A few photos into a book…

Well…so this is how  – let’s send Dad a few photos from the girls prom –   turns into… let’s do a whole project…involving other people…just a few days before father’s day!    But it’s done done done.   Is it fancy?  Nope but will he like it?  Yes.  And that is the whole point.

I lucked out and found a Heidi Swapp storyline album on sale at JoAnn’s so I snapped it up as the base for the album.  My sister Tina sent me some photos and I included a few snaps from my sister Nora that I grabbed from a few places online… mixed them all up with my organized and tagged photos from Lightroom (not to be confused with the photos that are still waiting to be organized and tagged) and voila!  A book for Dad.  So excited to get this in the mail to him today but wanted to share a recap for my sisters and friends online.   Here is my not so fabulous completely amateur finished album video!

Digi-layouts:: Face Off 2012




When I got my hands on one of the newest offerings from  Little Feet Digital Designs there was pretty much a lot of squealing and oh my gosh isn’t that so prettyyyyyy!!!!  yup, that’s how we roll here!  So love love love this kit, the elements are g0r-ge-ous and the papers are to die for…When I work with anything metallic (digi supplies, paper supplies, fabrics), I think of it like a neutral.  this kit will compliment just about anything you already have in your digi-scrapping arsenal!

Now, if someone would just invent a home printer that prints foil, we’ll be all set!


Digi-layouts:: Layout Share

In addition to cleaning up my physical studio yesterday (hellooooo clean surfaces, and unearthing my pens!) this morning, I am straightening up my hard drives  (yes, I know, can you feeeeeel the excitement?!)  and thought I’d share some layouts that I’ve been working on for my Creative Team work over at  Little Feet Digital Designs .  Janet has been super busy releasing beautiful kits this summer, here are some of her newest kits, credits below the layouts.  Link to Little Feet Digital Designs Shop HERE

Digi-layouts::Porch Sitters


This morning I did not check the gym schedule in time and at 8:50 realized the usual 9:30 am fitness yoga class … was happening at 8:30!  So what’s a girl to to but finish the layout she’s working on (I’ll stretch later…)



I’m working my way through classes at Big Picture Classes this summer.  One of the latest ones I took was about using sketches to speed up your scrapbooking.  I do use sketches sometimes for inspiration for paper layouts…but I definitely use templates, which are the digital equivalent of sketches, when I am scrapbooking digitally.   The task I set myself this morning was… use a template #1 rotated from the Sketch Solutions class…use one kit from July’s Digi Game and make the whole thing in under an hour…without extra fussing!!!

Done !!
