Be Pinspired – Back to School

Earlier we talked about some great back to school items from the store along with some inspirational layouts from the gallery. Today we are going to take a look over at Pinterest to get some more inspirational ideas for back to school. (images are linked!)

Most all of these seem to be done the traditional way, glue and paper. You can take most any craft and put a digital scrapbooking twist on it. All you need is a bit of inspiration, your imagination, and a printer! I chose all these ideas with that in mind! They could all easily be turned to a digital scrapbooking craft.


 

Think about all those lovely papers you have in your digital scrapbooking stash! Think about how standout and amazing this hand-print flower would be with those papers!

 

This is more of just and idea for a photo. You know, so you can scrap it! I love love love this idea!!

 

This one is my favorite of today’s pins. You can do every single bit of the paperwork on this via digital scrapbooking. You just need to pick your size, decorate, print and laminate. My son loves to read and loves finding fun bookmarks. This is on my to-do list!

 

These are super cute and look like they would be pretty easy as well. Especially since you can do most of the paper-working via digital scrapbooking!

 

Here is another great idea for the 1st day of school photo. That sheet would be super easy to make in photoshop with your lovely digital scrapbooking goodies as well!

I know this isn’t the longest blog post ever. I hope you got some ideas from it and found some inspiration for your back to school projects!

Let’s Celebrate Back to School

Designer Sneak Peeks – August 3, 2016

Well, here we are at the beginning of August. School starts soon for most. I know some have already started. This year is the first time in 18 years that I don’t have a child starting school of sometime. It’s a little odd. Let’s see our sneak peeks for this week. I see some school kits and some travel kits.

Remember to check back here tomorrow to see that our wonderful CT girls have created with these kits.

 

Fresh Baked: August 01, 2016

It’s AUGUST! Time to start planning FALL and the cooler temps. Time for going back to school. That doesn’t mean that the designers are ready to give up those bright colors, just yet. August’s buffet is full of fun and vibrant colors, and that’s not the only series that is like that. August is going to be gorgeous, I can just tell!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

*NEW Buffet Bundles* Take a look at our all new Buffet Bundles! Each buffet for 2016 will have a sub category for our Buffet Bundles. One easy click to add bunches of Buffet goodies to your cart, and an amazing value too!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

The designers definitely each made the palette their own and came up with some gorgeous designs, each unique but working so well with the other designers’ creations

In the Spotlight –

GingerScraps has the best praise team! There is never a layout without love in the gallery. Not just that, the love they leave is more than just a few passing “beautiful” and “love it!” comments. They take the time to leave thoughtful comments on the layouts. They have even been known to read journaling too!

With that in mind, we are going to take a look at and give love to the much deserved praise team! We are going to start out with non-other than the Lead Sugar Cookie herself.  Lydia…aka scrappinbella!

Lydia is one of the nicest ladies you will meet around scrappy town. She is also a talented scrapper! I am going to showcase (and leave love that the praise team would be proud of!) some of her layouts for you.


What a cute photo!!! I just want to give that puppy a hug. I really like the great balance this layout has with the clusters on each side. Great layering and paper choices as well!

 

I am a sucker for a blended photo layout. Especially when they are as well done as this one! What a cute photo; and great choice in making it black in white. It really allows for the color photo and the reds and greens to really pop!

 

Wow! That is so cool that he got to go there. Great photo of him on the course as well. I like that she chose to make the photo the focal point of the layout.

 

Another great golfing layout. Great example of taking a kit and scrapping outside the theme of it! I really like Lydia’s choice of paper on this layout. Fantastic use of the paper as well with all that great layering!

 

This layout grabbed my attention in the gallery. Such beautiful orange throughout and lovely photos! I like who the pretty flowers are the focus of the layout. With great title work and nice cluster at the bottom!

Not only is Lydia one of the sweetest ladies you will meet in the scrapping world, her gallery has some amazing inspiration! These are just a drop in the water. Go check out her GALLERY and look around. If you find yourself scraplifting and finding something that speaks to you in inspiration, let us know! Come back and link up your layout. We would love to see it. Happy Scrapping!

Fresh Baked: July 29, 2016

July is almost over! How is this even possible? The designers are getting ready for August (and trust me, that buffet is GORGEOUS), but they’re not forgetting this last Fresh Baked of July! There are some gorgeous templates and some beautiful kits being released. Even a few other items to make putting those layouts together even easier!

Remember when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great collab!

Designer Sneak Peeks – July 27, 2016

Wow – here we are at the end of July. Friday will be the last Fresh Baked of the month. How crazy is that? We’re officially well past the halfway point of the year. I know I’ve whined before, but it’s HOT here. I think I’m ready for fall. How about you?

Be Pinspired – Summer Crafts

Summer is in full swing here in the states. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for school to start back. With that in mind, we are going to get some inspiration from Pinterest today. Today’s post isn’t strictly about digital scrapbooking. However, I think you could use just about any of these ideas with your digital scrapbooking stash.

So let us get started! All images are linked. To start out with we are going to take a look at a fun list of scrapbook layout titles. I am awful at titling a page. Here are some great examples to help out!

 

To go right along with these titles, here are some fun fonts to use on your digital scrapbooking layouts about summer (or any layout really!) The “Sunshine” using the Janda Stylish font is awesome and totally going to be on one of my next layouts!

In my search for fun summer time craft and scrapbook ideas, I found this really cool traditional layout with movie ticket stubs! How cool is that? I got to thinking how that could be taken and turned into a digital scrapbooking layout. Here is the pin that got those ideas flowing.

To round things up, here are some fun paper, paint and glue crafts for the summer. Put your gray matter to work and see how you can flip these to digital scrapbooking crafts. I would love to see how you do it!!

 

 

Now, get to scrapping and crafting!
