Pixel & Co. | April Guest CT

This year, I have become sort of a digi scrapping – challenge addict. I try to limit the number of stores where I participate so things don’t become too overwhelming. I love The Lily Pad’s monthly and weekly challenges. And I love Pixel & Co.’s all new monthly challenges.  Pixel & Co. also offers weekly challenges with their 3 way challenges.

I get so many pages done each month by participating in these challenges. And there are benefits too. Yes, I said it … scrapping with benefits. Total win.

It varies by store but generally you get a % off coupon to go shopping and a chance to be  part of their Creative Team for a month as a guest. So fun. For April … I’m a Guest CT at Pixel & Co.

Here are some of the pages I’ve created while guesting at this fantastic store:

Memory Keeping … Digital Project Life | Week 6 & 7 with new Amy Tangerine Plus One

You guys! I am seriously so excited to share this amazing kit with you today …

it’s the Amy Tangerine Plus One Mini Kit … but there is nothing mini about it. It rocks big time!

There is lots of white and black … with the trendy handwritten brushed look, bold colors that can be be used for a really bright layout or toned down with just bits of color depending on which journal cards you use, and just the funnest little sayings & artwork.  I think it is safe to say I am GAH, GAH over this kit.

It is on sale at DigitalProjectLife.com. Go check it out … along with all the Creative Team’s lovely pages.

Here is how Week 6 came together:

Memory Keeping … My Digital Scrapbook Gallery

Hello … I hope you are easing into your week, now that Monday is behind us.

Today I realized I have not been very good at sharing my favorite digital layouts here … despite the fact that I’ve been creating so many each month in 2014. Seriously … I think this has been a record so far for the most pages created.

If you like my style you can follow my layouts on my Pinterest board or at my gallery over at My Scrapbook Art.

I won’t bore you with too many, but here a few faves from my gallery over at The Lilypad:

Memory Keeping … Digital Project Life | Strawberry Edition

So the days are lighter, longer here on the East Coast. Loving that. The snow has tapered off. Loving that. But it still so darn cold. NOT loving that!

This week Digital Project Life released the all new & beautifully designed Strawberry Edition. It is so bright and colorful, that I needed to do a little “event” scrapping page. So I took a break from my weekly PL spreads to pair up the amazing Strawberry Edition with these fun photos from last year’s mini Summer Kickoff vacation in VT. Until Spring finally decides to grace us with her presence, I will live vicariously through these photos and this kit! Remember, as always … it is on sale for the week at DigitalProjectLife.com. Go check it out … along with the Creative Team’s lovely pages. There’s tons of inspiration over there for this kit!

Memory Keeping … Digital Project Life | Week 5 with new Amy Tangerine Mini Kit

So happy that yesterday was Daylight Savings Day here in the States. I will gladly give up an hour of sleep on Sunday morning to have that “extra hour” of daylight in the evenings! It was lovely to see the sun just setting around 7:30 pm last night! I have to admit though, this was a rough Monday morning … so dark that it made it very hard to get up and start the day. But Daylight Savings is a sure sign that Spring is coming … now we just need the weather to cooperate!

In the meantime, I’ve been busy keeping up with my Digital Project Life pages … today I have Week 5 to share with you using the latest release Amy Tangerine’s Mini Kit! It’s perfect for Spring with it’s bright yellows and fun color palette. It is on sale at DigitalProjectLife.com. Go check it out … along with the Creative Team’s lovely pages.

Here is how Week 5 came together:

Memory Keeping … Digital Project Life 2014 | Weeks 3 and 4

Hello. I am just getting back into a routine after a long 6 day break from school. We had a snow day, followed by a Friday, Monday US holiday and tuesday Sup Conference Day … just teachers go in, not students. And … it pretty much snowed … every. single. day. I know the true definition of “going stir crazy”.

But that is over and I need to move on …

Today I want to share some more Digital Project Life pages from Weeks 3 & 4 for 2014. I am still using my Collect App to organize and keep track of all my daily photos. I still use my PicTapGo App and apply my custom recipe to my photos … so they all have the same look throughout my pages (and my entire book for the year). And I am settling in to my 2014 style for my PL pages this year. Basic white, plain background, and very little fuss and extras. I want the photos and the journaling to tell the story of our everyday moments.

I’m also trying to keep this PL 2014 just the little everyday photos taken with my iPhone. So far I’m 100% on track with that. I’m saving my fancy DSLR photos for other pages.

Here is how Week 3 & 4 came together:

Memory Keeping … nailing down my PL look for 2014

It’s February and let me tell you, I have been stressing over how I am going to do my 2014 Digital Project Life pages. Speaking of Digital Project Life, have you visited the blog lately? We recently welcomed the amazing Casey to our team for 2014 … this girl’s photography is so drool worthy.

You can read more about Casey and the rest of the team on the blog.

Back to my Digi PL look for 2014. I knew I wanted simple, clean, lots of white, a little touch of color, and for all the photos to have the same photo treatment. I think this will work for me. Most of my photos are coming from my iPhone. I started using the Collect App to gather, date and make notes for all my Project Life photos. I love it! It even reminds me at the end of the day to make sure I took a photo. The little square photos with the white background and calendar style date are made to look like a Collect App photo that has been exported. I love how clean it looks on my pages, but it was too much for all my photos, so I am going to be using it sparingly as a design element.

Here’s Week 1 (I posted page 1 of Week 1 last week, to correspond to the new Maggie Holmes Mini kit that was released then, sorry for the double post.)
