Thankfulness...it simply means focusing on the important things in our lives that we are grateful for. It's A choice. It's OUR choice. And it does our souls good to focus on positive things, doesn't it? (slatted sign created by kerryskronicles)
Will you join us in focusing MORE on the positive, LESS on the negative, being HAPPIER, living with a PURPOSE, through-out the month of November? You can even make a thankful Prima project and share with us! Then we will share with others. And make them happy too! (Here are a few projects to get your HAPPY creativity flowing!)
Are you ready for some NEW inspiration filled with the warm colors of fall? Today we are pulling a few of our favorite pins to add fun, autumnal accents to our scrapbooking projects! We asked three of our wonderful ladies to pick their favorite fall Pin from Pinterest and spin it into something Pinspirational!
"I fell in love with the colours in this pin - the beautiful pop of orange combined with the turquoise and hints of white wood, which I've incorporated into the layout via the Forever Green paper. The general theme is shadows and light, which is very Autumnal in itself. For luxurious texture I've used crackle paint, glass glitter, and mica flakes interspersed around the flowers." Fran
Isn't it exciting when you try something new? For some reason it perks up your desire to scrap, and freshens your outlook on products and techniques!
So which trends do YOU like to follow? Is it in home decor, high fashion, art movements, or simply what's trending on Pinterest? All of these arenas (and so many more) can provide a breath of fresh air into our normal papercrafting styles. To get your trend watching a little boost we asked three of our expert scrapbookers to spot a trend that REALLY spoke to them! Here's what they found!
Inspiration is everywhere! But then we sit down at our scrap table, or on the floor like SOME of us prefer...ahem...to find out our inspiration has suddenly escaped out the back door! What to do?!? Try picking a favorite layout that you have seen recently that really spoke to you! It could be the placement of each element you love, or the sweet photo, the gorgeous colors...or even the products which were used in such a creative way that is simply genius. What jumped out at you? Pick one or two elements from the project and use that as a jumping off point! Pretty soon your creativity will come back in full force.
The Bloom Collection, by the talented Jamie Dougherty is fresh and fun with stencils, beautiful Bloom Girl stamps, canvas tote bag, and so many other fun elements! Today we want to show off a few of our favorite pieces...and bring you our #MyBloomBag contest! Just think of the million ways you could decorate and use this wonderful canvas tote!
