Don’t Let Your Babies Be JPEGS!

Don’t let your babies grow up to be jpegs! This picture from Power of Positivity says it all. Check out this great article about leaving your pictures on a disc or in a cloud:https://petapixel.com/2019/03/04/the-lesson-from-costcos-photo-lab/?fbclid=IwAR2YRJohhACb3ub3WFRqRKBpaT5PThD5q2fMF2iVQ-6SMNOw1yh5taTVwXs

Use the Craft with Heart subscription to avoid this. When you do the annual subscription, you’ll get a coupon for getting 30 free prints from Persnickety Prints! Your family can look at the pictures and layouts. They can read the stories. They can laugh, joke, and smile over memories. Jpgs can’t provide any of this. And there’s a huge chance finding the picture you want to share, will be a task of hunting through files!

Here are the new layouts:

These layouts go together, lickety split, which I love, because I’m getting things done.

Short Story – Story By Stacy

Short Story – Story By Stacy

We got to create one of the Short Story albums during Convention this summer.  I felt so lucky to get a chance to create this with Stacy Julian!  I confess it was a little stressful to create because you are looking doing a “mash-up” of your photos to tell a short story.  Not chronological.  Gasp!  The only real journaling is on the last page of the book.   Whew, right?!  In the end, I was thrilled by what I had created.  It worked out so much better then I thought it would.

Product Description

Each workshop kit includes:
1 – 6″ × 6″ album
10 – 6″ × 6″ Memory Protectors™
12 – patterned paper sheets; 6″ × 6″
20 – White Daisy cardstock sheets; 6″ × 6″
4 – sticker and die-cut sheets; 6″ × 6″
1 – Black & White Dots
1 – white twine; 1 yd.
1 – black & white gingham ribbon; 3 yds.
1 – Short Story workbook

I’m working on getting my Short Story into a YouTube video so I can share.  I tend to do FB lives then need to figure out how to make them YouTubes.  =)

Sensational September Things To Remember!

Let’s Talk About Class

Let’s Talk About Class

One of the specials this month from CTMH is “You’ve Got Class”.  As we are wrapping up scrapping our pictures of our kids from school or preparing for the next year, this collection offers you the ability to get some of these projects done.  Expand it further, thinking about teacher gifts and you can be ready to go when the kids go back to school in a month (that was a fast summer)!

Preserve the best of your child’s school years with the You’ve Got Class collection of products. This special features a paper collection, exclusive stamp set, and workshop kit all designed to commemorate the passage of those formative years. But act quickly, these products are only available through September 30!

The unique You’ve Got Class workshop contains a set of materials that you can use to create 14 single page scrapbook layouts — an entire album with one page for each school year. The workshop kit also includes our True Fit Folios, giving you a place to preserve precious keepsakes and mementos from each year. Download the instructions for this workshop below!   Many of you ask about True Fit Folios when I see you cropping.  You have all of August to get those ordered!!

 

Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  A heartfelt thanks to all of you wonderful peeps for being being so supportive of my business!

Making Memories

Making Memories

While I’m here at the CTMH Convention making memories, I’m sharing this great layout using the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way and the Studio Sus Workshop.

Because I’m going to use these layouts to scrap pictures from our Appalachian Trail Adventures last year, I really enjoyed getting these layouts done.  These adventures with Aunt Lauren are a once in a lifetime adventure as she does not plan to hike the trail again.  Too much humidity for her!

The Picture My Life cards that you can cut out from one of the papers in the kit provide some great titles and journaling spots.   “Real Authentic Family Memories” with the word “Escape” through it, works so well because out on the trail, it’s real, it’s an escape, and we created some awesome family memories this way.

“Making Memories” is cut from the Thin Cut Alphabet.   Use the Fresh Air Compliments to make layers or clusters in different areas.   I used a number of different embellishments that I had around.  I love scrapping from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Take some time this summer to celebrating making memories.  Time comes and goes fast.
