    Hello, Friends! If you’ve been here before, you probably know, I’m a huge fan of Target. Not only do I love the clothes and the home decor, I also love the boxed cards. Being a card maker, I always look at them and ooh and aaah, but I almost never buy them because, it kind of feels like cheating. Crazy, right? Well we were there the other day and my husband needed a bunch of Thank You cards and I thought, this will be the perfect excuse to buy some boxed cards, guilt free, woo hoo! So I ask casually, you  know since you need all those thank you cards, do you just want to buy some…

    The positives of Facebook and Twitter - and their potential pitfalls - are well-recognised by politicians and the sites are abuzz with candidates seeking to connect with voters. But what about the likes of Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr or Vine - how are they being used, and can they be effective? It's likely that they are scrolling through their newsfeed on Facebook or Twitter, of course, but they could also be applying the perfect filter to their Instagram photos, creating a witty six-second Vine or sharing a beautiful picture they discovered on Pinterest.

    Hello Friends! When I saw these girl stamps from Angie Blom, I was super excited to pick some up. They remind me of the good ol’ days of Fashion Plates. Of course, I love the confidence from this guitar playing girl. I played a bit with some green hair, I mean why not, right? some dimension and those resin stars that have been waiting to accent something for oh so long. happy. not super fancy but just enough to spread some joy. There will be many more of these girls on cards, I colored a whole bunch that my mom says look like copic selfies. Thanks for stopping by! Love Love and Blog you…

    Hello Friends! I finally had a chance to make some cards the other day :) I got this stamp set from a friend and could not wait to paint/color up this telephone. :) I really love to color with copics and watercolors, it is so relaxing. It reminds me of the old days with coloring books and crayons. I also realized how much I LOVE working in digital media because my color choices and opacity control is infinite. But it was still fun to play. This card is a somewhat of a hodge podge because I started layering and then realized that my issues with cream patterns would not go on a white card base.

    Hello Friends, welcome to February! I’m excited that I finally had a chance to make a card the other day! When I saw this die (Dienamics Fluttering Hearts Cover Ups) from My Favorite Things I immediately thought of dimensional rainbow hearts… When my die arrived, I hit that die cut machine and cut one of each color. I visualized stitching through all layers of color but realized it would be too thick for my sewing machine. I sewed the top two layers together and glue dotted the rest together. and in retrospect, I really could have just stitched the white layer. The sentiment is…

    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…

    18 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    This week’s inspiration comes from the design blog of Fast Company called Fast Co.Design. What’s not to love? Usually when using an inspiration piece I will choose just one bit of it to use, but in this case I loved everything! And I had the perfect hexagon stickers too. I loved the idea of the guy seeing everything, and it made me think of photography, so I grabbed this old photo of some cameras. I gotta tell you, I strongly resisted cutting my photo into a circle. I had major flashbacks of all the shapes we were cutting photos into 10 years ago. Shudder. But I’m so glad I…

Once you’ve created your artwork, you might like to have it in digital format so you can use over and over again. You’ll need to be familiar with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, but the results are well worth it! (If you don’t have these programs, you can sign up for 30-day free trials at Adobe.)

Paper flowers just speak Spring to me, plus they work really well for Mother’s Day decor. And of course who can say no to a flower embellishment on a scrapbook page or a greeting card? In this tutorial Nash shares how to make the flowers and then construct what she calls a flower curtain. The flowers and leaves are made using origami techniques. She then dressed them up a bit and added shading with watercolors.

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…

    I’ve gone on quite a few vacations and hikes that never made it onto the blog. Since our biggest adventures are happening at home these days, I’ve decided to highlight some of those old trips for Throwback Thursday. First up, one of my favorite areas of St. John, USVI – Salt Pond Bay. We first read about Salt Pond in St. John Off the Beaten Track by Gerald Singer – the guidebook for St. John – and it quickly became one of our most cherished snorkeling spots. Places like Waterlemon Cay might have more diverse snorkeling, but Salt Pond has a much better beach on…

    When we took Nora to Cougar Mountain to hike the Shy Bear Loop back in February, I really started feeling the urge to run. That loop is one of my favorite lowland routes to run, and as much as I enjoy walking it, I really, really wanted to just gun it along those rolling hills without a care in the world, fueled on by a manic endorphin rush…and then I immediately felt guilty for longing for something that didn’t involve Nora, like I was cheating on her or something. I realize how ridiculous that sounds, especially since I spend all day every day with Nora and can probably count on…

I feel like I do have stories to tell and adventures to share, and if I write about them on my blog, people can choose whether to read about them or not, and I won’t have to endure having any sort of attention drawn to me (the horror!). It’s been hard to get back into blogging after Nora was born, but having an outlet like this is important to me. So, in order to give my blogging mojo a boost, I decided a redesign was in order! I haven’t updated the…

    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…

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…

If you haven’t heard of them– they fizz in the water which is fun and the kids love it. It also softens the water to make your skin feel so nice after. Well, my first attempt at making my own bath bombs was a literal BOMB. It must’ve been because I didn’t have a good mold and was using easter eggs shells to make easter egg bath bombs. Sounds fun, right? Nope, Pinterest-fails are so frustrating. The…

The fun part is that the base of the album is made from envelopes from my Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy collection. In each envelope I included pics, notes, tickets, memorabilia from our staycation. You know I love the experience of looking through mini albums. Seeing if you can find hidden treasure, secret notes and details. We couldn’t go anywhere far from home during spring break because Avery had practices for a play she will perform at the end of the month. Believe me, I am counting…

    I’m pretty sure there’s nothing cuter than the profile of a baby’s face. I mean, what’s not to love about chubby cheeks and button noses? To document my daughter at this stage in her life, I decided to create a my own silhouette of her profile to hang on her wall. Here’s how I did it: In order to get a good shot of my six month old’s profile, I put her in a high chair against a plain wall with plenty of light and distracted her with some toys. Using the camera on my iPhone, I snapped as many shots as I could get. Once I had a photo I really liked, I opened…

    It's been quiet on the blog, due to this renovation.  The dust & noise have made it near impossible for me to get anything done. So, I'm making up for it with an extra-long post on our progress. While week one was mainly demo, week two had workers all over the house - upstairs and downstairs - doing plumbing, electrical, and HVAC.  The HVAC guys were here for almost a week, replacing the ductwork in literally half the house. By the end of week two, we were ready for inspection for all the rough-ins and waiting on the new kitchen windows to show up.   The old door to the…

We decided to tackle the kitchen, stairs and HVAC work first.  All the interior kitchen/living room/dining room walls are gone and we're going open concept. Mostly, as we'll still have a floor to ceiling space that will hold the fridge and pantry cabinets. This is what we're starting with - And this is where we're going, for the kitchen anyway.  We're moving the kitchen to the front and…

Along with tons of dust -  hence the lack of posting on this blog. Anyhoo - on to the interesting stuff... We got to the convention about 3:30 - too late to catch any of the Saturday panels but just in time to see David Tennant escorted to the photo area. He smiled and waved to us.

    Well, Girl Scout cookies to be exact. This past weekend the kids and I went to Wizard World in Raleigh, NC. I didn't know it at the time, but it's the first convention in the states that David Tennant's been at since he did Comic Con in 2009, back when he was the Doctor.  Since my family has started watching the show a few years back, we've converted oh, about either other families, half our Girl Scout troop and Rachel's working on her 5th grade class.   My co-leader and her daughter are huge fans as well, and stayed in town selflessly to work our cookies booths. …

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 can't tell you guys how good it feels to be home. I'm home for awhile with no plans to go anywhere for a least a month. I love to travel, but man it feels good to settle in here again. Here are a few things happening around here recently:  1. Type starts today. You still have some time to join this 12-week workshop that's focused on the ways we incorporate type into our memory keeping projects. One theme per week keeps it simple and focused and fun. I'd love to have you join the community. Full details here. For me it's going to be all type all the time…

    This year, in honor of my 2015 One Little Word® "give," I'm sharing a hand-drawn quote each Sunday here on my blog.This quote from Ansel Adams seemed fitting this week as the prompt we are working on in One Little Word® is photo-related and my newest Story theme centers on photography (Click). Just a heads up that we will be closing the 2015 One Little Word® classroom to any new students as of April 30th.

    Yesterday I wrapped up three full days of teaching workshops at the Version Scrap event in Paris, France.  It's been a whirlwind trip to one of my favorite cities. Katie and I arrived last Tuesday morning and did a bit of sight-seeing, visiting some of our favorite places during the first few days as we acclimated to the 9 hour time difference. Mostly it was walking around because just doing that in Paris is so awesome. The event began on Friday and between then and Sunday I taught 8, 2.5 hour long workshops to some of the most wonderful people on…

    I don't usually have a fix style when it comes to Pocket Style Scrapbooking. Sometimes I create these pocket sized cards/photos in 12" format, sometimes in SN@P format. Just whatever that month or occasion I'm scrapping appeals to me. Really, it doesn't bother me much whether it's chronologically documented or not =) This month, I decided to play around using Studio Calico's Handbook. I love the size.Slightly larger than SN@P but smaller than my usual 12" layout size. Lovely.If you've not seen, Webster's Pages has came up with several new lines (on top of their fabulously designed…

    Happy Friday my Minty Friends! It’s my most favourite day of the week – brand new Minty goodies have arrived and I’m super stoked to share this week’s release. Does it look a tad familiar? This week’s kit is a refresh-mint of a Minty CLASSIC….Rebel One. Anyone remember that one? It’s one of my all time faves but it is sooooooo old (and retired) that it’s pretty much an entirely new kit aside from 2 papers and the colour scheme. But I just loved the colours and the theme so I went to work giving it a good Minty facelift….or rather kit-lift I should say. I feel like…

I borrowed the color scheme and general theme but not to worry it’s a brand new kit aside from a paper or two. I gave myself a ‘NO FLOWER’ challenge because it’s time to get a little ‘manly’ all up in this joint – of course I did add some ‘girl’ alternatives because hey, not all girls LOVE pink right? If you have tween/teens you’re going to love this one. And to help you get scrapping in style – more fun…

  • A pumpkin-free Halloween in my scrapbook [10]

    Shimelle Laine
    20 Apr 2015 | 9:09 am
    Apparently there is an unwritten rule that babies in our neighbourhood are to be dressed as either a pumpkin or a witch on their first Halloween. I had no idea of the existence of this rule and neglected to dress Wonder Boy as either of those things. Instead, I put him in a red knitted hat and stitched a school uniform shirt down from junior school age to his size, and made him an honorary member of Team Zissou, and knowing that it was a pretty subtle costume, dressed myself to match so that perhaps in some universe there would be a chance that we would appear to have dressed as something,…

    It is suddenly and beautifully spring here, complete with days where one can go outside for an extended amount of time without an actual coat! Take that, Winter! There are pink trees and baby ducks and ample opportunities for vitamin D. It’s exciting stuff. So I’m scrapbooking autumn pictures of people bundled in coats and hats and blankets. Of course. Maybe all this spring outside my window is what made the green leaves feel completely appropriate with the autumnal theme. I can even make a leap to think I might have been inspired to use the black and white background paper with…

There’s also a little bit of the surreal for me in that week of posts, as we filmed quite a few videos with the new collection in January just after CHA, and it’s time to share them now!

    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…

When Geoff and I moved to Chicago, IL in 1990 (so that Geoff could attend the Loyola Stritch School of Medicine we had been married just barely 6 months. We moved into an apartment in Forest Park and I was very eager to go to church and hopefully meet some friends. On the very first Sunday attending the Westchester ward (congregation) I saw a young father that looked familiar to me. Either that day or very soon after, we met Roland Nelson and his wife, Julie. Turns out Roland had lived in an apartment building very near one that I lived…

    I love this Easter holiday. I love going to church and singing (as loud as my kids will allow) the hymn, Christ The Lord is Risen Today (chorus: Hallelujah!) I love this video that reminds us that because of Christ Jesus we will be resurrected and we have the opportunity to repent, over and over and over again. I can continue to try to be like the Savior and that thought fills me with absolute JOY. My favorite quote from the LDS General Conference today?A saint is a sinner who keeps on trying. Hallelujah, that I can keep on trying. Praise the Lord.

As I do this, I'm thinking a lot about the kind of content I want to either bring back or repurpose in some way.

    Today I’m sharing one of my first “multi-format” spreads in my 2015 album. One of the things I’ve found somewhat challenging with my use of various sizes and configurations of pockets is that the back side of a pocket page can sometimes be a roadblock for me. I’ll have a use for the front side, but since I’m not doing a weekly or monthly format there isn’t a natural flow to the other side. One of the solutions I decided to try was to use those blank pockets as a supplement to a full layout on the facing page. I’ve never really done two page layouts in the past because I…

    If there is one thing I have learnt about myself in the two years I have been scrapbooking, it’s that I’m a white cardstock kinda girl. First thing I do when I walk into my studio is pull a piece off the shelf and lay it out on my desk. It’s a clean, defined slate to start with. The bonus to this method of scrapbooking is that it lends itself to hybrid creations. I knew I wanted to do a diamond-themed layout using the Better Together collection, so it was just a matter of putting together my print sheets. On the first, I laid out all the embellishments that I thought would…

First up, projects using the Dwell digital kit and Dwell journaling cards. I always love to see journaling cards used on traditional layouts, and I love how Alexis uses this card as she would any other piece of word art on her page. There are so many different ways to draw a person’s eye across the page, but I think the “delicate scatter” is one of my favorites because it brings such a sense of motion.

The beginning of a new month means that it’s BYOC time at The Lilypad – and I’ve updated the shop with three new products to add to your memory keeping toolbox. The Postscript papers, elements and journaling cards feature an idea that…

  • Gelatos: o que são e como usar

    Renata Pacheco Tavares

    Uma nova febre me pegou: os livros de colorir! Como fiquei muito tempo afastada das artes, só olhando para aquela estante enorme de materiais, ao ver os desenhos lindos desfilando na minha timeline comprei o Floresta Encantada! Comprei o importado, pois achei as folhas mais grossas – e é claro que eu vou usar tintas nele!!! O fato de poder pintar só um pouquinho por dia (ao contrário dos projetos de scrapbooking, que eu levava mais de uma hora só pra escolher os materiais), foi o que mais me animou. E comecei a participar também de grupos no Facebook, para trocar ideias e me inspirar.

    As diversas flores que vemos pelos jardins de Paris são inspiradoras. E me levaram a fazer este layout em página dupla, com o uso de stencil e pasta de modelar. Vejam só o resultado: Flores dos jardins de Paris   Flores dos jardins de Paris   Flores dos jardins de Paris   Vejam o efeito do brilho das tintas Shimmerz sobre a pasta de modelar: Flores dos jardins de Paris   E reparem que usei também a pasta de modelar sobre as fotos, o que dá um resultado super interessante.

  • As pontes de Paris

    Meu álbum sobre Paris já chegou a mais de 40 páginas. E apesar de eu praticamente não pegar nos materiais de scrapbooking há mais de um ano, ainda tenho muitos layouts para mostrar aqui. Uma das coisas que mais chama a atenção em Paris são suas pontes. Ao todo, são 37 pontes, em estilos diferentes, e uma mais bonita que a outra. Fiz um layout duplo para registrar as pontes por onde passei, utilizando um sketch da Nic Howard. O resultado foi esse aqui: Pontes de Paris   Pontes de Paris   Pontes de Paris     Pontes de Paris   Pontes de Paris Materiais:…
  • ATC Fly – borboletas e reciclagem

    Faz tempo que eu não publico um ATC por aqui. Este foi feito para um desafio da revista SNR, que tinha como tema a palavra Fly e como conceito o uso de materiais reciclados. Eu usei pedaços de tecido e colei uma borboleta, tema recorrente em meus trabalhos. O resultado foi esse: ATC Fly A base do papel foi pintada com tinta spray, utilizando uma renda como máscara. Usei também transparências, tecido e Stickles, da Ranger, um material que adoro. Vejam os detalhes mais de perto: ATC Fly ATC Fly Materiais: cardstock Filiart Renaud; transparências Hambly e Sultane; Glimmer Mist, renda usada…

    Hoje trago um post rápido com mais uma página do meu caderno de aquarelas. A novidade é que, nesta, usei gesso e Glossy Accents, da Ranger, para tornar algumas áreas do papel resistentes à tinta, dando um efeito de textura bem interessante. Vejam o que acham: Materiais: caderno Moleskine, aquarela Koi, gesso, Glossy Accents Ranger, caneta branca Uniball Signo Faz tanto tempo que fiz essa pintura, que não sei se conseguiria novamente.

  • Bo Bunny Sweet Life Layout

    17 Apr 2015 | 12:30 am
         Drea here with another layout using Bo Bunny's Sweet Life I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella! I scrapped this photo of the flowers my sister sent me for my birthday, fussy cutting the flowers and mirror.     I used a border punch around my floral paper, and painted the edges white, before adhering it to red cardstock. Then I layered and punched the yellow and pink papers that I got from the Ephemera. I inked the edges of the pink paper with the new Distress Ink (Abandoned Coral), and used gold embossing powder on the edges of the yellow paper. I gave the…

  • Bo Bunny Sweet Life Title Tag Technique

    14 Apr 2015 | 12:30 am
         The new Bo Bunny Sweet Life I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella is so beautiful, full of butterflies and blossoms, and touches of glitter! I love how it looks with this old photo of my dad with some of his siblings!     I started this page by masking the top right corner with some gesso and the new Tim Holtz Lace Stencil. For some sparkle, I added some glitter to the gesso as soon as I lifted my stencil. Make sure to wash your stencil right away too!     The new Distress Ink (Abandoned Coral), which I used on some of my paper edges, really…

         I was so excited to use Bo Bunny's new Glitter Paste for the first time, with this card that I made using Bo Bunny's Sweet Life I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella! The colors and inspiration all came from this beautiful, chipboard, butterfly, which is probably my favorite piece from the whole bundle!Supplies from Bundle:                                      Other Supplies:* 12 X 12 Collection Pack                     …
