NEW vOl.25 overlays!

Well, Jessica at Vol.25 has done it yet again! She has put out yet another amazing overlay set AND an amazing 365 book template. Being part of her design team I was able to put together a few pages to let you all see the amazingness of her work and give you some ideas on how you could use them. Mostly, these refer to photographers or scrapbookers out there that have and know how to use photoshop…and if you DO the possibilities with these sets are endless!

On a side note….I was all pumped to do the 365 challenge this year (which is a photo a day for the year) thanks to the wonderful Jess and her inspirational book that would allow me to capture so many little things throughout my week, that in the end would remind me of all the things we often forget at the end of the year. But, after really considering it I realized that the 52 week challenge was a much better thing for me….I think it will allow for more creativity on my part and not so much pressure. ha! SO, I will be posting pictures on here from time to time, maybe even every week we shall see, and I will give a bit of story with it so you can see small memories we will make this year. 🙂

So, here are a few pages i put together… NOTE: that the frames I used on my pages are from the 365 book…sorta a mixture of the two. The sweetie pie frames are quite fun, they would be great on scrapbooking pages for sure!

ok enough blabbing. and on with it already. Be back with some new sessions in a bit!

you can purchase the sweetie pie overlays HERE and she is running an amazing special right now of 35% off her entire digital shop, so get em’ while their hot.

this below is me and my lovey Mr.H, and yes i was laughing, we were having such fun doing these… and the mother in laws amazing 23 window vw. we have a love for them in our fam. 🙂

Here is a picture of some of her pages in the  365 book, simply amazing! You can see and buy the book template here.



That is what we are calling her (well, mostly me).  She is our newest addition, an adventure waiting to happen.  She is a 65′  Aristocrat and in almost original condition.  I had been looking for quite some time for something that would fit all of us, and had character. And she fit us just perfectly. I found her online, and THAT night we took a drive up to Oregon to pick it up. Already an adventure.

I am going to be having a booth at a local barn show, and Hazel will be there with me. She will be my booth. So, of course I had to get her ready. I went to work scrubbing, painting and furnishing. My amazingly wonderful mother sewed new curtains and that just made it feel complete. I accesorized her with new pillows, vintage things, and an amazing print from Jess at Vol.25 that I knew I wanted as soon as I had a trailer. My grandma also passed down to me all her wonderful kitchen things from her trailer, things I remember as a kid on trips with her and grandpa in their camper….and that just makes me so excited to take a piece of those memories with us.

I will be posting pictures after this weekends show so you can see it all set up, if you are in the area come on out it is going to be a fantastic day!

So, without further adieu here is Hazel.


Christmas is near…..

well, maybe not NEAR but it is time to start thinking about Christmas pictures.  I will be posting some info soon on mini family sessions, but there will be limited dates available.  I wanted today to show a few of the Christmas cards that will be available this season, because they are delish this year!  There will be a gallery of cards to choose from after your session, and are all customized for you (there are ten to choose from)! Here are a few of the cards that will be available, some of my faves are from the ever so wonderful Jessica at Vol.25.  They are SO great!! If you are a photographer/scrapbooker you can purchase her cards templates as well.

So, here is a sneak peek!



So, how about for some fun news of new exciting things!?!? As I mentioned before Jessica of Vol.25 has asked me to join her overlay design team, made up of  nine other incredibly talented, creative ladies.  We will be working her overlays into our photos, and coming up with inspirational and creative ways to use them. I am so stoked, my creative juices are already flowing!!! So, from time to time you will see posts of new overlays that are coming out, and deals she is having on them.  So, be prepared to be inspired!! She is incredibly talented, and inspires me continually and as an artist new ways of thinking, and pushing myself feels so wonderful! I just love her!

Here is my bio on her page, and upcoming will be a q&a….so excited!

We made birthday cards with ours, but are already coming up with more creative ways to use them!  Who doesn’t love a cupcake!?
