As I mentioned on Friday, I've been feeling random lately, so I've started working on more individual kits, usually templates, although in some cases other bits and bobs as well. I am definitely in love with the current gold trend, so it was time that I tried my hand at making some gold textures. I like them well enough, and you'll be seeing them pop up in future designs.
If you love giant doodles, I made some full 12x12 ones. I've used them both on paper and on photos, so they're pretty versatile.
Also, I made some different handwritten word art.
When the new year started, I knew I wanted to work on more daily life layouts and also that I wanted to stop being the world's worst journaler. What exactly I want this to look like is unclear, and how I'm going to accomplish it is also still unclear. I feel like there is something I'm reaching towards, but I'm not sure what it is. So, I've been steadily working towards this unidentifiable point by 1) making layouts using recent photos and 2) "journaling" lists in a notebook. I'm pleased that I've accomplished something, even though I still feel a bit like I'm working towards something in the dark.
Ironically, despite my lack of direction, I have much more motivation to work on layouts (I have a pretty extreme layout fever going on right now) than I do to work on any designing. I've more or less decided at this point to just give into the fever and hope that the layout making (particularly working with other designers work) will reinvigorate my own designing. So, while I'm in the amorphous region, you can expect from me lots of random design work and more layouts. In that vein, I've decided to face my fears and try a live event. Please come and help me figure this out.
And here are a few layouts I've made.
A new giant bundle for you this week, all the way from Egypt! Over a year ago, Jordan and I took a dream trip to Egypt and finally I have scrapped the experience! And made this enormous bundle! Since I actually used this bundle in a project, it directly reflects how I like to scrap. And it doubled in size from when I initially thought it was finished, since there were a ridiculous number of photos to scrap. I hope you can find things to enjoy in this bundle, even if you haven't been to Egypt.
Here's a few links to my initial posts about our trip:
And here's some inspiration from the lovely creative team!
And here's my finished project. I'll be uploading the layouts soon! (Refresh if you can't see the slideshow.)

It was a crazy day yesterday, as we woke up to snow! There was no mention from the weather forecast the night before about such a possibility, so when I pulled open the curtain in the morning I was completely surprised. It was absolutely like a fairy had come in the night and decorated everything. Total magic. I'd never seen snow on the beach before, so it was definitely a moment to remember. But very cold in the house! I don't think this beach house was built to weather much cold.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! We're moving back to our regular life in Corvallis, if the snow lets us!

I love digital scrapbooking. I also love to read and bake cookies. Especially while drinking tea. I've lived around the world, and love to travel, which is usually the theme of most of my scrapping projects.
