I finished my Christmas Layouts with Sparkle and Shine!

In my nine years with Close To My Heart, I have gone on a roller coaster ride with my own scrapbooking.  For quite a few years, I got so busy doing design work for my workshops and customers, that I neglected my own personal scrapbooking and began to lose my passion for preserving my memories.  One of my goals for 2014 is to PUT PICTURES ON MY LAYOUTS!!!!  Sounds simple, but like so many things in life, it often falls to the bottom of the priority list.

So – now that I have confessed my goal to the world, I wanted to show you what I have done.  Here is Sparkle & Shine – Kessler style!  🙂

And using the 4×6 flip flaps – these are LIFE CHANGERS!!!!  🙂

For those of you who have not yet used Flip Flaps, they are simply protective pockets with an adhesive strip that you can attach directly to your page or your page protector.  Your photo or memorabilia is completely protected, but you have added an interactive aspect to your page AND you can include multiple photos in the space of one!  And – did I mention that they are inexpensive??   Between $3.95 – $4.95 for up to 15 flip flaps!!!  YAY!!!  For more information, check out my website.

Right now I am neck deep in NEW PRODUCT and NEW WORKSHOPS – so make sure you are checking back with me for the big reveal…..  It all starts February 1 with our 2014 Spring/Summer Idea Book!!

Make Something SCRAPTABULOUS – because CUTE matters!

Hugs,

Dana

    Great layouts and fantastic use of the sparkle and shine! I agree with you that it is important to do your own layouts as you help other people make their goals….otherwise we miss the point.
    Always, Alayne

    Your layouts are great!! I have also fallen WAY behind in my own scrapbooking due to making projects for other people. This is also one of my resolutions for 2014! That and actually mailing all of the cards that I make!

      Thanks, ladies! I now have a stack of photos and layouts to complete on my desk. Just have to make the time to finish them in between workshops! I LOVE getting all my kits finished early on, but I am going to make a point of doing some of my own scrapping between kits so I don’t drive myself insane! LOL

    I’ve been scrapbooking for over 20 years and absolutely LOVE it! Your designs are new and fresh and I’d like to incorporate a few in my next projects. I’m new to your blog and would like to inquire how to purchase Sparkle and Shine items but I’m unable to find them to purchase. Your assistance is appreciated. Thanks!
