Motivation Monday #1 - Getting more of you in your albums

I know I am guilty of this. I look back through the albums I have created and more often than not I have done more in documenting about my family and friends than I have about me. I am challenging myself to tell more of my story in my scrapbook pages. I've come up with a list of layout idea prompts that I want to share with you.

I will be sharing some of these layouts in the coming weeks. I want to challenge you to try to add more of you to your scrapbook layouts and share them! You can use the list I have here or come up with your own prompts. I will have a little gift for everyone that shares a layout and tags me by the end of August. Looking forward to seeing your layouts!

Tips and Tricks Tuesday #2: Sunburst Technique

Sorry to have been a little MIA lately. It's crazy how fast time goes by when everyone is out of school for the summer. Catching a little time here and there to scrapbook has proved tough. I have been working on figuring out the schedule for additional monthly day crops and working on creating some fun card making workshops. Check out the Events link on my Facebook page to keep up with the upcoming events.

Now on to the main reason for my post today. I have wanted to do another Tips and Tricks Tuesday video post and while working on a layout today I realized I had a great technique I have used in the past that I wanted to share with you, I call it the Sunburst Technique. Here it the layout I used it in.

Here is a close up of one of the sunburst embellishments I created for the layout. The technique is fairly simple in that you just need a scallop punch and a sticky note to do this. Scroll down for the video. 

Hope you enjoyed the video and have fun trying out this technique! I hope you share with me what you create!
