Headbands to keep Cool


I found this amazingly simple headband to make on Craft Daisies who got it from Heather Bailey.

I took some time off from packing the August SBS kits and made one for my daughter and me. We are having a heat wave here with loads of humidity and these are perfect to help us stay cool.


Of course my daughter wants me to add some embellishments to hers. She wants some vintage buttons sewn on. I will probably break down and put some on this evening if I get caught up with my packing.

August's Guest Designer

We are happy to have Lynn Anne Cutler as our guest designer for the month of August.

She lives and scraps in rural-ish northwestern New Jersey. She shares her stash with three other scrapbookers: her husband, Ian; four-year-old Ralph; and 2-year-old Kaycie. She has created some fabulous examples with our August kit that features the Luminarte Radiant Rain sprays, including this adorable pyramid box. You can see more of her work in the ILove2Create gallery.

A wonderful layout from Rachael using the August Kit. Don't you love her journalling!!! She just got back from vacation. I don't know how she does it. It takes me a good week to get back into the swing of things let alone be creative.
