  2. HI Maryann :) I just wanted to tell you that your PL album convinced me to finally purchase one this year. I am so excited to get mine started, and working on getting prints, including the last couple of years to start. I bought the turquiose kit,the extra pages and journaling cards. I excited to finally get photos in a album, instead of in my cpu where they are kept, hidden, and never printed until I decided to scrap them traditionally. I realized that I would never be able to scrap these many photos in this digi age...and I want my stories told. I hope that you continue to do the videos or show your pages as we go along in the year- they are so inspirational! Thank you for taking the time to share :)

  3. I love your album. Very inspiring. I would like to ask where you get your pictures printed at? I would love to print some 6x12.

  4. I also was wondering where you get photos printed at. I LOVE your desk and organization shelves what system do you use?

  5. I print my photos on my canon pixma at home....but you can upload your photos to costco and have them printed as a 8 x 12 and then trim the sides down to fit a 6 x 12 page protector

  6. Loved, Loved, Loved your "thank you" video you made for Becky. Went out that day and bought a bunch of page protectors to add to my 2010 album. Why didn't I think of that? So simple, yet so creative! I was hoping you were a fellow blogger so I could stalk...er...read more of your creative goodies. I will be following :)

  7. Thanks for this tutorial!!! I wanted to give you a little hint as I noticed your sewing machine moving on you. I bought some non-slip stuff that you would put under a carpet, cut a small rectangle(to JUST fit under my machine) and use it under my machine. I just roll it up and keep it in my carrier with my sewing machine. It keeps the machine from moving and was an easy fix. :)

  8. I use a metal ruler and a soldering irong, running it quickly across the plastic. Works pretty well for those with no sewing machine. Just don't stop or the plastic will "pool". Better to do two fast swipes if you need a second seal. : )
