The new winter issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is available. It actually became available in December but it was all December Daily® all-the-time around here.
In 2016 my column included a traditional layout and a Project Life® spread and a digital download (click here to see all the free downloads from this issue) centered around a story spark.
Today I'm sharing the full images of my layouts from this article here but invite you to click over and download your own FREE digital copy of the magazine and read the full article that includes much more about the concept and ideas related to each layout. You can also become a subscriber and have it delivered to your home address (awesome) or pick it up at Barnes & Noble. They have even set it up where you can download just a PDF of my article: Spark Your Story.
Here's a look at the pages I created for this issue with a focus on the theme Love You Because.
I also want to take this chance to say a wholehearted thank you to Scrapbook & Cards Today for the opportunity they have given my to share my stories through their publication and for their wonderful friendship. I've decided to simplify some of my processes for 2017 and won't be contributing to the magazine this year.
First up, a Project Life® spread that tells the story of the week of May 23-29, 2016:
Sometimes when I'm approaching a Project Life® week I like to carry a specific theme through all the stories. For this spread I used the "love you because" word art download and the December Daily® Calendar Stamp Set to create five journal cards where I identified five things I love and wrote a little bit about why. You can see more about those below:

And my layout:
A full page, 12x12 photo is the foundation for my story and the sky became home for a fun collection of circle embellishments.
