LouCee has a lovely new, very summery kit called Daisy Chain. It is filled with fun elements and fantastic colors and her Creative Team has really gone the extra mile to offer you some inspiration. This hybrid style page by kpmelly is one of my favorites.
BUT…. I also really love this template style page by vickiyang.
Daisy Chain is so versatile! You can use for beautiful feminine pages but I can also see darling baby boy pages made with this too. It’s still on sale for a few more days too. The collection is 53% off. It includes an alpha, page borders, darling journal mats and more.
In the midst of graduations, summer weddings, and for many the long awaited for, last day of school is… Father’s Day. For all, June seems to be filling with more and more activities and deadlines. It definitely makes it harder to squeeze everything in and give everything the attention it deserves. No doubt Father’s Day can easily get pushed to a back burner but it doesn’t have to be that way. This year can be different. This year will be different for some. This year could be the year you begin to document some photos to back up those stories that you’ve heard a thousand times. We call those “fish tales” in our house because it seems the details get a little bigger every time we hear the story.
Chances are, you already have some great pages made with your best photos. If you don’t, there is still time. Now is definitely the time to take advantage of some quick scrapping with templates or perhaps a ready made brag book. I did a search for Father and found some amazing kits and collections perfect for scrapping any guy.
The Gallery is filled with awesome inspiration too.
I love this page by foxinsocks It’s made with Scrap it Simple #9 by Linda Cumberland Designs.
Here is a more vintage style page by patriciabb. Perfect for documenting the older memories. This one is made with the Days Gone By Collection by The Urban Fairy and Aimee Harrison Designs.
Need a jumpstart? Using a template will help speed things along. You’ll reach your goal much faster and you still have the flexibility to customize your pages. Visit the Quick & Easy section of the store to find a varitey of tools to help you with your project.
A-Manda Creation has all of her Brag Books on sale for 30% off.
Jilbert has Photo Pockets and Photo Pocket Bundles to that make amazing story boards.
There are also several Quick Page Packs suited perfectly for the man in your life.
Whatever you decide, today should probably be the day. Most photo and photo book printing companies can still get your pages or books to you in time. I’ve had great success with Persnickety Prints and Shutterfly (who, by the way is having a 50% off sale).
Be sure to post your pages in the gallery too. Someone else might really need YOUR creative inspiration to get them started.
I love vintage. Heritage. Traditional. I am not a huge fan of soft colors, but they can sometimes make my heart beat fast when combined with the perfect contrasting colors or elements. That is what happened when I saw Laurie by guest designer PattyB Scraps. I was immediately drawn to the ephemera, the beautiful taupe crocheted doily, and the burlap and ribbon flower. Still, I wasn’t sure. It was very blue. And then I saw it. Not in the preview, but on one of the layouts below the preview. There was an old granny looking quilt square.
I’m not a quilter. My grandmother quilted. Mama quilted. I just never picked it up. What made my heart beat fast was the memory. I remember my grandmother always had her scrap pile. Actually, she had two. One pile was for large scraps. These she saved until she had enough to make something. But she also had her tiny scraps pile. She would sew, and cut, and toss the scraps to that little pile. She used tiny scraps as her tester pieces. She would grab a handful of tiny scraps when her bobbin acted up and she would sew back and forth, adjusting the tension dial until she got it just right. Then she would bring back the good fabric and sew away.
That one page made me fall in love with this kit. I mean really, how much closer could I get to vintage, heritage, traditional? I also love this page with the cardboard frame and dark stroke on the word art. Beautiful! Just beautiful.
If you love vintage, then be sure to visit PattyB Scraps Her store is filled with heritage style kits. Her gallery is filled with wonderful pages in a variety of styles. Oh, and don’t let the initial color stop you. After all, it’s not so much about the color as it is about the memory.
I whipped up a page border for you. It’s filled with those messy stitches grandma used to make.
