    Tell us about your business. "They didn't ask you" was a standard line in our family when I'd see a product flaw and I had a solution. Many times, ideas I sent to companies were incorporated into re-designs and I'd receive the new & improved product as a thank you. When I began scrapbooking, my attempts at inkjet printing on vellum were inconsistent & unsatisfactory, and there wasn't anything on the market to improve it. After many weeks of experimenting, the Perfect Printing Pouch was born. All my friends wanted one! (It has been renamed since it is now…

    I love creating card sets! This month, I made a set using my Gossamer Blue kits. They came together really easily. I decided to go with a similar design for each card and it made the process a breeze! I started each card with a cream colored card base. Then, I selected three journaling cards from Crate's Open Road line. Finally, I picked out die cuts from Fancy Pants and stickers from Pink Paislee and arranged them onto the journaling cards. The large Heidi Swapp words were the perfect finishing touch. Here's how they turned out: I really love how they turned out! Thanks so much for stopping…

    Last summer we did a TON of traveling. This year, we are staying closer to home, but are still going to be doing lots of fun things. My Project Life album documents a lot of the details, but I wanted to make a mini that housed a collection of photos showing the different things we have done this summer. Using the premade Open Road accordian album from Crate was just right. Here is what I have so far:It's not secret that I love all things chipboard! There were so many fun elements to choose for my front cover. I also love tags and doilies so I added them on for the background.Visiting the…

    Summer is going strong and I'm loving the free time my summer vacation brings. Being a teacher is a VERY hard job, but my time off in the summer is worth it! Here are the spreads I created this week. Last week, someone asked how many Filofaxes I use at once. The answer is two. One is my personal calendar that I carry with me everywhere. The other stays on my scrapping table and is used to plan my DT assignments, keep track of what I do each day so I can document it in my PL, holds PL sketches, lists photos I want to use, etc. In other words, it's my scrapbooking and Project Life manager.

     July's Gossamer blue kits were a lot of fun to work with this month. The primary colors are perfect for summer spreads, 4th of July pictures, pool pictures, etc. I, however, am still trying to catch up. I'm still finishing my spreads from this past spring. (My goal for the summer is to catch up...) Anyway, here are the pages that I made using the kits.I love this 'Here I Stand' card. Isn't the font fun?

    Picking hikes from the Best Hikes With Kids book is working out marvelously so far! I had heard of Lodge Lake before, but it always seemed like too short of a hike for us to drive all the way to Snoqualmie Pass. Wrong! It really is the perfect trail for anyone who is with child, is a child, is feeling gimpy or creaky-kneed, or is just short on time like we were that day, wanting to get back to town in time for the 4th of July festivities. Hiking up the ski hill on the Pacific Crest Trail gave us excellent wilderness-type views for next to no effort, and soon enough we found ourselves at a…
  • Diabeetus

    9 Jul 2014 | 12:39 pm
    It’s interesting (lame, but interesting) that two diseases that lurk in my family history have reared their ugly heads during pregnancy – first hypothyroidism, and now, diabetes. Luckily, both should disappear after I give birth. Gestational diabetes behaves similarly to Type 2, but isn’t related to your diet or activity level prior to diagnosis. Hormones coming from the placenta make you insulin resistant (to make sure the fetus gets enough glucose to grow), and problems arise if your pancreas is not able to keep up with your body’s increasing demands for insulin.

    Two weeks ago, I turned 32. I never actually remember how old I am anymore, because senility (I usually just ask JK how old he is, then subtract a year), but birthdays should be celebrated nonetheless – and my birthdays are best celebrated in the Teanaway. My birthday weekend officially began late Thursday night when JK finally felt (and saw!) the baby kicking for the first time! Huzzah! Then I had time to watch the first episode of the new season of Orange is the New Black before we left on Friday afternoon, which meant I had Pulaski at Night stuck in my head all weekend, setting the…

    In my last post, I was all excited about feeling great after a longer hike. I must have jinxed myself. The following weekend, JK and I hiked Teanaway Ridge in search of shrooms and blooms – we were too early for both, but what I did find was that walking hurt. A lot. In the following days, so did little movements like getting up from the couch and turning over in bed. I tried to rest and not do any exercise for most of a week, but, as always, that led to lower back pain and severe down-in-the-dumpsiness. My yoga teacher told me to make sure I keep my hips level and legs together…

    …of course, “farther” is relative and I wouldn’t normally call ten miles a very long hike, but in the context of pregnancy (and not having done anything near that length since my frozen chanterelle traverse on Tiger Mountain last fall) my pre-hike anxiety brain turned those ten miles to Goat Lake and back into an epic undertaking, even with the modest elevation gain. Turns out it wasn’t epic at all. In fact, it felt wonderful – the best I’ve felt on a hike this whole pregnancy – and I honestly didn’t want it to end. The grade was perfect…

It's a great central location on the coast, just 8 miles from Ruby Beach. This lodge is pretty isolated so i wasn't sure about the restaurant on the premise. i was pleasantly surprised not only by the flavor but by the food. It was imaginative and harvested from local organic farms. We ordered this amazing spinach salad every day we were there and the fresh berries were so tasty. i wish i had one right now.   We…

    These white, bouncy balloons were in our home for weeks and weeks. I first bought them for Myles birthday in April and they floated around until late May. I loved it. Makes me want to just always have some around. When my kids grow up they’ll think… remember how crazy mom was and she always had giant balloons…? But I got lots of use out of them. See here and here. This year out of any month so far, May was a complete blur. Birthdays, baptism and our trip to Barcelona. Something else exciting to add to the list was being featured as the Ruchette of the month at one of my…

Ya know… priorities. I blame my bad decision making on my lack of sleep. ; ) Then while Collin made breakfast I turned Myles’s room into a temporary baby girl’s nursery. Lola approved.

My dad even had a quote about fear hanging in his office that I’ve recited in my mind at certain times when I’ve found myself fearful. That’s why I didn’t just throw anything on their wall. Everything hung has a memory, meaning and a story. Except the teal painted horse head/hook and the disco ball… those are just plain awesome.

    Last week we watched Mr. Peabody & Sherman for the first time. It’s a darling movie for kids. I love the message. In the movie you’ll hear a song by John Lennon called ‘Beautiful Boy.’ I adore this song and somehow I’d never heard it before. My dad was a huge Beatles fan, especially Paul McCartney and John Lennon. I mean,  he made sure I knew what good music was. So it surprised me that I’d never heard Beautiful Boy before. One night, Quincey asked if I’d sing it to her while she fell asleep. Then when everyone was asleep I wanted to see if there…

I put together this layout for ScraPerfect and wanted to share a quick way to add extra photos to your layouts.  I used a large tag folded in half that can be flipped open to reveal two more photos - photos that I wanted to include, but just didn't work well with my main photo.

    When I was browsing through Michaels a couple of weeks ago I picked up one of their 12"x12" buralp canvases.  I really liked the deep gallery wrap of the canvas and it's clean lines.  I debated whether to gesso it or use it for a collage, until I reallized it would be the perfect size for the space next to my computer - where I really needed a small bulletin board to help me keep organized.  I also had a bunch of scrap pieces of cork lying around, which was a great way to use what I had.  This .5" thick cork came in a pack of four (or six?) pieces.  I'd used…

This class comes at a great time and is giving me permission to get out my box of clippings and glue. I think Randel's classes are some of the best online classes I've taken. Hands down.  And it's wonderful to see many of the same people back again in the group. Here's a couple collages I put together for the first week. These are…

    Hi there, happy Monday to you all! I love looking through internet galleries filled with inspiring ideas and trends. I've noticed a lot of beautiful pages using sunbursts or rays. I'm sure there is a proper name for the design, but that was the best I could come up with on the spot. Today I used some of the beautiful patterned papers from the newest Glitz Design collections to create a soft sunburst effect.I'm sure there are a variety of ways to create "rays", the technique I use involves my trusty magnetic mat, ruler and a craft knife. After cutting each ray, I placed it on the…

It's a simple snapshot of our daily life. The photo reminded me of a quote from one of my favorite authors. I decided to use the quote as my jumping off point.In Photoshop, I layered the text of the quote over the photo in a light brown. To create the background I scattered a few pieces of punched heart confetti on the cardstock, then sprayed pink mist. After the mist was dry I removed the hearts. The cheery…

I knew I wanted to use a large, show-stopping hand painted title I’d seen on Pinterest by Kal Barteski. Her distinctive hand painted quotes have been trending in the art world for some time now.  Being dominant and larger than my usual title

My scrapping budget is tiny....so paying almost R100 for a few enamel dots just doesn't sit right with me :) I thought, best I get off my lazy, scrapbooking butt & put some of my years of scrapping experience to good use & try & make my own DIY

    Our whirlwind week+ adventure came to a close last weekend. I took a lot of photos. A lot. And I’m so glad I did. I’m going to break up the adventure into three posts because there were really three separate parts with a cast of characters that come in and out. Our adventure started out with a 4-day camping adventure with my brother’s family and a bunch of their friends. This is the same group we’ve been going with for three of the last four years and it’s a treasured tradition. You can see photos from past years here (2011) and here (2012) – it’s…

    I think it has taken me nearly three weeks to finish this spread, working just a few minutes at a time, but it’s complete now! Week four in Wonder Boy’s baby album is made almost entirely from supplies in my American Crafts collection. I added some Studio Calico wood veneer hearts and that Amy Tangerine stamp I’m using throughout the album. I guess my two colours this week are aqua and orange, though I didn’t specifically set out to do that from the first step like I had in the earlier weeks. It’s not a combination I think I would pick often, but I like it here,…

    I’ve been playing around with my Thickers and my watercolors as of late and I want to share my new favorite technique with you all today. I absolutely love combining watercolors with my Project Life and I’ve found a way to make filler and journal cards using Thickers as masks with my paints. The concept is simple. Place your Thickers firmly on white cardstock and paint around them with your watercolors. The possibilities are truly endless. For this you shall need, watercolor paper cut to PL sizes (I love mixed media paper for this), watercolors and a palette, brushes, Thickers (an…

  • Another week in the Project Life Baby Book [13]

    Shimelle Laine

    Keeping with that idea of choosing two colours per week for Wonder Boy’s album, week three is blue and yellow. I started with the Dreamy collection from WRMK, which I think may be exclusive to Target. I picked it up there when I was at CHA and searching online, I don’t seem to see it in stock at any specialist scrapbook stores. It caught my eye because the colours weren’t particularly girly, but it wasn’t the standard baby blue either. Not that it’s baby themed in anyway, but it just seemed like a versatile set with a different colour scheme to my usual. I knew…

    The situation was incredibly surreal. Wonder Boy was sound asleep in bed, which was surreal enough, and I was staring at a desk full of papers, embellishments, and tools with my own name on them. Exactly where does one start in this scenario? I figured I had to just start cutting paper or I might stand there paralysed by fear, and I know that is never a wise decision in those short windows of time in which a baby sleeps contently! And so, I’ve done it: one completed scrapbook page to get me started using my own supplies! Nearly everything here is from my collection, with the exception…

    Studying scrapbook pages by others is a great way to get scrapbooking ideas for growing your own style. In this “study” look at how a scrapbooker has used product and design principles and how she’s handled the 5 parts of a scrapbook page (canvas, photos, title, journaling, embellishments). Our creative team studied pages by Kim Watson and made their own pages incorporating aspects of those pages. This is not a LIFT of one page.
