The Precision Point Adhesive is a much loved form of adhesive for adhering those small delicate and detailed pieces to your projects.  Like the Laser-Cut Embellishments, or a paper flower.

To use the “pen-like” adhesive, you will lightly press the tip onto your project while gently squeezing the bulb.  This will release the baby blue colored glue onto your project.  Don’t worry though–it dries clear!

How do you envision using your Precision Point Adhesive on your projects?

Fancy Up Your Countryside Comfort Fast2Fab

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. Sometimes I’ll keep it super simple with just my photos and journaling; other times I’ll have more fun with it, adding borders, titles and stickers to spice it up.

Love Moments Today

When I am documenting my memories, I love to capture everyday moments.  A walk in the woods with my son, having coffee with a friend, having a snowball fight with my husband, or watching my sweet newborn nephew sleep.

Don’t let these moments pass you by.  These are the moments that make up our lives.  We couldn’t possibly celebrate BIG holiday’s everyday, but we can make the little moments the BIG ones.

How To Use Vellum!

Vellum is one of those incredible crafting mediums what when used properly can add so much to a simple layout or card. The trick with vellum is finding a way to adhere it to your project in a way that doesn’t show through the transparent paper. Once you’ve mastered the adhering, vellum can be used to add a layer of interest over a solid colour or pattern. Vellum is also great to use as a way of toning down, or muting a pattern so that either your photos or journaling can stand out and be the visual focus of the layout or card.

Let me show you some of my tricks as well as a layout and card that came together super quickly using vellum!

Countryside Comfort Scrapbooking Borders

Moving into a new home in a new city a few weeks ago, I was really excited, but I felt a bit out of my element, a little anxious. Stacks of boxes from floor to ceiling, furniture that didn’t fit the same way it did in our last home…it was overwhelming.

But little by little, one box at a time, one room at a time, our new house is taking shape. I’ve been appreciating the cozy nooks I’ve discovered, the way a framed picture looks in just the right spot…it feels like home. And my anxiousness is giving way to contentment.

Family Fun with Countryside Comfort

I love family time.  It is the best warm and fuzzy feeling there is.  I am sure that you have seen these family photos of mine on many projects, but let me share the story.

It was a fall day in 2011.  My oldest son was a senior in high school.  This mamma bear was on a mission to have fun family photos taken before the birdie left the nest.  At this point my boys were so tired of me sticking a camera in their face, so I was feeling “iffy” about how the day might go.

To my surprise, it was the funnest day our family had had in a long time.  We smiled, and laughed, and were just plain silly.  So, if you have seen some of the silly ones—this is why. We actually got in the car to head home, and they both commented about how much FUN that photo shoot was.

So, find yourself a FUN-loving photographer who will let your family be yourselves—-and capture those memories…..before the nest is empty.
