2012 Cover Page by anke

Anke is just finishing up her 2012 Project Life album and her cover page is simply gorgeous! She used 4 photos to represent the seasons and cropped them into thin rectangles that then blend into the date. She added a simple quote, an oversized bracket and some lightly textured brushes to finish it off and the result is simple and stunning!

Noteworthy | 6.8.2012

School is out for summer! (Well, for a week until summer school begins…) To celebrate, this week in Noteworthy I’m bringing you some summer vacation scrapbooking on the go tips, as well as a few new product announcements, and a few pieces of big news from manufacturers.

The first piece of news falls in the category of silver linings. We learned awhile ago that Hambly is closing down – but before they do, they are having a warehouse sale on June 11th-13th (Monday-Wednesday next week). Sales will not be made online, but only in person at their Santa Clara, CA warehouse. If you are a Hambly fan in the Santa Clara area, this is your chance to stock up before the products disappear for good!

Fancy Pants Designs announced a new collection this week: Country Boutique.

Country Boutique is full of muted neutrals, and is a two-part collection. There are 12 double-sided patterned papers in the first part of the collection, and then the second part of the collection consists of an additional 8 double-sided papers, with a subtle wedding theme. With so many coordinating options to choose from, the collection will be perfect for DIY wedding projects. Continue Reading →

Trend | Buttons

It’s hard to call buttons a trend, as they’ve been a staple for many years in scrapbooking. What I will say is that buttons were going new creative places and popping up in all kinds of interesting ways at this CHA show. Today I am going to take a look at some of the exciting new offerings that were seen at CHA.

The photo above is from the Crate Paper booth, a company that is known for their amazingly detailed and beautiful offerings, and they’ve added some new designs into their mix this show as well.

Here are four new fantastic neutral button sets. Clockwise from top left we have Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 for Blossom Bucket, We R Memory Keepers, Jillibean Soup, and Basic Grey. I really like the unique textures and designs of each set, as well as the fact that they are neutral so they will work with any colors. Continue Reading →


CHA Winter 2012 | Fancy Pants Filter Paper Embellishments (and collections)

Fancy Pants released four new lines at CHA Winter, but my favorite thing was an accessory item included in each colorway.

Filter Paper Embellishments are sort of a cross between a coffee filter, tissue paper, and a printed doily. They can be folded into yoyos, stitched, crinkled, cut, or used as is. There are so many creative and colorful possibilities!
