Life on Film {An Early Summer}


We had some beautiful weather last week... Days where the temperature reached glorious summer heights... And we enjoyed each and every moment of it!

A Little Bit of Pretty {The Hunger Games}


I rarely jump on any bandwagon... At least I try not too anyways... But I have to admit... I really, really liked 'The Hunger Games'... I read all three books in only a few days... And actually slowed down a bit near the end because I just didn't want it to all be over... Katniss and Peeta are everywhere these days... Including in this beautiful stylized shoot via 'Style Me Pretty'...

The Medium {To Have and to Hold}


The brand new wedding collection from 'Ruche'... To get married again... Sigh...

Weekend Project {Confetti Tablecloth}


A few weeks ago, my dear friend Jess sent me a link to a wonderful project from 'Oh Happy Day'... This simple and lovely confetti tablecloth would make a great addition to future parties!

Our dear friend Chisso is quite the photographer... He's the unofficial, official photographer for our church... He takes a lot of photos and he takes beautiful photos... He shared these two precious shots from our last Fellowship Lunch... Thank you Chisso!

Weekend Project {Photobooks}


Over the last few years, I've posted several of the photobooks I've created for our family here on the blog... I've had a few of you contact me, asking how I created these photobooks... I've been scrapbooking for years now... And I've always really enjoyed it... About three years ago, I began to wonder about using Photoshop to create digital scrapbooks... At the time, I had one little girl and another on the way, so the thought of creating on my computer and not taking up the amount of physical space that regular scrapbooking required was very appealing... I'm also a bit of a perfectionist and I love the flexibility of creating in Photoshop... 

After a wee bit of searching, I found a lot of free resources out there to get me started... I learned how to use layers in Photoshop (this is a great tutorial on layered templates) and my first photobook of our trip to Paris was born! Of course, the free resources only got me so far so I began shopping at some of my favourite digital shops... 

My top three favourite Digital Scrapbooking Shops:

I create all my pages in Photoshop as psd files... When I'm completely happy with them, I flatten and save them as jpeg files... I've used both Blurb and Shutterfly to publish my photobooks... I upload each page as a jpeg and then fill the entire page with the single image... 

If you don't have Photoshop (which is totally, totally worth the investment... It's used more than any other program on my computer!) Shutterfly offers some great options to create lovely photobooks with a scrapbooked look... Simply upload your photos and then drag and drop them!

I recently started designing my own line of digital scrapbooking papers and elements... My newest kit, Hanna is my favourite so far!
 New to Digital Scrapbooking? Design House Digital has a great tutorial to get you started! Why not give digital scrapbooking a try this weekend?

And don't forget, today is the final day to enter the giveaway for a print of your choice from 'Yellow Button Studio'... I'll be choosing a winner tonight!

Life on Film {Olivia's First Month}


Our little Olivia is nearly four months old now... And I've been meaning to post this for several weeks now... I've done a first month album for all three girls... This is the first one I've done digitally... And it was a lot of fun! It's such a joy to look back... At what was only a few months ago and yet it feels like Livy has been with us forever... It's amazing how quickly life changes... I can't remember what it was like when she wasn't here... Enjoy!

And don't forget to enter the giveaway for a print from 'Yellow Button Studio' yet?
