Gallery Spotlight: January 2016

I know I always say it was hard to choose layouts to feature here, but honestly, you should have seen how many tabs I had open!! It was a bit much. Soon I'm going to have to ask you all to turn it down a little and make my job a little easier ;)

Just Make Stuff

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/22/2016 - 00:00

Is one of your goals for the new year to get organized? We have a thread in our forums dedicated to organizing digital supplies, and it's such a popular topic that we've stuck it to the top of the forum and the moderators and I are always referring people to it. What's a digital scrapbooker to do with so much stuff? For some of you Pixel Scrapper is not really helping the situation, so I'm here today to let you in on a secret and the key to my success at actually finishing layouts.

Donation to International Rescue Committee

In December I sent out an email saying that Jordan and I have been challenged over the last few months to think about how Pixel Scrapper might contribute in some small way to help alleviate the current global humanitarian refugee crisis. As such we decided to pledge all new subscriber income between December 15th and December 25th to a charity benefiting refugee families.

November 2015 in Pockets + More Pocket Templates

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 01/18/2016 - 00:00

I'm coming up on the end of the year for my pocket scrapping project, just December to catch up on! I'm looking forward to doing a little summary of my pocket scrapping experience from the year (spoiler: it was amazing!). If you have any questions about pocket scrapping in general or about my process, please leave a comment below.

I'm already looking forward to another year of pockets, and in preparation I've made another set of pocket templates, with even more squares!

2015 in Photos

It was a good year! I love looking back through all the photos from the year and making a collection of my favorites. We had some fun and exciting trips this year: San Francisco, Victoria, Baltimore, an epic train trip I haven't even mentioned yet, and always time at the coast.

December 2015 in Photos

It feels like it's been a busy couple of months. We were on the road from the middle of November, and are only just now back in Oregon and settling into "normal" routines. I find I have quite a lot of things on my to-do list (finish 2015 pocket pages!!) (design stuff!!) (2016 plans!!), but before I get too ahead of myself I wanted to share a few favorite photos from December. We were mostly in Memphis at my parent's, enjoying the sunny weather and eating Christmas cookies.
