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!

PICTURE MY LIFE

Today I am going to do something different, Picture my Life pages that I have made from Dr Phil Scraps.  This is the “Later Skater” set, my boy is all boy and this fits him perfectlyPicturemyLife2

Her is the start page, I was toying with the idea of printing a black and white photo blending it on the top of when he was little.  He has loved sports for so long, I think he had the names and the stats down for the Seahawks by the time he was 4.  He loves baseball, football, basketball anything to do with sports he lives and breathes it.

Here is the back side of the opening page, he doesn’t skate board so I will be covering that up with a photo but I will keep the rest!   I love the little interviews the cards provide.

So now he is all grown up!  This is his best game ever.   My first time filling the pages, I printed my photos to small but I know better now!  He has 7 albums of him to himself, then when my daughter came along I slowed down on his albums and tried to give my daughter some of what he has but I haven’t really gotten close to what he went through having a mom as a budding photographer all his life.  He says he is retired, lol.

Later Skater is a great set, when you buy a set of “Picture My Life” themed cards, it comes with page protectors too.  Close to my heart has the best page protectors around in my opinion.  My next post will have the girly version “Chantilly”  I love love love.  As the term is coming to an end you will see these Picture My Life, pocket style scrapping.  Very excited to show of these cool moments even if it’s an every day moment!

Happy Crafting!
