New Layout

One of the things I love about working with Anita Design's kits as a part of the Digital Press Creative Team is how perfect her work is for heritage pages. Since one of my priorities this year is to create more pages about my family history and my own childhood, I am LOVING her kits.

Here is one using her newest kit, Timeless ... this is Minnie Phillips who is my maternal great grandmother. Her son Jack is my mother's father. I love this photo of her with her bird and I thought this kit was perfect for showcasing it ...

Layouts to Share

Two new layouts to share - one of my childhood pages and one of my favorite photos from my trip to Scotland with my Dad and Nina. I'm so happy with both of them! They are also layouts I made for the Month of Challenges over at The Lilypad!

Layout Share: You Are My Sunshine

I made this very simple layout using Valorie Wibben's goodies from the January BYOC at The Lilypad for the site's Month of Challenges. And I love it! This photo of Alex and me was taken tonight when he and I went on a 'date' and took a selfie! This photo really showed me how much Alex resembles me! LOVE it!

New Layout - Courtney's Wedding

I pulled together a quick layout about my cousin's wedding in September and love using the Memory Pocket Monthly subscription and add on's from The Lilypad to make it easy to create while including a lot of photos! I'm so happy with how it turned out! I had lots of good photos so I ended up doing a two page layout which I need to do more often! Hope you enjoy -

New Layout: Hip Hop Recital

Meighan had so much fun last year when she took Hip Hop dance lessons at a local dance studio. One of her friends from school was also in the class! At the end of class, she participated in a huge recital that the dance studio puts on each spring. Her class did a really great dance for the recital, in the cutest outfits.

Although I covered this story to some degree in our Project Life album last year, I wanted to also tell the larger story in our scrapbook with a layout. I love how this page turned out - much more edgy than I usually am on my pages. I used a template from the January 2015 Simple Scrapper Membership Materials as well as a Story Starter from a previous month's materials.

New Layout: New Adventures

Meighan and Alex are taking Strings Class this year and have both chosen the violin as their instrument of choice! They were SO excited about the violin at the start of the year! It's all they could talk about! We went to a local music store and rented them their instruments! I wanted to be sure to capture this memory in our scrapbooks since it was a very exciting part of 4th grade for both of them!

I used a story starter from the January 2015 Simple Scrapper membership materials as well as a template from an earlier month's Simple Scrapper materials. I used a Paislee Press kit that was perfect for the new adventures theme of this page!

New Layout - Family Portrait

I finished up a new layout using a new Anita Designs kit that was PERFECT for this fantastic heritage family photo that I found. This photo is my mom, her brother and my grandmother. I love every single thing about this photograph! I wanted to keep it simple in order to best showcase this portrait!  There is nothing quite as cool as seeing your mom as a little girl! She was (and is) so beautiful!

New Layout: Snowboarding

Here is my newest layout using Valorie Wibbens' BYOC goodies and I'm loving the color scheme for BYOC at The Lilypad this month! So fun and refreshing!

This layout tells the story of Meighan's first experience with snowboarding. She had such a great time and was so proud of how well she did!

Announcement & Two New Layouts

I am so excited to announce that I'm on the Creative Team for The Digital Press which is a fantastic new digital scrapbooking site! I am so excited to be a part of their team and feel honored to have been selected!

Here is the announcement - so much talent on this team! I am wow'd to be a part of it! I am anrobe in digital circles so that is me - the 3rd name on the Core Creative Team list!



And, so I've been scrapping this week with new goodies from The Digital Press and I can't recommend the designs there more highly! The team is fantastic and their digital store is full of amazing products!

The first layout is one of the layouts I've been meaning to create about our making perogies at Christmas last year and the Gilded Grab Bag by Anita Designs and Karla Dudley was PERFECT for what I wanted to create. This grab bag is an amazing deal - it has a full kit, a layered template album, tons of word art and elements to make your perfect page! I am so thrilled with how this one turned out - even better than I'd hoped!


The second layout is one I've had on my list for awhile - an afternoon that Meighan and her best friend, Lilah, spent together at a local bounce place. I wanted to be sure to document this great day (and Meighan's good friend) in our scrapbook! I used a number of things for this layout - Stenciled Vol 1 by Dawn by Design, Soda Pop Paint by Dawn by Design, Stitches from Lanky Alpha by Dawn by Design, Time Spent Together kit by Digital Scrapbook Ingredients & Wishing Well Creations by Laura Passage.


That is it for now but I'll be back soon with more layouts to share!
