This month we are focusing on weddings. Tough subject for a team who scrapbooks daily living much more than big events. But, easy or not, events happen. And are great photo ops. Needing great layouts.
Rather than focus on the difficulties of scrapbooking the big day, we decided to break it down. The colors, the people, the memories of the day. Dreams realized. Hopes for the future. The details in cakes, flowers, dresses. And slowly, the layouts began to come together. In spite of our fears.
And do you know what we found? You don't need your own wedding photos to scrapbook your wedding memories. Wedding layouts don't need to be fancy. Wedding layouts are most fun when they still represent your style. And true to our nature of thinking outside the box, some of our wedding layouts might have nothing at all to do with our weddings!
So before you go running in fear from the idea of redoing your own wedding photos, please click on into our July gallery and see what fun wedding layouts can be.
Karen took the opportunity to look at her favorite wedding moments.
Donna put her three favorite photos on one beautifully designed page.
Monika found a delightful bent-knee wedding day photo to celebrate her ongoing love for her Mr. wRight.
Aly provides ideas for finishing an album you began long ago.
Marcy used this month's topic as a means to explain her taking up and closing down her wedding photography business.
Moon captures her friend's wedding in four prefectly placed photos.
Amy focuses on her hopes for her daughter's future wedding.
Christa's page celebrates the qualities in a husband that she wanted... and got!
Just one more time? Please, oh please? Let's have one last round of birthday celebrations! And one last use of our awesome birthday mosaic!
Did you know over the past two years we have had 24 monthly galleries and 885 blog posts (this makes 886!)? We have had 28.823 comments and 1,244,707 page views.
This year, we have added 10 new teammates and Twitter and Tumblr. We've done more giveaways than there are weeks in the year. We have added new babies to the fold, and kissed big babies as they left for college. And somehow, in the middle of it all we still found time to cook, clean, parent, launder, shovel, mow, plant, sew, work, and sometimes, but not often, sleep.
It's been quite a year!
Before we tell you about today's giveaway, we wanted to let you know about our new summer scheduling. As you know, each week one of our team members hosts the blog for a Monday through Saturday stretch. We love this format and will return to it September 5th. But until then, we are going on summer vacation.
No, sillies, we aren't closing shop for three months, rather we are adapting our format to allow our teammates to spend more time with their families. Therefore, during the months of June, July, and August, the blogging hostess will change every single day! Now you won't have to wait for weeks for your favorite to appear! But you will have to stay on your toes and check in daily to be sure to see who is making a grand entrance that day.
Just think how fun it will be to pop in each day to see who will be hosting! A little extra summer fun! We hope you enjoy this summer schedule and can't wait to get started! Our general format (Thursday giveaways, and Sunday photos) will continue. There will be a change in how long the giveaways remain open, so be sure to read the fine print on Thursday!
And now on to our last final day of birthday celebrations.
The single greatest thing about being a part of Write. Click. Scrapbook. is our most amazing team. These ladies are, as you know, smart, funny, and extremely talented. While some of them have helped shape the scrapbooking community for years, others are now taking it by storm and ready to leave their own unforgettable mark. If I may take a few minutes, I wanted to share with you what I see in each of our designers.
How about reverse alphabetical?
Wendy - has more knowledge about the industry in her pinkie than most do in their whole being. Kind, perceptive, and quietly ambitious. Her pages are colorful and humorous and remind us to try new things.
Vivian - is soft, gentle, and has a great laugh. Her pages are filled with stories that make me long to be a better mother, and they have a sensibility and groundedness to them.
Stacy - is the reason that simple exists as a defined form! Exuberant, vivacious and incredibly energetic. Her pages radiate the same love of life that she does.
Paula - is bright, attentive, and watchful. Her pages are filled with photoframes, careful insights into her children, and are equally amazing in both digital and traditional formats.
Moon - is high-lair-ee-ous. Wicked in her wit and able to find the humor in anything. Her pages are balanced, graphic, and validate my feelings that parenting is hard sometimes.
Monika - is kind-hearted, jubilant, and one of the most cheerful people on earth. Her pages are filled with love, her delightful handwriting, and she has a way with finding or creating the perfect embellishments.
Melissa - is uber-crafty, and is simultaneously practical and whimsical. I love how her bright happy pages often have one main larger embellishment which perfectly adds to the page's story.
Marie - is smart, steady, and loyal. Her photos draw you into her pages but it is her scrapbooking of fierce friendships that makes me wish I were one of her besties.
Lisa O - is funny, clever, and patient. Her pages remind me to scrapbook my childhood and that teeny little embellishments can have a big impact.
Keshet - is darling, devoted, and youthful (in a good way!). Her pages remind me to be proud of my heritage, and that life (and pages) exist beyond my children.
Kelly - is well-read, well-spoken, and well-written. I love that her pages are not the only way she scrapbooks and that her home is filled with her talent!
Katrina - is earthy, calming, and centered. Her pages exude this same calm and her stories are genuine, heartfelt, and have just the perfect sprinkle of giggles.
Karen - is introspective, thoughtful, and intuitive. Her pages reflect her intellect and she has a remarkable ability with patterns, color, and combining bold and tiny elements.
Jody - is the perfect balance between strength and vulnerability, with a side of acerbic wit. Her pages are perfectly composed in every way and she makes me want to scrapbook more, and more deeply.
Francine - is urban, hip, and amazingly competent. Her pages have delightful little details that balance her big word titles, and her positive outlook shines through on her pages.
Erin - is sarcastic, uninhibited, and endearing. Her pages have an accessibility and girl-next-door quality that makes them very delightful.
Emily - is quirky, dry-witted, and ever-so-friendly. Her charming personality effuses from her colorful eclectic artistic pages.
Donna - is considerate, compassionate and filled with depth. Her pages reflect her pure heart and give us a glimpse into the sweet nature that fills her mother heart.
Cheryl - is irreverent, raucous, and one of the funniest people I know. Her pages ooze personality and her mad home decor skills made me green with envy.
Celeste- is unselfish, organized, accomplishing and could singlehandedly scrapbook for an entire small nation, in one weekend crop. Any one of her pages could be used as an example of perfectly executed design principles.
Beth - is refined, beautiful, and the picture of class. Her talent for printables and packaging will one day make her even more famous than her clean, color well designed pages!
Autumn - is kind, unassuming, and incredible. Her pages have the feel and design of high quality ads, and that she captures her boys' antics so honestly is refreshing and makes me smile.
Ann - is teensy in body but with a giant heart. I love how her mathematical side comes through in the organization on her pages, but still leaves plenty of room for her creativity to shine.
Angie - is perfectly goofy, centered, and can't help but make you smile. Her pages show just how big her heart is, though I most appreciate them for their grammatical correctness. (Or shallI say their goodest grammars?)
Amy - is dedicated, surprising, and clever. Her strength, for me, is her remarkable ability to put her thoughts into perfect words and phrases which makes her pages shine.
Aly - is focused, prolific, and giving. I love how she is not afraid to try new techniques and adapt them to her signature style to create pages that are both recognizable and current.
Marcy, Lisa, Christa, Claudia, and Alexandra, please know how happy we are to have you aboard and how we look forward to getting to know you and your strengths. Thank you for joining our team!
We wanted to end this week of celebration with a few personal giveaways. From our team to you.
That's it! Thirteen lucky numbers. Seems about as lucky as lucky could be. We are happy to share our talents with you and can't say thank you enough to all of you for joining us each day. If you would like to be considered for these giveaways, please leave us a comment identifying a designer (by her letter) in the birthday mosaic. You may leave as many comments as you can match people to letters (but just one comment per teammate identified). Comments will remain open until next Friday evening. All 13 lucky numbers will be chosen at random from the correct responses, and the names will be posted on Saturday, June 10th. Please remember to check back to see if yours is one of the lucky thirteen!
Thank you for being with us this week! We hope to see you every day in our comments and in the Flickr gallery! We appreciate you!
We are so very excited that June has arrived. Summer is beginning, school is ending, and here we are celebrating!!
Today today today today today today is our birthday. Or anniversary. Whichever it is, we are happy to eat some (cup)cake(s)!
But not only is our birthday, and our redesign day, but it is also the first of the month, which means we have a new gallery! This month, each of our designers looked to our very own site for their inspiration.
Do you find inspiration here? We really hope so, for that is truly our main goal. At Write. Click. Scrapbook. we want to inspire you to create pages. To document your histories, your dailies, and your memories. And we want you to love your pages. To be proud of your photos, and stories. And how you put them together. There is so much out there for fancy pages, for super technique, for the art of it all. For those of us who are more comfortable scrapping simply, there is the potential to feel like your pages aren't enough. That you aren't doing it right. Which just isn't true. We believe in you. And your simple pages. In fact, we love them! Because here, simple is stunning!!
Lastly, we need to bid a temporary farewell to our dearest editor, Elizabeth Dillow. For the past two and half years ago, Elizabeth has been an integral part of this site. Suffice it to say that without her we would not have begun, let alone continued to grow and flourish for the past two years. It is with very heavy hearts and tear-stained faces that we say farewell, for now. We look forward to her returning in January as a regular team member. Until then, we will miss her dearly.
Thank you, again for being the greatest readers that we could have ever asked for. We hope that you love us, too, and look forward to many more years together. For today, eat a cupcake in our behalf, drink a Dr. Pepper in Elizabeth's honor, and enjoy our birthday! Celebrations will continue through Saturday!!
Before we begin the fun of a brand new gallery, we must first bid farewell to some of our Write. Click. Scrapbook. family. Rebecca, Sara, Kim and Aussie Jody are leaving us this month. We are heartbroken to lose them, but recognize that family comes first, and work trumps play. We have appreciated their style, their teaching, their contributions, and most of all, their friendship. As we bid them adieu, we hope that they will peek in from time to time as we will on them. Good luck friends, you will be missed.
This month, our theme is Everydaily. Yes, we made up a word. It's our very own special way of recognizing everything we do everyday. You know the daily stuff: dishes, diapers, visiting www.writeclickscrapbook.com. The stuff that happens so much it's not just everyday, and not just daily, but instead, it's Everydaily!!
Have you ever sat down at the end of the day, tired, exhausted really, thinking, why am I so tired? It's not like I have done much... And then you start to make a list in your head and then realize you have been on the go all. day. long. Phew! No wonder you are tired.
We all have been scrapbooking long enough to have learned to appreciate the little things. Truly we do appreciate them. We have begun to look at our days and our hours and our minutes differently. As we try to be more in touch with the beauty of the everyday, what we photograph might have changed. Or how we journal might have become a bit more real. This month we want to celebrate our days. Our team has put together some fantastic layouts to inspire you to create your own bit of everydaily heaven.
Melissa chronicles all that her boys do in their twelve hours of wakefulness. Celeste created a list of an average day--be warned, you might be tired from reading it, let alone living it. (note: she wakes at 5:45. Superwoman!!)
Hourly journaling takes a fun twist when Karen puts her signature style to it adding bitty photos to help tell the stories. And while Vivian takes a more traditional list approach, don't for a second think it makes for a boring layout!! Aly not only notes each activity throughout a typical day, but she also managed to take her camera along!! And putting arranging her page in calendar form is genius! Keshet includes a selfie that adds the "what were you wearing that day" element to her long list of to-dids.
As Marie put her daily elements together, she didn't limit herself to taking all her photos from one day. Instead she dipped into her 365 photos and found ones that represented daily life. What great permission to (re)use or (re)purpose photos you already have. Autumn used seven photos on her layout, one for each day of the week, and her journaling represents a list of a week's worth of everydaily activities. No rule that an everydaily layout can't be weekly, or monthly...
Lisa uses an old note and some saved photo booth photos to remember what daily life held for her back when her daughter was just one and a half. Moon created lists of what each of her children do on one particular day of the week, and then paired them with a closeup photo of each child. Why make it complicated? Francine picked a random day (coincidentally the same day as Moon...) and tried to capture the day in photos, letting them do most of the talking for what her son does in a typical day. Donna also lets her photos help tell the story of how she and her boys spend their time on a given day (sadly not Tuesday this time, though. Teehee!) and makes great use of a grid to help keep her page organized and clean.
Taking a different spin on the Everydaily, Elizabeth created a page reminding her of the things she wants to keep foremost in her everyday living. And Emily used a family photo paired with a twice daily ritual in their home to document one of their family priorities.
Kelly bravely took a photo of her junk drawers (all 4! teehee!) reminding us that is is okay to document the not so pretty stuff, too. Monika joined in, taking snapshots of some little messes she found around the house one morning (I wonder if it was a Tuesday?) and then reinterpreting the idea of a mess as an opportunity to describe their daily living. Her optimism and humor must have been contagious as Ann took an humorous approach with her page, trying to explain exactly what it is she does all day at work.
Taking time to document the little things about her half-marathon, Katrina does double duty, as her page is homage to and celebration of many daily runs. You go girl!! Fellow runner Amy took the story of how one ordinary everyday Saturday morphed into something greater. Because sometimes the ordinary can become more. Great perspective, Amy!
Arranging her photos horizontally, and coming up with yet another amazing title treatment, Jody tells the story of her daughter's Everydailies with white space to spare. Marnie met Jody's white space and raised her one while she documented the most mundane of daily things, pen hair.
Join us in celebrating (and by that we mean actually scrapbooking!!) the Everydaily parts of your life. Be they boring, routine, tedious, or foundational, don't forget to scrapbook the little things. Imagine if you could see layouts of the velvet wallpaper of your childhood homes. Or if you knew all the miles your mom put in driving you back and forth to activities. Have you calculated how many hours you spend feeding, changing, and holding your newborn? This is the month. Please let us inspire you to document the details of your Everydaily.
My name is Cheryl and I would like to apologize in advance for the disorganization and eclecticness (eclectnicity?) of the coming week.
As usual I have a slew of excuses and reasons for my behaviour and here they are:
It's Spring! In addition to real life, project making and blogging I have begun the arduous task of spring cleaning. In my house spring cleaning is also known as “dump everything in the middle of the room, start chucking stuff out then move to another room to put something away and repeat, THEN when all rooms have large piles, panic a little, drink a lot of coffee and eventually get back to it”. This process usually takes me at least a couple of weeks and usually causes my husband to quietly consider a trial two week separation. (*interesting factoid #1: I am the only member of my family that considers spring cleaning to be quality family time.)
That's it. Usually my excuse for things is I'm cheap and lazy (and/or easy), which only half fits here, so I'm going with “it's Spring!”
I realize that one and one half excuses could not really be considered a slew, so I added this one. Plus I like when my Word program adds the indented numbers for me. Slick.
I'm going to try not to be too wordy, but I'm also smart enough to not make any promises on that front.
I will include lots of pictures and I will hope that most of them will be relevant. In a way, I guess I'm just suggesting that you buckle up, grab a coffee and hang on for the ride.
Two weeks ago I had an itemized list of things that I was going to write about and share.
It was a lovely list.
Written with purple pen (not that I'm partial to purple pens, but it was the closest pen and in retrospect seems slightly more fancy than your standard blue or black).
Little flower doodles in the corners.
Tiny hearts separating each thought (I'm totally lying about the hearts, but I wish I had of done that).
And then I lost the list.
So like I said:
coffee (or your beverage of choice)
I know this is primarily a scrapbooking site, but I find as my kids get older, I seem to scrapbook less and do more home decor type projects. And since it's been almost 2 years since I hosted here I thought I would more or less redo the theme I did last time which was making stuff from junk I find at thrift stores.
Or if you're in a purple pen kind of mood we can call it “Scrapbooking in Today's Green World: ReUse, ReInvent, ReCreate”.
I hope that's okay.
Okay, time for slightly less talk and a little more action.
The last time I hosted I had started a photo wall in our basement.
I'm almost finished.
I know that was almost two years ago, but sometimes I get distracted. Plus, our basement is where our boys hang out. It smells like pre-teen boys (which is similar to feet, but worse) and sounds like angry drumming, electric guitar and nerf gun-wars, so I'm sure you can understand why I don't make it habit of going down there.
One of the things that I did before starting on my photo wall was hit the internets. I googled my way through a plethora of images before settling on the first one I saw (hello, Pottery Barn, my pretty)
These were the two that I finally printed off:
Then I took these sheets shopping with me and picked out a couple of frames with oval mats (to go with the 393 square and rectangular frames that I have unused and hidden around my house).
I decided that the photo ledge was the way to go, because, frankly, having to hang two things levelly sounded much better than a) trying to hang a bunch of photos myself, all those excess nail holes are hard to hide or b) spending an afternoon with my husband hanging them, (see above: 2 week trial separation - after many years together we know which sports not to participate as a team in).
This is what our downstairs photo wall looks like so far:
I used a little piece on the ledge that I shared during the last time I hosted the blog:
I think I will add another ledge underneath the middle one - it looks weirdly empty to me.
Here is more of the room:
And here is a close-up of the top of the trunk that my mom painted for me.
(the trunk was my mom and dad's when they were first married):
Then, as I am accustomed to doing, I began to binge a bit on photo ledges.
I purchased them at a store here called Jysk (pronounced Yisk for some strange Scandanavian reason, I think I heard that it's the same reason that we Canadians feel the need to add the letter u to many words). But I'm pretty sure you can pick them up just about anywhere shelves are sold.
I did these ones in our bedroom:
(somewhat interesting factoid #2: the distressed frames were found at the dollar store a few years ago for $5 each, no spraypaint was harmed in the making of this photo wall)
And here is a close up of the little digital art I made to break up all the black frames:
And here is a 5x7 PDF download of the pieces shown above for you to use if you like:
The vase was a shiny beige flower vase I've had kicking around for about 20 years, I painted it with black spraypaint and cut the four out of dollar store vinyl with my Cricut and then when the black paint was dry, put the vinyl on and used a matte white spraypaint overtop. When I peeled the vinyl off, the edges of the number 4 weren't super clean so when it dried I just sanded it a bit in a "I totally meant to do that" sort of way.
Funny, a lot of my projects seem to end that way.
The two framed pieces are digital art that I made in PSE using lyrics from a Maroon 5 song and printed on canvas paper that I purchased last year at the art store (it comes in rolls and when it works it looks really cool, but when it doesn't it makes me say bad words to my printer and canvas paper in general).
Do you want to know the one thing that I haven't been able to find at the second hand stores?
Is the suspense killing you?
I long for a printer tray.
But mostly I long for finding a printer tray in a thrift store for $1.99.
It could happen.
But while I long and wait patiently for that day, please peruse some of my fellow WCS girls' gorgeous printer trays, which to me seem like a condensed version of a photo/art wall.
So, now, not only do I want to find a printer tray real cheap, but I want to get married again and hire a proper photographer for GORGEOUS wedding photos, and I might as well throw some time travel in there (you know, where I know what I know NOW but get to go back in time to have a do-over of some sort with all this knowledge).
Lisa made two more that she graciously shared as well:
(*note to self: take self portrait with family lying on our backs)
Thanks again, Ladies. I have just mentally doubled my efforts to find a cheap printer tray.
So that's today.
I hope it wasn't too long.
I'm sure it was so I hope that many of you are skimmers and stayed with me to get to the photos.
Stick around after the break, coming up next, I've Got Wood! Paint, Stamping and Other Applications.
If you're anything like me, you tend to stick to what you're comfortable with when designing your layouts. (I'm sensing a theme here, first journaling, now this.) It's certainly easy that way, but it's also easy to get in to a rut. It could be page size, photos, how simple or complex your pages are, technique, or what type of embellishments you use. We do what we know, what we're good at, what we like.
But sometimes, it's good to step out of our comfort zone and try a new style or technique. I challenged four WCSers to do just this, and here's what they came up with.
Keshet is not a stamper, but for this challenge she decided to break out the stamps and see what happened.
While I have a nice-sized stamp collection, I don't actually use my stamps very often! I tend to use premade embellishments more than ones I create myself, and I'm never sure how the stamping will actually turn out on my layout. I found with this layout that I can actually use stamps much more freely if I cut them out and place them on the layout--that way, if I don't get a perfect image the first time, I won't sweat it! To create the stamped clouds on this layout, I used Studio Calico stamps that coordinate with Fiskars cloud punches to stamp and then punch out my clouds. I love the homespun charm they add to my layout, and with no stress, either! I look forward to trying stamping again soon now that I'm learning how to make it work for me.

Celeste challenged herself to try misting on a layout, something she'd been hesitant to do.
I have been resistant to misting ever since I had to do it for an article in Simple in 2008. I am not a fan or anything messy or imprecise, so you'll rarely find me using paint or ink. I've been known to say "I'm not a mister." I took the easy way out here too! I put my paper in a box and squirted just a couple times to get a little on the background paper. The box helped me with the mess and after I sprayed I rolled a paper towel roll across the cardstock to sop up the excess (less mess). This kept the paper from warping another one of my fears! I think the ink gave some texture and interest to my page - a bit of fun perhaps. I plan on trying it again - maybe next time with a mask.
For Donna, it's rub-ons. Yet she just couldn't resist these Studio Calico rub-ons.
I took Amy's Bits and Pieces challenge a couple of weeks back and I did so mainly for the rub-on part of the challenge. I don't really know why, but I just hardly ever use them. Because of that I hardly ever buy them anymore either - I have to be really tempted by the design. I tried to resist these days of the week rub-ons from Studio Calico but they got me in the end! Since a lot of what I tend to scrapbook is our everyday lives I figured I'd have a good chance of using them. For this page I just collected lots of my favorite shots from this spring so far. I hope I never forget these simple everyday moments. It's a huge part of why I scrapbook.
Amy tends to stick with flat embellishments on her pages, so for this layout, she challenged herself to use thick embellishments Bonus - she made them herself!
The "outside my box" thing I did was the flowers. I love this look but it makes me deeply anxious to have something that thick on a layout—so I've never done it before. What I discovered is that making the flowers was really fun. It let me dig into my stash of fabrics for patterns I couldn't have found in paper. Will I make something this thick again? Not often (because I'm still not certain how well it will fit into an album!) but yes, absolutely sometimes! (PS, I made the flower by cutting wavy strips of three different fabrics. Each strip is narrower than the next one. I sewed a gathering row of stitches---just the longest stitch your machine will do---gathered them, and then formed them into circles. I also broke out my glue gun to put it all together. This is also outside of my comfort zone, quite literally, as I always manage to burn myself when I use the glue gun. No exception with the flowers!)

If you're feeling up to the challenge, try a supply or technique you've been avoiding on a layout. You might find a new go-to technique!
In like a lion, March has come. But we are not speaking of weather, no, we are referring to some take-no-prisoners, king-of-the-jungle scrapbooking. But first, some business.
Today we say goodbye to Jamie Waters. We were so honored to have you with us, and wish you all the best in your continued endeavors. Jamie brought us her delightful whimsy, her heartfelt journaling, her excellent use of stickers, and her amazing photography. Jamie, you will be missed.
Onto some happier news, we are pleased to let you all know that we have begun tweeting! Yes, our Twitter page is up and running and we would love for you to find us there. We are writeclickscrap and you can be quite sure that we would love to add you to the fun!! (You can find that link on our navigation bar at the top of the site). And if you are scared of tweeting, we can offer you some links to help you out. Leave us word and we will do our best to hold your hand!!
Next, before we get to our gallery, we have heard your request for a place to comment on the layouts. Right now, Typepad doesn't have this function within the photo albums, but we would still love for you to tell us what you loved. We read each and every comment and we cannot tell you how much it makes our day to know that you love what you see!
How many of you have unfinished ideas/projects/layouts sitting around? We have heard that some of you go to crops and make wonderful layouts but never add your photos when you go home. And some of you are organized enough to keep a drawer or folder of unfinished layouts, but knowing where they are doesn't exactly win the page completion prize, does it??
Guess what? sometimes pages just need to get done. Sometimes you need to realize that the memories aren't getting any crisper, that the stack of photos isn't getting any slimmer. Sometimes, you just have to put the pedal to the metal and crank it out. It may not be the best work of art, you may not even display it on your wall, but at the end of the day, the story is recorded, the photo matched to the story, and the memory is preserved.
Because the scrapbook police care much less about whether every layout is publishable, and much more about whether your memories are captured for everyone to enjoy. In 50 years, no one will be thinking about whether you used the perfect paper. (They will be too distracted by the fashion and the hair to care!!) We jest. But this month, please, take the time to finish up a layout that has been sitting still for too long. Or to record that story that is told over and over but hasn't yet made it into your book. Or scrapbook the obvious, the overlooked, the difficult. Perhaps you can use a page to change your perspective. Or take time to record a part of life that you will no longer choose to procrastinate. Our lives and our scrapbooks are waiting for us to take hold and fly. Let's do it. No more excuses. Today is the day! Let's free ourselves of an obligation! We cannot guarantee that it will change your life, but it will help you put a check in the done column. And those little checks do change our lives.
Good luck! and thank you for letting us inspire you this month! Enjoy the gallery!
