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.

It’s almost Carnival! Will you be celebrating? Where I grew up, Carnival was important. Important enough to be called the “5th Season”.  I still remember the fun of dressing up, going to all the festivities and getting to keep the costumes afterward to play “pretend” whenever we wanted to.

Here and today, Carnival is almost not celebrated at all. At least nowhere near to the way I was used to and I still miss it a lot. But our daughter had just as much fun playing at make-believe and dress up in every way possible, even without any official occasion. I guess it’s the same with all children, no matter where you live. I just wish I had had Silhouette Cameo then, it would have been a great time saver with all our crafts to make her costumes, lol.

With or without a cutting machine – a fun, fast and very adaptable (as well as affordable) way to play at pretend is creating simple masks. They are soooo versatile. A mask could turn your little guy into a superhero or a wild lion – or your sweet girl into a mysterious princess or a cute little bunny  (or the other way round, lol). Plus they are fun to decorate – even the little ones can use their markers or finger paint on them, older children might love to use glitter paints, feathers or sequins to create their masterpiece.

How about celebrating Carnival with a superhero-family dinner with everybody wearing their superhero masks? Have the kids decorate them while you cook – and don’t forget to mention that broccoli is the only known antidote for kryptonite, lol.

By now you can probably guess where this post is leading – yup, here’s  your freebie, a basic mask to turn you all into superheroes (who gets to be DigiScrap Woman?):

Oh, and you don’t need a cutting machine – the .png file is included, as well, so you can print it out and use the good, old scissor method to cut it out ;D

If you’re hooked now on crafting masks, here are some more options you might want to check out:

Have fun – and remember me if you’re going to celebrate Carnival!

Do you love pinking shears? I do…. but somehow I almost never manage to have a “straight cut” card after trying to give it a decorative border… sometimes it looks more like one of our guinea pigs nibbled at the card, lol. Fortunately the Cameo is coming to my rescue with that! If you own […]
