I think I'm finally getting back into some sort of groove in the studio. Thursdays through whatever I need of the weekend is set aside for working on piecings, with the early part of the week for putting them on layouts and other such stuff. For now, it seems to be working quite swimmingly…we'll see how well I can wrap all of my other responsibilities – and maybe get in some personal scrapbooking – around it once school starts!
I was able to get three new layouts completed this week. My goal – once the our weekly schedule works itself out – is to list two to three layouts, along with more of the less expensive items like borders and Simply Sets. Again…we'll see.
Happy Trails – I don't do them very often, but I always love cowboy/western themed layouts! I'm still cutting by hand, which makes me extra-thankful for the patterns made by Treasureboxdesigns. Hers are just a bit easier to cut by hand – with larger shapes and great layering.
Princess in Training – more Treasureboxdesigns patterns. This layout just reminds me of Hanna when she was three or four years old, and everything was all about dress-up, princesses and pink. As girly as they get!
S'more Fun – this layout is killing me! Somewhere between finishing it up and getting it photographed some of the blue cardstock at the top got bent. I've never had that happen before, and it's just making me sick. It's such a sweet layout – I couldn't bear to toss it, so I listed it with a lower starting bid and am crossing my fingers someone gives it a home.
Once Upon A Time – more girly and sweet, and I have to admit the pink and purple unicorn makes me way, way too happy =)
Don't Be A Scaredy Cat! – I can't believe how many requests I've had this summer for Halloween themed creations! I'm not sure if scrapbookers are getting ready for this year or trying to catch up, but I'm happy to oblige.
Sleepy Yet? – a simple little border for sleep-overs…which always come with that inevitable "aren't you sleeping yet?" moment. These patterns were created by Little Scraps of Heavens Designs. Positively darling, but definitely a little more work when I'm cutting by hand!
ABC 123 – only one Simply Set for this week, but I've got so many more planned as soon as I can fit them in. I'm not sure which I love more – the piecings or the paper!
And now, I'm at the part of the week I enjoy the most…a clean slate, a jotted list of what I'd like to maybe do for next week and new inspiration from my paper stash. I've still got new Disney paper that hasn't been touched, as well as a gorgeous and glittery new Fall line.
I can't wait to see where it takes me!
Shameless plug: I've been creating layouts, kits and custom scrapbooks for others for over 6 years now, and I still love it! I list new items weekly on eBay, and am also available for custom work.
