One Little Word 2014

In January I signed up to do Ali Edwards' One Little Word for 2014.  This is where you pick one word and through out the year focus on that word --- You live with it. You invite it into you life. You let it speak to you.  Each month Ali posts creative prompts to help you relate to your word. 

My one little word for this year is FREE / FREEDOM! I had been reading in my Bible and this word just really kept coming back to me -- as if God was telling me that He wants me to let go and be FREE in HIM!!!! I am still a long way from where I need to be but as long as I keep moving forward I am making progress.

Here are a few pages from my OLW journal (I am actually using one of CTMH's MY Smash Books for my journal.)
This is the opening pages of my journal that explains the meaning behind my word and also has the words to "Break Every Chain" which is my theme song for this year! 
This is my intentions page and is where I have reflected what I want to get out of my OLW this year!

The February prompt was to have a reflection for each month and 12 action steps.  I do have this in my journal but I did not take pictures of these pages.

Here is my March creative prompt - we were to create a vision board related to our word / life.  Many people were doing there's one a canvas or in a  frame but I wanted mine directly in my journal.  I had been pinning many quotes and images on Pinterest that were related to my word, so that is what I used to create my vision pages:

I am really enjoying this workshop!

TTT: Studio J - Britt's Wedding

Tuesday's Tips, Techniques & Tutorials - Studio J

So this past week I worked on getting some scrapbooking done by using Studio J! Studio J is so fast, easy & simple - I was able to create 13 layout pages of Britt's wedding as well as our cruise from last year -- all in just a few days.  Then with the special this month I only had to pay $5 for each layout! That is such an amazing deal -- one you cannot pass up.

Here are the layout pages from Britt's wedding & reception. One of the great things about Studio J is that you can change the colors of any of the papers to make it fit your color scheme. Britt had 7 different colors in her wedding so I was able to use embellishments and papers to pull in all the colors on a few of the pages.

One more tip for using SJ -- the Wise Guys layout and the Dancing with Daddy layout were the same template on SJ.  However, I manipulated some of the photo wells ad rotated the left page to give the layouts a different look.

There truly are an endless combinations of ways to scrapbook using Studio J! And remember - this month is only $5 per layout!!!! Contact me today to get started for FREE!

TBT - Studio J Style!!!

Throwback Thursday

In honor of this month's amazing special on Studio J layouts --- only $5 each -- I thought I would share the very first SJ layout I created.

These layouts are of Katie's wedding from 2009 and now I am currently working on Britt's (I will share them when I get them finished)!  I have to say as much as I loved Studio J in 2009, I can honestly say I love it so much more now.  Studio J has added so many more features since it was first introduced and what is really great is it is completely FREE to use.  Your account is FREE and you can create for FREE. You never pay for anything until you are ready to order your pages.  And this month a 2 page 12x12 layout spread is only $5!!!!!! - You can;t even get 2 8x10 prints for that price, much less high quality archival layouts that allow you to not only preserve your pictures but also your thoughts and make it look AMAZING all at the same time!!!! So what are you waiting for, click here and get started today.  If you have questions or would like a tutoring session, contact me!!!!
