Six Small Businesses You Should Know: Episode Four--Finders Keepers

Welcome back to episode four of the Six Small Businesses You Should Know series! If you are just joining us for the first time, make sure to go back and check out the first three posts and videos in this series. Sara Scraps and I found a few amazing small businesses at Creativation 2018 and wanted to share them with you. I just know that you are gonna love them as much as we do. Today's feature small business is a brand new company out of California called Finders Keepers. 


Finders Keepers has a bunch of great planner goodies including stamps and washi tape. They also have two scrapbooking lines. The one that I was most excited to see is called Libris Schmibris and is all related to reading, books, and imagination. Sara and I both fell in love with the gorgeous colors and feel of this collection. Isn't this just so beautiful?!

For this particular project today, I wanted to stay consistent with the Boston traveler's notebook that I have been working on with all of the small business products so I am not going to use the literal literacy theme of this collection and instead work with some photos from The Boston Tea Party adventure that we did on our vacation. This works out perfectly with the old fashioned feel of parts of this collection and still allowed the theme to play a supporting role. 


Using a horizontal orientation for one of the pages of this spread worked perfectly because I really wanted to use this cut-apart card! The other side of the spread is a traditional vertical format and it worked perfectly to layer the washi tape to create a shelf for my photo strip to sit upon. 

The smaller cut-apart cards in the 2x2 size added a perfect addition to the outside of the page protector that I am using to hold my ephemera from the event. This allows me to add some staples as well to keep my ephemera pieces from falling to the bottom of the page protector. 


Each of the elements in this collection really supported the feel that I wanted to create on this particular layout. I love collections that can add a subtle element and play a strong supporting role while still allowing my photos and stories to play the leading role. 


I would love it if you would stop by my You Tube Channel and check out the process video where I talk more about how this project came together and I even get to show you more of the goodies from this collection. 

Don't forget to visit Sara Scraps and her project for this collection as well. You will definitely want to leave us both comments here on our blogs as well as on You Tube so that you can be entered into the giveaway at the end of this series for a whole box of goodies representing each of the six companies that we feature.
