September was the month I got a great deal of work done for my Etsy and Dawanda shops, took photos, wrote descriptions and listed everything I still have on stock, getting ready to sell out and close the shops in the end of 2017. Continue Reading
August was such a busy month, being still on vacation until the 12th and them getting back home and making everything ready for starting the school year.
Hello friends, July was a great month for us as we left for Summer Vacation in Lisbon and in the beautiful island of Sao Miguel. The kids were at school until the 14th, and with the boy leaving elementary school this Summer, there were lots of hellos and goodbyes around here.
Do you remember this layout I did for the little girl’s album that I shared last week? I really like how it turned out and also that I included three photos and journaling about the days in Lisbon without filling a book (BTW I am feeling a handbook with photos + words from this and other previous trips to Portugal).
You probably know this story as good as I know: there is a new amazing collection in your favorite scrapbook store and you have to have it all. You can’t wait to start using it and you sure do but them, the next collection comes, you get it too, and the “old” papers stacked away, with your stash, which keep growing and growing and never get used.
Hello and welcome to May 2017! This month I kept the documentation quite simple. One 12×12″ page per week, 16 photos.
Looking to this pages I see lots of stories I want to tell in the kids albums. Like the little girl’s love for her pink Nike Pullover, and that she is growing her bangs…
…and how the boy loves his skateboard, a gift from his aunt.
I might scrap about the end of the handball Season, how the boys lost the title in the last minute and how sad they were.
and about how the girl’s team won the Season in the very last game, and surprised everybody with their fierce and team work.
and how awesome all these kids were.
I still did not scrap a layout about my mother’s stay here this year.
And I really have to make a page with this same photo of the little girl waiting to give one of her Handball coach a flower on her Wedding Day. About how she was so impressed by the bride, who, in her words, looked like a princess.
There are so many little stories in our lives, waiting to be told. That’s why I love scrapbooking so very much.
Thank you for stopping by today.
Hello friends, here’s to my Project Life pages for April.
I lost lots of blog posts last month while I was trying some other templates for the blog. Some posts were replaced with advertisement content and I had no choice but to delete the posts and now I am re-writing them.
So, let’s do it!
This is a close up of the Lego City in the boy’s room. There are actually a city and a forest where all the princess and elves live.
Weeks 14 and 15:
Title cards from the printable set “Weekly” available on my Etsy shop.
Week 16 was “Week in the Life”, and I documented each day of the week with a two pages spread.
For week 17 I created a two pages spread. I usually take more photos and write more after a Week in the Life documentation:
That was April in the Baer’s household. Thanks for stopping by today!
Last month Shimelle started a month long photo challenge at Instagram called Scrapbooking is my Super Power. I loved the idea and joined the fun. Almost everyday I shared something scrapbook to the prompts and also followed other scrapbookers that played along.
She started another challenge in July, this time is about titles and journaling. Be sure to visit Shimelle’s site and read about the idea behind the prompts.
Here is a new layout I created for the first prompt “Oh happy day”.
I pretty sure will not keep scrapping a page everyday for the challenge as I am heading out on vacation this week but I’ll try to make something in advance and keep sharing on my Instagram account.
Hope to see you there!
