Congratulations from the bottom of my heart! With a red coffee cup in hand, I set out to take on the world. “Well. Hello December.” I’ve been obsessed with the new Hello December Project Life © by Stampin’ Up! card and accessory kit. I cannot wait to start documenting this merry month using these kits inside a 6×8” cherry cobbler album. I am showing the cover today and will gradually show bits and pieces of the rest of the month.

On this album cover, I heat embossed the snowflakes using the Project Life © December Wonder stamp…

Hello all!  It’s the start of another month and the countdown is on to the holidays! Today, I’m sharing the December sketch for our Sketchy Challenge!  Have you checked out our gallery yet?  Lots of inspiration to be found, both in sketches AND our readers’ designs!  You can view it HERE without signing up, but to upload your designs and to comment, you will need to register and log in.  It’s easy – most of the information can be found in our Before You Begin and FAQs links on the left side of the page. Here’s the December sketch: So,… (*looks around, furtively*)… do you want to know a little secret?? 🙂  Usually, the monthly sketch comes from a sketchbook of ideas that I’ve created at random, but sometimes, just sometimes, the sketch is inspired by a layout that I’ve created on a whim! That was the case in this month’s…

Here we are the last Friday of November. Has anyone else had enough of winter? My world is blanketed in white snow and I am confident it will be here for a long time! Time to put on my brave face and accept the challenge of winter in Alberta! Today I take you to Calgary for a peek into Allison Rombough creative space. Allison recently got married in August of this year. She and her husband live in a 2 bedroom condo that they share with a special needs adult. Allison has been a “Supportive Roommate” for twelve years and gave up her second bedroom so her client could move in with them. Her roommate keeps her company while her husband goes to school in Winnipeg to get his PHD. That meant she needed to get creative with carving out a scrapbooking space for her needs. She has done…

Today on our blog, we welcome Marcy Penner, who is sharing her scrapbooking process with Project Life. Hi everyone. I’m honoured to be sharing one of my Project Life spreads with you all today. This is my fourth year using pocket pages in my scrapbooking, and I’m still loving it. It’s a little bit of a visual diary and encompasses all kinds of little details and memorabilia that don’t make it onto my regular layouts. This year I tackled a 9×12” size and snuck a 6×8” Handbook size in during the summer months. I’m excited to carry on with this project next year as well. I’ll be detailing my approach for 2015 on my blog in the near future so I’d love it if you’d stop by! Note: I created a 9×12” album by trimming down an American Crafts 12×12 album and by trimming off the last three inches of…
