Layout a Day: LOAD218

It’s almost time for another month of layouts!  I’m truly looking forward to LOAD218-Choose Your Own Scrapbook Adventure.   From what I can tell, we’re going to be able to choose from a variety of prompts each day.  I love having choices so this sounds really right up my alley!

I’m currently getting organized using Historian.  I’m loading my pictures from the past several months as well as tagging them and giving them star ratings.  I find this helps me stay on track during LOAD and allows me to focus more time on scrapbooking.

Did you know that LOAD218 is open to anyone and everyone?  If you’re looking to kick start your scrapbooking for this year, consider this challenge.  There’s no judgement for doing one layout or all 28 or something in between.  It’s still more than nothing.  So what are you waiting for?  Join us!  Make your commitment in the comments and then go sign up.

Forever Friday: Finish in Four Part 3

Who wants to make a 21-99 page book in January with me using Forever Print!?  Join me each Friday, this month, right here to get a quick assignment for the week.

You don’t have to write an essay, but consider including who, where, when, why, what on each page or two page spread. Will those looking at your book need you there to tell the story? Or will the photo book INCLUDE your story?

The online templates don’t have a lot of space for journaling so it won’t be a difficult task. If you’d like to include more, consider creating a text box in MS Word and then using the snipping tool to save it as a jpg. Fitting into a photo opening can be a little tricky, but it can be done.

Share a screenshot of a page in your book in the comments.

What does food have to do with Scrapbooking?

I recently sent an email about a cool Meal Planning Boot Camp.  Someone replied asking if this was something new I was doing?  Well, not really.  When you scroll through social media, people are posting all sorts of food.  As scrapbookers, we do layouts.  Think about it – did you take pictures of your holiday dinner?  Thought so.

 

The Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle has over 3,800 recipes, meal plans, and shopping lists, so you’ll never have to cry over what’s for dinner again.

Whether you have a special diet (like keto, vegan, paleo, or gluten-free), need to save money, or have a crazy busy lifestyle that calls for freezer cooking or an Instant Pot, we have what you need to eat healthy, save time and money, and hold onto your sanity.

Check out all the details here https://us154.isrefer.com/go/HMPB2018/a3548/.

Oh and by the way, this will be the perfect help while you’re getting ready for February’s Layout a Day Challenge!

Forever Friday:  Holiday Word Art

I created this word art, for our Holiday Card, in Artisan.  I picked one kit so I know everything would match (this is I Heart Xmas from Crossbone Cuts).  The words themselves were made with text boxes and fonts.  The outline is a shape with only the stroke.  It may be a lot of elements for one graphic but once they’re grouped and a shadow is added, I thought it was a nice addition to our card!

Thank you so much for reading and supporting me!  Happy Holidays!

 

 

Make it Monday: Thankful for deliveries

I saw this idea on Facebook and knew right away that I wanted to do this.  We have packages delivered year round but like many, lots more this time of year.  This was super easy to implement and so far, our delivery people have been enjoying it!

Do you give service providers holiday gifts?  I remember my mom giving little gifts of ‘nips’ from the beverage store (you know, a candy cane shape with mini spirits).  She would leave them for the postal worker, trash pickup and lawn service people.  How do you thank your team?  Share your ideas in the comments!

Happy Holidays!
