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!
Storybooks are a way to display, remember, and archive beautiful life moments. This month, all Storybooks are on sale for 10%! To commemorate this month’s awesome savings, I wanted to highlight a feature and ability that I love about creating Storybooks in Heritage Makers. Heritage Makers gives us the versatility to import previously designed projects into other product types using the fabulous Import Page feature.
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.
What do the walls in your home look like? Are they adorned with family photos? Or maybe you have pictures from vacations? Or maybe you’ve been planning to do something but haven’t quite gotten to it? No matter what you currently have on your walls, the Gallery Wall Kit from Anthology DIY is a great way to change things up and this kit has several options that you can display together or separately.
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)
The Our Memories for Life group is making life easier for all of us when it comes to capturing our memories. They’re creating products (cardstock, journal cards, and border strips) that work with previous collections. Brilliant, right? For February, the Wonder Designer Coordinates by Lauren Hinds and the Everyday Birthday 2″ Border Strips by Lauren Hinds include patterns and colors that match already available collections. Let me show you what you’ll find in this collection.
Anthology DIY is happy to bring you a super sweet new batch of canvas designs just in time for your Valentine’s Day decorating! If you haven’t tried Canvas Exchange products, you’re in for a real treat! It’s easy to apply, easy to remove, and can be used over and over again.

The New Year brings with it a sense of new beginnings, fresh starts, and a renewed desire to achieve our goals. If you’re like myself, my intentions usually start out great, but…time soon shows that my intentions and goals may have been set a little too vigorously! One way that I find that really does keep my fresh starts going through the year is to keep things organized and keep myself accountable. The ‘Our Life’ – template and project Series by Brooke Mehr is one of my new favorites! There are a variety of project types that you can customize to help organize your daily and weekly goals and to-do’s.
This 12 x 18 Metal Print template, Our Life Planner by Brooke Mehr (143230), is a fun way to keep track of your general day-to-day to-do’s and items to remember. The spaces on the right side of the metal print showcase your favorite family photos and add a special touch. Who knew that a to-do list could be such a cute display piece?!
2017 is here and I’m ready to jump into all the things I want to do this year. Do you have your list ready?

The Year in a Snap program helps you get photos into your book a month at a time. Keep reading for all the details.
