I'm a big fan of page elements that not only add aesthetic flair to the page, but also help reinforce your page theme. And pie charts are perfect for just that! They are a great way to add color and... Continue reading

Two-page layouts are appearing more frequently in my repertoire, mostly because I think I'm finally getting more comfortable working with this larger canvas. I tend to use the double-page spreads to document moments with more photos, lengthy journaling, or bits... Continue reading

Hey Michelle! i have an HP Photosmart 8550 that prints up to 13x19. I got almost 6 years ago and it totally changed the way I scrap! I don't think they make it anymore (I'm gonna cry when it dies!) but you can find refurbished ones. I only paid $250 for it new, so I wouldn't spend more than that! I do hear that the Epson Artisan 1400 is also a great option and it prints larger paper sizes too!
