Travelers Notebook Tips

I get a lot of questions about how I use my traveler's notebook and templates, so today I thought I might share a few of those using this little spread here.   For those of you that have been with me for a while, you know how much I love laying out my page. While I do use Illustrator to do this, you can do it just as easily in Silhouette Studio.     I also have the luxury of using my actual stamp image...'cause...well...I make them, but you can simply draw a blank rectangle where you'd want to place those type [...]

Capturing ‘Your Squad’

In this day and age of selfies, a great many more photos can be--and are--taken of ourselves. Yay! I think the tweens+teens utilize this feature much more than us adults (haha), but I love that more and more are finding themselves in front of the camera because they can. I love that it helps us to document life more regularly. But what do we do with all these photos? Well, take a look at what Laura has done with all the children she tends to....her squad.     [ Designs |  Storyboard #1 / Weathered Door [all] / Borderlines #1 [...]

Travelers Templates #3

aka: The Alternate Route. I am a girl that likes options....variation...making the most of my goodies. So when it came to making this kit, I kept thinking 'I like this, but I want that as well.' And, when it comes to cake, I always want to eat it too. Thus, I present to you: Travelers Templates #3! This blend of templates is unique in that some have predesigned titles and/or alternate spaces for photos. Using the eye in the Layers palette, you can turn off the pieces you don't want. Or, you could just delete the layer--but remember to save [...]

All Those Photos!

If there's one thing there seems to a lot of (besides sweets) at Christmas time, it's photos. Pictures of family, pictures of the gifts, pictures of family opening gifts, eating...all sorts of photo ops. That's a whole heckuva lot of real estate in an album....unless you do it Laura's way! Laura has a gift for getting many photos into a couple pages using KBS photo templates. This girl rocks the photo templates! Take a look. [ Designs |  Out Of This World (stars) / Yuletide Greetings (hello christmas) / Photo Strips #1 / Storyboard #7 ] I'm sorry...it has to [...]

Travelers Templates | Photo Templates in Traveler’s Notebook Size

I don't know about you, but I needed me some of these! I want to be able to display photos of the week in a collage form if the mood suits me. These Travelers Templates come in ten different styles, all measuring 4.125" x 8.25". Your standard traveler's notebook is 4.33" wide, but I decreased the width just a little so that it would fit in better. If you feel like you need to decrease it to 4" wide while keeping your height, you can do that without really affecting any of the frames. I can't believe it's been about [...]

It’s Hip To Be Square…Or Of A Rectangular Nature.

Photo templates are one of my favorite scrapbooking tools. They make placing a handful of photos together a cinch. And me, with my love for straight lines and all, adore all things clean--the kind of clean that a template can provide with multiple photos. In other words, you can get a lot of images on a page, without it looking cluttered. So that's why I'm so excited that today's sale is on Photo Templates! Buy 2 or more Photo Templates and save 30%. Use code NSDPHOTO at checkout. Now, that's what I'm talkin' about! One of our sweet creative team members [...]

Snapshots #3 Is Here!

Each time I use my cute little Epson Charm printer with multiple photos, I wish and wish I would just make some 4x6 photo templates to make life so much easier. Well folks, it is done and here it is! These are all 4x6 photo templates. Some are made for putting multiples on a page and some are made for that 'instax' look. There are some that have the usual frame accompaniment. And on the 'polaroid' style, there are round and straight corner templates to make it all a piece of cake. (Note: You can increase the size of the template, but [...]

The View

Nope. I'm not talkin' about all the broo-ha-ha going on in daytime television. You won't find Rosie or Whoopi here folks. What you will find is a wonderful 'perspective' coming from Laura. It's a fabulous idea! [ Designs | Pack Your Bags (the view) / Storyboard Instagram Style (photo template) ] Here's what Laura has to say: A while back, I had been searching thru Kerri's cut files in my Silhouette library and came across one from the Pack Your Bags kit that said "the view". It might have come from a travel related kit, but it immediately gave me an [...]

easter freebie + new kit + sale ending

It's Easter weekend. I miss the days of basket-filled sweets. Tiny little surprises. Hiding baskets in unusual places the night before--like the dryer or hanging from the ceiling fan. Something fun for the kids to do that morning when they wake up. I think I'm feeling nostalgic this week for the younger days of my kids...not that I want to go back, mind you, but they are sweet moments. So instead, today I share some sweets with you. Let's start off with this cute little Easter freebie. I call it a funky bunny. I like a little quirky from time [...]
