Sundays With Lorraine

Hello, my crafty friends, and welcome back to the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo blog.  With spring in the air and Easter right around the corner, I thought you might be inspired by the following projects. It’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy a little creative therapy.

Jubilee (Easter) Mini Album by Gloria Stengel

Many of you know that I am a huge fan of creating my own mini albums and with a little help from our creative friend Gloria you, too, can make your own customized mini album complete with plenty of interactive pull-outs and flaps that can hold lots of photos and journaling. This is one tutorial that you don’t want to miss, so click here and I’ll escort you over to Authentique’s blog. Be prepared to take notes as this is one album that you will definitely want to create for yourself.

I can’t think of a better way to decorate your album than with Authentique’s adorable Easter line titled Jubilee.  Click here and I will be happy to take you over to Authentique’s blog so you can check out the entire Jubilee Collection.

How perfect would this new collection be for all those priceless photos that you will be taking Easter day and well into spring?  Wouldn’t you be the hero when you gift one of these sweet mini albums to someone special?  After all, the gift of memories is priceless.

Easter Blessings Tags by  Laurie Schmidlin

Aren’t these adorable tags perfect for your Easter baskets or even to use as place cards for that special Easter brunch? They just make me smile and I couldn’t resist sharing them with you today. For complete details, I highly recommend stopping by Laurie’s blog Just Give Me Stamps so you can see how easily these sweet tags come together.

How Do You Organize Your Ribbon Collection?

Are you ready to do a little spring cleaning in your craft room? I know I am!  If your ribbon collection looks like the one below, then you will love the tip that Valerie Andrieux has to share.  I know creative people sometimes get a bad rap for not being ducks in a row organized.  Personally, I choose creativity, but that doesn’t mean I give up on being organized.  It just takes a little more effort on my part whereas being creative just comes naturally.  If you happen to be gifted with both creativity and being extremely organized, I bow to you, you truly have it all.

With a little help from our creative friend Valerie, you, too, can have your ribbons, twines, and fibers all neat and tidy.  Isn’t it a beautiful sight?

This one is definitely on my crafting bucket list. Doesn’t it make the creative process a lot more enjoyable when you know where everything is? I highly recommend stopping by Valerie’s blog anytime you are in need of some serious inspiration.

Sheet Pan Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Potatoes

My family loves this easy to make chicken dish and I love the fact that it all cooks together on one cookie sheet. The most time-consuming part is flipping the potatoes so that they crisp on both sides, I think you can handle it.  😉  I typically add some roasted asparagus on the same cookie sheet and call it done but you can serve whatever veggies your family likes. Click here and I will take you over to Creme De La Crumb’s blog so you can print out the recipe. Tiffany is the master of creating easy to make meals with ingredients you most likely have on hand.

Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy our creative time together. Have a wonderful week and I’ll meet you back here next Sunday. Hugs to all!

    I started out using the wrap-around-the-card method of organizing my ribbons. But the down side is that the ribbons then have creases in them from
    the fold lines. I switched to round cardboard tubes such as from paper towels, set them on end in a box or on dowels to keep them upright…I like this method much better so far,

    Can’t wait to try this recipe. We’re going to try it tomorrow. Love good food, but hate cleanup. One pan baking is right up my alley.
