Hello lovelies! Today I am so excited to introduce to you this amazing talented lady on our Creative Team, Tori Bissell! You can find out more about Tori and connect with her on social media on her page: Tori Bissell.
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to pop in on the blog to introduce myself and say hi! My name is Tori and I’m so excited and honoured Theresa asked me to join the Larkindesign Creative Team. Not only is she an incredibly talented designer she’s such a great scrappy friend too, so I’m excited to work with her. When I saw the line-up of the rest of the Creative Team, I was blown away by the talent and uniqueness and creativity… gah there’s so much inspiration – I’m so thrilled to work with these artists. I’m also a little shocked that I’m one of them.
Today I am working with the Larkindecember Digital Mini Kit. Click on the image below to purchase!
I thought today, I could pop in and tell you a bit more about me and show you the first project I’ve created as part of the Creative Team.
If we haven’t met, I’m a fellow memory keeper who adores sparkles, buttons, glitter, sequins, doilies and PINK! I love collecting memorabilia and documenting the details. Recently I stumbled upon hybrid scrapbooking and fell head over heels in love. I love that I get the opportunity to make things my own and play on my computer BUT I still get to play with all the pretty supplies. It’s the best of both worlds! I adore scrapbooking, project life, and mixed media. I also dabble in planner decorating and junk journals. If it includes pretty papers – I’m in! I truly aspire to inspire others… that’s why I created my YouTube channel a few years ago and why I love sharing the things I’m working on with others. I have just been so blessed and inspired by the creativity others share and I hope I can share a bit with others too. I’m looking forward to sharing more inspiration with you via the blog.
Anywho, I thought today I could share one of my most recent creations with you. Throughout the whole month of December I’ve been working diligently on my December Daily – my favourite project of the year. Oh by the way, I’m Canadian – just in case the extra “u” in favourite didn’t give it away.
When I saw the Larkindecember Digital Files I just couldn’t wait to play with them. My favourite designs were definitely the florals… the 4×6 floral heart and the floral wreath … be still my beating heart. I knew immediately I needed to print those off and stick them in the album. So I printed off a few of the Larkindecember Files on my Cannon Selphy while I was printing of my photos for today’s spread.
Today In my Decmeber Daily I wanted to document my David’s Tea Advent Calendar and the crazy, goofy text message conversations my sister and I have been having as we taste test the daily teas. I decided to use this plastic envelope form Ali Edwards a few years ago and I began by fussy cutting out the floral wreath and adding my woodveneer #5. I then created 3 different 4×6 cards with the photos, the 4×6 floral heart print and the Advent Calendar image. I was really inspired by a project Brandi Kincaid had shared where she made a little flip book, peek-a-boo of her advent calendar. I love that it creates an interactive element for day 5.
By the way, I used the picstitch app to create the photo collages of the text message conversations. I also used the Rhonna app to shrink the size of the 4×6 floral heart. I love that hybrid scrapbooking can be as quick and easy as playing with the jpegs on my phone and printing them off on my cannon selphy photo printer. I think sometimes “hybrid scrapbooking” and “digital scrapbooking” get a bad rep… oh that’s too hard. But honestly this project couldn’t have been any easier to create and the whole project only took about half an hour or so.
I did create a process video of my project if you’d like to check it out here:
I hope you enjoyed checking out my December Daily Day 5 and reading the ridiculous conversations between my little sister and I. I had so much fun sharing it with you.
