Hi there! I have a few things to share with you today – all scrapbooking related….

Here is a tip that I shared over on the Elle's Studio Blog last week about how to use their tags in an unexpected way. To see all the details and the complete layout click here.

I was also the guest blogger over on the Creating Keepsakes blog last week! I shared a tutorial on how to use the packaging from your scrapbook products on your layouts! This is something that I do a lot lately as it seems like I am trying to create less waste and I also love taking advantage of all of the cute packaging that is out there now. It's like a free bonus that you get out of your supplies! I love that!
