Layout Critique: The Rules

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 02/28/2013 - 05:55

UPDATE: After reading through the comments from my previous post about starting a layout critique, I wanted to make one thing clear:

These rules will only apply to the layouts that I post here in the blog that are specifically marked for layout critique. We will focus on 1 layout per week. Of course these tips can be used when you are commenting on layouts in general, but since it does take time and effort, I think if we focus our efforts the payoff will be greater. If things go well, I can always increase the frequency of posting.

New: Palestine Bundle

Palestine Bundle

A little over a year ago Jordan and I were able to join Jordan's father, Doug, on a trip to Israel and the West Bank. Doug helps lead a three-week study abroad class for a university in the States called "Leaders for Change", which travels to Jordan and Israel, and they let us tag along.

Valentine's Day & the Circus

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 02/18/2013 - 23:15

Jordan and I celebrated Valentine's Day with the new Die Hard movie. While I don't generally go out of my way to see an action movie, I make special allowances for Bruce Willis, and a new Die Hard movie is, in my opinion, an occasion worthy of a great date night.

New: FB Freebie & Vintage Music Brushes

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 02/05/2013 - 23:58

I've just added three little brush kits, for the music fans out there. I pulled the images from some old documents, so they aren't super crisp, but for a vintage/distressed look they are perfect! The third set has the longest continuous snippets, while the first 2 have smaller bits. I've also added a new Facebook freebie if you'd like to test them out first.

Improving Digital Scrapbooking Skills

Getting Started Digital Scrapbooking

Yesterday I was browsing through folders of my old work when I realized that I have a whole year's worth of work that I've been ignoring and that needs to be updated and uploaded to the site (a lot of it is here, but you can't easily tell that it's related). So you can except a lot of mini kits and their assets to be appearing here.

New: Vienna

Vienna Kit

I'm excited to be re-releasing my Vienna Bundle! The kits are up, and the assets will be coming over this next week. Midweek I have some exciting music brushes I'll be adding (perhaps a few more than I really needed to make...) and a new Facebook freebie.
