I absolutely fell in love with the cards that were designed by Peppermint Granberg in Add On 3. I knew as soon as I saw them that I wanted to create a page with them as the focus. Here is what I made:I selected my favorite cards and then added a couple of the Amy Tangerine tags.

It's still cold, but being at the beach on a cold day is always better than being at home. I'm loving the Outer Banks. We've done lots of fun things this weekend - driving along the beach, eating Carolina BBQ, visiting the Wright Bother's memorial, taking long walks with the beach with the dogs. I could definitely get used to this.So, here are a couple of cards that I've made recently. This first one uses some…

    The last few weeks of Project Life are super stripped down. It's amazing how much faster it goes when I just focus on getting the photos in and just a tiny bit of writing. Sometimes, that's all I'm in the mood for. Less fancy. More basic. Like this: Other than a High of the Week journal card and a little bit of type, this is about as simple as it gets. Seriously. I loved going on that road trip with Aidan. As much as I am going to miss her, I'm equally excited for this young woman's blazingly bright future.  For Week 15, I had to keep it simple again. Why?

    Every year when spring hits, my hiking mojo comes back in full force after a winter of hibernation, and I start getting all manic and excited about summer hiking trips. This year I’m not actually going to plan any trips since I have no idea of what I’ll be able to (or want to) do, but I’ll gladly take advantage of the energy and excitement and hike as much as possible while I still can. Enter TNAB. Sort of. I’ve never been able to keep up with those loons and their afterburners, so I obviously won’t be able to now, but it’s such a good incentive to get out…

I think I’ll start by covering some of our favorite beaches and snorkeling spots, then writing a summary post with other tips and ideas for this little piece of paradise. St. John is part of the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean Sea. JK and I chose it as our vacation destination last year specifically because about 2/3 of the island is National Park land – we figured it would mean few resorts, good trails, and protected coral reefs for unbelievable snorkeling. We were not mistaken. To make the most of your trip there, buy a copy of the…

    Sorry to keep jumping wildly from season to season, but I never got around to writing about this trip, and it was just too purty and too important to skip. October was rough. Actually, the whole autumn season was rough. The hormones I was taking made me feel all sorts of not great, so I spent those darkening months gaining weight, fighting lethargy, and feeling very down in the dumps. Very few things were able to motivate me to get outside. One was mushroom hunting, which I’ll come back to later, and the other was the chance to finally see the golden larch trees in Headlight Basin in…

    I really hope I’ll be able to hike throughout my pregnancy, not just because it’s excellent for my physical health and that of the wee babby, but because, as I have learned over and over again throughout the years, it’s like Prozac to me. That said, right from the start I was surprised how much more difficult it felt to hike for two. I had somewhat naively thought it would feel just like normal, but with an increasingly heavy backpack carried on my stomach. Hah! First lesson I learned: don’t make any grand plans; every pregnancy is different. Some people don’t…

    Today my pastel class started back up for the spring. I pulled out the painting of the Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence I started in February, whispering a quick thanks that all the rain from yesterday had stopped. I'm pretty close to finished with this one. I spent time today working all over the paining, especially the windows. I changed the color of the building in the background - it was too light after my first pass on top of the underpainting. You can see I've been using the extra flap of UArt to test out my colors before applying them. I acquired some new colors in the month…

I've been working on my 2013 and 2014 albums - simultaneously - using my Project Life protectors and lots & lots of photo paper.  I had been waiting until getting some pages finished to share, but I keep skipping around. So, because I'm on a roll printing photos, I thought I'd share some in-progress pages. My first step was to place ephemera in pockets, which I did in January.  Now I'm going back and adding photos by month.  Iphoto makes it easy to do this with smart…

After looking through the photos this year, I went through some of the photos of springs-gone-by watching the girls grow up before my eyes. This layout features two sets of spring photos seven years apart, capturing the little moments as the years go by."Tradition"…

    Our family loves jazz. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin and Ella Fitzgerald will always put a little spring in our step. I chose "Beyond the Sea" by Bobby Darin as my music inspiration for this photo. Being a Navy family it always speaks to me of the sweetness of a homecoming after a long deployment."Somewhere Beyond the Sea" layout supplies:Glitz Design "Black & White" papers: Floral, Wood Grain, XOGlitz Design "Black & White" 6x6 paper padGlitz Design "Black & White" Alphabets & Words sticker sheetGlitz Design "Black & White" Titles & Accents sticker…

    One of the things I love about Glitz Design is the variety of their lines. Last week I used a photo of my younger daughter and set it off with soft, subtle pastels. This week my oldest is surrounded by bright and cheery pops of color. The photos we both taken on the same day, but the patterned papers gave a completely different feel to each project. For this layout layered lots of "77" goodies, including the striped alphabet stickers. The stripes ended up being a little too busy against the other patterns, so I colored over the letters with a black marker to help them stand out. I added a few…

    This week's Color Challenge incorporates a soft and feminine color pallet that fits right into my  girlie style. First, I used a makeup sponge to dab gold ink over a 12x12 stencil allowing the ink to fade out on the edges. Next I layered lots of light pink and light blue "Carpe Diem" goodies with vellum and strips of sheer ribbon. I secured all of the layers to the card stock by machine stitching a large gold heart over the layers. With a little smattering of finishing touches, the layout is complete. "Oh Happy Day" layout supplies:Glitz Design "Carpe Diem" paper: DiamondsGlitz…

    Glitter is an easy element to add a little punch to your projects. On this project I used a ruler and light pencil lines to draw stripes in the opposite direction of the stripes on the patterned paper. I traced over these lines with glitter glue, then for a little extra pop added a little more glitter on top. I added a touch of glitter to the edge of one of the vellum sheets, then sprinkled hexagon glitter across the page for just a little more sparkle. "All Dolled Up" layout supplies:Glitz Design "All Dolled Up" papers: Cherry Blossom, Bits & PiecesGlitz Design "Black & White"…

    Happy Tuesday and welcome to the April Colour Suite a monthly colour challenge I put together for my friends at Scrapbook & Cards Today. This month I continued my exploration of metallic and embraced silver. I figured it would be a beautiful compliment colour to radiant orchid my other inspiration for April. While I chose a glittery silver I think that colour is subject to interpretation and it could easily be used as a grey with these colours. The purple from my stash isn't quite the same shade as the one I originally chose for the challenge. I think purple is one of the hardest…

    We had a quiet little Easter around here. My parents showed up on Saturday afternoon – a pit stop for them on their way back down to the beach from the Seattle area. Aaron and the kids were here when they arrived so we had a full house for a few hours before Aaron and his crew headed back to their own house for their own celebrations. We had dinner (baked chicken & roasted broccoli) and then got down to the business of coloring the eggs I had hard-boiled earlier in the day. It was nothing fancy. It wasn’t a race to make the coolest eggs. It’s not pinterest worthy. But it…

I had been browsing the internet looking for a baby book. After finding one too many that didn’t fit my style I somehow ended up at twopeasinabucket.com and first saw what I would describe as “modern” scrapbooking that included a variety of photo sizes, journaling and embellishments on 12×12 or 8.5×11 cardstock foundations.

I love that she gets to run, run and run and that her coach is all about building each other up and teamwork and never giving up. I also loved seeing her out their on the field and her determination when she was really into it. Who knows if this is something she will continue to love but it’s great that she’s trying and having fun with her friends. Wants me to read Babar to her every night.

    Made using the WordSwag app I love pouring over my favourite scrapbookers' galleries and picking up new design ideas. I'm always so impressed with the way certain scrapbookers pay attention to the smallest details to make a page spectacular. One thing I've noticed is that the way paper is clipped to shapes matters! The way a pattern is cut-off at the edge should appear very intentional. Let's take a look at some examples. Solid Papers: Solid papers are straight-forward to clip to shapes because they have no pattern that can be cut-off or mis-aligned. Plaids: With plaids, you have the…

    I'm happy to be welcoming back Angie from Down This Road Designs to The Digi Files this month. Angie has a very versatile design style that can fit any mood or taste and she really rocks the themed kits. I love the bold graphic patterns, mixed media, and shabbiness that can be found in her designs. It was fun to visit with Angie about her designs, her life with her family, and where so much of her inspiration comes from; including her contribution this month.

  • New Release | Prix Fixe

    Peppermint
    17 Apr 2014 | 4:00 pm
    I’ve added a new kit in my shop this week! I know that food photography gets a bad rap in a lot of circles, but this one is for all of you “foodies” out there who insist on snapping that quick photo before taking your first bite. It’s become something of a calling card for me when I’m out with friends, one of them will throw an arm out and say “Everybody wait! Peppermint has to take a photo first.” Food photos (and pet photos) are an almost guaranteed “like” for me on social media, so I don’t know what all the fuss is about. Food…
  • Product Crush | Canon 4 x 6 Matte Photo Paper

    Peppermint
    16 Apr 2014 | 2:32 pm
    I am completely obsessed with this Canon 4×6 Matte Photo Paper and I have to talk a little bit about it here because it’s a game changer/showstopper/life altering sort of thing if you like to print a lot at home for hybrid projects – especially Project Life® and other pocket-style albums. I ordered it with a little bit of trepidation worried that it might be similar to the matte photo finish used on photo lab prints, but it’s actually a flat cardstock finish. Which means I can print all of my printable journaling cards two at a time with no paper waste, as compared…

  • Apr Featured Product | For the Record

    7 Apr 2014 | 9:04 pm
    For April I’ve chosen For The Record as the featured kit. April is always tax crunch time for me (I’m still not ready!) so I was drawn to the office themed touches in this collaboration with Liz of Paislee Press. You’ll save 30% on For the Record all month long, and if you have any layouts of your own to share using this kit (new or old!), please be sure to post them in my gallery at The Lilypad if you haven’t already, and then post a link to those layouts in the comments by 05/07/14 for a chance to win a $15 coupon to my store. For the month of April you’ll also receive…

  • Pop Quiz Graduation Card

    22 Apr 2014 | 12:30 am
       Get an early start on graduation cards, like the one I made here using Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz I want it all bundle.   The notebook paper was masked with a stencil and some Distress Inks (Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot, and Peacock Feathers). I also used Peacock Feathers to ink around the graduation cap, which comes in the Noteworthy package, and popped it up for some dimension. Besides the chipboard star on the top, the rest were stamped with the stamps that come in the Ephemera package. It's like a little package of treasure, and is where I found the red…

  • Easter Bunny Time

    19 Apr 2014 | 12:30 am
    It's almost time for the Easter Bunny!  The Bo Bunny Baby Bump Collection is made up of beautiful pastels that work well with Easter photos.  I made the Easter Eggs with my Cameo and SVG's Poplar Street Kit.  The photo mat borders also came in the kit.  I used the banners, tags and balloon from the Noteworthy pack and sticker sheet.Add a little bling and twine for the perfect touch.  I love this Easter Bunny photo of my kiddos and I'm excited to take them this year and so are they!  There will be three cuties this time around.  As you can see, The Baby Bump…
  • Pop Quiz School Layout

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:30 am
        Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz I want it all bundle couldn't be more perfect for all of your school projects, from kindergarten through college! It can be fun and young, with cute embellishments, but also more sophisticated and older depending on your needs.  For this page I wanted to capture my son's younger elementary days using an old Page Maps sketch from December 2006.I started with the chalkboard paper, which I inked with a little white ink to look like chalk. I stamped the date on the tag, where I stuck my favorite photo of him from that day, and added the ribbons that come in…
