October 2014 - Weeks 42 and 43 in my pocket scrapbook album

Happy Halloween and Happy {international}Digital Scrapbook Day Weekend!!! 

I'm excited to share something new at The Lilypad this weekend! They now have a monthly pocket scrapbooking subscription! The mixed media monthly was such a hit that it only seemed perfect to add in the other part of what makes The Lilypad so awesome and diverse, it's pocket scrapbookers!

Week In The Life | Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I knew I'd have a day that was so busy I'd forget to pull out the camera for most of it. I lost lots of photos today, but it's ok, I can still complete Ali Edwards' Week In The Life without them. I am considering setting an alarm for the top of the hour and taking a snapshot of each hour in our house. I think that would be tons of fun to see.

Week In The Life | Tuesday, October 28, 2014

I'm impressed with myself, I'm still going strong on the photo taking and keeping up with Ali Edwards' Week In The Life. I suppose it's only day two but I'm sure Thursday's photos will be pretty slim pickin's. 

It's probably a good thing it's a holiday weekend so I'll get some Halloween photos on Friday at least. I think as long as I get 10 photos each day, I'll be happy. I need to remember on Thursday to take those photos of things like food we eat and other chores we do.

OUR TUESDAY IN PHOTOS

I called Tuesday our "Introvert Day"! With being so busy on Monday, I needed a day of just staying home to prepare for a busy Wednesday and coming weekend. I'm sure I'll have another one on Thursday before the busy weekend. Yes, I stayed in my yoga pants and t-shirt all day. I love days like this!

Week In The Life | Monday, October 27, 2014

One of my favorite scrapbook albums I do every year is Ali Edwards' Week In The Life. I love everything about it. I love looking back each year and seeing how things have changed. This is my fourth year doing it and already I'm having a blast. I thought that this year I'd share the photos and everything on the blog. Then when I finish the album I'll share the whole album.

Mixed Media Tutorial: 4 Step Gelli Plate Intro

I'm super excited to share with you some tutorials using one of my favorite tools, the Gelli Plate. I use it a lot and I can't believe I haven't shared it with you yet. It is definitely in my top ten tools for mixed media art. I have the 6"x6" one, but really want all of them, there is just so much you can do with both the little ones and the larger ones. I also think the circle one is really cool too.

Today I'm going to show how I prep my papers and then a base print with the Gelli Plate. This is going to be a series because there is just so much you can do with it. Have I told you how much I love this tool?!
