Mine was created for a boy using Creative Memories’ new Study Buddies Collection. I used the same concept for my layout but changed things up a bit.

Basic to Dressy Natural Elegance Fast2Fab Scrapbook Page Ideas

I love it that I can create an entire scrapbook album in just a few hours with Creative Memories Fast2Fab Predesigned Albums. I just adhere my photos to the pages, add some journaling and that’s it! It’s great when I want to finish an album quickly. The cool thing is that there are coordinating embellishments, stickers and papers available when I want to dress my pages up. Today I’m going to share two scrapbook layouts from the Natural Elegance Fast2Fab album with you. One basic layout and one dressed up version.

Create The Perfect Wedding Guest Book With Creative Memories’ Natural Elegance Fast2Fab Album

With two weddings on my 2017 calendar, I’m already thinking about wedding shower gifts. My standard gift for a bride-to-be is a Creative Memories Fast2Fab album for the newlywed’s wedding and/or honeymoon photos. This time, though, I’m thinking of doing something a little different. Instead of handing each bride-to-be an unfinished scrapbook album, I plan to use their engagement photos to create the perfect wedding guest book. Creative Memories’ Natural Elegance Wedding Collection makes it so easy to create a guest book for your own wedding or to give as a gift.  Here are a few page ideas to get you started:

In the first part of this 2 part series, I shared CM’s basic tools for creating a scrapbook page.
