Oh my goodness friends. I didn't realize till now that I have not made any new post since November. How sad is that? But I'm sure you will understand how the holiday season can get pretty busy and blogging gets set aside.
But I do hope that you had a wonderful Christmas season and that 2017 started off well for you.
Today I have some exciting and fun news to share. Last year, I met my "scrappy soulmate sister" online. Yes there is such a thing!
I found Nicole aka ColieBing on YouTube early last year while I was desperately scouring for double page layout inspirations. She is one awesome scrapper and I love her process and how she views memory keeping. If you have not checked her channel yet, please do check it out here.
As we started chatting online, we've come up with a fun new way of sharing our love for scrapbooking via our own style. The monthly video series called "How We Celebrate" was born. I would like to personally invite you to join us once a month for the whole year as we document something important in our lives. Each of us will have a process video to share and maybe some extras along the way :)
For my part, I will share a two page sketch along with all of my pages. Yes, you read that right...12 unique double page layout sketch along with my finished page and a process video. 24 pages from two very passionate scrappers with different styles and process. For Nicole's video, please click here.
So if that sounds like something fun and inspirational to you.....please join us this year on this fun adventure. You can subscribe to our channels, pin the sketches and layouts you see from this blog, jump in and create your own "how we celebrate" layout and share with us. Lastly, don't forget to share with your scrappy friends. The more, the merrier.
So enough chit chat from me. Let's get on with my January sketch and layout....
For this sketch, I wanted to use some 4x6 photos. Because my photos were about snow and there's not much color in the photo itself, I decided to add small sprinkling of color through blocks of papers. I think this sketch can be used for any type of pages, especially if you want to use up some scraps.
And here are some more close ups...
Well, I hope you've enjoyed this post and again, if you are interested in more inspirations from me or Nicole, please check out our YouTube channels here and here.
Till next time,
