SCRAPBOOK UPDATE- Teresa Collins
I will be sharing the newly designed items today via photos and a video. I was truly thrilled to debut-
HELLO MY NAME IS with new designs
A little about this collection. I believe that this collection will not only be one you will use to "document" your life, but your parties- (with my celebrate banner!!!), stationery (note cards, sticky notes, stickers and more!, HOME DECOR- Gallery Art. I wanted to bring MORE to the creative world.
This is the sticky notes. I am always in need of sticky notes and constantly writing things down.
This is the notecard and envelope set. I love the simple red glittered design. Note: I am using these for my Christmas cards this year. *Photos do not do these justice.
How about a stitched adorable circle garland for adding to your holiday card, or displayed in your home... or scrapbook? I can't wait to show you these glittered cuties in some of my projects.
This is my matchbook of six sheets of stickers... 179 total of different stickers. STARS, LABELS, SENTIMENTS and more. I am going to use these in bulk.
RED foiled designed 8x10 GALLERY ART. Wait to see what I do with this. I promise you will love adding this to your home, office, or even book making!!!!!
This is one of the 8x10 Gallery Art Frames that I used as my book cover. This project is about me and my life right now. Yes, I adhered it to chipboard and added my gold bookplate (yes, these will be available at Jo-Ann with this debut) and the sentiments inside my gold frame are from my HELLO MY NAME IS JOURNALING tidbits.
This is the cutest polaroid banner to display YOU or your favorite people inside. It comes with material to hang it too.
OR my FAVORITE- RED GLITTERED CELEBRATE banner.
HELLO MY NAME IS to tell the story of YOU, your life and your story. I wanted to do a beautiful collection that documents in a beautiful way WHO, WHAT, WHERE, and the important details. It is so important. If you are not writing it down... it will be forgotten. I will be doing a video and sharing MORE of the actual products. I truly believe crafting and creating can be "MORE than PRETTY paper." Yes, I said it. I want you to be inspired to DOCUMENT how fabulous YOU are. I hope you will focus on telling your story in whatever way your heart speaks to you. I know for me, when I lost my mother it changed me. It was too late for me to ask her so many questions. I wish I would have been into "scrapbooking" then. I lost so much. Unfortunately, her death that was so unexpected at age 53 years old, woke me up. I started to scrapbook as therapy and a way to document what I could remember. I hope this line INSPIRES you to tell YOUR story... NOW!!!!
* I am loving have my best friend home. He is the CUTEST. He is very weak and sleeps a lot. This is good because I know he needs the sleep to heal. Also, my sons are LOVING high school together. I can't believe I have a 15 and 16 year old. They are truly becoming closer. I was overcome with gratitude when Zach was contacted from Stanford this week. Yes, he is a junior and is not only a kind, sweet, and humble kid... but he is very academic (4.0) and excels at baseball.
I had my heart overflowing at the choices he will now have because he has works so hard academically and with his baseball goals. He was sidelined all this summer. He hurt his back during state playoffs. He had physical therapy this entire summer break. I am most proud of his drive to not stop or give up. He used this time to work out daily and eat well to be FIT and ready to play baseball again.
However, in the end- baseball is just a sport and his health was the most important thing. He always said, "Mom, I want to be good enough to get a full ride to play baseball, but I could get a full ride academically because of my grades without baseball." This summer proved again to our family, you never know what will happen. Be prepared!!!!
My son Tyler is doing GREAT things too. He was asked to go every week and will work with the special needs at a local center. He will be helping them every Thursday evening to do Arts & Crafts. I know this experience will enrich his life and heart at the age of 15. I know when he first was asked to do this, he was unsure if he even wanted to do it. (just being honest). Then he came to me with tears in his eyes and told me that this was an answer to a prayer he had prayed about. I think every young person at some time in their life questions... Is GOD real? Does he know me? Does he LOVE me? Well, Ty felt strongly that this opportunity to serve was a answer to his prayers.
*he made this cedar chest for me last year.
Oh, and in 15 days my daughter Taylor is marrying
TRAVIS. Oh my... I can't wait. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the 17th (surgery day for me)... but
I can't WAIT for the 19th. It is going to be a beautiful and happy
day for them and our family. I am in full wedding spirit now.
One of the reason I LOVE having our SEVEN amazing children is all the love and fun times it gives us. LOVE grows and as
our family welcomes another person- TRAVIS,
my heart is happy.
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A MOST AMAZING DAY TODAY!!!!!
