This month's gallery celebrated lists of ten. It's summertime and free time is at a premium. As we look for ways to streamline our pages and productivity, we realize that journaling is is a terrific place to do so. Let's look back through our gallery and make a list of lists we can make.
Scrapbook Saturday is here! Which means we are nearly two months through our summer schedule. Where does the time go?
Are you having a lovely summer? I hope you are. Our weather took a turn this week, becoming hot as lava with a side of loud thunderstorms. I love thunderstorms. Especially hot summer day storms. Love them. Do you?Or do they scare you? Have you another favorite thing about summer?
Speaking of favorite things, I hope that you are participating in our summer photo challenge series--taking favorite photos. It will be a fun surprise to put them all together!
Before the clouds gather in and the showers begin again, shall we look at our newest sketch, cut file, and color palette?
The Sketch AND The Cut File
Each month, Diane puts together a sketch for us, and Christine creates a cut file for us. This month, they put their skills together and came up with a wonderful collaboration! Here is the sketch that Diane made:
and here is Christine's cut file (notice how it looks a lot like the central star embellishment. Heehee!!)
Fun, no? Before we go further, the sketch comes from Christa's layout in our June Top Ten Lists gallery.
Now, let's look at the layouts that our team put together to help inspire you even more!
First, Sue substituted a photo for a lovely selection of patterns and switched out the center stars for lovely layered flowers.
I love the look of the photo corners. So perfect for a traditional page.The epoxy dots and flower centers are fantastic adds to make Sue's layout just a tiny bit more fancy!
AmyK is up next with a layout that kept the stars and the cut file, but turned the photos to their sides.
How about the patterned paper that looks like mowed baseball field? And the red arrowheads that look like the stitching on a baseball? Mmm. I also freeze with papers like this, not knowing how much to show and how much to cover. Amy's layout is inspiring and educational.
Diane moved one photo up and one photo down, then sprinkled a little journaling here, and a little journaling there.
With its primary colors, stitched vellum clouds, and the perfect (not to mention darling) flair to further her story, this layout is as iconic as its symbols. Look at how those photos!
Francine used 4 wallet sized photos in lieu of the two three by fives, then shuffled the other elements around to accommodate the change.
Putting her journaling on horizontal conversation bubbles, Francine's story unfolds bit by bit. Can you see Francine peeking through the vellum on the title bubble? Heehee!
I made my layout digitally, so I added an inner shadow to simulate Christine's cut file, but otherwise left the sketch intact.
I was so excited to leave the stars in place as they coordinated with the stars on the flag so well. (My son took these pictures for my niece--didn't he do a good job?)
LisaO's layout is the most different from the sketch. I love that she used repeating text lines as her central embellishment.
Doesn't Lisa look happy?? I love that she is in the photos. Reminds me to do the same, soon. In the words of someone very wise, "Yes, yes please."
When I saw AmyC's layout for the first time, I swooned. The white stitching, stars, and paint dots on that deep dyed blue paper paired with the variegated rainbow misting on the cut file, and well... what more can I say? Oh, the sketch--oh, yeah... I love how you can still see the sketch, despite the changes.
Lastly, we have a layout from Stephanie. She used the cut file as a mask, painting around it, on top of the mist she first put down. The texture that it creates is lovely, just as the title states.
I am so happy to get to see that sweet baby face more and more around here!
If you would like to play along with the sketch, or if you would like to play with the cut file, you may download the layered template here and the cut file here.
Sarah's daughter's photo is the prefect complement to the palette. Man, she is pretty. And the stripes of color in the cut out letters are lovely.
Sam put together a gorgeous layout.
Look at how she bled the watercolors down the page and puddling on the bottom. Did you see how carefully she painted across the top of the photo, too? The variations in the paint are so subtle and so gentle.
Celeste added a splash of yellow to the colors to make her layout.
I am amazed at how different the colors look with a cream background rather than the white. I do like how the thin stamp edge gives a softer look to all the colors. I will soon be making a sketch out of the horizontal high center on this layout. Celeste is so good with her balance.
Stephanie used an oversized (and unbelievably adorable) photo on her bluesy layout.
I am so happy that vellum is back in style as it makes such a lovely and helpful journaling overlay. When I saw this layout, I wondered to myself if this yummy little fellow had blue eyes. And when I read the journaling I got my answer! Oh, how this layout takes me back to years past. I must be getting old in my sentimental ways!
Lastly, mine. I picked each of the colors and found a paper to highlight it. And then added a water photo. Nothing else would have felt right with those colors!! Can you see the title? I promise it's there.
The crown jewel goes to Laura. She not only used the sketch, and the cut file, but also the color scheme.
What a fantastic accomplishment! Such tremendous inspiration. You know I'm going to have to do one now, too. I so love making layouts with parameters!
Thank you for spending your Saturday with me! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hi there ladies! I hope you are enjoying all the fabulous
posts here at write. click. scrapbook this summer. I love the dailies it’s always
a surprise each day to see what gets posted. I’m
going to interrupt all of this wonderful inspiration and bring you a giveaway!
Pixels & Co. is having a fabulous $1 kit sale right now
and I am happy to be able to give one reader a $5 gift certificate to the
store. You’ll be able to pick up five kits for just a dollar. The sale on the kits last until the end of July and by the end there will be almost 100 kits available!
I made this layout using only five of the dollar kits that
are available in the store. I’m loving the nautical theme that is all over the place right now. I have loads of beach and Cape Cod photos to scrap so the nautical theme is just perfect for that!
So head on over to
Pixels & Co. and take a look at the Dollar Kits. Let me know which one you
would just have to buy in the comments below. We’ll pull a lucky number tomorrow! In
the meantime, back to our regularly scheduled daily inspiration tomorrow!
When my kids were babies, I used to think that life would be much easier once they were older...no more diapers, less messes, and thus more time for fun things like scrapping. Oh, how mistaken I was! Nowadays, we have less time than ever between our homeschooling and their extra-curricular activities. It is even more true for us in the summer because we try to squeeze in extra fun things with their friends who are out of school for the summer on top of our regular schedule (we homeschool year-round).
The good news is, I've still been able to keep some kind of memory keeping alive even in the midst of our insanely busy schedule. This has been possible thanks in large part to digital scrapbooking. While I don't create many individual layouts these days, I have adopted the use of 2-up and 5-up albums to store my pictures and stories. I often scrap in "batches" meaning that I create templates for 4x6 mini-pages to which I add pictures at a later time. Templates are often re-used in a modified form or even as-is.
For example, I wanted to create an album to document our first full season at our trailer (we bought it last August). I have decided to use a 2-up album for this purpose and created a number of template pages using the Cosmo Cricket Campy kit:
I am keeping each of the 4x6 templates as a .PSD file with all the layers intact. This way, I can easily insert my picture (via a clipping mask) and type my journaling before saving the end product as a .JPEG file. If I have the time and inclination, I may make some modifications to the template but typically I just put the picture and journaling in and call it good enough!
The album will be a mixture of plain pictures and the mini-layouts. Once the summer is over, I will send all the files to Costco for printing and insert them into the album. Some day, I will be able to spend more time to create my beloved 12x12 layouts again but until then, I am quite happy with this simpler approach to memory keeping. The best part of it is that I'll be able to make multiple books to give to the grandparents!
This approach can also easily be adapted for hybrid or traditional paper scrapping. In fact, I am doing a hybrid album this way to document our trip to Asia. You may even see that album on WCS sometime in the future ;)
Have a happy summer everyone! We are off to spend the Canada Day weekend at the trailer!
This month's gallery was all about looking back at layouts and posts from this past year and finding inspiration to create something new. I love all the layotus created, and I loved reading about all the ways we drew inspitation from each other; For some it was the design of the layout; For others it was a technique to try; And still others found new events and moments to photograph. To help your creative process along, we have a sketch, a color combo, and a cut file, to help spark your next project. I hope you join in the fun, and if you do, be sureshare a link to some of your work!
This months sketch is based on my layout (*blush*):
Here's the sketch created by Diane:
You can download a layered template of the sketch here.
Marnie stayed pretty true to the sketch, as we all did. By converting all the photos to black and white, she unified the six photos visually, and they provide a lovely contrast to the bright embellishments.
LisaO kept the design pretty similar, but swapped some photos for patterned paper. The yellows on this page are so appealing-they just pop right out at ya! (Completely random fact: I used to dislike the color yellow, until I started scrapbooking. Now, I am one of yellow's biggest fans.)
It was an interesting exercise for my brain to make a layout based on my own layout. It felt a little like cheating to use the same design twice, but I cannot come up with any logical reason why it's not okay to reuse a design. Can you?
Here is this months color palette:
It is based on Celeste's layout:
Marnie used big doses of each color to create this sweet and joyous layout. Seriously, that puppy is so cute it hurts my heart a little bit.
Lisa O. used little bits of color on her white background. It's clean. It's simple. It's pretty.
I also used a white background, some bits of color, and pictures of my love, to document the fact that we need more pictures together. (Spoiler: I discovered this fact while working on my July gallery layout.) Since we just celebrated our 17th anniversary, this will be a goal for the coming year.
Neither Lisa nor I own a silhouette, but that did not deter us from using her file as inspiration. Lisa cut out white triangles the old fashioned way, and placed them on a white background, which was perfect for this wedding layout.
I simply printed out the image onto vellum, colored in some of the shapes, and used it as patterned paper in this layout.
There you have it, ladies and...well, probably more ladies. I hope this helps get you started on some summer scrapping. If so, we'd love to see what you create!
Hey there! I'm sure most of you have begun your summer by now. Here in the Northeast, we are still in school. A combination of Hurricane Sandy and a few big snowstorms left us not getting out of school until the 25th of June this year. It feels like this month is never going to end!
The kids are just itching to get started on summer adventures, but we are still plodding along with homework, sports, and music lessons. To get us in the mood, and perhaps spend a little time over the next weekend knocking something off the list. I sat down at dinner the other night and asked the boys and hubby for five items on their bucket lists for this summer. Surprisingly, our lists overlapped quite a bit. What was going to be a four photo layout with a list for each person quickly turned into a photoless page and a common list.
I'm a bit mojoless this month, so I went out searching for a digital template to start my page. Then it was a matter of adding a title, gathering some papers, and typing up my list.I think it turned out quite fun!
Super easy and my plan is to print it out and put it on the fridge. This will keep us motivated AND will add a little summery cheer to my kitchen! So what's on your bucket list for the summer? Tonight might be a great night to sit down and talk about it at the dinner table.
Hooray hooray hooray hooray hooray today is our birthday!
We love this time of year as we get to look back at the last 12 months and marvel at the changes, the fun, and the general awesomeness of our favorite site!! We hope that you have enjoyed the posts, the layouts, and the inspiration.
We are excited to get year five started! We are going to have a bit of a sentimental beginning with our
This month we are looking back at year four. Each of our designers picked a layout or post that they loved from this past year and used it to inspire a new layout. Let's take a look.
Mother’s Day 2013 | Aliza Deutsch
12 x 12 | materials patterned paper (Basic Grey, My Mind’s Eye) + buttons (My Mind’s Eye, Fancy Pants) + paper clips (Fancy Pants) + thickers (American Crafts) + labels (Evalicious, Basic Grey) + stickers (My Mind’s Eye) + ink (Versamark) + fonts (Times New Roman)
A Note from Aliza This layout was inspired by a recent Mother’s Day post by Marnie. She said that every Mother’s Day, she takes a picture with each of her children. I knew right away that I wanted to do that too, and I am madly in love with the results.
June Fun Fact I just bought a necklace that I love, but it’s really big and bold. I am working up the nerve to wear it to work.
Date Night | Christine Newman
12 x 12 | materials cardstock (American Crafts) + patterned paper (American Crafts Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, Studio Calico) + stamps (American Crafts) + ink (Memento) + pen (Sharpie) + punches (Fiskars, Marvy Uchida, McGill) + digital graphic (Ali Edwards) + digital die cutter (Silhouette America) + adhesives (Scotch, Glue Dots, Tombow) + stapler (Advantus) + font (Blackout)
A Note from Christine This layout was inspired by a post by Katie Ehmann during her Patterned Paper Week in November 2012. I wanted to create a layout using just papers to celebrate... well, paper! :)
June Fun Fact Todd and I always take Summer Solstice (6/20 or 6/21, depending on the year) off work. Our rationale is that Summer Solstice is the longest daylight of the year, and we don't want to spend it at work! We look forward to our annual tradition or spending Summer Solstice outside and together every year.
Hello New Love | Lisa Ottosson
8 x 12 | materials patterned paper (Creative Club) + stickers (My Little Shoebox, American Cafts
A Note from Lisa Teka always inspires me with her projects. I chose this simple page because of the big journaling banner. I wrote some lyrics on my banner and added my photo on top. I added a strip with low opacity in Picmonkey to the photo before printing it, so that I could easily add my letter stickers as a title.
Magic | Lisa Ottosson
8 x 12 | materials patterned paper (Jenni Bowlin) + embellishments (Crystal Wilkerson, Ali Edwards digital kit)
A Note from Lisa Ottosson This layout is inspired by Deb Duty´s page called Happiness. Deb always makes such cool layers so I wanted to mimic that. I had the Jenni Bowlin patterned papers but felt like I wanted something more. So I began doodling and ended up making that magic paper. It was much fun and I know I will do that again!
Lucky Me | Diane Payne
12 x 12 | materials cardstock (American Crafts) + patterned paper (Studio Calico, Basic Grey, American Crafts, Kesi Art) + washi tape (Freckled Fawn) + flair (A Flair for Buttons) + ink (Faber-Castell) + pen (American Crafts)
A Note from Diane As I re-read and looked at inspiring post after post from the last year, Amy Coose's layout with stitching around her photo caught my eye. I love how it framed and brought attention to her photo. It was exactly what I wanted to do to showcase the photos that captured my daughter's loving gifts to me this Mother's Day.
June Fun Fact It may be summer and school is out but we will be busier than ever with select softball tournaments, speed camp, wrestling lessons, football practice, baby sitting and a trip overseas. It will be a full and busy month, but I love it and wouldn't want it any other way!
Birthday Wishes| Amy Coose
12 x 12 | materials cardstock (Bazzill) + patterned paper (Pebbles, Studio Calico, American Crafts) + chipboard (Studio Calico) + mist(Studio Calico, Heidi Swapp) + pen (American Crafts) + tags (Chic Tags)
A Note from Amy As I went back through our amazing galleries from this past year, I was really inspired by Marnie's layoutfrom the Feeling Thankful gallery.
I loved the design of the layout and the sweet pictures of her kids with their grandparents, and I knew I had the perfect pictures of my baby boy with his grandmothers on his birthday, and I couldn't wait to get them scrapped.
June Fun Fact June is a busy month for us. We have the last day of school, my birthday and my daughter's birthday the day after, and we also usually travel home to see my family. I wait all year for this month, because it's filled with so much fun.
love you | Katie Ehmann
12 x 12 | materials cardstock (American Crafts) + patterned paper (Studio Calico) + stickers (Sassafrass, Studio Calico) + wood veneer (Studio Calico) + washi tape (Freckled Fawn)
June Fun Fact I don’t work during the summer and I can’t wait to spend all day lazing around the pool and scrapbooking at night!
Written in the Stars | Celeste Smith
12 x 12 | materials kits (Stencils no. 1 by Creashens at Pixels & Co., Stargazer by One Little Bird at The Lilypad, A Beautiful Mess Splatters by Just Jaimee at Pixels & Co., At the Thrift Shoppe by Jennifer Barrette at Sweet Shoppe Designs, Papery Stuffs by Dawn by Design at Pixels & Co.) + masks (Cut.It.Out Clipping Masks by Robyn Meierotto at Pixels & Co.) + stitching (In Stitches Neutral Basics by Robyn Meierotto at Pixels & Co., Sewing Kit 1 by Agnes Biro (retired)) + fonts (DBJ Celeste from Darcy Baldwin at Sweet Shoppe Designs)
A Note from Celeste Amy Sorenson's recent Silhouette Week was super inspiring. While I can't really use my Silhouette to scrapbook digitally, I can still bring the look to my pages by using the .png files to clip papers to and shadow to get the same look.
June Fun Fact I'm excited for school to end. Both boys will be going to sleepaway camp this year the same week. It's going to be fun for them, but I'm sure too quiet around here!
What’s in a Name? | Jennifer Larson
12 x 12 | materials cardstock (Bazzill) + patterned paper (Studio Calico, Lily Bee Designs) + stamp (Studio Calico) + ink (Stampin’ Up!, Jenni Bowlin) + wood veneer (Studio Calico) + punches (EK Success) + font (Times New Roman)
A Note from Jennifer Larson I took inspiration from a post by Amy Coose back in February about using your stash, specifically stamps for a background. I took a Polaroid stamp I had and stamped a background of Polaroids to serve as a photo mat, filling in the centers with patterned paper. This was a quick but eye catching design!
June Fun Fact I have a collection of Noah’s Ark pictures, figures, and cross-stitched samplers.
Lucky Number Forty I Christa Paustenbaugh
12 X 12 | materials patterned papers (Echo Park, Basic Grey, October Afternoon) + stickers (My Mind’s Eye, American Crafts, Jillibean Soup) + die cut (Evalicious for Cocoa Daisy, Chic Tags, Basic Grey) + rub on (Basic Grey) + brad (CosmoCricket) + ribbon (May Arts) + die cut machine (Silhouette SD)
A Note from Christa I took my inspiration this month from a Click post. I think it’s very important to take photos of ourselves as moms and not just let them sit on the memory card and/or computer, but also putting those on paper and scrapbooking them. I wanted to document my recent 40th birthday to embrace it!
June Fun Fact This month marks our 1 year anniversary of living overseas in Japan. We have had lots of adventures so far and looking forward to many, many more in our short time here. This month we head off to explore Seoul, South Korea.
A Note from Valerie This layout was inspired by Diane Payne's embellishment week back in January (1.28.13-2.1.13). I couldn't pick just one type of embellishment, so I used almost all the embellishments mentioned throughout the week.
June Fun Fact I actually enjoy repainting rooms in our home. Now the ceilings? not so much (and thanks to roof leaks, I've had to repaint almost every ceiling in our house).
A Note from Francine I love pretty much everything that Valerie does, and I especially loved her layout from the Conversations gallery in February. It got me excited about inking and stamping! I also used the free printables designed by Marnie for the Favourite Photos theme last December. They went perfectly with this month's theme AND my layout.
June Fun Fact Without my notebooks, lists, post-it notes and wall planner I wouldn't remember a thing!
A Note from Marnie Celeste is my hero. She is one of the most consistent scrapbookers alive. As I hunted through her year 4 layouts, I found this one with its place for flair and tiny patterns. I love how quickly it all came together. Maybe I should just copy all of Celeste's layouts!!!
June Fun Fact We just got a puppy!!!!!!
Miss Sandy | Marnie Flores
12 x 12 | materials papers (Crystal Wilkerson) + fonts (Bebas, Century Gothic)
A Note from Marnie I'm a big sucker for Francine's layouts. This one with it's grid was too perfect to pass up. I loved the two fonts on the edge, but couldn't get mine to work. But I wish I could have.
June Fun Fact We finished school in May this year, so June is all about the fun fun fun!
True Love | Marnie Flores
12 x 12 | materials papers (Crystal Wilkerson) + fonts (Bondoluo, Century Gothic)
A Note from Marnie Christine is so incredibly talented. When I saw her layout in our November gallery, I was taken in by the mixing of patterns and how cool it looked with the patterns and colors.
June Fun Fact Did I mention we got a puppy? We love her. Her name is Chartreuse Rosabelle Starlight. But we just call her Charlie!
It's a terrific gallery, no? If you would like to see the gallery as a whole, you may do so here. And there you will find all the journaling, too!
For a little bit of birthday fun, a few of us put together some journaling, photography, and scrapbooking tips. If you would like to start with Aliza, she will get you headed to the next place. And if you get lost, here is the list:
Today I will show you a few more hybrid projects you can make. These are just some examples of items that I have made. The possibilities really are endless. You are really only limited by your creativity and imagination.
DIY Washi Tape - just copy and paste four pieces of digital patterned paper into a 8.5x11 document in Photoshop. Then print it out on Avery labels.
DIY tickets - I designed these in Silhouette Studio and made them print & cut.
You can see more about these tickets and how I used them in my Project Life here on my blog.
DIY Crafting Calling Cards - instead of calling them business cards, these are more like friendship cards. I made these in Photoshop using digital doodles by Kate Hadfield. I take them to crops and crafty meetups and hand them out to new friends I meet.
They look like this digitally. The front has several different designs, and the back has my headshot and contact info. I had them printed at Moo.com.
And this is what they look like in real life.
Every time I give them out, there seems to be smiling and squealing involved. People love them!
DIY Elf Party Souvenirs - we have an annual Elf movie viewing party at our house in December, where we invite friends over for dinner, dessert (involving all the sugar food groups), and Elf-movie-watching. I used digital doodles by Kate Hadfied (again) and did print & cut with my Silhouette to make these party treat bags.
And I designed these Elf t-shirts in Silhouette Studio. I cut the Elf shape out using Silhouette's flocked vinyl heat transfer material and ironed them onto the shirts. I designed the lettering surrounding the graphic and cut out templates
using my Silhouette. Then I used fabric ink on the t-shirts.
These are just some examples of how fun it is to incorporate digital tools and graphics into your crafting toolbox! I hope you will give hybrid crafting a try. I know that you will love being able to make all these cool DIY projects!
Thanks so much for joining us this week for Hybrid scrapbooking and crafting. I had so much fun showing you my projects and all the possibilities that can be achieved with digital + paper. :)

Please come back tomorrow for the Hybrid Week wrap-up as I show you more cool hybrid DIY projects!
The first way I use digital products with my Silhouette is to use black & white png/jpeg files to trace and cut shapes. The ability to trace & cut inside the Silhouette Studio software is what makes this tool so powerful. It means you can cut out any digital graphics you desire!
I resized them to 6 inches and cut them out with various patterned papers. I ended up sewing these borders onto 4x6 cardstock to make custom journal cards!
You can trace & cut any digital shape you want. This opens up your
Silhouette cutting possibilities to any digital file you can
find/purchase on the internet! For this layout, I found a map of California on the internet and traced the cut outline in Silhouette Studio.
A second way to incorporate digital graphics with your Silhouette machine is to use the print & cut function. This is very similar to trace & cut, but you would use colored digital graphics, and you would only trace the outline versus everything. After tracing the outline of the digital graphics, you would turn on the registration marks in the Silhouette Studio software. Then print out the graphics with the registration marks using your regular printer. Put the sheet back onto your Silhouette cutting mat and let the machine detect the registration marks so it knows where to cut. I will show you a few examples.
I traced the cut outlines in Silhouette Studio. Then I printed out the sheet and had the Silhouette cut it.
I did the same thing using other various graphics from The Lilypad.
I created a video tutorial on how to print & cut any digital graphics using the Silhouette for The Lilypad blog. You can find it here or on youtube here.
More print & cut diecuts using digital graphics.
Which I used to make these two cards.
My coolest print & cut project was probably doing a whole hybrid 12x12 layout using digital scrapbooking supplies. For this project I used the digital kit "For The Record" by One Little Bird and Paislee Press. First I created a digital layout in Photoshop so I get the sizing and placement correctly on my page.
Next I placed all the elements I want to print & cut onto a separate 8.5x11 canvas in Photoshop. I saved the 8.5x11 as a jpeg file.
Then I opened up the file in Silhouette Studio and traced the cut outlines.
Then I printed the page with the registration marks. After that I put the sheet back onto my Silhouette cutting mat and sent it through my Silhouette machine to cut.
Then I created my hybrid page by placing and adhering all my elements onto white cardstock and adding other embellishments such as punched glitter paper, wood veneers, twine, paint, and sewing.
A third way to use digital graphics with the Silhouette is to trace the digital graphics and then use the Silhouette sketch function to draw them onto paper with a pen. I made some cards using this method and some digital frames from The Lilypad.
I traced the graphics inside my Silhouette Studio software. Then I used a Chomas pen holder and used some Sakura glitter pens to draw the shapes onto white cardstock.
I arranged them so that I got two cards out of 8.5x11 cardstock.
After the Silhouette sketching was done, I just cut the sheet in half, folded both of them, and adhered some other digital elements I had print & cut (see above) using dimensional foam adhesive.
I hadn't gotten enough of the Silhouette sketching using the doodled frames, so I used some more digital graphics and made some sketched 3x4 journal cards for Project Life using more Sakura glitter pens.
These hybrid projects incorporating digital graphics with the Silhouette opens up a world of possibilities! I love everything about it.
