The "A.B." in ABCreations stands for Anmarie Bowden, that's me! My favorite ice cream is Mississippi Mud from Baskin Robbins, altho I'm partial to Oreos crumbled on top of Vanilla Bean ice cream too! I was born on Super Bowl Sunday. I have been digiscraping since 2000. I live in beautiful sunny California. I am married to my soul mate and we have two gorgeous children. My favorite saying is, “If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart!”

First Tuesdays Inspiration #7


It's First Tuesdays Inspiration time and today is a tough one. We all have those times when something doesn’t go right. These are the times my daughter used to say (when she was much younger) "das no good!" It was super cute and the best way to get a smile out of something you wish hadn't happened. Today for me, it was taking the laundry out of the dryer to find my hubby had left a pack of gum in his pants pocket. I stood there so long in shock trying to figure out what to do that taking a photo was the only thing that came to mind, lol! Usually my "das no good" moments come from having two small children, but today it was hubby's turn. No one's life is perfect, it's okay to document some of the bad stuff, and crafting is such good therapy, its bound to help you feel better! Let me see what you create, leave me a comment below.

Paper Scrapbooking: Ideas

Are you looking for some fresh and new ideas on what to scrapbook or how to make your next album so fun that it’s done in a flash? Well here are some great scrapbooking ideas to try on your next album or layout to capture the essence of your stories/memories and preserve them for generations to come.



Make your scrapbooking album a family project. Take photos of your family members from all different times, split up the pages and pictures evenly and let everyone do a few pages from their own perspectives. Have each person dedicate one of the pages to another family member.

Make a scrapbooking album with a friend. Collaborate on an album of memories that you share so that you can continue to share them every time you pick up the album. Make a copy of each page so you can both have a copy of the album to cherish. It’s nice to know that even if you haven’t seen someone in a while, that you haven’t forgotten each other or the wonderful times you have shared. Looking through those cherished memories will help you remember there are even more good times to come!


Make a birthday album by having everyone at the party sign a page of the album and write a note to the birthday boy or girl. Take a picture of each person so you can put it next to their birthday note. Take a group picture to be included in the album too. What a perfect birthday present to enjoy again and again!

Here are some other scrapbooking ideas:

Mother’s day

Family Heritage/Ancestry
Band/Concert
Celebrity Meeting
Cooking/Favorite Recipes/Family Recipes
Best Friend/Special Person in Your Life
Your Home and Furnishings/Home Remodel
4 Seasons/Nature/Hike
Scouts


Everyone has different experiences to share, from children to careers to hobbies and more. Remember to include those three-dimensional items (if they are too bulky, take a picture and use the picture instead) because they are important too. And always do a little journaling in your own handwriting, even though you may not be fond of your handwriting, it will mean so much to future generations. The sky is the limit when it comes to scrapbooking ideas, that’s why it’s so much fun! What is your favorite subject to scrapbook?
