For those with a green thumb, summertime means one thing – gardening season. Many people like to grow flowers, shrubs and their own food or go out and pick fresh produce; some do it for the health benefits, others for affordability and some because they just enjoy the process! No matter what your reason is, if you enjoy gardening and picking fresh produce as much as you like you enjoy scrapbooking and being crafty, we’ve got two fun ways to combine the two hobbies! Blog contributor Kristin lays out two different produce-related projects that she likes taking on after she harvests the fruits of her labor, including a unique canning decoration and a beautiful berry picking project, which would also make a great gardening scrapbook layout. Check them out!
Have you had a great summer full of fun memories and want to make a summer scrapbook that does them justice? As we enter the end of July, now is the perfect time to look back at some of the past scrapbook layouts for summer that we’ve created and do a #ThrowbackThursday to re-create them! We’ve got one for you today that you’ll love… it’s a Slice of Summer layout that was featured on the blog last August, and this time we’ve created it using Sun-Kissed! So, as the sun continues to beat down and make the outdoors feel like the inside of an oven, now might be a great time to keep cool in your craft room and revisit the layout to make one (or a few!) for all of the summer memories you’ve made in 2018.
It’s #ThrowbackThursday here on the blog, and we’re traveling back to March of 2017 with a sketch challenge from a Virtual Crop! We asked one of our awesome blog contributors, Sarah, to use the sketch with the Full Bloom collection to create her version of it and give it her own spin. Ready to be inspired?
It’s our first #ThrowbackThursday on the blog! We provided one of our fabulous blog contributors, Meggan, with a sketch that we created for the Sorbet collection and asked her to re-create it using the Full Bloom collection and make it uniquely hers! Want to see? Take a look!
