Get Ready for 2015

December Free ScrapinarYou all know that I am a fan of Lain Ehmann who hosts these wonderful free scrapinars where we can learn a ton of stuff but I am also a huge fan of Layle Koncar of Simple Stories. Ever since I took Layle’s class through Lain during True Scrap Pocket Pages and I fell in love with her style and learned so much from her class.

You can’t imagine my excitement for December’s free scrapinar then with these two wonderful women and the fact that it is all about planners, which is all the rage right now and you have one very excited lady.

I am all about planning for the new year but apparently I have also been undecided about which planner I am going to use for 2015 with all the new products on the market right now. I am leaning heavily towards the Erin Condren planner but I still haven’t made a decision.

I think I will make a decision after this free scrapinar with Lain and Layle. This is what you will learn during the FREE scrapinar

  • The latest products available for fun and colorful planners
  • How to make your planner do double-duty as a memory-keeping aid
  • Fun ways to use products you already own to customize your planner, pockets, and pages
  • … and more super time-saving tips!

While Layle will be sharing the new “Life… Documented” planner line from Simple Stories , she’ll be sharing ideas that can work with just about any planner or product line. You won’t want to miss this interactive, entertaining session. And as always, we’ll have time for YOUR questions. This scrapinar is the perfect kick-off to your 2015!

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.
