You work hard on your scrap pages and often the only place you see them is when you pull out the album you’ve stored them in. But they make lovely home decor pieces as well. And there are plenty of ways to display them.
As this year comes to a close, it becomes time to focus on the new year ahead and all the things yet to be accomplished. Wouldn’t it feel good to start 2016 with a bunch of completed pages? Well I’m here to help. First, I want to grant you freedom. Freedom to keep your pages simple and to not get caught up in perfection. Not every page needs to be a masterpiece or super creative. Second, I want to introduce you to some quick and easy layouts using 3, 4, and 5 pictures per page based on formulas. These formulas are simple, but the combinations are endless.
With the New Year just days away, we want to sneak a few peeks at the newest Anthology paper collection. It’s called “XOXO,” and we’re in love!
Ah, precious holiday cards. Every year we get a new collection of cards from friends and family, celebrating the festive season and the new year. Whether the cards were painstakingly crafted, store-bought and handwritten, or quickly created using a digital medium like Heritage Makers, each and every one was sent with love and well-wishes for the new year. But then, what to do with those special cards once the holiday season has ended? Do we simply throw them away and never look back? Or is there, perhaps, something better to be done? Below are a few of our favorite suggestions and tutorials to keep those holiday cards around to enjoy for years to come.
Have you seen this beautiful new collection from Katie Pertiet? Originally designed with heritage pages and faithbooking in mind, this collection has designs, textures, and journal prompts that can make a heritage or album of faith a breeze.
If you know me, you know I love everything scrapbooking; but today I want to give a shout-out to one of my favorite styles and methods for creatively preserving my photos.
“POCKET SCRAPBOOKING!” (that was me, shouting.)
Pocket scrapbooking took the paper scrapping world by storm a couple of years ago, and it has just gotten more popular with time. The popularity makes perfect sense because it’s a simple, time-saving approach that still allows for a bunch of creative expression!
This fun and easy method for scrapbooking involves the use of page protectors that are divided into a variety of pockets into which you place pictures and ready-made cards.
As you wrap up your year, isn’t it nice to think back on all the activities and memories from the year? Why not record them in a storybook that you can look at over and over? Our last Studio U class, Bound by Love, had great ideas for capturing your memories for the year. The best part, there’s no right or wrong way to put together your year in review book.
During the holidays, there are so many moments that you want to record in your scrapbook pages. To make this process a little easier, consider creating custom borders that you can make in advance or while you are scrapbooking. Lauren created this cute layout capturing her daughter’s first Christmas using borders and accents she created herself using the Joyous Noel by Katie Pertiet collection. Keep reading for tips and ideas from Lauren.
