Project Life 2018 Week 26 | ft. Sahlin Studio Snapshot Photo Templates

Hello Lovelies! Today I am sharing a layout from my 2018 Project Life album for Week 26. This is a hybrid scrapbooking layout using the Sahlin Studio Shine Bright digital kit and Snapshots Photo Templates. You can view the process video here.


Here is a look at my full layout for this week. Our stories included seeing Addison and Emberlynn off to Florida for a few weeks, a fun game of Putt-Putt, and getting nails and toes done.

For the right hand side I have lots of journaling and a few really fun, sunny photos. The bright photos inspired me to use the Shine Bright kit so my colors are turquoise with happy pops of yellow!

I love this photo of Natalie and myself sticking our tongues out and just overall being silly. I have added a few tiny embellishments from Freckled Fawn. Notice how I split the tag and used it to embellish a journal card above.

Addison and Emberlynn visit their relatives in Florida for the summer, so I had to capture one more photo before they left. These photos in front of the front door are so iconic and capture their growth throughout the year!

The right hand side of the layout begins with the date card for the week, which is from the Sahlin Studio Week cards. And yes, there is a second, more silly photo of the kids on the front porch!

The Snapshots photo templates are a great way to tie these two photos together. I added two tiny enamel hearts as well.

I had less journaling on this side, so I have used a few filler cards with just a couple of tiny embellishments added. The word strips below are digital elements in the Shine Bright kit that were printed and cut.

Thank you for joining me today! See you again soon!

Hybrid 2018 Project Life Week 16 | ft. Sahlin Studio The Everyday Routine!!

Hello Lovelies, today I am sharing this hybrid layout featuring the Sahlin Studio The Everyday Routine digital kit. This is my layout for Week 16 in my 2018 Project Life album. If you’d like to see all my layouts and videos for 2018 Project Life, check it out here.

In our Hybrid Scrappers Facebook group this week we talked about one of my favorite tips for getting layouts done and using up supplies: use your favorites first. I talk about this a whole lot in both In My Pocket classes and pretty much any time I talk about supplies. For this week’s challenge we were to grab the most recent kit, collection, or product that arrived and use it in a layout. For me, the digital kit from Sahlin Studio called The Everyday Routine arrived so I was able to use it for this layout here.

Whenever I receive a digital kit, I always open the kit on my computer and just look at all the files that are included in the kit. I take a few minutes to get a feel for the kit, think about what layout I want to use it with, and select my favorites. I open my favorites in Photoshop and print them out right away! If I already know what layout I am putting it with then of course I already know how many journal cards I need. I keep 4×6 matte card stock next to my printer so this part of the process goes quickly. For printable elements I place my favorites onto a 4×6 canvas in Photoshop and also print, then cut with scissors. Typically I will print any kind of labels, word strips, circles, and florals from a digital kit!

Once the kit is printed, and the photos are printed, then I pull just a few simple embellishments to add to my layout. For the embellishments I choose based on color, so for this layout I pulled navy and orange/yellow. This keeps the selection process fairly quick and simple and makes the actual creative process so very easy. Notice how for this layout, I added my dates using an alphabet stamp from Dear Lizzy and a roller date stamp.

Our stories for this week were mostly about preparing the yard for summer. We rented the giant aerator you see in the photo above so we could aerate and fertilize our grass. This was a monumental task but we did it like champs! We also did plant shopping so we could plant a few things and we got those put in the ground as well. The photo below is a tongue in cheek spoof on the Grant Wood painting called American Gothic. We were in the Home Depot and needed a rake, and I totally set up the camera in the middle of the rack so we could take the shot. I printed it in black and white so it would be more authentic. Ha. I love our sense of humor!

We also did a little shopping at the mall. While we were in the Charming Charlie’s I turned around to see the kids all piled up on this bench together, playing their games and chatting and just being so cool. I love these guys so much!

When printing digital products I also like to just print a patterned paper, but if I am working in pocket pages I don’t print the entire 12×12 paper. You can open up the paper in Photoshop and tell it to print just a 4×6 piece of that paper, to conserve your ink.

I also filmed my process, which can be viewed here.
