iNSD Celebrations

Happy interNational Scrapbooking Day!  How are you celebrating?  I was supposed to be hosting a weekend event in the mountains in Northern California but that was canceled so I’m crafting at home.  Here’s a few things that I’m doing today.  Comment with what you’re doing!

Close to My Heart all day crop.  I purchased the Card Kit #1 and will be following along making that.

Creative Memories Virtual Crop. I’m considering using one of these sketches for my Layout of the Day today.

Layout a Day Challenge started yesterday so I’ll make sure to finish at least a layout today!  Join this weekend with promo code BEATLES25 and save 25% (through May 3, 2020).

I’m also going to spend some time outside in the yard and getting some sun!

Join my Forever VIP Group  and my Scrapping Challenge Group for more inspiration!

Monogram Cards for Mother’s Day

AutoBooks are here

Forever released AutoBooks on Friday.  This is an easy and quick way to do a Photo Book.  You upload your photos, preferably to an album and then use the AutoBook feature.  The system will automatically place your photos into the book.  You can preview it and change layouts, as you like.  Add text to the bottom of pages or insert a full page of text where you like.  Truthfully, it’s meant to be super simple.  No embellishments, simple captions and it’s done.  I love this option for vacations, weekends away or events!  Take a look at this walkthrough video and let me know what you think.

Click here to see the video.

If you are new to Forever and create your free account here, you’ll receive a $15 coupon after you confirm your email.  This could be enough to make your first photo book free! (Depending on the size and cover you select).

If you are already a Forever customer, you can earn $15 coupons by referring your friends.

 

Staying Crafty While At Home This Month

I know that many have some extra time to fill while at home over the next few weeks.  Here’s some no (or low) cost crafty ideas that have come across my desk.  I’ll add to this list as I learn about more.  Feel free to add your ideas to the comments!

Creative Memories has started their own TV Channel – CMTV. 
By the way, if you wish to buy some CM stuff, please use my link here.  Thanks, in advance!

Every March there’s a free scrapbooking challenge called Calvinball based off the same named cartoon/book.  Although points are accrued, it’s still fun to join at any time of the month!  Click here for more info.

I’ve only recently discovered Brit+Co and their classes are free through the end of the month.  Here’s their info about that.  The catch is that you have to enjoy/view them by the end of the month as well.

I love my traveler’s notebook and I think Layle Koncar is one of the best.  She’s doing free classes the next two Saturdays and I hope to join in on these!  Click here for more info.

Digital Art to use on your layouts to document this unprecedented time.  Click the image for more information.

 

As of right now, I am still planning on my in-person events as posted here.  I’m particularly interested in who might want to join us in Alaska?

Streaming Video from your Forever Account

Did you know that you can store and stream videos from your Forever Account?  Today we’re taking more and more videos so it makes sense to ensure they last a lifetime in your Forever account.  Here are some more information about videos in your Forever account.  And keep reading to see a special holiday offer for today (12/24/19) only!

  • If you are a Forever Storage owner you can store videos in your account, just like pictures, audio files and important documents in pdf format.  There’s NO extra cost to do this.  To view your video(s) you will have to download them OR upgrade your Forever account to a streaming video account.
  • Why would I upgrade to a streaming video account?   This allows you to view (stream) the video in HD quality directly from your Forever account.  Additionally, when you share videos, recipients will be able to view (stream) them.  Whether or not they are Forever account holders.
  • How is this different from uploading my videos to other providers?  The #1 reason is to protect your Digital Rights.  Forever is committed to keeping your memories secure and allowing you to control what you do with them.   There’s many other technical reasons but I’ll let you see that on Forever’s Website here:  www.forever.com/video.

Without Video Plan

With Video Plan

We recommend the Premium (Streaming) Video Plan to everyone who wants to get the most out of their video memories by saving, sharing, and viewing them online. However, if your goal is simply to archive the original videos at FOREVER and watch them occasionally, you can do that without the Premium (Streaming) Video Plan. It’s your choice.

And TODAY ONLY (12/24/19) the lifetime Video Plan is 55% off – but for the first three people who purchase, I will also gift you a $100 Gift Certificate.
