Goodbye Summer | Layout Roundup

There’s something magical about the end of summer.  These last weeks of August have a golden glow- not as bright and happy as those first days of summer. But filtered with a nostalgic feel.  It’s like we are already looking back on summer days, even before they are over.  Maybe it’s because the next chapter of a Autumn is almost larger than life- with back to school, crisp weather, colorful crunchy leaves and all things Holiday- but August is like the slow Sunday sunset of summer.

There are a few scrapbooking layouts created with my summer collection that capture this feeling- and I wanted to share them with you.  Maybe they will inspire you to capture the feeling of these August days- maybe they will just nudge you to tell the stories of whatever season you are in as you read this. Every season has a special story- how awesome is it that as memory keepers, we can tell those stories in such an artful way?

craft the joy of WEEKEND VIBES

These days my thoughts have been turning more to the comforts of home-and that comfy vibe worked it’s way onto the drawing board in my new design-WEEKEND VIBES!  It’s filled with all the cozy joys of being indoorsy on the weekend- books, warm cups of goodness, bagels to brunch on, a fireplace to cuddle by and […]
