SN@P! Studio...

Just into the store yesterday...SN@P!  Can I just tell you that I love, love, love Paper Pals!!!  I found a fun project, on-line, that I was excited to tackle, and was SO excited when Karen told me that she had the products ordered and they would be into the store any day! That's one of the many reasons I love Paper Pals---new product coming in all the time!!!

Check back...I'll post updates of what I am creating!!

Doodlebug Design "Lovebirds" collection...

Three of my favorites today...1. Doodlebug Design double-sided cardstock, 2. my adorable grandchildren, and 3. Valentine's Day!! Combining these three to make these layouts and cards was SO much fun! 

Doodlebug Design's new Valentine's Day collection "Lovebirds" is beautiful, bright, double-sided cardstock with plenty of pinks and reds...as you can tell, I really do love this collection. Karen just put the papers and embellishments out on the shelves a few days ago and it is my prediction that if you want some, you better get it soon, it's going to fly off the shelves!!

Happy New Year in Scrapbooks!

Happy 2013 to all of you!

New Years is almost a definition of scrapbooking. We look back at what we've done and we look ahead to a bright future too. Scrapbooking encompasses our past and our future too!

Using more of my leftovers from my Pebbles "Seen and Noted" line (I TOLD you I love it!!!) I created a two page layout to reflect on this last year. I included a photo collage as well as a printed out version of one of those fun "year in review" Facebook status compilations. Photos and Facebook statuses are GREAT ways to record a quick synopsis of a chunk of time.

Or if your last year isn't a great one to look back on and you simply prefer to look toward what's ahead of you in hopes of a better year, maybe you want to do something more like this layout I did two years ago:
Focusing on my faith and my future, I made a layout in Jan. 2011 that plans for what's ahead. I used an inspiring bible verse  (plus a quote from Veggie Tales) and a collage of photos where I see calendars throughout my day. The papers and accents I used were definitely a mish-mash of a WIDE variety of products I've purchased through the years... no rhyme or reason except using up the old so I can move on to the new. (I thought that was a suitable tie-in to my layout theme too!)

Hopefully these two different ideas will kick start your year of scrapbooking! Enjoy the last of your holidays and scrap a lot in 2013!
