Take a few minutes for yourself today and enjoy some downtime. I have some beautiful projects in store for you and I hope you will enjoy these unique ideas and be filled with wonderful inspiration.
Do you love traveling? Not sure how to add the memorabilia from your trips to your layouts? Meghann’s beautiful layout will give you some tips and ideas how to create a fun page about one of your favorite traveling spots.
Creating a complementary page to the layout will allow you to add more photos and journaling, including maps and more memorabilia to this two-page spread.
Meghann used the “Escape the Ordinary” collection from Pinkfresh Studio. This is a fabulous collection for travel layouts. Scrapbooking is not just about the photos and embellishments, but the meaningful story about the photos. After all, isn’t that why we scrapbook, to preserve and record those special moments of life? Click here and you will be able to watch a video created by Meghann on how she created this layout. You can also see more of Meghann’s projects by following her blog Brioche And Blessings. You are sure to be inspired by her wonderful talent. This fabulous layout was in the issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine.

Recently I went to a Parade of Homes show here in Utah. I have to say I have never seen so many cute benches in all my life. Attractive benches are a big rage right now. I couldn’t wait to get home to start searching for the perfect bench for my home. You see benches on the porch, in entryways, and at the end of beds. Not only are they adorable, but very practical as well. I stumbled onto this fun Do It Yourself tutorial from Christy James. I have to say… this was it! Why buy one when you can create your own, in your own colors, and the exact size that you want? I couldn’t wait to go thrift store shopping for a fun headboard to turn into my bench.
You will be so surprised how many old bed frames there are out there. It was so hard to pick out just one that would look the best in my home. I can honestly say they are very inexpensive as well. So my friends, click here and Christy will walk you step-by-step on how to turn a headboard into a beautiful bench. She will give you all the instruction you will need to make this a fun and simple project. For more creative DIY projects, be sure to visit her blog Confessions Of A Serial Do It Yourselfer. You are going to have so much fun creating this fun project. Enjoy!
