MAKE IT SIMPLE

I've been scrapbooking since 2008 and still love it. Simple pages make me happy. I make mostly digital pages but dabble in a bit of everything.

I've been thinking a lot about my scrapbook albums.

Should I make them chronological or theme based? Should I stick with one size or mix it up? Should I even worry about it? 

Are albums just somewhere to store our pages or do I want them to be something more? And wh...

Hello December! So excited to be doing December Daily again - my 12th time. It has become just as important to me as all of my other Christmas traditions.

This year I am simplifying this project way down and making a little 4x4 handmade album (here is a post about my pl...

December Daily is really a labour of love. Making 25 or more pages for one project is a lot and sometimes there's just not much happening in your day to document. (If you're new to the concept, December Daily was created by Ali Edwards and you can learn more HERE).

Around this time of year (before December hits) I like to take stock and look at what's working and what's not for me and memory keeping. 

I've enjoyed scrapbooking in 5x8 and making my Blurb books (book one is HERE) but I think I need a change. No matter how much...

I have enjoyed adding pages to my new reading log (HERE) so I thought I would also make one for documenting TV and movies.

Again, I've made a simple template for each and will just repeat it throughout the notebook. I print my Travelers' Notebook pages on Epson Presenta...

My goal was to finish this little music project (HERE) by October so I could move onto other things. So I spent a few days at the end of September and got the pages finished, uploaded to Chatbooks and all sent off on a Saturday night with a few days to spare.
