Layout – Silly Hats

I managed to eek out another layout this week…working in bits of time between dinner prep and soccer pickup and finishing up in the morning after everyone left for school.  I am really fortunate to have a “room of my own” where I can leave a layout or project out on my worktable and let things percolate for awhile… or until my Studio Assistant knocks things onto the ground.

This layout was for a class at BPC called Stashbusters Anonymous and week 1 was layouts to help use up your paper stash.  I’m writing up a post now on de-stashing but wanted to share one of the layouts I did featuring chevrons … 1/2″ strips across the whole page…then I realized that my base paper was 12×13 not 12×12…needless to say there will be some trimming of the left side going on but that’s OK, it will only reinforce the asymmetry of the page.

And while I will take a formal portrait of the page when it’s all trimmed and adhered to a piece of card stock (the edges are curling up right now) I really kind of like messy slice of life photos that show some studio details too.

Enjoy and here’s to a beautiful spring weekend ahead and a joyous Easter  tomorrow!  What projects are you working on over the weekend?

{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.  If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.


layout – 9 Things about 9 Walter

Yes, I’ve been doing more memory keeping.  I have notebooks full of ideas and stacks of supplies that I am committed to using up!  I was reading Ali Edwards blog last week and she had made a layout detailing the things she loved about her home (instead of always thinking about what could be better….Of which I am completely guilty!!!)  I decided to take her challenge and use a hand drawn grid, write out 5+things about my home and making a layout w no photos… Celebrating what we love about this house was definitely in order (2 1/2 yrs later!)  AND I found the perfect use for this darling October Afternoon paper I have been hoarding for years!  I love how it came out!!

Details… so much fun digging around my stash for goodies to fill up the grid!

layout – Winter Share

Today’s layout is a digi-layout (I’m toggling back and forth between digi and paper lately…have a lot of supplies in each format to work through!)  I’m featuring Little Feet Digital Designs April Freebie  “Earth Day” created for the PixelScrapper blog hop.  This beautiful mini-kit is available FREE from LFDD only through April 31 so get it while it’s hot, and there, and well…free.  Click HERE for the link to LFDD blog.  Of course, me being me I did not scrap with an “Earth Day” theme…I decided to showcase the photo I took when I brought home our December Share  from Co-op, the last one for the season.  Little miss you-know-who of course, has to inspect everything.
