Warm & Cozy with the Glacier Collection

Hi everybody. It’s Nicole with a fun winter layout using the new Glacier Designer Paper Pack, Designer Stickers, and the Variety Mat Pack. The blues in this collection are beautiful! I must admit that I said “oooooooh” when I pulled this gorgeous collection out of the box! And it doesn’t stop at the blues… I can’t get enough of the cute little birdie stickers. :)

This collection is perfect for scrapbooking those winter photos! Although we did not get much snow last year, we got maybe an inch or two. Edward was excited to make a snowman, but I had to gently tell him that we weren’t getting that kind of snow. So we went outside so he could eat the snow and then throw fluffy snowballs at mommy for about twenty minutes.

Adventure Memories

Hi everybody! I’ve been playing with a new tool and the Adventure Designer Paper Pack, Adventure Designer Sticker Pack and the Variety Mat Pack. Believe it or not, these photos were from Easter Sunday. Every year, when we visit my husband’s side of the family, Edward likes to go down to the stream to play in the water. He has been doing this for the past four years. And every year, I forget to take a change of clothes for him to change into after he falls and gets himself wet. Note to self: Pack extra clothes this Easter.

A Winter Wonderland with the Glacier Collection

Glacier-Collection-Layout-Project-Creative-Memories

This weekend brought our first snowfall for central Minnesota.  It had me all giddy thinking about all the layouts that could be created using the new Glacier Collection.  The colors, the patterns, and the sentiments are all perfect for any snow related photos.

I literally had to pull over and take in some of the beauty that was falling from the sky.  Come March, I may not feel this way about it, but for now I am going to take it all in.

What is your favorite snow activity?

The Best of Times Layout

Best-of-Times-Croptoberfest-Kit Layout-Project

Hello everyone. Just recently, I came across a photo on my Facebook “On This Day” feed and came across a photo that I never scrapped. It was a favorite of mine too, but at the time, I did not have the right papers or embellishments to use for the layout. Until, almost four years later… As you can see, I do not scrapbook in chronological order; I scrapbook the photos that inspire me to scrapbook; photos and memories that I love…

The Croptoberfest Project Recipe Kit was perfect for these photos. The colors and patterns were just what I was looking for. And of course, I fell in love with the stickers. I just couldn’t stop adding them to the layout!

The Brainiac with Bookworm

How exciting!!!  A collection for all of your school memories.

As you may remember, I am new to the scrapbooking part of papercrafting.  I have a pile of my kids’ school memories that need to get into books.  I am not overwhelmed by the process. I figure I will let the paper “speak” to me.  That is exactly what this Bookworm Collection did to me.  It spoke to me when picking a photo.  My daughter spoke to me as well!  When I showed her the picture that I decided on she said, “really Mom, you couldn’t have picked another picture that made me look less dorky?”.
