Thankful For A Wonderful (Well-Documented) Family!

Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday, and personally, the one thing that I am most thankful for is my family. So rather than round up a bunch of cards embellished with fall leaves and turkeys, I thought I’d show you some of my favorite family-themed scrapbooking pages from the past year. These pages are all from Designer LeNae Gerig, and can be found on Paper Wishes’ Scrapbooking 101 site. If you haven’t visited before, or if it’s been a while, you need to take a look! The site is packed with lots of scrapbooking tips and tricks, articles and of course, project ideas! Click on each image below for supplies and instructions.

The thing I love about each of these pages is the layout! I love unique layouts, and I found each of these inspiring in some way.

As a parting gift, I’d like to share a short scrapbooking article by LeNae called Advice From A Been-There Beginner. LeNae offers some fabulous scrapbooking insight and wisdom. And by wisdom, I really mean the sense of fun that she imparts on scrapbooking. Her article made me laugh (patterned scissors!), and gently reminded me of all the reasons my inner perfectionist does NOT have to show up at my craft table! At least, not every time…

Paper Wishes Highlights:

  • Our webisode this coming Tuesday will feature one of my very favorite new products — Spectrum Noir™ Colored Pencils! These super-vibrant pencils are incredible for layering color.  Just wait until you see Gail’s Spectrum Noir™ Busy Bees Card – you’ll see what I mean!
