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.

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

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.

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

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!

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

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!

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

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!

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

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.

2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. March Release Grow Deeper Roots!!!

Hi everyone, today I am sharing a layout from my 2018 Project Life album for Week 07. I am using the Larkindesign Grow Deeper Roots collection, available in my shop, and also the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection. Have a look at my process here.

Here is the completed layout.

Larkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper RootsLarkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper Roots

Our stories for this week included Valentine’s Day, NAL competition for Nick, visits to s friends’ house for Addison, date night, and every day life.

Larkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper RootsLarkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper Roots

The left hand side begins with the date card, which is one of the patterned papers from Grow Deeper Roots. I have layered it with a photo template that will be released in April, so stay tuned for that!

Larkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper RootsLarkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper Roots

I decided to pull the purple elements from the kit and love how it looks on the layout. The other colors of pink and teal and light blue add a soft beauty to it.

Larkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper RootsLarkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper Roots

Each month I design two sheets of printable elements to go with the collections. These are tags, labels, and other embellishments you can print and cut using your die cutting machine or just fussy cut if you don’t have a cutting machine. These add the perfect little something to the photos and journaling cards, and I am loving the flat pages right now.

Larkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper RootsLarkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper Roots

I’ve also used a few tiny wood veneer hearts around the page. Those are from Felicity Jane.

Larkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper RootsLarkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper Roots

The wreath card is from February’s kit, The Heart Is Home. Also notice how I used the green card, but layered purple over it to coordinate best with the layout.

Our Valentine’s Day was celebrated a few days later, as Nick and Natalie were at their Dads on that day. When they got back we gave them their chocolates and gifts, which is what they are doing around the dining room table. They are mildly obsessed with Kinder eggs right now, so that was one of the things they got and I took a photo of one as well. Too funny!

As I was printing my photos and writing out my journaling, if occurred to me this is one of the last times I will pick Nick up from this school! He has been in middle school for three years now and will move on to High School next year. I love capturing these kids right now, in the moment, as they are today.

Larkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper RootsLarkindesign 2018 Project Life Week 07 ft. Grow Deeper Roots

I love this journaling card so much! Using washi tape to create lines is one of my favorite things to do, and the confetti on the side is just happiness. The hello on the geometric card is from Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful.

One last photo of the toy from the Kinder egg. They are so cute, have you seen them? The eggs have chocolate in them and then a fun little toy that is something for little hands to keep busy, figure out, do something with. They are so cute! The Stories of Home card is also from February’s The Heart Is Home kit.

Thanks for joining me today! See you again soon!

Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

Hi everyone, today I am sharing Week 06 in my 2018 Project Life album! I have used the Currently Photo Templates & Flair from Sahlin Studio, along with the Weekly Calendar cards and the February Keen MPM kit from The Lilypad. Check out my process here:

This is the completed layout for Week 06.

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

Let’s look at the left hand side in detail. Our stories for this week included going to a fun play for Date Night, going to a Robotics event in Winston Salem, and a couple of other fun photos from the week.

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

The layouts begins with the week card in the upper left hand corner. I almost always place it here or in the lower right hand corner. This makes it easy to find and makes for a repetitive element throughout the album!

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

The Currently Photo Templates are awesome for the supporting photos in this layout. During this particular week the kids got report cards, so I included one of them here. We also had a really yummy tacos at the Robotics event, so that was a fun little detail to add as well!

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

Date nights are awesome, and this one was extra fun. We went to see Noises Off, which is a quirky little play about all the mishaps that can go on behind stage during a particular play. 

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

I also did a little organizing thing in my studio, and this photo of the girls was taken while they were helping me. I took apart all my chipboard sheets! Most of them are now housed in a tray on my desk, where I can see them and use them any time. I absolutely love it and we had the best time working on it together!

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

I’ve added journaling using the journal cards from the Keen kit. I’ve also added labels to the photos, as you can see on the right hand side as well.

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06
Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

I have layered the flair over the photos in the Currently template. I chose ones that reinforce the theme of that card for cohesiveness, and I love it.

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

The photo above is the stage set from the play. When events don’t allow you to take photos, snap a photo before or after so you can remember.

The foam title is from Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection from a few years ago.

Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 36 | Using Sahlin Studio You & Me Digital Kit

Hi everyone, today I am sharing a lovely layout from my 2017 Project Life album for Week 36. I am using a kit from Sahlin Studio called You & Me and I just adore how it turned out. Follow my process here.

This is my completed layout for Week 36 in my 2017 Project Life. Our stories include welcoming fall, with cooler weather and a big clean-up around the house. We put down new pine straw in the flower beds. The boys played lots of video games, although that isn’t anything unusual (ha!)

Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 36 | Using Sahlin Studio You %26 Me Digital Kit

The title card for this layout was so much fun to put together. I’ve used my favorite card from the Me & You kit and a set of alphabet stickers from Freckled Fawn to mark our transition into fall. I’ve also created a confetti pocket with confetti from an older Dear Lizzy collection. The pocket is sealed with the Fuse tool.

There were some really awesome round elements in the Me & You kit, which I printed on vellum and punched out so they could be layered on top of photos. To print on vellum I just look for a printable vellum at any local office supply store and print on Draft setting.

Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 36 | Using Sahlin Studio You %26 Me Digital Kit

I love documenting what we do around the house and yard each year, and love that this album becomes a great home for these photos. This week we were getting the flower beds ready for winter, mainly just cleaning out and cutting back and putting down new pine straw. It’s something that Alan and I enjoy doing together, and for that I am so thankful!

We also undertook a major cleaning project inside – cleaning the floors and rugs. This photo is an awesome capture. Notice how I took the journaling card from Me & You and added my handwriting + a few stamps. The stamps are from the Felicity Jane Autumn kit, and they are perfect for this layout.

Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 36 | Using Sahlin Studio You %26 Me Digital Kit

My date card was so easy to pull together, with the calendar card and a simple date stamp. This is the Heidi Swapp roller date stamp and I’ve also added a simple puffy heart from Elle’s Studio.

Project Life 2017 Week 35 | Using Sahlin Studio Monthly Cards & Like A Boss!!!

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing this lovely layout from my 2017 Project Life album for Week 35. I am using the Sahlin Studio Monthly calendar cards and the Like A Boss kit. Have a look at my entire process here.

Our stories for this particular week included a heavy travel week for Alan, so preparations for that, taking care of the kids via solo parenting for me, and some awesome photos that Alan took while he was in Texas!

I am loving the beautiful colors on the Monthly calendar cards from Sahlin Studio! In our creative world it can be difficult sometimes to choose a kit or product to use in our layouts, but I’ve used this calendar card as a jumping off point for the whole layout. I looked in the Sahlin Studio shop to see what other collections feature this color, and Like A Boss was an immediate winner! Yay for easy decision-making!

Project Life 2017 Week 35 | Using Sahlin Studio Monthly Cards %26 Like A Boss!!!

I’ve printed only the journaling cards I needed to complete my layout, and my formula for selecting those is also pretty straightforward: print your favorites. Print the ones you LOVE. I was listening to another scrapbooker a few days ago who repeated this sentiment. Instead of saving the ones you love, go ahead and USE the ones you love. You’ll be so glad you did!

Project Life 2017 Week 35 | Using Sahlin Studio Monthly Cards %26 Like A Boss!!!

I’ve added just a few tiny embellishments to some of the cards, the leaves here are from Felicity Jane, as is the rubber Home Sweet Home piece. The wood 2017 veneer is from a Gossamer Blue kit several years back.

Project Life 2017 Week 35 | Using Sahlin Studio Monthly Cards %26 Like A Boss!!!

I have also used a few tiny embellishments from Freckled Fawn. I have to tell you guys, the embellishment kits are always near my desk and I reach for them on almost every layout I make! Here the labels, the chipboard word sticker, and the washi tape add simple touches.

For the second page I’ve included a photo of the kids while we were having dinner. The story is about Addison trying to tell us all about some things that they were going over in class, but it was pretty far over my head so I know it was over the others’ heads too! He forgets he is the oldest (and no doubt the smartest too!). But I am in awe of him, even when I have to remind him that what happens in his classes needs to stay in his classes, and how bright he is. He has a very acute memory!

Since I had most of my journaling complete, and the title card done, this 4×6 card with the fun squares becomes a filler card and just a place to have fun. So I added just the tiniest embellishments that would fit inside those squares! They of course repeat the colors and textures across the page and give an awesome opportunity to use them up!

What a fun layout, thank you for following along today! See you again soon!

Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June Curious

Hi guys! Today I am sharing my layout for Week 24 in my 2017 Project Life album. I chose the June MPM kit from The Lilypad called Curious, along with Paislee Press Pocket Guide No 03 as my template.

Have a look at the completed layout here:

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June CuriousLarkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June Curious

This kit was so much fun to work with! I really love bright, happy colors in my Project Life albums, and this kit provides all that. 

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June CuriousLarkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June Curious

I loved the circle elements in the Pocket Guide template, so I made sure to repeat that element across the layout. It was so easy to notate the week number in this half circle!

With summer officially beginning, we took time to clean out backpacks from school. I also took a moment to photograph this really awesome roller coaster that Emberlynn built as part of her Maker Space club she participated in at school. It is made of paper and a little marble made its way down, down down. We decided that since it was paper, it probably wouldn’t survive, so photographs were in order.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June CuriousLarkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June Curious

Pool photos also made their way into this week’s layout. I also used some of the left over digital elements I have printed out from previous kits. I keep those in a little bucket on my workspace so they are easy to grab. All the labels and little elements I have added are from my little stash!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June CuriousLarkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June Curious

On the right hand side I included some cute cat photos, because cats, of course. 

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June CuriousLarkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June Curious

I love the graphic elements in The Lilypad monthly kits! The intersecting lines on this page give it a punch of color and visual interest, plus a clever little place to include just a sentences of journaling. My journaling on this layout, like most of my Project Life spreads, always includes little bits and sentences here and there as part of the overall writing. Each sentence makes up the whole.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June CuriousLarkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June Curious

Word art is always fun to include and they always layer so nicely right on top of journaling cards, don’t they? I loved repeating the half circle here again, as well.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June CuriousLarkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 24 Hybrid | ft. MPM June Curious

My secret is out: I love Pusheen the cat and she has appeared yet again on my layout. I also just die laughing at this photo of Mickey the dog, and Zoe the cat. These two have the funniest love/hate relationship. They sit here beside each other in a rare show of solidarity, but turn their backs to each other just so, you know, you don’t think they are friends or something.

Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

Hi guys! Today I am sharing my Week 25 layout in our 2017 Project Life album with you! I am using the Sahlin Studio Composition collection, which is the featured collection on the Sahlin Studio blog this month.

Have a look at the completed layout here:

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

I began my layout with the featured digital collection at Sahlin Studio this month, called Composition. I had a great selection of photos from the week and the colors from the kit go well with my colorful photos.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

Our stories this week included making the most of the time left before Addison and Emberlynn go to Florida for the summer. They have lots of grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins who lovingly host them every summer and they truly have the best time when they go. But we take a little extra time to enjoy hanging out together. I had a few photos from our flower beds this week as well!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

I chose some very simple embellishments from Elle’s Studio and Gossamer Blue for this layout. I am always a fan of navy and I love the navy included in the kit, so the navy embellishments repeat that color across the page.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

This kraft-color card provided a great neutral space for journaling, and I added the awesome stamped word to the cut line just to give it a little kick. Also notice the pile of stuffed animals on the bed? Natalie left those there for me several nights in a row – first it was just one or two and that night it was all of them. Too funny!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

On the left hand side I used the navy stripe patterned paper as the background, which contrasts so nicely with the mint on the left side. This photo shows my white pitchers that I collect and showcase in the kitchen above the cabinets. I found a new one that week, so we took them all down, washed them, and put them back up all fresh and sparkly. I loved seeing them all there on the counter, waiting to go back up!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

I love the graphics in the Sahlin Studio collections, every one. These yellow and red cards are so simple yet bold, and I am trying my hand at clipping photos to the cards as well. I really like the photo of that giant croissant there. (FYI it was delicious!)

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

This mint card is such a simple filler card, and its purpose here is to balance the mint green on the left hand side of the layout. I love the simplicity of this.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

This last photo is enlarged and shows the kids all together hanging out at the mall. These really are the wonder years, and I am so thankful to have these photos of all of them together every so often. I am even more thankful to have these albums filled with all these photos and stories.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 25 ft. Sahlin Studio Composition!!!!

My heart is with the people of Texas who are finding their way back to the remains of their homes. I am seeing so many stories of photos and albums and scrapbooks that are damaged and hoping to be restored in some way. This is an important reminder to back up your hard drives, host your photos on outside websites, and digitize digitize digitize. Love to you all.

Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 31 | ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Catching Waves!!!

Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing a hybrid Project Life layout from our 2017 album for Week 31. The layout was created in Photoshop CC using On A Whimsical Adventure Catching Waves collection, printed and then embellished using Elle’s Studio embellishments!

Here is a look at the completed layout:

Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 31 | ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Catching Waves!!!Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 31 | ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Catching Waves!!!

Our stories for Week 31 included birthday celebrations for Natalie, who wanted cupcakes. We also spent some time at the pool and a local amusement park called Celebration Station. We took the kids to a midnight go-cart adventure and it was so much fun! 

Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 31 | ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Catching Waves!!!Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 31 | ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Catching Waves!!!

I created this layout for the On A Whimsical Adventure creative team. I took some of the digital papers, transfers, and elements to create my own journal cards in Photoshop. I particularly love the colors in this collection – the turquoise and corals printed beautifully!

Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 31 | ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Catching Waves!!!Larkindesign Hybrid Project Life 2017 Week 31 | ft. On A Whimsical Adventure Catching Waves!!!

Once my layout was printed of course I wanted to add hand written journaling and a few tiny embellishments. My favorite part – adding the textural details. I used some of my acrylic pieces from Elle’s Studio here in colors repeated from the digital collection. Yellows, blues, and greens, and a few touches of wood grains!
