I recently finished up a new paper pocket album, with photos from the 2 years we lived in Korea. It was enjoyable and a little bittersweet to go back and revisit these photos. Korea for some reason is the only place I actually get homesick for, and lookin ...

Summer Road Trip: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 Once in Minnesota we had to decide on the route home. Because of family, we are quite familiar with the route between Oregon and Minnesota. But the thrill of the road won out, and our desire to get ...

Summer Road Trip: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 Tennessee was the main destination for us on the trip, the impetus for going on the road at all. Jordan's youngest brother graduated from Union University, and we wanted to be there to join in the fest ...

Summer Road Trip: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 Our next stop was the beautiful town of Santa Fe in New Mexico. We enjoyed walking the streets and checking out all the cute shops and galleries. Who knew there could be so many galleries in one place? Santa Fe was ...

See the first part of the trip here. On our way out of California we drove through Death Valley, the only national park we visited where the ranger urged us to stay in the car and not wander around too much. Summer was apparently in full swing. By the tim ...

Jordan and I are just back from a decently epic road trip around the US. The trip came upon us as a kind of surprise, we had been planning to drive to Tennessee for the graduation of Jordan's brother, but time got away from us and suddenly we had to ...

Both Jordan and I love riding on the train. Often, the train trip has been a highlight of our travels in the past. If you have the time, there's nothing better than the view out the window as you watch the terrain change as you travel from one place ...

I love being able to mix the pocket pages with some regular style layouts. It takes the pressure off trying to make layouts for all the pictures from a trip, and lets me focus on the photos I most want to scrap. Also, it's just so much easier to incl ...

In May we had a great chance to go with some friends to Victoria, Canada. I had never been to Canada, and I'd been real keen to go, so I was quite excited about this opportunity. Plus, the more I heard about Victoria, the more it sounded like my kind ...

On Monday I mentioned that I had realized I didn't have a proper travel bundle. What ultimately prompted me to remedy this was the decision to make my parents a photo book for Christmas. If you've been reading this blog or been around the site f ...

A few weekends ago we took a long day trip to Eastern Oregon to see the Painted Hills. Declared by some to be one of the seven wonders of Oregon, I didn't know anything about them myself, but was, as they say, along for the ride. I can confirm that t ...

A good chunk of my designs are travel inspired. But in the past I've tried to keep things more generic because no one really wants the travel theme interpreted 500 ways. But then I realized I don't actually have a proper travel bundle. By doing ...

A few weeks ago Jordan and I visited the Wildlife Safari Park about two hours down the highway from us. We had bought a Groupon a while ago and the time had come for us to use it! I wasn't sure what to expect from a safari in the middle of Oregon now ...

I've started to go back into the archives to pull ideas for themes for my kits. Today I have a bundle inspired by my family's time in Slovenia. My parents lived there for one year, and visiting was a European fantasy come true. When we went, it ...
