December Daily Pages

Long time no post, but it is photo heavy. Decided to play along with Ali E. this year and create a DD album. Took a while to put together and I started after Thanksgiving b/c that is when the season starts to me. I have to say that so far it is one of my fave projects. I already love the memories that are recorded in here. It is going to be chunky and full of goodness by the 25th. A great way to record Claire's first holiday season as well. If you are interested in the project details or want some great inspiration, check out the link. December Daily

Pumpkin Patch

Claire and I at the Pumpkin Patch. She wouldn't look at the camera straight on, so this is as good as it gets :-) This is the little outfit she is wearing for Halloween.

Getting Serious About Design

I decided that I really want to take my scrapping to the next level. I don't want my layouts to be hit or miss anymore. So I am going to start studying design principles, so I can make more pleasing layouts. I am taking two online classes. One is Design Workshop by Lisa Dickinson at Ella Publishing and the other is Building Pages by Debbie Hodges at Get It Scrapped. I am happy with my pages, but I want to improve and I believe that I have room for growth. This is the first layout using a grid design. It is the first lesson in Lisa's book. I really love it. First time I have ever used a grid before :-)

All of the pp pieces came from this kit except for the background. Journaling: If you knew how much grandma loved you, you'd know you were the luckiest girl in the world.

New Layouts

Adding layouts I did for a challenge over at Willow Traders :-) Sorry for the bad pics. Too lazy to scan and the lighting is bad right now.

Feeling Crafty :-) Multiple Layouts

Been feeling crafty lately :-) Gotta use up those Noel Mignon kits somehow :-) Did all these this week. I am in love with 8.5x11 layouts right now. I did my first one a week or two ago. I think I may switch over from 12x12. Some of these also use sketches by Becky Fleck. Still trying to get use to arranging items on a 8.5x11 layout vs. 12x12. Click the pics to read the journaling and see details on the 8.5x11 layouts.

Hadn't posted over here in a while. I have a private website set up for Claire and jsut don't have much time to do both. But i do know a few people check in here to see pics of Claire growing, so here is one from her fourth month :-) She is getting so big, is super bright and healthy :-)
