Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’m so excited because tomorrow I leave for San Antonio for the Stampin’ Up! leadership conference! I’ve got so much to do before then though – like my swaps! Why do I leave them for the last minute?!
Anyway, remember last year, I set a goal to finish a 2-page layout a week? Well, were you wondering how that went? I was 3 short – just couldn’t get them done in time. But I am extremely happy with how close I came! This year I have decided to record our daily like on a weekly basis. We are heading into week 3 and I’m really struggling. It’s a different approach to scrapbooking, you really have to think about taking pictures of the everyday things and it’s a change in mentality. I think it’s going to take me a while to get used to it. So for the first few months there may be more journalling and accent blocks than there are photos. Once I get into the mindset of using my camera and noting the EVERYDAY things, I think it will get better.
So today I have the title page to the album to share with you. I did a lot of the elements using My Digital Studio. This panel was done using the timeless portrait dsp and a stamp brush for the word Life.
This next one is using actual SU supplies.
As was this one – very basic. I have to remember that this isn’t meant to be elaborate which is really hard for me. I keep wanting to add layers and accents. But it’s meant to be quick and easy – I need to focus on simplifying. But I am happy with the way it turned out.
Have a great day – I’m off to get my swaps and packing done!
