My son is got his permit!

Today was a great day!  We woke up early and headed to the Department of Licensing   My boy is growing up, he got his permit today!  He was so nervous! 

When we stopped at the store the man said, “I think he was more nervous than you are!”

I didn’t go all out on the elements, just threw together what I had for a quick layout!  I bet some of you have experienced this or about to!  It was a lot of fun!

Hope to see you again soon!

Hybrid Scrappers or just fun stuff here is inspiration for you!

Hi this is Lissa Marie, here to do my first post for “Just Jaimee“!  How exciting!  I thought, “Oh what to do, what to do, as I had many things come to mind, at the last-minute I decided to go with this journal book for my project life, organization.  Perfect timing at the beginning of the year!

I found a page template on Pinterest from last year, but I don’t know the blog I found it at, during my desperate search I didn’t find anything like I wanted for my new journal this year.  So I got busy in PS and made one for my book pages, I sure wished I could share with you but I don’t have one for every week.  I just typed in the week and printed on 8.5 x 14 paper, double sided.  The important part is the fun embellishments that I made for the book.  I love making books with scrap mat board, and binding them with the Cinch machine.  I then printed out the cover with Jaimee’s designs on heavy card stock, and printed out some embellishments on glossy sticker paper to decorate it, leaving tabs f
or quick stops and notes.

I wished I could say I used my Silhouette Cameo, but I don’t have the settings down for this kind of sticker paper and ended up hand cutting them out.  No biggy because many people don’t have a cameo and would have to do that anyway.

I hope you find this project useful and fun for your own kind of journals.  I have made many with just lines and decorated them with digital elements!  It is fun, now I have to stick to the plan on USING it!  Jaimee gives me NO excuse NOT to scrapbook!  I am so excited to be on her team, looking forward to bringing you alot of inspiration!

Celebration is over and now it’s scraptime!

Hello everyone.  I know post have been pretty sparse but I do have some catching up to do getting some mojo back.  Hoping to come up with some YouTube tutorials for Photoshop if you like and more.  I had just gained a position with Just Jamie in the LilyPad, an amazing digital designer that will be having me to hybrid projects once a month.  I love, love, love her work.  I am not to excited about what I did with this one.. but that is my fault throwing things together in a hurry.  Bad habit of mine on my layouts. But hey it works, you know how they say, don’t over think it, so I can move on, right?  So for those traditional scrappers this is a perfect easy layout for you or you can mix it hybrid.  This isn’t my post for her Design Team, I only did this one on my own for fun. I have something else up my sleeve with the project of the month!  This is from her Hunter story teller collection and it is amazing as if you click on the link you will see.  So proud to work with such a top designer!  Missing Juliana as well but I am sure that Jamie and I will get along just fine!

Testing out my new phone capabilities, OH MY… it’s alot to learn going from Apple to Android.  I am constantly on it learning new settings.  I don’t know why 3-5 different companies think they need to sync your photos to their servers including Google plus and more.  UGGGh!  If you have any tips on how to stop sync, because it will come back after you have stopped it, please post here to give any great tips you have.  I got a Galaxy Note 4 because I am in love with the sPen.  Disappointed in Apple not trying to compete with something like that as an artist.  If they ever do, I may just hook back up with Apple.  The size is nice but doesn’t fit my hands. I knew how to NOT sync anything with them so no worries there. I am sure you all don’t want to see my whole family life on Google plus!  lol  With that being said, I have cleaned it up!  

Well this was just a random post for the week, hope to see you much more this week as I am on vacation and plan to get some stuff done.   To much to toss or sell off!

Either that or get busy crafting again.   

If you are not already connected, I will see you next post or on Facebook!

Happy Crafting!

DCWV – Beginning to look alot like Christmas. LOVE this stack!

Merry Christmas everyone!

More Football digital layout from the Sweetshoppedesigns

Any fan of football would understand…

Today was a historical moment at our house, if you read the layout you will see.  I love it just because my son can’t STAND to admit he likes the Seahawks but it’s a challenge for him to admit after all these years that he will like the Seahawks again.   He has always been the opposite of what I say, I say black he says white I say chocolate he say vanilla and the kid LOVES chocolate!  So this is a huge deal for us, and funnier than you can imagine in a post.  

Journaling isn’t my strongest point in scrapbooking but there wasn’t enough room for this one to tell all but good enough!  He will KILL me when he see’s this post!  LOL  What an evil mother I am!

Goodbye 49rs

 

Sorry 49’r fans.  I still love having you all here too.  It’s just a game to me.  Fun and even more fun now that he is in high school ball.  I am always asking questions about the game and what they do, so I can learn what the importance of his role is in the game.  They said some awesome stuff about him in the banquet I was such a proud mom I wanted to stand up and cheer him on but I am sure he would have died of embarrassment.  It started out how quiet he was… didn’t think they were talking about my boy at first then the coach went further and further more towards how he performed, by the end of the year he really pulled through.  They had only 3 losses this whole year and he was a proud player to help be a winner.  He didn’t make the basketball team but after the banquet I actually got him into weight training classes after school and that is going to really boost his confidence.  Even better he is excited about something he planned on never doing!  He needs it for his runner’s knee and he will be lookin’ good for all those girls I am gonna have to chase off until he is old enough!  I am safe as long as sports are more important!  Teens are a blast!

I hope you had a great crafty weekend too.  Here we are trying to get ready for the holidays and it isn’t coming naturally for me.  It been a challenging month on my favorite months to craft from Halloween to Valentines day but hopefully I get some more mojo and able to post more inspiration for you, for new layouts and projects.  Have a wonderful week!

Me and my girl love selfies!

I have a photo booth app that we love to play with, today I wanted to be cheered on a grey day and take pictures of my sunshine.  She always wants me to be her model so we made an agreement.  Well those pics on her camera didn’t go so well, lol.   I have many more of her that I will post soon because she did some super cute poses that reminds me of our favorite song, “All about the base” by Meghan Trainor. She is sooo adorable.  This is probably a free download that I got somewhere in the years of scrappin’  I am sorry I don’t have the credits but I see Juno, “Let it go” It seemed perfect for this layout.

I love using multiple photos on a layout but maybe that is just my shooting style.  I hope you have enjoyed my post.. I hope I have inspired you to use many on a layout, your kids need to have photos of you too for the future.  It doesn’t seem important now but it really is.  Until next time.
