A new blog look

I updated my blog theme just a little and finally updated my blog header to something a little more recent.

I’ve got some pretty big news to share, a fun new scrapbooking “job”. I don’t know all the details just yet but I’ll share when I do!

I’ve already done 6 new layouts for this Friday, 2/1/13. It’s BYOC time at The Lilypad and the start of a big Sweet Shoppe Design sale. And the goodies being released at One Story Down are going to blow you away!!

3 new ones for Traci Reed

Man, is that Traci Reed prolific!  She’s been making 3 collabs a week this month, so many new designers to use their designs. I’ve been really enjoying myself.

Two Birds

I’ve said it before and will say it again, Valentine’s Day/romantic kits are tough for me to work with.

Love is in the Air by Traci Reed and Jacque Larsen;  Nemesia by Sara Gleason; Fonts: The Deck by Heather Joyce, DJB Miss Cranky Pants by Darcy Baldwin

Laura Ashley Phase

During my massive scan/sort last weekend, I identified a number of photos that I would like to scrap AT SOME POINT. I was able to use one for this.

3 new ones for One Story Down

Another week filled with TONS of goodies at One Story Down this week! Two new designers, more art journaling supplies, fun new quirky items for collage. The store is really taking off with new challenges and lots of new members.

Chinese Lanterns

Once I saw the strand of lanterns I knew what I had to do this layout about. I actually do still have the costume in the cedar chest here.

Herb’s

Again, when I saw the 50’s theme I had the perfect photo. I spent last Sunday beginning the scanning of Grandma’s photos. One of them that I found was of her in her uniform when she worked at/managed a restaurant here in town. I called Daddy and he shared many details about that time in their lives that I didn’t know.

Have I?

I got to use some art journaling supplies from a new designer, The Thinking Creative. Art Journaling really lends itself well to introspective thinking and using no photos, just finding bits to “illustrate” your story. I can tell that I’m going to LOVE working with her products.

3 new ones at Sweet Shoppe for Traci Reed

As much as I thought I might not do Project Life again, I have done a couple of grid/protector type layouts recently. I still love the shapes and the ease of it all, little compartments to fill with JUST enough stuff.

It’s that time of year again, the time for Valentine’s Day kits and all kinds of romantic ooey-gooey. As a divorced person, this is just not helpful for my scrappin’ mojo. I have to dig really deep to find stuff to scrap. This year I’ve scrapped some of my grandparents and now some of my parents.

Happy Birthday to The Lilypad

It’s the 6th birthday for The Lilypad this weekend. A 30% off sale, plenty of games in the forum, should be a fun place!

I did two layouts with new products this week, a new template by One Little Bird, XOXO by Traci Reed and AmyJaz Designs and Negatively Dated by Amy Martin.
