2015 Islamorada Vacation Album!

I guess I am crafting my way through the pandemic…that and walking the dog, cooking and puttering around the house is kind of keeping me sane. That and the occasional zoom cocktail hour with girlfriends!

Last week, I finished a project that was not even on my radar to work on-at all ! I am taking Stacy Julian’s 20in20 class (which is a memory keeping class to complete [there is my word again] 20 projects in 2020) and she was hosting FB Live class on completing an album in two evening sessions using her “short story” method of organizing, cropping and embellishing pages. Honestly, I wasn’t even going to join until about 30 minutes before the first session was to start…I was thinking about what I could work on that already had photos printed (you needed around 35-50) and an album, page protectors and white cardstock… plus your patterned paper and a very limited range of embellishments.

Because I had just finished inventorying my unfinished project bins AND my empty albums, I realized that I had photos and memorabilia printed from our 2015 April trip to Islamorada AND I had an album, protectors and paper already cut PLUS a super gorgeous kit from October Afternoon (now sadly out of business) that I had been hoarding saving for a good cause… so I grabbed all my stuff, cleared off the table and dove in.

Over the course of two 2-hour Live casts plus some extra time-because I had more photos to do, I finished the album !! I will say I had my doubts but it worked out and I’m super happy with the results! Here’s my amateur video tour of the album. One huge check off the unfinished list!

What unexpected wins have you had lately? Working on anything to share?? Hang in there everyone, stay home and wash your hands! xo

Big Big news here!!

My big big news for the day (actually week and month!)… I will be contributing to the latest class from Stacy Julian and Jennifer Wilson at Big Picture Classes!  I can’t begin to tell you how excited and thrilled I am to be working with these amazing ladies…. and when you get a personal email from Stacy Julian saying she likes your work and wants you to help teach a class…you say yes ma’am!!  (for my non-scrappy savvy friends, Stacy Julian is one of the driving forces in the modern scrapbook world!)
