    Hi there!  I hope you are having a great summer.  I'm here to share a layout I did with the Carta Bella Kit Soak Up the Sun, from FotoBella. I know these aren't true ice cream photos but it was a little one on one time I was having with my oldest.  She doesn't get that has often anymore.  I took her to Starbucks for a chocolate milk and mom some coffee.  She thinks it is a fun treat to go.  I wanted to document our little outing.Have a beautiful day!

  • 5 Tutorials for Creating Depth of Field in Your Photos

    Francine Clouden
    23 Jul 2015 | 3:00 am
    Depth of field is one of those photography concepts that, once understood, has a great impact on your images. For scrapbookers especially who are focusing (pun intended), on taking photos of important people and things, it can make a huge difference in your photos. It can help to make the subject of your photo really pop! Once I mastered this concept I saw a hug improvement in my photos, and I was much happier with the prints I was using on my scrapbook pages. Here are links to five different tutorials that will help you to achieve that sought after out-of-focus look. 1. Finding Your Focus…

    This summer is just flying by! We spent a wonderful two weeks in Hawaii. As soon as I got home, though, the vacation was over. I had to pack my mom's house and help her move to her new retirement community. Her new place is great, but it's a lot smaller so it's going to take some time to sort through everything. The week was exhausting while we packed, moved and unpacked, but I think I am finally over my jet lag. LOL. This weekend finally brought some time to relax.Here are a few cards that I made with Gossamer Blue's July kits. They are so fun and perfect for documenting all of your…

As you can see, though, you don't have to be going anywhere to use them. I really had a lot of fun creating this month. Here are 3 layouts that I made.This first page is about how much I love the beach, specifically the beach at my brother's home in Nags Head, NC. The lighter colors were perfect for my photo.The cute wood clouds are from Shimelle's wood die cut set. Love them!Next is a page about my high school BFF. I love using cards from…

They are both from Doodlebug.This spread in my Sky Blue Color Crush featured some cute kitty stickers and page markers.

    29 Jul 2015 | 12:15 pm
    I’m having a hard time settling back into normal life after our long vacation. Actually, it’s not even “normal life” since JK is still on parental leave, which makes it even more annoying – instead of simply enjoying all this time we have together, I find myself stressing out about having to be productive and getting all the things done, and then I don’t get anything done at all because I’m exhausted. This is part of a more systemic case of the blahs that started while we were in Italy, fueled by insomnia and insecurity, and I want it to end as soon…

    These days, we are settling back into normalcy after five weeks of vacation. JK saved his parental leave for this summer so we could go on a grand adventure with Nora – visiting Norway (to show off lil’ Norbert to friends and family) and Italy (to attend a wedding). Nora experienced so many firsts! First flight (transatlantic, no less), first seven-course meal, first boat ride, first swim. In Italy, she visited the Dolomites, swam in the Adriatic Sea, and ate impressive amounts of pizza. In Norway, she stayed at my parents’ summer house, explored the outdoor playground of my…

    Our year of introducing Nora to our favorite trails and places continues! When it comes to Melakwa, it’s definitely more of a favorite place than a favorite trail. I usually visit these lakes when I do the Tuscohatchie loop, so I can’t even remember the last time I hiked the trail back down. It’s pretty rocky and kind of sucks, especially when you’ve become used to the soft, rolling, luxurious trails of the Issaquah Alps. But the destination more than makes up for it – upper Melakwa Lake is one of my Official Happy Places. The last time I was here, it was just me…

    I slept until 5 this morning! It was amazing! What a difference a little sleep makes – I feel excited about life again. The new thing I tried last night was to use white noise from Nora’s Mamaroo. Hopefully this wasn’t a one-time thing. Since I actually had some energy again, it turned into a wonderful day. I manically cleaned the kitchen and living room in the morning, then took Nora for a two-mile walk on the trail before it got too hot. We also went to the playground so she could hit the swings and stare in awe at the older kids. Back home, I made lunch for both of us:…

    Ugh, gaah, etc etc. Sleep deprivation really messes you up. I’ve never been a good sleeper, but I naively thought that after having a baby, I would be so exhausted that sleep would come easily. Nope. Worse than ever. I’ll wake up at the slightest noise (like a squirrel jumping onto our fence outside, even though I’m inside, wearing earplugs) and then not be able to fall back asleep the rest of the night. Waking up for the day at 2AM many nights in a row = ugh. It turns me into an unmotivated, physically and emotionally drained, sugar-craving, clumsy shell of a human being.

    This girl would be a mermaid in another world. She taught herself how to swim when she was four and we were at the beach and Mexico and was doing a front flip off the diving board when she barely had turned 5 years old. Now she loves doing back flips off the diving board and edge of the pool. It kills me how daring she is but I also love watching her push herself at the same time. A mermaid party was a perfect theme for her pool party! Cake was made by Megan Faulkner Brown the founder of Sweet Tooth Fairy! She works at the Provo location. We had treasure chests for decoration and a treasure…

    The beginning of June I got to tag along with Collin on a work trip, which also included getting a crown on my tooth from our dentist friend. For someone who gets anxiety going to the dentist, I wasn’t looking forward to the trip. But the tooth work was surprising a breeze because apparently they have these new machines that make a crown in under an hour and match your tooth identically. So cool! As soon as we got that out of the way, our friends in Portland gave us a grand tour of the city with non-stop eating and exploring. Portland, Oregon became one of my favorite cities very…

    This is such a great kids’ craft for summer and would make cute decor for a BBQ or party! First, I diecut most of the shapes using my Silhouette Cameo. Then, my girls help fold all the pieces and also handcut some of the half circles for the watermelon layers because sometimes I like having less perfect cutting. Gives it a little more charm. Next, they added watermelon seeds with a Sharpie to the red shapes. Last, I hot glued all the shapes together and glued them to some twine.

      When I first saw the Dear Lizzy 12×12 floral mask, I knew it would look amazing with hot pink spray mist! I decided to mist a bunch of white cardstock and then create a colorful backdrop in my daughter’s room using recent photos and memorabilia. When it comes to masks and spray mists, I like to use both the positive and negative sides of the design. In this photo, I used the negative image by laying the mask on the paper and spraying overhead. To use the positive image, I flipped the ink-covered mask over and “stamped” it on the cardstock. I love the mix of both…

    26 Jul 2015 | 5:58 pm
    Continuing with the theme of childhood imagination, these are the last two collage in the series. Poppet For the background of these two collages I used paper that I had altered.  In the collage above I used a gelatin print. Below I used an altered National Geographic page. Fortress I found working within a theme to be challenging, as I usually just arrange scraps and pieces on my work surface until something jumps out at me. For this series it took longer to cultivate the images and I found myself spending a good chunk of time going through magazines and image files.

Then came refinishing the floors and stairs, and long story short we got kicked out of the basement area for a huge chunk of time which included access to my computer. We're now 99% finished with this renovation. My last post in April included demo, framing, rough-ins  drywall, and toothing in new hardwood for the kitchen.  Then we just…

Well, she was born and raised in the US, went to college in the UK, married a Brit and they just had a boy about a year ago. She has a very popular YouTube channel, was a Garden Girl for Two Peas in a Bucket, and has two line with American Crafts. I love her videos. They keep me company while I'm scrapping and bring me inspiration when I'm lacking. They are long enough that I'm not always having to click on a new one and yet short enough to not bore…

    I'd been working on this layout of Little Man for a while. I started it before I cleaned out my scrap room last month so it's been started for probably three months???There were a few things going on with this layout.  I had this photo printed up with a white border for some reason, I really wanted to use 6x6 papers, and I wanted to use that title technique.The title was made using a Spritzer. It's an old tool that Tim Holtz recently reintroduced. I stuck my gold Sharpie pen in there and misted around an acrylic piece to create the negative image. I also outlined it with a gold gel pen.

    Today it's been six months since my grandma passed. She was my last remaining grandparent and a very big part of our lives.The hardest part is when I think, "I should call Gran and tell her..." and then I realize that I can't. She loved to hear what was going on with us. That Aud got fearlessly on the school bus for the first time. That Mickey can now make three pointers on the basketball court. That I've kept the house clean for the last two months. She would have loved that last one.I drive by where she used to live every time I go into town. When we bought our house she was so excited that…

    1. His values. He has an old-fashioned work ethic that makes the older generation respect him and the younger generation emulate him.2. His love of children. He is a great dad and loves kids and babies and young people as much as I do. And, they love him too!3. His masculinity. He is tall and strong and capable. He has lots of guy friends and loves sports and beer and mowing our lawn. He's a man's man.4. His femininity. (Oh, he's gonna hate this one.) He watches Lifetime movies and will talk to me for hours in the middle of the night if something is bothering him. He also cried at our wedding…

    I've slowly but surely been making my way through my 2015 Project Life® album. I've included a few spreads/weeks in recent Story classrooms, as well as in the Type workshop, as examples related to the content. Making it happen. That's what it's all about. Most of these weeks already have some content when I start them - might have photos already printed, might have yellow sticky notes with story reminders, might have journal cards already completed or something else along those lines. The bottom line is usually there's something in the pockets for each week…

    A girl can't have too many stationeries or planner (for that matter), can she? =) It's quite an essential for a work-from-home mom to have my life and work compartmentalized. So having more than 1 planner definitely helps in getting things sorted!My home office space doubles up as my creative space in the night and having it organised and tamed definitely helps me in keeping some sanity. =) So currently, GOLD has to be the color of the month (*Still)....it still makes one feel like a million dollar. ha!Planners which are sparkly are really quite special =).

Here's a layout using one of my favourite collection this season - Atlas Collection by Pink Paislee's.I used a whole lot of clear elements from this collection and simply adore the outcome.Layering transparency one on top of another is really cool!Besides the clear elements from the Ephemera Pack, I love Atlas Thickers Foil Chipboard! I added the iridescent thicker for my title. It’s dazzling when it catches light and shows luminous colours that seem to change when seen from different angles. Really pretty!

    COME TO MAMA!! This sweet thing now lives with me. I’m talking about the printer…not the cat. The cat also lives with me but today I’m much more excited about the printer. Sorry Abby. In an inexplicable but very welcome burst of decisiveness and motivation mixed with a little frustration, yesterday I finally decided that this was going to be the day that I finally buy a printer. It was time to suck it up, stop Googling printer reviews and just PICK ONE ALREADY. It’s been well over a year since my old beloved Canon ip4300 died so I’ve been using a super cheapo printer that my…

  • As it Happens scrapbooking video :: A Collage of Embellishments for Father's Day [10]

    Shimelle Laine
    10 Jul 2015 | 3:48 am
    We have taken really goofy pictures for many years now. Having a child now makes this socially acceptable. WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS? I have no better or more flowery way to express this sentiment. Just know, we continue to embrace goofy photos. I think you need a warning about that before you scroll down and see the full scrapbook page and all its goofy photo glory. It’s also been a while since I created a page that takes a little longer, with lots of embellishments that come together in a collage, bit by bit. I don’t plan out what supplies I’m going to use and just let…
  • Scrapbooking with old and new supplies [13]

    Shimelle Laine
    29 Jun 2015 | 2:04 pm
    Following on from those stages of grief, one thing that has helped me grapple with the acceptance stage has been the freedom to use absolutely anything on a page without thinking about whether it would be in stock or on sale or anything like that. Admittedly, one of the reasons I liked designing for Two Peas was that we didn’t have strict rules on what we needed to use. I think I would really struggle to hold a long-term commitment to design with the same kit or anything like that really. I’ve not done it, so maybe I am wrong. But while we had the freedom to use whatever we liked,…
  • The scrapbook page that took me a year to finish [19]

    I found this page a few weeks ago, in pieces, sitting in a tray I had moved from my desk to a shelf to a drawer to a cupboard, pushing it further and further from my sight in hopes it would also be out of mind, I suppose. This is the layout I was working on when I received the email that Two Peas was closing. That was a year ago today. Don’t worry, the date isn’t marked in my mind that dramatically. Timehop reminded me, of course. That day wasn’t particularly nice and the days that followed had a fair amount of confusion. What is it that the kids say today? ‘All the…
  • How to use letterpress plates with the Big Shot (and a travel layout process video!) [9]

    It seems absolutely ages since I pulled out the kraft cardstock to scrapbook some travel photos, since I feel pretty spoilt for choice with baby photos these days. With a week away (part work, part play) last month, it seemed time to bring the two together, and kraft cardstock feels like an old friend I haven’t seen in years, yet the conversations start just where they left off. I’m tempted to say the rest of the scrapbooking world can keep all that white cardstock for their backgrounds and I’ll just stick to patterns and kraft. It’s a happy combination. I was also…

    While trying to find the right balance in living life first and scrapbooking it second (and possibly remembering to do the laundry third), I’ve found myself very grateful for a few strategies that have always helped me get the most from my scrapbooking supplies and my scrapbooking time. I’ve long wanted to avoid those creative moments of just staring at a piece of paper and willing it to tell me exactly what to do, but now I am so aware of any time I spend standing still at my scrapping desk. I need to move, I need to cut paper, I need to stick things together with glue and write…

    This lesson from Amy Kingsford first appeared as a part of the membership class “Canvas.” For that class and over 60 more, join us. by Amy Kingsford There are several ways to convey emotions and establish meaning on your scrapbook pages. Some of us rely on our photos and words to shoulder this responsibility while others look to embellishments and patterned papers.  I’d like to share yet another option for setting tone on your layouts.

      Blurred background are currently trendy in web and graphic design. She how our team has used this inspiration for their scrapbook pages. As you look at these pages, think about what stories you have to tell that would benefit from a blurred foundational piece. Kelly Prang says, “I struggle with extreme nearsightedness and have worn glasses for the past 33 years.  Without my glasses, I cannot see much at all.  I wanted to evoke a sense of how things look without my corrective lenses. I wanted to show the funny side effects of being a pet parent with a dog who matches our floor…

When you enlarge an older family photo but keep the original crop, there’s a good chance you’ll have open space to accommodate journaling and titles as Emily Pitts has done on “Work it Baby.”  Photographers weren’t as composition savvy, and there’s usually open space around your subject.

      Double exposures are trendy in graphic and print design right now. See how they gave us inspiration for scrapbook page storytelling on both paper and digital pages. Ronnie Crowley says, “My page is all about my ‘struggle’ of being English in America – even after 13 years. I record a list of things that still make me English and then the things that have changed.” “T create a double exposure of myself and the British flag, I used a layer mask in Photoshop.

      In an attempt to catch up with Project Life, I’m tackling my 2014 album, one spread at a time. Since I didn’t have many photos for week 33 and 34 of 2014, I decided to combine the weeks and do two weeks in one spread, instead of a typical one week on two pages spread. For this, I used two sets of journaling cards, Dwell and At Week’s End, to create a spread for two weeks next to each other. Even though I had two very different weeks, here’s how I unified the pages: mix both sets of journaling cards on both sides of the spread repeat elements – such as…
