Digital Scrapbooking Day 2014 :: The Happenings

Happy Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day weekend!!

This year it seems extra special to me because I am diving back in to creativity after maternity leave and it feels like a big, warm, cozy hug.

I so love this time of year when those of us who love to make memories and keep them, play with paper or pen, document our stories and explore our creativity get to have so much fun celebrating our love for scrapbooking and storytelling.

Here’s Everything You Need To Know about what’s happening for Plant Your Story this weekend (all images are linked).

Memory Pockets Monthly :: A Monthly Subscription for Pockets and Memory Keeping

This is something new.  This is something fresh.  This is something inspired by and dedicated to the documentation of our lives and the keeping of our memories.  This is something I am SO.THRILLED. to be a part of.

Meet Memory Pockets Monthly.  It’s a NEW Pocket Scrapbooking Subscription for pocket scrapbookers brought to you by The Lilypad and an incredible line-up of designers including Allison Pennington, Designs by Lili, Sahlin Studio, Sara Gleason, Stolen Moments Design, and Valorie Wibbens.

Memory Pockets Monthly captures the best aspects of pocket scrapbooking: the heart of documenting everyday stories and the simplicity of scrapbooking them.  These products are available as digital files, but they are wonderfully suited to using for paper and hybrid pages and projects.

Gather is the first collection available in the Memory Pockets Monthly subscription.  And I confess: I am quite smitten with it.  I so love the inspiration for it: stories of thanks and Autumn and family and of gatherings.  And I love the palette..it is the perfect balance of warm and cool, a lovely visual representation of Autumn color.

In addition to the main kit, each designer has put together various add-ons – perfect for digital, paper or hybrid crafting and storytelling.

Here are the add-ons I’ve created to complement the Gather collection.  I was inspired by the idea of comings together, of gatherings.  Of family and giving thanks and of all things Autumn.

And lastly, the one I am Most Excited About.  Meet Arboretum {Gather}.

sgleason_arboretumgatherfull_preview

Arboretum is a concept I have been mulling and honing and daydreaming about for the better part of two years.  And Memory Pockets Monthly seemed like the perfect home for this line of products.

Arboretum is fresh line of layered template products designed to give you MORE..more inspiration, more creative options for documenting your stories, and more time for memory making.

Each Arboretum release includes the “bare” template sketch design + a “dressed” version of that design + all the bits used to dress up the page design.

So:

  • you can either use the template with any products of your choice OR
  • you can use the nearly complete version and just add your photos for a super fast way to document your stories in a pretty way OR
  • you can use the pieces to create any kind of project or page that inspires you.

Here’s a closer peek at Arboretum {Gather}:

The “bare” templates, perfect for using as you would any tradition page design template, customizing as you are inspired:

The “dressed” templates, for super fast documentation.  You can use these as you would a quick page, really.  Simply add your photos and any details.

And Arboretum {Gather} also comes with all the element pieces separately.  You can use these to create any page or project as you are inspired.

Here’s a smattering of Gather inspiration.

I just LOVE the possibilities that live in this concept.  And I am so inspired by the beautiful pages and projects I’ve seen so far.  I hope you will love Gather and Memory Pockets Monthly as much as I do!

Happy Scrapping!
