Documenting December 2019…

I’ve been documenting my December since 2012. That means that this year will be my 8th doing some form of December Daily. It is absolutely my favorite project of the whole year. It’s so fun and it keeps me occupied on the long cold winter days. Not everything I document is Christmas related, a lot of it is just our day to day. I like to just choose a photo that represents our day.

I made slideshows of some of my previous December projects, or  you can check them out in the December Daily section at the top of my page.

In 2014, I used Valorie Wibbens templates and created a more pocket style album:

In 2016, I went with a more traditional scrapping style:

In 2017, I used different Journalers by Valorie Wibbens to create my foundations:

And last year, I used Soco’s amazing 6×8 templates

So while the size has stayed the same, I have been able to switch up the style a bit every year and I love them all.

This year, I will be using Designed by Soco’s fabulous December Memories 2019 6×8 Album and Kits by Pink Reptile Designs, Allison Pennington, and Rachel Jefferies. All the supplies I’m using can be found in the Document Your December section of The Lilypad Store. Here are my first few foundation pages:

Example-1Example-2Example-3Example-4Example-5

I may end up changing our cards or altering things a little, but I pretty much just have to plop in photos and journaling and I am good to go. Having these foundation pages helps more than anything to make sure I get this project done!

Do you document  your December? Are your plans for this year underway?

I’ll be back to share more foundations pages as well as the day to day once December starts! Hope you all have an amazing rest of your week! Until next time, peace, out….

Another Simple Sunday…

Yep, it’s for sure been awhile. I’m not going to say a word about doing better, because it seems like every time I say that, things happen and I don’t get it done. Suffice to say, life has just been busy and hard. I’ve been doing another job after my regular job and it’s taken every spare moment that I have.

I have also been so bad about coming here to share my layouts for Simple Scrapper, and believe it or not, they are always some of my most favorite!

Scrap Saturday…

Hey, hey, hey! I love Saturday evenings when the chores are done, dinner is done and I can just sit and relax, stay up as late as I want, and scrap my heart out or just hang out. We were going to go to the movies tonight, but not doing anything sounded a lot better. So, I thought I’d drop by here and share my new layouts for this week.

First up – In My Cup Mini Theme Kit Bundle – Storyteller September 2019 Add-on by Just Jaimee. I paired it up with an older template of hers from the March 2018 Storyteller.

Coffee

Next up – WM[squared] is guesting at The Digital Press right now and she has this fantastic kit that’s perfect for all our beach vacation photos – Great Escape: South Carolina.

Vacay

And my final layout for this week is using a gorgeous new collection from River~Rose at Sweet Shoppe Designs – Take the Chance.

You can grab any of these on sale this weekend and they are all amazing!! Now I’m off to see what else I can get in to and probably work on my PL for this week! I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!! Peace, out…

 

Well, well, well…

So much for setting a new routine and keeping up with this over the summer. I’m not even sure where the summer went. We went a few places, joined a gym, and spent a lot of time playing. So, I’m just going to pick up from here and start fresh!

I got way behind on PL as well and finally got all caught up with that this weekend. I thought I’d drop by here are share most of the summer through this week. I would never be able to get caught up if it weren’t for Just Jaimee’s Ready to Go Pocket Page Templates!!

I’ll come back tomorrow and share my layouts for some new releases this weekend!

New Releases…

Happy Friday!! Hope all my US friends had a wonderful 4th of July celebration yesterday. Ours was a little different this year because my oldest is in CA with the National Guard training for their upcoming deployment overseas. We mostly celebrated by hitting the gym and grilling some burgers.

And now that it’s Friday, it’s time to share those amazing new releases!! It’s BYOC time at The Lilypad and I got to play with a couple of new kits that were so much fun!

My youngest was obsessed with Toy Story when he was little, so this collection from Kim Jensen was so perfect for finally scrapping the photos. I paired them with brand new templates from Pink Reptile Designs:

New this week…

Happy Friday! Hope you have a fantastic weekend on tap, wherever you are in the world! Personally, I’m hoping for a quiet, simple weekend at home. I haven’t had one of those for a few weeks!

Stopping by today to share a couple of fabulous new releases for this week!

First up, a new month coming means a new Storyteller from Just Jaimee!! I think every new one becomes my new favorite!

Next is Rack ‘Em Up Collection by River~Rose. I’m loving this one because I have quite a few photos from our days of shooting pool at the Elk’s Club that I haven’t scrapped yet. Plus, I just adore the color combination! Those are my colors!

I didn’t have time to scrap with much else this week, but I hope to have more next time! Make sure you catch these goodies on sale this weekend!! Until next time, peace, out…

Life in Pockets…

Hope you’re having a great week! I had to look to see the last time I updated with Life in Pockets pages,  and I see that I’m actually not that far behind. This is the reason I love using Just Jaimee’s Ready to Go Templates! They make being caught up and staying caught up so easy! I haven’t gotten more than a couple of weeks behind this year and we are just about at the half way point. Wow, that’s hard to believe!

Anyway, I thought I would stop by today and share my latest pages! This is such a fun project and I am so glad I started it! Now to find time to go back and try to catch up on the years I missed!

Week-24LWeek-24RWeek-25LWeek-25R

Are you doing any tome of Life in Pockets or Project Life? I’d love to see your work! Thanks for taking the time to look! Peace, out…

Long time…

I have seriously been letting this summer get away from me. I haven’t spent too much time at the computer, there’s just been too much other stuff going on. The end of the school year, all three of my kids birthdays, and a wedding in the last few weeks. After school was out, I started doing a major purge of my house and a good cleaning. C and I also joined Planet Fitness, so I’ve been adding that to the routine 4 or 5 times a week. Whew. I think it’s about time for some relaxing on my porch with coffee and a book. Hoping to get on that right away!

I wanted to swing by here today and share my Simple Scrapper layouts for April and May. I love being a part of the team at Simple Scrapper.
