Creating Keepsakes magazine – This magazine has seemingly endless inspirational ideas and great layout examples. It is my go-to place for creativity starters.
Cricut by ProvoCraft- I have an Expressions Cricut that allows me to make specific cut-outs based on the layout that I am creating. It is so much fun to play with, and helps me make personalized and detailed pages.
Gypsy by ProvoCraft – This is a handheld tool that allows you to sync all of your Cricut cartridges in one place, and then helps you plan your layout before cutting paper.
