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!
There’s nothing like life in the great outdoors. So much adventure and wonder await all of us in nature, and those who chase it are left with memories that will last a lifetime.

Check out this example of an outdoor scrapbook layout made with Great Escape to get a sense of the possibilities that come with this collection!
The new Travel Log collection will help you create the best travel scrapbook layouts imaginable and includes everything you need to create layouts or a travel journal that you can look back on years after the trip takes place. With this collection (and new tools!) at your fingertips, you can bring your travel memories to life in all sorts of exciting new ways. Check out this Travel Log layout in today’s post to get started!
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!)
Scrapbooking comes with peaks and valleys. There are times when you can get frustrated (something isn’t turning out just right, you keep getting distracted, etc.), but these valleys are greatly overshadowed by the peaks of happiness that you feel when something turns out exactly like you wanted it to. This metaphor is brought to life with this outdoor scrapbook layout made with the Majestic Mountains Border Punch. Check out this fun layout created by blog contributor Krislyn!
