New Today: Calendar & Dates & Stuff

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 12/31/2018 - 00:00

It's that time of year to make new calendar stuff! I have a few new things to share today, plus I though I'd share a few old favorites too.

I always use a weekly pocket card in my own pocket scrapping, and I like a certain style, but I don't necessarily want to use the same one every year. This year I thought I'd try something a little different and I made editable versions, so you can add in your own date and journaling.

Tea Time Mini Album

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 12/28/2018 - 00:00

Today I'm sharing a little mini album I made using a Silhouette Cameo cut file, which you can download here if you want to make one too! I used some of my favorite tea drinking photos, as well as some of my favorite tea themed graphics from Pixel Scrapper and the result is a happy time.

Process Video #8: Gratitude Journal

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 12/20/2018 - 00:00

I've started keeping a little gratitude journal where I keep little thoughts from the day, as well as little bits and pieces that get left on my craft desk. I have a quick hybrid process video for you today creating a spread in this notebook.

New Today: Pocket Templates Redo

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 12/19/2018 - 00:00

I use these pocket templates so much, that I thought I would go ahead and offer an updated version. After using them for years, I've tweaked them with a few things and thought I would offer the updated version to you as well. The main change is that the templates now come with photo frames included. These are saved in Photoshop as a "smart layer", so if you double click on the frame layer, it will open in a new canvas and you can add your photo and journaling. I made the journaling more noticeable so that I would remember to add it!

Empty Junk Journals

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 12/14/2018 - 00:00

I thought it might be helpful to show how my junk journals look just after stitching them together, before adding in all the fun stuff. If you want to put your own journals together, this is the tutorial I used. It's a pretty simple process. First, you collect the papers you want to include and fold them together. Then, just punch a couple holes in the spine and stitch together!

September & October 2018 Pocket Pages

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 12/11/2018 - 00:00

I'm well caught up with my pocket pages for 2018. Usually at this point in the year I'm somewhat behind in the decorating process, but for a few reasons this year I'm caught up to the current week.

The first reason is that I've been enjoying making little videos about my decorating process. You can find that video collection here.

Gallery Spotlight: Christmas 2018

By Marisa Lerin Sun, 12/09/2018 - 00:00

I thought I'd pull some of my favorite Christmas layouts from the gallery to share today. Be sure to click through to see what Pixel Scrapper bundle they used to create it. We have lots of wonderful Christmas bundles here, so it can be hard to pick one. Hopefully seeing them in action will help you pick one for your own Christmas memories this year.
