About Me  

My hometown is Calgary, AB but I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. We moved to Calgary in 1997. I am a Stay at Home Mom to a 7 year old daughter and a 4 year old son. I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for over 3 years now. My husband Bill and I have been married for 9 years. Like most people we lead a very busy life!

Stampin' Up! is a wonderful company to be a part of. Cardmaking, Scrapbooking and Papercrafts is a hobby that I have become very passionate about. Each morning when I sit at my computer and visit my favorite websites and blogs I can't help but become very excited and passionate about what people are creating all over the World, it's a great way to start my day.

A Fresh Idea: Preserving Your Child's Artwork (Scrapbooker's Paradise Newsletter)

If you're the parent of a child old enough to hold a crayon or colored pencil, chances are you have a box (or two) filled with priceless pieces of art. Each drawing or painting was once lovingly exhibited at the family gallery (read: refrigerator) or on a bedroom wall. But, eventually, need dictated that they be shipped off to storage. Now what? It's difficult to enjoy the artwork when it's stuck in a box, but how many "masterpieces" can hang in one home?

Rebecca Lehn-Hilliard has come up with a terrific answer for those of us with prolific little artists. She scanned several drawings by her son Jalen into her computer, then printed them out wallet size. (If you don't have a scanner, or if your child's artwork is too big, consider making a reduced color copy instead).

Using this technique, Rebecca was able to showcase nine of Jalen's masterpieces, as well as a photograph of the artist, all on a two-page layout. (Rebecca also included the descriptions of the artwork).

What a great idea, Rebecca! Now we have a prototype for getting our children's masterpieces out of the box and back on display. We know they'll love to view their artwork over and over again in the gallery that never closes—the scrapbook gallery.
