Simply Tuesday…

I often say that Tuesdays are the forgotten day of the week. Mondays seem to be the days that everyone dreads, Wednesdays are hump day, Thursdays mean it’s almost the weekend, and everyone loves Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But what about poor little Tuesday? Today, I’m celebrating Tuesday by catching up on all the layouts for Simple Scrapper that I am behind on posting. Yikes. I really have to do better about that.  I’m pretty sure I need to catch up on December, January, and now February.

I love being a part of the team at Simple Scrapper. I really feel like it helps me to create some meaningful, purposeful layouts and inspires me to create pages that I may not have thought of otherwise. The Premium Membership offers exclusive content and a supportive, generous, and inspiring community. So much amazing content! Some of the benefits include a private groups, Spark Magazine, chats, podcasts, sketches, and story starters. Totally awesome!

While we are coming by to update, let’s updated Project Life as well!!

Here is Week 4, using Stories of Life 1 by Scrapping with Liz, Storyteller 2020 January by Just Jaimee, and Week Dates by Sabrina’s Creations

I am so loving these templates and the clean simple look!!

I’m also super excited because I just ordered my 2018 and 2019 books from Shutterfly during their unlimited pages sale!! I got both 105 page books for just arouond $40. Amazing!!

MOC Update…

MOC at The Lilypad is rolling right along and I’ve been able to keep up for the most part. I did have to do a little catch up last weekend, but it wasn’t too difficult! If you’re not playing along, it is not too late! You have until Feb 2nd to complete all the pages! If you complete them all, you will receive a $20 gift certificate to The Lilypad store!!! So amazing!!

I just thought I’d pop in and share my pages to date! Only 4 to go!

 

Thanks for looking!! I hope you have a fabulous week ahead!! Peace, out…

 

Let’s get the party started…

It’s a little late, but it’s time to get Project Life 2020 underway. I had to wait a bit and finally finish up 2019 before I got started. If your interested in checking out the rest of those pages, you can find them under Project Life 2019 at the top of the page. In planning 2020, I knew I wanted to do something a bit different and something a bit more simple. I chose some amazing new templates by Scrapping with Liz – Stories of Life. They are just perfect for the vision of the new year that I have.

I thought I’d drop by here and share the first three weeks. In addition to Liz’s templates, I am using Just Jaimee’s Storyteller line, and Week Dates by Sabrina’s Creations.

I am loving the way it is going so far!! Can’t wait to move on for the rest of the year! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous week!! Peace, out…

Life Happens…

Man oh man, I have had the best intentions to do so many things with this space, but there has sure been a lot working against me lately. School started, I took a job doing homebound after school, Thanksgiving, Christmas. It’s just been one thing after another. I am hoping to come up with a regular blogging schedule in the next couple of days and do my best to stick to it. But for now, I wanted to come by and share a few layouts!

If you don’t know, the Month of Challenges is going on at The Lilypad. It is a challenge a day, every day, for the month of January. I love it. It keeps me occupied during a time of the year that usually really gets me down. There are so many fabulous challenges that stretch creativity. So many of my favorite layouts come from this time of year! If you haven’t, you should check it out!

Here are my layouts so far, all are linked to my gallery at TLP for credit:

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.
