Creating these borders with the fun and playful new Imagine Collection certainly puts me in my happy place! Just makes me want to pack my suitcase and set out for adventure!
The Sugarplum Variety Mat Pack and Embellishments played a starring role in these gift tags. Their cardstock weight is perfect for making lots of different kinds of tags and cards. And they are so simple to make, it’s easy to create oodles of them in no time at all! Just what we need during a busy Holiday season, right?
As hard as it is to see the fall season come to an end, there’s something crisp, quiet and cozy about the long winter ahead that holds an appeal for me. It doesn’t hurt that Creative Memories has just introduced this beautiful Glacier collection to enhance and enliven our pages of all things snowy! Playing with it has gotten me in the spirit of the season, a very looooong one for some of us! Bring it on!
So what happens when you combine the awesome Mix & Match papers with the adorable Sugarplum Collection and Holly Border Punch? Well, more adorable awesomeness, of course! Just in case any of you are craving a little traditional red and green or jewel tones this Holiday Season, I’ve added little pops of those colors from the Mix & Match paper packs. The Holly Border Punch brings it all together and gives the borders a festive feel.
The new Sugarplum collection is so whimsical and cheerful, it has me smiling today! Guess you could say I’ve got visions of Sugarplums dancing in my head. Time to play with these fun papers and adorable stickers and create some holiday borders!
The borders I’ve made will look great either added to the beautiful Sugarplum Fast2Fab pre-designed album pages or any other layout you have in mind. I’ve added a matching title or journal box to add to a double page spread, or they can be adapted to make a card.
What to send in a care package to a niece who’s away at college? Well, homemade cookies and candy, of course! But to personalize it a bit, I found some favorite photos of her, printed them at 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and matted some with Denim Blues paper to fill the pages of a Mini Album. I tucked in a little note of encouragement and a few gift cards. Finally, I accented the pages with Denim Blues Embellishments.
Fast2Fab Albums have quickly become my favorite way to scrapbook! I love how quickly and easily the pages come together, helping me stay caught up on my projects. Plus, with the matching papers and embellishments, I can add a little personalization and flexibility to the printed pages. Sometimes I’ll keep it super simple with just my photos and journaling; other times I’ll have more fun with it, adding borders, titles and stickers to spice it up.
The small, adorable size of the 8×8 album is perfect for gift albums, weekender albums and tribute albums. But sometimes adding another project on top of the regular family albums you’re already working on can seem a little daunting. Not anymore! Here’s a quick, easy way to make an 8×8 album using just a few supplies and tools of your choice!
I’ve used the Slice of Summer collection here, but you can use any collection of papers and stickers that suit your project. What will you use for yours?
Do not delay in getting your 8×8 Coversets, as they are only available a few times a year, and RIGHT NOW is one of those windows!
Not to worry though, the page refills are available all of the time. So, this allows you to create the pages whenever you wish!
No matter how old I get, Halloween will always be a fun and playful holiday to me. And the new Toil & Trouble collection is so fun and playful and colorful, it just puts me in the mood for tricks and treats! Making these borders was so easy and fun, I may just have to reward myself with a little Halloween candy from my secret stash…shhh!
Moving into a new home in a new city a few weeks ago, I was really excited, but I felt a bit out of my element, a little anxious. Stacks of boxes from floor to ceiling, furniture that didn’t fit the same way it did in our last home…it was overwhelming.
But little by little, one box at a time, one room at a time, our new house is taking shape. I’ve been appreciating the cozy nooks I’ve discovered, the way a framed picture looks in just the right spot…it feels like home. And my anxiousness is giving way to contentment.
