Aloha in your heart

Standard

Today marks 29 years since my sweetheart asked me to marry him. It inspired me to create another digital page from our vow renewal ceremony. This time I played with some mosaic techniques using Artisan 6 software. The words are a Hawaiian Wedding Blessing that we learned during our ceremony. I am very pleased with how the page turned out!

A Day at Epcot – Scrapbook Album

Standard

Spent this weekend participating in a virtual scrapbooking retreat. My friends and I were on zoom from our craft rooms. So happy that I completed an entire album. It was my MIL first trip to Disney. So glad we were able to go last year!

Vow Renewal

Standard

I was playing around with textured shapes and was inspired to create this digital page about our vow renewal in Maui in 2018. After the crazy year we’ve had, I am dreaming of a return trip ❤️

Wait … We Have To MATCH??

Standard

I had always wanted to have a beach photo shoot so when we booked our family vacation to Hilton Head Island in 2012 I set up a session with a local photographer. My family members don’t love being photographed to begin with, but when I told them I wanted us to MATCH I was met with 10 rolling eyes! Regardless, they sucked it up and dressed in matching attire. They all admitted afterwards that the photos came out great!

100% Fun

Standard

Vacations are always a good idea. Add great friends to the mix and you’ve made the trip even better! My husband and I are lucky to have another couple we love to travel with. Oh the places we want to go! Hopefully this year we can travel with them again! Layouts designed using Artisan 6 software.

Love is a four legged word

Standard

Chloe lost her Grandma just the other day and I know how hard this will be for her. My mother-in-law was an awesome lady. She was an amazing mom, grandma, and dog-grandma. When she first met Chloe she wasn’t much of a dog person. Chloe won her over pretty quickly and the two of them shared an incredible bond! She will be missed so much by all of us.

Abe & Dinah

Today I was challenged to create a heritage page. I decided to design a layout showcasing the only “formal” photo I have of my great grandparents who emigrated from Russia in the early 1900s. I am really happy with how the page turned out and may continue designing more heritage pages in the near future! 

Created using Artisan6 software. (Feel free to message me if you’d like to learn more about digital scrapbooking!)

Sunday Brunch

Standard

When asked to scrap about something mundane that I do, feeding the family came to mind — specifically, Sunday breakfast. Most of the time my family doesn’t eat breakfast together – we all grab something: an egg, a cup of coffee, some cereal, or maybe just a banana. On weekends, for as long as I can remember, we’ve gone out for Sunday brunch. Covid-19 changed that and we were stuck home eating anything that was easy to grab like any other day of the week.  At some point I “flipped the switch” and decided to be more grateful for my wonderful kitchen and the fact that I had my entire family with me.  I thought about ways I could make Sunday brunch enjoyable again. I just needed to change my mindset.  Now waking up early and baking the family a nice brunch has become something I really enjoy and look forward to as much as they enjoy eating it. 

For the technique I used basic colored cardstock and added some textures to it.
