Inspirations from Life As I Know It - January

I wanted to share these great layouts done by the CTs at Scrapable and one of my fellow designers who is doing a P365 +1 project this year. She loved the colors and the parts of this kit with the dates so she made these pages and agreed to share them. You will also find a layout that I did.

These are by designer Viola Moni...

Renata shared this layout...

Our lead CT, Wanda, submitted this layout...

 And here is one I made...

I hope these layouts give you some ideas and gets your creative juices flowing!

Are you familiar with this new way to keep a diary online? It is pretty simple to do and it makes it easy not to forget. Here's how it works...

Everyday, you get an email from OhLife asking how your day was. You simply reply to that email writing whatever you want, making it as long as you want and then hit "send". It goes to your account on OhLife where the entries are stored for you in chronological order. You can go back and read them whenever you want. And it's private so no one else is able to read what you wrote.

If you are taking pictures everyday or every week, this is a perfect way to journal at the time and then add it to your layout later when you make your page. That way you don't forget those little details because you are writing things down the day they happened.

You can have the email sent whatever time of day you want. I have mine sent in the evening so that I can immediately write about my day. There's just something about that little email sitting in your Inbox beckoning you to take time and write something. It makes it hard not to write!

I use to always keep a journal or diary and had not written anything in a long time. Getting back into writing has been fun.

Here's the link if you are interested in trying it. OhLife

I have teamed up with Designer Girl Scraps  on a kit to help you scrap your life. The name of the kit is "Life As I Know It" and the first month of the kit will be available at the end of the week.

Each month we will be offering new papers, elements and extras that will enable you to create pages for each month of the year. Throughout the year, we will offer date markers of various kinds, templates, alphas, stitches, all kinds of fasteners, frames and more. You will have the option of buying just the monthly kit or the bundle with the extras included for one low price.

Whether you take pictures daily, weekly, or whenever the mood strikes, we will have the kit to help you complete your pages. Watch for the January edition of "Life As I Know It" in the shop at Scrapable.

Creative Inspirations with Grandmother's Quilt

I made a couple of pages using my new kit and I wanted to share them with you. Since I made the kit to scrapbook some of my photos of quilts my mom had made, I scanned some photos and went to work.

Here's the kit...

And here's the pages I made...

One of the wonderful CT's at Scrapable used this kit for something entirely different than quilting photos. I love this page made by Wanda.

Grandmother's Quilt - a new kit this week!

I have been wanting to do a kit for quilts and quilters and today is the day that I am releasing such a kit. It is called "Grandmother's Quilt". It is to honor all the women in my life who made these beautiful, artistic creations and presented them to my children and me. In my earlier years, they even helped me create a few quilts myself. The quilts are truly treasures and I wanted to create pages to show them off.

I tried to use neutral colors so that any quilt could be used with this kit and I included some quotes about quilts. I hope you will enjoy creating with this kit!

Here is where you can find this kit at my shop at Scrapable:  Grandmother's Quilt
