CREATE Magazine September: On the Coast

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015



I love, love, love the sketch this month for CREATE! I got right to work with my 6×6 paper pads constructing a super fun color scheme for these photos.  I wanted the beautiful pink flowers to jump off the page.  😉

Please stop by and see what my fellow designers did with this sketch and other inspirations this month in the September CREATE magazine.

Just in Our Own Front Yard

Monday, July 13th, 2015

Please stop by and see all of the amazing projects in July’s CREATE Magazine HERE!




We got a summer themed color challenge for the July CREATE magazine. Red, 3 shades of blue, tan, and white. I don’t usually get very many photos for the fourth of July but the red made me think of berries! These are pictures of us picking strawberries in our front yard.  What a treat!

For the CREATE journaling challenge this month, we showed off how to use a list. We went to this favorite park 3 days in a row while visiting San Jose so a list was a great way to recap the overall experience.

Our Little Monkey

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

View the May 2015 CREATE magazine HERE!



This layout was created for the birthday theme challenge for CREATE. I took photos of Calvin at his 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 1 3/4, and 2 year “birthdays” for comparison.  They really turn from babies into little kids during the second year.

Our Hidden Tree Fort

Thursday, May 21st, 2015




This layout was so hard for me! I was challenged by the March issue of CREATE to used chipboard.  I’m not a chipboard user. 😉 But I took my assignment VERY SERIOUSLY and thought long and hard about to do something a little different.  I decided to recreate the railing to our tree fort with chipboard to emphasize the photos. I actually used a needle and stitched rafia through the chipboard for dimension.  Read more about it in the magazine!
