New Orleans. NOLA. The Big Easy. Birthplace of Jazz. N’awlins. A city by many names, but all conjure the attitude of “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” (“Let the good times roll!”) that hangs in the city’s humid air. New Orleans is a melting pot of so many cultures and people, and with that, many items to enjoy and see — the purple, green and gold beads and party parades of Mardi Gras, the history of the French Quarter, jazzy tunes enveloping the streets, the beauty of bayous and low-lying wetlands, ghost tours, the wafts of crawfish étouffée, jambalaya, red beans and rice, sweet and fluffy beignets and more delicious fare — there’s so much to love in this U.S. bucket-list city. Let’s, as they say in NOLA, “pass the good time” with this New Orleans scrapbook layout to relive those great times!Continue reading Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler: New Orleans Scrapbook Layout

“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold.” — Aristotle
There’s something so lovely about the first snowfall of winter. Yes, it does mean the start of longer, colder months, but as those fluffy white flakes slowly drift down to blanket the Earth with crystalline patterns, many cannot help but become entranced at the magical meteorology. And after that fresh snow cloaks the landscape, go for an evening walk — your boots make crunching sounds, the air is crisp and the snow is glistening in the moonlight. See? Magic.
Today’s blog is all about the beauty of snow (before we have to shovel if off the driveway!), so bundle up and take a look at this snowflake scrapbook layout!
More elegant that a wave and more entrancing than a simple geometric pattern, the repeated series of arcs and curvaceous shapes of scallops make it a subtle yet also bold design impression. And if you want to double down on this dynamic detail, then the Mirrored Scallops Chain Border Maker Cartridge is your aesthetic answer. Make these brr-illiant winter scrapbook projects, featuring scallop borders, that are snow much fun to make. (The scalloped designs almost mimic snowball shapes or mounds of skiable snow, too!)Continue reading Snow Much Fun: Scallop Borders for Winter Scrapbook Projects
