    Usually, I save a project or two for the monthly Gossamer Blue blog hop. But, we are skipping it this month due to the fact that everyone is pretty busy. Additionally, many of us are working on our December Daily albums and will be sharing those pages. I'll be uploading my completed pages soon. Getting good photos when I work all day and am home only when it's dark, has been a challenge!Here is the second spread I made using the December kits. I used lots of kraft on here.

    The bedroom next to ours stood empty for the longest time (and by “empty” I mean filled with random hiking gear and outdoor cushions), but this spring we finally had the motivation to spruce it up and get it ready for our little nugget. We decided on a woodlandish theme, which means that Nora inherited the awesome bear beanbag JK got me for my birthday a couple of years ago and we finally got to use the little rug we couldn’t resist at IKEA. The couch used to live in the office and is fairly ugly, but it turns into a bed, something that might come in handy in the future. The…

    Well it’s time to start wrapping all those Christmas gifts! I’m awaiting one more delivery, but this weekend I plan to attack wrapping the stack that’s already here. And I will definitely be adding the two free printable wrapping papers to my gift wrapping kit. The first one shown above from Say yes, is great for kids, because they can color the shapes in before, or after wrapping. These papers, from Pat Pat Pattern are more graphic and sophisticated. While you’re over there, poke around the site a bit, there are lots more freebies to be found!

     Ahhh, Christmas lights! Does anything else give us that wonderful Christmas feeling? But it can be frustrating to capture them in photos the way that you see them, or to get all the settings right for taking those lovely blurred shots. Never fear, Lara at Overstuffed has all the information you need to take four different kinds of creative photos this year.  Experiment with silhouettes, starbursts, bokeh and portraits. You’ll need an SLR camera and for some of the photos, a tripod too.

I’m itching to tryout the Egregio, Governor and Always There fonts on a project or two soon. Remember most fonts are free for personal use only, so be sure to check out the font licenses when you download.

You are certainly in for a treat, as the design team has been working really hard to create with the gorgeous December Memories kit.I have gotten started with my cover and base pages. I'm still not sure how I will organize it. I might do random memories throughout the month or do a photo a day prompt. I think I will see what kinds of things we end up doing. Here is the cover of my album. I decided to keep it simple with the bold stripes. I added the silver bookplate from my stash.Here is my intro page. I love doilies,…

So, I try to keep focused on the good in life. I am so lucky to have a wonderful family, caring friends, a job I love and a hobby that I'm absolutely obsessed with . There is gratitude to be found every day.Thought I'd share these cards I recently made for Emma's. I love the combination of the Petaloo flowers, Prima gems and Kaisercraft tags. And of course, I have to have some doilies!So, if you are celebrating today, I hope you are surrounded…

    Blog posts are scarce these days, so here’s a lazy one where I just copy the text from a facebook update where I was tagged to post five photos that make me happy. I was trapped under an adorable, sleeping baby at the time, so I only went two years back in time. The best vacation ever on St. John in 2013, marinating in sunshine and happiness. We went back this year, but since I spent much of the trip puking (for excellent reasons), it didn’t quite reach 2013′s level of awesomeness. From a trail run to Mt. Defiance in 2013. So many good outdoor adventures that summer, and I…

    Nora turned two months last week and decided she was more than old enough for her first visit to Mount Rainier. Mama and papa were happy to oblige! Between the end of Daylight Saving Time, a late morning nap for Nora, and the fact that everything takes about seven times longer than you expect it to when you’re travelling with a wee babby with a prodigious appetite, we didn’t hit the trail until about an hour before sunset. No worries, it gave us enough time to mosey along on the touristy trails above Paradise. Nora insisted on keeping her cute little head outside of the Moby wrap…

    Nora’s birth was even more emotional than I had thought it would be. My grandmother had passed away two days before, so there were huge, sad, bittersweet, circle-of-life type feelings swirling around in me on top of the all-encompassing love I felt the second I laid eyes on Nora. Our bodies are pretty amazing things. I keep looking at this wonderful little creature and thinking we made her? From scratch? This perfect little being? Man, I love her. The birth itself was wonderful – I know it’s easy to say that now, since all memories of pain just evaporated the second I saw my…

    Less than 24 hours to explore Brussels but i was determined to see all i could in this cool European City. With Andrew as my tour guide and constant companion, sight-seeing was an awesome experience. After visiting some chocolate shops we made our way over to Grand Place, the central square in Brussels. This square has beautiful guildhalls and the town hall.  This town hall with its gothic designs towers over the square. Every little detail is so very cool and a sight to see.  The opulenant guildhalls are stunningly ornate. The gold details on the buildings are majestic and shine…

It wasn't much time but every minute i am with Andrew i treasure for these 4 years apart aren't easy. So walking around Brussels with Andrew, hand in hand, was such a blessing.  We took the train in from our hotel at the airport to the central station. i love that first step into a new city when excitement fills the air and my pulse quickens.

He had been there a couple times before so he was really wanting to share this beautiful city with me.  i wasn't sure what to expect. i have been blessed with traveling a lot of places, most of them after the age of 30, but nothing quite like this. i don't speak Japanese and there isn't a lot of English spoken here but amazingly enough it was fairly easy to get around using a bit of common sense.  We left the Asakusa…

We planned earlier this year when we found out he was going to be home that i would fly back with him to Doha, Qatar giving us 3 weeks together. 3 weeks is a luxury that i am so thankful to have with him. We flew to Doha last week. Together. We've never flown to Doha together before and it was nice to be with him for the long 12 flight. We left Denver on Tuesday mid-morning via Houston and arrived on Wednesday evening…

It was the perfect way to (legally) start celebrating Christmas. I stamped the brown paper with a stamp from the newest Studio Calico kit. Added a berry branch from our yard and some tags and instax photo. The next package is brown and kraft paper from Ikea. I also added a banner stamped with my Dear Lizzy phrase stamp and layered with a cork cut snowflake. The bottle brush tree dyed using Tim Holtz ink. See tutorial here. I’m actually surprised…

She’s seriously is the most cheerful of my kiddies. Pure joy streams out of her and she’s like a bouncing ball of silliness. Then in the blink of an eye she can throw a tantrum and from a mile away you would run and hide scared of this toddler gremlin. haha just kidding. Kind of.

    One thing that is making more sense to me as I get older is that pure, genuine love can overcome even the hardest of situations. There are a couple relationships in my life that get the toll of everyday stress yet still flourish and grow instead of being squashed. These individuals or  “angels” (ha!) who deal with my wacky hormonal days or my ‘sorry I’m just hungry’ moments get the brunt of difficult experiences yet rise above it and become stronger. I have no clue how this is possible… except that it’s real love. Like really real. Something…

    Advent calendars are fabulous things.  We've had all sorts at our house - chocolate, felt Nativity scene, and Lego ones.  This year I came across a wonderful printable on Pinterest  - a scripture Advent calendar thanks to One Dog Woof.  Every day up through Christmas is a different scripture verse telling the story of Jesus's birth.  You just print the pdfs onto your own paper and cut out. This Advent calendar is a wonderful addtion to the chocolate ones the kids have, helping to reinforce what Christmas is all about. Each day we pull down that day's tag and read the…

So I've spent many a shopping trip looking around for suitable items to replicate this costume - cheaply if possible. I ended up in the junior department of Nordstrom and grabbed three white/ivory lacy camisole tops for her to try. Rachel can fit into an extra small, although the lengths are quite long. I…

    I did it! I finished my album! Well, I have a 4x6 spot and a two 2x2 spots to complete but other than that, I'm done!!! Woot!!!These are the leftovers from my kit. I just tucked all of this in my Project Life album to use on that week's page. I keep a 12x12 page protector in the middle of each week in my album to add memorabilia and other stuff from that week and it all fit nicely in there.I did a video walk through of the album and shared all the pages as well as some info on how I completed it.Products Used: Kit(w/stamp set) & Gold Album-Ali Edwards, Inks-Stampin' Up!

    This last week I took part in Ali Edward's Week In the Life project. I'd tried it a few times and never completed it. This year, with a lot of forward notice and the added incentive of buying her kit, I did it! I documented each day and now I'd like to share some of those with you.Here are some of my favorite photos from the week!I've been working on putting together the album and even with a big break for a trip to Hawaii(I know, rough life!) I feel like I've gotten really far! I've got all my pictures in it and quite a bit of the journaling and embellishing done. I probably will have it…

    Welcome to  December Daily® 2014 | Day Eighteen.  We finally carved out time to go see Santa the other night and today I'm adding that story and an enlarged photo.  This is one of those where you have to buy the photo. This year there was a sign up for no cell phone or other camera shots (which I respected) and I happily paid for one 5x7 photo. The one that ended up in my book (as a 6x8) got scanned in and enlarged so it would fit my pocket and so I could get all the marketing stuff off from around the edges and I could adjust the color which wasn't awesome. The "2014"…

    Welcome to  December Daily® 2014 | Day Seventeen.  One of my most favorite things in December is sitting in the living room in the dark with a fire in the fireplace and the lights on the tree glowing. I finally took advantage of that with Aaron and a bottle of wine last night and it was so, so great. It was one of those times, and one of those conversations, where I felt like I was exactly where I was supposed to be in the world.  Here's a look at how I told the story for Day Seventeen:  On my 4x6 photo of the fireplace I added "so loved this moment" which is…

    Friday in Week In The Life™ this year happened to fall on Halloween.  This is the day I added no words to my blog post - partly because I was just tired at the end of the day (hey, it was Halloween) when I was putting it together and partly because it showed a very pointed difference from the previous days - an opportunity for all of us to think about how the words play in our projects.  When it came time to get the photos and the words into the album the process was different from previous days because I didn't already have those words easily accessible to just copy…

We share a love of going to the movies and of the Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings stories. It was an early Christmas/love-you-let's-do-something-fun present for the two of us to do together. I've got something planned for Anna this weekend as well.  Here's a look at how I worked with the story in the album:  I did end up taking one photo at the theater so I might end up enlarging that and using…

Now that our many nieces and nephews are older, we purchase gift cards to their favorite stores…and I can fit almost everything in my purse! Still, I want those packages to be special. The perfect solution – decorated handmade gift card holders. While there are many gift card holder templates out there, I wanted something different.

    When I saw the Shimelle collection I was instantly taken with the bold shades of pink, turquoise, and orange. I love color, and gladly embrace it any chance that I get! I couldn’t wait to dive into the glittery rub-ons, die-cuts with gold foil and embossed images, wood veneer, layered stickers and printed cork pieces. I also fell in love right away with the two packs of Thickers letter stickers, included in the collection. I couldn’t wait to get the collection in my hot little hands and create with it. And, even though I love Thickers (I do, I really do!) and hoard them any chance…

    When I opened my American Crafts box with the new Shimelle line, I couldn’t stop looking through each and every product. So many possibilities with great colors, patterns and embellishments. But I kept going back to the circle alphabet letters. They are just simply gorgeous. I wanted to use them in a unique way. I picked the orange, pink/orange, and green colors from the 12×12 pattern paper pad to cut the stars from the Silhouette, and the circles with a 1” circle punch. I cut enough circles to cut some of the them in half and adhere to a full circle. Then I embossed those with the…

The colours and designs are all up my alley. I knew I wanted to showcase all the products I had. I opted to create five different projects to show how amazingly beautiful the collection is. When I scrapbook I tend to make layouts but with this collection I had many ideas. I decided to create a card and layout, to decorate an envelope, embellish a 12” by 12” photo, and I also was inspired to make a simple mini book containing…

    Use these 10 steps to quickly crop photos, select papers and arrange it all into a two-pager with a focal point and lots of detail shots. 1. Start with a variety of photos from a big event. Choose one photo to emphasize and crop to 5″ x 4″. Print with narrow white border or cut narrow white mat. 2. Choose a neutral base (like Kraft!) and two patterned papers. Notice that the two patterned papers here were chosen so that they won’t overpower photos. That’s because the blue is a tone-with-neutral (white) and the red has very a small dot motif–it’s not a…

    Each of us have our own culture and approach to celebrating December holidays.

Yet other holiday mentors can be influences sought out in books, TV shows and websites. Below are 8 stories about holiday mentors.

At the beginning of my album, I included a fun title page. The first page in my album documents a few outtakes from out Christmas Card photo shoot.  I loved this shot of the four of us, and it didn’t make the cut for our card, but I thought it made a…

    I think it’s safe to say that 2014 has been the year of the most change for me as a memory keeper, and it’s also been one of my most fully documented years. My One Little Word for 2014 was focus and one of the class exercises in January included making a “more/less” type list of goals I had for the year. Looking back I was better with some than others – but it’s a little telling that I tacked “more creativity | less “work”” to the end of my list almost as an afterthought, and that moment still stands out in my mind. I remember that I decided to put “work” in quotes…
