There are a few different sketches to share with you today. One you'll find over at Jillibean Soup, and the other is found at a friends' blog. Check them out here and here. Both these sketches look uber easy to recreate AND fun to play with at the same time! I'm thinking I'll tackle them both in the very near future.
Next, do you enjoy reading the Creating Keepsakes magazine, but would like to find an easier to way to take it along with you? Creating Keepsakes is now online- and the digital issues are packed full of extra's that you won't find in print issues. Its easily added to your hand held device using the App store (available for the iPad, iTouch, iPhone and other devices as well). Once you've purchased your subscription (either print version or digi), you're on your way! If you don't have a subscription, like me, its seriously something to consider. I'm definitely thinking about it! For more information, head over to their blog!
**Mark your calendars now** for National Scrapbooking Day, which is coming up on May 4th. Now that I know what the date is, I will start planning my own day of fun. But, if you choose not to play along with me, there are a multitude of others that you COULD!!! One of them will be with Echo Park and Big Picture Classes. They'll be having an online crop that will surely be an absolute blast. There'll be challenges, chit chat, and a ton of fun! Want to check it out? Here's their info!
Everyone is in different places in their scrapbooking. Some people are still scrapbooking their Christmas pictures, or Easter pictures; others are scrapbooking about summer vacation- dreaming of the warmer weather and happier times that lie ahead of us still. If you're in that boat, then this layout might interest you! Collect some ideas from a layout that was posted to the Carta Bella blog today. Inspirational, for sure!
Have a look at these gorgeous spring colors! Wow, they're so yummy, I could eat them!
Lastly, as a precursor to my upcoming series, Creating Keepsakes is a terrific place to go to find inspiration, learn new techniques and try out new scrapbooking styles (or, maybe challenge yourself to try them!) If you find yourself in need of help, try them out!
