Project Life 2018 | Week 9

Hello week 9! I have had this layout done for a while now, just never got around to posting it on the ol blog here. Somehow the year has nearly come to an end and this project has a lot of catching up to do! Wish me luck as I try to accomplish that feat in the next 2 months...

Project Life 2018 | Week 8

Hello summer time and a slower pace of life! We survived spring, and the crazy busy schedule that comes with spring. Baseball for all three boys, travel basketball for the oldest, and work 6 days a week. It throws a big wrench in my scrapbooking style. So today I am back to share a few of the project life pages I have been working on of late. Playing catch up to document our life!

I am still documenting our February and its crazy how hard it is to recall this time in our life. As i go through photos and my planner I am reminded of just how much I LOVE THIS PROJECT!!!

Project Life 2018 | Week 7

Hello, week 7 of our Project life album! This week I used new digital goodies from In a Creative Bubble available at The Digital Press Co: Neighborhood-Journaling-Cards and Neighborhood-Stamp-Brushes. This week encompassed Valentines Day and more sports and some much needed time at home thanks to snow days.

I love the color pallet of this kit, and kept things super simple to document our week.

Project Life 2018 | Week 6

Hello Week 6, and the beginning of February...and it is almost the beginning of April :O Somehow the time has flown by and my time on the computer creating has gone caput. Oh ya...thats right, 3 boys in sports will do that! This is not even the busy part of the year and I am falling behind. I love this project so much I don't want to let it slide. So I am using some free time today (hello spring break!) and I am playing catch up using some of the amazing digital kits In A Creative Bubble has for sale now at The Digital Press Co. Make sure to snag these kits fast, they are only available for 2 more days as March is coming to a close quickly!

This week I used The Sweet life journaling cards and elements to put together my page & I am so in love with the results. The colors of this kit are perfect to cheer up our dreary winter photos!

Thanks for taking a peek, see you again soon...i promise!

Project Life 2018 | Week 5

Phew, February was a whirlwind of winter sporting events around here! Basketball, swimming & more basketball!! I finally got a chance to finish up week 5 of our project life album and wrap up January. I am totally loving this project and my workflow with this project...although I sure I had more hours in a day! This week I used the fabulous Hip Hip Hooray | Journaling Cards & Hip Hip Hooray | Elements by TDP Guest designer In A Creative Bubble. I am such a fan girl of In a Creative Bubble, I was beyond excited to see her as a guest designer for March at The Digital Press Co.! The colors of this kit are some of my very favorites and they worked perfectly with this weeks sports photos!

Here are a closer look at my pages:

The photo frames are something coming soon to my shop! I am pumped to use them more each week to document the days each photo was taken!

Make a Page Monday | Week 7

Hello Monday and cheers to making it half way through the long month of February! This month I have been focusing on my OLW Connect and re connecting with things that make me happy in my life. One of those things is my love of yoga. I was seriously obsessed with it, 15 years ago...before I had my boys...and I was young and flexible! Ha! I have been practicing yoga as much a possible this month and I have fallen in love with it all over again. So of course what better way to document than with a scrapbook page...

Make a Page Monday | Week 6

Happy Valentines week! I hope everyone has a week filled with love. To celebrate I am sharing a page I made documenting 7 years with my special valentine. We recently celebrated our 7 year anniversary and I thought it would be fun to go back and pull out a photo from each year of us being together. Big moments, like our engagement (yes we are going to get married...someday!), and buying our house together. And the little everyday moments in between, these are the ones that truly hold a special place in my heart. I am so lucky to have this guy in my life! 

The Digital Press Co. has their Pennysaver promo going on for the month of February! Don't miss out on these awesome digi goodies for only $1!

Project life 2018 | Week 3

We got over 9 inches of snow here yesterday so I took a snow day and stayed home with my boys. It was pretty magical, we stayed in our PJ's, watched youtube together, relaxed a lot & had hot chocolate after shoveling. It was "a perfect day" as Drew called it at 10pm. My perfect day involved some time on the computer doing some digital scrapbooking and working on week 3 of our 2018 Project Life album. For this weeks spread I used Sahlin Studio Pure Happiness kit & Journal Cards, as well as some brushes/word art from Karla Noel.  My weekly title cards are inspired by Sahlin Studio 2018 Calendar Cards.

Thanks for taking a peek! See you on Monday with a new layout for MAPM :D

Make a Page Monday | Week 5

Happy Monday and Hello February! 1 month is already gone this year and in that first month I created 31 scrapbook pages, thanks to MOC6 at The Lilypad! I also created a few more layouts for new releases at The Digital Press. One of those pages is the one I am sharing today. A page with a fun new kit by Dawn by Designs. My one little word this year is Connect. This year I am participating in Ali Edwards One Little Word workshop and making my word "connect" a priority. I have a few pages created for my album, and will share more about that soon! This page is another one I will add to that album and use as inspiration to spend more one on one time with each of my boys to connect with them throughout the year!

Make a Page Monday | Week 4

Happy Monday! We are almost at the end of January and I can't even believe how fast this month has gone by! We suffered through a few weeks of sickness and winter blahs here, but nothing has helped me get through the winter better than bright colors, happy photos and playing with paper (in digital format of course!) For this weeks layout I am sharing another page created for MOC6 at The Lilypad! This was for day 12's throwback photo challenge. These photos of Drew were taken 7 years ago. I'm not entirely sure how that happened...I can remember this day like it was yesterday!

Make a Page Monday | Week 3

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing one of my recent favorite layouts. This page was created for day 19 of MOC6. The challenge was to clip a photo to an alpha or font. I recently picked up the most amazing velum alpha by Just Jaimee and I just knew it would be perfect for this challenge! I used the January 2018 free blog challenge template by Sahlin Studio for my design and her Pause digital kit. Added in some recent photos I took of my boy while playing around with my camera and voila...

Make a Page Monday | Week 2

Welcome to another week of MPM and today I am sharing a multi photo layout that I created for another challenge this month at The Lilypad! I love going through months of photos and pulling them all together. For this page, I went through ALL of Dylans football photos from the fall of 2017. I have yet to do much with them, so this page makes me incredibly happy. A place to showcase some of my very favorite moments I captured throughout the season!

Project Life Album | 2018

Hello 2018 and another year of documenting our lives with Project Life. This year I am taking my album back to where it all started = Digital!! I am using digital kits that I LOVE to put together my pages each week. For my title page I used Memory-Pockets-Monthly-SPARKLE from The Lilypad. I am in love with the bright happy colors and all the cards and elements that came in this kit!

I loved it so much that I used the same kit for week 1:

For week 2 I used Happy at Home Cards & Happy at Home Elements by Sahin Designs:

and with that you can see where I am right now. Ready to document our daily lives and be creative in the process!

Make a Page Monday | Week 1

Hello and welcome to the 2018 edition of Make a page Monday! The place I will be sharing a look at what I am working on each week digitally. This first week is a page I created for day 3 of the MOC6 at The Lilypad.  The challenge was to create a mood board and then use that board to inspire your scrapbook page. Here is a look at the mood board I created from some of my favorite photos from pinterest:

And here is my completed layout. Here in Michigan in the dead of winter scrapbooking some of my favorite vacation photos made for a happy day :D

Hello 2018!

2017 you were a blur! As my boys get older the days just get busier, and I find things like blogging go by the wayside. I still had a productive year scrapbooking and I will continue my love of this hobby and have set some scrappy goals for 2018!

I still like having this home to share my pages and creative endevors so I am giving this a go again :D Sharing pages weekly with my Make a page Monday posts, updating pages with year long and monthly projects as they come together, and sharing more of my little shop! I am determined to make 2018 a more creative one!!  Cheers to new beginnings and resolutions to be the best we can be for 2018!!

To wrap up 2017 I created my annual year in review layout:

To put the layout together, I used my year in review template (available here in my etsy shop) as well as a few different patterned papers.


I have been doing this project yearly for over 10 years now! It is so awesome to look back at all of the memories from each and every year. It is truly amazing how fast time goes and children grow up before your eyes...

You can read more about each year in review layout here: 2016 | 20152014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 and 2008-2004 where I share how I went about creating this layout as a paper scrapper :)

Make a page Monday | Week 17

Happy Monday & Happy May! Today I am sharing a non-photo layout I created for myself last month, to motivate me to push through the madness that the next 6-8 weeks become with our daily lives. Spring is our busiest time of the year, between my work and the boys sports schedules. As they get older the business just gets crazier. Some years i don't know how we survive...but we do! I used Renew - the April Memory Pockets Monthly to put this page together :D

Make a page Monday | Week 16

Spring is finally here in Michigan and it is the most wonderful time of the year when everything starts to turn the green and come alive! In February we have to visit one of our fav write greenhouses to see that much green and of course the crazy plant lady in me takes a lot of photos! I got them documented with this months Monthly-Chronicles available at The Digital Press Co.

Make a Page Monday | Week 15

Happy Monday I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter yesterday.  We had wonderful warm weather and it was a beautiful day to spend together with family. The egg hunt is always the highlight of the day and one of the few times I remember to pull out the camera. This page documents some of our egg hunt photos from last year :)

Make a page Monday | Week 14

This layout was a fun filled run down memory lane! I pulled out some oldie but goodie photos of my boys from Easter 2011! Amazing how much they have grown and changed in 6 short years!
