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.

Happy fresh month.  Happy BYOC.  Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day.  Happy Happy.  So very much to be happy about!  This time of year is one of my most favorite.  I just adore the cooler weather, the celebration of creativity, the bubbling anticipation for the holiday season that is just around the corner.  And the sense of gratitude that covers it all.

And the beginning of November is FULL of all of that.  This month’s Build Your Own Collab at The Lilypad is another stellar collection. It is a burst of color and warm and creativity. (more…)
