STORY OF THE PAGE: I’m guest blogging at Studio Calico this week and created a page based on some digital products from their latest kit. When I saw the card that said , “It’s going to be hard,” I felt it was the perfect piece around which to build a story of transition and change. I do document stuff in our … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: The year was… oh hell, I’m not sure. 2005? Maybe 2006? And this was very likely an assignment for a special issue of Simple Scrapbooks magazine, probably for our Quizzes issue. The idea was simple: come up with a predetermined set of questions to be answered by two people. The twist? You answer the questions about them. … Read More

make a page monday | project life wrap up for 2014

I did it. I finished all of my pages for Project Life, Year Twenty-Fourteen. Now what? Okay, I should back up. Next, of course, will be getting a bound book made but as I was exporting all of my PSDs to JPEGs, I realized, “Oh crap! I need to have a cover for this book?” And I’ll be honest. I … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: We did a Christmas card photo shoot at the end of October and had some tasty little outtake photos and I wanted to make a page about it. I have come to both love and dread this day. Dread, only because I know my family may not love this process as much as I do. Sometimes … Read More

Instead of making a layout this week, I decided to play catch up again with my Project Life album. I am so looking forward to creating a printed book at the end of the year. One thing that really excites me: it will take up less space than a 12 x 12 album. I am truly out of space for albums … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: On October 19, Dan and I marked our 23 year wedding anniversary. It’s our tradition to exchange cards on these most auspicious of occasions. We generally eschew gifts and neither of us know exactly how that tradition took hold. But in any event, it’s all about that card. Plus, it saves money. One less yearly gift. Of … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: The day we left for Madison, we decided to try and re-create a photo from Aidan’s first day of Preschool. She was totally game for it. We realized, however, that she’s a lot taller than she was at four and it changed the way the shot was framed. But still, it was kind of cool to … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: I recently liked the UW-Madison Parent Program’s Facebook page. One day last week they shared a letter written by a parent of an incoming Freshman and I thought, “Hey! I wanna do one of those!” Ergo, a scrapbook page was thusly born. There should be more to this story but the fact is I am trying not … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: Aidan and Cole wrapped up their summer sports season with a national Ultimate tournament held in Blaine, Minn., two weekends ago. For those of you who don’t know Ultimate, it’s played with discs (also known as Frisbees). It’s like soccer and Frisbee all wrapped up into one. And it’s seriously such an awesome sport. We had a gorgeous weekend … Read More
