Hey friends! The Pixels to Pages Journal Block Winter Collection is now live in the shop!!! Memory keepers are LOVING these kits because they offer extra-large, decorative journal cards, giving documenters a little more space to tell their stories than the standard 4x6 or 3x4 journal card allows. To celebrate I am offering a "Buy 3 Get 1 Free" Promo this weekend! Beginning today, November 20th, 2020, when you purchase ANY 3 Journal Block Kits, the 4th one will be free! Place 4 kits in your cart, use promo code WINTER2020 at checkout, and a $5.99 discount will be applied to your order! This offer will end at 11:59pm EST on Sunday, November 22!
Keep reading to view each kit and see what some Santa's Elves created with them! Be sure to read all the way through as there is a freebie at the end of the post!!! For more inso, hop over to my Instagram feed where there are a few more layouts in the "Journal Block" Story Highlights!
I did something a little different with the 4x12 Vertical Journal Card with this release. Instead of it being a “journal card” is now a patterned “filler card.” You will have to rotate it in its placeholder when dropping it into a horizontal pocket so the pattern doesn’t look extra-large. I think you will enjoy having a pattern to accent your pages with!
The Farmhouse Christmas kit follow the same aesthetic as my Christmas Planner! You may be able to use some of the 3x4 and 4x6 cards from either kit on both your scrapbook pages or in the planner!
Carla Jennings created the 6x8 spread by using the 6x8 Vertical Journal Card from the kit as a full page! Great idea!
Teresa Carlucci shares her festive spread, too!
Happy New Year
Let's celebrate the new year with a little sparkle! There is a little digital glitter in this kit. It's the perfect way to add some bling to your pages without the messy clean up of the real stuff!
Here is a spread Ingrid did using the Happy New Year Kit. She used over half of the cards in the kit in this spread!
I love how Heather used the 4x12 Celebrate Journal Card for a Disney Page!
It is still hot here in Florida and the photos these scrappers used in their layouts helped to keep me cool! Check them out:
Sean Eyring, aka "Project Life App Dude," and his family look like they have a blast when it comes to hanging out in the snow! And he's right, that snow beard and eyebrows are EPIC!
Check out these layouts from Dawn Bowra:
She did the above layout in the Project Life App. Can you figure out how? She used some fun techniques here!!! And I love how she placed the photo(s) in the layout below:
The photo Stephanie used in this layout is stunning! Don't you think? Although Stephanie created this layout in Photoshop, it can easily done in the Project Life App using the The Big Shot 4 Template!
Christmas in the Sand–U.S. Version
Not all of us celebrate Christmas in the snow, including yours truly!!! It's about time there was a kit for those who prefer to make a sandman instead of a snowman! Check out the quick spread I did using photos from 2018:
I also experimented with placing a filler card in an Editorial Template and super happy with the result!!!
Christmas in the Sand–Australian Version
I've never seen a Christmas kit geared towards an Australian Christmas. A little while ago I asked my followers from Australia about how they celebrate the Christmas season being in a warm weather climate. I have a lot of followers and students from this beautiful country and I wanted to create a little something for my them. The response to my question was overwhelming! Based on their answers, this is what I came up with!
Susan Bunning has a TON of photos to share in her spread! Read her journaling about these photos! This is exactly why I wanted to create kits for a warm-weather Christmas! Susan placed the 6x12 Christmas In The Sand Vertical Journal Card, into a 4x6 placeholder and arranged it so the top portion of the card is showing. This is a good example of how to experiment with the cards by placing them in a different placeholder that it is intended for! She did the same with the Christmas BBQ filler card-that is actually a 3x4 horizontal filler card–and she used the Free Form Text feature in the PL App to add more text to the card!
Now Elmi doesn’t live in Australia, but in South Africa! Turns out they celebrate in much of the same way Australia does! Elmi got really creative and not only used the Project Life App to make her pages on her Android device, but she used the Over App as well. In addition, Elmi used Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer on her Mac, to accommodate her style of Project Life! While she doesn’t share her pages on social media, she does have a blog you can visit:creativedepths.wordpress.com.
To all of those who provided page samples for the launch of these kits, THANK YOU!!! I appreciate each and every one of you!!!
