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.

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

Hybrid Traveler’s Notebook Layout | Beauty ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Whimsical Templates No. 05

Hi guys! Today I am using a template from On A Whimsical Adventure to create this really awesome traveler’s notebook layout. What?! Use a template for a traveler’s notebook? Yes! 

This was such a fun layout to create! In the template I chose to print only certain layers on the vellum, and the rest on card stock for the background. I love re-interpreting digital product into physical product like this!

Hopefully you can see here how the vellum layers beautifully over the background texture. Creating your own vellums using digital templates is a great way to use supplies in a unique way.

To place this layout in the notebook itself, I pried open the staples, lightly punched holes in the center fold, and placed them into the staples that are already in the notebook. You could also sew or washi tape these layers into the notebook as well!
