I am a traditional scrapbooker as well as a digital designer and two of my favourite embellishments are flowers and gems when I am scrapping traditionally. So… you can only imagine my delight when the Mix & Match Digital Kits were introduced…and in so many beautiful colours!!!
I love layering different flower combinations along with the gems and the HUGE benefit when scrapping digitally is you never run out of your favourites because the supply is endless! I am going to share a few pages I designed to show you different colour combinations and ways to decorate your pages with these “little gems”.

Borders are a staple in scrapbooking. Whether working on the most elaborate or the most simple spread, creating a border has long time been a go-to for scrapbookers. There are so many different materials you can use for borders from cardstock to designer paper, stickers to embellishments. The Border Maker System is a must-have tool if you enjoy making borders – it is so user friendly and the options are endless with the catalogue of cartridges available. Today, I want to share with you three different borders made with three different product collections.
Fall is my favourite time for photography! I love all of the colours in the fall palette! Along with fall comes Halloween and all of the photo opportunities surrounding this time of the year.
Pumpkins to Jack-o-lanterns
Leading up to Halloween I like to get photos of the children carving their pumpkins and what designs they come up with every year.
Lauren’s jack-o-lantern is always very creative and usually has a theme – The Walking Dead this year!
Whether you are a simple scrapper, a pocket scrapper or a decorative scrapper, the beautiful Natural Elegance Collection will help you create gorgeous layouts that effortlessly highlight your wedding photos! I used the lovely papers, sticker, embellishments and slide-in cards from the collection with my own wedding photos to create an almost instant “naked” page on the beloved Black Scrapbook Pages, a slide-in page using the versatile Multi-Pocket Pages and a more traditional layout where I got to have fun with layering decorative papers & borders and making embellishments clusters.
Black pages are an ideal backdrop for the bright lights and costumes in photos from performances. In this layout with photos from a Disney on Ice show, I coordinated some light coloured products to contrast with the black background.
