Introducing Autumn Vibes by Paislee Press | 9x12 Digital Pocket Scrapbook Page

Glorious fall has arrived!

Hi friends, if you're like me and fortunate enough to live somewhere where the leaves change each fall, then you're going to love this new collection from Paislee Press, called Autumn Vibes.  This collection features templates, elements and journal cards

The rich colors, autumn themed elements (including football!) and crisp clean design has me totally in love. It was perfect for some snapshots my husband and I took over the weekend.

Introducing Live a Little by One Little Bird | 9x12 Digital Pocket Page Scrapbook Layout

At the beginning of each month, I'm always awed and inspired by the newest collection Peppermint Granberg releases for the One Little Bird store.  This month, the Live a Little collection is bright, summery and has floral elements that I couldn't resist!  I'm so excited to share a digital 9x12 pocket page I created with the set.  You can find it here.

Hi guys! Just popping to share a quick project I made for the One Little Bird creative team this month.  I'm pretty obsessed with making these folded pages that slide into a mini album binder I keep on my shelf.  I created this entire page in Photoshop Elements and printed the outside first, then the inside. After that I used my Cricut machine's Print Then Cut feature to print out my embellishments and have the machine made the cuts.  It's perfectly precise every time and saves me a ton of time from fussy cutting! 

Next, I layered on my photo and elements and simply adhered everything down. I love how cute it turned out, don't you?

 

I used the following products from the One Little Bird shop:  Rise and Shine, Postscript and Sugarcoated. The wood veneer is from Elle's Studio, the xoxo paper is from Felicity Jane and the text template is from Paislee Press.

Introducing Summer Vibes by Paislee Press | Traveler's Notebook Insert for a Mini Album - Hybrid Scrapbooking Style

I had this crazy need to feel some paper between my fingertips after all these digital layouts I've been working on lately.  The new Summer Vibes collection from Paislee Press provided the perfect opportunity for me to create this fun, traveler's notebook style insert for my mini album.  I simply created the page in Photoshop Elements, printed, it, folded it in half and embellished.  My next step is just to punch holes along the fold and I can snap it into my mini album. Easy peasy, right?!

DIY Baby Onesie Using a Cricut Explore Air 2, Stencil Vinyl, Fabric Paint and New Designs by Paislee Press

Hi friends, I'm so excited to be sharing this super fun, different sort of project... Many of you already know that my husband and I are adopting a child.  As a result, I've been in nesting mode lately, gathering and making things for a baby. Since we don't know yet whether we will be having a boy or a girl, I've been collecting gender neutral items.  

Note: Some of the following links are affiliate links, which means I receive a commission based on sales generated via these links.

When Liz over at Paislee Press released the Scenic Route collection, I was immediately enamored with it.  I'm so excited to use it in my pocket page scrapbook and digital scrapbook pages, but first, I just had to use it to make some baby onesies!

With a little text advice from my sweet friend Emily (Desk of Confetti), I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine to kiss cut Liz's designs out on stencil vinyl.  The vinyl is adhesive so after weeding the design on the cutting mat, I peeled the backing off the stencil, adhered it to a pre-washed onesie and slid a piece of chipboard between the layers of the onesie.  Next, I used a foam brush to apply black fabric paint.  I allowed the onesies to dry for 24 hours, then carefully peeled the stencil vinyl away.  Next, I used a pressing cloth and iron set the paint on the onesie.  

I just love how cute these are and know I'll be making more soon!

Digital Scrapbook Pages | Gallery of Recent Layouts feat. Paislee Press and Kellie Stamps

When life gets busy, there's nothing more simple than creating a digital scrapbook page to document memories.  Since I've been focusing this year on other things, I've not had as much time to make paper pages, however, I have found time to create digitally.  This works so much better for me at this point in life because I can easily carve out 30 mins or so once a week to knock out a page or two.  

I wanted to share some of my recent pages with you because several of them include new, fun designs from some of our favorite designers!

 

This layout features the Happy Birthday set, elements from Meant to Be and For Like Ever by Paislee Press.

What's the craziest thing you've ever documented?  My mom encouraged me to save our first grocery receipt after my husband and I got married. I loved creating this digital scrapbook page with a scanned copy of the receipt - preserved forever! This fun page uses the Good Food digital stamp set from Kellie Stamps.

This set of digital pages was super fun to make! I love the pops of color that the circles create. I paired them with a more simple page on the left side to balance the spread.  In these pages, I used Paislee Press elements from Year One, Eternal Sunshine, High Five and Pictures and Words No. 19. 


I love a digital 9x12 pocket page! The look is so clean and refreshing! In this layout, I'm using the Weekend Vibes collection from Paislee Press.
