I am not sure if it is just me, but I feel like somehow there are less hours in my day then there were even just a few months ago. I mean, where are they going. Whoooosh! It’s suppertime! I mean didn’t I just wake up? I put so many things into my day, homeschooling, designing, my book business, the house cleaning, meal making. The other day I was talking to my husband and I realized that one thing that I had neglected to do for awhile was to capture and record my own families memories. I was going to try and do Project Life, but somehow getting pictures printed was just to hard for me to do LOL. We looked at my schedule and I penciled in 4 hours a week to record my own families memories. How sad that I am creating kits for you all to record your memories and yet my photos are just stockpiling in my iphoto and lightroom albums.
Since I want to stay on top of this and really record my thoughts and our memories, but also recognizing my lack of time, I am turning often to one of my favorite scrapbook supplies to help me out. Templates! Sometimes we just don’t have time. Maybe our minds are just in a funky mood and we can’t get anything to pull together. Templates are perfect cause they take a great idea/sketch and make it so you can drag and clip what you like to it and have a layout in, often, a much quicker time.
For the next four Mondays, I will be sharing with you, different ways to use your templates. They are so awesome because they are so versatile and you can do so much with them. I am thrilled to be a freelance CT member for Fiddle-Dee-Dee designs. I was chatting with Cheryl about my idea and she was so amazing and gave me a coupon to share with my CT so that we could make layouts for you all.
I choose her Fuss Free: Pennant collection for us all to work with. So tune in this Monday for our first installment in the series, “Templates: Scrapbooking Super Heroes”
