On April 25, Australians across the country celebrate those who have served to protect at Anzac Day services and marches. Independent Advisor Megan Crowley from Australia created this beautiful military-inspired layout featuring the Camouflage Paper Pack and Tulips Border Punch to preserve her family’s memories of Anzac Day commemorations. Take a look below!
We’re so egg-cited, we just can’t hide it – Easter is right around the corner! The pretty pastel shades, the bright and vivid dyed eggs, the joy in the air and the (sometimes) sunny weather makes this a great weekend for everyone who enjoys snapping pictures. You’ll likely be taking plenty of photos during Easter weekend, but what will you do with said photos? Don’t worry, be HOPPY because Kelly from Creative Memories Australia has come up with a fun Easter scrapbook layout that somebunny will love to look at in their album for years to come! Check it out in today’s post! (Oh, and if you’re thinking “For peeps’ sake – enough with the Easter puns already!” don’t worry, that’s all yolks. Seriously, that’s the last one!)
Family is definitely important; these are the people that you’ll spend the most time with throughout the years. All of the shared laughs, smiles, moments and memories lead to plenty of photos taken. Whether they’re candid or the (often unenthusiastic) family group photo, you need somewhere to put these photos! In today’s post, find out how to create the perfect family scrapbook layout with the Gather Together collection by reading what blog contributor Nicole put together!

The Little Lamb Baby collection features a soft, playful palette of pastel hues and designs with a charming modern-farmhouse feel. The versatility of it makes it perfect not only for babies and young children, but also for themes such as birthdays, trips to the farm and zoo, springtime and more. Take a look at how we used it in a project below!
Imagine. Love. Dreams. Wish. Family. Moments.
The words in the Imagine Laser Cut Embellishments speak to me. They make me want to gather my family close and reminisce over photos and memories, old and new.
Poring over a bunch of old, seemingly random photos the other day got me thinking about how connected everything in my life really is. The circle of life and all that. How fun would it be to create a little coffee table book, connecting the old with the new, Then and Now? What if I could pull it out when the family is gathered and journal memories in it as the photos are talked about and stories are remembered?
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.
Countryside Comfort is perfect for Thanksgiving table favours with the rich fall colours featured in both the traditional and digital collections.
I don’t just use my digital content for scrapbook pages. It can be incorporated into so many areas of my life! For today’s project I used digital content and traditional products to create table place cards for Thanksgiving dinner for our family.
A few weeks ago upon arriving home for work, I did what I normally do-check the mailbox (of course, hoping that I got that check from Ed McMahon and Publisher’s Clearing House). It wasn’t there, but our small local newspaper was.
The Sauk Rapids Herald.
I perused it, looking at the local police happenings (small town) and outcome of our beloved “Storm” sports teams.
As I was reading there was a certain article that struck a chord with me. I can relate to the thousands of undeveloped photographs in my phone, how about you?
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!
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.
