Happy Fall! Since finishing up our Scrap-Your-Stash Summer Saturdays a couple of weeks ago I’ve been throwing myself into creating for fall using the beautiful new Gather Together collection from Creative Memories! I’ve shared three different projects over this past week, but you may have missed them since they were featured elsewhere. Here’s a bit of a recap with links to the projects…
1) This past Friday night, the team at Creative Life Scrapbooking and I held a virtual PJ Party Crop! We had so much fun hosting six hours of virtual scrapping with a different Gather Together project featured each hour! I shared some cute Treat Boxes (shown above) made from Bronze Shimmer Cardstock, some Gather Together paper scraps and the beautiful Gather Together Layered Embellishments with rose gold trim…divine!
I posted the project on the CLS Facebook page as a slideshow video, but had many requests for a handout that showed the pictures and instructions. I’m always happy to oblige, and you can now download the free handout here. Have fun making these cute boxes!
2) Last weekend I had the chance to travel to Portland, Oregon to attend and speak at a conference for Creative Memories Advisors. I spoke about the idea that you can take a simple sketch and create a variety of layouts based on it, ranging from Effortless to Enhanced to Elaborate depending on the amount of time you have and how much product you want to use.
I was happy to test these creative approaches out while creating three layouts for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog using Gather Together. Here is the most Elaborate layout I made…full of gorgeous colors, textures and details!
Make sure to head over to the CSM Blog see all three of the finished layouts, and then download the free handout (the same one I shared during the CM Advisors conference) featuring the sketch and details of how to adapt it to create Effortless, Enhanced and Elaborate layouts…you’ll find it in the OCM Shop.
3) I also introduced the 31 Thankful Days Project on my own OCM Facebook Page and Instagram feed last week. This project will explore thankfulness, gratitude and blessings with daily prompts to help us create a mini Gratitude Album with the Gather Together collection. The project will kick off on October 1st and run each day during October. Head over to join the event on my Facebook Page now to get additional details and the supplies list so you can be ready come October 1st!
