Nice Weekend ...

This weekend I had a nice visit with my daughter and her family and I was FINALLY able to give them the Wedding scrapbooks I made for them. They both really loved them and like I said a few posts ago I was thrilled with the outcome.

I did 2 -100 page books, I did the same cover for both with the same frame but used different pictures.

Even the spine came out nice and centered etc.

And here's a glimpse of a few of the pages ...

And the back of one of the books ...

I had the books printed at Artscow. I love that place. For those who don't know it is in Hong Kong but delivers world wide. They always have tons of great offers on. (Like right now they have on 60 page 12x12 books for $37.99 with NO SHIPPING!) If you have facebook you can check out the deal here: Artscow on Facebook

Another reason my books were such a great success is because of the
My Memories Suite program I use. It shows you with a shaded area what will get cut off during printing so it's so easy to make sure everything is in exactly the right place. It also has a 'grid' you can use to line things up and for spacing things correctly. I LOVE that program. (It has so many great features I can't name them all). So between My Memories Suite to make the books and Artscow to print them I am enjoying scrapbooking much more these days!

My next project is going to be a book for my grandson. He is 9 months now and I think I will do one big one for his first year. It's so fun to watch him crawling and walking with a little assistance. He can even take 4 or 5 steps even on his own now! I even got in a night of babysitting this weekend when his parents went to a wedding!

The above layout of my grandson has a new item that went into the shop today:

Frame A Page Overlays #1 - Get them HERE.

These 12x12 overlays are fun and they could also be sized smaller and used as frames!

One of the things I will be using for sure in my grandsons book will be dates. It's so important to make sure you date your books. I plan on using my 2011 date stamps (I've given them a few times away on my blog). You can see I used one in the layout above. (It's reduced to 50% - they are quite large). If you missed them when I gave them away well ... I think its time I gave them away again ...

I love the books. They turned out beautiful. I was wondering if you could help me with how to do the cover, spine and back page. I am not sure how to do them to make them all line up and everything. My email address is
