some days are …

  • green and lush and full of hope, vitality and growth and all the lovely, lively things
  • dark and gloomy and the harder, heavier things weigh heavy upon us
  • bright and yellow and orange and full of joy and playfulness
  • rainbow days full of highs and lows and all the colorful hues of real life…
  • and the Lilypad blog hop is celebrating and exploring All The Feels in a collection designed just for National Scrapbook Day 2017. 

Yes…that’s right!  (and Yay and Hooray!) The Hullaballoo has commenced. The Lilypad Designers have created a fresh series of free downloads to kick of this year’s {inter}National Scrapbook Day festivities!  And so you may have found your way here from Leah’s blog as you hop along collecting these fun and fabulous bits.

Per Diem

“For each day”. Per Diem.

Every day we live our story. From moment to moment our narrative reveals itself through events and happenings, through circumstances, through relationships. Story lives in our routines and in all the “ordinary” things. Story lives in perceptions and emotions and interactions. It lives in our choices and how we spend our time. It is the daily details.

And Per Diem is all about keeping those everyday memories and documenting their story…for each day. Inspired by the little moments that weave themselves into biffer tapestries of Story, the Per Diem collection features cheerful color, classic and versatile story centric pieces perfect for documenting your daily stories. 

Meet the Per Diem collection.

Archetype

Since the start of my love story with Storytelling and Memory Keeping, I have felt a drawn to documenting the details that reveal our every day personal story lines, full of personal idiosyncrasies and nuances, backstories and the painting of personality portraits. In short, the intersection of people and circumstances and feelings and happenings that define us. My hope is that what makes us, us..will shine through in our memory keeping through our words and photographs.  That everything that is quintessentially our own will live there in our art and stories.

And it’s this heart’s hope that has been driving all of my design work and it is the foundation for my latest collection, Archetype.

An archetype is a very typical example of a certain person or thing. A prototype, the standard, if you will. The quintessential description and definition. In our personal scrapbooking we illustrate our Personal Archetypes by documenting the personalities and characters of our loved ones (and ourselves). We capture all the little details that make them quintessentially themselves.

It is the spirit of The Personal Archetypes that has inspired this fresh collection. It is perfect for documenting the everyday, creating personality portraits, or keeping memories that celebrate what makes your loved ones so special.

Meet the Archetype collection.

Fresh Seeds | Good Things

It’s that energizing time of year – that time of beginnings – when I love to set my thoughts on all my Good Things: my goals, my hopes, my joys, my blessings and give them fresh focus.

It is the spirit of that kind of intentional focus of thought and action that has inspired my latest collection of papers and elements, Good Things. Fresh and brisk colors married with deeper, cozier hues and classic element pieces with a touch of whimsy makes Good Things a versatile go-to for documenting fresh starts, setting word compasses, and choosing the Good Things.

Meet Good Things.
