May 2015 Blog Train

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 05/01/2015 - 00:01

On Monday I released a new bundle and depending on how observant you are you may have noticed that a lot of the colors overlapped with this month's blog train. Some things in life are a coincidence, but this is not one of them. I was already working up the idea for my bundle, when I realized that the palette up for May was very similar, so I just tweaked a couple of the colors so in the end it would all match. And these springy, soft shades of pink and green have a very special place in my heart, so I figured the more the better.

Favorite Board Games: Part 2

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 04/29/2015 - 03:47

It's been quite a while since I talked about my favorite board games (see my first post here) and unsurprisingly I've found a few new favorites, including my most favorite game in the history of ever. I figured that meant it was probably time to write another post.

New Bundle: Birdhouse in Your Soul

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 04/27/2015 - 07:47

Maybe not what was imagined when people were requesting something "bird related," but sometimes I feel like I only have a little bit of input in the final outcome. The title comes from a They Might Be Giants song, and while I don't profess to really understand any of their songs, that hasn't kept me from enjoying them.

Gallery Spotlight: April 2015

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 04/22/2015 - 05:27

As always I'm impressed by the creativity that's gone on in the last month. It's taking me longer and longer to look through all the layouts, and even harder to choose a few to share here. Don't forget about our weekly layout challenges if you need to little help getting started with your own layouts.

Some April favorites:

New Kits: Quick Page Fun

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 04/20/2015 - 08:00

I've been working through my layouts and slowly adding some quick pages to the site. We're starting to have a pretty good collection of quick pages now, you can see them all here.

My Current Photo Process

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 04/17/2015 - 04:23

In response to some comments on my March 2015 Photos post I thought I'd share a little about my current photo process. It's changed a bit since I upgraded my phone, and I'm settling into a new routine.

Blog Link Up: Pick a Favorite (Kit)

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 04/15/2015 - 05:49

For this month's blog link up I thought it would be fun to share about a favorite kit. Maybe it's a favorite you designed, or maybe the one you always reach for when starting a new layout.

New Bundle: The Most Useful Bundle

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 04/13/2015 - 05:21

There are some things I find that I use quite frequently and I was getting annoyed that I couldn't find them exactly when I needed them. So I decided to solve that problem by just putting everything in one place.

Creative Team Call

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 04/09/2015 - 07:05

Some exciting news today if you're interested in getting a little more involved at Pixel Scrapper: I'm looking to expand my Creative Team! There is so much great talent hiding around every corner here and I'm lucky enough to be able to use a little of it to make my own designs better. It's so fun to work with a few people and see my designs come to life in their layouts. Maybe you'd like to join us?

March 2015 Pocket Pages

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 04/08/2015 - 07:43

I'm settling into a bit of a rhythm with my monthly pocket pages. And I'm feeling pretty good, since I actually finished up my March pages at the beginning of April, which is ahead of my usual schedule. What worked for my this month, was every Saturday I spend a little time laying out the weekly spread, just with photos and any text I wanted to include. This way things were still fresh in my mind, so I could get those details ready, but I could hold off on the decorating part while I finished up some designing.

New Bundles: Easter

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 04/06/2015 - 08:08

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. And if you found yourself celebrating Easter, I've got some more good news for you this morning! I've started working with an illustrator, as my drawing skills aren't that advanced, and our first big project was to create some Easter designs. Things got a little out of control, but I don't think anyone will mind. Enjoy!

March 2015: Some Photos

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 04/03/2015 - 07:30

I got a new phone about a month ago, and it's kind of changing up my usual photo routine. I guess I'm joining the 21st century...trying to figure it out at least...

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the month. And next week I'll be back with my pocket layouts! And also possibly the world's biggest Easter bundle(s)! It should be an exciting week. Have a lovely weekend!
