Summer is the perfect time to spotlight friends and family. Preserve a once-in-a-lifetime moment or a once-upon-a-time vacation, and precious family memories will last a lifetime! Celebrate your child’s first concert or honor a grandparent’s World War II military service. July’s Studio art release brings wonderful new art to help you lift loved ones with a page or project this summer.
In bright, theme-park colors, “Magical Vacation Pieces” and “Magical Vacation Papers” are the perfect pair to tell the story of your family’s Disney vacation or to celebrate a Mickey Mouse style birthday. Designed by Cynthia Coulon, the duo is colorful, contemporary and lots of fun. If you’ve taken time as a family to vacation in one of the Magic Kingdoms, use this collection to make those special memories live longer.
Shanna Vineyard used the two “Magical Vacation” collections to make her bright and contemporary “Magical Memories,” 12 x 12 digital scrapbooking page template 110491. Michelle Bell wanted the magical memories of her family’s Disneyland visit to live on, long after their trip was over, so she designed this 8 x 8 storybook, template 110572.
New from Roxanne Buchholz, “All School Band” and “All School Theater” are two collections you’ll turn to again and again to celebrate each performer and special event in your family. Full of instruments, lighting and tickets; each of these 100-plus-item collections is designed in the same style and color palette and can be used interchangeably.
Showcasing the versatility of “All School Band” and “All School Theater” collections are these three templates by Roxanne Buchholz. “Birthday Jam Invitation” is a 4 x 8 photo card, template 110402
