If you’re following along from the beginning, you should have just arrived from Becky’s blog …if you’re just joining us, welcome – either way – enjoy the hop!!
Here’s a look at one of my layouts that went up in the garden recently. One of our garden themes this month was “school.” Instead of creating a “back-to-school” layout (which was my first inclination), I decided to create a layout with the photos Brad took at my high school reunion last summer.
You can see more details, including links to the products I used by clicking HERE!
Ever since the day I first saw one of Jana Eubank’s layouts, I was smitten.
Then I saw her amazing creative space and I was jealous.
Then I decided to just be happy for her instead of jealous…and I went right back to being smitten!
Here’s a teensy sampling of her amazing work:
Jana has such a cute, clean style and super cute handwriting. She is a pro at mixing patterned papers perfectly. If you aren’t familiar with Jana’s work, check out her Two Peas gallery HERE. And if you ARE familiar with Jana’s work, you know you want to see everything again – so check out her gallery HERE! ;)
Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us, Jana! :)
Look what’s back in stock again! I love these wood veneer people!
I am loving the new Handmade Holiday collection
especially these memo pockets:
The Sweet Life True Happiness Stamp
I’ve purchased almost every piece of the Cakewalk Collection
Isn’t the elephant on this Chip N Stick sheet the cutest?
And finally, I am loving these digital journaling cards
This is always the favorite part of our monthly blog hops – the giveaway! This month I am thrilled to be able to give away a spot in a brand new workshop created by a very talented gal, Jen Gallacher.
Jen is an amazing scrapbooker, but an even more amazing story teller/journal writer. I always love reading the journaling on her pages and love to learn from her. Here’s the official description of her class:
Memories fade quickly and making sure we include all our stories within our scrapbooks can seem daunting. In this Mini Workshop, Garden Girl Jen Gallacher shares her approach for meaningful journaling. Jen is a dedicated journal keeper and has kept personal journals for over 30 years (ever since she was old enough to write). Now she combines her love of record keeping with scrapbooking! This journaling-centered class covers topics from holidays, to day-to-day events, to family moments, and several often forgotten subjects.
Chapter 1: Special Events
Chapter 2: Day-to-Day Living
Chapter 3: Stories to Remember
Each chapter includes 10 BRAND NEW layouts for a total of 30 layouts. An instructional video is provided for each chapter in which Jen discusses her philosophy on journaling each memory, as well as, her creative approach to journaling design. Each chapter video highlights the start-to-finish process of one of the chapter layouts. Watch Jen select the photos, journal her story, and complete a layout all under 30 minutes!
Beyond mere journaling, Jen discusses challenges to telling the story, creative methods for incorporating journaling on the page, and product suggestions for a fresh approach to journaling design. A helpful PDF is provided for each chapter and combines into a complete, comprehensive guide to meaningful journaling. Each layout is highlighted on its own page and includes the complete supply list, a close-up photo, and the approach to both documenting the story and the design of the journaling. Additional materials found within the PDF include topic ideas, journaling product ideas, and tips and tricks for journaling.
Whether you're an experienced writer looking to incorporate journaling into your scrapbooks, or you struggle with knowing what to say on your pages, this workshop's for you! Never leave "words unsaid" again!
The content of this workshop will be available immediately upon purchase. The lessons are available for you to work at your own pace and upon purchase can be accessed in the "Workshops" section under "Classes & Events." A private message board forum is also available to ask questions of both Jen and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!
