    Map images are ubiquitous in scrapbooking now. They are good for so many different kinds of layouts! You can use them on travel pages, vacation mini-albums, greeting cards… even on a layout about your home sweet home. It’s even better when they have a vintage twist, as they are both functional and decorative.

    Hi and Welcome to this month's Gossamer Blue Blog Hop. It's always fun to get more inspiration and that's what we are here to do. Today, I have some fun planner projects to share with you. As you know, I love my planners. The August kits were perfect for filling up my Light Pink Color Crush and keeping me organized in a fun way! I started off by choosing some of my favorite items and filling my front pockets with them. These are the things that I am most likely to need as I plan through the week. I love adding some extra die cuts, too, as decorative items.Next, I made a dashboard for my…

    Can all hikes be like this one? Nora has suddenly started sleeping in in the mornings, which is glorious and luxurious and amazing, so we’ve been getting a late start on our hikes. I would rather get that extra snoozage in the morning and deal with starting our hikes at noon, so it’s all good, but it does mean we have to stick to shorter trails in order to enjoy ourselves and still have time to get back home in time for bed. I don’t mind that either – there are lots of gorgeous short trails in this state. One of those is Tolmie Peak Lookout, which somehow we had never…

    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.

    I truly can’t wrap my head around the fact that Nora turns one next week. This morning, Facebook notified me that on this day last year, JK posted this adorable (if I do say so myself) photo of us on the Powerline Trail, out on a post-dinner glucose-regulating walk. We were so excited about what was to come, but not yet aware of just how amazing it would be (or how soon it would happen). We decided to recreate it, rather hurriedly, before JK went to work today. I’d say it’s way more adorable this year.

    This is my fifth year participating in Washington Trails Association’s Hike-a-Thon! Every August, hikers from all across Washington sign up to grind out the miles and raise money for WTA to protect and maintain our beloved trails and wild areas. I usually set a goal for myself, like hiking 100 miles, but 2014 and 2015 have been a little different. Last year, I waddled around as best I could, hitting the trails right up until I went into labor on the very last day of Hike-a-Thon – I had to keep bracing myself against trees along the trail, wondering why my Braxton-Hicks were…

    JK had his first day back at work today after eight glorious weeks of paternity leave. The house feels sort of empty and weird without him now, but Nora and I fell right back into our old groove and had a really sweet day together. It’s much worse for JK, who has to go out and actually be productive and bring home the facon instead of hanging out with his best girl all day (then again his first day back included a party and an exclusive Macklemore concert, so I don’t feel that bad for him). If Nora wasn’t a daddy’s girl before, she definitely is now. She got to go on…

    Back in June, before our trip to Europe, we decided that we needed a really good mountain hike to see us off. Mount Rainier never disappoints, and the trails around Sunrise had melted out early this year, so off to Fremont Lookout we went. A miracle occurred on the way to the mountain – Nora slept! In the car!(!!) For over an hour! This was an excellent start to our day since it meant that she was awake and in a fantastic mood for the entire hike – and, importantly, awake for her first marmot sighting! We had no close encounters of the furry kind this time, but two sentinel…

    When the tree in our backyard blossoms with peaches it means two things: summer is coming to an end and it’s time to make some peach cobbler. Since I failed at making jam a couple years ago, and crushed my domestic-canning-skill-confidence, I am scared to try again but I need to! Because how delicious is homemade jam on homemade bread toasted and warm on a fall afternoon? Too bad I can’t make bread either. hahahahahaha School started so I lost half my crew at home during the day. I am feeling quite crazy about he whole situation since I want to cry and celebrate at the same time.

So when I stumbled upon this 3D camera- I knew I had to try it out on some of my favorite Dear Lizzy patterns! Begin by cutting out the shape with the Cameo. Once you have all the components cut out on a few different papers, begin assembling and gluing them. To make the camera more true to my style, I swapped out some of the die cut shapes for gold rimmed tags, candy dots, washi tape, and gold glitter paper. How cool is…

You can display it during summer and then when you are ready to take it down pop some ring in it and you will have a book to still display all the memories of summer! When I sat down to work on this project, I, honestly didn’t know what to do. It was the first time since I can’t remember that I was going to make a mini album just for me.

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.

    AMOooooh, today was another I don't want to get out of bed day. My 3:45 alarm got snoozed so much that it was 4:30 before I got to the gym! The only thing that really motivated me was the fact that I'm so close to finishing my book and I only let myself read it at the gym. While I was getting ready, I saw that I still had some teal hair chalk in my hair. Totally made me smile.Mickey was awake when I got home so I got some snuggles in with him...until we were interrupted by Lilly.

I really like being there without anyone else. I'm a bit self conscious at the gym. I do just cardio this morning on my usual elliptical machine.

Well, I changed my mind and I'm in!Last year's album was very picture heavy and not word heavy enough. (Story of my life!) So, I decided to start a blog post every morning and add to it throughout the day. This seems more doable to me than to get it all done in the evening. I got the Blogger app on my phone so even on the days when I'm not home, I can still blog...hopefully!AM3:45 alarm to head to the gym.

    Monday was really all about the photos.  For any of you just joining in, I'm sharing my completed Week In The Life™ album day by day.  As usual, let the ideas I share here be a jumping off point for you and inspiration to create your own album any way you want. This isn't a competition or something that is meant to make anyone feel less than - embrace what you have in front of you right now: your style, your words, your photos. Celebrate them for what they are rather than what you might wish them to be. These are reminders to myself as much as they are to you.

    Now that we've collected some photos and words (or at least the photos) for Week In The Life™ it's time to begin bringing them together into a tangible album. People approach this process in a hundred different ways. Some people like to give a little space and time between documenting the week and putting their album together. Others like to dive right in and finish it up. My general approach is to work on it very soon after completing my week but sometimes, like last year when December Daily® was so close, it just isn't possible.

The current idea I have in my head is to use type directly on my photos before printing in Photoshop in the same manner that I did last year because I really, really liked how that turned out. That said, once I start working on it today I might go an entirely different route.  Please remember as you start…

    You are almost there.  One more day.  As usual, I'm ready to wrap this one up. I love the project and there's still much to do in terms of putting it all together but by this time in the week, I'm ready to not have the little self-reminder to capture more (even though I'm so thankful to myself for making the effort because there are some gems).  I took less photos today (right around 48 with my DSLR which includes doubles and triples where I was trying to get the settings right), as is customary with this project generally as I work my way through the week. Really the main…

  • Inspired by... Scrapbooking with May Flaum [3]

    Shimelle Laine
    24 Aug 2015 | 10:00 pm
    Today I’m delighted to welcome May Flaum to share how she’s been inspired to get scrapbooking with the True Stories collection. May is hilarious and has an above-average appreciation of Zoolander, and this along with her fabulous crafting and teaching skills, make her one of my favourite people. I wish she lived much closer than the zillion miles away of reality. But at least today we can be found here in the same place, in some way or another. I hope you enjoy her video! I was inspired by this layout and really was struck by the simple design for two landscape oriented 4×6…
  • Gluten-Free Coca-Cola Soda Bread - inspired by the Bake Off

    Shimelle Laine
    24 Aug 2015 | 5:00 am
    Let’s just say this week there is no way I could have coped with Paul and Mary’s tough timings in the bake-off tent. I finished my bread in a flash actually, but right around midday on Monday, plenty of panic bells started going off around here and it’s only now on Friday that I can come back and actually post this and some other fun crafty stuff too. Hurrah for a day that seems much better from the outset, may we all cross our fingers that everyone stays well and safe and happy and let’s talk about fun things now! Week three of the bake off focused on bread, with a…
  • Inspired by... scrapbooking with Amy Tan [7]

    Shimelle Laine
    20 Aug 2015 | 2:30 pm
    In this latest round of asking some of my favourite scrapbookers to share their work with you, I tried to put something that was in my mind into their thought process: almost the entire time that I’ve been scrapping less, I’ve been feeling inspired more. Perhaps we just replace one creative thought with another in the same space in our mind, so where I used to make at least a layout a day in one form or another and then found myself trying desperately to make one a week, all those other days there was some small part of my mind that was thinking about making stuff. I would catch a…
  • Gluten-free Peanut Butter & Chocolate Biscotti - inspired by the Bake Off! [7]

    Shimelle Laine
    17 Aug 2015 | 3:58 am
    It’s biscuit week for the second round of the Great British Bake Off, a term that is always destined to confuse all the different varieties of the English language. In the UK, a biscuit is what Americans call a cookie. Except when it is also what Americans call a cracker. Indeed. Suffice to say, it is never something served with gravy. Just to make it less confusing all round, I chose the first challenge from the show for my baking this week – biscotti. It’s Italian so we can all agree! Twice baked and found in coffee shops! Peanut butter and chocolate is a combination I…

    Today I’m uploading videos to YouTube that will be live shortly and while I do that, the lovely Paige is here to share a beautiful project with the True Stories collection! Paige’s work is always so artful and unique, and I hope you enjoy her tutorial as much as I do.

    Relaxed and hand-drawn geometric elements are currently trendy, showing up in fabrics and accessories, We’ve got ideas for getting relaxed geometric looks onto the scrapbook page. Sian Fair says, “When I was about seven, our class watched a TV program we could sing along to–but the main attraction was, every week, spotting the little girl who could have been my twin in the audience.” “I’m not much of an artist and I was thinking about how to make a start on drawing a pattern when I spotted a pre-printed coloring page on my desk. I wanted a subtle…

  • The Creative Life {free printable poster}

    27 Aug 2015 | 12:00 am
    "To live a creative life, we must give up our fear of being wrong." I love this quote so much! I spend so much of my time being afraid of failing. My mother tells the story of me learning to walk: I refused to do it for anyone but she would often see me "practice" in my crib. Once I finally performed for others, I could run. Apparently I have never been too fond of this failing thing. I don't like to fail. I especially don't like to fail if others can see. And yet, if I want my creativity to grow, I must be willing to try and expect to make mistakes. Sometimes life's most beautiful things…
  • On or Off the Page?

    26 Aug 2015 | 2:00 am
    I have noticed that some digital scrapbookers prefer to keep all of their elements entirely on the page. Other scrapbookers scrapbook right to the edge of pages, allowing elements like leaves and flowers to disappear off the edge of the canvas. Personally, I like and use both styles. Staying on the Page On the pages below, all of the elements and papers used in the design are kept on the canvas. The first example is designed around a mat that is slightly smaller than the 12x12 page. On the second example, all of the design is clustered around a central photo collage. On both pages, all of the…

    Hello everyone, I’m so happy to be here sharing a hybrid project with you all. I’ve been a big fan of Peppermint’s work for quite awhile and have several One Little Bird designs in my digital library. When I was asked to create a hybrid project for this month I was super excited. I absolutely loved the Nosh set that Peppermint designed and I’ve always wanted to make a project just about food. Since my husband and I recently took a trip to Portland and I haven’t had a chance to make anything with the photos yet I decided to work with those photos and it ended up working perfectly. I…

So last week, Aimee brilliantly put together a colorful and vibrant Project Life spread using seven One Little Bird collections. This week, I didn’t use as many collections, but I did come in at a close five. I guess this just goes to show how beautifully versatile Peppermint’s designs are such that you can just mix and match collections with complete ease! I really love all the One Little Bird…

    Happy Day!  I'm here to share another layout I did using the Simple Stories So Fancy Line. There are so many great cut a parts and stickers for this line.  It is so hard to decide what to use.  My favorite thing in this line is the self adhesive brads.  I love that I don't have to punch a hole and line something up perfectly, but I still get the same look of a brad.  Win, win in my book.Love this picture of my youngest.  I can't believe that I hadn't scraped it yet. Have a beautiful day! Smiles, Jessica
