Hi everyone, and happy Saturday to you! Since it is Saturday, that means more inspiration for your weekend! I always get so excited to share new ideas with you. Get comfy and enjoy some fun projects that I believe will give you a ton of inspiration.
This is a perfect project for me to write about today since it is actually snowing very hard here in Utah right now! 🙂 I would like to share this wonderful layout created by Susie Bentz. Susie created her own grid for this layout and I love the way she was able to incorporate multiple small photos on this beautiful layout. This is such a perfect way to display her winter photos!
I also enjoy traditional pocket page layouts since the purpose of that style of scrapbooking is that you can choose to keep pages simple. Pocket pages are such a great way to complete an album very quickly. You can add as much or as little as you like to one pocket at a time. Susie created this adorable layout in the same form as a pocket page without using a page protector. Come with me over to “My Time To Play” where you will see how Susie created the grid for her layout. You could also make adjustments to this design to fit into a traditional pocket page protector, too, if you prefer.
In just a few weeks it will be Valentine’s Day, so my friends, it is time to start thinking of the fun cards you want to get started on! I have an adorable card to share with you that was created by Heather, who used a beautiful and simple watercolor wash for her background.
Heather created her heart from a wafer die from Simon Says called You Have My Heart. It just wouldn’t be a Valentine’s card without adding a heart. This is such a beautiful handmade card; can’t you just imagine giving this to someone you love for Valentine’s Day? I think it’s a wonderful statement of showing your love to that special person. Click here and I will take you over so you can start gathering everything you will need for this lovely card. Have fun creating!
Here is another fun Valentine’s card; this beautiful card uses a die as a stencil. What a great way of creating a fun background for your card. Hearts are something that never go out of style, and are so fun to use, especially in February. I often use them in my own creating. If you haven’t used this technique give it a try, you will be sure to use this technique more than just once.
I’m sure you, too, have fallen in love with this fun card. I recommend that you click here to stop by and visit Virginia. She has beautiful projects with great instructions, along with a full supply list available just for you.
Not enough wall space or table tops for all of your precious pictures? A photograph lamp is such a unique way to preserve those special memories and keep them permanently on display.
Create your fun lamp by using a few larger photos, more smaller photos, or mix them together. You can print them in color or black and white. Your imagination will be your creation.
