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.

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

Project Life 2017 Week 46 | ft. One Canoe Two Plus Giveaway Announcement!

Hello lovelies, today I am sharing one of the last few layouts in my 2017 Project Life album! This is my layout for Week 46. I am so excited to be wrapping up this album, so be sure to stay tuned for the next layouts. In this layout I have chosen to work with some of the One Canoe Two products, including Hazelwood, Creekside, and Twilight.

Have a look at my completed layout here.

Our stories for this week included the kitty in the bowl, Alan hard at work in his office upstairs, the girls creating their own Advent calendars, and a lovely origami fox family that Natalie created. I also finished up my Christmas morning photos class that week. This is at the end of the year in November and so I am admittedly very light on photos at this time, because I typically prepare for December Daily in November. I still like to include the photos I do have and take the time to reflect, ponder, and cherish this time.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 46 | ft. One Canoe Two!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 46 | ft. One Canoe Two!

To begin my creative process I cut one of the patterned papers as the base for my date card, and layered a label on top. I then stamped my dates with a Studio Calico date stamp set that is designed by One Little Bird and added the floral element sticker. Such a simple but very beautiful formula for creating your date card.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 46 | ft. One Canoe Two!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 46 | ft. One Canoe Two!

The Twilight collection had a cut apart sheet, so I have used several of the elements from that sheet as journal cards. They make for great layering pieces that you can add labels or white card stock to, for your journaling.

I had a sequin pocket from the week before, which is particularly fun! I just made sure those colors are continued in this layout as well. That isn’t really hard to do, if you feel intimidated by see through elements. I really loved carrying the pink and the gold into this page.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 46 | ft. One Canoe Two!Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 46 | ft. One Canoe Two!

I just love this project still, after so many years, and I love the opportunities to include these quiet everyday events in our lives. Thank you for joining me today!


And now to announce the give-away winner!

Last week I released a brand new collection called Lovin’ the Sun and I asked you to tell me what your summer vacation plans are. It is so much fun to hear your plans and I am looking forward to our summer here as well. We are planning a stacation, no plans for travel for us. 

Our winner for this give away is Lizzy Hill, who tells us she is visiting the USA from Australia this summer! I hope you enjoy the collection and your trip! Thank you all for playing along!

Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

Hello Lovelies, I am so excited to share my Halloween layout from last year with you! I am so very close to finishing this album and only have a few layouts remaining because I finish up in November each year. My layout today is the layout for Halloween, which, if you know me, is a favorite layout every single year! I am using collections from Pebbles: Midnight Haunting; Pink Paislee: Spellcast; and a bit of One Canoe Two Twilight!

Here is a look at the completed layout.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

Oh goodness, this layout has my whole heart. Here are the details.

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

For this week’s layout I chose one story, Halloween. This is an all-time favorite in our house, and this year I am cherishing that everyone still wanted to dress up and go out! It may be the last year they all want to, I don’t take that for granted, and it makes this layout even more special to me!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

I wanted to use the Pink Paislee Spellbound collection even though there isn’t much of it still available, and I also added a bit of Pebbles Midnight Haunting to go with it. For my date card I began with that amazing hexagon patterned paper and a banner. The week number was created with Thickers from One Canoe Two. 

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

One challenge when using traditional scrapbook collections is finding places for journaling. I always pull plain white card stock for plain white cards, and add a few lines with stamps. There was a weird cream vibe in these collections, to be sure, but the Spellcast collection also has some white in it, so I have used both in this layout! Gasp!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

This year we had a fox, a goddess, a business Narwhal, and a character from Assassin’s Creed. (Our kids do not play that game, but the costume is just that – fun dress-up!) I always love to take their photos in front of the garage on that day. We get dressed a few minutes early so that there is time to take photos and then get on with the fun!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

On the left side of the layout my photos were of all four kids together, and on this side I included each person’s photo by themselves. I have always tried, wherever possible, to give each child their moment in the camera lens so they each know how important and cared for they are. It is so much fun every year to embellish their photos!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

The spider on Addison’s photo literally did fall out of the package and scared me half to death! Ha! And that is where it landed, so I attached it right there and I love it! I also did another journal card here with plain white card stock and a lined stamp – and I added the circle sticker across the bottom. So very simple and uncomplicated!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

I have also added a few of the stars from Pinkfresh Studio The Mix. There were some black ones and orange ones that fit perfectly onto this layout and add the right little touches to my photos. They are awesome!

Larkindesign Project Life 2017 Week 44 | A Halloween Layout!!!!

Thank you for joining me on this scary adventure today! I always love sharing these layouts with you and I hope you feel inspired as well!

Creative Team Jenn Hutt | Travelers Notebook Layouts ft. Ordinary Moments!!

Hello lovelies, today Creative Team member Jenn Hutt is on the blog to share  with us! Be sure to check out her About Me page, where you can learn more about her and connect with her on social media!

Hey ya’ll! I hope you’re having a great day!

The first project I worked on with the May collection was for day 48 of the RUKristin 100 Days of All About Me project. The topic is about your pets.

Creative Team Jenn Hutt | Travelers Notebook Layouts ft. Ordinary Moments!!Creative Team Jenn Hutt | Travelers Notebook Layouts ft. Ordinary Moments!!

If you remember from last month, I am doing my project in a handmade album that was inspired by Jessica Upton on instagram. The album pages measure 4.5″X8.5″ and use 6 binder rings (to match the hole punch I use).

This prompt was all about pets, and the only pet that I have is a cat named Eleanor.

I used a TN paper from Traci Reed’s XOXO collection as the background (I liked the simple pattern and it was already on my desk) printed on cardstock paper. I also printed and cut out the May elements from the Ordinary Moments kit. I layered two triangle tags at the bottom and stamped 48 on there using some Ali Edwards stamps, for it being the 48th prompt in Kristin’s 100 Prompts

I used a 2″ circle to punch out the picture of my cat (she was standing on the stairs the day of my wedding wondering why there were so many people in her house- we got married in our back yard and the bridal party was getting ready in the house). I layered this image of her on a circle that was cut from the elements page with a green border and pretty red flowers. I put an ‘ordinary moments’ cut out over that.

I used some black glittery American Crafts alpha’s from my stash to spell out her name. I layered two strips of paper behind a premade text box from the cut apart sheet for my journaling and layered that below her name. You guys know me, I like to keep things simple and I am really enjoying this size right now.

Creative Team Jenn Hutt | Travelers Notebook Layouts ft. Ordinary Moments!!Creative Team Jenn Hutt | Travelers Notebook Layouts ft. Ordinary Moments!!

The next two projects for the month of May were both single page spreads for my Travelers Notebook insert. They both document an event from Mother’s Day weekend, where a friend of mine got married and the other is a picture with another friend, whom I took out on Mother’s Day.

Once again I resized and printed papers from the kit to fit my size and then printed them out together (this time on regular printer paper since they’re going into a TN insert that is already bound together).

The page on the left documented the adventure a friend and I went on on Mother’s Day. I took her to the GeekCraft Expo in Durham, NC, where we both got a new pair of ears (mine are a galaxy cat pair and hers are a set of fox ears). Afterwards we went to McDonalds for lunch, which is where the picture was snapped. The flower elements, the heart, and the “different is beautiful” piece are all from the “Let Your Heart Decide” collection from Pinkfresh Studios (received in my May Clique Kit subscription). I used a red/orange label that matched perfectly from the Ordinary Moments cut apart sheet.

The project on the right was to document a wedding I attended the day before Mother’s Day. This page is super simple and there isn’t much to it. I used several elements from the same cut apart sheet (two hexagons that were cut off at the edges, the date label, the green label where I wrote a tiny bit of journaling, the today strip (it is on the edge of the photo), and the special days label). Super simple, but I really wanted to document this (it’s the bridesmaids, the flower girl and ring bearer, and the bride being silly. It was originally just supposed to be the bridesmaids but we got photo bombed).

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects for this month! Make sure you get your own digital Ordinary Moments kit and share your projects with us!

New Project Introduction!!!!! 2013 Project Life Intro Layout!!!

Hello lovelies! I am so excited to begin a brand new project with you! I have decided to go back and completely redo my 2013 Project Life album. I have shared my reasons for redoing this album in my class, In My Pocket Volume 02, so be sure to join me there to hear all about it. I also plan to share layouts here and on my YouTube channel throughout the process as well!

Let’s have a look at the completed layout! I began the layout with a full 12×12 photo that I have printed in 4×6 sections, one at a time. This is an easy way to print large photos when you don’t want to use up your 13×19 size papers.

Larkindesign New Project Introduction!!!!! 2013 Project Life Intro Layout!!!

My story for this layout is all about spending New Year’s Eve at Hollywood Studios and having just an epic evening! I will share more of the story on the next layout, but this was just such an epic way to start the year and this photo is the perfect introduction to this album.

Larkindesign New Project Introduction!!!!! 2013 Project Life Intro Layout!!!

The photo stands alone so beautifully and doesn’t need much embellishing at all, but I always like to add the year and our family initial to my intro layouts. I took two shipping tags and layered elements on top of them. At the bottom of the page is my date, which I created using Thickers.

Larkindesign New Project Introduction!!!!! 2013 Project Life Intro Layout!!!

I have stitched the camera from Freckled Fawn to the tag at the top of the page, and then added a few glitter stars around it as well. This is so simple and quick but powerful!

Thank you for joining me today! If you want to learn more about this project, I encourage you to join me in the classroom over at In My Pocket Volume 02. I have discussed this project at great length and offer deeper insight into this project there! See you soon!

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

Hi everyone, today I am sharing my 2018 Project Life layout for Week 10! I am so excited to use my brand new collection called Sweet Chicks, which is available in the shop right now. I designed this collection with all things sweet in mind – sweet chicks, sweet love, sweet popsicles!

Let’s take a look at this bright, fun layout!

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

Our stories this week included a fun dinner at Sonic where all the kids got completely hyped up on milkshakes, a check-up at the hospital for Addison, date night, the announcement for Clique Kits, and me learning how to use my curling wand. 

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

I began the layout with the date card, because it is always a predictable place to dive right in. I’ve used these die cut numbers from Studio Calico to notate the week, and the Pink Paislee alphabet stamps from Pick Me Up for the dates. Very simple and quick!

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

I had these little popsicles from Elle’s Studio and this was the perfect layout to use them on! The colors in my Sweet Chicks collection are happy – yellows, oranges, teals, and pinks dance together and I just adore it.

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

We had a date night, which has been a pretty regular occurrence lately, and always makes me so happy!  

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

I had the wood veneer floral from Studio Calico that was used on the back side of this layout, so for this side I simply layered a chipboard embellishment on top of the page protector. I love the texture it adds! I also made a point to include myself in this week’s layout. I have been learning how to use my curling wand (ha!) and took these quick snaps while waiting in the car line one day.

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

For the right hand side I had three photos and the fourth 4×6 pocket is perfect for more journaling. I’ve balanced the bright colors with the black and white in the collection here and just love it!

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

Addison had a health check-up at the hospital this week, so as we were walking from the parking deck I grabbed this snapshot of one of the towers. The sky was beautiful that day! This is a great way to capture these things where you don’t want to invade your teenager’s privacy but still want to document the event.

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

I am absolutely in love with these two cards from the collection! The Love card is also a patterned paper and that will go with anything! And the Say Yes card just makes me insanely happy! So fun!

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

More black and white in the collection, with this Wonky Squares pattern! That was so much fun to design and I’ve added simple dotted lines to journal and a few tiny embellishments. 

Sweet Chicks Product Release | 2018 Project Life Week 10 Process Video!!!

I’ve repeated the alphabet stamp here, this time using black ink. This card is perfect for a sentiment, journaling, or embellishing. You pick! I also love this photo: we were at World Market and I looked down at this mirrored coffee table. Definitely a fun perspective!

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!

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

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.

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

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.

Larkindesign Hybrid Scrapbooking | 2018 Project Life Week 06

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.

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

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!

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

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.
