November & December 2018 Pocket Pages

By Marisa Lerin Sun, 01/20/2019 - 00:00

I'm feeling very organized this year, as I have my pocket pages for 2018 already finished! I've even ordered my photo book, which I'll share with you when it comes. This is my fourth completed year of pocket scrapping and I might actually love it more now than when I started. There are a few bonus spreads in these two months.

Favorite Layouts from 2018

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/18/2019 - 00:00

Continuing to look back at 2018, I thought I'd share some of my favorite layouts shared from the gallery in 2018. This is usually pretty hard to do every month when I pick some favorites, but trying to narrow it down even further was a real challenge. Please share your own favorites with us here as I certainly missed some great ones!

Favorite Personal Layouts from 2018

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 01/15/2019 - 02:45

Continuing with my 2018 reflections, today I'm looking back at some of my favorite personal layouts from 2018. This was the year that I really went all in on my paper scrapbooking, mostly working in smaller notebooks, but really enjoying myself. I also finished my fourth year of weekly pocket scrapping! This habit is really what frees me up to make all the paper shenanigans I do. Since I have this "official" and digital record of our lives, whatever else I get done is just for fun and icing on the cake.

New Today: The Good Life January 2019

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 01/14/2019 - 00:00

I'm still going ahead with the Good Life project in the new year, but I have a few new ideas I hope to include. This month I created a kit I called "Scrap Therapy." I'm not sure I'll make kits with this title in the future, but I think I will include similar kinds of elements in the future. If there are things you'd like to see included on a regular basis, be sure to let me know!

Hybrid Project: Scraps Book 2018

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/11/2019 - 00:11

Today I'm sharing my scraps book from 2018. As the title implies, this is just a random collection of pages that I made. I consider my yearly pocket style photo book to be my "official" documenting process, so all these hybrid projects I do are done entirely for fun and frankly not even necessarily to be saved in the long-term. They may fall apart, or fade, or I may get tired of lugging them around. But it was very freeing when I realized I didn't have to keep everything I made. I can make it, and keep it, or not! It's up to me.

Favorite Designs from 2018

I've been sharing some favorites from 2018. I started with my favorite personal designs, and now I'll share some of my favorite designs from others.

Favorite Personal Designs From 2018

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 01/08/2019 - 00:00

I always feel like the new year sneaks up like it's a sprinter, and everyone has done their reflections in some magical time after Christmas that doesn't exist for me. So this year I thought I'd spend the whole month of January looking back at 2018, and that I'd share some of it here. To start I thought I'd take a look at my designs from 2018 and pick some favorites. I do make a lot of stuff, so it's easy to forget what I've done. Sometimes I have good ideas and then I forget to repeat them. Looking over what I made seems like a good place to start as I get ready to work on stuff for 2019.

Gallery Spotlight: December 2018

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/04/2019 - 07:19

December is often a busy month for people, so I'm always impressed to see people uploading layouts. I know I fell a bit behind on my own scrapping during the month. Looking to catch up soon! In the meantime, here are a few of my favorites from the last month. If you like what you see here, join us for a scraplift challenge in the forums!
