When I buy digital scrapbooking supplies, they are usually on sale, because my favorite supplies are free ones…

My Mom’s Birthday

I sent this digitally scrapbooked print to my mom for her birthday, to update the frame in her room. For more info on this project see my post from this summer: For my Dad!

HAPPY SUMMER!!

It’s the first day of summer! When I lived in Arizona this was my least favorite season, and that’s putting it mildly. I was relieved when it was over, and dreaded it til it came ‘round again. But now that I live in a milder climate, I look forward to all that summer happily brings! Bright colors, mild weather, fun activities, and endless scrapbooking possibilities!! Below are some of my beloved summer events that I’m can’t wait to take pictures of this summer! Fourth of July happenings, hitting the beach, hopping into a cool pool, and taking off on a road trip! So savor every coming day, Happy Summer to all!

Your Camera and You

Super quick scrapbooking tip: Don’t forget your camera, take it EVERYWHERE you go.

Cuz you can’t scrap pictures that you don’t have, so make a special spot in your purse for it, then leave it next to your keys so when you leave it’s automatic to take it with you.

It’s nice to have holiday and event pics, but it’s even funner to have those unplanned everyday photos ♥

On The Go Pics

Super Swift Tip for Scrapbooking Design

I often like to put one really large photo on the first page and then several smaller photos and journaling on the second page. I love this format, it’s my great standby, lately however I’ve been playing around with two large photos. I LOVE the widescreen feature on my camera, letting me capture even more when I snap pictures. So with these longer pictures I’ve been able to put one large whole photo on a layout, it takes up half the page but then, that kinda the beauty of it! Here are some perfect examples:

My old standby layout:

Side 1


Side 2


My newer widescreen layouts:
