My Calendar Week blogging over at write.click.scrapbook is concluded. On Day 1, I talked about planning for a wall calendar; on Day 2 I showed you how I get my wall calendars done; Day 3 was all about desktop calendars; on Day 4 I talked about how to use calendars in mini albums and Project Life; and finally on Day 5 I shared some inspiration for how to use calendars in scrapbook pages.
Here are a couple of projects I made for Calendar Week. This page was inspired by a calendar grid design.
There's a great new Feature at The Lilypad - Trend Watch! This week's theme is wood. There's a challenge too if you want to play along for a prize! So I made a new page using some of the gorgeous September BYOC that I hadn't had the time to play with yet (how did it happen that half of the month is gone already??).
The weather has definitely cooled down around here. We had to turn on the heating a couple of days this past week.. I don't mind it one bit. I am looking forward to my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season! :)
I am so excited to share the latest collection at Digital Design Essentials!
This collection was literally made for me :), and it's perfect to scrap all my food photos (and you know I have a ton of those!)! :) I made this page with a recent baking experiment, and I also started using the brushes in my Project Life album - they are the perfect overlay for food photos!
I had a scrap-fest last night and made three pages. :) One is for the write.click.scrapbook October gallery so it will be two weeks before I can share it, but the other two are done with brand new products that are 20% off today. First off, the last installment in the Days of the Week collection by Mari Koegelenberg and Sugarplum Paperie:
And here's my page:
Love our little corner of the world! Next up, an adorable fall kit by Jenn Barrette!
I am in love with these colors! Seriously, gorgeous kit! I used it to scrap a picture I took the other day of a funny squirrel in our garden. :)
This squirrel kept running around and acting funny, until he stopped in this position for a bit. Seriously cracked me up! ;)
Finally Friday! I have a group meeting tomorrow morning at 8 AM with my classmates, but I am still very glad that this week is over. I cannot believe how fast fall is getting here! Today's new kits at The Lilypad are perfect to document this season! First up, a new collection by Sahlin Studio:
I am so in love with that deep blue color, paired with yellow. And the wood elements in this paper are gorgeous!
Next, there is something very special.. an entire collection by template queen Amy Martin!
Have you checked out the September gallery at write.click.scrapbook? This month's theme is "palette-able": we had to come up with a palette for our pages. I was super intimidated at the assignment, but then I just started playing, and I ended up having lots of fun! And I love how my page turned out! :)
I decided to get the palette from my photo - green + orange, then I broke out the watercolors (these and these) and added pink and blue and silver to the mix. Here are some details:
Do you usually think of the palette for your page ahead of time, or do you just go with the flow? What are your favorite colors to scrap with? I love bright colors, and I think all my pages have some pops of color in them, I cannot help myself from adding color! :)
