It's All Relative

This layout is one of my new favorites. Not so much because I think it's terrifically artistic or genius on my part, but because it shows off some of my new favorite photos, favorite memories. These pics were taken at my family's Easter Sunday get-together. They depict one of our typical times together lately, relaxing and enjoying each other. In fact, I'm looking forward to another such time in a just a few weeks, with my siblings and their kids. Can't wait!

Layout uses Fancy Pants' My Family papers and cut-outs.

Flower Child

Simply put, I love BoBunny. Love their papers, love their stickers, love their embellishments, love their blog, love them.

So when I finally got my hands on the Flower Child line, I instantly wanted to play. Here are a couple of layouts I made using this fun stuff.

This first layout shows off one of my favorite pictures - My sweet niece Sophie on Easter Sunday. Precious!

And the second layout shows off a photo of me and two of my nieces as we prepared for the Parkinson's 5K walk in April. Here we are, all poised to run - we collectively finished last. But we had such a blast together!

Both layouts are based on sketches, one from PageMaps' May edition, and the other from Nic Howard's Dimensional Details class. Both - fun to work with.

Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Welcome to the MemoryWorks Christmas in July Blog Hop! You are here:

Lisa <--------------------------

This hop will take you through thirteen MemoryWorks consultants' blogs, where you'll be able to glean new ideas and inspiration for your Christmas projects, as well as get the opportunity to win some fantastic PRIZES! Who doesn't love that? So let's get started...

First of all, if you're not familiar with MemoryWorks, you'll want to check out our blog as well as our Simple Stories site, where you can learn about our exclusive, easy, guilt-free approach to scrapbooking.

So let's get to it. I've got a mini-tutorial to share with you for making a Christmas organizer/planner. The original concept for this planner uses a manila folder, but, lacking a new one of these, I chose to use two sheets of kraft cardstock. I scored them at 4" horizontally all the way across the pages, then at 4" vertically once. Fold the bottom score line up to form a pocket at the bottom of each page, then fold accordian-style across the width of the two pages. (See photo below). You will need to cut off one 4" section of one of the sheets of cardstock, then overlap the two pages so that you have 4 panels, then glue in place. Decorate using any patterned papers and embellishments that you like. I used MemoryWorks' December Express Kit to create mine. The kit included everything I needed to make this super-gorgeous, super-blingy planner.

If you'd like to use my inserts, click here to print them: Planner Inserts

You should check out the Express Kits...they come jam-packed with patterned papers, cardstocks, ribbons, buttons, and tons of embellishments! You can subscribe to have the kits shipped to you every month (my favorite option -there's always TONS in each kit that I can use right away), or purchase them ala carte after all subscriptions have shipped.

Now...on to the prize! Leave a comment on this post between now and midnight on Sunday, July 4 to win this set of 8 all-occasion note cards and envelopes. I created these using Basic Grey's Kioshi patterned papers, and I've left the sentiments off for you to add. Sorry, I can't ship internationally at this time, so USA entrants only, please.

Okay, so leave your comment, then hop on off to see Mariah! And don't forget to go back to the beginning (Sue's blog) to vote for your favorite blog and be entered for the GRAND PRIZE!!!

Thanks for visiting today!
