Every season has a story Back to routine.  Back to photo management.  Every month I go through my photos and hit “delete”. Typically, this does happen every month but not this summer.  While trying to catch up, I ran across these photos from a last minute trip to Cape Spear, Newfoundland – only a twenty minute drive from my home. This story needed to be told right now. I jumped off the couch and got every rolling. In fact, I had already documented this story on a blog post.  All I had to do now was put the layout together. This time I started with the story.  I copy and pasted the story from the blog post onto an 8.5×11” canvas in Photoshop.  I hit print. I printed the photos with a border using my Canon Selphy printer knowing which photos I wanted where.  Note that the two vertical ones…

I was hot. I was sweaty. It was time to go in the cool basement where my craft room resides. I was uninspired. But anxious to document a story. I have been doing a lot of wedding projects lately and I haven’t been keeping up with my memory keeping.  “This is okay,” I tell myself. I hauled out a 12×12 piece of paper. I slapped some pictures on the page but didn’t feel the rush of creativity running through my veins. I was too lazy to take out a device to browse Pinterest. In fact, it’s more likely that I my bottom was stuck to the chair. We don’t have air conditioning. Blah. Blah. Baa humbug. But I started to flip through the All Year Long Project Life™ accessory kit by Stampin’ Up! Then, I found “the item.”  A silver foiled card, which was saying exactly what I wanted to…

Are you feeling merry today? Well, it’s November now and you might as well get used to the Christmas jingles and décor every way you look. For me, the Christmas season doesn’t start until a certain coffee shop releases their holiday cups… That’s right. I get giddy inside and I instantly want to hoard keep my first empty cup in order to scrapbook it later. I am immediately ready to tackle the season head on while I fill up my planner with parties and traditions. It’s pretty much the most exciting time of the year! Isn’t that right? Fa La La La La! You should be singing Fa La La La La, if you noticed how the branches of the tree were raised in the photo above. That’s right, its an amazing framelit from Stampin’ Up! that coordinates with the Peaceful Pines stamp set. Quite easy and quite amazing. Christmas…

  It’s the unofficial end of summer, and it makes me sad. But I can look back at the summer and say that we banged off a big number of items on my summer bucket list. This is the first year that I took time out to create a “summer things to do” list. Yes, yes, I am a Type A personality. Believe me when I say it worked great. I am a planner girl, and when I noticed a weekend with few commitments, I looked at my list and made it happen. I also booked reservations in advance. You’ll notice they aren’t physically crossed off my list. That’s because this planner goes into next year hence I am keeping the same list for Summer 2016. With all the activities we did during the summer, I thought it would be nice to have a little album with some pictures to…
