Fresh Seeds | Paperwhite {confetti}

I love little details on my scrapbook pages and scatters are one of my most favorite design details. Paperwhite {confetti} is the latest of my confetti collections, featuring vellum scatters that offer the perfect touch of light and subtle detail to your pages and projects.

The Paperwhite {confetti} collection includes 41 different scatters — no two scatters are exactly the same — in solid colors and a variety of mixes. Shapes include: circle, hexagon, star and heart. Perfect for adding that extra touch of detail, fun, whimsy or color to any layout, card or blog post in a more subtle way. Great for celebration pages, pages of imagination, or any every day story!

Fresh Seeds | Beech Tree

I think I find the greatest value in the documentation of everyday stories.  Maybe it’s because those little stories are the things that make our lives *full*.  The details, the conversations, the portraits of moments, the snapshots of character that reveal themselves in everyday happenings.  That’s precisely the kind of story that inspired my contribution to this month’s Build Your Own Collab collection at The Lilypad.

(Incidentally, I have to say.  This is one of those BYOC collections that makes my scrapbooking heart go pitter patter.  It really is full full full of beautiful contributions from the TLP designers.)

Inspired by the spirit of everyday storytelling, documenting the details, and leaving a legacy, the Beech Tree collection echoes the intent of the Beech Tree album which I created to document “in the life” stories.

The Beech Tree {elements} feature cohesive, colorful pieces and classic story-centric pieces for telling those everyday stories:

The coordinating paper collection includes 17 versatile papers in colorful yet restrained hues and patterns.  Meet Beech Tree {papers}:

Fresh Seeds | Plant Your Story: Journaled {volume three}, Plant Your Story: Titled {volume one}, and Sage page designs

One of my most favorite things to do is to play with design in my scrapbooking while still keeping the focus on The Story.  And so I find myself inspired by layers and play-with-paper and balance and journal spots working together seamlessly in one design.  And it’s that kind of spirit that lives in this week’s new releases.

Meet Plant Your Story: Journaled {volume three}:

Plant Your Story: Journaled {volume three}

This follow-up set of “journaled” templates focuses on the use of journal cards beyond the horizons of typical Project Life or pocket scrapbooking compositions.  I love journal cards even though I don’t typically scrap in pocket-scrapbooking ways. Still I love to use them to include journaling in my pages or to layer or to add interest in my designs using “filler” journal cards.

Also new this week is Plant Your Story: Titled {volume one}.  I find myself drawn to pages with strong title work and yet it is a facet of my own memory keeping that I sometimes neglect.  I find myself playing with titles and title work more often and with more “gusto” when I have a design that incorporates a title seamlessly.  These page designs were designed in the spirit of embracing “titling in design”.

And finally.  Fresh this week are the Sage page designs.  The Sage templates are designed in the spirit of play with paper, love for balance and clean lines in design, and the every day moment.

Fresh Seeds | Coconut Tree

I’ve always been drawn to stories of hoping and dreaming.  There is something so empowering about a person daring to believe in things, in others and in themselves.  I think it’s brave.  I think it’s bold.  I think it’s authentic. And so full of…color.  And those things shine BIG in this beautiful collection.

Coconut Trees have long been associated with tropical environments, beaches, islands and other places that people find themselves wandering away to in daydreams.  It’s the quintessential dreamy tree.  And so Coconut Tree seemed the botanical name choice for a kit about Dreams and Hopes and celebrating stories of imagination, following dreams and living boldly.  Coconut Tree features vibrant colors, hope{full} words, and a sense of happy.  It was unveiled as part of The Digi Files in July and now it’s come home to The Lilypad.

DigiScrap Parade May 2013 :: That’s Life

The DigiScrap Parade is a fresh “hopping” experience for scrapbookers and storytellers wherein they can “hop” about a series of blogs or Facebook pages to gather pieces to a coordinating collection to scrap their memories.  It is meant to be a sampling of products from wonderful designers in the community, offered quarterly.  I was happy to be a part of the inaugural hop (which is at once GINORMOUS and very beautiful).  For more information and for all the links to the hop, please stop by the DigiScrap Parade website.

Here’s my contribution to That’s Life:
