Sorbet Fast2Fab + New Tools = Sweet!

IMG_3484

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.

Here are a few sweet Fast2Fab layouts combining the Sorbet Collection with some of the newest tools. A BEFORE photo shows the pre-printed layout, and an AFTER photo is what it looks like with a few simple touches. I’ve added a few tried and true “F2F TIPS” that help me make the most of this way of album-making. If you haven’t tried a Fast2Fab yet…what are you waiting for?

Scrapbooking Layouts Using Sorbet Collection

DSC_0010

Today, I’m encouraging you to take a closer look at our new Sorbet Scrapbooking Collection.  When I first saw it, I immediately noticed the pinks, purples, yellows and all of the flowers.  But on a closer look, I realized that it really is a versatile collection.  The feminine colors are balanced by shades of orange, blue, green and gray.  It’s obviously going to be fantastic for all types of spring projects and scrapbooking, but the playful artwork of this collection is also going to be great for scrapbooking photos of both my granddaughter and my grandson.

Welcome to Part 2, Mi Amor 2 for 1 Borders.

Did you like the border ideas, which get cut up into two pieces–using one portion for 8×8 pages?  In this post, you will see how to add the rest of those pieces to create beautiful cards.

Using the pictures as your guide, make 12 Valentine cards with your remaining border pieces. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please refer back to Part 1.)

Mi Amor Cards!

fullsizeoutput_afc

Today I want to share with you one of my absolute favourite fun folds for making cards. It’s called an easel fold. Every time I’ve given an easel card to a friend or family member they are always received with such awe and amazement – when really, it’s such an easy card to make!

So, I chose to use Mi Amor for these cards because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s sort of fun to go all out and make an extra special, handmade card to show the ones you love just how special they are!

As the photos show above – this fun fold will allow your cards to sit on display in a propped up position so that not only does your card front show, but also some of your inside embellishments and any greeting or message you choose to write below your embellishments!

Photo Tips – Birthday Photos

What do you photograph at birthdays?  I wanted to share a few of the things that I like to photograph on that special day in our home.

Cake

Do you buy a cake or make a cake for the birthday person?  Is there a family favourite that you always make or buy?  Is there a theme cake?  I always try to take a photo of the cake so we can look back each year to see what creation I have come up with.
