Mobile Workflow for Year Long Projects

This month here at Scrapaneers we’re highlighting tips to help out with sequential projects. To be honest, I have only attempted one sequential project. In fact, it is one that I’ve started several years and never kept up with it. This year, however, I may succeed with the help of embracing some help from my phone. I came up with a mobile workflow to help me keep things on track.

Hi there scrappy friends!  Have you ever had trouble deciding between two background papers that you want to use in your layout?  Or you really love one, but there’s a small piece of your layout that just needs another color behind it to help it pop? Janelle here today with a quick tip for combining papers how to create an ombre effect using gradients.  This is a super simple thing to do and the possibilities are endless!

Sequential Projects: Planning Ahead

This month the Peers are sharing tips and tricks for documenting sequential projects, like December Daily, a Week in the Life, or even keeping the momentum going with Project Life.  As we head towards the end of the year, though, I find that the holiday season tends to throw me a curve ball, adding to my already busy schedule – and cutting back on my creative time!  Let’s take a little poll, shall we? Raise your hand if you’re ready for the holiday season and everything it entails? Uh-huh. Thought so.  If you’re like me, the end of the year is filled with what seems to be one “thing” after another. Halloween. Thanksgiving. Hanukkah and Christmas. Oh, and then New Year?!  (don’t get me started in trying to believe that 2017 is just a few months away!)  Visits to or from family members, or perhaps a family vacation for the holidays. Gift shopping. Social events. Despite being overwhelmed and stressed out, at times, each year I still document the holidays as best as I can. Why?  Because I create scrapbooks. It’s what I do. There have been successful projects, and some, well, not so much. Today I wanted to share with you some of my ‘lessons learned’ in the hopes that something resonates with you and makes tackling a sequential project seem more within reach.

November Challenge Fit

November 2016 Challenge

I love layouts that are black and white with just a pop of color. They always seem to catch my eye in galleries and I can’t resist a kit with black and white patterned papers. On this layout I challenged myself to put the text on a curve that mimicked the curve of the paper. I referred to Amanda Taylor’s classes “The Power of the Pen Tool” and “The Art of Journaling” to help me make a type path. It’s not perfect but I”m okay with it. I still need a little practice.

Day One App to the Journaling Rescue

Do you ever feel like summer gets shorter but more hectic every year? Fall brings a slower rhythm to my life and I can seem to get some organizing done before the next big rush of the holiday season.  Summer already feels like a blur and I have a lot of pictures that I’m determined are not going to be stuck inside my phone or Dropbox storage.  I need help to remember all the little details so I’ve been using the Day One app on my phone and it has been a life-saver when it comes to journaling about those little things that happened this past summer.  Behind every great picture, there is an even better story which is why I’m so excited to share with you how to use the Day One app — I love passing on great things that make my life easier and give me a way to cut down on mental clutter!

Sequential Projects: Ready, Set, Go!

Hello everyone and welcome to November!  I don’t know about you, but I am trying desperately not to hyperventilate now that we are moving into the heart of the Fall/Winter holiday season.  In an effort to distract you from all the craziness, the Peers are going to be focusing on Sequential Projects this month.  Those daily, weekly and monthly projects that we love to love to think about, but sometimes find it difficult to complete.  Stay tuned throughout the month for some articles that will provide inspiration for different types of projects, help get you organized both before and during the project and dial up your digital design skills.  Ready for some sequential project inspiration?  Then come on in and join me . . .

The Thankful 30: A Gratitude Project

Welcome to The Thankful 30: A November Gratitude Project

Welcome to the Thankful 30: A November Gratitude Project hosted by Scrapaneers.com.

 

What is the Thankful 30?

The Thankful 30 is a simple project that focuses on our need to celebrate life, show gratitude, and remind ourselves of our blessings during one of the busiest months of the year.

 

There are multiple ways to work on your project throughout the month:

  • Meditate on one word daily following the Thankful 30 Calendar. Focus on how the word manifests its self in your daily routine throughout the day.
  • Snap a photo of someone or something that represents a Thankful 30 word.
  • Write a short, simple message that conveys your thoughts about a Thankful 30 word. Share your message with us on our Facebook group.
  • Combine your photos, the daily cards and simple messages into a simple Project Life® monthly page.
  • Be mindful of the daily word and try to find ways to apply the gratitude to your life.

 

How to Get Started

Start with week one. Each Tuesday we’ll provide you with 7 cards + extras + an updated calendar that can help you reflect on a specific word for the day.
