Project Life – Week One

Project Life – Week One

I am so happy to be beginning a new year of Project Life! I remember feeling rather defeated with my albums at the start of 2015. But despite the fact that my “scrappin’ to do” list is even longer now, I am SUPER motivated and SUPER excited to jump in and start off the year with a bang. That’s something that I really love about Project Life. You can make a fresh start at the beginning of every new year! Here are some things that I am looking forward to when it comes to this year’s album: 1. Taking my DSLR off the shelf. 2. Making my own digital cards (either from scratch or using digital kits). 3. Bringing in realistic embellishments to add a

Introducing Sugarplum Art Prints

Introducing Sugarplum Art Prints

Life has not allowed for lots of free time for designing lately… but I did manage to create something new recently! I’ve started a new art print section in my Etsy shop: Each art print comes in five sizes (11×14, 8×10, 5×7, 4×6 and 3×4): You can do lots with these printables! You can print them out at home to hang on your wall. You can add them to a frame to place on your desk. You could even incorporate them into your scrapbook layouts or pocket pages! I’ve also added several springtime kits and collections to my shop this week (I don’t know about you, but I’m always in the mood for springy colors!). To celebrate, I’m having a sale in both my Etsy

Heart Art #052 & #053

Heart Art #052 & #053

New in the shop this week, I have a pretty set of coordinating Heart Art packs that I’m excited to share with you today! I recently went shopping for some new acrylic paints—on National Scrapbooking Day, of all days! I felt like a bit of a traitor, going to my favorite local scrapbooking shop, only to leave with a bag full of paint and painting tools. Ha! But I’m not a traitor… I’ve just gone hybrid (to the extent that I might as well just call it digi now). I couldn’t justify buying any more pretty things just to add them to my scrapbooking stash… at least not until I pick up work on my unfinished 2012 paper Project Life album. Oh, my! So, since

What’s Cooking?

It’s time once again to celebrate one of our favorite times of the year! It’s a time full of scrapbooking, contests, giveaways… and best of all store-wide savings! Let’s kick off things with a freebie, shall we? The quarterly DigiScrap Parade has launched! Here is my coordinating contribution to the parade: What’s Cooking : Freebie (If you’re following the Parade route from start to finish, you should have arrived from here and your next stop will be here. If you get lost along the way, simply head back to the main DigiScrap Parade site to view the master list and get back on track.) The colors of this month’s Parade were so pretty, I just had to make a full kit out of our palette!

Ready for Change

Ready for Change

I have a lovely new kit in the shop this week, full of sunshine and sweetness! It’s called Ready for Change: I may live in a more tropical climate now (where it’s already warm enough to enjoy the beach—which we did on Monday!), but I remember the longing I had for springtime when I lived up north. Come March, I just wanted winter to back its bags and go way for a good, long time. I wanted this kit to celebrate spring with all its cheerful brightness. Here are some amazing layouts from the talented girls on my creative team! First, here is a beautiful page from Melissa: Judie: Stacy: Sandra: And several more that I couldn’t resist showing off… 😀 You’ll find Ready for

January Special Edition : This is the Year

This week I finished up my first new collection since October—it had been so long, I almost forgot where to start once I opened up Photoshop! But once I started playing with these beautiful colors, I remembered just how much I love to design.

Here’s what you will find in this coordinating collection: This is the Year : Papers This is the Year : Black & White This is the Year : Essentials This is the Year : 2015 Calendar Cards If my new calendar cards look familiar, that’s because I used them myself all year long!
