Project Life 2013 - DONE.


Pretty excited that I have completed all the pages for my weekly digital Project Life album. We had two extra days of vacation thanks to the frigid temps this week, so I spent lots of time snuggled up on the couch with my laptop.

I'll be printing the last half of 2013 in a 12x12" book from Blurb, to go with my first half of 2013, and my two 2012 albums. Now to continue on in the new year!

If you'd like to see all my pages from this year, you can check out my Flickr set.

Project Life 2014!


I'm excited to embark on another year of documenting our family's adventures and everyday life with my digital Project Life pages. Here is my title page for 2014, using the "Start Here" kit by Splendid Fiins (20% off this weekend). I still have about 6 weeks of 2013 to finish up - I got distracted by working on a paper pocket scrapping project for December Daily. Hopefully I'll be able to share both of those here soon. Happy New Year!

Craft and Fancy 2013





I'm excited to be part of the 6th annual Craft and Fancy sale at Home Ec Workshop. It is tomorrow from 10 am - 5 pm, featuring lots of lovely handmade gifts. I'm packing up fairy garden kits, tooth fairy pillows, and play tea bag sets for my table. If you're local to Iowa City, I hope you will come say hello!

Project Life week 47



Well, I left a few recent weeks behind (I'll go back and catch up soon). But I did finish the pages I missed at the end of 2012 and ordered the 12x12 book from Blurb. It is SO fun to look back at the spreads in a real book format. Looking forward to ordering part two of 2013 at the end of the year.


Splendid Fiins has a new December paper and card kit on sale this weekend. Super cute journaling cards and patterns, as always. Go check it out!

Project Life week 42

I've fallen a bit behind on my Project Life, but if I do 2-3 spreads/week, I'll be good to go. I wanted to share the pages I've just finished, featuring some great designs by Splendid Fiins.


When I fall behind, I try to keep things very simple, and think of the pages as more of a photo album than a scrapbook page. Nisa's designs make it easy to pop in photos and fun patterns and details. This weekend you can get her new 3x4 2014 calendars on sale. I've enjoyed including them each week in this year's album, and I'm planning to use them again next year.


The Lilypad has released a huge collection of holiday products called Design Your December. I picked up Splendid Fiin's releases, and also the Paislee Press journal cards and cut files. I've got my eye on this confetti, and Merry + Bright bling washi tape too!

I loved using the 4x6 Remember December templates to put together a PL spread from last December (I only have 3 incomplete weeks to finish, then 2012 is done!)

Get Inspired crop pages


I had a great time on Saturday scrapbooking at the Get Inspired crop in Des Moines. It was an opportunity for me to dig into my Studio Calico kits and I got lots of Halloween photos from this year and last year scrapped. Here are a few of my favorite pages from the day. Thanks for stopping by!

Project Life week 42


Here are my pages for this week, using Splendid Fiin's new November kit. Great color combos, as always!



But that's not all I made this week, I also carved a Yoda jack-o-lantern! :)
