Books That Inspire Me

Standard

What inspires you? Books have always been a huge source of inspiration for me. Tell me a book you think needs to be on my list. —————

Abe & Dinah

Standard

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.

Life Right Now

Standard

It’s easy to scrapbook older photos and events when I create my page layouts. Now and then I am challenged to create a page that’s more of a “slice of life” moment describing things in real time. This is one of those pages that focuses, specifically, on where I am in life right now.
