    Use Your Paper Stash Tutorial | Jamie Waters

    Hi there! Right before my next kit comes, I separate all my embellishments and paper into their files. The paper all gets grouped together with past months, the embellishments get tossed into a box, and the stamps into another. I often dig into these stashes when doing personal projects or my planner decorations. For this layout, I wanted to combine a bunch of my favorite paper designs into one page. I loved the creative freedom I had to mix my months up!

    #NSDSC15 | Challenge 10 - Keep it Simple with Stephanie Bryan and Leena Loh

    It's easy to add and add to your pages (after all, there are so many pretty things to use!), but it's also fun to take a step back and go minimalist with a project for a fresh perspective! Start with what you're photographing - and don't think meals or downtime don't count as great inspiration. Scrap every bit of your day, from morning coffee to your after-dinner wind-down by keeping things simple.
