In the Spotlight | COZY UP

Have you ever been organizing your craft supplies and come across something that you absolutely adore- but forgot you had? Call it momnesia or too many crafty tabs open at one time- but I think it happens to all of us!

Just recently, I was collecting some favorite FJ layouts to add to a Pinboard and I found myself thinking- man! I forgot how much I love that design! And that got me thinking- wouldn’t it be great to put a spotlight on a design each month so we can fall in love all over again?

Seeing a stash fave in a new light, and putting it back on the screen to play with means really getting the full value out of your kits! And, if you don’t have the spotlight design in your stash- I thought it would fun to give a great price you you can add it- with no guilt!

For January- I wanted to feature a design that’s perfect to play with right now during these colder days– and one that has been a Fan Fave for sure – COZY UP!

Let’s make it even more fun!- how about a challenge?

Spotlight Savings: If you don’t have this design in your show- no worries! All month long you can save 30% on the design!

Spotlight Challenge: This month I challenge you to make some joy using the design to create a layout! To play along, you can use a template if you’d like, but the only product that can be used in the layout is this specific design. You could win a $10 gift certificate to my store! 

To play:  upload your layout made using only products from this design to the ForeverJoy Gallery at the Lilypad and then post a link to the layout in the blog comments below. Deadline for gallery upload is January 31 6pm EST.  Gift Certificate will be awarded Feb 1st  to qualifying layout chosen randomly by

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 […]

Crafting a Joyful Thanksgiving

I recently read a terrific article about the joy of anticipation.  It brought to mind a wisdom I try to live by- the joy of the ride is just as important as the thrill of the destination. It struck me that this month, November, is a journey and a destination all wrapped in one beautiful, […]


Halloween is behind us- and there is no doubt the the Holiday season is in the air.  But if you have been following me for awhile- you know I am one who likes to slow it down a little and enjoy the autumn goodness that November has to offer.  The cozy at home vibes inside […]
