Monogram Cards for Mother’s Day

My mom asked me to to make her some Monogram cards for Mother’s Day.  I love how these came out and they were super easy in Artisan!  Click on each image to see them in Forever.  I’d love to make some for you or your mother – just let me know!

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.

Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day and I’m spending it at our new mountain house doing a bunch of yard work.  As I mentioned last month, the Tree of Life at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite parts of that park.

However now that Pandora is open at the same park it’s even more interesting and fun!   Avatar is one of our favorite movies and the environmental theme is really thought provoking.  I’m so glad that Disney Parks is taking that theme to heart and has so many initiatives to promote conservation, including some great solar initiatives!  Click here to read all about those.

Layout a Day: LOAD218

It’s almost time for another month of layouts!  I’m truly looking forward to LOAD218-Choose Your Own Scrapbook Adventure.   From what I can tell, we’re going to be able to choose from a variety of prompts each day.  I love having choices so this sounds really right up my alley!

I’m currently getting organized using Historian.  I’m loading my pictures from the past several months as well as tagging them and giving them star ratings.  I find this helps me stay on track during LOAD and allows me to focus more time on scrapbooking.

Did you know that LOAD218 is open to anyone and everyone?  If you’re looking to kick start your scrapbooking for this year, consider this challenge.  There’s no judgement for doing one layout or all 28 or something in between.  It’s still more than nothing.  So what are you waiting for?  Join us!  Make your commitment in the comments and then go sign up.

Forever Friday: Finish in Four Part 3

Who wants to make a 21-99 page book in January with me using Forever Print!?  Join me each Friday, this month, right here to get a quick assignment for the week.

You don’t have to write an essay, but consider including who, where, when, why, what on each page or two page spread. Will those looking at your book need you there to tell the story? Or will the photo book INCLUDE your story?

The online templates don’t have a lot of space for journaling so it won’t be a difficult task. If you’d like to include more, consider creating a text box in MS Word and then using the snipping tool to save it as a jpg. Fitting into a photo opening can be a little tricky, but it can be done.

Share a screenshot of a page in your book in the comments.
