PL – March 6 -12

I’m still going strong with my family PL album. I did skip ahead to some weeks for creative team assignments but I’m slowly going back to weeks that I missed, like this one from back in March.

In order to stay on top of my PL I have opted for a minimalist design and approach to my memory keeping. Incorporating stamps is also one of my favorite technique, especially when I can stamp directly on my pictures. I have learned that this works best on matte or semi-gloss pictures.

Creating cohesive spread is also important to me. For this spread I repeated the alpha stamp and stars. I also kept a neutral color palette with teal and yellow accents.

I love using white journaling cards with crisp and clean designs. Love the minimalist design they bring to a spread, especially when my pictures are busy.

Love how the teal card coordinates perfectly with my daughter’s panda shirt. This played a big part of my design process.

As you can see my spread is rather simple but I have learned that when I need to get caught up or produce multiple spreads simple is best.

I've been part of the scrapbook industry for over 10 years. My love of paper started at a very young age when I started hoarding a collection of notepads and fruit scented pens. My love of scrapbooking and memory keeping evolved when I became a mother. Over the course of my creative career, I've had the pleasure of designing for various manufactures; I currently design for Ali Edwards and Gossamer Blue. My style is eclectic with a flair for mixing embellishments, creating layers and a love for white space. As of two years ago, I shifted her creative focus to documenting our family’s daily activities with Project Life.
