I’ve been so distracted lately that I haven’t even thought about or planned anything for Easter. Now that it’s just a few days away, I figured I better try and get myself in the mood for something since I know my daughter will want to decorate eggs and even though my kids are older, they still like to do egg hunts. I pulled out my April 2014 Martha Stewart Living magazine and that did the trick. Looking at all of those pretty pictures and creative ideas got my wheels turning, and while our celebration won’t be very fancy, it’s still great to find inspiration! I always like to visit the website when I read the magazine and find some of the articles to add to my pinterest boards. Some content is only in the magazine, but some of it can also be found online. Here are some of my favorites: Mini daffodils and clump moss make a sweet alternative to a candy-filled basket. Use stickers or punches to decorate eggs Marbleized eggs gourmet deviled eggs There’s even an app from Martha Stewart Living that lets you browse through 101 different eggs with step-by-step photos and video instruction. The app is only .99 cents in the Apple App Store. You can watch a video demonstration here.

I had such a great time at Digi Night Out on Saturday night! It was really fun to sit with so many digital scrapbookers and chat about programs, tips, and memories throughout the night. Don’t you just love seeing all these laptops together? I remember going to paper crops where there would have been 2 people (max) sitting at a long table like this. I also remember spending hours (or even days) sorting through my supplies and trying to figure out what to pack to work on a a crop. This time, I literally just grabbed my laptop, mouse, cord, and a small portable external hard drive and I had ALL of my photos and ALL of my supplies with me! Amber LaBau did such a great job of organizing the event. She really thought of everything! Everyone who attended got a free template pack from me (it will be in my shop in a few days) plus a coupon for another free template set of their choice. We all scrapped along with a challenge to use one of the templates with some alterations and certain ingredients. I ended up putting together this layout with a picture of my kids back in 1996. Supplies: Scrapbook Lady Shifted template (coming to the Scrap Shop soon) City Sidewalks by Forever Joy Home for the Holidays by Studio Rosey Posey Christmas Stories by Traci Reed and Meghan Mullens Simply Glamorous font (free download) The whole event just reminded me how lucky I am to have digital scrapbooking in my life and how wonderful it is to be part of a community of memory keepers who love technology, pretty designs, and treasured photos just as much as I do! Digi scrappers are my kind of people! … Continue reading

I’ve been on 159 episodes of The Digi Show and I recorded the last one with Steph and Peppermint this week. It really was the end of an era. 125 of those shows were as “The Digi Show” and all three of us were on every single one of those. There were 51 episodes recorded under the PaperClipping Roundtable Digi Show name and I was a guest on several of those before I became the co-host. Now you can access every one of those shows on The Digi Show website. Most of the shows took us about 2 hours to record (including our pre-show conversations) and some were even longer which means I’ve spent a pretty big chunk of my life visiting with these ladies. You can’t help but grow close to someone you spend that much time talking to and I can honestly say that I really have loved these relationships with Steph and Peppermint and with our guests and listeners. That’s the part I will miss the most! The good news is that I will still get a chance about once a month to visit with them on The Daily Digi Digest podcast. Those shows will be called Daily Digi Digest Discussions and we jokingly started calling it D4 because it’s hard to say all those D-words together. If you listen to this last episode, you will hear more about what we will be doing there and how to send us questions and comments for that show. You can listen to this podcast right here from this post, or you can go to The Digi Show site or subscribe in iTunes. I want to be sure to thank everyone who has listened to any of The Digi Show episodes. None of this would have been possible without YOU! Thank you so much! … Continue reading

I kept my layouts really simple this month. That’s one of my favorite things about pocket scrapping – simple still looks really good! I have a few more personal details to document from our month so I will be adding one more journaling-heavy page later on. For now, I’m feeling like I have a good representation of March 2014 included on these layouts. Supplies: Scrapbook Lady Segmented Templates Background paper from One Little Bird Designs Wintersong Kit Project Life (digital) kits: Dear Lizzy Neapolitan, Lili Niclass Seasons, and Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party Little Butterfly Wings 2014 calendar cards Journal cards from Collect Photo App Segoe Print font It feels so good to have March documented! … Continue reading

I love to use apps (on my phone and iPad) to create pretty pieces of inspiration. One of my favorite tools is the Rhonna Designs App. I’ve made a lot of fun images and I use them in a lot of different ways: Included on digital layouts Printed out for quote boards Saved on my phone for inspiration As graphics for blog posts The Rhonna Designs app is $1.99 and is available in iTunes or in Google Play. There are many options for in-app purchases to add additional designs and I’ve bought all of them. I seem to have no control when it comes to these little .99 cents of fun! The good news is that you can reuse them over and over and I’ve now figured out how to access all the designs on both my iPad and iPhone. On an earlier episode of The Digi Show, I couldn’t figure out how to do that (I swear it wasn’t just me, I think they’ve fixed the issue since then) so I just want to be sure to clarify that you can access all of your purchases on all of your devices. Now it’s really easy to figure out with the “restore purchases” button right in the app. Here are some of my recent creations: I love being able to see how to use apps with video tutorials and Rhonna has a bunch of them to watch. Here’s the latest one: Updatev: v1.8(iPhone) & 1.3.2 (Android) Rhonna Designs App from Rhonna Designs on Vimeo. Have you used the Rhonna Designs App? I bet you will love it! … Continue reading

I’m pretty geeked out that this is my 99th time of doing a roundup post. I’ve been doing these posts once a month since January of 2006 and I had no idea when I started this tradition that it would be the single most important tool in my memory keeping arsenal. I’m pretty proud of myself and I’m excited to get to number 100 next month. I’m the Cal Ripken of roundups! Ok, I’ve actually got a long way to go to catch up to Cal’s amazing statistics, but still…. not bad, right? Believe me, there have been months when I wanted to skip it. The last 8+ years of my life have been the very busiest and I had every excuse in the book to let a roundup slip. But I’m SO glad I didn’t! Now I have a month by month recap of my life for the last 99 months! You can too if you just answer a few simple prompts. Even if you only do one roundup in your entire life, you will still be glad you took the time to record those memories! Here is my March Roundup. I’ll be using the information gathered in this roundup to put together my layouts.(You can read more about roundups here). List of what I’ve watched, read, and/or listened to in the past month Merlin Once Upon a Time Survivor Brains, Brawn, and Beauty Muppet Treasure Island Sword in the Stone Mythbusters Muppets Most Wanted Our first experience with a wheelchair at the movies. So nice that modern day buildings are accessible. It was therapeutic for my daughter to get out after being at home so much with her injury. The movie was cute, but it wasn’t our favorite Muppet movie. Also, can you find Alex in the picture? Silly guy! I continued reading The World is Flat and did my best to keep up with the internet each day. lol! I bought several books and magazines, but didn’t read any of them. I was too exhausted each day to sit down and read. What fun things did you do with friends and/or family? Played board games with my kids (Disney Apples to Apples, Forbidden Desert, and Go Fish for Ancient Egypt) Went on one dinner date with my husband Attended a wedding reception Went out to dinner with several of the Scrap Orchard ladies when they were in town for the Scrapbook Expo (which I did not go to). Here’s who is in the picture by their design name: Cheri (Dream Big Designs), me (Katie the Scrapbook Lady), Kami (Ziggle Designs), Chelle (Chelle’s Creations), Jen Svane (admin help), Jenny (admin help), Merideth Cardall, Angie (Down This Road Designs), Wendy (WendyBird designs), and Kristin (Kristin Aagard Designs). Such nice ladies! What milestones occurred? Any holidays or celebrations? How about special events? I celebrated a birthday We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary Celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a green theme dinner Ate pizza pie and coconut cream pie on Pi Day (3.14) Had some friends and my brother and his wife over for a Sunday afternoon luncheon and special occasion. The everyday and routine bits of life in the past month Went to the grocery store several times a week. Seems like we were always out of something we needed. Got a lot more exercise because of hauling a wheelchair back and forth to school each day and being the legs for my daughter at home. Cleaned out and reorganized my pantry (that was already pretty clean and organized in the first place – lol) Bought some new shelves for our TV & gaming area downstairs and got those all configured and organized. Finished up all the paperwork for our taxes. What good stuff happened? What were the hard things? Anything unusual? Alex made a lot of great progress this month with some goals he has been working on. Recorded 3 episodes of The Digi Show My husband had 2 business trips out of town. My son got sick during one of those trips and my daughter was injured so it was harder than usual to have my husband gone. Had to cancel an Arizona vacation we had scheduled because of my daughter’s injury. Report on the progress you’ve made toward your goals or list any new goals you have set Created a vision board for my One Little Word I’ve been tracking my steps each day and I set some new personal records in the month of March. I got a lot of steps in! I created 12 digital scrapbook layouts and I released 2 template sets; sidesteps and stitched. My month is all documented now! I will also be creating scrapbook layouts this weekend using the information gathered in my roundup. I’ll be sharing those here on Monday. Here are some ways to Document Your Month: Online Approach Journal Approach Photo Collage Approach Scrapbook/Photobook Approach If you want to download a free Roundup Prompt card to use in your projects, I have a free gift for you here!You will have to enter your email address to get the download, but it isn’t used for anything, it’s just to make sure your file can be delivered.

When I post this reminder image at the end of each month, that’s a signal to start gathering up the photos, memorabilia, and events of the month that is ending. It’s completely up to you how in-depth you want to go with this. I’ve included 6 categories that I will be using each month and I have found after doing 98 (yes, NINETY-EIGHT) consecutive roundups that if you answer these prompts, you will usually cover the most important stuff. The gathering (the act of rounding everything up) is part one. I’m calling it Roundup Your Month. Clever, right? Here’s a written list of the Roundup Prompts: List what you watched, read, and/or listened to in the past month What fun things did you do with friends and/or family? What milestones occurred? Any holidays or celebrations? How about special events? Talk about the everyday and routine bits of life in the past month What good stuff happened? What were the hard things? Anything unusual? Report on the progress you’ve made toward your goals or list any new goals you have set Feel free to copy and paste the above list to use for your own notes. Use these prompts as reminders as you go through your calendar and memories from the past few weeks. This is also a great time to get your photos off of SD cards or from your phone. Remember, this is just the gathering phase! Once you are done with your roundup, then it’s time to save your memories and share them if you want to –part two of the process. That’s the time to get the month all documented and there are several ways to do that. In fact, there are probably unlimited approaches and there is no “right” or “wrong” way to go about it. Here are links to my 4 different ways to Document Your Month: Online Approach Journal Approach Photo Collage Approach Scrapbook/Photobook Approach If you want to download a free Roundup Prompt card to use in your projects, I have a free gift for you here!You will have to enter your email address to get the download, but it isn’t used for anything, it’s just to make sure your file can be delivered. You can find several other free gifts to download in this post if you like to get free stuff. Have fun rounding up and documenting your month! … Continue reading
