Happy Thoughts | 6x8 Pocket Page Spread featuring Positive Vibes by Paislee Press

Happy Monday friends!  While I may not have started working on my 2017 Annual Pocket Page Album, I have created a few spreads in my 6x8 personal album.  I really love this size, it's just so fun to work with and I don't feel like I need a large group of photos or stories to work with.  

Recently, Liz over Paislee Press released the cutest edition of digital designs called Positive Vibes. I fell in love the with color palette first and then with the phrases the kit offers.  You've got to go check out!

Oh, and if you're interested in learning more about my personal album, stay tuned because in April of 2017 I'll be teaching a class over at Big Picture Classes all about documenting YOURSELF with some really awesome prompts and tips.  (check out my other BPC Class here)

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?

 

6x8 Pocket Page Layouts and Insert featuring the new Bright Ideas collection by Paislee Press

Hi everyone! For those of you who have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I usually post my memory keeping projects on Monday as part of what I call Memory Keeping Mondays.   I would like to formally invite you all to participate with me and share your projects each Monday morning on social media under #memorykeepingmondays.  I share mostly on Instagram and would love for you to follow me there and tag me in a comment on any of your #memorykeepingmonday posts. I'd love to see them!

Today I'm sharing a recent 6x8 layout I created for the Paislee Press CT using Liz's new Bright Ideas collection. This collection was part of the BYOC (Build Your Own Collaboration) release earlier this month.

There are several "crafty" elements in this collection that spoke to my creativity so I thought it would be fun to document my new journey with Liz's CT.  I added these pages into my personal 6x8 album, which I have yet to name, where I am documenting my last year in my twenties.  You can read more about that project here and here.

As always, I kept embellishments to a minimum for this spread, but I did create two small confetti pockets for my "insert", where I chose a 4x4 WRMK page protector and punched new holes for it to fit in my 6x8 binder.  I really love how these pages turned out and I hope you enjoy them also.

Welcome back for another #PocketPageThursday!

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.

I am excited to be sharing my first Paislee Press Creative Team project with you all today!  I am so excited to be working on this team. I've been a long time admirer of Liz's, from way back when I was doing photography and needed album templates.  She has such a lovely, minimal style and her designs really are the icing on the cake!

Recently, via Instagram, I won a month long subscription to #30daysoflists from Meg (@summonyourspark). I've never done this before, but if you remember, I LOVE LISTS so I was pretty excited about this opportunity.

As I mentioned last week, I've begun a small 6x8 album to document my last year in my twenties and thought some of these lists would be the perfect way to document some things about myself this year.

When Liz released the Let's Talk About collection at Paislee Press, I was head over heels in love. It was the PERFECT addition to my lists and this page came together in a matter of ten minutes. Now that's what I'm talking about friends!  I'm excited to implement some more of these lists into this album in the next few weeks and I do hope to share the rest of them here.
