Ali Edwards Shares Her Newest Contributions to Scrapbooking

I think Ali Edwards is one of the pioneers in changing the way we look at scrapbooking. She has said before that she refers to it as Life Art and that’s a great way to describe the work she does. Here she is being interviewed by Paper Clipping at CHA about her newest stamps for Technique Tuesday.

Creative Approaches

I’m always fascinated to see how people navigate their own creative process. I recently stumbled across Michelle Wooderson’s site and was fascinated by how organized she is when completing her Project Life and her One Little Word projects. I actually loved her mapping out of Project Life so much that I am now testing our her system for myself. Already it feels easier and more comprehensive to tackle the weeks when I have the exact details noted in advance. I’ve never realized before how organization really can help you be more creative and productive. I always knew this applied to work (when my desk is clean I get so much more work done) but I never thought about applying it to creative ventures. So, thanks Michelle! I really love when creative people give us a peak into their “Behind-the-Scenes” and I hope they continue to do so.

PS Michelle – I also love your use of a typewriter for your journaling. So crisp + clean + pleasing to the eye.

Workspaces: Jennifer Pebbles

I would like to periodically profile some inspiring workspaces. This one belongs to Jennifer Pebbles. I love her use of a cohesive color palette and lots of storage options. It looks open, airy and bright. Nice work, Jennifer!

Lucky Charm by Dear Lizzy

I have been a longtime fan of Elizabeth Kartchner (Dear Lizzy) and I’m thrilled to share her upcoming line with American Crafts. Here are more details from the AC site.

Featuring an endearing assortment of charm bracelet icons – flowers, horses, hot air balloons, hearts, and arrows – Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm is a dreamland of color and patterns. Sweet pinks, aqua, yellow, red-orange and cream are grounded with a fun navy blue that make this collection charming. Lucky you.

This inviting collection features 24 patterned papers, plus five specialty papers such as printed vellum and gold metallic ruffle paper. Thickers and stickers abound, with new additions making an appearance including die cut cards. Brilliant!

MY GIRL by American Crafts

Love this new line, MY GIRL, from American Crafts. Pastel, sweet, innocent and girlie! Couldn’t be more perfect! AC details the new line with this picture perfect description:

Sugar and spice and everything nice is just the beginning of My Girl. A palette of pinks, yellows, light blue, and gray create the adorable backdrop for handwritten type and doodles of flowers, butterflies, strawberries, and speech bubbles. My Girl is a precious collection for young ladies of any age.

This darling line features 12 double-sided patterned papers, plus three new specialty papers with thoughtful details. Handwriting Thickers, a host of various sticker styles, and an adorable Daybook are joined by new embellishments, such as ribbon bows, paper clip fabric yo-yos, and printed wood veneer tags.



CHA 2013

we r memory keepers 3x4 punch

I have seen so many pictures coming out of CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) Conference that are beyond inspiring! It makes me SO eager to attend next year. I would like to make this my goal for 2013, to build up Daily Moxie to the point where I can justify going to this insider conference. One of the exciting things that I have seen coming out of the conference is the We R Memory Keepers 3×4 Punch that will beautifully complement Becky Higgins GENIUS creation, Project Life. I have written before about my love for Project Life. I’ve been doing the project for three years now and have turned my whole family onto this brilliant way of recording our lives. All the tiny, beautiful details can be perfectly captured in these simple, straight-forward binders. I will be periodically sharing my own work on Project Life. I’m using a combination of Heather Bailey’s Olive Edition and Elise Blaha’s Seafoam Edition.

I also love everything Amy Tangerine creates! Her colors are so vibrant they literally jump off the page. She is certainly inspiring!

I can’t wait to see what the next few weeks bring. I’m sure all my favorite scrapbooking ladies will be sharing their great finds from CHA. I feel that there is so much creative growth and expansion in the world of scrapbooking and design and I’m looking forward to exploring it further on Daily Moxie.
