Saturday, December 7, 2013, State of the Desk

As part of the blogging schedule I am contemplating for the new year, I thought I would introduce, Saturday's State of the Desk, where I give you a glimpse at my workspace in whatever state it is in when I call it a night on Saturday.  Instead of waiting for the new year, I thought I'd start now.

Here it is....


Just finished working on the cover page for my Daily Life Binder for 2014.

Layout Share: Six


I knew that in order to capture all of the things I wanted to for the celebration of WTK's birthday, I would have to include a lot of pictures.  When that happens, I rely on my tried and true photo collage templates that I purchased from Kerri Bradford.  This is the best way I've found to include a multitude of photos.  In going through the thumbnails of the photos I had from this event, I picked five photos.  Unfortunately, at normal size one of the photos was too blurry and must have been taken in between a yawn and something else, cause, let's just say that wasn't an expression WTK would want captured for all of eternity.  So, I played with the template a bit and decided to cut off the photo that should have stretched horizontally along the bottom under the other three pictures. 

Once I had my collage developed and printed, it was scrapping time.  My favorite part.  The background number symbol or hashtag paper was included in a kit.  It's from My Mind's Eye, It's Presh, "Right Now" Hashtag paper.   I more saw it as a number symbol than a hashtag because truth be told, I don't really understand the whole hashtag thing.  As WTK was celebrating a birthday, I thought the number symbol worked.

The six design I used for the title is an available cut in the Silhouette store.  I make most of my cuts on white cardstock from American Crafts and this was no exception.  I then used Adirondack Color Wash spray in Denim to make the die cut the color I wanted. 

I struggled a bit with where to put that die cut.  It didn't look right just layered over the photo, so I took a piece of orange scrap, adhered it to that and then layered it over the photo.  There are three embellishment clusters that form the visual triangle around the photo and the colors I felt balanced from the top and the bottom of the layout.  Due to all the very linear cuts, the rectangles and squares, I thought it was really important to bring in other shapes; therefore, I used circles, scalloped borders and that top note design to soften the layout.  I find that this is particularly important when using one of the photo collages as the collage itself adds many 90 degree angles to the layout.

There was no video for this layout as I finished it without turning on the camera.

Update, or as I like to call it, where the hell have I been....

So, I had this idea that I would start my own website.  What a major disaster!  I never got it to be what I wanted it to be, simply because crafting is a seriously part-time endeavor for me and I don't have the time to figure out Wordpress and web design and everything else that comes with having your own domain.  I may try again in the future if my priorities change, but right now, I'd like to spend more time crafting and less time trying to figure out technology - I'm not the most technologically advanced person in the world, let's just be honest.  So in the next few weeks, I'll be going through the posts that were on my other blog and adding those creations to this one and hopefully, I'll add some new things here, as well. 

I'm in a time of self-reflection regarding goals and what I want to achieve, a schedule for this blog and my youtube channel will be a part of that goal setting.

Let's see what I come up with.

Stay tuned.....

(If you want more information into my life, you can check out my family journal blog and if you want more insight into the thoughts that bang around in my head, you can check out my personal blog.  Neither have been updated in a very long time, but I'm looking to change that very soon!!)

Layout Share: With Gratitude (Thank You Kristie)

A follower of my blog wrote me one day after hearing that I needed some Stampin Dimensionals.  She asked if she could send me some, I said, "Sure!" What she sent me blew me away.  If you're looking for a Stampin Up Demonstrator, I would recommend Kristie.

Two Peas in a Bucket, Haul - March 15, 2013

Don't you hate it when you place an order one day and then the next day, you get an email from Two Peas telling you that what you wanted is back in stock - so then you have to, HAVE TO, place another order before it sells out again.  Yep, that was me this week.  So, two orders...and here's the haul - though I must have been on drugs or completely sleep deprived when I ordered some of this stuff - take a look in the video:


KTK: February, 2013: Part Irish, All Trouble

(Layout 3 of 4 of the February 2013, Kill the Kit Series.  I subscribe to the Studio Calico scrapbooking kit and am determined to use up most of one kit before the next one arrives.)

I've had this St. Patrick's Day photo of WTK in my pile of "to be scrapped" for a long time.  Since I needed to find a way to use the green paper that I didn't like, I decided what better way to use green than with a St. Patrick's Day photo.

Stew is constantly making me laugh.  On one of our first trips to St. Michael's, we went to the Maritime museum and they had this sign for "duck" - Stew did what the sign said he should, he ducked.  Crazy guy.
