Christmas Scrapbooking - Paper Kits

Making a Christmas memory book is an awesome way to celebrate the spirit of the season with your family. Here are some nice scrapbooking papers for a holiday or Christmas scrapbook. These are paper packs and kits that include multiple sheets of 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper. The paper pack concept is great for buying coordinated colors and not having to take extra time buying individual sheets (plus they often save you money).

The Frosted Collection or the Chrismas Magic Collection Kits from Fancy Pants include:

  • Eight sheets of 12" x 12" double sided paper
  • One cards paper
  • One titles paper
  • Two 12" x 12" die cut papers
  • One sheet of die cut stickers

BasicGrey - Eskimo Kisses Collection - Christmas - Collection Pack

Basic Grey kits include 18 double sided 12” x 12” scrapbook papers, and one sheet each of sheet of coordinating alphabet stickers and cardstock stickers.

For a for a warm holiday vintage look, These Jenni Bowlin cardstock packs include four embossed patterns in five colors.

Halloween Scrapbooking 2009 Scrapbook Supplies

It's feeling like fall and a fun holiday is around the corner - Halloween 2009! I've been scanning the web for scrapbook papers for Halloween scrapbooks. Here are some of the new designs. (I probably don't have to tell you that the best scrapbook papers get sold before Halloween, so don't wait too long if you plan to buy any.)

Some of my selections are pretty patterns, while others have the theme images such as pumpins (jack-o-lanterns), spider webs and other ghoulish things.

There are some interesting die cut papers too:

Dad's Day Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking for Father's Day

It's just about time to make a scrapbook for your Dad. I like some of the latest stickers I've seen with a Dad's Day theme. These might make a good embellishment for your scrapbooks:

Nice! I love the tools theme on these stickers.

This covers so much: golfing, fishing, grilling (it's cute, too).

Have you noticed the chipboard album trend? The selection of chipboard albums is better and better. This one says "Father" (it measures 10" x 4") and can be decoratedor painted, and journaling or photos can be added, too.

More for Dad's and Grads is in a previous post.

Celebrate Grads and Dads

May and June: Graduation and Father's Day Scrapbooking

It's almost that time for graduation ceremonies! This is an occasion that is so worthy of celebrating with a scrapbook. Funny how this happens every year and yet, there are so few scrapbooking products designed for grads. I keep looking for graduation scrapbooks and paper with a graduate theme. I found some brand new paper, stickers and albums. Fortunately, no one got cute with the product names and made a paper design called Mrs. Robinson! (Sorry, but I can't help thinking about that movie when I see the words "The Graduate.") Here is what is currently available for 2009 graduation scrapbooking:

Make any paper into a graduation theme with these Reminisce
clear stickers

Some of my favorite graduation designs on scrapbook paper
is this Reminisce
- Graduation Collection - 12 x 12 Flocked Paper - Graduation Day
. This design looks almost like an M.C. Escher print!:

Graduation Scrapbook Paper

Here's a pretty, more subtle design in silver foil:

Another scrapbook brand with some graduation scrapbook paper
is Creative Imaginations with their:

Grads Rule Collection
- 12 x 12 Varnish Paper - Diploma

Creative Imaginations Grads Rule Paper

Look at this new Karen Foster paper with a graduation theme:

Karen Foster Design - Graduation Collection - 12 x 12 Paper - Commencement

Karen Foster Commencement Collage

I realize these designs are supposed to look formal (which is why they used such dark shades) but I like a bit more color. Here are a couple that are brighter in tone. First is by Creative Imaginations:

Cap and Gown - Diploma

This graduation paper has softer hues:

Karen Foster Design - Graduation Collection - 12
x 12 Paper - Diploma Day

Karen Foster Paper - Graduation

That is a start for finding paper for grads, now lets look at some for dads! It can be difficult deciding on a Father's day present. A scrapbook could be a great solution - who wouldn't want a scrapbook all about them!?

Give dad a tie for Father's Day in a scrapbook with this

Ties scrapbook paper - Father's Day

Or make sure your Dad knows he's the number 1 father: Karen
Foster Design - #1 Father

Number 1 Father Scrapbook Paper

Fancy Pants Designs has a series of double-sided Father's
Day papers with their Papa - Dad - Father - Collection:

Father's Day - Hero

Fancy Pants Designs: Father's Day - Leader

This is a good start of where to find graduation and Father's Day scrapbook papers. I hope to show some stickers and rub-ons in another post. Go on, celebrate with a scrapbook!

Mother's Day Scrapbooking 2009

Mother's Day is around the corner. There is still time for you to make your mom a scrapbook. Here are some pretty scrapbook papers that I thought you might like. The pretty, feminine papers - especially those with floral designs - would appeal to my mom. So, that is what I picked to show in this blog post!

First are some BasicGrey collection packs with pretty floral patterns and coordinated dots, stripes and othe designs in what I consider good Mother's Day colors. I've shown 12 x 12 paper packs, but you can find the 6x6 packs here: BasicGrey Paper Packs & Pads

BasicGrey - 12 x 12 Sugared Collection Pack - This has some warm hues and a vintage quality that is nice.

BasicGrey - Porcelain Collection - This collection pack is a softly toned set of patterened papers.

I had to add these single sheets of paper examples from Anna Griffin - they look like wallpaper or fabric for elegant sofas!

Anna Griffin - Flora Collection - 12 x 12 Paper - Flora Botanical Plum

Carolee's Creations Adornit - Mother Collection - Scrapbook Paper - Life's Blessings says it all, so many nice words we all should tell our Mothers
The florists tell us to "say it with flowers." I say, do the same with your srapbooks for Mother's day. It's really not about the paper you use, though - it's about the time and care you put into making something nice as a present to honor your mom!

Valentine's Day Digital Scrapbooking

I just wanted to make a note about some digital kits for Valentine's Day. I know some of you are still working on those valentine memories. For digital scrapbookers I found some resources that might help. These are discussed at Digital Scrapbooking Now.

Go check it out! That website also has some digital images for scrapbooking - vintage pictures for scrapbookers to download and use. This cherub would work for a Valentine theme.

So, carry on with your scrapbooks - I just wanted to make sure you could find more resources for your digital creations!

Valentine's Scrapbook Paper - New Papers from We R Memory Keepers

In my last post I showed some BasicGrey paper that was just released (read it here). Before I forget to mention a cost saving product, let me remind you about bulk paper packs. There is a nice set of 60 papers (12 x 12) from American Crafts with all the colors for Valentine's Day.

These are also brand new designs but from another manufacturer (We R Memory Keepers) and they are called the Heart Attack Collection.

More Valentine's Day Scrapbook Paper

This blog post will be about the new scrapbook papers from We R Memory Keepers which are here just in time for anyone planning a Valentine's scrapbook.

These are all 12 x 12 double sided papers - shown below are all from the Heart Attack Collection: Adore, Be Mine, Crush, Darling, Flirt, Flutter, and Sweetheart.

I think I like Flirt the best, or maybe Sweetheart? They are all good! There are more of these Heart Attack Collection papers, but I just chose a few to let you see them right away!

I have an older post on this same subject: The Valentine Papers. Some of the products discussed on that one are still available. For 2009, I'm keeping my eye out of more Valentine's papers and will post about those when I find them!
