Birthday Shenanigans

Needing a break from work, I decided to put together two pages to document my recent birthday. Of course, once I got started, I found myself designing my own cards to use. Nothing like not doing work to only find yourself doing work. ;)


I've been in the mood for black and white designs lately, so I kept the cards clean and classic. From there, I printed all of my photos 2x2. I added stenciling, stamping, and ink drops to my background page and onto the journaling card. Then it was a simple matter of adhering everything into place.


If you like the Birthday cards I've designed and used, you can download them for free right here! You get all 4 cards as a ready to print PDF, and also as individual PNG files in case you want to add some color. I hope to see what you create with them!

Welcoming Spring with Grow Wild

Happy Thursday! The newest kit, Grow Wild, is now available in the shop along with some coordinating embellishments and stamps! This kit was inspired by my love of nature and created with a fresh color scheme, a focus on growth, and a splash of hope for those less than stellar moments.


This is a layout I made in my everyday notebook using the Grow Wild stamp and die cuts. I can't wait to experiment more with the large floral border stamp!


If you know me, you know I love stamping and I had a lot of fun working with the All the Moments set to make my patterned background, title, and an embellishment.


I had begun this year's memory keeping with the plan to only use Traveler's Notebooks, but they can sometimes feel limiting to me. The worry of getting too bulky, having inks show through, and the stress of a bound pages has had me itching for mini layouts like I made last year. So what else could I do, but go where my creativity took me?

As you can see, I've created a few projects already, but I'm excited to be inspired by what you make! Thank you so much for your support, because of it there are some amazing new products coming to the shop and I can't wait to share more with you. In the meantime, happy crafting!
