December 8 - 15
And to wrap up our Holiday publishing season, Calendars for the New Year will be on special December. This time frame is after the shipping deadline so any calendars ordered during this time will not arrive in time for Christmas. That's why they are "for the New Year"...see what they did there? Clever, huh? Click here to see templates for 2015 Calendars.
Ok, so there you go. All your holiday publishing is planned out for you and you get to take advantage of the best savings! Ready, set.....GO!
Let me know if you need any help or have any questions. I'm always here to help. Just send me a text and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
In addition to Desktop calendars, there are the "Now and Later Calendars" This customizable calendar is something to enjoy now AND for years to come! (Get it? Now and Later) Each page is carefully perforated in two places, allowing you to tear it away from the binding and remove the calendar grid—leaving you with a 12 x 12 page to add to your scrapbook!
Personalize each page with photos and text, then add holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and appointments that are important to you. Click here to see the 11x8.5 Calendar templates. If you missed the last online class highlighting Halloween and Thanksgiving themed templates and how to successfully make subway art and use the Rulers tool, click here to watch the recording. If you need a little help getting a project started or finishing one, my next Digi-Crop is Saturday, October 18 from 10 am until 6 pm, come and go. Email me at Rebecca@OurPhotoStories.com to RSVP and for location.
The kids are back to school and we are getting settled into the routine, again. Now is a great time to start planning some holiday gift giving and decorating ideas. To help get you thinking along those lines, 11x14 prints are 10% off in September.
These projects are SUPER QUICK AND EASY. I already have several ready to order. Here is one with a couple of pictures I took of my girls on the first day of school:

The patriotic holidays are recent memories and now is the time to create and order your personal tribute projects! Here are a few of our favorite templates that you could easily customize for yourself or as a gift.
The "My American Hero" collection from Studio Creative Team Lead, Roxanne Buchholz, is a wonderful tribute set for the hero in your family. For a Canadian Hero variation, simply swap out papers and embellishments to create a more Canadian color scheme and change the text to say "Canadian Hero." With Studio, it's as easy as that!
For a more vintage option, Roxanne has also created the new "Patriotic Hero" set. There is an American version and a Canadian version, and each set has a 20 x 16 Wrapped Canvas and a coordinating 12 x 12 Scrap Page template.
"Patriotic American Hero", template 123180 and "Patriotic Canadian Hero", template 123178, both 20 x 16 wrapped Canvases. Coordinating 12 x 12 Scrap Page templates are available in the Template Gallery.
To help you show your patriotic spirit at home, here are a few colorful word art templates that we know you will love!
The "Patriotic Subway" set by Brooke Mehr is a very quickly customizable and completely Basic option that would make a wonderful addition to your home decor for the upcoming patriotic holidays. Simply replace the name at the bottom with your family name and then publish!
If you would like, you can also change the colors to suit your home decor or personal style. There are also similar Basic templates available for other holidays or events. Check out the coordinating templates in the Template Gallery!
"Patriotic Subway - USA", template 122975 and "Patriotic Subway - Canada", template 123118, both 11 x 14 Prints.Whether your personal style is traditional or a bit more contemporary, these two templates both make great home decor options.
"Pledge of Allegiance" by Studio Creative Team member, Cassie Balser, template 123163 and "Liberty and Justice for All" by Brooke Mehr, Basic template 123451, both 11 x 14 Prints.
These two coordinating patriotic invitations are very popular designs. "Fireworks and Freedom Party" by Roxanne Buchholz is template 89649 and "Canada Day Invitation" by Lynda Angelastro is template 89657.
If you need a simple and fun scrap page template to commemorate a patriotic celebration that has already come and gone, Studio Creative Team member, Cassie Balser, has created coordinating 12 x 12 Scrap Page templates for Independence Day and Canada Day.
Were none of these templates quite your style? Remember that you can change a template as much as you would like or start from scratch and create something completely unique. With your Heritage Makers Studio editor, the possibilities are endless!
Please let me know if I can help you start a project with these new templates.
One of the easiest ways to get started with designing a scrap page is to use a design map or a “sketch.” Design maps take the guesswork out of where to begin, by giving you the suggested placement of photos, embellishments, and papers, as seen through the eyes of a designer. They give you an idea of where to begin, but where you take the design is completely up to your imagination.
Each month, our Studio Creative Team is tasked with creating their own design from the supplied monthly design map. This month we shared “Sporty Design Map” 12 x 12 scrap page by Roxanne Buchholz, template 123459, and asked them to add their style to a sport of their choice. As you can see below, lots of interesting and diverse designs emerged.
Do you have a child or spouse that plays sports? If you do, this design map is a great way to help you get started. Even if you don’t have a sports fan in the family, design maps are made to fit with any hobby, special occasion, or everyday moment. Remember to capture all of your favorite memories with easy to customize products from Heritage Makers. We have all the templates and art collections to make your creative dreams come true!
