friday favorites | april 26, 2013

Happy, happy Friday, everyone! I hope that you all have fun and creative weekends on your horizons!

This week's Friday Favorites includes lots of two page layout inspiration- it seems that lots of other scrappers have them on the brain lately, too! I've also got some mini-album ideas and an organizational tip or two lined up, so let's jump right in!

From the top left:

  • Julie Kirk didn't intend for her layout to become a double-page spread, but it certainly looks like she planned it that way!
  • Yainea puts a fun spin on the traditional mini album by using her stamps to build a childrens' activity book. Check out the details at Lawn Fawn.
  • Heidi Swapp is currently in the middle of an 8-week series showing step-by-step how to create with one of her Memory File Albums. Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 have already been posted with more to come!
  • Shelly Jaquet walks readers through her process for stretching a single-page sketch into a two-page layout on the My Mind's Eye blog.
  • Lisa Moorefield recently wrote a great post on organizing memorabilia.
  • Ruth Bonser loves scrapping with kits (as do I!) and wrote a fantastic post outlining why kits are her preferred method of shopping for supplies, along with reviews of several kit clubs she's subscribed to.
  • Jennifer Larson wrote a fantastic series all about two-page layouts. You can read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5 at Write. Click. Scrapbook.
  • Virginia Nebel at Scrapbook and Cards Today shows a fun way to extend your single-page layouts into doubles by incorporating divided page protectors in a unique way.
  • I've been meaning to write a post about why I love Feedly as a replacement for Google Reader, but Christine Newman has already done a much better job of explaining the service than I ever would, so I'm just going to direct you to her awesome post instead!
