Year: 2018

  • Kelly Purkey Shop Guest Designer – November

    Sorry for the silence, but these last couple of months have been so incredibly busy and hectic! Now that Christmas is over, I’m trying to catch up on doing a few posts that have been on my list for a bit. In November, I was invited by Kelly Purkey Shop to be their guest designer. […]

  • Project Life 2018: Week 34

    Week 34 was a difficult week of transition and changes. My daughter started going to school and we had to adjust to a different schedule, different people, and different places. Everything was eventually fine, but that first week was TOUGH! I used mostly digital elements from Paislee Press to create these pages. I love how all […]

  • Studio Calico October Stamp Set: Special Delivery

    Stamps are some of my favorite things to play with so when Studio Calico asked if I wanted to try out the October stamp set, Special Delivery, I said yes of course! The stamps in this month’s set, designed by Christine Herrin are super fun and versatile. The postage stamps included reminded me of frames […]

  • Project Life 2018: A long weekend in Seattle

    In early May of this year, we took a short trip to Seattle to see some friends and play tourist. Although this trip will probably be documented more fully in a mini-album of some kind, I wanted to add a couple of inserts to my Project Life album as a summary. I created one 9×12″ […]

  • Project Life 2018: Week 26

      As the days start to get shorter and Summer slowly fades away, I’m happy to hold on a little longer by documenting the memories created during the season. I loved making this bright spread with both kits from Kelly Purkey and Feed Your Craft. Here’s a look at the entire week: I had quite a few photos […]

  • Studio Calico: July Guest Designer

    Studio Calico asked me to be a guest designer for their Documenter Kit this month. It was fun to work with the July “Great Escape” documenter kit, which had a lot of nice embellishments and bright, summery colors. I made three 12×12 pocket page spreads just using the kit, which I talked about on their blog here. 1. […]

  • Project Life 2018: Week 25

    One of the (many) reasons I like working with digital supplies is the ability to re-color and customize the elements. I often do this to perfectly match other shades found in photos or already-printed, physical cards. For Week 25 in my pocket page album, I did exactly this.Here’s a look at the entire spread. Liz […]

  • Everyday Explorers Projects: June

    I made a couple of pages using the June release of stamps at Everyday Explorers Co. The Choose Your Own Adventure stamp set is SO good! I’m pretty sure I will be using all of these little postage stamps eventually! We recently spent a long weekend in Seattle and I will probably do a mini-album […]

  • Project Life 2018: Week 20

      An external hard drive which contained photos from the last 10 years failed about a month ago and it’s been crippling regarding my memory-keeping. I talked about what happened on Instagram so I won’t go into it again here, except to remind everyone: Please check your backups! I’m creating with the current photos I have […]

  • One Little Word 2018: April

    Yes, I know it’s been a while since I updated this blog! I’ve been posting most of my layouts on Instagram which is so easy and haven’t made the time to do any posts. I’m starting up again with this post, and hope to share some previous layouts in the next few weeks. This year […]
