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?

 

Giving the Gift of Forever

Who do you know who would love to have the peace of mind of their memories saved safely and permanently?  Own your memory storage rather than renting from the other popular online vendors.  Check out this short video showing how to Give the Gift of Forever.

Let me know who’s on your Forever gift list!

Happy Holidays!

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH FOREVER? ~ Personal Documents

How often have you needed an important document but it’s tucked away safe at home?

Forever Storage is a great place to store our most important documents for those times when we may need them.

Forever Permanent Storage keeps everything in one place and available to us when we need it the most.

After signing up for your free account, consider creating an album titled “ME”, for example. In this album you can put nested albums of each member of the family. Then finally add important documents in their respective folders.

Did you know that you can even share a copy of a document and send it in an email. How convenient is that?!? What documents will you save in your Forever Permanent Storage Account?

From September 3 – 10, 2019 all storage accounts are 33% off!  Click here for for 2GB free.

Make it Monday: Thankful for deliveries

I saw this idea on Facebook and knew right away that I wanted to do this.  We have packages delivered year round but like many, lots more this time of year.  This was super easy to implement and so far, our delivery people have been enjoying it!

Do you give service providers holiday gifts?  I remember my mom giving little gifts of ‘nips’ from the beverage store (you know, a candy cane shape with mini spirits).  She would leave them for the postal worker, trash pickup and lawn service people.  How do you thank your team?  Share your ideas in the comments!

Happy Holidays!

Using Overlays in your Digi Layouts

I wanted to share a video I created to help showcase using overlays in digital layout with Artisan.

I’d love to see how you are using overlays, link up your layouts so we can be inspired.

Have you seen this great Mega Kit with Overlays, Masks and More?  I love the collaboration with Little Feet Digital Designs and Dagi’s Temp-tations.

Layout A Day starts May 1st – Legends of Hollywood

I’m so excited about May’s Layout a Day (LOAD) theme – Legends of Hollywood!  I love the movies and am looking forward to see how they inspire our layouts in May.

The silver screen has enchanted audiences since its beginning. Walk down memory lane, or Hollywood Boulevard, as we celebrate some of the greatest films ever created, and use their stories to inspire our own.

Forever Friday: Re-organizing Pictures

This is the first in a series of posts that I’ll do to help you complete a photo book using Forever Storage and Forever Albums. The first step is to put all the photos into an album.  From there, you may want to re-organize them into the order you may want to see or use them in your photo book.  This [less than 2 minute] video will show you how to re-organize pictures in your Forever album.

The next step will be starting the album by adding pictures to your Forever Project.  Stay tuned!

Are you using cloud storage for your photos?  Have you read their privacy policy?  Check out Forever’s Guarantee and consider owning your own piece of the cloud instead of renting…. and it’s 20% off right now!!!
