We partnered up again this year with Shabby Miss Jenn Designs to print her calendars. We just love Shabby Miss Jenn’s gorgeous calendars. They are so easy to use.
If you have Photoshop or Elements:
Open them up in Photoshop, add your photo and trinkets. Add any important events. Save the calendars as JPGs and then pull them into our software to place them on each page as a SINGLE PAGE BACKGROUND. Remove the preformatted grid from the page. If you cannot delete it, resize it so it’s tiny and drag if off the page so you cannot see it. Upload and complete your order.
If you are using our software only:
Import the PNG files into the software and place them on the page as an overlay. Set the opacity to 100%. Drop your photo behind the overlay. Add text. Remove the preformatted grid from the page. If you cannot delete it, resize it so it’s tiny and drag if off the page so you cannot see it. Upload and complete your order.
Like many scrappers, I am sometimes better as a collector of kits than I am of getting those memories scrapped. I used to just get a kit, and then find a photo I liked, and play. That worked for a bit, but then at the end of the year, I had oodles of events, funny shots or memories that NEEDed to be scrapped. I would be overwhelmed.
The date was the file and date that the camera dumped them. I now had a paper list to select photos for to use on my pages. Now, I could either go shopping or look on my EHD at what I already had! This really has helped me so much. I look for challenges that will give me that extra oomph to do a page.
You can see the highlighted dates are pages that are completed. I looked and say I had not done the school lunches photos, and there were a few of them. I was busy doing some challenges over at The Lily Pad, and they had a scrap lift challenge, and I thought I could use this to do the school lunch memory. I was challenged now to get her done! Great motivation:
Now I could cross that off my list of Memory to Scrap! I kept looking at the Porta-Potty photos. Did I really want porta-potty in my year book? Of course I did!! So, another challenge at The Digi Chick that came with a free template also was offered.
There are so many shops that offer inspiration and challenges to help us scrap pages, they give coupons, discounts and a whole lot of love in their galleries. I hope this helps you to get unstuck and get those pages done. I am hoping to send my 2012 book in by Valentine’s Day!

This Project Life has totally blown me away, how’s about you? Becky Higgens is the name I hear as the beginning of this wild wonder. I went and read her blog and saw her products! Wow all over again! This is just amazing! I have to admit, my palms get all sweaty at the thought of cutting photos or doing this without my handy dandy Control Z(undo power). This is why I love the galleries, and see that there are others in the DIgi~World that do this with the power of a computer! Look at some of these inspirations:
Amyjaz has started the year off with a bang, and apparently she designs these dohickeys too! Pretty cool inspiration. These journaling cards are what I love too:
This is one of those projects there is no wrong or right way, just do it your way! I think this is kinda cool!
I gave it a whirl, and did a page:
Now, I am not hooked, but so love looking at what others do with this phenomenon! I would love to hear how you do it, if you are in this fun fad! I was also thinking how cool they would be printed at My Pic Tales with the Wire Bound Photo Books:
Happy Scrapping however project you use for your life!
