Today on our blog, Cathy Caines shares her tips and techniques for creating 8.5″ x 11″ scrapbook pages.   ‘I had been waiting for this. This was the part of the road trip on my old stomping grounds in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.  We had pitas and marched down the main road to check out Jane’s thrift shop.  Before we left, I took a moment to take in the view.

Today we welcome Adel Otto as our guest blogger who designs wonderful scrapbooks with pocket pages. I’m probably a Canadian memory keeper just like you: a dark roast coffee drinker, Netflix voyeur , a teacher, a wife, and a mother to four teenagers. My memory keeping style is “pretty storyteller”, so I like to capture adventures, transformations and celebrations in a lovely, bright and layered way. I can be found sharing on Instagram  aottocafe and at my blog “Studio Latte.” Are you head over heels over pocket pages? Maybe you can’t believe you are finally recording your stories again because of Project Life or you love the Simple Stories Snap albums or Studio Calico Handbook.
