2015 Scrapbooking/Photographer plans? Anybody?

A post…. hey a post!   No pictures this time though (is that legal)?  Sometimes I think the pictures keep me from posting – even though I love taking pictures – it just adds enough “extra” time that I end up not getting a post written.

So here’s today’s thought.  I put this up on facebook on my page wall & in my chat group (hey come like & join both please!)

What are your plans for 2015? Mine is to actually pull out some paper, maybe finish baby albums. For yearly documenting I am just taking pictures at this point…. trying to be intentional about capturing memories, posting to instagram/flickr/facebook with comments so that someday I have that “journaling” to go by.

I have seen a few scrapbookers who were hard core Project Lifers abandon it this year! I think what’s happening to them is they are designers, scrapbookers who liked the simplicity of PL, but ended up just designing very detailed pocket images/pages! That’s more work than they were doing before! Several are shifting to a monthly layout in various forms. I still like the PL concept for those who can stick to the kits…. I have always had a hard time with that & tend to add alot to mine…. thus never finishing!/

Here are a few posts…

LiT Ep5: Make your own stencil (and a Pottery Barn inspired holiday wall art)

Ok yes I know this is a Thursday, not a Tuesday – but I am still calling it Learn it Tuesday because I can!

You may remember, my friend Kristen (dineanddish.net) asked for some Silhouette help recently.   Well we decided to work together more often!  Fun for both of us & I am so very excited & thankful for this opportunity to work with such a good friend doing something we enjoy!

This month we decided to make a holiday wall art project & used this Pottery Barn Peace Sign… ($129!!!!!) for inspiration.  I think ours turned out great & cost FAR LESS to make!

LiT Ep4: Design your own “Print&Cut” jelly jar labels

Ok first – yes it isn’t Tuesday!   Second – hey – a new video!  It’s about time!  The most challenging part?  Finding enough time when a 5week old, a 5year old and a dog are all quiet (oh & when my hubby isn’t home, because then nobody is quiet)!

My friend Kristen (dineanddish.net) asked for some Silhouette help recently.  She was trying to make labels for some homemade grape jelly.   Simple right?  Well…. printing on a label & then cutting it sure is simple on the Cameo – IF you know how to do it!   So I wanted to share how I quickly helped her out.

Here is one of her labels – didn’t it turn out gorgeous?

And here is my how-to video.   We used a regular cut label that is meant to cut 3 different paper to make a layered label and turned it into a print & cut label with custom text & the printed purple border.  She used Silhouette’s Printable Silver Foil paper.

Here is the video – let me know if you need more help or have any questions & definitely check out Kristen’s blog for the jelly details!

Lunch with friends

A week ago I was invited by a local friend & food blogger to her salad party lunch.  Check out her post about it here!  Kristen (dineanddish.net) was a great hostess; Andy & I had so much fun!
