Three for The Lilypad

Chance – The BYOC packs from Little Butterfly Wings were perfect for my documenting my choice of a OLW for 2015. I’ve chosen Chance.

The Best Year Yet Journal Cards, The Best Year Yet Elements and The Best Year Yet Papers ALL by Little Butterfly Wings; A Bigger Mess by Amy Martin; Acetate Alphas by Heather Joyce;  Project Grids by Amy Martin; Custom Font

Family is the Greatest Gift – I used the extraction technique shown in Traci Reed’s My Digital December class at Scrapaneers for this one. It was also my first layout while guesting for Stolen Moments Design this month.

Christmas Wish by Stolen Moments Design;  Polly Love: Featuring Brynn Marie by Amy Martin; Custom Font

Time for the Tree – One Little Bird’s There’s Something about Merry kit was just adorable! This documents the annual HUGE downtown Christmas tree near my office.

There’s Something About Merry Elements, There’s Something About Merry Papers, There’s Something About Merry Journal Cards ALL by One Little Bird; 4×6 Monthly Frames and 3×4 Number Frames by Stolen Moments Design;  Project Grids 3 by Amy Martin; Style: Christmas Foil Photoshop Styles by Just Jaimee; Custom Font

 

All of these layouts use the custom font that I got from Darcy Baldwin Fontography. I bought print fonts for me and for my daughter because I love Darcy’s fonts and she was retiring from font design. Elysse did hers months back and I’m excited to say she uses them on her printed class notes. I also use them often on her layouts, especially ones that I journal in her words. I kept putting off making mine I guess because I was scared I wouldn’t like it. I’ve never been one to hate my own handwriting, I actually like it, but it is unusual. I’m excited to say that I love how it turned out! It really looks like I wrote on my layouts. I’m excited to use it on my 2015 pocket albums and other scrapping.

One More

This one is for the One Word challenge at The Lilypad. It’s about “journey” for November. I kept coming back to Elysse’s cruise this summer and decided to use one of those but make it a little broader since she’s about to graduate again.

Enjoy the Journey

Two for BYOC at The Lilypad

Before and After – I had a project day at my house with Daddy. HE did projects, my job was to clean off and reorganize the garage tool benches.

We Are Storytellers at The Lilypad

The Lilypad kicked off a month long series of daily freebies and weekly challenges to celebrate us as storytellers.

I had the pleasure of working with Sara Gleason’s mini kit from Day 1. I used it to document the first couple of hours after we adopted our newest cat, Rocky.
