I am taking a little much-needed time off to refresh and create new content for you. Sometimes you just need to fill your own tank, and I hope you will take a little time for yourself as well. 

I did want to remind you that there is still a little time to grab the In My Pocket Memory Keeping Class for 50% off, until October 19th! You can click the image below and it will take you right the the class page where you can sign up. I would LOVE to have you join us!

This is a layout for Natalie's personal album, and I have decided on some of the kids' layouts to do one side 12x12 and the other side pocket pages. How fun is that, and it makes it so easy to include more photos!

So I hope you will stay tuned! As soon as November starts I plan to begin sharing my December album process with you and I will be jumping back into my December 2011 album as well. So many exciting things on the horizon! See you soon!

Freebie Friday Silhouette Cut File | 10,000 Words

Hi everyone, it's Friday and I hope you are getting ready for a great crafty weekend! To help inspire you, I am offering a free Silhouette cut file on the first Friday of every month. Be sure to check out the other file, if you missed it! Here is today's cut file. If you Click on the image it will take you to the product page, where you can download the file.

This layout is based on a really special conversation that my husband Alan and I were having, and these are words he used to explain why he rubs my feet every night! This is the layout I was inspired to create.

I wanted to try using the Felicity Jane solid card stock papers that come in each month's kit, and let me tell you they cut like butter in the Silhouette! I am loving this mustard and indigo color combination, so I used the indigo paper to show through behind the cut file.

I kept the embellishments to a very minimum here, just the adorable hexagonal confetti pieces, some florals to repeat the background paper, and a few stamped sentiments.

For my journaling I used one of the tags in the Heidi kit and tucked it behind the photo. I think this is a great way to include your journaling when your title is already really bold and graphic on the page.

Mixed Media Layout | Monday Monday ft. Paige Evans Turn the Page!!!

Hi lovelies! Today I am sharing this lovely layout about bad Mondays - do you have them?! I did this week and oh boy, it set me back a bit. So I settled in to practice a bit of creative self care. In this layout I am working with Paige Evans brand new collection called Turn the Page and the Triangle cut file from Paper Issues!

 

Here is a look at the completed layout:

There are so many yummy things about this layout, so let's start with the cut file from Paper Issues. I love the triangles and I wanted to cut the 2x2 papers to fit behind the cut file.

I used my Studio Calico paints to create a really subtle background, and you can just see it peeking out behind my title work. Paint is one of my favorite ways to practice creative self care: moving the brush around the page is so very satisfying to me!

My title began with the days of the week wood words from Freckled Fawn and I have borrowed the words of Monday Monday, a song by The Mamas and The Papas. I know, can't you just hear it in your head now? The rest of the title is made using the alphabet from Turn the Page. My journaling fit perfectly in between the lines here.

At the top of the page I added just a tiny banner from the 2x2 paper pad. This establishes the boundary of the layout here, so your eye knows exactly where this layout ends.

I am so glad you joined me today! This was a fun layout and a great way to practice creative self care during a really rough week. See you soon!
