Photos from a Lovely Spring Day

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 04/03/2014 - 10:11

I think after a lot of messing around, I've finally settled on a system for getting my photos edited and uploaded. For a while I had a system that worked well for me, then I made the switch to Lightroom, was just starting to figure that out and I got my smart phone, and then got completely lost on how to manage camera photos, phone photos, plus random stuff like Instagram. I think it's finally all starting to come together.

I'll make a post about my processing system soon, but for now I'm just going to share the fruits of my labors from yesterday. Here are some snapshots from the month of March.


Some ticket to ride fun.

The following are all from a ridiculous afternoon in Salem at the peak of the cherry blossoms.

New Kits: Random Fun 2!

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 03/31/2014 - 10:18

Update on my previous creative block: I have done a completely 360 and am now drowning in inspiration. I have so many ideas about so many things that I'm almost wishing for the creative block to come back, but not really. I'm working on a Mexico Bundle and it's exploding. It will be quite large. And bright. And full of glitter. Prepare yourselves.

This week I have some random fun for you!

A Happy Challenge

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 03/25/2014 - 09:36

I started to see this hashtag pop up on Instagram yesterday, so I did a little searching to figure out what it was. It sounded like it would be wonderful, and I think it is!


The hashtag originates with this challenge to document for 100 days something that makes you happy. As scrapbookers we're already committed to capturing and saving daily moments, but I know for me it's sometimes tricky to figure out what to capture in the day to day when things seem so mundane and the same! A little outside encouragement and challenge is always appreciated and I'm looking forward to joining this internet sensation.

I'll be sharing my photos on instagram, and I'd love to follow along with you! So leave a comment below if I can find you on Instagram too.


New Bundle: Coastal

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 03/24/2014 - 09:56

We just had the sunniest and most wonderful weekend. On Saturday we drove to Salem, the state capitol to enjoy some tremendous cherry blossoms. We didn't even know the blossoms were going to be there, so it was really a happy coincidence that we went right when they were in full bloom. Needless to say I have a lot of scrapping ahead of me because I am not capable of taking less than 100 photos when I see cherry blossoms.

Lovely afternoon in Salem #springishere

In other news my second ocean bundle is finally available. Enjoy the muted colors while you can! The creative team has some wonderful inspiration for you.
