I've been busy this week. Busy making stuff.
First up is a new project kit available through Cocoa Daisy.
As many of you have seen in the past, one of my favorite projects is the printer's tray I filled with photos and little found bits & pieces a few years back. I was excited to see 7gypsies come out with a line of trays recently - much easier to put together a project when everyone has access to the same tray.
This new project kit includes everything I used in the sample above, full color instructions (including a "map" I created with the dimensions for each of the spaces on the tray), a one-page PDF of printable elements, and additional supplies that coordinate with the kit for those of you who want to add more.
Kit is now available at Cocoa Daisy.
The second project I worked on earlier this week was a layered template photobook package called Rejoice. This concept has been in my mind and on my heart for awhile and I was really excited to finally get it all together.
Here's a look at my completed book at Shutterfly:
The main thing I wanted with this photobook was for it to be a celebration: a simple celebration of full-page photos that document the love between two kids paired with some of my favorite passages from the bible (many of which include the word "rejoice").
I went for a super-simple design, including on the cover where I used one word on top of a
cream textured cardstock. You could easily use a photo (or collage of
photos) or another pattern. That's the beauty of layered templates. I'm actually really looking forward to seeing what other people do with this design as a foundation for their own projects.
The layered template package includes 10, 12x12 pages of my favorite bible passages (+ an opening page) and 10 different grid templates (my favorite simple-grid designs). The package also includes Shutterfly ready pages, cover, back and spine.
Looking forward to the arrival of my photobook this week.

Around here I'm looking forward to a weekend with absolutely nothing planned except hanging out here at home. Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend whatever your plans. A fun giveaway post will be up tomorrow morning.
