Important Class Announcement Plus December Traveler’s Notebook Cover Page And Reason Why!

Welcome back Lovelies! I am so excited to share my cover page and my reason why page in my December Daily Traveler’s Notebook! It is always so excited to dive right in and start working on the actual pages, even as I am still completing foundation pages and anxiously waiting for the First of December! You can watch my process video below.

Every year I get so excited to begin these pages and this year is absolutely no different. I set about to choose one traveler’s notebook to begin with and started with the cover.

This cover already lays groundwork for being incredibly simple, so simple is how I kept it. I left the transparency (Bella Blvd.) just as it was, and added a simple wooden date plus a stamped image.

The wooden numbers are from Felicity Jane from the 2017 Joy kit, the background paper is Alexandra Renke, circle chipboard embellishment Pinkfresh Studio, and Christmas stamp is from Paislee Press.

My Reason Why each year is basically always the same, even though I have so many different reasons for doing this project the most important reason is for our family. I want nothing more than our family to remember all the amazing memories we have made each year, and specifically in this season.

I always prefer to open this project with a family photo, and this is one of my all-time favorites this year. I have used a full-page photo, and since this layout has a pocket I added an Ali Edwards transparency into the pocket.

My journaling and a simple title, echoing my Reason Why, is on the facing page. I began with the star patterned paper from Pinkfresh December Days, and notice how I cut it so the largest star was slightly off-centered. This made it so the Joy die cut could actually be in the center, and then I added a few more ornaments to balance. This left a great space for my hand-written journaling.

 One final stamp at the bottom, and these pages are complete!


I have a really awesome announcement to make and I hope you will join me! You may know that I have previously created and released two memory keeping classes, called In My Pocket. I retired those for a while, but am opening those classes up again for purchase! You can click this image below to learn more.

I know that many of us are already planning and plotting our 2019 memory keeping plans, and so with that in mind I hope you will join me on a personal journey through Volume 01, beginning January 15, 2019! What does this mean? If you sign up for the Bundle, Volume 01, or if you have previously purchased Volume 01, you will receive an invitation to receive weekly emails walking through the class, lesson by lesson. This is actually really exciting and I can’t wait to share with you each week the concepts introduced in the class! If you have already purchased the class or the bundle, you don’t have to do a thing, just look for your invitation in January and sign up! If you wish to participate, be sure to purchase the class and then look for your invitation as well. Also note the special pricing, from now until December 10, 2018, all In My Pocket classes are discounted! 

See you soon,

Clique Kits May Blog Hop | ft. Riga Kit!!!!

Hello lovelies and welcome to this part of the Clique Kits May Blog Hop! I am so very happy you have stopped by! If you are participating in the Blog Hop, you more than likely came here from the lovely Hannah Lemieux blog. To find the next stop on the hop, be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom! If you wish to start back at the beginning, be sure to visit the Clique Kits blog first. Also, be sure to Like/Comment on each post in the hop to be entered into a prize drawing (full details on the Clique Kits blog.)

But first, I have a little inspiration for you, using the Clique Kits May Riga kit. This kit was packed with Pinkfresh Studio products that featured lovely rose gold, pinks and peachy colors, and all around stunning products for us! I had a photo of a flower we saw in the garden shop, and even though we did not purchase it, I still took a photo because it was so beautiful!

I have a favorite traveler’s notebook that I love to document my gardening, so I grabbed that plus my photo and got to work. I absolutely LOVE the iDSN cut file from Clique Kits, and chose to cut it in the most delicate rose colored card stock I could find. I wanted just a little bit of contrast with the white background, but not too much to take away from my photo.

I cut the doily in fourths and adhered half on the top part of the page, and the other half on the bottom part of the page. I wanted my title to be my journaling, so I used the rose gold alphabet stickers to write “Such Beauty All Around Us,” using the curve of the cut file.

My photo is on the left side of the layout, tucked partially into the bottom half of the cut file. I added just a few tiny die cut embellishments below the photo and at the top of the page.

For the last little detail I scattered some random confetti across the page, some gold, some pink, and glued them down using my glue pen. My technique for that is so simple: literally hold the confetti in your hand and move your hand around the page, as if you were sowing seeds. Adhere the sequins wherever they land.

50 First Layouts | Love You Always ft Pinkfresh Studio Let Your Heart Decide

Hello lovelies, today I am sharing this fun scrapbook layout using Pinkfresh Studio Let Your Heart Decide collection plus a Silhouette cut file from Paige Evans!

Have a look at this fun layout!

Larkindesign 50 First Layouts | Love You Always ft Pinkfresh Studio Let Your Heart Decide

My photo, and therefore the story of this layout is about Nick and the time back in February that we went to the vintage arcade in Winston Salem. I chose a selfie we took on that day together as the starting point for this layout.

I absolutely love this cut file from the Silhouette store designed by Paige Taylor Evans. I cut strips of paper to adhere behind the pattern of the cut file. As I laid out the strips I tried to switch up the colors to add variety and texture to this background, and I adore how it turned out! Once the background was complete then I was free to add my photos and embellish.

I loved all the textures and colors in the Let Your Heart Decide collection and made a point to include my favorites here! I did use the blue frame to make the photo pop off the background, and then I layered leaves and hearts and my journaling around the photo.

I have kept my journaling really simple for this layout. The who, what, where, and when are here at the bottom of the photo, and I added my why near the top of the photo. I kept this so simple for this layout and that is ok!

My title is placed vertically on the layout, which feels somewhat unexpected but I really love it. It does an excellent job to balance the photo on the layout and I loved using those alphabets!

Thanks for joining me today! See you soon!
