Blog Tour

I was recently tagged in this creative blog tour. Jamie tagged me and I am excited to tag some of my creative friends in this post. 

1. What am I working on?
I am working on purging my craft room/office in preparation for a complete make over of the room. I have been reading and re-reading the newest IKEA catalog and day dreaming of the perfect storage system and desk set up.  
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I would say that my scrappy work focuses on everyday moments and doubles as a journal for some of my more challenging emotions.   
3. Why do I write/create what I do?
Cutting paper is therapeutic for me. I love to sit down to create and lose myself in the action of creating. I also love to preserve memories and capture the everyday in my albums.   
4. How does your creative process work? 
My creative process is usually sparked by a story that I want to tell or an emotion that I want to explore further. From there I will use kits like those from Scraptastic Kit Club to inspire my work further. Working from and kit keeps me focused on a limited amount of supplies and allows me to spend more time creating and less time digging for the perfect item!

Layout: First Round (Throwback Thursday!)

When flipping through my photos in order to find a story that needed to be told, I came across these photos that were taken the day Ryan asked me out for our first date. (There are no photos of Ryan- I’m not that creepy!) I love having this story at the beginning of our “Us” album. 

Football season begins soon and I am happy to say that we have season tickets in the same section of the stadium where we met.

Thanks for stopping by!

Layout: Play!

I started this layout months ago when I was taking the Art and Science class at Big Picture Classes. This was based on a sketch and I struggled with the sketch and amount of photos it called for. I printed the photos and cut the patterned paper to size, then filed the layout away to be completed later. 

I am happy with the outcome and I am glad to have finally finished this layout.

Layout: Sweet Naptime

My scrappy pals and I recently dug into our stashes and sent each other kits to scrap with. This was a fun swap because I love finding inspiration in supplies I might not have picked out for myself. 

I love watching this kid sleep. She finds her way into great positions and looks just sweet as pie.
