Digital Scrapbooking Returns for #yourstampinscrapbooker #HeritageMakers

So ironically just as I was thinking about logging in to my old Heritage Makers account from years gone by, I got an email today that if I do not log in and make a purchase within 30 days my account with go inactive.  So it was a perfect timing reminder that I’m going to get on making a photo book of our UK trip, I wanted to print another copy of a book I created years ago detailing the story of my husband’s grandma’s story of escaping communist occupied Germany in 1949 to Canada.  That is what Heritage Makers is all about, preserving memories.  I also recently was thinking about how you can order those little lunch box note cards. Olivia would love those since she can pretty much read anything now, it’s so much fun!! So I will get some of those for the fall.

Digital scrapbooking has gone through it’s ups and downs in popularity.  When it first came out it grew in popularity very quickly since it was a way for those that didn’t see themselves as very “crafty” or wanting to spend lots of money on supplies to do traditional scrapbooking to create some personalized scrapbooks.  Heritage Makers added an additional incentive to choosing them as your online program of choice, their storytelling features.  That’s what put me over the top then firing off an order to Walmart or Costco for a photo book.  Journalling is an essential part to every scrapbook.  Pictures are great but without the journalling, you lose those memories of dates, quotes and details of the experiences.  Additionally, I chose to use their story book style templates to create my first book back in 2008 of the Holeha branding and it continues to be a topic of conversation around our Holeha dinner table and is on display right between the kitchen and living room for anyone to grab as needed.

The next big creation was when I wanted to write down my husband’s grandmother’s story of escaping communist controlled Germany in 1949 when she came to Canada as a young immigrant woman and settled in Saskatchewan, the end of the world as she saw it at the time.  I wanted to have a record of her story so it wouldn’t get lost and for my children to be able to reread and retell it to their families in the future.  Cory and I managed to get it done before she passed away and then printed copies for ourselves and for his Dad.  Now many years later,  I find myself logging in to print another copy for another family member.

I am not a Heritage Makers consultant so I am not looking to sell anything with this post, just the share the love of memory keeping in another format and to share my continued scrapbooking adventures here in our craft room.  Those adventures also consist of making sympathy cards with old and new stamps and making bookmarks with the new 2017-2018 in-colors.  What are you crafting today?  Are you a digital scrapbooker?  Would love to hear what software/program you use and why you choose it?

****All comments are in my opinion, not based on any current research statistics, just my good ol’ opinion. #yourstampinscrapbooker

Happy crafting!

The trip of a lifetime…and so much to scrap!

I’m back!  With so much to do and say! Firstly, it was a truly amazing holiday with my hubby, a trip come true!  Not sure everyone would say that about wearing mitts and getting rained on but I loved it!! And, honestly, we had great weather for April. It was full week in before we had actual rain and even had the hottest day in London that they’ve had this year, at 25 degrees!!

Now, where to start? I did keep a journal so I can record all our fun memories and observations about the experience so scrapbooking log, check!  I will have lots of photo uploading to do and lots to keep me busy for a while.  As many of you know, I struggled a bit this winter with feeling motivated/inspired to scrapbook, was in a bit of funk as I just felt like I was being repetitive.  I have tried new things and at the last crop, did feel as though I got my “groove back” a bit.

So it’s Monday, back to the real world for all and I’m looking around the house wondering where to start, so why not here with all of you!! You can help me make a to-do list:

  1. Prep/Review upcoming classes/supplies
  2. LOOK AT NEW CATALOGUE ONLINE!! (only for demos as of yet but do fire me an email if you want a copy when I order them in May – if you are regular customer of mine, I will make sure you get one).
  3. Finish the mini album for the bachelorette weekend, it’s next weekend!! Yes, another trip to the airport for a girls’ weekend!

and that’s just the crafting list….

So I’ll love ya and leave ya for today with what I think will be one of my favourite photos of the trip – single track roads, yes, shared with on-coming traffic, sheep running free and an amazing rainbow over the water… a great depiction of life on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.

Everyday Hero Bookmarks for teacher appreciation! #yourstampinscrapbooker

So when the parent council said the theme for teacher appreciation was “super hero” I was pumped to think of a way that I could contribute using our awesome Everyday Hero stamp set!

So when you need to make 60 of something, you think fast, easy, fun and useful?  Bookmarks!!! They are always my go-to when I need to make something for someone as a little gift or souvenir and the scalloped tag topper punch is a must-have for every crafter!

Check out the list of supplies I used to create them in my shop at the bottom of the post! 😉

I also got to spend some fun time in the craftroom with my girls rockin out to #OneDirection (yes, I’m a closet fan).  They are great helpers, loving to hand me the cardstock from the piles and then take the finished products and make new piles.  We are still working on them correctly counting them to make piles of 10 but we will get there, they are only 4. 🙂

Paige is my assistant in this photo.

The finished product sans ribbon on the top.  Decided to just leave them empty for the staff, if they want, they can add their own.

#RowanHouse Crop Creation & my absence…

Apologies for having dropped off the planet the past 2 weeks, I really only have the excuse of feeling distracted by all my trip planning, I really have struggling to think about anything else… but that is for another post 🙂 So here we are, I wanted to share my favourite creation from the #RowanHouse crop on March 11th.

I went to the crop with 2 packs of photos, a to-do list that goes back to last year and I really wanted to do these layouts.  Since the fall, watching Olivia’s love of reading grow so quickly has been amazing.  I feel so blessed to see how well she has done and continues to challenge herself.  She online chapter books, illustrated ones for now but she is only in grade 1! We spend time together reading before she goes to bed, especially when Cory is away working and she and I curl up in my bed and read our books, I so enjoy that time together.  It also allows me to feed my Outlander reading addiction 🙂

So now I’m on to crop #2 of the month, the much anticipated Crop & Create hosted by Scrapbook & Cards magazine at the Carriage House Inn in Calgary.  This one is a 2 and 1/2 day crop!! Yes, so starts Friday night and go until Sunday afternoon.  I have struggled to get excited, I feel that my heart is just not in it.  I struggled a bit with the Rowan House crop too, just haven’t felt myself when it comes to the creating.  We all go through this sometimes, life happens and we have to go with it.  I’m hoping as I start to pack over the next couple of days, I’ll start to see some inspiration come my way.

Thanks to all of you for following, supporting and your patience.
