Happy Friday! I can hardly believe that the end of the year is just one month away. I’ve got a lot of memory keeping catch-up to do and I’m hoping that by downsizing my 2014 Project Life album to a 6×8 will help me get caught up. I’ve got three new products for the November BYOC at The Lilypad, all of them geared for helping you round up and document your favorite memories! All three are 20% thru the weekend.
These layered templates are super versatile! Print the page out as is (template includes an optional drop shadow layer). Turn off the drop shadow layer if you prefer a clean graphic look or print with the drop shadow to add a realistic dimension to the page. You can also choose to print the background and photo separately if you prefer the layered look (like I did below). Adorn with a simple embellishment. I choose a tiny wood veneer heart, sprinkled with bronze glitter to match the tutu in the photo. Have I mentioned how totally obsessed I am with bronze?

Hi! It’s Kelly here and I am happy to bring you fresh inpiration in this edition of the picks from the press gallery. This is when we go through the Paislee Press gallery and instagram and search for the projects and layouts that really get our attention. This month’s picks are really amazing. I hope you enjoy them!
The first layout I would like to show you is by gaylemaupin called Owen-isms. She used Dialogue to create this great layout highlighting a quote by her son. I love the design here and the great journaling.
The next layout I would like to show you is Explore Paris by MelanieB using From Where I Stand. The first thing that grabbed my attention on this layout was that great photo. I love the black and white treatment paired with the soft colors of the papers.
I cannot say enough about this next layout called Good Morning by kewl_jive. She used Good Morning to create this gorgeous layout and I love everything about it! Wonderful element placement and photo treatment.
We found the next layout we would like to share on instagram. It is by julietteperkins and it was also using Good Morning. I love how she used the doodles on the background paper here and her simple design really draws attention to her photo.
That’s it for this edition of the picks from the press gallery. I hope you enjoyed looking at theses picks as much as I did! We would love to see what you’ve created with your paislee press product too! We encourage you to post your layouts at the paislee press gallery or on instagram with the hashtag #paisleepress. Thanks for looking and we’ll see you next time!

This Day In December
Per customer request, I’ve adapted my Week In Review Card Design for Documenting December Projects. Use these as filler cards or print out as is to use for free hand journaling.
NEW – Calendar Title Cards (4×6)
I’m excited to introduce a new Horizontal oriented Calendar design this year. The 4×6 size are ideal for Project life. Each template includes 2 different clipping masks and hand drawn month wordart. The calendars are available in two different formats: Sunday – Saturday or Monday. Simply choose your preferred format from the drop down window before adding it to your cart!
The month stamps are also available separately, as a digital stamp set.
2015 Calendar Journal Cards (3×4)
I have been scrapbooking regularly since 2007 and since then I have had our honeymoon, that we took in 2004, on my list of things I wanted to go back and scrapbook. I just figured that when I came across the collection that was perfect for those pictures I would do it. That is what happened when I saw the new On My Desk collection available at Gossamer blue. As soon as I opened up the box and saw all the gold accented elements and transparency cards I knew it would be perfect.
There are so many things that I love about this collection, but I have to say that one of my favorites is the gold vellum. So gorgeous that I had to devote an entire 6×8 page just to it!
Back in 2004 we didn’t have the best camera or the best photography skills but I love even the pictures that are less than perfect. Paired up next to these gorgeous papers and elements it’s easy to overlook the imperfections in the pictures.
One thing I really wanted to do in this album is leave a lot of transparent areas. I choose the Simple Stories 6×8 page protectors with the 2×2 pockets so I would be able to add lots of the little elements in the pockets and have the transparent feel that I wanted.
Another one of my favorites from this collection are the 3×4 transparencies. I loved using them as is, or trimming them to use in the 2×2 pockets.
The label stickers are absolutely awesome for adding dates to your projects. These are going to be showing up on my project life spreads a lot.
Did you know that November 1st is Digital Scrapbook Day? We’re starting the celebration early with a TLP Blog Hop! My contribution to the hop is a set of “currently” themed wordart, available as 4×6 photo templates (Pictures + Words No. 16) or as a digital stamp set. If you can’t decide which format you prefer, by all means, download both! They are available as free downloads, but only for a limited time, from now thru November 5, 2014. Enjoy! And I’d love to know which format you prefer.
