December Daily Week 1

Hi lovelies! Today I'm sharing the beginnings of my December Daily® album for this year! I've switched up my album slightly since I prepped it but I'm really digging the simpler format this year that I described in that post. For the majority of this album I'm using one photo per day paired with hand-written journaling and I'm loving this approach so far! See below for even more details and I hope you enjoy!

December Daily Prep

I–like many others around the world–am partaking in December Daily again this year and boy am I excited! I completed my little album from 2014 with pride and I love looking back on all the happy holiday memories. Last year, however, I was back in school and working–a combination of which was way more than a full time commitment–and I fell off the December Daily bandwagon with all my beloved handpicked supplies left to collect dust. Until now, that is! Since I had already chosen supplies, purchased a mini kit, and made a *somewhat* concrete plan last year, but didn’t have the opportunity to do December Daily, I am repurposing those plans and am excited to tackle the challenge again this year!

Week in the Life Cover Pages

Hi all! I Finally got a chance to sit down and work a little bit on my Week in the Life album and I'm pretty excited about the possibilities.  I'm starting my layout with a stamped vellum page using the 'week in the life' stamp from the Ali Edwards Kit in an all over scattered polka dot pattern. I mean who doesn't love a good polka dot! I paired this stamping with the kit thicker that says 'life is full of adventure'! and that's the first glance at what my album is about. I'm not concerned with the dates on the title page because we'll get into that later so this is just about the feeling of the album for now and I'm loving it! Definitely going to look into scattering some vellum elements throughout.

#FromWhereIStand Mini Album

Hey guys! If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw that I had a blog post over on Little Lamm & Co where I used her fabulous templates to start a new mini album for myself and I'm calling it the "#FromWhereIStand Mini". I'm simply taking all of my standing pictures from throughout the year and grouping them into a mini album. It's been really fun so far to see the change in shoes and outfits, where I've been and what I've stood on. I can't wait to continue it so this week I'm sharing my take with some Kellie Stamps Digital stamps from the 'Rad''Coffee', and 'AM to PM' stamp sets, a card from the 'You Got This' card set by Push Print Studio as well as some of my own hand lettering. Let's get to it!

VIDEO | FAST + FABULOUS SCRAPBOOKING PROCESS FOR #LITTLE SUMMER JOY WEEK NO. 3

THIS WEEK'S LESSON FOR THE LITTLE SUMMER JOY PROJECT WAS ALL ABOUT CAPTURING THE MOMENT - AND I LOVE THAT! THE HOST CATHERINE  IS APPROACHING THE PROJECT WITH ONE PHOTO PER STORY AND THAT REALLY STRUCK A CORD WITH ME! USUALLY, I'M NOT THAT SPLENDID OF A JOURNALIST ON MY SCRAPBOOK LAYOUTS AND PROJECT LIFE SPREADS, SO FOR THIS MINI ALBUM I'M REALLY FOCUSING ON GETTING THE STORY DOWN ON PAPER - ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE EVERYDAY MOMENTS! BECAUSE OF THIS, I'M TREATING THIS PROJECT AS HALF ART JOURNAL, JOURNAL BEING THE OPERATIVE WORD, AND PART SCRAPBOOK BECAUSE, WELL ... I STILL WANT IT TO BE PRETTY OF COURSE! SO FAR FOR THIS PROJECT I'VE SHARED A COUPLE SPREADS (INCLUDING MY SUMMER MANIFESTO), AND MY COMPLETE SUPPLY LIST (WITH A FUN VIDEO!), SO NOW I WANT TO SHARE A LITTLE OF THE PROCESS WITH YOU, AND WE'RE GOING TO WALK THIS ROAD TOGETHER WITH 4 FAST + FABULOUS SPREADS! WATCH THE VIDEO DOWN BELOW, OR OVER ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!
