I love working with old photos, especially when I know the names and even some of the stories that go along with them. I will admit it can be challenging to effectively arrange on a page a group of old delicate black and white photos, in all sizes and conditions.
That’s why I love the new Archiver’s™ collection. The muted color scheme and delicate laser cut embellishments blend so well with the old photos and eras so they complement, not distract, and help pull together a unified page. These borders serve to recreate the feel of an era gone by, to balance pages full of well-loved photos and the memories they evoke.

A little bit retro, and a whole lot of bright, colorful fun. That’s how I’d describe the new Bee Mine collection. Pair it with the new Daisy Bouquet Punch and the Arrow Border Maker Cartridge and you’ve got a party!
I had so much fun playing with the bright colors and patterns on this super cold and gray Minnesota winter day. It’s great therapy for the winter blues. Give it a try! You’ll be smiling in no time.

Have you been invited to a “crop”, or a scrapbooking retreat?
Depending on the length of the event we often times find ourselves wondering what we need to bring with us. We can so easily get side-tracked and want to take half of our possessions with us.
Take a step back and simplify. There are only 10 items that you should have. And, if you are missing one or two don’t panic as I am sure that one of your “crop” neighbors will have just what you are needing. And “crop” neighbors tend to be some of the nicest “folk” out there.
Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to northern MN to attend a “crop” with Creative Memories Advisors Sherry Bisek and Leslie Hauge. Their guests helped me-to help you- know what you should bring with you.
