Add A Splash Of Color To Your Summer Photos

Xanadu, according to all accounts, was a beautiful place, the first capital (1263-1273) of Kublai Khan and later the summer capital (1274-1364) of the Yuan Dynasty. Xanadu was abandoned in 1430 and over the centuries, the place name has evolved to become a descriptive term, defined as: an “idyllic, exotic, or luxurious place”. With abundant flowers and foliage along with plenty of beautiful garden accents, this collection will allow you to scrap all of your beautiful, idyllic … places.

The Xanadu scrapbooking collection is bursting with summer color.  You’ll find gorgeous greens, bold blues, powerful purples, and radiant reds.  This vintage garden theme is ideal for feminine layouts or go bold and you have everything you need for those macro photos of your favorite flowers and insects.

Summer Vacation – Scrap Your Favorite Childhood Road Trips

Summer Vacation – Scrap Your Favorite Childhood Road Trips

Did your family do road trips when you were a child?  Still have some old photos to scrap?  You’re going to love this new collection. Cute kids and camping gear go together in this delightful collection. Summer Vacation is my homage to the two-week vacations my family always took each summer.  We packed up the station wagon and the trailer and hit the road for two weeks. We camped in National Parks and we were rarely in the same campground more than two nights as we traveled to many destinations.  I saw a great deal of the USA as a child, thanks to these wonderful vacations.

Vagabond – My New Manly Scrapbook Collection

VAGABOND

Genealogists often encounter the ancestor or collateral family member who lived a life different enough from the rest of the family (or even the community at large) to be noticed.  The ancestor who marched to a different drum, if you will. Sometimes the appellation “black sheep” would be appropriate, sometimes “drifter” or “adventurer” world be more correct.

The Vagabond Collection strives to offer the family historian some fun tools to scrap these special ancestors. It is NOT limited to genealogists, nor will you be limited to vintage photographs. The palette is darker and more “manly”, just in time for Father’s Day.

Come Sail Away – A Romantic Scrapbook Collection

Come Sail Away – A Romantic Scrapbook Collection

The Perfect Romantic Collection: Come Sail Away is feminine, a bit frilly, full of flowers, greenery, and lace.  Tattered vintage elements mixed with modern watercolors make this an easy to go to collection to create a photo book of the little princess in your life or a scrapbook page or card for Mother’s Day, anniversary, or any page where romance is the focus.

AND I love the song Come Sail Away sung by Styx

I’m sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free, free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board, I’m the captain, so climb aboard
We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I’ll try, oh Lord, I’ll try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said

They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

Wind Song Perfect For Scrapping Your Native American Ancestors

Wind Song Perfect For Scrapping Your Native American Ancestors

If you have Native American ancestors then you know it is a real challenge to find reliable documentation and unless your family was awesome at keeping photos that might be a daunting task as well.  If you have the story, it may be all you ever have but it shouldn’t go when you do.  If you’ve turned over every stone and all you have is the story then make the best of it.

The April Mixology at GDS might be just what you need.  As soon as I saw the colors I knew which direction I was going.  I was inspired by my own family history and re-runs of great John Wayne westerns, Little House On The Prairie, and Bonanza danced in my head.  I knew I wanted to create a collection that focused on Native American culture but I couldn’t quite let go of the immigrant who came and weathered storms to make a better life.

One of the beautiful things about being a designer is I don’t have to choose only one.  I fed my Native American inspiration and then partnered with Patty to create the immigrant version for Over The Fence Designs.

Both sets are based on late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  Both set coordinate beautifully so you can easily mix and match.  Both sets are on sale right now for only $1.20 each for a short time.
