Today is World Card Making Day!  There is no better way to show someone you care like sending a handmade card.  In a sea of junk mail and bills, a card is a simple thing that really stands out.  Why not make and send a card to someone to just say hello or give them a little recognition or love?  And what’s even better is that from October 1-5, card making essentials are up to 25% off at Stampin Up!  Click here to stock up so you can share your love all year long!

In honor of National Scrapbooking Day I thought I'd share a few pages from an album I've been working on.  The album is a Project Life 8" x 8" ring binder and comes with a kraft cover that can be decorated as you like.  I stamped mine with Black Archival ink and the retired stamp set C is for Cat. 
The photo mats are Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake card stock cut with the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelit dies.  The Bermuda Bay arrow was punched with the retired What's Up punch, and the acetate cards are from the Project Life Memories in the Making collection that was in the 2016 Sell-a-bration catalog.
