That One Time My Life of Scrapbooking Was Proved Worthwhile

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 09/28/2015 - 00:00

I've been going through all my old scrapbooks, scanning the pages and then taking them apart and redoing them into something smaller and more concise. This has been an enjoyable and freeing process, but the icing on the cake came yesterday when I ripped a scrap I had saved off the page. When I turned it around I saw my name scrawled all over the back. However, something about this wasn't quite right. And then I realized this piece of paper was from my sophomore year of college, almost two years before Jordan and I even started dating.

New Pick Your Pixels: Autumn Day

It's an exciting day! The designers have a new collaboration for you! There's nothing I love more than working on a collab. I love seeing everything come together and this month is not a disappointment. The weather here is starting to cool off. There's a chill in the air, and these designs perfectly match the quiet beauty that comes in the fall.

July 2015 Pocket Pages

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 09/10/2015 - 00:00

July was a bit lighter on the layouts than previous months, and I also enjoyed making a few more regular layouts. Being able to mix the pocket pages and the regular layouts really helps keep things fresh when trying to stay on top of documenting an entire year. If I'm feeling lazy, I can just stick everything in the pocket space, and when that gets boring I can use the entire 12x12 space to do whatever I want.

New Bundle: Diamonds

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 09/07/2015 - 00:34

This bundle was directly inspired by a spread I was trying to complete for June. I was really stuck trying to finish up my layouts. I had all the photos laid out, but could not figure out how to decorate. Eventually I realized that the pages I set to be opposite each other just didn't match and so I couldn't find a kit to match both sides. So throwing time to the wind, I switched two pages and everything came together. Well, I first I had to make this bundle to suit these photos which were clamoring so loudly for this bundle I had to stop everything and make it.

August 2015 in Photos

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 09/04/2015 - 00:00

On the last day of August it suddenly felt like fall had arrived. After months of straight sunshine, the clouds rolled it, dropped some rain and have been hanging around, bring with them a fresh feeling in the air that says, "fall is just around the corner."

I'll admit that summer is not one of my favorite months. The relentless sun and heat is not something I like to experience for longer than a week, so the clouds rolling in was definitely a relief for me. I've already eaten soup twice, and I'm day dreaming about eating some more...
