New in the Shop | My Type

Yes- I am a married woman. But- things like this happen- and I have to admit that, well, I have a crush.

Who is this scoundrel that has stolen my heart? Well- it’s a sweet little teal typewriter that my Mom bought me! (I’ll be sharing that with you in a post later this weekend) – Needless to say- my new love has, as always, worked it’s way onto the drawing board in my latest design, MY TYPE.  It is on sale this weekend for 20% off- and this weekend,  I have added the Journal Cards as a gift to you with your purchase of the page kit!

The design has a crisp retro feel and is packed with type styles, and keys, pretty roses and of course, old school typewriters.  I have been drawn to mixing old and new like this lately- I think it adds a charming touch to layouts- but keeps them feeling fresh as well.  I also worked to be sure this was a “valentines” kit- but something you could turn to in your stash to tell the stories about all the different things that capture your heart.  I think the creative team did a terrific job in capturing this in their layouts below-


You can take a closer look at the design and see even more layouts by visiting the shop here– and if you have any layouts made with the kit that you would like to share- pop them in my layout gallery at the Lilypad, or share them on social media using the tag #joycreated- I’d love to see what you create!


what joy will you create today?

Crafting the JOY and “meh” of Winter

I have a love-hate relationship with winter. Come November 1 after all the pumpkin spice palooza- I can’t wait to cozy things up with knits and layers and all things comfy-cozy, and then comes the magic of the holidays, the thrill of the first snow and the delight of slow cooked dinners and nights by […]

The Joy of Challenges

After the holidays where we give so much of ourselves to others, January gives us a welcome chance to look inward and see how we can refill our own buckets.  It’s also the time of year at the Lilypad when we host a “Month of Challenges”  where each day a different memory keeping challenge is […]

Jump start your layouts | looking backwards

It’s been said that photographs are a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. I love that thought. Because, if we can return to a time- then it’s never really lost is it? Not to us, or to anyone who can see and read and feel what that image means to us. We can tell […]

Simplifying December with Traveler’s Notebooks

Especially this time of year, when there are so many stories to be captured- I wanted to make it a point to scrap more often- to tell more stories- but in a simpler way. I love Project Life- and I am a big fan of mini books. It’s only natural then that my attention has […]
