Layout A Day


Do you think you could create a layout a day? I know I never thought I could especially with my kids and working oh and don’t forget the kids. In all seriousness I managed to complete a layout a day on several occasions all with the wonderful help of Lain Ehmann. Next month the only layout a day that is available to everyone will be held.

You might be wondering what this is all about and I am going to tell you. Everyday in the month of February you are going to get a prompt and that prompt is going to be something different everyday and then you job is to go scrap that prompt. You get to join a private gallery, you get to hear interviews from other scrappers, you get to win prizes but in reality I think my favorite part of LOAD is the comradery that occurs within the Flickr group.

Within the Flickr group you meet new scrappers and you get inspired by all the layouts that are posted in the private group. My other favorite thing about LOAD is the fact that the prompts always stretch me and always get me to try new things. I absolutely love the layouts that I have created in LOAD and I have even created my own special album to hold my LOAD layouts.

Merry Christmas Eve

Sketches and Pockets

I love sketches if you follow me on Pinterest you will know that I pin sketches for inspiration all the time. I have been oh so lucky to use one of Jen’s sketches from Jen Wright Designs and truly enjoyed the fact that she got me to step outside of the box on this one.

Here is Jen’s template. I didn’t use it exactly as she created it but I used it for my Project Life album and it worked out perfectly.
