Happy  Monday Creative Scrapbookers! It’s Jayme here with a little peek at what is on my scrapbook table.  I’ve started working on a Christmas gift for my daughter, which may be the earliest I have ever accomplished such a thing. I’m feeling rather proud of myself! So, what is this gift going to be? A recipe book! My daughter comes from a long line of people who love to cook, and she is no exception. She will graduate this year and head off to her adult life soon, so I thought it might be a useful keepsake to have a collection of some of her best-loved recipes from our house as well as those of her grandparents’. I started with a Prima Memory Hardware Chipboard Album and found the perfect paper line from Simple Stories called ‘Apron Strings’. It’s filled with great vintage kitchen images and I love using the…

She’s turning 8. It doesn’t surprise me. She acts 8. And I am excited to see what this year brings. But I just want to freeze time so that I never forget what 7 brought. That’s where mini books help. Hello everyone, Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Srapbooker Magazine blog. Today I am celebrating her turning 8. So let’s do this.  I never over think mini books. In order to start, I make some decisions about the cover. That was easy for me – Stampin’ Up!’s Share What You Love Designer Series Paper with the polka dots catches my eye every time I create a fun project. A bit of machine sewing around the edges gives the cover that finished look I am looking for. If you are eyeing the beautiful butterfly and floral die cuts on the cover, these are from a new Stampin’ Up! product called…

Hello!  Today I am sharing a mini album I created by repurposing the Happy, Happy Christmas My Crush pages from Close to My Heart! The Happy, Happy Christmas My Crush pages come in a package of 30 double-sided, loose printed pages, and 3-ring hole punched, measuring 8 3/8” x 6 7/8”.  They are designed to be used in the Everyday Life albums so you can whip up a quick album, but I wanted to change it up a bit…. check out my 6”x6” mini album. I added embellishments to my mini album from the City Sidewalks Complements, and a few Clear Sparkles here and there, and added colour to some of the Clear Sparkles using green and red ShinHan Touch Twin markers. What a fun way to create something completely unique! Well, that is it for me for today.  If you don’t have a copy of the new Close To…

Here’s the story. My best friend had a baby.  In fact, she had her second little girl. Because this was her second, I told her I was planning something special for her instead of more clothes or toys that she didn’t necessarily need. Sounding good so far, right? Well, I planned to create an album using this Project Life ™ kit: Hello Baby by Stampin’ Up!  I was going to build her a first year album so that all my Mommy friend had to do was slip those pictures in the slots. I am always full of good ideas but I really don’t know where I think time grows… it sure isn’t on trees. At least not on the kind of trees I have in my backyard. … if you ever find a time tree or better yet a money tree, would you mind sending me a treasure map so…
