There’s nothing like getting out in nature–feeling warm breezes, smelling trees and campfires, experiencing your surroundings, from ordinary to majestic. Of course, having your camera along to try to capture it all is part of the adventure! When you’re back home, spreading out your pictures and remembering the day, the Adventure Collection’s earthy designs, colors and images will help you tell the story in vivid detail.
The Pockets Albums are a great way to get a project done quickly, especially for gifts. I love using lots of embellishments so incorporating digital artwork with my photos works fantastically for pocket pages.
Those with graduates this spring know how frenzied and full (and emotional) these last weeks leading up to graduation can be! Let your documenting of the event be the easy part. Simply grab the new Cap & Gown Collection, cardstock in your grad’s school colors and a few tools, and follow along to make some simple striking borders for your upcoming pages. Oh! And congratulations to your grad…and to you!
Furry friends are the best, aren’t they? Many of us love our pets so much we take oodles of pictures of them and dedicate entire albums to capturing the special bonds we share with them. The Fur Buddies Paper and Stickers are PURR-fectly wonderful for those fun and lovable pages, and I couldn’t wait to get my PAWS on the new Paw Prints Border maker Cartridge to make some borders. Hope you DIG ’em!
What’s not to love about the new Woodland Whimsy Baby Collection? The colors, the patterns and the oh-so-adorable baby animal stickers are breathtaking! I couldn’t wait to play…
These borders are designed with options for both boys and girls and play really nicely with the Woodland Whimsy Fast2Fab predesigned pages. Make them up, and use as you wish to add a little flair on pages of baby’s monthly milestones.
Tip: You may want to wait to add the month shapes, as you can mix and match any of the borders with any months as you create your baby’s album.
My husband travels a lot for work and it can be lonely when you are required to be a away from your family and your home. We all carry cell phones that have lots of photos stored on them and access to social media to see what is happening at home, but there is nothing as rewarding as holding an album with printed photos of the people you love in your hands.
2 for 1 is always a great thing, right? How about this: Start by creating a dozen borders using the Mi Amor collection. Then cut them apart and use one set to decorate an 8×8 Album for your sweetheart and the other set to make a dozen Valentine greeting cards.
Dig out those black and whites, and re-live the memories of your ancestors!
Old black and white vintage photos pair perfectly with our recent Uncharted Collection!

Thanks to album expert and CM Advisor Fran Smitherman, we’re pleased to present to you a series of blog posts where we’ll be covering themed albums as our topic of focus. In this, her first in the series, Fran is showcasing Travel Albums. Of course, it’s one of the heaviest photo-taking ventures one can experience and it ultimately becomes difficult to know where to start once you return home with cards full of beautiful photos. Fran offers some wonderful ideas and suggestions on getting started. Check out Fran’s post here:
