Memory Keeping Monday ... Digital Project Life Weeks 45 & 46

Hello. We are covered in snow this Monday morning. It snowed for over 24 hours this weekend and dumped at least 10 inches on us. Our first big snow storm of the winter season. It was really cold too, but we braved the icy temps to play outside for a little while.

I of course had my camera and was busy taking pictures while the kids and dogs played. They still love playing in the snow. Love that!

Catching up on Project Life pages with's new Squared Away Templates. Here's my Week 45 page with Template 8.

Digital pages with templates

Happy Friday! I am so glad it is Friday. It seems like this was the longest week. The recent ending of Daylight Savings, with the darker & shorter days is starting to take its toll on me. I'm no adjusting easily. My least favorite part of the week days has been simply getting out of bed, It's cold and dark, and I find myself hitting snooze more than usual. Not good when you have two kids to wake up and get off to school on time. We are really looking forward to Thanksgiving recess.

My big project this week has been trying to get organized with my Gallery Wall. I took it down over two years ago, to have our home painted ... and well, it never went back up. I wanted to switch out some photos and relocate it ... and so it kind of went on the back burner of my To Do List.

This layout, with Crystal Livesay's newest template release (collab with Little Green Frog Designs) Starlight Star Bright, shows a peek into what's going on with that Gallery Wall Project.

Memory Keeping Monday ...

Happy Veterans Day ... the kids are off from school and we are home taking it easy after a big, busy weekend of organizing and cleaning. There are so many charities and clothing drives this month ... we are taking the opportunity to really go through things in the basement, the garage, the storage area and our cluttered closets ... to reduce and recycle by way of donations. A great feeling all around, but tiring too. Today is going to be all about little projects and taking it easy.

Since today is Monday ... that means new release day over at The coral kit is new in the shop this week and on sale. It is so versatile, so Project Life perfect ... seriously there is a journal card in there for everything and anything ... and lots of beautiful colors too! I was partial to the watercolor-y cards and couldn't refrain from using them on this page:

Friday Layout

Popping in to share one little scrapbook page this Friday ... using Crystal Livesay's newest release: Listmaker ... a collab with Jimbo Jambo Designs ... and it includes 6 awesome templates. One, which specifically encourages you to scrap a page without a photo! Love that!

I choose this one, with the circles because I thought it would show case my little photos of a recent trip to the farm market for apples and pumpkins. Check out the collection of templates, available at Pixels & Co, while they are on sale!

Memory Keeping Monday ... newest Digital Project Life Theme Packs

I was at Hobby Lobby this past week, getting some Project Life journaling pens ... when I saw rows and rows of adorable theme packs hanging from the shelves. So fun to see the actual product, since I create with the digital versions. Many of the themes were already sold out! Wish I had my phone to snap a photo, but it was MIA that afternoon. (I found it a few hours later under the back seat of my car???)

UPDATE: had a question about how I "digitally" divided the large focal photo (in the LO below). 
This blog post has the tutorial.

Well in Digital Project Life land ... there are lots of new theme packs on sale & ready for hoarding!

I used these kits this week:

Friday Layouts

So glad it's Friday. The kids have Monday off from school ... so it's a 3 day weekend for us! Woo - Hoo. Really hoping to spend a decent amount of time outdoors ... the leaves are starting to glow with the colors of autumn and the Hudson Valley is looking gorgeous. I want to enjoy it before it is gone.

The photos, in the layouts below, were taken at the end of September at a local Apple Orchard. We still have way too many apples left to warrant a trip back there, but I'd love to get out and go for a hike or day trip somewhere scenic.

The first layout uses a new template from Crystal Livesay (I've just joined her team and am super excited to be working with her ... & her amazing templates!). This template is part of a pair of Photocentric Templates, available today (and on sale!) at Pixels & Co.

Layouts with Templates

Today I have a bunch of layouts to share using some fabulous templates by Crystal Livesay. She's a designer over at Pixels & Co and her templates are really fun to work with.

This first page is filled with all the colors & paterns I am loving right now ... soft pinks & greens with pops of color and a bit of black ... and for the patterns ... watercolor, dots, chevrons and florals. So pretty.

Crystal Livesay | These Moments V2 Template
Maggie Holmes Collection
Maggie Holmes | Flea Market Digital Project Life Mini
Creashens | Wonderfall (stitches) 
The Ardent Sparrow | Savannah (buttons) 

The next layout is from our extended family summer vacation spent on Lake Ontario ... it's a picture of my daughter, nephew and SIL enjoying our day out on the boat. It's amazing how being out on the water can erase all your stress and worries ... could use a little of that right now.

Crystal Livesay | Effortless V2 Template
Dear Lizzy | Lucky Charm Collection
One Little Bird | Stargazer
Gennifer Bursett | Anchored Collection
2 am | Destination Adventure (paint)
Lou Cee Creations | Sailaway (pinwheel)
Angie Kovacs | Sailaway (wooden wheel)

This layout expresses my love-hate relationship with Fall. The mum photo is from our weekend's day trip to the Apple Orchard. This layout came together quickly using Crystal's template and just one kit, Wonderfall, by Creashens.

Crystal Livesay | These Moments V2 Template
Creashens | Wonderfall Kit

All three layouts were done is short amount of time ... that is the beauty of using well designed templates. Love that! 

And I have just one more layout to share today. These photos were taken in poor lighting with my iphone while my (too old to be riding tricycles) kids were goofing off in the department store & zooming up and down the aisles. But the memory was too good to not use the photos just bc they weren't perfect, so I scrapped them anyway. I used an adorable kit by Dani Mogstad to liven up the page and really accent the colors in the Instagram photos.

That's all for today. Thanks for looking.

Memory Keeping Monday

Good morning. Feeling a little slow this Monday as I try to get back into the swing of things. We had such a great weekend with the Grandparents ... good food, crew practice, a soccer game, some shopping, the Appalachian Trail, a gem & fossil show (for the boy's Science class), movie night, and a day trip to our favorite Apple Orchard across the Hudson river. Love weekends like that!

Still need to download all my photos ... I'm sure many will make their way into a scrapbook page very soon.

For now ... I have a few Project Life Layouts with the newest releases from Digital Project Life ... the themed mini kits. There are so, so many mini themed kits releasing today ... that it would be easier to just link you up with the website so you can see all the awesomeness for yourself! 

These are the three kits I couldn't wait to get my hands on:

Little Details | Ali Edwards: Game Time Brushes, Dani Mogstad: Play Ball Kit, Anna Aspnes: LoopDaLoop & Personal Best Word Transfers Patti Knox: Little Enamel Sports Balls

Little Details | Laurie Ann HGD: Baked with Love

That's all I have for today. But seriously, go check out all the Theme Packs while they are on sale! Happy Shopping!!!

Latest Layouts . . . lots of them!

Just popping in to share the latest layouts (and there are quite a few ... with the kids back in school, I've been busy creating) with the newest product releases this week:

Up first is Designs by Dani's School House Kit. A darling back to school kit with an amazing color palette ... very old school!

Designs by Dani | Chalkboard Alpha
on the photo:
Amy Tangerine Brushes | Ready Set Go & Yes Please

I also created this page with The Ardent Sparrow's Sentimentality Journal Cards. Definitely not intended to be a back to school journal card theme, but the quotes and sayings on the cards were fitting for the pictures captured of my kid's after their first day back to school.

The next scrapbook layout I have to share with you is using The Ardent Sparrow's Watercolor Papers and Journal Cards ... every color of the rainbow in this collection, so it goes with everything! I loved how the soft blues, greens and greys complimented my summery, outdoor pictures.

Becky Higgins | Project Life Template U

Here's an adorable pair of collections Brand New Girl and Brand New Boy by The Ardent Sparrow. Perfect for baby girls and boys or older children as well.

Memory Keeping Monday with Project Life's Heritage Kit

Today, Digital Project Life has the new Heritage Edition on sale in the shop. It is elegant, with a neutral color scheme and simply beautiful ... it is a kit that will absolutely let your photos take center stage, whether true heritage photos, black and whites or even modern color photographs.

I choose to document some of my photos from our August extended family vacation. The island we visited was nothing short of amazing and the history associated with the island was fascinating. I converted most of my photographs to black and white for a timeless look and then added in just a few color photos to give the sense of the beauty of the island (something I did not want to forget when looking back). I am in love with the way this kit complemented my photos without taking away from the beauty of the images.

Here's the double spread:

Crystal Wilkerson: stitches, Katie Pertiet: In Stitches Wings No 1, Patti Knox: Pin it Pearls, Ali Edwards: Love You Circle Overlays

Friday Layouts

What a week. The first week of school for the kiddos is coming to an end, we are settling into the routine and looking ahead with some new experiences on the horizon ... the after school hours will sure be busy this year! Still trying to figure out how exactly we fit in a few weekly runs, with the kids, into the schedule with school, homework, and after school activities. Hopefully it all works out.

Today I have two pages to share with you. The Ardent Sparrow released a set of templates at the Lily Pad on Wednesday. These layouts are perfect for a clean layout, but can also be used to create a really layered & clustered look as well. So versatile.

I also have this page to share, made with Legacy, a gorgeous collaboration that is on sale now at The Lily Pad.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Monday Memory Keeping ... back to school!

Hey there! Today is the First Day of School for my kids ... both in Middle School again this year, one in 7th and one in 8th. I think this is the latest First Day of School for  us yet. So ... for me it was "time". For them ... not so much. They are never happy to see their carefree days of summer disappear. I don't blame them.

In September, I am always happy to get back into a routine again. I hope they settle in to their new routine over the course of the week as well. (It usually takes a few days ... but once they get into the swing of things & get to see their friends ... routine becomes the new normal rather quickly.) Can't wait to hear how their day went, later this afternoon!

This morning I have two digital project life style layouts to share with you. This one is about last week and preparation for going back to school ... I documented the little things like getting haircuts, back to school shopping and organization of supplies. I used the new Maggie Holmes Flea Market Mini kit (on sale this week!). It is darling and I can't wait to use it again & again!

Dani Mogstad | School Daze Complete Kit available at
Stitches by Crystal Wilkerson
Dear Lizzy | Lucky Charm Element Pack 2 (polka dot banner-recolored)

This next page features Amy Tan's new Digital Project Life kit, Cut & Paste. Also on sale this week. Feeling nastalgic about the summer ending, I used it to document highlights from June. Love the way this kit is so soft & muted, yet still so colorful! Awesome! 

other little details:
Amy Tan | Sketchbook Element Pack 2 (flowers and paper bits)
Dear Lizzy | Lucky Charm Element Pack 2 (polka dot banner flag)
The Ardent Sparrow | Better Together, Part 1 (buttons)
A. Pennington | Destination Adventure (gold banner flag and birds)
Stitches by Crystal Wilkerson
