Thursday Treats – Spring Break 4/30

thursdaytreats-springbreak

 

I’m back today with a continuation of Britanee’s blog post all about Spring Break. We’ve shared some kits to document road trips and to showcase your memories about your vacation destinations. What about day trips, fun outings to the pool and complete staycations exploring the activities in your own hometown? I’m going to share some digital scrapbooking kits from the Shoppe that you might use to scrap those memories.

(Inter)National Scrapbook Day is almost here! Are you getting excited for all the hustle and bustle, the sales, the enabling to your friends for the perfect kit, the online chats and Facebook games? I hope so, because you are bound to see a lot of activity on scrapbook sites and social media over the next few days.

As you can imagine, behind the scenes at Sweet Shoppe is an actual beehive of activity. I can’t sneak everything that will be new in the Shoppe on Friday just yet because I haven’t seen it all… but what I HAVE seen is all absolutely amazing! Any other time I would share just  a few layouts from the SugarBabes with you but I feel like everyone is excited about what’s coming so I’ll share a few extra today just this once. So brace yourself for a whole lotta gorgeous!

Thursday Treats 4/23 Earth Day

thursdaytreats-earthday

 

Yesterday, on April 22nd, we celebrated Earth Day. The first Earth Day was in 1970 in the United States, organized by Senator Gaylord Nelson. It is now celebrated in over 192 countries to promote taking better care of our planet.

From the Earth Day Network:

 

Why do we need an Earth Day? Because it works! Earth Day broadens the base of support for environmental programs, rekindles public commitment and builds community activism around the world through a broad range of events and activities. Earth Day is the largest civic event in the world, celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. More than a billion people participate in their campaigns every year.

 

In my own circle of friends, I’m known as the recycling queen, often saying “Aren’t you going to recycle that?” when visiting others.

I looked through the store and gallery to find a few kits that could be used and some layouts celebrating our love of the Earth:

Thursday Treats – Inspiring Quotes 4/16

thursdaytreats-quotes

 

I’ve been a voracious reader all my life, loving books and the written word. There is something about a well crafted phrase that you just have to keep looking at again and again.

In my scrapbooking zone, I adore a filler card with just the right quote to set the tone for the entire layout. Sometimes you don’t even need a title with the perfect quote!

Pinterest is my “go-to” spot to find quotes and to keep them for later. It might be just the quote itself or it might be a meme with a quote AND graphic that I include in my weekly project life layouts. I have a Quotes or Words Pinterest board of my own and I follow several of them so that they always show up in my feed. Serious or funny, G rated or … not, I hoard them for the perfect occasion.

It just so happens that this month one of the Bingo Challenges is to use a favorite quote on a layout. I found several layouts in the gallery participating in that challenge.

I have selected a word of the year for the past several years. I pin quotes for each word onto separate Pinterest boards as a way to keep my word present and be able to scrap with it all year long.

 

From projectinspired.com

 

Here are a few other quotes boards that I like:   Quotes., disneyandquotesInspiration  and Travel Inspiration.

 

And because I think it’s terribly relevant to my fellow scrapbookers out there, a favorite quote that I relate to hobbies and creativity:

See you next week!
