    Hello Friends! I have been having a weird time with my scheduling since the boys went back to school this week.  During winter break I could run whenever I got the urge and take pictures at will. Now that they are back in school, I’m struggling to remember when I should do what to get it all done. I find it’s bedtime and I haven’t had a chance to run or take a picture with my big camera. Silly me, thinking I COULD actually get it all done. duh. This first picture is with the 5D and the other three are iPhone 6+ pictures. SO anyway, here’s what has been going on around…

    I’ve been scrapping for over 10 years and I’m still working on getting my scrap room/office just the way I want it. it’s a work in progress! But I’m determined to get to a stable place in 2015. I started out by giving my desk a quick makeover, but there’s much more to be done! So I scoured the web for some more ideas. Here are some good ones I found. The nook above from Debee Campos has lots to see. In a small space she was able to organize lots of supplies! 1. A cubby hole shelf holds her baker’s twine and washi tape 2.

    Hello and Welcome to January's Gossamer Blue blog hop. I'm here with two brand new cards that I created with goodies from the kits.As you know, I adore Crate Paper's products. I was so excited to use the Kiss Kiss line goodies that came with this month's kits. Now that Valentine's Day is soon upon us, I decided that I needed to start creating some cards. I love how these two turned out.I started off with cream colored cardstock and began layering. On this card, I used some chipboard and layered it onto a die cut. I love the gold 'love tag,' so I added that to the top. I placed that gold…

    Hello Friends! I have always loved personalized items. Always. I can remember the crushing defeat of looking through rows of bicycle license plates hoping against all hope that there would be a JOSCIE plate. Maybe it’ll be right here, sigh, no. The defeat of not-so-common-first-names or oddly-spelled names is one I have fought my entire life. I can remember my mom ordering stationery with my name on it when I was younger, it was such a thrill to see my own name on every sheet of paper! This is part of the reason I love creating personalized stamps. The other reason is because I’m…

    Hello Friends! Today was a tough day. Even though we went to sleep at normal bedtime, it sure was difficult to get out of the bed, especially since this morning was “the coldest day of the season!” Thankfully, we all got up, got dressed, had our breakfasts, packed lunches and got to the car and dropped the boys off at school with no trauma. You may already know, I have a weakness for collecting things. Especially things that come in multiple colors. Nail polish, converse, scarves, earrings, necklaces, lipsticks… I could go on and on. I was completely inspired by this prompt.

After our post church lunch at Outback, we stood outside on the porch and snapped away. I also thought I’d take a group family shot near the fireplace while all our Christmas cards are on display! we had to push the coffee table and a chair out of the way, but, whatever it takes to get the shot ;) and finally, since today’s prompt was about a reflection, I took a full length mirror selfie in the hallway.

    If you have certain small embellishments that you use over and over again on scrapbooking pages, you might want to keep them close by on your desk in a small container. Make it beautiful by embellishing a papier mache box with some larger pieces.

Anyway, I knew I wanted to do a page about Buddy and the Get Happy line from Gossamer Blue was the perfect collection to use!I used the Gossamer Blue sketch for December, so this page came together really easily!

    It’s Blue Friday, and Super Blue Friday at that! I used to hate handegg, but when JK started getting into it last season, I felt like I was missing out. When I finally sat down and truly pay attention to a Seahawks game (and have JK explain the rules, because man alive, so complicated!), I realized it’s actually an insanely exciting and interesting game. Way more so than real football (sorry, rest of the world). I lucked out with the timing since the Seahawks ended up going to the Super Bowl last season, and we got to watch them win while sitting at a bar called Skinny Legs in…

I simply kept a Christmas card for myself, wrote down the highlights of the year, and voilà, 2014 summed up on one card. It’s even easier if you’re organized enough to print a summary of the year onto the cards you’re sending out to your family and friends, something I intend to do next year. Now I just need to find a 5×7 album with sleeves that will let you see the back and front of each card, and…

We drove to Issaquah on Sunday and, along with 93% of the Washington population, attempted to find a parking spot along the paraglider landing field. Let’s just say it took a while…which we really should have considered beforehand, since it was a Sunday. And sunny. And 60 degrees. In January. Dude, for reals, it was 60 degrees! In January!! I was massively overdressed in long running tights and a long-sleeved shirt, all black of course. Nora ended up hiking (as…

We’re making so many memories every day now, but there’s no way I’m going to remember much of this period at all unless I print photos and write, write, write. Side note for new parents: shoot lots of video! I had no idea Nora would change so fast in the beginning, and we really don’t have much footage from when she was this brand new,…

She found the cameras in the frame section at Target and painted them gold. She’s a crafty genius. Next, she stamped the bag using a heart from my Dear Lizzy stamp set and pink and gold stamp pads. Then she layered a tag with a Dear Lizzy project life card and adorable flower from Maggie Holmes.

Using this party hat template from Oh Happy Day as my guide, I traced the outline on one of my favorite Daydreamer papers and cut it out. Once the hat was assembled, I made a yarn pom pom for the topper, leaving a 5 inch tail to tape to the inside of the hat. Lizzy put together a pom pom tutorial here. I also wrapped my favorite tinsel yarn just underneath the pompom for an additional flair. With a…

In addtion, the AAP kids participated in NaNoWrMo - with a 5,000 word minimum.  Thomas wrote over 6,000 -- quite an achievement for a boy who doesn't like writing. Rachel…

    Cheering myself on over here. Making it happen by doing a little bit at a time, keeping it out in my office on a table, keeping it pretty simple and by making time for it (as in I think it's important enough to spend a little time on every couple of days so it doesn't feel so overwhelming doing it all at once). It's nothing new. It's words and photos and a bit of stamping and pieces of my life all together in one place. Sometimes I don't have a lot to say about it other than, it is what it is. And I like it. Here's a look at Week Three: It was a birthday week so…

    Last week, Simon turned 13.  THIRTEEN. For real.  This kid.  I've been sharing his stories in this space since he was 2 years old. I've shared stories of challenges and stories of successes because that's what it's all about isn't it?  Celebrating all of it: lessons learned, things overcome and the wonderful joy of being together.  Our own little modern family gathered to celebrate him on his actual birthday at the restaurant of his choice (Twin Dragon for MarFar Chicken) because he is so very loved.  He's not a fan of the signing so…
  • The Things I Brought Home With Me From Alt Summit

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:00 am
    I attended my first Alt Summit event in Salt Lake City, Utah last summer (you can read about my first experience here).  This time I came back as a speaker on a panel about launching a product or shop - because, you know, it's part of what I do here.  This time around Alt was full of introductions and old friends and conversations and hugs and lots of "how's it going for you?" and "what are you working on right now?" and "what's next?"   In addition to my responsibilities as a panelist, I decided to go again this year to…

    Keep it simple. Keep it simple. Keep it simple. When I worked on this spread what I kept trying to keep myself focused on the following questions, "What do I want to remember?" and "What do I care enough about from our week to include in here?"In this format (divided pocket pages) it's usually the photos that lead my stories. That's not always the case with my traditional layouts and I like that differentiation between the two. Loving the one or two sentences right on top of the photos either printed or handwritten. I know that some of my weeks will be more embellished than…

The extremely unwelcome close encounter with the most hated illness which came knocking on our door middle of this year caught us off guard. Threw us off tangent and made us grapple in the dark for footing. All in, thankful for the Almighty who brought us out of it.

    Are you getting the MOST out of your ‘Hello’ Pocket Card Collections? Check this out: This collection of cards come from FOUR different Hello Collections. Yes, FOUR! When I started designing these monthly last year my goal was to make sure you’d get a ton of use out of each one individually but also as a whole. So I quickly went through my stash and pulled some cards from 4 different collections and believe me there were MANY more I could have included, but I just wanted to show you a quick demo of how well they all go together. Don’t be afraid to pull those cards out of their…

    Shimelle Laine
    25 Jan 2015 | 2:58 am
    Somehow I am writing from London again, after the CHA adventure in California and time at the American Crafts office in Utah. No one in this house is on the right time zone and while the laundry is now more clean than not, what needs to be folded and put away is suddenly reaching modern art proportions. Seems as good a time as any to ignore that and show you my little corner of CHA 2015 – the annual trade show for the craft and hobby industry. We show new lines at the show, so most things on the floor won’t be available in stores for a month or so. True Stories ships in April. In…

Over the next week, I’ll be sharing so much about this, from an in-depth look at the products to project ideas and techniques. But today, just a little look to get things started, and a heads up about the chance to win the collection from American Crafts over on Instagram.

    In years past, my husband, kids and I would hurry out the door on Christmas Eve, arms loaded with fancy wrapped packages of all shapes and sizes, for a family gathering and present exchange. 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…

    Scrapbooker Ashley Calder says, “I scrapbook to recall and document moments, the little things that might normally be forgotten over time. Because it’s moments I want to remember, most often a single photo is enough to record that moment.” “Single & Pretty” is the newest class in the Get It Scrapped membership, and it’s a focused study of one-photo scrapbook pages with rich design. Teachers are Ashley Calder, Lisa Dickinson, Kayleigh Wiles, Amy Kingsford, and Sian Fair. Here, the Get It Scrapped team shows you their “single and pretty pages” and…

Choose 5 photos that can be cropped to narrow “portraits.” Crop them all to 3″ wide. Their heights can vary. Plan to mount them staggered as shown. 2. Choose two supporting shots and crop them both to 5″ wide. Their height combined should be less than 7″. 3. Block out a background with a 6″ x 12″ block at far left and a 4″ x 12″ band at far…

    20 Jan 2015 | 2:00 am
    Something we’re calling “flat geometry” is popular now in illustration, home decor, and print patterns. (Check out examples on our Pinterest Board of “Flat Geometry.”) In “flat geometric” works, the designs are rendered with geometric shapes on flat surfaces in a way that conveys depth and dimension. Color, value, and shape all combine to create the illusion of dimension Several of the Get It Scrapped Creative Team members recently took the challenge to create their own “flat geometric” designs in service of scrapbook page storytelling.

    In November, after seeing Traci Reed post about her Creative Live classes, I started poking around the Creative Live website. I hadn't seen it before and I was instantly excited about all the possibilities. With the weather getting colder and the days shorter, I figured it was the perfect time to take a class. Not only would I get to learn something new, but I would finally have something to end the boredom of running on a treadmill. Each morning I would turn on the laptop, start watching, and start running. It was great. The class I took was called Family Photography: Modern Storytelling. It…

Here's what is staying the same for 2015: Using 3x4 and 4x6 spots: There are so many amazing products sized for 3x4 and 4x6 spots that I knew I had to keep using spots in these sizes. Keeping the same journaling font all year: In past years I've used a typewriter font and loved how a consistent font tied the whole set of pages…

    How much will you scrap this year? Carrie Arrick of the Digi Scrap Geek podcast had a thought provoking (and cool!) post where she analyzes the pages she made 2014. Carrie's post inspired me, but I set off in a different direction. Rather than reviewing 2014, I began to plan out my scrapbooking for this year, 2015. Now before you stop reading, I have to say something about planning. You don't need to plan to scrapbook. In fact, too much planning, like too much organizing and shopping can prevent you from even getting started and gaining momentum. I plan my scrapping because I want to, and for…

    In 2014 I received an email from a customer asking whether I had ever considered doing a kit about coffee … or reading … or coffee AND reading, even better! And the truth was that I had spent some time brainstorming both of those topics separately and nothing really took enough shape for me to move forward with either one. But together, they’re two of my favorite things. Because there’s nothing quite like settling into a cozy spot with a cup of coffee and a book you’ve been positively dying to read.

Since I’m completing this album 5 years after it happened, the journaling does not come easy.  For me, I’ve found that searching my email is the best way to find the details from that time period.  So after scrounging up a few memories, I decided to let the prompts from the Currently Journaling Card set and elements of…

    In 2014 I loved using the 6×8 albums and pocket pages and it didn’t take me long to fall into a rhythm with that format, which made each month a little bit easier than the one before. Definitely love those little pages. (Although I will admit that I wish the Becky Higgins binders had label holders on the spine – but I’m fixing that problem with some Martha Stewart Adhesive Bookplates that I have on order.) For 2015 I thought I’d change things up just a little bit because I want to return to sharing some bigger moments in my album this year, but I’m still very smitten with the…
