Springtime 6x8 Hybrid Pocket Pages | Featuring Hanami by Little Lamm & Co.

Oh Thursday, you have me all like, loving the spring time blooms! Did you catch yesterday's photo journal post of the beautiful cherry blossoms in my yard?

I'm playing along with #PocketPageThursday, a blog series by Jessica Upton of Color Cast Designs and Kellie Winnell of Kellie Stamps and Give a Girl a Blog. To find out more information, visit Jessica's blog post here.

Today, I'm here to share a 6x8 hybrid pocket page layout I created for "my" mini album.  I really wish I could decide what to call this album.  Basically, it is a mini album I'm putting together just to celebrate and document things about myself as I go through this last year in my twenties. I talked more about it here and here

While, I usually scrapbook chronologically, this layout was brought into my little mini album as a special "flashback" layout. I used photos from 2010 of my sweet little sister (who's now the same age I was in these photos! Eep, time flies!) and I.  These are some of my FAVORITE photos of her and I from that year...  And one of the last impromptu photo shoots we had together before she began working full time and I got married.  So anyway, I documented on an insert (not pictured) the memory of this shoot and the bond we shared, in addition to how times have changed for her and I as sisters.  I used the beautiful, brand new journal card and element collection, Hanami from Little Lamm & Co.  This collection is soooooooo gorgeous and just PERFECT for these photos.

I would LOVE to know your thoughts on my personal little mini album... Have you done something like this?  If so, what are some things you've included in your album?

 

Recent Digital and Physical Layouts featuring designs by Little Lamm & Co.

Hi guys! Following this week's post using some designs from Little Lamm & Co., I thought it would be fun to share a round up of a few more recent layouts I've created using more of Amie's awesome designs for the creative team. 

One thing I have to point out is how much I LOVE the Little Lamm & Co templates.  Especially for my 6x8 pages.  If you're in the market for some templates that will help simplify your digital process, please take a moment to browse Amie's store!

Below I've shared a combination of both digital and physical layouts. Enjoy!

Anthology by Little Lamm & Co.

I love this collection because of the navy blue! It is one of my favorite colors to work with and so hard to come by in digital collections.  This is by far one of my most beloved Little Lamm & Co. collections. I love its versatility and bold colors.



Forever by Little Lamm & Co.

This soft, beautiful collection is simply darling. There are so many elements that I really love in it and I can't wait to use it again and again!

I can never say enough about the Little Lamm & Co. templates! They make every page I create that much easier to put together. This two page spread took me under ten minutes!


Hush by Little Lamm & Co.

When Amie released this collection, I was surprised to see how many different designs and elements were available for this kit! She has specialized both a boy and girl kit with tons of gender neutral designs too!

 

I'd love to hear from you... what is your favorite Little Lamm & Co. collection?

12x12 Hybrid Pocket Pages featuring Little Lamm & Co. "Blink" | Memory Keeping Monday

I've mentioned in the past that one of my long term goals is to scrapbook images from years and years ago.  With Project Life style system of pocket pages, I find this task easier and easier.  Occasionally, via one of my creative teams or while I'm browsing one of my favorite journal card designers, I see a kit that jumps out as a perfect match for photos I have stored in picture boxes.  That's what happened with the "Blink" collection from Little Lamm & Co.  The soft, sweet colors and sentiments were so beautiful, I immediately knew I wanted to pair them with these photos of my niece from six years ago!  The beautiful pink colors are my absolute favorite part of this kit and I'm not really even a "pink" girl!

As you can see, I kept the embellishments minimal for this two page 12x12 spread.  I used a white bow and mini flair piece from one of last year's Felicity Jane kits in addition to a simple wood veneer embellishment I found in my stash.  I absolutely LOVE these pages and how everything ties together and tells a simple, happy story with photos.

Using Digital Scrapbooking Products for Instant Home Decor | Valentine's Day DIY Craft Idea

Hi friends! Today I wanted to share a quick idea I had after a recent phone conversation with my best friend in Florida. She had mentioned that she and her kids had decorated their house for Valentine's Day already and it got me to thinking that I don't even own any Valentine's decorations. 

So instead of going out and buying some, I repurposed a 5x7 photo frame into a cute little display for our kitchen counter, using a card and digital paper from the L'amore collection by Little Lamm & Co.  I simply printed out the digital paper on a 5x7 card, printed the smaller 3x4 journal card, trimmed them both up, and adhered them with some washi tape. Then I topped it off with a simple, gold-foil arrow and viola! Instant, inexpensive home decor. I love it!

What do you think?  What fun ways have you used digital scrapbooking elements around your home? I'd love to hear about them!

6x8 Digital Pocket Page Scrapbook Layouts feat. L'amore and Templates by Little Lamm & Co. | Memory Keeping Monday

Hi friends! Today I'm here to share another Memory Keeping Monday post using the newly released L'amore collection by Little Lamm & Co. 

This cute collection is perfect for this time of year as we look forward to Valentine's Day.  Around here, we celebrate Valentine's but keep it pretty low key so we don't get too caught up in the commercialism of the day.  Usually, we have homemade gifts like this and delicious home baked foods, like this.

As I dug around in my archives, I found photos of our first Valentine's Day together five years ago. It was a day that happened to fall after we'd gotten engaged and while we were saving for our upcoming wedding, so rather than us going out and spending money, my sweet Mom made us dinner and a cheesecake at home!

The second layout I created below is using much more current photos, from a couple of weeks ago.   I just HAD to delve into Little Lamm & Co's new templates as well. These fun templates make it SO easy to create digital layouts in minutes via Photoshop Elements. I just love them and used some digital paper from the "L'amore" collection.

Check back with me on Wednesday for a crafty idea I had using these digital scrapbooking products in a home decor project! I can't wait to share it with you!

6x8 Digital Pocket Page Scrapbook Layouts feat. Woodland by Little Lamm & Co. | Memory Keeping Monday

Mondays have quickly become my favorite day, thanks to Memory Keeping Monday.  I look forward to spending some time here at the beginning of each week, sharing some of my recent layouts and I hope, inspiring you, as you begin your week.

Perhaps it is the several inches of snow we had the last couple of days, or maybe it is just that I LOVE this collection, but either way, I'm excited to share the Woodland collection from Little Lamm & Co. with you today!

I created the following 6x8 digital pocket page spreads on my laptop using Photoshop Elements and templates from Little Lamm & Co, available here.

This collection is one of my recent favorites from Amie, even though I really love most of what she creates! Everything, from the winter feel to the adorable little birds, captured my attention. The first layouts pictured are using photos from 2010 that I never printed, but nonetheless, are special memories to me.  I can't believe how young we looked, ah such babes!   I enjoyed creating two correlating layouts above and then coming back at a later time to create a digital-layout-in-minutes as I wrap up my end of the year spreads for 2015.  That is how much I LOVE this collection!

2015 December Daily® Days 14 - 25 | A Holiday Memory Keeping Project

Earlier this week, I shared this photo on Instagram and asked if I should share the rest of my 2015 December Daily. The response was pretty clear that several of you wanted to see the rest of the album, even though it is after Christmas and many of you are probably feeling "over the holidays"!

So this will be my last share on this album... I was able to finish everything up with a little planning and a couple of free hours one evening.  While my album wasn't exactly as cohesive in color as I would have liked, I'm happy it's done and I can move on. Done is better than perfect.  To make my photos match up with the colors I had been using, I could have turned them black and white, but I feel like that might have stolen some of the character of them.

At the bottom of the post, I've linked up some of the products I've used. Enjoy!

Day Five:

Recently, we took advantage of a weekend off and visited the Blue Ridge Parkway to catch the autumn leaves dressed in their fall best.  I love peak season around here - it's simply amazing as the colors are so vibrant and bright. This is something I never got to enjoy growing up in Florida so I especially love this season and transition time. I created these 6x8 digital spreads in about 30 minutes one evening using the Maplewood collection in addition to some elements from the Crisp collection, both by Little Lamm & Co.
