    Since society (and the fact that I possess a basic sense of shame) prohibits me from eating Qdoba taco salads for every single meal, I’m trying to at least make my food at home reminiscent of that glorious bowl of goodness. First step: making a copycat creamy chipotle sauce. I prefer to use nuts instead of dairy, so mine is cashew-based. It obviously doesn’t taste quite like the original, but it’s smoky and smooth, and it’s good enough that I keep making it several times a week. Chipotle Cashew Cream Dressing: 1 cup soaked cashews (I usually soak them for an hour or…

This nostalgic, musical revue tells the story of the 'Plaids,' a close-harmony, male ensemble with high aspirations. The group's dreams of recording success come to an abrupt end in 1964, after their car collides with a bus of schoolgirls headed to see the Beatles' debut on the Ed Sullivan show.

    Last week found me still in my Gold planner. I absolutely adore this planner. The color is just so decadent. It's not all fake and shiny. I think I can honestly say this is my favorite one right now. :)I had a lot of fun decorating this spread. There were several items that I used from my Pinkfresh embellishment kit. I layered some items onto the PL card.  I wrote my to do list on the back of it. The little gold flair badge is from there. I hot glued it to the clip. Love making clips right now. The glitter bows came in a Freckled Fawn kit and I made clips out of those as well.For my…

They are filled with Pink Paislee, Pinkfresh Studio, My Mind's Eye, and of course, lots o Gossamer Blue exclusives.Here are my spreads for the month. I am still pretty far behind, these photos are from last October. I am pretty sure that once I finish up 2014, I'll be doing 2015 differently. Trying to capture something for every week has bogged me down. I think I will be selecting different topics and documenting the stories that go with them, rather than trying to capture it all.

    Honestly, it’s felt (and looked) like spring since around New Year’s, but now it’s officially here – huzzah! Every year I get all giddy and excited when I spot my first woodland spring flowers of the season. We found – or, rather, our noses led us to – skunk cabbage on Cougar Mountain in February, and yesterday the Redmond Watershed Preserve was flush with trillium. Aaah! I can feel that spring fever bubbling inside, and I’m getting all excited about the outdoors and mountains again. Hiking! Gardening! Mushrooming! Speaking of fever, our little walk…

    I’m finally getting started on a baby album for Nora! Except that it’s really for me…and since most of the photos and happenings are being documented in photo books, I’m free to be all sorts of self-indulgent and just scrapbook exactly what I want to in this album. It’s also a great place to store all the actual scraps, like the prettified, non-official birth certificate we got at the hospital, ultrasound photos, and the chart from Nora’s first week of life where we noted every single feeding and diaper change (looking at that thing now, I understand why I…

    …why we never hike to Rattlesnake Ledge during the day anymore. TNAB? Yes. Dawn Patrol? Yes. Stopping by on a Rattlesnake Mountain traverse? Yes. In the middle of the day on a sunny weekend? No. No no no. Just no. Even though this was a weekend in February, not July, all of Puget Sound was there to enjoy the weather and the views. That’s the thing, Rattlesnake is popular for a reason – it’s a very easy trail with a huge payoff. And who am I to complain about the fact that this many people are out enjoying the trails? Especially when so many of those hikers are kids.

    One of the good things about being an introverted hermit homebody is that I don’t feel like I had to give up on a lot of stuff when I had a baby. We don’t eat out much (uhm, picking up Qdoba doesn’t count), nor do we like to go out and party. (Okay, so introverted, homebody, and just plain old.) I was discussing this with JK last weekend and came to the conclusion that the only things I really miss about my old life are: 1) sleeping in when I need to and 2) being able to run the downhills on hikes. Not exactly a huge sacrifice to make in exchange for a life shared with the…

    Yesterday was ‘one of those days’ or I guess the whole week was. I didn’t feel like myself. I didn’t have motivation for much at all. Just blah… such blah-ness has lingered around more than normal recently. Not sure if it’s a combination of staying up too late and exercising more. Collin keeps blatantly pointing out, “You’re a mom of four crazy, active kids.” Good point. Well, somehow I had this bizarre inspiration that a cheap trip to Dollar Store for yellow, floating faces could lift my sprits. We tied them to random cars and places…

    There are definitely signs of spring happening outside. Yesterday on a walk with Lola and Quincey we each picked a couple handfuls of tiny flowers. Quincey wanted to make something with them but we watered the flowers and washed their toesies instead. This shelf is from Target and most of the stuff inside I found from there too. The glass bottle and jar from Ikea. Still need to add something to the frame. Surprisingly it’s been a couple months and this plant is still alive. We actually bought plantation shutters for this window but I love the light that comes through and…

    I've found my decorating style over time has changed and moved more sleek and minimalist.  It has a lot to do with having small children leaving toys & Legos all over the floor, I'm sure.  I'm into more modern -- and particularly midcentury modern -- and this was way before Mad Men.  I've spent way too much time on both Pinterest and Houzz in planning this renovation. You can find my inspiration boards for the kitchen here, the downstairs bath, laundry and sunroom here.  As we started going along I started yet another board just to keep our actual design choices in…

    I haven't been as active on the blog as I recently and for a good reason. We're about to start a major home renovation that's been a long time coming and has taken up a fair amount of my time. Our house was built in 1968 and had never been updated when we bought it. It's a one-level ranch with a walk-out basement. We've been in our house for 10 1/2 years, and we've managed to do a little bit every year:   stripping wallpaper out of every bedroom, updating two bathrooms, removing hideous paneling in the basement , replacing light fixtures and painting every wall…

When I put this away last week I knew I had to mainly work on the tree and the hedge row around it.  I also decided to remove a large plant in the bottom right of the picture that just wasn't doing anything for the composition. I did, however, add a couple of small touches that weren't strictly keeping with the monochromatic scheme. You may spot a tiny bit of purple and orange in the painting. I really stretched my range of greens in this one, but I love how it turned out.  I definitely am going to reach for my Blue Earth cerulean set to do more…

    Flamingos rule this week at Pink Paislee! This beautiful, tall and elegant creature found its way to my layout.Pink Paislee’s Citrus Bliss ephemera pack, chipboard stickers are so comprehensive and it is full of so many sweet surprises that could be used in your everyday crafty projects. Here, I used several elements from the ephemera pack to embellish my layout.As you can see, Polaroid Frames are dominant on this page. Each window is hand painted with water color and embellished with ephemera/stickers from the same collection. Would love for you to swing by PINK PAISLEE'S BLOG =)

    I know I hoard a lot more than I should and am really glad I've overcome the inertia to use up my supplies and create layouts which are meaning full and with products I really love. While waiting for new fabulous products from Webster's Pages, Heidi Swapp and Maggie Holmes, I'd better start clearing some of the past season's products….Here's a layout using a birthday photo #throwback 2 years ago. A classic picture which embodied the simple joy of celebrating a sweet birthday...A couple more layouts in the pipeline… =)

My love for Yellow is seasonal and so is my love for pink.Pink Paislee's Citrus Bliss + Bella Rouge Collection blends well with each other.This Tag-in-Bag combo was created with yellow and pink as dominant colors and I love how citrus pop yellow can co-exist with sweet pink.

It’s so easy to get lost in taking pictures of everyone else and telling their stories that you end up forgetting your about your own. Your story is a really important one to record. Not just for yourself but for your children to one day read and enjoy when they marvel at the amazing albums and pages you’ve created. With that in mind, this month’s Hello Collection is designed to put the focus back on you. So don’t be…

  • As it Happens scrapbooking video :: Is Disney about the queue or the ride? [5]

    Shimelle Laine
    26 Mar 2015 | 3:53 am
    If it’s working, carry on with it, right? And so goes the idea of just turning on the camera to capture a scrapbook page as it happens, the supply set of Studio Calico’s Walden scrapbooking kit and Underground Project Life kit, and the idea of scrapping Disney in colours other than red, yellow, black, and white. I said last time that I made one terrible error in taking Wonder Boy to Disneyland. It was not remembering that the Peter Pan ride is entirely in the dark. It was the first thing we took him on and it scared him to bits. Apologies to the lovely, well behaved young ladies…

    Of all the years I’ve been attending the winter trade show in Anaheim, I’ve basically ignored Disneyland until last year. This is somewhat ridiculous, as it is literally across the street from the trade show, but for whatever reason it just never crossed my mind to book extra time in California to take in some Disney fun. Until last year, when some local friends convinced me to wobble around the park pregnant before I caught my plane, and then this year, now known as ‘let’s take the baby to Disneyland’ day. For the months ahead, I kept having this conversation…
  • On deciding what goes in which scrapbook [20]

    16 Mar 2015 | 8:30 am
    Last week one of the questions that came up was how do you decide what goes in the Project Life album and what makes it to a 12×12? and I thought about this all weekend. I kept thinking perhaps I could come up with an amazing answer that would have real sparkle and clarity and insight. I don’t have that answer. Shame. Basically, I am totally going with the moment and just not worrying about it. So far every photo that has appeared on a 12×12 page about Wonder Boy is also somewhere sitting in a pocket in his Project Life baby book. But the journaling isn’t duplicated, and…

    Shimelle Laine
    13 Mar 2015 | 5:02 am
    Many months ago, I shared my original plan for keeping a baby’s first year album in the Project Life format. Time for a bit of a reality check, I think. So far, this album has four printed 4×6 landscape images for every week up to three weeks ago (I order prints roughly monthly, so that makes sense), all placed in the correct pockets, with each week’s page protectors labelled with a post-it note for the date. All of those weeks in 2014 also have the additional photos printed (at a smaller size) and just stored in one of the pockets for that week, uncropped and not planned for…

    I know it’s early days, but so far I’m making good on my quest to get using those supplies I ordered when I wasn’t really stepping anywhere near my scissors and glue. It means I have a page that is out of season for this hemisphere, but I’ve never really been one for having to scrap in line with the calendar anyway, so why not a bit of crunchy leaves and knitted hoodies? In pretty much every video I’ve ever shared, I’ve had a specific goal from the beginning, like a technique, design concept, or some sort of problem and solution that guided the process. I…

  • Ideas for Including Trendy “Easter Eggs” into Your Scrapbook Page Storytelling

    Amy Kingsford
    24 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    Incorporating nods to current trends in your scrapbook page storytelling is a great way to incorporate “the times” into your memory keeping. Celebrity happenings and fads spread faster than ever in our socially-connected lives now. Such nods or inside jokes are referred to as “Easter eggs” and  have been intentionally incorporated into computer programs, video games, movies, and books. Our Creative Team has made pages that are not specially about celebrities or fads but that incorporate a nod to them. Kelly Prang says, “My youngest daughter daughter loves…

  • Blocks and Triangles

    26 Mar 2015 | 12:00 am
    As International Scrapbooking Day approaches (usually the first Saturday in May), I am starting to prepare for my twice-a-year printing of layouts. I wait for a sale and then print all of my pages at one time. As I was looking through my layouts from the last six months, I noticed something about my pages: I have two main styles of page design. I either use a visual triangle or a blocked design. This is not intentional. I know about basic design principles and what makes pages pleasing to the eye, but when I scrap or create templates, I usually just go with what I think looks good. I don't…
  • Emphasizing Paper or Elements

    25 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    Some of my pages feature paper heavily. Some of them use relatively little paper but are heavier on elements like paint, flowers and labels. Generally I can tell when I look at a kit, which direction I'll likely take it. Emphasizing the Paper If there are bold and fun colours, with a mix of black and white to serve as contrast, I like to focus on the papers in a kit. I do this by creating many, many paper layers. On the page below, I featured a lot of paper by creating shapes like rounded rectangles and circles and then clipping papers to them. I still used elements like the triangles and…
  • Scrapper's Best Friend

    24 Mar 2015 | 12:00 am
    My best friend for scrapbooking is my keyboard. It saves me a lot of time and energy! But there's one specific keyboard shortcut I'm thinking of right now. This is the shortcut that changed my life. It literally shave hours off my workflow. I shared my favorite shortcuts in this post, but if you learn only one shortcut, make it this one. But before I tell you more, let me explain exactly what a clipping mask is. A clipping mask: makes the top layer 'clip' to the shape of the layer below it hides (aka masks) any part of the top layer that is outside the pixels of the bottom layer is a…

First I will show you the end product of my hybrid page.  I used Better Together and At Week’s End digital kits. The first step in my process is to do a mock up of my layout in Photoshop.  I do this…

    It’s officially starting to feel like spring in my neck of the woods.  How about yours? This spread covers the stories & photos of mid-Febraury and includes a mix of wonderful One Little Bird products. Generally my spreads are based on the colors found in the photos I’m using, but from time to time I run into a grouping of photos that really lack color. I really only had green and a little yellow to work with, so in this spread I chose to incorporate extra color (more yellow, blue and turquoise) through journaling cards. One way I added more color was by putting photos in…
