New Blog Look and Digi Monday!

Like magic ...

the JBS Inspiration Blog has a new look!  Our links are easier to find, our labels will be organized a bit differently, and there will be lots of surprises along the way!  We hope this brings our fresh vintage inspiration in a bigger and brighter way to our JBS fans!

Today is Digi Monday ...

The JBS Digital Shoppe at has 2 new colorful releases today!

Look at the lovely layouts the CT has made:

from Jen McCabe 
from Kelly Mobley

I used the Soda Paper kit to finish my album organization project!  The circular icons included in the kit are perfect for digital and hybrid labels for layouts and projects:

I took the plain icons and dragged them onto a word processing program and resized them to fit metal rimmed tags I had on hand.

I typed initials for the albums that were organized by person, years for the chronological albums, and titles for the rest.

And since I often change my mind ... I attached the labels to binder clips.  If I ever reorganize in the future, the clips can easily be changed out!

If you're a digital scrapper you'll love our kits at .  If you're a paper scrapper, you'll love our kits for hybrid projects.  

Have a wonderful and creative day!

Pin It!
