Thank you! I use lightweight index cards for a lot of journaling. They're already 3" so it's easy to cut them down to fit into the pockets :)

Hi Kersten, this year I'm using a WeRMemory Keepers album made for holding dies. I bought it last summer. You can also cut down a 12x12 American Crafts Modern Album like this one: http://bit.ly/2cuvvPO

Hi Marissa! I usually explain in every the video and must have forgotten in this one - sorry for the confusion. It's just an eraser. When you're using new stamps an eraser will help prime the surface so they soak up ink better. You can also rub them on your arm or pants too, whatever you prefer.

I spent two hours this weekend printing out photos for two months of my Project Life album (while watching The Catch for the first time on Hulu - very fun!) so I could feel like I was on top of... Continue reading

Hey there, I didn't really love the hotel I stayed at and had some issues at the end with the bill that I had to dispute with Amex (they took care of it thankfully!) I'd stay at El Fenn in a heartbeat but I also haven't explored other riad's in Marrakech, there might be some great ones that are less expensive. Depends on how much time you want to spend at the riad VS will be out and about. Have a great trip! xo

Oh yes, you can easily just cut down the Design A to 6x12 and you're ready to go! They're in stock here in a 60 pack: http://bit.ly/2bYHo08 I also cut down some of the 9x12 page protectors from Studio Calico to switch up the designs which is fun: 3x3 - http://shrsl.com/?ds0l and 3x4 - http://shrsl.com/?ds0m

Yes, I use the fine tip sharpie pens! Your photo paper might be more glossy which is causing the smear?

Hey Sarah, so glad you bought the Share - you're going to love it! I found that it still overexposes photos just slightly but it's a huge improvement from the SP-1. You might not even notice it! And yes, this one has a rechargeable battery and comes with a cord you can plug in to charge it up. How easy is that? :) My case was a purchase from Amazon, I think it says Vena on it but I bought it a few years ago. Sorry that's not much help!

The resolution on the SP-2 is great, better quality prints than the SP-1. My camera can be hit or miss but never knowing what you're going to get is kind of the fun of using the camera :)
