Scrapbook Pages

From Garden Flowers to Pressed Petals

Remember the craft of drying flowers or pressing them in between the pages of a book? It's been a long time since I tried doing either of these, but I can certainly enjoy the look of pretty pressed flowers using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! The Pressed Petals Suite is filled with loads of pretty products to coordinate with this beautiful paper. Gratitude, support, and love are themes used to describe this gorgeous product suite.

My blog post today contains 2 videos, one an introduction to the Pressed Petals Products Suite, the second from today's Stampin' Peace VIP Group Facebook Live filled with cards and creative ideas. I hope you'll watch and enjoy both! In addition, I've posted pictures of 3 cards using the Pressed Petals Washi Tape that I'll be mailing to 3 lucky viewers of today's Facebook Live.

Pocket Cards for Scrapbook Journaling

I discovered another use for pocket cards and want to share it with your. JOURNALING in scrapbooks. That's right. Put a twist on how you journal in your scrapbooks and memory books by including pocket cards on your pages and then journal on them. You can add simple title or the who, what, where, when on the exposed part of the card and a more personal thought on the inside. You can even use the pocket card to add a "surprise" photo.

PS...If you want to see how I made these pocket cards, see the FB Live video I posted on my March 24th Stampin' Peace blog post:  http://bit.ly/2CxmW3K

Memories & More with My Littles

Last school year, I had the privilege of caring for 3 little ones. Ainsley was in Kindergarten, and twins Ben and Griffin were in preschool. The school year ended and as a special treat, the kids had a sleepover at Mrs. Knabe's house. My Emily, who they LOVE, was also home from college at the time which made the sleepover even more special. Throughout my days spent with my littles, I took lots and lots of pictures. What a year of laughter, fun, and new experiences we shared. As a gift to this wonderful family, I made a Memory Album. I love this photo I received from the littles' dad this week with the comment, "I love watching the kids relive last year's memories". Isn't that sweet? I'm not sure who is enjoying the gift more, the parents or the children. I am so blessed to be able to do what I do and share it with others.  

Confession:  I knew it would be too hard to give this memory book away, so I made a second one for me to keep.  I love having pictures of the many memories made with my little ones.  Now I need to get to work on a memory album of the Thailand trip I shared with my daughters Andrea and Emily.  We have lots of great memories to preserve.

I'll offer both Live Class and Class to Go Options.
