There are so many ways to spread holiday cheer and the Studio U class on November 19th was packed with ideas! From cards to gifts, you’re sure to find something you can use in the coming weeks. And make sure you order now so you have them on hand when you’re ready to share.
This week we are excited to feature our coasters, one of the newest products available for digital customization through Heritage Makers. Coasters can, of course, be used in the traditional way, but we wanted to think outside the box for ideas to use this versatile product as gifts and home decor.
If you make your own cards you are probably in the planning stages, if you haven’t already started. I love being able to create cards using paper scraps, and holiday cards are no exception. I have three cards for you using non-traditional colors from Our Memories for Life collections. One uses a Christmas collection, but the other two do not. So keep reading to see how you can make the most of all your supplies when creating holiday cards.
Christmas is coming! Now you can get ready for your holiday pictures with this fun layout featuring the beautiful new collection “Joyous Noel” by Katie Pertiet. You may want to order more than one bundle of paper, journaling cards and border strips when you see it—just look at those darling polka dots and layered graphics! This layout also features the Black Noir designer refill pages, the scallop shell border cartridge, and the Christmas Joy accent stickers.
Do you find that you take the majority of your photos on one of your digital devices? Did you know we have a mobile app that can help you easily upload these photos from your device straight to the albums on your Heritage Makers account? It’s free and so simple to use! In this blog post we’ll give you a quick crash course so you can start using this app in no time. First, you’ll need to open the app store on your device and search “HM Photosafe Mobile Manager,” and you’ll see the image below.
For some, calendars are their best friend! They know exactly where they’ll be on any given day and all is right in the world as long as they have a calendar. For others, they’re a decorative item that happens to have important information on it and a few random notes. Whichever you are, or somewhere in the middle, keeping track of important dates has never been easier or better looking than it is with calendars created with Heritage Makers Studio. And there are so many templates that you can use as is or swap colors and accents to create your own look.
Does it feel like fall in your neck of the woods? It does here! The mornings are chilly, the trees are changing color, and there’s a dusting of snow on the tippy tops of the mountains. And if fall is here that means the holidays are coming and so are the November kits from Anthology by Lisa Bearnson. Want a quick look at what the kits look like? Get ready!
You may be in denial, but the holidays are fast approaching, which means it’s time to plan those handmade gifts. I love giving gifts I can customize for each recipient, even if the concept is the same or similar. That’s how today’s blog post came to be. The IKEA Rusch Clock is an inexpensive base that can be adapted to any design for a variety of people. If you don’t have an IKEA near you, they sell these online as well.
Happy Friday! Today seems like a great day to show you the latest in the Our Memories for Life free downloads. And notice I said downloads – not one, but TWO downloads! We have one for the Fall Flourish by Katie Pertiet collection and TWO for Joyous Noel by Katie Pertiet (note, that the Joyous Noel download contains two freebies).
To start us off, let’s look at what the freebies look like:
It’s hard to believe but we are only two weeks from Halloween, which means Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. Have no fear, Anthology by Lisa Bearnson is here to help you capture your memories and celebrate in style with the October kits.
