The Latest Idea Books Are Here!

The 2015-16 Annual Inspirations Idea Book is full of wonderful layouts for your scrapbooking, card crafting and home decorating needs and wishes!  There are so many beautiful new papers, embellishments, stamp sets, albums, organizers, a new Cricut cartridge, Artistry, and more. 

 The Holiday Expressions Idea Book highlights seasonal papers and stamps that you can only get now through December 31, 2015.  There are fun papers and stamps for the crisp autumn season, quickly approaching -- only a few more days of "official" summer, All Hallows' Eve, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Someone asked if she could order a copy of these inspiring books -- YES! you can!  Although you can see everything on-line at, you can order the books, curl up on the sofa, and write up your wish list to place your order.  

Remember, you can earn many hostess gifts  when hosting an on-line only gathering (where your invited friends and family may or may not live nearby), and shop at their convenience by a certain date, or when you host a home-gathering with on-line ordering.  Awesome!  Let's set a date!

Thank you for visiting!  Have a wonderful day!

Artbooking Fun!

Wow!  I am having fun crafting with my Cricut  Artbooking   cartridge.  I am using it for pages that will lovingly be placed in albums chronicling my family's life.  
"Little One" by Gayle Piron, papercraftingwithgayle.blogspotcom ~~

On my "Little One" layout, I wanted to keep things very soft and simple to not overpower the beauty and joy of a newborn and his family.  I framed each of the photos and the journaling box, along with the outer edges of the two page layout to bring the pages together.  The overlay, titles, words and bow/ribbon are all images found in the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  Papers used: White Daisy, Colonial White, Sapphire, and Crystal Blue cardstock.

Have a wonderful day!
