My photo in Canadian Scrapbooker Basics #4

August 31, 2009

If you’re in Canada, be sure to pick up a copy of Canadian Scrapbooker Basics #4, on newsstands tomorrow. Flip to the back page and you’ll see a picture of my daughter, Jayne, dressed as a scarecrow! I was absolutely thrilled when I got the email saying they wanted to use my photo, and waiting to get a copy of the publication was absolute torture but it finally arrived!

My daughter and I holding the magazine. Doesn’t she look cute!

Do you use Facebook?

August 30, 2009

I use Facebook a lot, to stay in touch with family and friends, and to record a little bit of my life so I can look back on it later. I was in the mood to scrapbook today, and thought I’d try something a little different. I used a few of my Facebook status updates over the past week for the journalling, and found photos to correspond with my updates.

If you’re in a rut for inspiration, why don’t you try it? You could use a single status as your title, or use a week or even a month’s worth of status updates to scrap a little slice of your life. You might not have a photo for every single status update, but that’s ok, just use what you have.

For my layout, I used Page in a Pinch #31 as it has several journalling strips which are perfect for this style of page.

Here’s my page, I’d love to see what you come up with!

I’ve been taking it easy a little this month, so haven’t been doing too much scrapping, but I do have some Friday Dollar Deals for you! This week you can get three kits for a dollar each. Each preview is linked to the kit in the store.

Our Wedding Day – a new layout

August 10, 2009

I don’t often get time to just scrap for myself, but every now and then I like to steal a few minutes, like I did this morning. Here’s a layout I created using Page in a Pinch 33 and A Pretty Little Kit.
