Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

It’s hard to believe its March. Time has been painfully slow but also incredibly fast. These days I am really trying to create every day. I’ve had to be very intentional with my time , often just squeezing in 15 minutes here or there throughout the day. Today’s project took over a week to finalize. I couldn’t find the right balance with any of these three layouts. I would leave them out on my desk hoping for something to jump out at me. Finally, I came across a navy blue piece of paper from Paige Evans Bugalow Lane collection in my stash. This piece of paper helped finish all three of these layouts. Sometimes just thumbing through your stash can spark some creativity. How fun are filters sometimes? This particular filter was supposed to create how you look as a Disney character. It happened to be prior to my baby girl’s eye surgery and this filter made her look so funny and cute. Yes, her eyes were a little wonky but that was my sweet pea at that time especially when her glasses were wrapped around her neck. I knew I wanted to include these photos in my albums. I am so glad I got this one off my list. Check! Let’s call the next two layouts “spinoffs”. It just so happened that the two unfinished layouts remained on my desk but when I added the scraps to them, I felt I could call them done. Just like that, I could plop these three layouts in my albums. It may have taken a week but lately it’s all about the process and self-care for me.

Try flipping through your stash if you have hit a wall. Maybe you’d find a navy blue piece of paper!

Until next month,

  1. Cathy! LOVE your layouts, hearing about your process and creative self care. I am not a fast scrapbooker, more times than not, my projects sit on my desk for days/weeks until the perfect ‘je ne said quoi” finds it way my project! Glad I’m not the only one! Disney filtered photos are so perfect!
