I Love those Candy Colored Pages!

Hi Friends! I love it when my kids make gingerbread houses. I love the creativity they have when decorating them. This year for the first time the kids were able to assemble the houses too! I thought they might be too old for this craft but they said “No way!” they still wanted to make them and of course they each had to have their own!


I was inspired to scrapbook these picture right away because of the brand new die cut adhesive ribbon I received from Offray. This product will be available soon in stores and on their website but you get a sneak peek of it in today’s video!

The self adhesive ribbon was so easy to work with and really flat which is nice for scrapbookers who do not want a lot of bulk in their albums and card makers who do not want to pay extra postage for lumpy items. I love to use traditional ribbon too so I used some narrow grosgrain  because it adds a great texture without fraying:

I kinda hate to tease you with new stuff that is not available yet but there are lots of other wonderful ribbons from Offray on their website and you can save 15% off your next order with the code Frugal15 Though 12/31/14. Thanks so much for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. I have a friend who started making gingerbread houses with her boys when they were young. They are close to 30 and it is still an annual thing for them. She is always amazed each year when they still want to make them.


  2. Hi Lindsay 🙂
    Great crafting and making gingerbread houses, mom and kids.
    Thanks for sharing!


  3. Such a sweet family tradition, Lindsay! Gingerbread House parties were our family tradition throughout our childhood, too! Your kids might never outgrow it!! I remember having a fun Gingerbread House party for my friends in college! Such sweet fun!! While teaching, I would decorate a Gingerbread House for my classroom, too! So happy that you captured this special time for your scrapbook! ♡

  11. Great pages! I love picture collage.One pic on a page just doesn’t do it for me. What program are you using to create the collage?


    • I am using free ipiccy.com , it is free online software, you upload pics, create to collage and then save it to your computer. then print from there. I used to use Picture Collage Maker Pro but lost it when I got a new computer. This free editor works just as well and is very easy. Lots of collage options!
