Called "mako sica" or "land bad" by the local Lakota Sioux and "les mauvaises terres traverser" or "bad lands to travel across" by the early French trappers, both descriptions evoke visions of a harsh and inhospitable landscape, where dangers lurk down every canyon. The Badlands environment remains a rugged, untamed, and remote country, stretching across southwestern South Dakota and parts of northern Nebraska. Regardless of its name, the Badlands are beautiful and unique.


The Majestic Badlands collection is perfect for many different types of layouts, from camping, vacation and travel, and heritage to family and children. The palette is based on the colors of the Badlands. 

Documenting Your Life Question-Prompt [Q129]

  • What trips from your childhood hold special memories for you?
  • Which National Parks are your favorite and why?
  • Tell about a recent family vacation exclusively from one person's point of view. 

To help you get started, I have a frame cluster for you. Just click on the preview and go to my store and add it to your shopping cart and check out.

Here are the previews of the collection and layouts from my Creative Team to offer you inspiration. As always, my heritage collections can be used to scrap everyday life in addition to the theme presented in the collection. 

The collection is on sale through Oct 3 - don't miss out!

Happy scrapping!

The Magic of AddOn Packs by Connie Prince

Welcome to my Blog Series for My Memories called “The Magic Of AddOn Packs”!

If you are like me, having enough time to do everything and do it well can be tricky.  Through the years as I’ve created collections I have come to rely on the pre-made AddOn Packs from my collections to help me get my own scrapbook layouts done in a beautifully efficient way!

This month we will look at a layout created by Lisa using my Life Chronicled: Dreams collection!  She was really able to take this collection off theme and create a Lotso layout!

The base paper was from a paper from the Messy Paper Pack which is already decorated a bit around the edges!

The elements are all from the Life Chronicled: Dreams Combo.

The title work was created using the Word Art pack and she customized it to match her layout using the Alpha Pack.

That’s it for this month’s Magic of AddOn Packs!  

Until next time!
