    Love These | Label Stickers

    It's been a few years since I last attended the big Craft And Hobby Show. Because of that I don't always see what's new in terms of cool memory keeping products unless I spend some time looking around online or reading message boards. I was doing a bit of shopping at Two Peas yesterday (and starting to work on a bit of Dece... Read More

    Hello again Three Things. In the past, Three Things has focused specifically on three scrapbooking products that have caught my attention. I'm bringing back this series with an expanded focus on products/topics that have something to do with memory keeping, scrapbooking, and/or living an inspired, creative life. This week... Read More

  3. Three Things: May Favorites

    Three Things: May Favorites

    Over the past week I put together ten layouts for my column & a feature article for the upcoming October issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. It's been awhile since I put that many layouts together in a short time period and it felt really, really good. My office is still recovering from the creative mess. I used to b... Read More

  4. Three Things + 1 : Adhesives

    Three Things + 1 : Adhesives

    Adhesives aren't glamorous but they are totally necessary for the stuff we create. In a wonderfully simple world one type of adhesive would work great for each step of a project but the reality is that different adhesives are needed for different parts of the process. Here's the four I use the most: 3L Scrapbook Adhesives ... Read More

  5. Three Things : Classic Letter Stamps

    Three Things : Classic Letter Stamps

    (1) Educational Insights See and Stamp Jumbo Lowercase • I think these, along with the uppercase set, are probably my favorite stamp set right now. (2) Hero Arts Basic Uppercase Letters • a classic wood-block sans-serif mini-set. I also love their Printer's Type Alphabet. (3) Studio Calico's Noah clear stamp set • these... Read More

  6. Three Things : On My Table

    Three Things : On My Table

    My work table is a total disaster right now (not to mention the floor around my table). Piles of things I have pulled out from the lockers; pieces of paper with notes jotted on the front and back of concepts and ideas I want to implement (these notes are currently keeping me sane); punches; adhesive; paint. Projects in pro... Read More

  7. Three Things: Personal Favorites

    Three Things: Personal Favorites

    In going back over some of my past layouts recently I noticed a few product trends that are used over and over again. We all have them - things we stock up on, things we can't seem to make something without. There are certain products I go through phases with (like the scallop punch I keep using recently), but these products... Read More

    Three Things

    I am continuing to gather up bits of pink and bits of texture as I go about beginning to create pages for Anna. So drawn to these soft pinks right now. 1. Madeline Butterfly Chipboard Box : Butterflies are just a basic for me. These ones are double-sided and many of them have little gems already attached. Love the mix of patt... Read More

    Three Things : New Favorites (+ new stamps)

    Amy Butler for K&Company Die Cut Butterflies : Easily punched right out, these butterflies would be great added to a layout, minibook, or even something like this past weekend creative project. Making Memories Flower Patch Layered Buttons : Just love the spring colors and layers of stuff on these buttons. Jenni Bowlin Of... Read More

  10. Three Things : For the Love of Yellow + A Layout

    Three Things : For the Love of Yellow + A Layout

    It's usually about this time of year that I start longing for some some lovely spots of yellow both in my house and in my work. I've definitely been into pink lately, but as soon as I start seeing yellow tulips and daffodils in the store I start getting excited about the crisp, fresh nature of spring. There are definitely no... Read More

  11. Three Things : just a little more love

    Three Things : just a little more love

    I couldn't help it. One more week of love-related products here on Three Things. Maybe it's because this baby's due date is February 14th or maybe it's because of all the pink stuff that has been making it's way into our home. Regardless, I am loving anything with pink and hearts right now and that is really not normal for ... Read More

    This week we are taking a peek at a couple Valentine/Love related products. Look for another round of three next week - there are just too many cool things out there for creating projects that celebrate those you love. • Thinking a little tiny bit about Valentine projects (must be all the pink).
