Brocade is an ornate fashion trend that has stood the test of time, originating from the Middle Ages. It’s a decorative fabric that is shuttle-woven with a raised pattern, typically featuring silver or gold thread, which exudes a feeling of timeless elegance and luxuriousness. Inspired by this stylish, scrolly sentiment, the Brocade Chain Border Maker Cartridge can make your special moments (think milestone anniversaries, dinner parties, prom, black-tie weddings and more) dress to the nines with ease. Make a fashion statement frenzy in a flash with these brocade border ideas for scrapbooking!Continue reading An Ode To Opulence: Brocade Border Ideas For Scrapbooking

In 2022, we introduced the Completed Album Challenge… and we’re continuing the awesomeness (and the satisfaction of finishing an album!) into 2023! Let this challenge be a part of your new year’s resolution to scrapbook more, get those photos off your phone or digital camera and to put the final finishing touch on whatever album you’re piecing together for yourself or as a gift!
To kickstart this goal, today we have the first Completed Album Challenge of the year going on in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group! If you completed an album this month (does not need to be from start to finish in January, just completed in January), make a short video flipping through each of the pages in your newly completed album. Then, post your video in the Virtual Crop Facebook Group with the hashtag #CompletedJan2023 for the chance to win!
NOTE: For this January challenge, you can share ANY album(s) that you finished in January 2023 AND any album(s) you completed throughout 2022 — even ones you already posted! Why? Because it’s fun to start the year off strong and see everything that we accomplished together last year! From February on out, you’ll want to show a newly completed album that you finished during the month to be eligible to win.
And to add to this crop-tastic challenge, take on this Creative Memories-themed scrapbook layout that features the latest (and supremely scrappy) Scrap Happy 2 collection!

No matter the special occasion, we’re inviting you into this silver and gold scrapbook layout that will add a distinguishing touch to your next project — it’s a celebration scrapbook idea that’s ready to party on!Continue reading Party With Pizzazz: Silver And Gold Scrapbook Layout

So once the end-of-the-year snapshots are taken, rally together your celebratory craft supplies and make these New Year borders.
