Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

January in Maine Layout

I ran across these older photos a few weeks ago and knew I wanted to pull them out and use them with the amazing January Monthly Moments products!  They were a perfect fit!


Scenic photos, like this one above, are so fun to use as title blocks.  I die-cut the "january" from white cardstock and adhered it in place.  I then was able to die-cut a Summer Sunrise star using the Star Gazer dies and tie it in place with a little white thread.  

January detail

Underneath that I added a small label from Simply Framed, stamped in Ocean Tides.

Good times

The block next door to that is one of the stunning pages from the journal card pad.  I didn't have to do much with it since it was already printed with this beautiful pattern that I didn't want to cover up!

Good times detail

I did add a strip of Summer Sunrise striped paper followed by an orange baker's twine accent.  I punched a circle out of one of the printed journal cards and stamped it with this sentiment from A Few Pointers using Smokey Shadow ink.  An Ocean Tides button finishes it off.

Field notes

This journaling block is another one of the great ones from this month's journal card pad.

Field notes detail

I accented the corner of this journaling block with a map image from Summer Camp, added in Aqua Mist ink.  "Field notes" was added from the same set in Smokey Shadow, while the snowflake details are from Monthly Moments: January in Summer Sunrise.


For the next pocket I used a photo of my mother sledding with Owen for the first time.


I made this little clip using the Memory Clips die with one of our coasters and Summer Sunrise  cardstock.  I stamped it with Clip Tips to finish it off.  It clips nicely right onto the pocket of the page protector.


I die-cut through the photo for something different, then placed the stamped speech bubble behind it.

Sledding banner

This star patterned journal card from the new pad is one of my favorites!  I created this litle banner with another little scrap from the collection.  I stamped it with an arrow and phrse from Simply Framed.  I then added some notes in my own handwriting and stamped a sledding phrase from Monthly Moments: Janaury.


I just love this photo of Owen!  It's hard to believe how much he has grown since then!

Frozen closeup

I accented the side of the photo with this adorable "Frozen" checklist image.  It's heat embossed onto Smokey Shadow cardstock.  I created a label by stamping the frame from Summer Camp onto one of the polka-dotted journal cards for this month and then cutting it out.  This is accented with some Type Strips II letters stamped in Orange Zest.


For the last block I used another one of the pre-orinted journal cards as the back drop.

Winter closeup

"Winter" was die-cut using the Block Alphabet dies..  I added a banner underneath which is stamped with another one of the great sentiments from Monthly Moments: January.  Three Small Sketched Stars die-cut from Summer Sunrise felt accent the focal point.

Now that you have seen a few of my creations, here are some of the amazing things that the team has created!


Ashley says, "The start of a new year, January brings a fresh new take on life. There's nothing better than snow that can bring that fresh start to life. To capture Lauren's first time "in" the snow, we snapped a few photos to document this exciting time for her. Check out how I used the color combination in this month's journal card collection and combined it with pops of colors from the photos to pull it all together."
