Gathering leaves and preserving them is a great activity and a wonderful way to learn more about the variety of trees in our neighborhood. Leaf slides provide a permanent way to display your favorite dried leaves, and is a great learning tool for children of all ages.
Select some dried leaves and laminate them, you’re Minc can do this and if you don’t have one you can use the stores. Trim to fit inside a frame you make from decorative paper. You will cut out a square to fit your leaf and also cut a piece of paper to use as a backing. Double sided designer paper makes this easy to do – simply flip the paper and use both sides. Use a corner rounder and ink all edges. Glue the leaf in place and then add the backing. Voila! Smaller versions can be used in project life pages or on layouts. Super creative idea to use in card making.

We're sharing the last of Candace's layouts using this months kit: Good Vibes and a sneak peek of the gorgeous goodies coming September 1!
Scrapbooking our stories of loss and grief can be such a beautiful way to celebrate, remember and release. Candace has opened up in her page and spoken of making all the moments matter. Thank you Candace for sharing such a personal page with us.
We love the diagonal design of this layout. Next time you're working on a page and feeling stumped... turn it on it's side.

We're here sharing two of the layouts that Candace has created using this month's kit- Good Vibes. We love these layouts and their backgrounds. Both these pages were created using the negative from the die cuts that Candace cut out for this kit. She could have just as easily thrown the "scrap" out but instead she saw it as opportunity to create. So great! Thanks for sharing your work and talents with us today Candace.
