Created these with my scraps

If you own the Close To My Hearts How To Program IMAGINE,  as well as Calypso Workshop Your Way, you can easily create this two page spread (with a little tweaking).  It’s the Monologue layout .. one of my favorites!  I used the E1030 Handwritten Print Alphabet stamp set to create “Coolin’ Off.”

20160704_165842

Why stop there if you have more paper to work with? I had some of the ‘suns’ precut and cut “fun in the sun” (all from Artbooking Cricut Collection).  I really liked the sun glasses zip strip … so what do you do?  How about this fun layout using 3×12′s and 2×12′s in the bold stripe pattern.  Cotton candy cardstock under the zip strips and the photos wells are 4×4 and 4×6 from the scraps.  By the time you create all 12 pages, nothing but confetti is left!  Love consuming it all!

Calypso is our Kit of the Month for JULY.  Here’s the original 8 pages I created first before the extras above:

Calypso 1

This kit is a summer keeper and will be retiring on August 31st!  So, I would suggest buying a kit now if this is your kind of thing.  I’m not sure when I’ll be seeing you at a Crop and can’t guarantee I’ll have much left in my inventory until then.

Here’s the details for Calypso:

I can’t take the credit for these beautiful cards, but you could enjoy creating ALL of 20 ideas using Calypso, stamps … details in the shopping list above:

Calypso Card Workshop

Lastly, this Album Project (21 pages in all) was designed by Chris Lothian using the WHIMSY Fundamental Collection (but you could use any of the four fundamentals collections).  Here’s a sample of a two page spread:

Whimsy 1

Isn’t it pretty?  The workshop includes a Title page for your album and 20 pages (that’s 10 (2) page spreads).

As of July 31st, the whole Paper Fundamental line is RETIRING.  All the Cardstock combinations (Enchantment is already sold out); the coordinating sticker packs (4 sticker sheets with LOTS of letters, titles, icons, labels and more) PLUS the Fundamental Assortment line (8 colors) that consists of so many wonderful items (6 bows, wood labels, 8 tabs and a glitter sheet filled with peel and stick stars, hearts, circles, triangles in 3 sizes each):

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!

When you are a scrapbooker ….

there are a few things I find are important to note when taking photographs.  Now, I’m not a professional photographer, nor claim to be one.  But I do feel like a scrapping queen (been doing it a long, long time) and just thought I would talk about it a little.

20160606_070057

You are probably going to be taking a lot of photos this summer, right?  And if not you, then the person taking the photo (with you).  I want you to remind yourself (he/she) to turn the camera and take some VERTICAL shots.  For some reason, people have an aversion to turning the camera … and it really is simple but not a reflex action.  So, a 90 degree turn will do wonders for your layouts!

pumpkin picking

Step away from the object!  Ha! And get some landscaping shots.  I absolutely love 5×7, 6×8 or 8×10′s of fabulous places, interesting things that need to be enlarged, not printed in 4×6′s.  Larger photos can also make a great impact when telling your story of a particular place, scene or celebration.  Perfect for a Title page of your album too. And with 5×7 flip flaps coming in August, the more the merrier … Woo Hoo!

Hawaii 1aa

Tiny toes, hands, feet and oh … details!  Yes!  Sometimes you want to capture the little things (in the case below … priceless facial expressions), the details that describe your story in vivid color or black and white. It can be quite stunning to have these printed in 2×2′s, 3×3′s or 4×4′s squares, and aligned on a page.

20160526_132116-1_wm

Even the littlest details of your vacation, places you travel, road trip, signs, food … oh yeah!  You get me on this?  I love food photos!  LOL … but seriously .. it adds depth, style and true details you can’t write about and see the same way.

20160607_135253

Remember … to capture a ‘photo layout’ in your minds eye when taking shots. Meaning … don’t take 1 or 2 photos and move on to something new. Try to take a sequence of photos that you are truly excited about and think about a layout design (or if you are in my Club and do the pages, think of the photos wells).  I usually try to take a dozen photos (give or take) and then weed thru and only use the best ones.

An example of this would be taking only 1 or 2 shots at halloween.  What am I supposed to do with that?  Scrap it… how?  Give me treats, treaters, candy bags, kid crowd out on the town, visit to gram’s, a fantastic home decorated to celebrate the holiday.  THAT’s what I’m talking about …. BUT unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo of the completed layout. Trust me .. it was cute!  But here’s the original layout and I added my photos AFTER I had created the two page spread.  Scrapping is so much faster this way (I’m always using up my Kit of the Month pages when I can.)

Scaredy Cat 1a

But here’s another example where I did what I said NOT to do. I love, Love, LOVE this layout below.  I had only a few prints of the scene on the left and only a few prints of the scene on the right.  I just wasn’t gong to create 4 pages (3 on each layout … geez, Houdini I’m not!). So using the paper, a few colors, I designed a layout where the TITLE helped to bring it together.  It amazes me that it all worked! I adore when that happens and I use up my scraps too!

20160516_133124Oh, that’s another thing though .. less is more,  Do you really need to print out 5 photos of the same thing?  Yes, if you are capturing a sequence of movement or something like panoramic scenes.  But 5 photos of  the same look or view? Wouldn’t two really good ones for printing be better?  Add perhaps more detailed shots or closeups would help tell the story.  Below is another layout I did some time ago but I did have a lot more photos to choose from, but narrowed it down to these.

DSC_0011

I hear so many people comment on my albums at a crop and the details of the layouts.  How the photos are the main stage of the layout and everything looks really put together (thank you for that!).  I’m not a professional photographer, but I do like to change things up, use a variety of sizes, only PRINT what I need (never 250-500 photos at a time) and enjoy vertical photos even more than horizontal. HA!

By the way … did you notice how many 4×6 photos I had used in the layouts above? Change it up and be versatile with your photos as you add them to your layouts. It definitely becomes more interesting than a splatter of 4×6′s all over the pages.  Just my two cents on the subject … :)

lensSo, as you look through the lens, try to change it up and see things through the perspective of a scrapbooker.  Enjoy the journey, create an adventure and have the photos bring the story to life!

Happy Scrapping!

PS:  If you are a one photo kind of scrapper, my hats off to you! I find that a challenge to do with so much space.  Maybe I’ll get there someday …

Having FUN with CALYPSO, our July Kit of the Month

Calypso 1

That’s right … just by adding some cardstock, you can create 8 pages and I didn’t stamp or Cricut cut a thing!  So, calling all crafters who love the BASICS, you can find it here in this fun, adorable and summery kit!

Pink Flamingos are all the rage, so why not jump right in Pages 1&2.  I added 4×6 and 3×4 flips for more photo storage:

Calypso 2c

Do you ENJOY the tastes of summer coolness with popsicles or ice cream?  If not, you can easily change it to a two page spread for anything, even cruising! (Flips you could add are 4×4 and 3×4 and coming soon .. 5×7 flips!)

Calypso 3

Let’s “BE HAPPY” and “enjoy the little things” in life today … with family, friends or your favorite peeps (hmmm… happy hour?! lol).  4×6 and 4×3 flips could be added:

Calypso 4

These bonus pages are adorable and I love the pineapple theme.  I did add a 3×4 flip flap (4×6 works too) and used Kraft paper, but Desert Sand or Chocolate cardstock would work too.

Calypso 5a Calypso 5b

This kit RETIRES on Aug. 31st or while supplies last.  Here’s the details:

My personal layouts from our Cruise 2016

One of my goals this summer was to scrap for ME!  So, I’m happy to share these photos and ideas with you.  You may find some inspiration … you may find you want to scrap right now instead of waiting for the fall.  I hope these ideas bring you joy! Try to read to the end to learn some fantastic ideas for travel documents/certificates and how to scrap them! Please post any comments, thoughts or questions here too.  Thanks for looking!

First off, two of my favorite flip flaps are being retired:

  • Z1325 Large Assortment (contains (2) each of 4×12; 8×12 and (4) 6×12) … the 6×12 will be sold in a pack of that size only starting in August.
  • Z1726 6 x 6 Flip flaps (contains 10 of 6×6 size)
  • The small assortment is also being retired, but those sizes will be coming out in individual packages starting in August.

I mention this to you because in these layouts, you’ll see I used both the large assortment and 6×6 flip flaps.  So, you may want to pick up a few packs.

This is my title page and I loved using the 6×12 flip flap to add more photos of this large ship.  Stamping the title using the Handwritten Alphabet (which you’ll see throughout my album) in two colors is always more interesting.  I love it!

20160619_110832

 

20160619_110843

Below I used a 6×6 flip flap.  What I love about it is the various ways you can add photos underneath.  Please NOTE … I create flip flap TABS/Lifters so you know to open up my flips.

20160619_111006

BTW, The Haven was a very special suite I earned (only 3 consultants had the privilege of this!) and it was absolutely the BEST experience ever!

20160619_111024

I had 3 other gals on my team earn this fabulous vacation for two and we celebrated in style!  I love how this came out … the Anchor is from Artistry cricut collection and the card below it is what I did with the ‘negative’ of the blue anchor. If you know me, you know I try to use up all my scraps!

20160619_111102

My anchor card

Below the right page showcases a 4×12 and 6×12 flip flap.  I love how this turned out and what’s underneath it:

20160619_111436 20160619_111452

This is using a modge podge of papers (scraps) and I love how it came out .. .hey .. no flips on this one!

20160619_111530

Lastly, and most importantly … if you like to keep travel brochures, certificates (graduation, birth, etc.) and want to see the best way to incorporate them into your album, this is FOR YOU!  This is the last page (using (2) 8×12 flip flaps as well) of my album.  It is kind of a mix of favorite photos, memorabilia, and documents from the trip that I really wanted to showcase in one place.  So I put (2) 8×12 flip flaps together to be glued to the last 12 x 12 page of my book.

20160619_111824 20160619_111836 20160619_111844

These 8 x 12 flip flaps are perfect for really scrapping the details in a way that shows it off, rather than an afterthought.  I love how it came out.

I apologize for not having the best quality of photographs of these layouts, but it’s been very sunny here and I wanted to share this with you ASAP!

Happy Scrapping and 4th of July!

WOWZA! Super excited and wanted to share this ….

I’m back from a fantastic convention in sunny Orlando, FL!  I have some important items to share with you but first … would you mind if I shared that I’m … Tickled pink

WOW ….WOW ….WOW …. I finally sat down and looked through both books: Annual Inspirations 2016/17 and Holiday Expressions.  Stunning doesn’t even adequately describe the plethora of new products before my eyes!

Rustic Home & Uptown Fundamentals are my favorites! The Complements are so lovely …bigger, better with less little pieces (thank you CTMH)!

And let’s REJOICE for FAUX LEATHER ALBUMS in 6 solid colors!  Pocket plus memory protectors for post bound albums that will help you include PML cards for traditional scrappers.

You’ve been asking for one size packages of flap flaps and you got it!  In many sizes with *new* 5x7s too! And CTMH listened .. you said you wanted the adhesive strip along the ‘side’ so you have two options when using 4×6, 5×7, 3×4 for either a vertical or horizontal photo.  Yes!  These new products go live on August 1st!  So stay tuned!
