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.

Duplicate Monkeys!

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015


I don’t do it often, but for the boys’ baby books, I had a few layouts to duplicate. One for their baby book and one for me to keep. I made this Monkey layout for the CREATE magazine but forgot I wanted two copies:



I couldn’t find another sheet of the sock monkey paper but really wanted to keep the same theme so I made my own sock monkey paper. I used a Recollections paper for the background and a Silhouette cut (supposed to be a juggling sock monkey) for the big guy.

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.

Tobin’s Chalk Art

Tobins Chalk Art color adjust

IMG_5272 color


Last summer, Tobin was starting to get interested in drawing. He spent a lot of time outside on the driveway drawing with chalk.  I wanted to capture some of his first art, so I got up on a ladder to snap some shots.  This Scrapbook Generation sketch was the perfect way to incorporate the artwork photos as well as Tobin in process.  See what more designers did with the same sketch in the August 2014 issue of CREATE magazine!
