2019 Documenting

I’m off to a good start in the new year! For 2019, I want to document in 3 ways: weekly Project Life, daily journaling in my Hobonichi cousin (A5 format), and weekly documenting in the Hobonichi weeks traveler’s notebook.

I have gotten started, and I will share a couple projects here, which were inspired by Pantone’s color for 2019: coral.

Here’s my title page for Project Life, made using hybrid cards from The Lilypad’s Memory Pockets Monthly: MEMOIR.

I’m still working on my weekly spread.

And here is my first week in the Hobonichi weeks  (before adding journaling):

Stamps used:

Sakuralala 365: Fuyu, Me Time

Sweet Stamp Shop: Monthly Script Stamp, Year Round, Pour Decisions

Studio Calico: I believe they are all retired, but there is a digital version of the Conrad alpha here. Stickers and washi are from past Documenter kits/Planner kits.

Ink: Distress Oxide in abandoned coral.

 

What about you – have you gotten started on documenting 2019? I’d love to hear your plans!

Document Your December with The Lilypad!

Hello! As promised, I’m here today to share a few of the pages I made for my 2017 December Daily album using the Document Your December products from The Lilypad.

The traveler’s notebook cover is a passport size from Foxy Fix in Sugar Coconut leather, with a gold foil embossed pine tree.

And here are a few of the pages I made.

I’m a little bit over halfway through the album, so I hope to complete it soon, so I can start thinking about this year’s album! What about you, do you make a December Daily album? If so, what format are you using this year?

 

Studio Calico November Kits: Sonnet

Hello and happy November! The Sonnet kits go for sale today at Studio Calico, and I got a head start using some of the digital products for this month.

This is an 8.5″x11″ hybrid page. I used the 12″x12″ Sonnet digital papers and the Sonnet 6″x8″ digital stamp on the background, which was printed on a piece of cardstock.

Then I added some embellishments from my stash – wood veneer letters, chipboard stars and sequins.

Also… did you hear about the latest stamp subscription from Studio Calico? It’s a 6″x8″ stamp set.

You can subscribe here.
It’s a really nice set, I see many used for the numbers – birthdays, milestones, year in review (like how I used it for the pumpkin patch, but with some photos that recap your year)…

Have a good start of the month!! Only 2 months left to wrap up 2016!

I added some stamping too using the Asia stamp set.

Have a great weekend!

August Kits at Studio Calico: Young at Heart

Hello and happy August! As has been my tradition since January, I made a couple of hybrid pages using the digital releases from Studio Calico for the Young at Heart August kits. They are both 8.5″x11″. From what I’ve seen of the kits, this is going to be a good month!

To make this page, I used these digital products:

The background was made repeating one of the journal cards from this set, and the hearts are cut out from another of the cards. I recolored the labels to match.

I stamped the title using an old 6×8 alpha stamp called Oliver, and since the colors turned out to be brighter than I expected (I blame it on the matte photo paper, which is awesome for printing, less awesome for stamping), I added some vellum to the bottom of the page to tone it down. I love the result!

To make this page, I used these digital products:

I fell in love with the design and colors of this greeting card by Jasmine Jones, so I used it as my background, combined with one of the 12×12 digital papers and a printable word strip.

I hope you have a great start of the week and month!

Happy Wednesday!

Hello and happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week, and the weekend couldn’t come sooner! I have two projects to share with you today. The first one is a notecard set I made for the April Project Parade at The Lilypad.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the flowers and just laid them on top of kraft card bases. I love how they turned out!
Next, I made a page with some products that are 50% off today for the weekly Something Old, Something New sale!

I hope you have a great rest of the week!

Studio Calico February Kits

Hello and happy February! It’s Reveal Day at Studio Calico for the Savannah kits, and to get in the mood for these lovely new kits I have made a page with some of the digital printables.

The hard part was to get my husband to pose in the photo.. plus it’s been so dark here lately! In fact, this is an older photo, so I will swap it out as soon as we take new pictures. I’m hoping today is the day! 🙂

The 3″x3″ card printable set I used also is available as a physical product (starting at noon EST today if you are a subscriber, and at 3 PM EST for everyone). I resized the cards at 2.5″ for my page prior to printing them out. I cut out all the labels with my Silhouette so they are ready to go – super handy for Project Life with the Documenter kit! I love that they come with a blank version and a version with some pre-printed words on the labels – I chose to print the latter.

I also used some heart puffy stickers and an old stamp to finish this page.

For the cards that say “I love you”, I used my newly discovered foiling technique.

Happy Reveal Day!
If you want to start a new six- or 12-month subscription you can get a new Hello Forever planner ($54.99 value) for free in your choice of color. Just use GRAYSTONEFREE, MELONFREE or CLEARSKYFREE at checkout in the promo code box. 🙂 Offer valid this month only!

Hello Friday

Hello and happy Friday! I have a bunch of fun, colorful pages to share today, made with the new releases from The Lilypad (20% off through the weekend)!

It’s also the day of the release of the Memory Pockets Monthly collection, which is absolutely fantastic this month!

Credits:

I had to cut of my poor husband’s head in this photo because there was a lamp right behind him that looked like it was on his head – ugh! I hate when that happens, and of course I didn’t catch it at the time I took the photo.

Finally, I made a hybrid page using the MPM add ons by Sahlin Studio.

Not your typical snow colors… but I love how it turned out!

Have a wonderful end of the week!

ETA: and I scrapped one more over the weekend!
