Here's a round-up of my favorite papercrafting projects from 2014!
Why I love it: I don't scrapbook as often as I used to and I find it a bit of a struggle these days when I sit down to create a scrapbook page. I'm out of practice and I can feel it. However this page came together quickly and easily and magically!
Why I love it: I find drawing intimidating. I think most people do. Looking at the roller coaster in front of me I thought: there's no way that I can draw that. What a delight to discover that I could!
Why I love it: How can you not love Gelli Printed journals? I love the way these books turned out and I love using them!
Why I love it: It was super duper tough to narrow all the inktober lettering pieces down to two favorites, but I chose these ones because they stood out to me. They're graphic and bold and I love the sayings. Also they don't seem effortful. I love that!
Why I love it: I consider myself a terrible card maker, so imagine my surprise and delight when this turned out so spectacularly! It's painterly and yet not to busy. Just perfect!
Why I love it: As I mentioned, it was a rough year for scrapbooking. Had some trouble finding my groove. This layout is unusual for me (subdued color palette) but I love it. Love the design, the tags, the stained doily, the sparkly letters. Love it all!
Why I love it: I love the colors. I love the texture in the silhouette. I love how everything is so crisp and yet melds together. This print simply works.
Why I love it: I am still head-over-heels in love with Project Life. This photo is meant to simply be a representation of Project Life in general. I haven't shared a lot of photos of my Project Life this year, but I'm still going strong and planning on continuing into 2015. In fact, I just ordered up new binders and sheet protectors for the coming year!
It's funny how time away from a craft makes it difficult to do. That's part of the reason that I art journal every single day. I don't want to get out of practice. And I love other daily projects -- like #inktober or #CarveDecember. In the past I've participated in Layout-A-Day (creating a scrapbook page every single day). It's amazing how good you get at something when you practice. Now I simply need to find a way to cram some more hours into the day...let you know when I figure that one out!
Thanks for stopping by!
