When deciduous trees go into dormancy and drop their leaves, what’s left are sturdy brown trunks and branches that seem to blend into the frigid landscape, only to be forgotten until budding spring. But evergreens never take a break; they withstand blustery days and stand out against Old Man Winter’s white coat. The frosty scene turns into a magical wonderland and a forest of opportunities — snowshoeing, nature walks, birdwatching and skiing. Also to add to the list? Making these winter scrapbook borders featuring the Treeline Border Maker Cartridge!Continue reading A Woodland Wonder Of Evergreen Memories: Winter Scrapbook Borders
Life is beautiful. Scrapbook it!
A nostalgic link to the past, scrapbooks — whether a jam-packed 12×12 album or a smaller 8×8 Paper Album or anything in between — hold everything from pretty paper and foiled embellishments to newspaper clippings, movie stubs, crinkled handwritten letters and candid shots of loved ones we wouldn’t want to lose. And with the upcoming U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, it’s the perfect time to dish out, celebrate and preserve what is meaningful and to practice gratitude for a life well-lived and true-story experiences. Feast on these four sketch ideas and think of memories you would give thanks to with this rendition of the Sketch Round-Up!
As soon as the holiday season arrives to town — like Santa on his sleigh — grocery store shelves are stacked high with tasty, festive treats like milk chocolate Santas, trees and gelt, hot cocoa and mini marshmallow kits, gingerbread houses, Linzer, snickerdoodle and frosted cookies, almond bark, fruitcakes… the sugar-ladened list goes on and on! And candy canes are also a sweet, minty emblem of the season, being used everywhere as decoration, a kiddo’s calming pacifier, a crunchy baking element or as a stirring stick for a pepperminty cup of coffee… and as a integral part of these Christmas scrapbook borders!Continue reading Mint Condition Christmas Scrapbook Borders With Candy Cane Stripes
