Yep, I’m still going at it!!! I’m totally sold on this project, it’s probably been bad for my budget because I keep buying more pocket scrapping stuff… but I’m excited by my results. If you’re new, head over here to read all about how I have ditched the preconceived notions about pocket scrapping (like a double pager has to equal one week,) to just do my own thing and LOVE IT!
This is just through the 9th. On the 10th, I came down with a terrible head cold that I’m *still* trying to shake. It took me a whole day just to scrap one page when I was at my worst with my head cold, but I did it!
Like I said in my last update, pocket scrapping relaxes me now that I don’t worry about keeping to a time constraint or other pocket scrapping notion. And for the first time in my digiscrapping LIFE — I have been consistently mixing products. Normally I stick to one kit or collection, now I’m mixing in these awesome journaling cards by LJS Designs to make up for the lack of journaling cards that “work” for me in the kits I’m using.
And… I totally love using internet memes like in the page above. It fits Holly perfectly, the whole family got such a kick out of it that we’re still referring to Holly’s “organic diet.”
It’s the journaling cards that have been my biggest hang up. Even in Mommyish & Just Jaimee’s recent pocket scrapping collabs (like the one in the page above,) there just aren’t enough 4×6 journaling cards in them for me in the orientation I need or a design that works for me. I settled for the two cards in the above layout. Which is why this set by LJS Designs has been so invaluable, the colors go with almost any kit and they’re fun while still being basic enough to fit the design style of the kits… I just feel like using something different every few layouts. I hope she makes another set soon!
Even though I’m using lots of different kits, I am trying to keep to using the same kit per “double pager” — if that makes sense. If I do get these printed, I want the pages to match the ones opposite of them in colors and kit. I totally failed at that with these last two pages… oh well! Messing up once in a while with keeping to that, isn’t a big deal.
But did you notice what’s special about that last page?? I got to see Studio Romy and Crafty Button Designs on the 9th!!! Amber posted about going to the Celtic Festival… and I knew Jeff would love going to something like that (even though we think he might be german/polish) so we did! And Romy came along too!
It was awesome, we have to get back together again soon!! I love meeting my digi-friends in real life!
That’s it for March so far, I’ve been so busy with the Oscraps Birthday celebrations and working on new products… that I haven’t had a chance to catch up!
