Hit Refresh

Hello! Happy Sunday!

Normally, I might have a new layout to share today, but this month, I haven’t felt much like scrapping. I guess it’s good to take a break now & then to refresh. I have a stack of photos to scrap, I just need the willpower to do something with them at this point.  🙂

In the meantime, I’ve just been playing in my planners. It’s all the creative fun I’ve needed lately. I love planning out spreads and filling in details everyday in my Happy Planner. I can spend 10-20 minutes each day planning out my day or even play catch up at night with what I did during the day. Recently, Heidi Swapp said planning is like capturing life in real time. It’s true! It’s not stressful to me to do this daily. And, it’s a great daily habit in the dog days of summer!

Have a great week!

Scrapbook Layout | Sisters

Hello!! Happy Sunday!

Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite new layouts I’ve made this year. When I got the papers from Felicity Jane’s June kit, I thought of some old black & white photos that might work with it, particularly the floral paper. Then, I found this photo of my grandma & her sister, and it clicked! I love the photo, and how it works so well with the papers I put together. I like to think if they would have scrapped this picture when it was taken in the 40’s, it might have turned out something like this.  🙂

Scrapbook Layout | Another Flower

Hello! Happy Sunday! It’s scorching hot here this weekend? The best way I’ve found to cool off is to scrap and work on my planners! Fun, and cool.

I wanted to share a recent layout today. I love this black & white photo I have from the garden this summer, and I paired it with beautiful grey polka dot & mint paper from Heidi Swapp,  and pieces from a Felicity Jane kit. I tore my paper, which is something I used to do a lot, and then stopped. But, when I do it every now & then, I remember how much I love it! The quote I used I found on Pinterest. I thought it fit with the photo and where I am in life in general. This is one of my new favorites!  🙂

Thanks for stopping by! Stay cool.

Scrapbook Layout | June’s Promise

Hello!! Happy Sunday! It’s quite a lovely summer day here, with a nice cool breeze flowing.

Today I wanted to share a new layout. This rose bush in the backyard always starts blooming early in June, and is almost 40 years old! It never fails to impress, and also is a sweet reminder that love never fails…

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!

Scrapbook Layout | Be Yourself

Hello! Happy Sunday!

I wanted to share a new layout I made a couple days ago. I took some photos and selfies outside last week near sunset, and I got some good ones! Since this is a black and white photo, I felt free to add a lot of color and pattern to this page. I used some older Crate Paper floral paper, My Mind’s Eye embellishments (I am obsessed!), some Heidi Swapp gold glitter washi tape, and some doilies to top it off. I really like looking at this page because I love how everything came together!

Have a happy rest of the day– and Go Cavs!!!

Scrapbook Layout | Spring

Hello!! Happy Sunday morning!

Today, I wanted to share a bright and happy spring layout. I put these patterned papers together awhile ago…and finally I found a picture to go with them! Orange and blue have really been inspiring me lately. I guess I love the balance of cool and warm they give… and they are just happy colors! p.s. The flowers in the photo aren’t real, but they kinda look real, don’t they?  🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Layout | #plannergoals

Hello! Happy snowy Sunday to you! The hope is that spring makes its comeback this week. We’ll see…

I made a whole bunch of layouts yesterday! I needed a creative day! Today, I wanted to share a new layout about my planner obsession. I love searching through hashtags on Instagram, and one of my faves is #plannergoals. It inspired me to get all my planners together and take a photo. I love my planner shelf!  🙂

Scrapbook Layout | Sunshine

Hello! Well, it’s spring…but we got 2 inches of snow last night. I don’t like this April Fool’s joke. Let’s get back to springtime, ok?! The flowers and trees have started to wake up, so enough with winter.

This layout is all about springtime joy. I love this photo of Jake. She’s my happy, sunshine girl.  🙂   It’s easy to forget about little embellishments in your stash, don’t you think? I busted out some almost forgotten about embellies for this page. The Pink Paislee papers here are some of my favorites too.

Scrapbook Sunday | Queen Protea

Hello! Happy Sunday…and the first day of daylight savings time. It’s a struggle to lose an hour of sleep, but it’s sooo nice to have an extra hour of daylight!

Today, I wanted to share a new layout. this layout was inspired by Wilna Furstenberg’s new adventure collection. I don’t ever remember seeing a Queen Protea flower until last year when I bought my mom some flowers for her birthday. They are so unique looking! When I saw these protea printables, I had to make a layout! And, of course, I added some little wooden birds to complete the page.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
