Hello! It's Jennifer Larson with a quick challenge for you: Make a project that uses lettering as a dramatic or design focus. I'll be back later this week with some inspiration and a project! I hope you play along.
Hi all, Lisa here today! When Dee told us her topic for this week, I just had to make a page! I will have a sweet tooth forever!
I decided to go with a photo of the spoon full of Nutella that is heaven :) The journaling does say that a spoon full of Nutella every day makes a girl happy, but it might go a few days between! I used my watercolors to make a simple background for this page. I love how happy this page looks!
Sweet isn't just oven baked goodness when summer comes. It is also popsicles, slurpees, and fruit. And to me, no fruit is summer quite like watermelon. I have a zillion pictures of the kids eating watermelon. The juice dripping down their chins. Their big eyes as they bite from pieces wider than their heads. I love it all.
For this layout, I switched out the colors on the slide reel for the colors of watermelon. With the black and white photo, the colors in the layout direct your attention to watermelon in the photo. Ah, we are suggestible creatures. :)
As you are creating sweet layouts this week, remember that sweet things don't have to come from the oven!
Hi! It's Dee and I'm here with a new challenge for this week: document the sweet stuff!
As said before I'm a real foodie! I love to eat, cook, write and talk about food! The thing I love most is the sweet stuff, so I've got loads of pictures of me just munching on pastries, macarons, et cetera. And, because I know I love to document these pictures, I thought it would be fun to challenge you and do the same!
Here's the layout I created for this theme:
And another one:
And, last but not least, an older layout. I made it back in 2012 but the theme is fitting so I thought I'd share it with you all.
These layouts do not contain big stories, important things I like to remember. And even though I like to make pages that are very journaling heavy and that document the bigger things in life, I do like to keep it short&sweet (pun intended) every now and then!
I hope you feel inspired to document the sweet stuff in life and that you will share your pages on social media with the hashtags #wcsaprilchallenge and #wcsdocumentsweetstuff
It's April and we are celebrating all things funny this month. Our gallery this month is No Foolin' and it is sure to make you giggle. If you would like to see the layouts and read the journaling, please hop on over to our gallery! Enjoy!
It's Aliza again, and I have a brand, spankin' new, never before seen layout. In it, I use a couple of text messages to capture where my older son is at now. Namely, he is out and about ALL THE TIME. Yesterday I shared a layout from 2014 in which I wrote, "the day when Max doesn't live here anymore is now in the very countable future." Back then I meant that it was two years away. Now it is mere months away, and it is starting to hurt. bad.
When I first thought of this layout, and when I took screenshots of those texts, I did not intend for this layout to be so heavy. I really meant it to be lighthearted and proud. But it morphed into a much longer, tougher story. On the positive side, I started to feel better as soon as this page was done. So hooray for scrap therapy!
DO you have a group of messages that capture your stage of life? A Relationship? Or maybe they just tell one particular story. Join in our challenge and scrap them! You can link up on Instagram. #wcsmarchchallenge #scrapyourtexts
Hello! It's Aliza again, sharing what I hope is some inspiration for using text messages in your projects
This first layout is from 2014. I haven't really looked at it in a while, and I am admiring it all over again. (Not very humble of me.) It includes a text between me and my son, and the journaling is about how I feel about texting with him. (I love it.) I find talking on the phone a mild form of torture. And by mild, I actually mean severe. So for me, texting is like sitting on the beach with a slightly alcoholic beverage. Which is something I have never done, but it seems like it would feel relaxing and peaceful.
My next project is from just a few weeks ago. This is my first year doing Project Life for any significant period of time. God bless that app, let me tell you. I find that Project Life is a great place to keep little snippets of conversation that happen via text. On this page, there's a text that captures a bit of our humor, and in another, my son and I make up after an argument. I love that I have that little moment recorded, and I don't think I would have created an entire layout about it. So it makes me happy that is has a home here.
Come back again tomorrow when I share a brand new layout using text messages. I did not intend it at all, but it almost feels like a continuation of my 2014 layout that I shared here. But you'll have to come back to get the whole scoop!
