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?

Everything about the Sorbet Collection makes me happy! Fun, bright colors and playful flowers and shapes just make me smile. I couldn’t wait to pull out our fun new tools and play around with some borders! I like to use the borders to personalize my Sorbet Fast2Fab album, although they’re sure to add a lively spark to any kind of page style. Give ’em a try…bet you’ll be smiling, too!

We know that you all love a great sketch.

Sketches have so much life in them.  Use different collections each time, and you are sure to have endless possibilities.  You can also rotate the sketch right or left, and get a whole new take on it.

Sketches are created as a “jumping off” point for you.  They can be interpreted exactly or very loosely.  There are not measurements, so you can make it yours.

This day is just flying by!

So much of North America is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend!  Here in Minnesota we are having some unseasonably WARM weather (we are NOT complaining). But, it means that we are longing for Spring–which we know is realistically a few months away. Before we can think about spring, we need to think about Valentine’s Day!  What do you think of when you hear that holiday mentioned?

HEARTS!

Feeling Inspired with Painted Harvest

I had the pleasure of working on a wedding album with one of my best friends recently and when we were going through her photos she also shared with me her engagement photos. As soon as I saw them I immediately knew that we couldn’t complete this album without throwing in a few of the engagement shots as well.

The photos were taken in autumn up here in Canada where the colours in nature become vibrant and absolutely stunning for a few blissful weeks every year. The photos screamed Painted Harvest as soon as I saw them and then once I put together a quick layout I couldn’t believe how perfectly it came together.
