There are some products that just seem born to be used in amazing scrappy and story-centric ways.  You know the kinds of unique elements that add THE perfect touch to your story?   And there are some designers who are positively gifted with this kind of creativity.  Jacque Larsen is just that kind of creative force.  Her products are fun and full of unique energy.  And because she creates them with her own hands, with real life paper, they provide a fantastic sense of realism to pages that I just adore and that totally satisfies my love for paper-y goodness .

I was just talking about the awesomeness of photo-less scrapping.  Highlighting, among other things, just how photo-less scrapping & theme-centric, unique products are Made For Each Other…and I can’t tell you how many times I found *just* what I was looking for in Jacque’s store.  She creates AMAZING products, both “theme-y” and more general and without fail they bring out the best in my pages and they are just the kind of products I was talking about…they can be put to use so beautifully in photo-less scrapping.

Here are a few of my most favorite Jacque products:

    I love the Do My Duty Collab….my third of three boys will receive his arrow of light on Thursday and then my cub scout days will be done. I’m having a bit of bittersweetness at the moment. Thanks for the opportunity.
