April is the perfect month to create and order a new bag! With the change of seasons, upcoming family trips and vacations, end of school year, Mothers’ Day and more, there are so many fun occasions and reasons to update your look, add a new personalized bag to your day to day life, and give to your loved ones. All month long you can save 10% on any bag style! The template gallery has a wide variety of designs and styles to choose from. At the end of last year, we introduced three new bag styles: Carry All Tote, Large Hipster Bag, Lunch Bag. These new additions are so versatile and such great gifts for family and friends.
Last February I had a terrible case of the flu for three weeks solid. During that time I watched way too much HGTV and soon took a sledge hammer to my dark kitchen (kidding) and completely remodeled. I went light, bright, and neutral. However, I am a LOVER of color and changing up decor for the changing seasons so I made sure the focal point of my kitchen had plenty of spaces to decorate.
Here is my “love” kitchen–yep, Valentine’s Day on steroids! And, I’m so excited to share with you all the Youngevity Memory Keeping brands that were used in most of the projects!
By now, I’m hoping you’ve seen the Wonder Designer Coordinates by Lauren Hinds collection and the Everyday Birthday 2″ Border Strips by Lauren Hinds. If not, you can see close ups in last week’s blog post. Today, I have a special treat for you. Mindy Catlett created a variety of pages with the same photos to show how swapping out border strips and journal cards can quickly change the look of your page.
Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that is really subjective. There are some years when our Valentine’s day is full of happy festivities, parties, good food, good company, and lots of love! Then, there are some years when Valentine’s Day doesn’t quite happen exactly as planned or desired. As each Valentine’s Day comes and goes, I have tried to make the day more of a meaningful and enjoyable one, regardless of my life’s circumstances or chaotic schedule. Why don’t we take it into our own hands, and make the holiday a happy one…a better one..by being the one to SHARE the LOVE! Last week’s Studio U class was specifically geared towards that very purpose, focusing on a variety of ways to share love with those around you and for the Valentine’s Day festivities in your life! Feel free to watch the archived class for the full video of tips and products!
During the class, Brooke walked us through how to create and convert this adorable 11 x 14 Print, Love You (143525) into a Greeting Card. Watching someone create in Studio is always a great way to learn new ways to design on your own. The Love You template is also now available in the template gallery as a 5 x 7 Greeting card as well for your use and ease! (143530)
Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends, a time of giving, reflection, and gratitude. It is also a time for lots of glorious gatherings and food! Hosting family and friends for dinner parties and dessert nights comes with the added weight of wanting our homes to be festive and put together (no pressure!) Simple touches, especially festive ones, bring instant charm to the home. This is where Heritage Makers takes its role as our super-helper! There are many adorable templates that can bring the desired Thanksgiving cheer to our homes for the month and for the big Turkey Day!
As the year comes to an all-too-quick close, I start to look back at all the memories made through the year. With the holidays approaching, I love the opportunity to take my memories and put them into a Storybook to share with my family and friends. It’s been said that “a picture says a thousand words,” but a book full of pictures shares an entire experience and memories!
Last Christmas, my sister and I put together a book for our grandparents, full of photos and memories from over the summer. Our whole family had visited them over a period of a couple of weeks. I will never forget the faces and tears of my grandparents as they opened the book on Christmas morning. Even though it was through a video call, their emotions and faces were priceless. They cherish the book filled with the sweet faces of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Each page of the Storybook brings them right back to those days when their house was not so quiet and was filled with giggles, toys, cries, late night talks, and kids’ TV shows.
The holidays are fast approaching but Heritage Makers is ready to make things a little easier for you. The Holiday Jubilee is all about saving money as you create personalized photo gifts for friends and family.
Halloween is one of those holidays that people either love or tolerate. Personally, I’m all in favor of holidays that have candy as a central part of celebrating! Plus, I get to be a kid for a day and dress up. To help you get your happy Halloween going, I want to share two templates that made me smile with jack-o-lantern glee.
I whipped up this digital scrapbook page from scratch in under 30 minutes in Heritage Makers Studio.
I remember when I was little seeing an ad on TV for books that you could customize for your child with his or her name and thinking that was so cool. With Heritage Makers you can take that one step further and include photos of your child or photos of whatever story you are telling. There are so many stories to tell. Have you told your story?
