It has been a good scrappy year for me. I have had many wonderful opportunities and have made really great friends in this industry.
This year brought bittersweet sadness as two of my long-time committments ended. Both The Nook and Scrapstreet.com closed their doors. I admit that I really miss working with the kits...it motivated me to scrap creatively and expand depending on the product. I also ended a year of being an ongoing guest designer for Bella Blvd, a team I hope to revisit again someday!
Along with good-byes, I got to say a fabulous hello, joining the Lily Bee team. Sometimes a door is opened when you least expect it. I will continue with Teresa Collins and Webster's Pages...they are my family. I scrap joyfully for these companies and it is a gift to stand alongside many of my scrappy idols.
I do hope to scrap more frequently this upcoming year. To not be frozen by so many photos and just go...
For now, here are my top layouts in no particular order.
I just love these photos as they capture my daughter's love of life...I also dig the white space and sunrays.
This one also shows really fun photos and I wanted the rest of the layout to match that feel. It just fell into place.
This one just means so much...one of those mommy stories I have to tell.
I picked this one because it really expressed me at my most creative...that web was made from Lily Bee stamps.
Again, this one just sums up how blessed I feel. It is about the subject as much as it is the design.
I love this page including the cluster of goodies. This is one of my more reliable page formats.
Sweet photos, a winking Santa, that green background. Love how this is structured with lots of movement still.
This speaks for itself. I adore this guy.
Again, creativity that was initiated from an assignment. I really dig all the bookplates.
Here is that familiar page format, but with the ovals...it feels fresh.
I like the big elements on this one and the horizontal feel.
I just shared this one, but I really like it. Free, layered, white space...meaningful.
Happy New Year!
