Why did blue become a shade associated with sadness? Whenever someone “is feeling blue” or “has the blues,” we know they’re saying they’re sad or glum… but blue is such an awesome shade that can evoke all sorts of different feelings and emotions! Take this Water & Sky scrapbook layout for example – when we look at this layout, sad is the last thing we feel! Check out the instructions on how to make it and see for yourself!
It’s funny — have you ever noticed that despite all the hard work that artists and archaeologists do, sometimes the natural beauty that Mother Nature provides is the most breathtaking of it all? This phenomenon was the main focus that went into designing the Textures collection; specifically, the Sky & Water Paper Pack. These papers were designed with a barrage of blues that remind us that the best visuals in the world aren’t found on a screen or on a canvas. Check out this water and sky-themed scrapbook layout that perfectly captures the natural beauty found on planet Earth!

A certain cartoon crab once said that life is better under the sea. Although our lack of gills makes it impossible for us to confirm this, that doesn’t stop us from using our imagination to picture what a life underwater would be like. It certainly didn’t stop the granddaughter of blog contributor Vanessa, who decided on having a mermaid-themed party for her third birthday. This gave Vanessa the idea of using the Sun-Kissed collection and adjusting it to make her layout for the party capture the aquatic essence of the event. The result? An underwater-themed scrapbook layout that looks like it came straight from the bottom of the ocean!
