Hybrid Process | 2017 Project Life Week 17 ft. Freckled Fawn!!

Hi guys! Today I am sharing my process for creating my 2017 Project Life Week 17 layout. The hybrid layout was created in Photoshop CC using Sahlin Studio Clean Lined Templates and Paislee Press Weekend Vibes. My digital process is in the video here!

Now for the fun part, the embellishing!

Let's take a look at the finished layout:

Our stories for this week included giving up cable for Netflix, progress in the yard in which the hosta have taken over, organizing our chaotic candy cabinet, and a sweet boy with his bunny.

 The Weekend Vibes collection is particularly neutral with great little pops of color, so the punch in my layout comes from the bright happy colors in the Freckled Fawn kit! The transparent numbers absolutely had to be used!

When I designed this card in Photoshop, I left blank space on purpose so I could add physical embellishments. I used the stamps as a home base for the hearts. I also added washi tape above the word strips along with the chipboard word strips.

For the right hand side I started with photos of our messy candy cabinet and I loved this word art from Paislee Press, chaotic and messy, to tie it all together. I also was so in love with these sunglasses from Freckled Fawn that I just had to use them too! So I just did a fun little cluster right on top of the photo of my flowers.

And the photos of our messy candy stash: do you ever have places in your house that just bug the crap out of you and finally you tackle it and get control over the situation?! Well that was our candy situation until this week! Now everyone has their own little bucket and that is it. Whew!

I loved capturing this adorable photo of Addison with the bunny after giving the bunny his bath and I love that Project Life still gives a wonderful place for photos like this. I love how these moments fit into the context of the whole week.

Another favorite capture: Alan cooking dinner for everybody. He does a large majority of the cooking in our house and it means the world to me. I am so incredibly thankful for all the hard work he does to keep our house going!

In My Pocket Memory Keeping Class | Free Sample Process Video and Pre-Order!!!

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share a sample process video from my In My Pocket Memory Keeping class! The video is really similar to my previous pocket pages and is all about a really special occasion in our family life: the day Alan and I got engaged! Also stay tuned for pre-order information for this awesome class!

I am so excited about bringing this class to life and cannot wait for it to begin! In the meantime, I thought I would share this really special layout with you about the night Alan and I got engaged. It falls directly into my 2012 Project Life album, which is one of the albums I will be sharing in the class. Have a look at the layout!

Our engagement story is really the kind of every day moment that doesn't really happen every day but it did happen in the very beginning of 2012 so this is the perfect place to document it. Alan and I knew very early on in our relationship that we were meant to be together, and our engagement actually felt like a given at that point! The kids already knew he was going to ask me because they needed to be involved in every step, and they were so excited! They thought it was their idea!

I decided to use my Studio Calico Documenter Kit for May 2017 called Alfresco. I loved the navy and oranges in the kit because they tie in the colors in my photos. Perfect! I had to use this geometric card for my date card, and I added the date with the alphabet stamps included in the kit. 2012 was stamped using an Ali Edwards Time stamp set.

I love the speech bubbles included in this kit, and I chose this orange one again to tie in some of the orange tones in the photos. The word yes seems highly apropos to this layout as well!

Hybrid Traveler's Notebook Layout | Beauty ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Whimsical Templates No. 05

Hi guys! Today I am using a template from On A Whimsical Adventure to create this really awesome traveler's notebook layout. What?! Use a template for a traveler's notebook? Yes! 

This was such a fun layout to create! In the template I chose to print only certain layers on the vellum, and the rest on card stock for the background. I love re-interpreting digital product into physical product like this!

Hopefully you can see here how the vellum layers beautifully over the background texture. Creating your own vellums using digital templates is a great way to use supplies in a unique way.

To place this layout in the notebook itself, I pried open the staples, lightly punched holes in the center fold, and placed them into the staples that are already in the notebook. You could also sew or washi tape these layers into the notebook as well!
