8 1/2 x 11 Scrapbook Layouts - Jess Crafts Collaboration

Hi Paper Crafters,

This evening I finally had the opportunity to record the scrapbook layouts I had designed using the Jess Crafts digital images. I plan to put together an album for our local grandson to enjoy as I will be filling the album with photos of him and our other long distance grandson. My final step after placing photos will be to laminate the album for him to use freely and store in his toy box here at grandmas.

Please be sure to visit Jess Crafts blog and YouTube channel to see her process videos. She makes great card sets from a single paper pad and typically donates the cards to a charity, children's hospital, etc.

Please be sure to visit her video where she creates cards using the Close To My Heart Beary Christmas WYW kit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WxjpJwoTIY&t=1s

Collaboration - 11 Cards, Jess Crafts Digital Stamps (Sept 2017)

Hi Paper Crafters,

I am so excited to post today about a collaboration I entered into with Jess Crafts using her digital stamps. I reached out to Jess to see if she had interest in teaming up to create and share projects using one another's products. 

I sent Jess the Close To My Heart Beary Christmas Workshops Your Way kit, and Jess sent me several of her digital stamps. Please take some time to view both of our videos as well as take a trip over to Jess Crafts blog to see her amazing work and heart for giving her cards to organizations as donations. Here is the link to her collaboration video.

Today our videos sharing our processes and projects are being revealed on YouTube. Here is my process video where I created 11 cards.

12x12 2-page Scrapbook Layout #37 - Preschool Bears (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

School is in full swing for my area, how about yours? This was my first year in 18 years not to have a son beginning a new school/college year. My boys are now through college and on their way in the vast world of careers. Looking back, that went FAST.

I still remember the first day my husband and I dropped our youngest off at his K-4 class (not preschool) and stood in the parking lot wondering what to do now that there were no kids at home for a few hours. That emptiness did not last long, I soon started back to Jazzercise, coffee dates with friends and eventually subbing in the school cafeterias.

Now if I could just get the boys' school albums completed then I could move on from their school days. I will never be school free since I am a middle/high school teacher, but the pages I will make now are about my experiences.

This layout is to help inspire you to go back to the beginning and document those memories of the first day of preschool whether now or in the past. File used is the "Preschool Bears" from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.




Enjoy!

12x12 2-page Scrapbook Layout #36 - What I Love Most (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Happy Labor Day! Enjoying the last of a 4 day weekend before the school week begins. It has been a great few days in my craft room working on some great projects for upcoming design team posts, a collaboration and workshops. Hanging out in my craft room is one thing I love to do most, but there are two things I love so much more...

My two sons, Josh and James. They are now adults making their way in the career world. I took some time to think back over their 25 and 23 years of life and I was filled with joy and love. I am so proud of who they are and cherish our relationship. When we were asked to create a project titled "What I Love Most" there was no question what my images would focus on... being a mom. It is the BEST job in the world.

Please take a trip over to the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, Design Team blog to see the posts for this week's "What I Love Most" theme. We always welcome you to share your projects with us as well. What are you creating with the LSHD cut/digi files?

LSHD cut files used: "A Mother's Love" "Everyday Moments Love Cards"
All cardstock and inks are from my Close To My Heart independent Consultant website (except retired products)
