Process Video #17: Baby Junk Journal

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 02/28/2019 - 00:00

I have a quick hybrid process video for you today in my Magnus's junk journal. The fun heart cut out was included in the notebook when I made it, so to make these fun layouts I just had to find a cute photo to peek through. I included this sweet pocket card with the narwhal, as well as some other fun embellishments that were lying around on my craft table.

Making a Junk Journal

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 02/26/2019 - 00:00

I've had some questions on how I make the junk journal inserts that I've been using. And while I certainly didn't invent this method, I thought I'd go ahead and make a video tutorial on the stitching process. It's really very easy, doesn't require a lot of tools (just something to poke your holes, an embroidery needle and some thread) and is a great way to use up whatever paper you have leftover. I tend to make mine in either a travelers notebook size (4x8) or a smaller passport size (3.5x5), but you can make it whatever size works for you.

New Today: Desert Spring

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 02/25/2019 - 00:00

Another fun redo for you today. I shared a few weeks ago with the Birds in Snow redo that I was going back to share a bit of love to some of my old bundles. Some of these old ones are among my most favorite bundles, and I especially love the colors of this Desert Spring bundle. This bundle is so old that I actually designed it when we lived in Amman, Jordan, which was a lot of years ago. And that beautiful desert landscape inspired what you see here today.

Process Video #24: Travelers Notebook

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 02/22/2019 - 00:00

I have a quick hybrid process video for you today in my travelers notebook. I used the Good Life: January Print Kit for this layout. To maximize how many papers I could use, I cut four papers in half and used one half of each to make my background. I secured these four different papers to each other with some fun washi tape.

I have a quick hybrid process video for you today in Magnus's junk journal. This layout features a fun sequin pocket which was actually included with the notebook when I made it. There is also a tag with hidden journaling, and I used this cut file with my Silhouette. I did some watercolor splats on the paper before I cut the file. Some fun paper layers behind the photo and the layout is complete!

Scrapbook Flip Through: Travel Scraps TN

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 02/20/2019 - 00:00

In this video I do a quick flip through of my travel scraps travelers notebook. In this journal I keep all the bits of ephemera that I can't keep in my digital pocket pages. It took me several years to finish this journal as I'd just add to it whenever we took a short trip, or even an afternoon outing that I felt like saving. This was the perfect little project for me to get a little bit of tactile scrapping going when I was doing mostly digital.

Five Years of Pocket Scrapping

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 02/19/2019 - 00:00

When I was uploading my most recent pocket pages from this year to the gallery I thought it might be fun to compare my first week from the five years I've been doing this to see how my style has evolved over time.

Process Video #23: Travelers Notebook

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 02/15/2019 - 00:00

I have a quick hybrid process video for you today in my travelers notebook. I used the Good Life: January Print Kit for this layout. I print these digital kits at home and I use regular copy paper. This keeps my notebook nice and thin. This layout includes a fun shaker pocket of sequins and a nice paper pile that includes scraps of a paper bag and a gold foiled paper.

New Today: Birds In Snow Redo

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 02/11/2019 - 00:00

I've been thinking a lot lately about what kinds of elements and papers I actually use and it has helped solidify my design process. As I've been figuring these things out, it's also inspired me to go back and show a little love to some of my old bundles. Some of these old designs I really love, but the bundles are missing a few pieces that make them really useful, at least to me. So I've been spending a little time giving some of my favorites a little upgrade. I thought I'd start with this Birds in Snow bundle since it's the right season.
