Hi all! Kay here with a few weeks of Life Documented using the new Daily Grind collection. I LOVE this new line. I have done at least 8 weeks with it, and feel it pulls together quickly and easily. Although I have other holiday lines to work with, I love how I could get a Christmas feel with Daily Grind! Time was short over the last month, so these are super-simple weeks that came together in a flash. That is my idea of success! Here is another (BUSY) week in December. As always I used my Brown Faux Leather album... Continue reading

Hi all! Kay here with a few weeks of Life Documented using the new Daily Grind collection. I am IN LOVE with this new line. I have done the last 4 weeks with it, and feel it pulls together quickly and easily. Here are two weeks in October. While this isn't a fall line, it worked perfectly with the fall colors of the week! Left Side: Sorry about the elk picture. My DH is so proud though! LOL! Right Side: The colorful Viewmaster cut makes me so happy! Another week in October. More fall fun! Left Side Right Side To...

Hi all! Kay here with a Life, Documented week to share, as well as a layout. I was fortunate enough to work with the Kiwi Lane templates, and used them on both. I used Smarty Pants for both my week and my layout as well, as it was back to school for both me and my daughter. Here is the full week. On the left side I used a Kiwi Lane template to create an arrow where I placed letter stickers. And on the right side, I wanted some journaling so I used this template which I cut out of...

Hi all! Kay here, letting you know I love Sn@p! My weeks come together so quickly when I use this line, and the colors just make me happy! To make my life easier, I take out all of my Sn@p! goodies and draw only from those products. The fewer decisions, the more I get done. It's probably why I am still caught up, and have been for the year and a half I've been documenting this way. Here is one week at the end of the school year. I used a calendar card for the dates, and a plain card... Continue reading

Hi all! Kay here with a few weeks of Life Documented. I don't know about you, but summer just flew by! I am having panic attacks about school starting. I'm really glad though that I took the time to record all of our summer fun. Here is Week 26. We went camping that week and had a blast! For extra space for all of our weekly events, I included one of the 6x8 smaller pages, with 2 3x4's and 1 4x6. In this full page, it's on the right side. Here is the left side without the insert. Here is... Continue reading

Hi all! Kay here with another installment of Life Documented. For these two weeks I used a combination of the 24/7 line, and some Maya Road goodies. Because of Memorial Day I had a lot of pictures, so on week 22 I also used a smaller pocket page for my overflow. Let's get started! Here is Week 21. On the left you can see I used the more traditional pocket page, using Design 3. I've been documenting life for the last two years now, and at this point I am excited to mix it up a bit. So as you...

Sometimes I have serious creative block, AKA a severe lack of mojo. So this month I am sharing one of my tried-and-true methods of kick-starting my creativity. In this layout using the 24/7 Collection I did a random collection of shapes around the photo, further embellishing each shape once in place. I find that embellishing in smaller blocks/pieces is less intimidating when creativity wanes. Another technique I use is to block my layouts. Simply put, just use rectangles and squares to fill the space. (Can you tell I'm a math teacher?) LOL! I used Vintage Bliss on this page about... Continue reading
