Watch Me Digital Scrapbook: Week 2&3 2019

By Marisa Lerin Sat, 04/20/2019 - 00:07

I have a new process video for you today decorating a pocket page layout.
In this video I chat about how much I love Elif and my new pocket card for this year with the date section.


For this spread I used the Just Because Digital Collection by Sahin Designs.
This is one of my favorite kits of Elif's and I love how this spread turned out!

Travelers Notebook Flip-Through

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 04/19/2019 - 01:18

Today I'm sharing a flip through of a finished travelers notebook. Every spread in this notebook was created using at least some part of a digital kit that I printed at home. I like to add in a few traditional scrapbooking embellishments, or some papers from my scrap bin, but I love being able to start from a digital kit.

Process Video #30: Birds in Snow

I'm sharing today a process video for a spread in my travelers notebook using the Birds in Snow Print Kit. It's fun to work on a holiday page in April, remembering those dark but cozy days. Plus I love that photo of Magnus meeting Santa for the first time.

New Today: The Good Life April 2019

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 04/15/2019 - 00:00

A new Good Life bundle is out today, nice and bright and ready for spring! And April marks a one year anniversary of the Good Life project. There are now over a year of Good Life collections out there, and I'm unlikely to stop anytime in the near future.

Process Video #29: Junk Journal

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 04/12/2019 - 00:00

I have a process video for you in my junk journal today. This is a quick little spread because as I was nearing the end of this journal it was getting too full to take too much excitement. But I did my best. One thing I like to do when I realize there are too many pages in my journal (which is true of every one that I make) is stick two pages together and make a pocket. Then of course I have to come up with something to put in the pocket! I'm very fancy in this video and use my fuse tool to add sequins to a plastic pocket. Hope you enjoy!

New Today: Layout Templates #43

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 04/08/2019 - 00:00

I have some new layout templates for you today! I talked a little on Friday about how my hybrid process was informing my digital products, and one of the big ways I've see this come true is in my layout templates. I love the messy and super layered look when I make with my hybrid and paper layouts, so lately I've been trying different techniques to bring this look to my layout templates.

Process Video #28: Travelers Notebook

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 04/05/2019 - 01:00

Today I'm sharing a process video for a spread I made in my travelers notebook using the recently released Desert Spring Print Kit. I've really been enjoying using the print kits in my travelers notebook and I think it's also helped inspire my design process as well. Thinking of things I'd like to use in my hybrid notebook has obviously affected what I make specifically for the print kits, but has also given me new ideas for the digital side of things as well.
